Overcoming Self-Worth issues

Self-worth is such a big topic! And yet, it is a symptom of deeper issues, not a problem in itself. So focusing on low self-worth can sometimes be detrimental.

In this week’s podcast, we’ll look into the symptoms of low self-worth and what you can do if you find yourself having these issues.

Some symptoms of having low self-worth are apparent, while others are hidden. 

Common Symptoms of self-worth issues: 

  • Unable to trust your own opinion
  • Always overthinking
  • Afraid to take challenges, being worried you wouldn’t overcome them
  • Hard on yourself but lenient with others
  • Frequent anxiety and emotional turmoil

Lesser-Known Symptoms

  • Being a workaholic
  • Overachieving or underachieving

Causes of Low Self-Worth

Most of the time, it stems from our childhood. Here’re some negative early experiences that lead to low self-esteem:

  • Frequent punishment
  • Frequent neglect
  • Chronic abuse
  • Harsh parental standards
  • Being bullied/boycotted
  • Being on the receiving end of someone else’s stress or despair
  • Lack of praise, warmth and affection


How Low Self-Worth Affects Every Aspect of Your Life

  • It Makes You Confuse Love with Low Self-Worth
  • It Makes You Have a Lower Hand in the Relationship
  • It Makes Your Employers Feel That You’re Not Talented
  • It Can Lead to Depression

According to psychologist Abraham Maslow, to live a fulfilling life, you should take care of the five levels of basic human needs:

maslows hierarchy of Human needs

I’ve summarised the above items and put them into this list for you:

  • A meaningful life purpose through Shamanism/Spirituality
  • Recognition and respect from others
  • Deep connection with loved ones
  • Sense of security
  • A healthy body
  • Creativity


As you gradually equip yourself with the skills to fulfil the above needs, you’ll forget about self-esteem, and suddenly you’ll find that you just feel proud of yourself when seeing how far you have come!

If you find yourself having low self-esteem, don’t be hopeless. Have faith in yourself that you can regain self-esteem and become a confident and successful person.

Activities and Journeys

  1. Journey with your Guides to the root cause of your Self-Worth issues. Ask to be shown the energetic nature of your problems and connect with them on a deeper level.

Ask to be given a symbol that represents this root cause.

There might be more than one. 

When you return from your Journey, draw the symbols; this will enable you to SEE your issues more clearly and help you and your Guides forge a path ahead.


  1. Next, I invite you to Journey to your Divine Self. Staying connected with the energy of the previous Journey, please take your symbols with you. Either in your mind’s eye, or you can draw them.

Ask your Divine Self what steps you need to take to overcome these root causes. You may also receive healing for these issues.

Then leave your symbols with your Divine Self – you no longer need to carry the burden of those – they will be held safely as you navigate the changes you need to make in your life.
