Treat Yourself Well

I love myself well.
I fill my own needs with kindness.
I treat myself with respect and appreciation.
I forgive myself for ever neglecting or indulging myself. 
What is best for me is best for others.
When I am at my best, I can give my best to others.

Usually we learn self care by watching others.
In infancy we learn how to care for ourselves by how we are cared for.
If we are listened to, we listen to ourselves.
If we are neglected, we learn to neglect ourselves.

Children may be treated as playthings, with over attention sometimes and divine neglect other times.
Children may be treated as pets, with basic care and then allowed to grow up on their own.
Children may be treated as investments, giving them the best of everything so they grow up as the best.
Children may be treated as servants and privileged guests, used and abused or over indulged and lazy.

How we treat ourselves often determines how we treat others.
When we do not know how to respect and care for ourselves, we may not know how to treat others.
When we do not care for ourselves, we may allow others to mistreat us.
Human programming or patterns often repeat themselves, because we do not know better.
To know better is to do better.

Always begin with yourself.
Care for yourself as though you are precious….because you are.
Respect your needs…..because they are your needs to fill.
Give yourself what is truly best for you……because only you know what is best.

This is your life.
It is for you to choose what loves you, what inspires you, what takes the best care of you.
When you have been neglected, you may ignore your own needs.
When you have been pampered, you may pamper yourself.

What is healthy is determined by what works for you.
What makes you the happiest and healthiest and most loving and kind?
What inspired you to actualize your potential and live fully and freely?
What encourages you to utilize your gifts and give others the best you have?

Below are some whole life health reminders.
Remember that you are responsible for your wellbeing.
You are capable of loving you well or neglecting your needs.
You teach others how to treat you and themselves by how you treat yourself.

To live in a world for healthy independent responsible and conscious people, be responsible for yourself.
I trust everyone can and will choose to free ourselves from neediness and fill ourselves with Good.
When we are fulfilled, we teach others to fulfill themselves.
And so it is, all will benefit.

Give yourself what is best for YOU

Ten Keys to Health & Vitality

Ingest the best and forget the rest.  Take into your body, mind and spirit only that which supports, sustains and inspires the BEST in you.

Life is flow. To move with the flow is healthy. To resist is stressful. Move with the natural inner movement physically, emotionally, mentally, spiritually, etc.

To breathe in (inhale) fully life energy, Spirit, Prana, inspiration, is to expand our awareness to open to an enlightened mind.  To exhale fully is to truly release what is no longer needed.

Reaching out with Love and respect for each other opens our bodies and beings to trust in the gentleness we all deserve to experience.

Choose for those thoughts which heal and free you to be unlimited in health and wholeness. Forgive (erase) the beliefs which are limiting or false.

Carry with you an attitude of gratitude and love for yourself and others.  Allow yourself to see all things work together for good.

Moderation in all things will bring your life into harmony.  As we give ourselves what is really best for us, the extremes are gently released.

What you perceive in others and the world you strengthen in your Self.  Focus on illness, disease and weakness and you actually weaken yourself.  See only health and wholeness and you move yourself in the direction you are looking.

To clear out toxins and purify the system requires a willingness to eliminate toxic thoughts, activities, relationships as well as foods from your system.  Flushing the system clean is aided with water, fresh air, gentle movement and forgiveness.

To rest and relax your mind and body are invaluable to being refreshed and revitalized. Each person has unique methods of relaxation - meditation, music, being in nature, focused simple activity.
