It is always good to remember what Myrtle Filmore said and that is “In Spirit and in Truth we are now and always every whit whole.” By that she means even to the smallest parts of our being we are whole, we are healed. We have that capacity with each of us.
What is our part in healing ourselves so we can fully experience wholeness more consistently?
Every day affirm and truly believe that we are whole. Yes, I have to remind myself. I know very well how we get caught up in doing and not remembering to “do” some self-care. Self-care is the foundation for everything you are “doing”. It is a necessity, not an indulgence. Just like breathing, sleeping, eating well, exercising in any form, self-care fuels you and connects you to your soul. Now the “doings” become easier and more meaningful in each moment.
How to do that? Small, simple acts can be woven into the day to hold you and the day together. Start with some quiet time for prayer and meditation (seated or walking or engaged in a meaningful ritual). Even 10-15 minutes is effective. It sets the stage for the day. Three slow deep breaths with your eyes closed can be done anytime and reset you. Really! It works. Try it now. How do you feel? Gratitudes interspersed throughout the day for even the smallest awareness. Look for reasons to be grateful and say “Thank you” to God, a person, an observation, the angels. Does that bring a smile to your face? Share gratitudes with others. Give yourself treats – a cup of favorite tea or other healthy beverage, a brief walk around the garden or outdoors anywhere, listen to your favorite music, a leisurely bath, a massage, call a friend or family member, read from a favorite book, take some time for a favorite hobby, watch a sunset, go into nature to meditate/commune. What does your self-care treats list look like? It’s nice to have a written reminder of things we can do for ourselves. Share these ideas with family and friends for mutual support. You can do it! You are worth it! You are every whit whole!
