My Poor Chicago...I'm sending you my love.  In light of these global climatic shifts which are truly psycho-spiritual, not just weather related, I'm including a free gift with this newsletter for everyone. No matter where you are or what storms both outer and inner are in your life, I hope a free download of a seminar I gave will offer some measure of solace!

Cultivating Esteem from your Soul

Each of us has a unique Fate and Destiny to live in this world as part of the Soul contract we've entered into with Life. In the game of life, Fate acts as the hand of cards we've been dealt and Destiny represents how we play that hand. After years of reading the Soul Contracts of folks as an intuitive I've come to see that nothing influences the way we play that hand more than self-esteem.

The development of both self-esteem and the ego are directly linked and begin at the moment we are born. As we mature an esteem-template begins to form, based on how our parents mirror us, how safe we felt as children, the role we played in our family, as well as our place in the greater society and culture around us. This imprinted sense of self-value is the fuel that initially propels our life's purpose.

Yet, sooner or later many of us realize that fuel is no longer enough to launch us toward our highest potential. As a result, we often feel stuck in relationships, jobs and life situations stemming from a measure of self-worth that comes from and an old way of getting esteem to survive in life.

Meanwhile, our Soul continues to call us to new empowerment. It's then we realize the traditional self-help and psychological models of esteem development that often focus on therapeutic mirroring, achieving small realizable goals and self-affirmations to build esteem are no longer adequate. To achieve the fullest expression of our gifts in this life, we need a new level of esteem; we need esteem from the Soul. But how do we develop that?

The answer to that question is complex and has intrigued me for some time now. I first wrote about the idea of Soul-Esteem in Transforming Fate into Destiny. Now five years later I'd have to say that one of the major factors I look at with each client is the kind of esteem-template they first developed to survive and feel safe in their family/culture. Furthermore, how that's serving them?
  
Let's face it, our first attempts at getting esteemed weren't based on our need to 'self-express' or 'self-actualize' our fullest potential. We were reading our environment and parents so we could discern what we had to do to be fed, clothed, and maybe get a hug at the end of the day! Our esteem was about ego based survival, not soul directed service.

The formation of this primary way we first got esteem (that saved our ass way back then!) then motivates the 'default' intention and drive for much of what we do in life. Yet sooner or later, it wears out because via our Soul Contracts we signed up for something more.
  
We realize this when we begin to see that old way of getting esteem has placed us in states of servitude with others and perhaps our jobs. We see the ways we compulsively do everything for everyone in the hopes we'll still feel needed - as feeling needed and rescuing was the only way we got esteemed. Sound like you? Take a moment and think about the ways you first learned to get esteem from your parents so that you could feel safe and survive. Now take a look at your culture. 

Next take a moment and ask your Soul whether that old way of getting esteem serves the living of your highest potential at this point in your life. What would it be like to source your Soul for esteem? How would you even begin to do that? What would your life look like if you did? What kind of intimacy would you have in your relationships with others? Who would even still be in your life if you gave up being 'needed' or 'used' as your source of validation? Powerful questions, eh?

I have found that these questions are in fact the real keys to living the perfume version of your Destiny. After all, aren't you tired of Eau de Toilette?? Ha! That said, I'd like to give all of you a free download of a seminar I gave for Hay House in 2009 (soon to be followed by another on the same subject in a few months).
We'll call this 'Esteem from Your Soul' Part I. Additionally I have organized an intensive weekend to go into more depth on this subject at Kripalu this coming April 7th-10th titled Cultivating Esteem from the Soul: Moving Past Self-Sabotage to Claim Your Destiny. For more information on that read below. I've also included a list of my upcoming radio shows this month and into March. Be sure to tune in if a radio show subject speaks to you!

I do hope you'll take the time to download and listen to this free hour and a half seminar. Feel free to share it with others you think will find it of benefit. It is my gift to you with the hope that it helps you truly live a life of soulful value in this world, enjoy!  I'll be in touch very soon.



Namaste,
