As a healer one of my biggest lessons was to learn to heal and take care of myself. I would always share what I had with others, family, friends and others who just needed help. Sometimes I would give so much that I would literally have nothing left for myself... no food, or money to buy things I wanted. For years I thought I was doing the noble and righteous thing, and I was. But I was also lacking one important point....
Self preservation is key.
I had to really internalize this message. I had been brought up to think that I was second best or not good enough, like many of us are. My healing was to begin the work of changing my mindset. I had to learn to embrace my unique qualities, my slender frame and exotic look. I learned to truly love and accept myself and give to myself the things I wanted without feeling bad or that someone else will miss out. I began to find it okay to say no to others when I felt like my plate was full. I began to give back to myself the love and the attention that I needed to move forward. I found that when you truly love yourself you don't do things that are not good for you. When you truly love yourself you become very clear about who you are, what you will accept, and what is really good for you. With that you find the strength to make the right choices for yourself.
This was a few years ago, but I see so many who are still in that cycle of wearing themselves thin.
So here are some tips for taking care of yourself in a natural way:
I pray this will bless your journey.
