Quotes That Make My Soul Sing #18

“If you catch yourself in the track of fear, just by having that awareness, you can shift your attention into the track of love.”

Don Miguel Ruiz, The Mastery of Love

I love how this works! Just bringing attention to my stories wrapped in fear help me to shift out of them. I’ve been catching myself more and more and the results are amazing. My relationships with the people I love have become so much stronger. It’s the fearful stories playing in my head that get in my way of living my best life. Fearful thoughts are a part of this journey, it’s what we do with them that matters. Being able to spot them and move away from them is a gift that keeps on giving.

With Love and Gratitude,

Daily Aligning with Love, Abundance, and Peace #355

I’m grateful for the opportunity to expand my capacity to love. Moment to moment, I can choose to be in this space. I’m overwhelmed when I think about the fact there is always more room to love, especially after I became conscious of what love was and wasn’t. When I’m fully aligned with the energy of love, abundance, and peace, my capacity to love and be loved has NO limits. The more I recognize the love within myself, the more I open up to love and to be loved by others. My heart feels full just typing these words.

Living from a loving place is a journey I’ve been on since 2016. It’s not always pretty, but it’s all about being the love in the world that I want to see more of. Living from love or fear is a choice I make with every breath—unconscious or conscious.

Today, I commit to taking action to expand my capacity to love. When I love myself wholeheartedly, I have a brighter light to shine out to the world. Being self-critical and not facing the unhealed past can limit my ability to give and receive authentic love. The unhealed parts can taint love with fear. I have to do the work in order to expand my capacity to love, and a part of that is showing myself the love and respect that I deserve.

I make actions choices to show myself love while also making choices to give and receive love to and from others. The beauty of taking action to show myself love means that I don’t put expectations on others to do what I’m not willing to do for myself. Loving myself in action creates natural boundaries, almost like a light force field around me. Having this helps me take those steps to give and receive authentic love in action. It also helps me to stay out of the old stories that creep up, which are aligned with the energy of fear, lack, and separation.

Taking action to expand my capacity to love is not about an expectation to receive something back for what I do. If my actions are fully aligned with love, I will attract love back to me, but that doesn’t mean it will come from where I think it will. I will know if I’m aligned with the energy of love, abundance, and peace by the stories that are playing in my head about myself and others.

When I’m at the height of feeling the energy of love, abundance, and peace inside me (what I recognize as the state of AWE), I send loving energy out to people I love, trees, animals, etc. It’s my way of giving unconditional love to the world. I see it as putting out the energy I want to see more of in the world.

With Love, Abundance, and Peace,

Daily Aligning with Love, Abundance, and Peace #323

I’m grateful I KNOW love. I wasn’t always able to say this. I used to have a VERY warped definition of love, which is why I’ve written a lot about the importance of defining love since I started From A Loving Place in 2016. Defining love was the biggest awakening moment of my journey. The core of everything I want to project in this world is from love. I’m not perfect at it, but I do the work to align with energy of love. The sum of the three—love, abundance, and peace is ONE love. That love is the purest form of love that exists. Knowing love is the greatest gift of being alive.

Knowing love is the beginning. Being love, being in the knowing of love, and simply BEING is what some people call heaven on Earth. When I get caught up in the doing, I can forget to BE. Being is where I FEEL everything. Being is where the state of AWE is. I don’t get to experience the AWE until I stop and appreciate. It’s in those beautiful moments then time stops and an overwhelming feeling of pure love moves through me. The longer I sit in my breath and just allow myself to embrace the feeling of love, the more it expands.

The love is so powerful that it projects out in the most beautiful ways. When I experience love from the place of KNOWING and BEING, I have the most to offer the people around me. Any BUT attached to love is not love at all, that BUT is an alignment with fear, lack, and separation. In the KNOWING, there are no BUTS.

I remember confusing love when I was in a verbally and emotionally abusive relationship. My confusion with love didn’t start there. Just like it does for most people, it started in my childhood. Childhood is where we begin learning from the place of blame, shame, and guilt. This is where many children start mixing up what is love and what is fear. The messages we take inward and our self-talk becomes filled with a mixed message of what love really is. For me, I became aligned with the energy of fear, lack, and separation and thought it was love. This became a path of self-destruction.

