In the classes I lead we often do spiritual ceremonies. One of the most powerful exercises I do in my classes is to ask people to stand up, arms fully extended outward and to say loudly, over snd over, “I am worthy of all the good and joy sent my way.”
Many, many people weep from the depths of their beings. They never have felt good enough or worthy. It takes all the courage they can call on to say these words out loud. The idea being planted that they may in fact be worthy is priceless.
It is so moving to witness this. How do we get so tough on ourselves, so closed up???
