Valuing...
Great little lesson on how we all have value and should not sell ourselves short. But while crumpling and stomping on the bill did not reduce its value, time can change the value of it. If left alone the buying value of the bill would decrease over time. If invested properly it would actually increase in value over time. But we are not statically made one time like the money. We are dynamic and are changing all the time. The question becomes are we investing the time & energy to increasing ourselves & our value or just coasting and allowing our value to decrease and diminish. Yes, we all have value, and it’s our Choice as to how much that value is! ❤️☮️🍀

Our Value Worth
I felt inspired with this lesson because it took me to a higher level of twenty dollars bills; it reminded me of a precious stone. A stone that has potential energy that increases in value when a very specific mineral is combined together. Rubies crystals are formed as the matter mixture is cooling. The length of time it cool is not a decrease but and increase; it determines the clarity and size of the crystal as well as how many rubies are formed. When the mixture is allowed to cool over a period of time larger rubies are formed and that's what makes a precious Ruby Stones valuable in worth all the time; if the mixture cool to quickly it can prevent the formation of rubies and this can cause an decrease in value. For me to invest in the time and energy in oneself is value as a Ruby Worth of many stones!

Wonderful object lesson
I have always known this, but it was nice to listen to an affirmation of my own belief in myself. I do have value! No matter what has happened to me in the last few years, I know my talents and skills remain valuable! To reaffirm this, I have opted to enroll in our local community college to refresh my knowledge of the computers and software I use in my design career! This should make me even more valuable to potential.clients and.employers! I'm also working on the idea of creating some new art, in partnership with my very creative and talented wife and eldest daughter...we already have space available to display our work at our local art gallery, via my friendships with the artists of the co-op which operates it! We've created our first work already, given as a gift to our family friend who directed all three of my children in a local production of Disney’s The Little Mermaid, The Broadway Musical! I look forward to making new pieces soon!

Not one thing
It is a good reminder that you’re not the things that happened to you and you’re not just this one mistake or this one flaw or this one thing people don’t like. You’re more than just that dirt- definitely something to keep in mind!

It was encouraging to feel that despite all that happens, we’re still here striving to do our best
I can get up, dust myself off, and keep going. I learned that our sense of self and our strength is not diminished by what happens to us.

I had made bad decisions in my life but this story had told me that I still have my values. This is a great story when you feel sad depressed and don’t have much self esteem. I would listen to this story when I feel sad always. ;)

Your highest value
Always hold yourself in your highest value. Your value will never diminish. Don’t ever let your trials and tribulations, hurts and sorrows - or the misguided or intentionally hurtful words and actions of others chip away at the value you hold for yourself. You are valuable. You are important. You are lovable. — I am valuable. I am important. I am lovable. No one can decrease my value. I came into this world with infinite value and worth. I cherish it every day. I love myself every day.

Lately value has disappeared from me. I’ve been forgetting my true value. However, listening to this (very) short story, I’ve reassured myself of my value and no matter what, whether it’s dirty or crumpled, it’s still the equal amount just like the 20$. My value has not decreased for it has not faded. It has simply put me to the test and tested me. It was not easy, nor was it the funnest thing. But I’ve come to realize, this was life leveling me up for more challenges.

I learned that I attract into my life that which i have become so accustomed to. I also learned that I don’t always have to like what’s happening in the world but I can’t change anyone else. I must accept others and learn to live life on life’s terms. I am brave and courageous. Today I live in accordance to what is good and right for me personally. Afters so many years of having lived, loved and learned, and all I’ve experienced, I am so very grateful today that my soul doesn’t come with a price tag. Just for today I can choose integrity.

I listened to this story two months ago. I WISH I could say that things went as well as I had hoped back then, but instead? Everything pretty much fell part for me! At the time, I was busy enrolling in the local community college at the behest of the state department of rehabilitation in order to receive some very much needed aid after my massive stroke, hospitalization and long unemployment, but the DOR reneged on that offer, while the college messed up my enrollment something awful! I've had no choice but to give up completrly on the school idea and getting any did from the DOR. Leaving me feeling quite depressed and a bit hopeless. Not TOO very different from before, but I DARED to hold out some hope, only to gave it thrown on the floor and ground under the heel of life, like the professor ”ruining” the $20 bill. Like in the story, I KNOW I still have value, and I've not given up completely on my dreams and goals, I've just had to have a strong rethink of them!

