Listening within takes a lot of commitment, patience, inner-sight and willingness.
I find it a good challenge to stay the course of my needs and plan to make time for myself as a mother, wife, woman and healer. What I am beginning to realize at deeper levels is that without the attention to self, without the healing time and space to put myself first, the rest is functioning at lower levels of frequency.
My patience as a mother starts to deflate and dwindle when I don’t get some time to be Ashley and exercise or process my inner workings. I am energy after all and without the outlets to release, process or transform, it gets distributed around the home and outwardly in my life. Therefore making more to deal with in the end.
As my kids are sensitive energetic beings, like they all are. They get taken on the wild wagon rides along with me some days. Recognizing my need for a break or self care, brings in new energy for them and a patient mother to navigate all that my role entales.
As a wife, I can easily fall into resentments, anger, guilt and therefore making my needs increase even more. If I let it go too long, I’ve got a bigger problem than what I started with. So honest communication, special time together and self respect bring balance to the ups and downs that we experience together.
As a woman, when I procrastinate, tough it out, push through, avoid the need of self care or some down time, it continues to build. This build up then gives me more of a task of healing myself or bringing back to balance, than if I listen along the way and took small steps in my self care.
How many of you are living in auto pilot? Toughing it out each day, struggling to find the balance?
How many of you forget about yourself and take care of everyone else?
It feels horrible some days.
How many of you build up until you can’t take it anymore? T
here we are, SNAP!
Is this truly necessary? Have we become so accustom to DOING so much for everyone that we struggle to STOP and SLOW DOWN and SELF CARE?
I believe you have desires that will shift this old way of being.
Taking my own life into account and letting go of all that I can’t control in another person's life truly helps. We are here to help others and it can be very rewarding and positive.
Think for a moment, when you get on a plane, the flight attendants tell you when you are going to crash, put on your own mask first before helping another. Why? Because you are no good to anyone if you don’t help yourself first.
Allow yourself to listen within.
Give yourself the chance to have your needs to be heard and met.
Trust that when you feed yourself physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually you will become an unstoppable force.
So start each day with gratitude, self love and share your gifts with the world!
SO MUCH LOVE!!
Woman, Wife, Mother and Intuitive. Consciously evolving with all of nature and humanity.
