Daily Angel Oracle Card, from the Wisdom Of The Golden Path Oracle Card deck, by Toni Carmine Salerno: Self-Worth
“You have a habit of undervaluing your talents and capabilities. This is due to a general sense of low self-worth. And yet there is so much that is wonderful about you. Many around you can see this but somehow, you do not. It is time to dissolve the distorted view you have of yourself, time to see your unique beauty and appreciate and value the real you. The following exercise will help increase your sense if self-worth. It will help you connect with and feel the light of infinite creativity and love that you hold within you.
Place your hands over your heart, close your eyes and relax. Take a deep breath, inhale, hold the breath for a moment and gently release the breath. Continue breathing this way and feel a soft, golden light within the centre of your heart. This soft golden light is the true and Divine you. It is the unchanging light of unconditional live, a light which existed before the dawn of time and will continue to glow forevermore. Feel this Divine light flowing into your body, your mind, thoughts and emotions. Allow it to illuminate your heart and mind. Allow it to embrace you.
Repeat the following affirmations as often as you can every day either out loud or in the silence of your heart. Feel each word. When you are able to see your true worth everyone will see it.
I am golden light.
I am Divine love.
I am infinite worth.
I am a channel through which the gold river of live flows.
I am an ocean of pure gold.
I am worthy of love.
I am love.”*
We get so caught up in the outside of ourselves, who we are through someone else’s eyes; our perceived value is what we are presenting to the world at first glance. We are fragments of the Divine; we are all connected. We are here to shine our light on the world in our own unique and beautiful way. I encourage you to step away from “who you are” according to how you look, your personality, your job, what you own, where you live and what you drive; and look deeply and quietly inside. We always teach our kids not to judge a book by it’s cover, yet we live our lives in front of beer commercials that basically say “if you are beautiful, you will have a fun and amazing life.” It’s so frustrating to me that ad campaigns on all forms of media will tell you that if you are not living the life of your dreams, you are obviously not using their product. (Which, by the way, 9 times out of 10 is probably toxic for humans). So, we walk around feeling we are not sexy enough, not thin enough, not rich enough, not young enough, not conforming enough. Shall I go on? No wonder so many people have a negative inner dialogue playing over and over in their heads.
So who are you then?? Well that is up to you to discover! And don’t worry, it’s easier than you think. That is what meditation is all about. Yes, you have to turn off your phone; actually all the screens need to have a time out. Find some precious time to yourself, undisturbed. Relax, breathe, listen; observe. What does your higher self have to share with you?
Don’t have time for all that? Well I guess you can wait, after all it’s only unleashing your full potential of unconditional love, self acceptance and infinite possibility. (Something beer, fast food, and Disney Land actually can’t do for you.) It’s totally up to you to decide when you are ready.
