The order of self-validation is from spirit to soul; soul to ego; ego to body; and body to life. As you connect with these essential parts of yourself you will no longer be fooled by the illusion that you need external validation to feel good.

 “When we consistently suppress and distrust our intuitive knowingness, looking instead for authority, validation, and approval from others, we give our personal power away.” –Shakti Gawain


There is no amount of external validation that can compensate for a lack of self-validation. If you find that you’re looking for approval in the outer world then pause, turn inward, and search for the light of your spirit to provide direction.

Validate yourself by giving attention to your spirit, soul, ego, body, and life. Start your day by tuning in for direction from spirit; trust your soul to guide you; heal your wounded ego; take good care of your body; and enjoy life to the fullest!

Your spirit is a source of light to see the best direction for you to go. Your soul illuminates your wounded ego to be healed by the light. A healthy ego takes form as a healthy body. A healthy body enjoys life to the fullest. Recognizing the value that each part contributes to your wellbeing is a way of validating yourself.

Your spirit naturally validates your soul with love and light and provides direction for your journey. You are valuing the presence of your spirit every time you move in the direction of your highest good and allow your light to shine.

Your soul validates your ego by helping to heal all of its wounded parts. It speaks with the voice of intuition and uses the language of emotions to get your attention. Once the ego becomes whole it makes a healthy companion for your soul.

Your ego validates your body by having a healthy self-image. Your body is the physical representation of your thoughts, beliefs, and emotions. It is constantly responding to every positive or negative thought you have about yourself. 

Your body validates your life by experiencing it with all of your physical senses. Show up for life with a body that is grounded in the present moment and deeply engaged in the miracle of living.
