SELF-ESTEEM | SELF-WORTH
'I love myself, and I am worthy of love and respect.'
many things can happen throughout our lives that affect our self-worth. we may internalise messages we hear in our childhood and carry them with us throughout our lives, we may behave in ways that aren't consistent with our integrity, or we may have failed relationships that make us feel unworthy of love. self-esteem is a solar plexus chakra issue, and without it, it is difficult to find joy and peace in our lives.
citrine - this golden stone is the embodiment of the colour of the solar plexus chakra. it is a powerful stone that helps promote feelings of self-esteem and self-worth, so it's an excellent crystal if you are struggling with self-esteem. to use citrine for self-esteem, set it on your solar plexus chakra as you do the meditation. you could also carry it with you and hold it whenever you feel your self-esteem start to flag. as you hold the citrine in your receiving hand, repeat the mantra, 10 times.
hematite - a root chakra stone, but it is also a strong build-up of self-worth. carry or wear it, cleansing it every few days.
MEDITATION; because self-esteem is so closely tied to the solar plexus chakra, a meditation focusing on opening this chakra can help you build your self-esteem. lie on your back with your hands place gently on your solar plexus chakra. breathe normally. visualise golden light coming from the universe, into your hands, and into your chakra. picture the chakra as a growing, swirling golden-yellow light and allow its energy to flow throughout your body. as you do this, repeat the mantra. do this for at least 10 minutes, ideally for several days in a row.
