The Art of Giving (to yourself)

Let’s talk about giving today. From what I am seeing on the healing table, we all need to be giving more to ourselves. You can give and give to others until you have little life force left. Energetically most of you come into the healing room depleted. I am often pouring Source energy into you over and over again.  
are you ready to start giving more to yourself?

are you ready to start giving more to yourself?

We think it’s admirable to give, and it is. But, if you don’t have extra energy to give then you have not made a difference in the amount of light on the planet with your giving. Yes, you gave to another, adding light to their energy field, but unless you had plenty of excess light to give you diminished your own energy to give to another. 
The goal of giving is to have so much light, happiness, and love to give that it doesn’t take from you. When we give money, gifts, time, love, we transfer light to another. The chakras need to be spilling over with light in order to give that light. When the chakras are overflowing giving feels so wonderful because the flow of light is happening through you – whether they like your gift or not!  
There are so many ways to give to yourself. You can buy yourself little gifts as you shop for others. Instead of feeling guilty about this, let yourself feel really special and loved by YOU… and by the Angels. You can sit in your car between errands with hot chai in a thermos and one of your favorite songs. You can lie down for 20 minutes after running errands. You can massage your feet before you go to bed. You can wake up ten minutes early in the morning to sit in your dark room and imagine that snow is falling on you as if you are in a magical land like Narnia – and there you feel awake and alive.
Let’s see how many ways this summer you can give to yourself in little ways throughout each day. 
Let’s play a game. Text a friend every time you give to yourself. For example, you would write, “I took a short walk. The flowers are so pretty.” Your friend who is playing the game with you would get this text from you and think, “Crap! I haven’t done one thing for me today!” She would write, “Thanks for the reminder!”  Then, later, she would write, “I soaked my feet in a hot tub of water with eucalyptus oil.” The friend receiving this text would think, “Ooooh, that’s a good one!” See how long you can keep the game going… keep the chain of giving and caring for ourselves going. 
If we were all giving to ourselves can you imagine how fulfilled we would all be? And how much we could in turn give to the world?
