Love this!
Such a great reminder for me. I get so caught up in things needing to be this way or this has to be done that way. I know it doesn’t matter and I am liked and loved for who I am not how it’s done. This is a great reminder of that! 💙
Healing Perfectionism
This was exactly what I needed, right here, right now. When I was telling myself that I am enough just as I am, I felt something inside of me loosen and relax. The anxiety and tightness that have become uncomfortable companions eased and I could almost touch upon my lighter, gentler self ~ my truest self. The self that is enough exactly as I am, right here, right now. Thank You so much for this reminder and lovely meditation! 🙏🏻✨
Perfectionist Poster Child!
Perfectionism has been my biggest enemy since I started back at college last Fall. I will be saving this meditation to use throughout this semester for sure! I need to remember that my “perfectionism is not conditional!”
Let it go!
I needed these words this morning-the Universe knew exactly what to place in front of me today. My shoulders softened saying the words: I am enough, just as I am. My worthiness is not conditional.
That I am enough. My worth is not determined by others, but through my own beliefs, systems and values. I can continue to better myself with practicing what is helpful and healthy for me. This does not mean that I always know what is best for myself. I must continue to be honest in order to be healthy. Each day is an opportunity to lay the groundwork for filling my life with love, laughter and peace. Something that has stuck with me over the last couple months is reading this “if peace is a priority in your life, it is absolutely okay to avoid certain people, places and situations that jeopardize your goal”. It’s okay to let go. It’s okay to live. It’s okay to care. It’s okay to laugh. It’s okay to cry. It’s okay to accept things that are not in my control. It’s okay to not know. It’s okay to know. All the discomfort of uncertainty is okay too. Each day is a choice. I choose to remain positive, focused and committed.
Nails It!
Cassandra, one of my favorite practitioners, nailed it again!!! This 3 minute meditation is simple and powerful, as she gets right to the heart of the matter. This will definitely be a meditation that I listen to again and again. 💫🙏♥️🙏💫
What I learned...
I could have/should have done a better job paying attention to Cassandra's words! I wasted this lesson by not performing it well or correctly! What can I say? I AM my own worst critic! ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
slow down and let the life flow. Let the stress behind and take one thing at a time.
I am enough
As a high achiever, I sometimes mistake what I achieve for my worth as a person but my worth is not conditional. This meditation reminded me of that.
Perfectionism Chains
From a very young age, I was taught that if I do well, I will get loving attention. This teaching instilled in me some perfectionism tendencies. I must be an over achiever in everything I do. I must get the best grades. I must work the hardest. While this teaching was good in that I always tried my very best in everything I did, it also lead me down a long and windy road of self doubt and indecisiveness. With my hand over my heart, I began to say Cassandra’s words. Saying these words over and over again, I am beginning to unlock these perfectionism chains that are buried deep within my subconscious mind. As I continue along my journey of becoming my best self, I will read these words each and every day on so I may finally be free of these perfectionism chains once and for all. Namaste 🙏🏻❤️☮️
This is something I need
I learned that I need to say this to myself much more often. And on the days it is hard to remember this I can just repeat it more
Healinf Perfectionism Affirmation
Feel your breathing, be in the present moment, put one hand on your chest and feel it coming up and down with your breath and repeat the affirmations: I am enough just as I am I am enough just as I am I am enough just as I am My worthiness isn’t conditional My worthiness isn’t conditional My worthiness isn’t conditional
Healing Perfectionism
I am enough just am I am. My worthiness is not conditional. Focusing my energy on my heart and chest.
I am enough...
I loved the little mantra’s “I am enough, just as I am” and “my worthiness is not conditional”. When we place too many standards upon ourselves we tend to forget that we’re human and are enough as who we are. Saying those reminders to start the day is helpful when living in a world where the societal focus is what based upon what we look like.
I am ok
I am ok just as I ami need not be perfect to be peaceful with my life

I Am worthy, just as I Am I Am enough, just as I Am! I Am, just as I Am I Am 🍀
Short but sweet
It’s hard to believe that such a short, sweet meditation can make such a profound impact. I teared up when I realized that I am enough just as I am...if only for those few minutes. Thank you.
While doing this meditation I realized that I’m not sure I’ve ever felt that my worthiness is unconditional. I’ve always felt that I have to have the approval of others, that they could take that away if I don’t measure up. It comes from my childhood and my relationship with my parents. It’s something I’ll have to work on, but this helped me see, today, that I do often see myself terrified I am only worthy, loved, based on the views of others.
We am each are enough
Such an important message to soak in and become a part of our daily perspective. Namaste
I am good enough. I don't need to be perfect for love. I can be loved as is.
Trying hard
Don’t want to start working without having done something for myself. Will first go for a walk.
I am enough
My entire life has been riddled with perfectionism, it was what I raised in valuing To tell myself in the morning, when I first wake up that I AM ENOUGH and that my worthiness is NOT CONDITIONAL was very empowering. 💪🏼
Perfectionism can be the enemy on progress. I learned that taking a step, even a small one gets you closer to the goal while trying to be or do something perfectly prevents us from starting at all.
Acceptance of my worthiness
When I first placed my hand on my heart, and then my other hand on top of that one, I felt a physical connection to myself in a new way…my arms were now forming a circle leading from my torso back to my heart…a closing of the loop…This connection is a new physical way of being with myself that feels quite comforting. When I began to repeat, “I am enough just as I am,” and, “My worthiness is not conditional,” I could feel the falter in my internal voice—because I don’t yet believe it to be true for myself—so I repeated with more conviction as we continued—and I felt more open to hearing myself speak to myself that way. After we concluded, I repeated each phrase aloud, spontaneously adding, “It’s true,” after each. I feel more comfortable with receiving this message now and know that with practice I will transform this from a wish to a belief—and with time, will live it as my new reality. Namaste 🙏❤️
