Recently, Intuitive Astrologer, Danielle Paige shared on insightful blog posting about the full moon in Sagittarius set to begin June 12, 2014 and lasting until June 15, 2014 (Paige, 2014). She also mentioned how Saturn's opposition to Venus is challenging us to examine our "values" and feelings of "self worth" (2014). The synchronicity of Paige's blog and the recurring issue of "self worth" is a strong indication that this topic is timely and its discussion is needed. Issues surrounding self worth, self confidence, and self love have been a constant challenge for many.
There are several factors that cause us to develop feelings of unworthiness. Many of these feelings can be traced back to childhood. Some of the factors that contribute to a lack of self confidence and self worth include: a history of abuse, neglect, violence, criticism, abandonment and mistreatment. These feelings of unworthiness are often reflected back to us in the form of relationships that perpetuate these challenges in order for us to heal them. If these feelings of unworthiness are not healed, they will reappear in our relationships over and over again.
Healing feelings of worthlessness begins when we recognize the beauty and value of ourselves. The adventure of self love and learning to value ourselves comes as we recognize our gifts and talents. Once these gifts and talents are discovered then it is up to us to develop them and use them as a service to humanity. Self worth evolves as you begin to see yourself as a unique, capable being of light who is loved. Your contributions are needed in order to assist humanity in its ascension to higher levels of consciousness.
Humanity needs your art, music, writing, cooking skills, counseling, vision, athletic abilities, poetry, dance, or whatever gift you possess that brings you the most joy. If you are not sure about your gift, think about what you do for fun. When we become involved in the hobbies that bring us the most joy, time seems to fly as we experience feelings of timelessness and creativity. Think back to those hobbies that brought you the most joy when you were a child. Humanity needs your light to shine.
The Earth needs your talents and gifts, too. Remember that the Earth is a living being of light as well. Some refer to the Earth as Gaia. Just as you possess chakras, or energy centers, so too does the Earth. We connect with the Earth as energy beings and are often called to certain locations, or Earth chakra centers, to assist us on our spiritual journey towards self love and self worth.
Planetary chakra centers are found all over the world. Some of these locations include Kilimanjaro, Sedona, Maui, Mount Shasta, Machu Picchu, Mount Fiji and other sacred sites. As we learn to value ourselves and connect with the energies of the Earth, our highest potential will begin to manifest and teachers will appear. The experiences we have in these "power spots" contribute to us learning to trust ourselves and honor our intuitive guidance.
Self worth means honoring yourself. We honor ourselves as we learn to trust our inner voices. Meditation is a wonderful way to tune into your intuitive voice. It is a good idea to meditate at the same time everyday. Fifteen minutes is enough time to receive its healing benefits. The more you begin to trust your intuition, the stronger it will become. Your inner knowing will be reflected in "coincidences." You will begin to find your self in the right places at the right times.
Opportunities will begin to appear in your life to allow you to live the life you always wanted. The books you read will contain messages that you needed to hear. The songs on the radio will contain lyrics that have special meaning to you. All of these instances are signs that are guiding you and letting you know that you are on a path leading you toward feelings of worthiness and self love.
The people we meet often give us opportunities to remind ourselves that we are worthy, we are valuable and we are loved. Don't be afraid to take a leap of faith. Take advantage of the opportunities that are presenting themselves to you that are for your highest good. How will you know what is for your highest good? Your inner voice and emotional response will let you know if you are on the right path or not.
Your angels and guides surround you continuously and send you love and support. Trust that you are protected as you make changes in your life. The goal is to live a life that is aligned with the Divine Will. Remember that you are worthy because you are divine.
