Don't put off self care

There will always be reasons to avoid listening to your hearts while you are here upon the planet earth. It is incredibly human to make excuses about why you cannot take care of yourselves. There may not be enough money as you see it. Others may seem to need you so much you have no time for yourselves. However, when you spend your time, your money, and your energy fulfilling the dictates of your own heart, then you honor God. God is the one that inspires true desires. The loving presence of God rises up within you and wants you to live in truth. You were meant to feel healthy, happy, connected with the Presence of God's love within you and for you. Within this loving reality you will be guided to share that love with those around you, and you will know the true generosity of sharing from within a reality of feeling wonderful, loved, and abundant in every way.

So many of you struggle, thinking you must choose between your own well being or the well being of those around you. You feel you must take care of others and neglect yourselves. You feel you can't give enough to others while paying your own bills. And yet dear ones, nothing could be further from the truth! In the perfection of God's love there is enough time, money, and love for all. In the perfection of God's love, some are guided to give while others are guided to receive. In the perfection of God's love, all interactions are guided by none other than love.

If you are guided to care for someone and it is a joy, that guidance comes from God. When God wants you to care for another, you will have the heart for it, the strength, the resources, and the time. When your ego feels you must care for another out of "duty" or to feel like a good person, then watch out dear friends. You will harbor resentments, feel lack, and find there is no joy in such pretense. Far more important than what you do on this earth, is the authenticity and the love with which you do it.

Stop making excuses for avoiding self care. Stop making excuses for avoiding your dreams and the lives you wish to create. The world may not give you what you want. People may disappoint you, tug and pull at you, bully or manipulate you. You may not yet have the money and you may not think you have the time, but dear ones, this is your life. We want you to live the lives that God wants you to live. You must decide dear friends, if you will make God your God, or if you are going to make money, time, & others your God. Do not worship false idols dear friends. As you continue to trust in God's love and continue to live as you are guided, rather than how you feel you "should" live, your reality will change in glorious ways. Take charge of your existence dear ones... It is a gift more precious than you can imagine while you are here the Earth.
