Some of us think that our lives are destined to be mediocre, that we have no power to bring ourselves into a level of being that makes us feel more competent, complete and appreciated. We feel like we’re lost in our everyday struggles, oblivious to the parts of ourselves that could be helpful. We just sort of amble along, hoping that something will miraculously change and bring us the kind of dynamic life that we think we’re craving. If that sounds like you, then you’re ready to stir up some changes in your life!
Years ago when I was worrying and feeling helpless about my life, I started looking for something that would create changes at a level that weren’t addressed by traditional remedies. When I found out about working with my spirit and the Light*, I suddenly became invigorated with the possibilities that my life actually presented.
When you choose to open a positive pathway into your higher-level capabilities, you’ll become more aware of the factors that block access to your inherent talents. A great deal of the interference that diminishes your self-esteem and creativity originates at the higher level of your being.
What if you’ve been creating the higher-level factors that contribute to such interference because you’ve been accepting and reinforcing your own negative conceptions about yourself? What if you’ve been creating and attracting additional negativity because of those thoughts? Is it possible that other people pick up on your lack of confidence and low self-esteem, in the same way that you pick up on the over-inflated attitudes of some very self-absorbed people? One thing’s for certain: You’re never going to please everyone all the time, and you have to accept that as part of being human.
At one time I was shy and afraid of what others might think of me but, once I started to work with my spirit, my self-perspective changed. I always learn from my interactions with others, whether their opinion appears important or not.
The other day, while I was out for a walk, I stopped to greet a dog on a leash that came running up to me. The owner immediately started to apologize for her pet, but I assured her that I always welcome such greetings. The owner told me that her dog never stops to greet anyone, ever. I considered it a compliment to have such a discerning animal set me apart for a greeting, as though it was her acknowledgment of my harmony within.
How can you begin to accept yourself the way you are, so that you can feel comfortable about being the person you truly are inside? That’s what self esteem’s all about! When you start to love yourself and believe in yourself, you’ll suddenly realize your positive qualities and allow them to flow outward into the world.
As you look at yourself from a positive perspective, accept yourself, then thank yourself and take it from there!
