Do You Care for Yourself?

SELF-CARE

We talk about self-care often. We remind our friends and our loved ones to actively care for themselves all the time. But we still don’t do it for ourselves. Why? We’ve got a million reasons why not, don’t we?

This has gotten me into trouble today. You see, I’ve had issues with my back since I was 20 years old. That’s a long time since I’m 54 today. I should have a regular routine by now to help me to support myself. I should have some really good habits in place. Alas, I don’t. I don’t give myself permission to care for myself. Conveniently, I forget to do my regular exercises that would keep my back strong and fit. These are simple and only take a few minutes a few times a day to do, but I still don’t do them regularly.

That’s my issue, what’s yours?! What are your excuses? How simple would it really be to do what you need to for yourself?

Self-care means different things to different people. None of them are simple if you’re the one that needs them. For me, drinking enough and more than enough water each day is simple. For so many, that’s the hardest thing they do all day. Too many of my clients aren’t enjoying themselves enough. Is this you too? For instance when they come to me for energy work or a reading and are on or at my table, their Spirit Guides will make sure that I tell them that they need to laugh more, or be with their friends more often, or get out of the house!

Are you  celebrating life? Your life is worthy of a grand celebration!! Don’t sell yourself short here. I know, it may sound selfish but it really isn’t! Get out there and have more fun.

Me? I need to make a commitment to myself. I know this because as I get older, my body likes to remind me of the commitment that I haven’t made more often. Please, if nothing else, listen to your body. Your body will always show signs of what is going on internally, mentally, and spiritually.

Loving Yourself

Again, it’s easy to say these “I will” statements but until we really learn to love ourselves, all the parts, our self-care suffers. Self-love and self-care really do go hand in hand. One feeds the other.

Now, get a massage, go for a hike, enjoy the beach, meditate, hang out with your friends, eat a marvelous meal, garden, and celebrate your life! You’re Worth It!

The previous 4 weeks of this session on The Stairs portion of The Map have allowed you to be aware of and decide on the persona you share with the world, acknowledge and support your inner child, accept and integrate the many facets of yourself, and forgive everything in your past.

These classes have resulted in major shifts in how you see yourself and your role in the world. Now it’s time to wrap up the work and allow it all to settle in so you have a renewed sense of self and feel fully empowered to take on your next stage in life.

Even if you have been doing your inner work on your own, this class is a great opportunity to see all of your efforts come together to reveal a whole new you!

Forgiveness. Metaphysical Playground Session 2: The Stairs. Class 4

Metaphysical Playground

Session 2: The Stairs

Class 4: FORGIVENESS
Taught by Andrea Kukulka


Forgiveness is a beautiful word. When we forgive someone it liberates us. It doesn’t matter what has happened between you and the person you forgive, what matters is the act of forgiveness itself. It doesn’t happen in just a moment. It’s a process. It’s a process because it takes more than a moment to settle into that new feeling within yourself. It’s not easy, there are many moving parts here. It’s even harder when the one you’re forgiving is yourself! 

In this class you will get to change the relationship you have with those parts of yourself that you’ve swept under the rug. You’ll take them out and shake them off. You’ll forgive yourself for the parts you’re not proud of, for the mistakes that you’ve made, for the loves lost and so much more. 

Andrea will help you to find that part of your heart that forgives. She’ll help you to shine a light on those sensitive parts so that you can forgive yourself! She’ll show you how to let your own heart do the work.

Focus: You’ve been through a lot in your life.  You may not be proud of all of it. This class will be centered on forgiving all of your past and recognizing it’s importance to who you are now.

Drawing with Spirit: Metaphysical Playground Session 1, Class 3

Join Kristi Johnston for a hands-on workshop on how to tune into Spirit and then become a conduit to bring colors, designs and images into reality and onto paper. You will have the opportunity to use several different kinds of tools to do this and no artistic ability is required.  There will be multiple meditations to facilitate this as well as a chance to watch Kristi draw a passed loved-one upside down and be involved in the process to get a feel for how it works for her.

Overwhelm and Anxiety

Feeling overwhelmed and anxious has been a recurring concern that we have noticed here at Center for Holistic Healing and Art, Mansfield MA over this past month. The holidays that happen at the end of the calendar year often mean time with- or without- family and friends which can result in anxiousness. The cause of the stress may be different, but the internal reaction can be quite similar: feeling the need to retreat, isolate or create barriers to more outside influence. This is a common problem no matter what age you are, for empaths and non-empaths alike.

For some people, at some times, this works fine- other times it doesn’t work as well. For those of you wishing for a different approach, we’d like to offer this alternative to closing yourself off and pulling away from the world and the physical body you inhabit.

Try this meditation: Focus your attention on one body part at a time and really feel the surfaces that are touching you- clothing, seat, floor. Notice the temperature of the air on your exposed skin, sense the darkness or light with your eyes closed. Now expand your awareness to your energy that is outside the confines of your body- your aura. Feel how large it is and what it passes through or comes to rest against. Now enjoy feeling yourself taking up all of this space, both physically and energetically. Stamp your feet and revel in your own solidity. Take a few deep, slow breaths with your hands on your hips and your feet spread wide as you become accustomed to this expanded way of being.

You are not hiding or retreating, you are taking up ALL of your real estate and you are entitled to it. From this place of confidence and self-awareness you can let love and compassion for others flow effortlessly out of you and towards everyone around you, without judgement or restriction. Practicing self-love and self-care in this way makes you more capable of helping others. It also makes you less likely to feel overwhelmed and more in control of your own emotions. This is not intended to dismiss or minimize the issues of anyone dealing with panic attacks, depression or severe anxiety disorder. It is instead aimed at those who are looking for a new tool to deal with situational anxiety. It is also a terrific way of realizing your power to effect change in the world by sending out love. This is an active endeavor that can decrease your sense of helplessness with all that is going on around the globe.

Here is a fantastic talk on standing in your power by Amy Cuddy

In love and Light,

Kristi, Amy and Andrea
