Self-esteem is having confidence on one’s own worth or abilities, self-respect; what we think, feel and believe about ourselves.
Self-worth recognizes “I am greater than all these things.” It is a deep knowing that I am of value, that I am lovable, necessary to this life and of incomprehensible worth. Self-esteem doesn’t work or last long without self-worth.
Hopefully, we all have a sizable number of good things we like about ourselves and a smaller amount of what we don’t like. If we compare our self to the dictates of what our society tells us we need to conform to, we allow the power of an outside entity to judge us. We give up our innate power to choose what is right for us. All of this is done to make someone else feel better about themselves. When you discover and know your worth, you realize that society is all about control and conformity of the individual. You aren’t here to conform. You are here to experience life as you choose. It is your right as a sovereign being.
I ask you to write down a list of all your attributes that are of value in your eyes. Take some time with this. You may discover many qualities about you that have been over-looked. Do not limit your list to gifts and talents. Use personality, character and emotional behaviors. When you are done with your list, give each item a rating from one to ten, ten being the best, one being not so good. The items you score higher show where you are succeeding. The lower numbers show where you feel you need work. Do not score according to what society wants you to think. Score your items to your preference, to what has value to you and those around you.
This is not an exercise to compare yourself with others or how everyone might be judging you. This list is for you to learn more about yourself. It is a personal analysis of how you see your worth and where your worth comes from, the outer and inner qualities. An example of an inner quality might be how open and caring your heart is. An outer quality might be the amount of money you earn.
You are an amazing soul or else you wouldn’t be here on this planet at this time of change. The evolution of Gaia is in full expansion and all life here and throughout the Universe is affected by what is happening here at this time. It is a time of uncertainty, a time of massive personal growth and a time to move into the consciousness of the heart through unconditional love.
Go within and discover the love of the original creator of your soul. It is there waiting for you to come home to the truth of who you are, a soul who is having a human experience for the sake of personal growth on the journey back to connection with the Creator of all that is.
You are blessed. You are powerful. You are love and the beloved.
