DAILY SPIRITUAL NUGGETS: 31 Days of Empowerment – Day 3 “Self-Esteem to Empowerment”
Meditative Thought: I once heard a spiritual leader say, “If you are looking for self-esteem, do estimable acts.” I believe there is a more expansive way of understanding that principle. Self-esteem comes from an awareness of who and what you are, which then leads to participating in estimable acts. When we see our true divine self and recognize our oneness in the Universe, our overall consciousness is elevated; we begin to love ourselves, and this in turns leads to admirable action. Everything we do come from the knowing of who we are and that is true empowerment.
Today’s Spiritual Assignment: Today, define what self-esteem mean to you. Make a list of all the things that you can do to elevate your awareness that you truly are. Prayer and meditation are at the top of the list for connecting with your divine self. Choose one task, small or great, it does not matter. While you are participating in that assignment, remember who and what you are. Remind yourself that ‘you do because you are;’ not the reverse. At the end of the day, journal about your experience.
Affirmation: Just for this moment…just for this breath, I recognize my self-esteem comes from my connection with God. And so it is, and so I let it be.
