When I honor my needs…everything begins to feel good to me. No matter what is happening around me…if I put me first, everything will always reflect what I feel within – therefore by taking care of me, everything else is simply taken care of. A lot of us get caught up in the different experiences of life and forget this concept holds true for everything…relationships and love, career, health and even money.
Don’t get hung up on the teacher when the lesson is always the same. Don’t get tricked by the context of the situation when the one thing that holds true for all things is feeding yourself first. They tell you on an airplane before it even takes off that you need to put the oxygen mask on yourself FIRST before helping another passenger with theirs. Here’s another one…I can’t teach what I don’t practice first. I can’t teach clients anything until I know and understand how it all works. So I have to do it all for me FIRST before I show them how it’s done. How does it work if you’re pregnant…you must FEED yourself FIRST in order for the baby to get food. You can’t bypass you and go straight to baby…it simply doesn’t work that way. In order for that child to grow and be healthy and nourished, you must take care of you and I’ve never had a child but I must say that’s definitely the ultimate test.
Feeding you….all parts of you mentally, physically, emotionally and spiritually is important. This is something I struggled with for a long time…hence why I can teach it now. I’m a giver and it was just habit to put myself last. I’d put my needs and feelings behind everyone else’s but something inside of me was always craving something more. I’d put other’s first by nature but my spirit wanted to be put first. When I finally turned it around and started to really love me and honor my needs…things began falling into place. Sh*t just got taken care of when I worried less and fed myself more of what I needed. When you find something not working…ask what you need to give to you. It might be obvious…it might not but all you need to do is ask your soul what it needs and it’ll tell you. Feed it what it needs and desires and let everything else fall into place for you!
