The spiritual awakening can be a tough one. One of most aspects of spirituality filled life is self care. Self care is nothing like a selfish attitude. Just remember the saying that you cannot possibly water the plants from empty vessel. If you don’t recharge or refill your cup, you simply cannot pour into other cups. The best way to practice spiritual life along with fulfilling experience is to practice spiritual self care. I am presenting to you the tips which helped me cope up as well as fully live my life.
The breaks can refill you. Arrange the family gathering to remember love of family. Arrange going somewhere to appreciate the gift of traveling ability. The short breaks will surely allow you to recharge your stamina. Staying constantly sharpened can blunt a blade.
Learn to Say No and Yes:
You might become too receptive to people’s requests too much. If this is the case, simply learn to say no once in a while. You deserve self-care and time for yourself.
If you have become too indulged in solitude, remember that we need people’s company in our life too. We also need to say yes equally to saying no. The goal is not to be alone, rather create balance of self and others place in your heart.
Embrace the Chaos:
Sometimes it is the most chaotic moments when we don’t know one of our biggest gifts is waiting to be given to us for being patient. Embrace all the difficulties and chaos of life. Thank master that it is for you to grow and become stronger and better. It is exactly why it is there in your life. Don’t let any other thought take place. Be of mind that it will only get better with temporary set backs.
Wear the cloak of gratitude and your life will be covered in all aspects as said by Rumi. It is true. Be grateful for your life. You will enjoy life as you are and you allow it to be instead of how others view it. You deserve best and this habit will ensure it.
Spiritual self-care is needed for your growth and blissful solitude. Remember that your relation with God is personal which also means that staying in good health and shape will strengthen your spirit too.
