Value

What is value?

  • In art… value is the lightness and darkness of a color.  Its the different shades of gray. Its a scale used to determine how much light is being reflected off a surface.
  • In finance… value is an estimate of the monetary worth of (something). Its the numerical amount denoted by an algebraic term; a magnitude, quantity, or number. Its the material or monetary worth of something. Its the worth of something compared to the price paid or asked for it.
  • In relationships… value is to consider (someone or something) to be important or beneficial; have a high opinion of. Its a person’s principles or standards of behavior; one’s judgment of what is important in life. Its the regard that something is held to deserve; the importance, worth, or usefulness of something.

How do we reconcile our own value when the word value means at least 3 different things! I suppose the underlying current in the definition is a perspective and how we compare that perspective to an idea, whether an idea we create or one that is created by those around us. 

The place to start would be deciding what perspective we hold on the idea of our self. Is our idea of self… Is it determined solely by the ideas those around us have of us? What we should be, how we should act… or does our value of our self come from a true awareness of self and a true appreciation for self.

As value is about importance… knowing whats most important to us, and then paying attention to where we stand on its importance. Realizing how our lives reflect this importance, or do not reflect the importance. If we feel like our actions are not reflection what we value and see as important then we should take inventory of those things and perhaps think of things that are important to us.

I feel like my role is often a facilitator… I bring people together, I use action to create, I get things going… however once my role is completed and the people are brought together I’m not sure what to do next.

Perhaps that’s where the friction comes from… My wanting to be involved in the action taking place after my job as facilitator has been completed. The attachment to the outcome and being apart of the outcome creates friction… because my facilitating doesn’t necessarily mean that I am meant to participate in the outcome, other than bringing the elements together.

Being a facilitator is an interesting job… because we help others create beautiful things… in a way it feels like those beautiful things exist and we had some kind of hand in their creation. Even though it is not technically our creation, there is still a sense of pride from it… I notice I have to keep my perspective in check about how I wish to attach or do attach to outcomes of events that I have facilitated. I also realize that when the facilitating is successful, I start to feel like I’m not needed anymore… and so then I do not feel useful or necessary.

Should I only facilitate things that I will… is that a fair use of a gift? I don’t believe that… i believe in co-creating… that is why I think of it in terms of a group… people I can trust and rely on to have my back with their gifts as I have their back with mine.

For today I ask you, where in your life do you feel friction from a role you play? Perhaps your role as mother, teacher, creator, daughter, brother… is there a role you play that has caused you friction lately? I challenge you to be a c.e.e.q.e.r. and question where that friction is coming from?

When we know our value we are truly standing in our power… nothing can throw us from our center. We must know ourselves in order to wield our will.

Monday Mantra:
I see value, in every shade of self… I AM divinely created, unique and important.  I am a vital part of existence in every capacity. <3

Speaking Freely…

On every holiday people all over send text messages, emails, facebook posts, and tweets saying “Happy (Fill in the Blank) Day!”  This holiday happens to be Independance day, the fourth of July. A day that has represented freedom from the signing of a document by people who wanted to succeed from Europe.

As I go to send a text, I stop and analyze the actual words I’m about to send…I then realize … I have to assign them a meaning. In order to make sense of any statement the words need meaning. I found that the words of this holiday have meanings that have been based off of what I’ve been taught and have believed for so long to be true… even though… I never experienced this day as a battle or a day for rejoicing because of personal freedoms gained, or signed a document stating my freedom from a tyrant…not yet at least. I’ve always been this free, since I can remember…I have learned and experienced on certain levels that there are people who have less freedoms.

But if we bring the metaphysical aspect into account… as an energetic being… I am freedom, just as I am and we are all things.  Now, I began to think about how I can personalize this energetically charged day.  (It is energetically charged by the thoughts of millions of people around the world… for as long as its been told and believed as truth)… so that I can utilize this energy for the creation and manifestation of my goals and desires, to create my reality with my intent.

By using their term I’m just giving away the energy, so I’ve found the key is in the words. But not only the words, its also about how a person uses them. Not being afraid to use your own creations as affirmation of your reality.

So Create new definitions for words and use them to vibrate the specific energy you desire into your existence…. After all everything is a vibration. And Words are “spell”ed …. There’s energy in words, think about what its like when monks chant. When words get used over and over they vibrate stronger…

I digress, what I’m saying is… Saying the typical happy “whatever” day… Is giving our energy and power of creation away to something we don’t even know to be true for us completely on all levels, we can not say its 100% tangible truth, we can only believe in it.

So try thinking about how the theme of any holiday resonates with your reality and life experiences right now… And then reassess the holidays value to you and perhaps you’ll see it in a new perspective, giving yourself and your family more energy for the things you desire and deserve in life.

For me, I’ve experimented with this process by saying Happy Energy Manifestation day for b-day because that means more to me… And now I will start using Happy Free day for Happy Independance day, using the theme of independence to truly be grateful and aware of all that I am.

Namaste
