When recovering from an addiction or addictive behavior, it’s important to monitor times when we feel crappy, and do a check in regarding certain things: are we hungry? Angry? Lonely? Tired? Generally, these can contribute to us feeling out of sorts, depressed, and grumpy.
I’d like to add another two: Energy? And Dehydration? With the first, we could have negative and heavy energetic residue that we need to clear out. I kind of look at it as ‘brushing’ our auras, and removing yuck that might be stuck to us! There are different ways to do this, so do your research and try it out. The second has to do with the fact that so many people are chronically dehydrated nowadays, perhaps more than ever with the extreme heat occurring. Make sure you’re drinking enough water (and clean water, too)! Otherwise, we can be very irritable and feeling yucky.
Taking personal responsibility to care for our heath on the most basic levels is very important as well as necessary. Keep it up!
In my podcast today, I spoke a bit about the idea of our lives–and how we live them–to be our greatest works of art. There’s a quote from artist and writer Julia Cameron: “In a sense, as we are creative beings, our lives become our work of art.”
As we live our lives, some days will be better than others. Some days we will just feel crappier: more tired, depressed, anxious, etc. Ride ’em out–the next day is likely to be better. Remember to focus on what we can do to support ourselves in moving forward. This means keeping in mind that we are constantly creating our lives with our emotions, thoughts, and actions. How do you feel in your life? Continue to find healthy ways to de-stress and calm the mind. We are all in a time of feeling, dealing, and healing what no longer works in our lives, so let’s continue focusing on what we want!
In today’s podcast, I talk a bit about one of my great mentors who died from adrenal cancer a few years back. She lived her whole life with a deep wounding, feeling that her mother did not love her. I have met others who have felt this pain, feeling rejected from either parental figure, or both.
It is of utmost importance that this is healed, because I tell you with complete certainty that not only were you meant to be born, but you are also a child of God / Universal Energy AND ARE LOVED, AND DESERVE LOVE. You are worthy. You have gifts and talents to offer to the world, so get to it! This deep wounding only serves to cause deep instability on a soul level, and really, who can live their best life with that as a foundation?
I have a theory that the key to healing this pain is our connection with God / Universal Energy. It is truly what heals all wounds, and with it we need nothing else other than food, water, and shelter. It is this great Love that is like the Sun symbol in the tarot, filling us with healing light, health, happiness, abundance and prosperity! From there, everything else is extra goodness: our relationships with others, how we move and interact in our personal spheres, etc.!
So strengthen your self-love today: listen to my podcast from this date to learn more about how!
