The Key to Unlocking Your Energy Blueprint of Self-Worth Part One
“It shames the average man to be valued below his own estimate of his worth.”
Mark Twain – A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s Court
The root of many modern emotional problems arises from a less than magnificent opinion of yourself – Low Self-Esteem. Low Self Esteem resides as a core issue for self-destructive habits that run the gamut from shyness, relationship issues, overeating, and drug abuse.
To overcome low self-esteem, you may work with various methods to bolster the estimate of your worth. Affirmations and general positive self-talk all contribute to building a positive self-image. This work may or may not hold when you encounter a blunt comment or an incident that you perceive is 1) directed towards you and 2) values you below the estimate of your own worth. Shame emerges, with its emotional baggage to lower your opinion of self down a few notches.
So, how do you arrest this tendency and armor yourself against these assaults that impugn your value? You can affirm the brilliance your self worth in the privacy of your own domain. What can you do to lock this work, to “diamond coat” your self-esteem?
Everything in the Universe is energy – the frequency of the vibratory rate determines the “form” the energy assumes. You are “coalesced” energy, appearing in the form of a human body that creates thoughts and feelings. The 7 major Chakras are the energetic “blueprint” for your body. Essentially, you are spiritualized matter, prisms for the divine living light.
Since you are “energy manifest,” it makes sense to work with your energetic blueprint to 1) promote a healthy, dynamic image of yourself; 2) provide a method to maintain this healthy sense of self; and 3) be centered in your own personal power.
When working with the human energy system, the Chakras, and aura, I have found that a healthy self-esteem results from a process that empowers you to have a “feel good” opinion of yourself. Hypnosis is a key to this practice, as it promotes the physiological slowing down of the brainwaves to the alpha, theta, or delta frequencies. Any affirmations or positive self-talk made in this state of mind becomes more effective in re-wiring your neurology to accept the “new” self-image.
Understanding your energetic blueprint is another key component to the journey of embracing one’s self-worth. The point of power for self-esteem is the Solar Plexus Chakra. This 3rd Chakra embodies the archetype of who you are in the universe – your uniqueness as well as your interconnectedness. This Chakra, which influences the area on your body between the navel and solar plexus, was the attachment point to your birth mother via the umbilical chord. Contained within the 3rd Chakra energy are the dynamics of your relationship with self, your identity and power, your personal value and thoughts, confidence, and your image of self. Shame suppresses this Chakra’s ability to function in a balanced and supportive manner.
The Solar Plexus Chakra is a mental Chakra and its healthy functioning is directly linked to your emotional life. Your mind, with your thoughts, regulates your emotional life. How you think of your emotions frames them in a way that defines your reality and experiences. The mind, then, is really the originator of your emotions. Yet, sometimes, it takes an emotional experience to change a thought and imprint it.
Often, you look outside of yourself for validation of “self.” You might look to other relationships – family, friends, and lovers – to affirm your “right to be here.” Through an emotional imprint, you might perceive that these relationships serve as your “correctness” compass. The Sacral Chakra, or 2nd Chakra, expresses this energy of how you relate to others on an emotional level. As well, the energetic blueprint of this 2nd Chakra contains the dynamics of your creativity, sexuality, and the giving and receiving of spiritual, mental, and physical pleasure.
Energetically, a lack of self-esteem can occur when the “wires” are crossed between the Solar Plexus Chakra and the Sacral Chakra. In this scenario, you do not differentiate between your relationships with others vs. your relationship with self. You look to others to validate self, and, in the process, give away your personal power. This leads to an unhealthy relationship with “self” and an eroded self-worth. When this energetic condition occurs behaviors manifest that range from self-destructive conduct to wanting to over-control all aspects of your life, including the actions of others.
I’ve simplified this, as there can be other dynamics involved as well. So, how can you tap into your innate energy blueprint to access your inner and universal wisdom? In Part Two, I offer a few techniques that I’ve used, which have had a demonstrable effect on the human energy field and the Chakras.
