When you’re feeling down, low, extra sensitive, or just drained - how do you take care of yourself?
If you’re like most people, then you probably try to cure these negative emotions with things like mani-pedis, flowers, or treating yourself with your favorite comfort food.
And while all these things are nice and soothing, most people also forget that self-care comes from self-worth.
The hard truth is, you can’t practice self-care without truly believing you deserve all these good things in the first place.
This is why it’s so important to tackle the root cause of your lack of motivation or your low vibration and make sure you’re not relying on mani/pedis or shopping sprees as a quick fix to mask your insecurities rather than as part of an authentic self-care regimen.
“Most people want a quick fix, but that’s how self-care works. It’s a whole way of looking at life, a whole way of living, taking care of yourself.” ~Babette Galang
If you’re open to a new way of self-care that will shift your mindset, then ask yourself these 10 questions for a healthier and happier you:
1. What am I not saying, that needs to be said?
2. Do I feel unheard or left out?
3. What fear am I afraid to face?
4. Am I holding onto resentment or guilt?
5. Do I have an abundance mindset?
6. Do my everyday choices bring me long-term fulfillment or simply instant gratification?
7. Do I use situations to grow and evolve or to beat myself up?
8. Have I said something gentle and loving to myself in the last hour or even day?
9. Am I appreciative of all the things in my life?
10. So what does self-care really mean?
Self-care sometimes means taking a deep, long breath. Sometimes it’s just shutting down your computer.
Sometimes it’s a good cry and other times it’s going deeper into your core and facing your fears. For me this week, my self-care practice involved clearing my energy.
And whenever I feel stuck or as if something is blocking my ability to reach my goals, I turn to The Free Flow Energy Clearing System.
My team and I designed this meditation audio specifically to clear your energetic 'blueprint' of all blocks and negative charges so you can stay energetically empowered.
And remember… the higher your vibration the higher your ability to attract more abundance into your life!
But don’t take my word for it. Give it a try here, and let's turn you into an unstoppable force of manifesting nature :)
