We often hear the phrase "you are worthy," but how often do we pause to truly digest what it means? How often do we honestly believe it? Worthiness isn’t just a feel-good tagline; it's the foundational belief that guides how we treat ourselves and what we allow into our lives. I've been contemplating this deeply, recognizing how my own self-limiting beliefs have sometimes held me back from experiencing a healthy body, a tranquil spirit, and true abundance.

Understanding Worthiness

Worthiness is about more than feeling deserving. It's about acknowledging our inherent value as human beings. We are worthy of love, health, peace, and prosperity, simply because we exist. This isn't contingent on our achievements, our social status, or any other external factor. It's a truth that lies at the core of our being.

The Impact of Self-Limiting Beliefs

I'm in the middle of reaching Jamie Kern Lima's book, "WORTHY" a book on how to believe you are enough and transform you life, and she says in the book, "In life, you don't soar to your hopes and dreams, you stay stuck at the level of your self-worth. You don't rise to what you believe is possible, you fall to what you believe you're worthy of." This statement has resonated with me deeply. It's made me stop and think about my own internal self-limiting belief systems. Where in my life, hides the belief that I am not worthy?

My Journey with Worthiness

As someone who has navigated significant health challenges and built a business rooted in the power of self-care, I've had to confront my own beliefs about worthiness. Each step, from developing Sanara in my kitchen to facing a breast cancer diagnosis, required me to assert my worthiness—not just to survive, but to thrive.

Creating Sanara was about crafting a tangible expression of self-worth through mind and body care rituals. It was a way to say to myself and to the world, "We are all worthy of feeling connected, healed, and whole."

But even still I find myself tackling the unworthiness belief system and if I'm being honest with myself, will be lifelong journey. 

How to Cultivate a Sense of Worthiness

1. Acknowledge Your Self-Limiting Beliefs: Start by identifying and acknowledging the beliefs that limit you. Write them down and confront them. Understanding is the first step to overcoming.

2. Affirm Your Worth Daily: Use affirmations that reinforce your worth. Say them out loud, write them down, or make them a part of your daily meditation. Affirmations like "I am worthy of a healthy body, I am worthy of a tranquil spirit, I am worthy of abundance" are powerful tools.

3. Incorporate Rituals of Self-Care: Let every act of self-care be an affirmation of your worth. Whether it's using a Sanara Chilean Rosehip Seed Body Oil or taking a moment for deep, mindful breathing, make self-care a priority.

4. Surround Yourself with Support: Build a community that uplifts and affirms your worth. Let the energy of collective belief bolster your own.

Worthiness is not a destination; it's a continuous journey. Each day offers a new opportunity to live from a place of worthiness. Let us choose to rise to what we believe is possible, not fall to what we believe we’re worthy of.