No matter how much you have been thru or continue to go thru your value doesn’t decrease or depreciate. Your self worth and what you are worth are in your eyes.. don’t ever look back at the downfalls instead a stepping stone

I never am one to think of a person as less simply because they may be at their lowest but I am guilty of thinking less of myself even when I am at my best. What a fabulous analogy for our value as people moving through the world, one not only applied to others but mostly, to ourselves.

ive learned tht no matter wht happens in my life & wht flaws (be it physically or mentally) i hve, my worth & value will never decrease. it all comes down to my mindset. if i create a strong mindset & always fill it with positive thoughts, i’ll build up my self-esteem & overall confidence slowly. hence, no one can bring me down.

Self Love
We push ourselves down often over mistakes or chances we didn’t take. We think we are less because we don’t have a certain item or we don’t act or look a certain way. Yet we have so much to offer because we are still human and we are still valuable. We should be able to see how amazing we are and how important it is for us to be living in this world.

Appreciation time
I really enjoyed this session, it came actually in a moment where I truly needed something like this. It is not important the mistakes we’ve made, the pain we’ve felt, the anxiety, the discouragement and so on.. we still ARE the owners of our destiny, our life is precious and it’s never too late to change and turn it into something to love. On my way.

I learned that until I loved and valued myself, no one else would. It’s easy to say you have self love, but until you’re out in a position to prove it by standing up for yourself and removing negativity from your life, it’s just words. I’ve been down and depressed and felt unloved and rejected. But once I made the decision to love me for me, my world changed! Only light and love comes in now! Every day is full of joy and I hope to share that with someone special very soon! ❤️

Still on my journey for self love
Regardless of all the struggles I have been through in my past it has helped me become who I am today, in a positive way. I appreciate my time alone more and choose that time more wisely, the right person will come into my life with time. Every steeping stone is a past in which we learned a valuable lesson, on to the next.

Perfect timing
So very often we doubt our worth and ourselves. We are alliw others to get under our skin so they are able to “crumple” our belief in ourselves ~ oftentimes, we allow ourselves to remain crumpled in that heap. Someone my squash us with their words, treatment, lack of social or professional courtesy, etc... and we may continue to lay there, just because our self-esteem leaves us with no idea of what to do next. This Aura Story reminded me, and all of us, that we each have an intrinsic value that never ever decreases. We MUST carry that value with every step, the way we carry ourselves, the way we love ourselves. Thank you!!!!

We’re all worth this world. Still we are letting us down by so many bad things we are surrounded by everyday. There is bad people, stress,anxiety and what else in these world. Sometime we just really want to give up. But the most important thing is to always stand up and fight against it. We are worth this world and we should fight for our future.

I feel a bit better about myself. I’ve been depressed for a long, long time. Refusing to get help cause being sad is my comfort zone, but that doesn’t make me any less deserving of the happiness out there. I need to raise myself up to a higher standard and see the world in a better perspective, and it starts by looking at myself in the mirror with a better perspective.

I learned that no matter what happens to us or our circumstances in life our value never changes! We need to remember this always! You need to know worth and no matter what problems or challenges you face always know it and believe it! Your worth more then gold and just because you’re not where you wanna be, made bad choices or have difficult days, your past, etc. doesn’t mean your any less valuable then the next person. We are all human. We all make mistakes but you have to love yourself and no that your value never changes! Just cause someone doesn’t see your worth or because of things you been through doesn’t change your worth. This is a great reminder for everyone! I really enjoyed starting my day off with this mindful moment 🧘🏼‍♀️

Third go-round
This is the third time I've heard this session by Cassandra. I'm not really much further along than I was the last couple of times I reflected on this teaching. I DID just arrange a long-awaited follow-up meeting with my friend, daughter’s teacher and co-coach of our school’s LEGO robotics team to try and further her few projects though! So I'm feeling pretty good about that! It's progress at any rate!
