It's on the strength of observation and reflection that one finds a way.  So we must dig and delve unceasingly.

– Claude Monet

Let's discover our worthiness and within it, our greater capability.

This week, we dig and delve deeper into our understanding of our own selves to realize that we can handle life's challenges with competency and grace.  With our observation we can prove that we are worthy and deserving of love and happiness.

Our self-esteem is one of our deepest psychological needs.

We are generally our worst critics and our judgments of ourselves dictate how fully we allow ourselves to live and love. It can be said that our “concept of self tends to be our destiny”. It is our higher self that knows the truth of who we are without judgment or analysis. In this segment, we look at our higher self.

Let's begin, with a pause.


There are times in our life when we are in awe of our own wisdom and abilities.

Those times may feel fleeting but we intuitively know that if we could live our life in this state of awe, gratitude, and wisdom, our lives would be transformed.

Bring yourself into the moment with three long, slow breaths.

  • Do a body scan and become aware of how your body feels in this moment.
  • If you are feeling stress or resistance, acknowledge it and then shake it off (literally or mentally).
  • Three more long, slow breaths.
  • Remember a time when you were in awe of your own wisdom.
  • See if you can reinvent the feeling place of this experience.
  • Call upon your higher self.
  • Ask for guidance and awareness as you move through this segment.
  • Document any observations.

What is one emotion or feeling you enjoy tapping into?


My higher self is always with me.

I openly celebrate the wonder of my being.

What is one way you will celebrate the wonder of your being today?


Let's celebrate our Beauty!

We spend a lot more time berating ourselves for what we haven't done, didn't do right, or missed doing than we do celebrating our wisdom and compassion. As a tribute to the moments that we spoke with grace and clarity at exactly the right time, chose a path based on our own passion, followed our intuition, or witnessed synchronicity, we acknowledge the Beauty that is our higher self.

  • Document every remembrance or experience where you listened and followed the guidance of your higher self.

What is one experience that you remember hearing and following the guidance of your intuitive Beauty?
