Radical Acceptance: How to Put it Into Motion

Radical acceptance is based on the concept that suffering does not come from pain but rather one’s attachment to pain. With roots in Buddhism, radical acceptance helps people overcome their suffering by letting go of emotional attachments. This is not the same as having no emotion. Instead, it’s the intention of not letting pain turn into suffering. 

When you schedule a psychic reading with Jack Rourke, you’ll have the opportunity to discuss acceptance (if this is what’s important to you). Rather than letting your emotions run wild, you’ll find yourself living a healthier, happier and more authentic life. You’ll be able to let go of bitterness and other unhelpful emotions.

Let’s learn more about how to put radical acceptance into motion. 

Observe Your Questioning 

When bad things happen, we often say things like, “It shouldn’t be this way.” Or, “I don’t deserve this.” While it’s natural to feel these ways, you’re also fighting reality. There are very few things we have control over (this article points out seven of them). When you practice radical acceptance, you get better at accepting things as they are – even if they’re not what you wanted or expected. 

Remind Yourself that You Can’t Change Reality 

As you observe your thoughts, bring yourself back to the here and now. You can’t change what’s happening, no matter how unpleasant your circumstances are. Something happened and now you must move forward and adjust. Remind yourself that there are causes for the reality. This is not placing blame on anyone or anything. Rather it’s helping you to see the chain of events.

Practice Acceptance with the Whole Self 

Use accepting self-talk, relaxation techniques, mindfulness or guided imagery to practice acceptance. It’s not easy, but with practice, you’ll become better at it. You can also schedule a psychic reading with Jack Rourke. These readings are far more powerful than just “seeing into the future.” They are insightful and can help you uncover your barriers to acceptance. 

Imagine Accepting Your Reality

As painful as it might be, imagine in your mind’s eye accepting your reality. Your circumstances might seem like they’re 100% unacceptable, but if you rehearse this acceptance in your mind, you may find that it’s not as bad as you think. Allow yourself to feel the emotions that arise – grief, sadness, resentment, bitterness. They might not be pleasant, but burying them deep within will prevent the healing process.

Acknowledge that Life is Worth Living – Even with Pain 

No matter what messages your peers are sending on social media, the fact is that no one’s life is perfect. Everyone has struggles and everyone has ups and downs. Right now, you might be going through a difficult time but this does not mean that it will always be this way. And it does not mean that your life is not worth living. Even with pain, your life has value, worth and beauty.