I’m not blaming anyone for this, because there are very few, if any, cultures that don’t use fear, guilt, and/or shame as a parenting, learning, and guiding tool—It’s embedded. Becoming aware of my own messages that pull me away from the energy of love, abundance, and peace is the key to not letting the fear, lack, and separation reign control over my life. Being in a toxic relationship helped me to see how my own alignment with the energy of fear, lack, and separation manifested itself into a toxic relationship. When I embraced the KNOWING of love, I stopped lending myself to relationships that didn’t embody love. I was no longer attracting those relationships because I knew what it looked like to love myself and from there, I didn’t take in someone else’s alignment with fear, lack, and separation as my own.

Like everyone else I know, I’ve been caught using these methods from time to time. I’ve been in situations where I used fear, guilt, and/or shame unintentionally. It can be challenging to not react from that place, when that place is familiar. The best I can do for myself and others is recognize when I’m coming from a place of love, and when I’m coming from a place of fear. That way when I find a more loving perspective, I can go back and let the people I know what I’ve discovered about my reaction. NONE of us are perfect and when I judge others for not being perfect, that is once again my own alignment with fear, lack, and separation. It does however come with lots of opportunities to become aware of how I’ve strayed from the energy of love, abundance, and peace and how to shift beliefs, thoughts, feelings, and actions according to my KNOWING of what love is.

Today, I commit to BE in the KNOWING of love. BEING in the knowing is much different than just knowing. I can know love as I write this piece and as I move throughout my day. BEING requires me to stop the doing and just BE in the moment where I experience the KNOWING of love. I like to begin in the relationships where there is no confusing fear and love. For me, that’s nature. Everyone is going to have their own places to begin, but I like to begin with non-human relationships, since in human relationships my alignment with fear, lack, and separation can unconsciously slip in. Next, I focus on BEING in the KNOWING of the love for myself, because I KNOW the amount of love I project out is based on the amount of love I’m able to KNOW within. BEING in this love emanates out to everything the energy reaches. If I don’t feel the absolute AWE of BEING in this love, it’s because the energy of fear, lack, and separation has snuck in and that will leak out into all my relationships including my spiritual ones.

I can’t change anyone else. I can change myself. I can change the energy I align with moment to moment. Each moment offers a new opportunity to do things differently. There is no need for regret, that is the place where fear wants me to live. If I take something away from the times I chose fear over love, lack over abundance, and separation over peace, I’m better for it. I’ve grown from the experiences. Those experiences give me the gift of compassion and empathy for what others are experiencing. They also help me determine the energy I want to consciously surround my life in. BEING in the KNOWING of love helps me see things, people, and my relationships clearly.

It’s in the BEING that I’ve decided to let some relationships fade out of my life and others flourish. In the state of BEING, I know my worth and respect my time. I don’t have to judge where someone else is, I just have pay attention to where I am and what I need to do to stay aligned with the energy of love, abundance, and peace. Anyone who leaves my life, I send off with a blessing and trust that if they come back into my life it’s because our energies are aligning.

BEING in the KNOWING of love is a VERY peaceful place. If I don’t feel peaceful, I’m not there. I will often write a question out as a prayer for assistance, “What is keeping me from BEING in the Knowing of love?” The answer reveals itself as long as I stay open to receive it. If I’m feeling a little blocked, I ask a question like, “Can you please be crystal clear in your response, so that I don’t miss what I need to see to move through my blocks?”

If you’ve been reading along, you may notice that a word I mention in one post becomes a topic in the next or a subject is built on for the next few days or weeks. All of this goes together and without understanding one area, I couldn’t see the full value of the other. My perspectives are forever expanding and building on each other. The one thing I never change is that love is at the core of EVERYTHING that I want both inside and outside. I am my life partner and it’s my job to show myself the love, respect, loyalty, and compassion that I deserve. If I don’t show myself that love, how will I recognize that love outside of me? We only ever can know a feeling that we already have experienced inside of us. I’m the best place to start when it comes to not confusing love with fear. That way what I’m projecting out is clear, so what I attract back will be a reflection of that love. If that isn’t a good reason to BE in the KNOWING of love, I don’t know what is! The better I KNOW love and can experiencing the BEING of it, the more love I have to offer the world around me. I ask myself, “How amazing would it be to know that I’m projecting pure love out to the world?” I love BEING in that moment of thought. Tears gather in the corners of my eyes. I feel complete peace and AWE.

