Loving the parts of ourselves that we don’t like isn’t always easy. Does “embracing yourself” mean you should give yourself a break? Does it mean giving in to all of your desires and cravings, or letting yourself off the hook?
Does it mean staying in bed all day when you feel like it? Or does it mean forcing yourself to go to the gym at 6am because it’s good for you; or working extra hours to get the money you need for that vacation? For most people, there are a lot of conflicting thoughts and feelings around “being good to” themselves.
Here is a step-by-step guide to changing your life by embracing the parts of yourself, both emotionally and physically that you may not like:
What does “Embracing Yourself” mean?
We all have physical aspects of ourselves that we would like to change. Maybe you think your nose is too big, or you’d like bigger breasts, or your hips are too wide, you’re too tall, you’re too short, etc. Whatever the apparent flaw may be, you try and do everything to hide it or get rid of it.
Embracing yourself means loving yourself regardless of the way you are. It means treating yourself as you would someone you value highly.
Most of us are raised with varying degrees of discipline, criticism and judgement; and we tend to take over from where those who raised us left off. We have a tendency to treat ourselves as badly, or worse, than those who had a negative impact on our lives early on.
Being good to yourself means:
- Making choices that are good for your well-being
- Treating yourself kindly
- Speaking of yourself in a kind, compassionate way
- Doing things that make you happy and healthy
- Spending time on things that feel good
- Changing all of the bad memories you’re carrying in your subconscious, so that you are only carrying happy records, providing evidence that you deserve the best

Embracing the embarrassing parts of your body – Step-by-Step
The reason you are ashamed of your physical ‘flaws’ is because of the automatic subconscious programming that is running in the background of your life constantly. To find out more about this programming, how it’s created and how it works, read: The REAL Cause of All Your Problems.
In order to naturally embrace the your flaws, without effort, you need to change the records your subconscious is referring to, that are prompting your current actions, choices and perspectives.
Make the decision to love yourself and your flaws. Remember to treat yourself with compassion and with the same respect you would show someone you love and value.
Address any resistance to this decision by using FasterEFT to flip the “proof” your subconscious is carrying that you shouldn’t embrace your body just as it is. Use the FasterEFT technique to address your bad memories and experiences, to clean out everything that is contaminating your happiness.
Use the FasterEFT technique in the moment to clear and change the habits that cause you to treat yourself badly. This could be not looking at yourself in the mirror because you don’t like what you see, saying unkind things to yourself because of the way you look, depriving yourself of social company because you don’t think you look great etc.

Start to become aware of these self-limiting thoughts and feelings in the moment, and tap on anything and everything that comes up that feels bad or that you know is bad for you. The thoughts given above were just some of the examples.
Self-hate comes in many forms, so you have to be vigilant about what thoughts and feelings you choose to entertain about yourself and your body.
Notice the language you’re using about yourself and to yourself, and tap out the thoughts and feelings behind it and any memories that support it.
Notice the choices you’re making regarding your health, and tap out any detrimental habits such as over-eating and smoking. Use FasterEFT to transform any resistance to healthy choices (like exercise and healthy food) to natural desires.
The aim is to change your current programming that supports body shaming, to allowing yourself to naturally and automatically make better choices for yourself – without needing to force yourself or use willpower.
Making the choice to embrace yourself wholeheartedly, is an important step. Using FasterEFT to clear the programming that has been preventing you from loving your body is essential in order to achieve that goal easily and automatically.
