6 Steps to Manifesting Dignity
Dignity is respect. But not the getting of it, the giving of it.
Growing the reality, definition and concept of dignity and manifesting more of it involves changing the emphasis of the meaning of inherently receiving respect, to daily giving it to others. This is how dignity can grow in the self, organizations, communities and countries.
Dignity is not quite the same as respect. It is our innate value as human beings. It is about the human desire in all of us to be treated fairly, respectfully in relation to others and in our situation. Recognizing these commonalities is the first step to eliminating conflicts at work, at home and between nations.
In times of destabilization, a stabilizing force is manifestation. The idea of the law of attraction works two ways. By thinking and speaking about the things we don’t want in our lives, such as fear and poverty and indecencies, they naturally manifest in our lives and in the world. If we choose to see only the negative aspects of a situation, it will grow ever more dire, spiralling into exactly what one was most worried about and working hardest against. At times, we need to release anger, in healthy ways before manifesting or, all we will manifest is more anger.
In every situation there is opportunity for a reversal of the situation, growth and change. The solution to almost all problems is to think about, talk about and focus on what you do want. These manifestation tools can be used by anyone for really trying to make any goal or change happen in there lives or organization. Imagine it happening already.
Focus in on what you truly want and ask for it . . .
Clear the decks. Start with yourself. If you want more dignity, foster it in yourself and treat others with it. If dignity for all or humanity, the right to respect and ethical treatment is what you want to be a part of your organization, process or works make a clear visionary or policy statement. Educate others about it. Learn from other agencies about it such as the Red Cross, or create new policies or agencies to aid or oversee. In a care giving and getting situation, ask for what would make you feel more dignified. In what ways can you still give back or to others? Maybe, it’s a laugh, a smile or a supportive word.
Seek help and answers . . .
Ask the universe through prayer, meditation or visualization. Explore the world wide web, it’s its own information universe but it is also a masquerade. Seek trusted media sources and experts in their fields. Go directly to those with more experience than you and seek their expertise. Research the pros and cons of a situation for everyone involved, to try to find viable solutions. In a care giving or getting situation, dignity comes with the tools for maintaining independence. Get the tools you need, be it a walker or hearing aid. Get the support you need, someone to mow the lawn or provide cleaning services. Get the self-care you need. Keep up with your healthcare appointments, exercise and nurture yourself. Ask for help, if you need it. There is no lack of dignity in this. You are teaching others dignity too.
Work toward your goals . . .
Whatever you can do, or dream you can do, begin it. Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it. Begin it now. ~ Goethe. Know your own worth without needing to put others down to feel important. Try random acts of kindness. Share overheard compliments. Apologize. Listen. Correct your course as necessary. Plan. Research. Intuit.
Become a conscious creator and trust the process . . .
Live by design, rather than reaction or default. Increase your faith to achieve your goals by living your passion. Uproot false and limiting beliefs and replace them with true and empowering beliefs. Create and manifest your goals. A dignified person is one who makes positive contributions in the lives of others. One is fulfilled because they know they have created success and happiness for others.
Keep your good vibes . . .
Be aware of how much you complain about your life to others. Be aware how much you criticize yourself and others. A person who respects themselves doesn’t allow negative events to bring them down. Instead, try to take difficult moments and turn them into productivity. Determine what went wrong and use that as motivation to turn things around. Mistakes and rejections are learning opportunities that can be used to improve yourself in the future. When faced with the loss of abilities as we age, we can do our best to be our best as we are right now. This is inner dignity. It is in every way beautiful. What keeps your good vibes going? Maybe it is dancing, reading a book, massage, sharing a laugh with friends, chair yoga, bridge, painting or pickleball.
Receive the immediate and long-term rewards . . .
What you manifest in yourself, you can share with others. Find dignity for yourself, treat others around you with dignity, create companies and policies that are inclusive of dignity. Find large and small ways to share our humanity.
In what ways can we respect each other’s boundaries and work towards those goals? Be truly dignified. Show respect for others.
