Mindfulness is key to achieving wholeness. The path to wholeness involves loving and accepting all parts of ourselves, including those we may have disowned or suppressed. Many of us have disowned parts of ourselves due to early conditioning. Parents, teachers and culture shaped us in profound ways, altering our image of our true selves.
For instance, if you were taught to always be strong and never show your vulnerability, you may feel inadequate and frequently experience self-doubt. In reality, there is nothing wrong with you. Mindfulness shines the light on discrepancies such as this and reveals truths about your whole authentic self.
