On day 13 of myself care exploration, it is fascinating to watch what gives me pleasure, nourishes me and energizes me. It changes too, depending on the day, my mood and what is going on. I have been paying such closer attention to the things I do throughout my day that fuel me, that drain me and how to shift into a different mindset, emotion and physical energy by giving self care when I am in a low vibe. It is the true essence of self care. To notice how you are when you can, then give yourself what you need in that moment to feel, be or think better.
Obviously, we don't always notice how tense we are or in a struggle but when we do, we can find a tool to take care of ourselves which means re-balance, recenter. It can be quick, fun and easy. It is an honoring of me when I do this. It is paying attention, feeling my feelings, see what is about creating issue or if it is within, then seeking a way to get back to a brighter, empowered way of me. This is for me, chosen by me and I do this awareness so I can be and feel good, cared for and in charge of myself. my emotions, my mind. This is how our spirit, our authenticity shows up and we get to know ourselves intimately.
It all makes such sense to do this stuff. Mentally we get it. Emotionally we don't really vibe it. If we did, we would naturally do this for ourselves. We could always deepen this practice for it is true awareness of ourselves in any given moment. Taking care of yourself first so you may better serve others is how we say it in my minister school. Why don't we vibe this emotionally?
I consider it is because we don't investigate ourselves enough. We need to sense ourselves and our emotions. We need to then play with things to see how that makes us feel. We get to chose and do what works for us and it is different than another. The ideas of beauty and looks, authenticity are put out there as rules that are just not correct for most of us. We need to decide for ourselves and let the world think what it may. No one can fit the rules of the world always. In fact, regarding beauty, I don't like the standard so I make my own.
We all get to do this. We all feel authentic, joyful, beautiful, cared for in different ways. Find and honor your way. We have different love languages and it pays to know yours and maybe observe others. Exploring this, exploring self care supports your understanding of you. It is paramount so that you are not taking others rules or outside appearances as your truth for you won't feel fulfilled. I believe this is the great problem to many woman. You find out what feels good. You do those things that support and nourish you. Only you can figure that out, do those things and tell others. We don't all fit in one catagory. Especially woman. We are dynamic change. We shift our ideas quickly and it is all ok and natural.
So really investigate yourself. That is what is missing in our feminine way of being. We are using others ideas as our pleasure base and it is not working. This adventure I am on is magical. I am finding my way with self care in great levels. I chose who, what, how and where to feel good and nourished. I get to play with my beauty, inspiring my soul and being how I want. It is the mastery of being a woman and honoring your and your flavor. Very fun indeed!
