Do you feel adored? Dictionary.com describes the word “adore” as the following: “To regard with the utmost esteem, love and respect; honor.” Does your daily life mirror this to you? Is this how you regard yourself? If you don’t, it’s time you did.
When you think about adoring yourself, what feelings come up? Do you have a pit in your stomach that says, “I can’t adore myself. That’s wrong”?
If you have any negative emotions towards the thought of adoring yourself, you are setting yourself up for a life that is hard and where you constantly feel you have to prove yourself.
Whatever you believe you deserve is what your daily life will mirror to you. Because energy attracts like energy, if you believe you can’t adore yourself, then you won’t be adored by the outside world. And that’s when life feels hard. If you don’t allow yourself to be adored, you won’t feel loved and supported.
Do you want to share your gifts with the world but feel no one is paying attention? That’s because you don’t adore what you bring to the table. If you want people to acknowledge your gifts, adore the gifts you’ve been given. Let go of any judgments you might have about them and give thanks to God for your incredible gifts. As you do this and release all guilt for adoring yourself, you’ll begin to see people paying attention.
For most of us, we were told that adoring ourselves was wrong. We were brought up to believe that loving ourselves this way might seem ego-centered. So when we try to share our gifts, or anything else that is important to us, deep down we feel guilty or ashamed. The problem is that, more often than not, we don’t realize this is what’s happening. And the conflict inside of us keeps us in a perpetual state of wondering what’s wrong with us!
If you are trying to share yourself with the world but have a subconscious belief that says it’s wrong to adore yourself, you will hold a vibration of guilt. Guilt breeds punishment energy. So if you’re holding this vibration, this is what you’ll see mirrored back to you. Life will feel hard and you’ll constantly have to prove yourself.
Adoration for yourself says yes to the way you were created. That’s it. It’s not about being ego-centered. Living from your ego is when you continually try to prove yourself.

Think about that statement for a moment. When you don’t adore yourself and continually try to prove yourself so others will adore you, you are coming from ego. And your ego makes life hard.
If you’re ready to stop the madness, here are some healthy healing steps to adore yourself…
Let’s take the example of sharing your gifts. Let’s pretend you have a business and you want it to thrive. Or, if this is a stretch for you and you’d rather do this exercise about something else such as having a better relationship, by all means do.
- Let go of the belief that says it isn’t OK to adore yourself and your gifts you share in your business. Hopefully, after reading this blog, you realize that holding onto that old belief sets you up for failure. A fun way to release the belief is to imagine a big red rose vacuuming out all of this negative energy from every cell of your body. Once the rose is full, send it out to the Universe and blow it up like confetti. Then bring in a beautiful pink light of love and adoration into the crown of your head and allow it to fill up your whole body.
- Write down your gifts and what you bring to your business. Get very detailed. Write bullet point after bullet point.
- HERE’S A REALLY IMPORTANT PART: Go down your bullet points, one by one, and acknowledge your gifts. Pay attention to your feelings and see if you hold any doubt or judgment about each of them. Wherever you feel fear or negativity, ask what the false belief is that’s causing your inner suffering. Visualize another rose sucking out all of that negative energy and blow it up. Fill yourself up with light once again. Do this for every doubt or judgment you have.
- Ask, “What is my truth?” You can ask yourself this question, or you can ask God, the angels, or your inner child. But know that your truth is something that is loving and kind to you.
- Create an affirmation to say to yourself over and over again. Begin with “I am…” Fill in the blank. For instance, if the gifts you have to share have to do with helping people’s lives be easier in some way or more enjoyable, you might write, “I am in service to humanity,” or “I am a master _______, helping people create lives they love.” You’ll have to play with this and find what is your truth. But the more you say these affirmations, the more you’ll reprogram your brain to believing them. And the more you believe them, the more this adoration will be mirrored back to you in your outer world.
Adoring yourself says yes to the way you were created. It sends out a loud energetic vibration to the Universe that says, “I am OK. I am enough. And I am worthy of all the Universe has to offer just for being me.” And in this newfound energy of adoration, life gets easy.
