“You, yourself as much as anybody in the entire universe deserve your love and affection.”-Buddha
Self esteem is a term that is used in psychology to reflect a persons overall feeling of worth in themselves. This is one of the biggest fights of my life and I know it is one that many other people have. We all have dreams, goals, and aspirations but all too often are over accepting of the fact that we don’t deserve to win in this game of life that we are all playing. In reality, this couldn’t be farther from the truth. As tough as this world that we live in seems to be, the truth is that we are usually a million times stronger than we ever give ourselves credit for.
You surely will struggle to ever help others or make other people happy if you don’t tap into personal happiness first. If you walk around being a grumpy person and miserable with the hand you have been dealt then it is highly unlikely that another will want to walk with you in life.
Daily meditation is a huge helper in this situation. A helper that I have been using lately is a daily affirmation cd that can be listened to in your car as well as before you go to bed at night. Let the cd play as you sleep and you can get the same benefits as when you are awake. The one that I currently recommend is simply called “Self Esteem” by Steven Halpern. There are also many gemstones that can be helpful in building a feeling of self worth, value, and esteem. Sun stone brings light to all situations. Rose quartz gives you that feeling of un-judging self love, it is also helpful in helping you to sway your opinion yourself if you don’t think that you deserve love in your life. Carnelian brings confidence to you and also helps you to hold things together and help you believe in your goals.
Natural Herbal remedies that are a help towards helping one to cope with building self esteem. I am currently using St. Johns Wort and it is working wonders. You can also use ginseng or chamomile. There are many other herbs that are helpful in the situation. You can either find an herbalist and they can help you with this. I went to our local vitamin shop and they were very helpful towards steering me in finding the herb that would help me.
