This self esteem exercise will help you get more in touch with your authentic Self, and reconnect with what's most important to you in life. Connecting with your Higher Self can also help you become more inspired, and build personal power.
What is the Higher Self?...
You could say that your Higher Self is the fully actualized you from the future, or a higher Spiritual plane.
Different traditions have called this higher aspect by many different titles. It has been known as the "Holy Guardian Angel", and the "Christ within", for example. It's you evolved -- the highest expression of your Soul.
Your Higher Self is your blueprint, or guide, so to speak.
Connecting with this guide helps build self esteem, and confidence as you begin to see more possibilities, and Self-potential.
You are. Your Higher Self is.
Life can be perceived as a sequence of learning events leading to the Higher Self. Think of it this way...
...Just as you can look back and see who you were before, you can also look ahead to who you will become -- if you choose it. In some ways, you are a higher Self to the person you once were..
Doing this self esteem exercise will teach you how to listen to what some have called the "still, small voice within."
Until we are fully tuned in, the Higher Self communicates to us in many subtle ways. One of these is through our intuition. Another is through our recurrent deep desires and urges.
It is the Higher Self who causes us to dream of a better life, and of all of the wonderful things we'd like to experience.
You align most with your Higher Self when you follow your dreams, your heart, your bliss. Boredom, frustration, sadness, depression, and feeling unfulfilled are a good indication that you are out of alignment.
Begin this self esteem exercise with a pen and a piece of paper.Then, tune into those feelings, and deep desires. Imagine how your life could be different. Think of the things you have always wanted to have, do or be, that you have suppressed with self-limiting beliefs -- the things that seem to keep coming back as if to haunt you...
...That desire to mountain bike up the Pacific Coast Trail. The dream to have a house on the beach, to become a writer, to see the pyramids, and learn to speak Spanish. Whatever they are...
...Write them down.
Did you know that these are the things your Higher Self has planned for you? And that they are possible? Life is a harmony. You have specific desires and dreams because that is who you are, and life has prepared a way for you to be that.
Don't forget your dreams. Keep tuning in to them. Staying connected to your dreams, keeps you connected to your Higher Self.

"When one feels pulled to do a particular thing, when one has passion for a certain life path, karma is always involved. In such an instance, when the goal is worthy and makes one happy, one should continue on that same life path - continue down the path that makes you feel fulfilled."~Kwan Yin