With Love, Abundance, and Peace,

Daily Aligning with Love, Abundance, and Peace #297

I’m grateful for the symbolic meanings of hearts. If there was ever a symbol to remind me to love and be loved, it’s the heart. I’ve given and received countless heart cards and presents over the years. I’ve drawn, cut-out, painted, colored, and applied countless hearts to everything from doodles to art projects. I put hearts on letters, texts, and social media posts. I love that I see hearts in nature both in plant-life and wildlife. Hearts are everywhere when I put my focus on seeing them—the same goes for love.

Beyond love, the heart is key to our very being. The better our hearts function, the better we function. They are our connection to life itself. If our hearts don’t work, neither do our vessels for this life. As I think about all the physical functions of the heart, I see why love is so important for it’s flow and function. When we love ourselves, we take care of our vessels for life. We honor them as the temples that they are. Hearts need good foods, exercise, water, and energy to function at their best. When I love myself, I do these things naturally because I can intuitively hear what my bodies asking for.

I remember both times when I was pregnant, I was filled with so much love for the unborn lives living inside me that I took better care of my body than I had since I could remember. I didn’t realize it at the time, but once my babies were out of me and no longer dependent on my body for food outside of me, I started letting my care for myself slip, but it wasn’t long after my second child stopped nursing that I REALLY saw that I was not being a good example for them if I was not taking care of myself, and I was letting others mistreat me. I was unconsciously showing them patterns of beliefs and behaviors that would cause them pain as they got older. When that awakening began, I looked up the definition of love. From that point on, I began doing the work to take care of my vessel—body, mind, and soul. From that point on my heart function physically, emotionally, and energetically became more important than ever. That is when I started to planting the seeds to create the internal garden of my dreams. It all began with honoring the call of my heart to love.

Hearts carry so many symbolic meanings for me. The strength of who I am relies on the function of my heart. Hearts are a reminder for me to take care of my body, mind, and soul. The more I show my heart love and respect, the better everything works inside of me, which in-turn projects out of me and then is attracted back. Therefore, when I’m better, the reality I create is better. When I take care of my heart, I feel my intuition flow like the blood in my veins. I’m in AWE just thinking about everything the heart represents.

Today, I commit to embracing the symbolic meanings of hearts. There are countless ways to take on this commit, but for me it all begins with self-care. I have learned when I put my own oxygen mask on first, I have the ability to serve others from a loving place instead of a place of lack. There is a big difference! One place expands me and the other depletes me. The stories that play in my head are my sign posts to tell me if I’m serving from a place of lack or love. I have to do work to live in the energy of love, abundance, and peace or fear, lack, and separation. Here’s my plan to embrace the heart today:

  • Drink plenty of water
  • Eat heart healthy foods
  • Walk (10,000 steps min.) and stretch to exercise my heart
  • Meditate
  • Read a book that inspires me to love more
  • Watch shows and/or videos that inspire me to love more
  • Align myself with love, abundance, and peace by writing about things that inspire me
  • Engage in loving actions with anyone I encounter
  • Speak only love on social media
  • Speak only love out in the world

Daily Aligning with Love, Abundance, and Peace #244

I’m grateful for Divine connections. I love when I meet someone and in one meeting it’s feels like our souls have known each other for eternity. I can even have a virtual exchange with someone via video or simply a comment exchange and know there is a Divine connection. This is the absolute beauty of energy. It knows no space and time. If a person is meant to be in my life, it doesn’t matter how far away they physically are from me, we will connect. There is such peace in that knowing.

Divine connections have played such a HUGE role in my life. Some people have come in for a single conversation and others have stayed in my life for decades. My oldest friend and I met when we were four years old. We have both moved around throughout the years. We went one long stretch without talking in early adulthood, then were brought back together again. I just talked to her the other day. My partner and I met in 5th grade. We never dated earlier on, but BOY did I have a crush in 5th grade. We reconnected via Facebook, but it would be at least another year before we would have an exchange that set everything into motion. We’re now going on seven years. We wouldn’t have been ready for each other a second sooner than the time we got together, which goes back to the topic I talked about a couple days ago—Divine timing. I have so many stories of childhood friends who have come in and out of my life, along with people brought in to teach me some very important lessons about myself. Since the pandemic the Universe opened wide up with virtual Divine connections.

Even the Divine connections that are brought in to teach me some challenging lessons about myself are beautiful blessings. Each person has helped me to strip away all the things that block me from being the person I was born to be. I wouldn’t have the perspectives in life that I do now if all these Divine connections didn’t happen in Divine timing. I believe every thought we have is a prayer to the Universe. Many of those prayers are answered through these Divine connections in Divine timing. If I really want to know the answer, I have to be open enough to hear it. I remember some of the prayers I would say when I was in a verbal, mental, and emotional abusive relationship, but for a long time I wasn’t open enough to see and hear the answers. I was too focused on what I couldn’t change that I wasn’t able to see what I could change. Saying the Serenity Prayer truly helped me be willing to see the Divine connections and how they were working in my life.

