You are Valuable

There are Seven Lessons That You came to Earth to Learn.  If you miss one of these lessons it keeps being offered back to you over and over again until you learn how to navigate the lesson and feel happy and confident in your own skin.  No one can give you the right answers to these questions. You have to discover the answers for yourself in the moment.  What I can do is give you the questions you need to answer.

The first lesson is about feeling a positive connection to your family and friends.

Take this quick quiz and see how you are doing.

  1. Are you or were you loved and appreciated by your parents?
  2. Do you feel loved by a spouse or significant other?
  3. When there is a job that needs doing do you feel that you can step in an do what needs to be done?
  4. Do you feel full worthy of love?
  5. Do others listen to you and follow your direction?
  6. Do you feel like you are living in a friendly world?
  7. Do you feel a connection to your home here on earth and to source energy beyond?

If you have more than one negative answer it could be that you need to strengthen the  connect to the base of your power.  Here is an affirmation for the first lesson:

I am valuable, lovable and worthy of respect.

In a family that functions well, your parents fall in love with you the minute you are put into their arms.  No matter how many children are added to the family each child is treated as unique and wonderful.  These families are rare. Many parents see their child as a reflection of themselves and so they are more interested in controlling your behavior than developing you as an individual.  Don’t blame them. This is how they were raised.  Paradoxically, it is often your grandparents who see you as a wonderful unique individual.  They have already raised their children and made their mistakes and now they see the choices that they did not take.

What can parents do?

No parent sits up late at night and wonders how they can hurt their child.  Yet parents send their children messages every day that tell them they are not living up to expectations.  These messages stay with children until they create an internal sense of being valuable, loveable, and worthy.

You can notice when your child does something right.  Praise them in the moment and share the story of the positive achievement later on at family celebrations or when talking to your friends.

The LifeLine method of healing teaches us that when we have trouble connecting to people  emotions can become frozen in order to protect yourself from re-experiencing pain or fear. Over time these frozen emotions may call attention to themselves by creating symptoms of disease, that will cause you to change your behavior.  Emotions are energy and they want to flow rather than remain static.  The LifeLine Technique helps you deal with the emotions life’s challenges create in you in a safe, supportive environment.

Tomorrow ‘s blog explores: What happens at school to contribute to feelings of  being valuable, lovable, or worthy.
