What is Self-care?

What is self care?

I ask my clients this and I get a range of responses.

I go to the spa. I got my nails done. I went to the gym. I meditate. I eat healthy.

Most of us have some idea of what we do for ourselves that would constitute self- care, but to truly understand it we have to know what the self is first.

I believe the self is multi-faceted and we have to look after all the layers of ourselves in order for us to be at peace.

The 5 layers as I know them:

The Energetic Self: that you that walks into the room before your physical body does. That part of you that picks up on the “tension” in the room or picks up on the “vibe” that someone is giving off.

The Physical Self: your entire physical being. The muscles, bones, plasma… Every cell that comes together to create you.

The Mental Self: the computer or the thought machine. The conscious, subconscious and unconscious mind. All of your thoughts positive and negative.

The Emotional Self: the executor of your emotional responses. Active, passive or shut down responses. The entire spectrum of emotional responses from love to fear.

The Spiritual self: the witness or the soul. The you that looks for connection to that higher power that we believe we come from. That you that questions your very existence.

Now that you know you have this multifaceted self… What are you doing to look after all the layers of you?

What is Meditation?

–       Meditation is the ability to achieve a state of “thoughtless awareness” in which the excessive stress producing activity of the mind is neutralized without reducing alertness and effectiveness.

What are the benefits of Meditation?

–       Meditation can be an effective form of stress reduction and have the potential to improve quality of life and decrease health care costs.

–       Heighten self-awareness and enhance intuitive/psychic abilities, promotes self-healing.

Come join me as I guide you through a type of meditation called a Chakra Meditation so you can experience first hand the power of this ancient practice. A chakra meditation will allow you to centre your attention and focus on clearing your energy centres (chakra system) to allow your body to become more self aware, rebalance and ultimately heal itself.
