Self-Discovery Guidelines to Access and Activate:

Writing down your insights is very helpful. 

Before you start, we encourage you to keep a journal of your explorations, so grab a journal, pad of paper or print the worksheet below.

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. Bring your awareness to the specific Inner Resource of Dignity, as you slow down, and take a few deep breaths.

3. Allow the word Dignity to just drop into your field of being and notice what you experience with curiosity and kindness to yourself. 

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

Explore the following questions with curiosity and kindness to yourself:

What does dignity mean to me? 

Can I feel the deep, strong presence of dignity within me?

Can I find and honor the essence of dignity within myself?

Take several deep breaths and be aware of your body. Allow your body to relax a bit more each time you exhale. As you keep breathing and relaxing, bring the word dignity into your awareness, and notice what happens within you.

What does dignity feel like to you?

My dignity is inviolable and sacred. My dignity cannot be canceled, denied, or negated.

As you access the presence of dignity within, what emotional waves come up, if any?

Take note and/or write in your journal all the things you are feeling in your physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual bodies. Give yourself some time to fully explore dignity for yourself and what it means to you.

Dignity is an inherent human birthright and a fundamental aspect of ourselves.

Discover for yourself what exploring dignity feels like within you. You might find great strength, courage, determination, and self-respect, among other things.

Your exploration into accessing and activating dignity within you can be a rewarding journey, one that will continue to give and give. Keep the presence of dignity within you and see what happens throughout your day.

We invite you to continue this journey of self-discovery. It is not a once-and-done experience. Please revisit this exploration into Dignity and discover how it continues to deepen and enhance the quality of your life.

Take 5 Deep Breaths

1. Feel your body.

2. Relax your shoulders.

3. Choose a word that makes you feel peaceful, such as om, peace, or love.

4. Inhale slowly while mentally saying the word you chose. Pause before starting the exhalation.

5. Exhale slowly while mentally saying 1 with the first breath. Exhale saying 2 with the second breath, up to 5 or more.

Feel Your Body

Relax your body, and just be aware of how your body feels. Without changing anything, notice what you are feeling, and where you are feeling things in your body.  If your body wants to adjust a little, let it. Be curious how it feels as your body relaxes. (Resist any temptation to analyze or think.)
