Feeding Ourselves, a Diet without ‘Self’ denial.

I used to think that ‘giving up something’ was the first step to better health; Give up coffee, get more clarity, give up meat, be more energetically sensitive. I know allot of friends that give up fats and oils in their diets, to get thinner, or give up sugar to feel better about their bodies.

After many years of meditating, and letting my ego tell me what was ‘good’ or ‘bad’, I finally created enough space and silence so that I could actively ‘hear’ my angels, and their loving guidance on the subject.

This is what they say to me, and it always resonates as truth, if I begin to veer towards self-denial on a physical, etheric or emotional plain:

Feed yourself so much sweetness in life, that you no longer crave chocolate.

Celebrate the beauty around you, and within you, relish the sensuality of nature, and become the sensual being you yearn to be.  Your shape and size are a reflection of the beauty of God(dess), and if you let yourself ‘be’ in this moment, as glorious as your soul truly is, you will spend the day dancing, instead of suffering. Your joints are lubricated by joy, as well as essential fatty acids and oils.

Decide you truly deserve happiness.  That’s right, say out loud: “Today I am Happy!!” not with conditions of monetary goals, pant size, perfect job, ideal relationship, or brand new vehicle.  Today, decide, that you will be happy, and allow yourself to be! Be happy in the face of a spilled beverage on your new white shirt, with the car that broke down, giving you a few blessed minutes, after the frustration, to meditate and watch the world pass by.  Happiness is a state of mind.  Our mind’s are all powerful, we are in charge.

Acknowledge grief.  Feel it, and weep, and as the tears fall down, let them transform to cleansing waters.  Like a river that is rushing past you, let the grief go.  If we allow ourselves to feel the feelings, we can transform to a lighter sence of being afterwards.  Grief is real.  It can be burried beneath anger, or guilt, but if we honor it by truly feeling it, there is a blessing beneath; the river of release has just lightened your being, it has created greater space for joy.  Celebrate the warrior(ess) you have been through the situations that caused grief, and stand with pride, for you are brilliant with light, beauty and greater compassion for all of those people and situations you encounter in your future.

Say: “I am rich with abundance, my life and being are ripe with inspiration, integrity and opportunity,” and repeat it, until your ego has shrivelled up, from the strength of your words.

Yes, we can all spend a lifetime tailoring our food choices and exercise regime to the latest and greatest ‘diet,’ but when we centre ourselves into the awareness of what our true cravings are; for love, reassurance, abundance, safety, and joy, then many of the ‘health’ choices, food, and exercise come intuitively.  If we make choices based on ‘what is for my highest good’, instead of focusing on self denial or lack, then we are free to let the light, the divine, our angels, guides and higher selves support and encourage us on every level.

May something in this post resonate with your own truth,

with love

Boundaries and Personal Power

Image

Boundaries are healthy intentions to create and keep a sacred space around the ‘self’ and energy field.  Like a plant in the warmth of the sun, the more we invest and strengthen our ‘boundaries’, the stronger and healthier they become.  Having a ‘boundary’ that allows you to acknowledge what is healthy and supportive of your life purpose, daily interactions, and evolving relationships is challenging, yet attainable.

To create and explore your own unique sacred space, I offer you this visualization:

Retreat to a place that feels ‘safe’, this could be outside, or inside, but is best practiced alone, or at least alone within a twelve foot radius.  Interlace your fingers and place them over your solar plexus and begin to relax into deeper breathing.

When your lungs and body feel as though they are saturated in oxygen, choose a vibrant color that resonates with you.  This color should be bright, and make you feel safe, healthy and vital when you see, or wear it.

Imagine that you have picked up a giant paintbrush, and draw a circle around yourself.  This circle touches the ground, leaving space between you and the surrounding world.  The line the paintbrush leaves is thick and strong.  If you need to draw the circle more than once to feel that it is solid, do so.

Once drawn, take a moment to set an intention/ or prayer, something like this: “I ask that my higher self, my guides, my guardian angels and the ascended masters, God(dess), and earth helpers help to clear my energy field from any negativity and fear that I no longer wish to carry.  In this circle of light, I reconnect with my Being, life purpose, and immense Divine Love.”

By enclosing yourself in a circle of light, you have not stopped loving, or being connected with those in your life you love.  You have instead created a stronger inner ability to experience love and center yourself.

Perhaps as your day progresses you will feel this circle shrink.  It might begin to fit your body like a shield of armor, or it may be challenged as you interact with those who are used to trespassing on your boundaries. If you tune into your inner knowing throughout the day, even for a few moment, do a visual scan of what is happening with your circle of light after such interactions, and if necessary, draw the circle with your giant mental paintbrush once more.

Ideally this ‘boundary drawing’ will become routine.  The colors may change with the season’s , your spiritual journey, or your mood and life experiences.  When the colors are vibrant, they are feeding you and protecting your simultaneously.  Some of the angelic hues are:

Archangel Michael works primarily with vibrant blue and purple for safety, and protection.

Archangel Jophiel has hues of pink that lead to seeing the beauty within the self and the world.

Archangel Raphael is a predominantly green hues, bringing healing on all levels to those that work with him.

We all possess the ability to be energetically sensitive and aware.  We all deserve to be nourished internally before sharing our gifts with the world around us.  Healthy boundaries lead to healthy relationships in all aspects of ones life. May you have excellent Health!

With blessings and light
