As I’m sure many of you have noticed, I have not posted a blog in a few days. The reason is, I needed to rest. We all need rest, especially when we are involved in spiritual healing and energy work. I work on myself as much as I work on others to stay balanced and healthy. So the other morning when I went to refill my coffee cup and instead of pouring coffee from the pot into my empty cup, I found myself pouring from the empty cup into the coffee pot, I knew I needed some rest. Yet as always, I found myself analyzing this act and realized when we are completely worn out, when we have nothing left to give, when even crying requires too much effort, and food and drink have lost their appeal, when we are completely drained and are still trying to give and do for others, then we’re really just pouring empty.
And as the old saying goes, nothing from nothing leaves nothing. When you have nothing left to give and are still doing, you’re really not doing anyone any good. You’re just going through the motions, and while your intentions are pure, what can you really be providing when you’re drained?
When you allow yourself to rest, recharge, and seek help when you need healing, you are sending the message to yourself, other people and the Universe as a whole, that you respect and love yourself and expect the same from others. How you treat yourself is how others will treat you. Being good to yourself is actually setting a good example.
