I would like you to be aware of how you physically touch somebody whom you deeply care for - Someone whom you love...
I want you to really feel how you are with them, how you care, so immensely. How your heart swells for them - This could be towards a lover, partner, parent, friend, or your own child. Even a pet.
Now, I invite you to become totally conscious of when you last touched and held yourself in this way?
When you last laid down with yourself in this way?
When you last held your own hand, so lovingly with full support?
When you last committed to total self care, and delicacy?
Maybe, you have just become conscious of how you never touch yourself in this way. Or how you never love so deeply upon yourself like this - How you never prioritize yourself so highly, like this.
Most people are so very sick & tired; burnt-out.
We are taught to put the needs of everybody else above and before our own - in order to be deemed a "good person."
We collectively champion self-sacrifice as an honorable way to live. When in fact, it is actually the most disconnected, disempowered, and misaligned way to live.
Its why there is so much disease and suffering.
Because if we dont come to understand love and compassion within self, we will never truly be able to embody it for others. To love outwardly will slowly kill us, if it is not being replenished internally.
Giving to others, that which we are not willing to give ourselves, is the epitome of unconscious behaviour.
To clarify, I am not suggesting for you to show zero empathy or compassion towards others.
I am not suggesting you abuse or hurt others.
What im suggesting is that you do not inflict your own being with the above poison, while attempting to do right by everyone else.
We tend to be the meanest to ourselves, which is a collective trauma - and one of the most egoic places to be functioning from.
I'm inviting you to figure out how to put your own internal being 1st, always. And to deal with all the confrontation, insecurity, embarrassment and shame, which wells up in you, as you attempt to be absolutely beautiful towards yourself.
Even just hearing that invitation may trigger the conditioned fear of appearing "selfish".
If you are not first looked-after by self - your attempts to assist and love others will take so much out of you; it will wear you down and burn you out.
You must refrain from giving to others that which you haven’t even figured out how to give to yourself yet - in order to mend your relationship with your spirit.
Put your hands on yourself.
Put your lovingness onto yourself.
Take time with yourself.
Have more compassion.
Listen to your body.
Respect your body.
Monitor the diet you allow your mind to consume.
Come to a place of being able to hear every millimeter of yourself.
Honor your NO just as much as your YES.
Every piece of you must be met, must be loved-on, in order to restore you to your default place of health, power, and intelligence.
See how you have been conditioned to avoid your deepest truth.
We take pills to silence the screaming body.
We drink coffee to make it go faster and longer than is good for it.
We drink alcohol to run away from it.
Love is the cure for what ails you.
But what they never told us - is that it starts with you. It starts with your own touch, and a hell of a lot of patience.
In love and support,