Today, I commit to celebrating my Divine connections. Each energy exchange I have with another person is a true blessing. If the energy connection is aligned with fear, lack, and separation, the person shows me how I’m connecting to that energy. If I’m reacting from a place of fear, lack, and separation, that is not the other person’s fault. I have to go within and ask:

  • Why I’m choosing to connect there?
  • What inside of me feels fearful about this exchange?
  • Is a feeling of lack being triggered by this exchange?
  • Why am I feeling separate from this human in front of me?
  • What makes me feel different, better, or less than the person I’m having the exchange with?
  • How is this exchange benefitting anyone in this energy?
  • How do I move my energy back to love, abundance, and peace?
  • What prayer can I say for the person I’m having the exchange with that will help me align my energy with love, abundance, and peace?

One thing I’ve learned to do is thank God for showing me _______________ through the Divine connection I’ve had with a person. A long time ago, I learned to see people as my mirrors. It’s not about what they do or how they act, it’s about how I respond and/or react. I am not responsible and accountable for them, but I am for me. Divine connections don’t just show me what I need to work on, they show me the things I absolutely LOVE about how I choose the view the world and people in it. I have so many amazing loving exchanges that exude love, abundance, and peace. Did you miss the Wisdom panel I just did? All those relationships in the panel were born out of Divine connections. I knew whoever was meant to be there would, just like I know whoever is meant to see it would or will. We have to be drawn into the energy to connect with it. I knew every person that was there that day and I have connections with each of them. The room was filled with such love that I felt it throughout the whole panel, I tapped into the best parts about my humanity from being in that room, at that time, with those women, from the participants to the observers.

The wonderful thing is that since that meeting, multiple new connections have been made to help serve each other. That the amazing thing about seeing the world through this lens, I get to see connection after connection after connection. My heart is so full just at the thought, if you’ve been connecting with me through these posts, you probably know my eyes are full of tears right now. I’m truly overflowing. There are a handful of people who I know read these posts regularly. They comment here, on my Facebook page, or send me personal exchanges via text or email, each of those connections is a Divine connection that I appreciate wholeheartedly. I smile ear to ear anytime I see one of your names pop-up on my screen.

When I became open to see Divine connections, I started seeing them EVERYWHERE! It has helped me understand that others have to take their journeys through this too, whether they see it the way I do or not. If I believe that Divine connections work in my life the way they do, I have to trust they are working in other people’s lives the same way. Believing in Divine Connections aligns me with the energy of love, abundance, and peace which is why I’ve chosen to believe in this perspective of truth. I’m a better friend to others because of this belief too. It has helped me not insist that I know what is best for someone else’s life. I know a person has the Divine connections they are meant to have. If a friend asks, I will share my experience and ask them a lot of questions. These questions are to help them figure out their path. I don’t get attached to if someone does what I suggest or not, because that is not my journey. I know I had to go through excruciatingly tough things to get to where I am now. Me insisting that I know what is best for someone else’s life is my ego, which comes from the energy of fear, lack, and separation. This doesn’t mean I don’t catch myself in this energy if I’m worried about the people that I love, but it doesn’t change the fact that my energy is in fear, lack, and separation. I can’t justify my energy, it is in fear, lack, and separation or love, abundance, and peace. It won’t change until I change my perspectives of thought. Divine connections definitely help to keep me accountable for where my energy is. My kids have so much to offer me with that one. I will talk more about that tomorrow.

With Love, Abundance, and Peace,

Daily Aligning with Love, Abundance, and Peace #230

I’m grateful I authentically love myself. This took me a VERY long time to get to. I can look in the mirror without self-abusing. I can say no and KNOW that I have healthy boundaries because I love myself. I can love someone else without taking on their feelings of guilt, shame, fear, lack, and separation. I can disagree with someone else and not slide into the energy of fear, lack, and separation. I can do all these things because I authentically love myself. I know that the one person I am responsible and accountable for is me and that I’m going to project out to the world whatever I feel most inside me, I want that to be love.

