Self-Discovery Guidelines to Access and Activate:

Take your time, go slowly, and be patient with yourself to get the best results.

1. Feel your body, take a few moments to settle in. Your body holds deep wisdom. Trust in it. Learn from it. Connect with it.

2. Focus on and bring your awareness to the specific Inner Resource of Appreciation.

Explore the following questions:


Writing down your insights can be very helpful. You might want to grab a journal or a pad of paper now!

In what ways do I appreciate myself? Can I allow myself to really, fully, and genuinely appreciate myself?

As I bring curiosity and kindness to myself, and feel my body, can I think of one thing I genuinely appreciate about myself?

Take your time. Even little things count!

Now think of another thing.

Notice how you feel now and what happens in your body.

And think of one more thing.

Pause and take note and or write down the things you appreciate about yourself.

Remember to notice how appreciation feels in your body.

At this point, you have likely accessed and activated the Inner Resource of Appreciation within you.

Take a few minutes and just feel the presence of appreciation. Feeling is activating.

You can also notice things you genuinely appreciate about others.

When we genuinely appreciate ourselves and others, we are activating these good feelings and positive frequencies within us and creating a very positive field all around us.

How does it feel to take a moment to appreciate someone else?

Notice what it feels like to say to yourself, “I am appreciated.”

As you keep quiet, see what happens thinking, “I am appreciated just as I am.”

3. Continue throughout the day to find and notice more things you appreciate about yourself. Write them down.

They could be little things, big things, unexpected things, new things… you might be surprised!

Remember that writing down your insights can be very helpful. 

Please share your insights so we can be inspired by each other!
