5 Minute Technique to Stop Seeking Approval

I have been asking for months to have a better relationship with my parents.

We had a huge fight and all the forgiveness work in the world wasn’t giving me any inclination to pick up the phone to reconnect with them.

I woke up one morning with the realisation that I no longer require approval from myself or anyone else.

It was a real Aha moment for me. Intellectually I already knew this, but it had never really sunk in until I surrendered my question and knew that it would be sorted out on a level beyond my cognitive mind.

It’s time to stop seeking approval from my parents, my friends, from me!

So, I’m lying in bed with this sense of strength coursing through me and came up with a little technique that I’m sure is nothing new, but it was new to me and if it feels right to you, you can use it too.

Step 1.

Picture a person, your business/work, body or anything that pops into mind. (One at a time)

Step 2.

Say to the image, “I no longer require your approval.” (Repeat until you feel clear)

Step 3.

Say to the image, “You no longer require my approval.” (Repeat until you feel clear)

Step 4.

When you sense a release from Step 2 and 3 say to yourself, “I no longer require my approval.” (Repeat until clear)

Step 3 was the biggie for me. It’s amazing how arrogant we are believing that others require our approval over what they do in their lives!

Hence, no need for approval.

When we let go of our belief that we are on earth to serve as some sort of policing system to uphold the standards of society, we will be free to be our true selves which is more often than not someone spectacular.

Are you ready to let go of approval?

Could you?

Would you?


How about now!