I didn’t even recognize the definition of love until I was open enough to see that my definition of love was laced with fear, lack, and separation, which is anything but love. Learning how to love myself was an essential piece of being able to live life from a loving place. Loving myself helped me to love others in a way I NEVER knew before. I am able to see people and circumstances in a way that I’ve never been able to see before I knew this love.

I love that I can tell when and when I’m not treating MYSELF with love and respect. When I used to treat myself like I wasn’t worthy of love, respect, time, compassion, and empathy, I would accept others treating me like I wasn’t worthy of it. I would fight for others to love and respect me. I would fight for people to give me their time, compassion, and empathy. I was expecting others to give me what I wasn’t giving myself—that’s not love.

I am who I am, and I love who I am. I choose my reality by the energy I align with to create it. I choose to create my reality with love at the core. I choose to project the love I have for myself out to the world as much as I can. I choose to work through my energy of fear, lack, and separation as it comes up, because it will. I will learn and grow from my shadow, because I love myself enough to embrace all of me both shadow and light.

Today, I commit to showing myself the love I deserve. It’s not enough to say that I love myself. I authentically love myself when I am willing to do the work. My actions speak louder than words. One of the techniques I use is to think about the expectations I have of others to show me they love me. Then, I take that list and can see all the ways I’m neglecting to show myself the love I deserve. I look at my list and anything that I’m expecting someone else to do that I don’t do for myself is what I need to work on to give myself the love I deserve. The more focused I am on what others aren’t doing for me or how they aren’t appreciating what I am doing is how I’ve come to determine when I’m not SHOWING myself enough love. Here’s a sample of how I’ve learned to show myself the love I deserve:

  1. I will show myself the love I deserve by MAKING the time to take care of my needs.
  2. I will show myself the love I deserve by ENJOYING my time with others.
  3. I will show myself the love I deserve by not expecting others to be who they are not.
  4. I will show myself the love I deserve by drinking plenty of water.
  5. I will show myself the love I deserve by taking time to stretch.
  6. I will show myself the love I deserve by giving love to others.
  7. I will show myself the love I deserve by treating myself like a life partner I want to live with.
  8. I will show myself the love I deserve by sitting outside and enjoying the peace and quiet (quality time).
  9. I will show myself the love I deserve by establishing healthy boundaries with others.
  10. I will show myself the love I deserve by serving other from a loving place (not a place to gain worth or get something back).

We all deserve to be the best life partners we can be to ourselves. The healthier the relationship we have with ourselves, the healthier the relationships we have with others.

With Love, Abundance, and Peace,

Daily Aligning with Love, Abundance, and Peace #206

I’m grateful for the love I feel when I treat my body respectfully. This one took me a lot of time to figure out. I went through years of abusing my body with poor choices. I still neglect her from time to time. When I’m showing her the love and respect that she deserves, I feel a love that permeates into everything I say, do, and think. If you have been keeping up with the daily posts, you saw the last two days were about exercise and walking (click for links) for the benefits of how doing them makes me feel. These last two days is what led me here today. As I started treating my body better, I starting feeling the love for my body more clearly. I started noticing all the things my body can do. Treating my body with respect made me want to show it even more love by what I was eating and drinking. This isn’t a forced feeling like a diet. It’s a love feeling. I’m taking care of something that I love.This was just the reminder I needed to make me want to make sure that I’m showing my body respect DAILY!

Today, I commit to respecting my body. As I finished the last sentence, I picked up my water bottle. Drinking water is showing my body respect. My body needs water. When I don’t give her enough water, I’m neglecting her. As I’m writing this post so many thoughts are flowing into my head of things I can do to show my body respect today. Here are some in no particular order:

  • Stretching
  • Walking
  • Core Strengthening exercises
  • Eating healthy
  • Drinking water
  • Dancing
  • Tapping (EFT)—to work through stress
  • Meditating
  • Epsom Salt bath
  • Massage
  • Heating or icepack when needed
  • Supplements
  • Smoothies with added ginger root, cinnamon, and honey
  • Movement breaks throughout the day
  • Not doing things that have a negative effects on my organs/health
  • Chakra work
  • Plenty of sleep

These are just initial thoughts of things I can do. It doesn’t mean I will do them all. I just know the more respect I show my body, the better I feel. The better I feel, the better I treat myself. The better I treat myself, the better I treat others. The better I treat others, the faster the world changes in a positive direction… these are patterns of thoughts and behaviors I can get behind! These are the things that keep me aligned with the energy of love, abundance, and peace.

