Approval seeking consciousness is a state of existence driven chronically by the need for approval.
Approval seeking consciousness is very difficult to identify within yourself. We may believe that we are being driven by love, happiness, virtue, when in fact the underlying motive driving most of our decisions is in actual fact the need for approval.
How does approval seeking consciousness develop?
Approval seeking consciousness develops as a consequence of learned behaviour. We slip into approval seeking consciousness when we learn that we are only loved when others are pleased with what we do.
Conversely, when we do not do things that (and to) please others (probably our primary caregivers in the first instance), then we lose love.
A child’s main prerogative is to be loved. If approval is what it takes to receive love then approval is what he will seek.
We all, in this current vibrational environment of planet earth, are subject to some degree of approval seeking consciousness. Some of us are subject to it quite severely.
When we are subject to approval consciousness quite severely then it is highly likely that we will also be vulnerable to anxiety attacks.
The seed of anxiety is the chronic need to seek approval.
In order to overcome approval seeking consciousness, it first starts with recognising the tendency to seek approval from others within yourself.
Once you recognise it within yourself, it’s pretty much job done in terms of overcoming it.
Once you become aware of the specific way in which approval seeking consciousness manifests for you, you are able to set an intention to no longer seek approval as you have done.
Approval seeking consciousness will manifest differently for different people. You may constantly ask others for their opinion or advice, or you may constantly inform people of your decisions before actually making them.
Upon recognising approval seeking consciousness within yourself, you may experience emotions such as anger and frustration, perhaps at your primary caregivers for teaching this to you or perhaps at yourself for allowing it to control your life thus far.
Do know that it was not your primary caregivers who taught this to you, it was the cultural and energetic environment in which you entered earth for this particular lifetime (that you chose).
Once you set the intention to free yourself of approval seeking consciousness, sit back and watch the angels do the magic baby! Your anger will soon surpass, let it come, do not condemn it. It will pass. Your authentic, beautiful self will be waiting for you.
From now on you will seek approval only from yourself 🙂
Peace. Dopeness. Love.
