The Value of Worth
Value of Worth.
Until recently, I saw abuse as something that others inflict on others. Either through physical acts or verbal and psychological abuse. Yet what about our own thoughts and emotions that we use towards and against ourself? What if when I consider myself unworthy, without value, invisible, too this or not enough that – what if this is in fact abuse of the Self? And what when we feel justified in doing this to ourself, simply because it is self-inflicted and we can pretend that we are not a victim?
So what does abuse have to do with value of worth? As has been explained by many of the visionaries today, when we declare “I Am ………..”, then all that is not THAT will surface to be honoured and released. Took me a while to get this, in particular with regards to abundance. Here I was declaring I Am Abundant and Abundance and guess what was showing up …………. everything that was not abundant and abundance. Did I like this, did this make me feel powerful and a creator? Nope, indeed. I ranted and raved, drove my friends insane and scared the abundance I was asking for away. Finally, I concluded that the Law of Attraction doesn’t work and especially not for me.
Now, several weeks later, humbled and so grateful, I know that not only does the Law of Attraction work, I also have greater awareness as to where I have perpetuated my self-abuse.
– firstly, Law of Attraction works,
– second, it works irrespective of whether I choose consciously, or alternatively by default choice,
– thirdly, by concluding that Law of Attraction did not work for me, I was viewing myself as lacking and without value and worth.
I created and attracted situations and incidents that were lovingly and unconditionally, highlighting for me where and how I was devalueing myself and shooting myself in the foot, as far as my self-worth was concerned. I was faced with a seemingly total lack of abundance. The Universe had been inviting me to really be conscious of my default programme of value and worth playing in the background, i.e. my vibration.
It was brought home to me that nothing occurs in isolation. There is a connectedness to everything and also within us. All that shows up in our daily life truly is a reflection of what is within us. It is essential to step out of the Ego Mind (Solar Plexus) and into our Knowing (Heart Chakra) if we are to fully understand these reflections.
“May your relationship with yourself be so loving, accepting and full of self-compassion, self-esteem and self-caring that you attract people who treat you the same way!” ~Unknown
People will always treat you as you treat yourself. The key is understanding what is showing up – even though it may not be something you can like. As the beautiful Dee Wallace often says, “Love yourself, love yourself, love yourself – and then love yourself even more………”
The value of worth is in BEING YOU! Now that is worthy of value!
