I remember when my view of my self worth had been very low I hadn't actually realised it until I read the following message I received from Abraham:
'Worthiness, in very simple terms, means I have found a way to let the Energy reach me, the Energy that is natural, reach me. Worthiness, or unworthiness, is something that is pronounced upon you by you. You are the only one that can deem yourself worthy or unworthy. You are the only one who can love yourself into a state of allowing, or hate yourself in a state of disallowing. There is not something wrong with you, nor is there something wrong with one who is not loving you. You are all just, in the moment, practising the art of not allowing, or the art of resisting.'
I was indeed practising the art of not allowing - not allowing myself to receive the abundance that I so truly deserve. Somehow I had become blocked and was feeling that I was not at all worthy. And it certainly didn't feel very good.
Fortunately, this missive from Abraham resonated with me on many levels. It made me remember just how self destructive negative thinking can be. This is something I teach and coach on, and I know this is true, but I am just as liable to negative thoughts as anyone else, although I do endeavour to keep thinking positively since it definitely benefits me, and therefore my clients, so much more.
I thought about this for quite a while, and it came to me that I have not been giving myself the recognition that I so richly deserve. I have been hiding my light under a bushel, and that is now going to stop. It also made me stop and think about how I felt when I was going through a divorce. I felt even worse then, I had absolutely no self esteem or feelings of self worth. I thought, at that time, I would never be able to hold my head up again, let alone change my life. I felt there was no way out of this situation, I would never be confident again. But I did change my life and the way I see myself and it has made such a huge difference to my life.
I have so much to offer my current and potential clients and my passion is in helping people to become not just who they really are, but the very best version of themselves. And with modern technology, anyone in the world can access a coach of their choice via Skype, phone, instant messaging and so many other ways.
My own self worth has increased dramatically since I began writing this and will continue to do so, especially as I remind myself of all my successes. That doesn't mean I have a big head, I don't, I know my own self worth and I am proud of it. I am worthy and I shall not be wasting my time or energy on negative thoughts any longer.
