Welcome, Welcome, WELLLLCOMEEE right on in, Expectation Breakers! We are back today with a little inner standing about loving, expressing, and protecting thyself each and everyday. Self care is a must on the ‘To Do List’ of life. However, sometimes it’s the second to last activity we engage in throughout our days. How can we help others in this Universe if we aren’t taking care of ourselves? Hmmm. Great question. The answer is well, you can’t. Point, blank, question mark?
On the other hand, there are ways we can love, express and protect ourselves each and everyday, which is by meditating, medicating and being well within ourselves (mindfulness). Yes, it sounds simple and easy, but a lot of us aren’t taking care of ourselves. We are stressing ourselves out mentally, physically and emotionally, and hurting each other because we are sick and hurt.
Meditation is a healing process in which we can experience each day. Well, it’s not really a process, but it is cathartic. Meditation is taking a couple minutes out our day, for beginners, or hours to quiet ourself. Quieting the world around us, outside us, but also quieting inside us can be done easily. Quieting the inside must come first, but if you have to go backwards to get started that’s fine too.
Meditation is calming the mind of thoughts and focusing on either our breathes, heartbeats ( inside activity) , or background noise in the settings we are at in that moment. We may meditate while dancing, eating, drinkkng, or sleeping. Being and just being present is the key of meditation. Constantly hearing, seeing, and feeling the ‘NOW’ presence gives us such an emotional bliss, in which allows us to be in our natural state. We are beings that crave just ‘being’ in utter and total stillness.
When we become mindful of what and how we think, the foods we eat, the energy we allow to be around or express to others, and the activities we do daily, we began to change. We become the beings we want to be. It naturally creates itself. Like attracts like. Eating junk food and then wondering why we have upset stomachs is an example of unmindfulness. Eating food with Fiber, Calcium, Vitamins A-Z, protein, and other viable ailments that we already possess in our bodies gives the energy, the care, and the health our soul needs. This is our medicine. Food is love. Food is medicine.
Sometimes we put other people or outside things before our own happiness because of unconscious habits. Taking care of ‘Me’ is as important if not more important than taking care of everyone else. Being and being mindful of how we are feeling daily creates great health. Meditation (breathing exercises, or quiet time), eating great food, taking walks, exercising, or just going out with friends are great ways of taking care of ‘Me’. We don’t even have to spend time with other people to get our ‘Me’ time. Doing all the things we love, emerging ourselves into total enjoyment in whatever we are currently doing gives us the healing we think we get from prescription drugs, or the outside world. And it’s free.
All in all understanding and practicing the three Mmms: Meditation, Medication, and Me breathes life into us. If we practice these simple notions each day we become our greatest selves. Everything else in our life such as family, work, and health aligns itself.
