Our card for today, Monday, May 14th, is taken from the Messages from Your Angels Oracle Cards – Bethany – “When you take excellent care of yourself, everybody benefits. Give yourself a relaxing treat today, such as a massage, sea salt bath, or pedicure.”
Most of us as Lightworkers are also Empaths. That means that we feel other’s emotions; and when we feel sadness or despair, or if someone is in pain, it is our tendency to want to help. Most of us tend to help out those in need, be it families, friends, neighbors, and even strangers, so we give and give and give to the point of depleting our own inner resources. We become physically, emotionally, and mentally exhausted as we deplete our own energy helping others. However if we continue to do so without first taking the time to care for ourselves and our own needs, then we burn out and have nothing left to give to anyone who needs us.
This is why it is so important to take care of ourselves by making sure we get enough sleep, eat a healthy diet and get some exercise, and of course spend time in nature. It also helps to take the time for the small things like taking a salt bath to detox our bodies and our energy fields. Anything that we do just for ourselves helps to replenish our own energy physically and mentally so that we can then in turn help others who need us. It’s not being selfish to do these things, to take care of ourselves, it’s a necessity, or we ourselves will end up sick or in pain, physically, emotionally or mentally. Remember you can’t pour from an empty cup!
Have a great day everyone! ~Namaste~
Love & Light,
Carolyn & My Spirit Team
