I have the perfect prescription for all my woes… DAILY things I need to do to be grounded and centered: Conscious Breathing. Meditation. Reiki. Adequate Exercise. Staying Hydrated. Clean Eating. Chakra Balancing. Yoga. When my mind goes out of control, I’m
punishing neglecting myself in some way. I finally recognize the pattern. It seems simple, but I’m still having a hard time. Taking care of myself is not the norm for me. I always put myself last and others were always the priority. (If I keep them “happy” then they won’t leave me and they will always be nice to me, right? HA! the BIG lie that I believed for so long.) My spirituality and health is everything!!!! But it takes time away from other things, like my relationships… so I feel selfish. How can I always put myself first? But I go downhill fast if I don’t. I’m so used to drowning in negative emotions as a first response to anything, that I forget that there are easy grounding techniques I can do other than just stewing in my self-pity soup. But it isn’t automatic yet and I still resist. But with perseverance, taking small steps, and being gentle with myself through this process, I will always go back to and follow my daily prescription… until it naturally becomes a way of life…
I have also been super duper cranky because I have not blogged or taken photos or baked any bread. My creative outlets are just as important. Incidentally, since I started Reiki, I find it really hard to write anything coherent or relevant and I’m still afraid of judgement. But if I don’t start blogging again, my head will surely pop off. And I miss my blog world family!!
