Do you care for your Soul ๐Ÿ™„

Why do you hasten to remove what hurts your eyes; but if any thing gnaws upon your mind, do you defer the time of curing it from year to year? 

How is it that an addict will refuse to change their damaging behaviors, yet if they had a splinter in their hand, they would remove it immediately?

We are much more than our physical selves; we are a spiritual being–with mind, body, and soul all in connection.

Nevertheless, we are often quick to forget this relationship and ignore the aches and needs of our soul. 

We often tend to be outward looking in life–we labor over our body’s appearance, we look for approval from others, and we look for happiness from money and things.

But all these things are temporal and fleeting. Why, then, are we unable to protect our souls in the same way we protect our hair with shampoos and conditioners, or our teeth with toothpaste and floss?

Are not they truly the more important part of who we are? 

Part of the issue for many of us is that we have not learned how to recognize such problems or the harm they do.

Another issue is that even after we do recognize them, we have a tendency to rationalize, minimize, and even deny, their effects on us. “I can quit whenever I want,” or “I will quit after this one last time,” or “I really need this.” By postponing the cure, we put ourselves in harm’s way. 

๐ŸŒบ Our souls are precious things. If we chose to live as soulless creatures, simply making our ways through each day without thinking about how we will nourish and care for our spirit, we will damage our souls. ๐ŸŒบ

And unlike a cut or a sore, we cannot visibly see the damage that is done to the soul, we can only feel it. It is therefore of the utmost importance that we ensure that our behaviors are appropriate for who we are and who we want to be. 

Today Take some time to tend to and heal your soul. 

Questions to consider:

Why is it often hard to see any damage that we might be doing to our souls? 

How might we take stock of the condition of our souls in order to care for them well? 

Are you a spiritual being, or simply a physical being? Do you act like one? 

Many of us unknowingly damage our Souls with our negative attitudes and actions or by simple neglect. By making the relationship with your Soul an important part of your life, however, by honoring it in your daily routine, you give your life greater meaning and substance. Use your experiences–all of them–as opportunities to nourish your Soul! 

Personal Development

Now is the time to focus on developing yourself and making personal growth a priority in your life. 

Personal development doesnโ€™t need to be something arduous or stuffy. 

Rather itโ€™s a lifelong process of gaining skills, setting big goals, and increasing confidence.

Through personal empowerment and spiritual growth, you can align with a more fulfilling and higher quality life.

Developing yourself personally is about realizing and maximizing your full potential, and uncovering the true reason for why you are alive in the physical. 

Without focusing on your personal growth first, your service to others will be limited because you will not have the required energy or skills to invest in creating a better world for you and for humanity. 

As you continue forward, you will receive signs and guidance that you are on your right path and how specifically you should continue.

Love opens this guidance. 

Love opens the door. 

Listen and act upon the guidance you receive, and the door will open wider, allowing more growth and more of your authentic truth to shine into this present moment.

Keep taking steps to bring blessings and growth into your own life by focusing on growing personally, stepping into your power, and aligning with more of your authentic truth. 

Nurturing your personal growth through reading, journaling, meditating, and developing skills is a foundation you can then build on to accomplish your lifeโ€™s work.
