Today’s poem, perspective and question are poised to inspire us to be fully present as we make choices from the heart.
To be free from stress and anxiety without medication, a shift is needed in the way we perceive ourself. By shifting our perception from what we do (doing) to who we are (being), we access, experience and express the power of life, freeing ourself from fear.
Today we’re talking about heroes, villains, victims … and self-care as the way to peace within us and the world.
Self-care and rebellion are intimately linked. If we’ve ever promised ourself the moon, healthier habits or happier choices, only to be tripped up by our inner rebel and fell into a physical, mental or emotional ditch, this article is for us.
Emotional sabotage refers to thoughts, actions, and relationships that sabotage the inclusion and healthy expression of our full range of our emotions. If we have relationships where our true emotions are not welcome, if we don’t accept all our emotions, or if we try to stuff, drown, or escape our emotions with unhealthy habits, this article is for us.
If we’d like to heal, we need to feel. Unfortunately, many of us are out of touch with what we feel emotionally and physically—thereby holding our healing at bay.
Though the concept of self-care may sound good, it may be easier said than done. In today’s article, we’ll discuss the main reason we avoid self-care, and how to shift our self-perception to allow us to give and receive self-care.
The way we respond to the question “how do you feel” reflects the state of our soul. If we respond with a superficial and meaningless “Fine,” if we respond before we actually know how we feel, if we respond in a way that is opposite of our truth, if we resist the question, resist replying, resist knowing how we feel (or we know someone like this), this article is for us.
When we’re unaware of what’s happening within us, anxiety can easily arise. By being out of touch with what we’re experiencing, we’ve abandoned ourself. Although this experience of being unaware seems to be common, by learning to listen within, we can free ourself from anxiety and experience the peaceful truth within.
Does anxiety, stress, frustration and overwhelm seem like a norm? Making space for our emotions can allow us to feel, connect, and open up to ourself and life.
