Your work first and foremost, is to take care of you.
How are you doing at that job?
Are you taking time for quiet and rest and meditation?
Are you asking for help when you need it?
Are you speaking your truth?
Here’s the big question; do you allow yourself to receive or are you always the one that is giving?
When I ask these questions of my students most of the time I hear:
Operating From A State Of Resistance
You are a vibratory being and your willingness to be in a state of “allowing” versus the state of “resistance” is the key to you developing an abundant life.
As you are reading this blog post, these words may not be foreign to you.
However, understanding the state of resistance and how you currently may be allowing it to block your ability to grow your business, to develop deep meaningful relationships and fill your bank account until it overflows, may still elude you.
In addition, learning how to shift the paradigm from being “resistant” to being in a state of “allowing” may not be clear to you.
Do You Expect Others and Situations to Change Before You Can Be Happy?
Even though you believe the words: “Be the change you seek”, are you still waiting for peace to arrive?
You may be convinced that you’d be happy if your family appreciated you more, if your bank account was full, or if you could finally take the two-week break that you need so badly.
But, if you believe that your happiness will only happen when circumstances change and others shift their behavior, you are giving your power away and that will leave you feeling inadequate, and powerless.
Although you may wish to live in the higher realm of who you are, if your actions speak to your belief that your peace is reliant on anyone other then you, you are mistaken.
Being kind and compassionate are spiritual values that matter greatly to those of us on a spiritual path. You may believe that you work from a heart centered space or perhaps you make a point of sharing your values with your friends and children, encouraging them to move forward in their higher wisdom every day.
Yet when you get home after you’ve spent a day battling traffic, healing others, and listening to your employees concerns and you’re tired and exhausted, can one unkind word from your partner send you over the tipping point?
Are you able to respond from your heart or do you snap back with harsh words and lots of unkind thoughts?
While you may speak of the importance of being open to abundance, does that belief go right out the window when your bank account is in the red leaving you filled with fear and anxiety? As your worries mount, do you forget that you know that fear closes the door to abundance?
Now is a perfect time to gently and kindly remind you in the midst of all of our global chaos, to please take care of you.
The United States just had an election that has left us seemingly polarized, as overnight we move from a president who worked from the energy of “hope“ to a president who seems to hold fear as his weapon of choice.
Around the world people continue to fight for basic rights, liberties and something as basic as food and water.
For those of us privileged to not have to worry about where our next meal is coming from, the bills still need to be paid, the children and animals taken care of and then there’s us.
We need care too.
