3 Ways to Have Better Self Esteem

Here are 3 Ways to Have Better Self Esteem:

1) Retrain your brain to notice the things you like about yourself.  Use positive self speak, because your spirit believes what you say about yourself.

2) Improve yourself.  Learn something new and do something for yourself that makes you feel good.

3) Change from the inside out.  You become what you radiate out, so if you’re cranky and grumpy you’re going to look that way.  If you use positive self speak that makes you feel good, you’re going to feel and look good.

Making Plans & Adapting

 

You can know that you’re really committed to following through with your plans if you make a plan that works for you personally.

Self-sabotage happens when you create a plan that you know you can’t follow through with.

For example, say that you want to start a meditation practice and eventually you want to work up to 30 minutes a day of meditation because you know that it would benefit you.

Mentally; you’d have more clarity, physically; it would benefit your health, spiritually and emotionally; it would help you feel more centered.

There are all these benefits that you know it would help you with – but if you start off by saying, “I’m going to meditate 30 minutes a day,” and then a week later you’re like, “Well it’s Sunday, I’m going to sleep in instead of doing my meditation; I feel good so I’m going to take this morning off.”

That is self-sabotaging, but if you start with something that you definitely know you can do, like say, “Well I definitely know I can start with 5 minutes a day and I can stick to that no matter what.”

So you stick with that and eventually it feels natural to you.

There are all these Psychology studies that say it takes 21 – 30 days to break a habit.  So, if you say “I can definitely start with 5 minutes and no matter what, no excuses, I’m going to commit to the 5 minutes a day.”

You can remind yourself of the benefits – “It’s going to make me feel so good, and it is already making me feel so good, and I feel so calm and centered and stable and clear…” and just keep giving yourself that motivation, and then when you get to the end of the 30 days it feels so natural for you that you can increase it to 10 minutes.

You just keep going until it becomes natural to you because of course, at first, lifestyle changes don’t feel natural.

You’re like, “Why am I doing this??  It doesn’t make sense…” and then you remind yourself of the benefits, and you continue with it until you’re like, “Wow, I did all these things and I really did make this change, because I care about myself and I’m committed to doing what makes me feel good.”

Another level to this is if there’s an event or project you’re working on like a book, or an art project.  When you do that there’s an energy that you bring through and you change things in this reality.

When you participate in life and change reality, life responds.  You want to leave room or the unexpected to happen, because things may not go how you expect.

You want to be a part of that flow of life where you’re bringing through your creative expression and sharing your love with the world and creating events and planning ahead for certain things to happen.

But you also have to give room for the unexpected to happen and just to see how life responds to that and how you respond to it – to the changes that you’re bringing through.

Even though you do need to give yourself that time and space, and be patient with yourself and gentle with yourself, you still need to make the plan and follow through with what you say you’re going to do.

Make your plans and play your part, because if you don’t do anything then nothing will change.  Getting out there and creating and working on creative projects may not turn out how you expect, but if you don’t do anything then nothing will change.

The Magician is a reminder that our thoughts & words are very powerful, and as we speak, we create.

It’s time to align your will with the Divine Plan for your life.

The Empress reminds us that there is a flow to the abundance of life, and to be a part of it all we must do is step into that flow.

If any part of you is resistant & holding on when you should be letting go, you’re separating yourself from that flow.

Surrendering your will to the Divine will means that if you fee divinely guided to something, you work through your own resistances or understanding of why you should do it.

The 6 of Pentacles means that there’s an exchange of resources.  Resources include time, energy, money, etc.

We need to balance out the giving and receiving in our lives to keep the flow going.

Things aren’t always as they appear.  One person’s success may not look like success to someone else.

You don’t have to wait for someone to come along and give you what you think you need, because maybe you need to be exactly where you are now so you can be the one to make a different choice.

Weekly Cards 2/27 – 3/5

Happy New Moon! 

There’s something refreshing about New Moons.

While the slow build up in the week before the new moon may be begrudgingly painful as we release and work through difficult emotions…

The New Moon gives us a chance to start fresh, and feel lighter, with a clean slate to work with.

This New Moon is also with a Solar eclipse which has to do with our identity.

What if we were to harness the creative power and genius that’s available to us?

There is a way to get closer to God and feel Divinity flow through you.  Let the Goddess open up all your channels, energizing every fiber of your being with electricity.

Feel the giant wings of Archangel Michael shielding you.  Feel the Angelic wings of Isis spreading across your back.

Feel your own Angelic nature.

Pisces is a time of connection with our Spirituality.

“What do I believe?” is an extremely important question.

Find out if you have any unanswered questions and answer them.

One false belief can be a loophole that unravels your whole belief system so it can also be a time of great transformation that’s not always easy.

