Amour-propre

Self-esteem – a game-changing recognition… Many people have already told you that you must have more “amour-propre”, in fact, the lack of self-esteem so many times is the cause of failures (just like the opposite: excess). It can be the cause of many renounces and mistakes, and you can’t imagine how many times it has happened to me in the past as well. It all changed after I started to understand what it exactly means to increase self-worth, self-trust and self-confidence. If you trust God you trust yourself and vice-versa. This was a game-changing recognition for me. What does it really mean to you to respect someone? Do you love that person or rather appreciate what they do? You need an intuitive guide?

Understanding Tarot – The Overall Basics

Written By: Dr. Nikki You may have heard a lot about tarot. Maybe you heard that it was invented by the ancient Egyptians, or that it was developed by the Romany as they moved into northern Europe.

Why Is It So Hard to Love Ourselves?

Unless you are a narcissist, you probably have moments about yourself that make you want to vanish off the face of the earth whenever you remember them. The specifics about what makes a person cringe because of themselves is as unique as we all are, but the experience of that embarrassed feeling where you wish you could crawl (or fall) into a hole is truly universal. Why is it for many of us we can never get past the cringe and forgive ourselves to be able to love ourselves? It’s almost like that Mary Lambert’s song, “Secrets.” In her immutably quirky way, the songstress points out the quick answer as to why it is so hard to love ourselves in the chorus: “They tell us from the time we’re young. To hide the things that we don’t like about ourselves, inside ourselves.” Although delivered in the artist’s tongue-in-cheek style, the lyrics are not all the way wrong – she makes a point. From an early age, we are taught to hide our weaknesses and focus on our strengths, …
