Embracing Your Worth: A Journey to Self Love and Success

You are WORTHY.

We go through life, almost floating along, hanging on by a thread, moving from point A to point B in search of something better, something stable, something concrete – something we are “missing.” In my mind’s eye, I see us tied at the ankles, kind of anchored to the ground with our bodies floating in the air, arms swinging in all directions grabbing for whatever sense of peace we can find. Sometimes we’ll catch something, coddle it, and when it floats away, we feel loss, so we begin searching and grasping again. It’s cyclical.

I think of newborn babies, root chakra developing, that sense of stability as we connect to the earth’s energy – very different from where we all come from. It’s much denser here. So when we find something that brings us comfort, of course we’d be prone to clinging on to it.

What we need to really look at – and here’s the great paradox we all know and understand conceptually, but may not fully believe – is that what we need to grasp at is within ourselves. We were all born perfect. As we travel through life we are still just that: perfect. Incidents occur, we have hiccups, our environment impacts who we are and tells us who we should be – and we absorb and accept that, often as a means of survival.

But, herein lies the big question:

How can outside sources tell us who we are if we already know this inherently? And, more importantly, how do we know who we really are if it’s been dictated to or expected of us?

Here’s my answer, and correct me if I’m “wrong.” No one can tell you who you are. Period.

And, my response to question #2? We are all born with a very important purpose. We are all incredibly worthy – NECESSARY – in the eyes of God, our Source, our Creator, Higher Power. You are worthy. We are all born with a very specific purpose that matches perfectly with everyone else’s Higher Purpose. It is our Soul’s Purpose and we wrote, with the help of the Powers that Be, our Soul’s Contract which prepared us to expand once we arrived here. 

That being said, there is no reason to compete, no reason to feel less-than, no reason to worry about what other people think of us or what we are doing as long as it’s in line with our Higher Selves. And there is EVERY reason to feel strongly about who we are at our core. We are absolutely worthy and necessary. Our inner compasses, our hearts and passions, direct us.

Consider the things that make you laugh. Consider the activities that energize you. Reflect on those people in your life who inspire and encourage you. Breathe that into your heart. Ask and ask again to manifest more of that in your life! These are the aspects of YOU, of your SOUL, that strengthen and empower your authentic nature and higher truth. As you perpetuate these reminders of who you are, your cycle becomes a healthier flow of self-love and acceptance. That is the cyclical we’re seeking!


Every morning and night, wake up and go to sleep telling yourself that you are worthy, successful, and loved. We all know the saying, “Fake it ’til you make it.” In other words, you may not believe what you are telling yourself initially, but as a teacher and mentor for almost 30 years now (wow), I can tell you that the more you repeat them, the more they become part of who you are. They become YOU.

You are worthy, successful, and very loved. You are blessed and absolutely necessary to everyone who surrounds you. As you believe this in yourself, you will begin to see it in others around you. This is where true joy and peace spread – it starts with you.

Always sending love!
