Come, sit with me, close your eyes, hold my hand, let's go far away from this place to the place in which you came from.
"All of my Actions are Self-Care Actions"
All of my actions are acts of self-care. When you place love before you, and do your actions in love, with love, you are practicing self-care. Operating in love is self-care, because if you find it hard to do whatever you're doing in love, should you really be doing it? If what you're doing isn't making you feel good inside, should you be using your time doing it?
Even when you are doing something for someone else, aren't you doing it for yourself too? Are you doing it out of love for them? We should be enjoying what we are doing, or else why would we do it? When it's something that we are doing, but we don't particularly enjoy doing it, isn't it still for the benefit of us? We are doing it because we know it needs to be done, it is self-care.
We don't have to enjoy it for it to be self-care, but if it is going to take care of us now and in the future, preventing us future pain and misfortune, then it is indeed self-care. If you really take a closer look at what self-care is, you would realize that every action that you take, is stemming from self-care. It is human nature to preserve self, to protect self, and to save self. We always try to get back to ourselves, even when we are out of sync with ourselves, in the back of our mind, we are thinking of how to find our way back to ourselves. Our subconscious mind will do it's works to help us get back in alignment with ourself.
It is not selfish to take care of self, it actually is the opposite. Because if you do not take care of yourself first, you won't be able to be of any service to anyone else. Isn't that why we're here? Aren't we here to be companions to others, serve others, and enrich someone else's life. Isn't this why people love you, because of the energy that you bring to them, how you make them feel about themselves? You are a messenger, a reminder, to them of what they should be or could be doing to bring more love and happiness into their center of their lives. When you perform a kind act for someone else, that kind act leaves a wonderful impression, that causes a ripple of other kind acts being passed forward. When you bring value to someone else's life, you are performing an act of self-care, because you will feel good inside knowing that you make someone else feel good too.
What makes you feel good is self-care.
When we take care of ourselves, we strengthen ourselves to be of service, of help to other people without building resentment, because we won't be pouring from an empty vessel. I look at everything I do from a point of self-care. It is the reason why I say no, I won't be able to do that, and why I must cancel engagements sometimes. I don't answer phone calls and text messages if my energy isn't up or in the right place for a phone conversation. To operate in total self-care, I don't do things just for money, I do them with all of my heart. If I feel out of alignment and I need to do spiritual work, I don't go. I have learned hard lessons by going when I was out of alignment with my spiritual nature, with God. I have destroyed my own self and the perception of what others had of me, going when I was out of alignment, and God gave me the signs to not go.
I read and research things throughly before I get involved in it, before I consume it, to preserve myself and protect myself from harm and the low energy of regret. I have learned hard lessons by not researching, not going to God, and taking man's word for it. I don't make moves without consulting with God. I don't even make a phone call if I don't consult with my higher self. I get in tune with myself and my energy and I can literally feel the energy of the other person from miles away. All of my actions stem from self-care, self-care is protecting one's self.
If a person treats me unkind, or if I pick up on a shady vibe from them, I will create a distance between us. I will stay away from them as much as possible, it doesn't matter if it's a friend, a family member, or an associate, I stay away. I have learned much needed lessons and gotten my heart hurt, in not listening to my intuition when I have picked up on particular vibes. I don't care what comes out of their mouth or how they act, I trust the vibes, because the vibes come from God. I am the type of person who wants to love everyone, and I will, and I can, even if it's from a distance.
I keep away from people who hold bitterness, jealousy that they think no one can see, and resentment, this is protecting myself. People have to do their own spiritual work, no one can do it for them. Spiritual work comes before any other work that I do, that is my self-care. I know that if a person doesn't do any kind of spiritual work they are filled with junk that needs to be cleaned out. There are some people that they need to forgive, and they need to forgive themselves. They have to get close to their loving nature, and look inside of themselves. This is true self-care. To make sure that these unpleasant experiences of the world aren’t festering inside of us. We have to remove the stain from our heart about the offenses that someone has done to us.
If I see an unhealthy pattern with someone in relation to how they respond to me, how they treat me, I back out. I remove myself and love them from a distance. This is how you don't end up with a hurtful pinned up frustrated story. The people who make you a priority and give you full attention when they are with you, show you love, support you, and encourage you, are the people that deserve your time. They are the people who truly care, and keeping the company of people who truly care about you, is self-care.
Upon going to sleep and just before rising, this is an extremely important time, because this is the highest point of manifestation, when the subconscious mind is most active. I will talk about this point many more times so that it is engrained in your mind. This is a special time for thinking, feeling, and visualizing all the things that you want to experience in your future, but see it as it is already done. This is most important for self-care, because self-care sets you up for the future. Don't use this time to think about your the problems that you think you have. Don't use this valuable time to think about what you don't want, regret, and what you feel you shouldn't have done. Don't utilize this time to think about who did you wrong, and all of your hurts. Don't think about your fears, think about what you love, and see yourself enjoying all the good that you deserve. That is self-care.
Love is the highest form of self-care.
If you don't show care for you, don't expect anyone else to do it for you.
I love you,
Thanks for reading! I am grateful for you!
