I have already written a whole section on Self-Esteem but on this page, I wanted to talk about the topic and how it relates to Spirituality. I thought it important to emphasise how Spirituality is as much pragmatic and practical as it is esoterical. It is the application of both approaches that will truly bring about the desired outcome.When we talk about self-esteem, we refer to both types. High-self esteem and low self-esteem.
This is the good self-esteem which is healthy and a necessary part of your well-being. Having high self-esteem is what gives you confidence and is the cornerstone from which you live a happy and emotionally balanced life. You have a zest for life and like the skin you’re in!
People with high self-esteem are usually amongst the successful, leaders and high achievers. They are very rarely in the background of a crowd and are by no means, the shrinking violet of the group either.
You know you are in the presence of those with high self-esteem because they are probably talking to you from behind a rostrum as they give an eloquent speech or sitting comfortably in the Director’s chair at the office. Even those who have not attained this level of achievement are likely to go unnoticed as their air of charm and panache definitely has a noticeable presence.
You cannot help but notice how well-presented they are and their je ne sais quoi is almost like second nature to those well endowed with a healthy dose of high self-esteem. You can’t but love their positive energy and forward thinking approach to life.
High self-esteem is definitely healthy and you are truly in a good place!
It plagues your life with pain and despair. You know you are in the strangle-hold of low self-esteem when your entire world view is dark.
Your seat in the world is from a place of negativity, limitation and lack. A sense of anguish is likely to be a permanent feature of your life and you live in the shadow of loneliness and isolation. There is very little you look forward to and most days feel like the day before.
You are pre-occupied with self-doubt and the skin you’re in has likely not seen a ray of sunshine for a very long time. It remains securely hidden from sight under layers and layers of clothing, hiding yourself away.You are unlikely to be in the best of physical health and everything you do, feels like a chore, burden or inconvenience.
People with low self-esteem are usually amongst the low achiever’s and will very easily get lost in the crowd, intentionally! They have a poor view of themselves and lack the energy to move their life forward. They have little or no control of the facets of their life and are slaves to the mental chatter about what other people think about them. They are in the constant grip of self-criticism which squashes any glimmer of confidence and self-worth.
Low self-esteem is definitely unhealthy and you are sadly in a bad place!
Which one fits you?
Both descriptions of self-esteem may seem extreme and you may only identify yourself with some but not necessarily all of the expressions of high and low self-esteem. You can make your own assessment as to the level and degree of your own self-esteem.
As we continue, let’s look at low-self-esteem,
And how it pertains to Spirituality.
Spirituality is a journey that takes you the very core of your being where you find communion with God. It is the place deep within that is abound with the pure, complete, unlimited and unconditional Love of the Divine.
How then is it possible to live in the grips of low-self-esteem when you operate from that deep place of Love? For in celebration of God, you celebrate yourself. The two are intrinsically linked, eternally bound and divinely connected.
You are the beautiful and gracious embodiment of God through which He expresses life.
Unless and until you emanate beauty in every aspect of your life, you compromise and confine the God you serve.
You are created in the image of God and although your power is not of the same magnitude, you certainly share His properties and qualities.
It means you are suppose to shine. You are suppose to stand out in the crowd and rejoice. Your laughter should echo to the far reaches of the planet and beyond.
Your inner glow was created to razzle and dazzle and capture the hearts of many. That twinkle in your eyes? Is the same twinkle in the stars.
Low-self-esteem is a violation of your Spiritual oath. It attempts to limit and negate you but when you are Spiritually centred, you break free your limitations and rightly assign yourself a special place in this world, where only you belong!
Why would you not climb to the mountain top, when you know there sits the destiny of your goals, your dreams, your hopes and aspirations.
Your presence is the quintessential nature of the earth, captured on the wings of an eagle and reverberated through the ripples of the ocean waves. Your elegance dances to the Universal beat in a rich, majestic flow.
You are the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end, the songbird and the song. You are the crest of the moon and the morning mist, your essence is embedded in all.
How else could you possibly live your life except LARGE and IN CHARGE!
You are suppose to be strong, you have the right to be great. You should expect the best and assume abundance in all areas of your life.
There is simply no other way for you to Be!
You are indeed a precious pearl.
In closing I am reminded of the poem by Marianne Williamson which captures the essence of these words perfectly and I’d love to share it with you:
“… Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine as children do. We are born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”
from the book ‘A Return To Love’ (1992)
