Our sense of worth and how we feel about ourselves mainly determines how fulfilled we feel, and how rich and gratifying our lives are.
Self-esteem and Self-worth are defined as followed.
Self-esteem is your relationship with yourself and your perception of who you are and how you are doing in the world.
High Self-esteem is:
Self-worth is your innate value as one of the creations in the universe. Your innate worth is not dependent on what you do, how well you are doing, how you feel about yourself, or how others perceive you. We are all worthy of existence. We all have our own gifts and strengths that bless the world. Without your unique presence there is a small vacant space, and that space cannot be filled by anyone but you.
A note on unworthiness - Even though our self-worth wants to be naturally felt and known, some of us feel worthless at our core. And to compensate for this feeling, we may try to prove we are useful and that we have value. We may perform the role of ‘the hard worker’, ‘the entertainer’, ‘the compliant one’… any role that proves we have worth. But all the compensating does not heal the core pain of actually feeling invaluable. Feeling worthless may be the root cause of your current situation. At the core of all problems there is an experience of separation from your soul, from oneness, from the divine and from the truth. When you recognize your connection and feel your true divine worthiness, the problem is solved. You may have drawn this card to see if there is a core feeling of unworthiness that is causing the present problem or situation. If you don’t have any feelings of unworthiness, look for ways you may be compensating which may hide the feeling from you.
You may also have drawn this card to help you reflect on how you can increase your self-esteem. Reflect on the list of things that make up high self-esteem and see any areas that can help raise it.
Increasing your self-esteem and remembering your natural born worth will increase your happiness and contentment. It will give you the desire and courage to share yourself and your gifts with the world!
