Deep self-care is what brings your soul in complete alignment with who you are. It's what feeds your soul on every level, and allows you to truly rest and lean into truth and trust. Deep self-care nourishes you in such a way that you feel more alive, more energetic, more complete, more passion and life! I find ways to make sure I have deep self-care on all levels; spiritual, physical, mental, energetic. I ask myself, what connects me to Source/Gaia and replenishes my energy so I am able to be mother, wife, friend, healer...then I make time for it.
Connecting in with myself daily allows me to seek my truth for that day. What does my body/mind/spirit need now? What can I do now that will replenish my energy reserves so I am available to others? How do I communicate those deep, soulful needs to myself and those around me?
And I'm not talking about the self-care that just keeps you moving, that maintains you; but the kind that transforms you.
Tending to my flame is allowing me to find my truth. Tend your flame, have the courage to speak it, and let your voice speak to you! You have all the power you need within; tap into that beautiful, soul-inspired place and allow the sacredness of who you are rise.
Some days I need complete rest or time alone, other days deep breathing is called for to calm and rejuvenate me. Whatever it might be, make time for it. I am worth it. You are worth it. And with each deep breath or meditation or drum beat we are making this world stronger with love, connection, and truth. Find your truth for today, and live it boldly.
