Hello everyone! Happy July! I hope everyone is enjoying their summer so far! This month the Angels are talking about the importance of a healthy feeling of self-worth. This is a topic that I was challenged with personally at my last job as a 9-1-1 Dispatcher in 2020. It can be difficult, and somewhat of a shock, to discover that your sense of worth has actually been coming from something so transitory as a job. As the Angels say in their message, that is how I learned to cope, so that is what I did. I was able to trace it back to my childhood when I felt I had to seek out approval and acceptance by others in order to feel loved and accepted. It has been incredibly freeing to release myself from that cycle. While I still strive to do my job well, it’s more about personal integrity and being able to look at myself in the mirror rather than looking for approval from sources outside of myself. I know now that I’m worthy just by virtue of being a fractal of the Creator having this physical experience. I’ve finally learned to bring the end of the rainbow to me instead of chasing after it.
I hope the Angels message is as helpful to you as it has been for me.
Be true to yourself. So many of you spend so much time trying to fill a role that you think you are supposed to fill; to be the person that others expect you to be. This will forever have you chasing the end of the rainbow. As you move toward your goal, it always seems to be moving further away from you and further into the distance. Just like the end of the rainbow, always elusive.
Self-worth is an issue for so many. Even those who have bravado at times are only covering for their lack of self-worth. With a real and true sense of self-worth the bravado is not necessary. You must be willing to look at your past in order to move forward and make progress and growth in your future. Your sense of self-worth develops in your younger, more formative years. In order to make a change for the better you must be willing to look at the more painful times in your life. And not just this life, but your previous lives as well. Trauma from past lives carries forward to next incarnations so that the energy can be resolved. Energy that is created in the physical must be resolved in the physical.
The family unit plays a large role in the development of self-worth. It can be damaged intentionally or unintentionally by them. Children, as they grow, will find coping mechanisms to fill the void when the best ingredients are absent during this period when they are establishing self-worth. The problem with coping mechanisms is that while they may be useful, and helpful, in the moment, they also allow you to ignore the real issue. You may even believe that you do not have an issue. By using coping mechanisms to deal with a lack of stimulus to create a healthy self-worth you are actually learning to find self-worth from circumstances outside of yourself. This is when you begin chasing the end of the rainbow, because if you are looking outside of yourself for anything at all, then you will always be chasing an elusive goal, a constantly moving finish line.
In order to change this, you must be willing to do the hard work of reviewing your life objectively. For example, did you have a childhood where you had to search out approval and acceptance to feel loved? In this way you may have used school as a way to be liked and accepted; by getting straight A’s or by being the most popular student and thereby finding value in yourself in that way. This trend would have continued into adulthood by searching for approval from your boss and co-workers as a way of finding self-worth and value in yourself.
The lessons involved in undoing the issue of self-worth based on external sources will be hard lessons because they will be a challenge to your Ego Self. You may also be surprised when you recognize and acknowledge you have actually been finding your self-worth from an Ego driven activity. It will seem very real and very important to you that others think well of you; your Ego Self tells you it is, but that is a part of the illusion, and that is what will keep you chasing after an elusive goal. Because when it comes down to it, you have no control over how others perceive you. Nor does it matter how others perceive you in this illusion of the 3rd Density that you are currently existing in. What is real is finding your worth from within yourself. In that way, you are setting the parameters for yourself, and the finish line stops moving. When you take your power back and know your worth comes from deep within you, you are bringing the end of the rainbow to you instead of chasing after it all the time. This is the only way to reach it. Chasing after someone else’s approval in order to find your self-worth and value will only ever lead to disappointment. You must first find your inherent worth from deep within, and in that way the world reflects that back to you. You must first find it within you to find it without.
You have our love and support.
