I’m Reverend Christine Einarson and am here to take you on a very powerful short meditation created by Dr. Anne Marie Evers. Find a comfortable place to sit or lie down, one where you will not be disturbed. Wear comfortable clothes.
Clear your mind of all cares, worries and endless thoughts. Just allow yourself to BE.
Now take several deep breaths, on the out-breath, breathe out all and any negativity and on the in-breath, breathe in peace, joy, love and happiness.

Now you are ready to embark on your incredible, wondrous journey into self-discovery and self-realization, a world that only YOU can discover.

Gently close your eyes.
                                                 Let’s Begin 
With your eyes closed, take my hand and I will lead you to the top of the3 steps that will take you down into deep meditation. These steps are covered in pure velvet so you can take off your shoes and go in your bare feet if you wish.
1st Step 
You are so safe and becoming more and more relaxed. You are excited and enthusiastic about this journey.
2nd Step   
Down deeper, deeper into relaxation and still so safe and protected and peaceful. Your body is a little numb and so-o-o relaxed you just don’t feel like moving it.
3rd Step
Take this last step that puts you onto a soft, glistening carpet of grass. Your have arrived. Look around you at the beautiful garden of Angels, flowers, trees and God’s creations.
Look — Look over there — There is the River of Self-Esteem with its beautiful pink water. See the Angel of Self-Esteem. She hands you some carving tools and motions you to a large block of ice and encourages you to carve out the perfect YOU!
The Angel of Self-Esteem has a lovely picture of you, looking radiantly happy, peaceful and full of self-confidence. She leaves this picture by the block of ice and fades into the background.
 It is your choice to leave it there or to pick it up and use it as a guide when chiseling the perfect YOU out the block of ice. When you have finished your carving and your image is exactly what you wish it to be then go to the river and take a container from the bank and fill it with the Magical pink water of self-esteem.
Holding the picture in your hand that the Angel of Self-Esteem gave you, you softly whisper “Thank you, thank you, thank you” to that beautiful Angel for your miracle.
A h h h ………….. Just take a moment or two to be quiet and totally allow these happy, positive feelings to sink deep into your subconscious mind, where they will take root, grow and become reality in your Life. Know that you will never in the state of not loving, respecting and approving of yourself again. You are totally lovable, loved and loving. You are filled to the brim with healthy self-respect, self-esteem and self-worth. You are truly amazed at how great you feel. In this state of total relaxation allow these words to saturate your entire body – “I am loving, loved and lovable. I am love!
Pause for a second of two. You feel so light and comfortable in your body.  Now start your short journey home back up the stairs you came down.
3rd Step 
Going up, still relaxed and peaceful. You are feeling more and more relaxed and peaceful as the time goes by.
2nd Step
Going up still another step. You really don’t want to leave this truly magical and healing place,
but you know you have to go back to reality.
1st Step
You have arrived.
You take a deep breath and breathe in the fresh brisk air.
You will never ever doubt yourself again or feel that you are inferior to others. Your self-love and self-respect are growing by leaps and bounds daily.
You have the picture of yourself looking so happy and self-confident. Any ‘so-called mistakes from the past are just that — past, completely forgotten! You know there is no right or wrong way only the chosen way. Use any ‘so-called’ mistakes as extraordinary fertilizer for your present and coming successes.
You can feel your self-confidence level rising. You feel totally wonderful. This healing power is surging throughout your body. You feel so relaxed and comforted.  You are so happy and excited.
At the count of 3 you will become wide awake, happy and excited to go on about your everyday life.
1   Open your eyes and look around.
2   Become aware of where you are.
3   Wide awake, excited and full of enthusiasm and expectancy.
           And knowing that Affirmations When Properly Done Always Work!
The good news is that you can go back to visit anytime you wish, just play this Meditation and it will bring back all the memories. Each time you go on the meditation it will be different—at times more in depth, sometimes more serious and other times full of fun and laughter.
You have your Magic Self-Esteem Wand, your Trigger Tool to make your Affirmation Meditation a reality. You have taken your Affirmation out of the unreal (the unknown), and placed it into the real (the known) by participating in this Self-Esteem Meditation.
You already have that radiant self-confidence and it is appearing in your reality.
Now say, “Thank you, thank you, thank you,” and live in an attitude of gratitude and be open, accept and receive your completed Self-Esteem Affirmation.
Act ‘As if’you are already that person full of self-confidence, health and happiness.
It is yours! Step into it. After this Meditation you will never be the same. All worry, concern and frustration about not being good enough or not able to do the things you want to do have gone. It evaporated as if by magic.
           For even greater impact it is suggested that you write out the following–
       “I, (your name) deserve and NOW forgive everyone and everything that has
        ever hurt me. I now forgive myself. I love, respect and approve of myself
        just the way I am. Every day my self-esteem grows. All negative feelings
        of low self-worth and not deserving NOW leave my body completely.
        I love feeling happy and I know I am important. I count in this world.
        I am healthy and happy to the good of all parties concerned. Thank you
        thank you, thank you.”
        I fully accept
        Signed _________________       
        Dated _________________
At the end add the Short form Affirmation which consists of several key words taken from your Master Affirmation, which are, “EVERY DAY MY SELF-ESTEEM GROWS.” Keep this statement in your wallet and make sure you look at it and repeat it to yourself often to magnetize and draw it into your mind.

Thank you for listening and we support you in realizing your heart’s desire.
          Nancy Used Affirmations to Increase Her Self-Esteem

When I was a child I was always told that I could not do this and that because I was too small, too young, not smart enough, too fat, etc.  After having read your Affirmations book I have adopted one of your methods with great results. When someone says something negative to me, I say, “Cancel, Cancel or Delete, Delete that is not true, I am the greatest, or I am happy, always rushing to fill that empty space with a positive statement. I feel so much better these days. I am also saying, “I love, respect and approve of myself just the way I am.” I am feeling better about myself than I have for years. Many thanks.
