In your journey to eating disorder recovery, connecting with your inherent goodness is a big step to developing self-esteem and self-acceptance. Do you believe in your own inherent goodness?
In the latest episode of Fear Less, an audio series on The Recovery Warriors Show podcast channel, Jessica Flint and Andrea Wells delve into the importance of connecting with one’s inherent goodness and worth as a part of the recovery process.
Connecting with Your Inherent Worth
Inherent goodness is crucial in eating disorder recovery.
It helps you reshape self-perceptions, boost self-esteem, and nurture self-compassion.
It encourages a more positive and accepting relationship with yourself, which is fundamental to the healing process.
Hosts Jessica and Andrea emphasize in the episode that everyone is inherently valuable, regardless of their challenges.
It’s crucial to acknowledge and embrace your inherent wholeness and goodness to overcome feelings of inadequacy.
Embrace your recovered self and choose courage over fear to grow stronger and achieve your desired outcomes in recovery, health, love, and wealth.
Discovering Your True Nature
The hosts also tell a touching story about The Golden Buddha that helps you understand and connect with your true self.
They highlight the significance of recognizing the gold within yourself– the innate qualities, strengths, and worth that may be overshadowed by the presence of an eating disorder.
Don’t forget that you are golden.Jessica Flint
The story goes like this:
In the early 14th century, Thailand housed a revered golden Buddha statue, 9 feet and 8 inches tall, weighing 5.5 tons of gold, valued at approximately $250 million.
For centuries, it was cherished by Buddhists.
In 1767, during a Burmese invasion, monks hid the statue beneath stucco and glass to protect it, sacrificing their lives.
Unbeknownst to anyone, the golden Buddha remained concealed for nearly 200 years.
In the 1950s, during a monastery relocation, a crack in a clay Buddha led to its discovery as a solid gold masterpiece, unveiling its true nature after centuries of obscurity.
This story beautifully illustrates that within each of us, there’s a pure and valuable essence.
However, as we grow, societal influences, family beliefs, and past experiences can cover up this precious core with layers of conditioning and fear.
Recognizing Your Inherent Goodness
To practice recognizing your inherent worth, begin by setting aside moments for self-reflection.
Take time each day to acknowledge your unique qualities, strengths, and the value you bring to the world.
Cultivate self-compassion, treating yourself with the same kindness you’d offer to a friend.
There is so much radiance within you.Jessica Flint
Challenge negative self-talk and replace it with affirmations that reinforce your worthiness.
Surround yourself with supportive and positive influences, and engage in activities that bring you joy and fulfillment.
Remember that your worth is not dependent on external validation or achievements; it’s an intrinsic part of who you are.
Embracing your inherent goodness and worth is a transformative journey that has the power to unlock your true potential.
Take a listen to the full episode and remember that you are inherently deserving of love, healing, and empowerment.
Your inherent goodness shines brightly within you, waiting to be recognized and embraced.
