Self-Care

How do you nurture yourself?

Do you give yourself time to just be?

Or are you in constant motion

Trying to control your world?

Dear One, it is important for you to self-nurture on a regular basis. Your perceived world can feel overwhelming, we understand, but in order to move forward, time must be made for YOU.

There is always enough time. This is a truth that you have not yet accepted. Your perceived priorities can always be altered. And perhaps it is time for you to review those priorities in your own life.

You have a penchant for putting others first, feeling that time for others is much more important than time for you. Can you begin to make adjustments to this way of living to include some quiet time in your day just for thee?

The truth is that this time of inactivity allows you to better connect with your higher self; that part of you who is free from worry, free from fear and free from self-judgment. The cycle that you are in at this time can be broken. But it begins with times of stillness.

Once you begin this practice, the worry about priorities, the fear of lack, the self-judgment of not doing enough will abate. But first, this new cycle of time for thee is necessary to start this process of stronger connection.

As you move forward in this new practice, you will begin to realize that what you previously perceived as a great priority is not that important. You will begin to calm that active mind of yours to a mere idle rather than a chaotic burst of thoughts and worries. You will begin to understand that the fear you project out into your personal world is self-created and may be dissolved by changing your perceptions.

Dear One, can you give this gift to yourself and to the world? Will a few minutes of stillness in your day cause the world to break into pieces? Can you not direct some of that loving energy back towards yourself so that you can move forward in grace and confidence that all is well?

Begin today. Close your eyes and focus on your breath for just a few minutes. Reconnect with the greatness within you. For it is there, we can see it in all of its glory. It is time for you to see it yourself. It is time for you to understand that you are never alone. The connection is always there with the All.

You, Dear One, deserve this time of stillness.

You, Dear One, require this time to replenish your energy.

You, Dear One, shall move through your life with a lighter step as you strengthen that connection daily.

Change your world by first caring for yourself.

Your day can wait for a few moments as you center yourself and breathe.

It will still be there after you return and open your eyes, refreshed and stronger in knowing that you are part of something much larger than yourself.

Pause for just a moment.

And feel the joy, the peace, the love within you.

It has never left you.

But has been patiently awaiting your return.

Dear One with All of Thee.
