Day 10: Nurture Your Self, Oc 10

NURTURE YOUR SELF  Do you daily take quiet time to simply be? When is the last time you enjoyed a massage, a manicure or a day at the spa? If you have a partner, when was the last time you received special attention, such as having your hair brushed or head petted?

Have you taken time to soak your body in warm water? Do you often stop and enjoy the beauty in nature? Have you taken time to read books or magazines that you find interesting? How often do you call someone to get their opinion on how you can improve yourself? Take time each morning, before you get out of bed and ask your body, “What do I need today to be full of energy and joy?”

Once you learn to listen, you will find that your body will tell you exactly what it needs. Pay attention to your aches and pains; your body was designed with alarm systems to tell you when it needs food, water, exercise and rest. Do you feel hot or cold? Wear the appropriate clothing, even if it is not fashionable. It takes a tremendous amount of energy to regulate body temperature.

Are you overworking your muscles? Do less toil and take time to nurture your muscles with a massage or warm bath. Have you considered petting yourself and thanking your body? Develop a close, personal relationship with your body. Begin by gazing into your eyes while looking at your reflection in a mirror and telling yourself that you love you, that you are a wonderful person and that you are beautiful.

Pay attention to your body each moment as you prepare to eat; ask your body what it needs. Listen to its responses. When you feel bloated, gassy, weak or tired, note what foods you have recently eaten and change your diet accordingly. When you nurture yourself, you will feel more healthy and vibrant. From this physical state, you will have much more energy to be mentally healthy and feel balanced and in joy. This state of balance overflows into your emotional health, leaving you with the time, energy and desire to nurture your spiritual essence, as well.

Not until all four aspects of your physical, mental, emotional and spiritual self are intact, can you truly nurture others. It is then that you can be of service to others in a more beneficial way. You will more likely be effective and nourish their needs, rather than coming from a place of co-dependence, guilt or shame. Heaven on earth can be obtained when each of you treats yourself and others in a balanced way, coming from heart connections that nurture all. We cannot emphasize enough the importance of monitoring your thoughts, words and actions. It takes a tremendous amount of energy to “de-glop” these energies, so why create them in the first place?   Thank you for all you do!  Selamet!  Oc 10
