What Is Self-Improvement?
Self-improvement has become mainstream. In recent years, since writing an article and sending it to the article site, I note that the category Self-improvement has recently emerged when it never existed. For me, this is very good news.
But what does “personal improvements ” actually mean? What do we really improve when we improve? And what do we improve?
Each of us has two “creatures”: a wounded creature and our central creature. Our central form is our true manifestation, our natural soul, our essence. Our main existence is our desire, our joy, our gifts, and talents, our ability to love, our creativity. We enter this life as a central being, and when our Father loves and appreciates this creature, we continue to develop our talents and talents naturally given by the Lord and to manifest the fullness of our beings. This creature wants to increase by learning the skills necessary to express himself fully.
But when self is not seen or rewarded in the way we need, we create an alternate self, the self that is, we hope, will control the love we need and the pain that we can not manage: the self that helps us feel Safe. It is our false selves, our wounded creature, our ego. This self is full of false beliefs that we are absorbed in as we grow, believes that ultimately limit our true existence. This self does not need to be improved, it needs healing.
The term “personal improvement ” can sometimes be a bit misleading because we do not want to improve. We don’t want to improve the way we lie, manipulate and avoid our efforts to control how to get love and avoid pain. Moreover we don’t want to improve our many dependence on substance and process. We do not want to increase our anger, obedience, withdrawal, and resistance.
Do you want to heal it?
Healing and enhancement are not the same.
We can certainly improve ourselves in terms of skill. In fact we can improve in sports, art, music, writing, cooking. We can improve our health and well-being by improving our diet and exercise programs. We can improve the knowledge we need to succeed in terms of work and money. Also we can improve our relationships by acquiring new communication skills. But what happens if acquiring new knowledge and skills does not improve our health, our ability to make money or our relationships? What if learning new skills doesn’t give us more joy and inner peace? This may mean that we must eliminate the underlying fears and false beliefs that make us anxious, depressed, stressed, guilty, ashamed, self-pulling, angry, guilty or sad.
Sometimes an increase in form means only a single exercise skill and at other times it means that we must participate in a profound healing process. For example, many people try to improve their health by losing weight and exercising. But if your food addiction covers unhealed pain, you may not be able to easily change your diet. They may need to open up to the healing process to finally improve.
When you are really trying to improve but find yourself stuck and unable to thrive, or find that you have no joy or inner peace, you may want to open up the possibilities that pain and trust The unhealed can obstruct your pain it is easy to improve when nothing obstructs the road. But if you have an old erroneous belief about your suitability and value, this belief can prevent you from taking acts of love on your own behalf. All your efforts to improve yourself will not give you the satisfaction you are looking for if you have beliefs that are preventing you to fully express yourself your true center. If you are stuck, you need to look for a healing process, such as the internal liaison process we teach, that will help you get out of your limiting fears and beliefs. Healing this fear and limiting beliefs will open the door for you to improve your life in every way.
