When your mind and heart are truly open abundance will flow to you effortlessly and easily.


I am desperate and don’t know what to do. I’m a single shy mother with no self-esteem, age 46 with two teenagers and for more than nine years now I can’t find a job. I live in Holland and from social assistance. I need a job to feed my kids and pay the bills and develop myself and be a good role model for my kids. I’m doing volunteering work at this moment but that is not what I want because I still don’t have an income. I can’t seem to find satisfaction in the volunteering work and in other things I do. I don’t know what I like and what I’m good at. Due to this situation I have become a wreck. I have lost myself completely. I have anxiety, depression, foggy head, forgetful, different psychosomatic complaints, heartburn, headaches and I’m very tired and the list goes on. My doctor says my nervous system is not in balance and I must relax, but I don’t know how. I feel like time is running out of me. I don’t have any friends because people don’t like me and I don’t trust people because of all the bad things they did to me and my kids. I don’t like people, I avoid them if this is possible. I am a sub-assertive person and I always let people take control of me and I let them treat me bad. I seem to attract the bad people. With my family it is every man for himself and God for us all. My problems are too much and I don’t know where to start. Can you help me?


Real self-esteem starts with knowing your true self. For that I recommend a simple meditation practice, such as Primordial Sound Meditation, that gives you experience of your core self. Many people find a simple breathing meditation using the So Hum mantra useful in getting started. Let this practice begin to build an awareness of your self-worth that is independent of your opinions and self-judgments you have formed over the years. Your real value comes from your being, not from your history or actions. Once you make that major shift in your self-perception, you can build a meaningful self-esteem that will allow you to see your unique talents and passions.
