“Own your worth, then add tax.”
Have you heard this saying? I love this because it perfectly encapsulates the energy of truly understanding what you deserve and then some. If you’re reading this post, you are probably struggling with owning your worth. I get it! I’ve been there too! I stayed in toxic relationships for far too long. I let others take advantage of me. And I never let anyone help me. The journey to understanding your worth can feel challenging because you are battling all that is within you that is telling you that you aren’t enough. But now’s the time to silence those dragons and begin living the way you are meant to: in ultimate abundance. When you know your worth, you can then actually open yourself up to the gifts of the Universe. You can ask for what you really want, without experiencing guilt and shame. Doesn’t that sound nice? The journey starts here. Let’s get into it.
Acknowledge Your Tendency to Self-Sabotage
The main reason why we accept less than we deserve is that we self-sabotage. Our belief system of unworthiness is so embedded into our minds, hearts, and souls that we look for proof that this is the case by purposely ruining opportunities. Think about the last time that you received an opportunity at work. It was a big job and your boss chose you to take care of it. This would be huge for your career. But what do you do? You talk yourself out of the opportunity and beg your boss to give the task to someone else. This is only one example of what self-sabotage looks like but this habit can extend to every area of life: relationships, health, finances, etc. To finally own your worth, start by looking for these tendencies to self-sabotage. By being honest with yourself and your habit of doing this, you open the door to awareness so that you can make a change. The next time you catch yourself giving into the belief of unworthiness, take a breath, acknowledge that this is an old story that you’re done telling yourself, then gently release it using your breath. Keep breathing and affirming that you are releasing this belief system until you feel calm. It will take practice until it gets easier but soon enough that story will be long gone and you’ll make a new story of empowerment.
Do Your Solar Plexus Chakra Work
Within the body there are 7 energy centers called chakras that each have different characteristics regarding different areas of life. The solar plexus chakra is the energy center of self-esteem, inner power, and confidence. When this chakra is unbalanced (which means that the energy is in chaos) one will accept less than you deserve, willingly give up inner power, and lacks confidence. On the other hand, when this chakra is in balance, you own your worth, you graciously accept gifts from Universe, and you are in touch with your inner power. The root of your belief of unworthiness stems from this chakra. There are a few ways to balance the solar plexus chakra including using affirmations, meditating, and energy healing.
Working with a professional practitioner is a great option for those looking for support on their healing journey. Doing so, gives you extra help during the balancing and cleansing process. I offer intuitive healing sessions which combine Reiki, chakra balancing, and intuitive healing. If you’re interested in having a one-on-one session to work on your solar plexus chakra and more, book with me here.
You Are One with the Universe
We all came from one true source. Depending on your personal beliefs this could be God, a higher power, the Universe, or just cosmic energy. You literally have the universe flowing through your veins. You are a spiritual being having a human experience. When you realize the power you hold by simply existing, you awaken to your impact in this world. And with that, you realize how worthy you are of abundance. Everyday remind yourself that you are one with the Universe, meaning that you have the ability to alter your reality simply by using your inner power. This also brings me to my next point.
It’s your birthright to experience love
As a being of the Universe, your purpose here on earth during your experience as a human is to experience love. Love is the default energy of the Universe therefore so is ours. The more we align with the Universe, the more we see with this perspective. You will see love in all interactions. You will see love in the streets. You will see love in nature. Eventually you will begin to see yourself in the same light. Little by little, you will then realize just how worthy you of infinite abundance. Most importantly, you will start claiming it.
Use the affirmation, “I am here to experience love” to claim your birthright. I loved this affirmation so much that I designed a mug with it. Check it out!
Know That It Is Safe to Be Powerful
In this world, as a woman especially, it’s hard to feel powerful. Everyday we are being bombarded by messaging that tells us to sit back and let the men take care of everything. Know this, it is safe for you to be powerful. You know how to do so in a way that doesn’t harm others. Doing so will actually inspire others to join your lead. Soon others will step into their power and demand that they receive what they deserve and then some! Remind yourself that this is also your birthright. Practice stepping into your power by using the word ‘no’ more often, allowing yourself to receive help, and going after what you desire. The Universe will be cheering you on and helping you along the way.
You have so much power within you that has been unnurtured for too long! Now is the time to step up and own your worth like the badass that I know you are. Start small by taking action every day. Create awareness of your tendencies to self-sabotage, do your solar plexus work, awaken to your oneness with the universe, reclaim your birthright to experience love, and finally trust that it is safe for you to be powerful. I’m getting chills just thinking about the person you are becoming. Go for it.