With Love, Abundance, and Peace,

Daily Aligning with Love, Abundance, and Peace #199

I’m grateful there is no ONE right way. When I opened myself up to see in perspectives. I discovered my way is not the ONLY way. Some of you might be thinking, well duh. For me, I needed to REALLY look at this one and not just when it was comfortable to do so. I used to beat myself up for not doing things RIGHT. I realized that sometimes what is more important than doing things RIGHT is making sure my energy is aligned with love, abundance, and peace over fear, lack, and separation. When I remind myself there is no ONE right way, I feel at peace. It takes the pressure off and reminds me to focus on what does matter—Aligning with the energy I want to see more of in the world.

Today, I commit to seeing opportunities to grow in my perspectives. Being aligned with love, abundance, and peace helps me live in the faith that no matter how things turn out, If I’m aligned I do what is RIGHT for the moment I am in. Some other people are going to look at things differently than I do. They need to do what is right for them in the moment they are in. That is not my business to judge that. I can get curious to try to understand where someone else is coming from. If I find myself judging someone, I need to ask myself: Where is my energy aligning? Being open gives me opportunities to grow.

When I’m aligning with fear, lack, and separation I don’t ever feel secure that I’m doing what is RIGHT. I live in a constant questioning and I get very wishy-washy. My thoughts can go towards a revenge mentality, which feels AWEFUL! My stomach gets all tied in knots and I often leave the situation wishing I did or said something other than what I did.

When I’m aligning with love, abundance, and peace I have this inner knowing that the decision I’m making is right in this moment. Here’s the thing though, as long as I’m aligned with love, abundance, and peace I can make a variety of different decisions and the the people around me can make decisions and I still stay centered knowing it will all work out and be okay. The situation can be a challenging one and even if I’m working to figure out what to do, I feel calm and peaceful while taking big breaths to gain clarity.

A game I like to play with myself is to find other ways people handle specific challenges. Instead of thinking of people as right and wrong, I will simply see things in the perspective of they are doing what is right for them in this moment. Then I watch how just thinking that thought affects me. I’m happy to say, every time I do it, I feel fully aligned with the energy of love, abundance and peace.

With Love, Abundance, and Peace,

Daily Aligning with Love, Abundance, and Peace #198

I’m grateful for my perspectives that encourage self-care. I know that living life as my healthiest self takes work. Just like it takes work to live as the sickest version of myself. Self-care is an act of love to myself. When I’m taking care of myself, I am a better partner, friend, daughter, mother, sister, and community member. I’ve learned how important it is to give myself the love that I deserve. I don’t expect others to give what I don’t give to myself. Self-care helps me set healthy boundaries with others. My perspectives on self-care are a great reminder that self-care makes me a better human. I’m not as irritable, reactive, worried, or stressed. The people in my life get the best of me and my healthy mindset keeps me stay aligned with love, abundance, and peace for longer time periods. I can feel it when I stop doing what works. I’m so grateful to be able to to know what does work to get me out of any darkness. I just have to choose to take care of myself. Self-care helps me to get out of my own way.

Today, I commit to looking at my perspectives that encourage self-care. Self-care takes commitment. If we want to operate from our healthiest place for the people in our lives, we have to do the work to hold ourselves responsible and accountable for what is going on inside of us. My self-care means I’m going to be more loving, patient, compassionate, kind, empathetic, happy, connected, etc. Self-care is my path to aligning with the energy of of love, abundance, and peace. Like I talked about last week, we have to know love and peace from the inside in order to recognize it in the world around us. We have to live gratitude to know abundance. How much time are we going to give ourselves to ground and center ourselves?

Self-care is not selfish or self-seeking. Self-care is a way that we can be responsible and accountable for the energy we are putting out in the world. If we are not paying attention to that, we can get sucked into the abyss of fear, lack, and separation. That is what is self-seeking. When we are lost in our own abyss, we do more damage to the people around us. We start unconsciously spreading fear, lack, and separation. We become prime targets to believe in conspiracy theories and engage in cult activities. We can only succumb to these things if we aren’t conscious of where we attach to the energies of fear, lack, and separation.

Self-care is about committing to aligning with the energy we want to see more of in the world. We have to live it inside us first before we can amplify this energy around us. These are just some of my perspectives that encourage my self-care. These are the things I tell myself so that I MAKE time! As many of you know, I love writing letters from a better me. These are my commitments to myself. The video below is one of my letters of commitment. You can see the written version if you click on the word here. My book is filled with many of the letters that I used to nurse myself back to a healthy mindsets.
