Most do not realize that our degree of self-care and self-love manifests as a reflection from the outside world and its interactions. How others treat us is how we treat ourselves. In understanding that, we can approach life from the viewpoint, ‘I am the only one here, and everything outside of me is showing up to reveal more of me to me.’ When we do so, we not only care for the self, we care for ‘all’ of the self.
What if you really are the only one here and everyone, everything, every experience simply appears for the sake of allowing you to live better, love better and expand into the truth that you are? What if ‘all of life’ is conspiring on your behalf ‘in you, as you, for you, and it is always only good?’
I approach self-care at the following levels: Personal, Well-Being, Social, Creative Expression, Community and Financial. How I handle and care for myself will reflect in every sphere of my life so I am conscious of that care in all places. I inquire within contemplation ‘how’ I am doing and being through these inquiries:
• Am I honoring my voice and expression in the words, thoughts, and actions present in this experience, challenge and opportunity?
• Am I loving my physical being and my inner child with my response to what life is offering and asking of me now?
• Am I listening to what my soul is deeply calling and longing for in this experience?
• Am I witnessing each moment as a celebration of my being, in its shadow and its Light?
We mistakenly approach self-care from the perspective of the human body, and all of our needs, wants, desires and deficiencies. In seeing self-care from the perspective of the ‘Divine Self’ or ‘Highest Potential Self’, we would not only attempt to take care of ourselves, but actually do so because the soul is unconditionally loving presence that is witness to the sacredness we are. Self-care from these eyes sees the loving essence that is, and nurtures that loving essence in the most beautiful and present of ways.
