Self-Loathing: 15 Signs to recognise self-hate and Why it Happens

If you don’t meditate already, I encourage you to download an app like InsightTimer (which I use every day – and no, I’m not being paid to promote it). There are thousands of free meditations and I almost guarantee that you’ll find something that resonates with you after browsing for a couple of minutes.

One of the greatest discoveries I’ve made is that mindfulness and meditation can be practiced any time, anywhere, and with anything. The beauty is that it can become a way of life, a constant doorway to freedom from suffering. And that is the true beauty of practices such as these.

Hating Yourself is Based on a Simple Misunderstanding

As I mentioned above, soul loss is at the very root of self-loathing. When we are disconnected from the Divine – in whatever form that comes for us – we feel empty, dead, and lost inside.

The easiest way to re-establish a connection with your soul (which is your True Nature) is through mindfulness and meditation.

Mindfulness reconnects you with the present moment which is where all the magic happens, and meditation helps you to move past your ego and experience your soul.

Mindfulness and meditation also help you to deal with self-loathing thoughts by becoming aware of them. Once you become aware of them, you become an observer of them, rather than being lost in them. It’s kind of like the difference between being the dramatic movie, and sitting back in the movie theater and watching the movie in a relaxed manner.

Hating Yourself is Based on a Simple Misunderstanding

You are a child of the Universe and you are here for a reason.

Who has the right to say otherwise? (Answer: no one.)

The only way you can truly understand this for yourself is to start your own spiritual journey – to be the rebel, the lone wolf that revolts against your thoughts, your ego that likes to make you feel worthless.

To refuse to be tamed by your conditioning, by what your mind wants is your birthright.

It’s time to step up and reclaim your self-sovereignty.
