I felt led to write about a passionate emotion that has plagued everyone at least once in their life and that is "jealousy"!
Oh yes, that green eyed monster that rears it's ugly head when self doubt, insecurity and fear oozes into our lives!
I had a conversation years ago with someone who felt jealousy was a "positive" emotion and that it was a way of expressing love for your spouse or partner.
They were taken aback when I whole heartedly disagreed!
Jealousy is based on fear, the fear of losing something or someone. Over a prolonged period of time, that fear will eat away at your relationship like rust on a car. Before you know it, the relationship becomes toxic, spirals out of control and eventually disintegrates.
The law of attraction states: "What you think about, you bring about" - one of my favorite quotes that I apply to my daily thoughts.
The more you think about jealousy and everything that means to you in your life right now, the more situations you will attract that creates more jealousy. It becomes a visicious cycle, one that you need to stop - TODAY!
Prolonged fear also leads to disease in the body. It shows up as tension, anxiety, nervousness, worry, doubt, insecurity and unworthiness.
We must reprogram our fears and replace them with faith so that our bodies don't deteriorate, leaving us sick and disease ridden - have no doubt, fear will eat away at your body just like rust on a car!
Replace that fear with love for yourself!
You can do that by stopping the criticism, stop the self loathing, stop the need to control others!
I have written a tapping script that may help you through this process.
If you are new to this blog and unfamiliar with the tapping process, please see the "introduction to tapping" link at the top of this page.
It will provide you with everything you need to know!
As always, please change the words to fit your current situation
Karate chop point:
"Even though I am consumed with jealousy, I deeply and completely love and accept myself”
"Even though I have always been a very jealous person, I accept this feeling and everything it means to me”
"Even though I don't know if I want to let go of this feeling, I love who I am anyway"
