More on Dealing with Shame from Brené Brown
Next on Brené’s Top 10 List for dealing with shame and any other low-level emotions includes:
Cultivating a Resilient Spirit – letting go of numbing and powerlessness
RESILIENCY is a higher level of consciousness. I couldn’t find the calibration of resilience, but it likely is of a similar energy field to TOLERANT, which calibrates at 245 on the Map. Learning how to overcome shame will require a certain degree of resiliency to get you there.
Learning how to let go of powerlessness, unworthiness, fear, anger, doubt, resentment, and all of these low-level feelings aligns you with the higher-level energy fields essential to change.
Cultivating Gratitude and Joy – letting go of scarcity and fear of the dark
GRATITUDE & INNER JOY are “Superpowers” in consciousness! They calibrate at 540 on the Map. Use this understanding to re-align yourself with higher-level attractor fields.
If you are harboring lower-level feelings of scarcity and fear, the only way I have come to overcome shame and all of these lower-level feelings is to become familiar with the mechanism of letting go by Dr. David R. Hawkins and practicing how to let go every day.
Cultivating Intuition and Trusting Faith – letting go of the need for certainty
Intuition becomes stronger as we learn how to let go and step into higher levels of consciousness. As Dr. Hawkins likes to point out, letting go is simply removing the blocks to who you really are.
He uses the metaphor of clouds and the sun. The sun is always present (within in); you need to remove the clouds that block the rays of powerful light that you really are.
I understand the yearning for certainty! But as I learned how to let go of my suppressed and repressed emotions, the need for certainty about anything dissolved significantly.
You experience a more balanced, present moment way of life as you unravel the entanglement with lower-level emotions and what Dr. Hawkins likes to call “the narcissistic core of the ego.”
FAITH is a leap in consciousness for most people as it is a high level at 360 on the Map.
HOPE can be more attainable as it calibrates at 310 at the level of WILLINGNESS on the Map.
In Conclusion on How to Overcome Shame
Shame is an impersonal attractor field likely brought about by suppressing and repressing emotions as a child…
“Don’t get mad.”
“Don’t be mean.”
“Don’t be afraid.”
As children, we all likely perceive these instructions guiltily and shamefully as we typically, as children, seek approval from parents, adults, teachers, and friends who didn’t know any better.
These “feeding tones” get buried in our consciousness as they were NOT allowed to be felt and expressed fully as children. (We have feelings for a reason, wouldn’t you think?)
So how can you overcome shame in this world? In the absence of the Map of Consciousness® and understanding the mechanism of letting go, we don’t know any better until we step into serious courage and willingness to take a close look at ourselves.
Now that you have it, you can use the power of the mind, which is the power of reason, rationality, and understanding, to let go of feelings of blame, shame, and guilt, all created from the past as a child and step into true freedom.
You can learn more about how to let go of shame from Dr. Hawkins’s book: “Letting Go, the Pathway to Surrender” and join me on my podcast “Your Weekly Dose of Higher Consciousness” or videocast, which deals with all of this!
