How To Deal With Rejection On The Subconscious Level
Accept the rejection
If you want to know how to deal with rejection, you first have to accept rejection. Most of the time, when we are feeling rejected, we reject the rejection. We try to reject that feeling on others, blaming them or praying for revenge.
And that’s what hurts : the anger of being rejected.
You have to learn to feel okay with being rejected. And visualisation can help you with that.
You can close your eyes, relax and connect to your inner joy, and imagine yourself in a place where you’re feeling very relaxed, very secure. When you’re really connected to that place, you imagine a situation from your past or an imaginary situation where you were rejected. Just watch this situation on the screen of your mind, and continue to focus on the feeling of relaxation.
If you feel some anger or sadness or any unpleasant feeling, just go back to your place of joy, relaxation and security. Re-connect to your inner security. And when you’re ready, explore a new situation where you have to deal with rejection. And keep the feeling of security with you.
With some practice, you will be able to accept the rejection and still feel secure.
