Be self-responsible, own your life, do your own homework:
The path of recovery demands that we take full responsibility for our own body, health and life.
People often expect others (doctors, healers, teachers or coaches) to do all the work for them. It is important to understand that you alone are responsible for your health and for your own healing. Those who continue to blame others can't find long lasting healing. All spiritual teachings are precious, but some people on the spiritual path seem to look for a faster way. They hope it is possible to skip certain learning steps. Doctors and teachers can help for certain things, but you always have to do your own part of the work too. Your path of awakening and healing is between you and your own Divine Guidance. It is about your relationship with your own Divine Source. You must be willing to take really good care of that relationship, with honest devotion from your heart, with prayers and meditations. This is your task and your responsability. Nobody else can do that for you.
Here are a few serious points to consider in your daily life:
Are you the kind of person who is always helping others, but you never ask others for help? Some people are great "givers", but they struggle asking for help. You have the right to receive as much help in return, as you are helping others. To avoid a burn-out, you may start asking for help for yourself and for your goals, in all areas of your life. Every morning, take the time to prepare your day and decide what it is that YOU really need. Learn to make your own wellbeing a priority. Write these things down during three weeks, and observe how you feel.
You can learn to set new and healthier boundaries. You don't have to be always available for others 24/7. Try to turn off your phone more often, so you really get more time to rest. Plus, if you say "no" sometimes when others ask for your help, you will have more free time for yourself.
When was the last time you ....
If you are chronically feeling tired and exhausted, then ask your doctor to do a complete medical check-up. For example, a lack of ferritine can be one of the reasons why you feel so exhausted, and it can be more serious. Please do a complete check-up and tests with your doctor in the medical center; always take good care of your health.
Every app on your phone demands your time and your energy
How many apps do we really need? People no longer own apps, but those apps own the people, they own their energy and their time.
Does my toothbrush really need an app? I laughed when I bought my last toothbrush. And no, I did not download that app. Seriously…
A first step towards more free time and inner peace is to delete some apps. Too many people are even not aware of how much time of their days all their apps consume.
Following others on social media channels – who, why and what?
The daily amounts of unnecessary information such as gossip is consuming your energy more than you are aware of. Serious: Your energy is where your focus is. If you focus for hours on gossip and drama-stories, this builds up a momentum of energy in your aura, which directly effects your mental health. Begin to be more careful about what you read and watch online: are the news you read and listen good, positive and make you feel optimistic? Or are you waisting your precious time reading only bad news that create again more fears and stress within you?
Make serious changes: take control and become very selective on who you follow, what you read and watch online. Choose more peaceful, harmonious and positive channels, with uplifting messages, in order to feel better.
Writing for hours in online chats?
People spend hours writing in those chats, but are those real conversations? or is it again only superficial gossip? At the end of the conversation, do you feel better, or worse?
A fun way to stop this, is to ask the other person: what exactly is your intention and the goal of this conversation? Then, ask yourself: do you really want to be a part of that conversation?
You know, there is a difference in the quality. It may help avoiding chats/conversations where people tend to complain and gossip all the time about others. Surround yourself with loving people who support you, if you like to raise the vibration of your own energy fields.
Radical changes sometimes really help:
Make new habits: if we really want to change certain things in our life, then we must change our habits. We can do this by simply trying out new habits. How about choosing certain hours per day when we turn our phones and all computers off ... ? How does that feel? If it feels good, if you feel relieved, then continue with it :-)
Please remember that you are a lot more than your physical body. Not only you have a Soul, actually you are that Soul. You are a divine being of love and light, a wonderful Soul. Your true goal is to become aware of your divine Soul and your Oneness with Divine Source. Allow yourself to remember now more of that eternal divine part of who you really are, that beautiful Soul. And the more you find your inner alignment with your own Soul, the better you feel, the more peaceful you become. You become whole again through this. This is what you are longing and looking for: your Oneness with your Divine Soul, because this divine Love is your natural state of being.
