The Show This Post Refers To YBC Show: The Truth: Shane Shares Louise Hay
- Do you ask for help?
- If you ask for help do you feel needy?
- Why is it so hard to ask for help?
Last Sunday on, Your Beautiful Child Radio, I shared my current truth, and it was not pink and sparkly. (It was a little lack luster, or rather it needed some sparkle help.) This past couple of days were challenging and (before the show) I had categorized everything I was thinking feeling and experiencing as WACK… Here I am, being on this awareness journey for quite a bit now, I realized, yet again, how much time and energy I spend on judging myself. I give myself labels, criticize, compare and scare myself with a ton of frightening thoughts. It was hard to get a smile on my face.
Here is why if you are a parent, you can turn to your child for help. Children (typically younger than 5) feel no judgement, they wear their truth like a badge of honor,
- they share their need for attention (loud and clear)
- ask for help in any way they can
- they crave attention and make demands if they do not get it
- They think the world is about their needs first
Why have we stopped being and thinking this way?
The time I spent with my little clients, brought me out of my head and into the present. It’s almost impossible to be anywhere else when in the presence of a child. So parents who deal with judging themselves, depression or anxiety: Use your children to guide yourself back to being present and grounded.
Here it was Saturday (again) and my radio show is to be recorded the next day, and I am to inspire and spread the message of JOY. I asked myself, “how on earth could I do this?!?!” I was judging the way I was feeling to be a horrific depressed state of being. Well the truth was, I wasn’t so comfortable sharing this, so I decided to make a shift. I picked up a book recommended to me several weeks back, Louise H. Hay’s, “You Can Heal Your Life” and I began to read. Once again, I felt AH HA! A book to the rescue. A woman who was talking to me! I could find the help I needed without actually talking to anyone. Then I found a talk of hers online (free) that I also found to be a great tool, (see below.)
You see this is a problem for me, to ask for help. I didn’t reach out to any friends,and I cancelled plans I made. I seem to always forget that have an ego that may be bigger than I’d like it to be, and not only does this get in my way, why not turn to someone and share, and ask what should I do? Am I afraid to look weak? Who could be so important that could judge me as weak?!?!? HAHAHA ONLY ME!
So in the privacy of my home, I went to my bookshelves. I began to use Louise’s advice, her words and her suggestions and I began to feel different. I began to once again begin to feel the possibility of loving myself. I am here to declare I am loving and lovable, and I am here to say I am also human and sometimes I need a little help.
P.S. Even the people that seem to have “it all” together also require help.
Here is a talk by Ms. Hay that helped me: http://hayhouse.edgeboss.net/hhus/audio/wc/gifts/0911/louisehay_howtoloveyourself_082911.mp3