That’s why the Destroyer archetypes are coming through – Sekhmet, Kali, Inanna.  To bring attention to our own weakest links within ourselves so we can be stronger.

We need to get to the root of it and figure out why it’s there.  Heal, acknowledge, and honor it, in order to transform it.

Heal the core wound or the pattern will repeat itself.

Cards:

Hanged Man:  Suspense, waiting, letting go of control, spiritual awakening, illumination, enlightenment, perspective, world turned upside down.

Empress:  Divine Feminine.  Calling forth manifestation of abundance, patience, allowing, receiving, love, beauty.

Being out in nature is good for the Spirit.  Our spirit wants to be nurtured and lavished in the luxury of Mother Nature.  Let yourself enjoy and experience pleasure.

10 of Pentacles: Family, generations, longevity, prosperity, wealth, security, familiarity.  Happiness, success, everything is how it should be.  Enjoying home life.

Appreciating those that support us, elders, husbands, wives, children, pets.

-Nora

Weekly Guidance 2/20 – 2/26

There’s a slower start to the week of healing and recovering.

Spend some time in a quiet restorative, reflective practice.

Stop trying to figure things out.

Just relax & quiet your mind & the answers will come to you at the exact right, perfect time.

Retreat, but don’t procrastinate.

Hiding yourself under a rock can be nice sometimes, but if you stay there too long it can crush you.

Do what you can to get started & follow through & move forward with your plans.

The retreat is where we regain our energy & this renewal is needed to have the energy to keep going.

Weekly Guidance 2/13 – 2/19

The Page of Wands comes in the beginning of the week to help us overcome obstacles and challenges in regards to our creativity, passion and motivation.

In the middle of the week we have the 3 of Cups which indicates some sort of celebration, friendship and social connection.

We are able to find a like-minded community that makes us feel like we are a part of something.

At the end of the week we have the 2 of Cups, which is more of a one-on-one meeting of the hearts.

There’s a union of complimentary pairs that shows us that we can value each other’s differences.

Because we have the 2 & 3 of Cups this week, it’s likely that the challenges in the beginning of the week will help us find a way to feel more connected to those around us later in the week in a way that is truly authentic.

What makes something Sacred/Holy?

Weekly Guidance 1/16 – 1/22

Picture

We have peace and mental clarity at the beginning of the week with the 4 of Swords.

This would be a good time to simplify and organize your life and your thoughts.

Spend some time in prayer/meditation, and purifying and cleansing your sacred space.  Bring order to chaos.

With the Sun moving into Aquarius in the middle of the week, we strive toward Higher Ideals.

The Ace of Pentacles comes in and advises us to start from where we are.

What can we offer with what we have now, to participate and be in the flow of life?  We all have something that we can offer.

With the Wheel of Fortune at the end of the week, we know that we can always handle whatever comes our way. 

Life will never give you something you’re not prepared for, unless it’s a catalyst for change, or to nudge you in a certain direction.

Open up to opportunities that come your way.

Try new things, and if you feel like you’re not ready, practice until you are.

Sometimes we also need to start before we’re ready, and then we have a remembrance of what we’re doing as we’re doing it.

We’re never done learning and experiencing.

Day after day, moment after moment, there’s still another level of learning, uncovering, discovering, clearing, maturing, purifying, etc.

Whatever it is, we’re always evolving, we’re always changing, and there is never an end, we’re never done.

That’s why on the Wheel, the Tarot ends and beings with a T, because endings and beginnings go hand in hand.

Weekly Reading January 2nd – 8th

Picture

The World kicks of the week with a sense of accomplishment and the feeling of coming full circle.

We are seeing the bigger picture of our lives.

With the World card, we have an opportunity to complete cycles so we don’t have to keep repeating them.

The 5 of Cups shows up, which represents emotions, particularly grief, regret, disappointment, isolation, guilt, apathy, etc.

Whenever a major change is happening, we need to acknowledge the transformation and shedding of the past to fully move forward without emotional baggage weighing us down.

That may mean taking a moment to first know where you’ve been and where you’re going, and finding out if there’s a part of you that feels left behind, forgotten, unsure, uncomfortable, etc.

Thank that part of you for what it’s taught you in the past and for being there for you when you needed it.

Let that part of you know that it’s ok, and it’s safe to come along for the ride in your new plans/new approach to life/ different changes you’re experiencing.

The 3 of Cups is about feeling supported and included by a like-minded community, as opposed to the rejection of the 5 of Cups.

Always being true to yourself may sometimes leave you feeling outcast.

More often than not, being true to yourself will actually inspire those around you and attract other people who are on the same wavelength.

Now, you’re stronger than ever because you’ve survived so much and remained true to yourself, so you’re invincible to shine your light.

-Nora
