It’s the holiday shopping season. And we run around looking for “just the right present”.


Well, on beyond bolstering the economy, a meaningful present can express the affection and respect you have for that person, and honor the relationship between you.

At that point, the most “right” present doesn’t depend on price tag or latest trends, or what all of the other kids are getting.

It’s something that speaks of the person themselves, and who they really are. Or speaks of the connection you have between you. Or both.

Just had a curious  idea…

Why not put yourself on your own list? Give yourself  a present to express affection and respect for yourself, and to honor being your own best friend.

So many of us spend so much time looking after others that we starve our own inner spirits.

So give yourself that scented shampoo that makes you feel happy when you use it. Or those art supplies that somehow don’t seem important enough to make the budget (eat ramen and buy paint!) Or the gift of time, to actually do what calls to you. Or permission to try and fail(which is an essential part of trying and succeeding…)

Put yourself on your own list.

And give yourself a bit of what you need to be extraordinary, follow your dreams and be happy….

Happy shopping

In my last post on meeting your blocks to manifestation, we talked about how problems with your self esteem can rise up and create blocks to manifesting what you want. How that Rotten Little Voice inside can tell you that you’re unworthy, that success is scary, that achieving your dream will just make you unhappy, that your success will hurt other people , and other lies that keep you trapped and unable to live your dreams.

We’ve talked about the Rotten Little Voice in other previous posts, but it also can pop up as an obstacle to maifesting your dreams.

So how can you silence that Rotten Little Voice? How can you improve your self -esteem so it will support you in manifesting your dreams?

Different people need different answers. Because of this, I’m offering an all-you-can-eat-buffet of solutions, so you can pick and chose and fill your plate with what serves you best.

Want some ideas? Try to:

  • Use affirmations to reprogram your unconscious beliefs:
  • Use E.F.T. (Emotional Fredom Technique) – a system of tapping on energy meridians combined with affirmations to clear stick negative beliefs:
  • Spend  more time with people who make you feel good about yourself, and less time with the “dream -killers” who put you down:
  • Use subliminal tapes to feed your unconscious positive feedback while you do other thinsg:
  • Use hypnosis or self-hypnosis to  change your habitual thought patterns;
  • Visualize yourself suceeding at your dream -include emotion, the five senses, you in the viualisation:
  • Spend times remembering the times that you have suceeded, big or small;
  • Do things that make you happy – its harder to put yourself down when you’re happy;
  • Feed your spirit positive things – read positive books, listen to positive music, etc. Limit your exposure to things that tell you that living your dreams is hard or will make you unhappy;
  • Do the gratitude dance – be thankful for the good things already in your life and the things that you have already achieved;
  • Look for role models who have succeeded in the area that you want to succeed in. Learn from them. If them, why not you?  (And if there are no role models in your area, why not you as the first?…)

These are just a few of many methods you can use to get your self -esteem up and dancing, and stop blocking yourself.

And make your dreams come true…

See you soon
