It’s no fun to suffer from low self esteem, it can be crippling. The implications on your experience of life can be profound, and I don’t mean in a good way. If you are living with a low self esteem, now is the time to change your beliefs, because frankly, you are too good to be living like this. Esteem means ‘respect, and admiration’ according to the dictionary. So if you are experiencing a low self esteem, you are lacking in respect and admiration for yourself. So what we need to do is help you to respect and admire yourself, so that you can create a new reality for you, that is as magical as the act of creation, and as magical as you. Now is the time to give yourself permission to work on your self respect, and self admiration. To help you, here are a few spells, rituals and and other magical treats just for you. Please use them, you’re worth it! Crystals For Low Self Esteem Rose Quartz Amethyst Rhodonite Citrine Self Esteem Meditation Find a comfortable position, make sure that you are warm and will not be disturbed. If you can meditate outside comfortably, go ahead. Breathe slowly, and deeply for a few minutes, enjoying the sensation of your breath moving in and out of your body. Until you start to drift into your own world. As you settle into your comfortable space, you notice a walled garden just in the distance. It’s a beautiful clear day, and the air is warm and loving. As you walk closer down to the walled garden, you notice that the entrance is locked, and the gate has your name etched into the wood. As you notice this, you realise that this is your sacred garden, a place where only you can go. You notice the key is your pocket and try it in the lock, as you open the gate, the scene is breathtaking, it’s everything that you dream of, it’s beautiful, abundant, and alive. You close the gate behind you, making sure it’s locked and that the key is safe in your possession, and you start to walk down the steps that are just beyond the gate. It’s dark and shady here, so you have to pay attention to count each step as you walk so that you are focused. But as you step down, into the beautiful garden you notice the musty smells and the crunch of nature beneath your feet. You start to explore the garden, and can’t believe that you have access to such a haven, it’s beautiful. But there are some dark, dank area’s there too, which you decide to clear out, after all this is your place to take care of. As you clear up some of the dark area’s, you notice that they reflect an aspect of you, a darkness that you need to clear up inside of yourself. You clear up the patch in the garden and then find a beautiful spot, where there is a bench, and you decide to go sit on the bench, which, as you get closer you realise that it’s a healing bench, and as soon as you sit on it, as if by magic, a healing light surrounds you, and enters into your energy clearing up this patch of darkness inside of you. You stay there for as long as you need to, knowing that you are safe and protected. When you have finished the healing session, the light fades and any lessons or wisdom that you needed to be aware of is revealed to you. Afterwards you walk around your garden, enjoying the beauty, and feeling lighter before heading back up the steps, toward the gate. As you leave, you turn back once more and take in the beauty, realising that if you can see this beauty outside, then you have it inside of you too. You return now to your body and reflect on the knowledge and lessons that you have learned. You are aware of what you have brought into being, and of what you need to finalise and complete now so that you can start to plan for the future. When you are ready slowly open your eyes. Be present with your surroundings as you gradually return to your daily life.
