When we were born onto this earth, and our souls took the form of a human body for the next 60-100 years, we also took on the responsibility of caring for our physical bodies. Because if we don’t we can’t survive.
We also, when we came into corporeal form took on the laws of our universe and one of the laws is the Law of Gender (or the Law of Polarity also works) and therefore each of us has both masculine and feminine energy in us.
We have the survival instinct…so yeah we gotta survive!
But on a larger scale, we were meant to live abundant lives. Our natural state is a state of abundance, where we’re thriving and giving and able to share our spirituality and our gifts & talents.
I mean let’s look at it through the lense of self-care which has a similar function.
I’m sure you’ve heard the phrase “put your own oxygen mask on before helping others,” why is this necessary? Because if you don’t you die!
Same thing with self-care, if you don’t take care of yourself you get burnt-out, crabby, helpless, and hopeless.
And hey! Same things with money! If you are constantly worried about how you’re going to pay for your next meal…then you won’t be able to show up and serve.
Money has a million functions in our lives..and those don’t necessarily have anything to do with being greedy or selfish, things like paying our bills, paying for healthcare, pet care etc.
And even things that could be considered slightly more “greedy” like getting a massage, or hiring someone to clean the house, or taking a vacation all have spiritual purposes. Self-care anyone?!?
Happiness ruts happen. We’ve all been there… One moment everything feels fine and the next you’re wallowing in a pit of despair. For example, you’re all caught up at work and your boss surprises you with a massive project. Goodbye evening yoga, hello long nights at the office. Try not to stress! Even if nothing is fundamentally wrong, humans are still prone to struggle mentally sometimes. Unfortunately, these lulls also have the potential to negatively impact creative work.
One of the most common complaints that I hear from spiritual entrepreneurs is that they are overwhelmed with social media.
In fact hardly a day goes by where I don't read the typical "I need a break from social media" post.
Hey I LOVE the fact that you take breaks when you need to.
In fact I would encourage it!
But I also want to offer you guys some tools to reduce the inevitable stress that us spiritual and empathic types can feel online.
Because it can be a BIG energy sucker to get online and share your heart and soul...or even just reading the millions of not-so-authentic posts that people put out.
The online world is like the real world but if the real world were like a city in the wild west 200 years ago...there are different rules...made-up rules.
People act differently...and it can be exhausting if you're the healer type...because there's a lot of wild energy! People selling, buying things, hiding behind their computers while they say horrible things....
It's an energy catalyst...and let's just say there's no shortage of strange fear energy out there.
That's why sometimes as sensitive beings it can be a bit overwhelming.
...and I had this overwhelming feeling of failure.
You see just two days ago, I embarked on a new stage in my blog.
One where I show up and get REALLY visible for 100 days.
It's part of my plan to boost up my income, and it is A LOT of work. I've set myself some really big challenges. It's had been going really well, for the past two days anyway, and today idk why but it just caught up with me.
Then I had the realization that I'm only 3 days into a 100 day plan...and that oh yeah! It's OK not to be seeing any results yet.
So that hit me, and then I was able to fall back on my old sense of perspective.
See I tend to get a little teensey bit dramatic...and that's because I'm such a detail oriented person that sometimes I miss the big picture.
See and being good with details is a gift! But it's easy for us detail-minded people to get lost in the fact that only two days have passed and my new blog plan isn't immediately making me any money. Lol...
Learning to access and balance the chakras changed the way I related to my body.
Suddenly I understood a lot more about how my energy flowed, and how to access my power.
It helped me to open up, to heal pain and trauma that had existed in my body for decades, and taught me to say what I need to say, to have strength, integrity, and to connect to the earth.
The chakra system is just a framework within which we get to explore how energy moves through our bodies. Truthfully there are more than just the seven commonly shown chakras...but for today were going to focus on those chakras that run up and down the body's energy channel/the spine.
I'll talk very briefly about what each chakra does, what it feels like when it's out of balance, and some essential oils that can help you return that chakra to balance once again.
Also I'm so excited to share what I got in the mail today!! My chakra rollers from Rocky Mountain Oils <3. They are amazing.
During the first year of my business I probably spent over 1000 hours working....with almost NOTHING to show for it. I was honestly at the giving up point.
I was thinking maybe it's just not possible for me...maybe I'm not doing it right...etc.
And then BOOM* something happened that would change the course of this blog and of my confidence in my ability to support myself...and oh yeah the infinite nature of our universe and it's constantly supply of mon-ay!!!!
