Divine Self Care

It is that time of year everyone!  It is time for reflection on this past year and anticipation of the New Year to come!

I don’t know about you, but my year is ending on a very busy note and I don’t think it will slow down anytime soon.  Therefore, I know it is time to ensure I take care of my mind, body and soul.  I need to ensure I nurture myself.  I need to be careful to watch what I eat (not to be carefree about the weight and just worry about it sometime in the new year) and of course to nurture the mind through meditation, prayer and reflection.  

However, the one thing that most of us tend to leave out is the soul.  So how do we nurture the soul?  Well, one of the first things is to allow yourself to be creative.  What do you find pleasing to do?  Is it writing? Why not try writing a poem?  Cooking?  Why not try a new recipe?  Drawing or painting? Why not try drawing something you never envisioned before or just let the paint, brush, crayon or marker just go and do what it is supposed to do.  I put on music like the Four Seasons by Vivaldi or Gregorian Chants when I am drawing and see where it takes me.  What do I feel within?  What colours do I reach for?  What is coming forward?  I just let it go and go with whither Spirit takes me.

The other element of Spirit of course is truth and awareness.  How truthful are you being about yourself?  How aware are you of your surroundings?  I remember a friend of mine who was always anxious at every Christmas and New Year’s Eve party wondering what people would say about her?   I said to her they are going to say what they say and you are who you are – just be you and be authentic.  That is more powerful than what they say, is it not?  If others listen to them then you are clear at where everything stands.

We all have Divine Essence within.  If we choose to ignore it then it is on us not on others.  Ownership is 100% it is not 50% or 99.9% it is 100%. Be aware to seek to the truth for Divine seeks that we do.  How can you be in the right relationship if you do not seek what Divine seeks?

Embrace your DIVINENESS!  It is within!  2022 here we come!
