Why Self-Care Actually Leads to Abundance

Did you know that a dedicated practice of self-care can actually lead to more abundance?

abundance - jianiteo websiteApproximately 10 years ago (before I even knew about the Law of Attraction, manifestation, and abundance), I suffered from a very unhealthy habit known as “self-sacrifice”.

I was good at “giving to others” but not so good at “receiving for myself”.

As a result, I was stressed-out, burnt-out and energetically depleted more often than not.

AND, because I wasn’t consistently taking care of myself, I wasn’t able to foster, build, and grow the energy I needed to attract what I wanted with ease.

As I started to learn about the various energetic laws of the Universe, I realized that by NOT taking care of myself I was inadvertently blocking abundance from coming into my life!

Did you know that there are actually spiritual laws of the universe that aid us ALL in manifesting and attracting what we desire?

AND, did you know that the practice of self-care can greatly enhance this ability?

Over the years, I’ve learned a lot about these energetic & spiritual laws and found that there are 3 main components of abundance that must be considered for a person to manifest with more ease and grace.

To help you learn how self-care can actually lead to abundance I’d like to share with you these 3 main components of abundance that I’ve learned, which are as follows:

  1. Your ability to receive. This represents your willingness to receive abundance with gratitude and grace (instead of resistance and unworthiness). With this ability in place you are energetically telling the Universe that you are “worthy” of abundance instead of resisting it’s efforts to bring you what you desire. For example, if someone gave you a compliment, a gift, or a monetary offering would you accept with gratitude and grace? Or would you feel resistant to accepting that gift because you’re worried that the other person wants something in return. Or concern that the compliment, gift, or offering they are giving you is “too much”?
  2. Your ability to build & sustain. This represents your ability to foster, build, and grow any abundance that comes your way. Without this level of self-discipline in place you are energetically telling the Universe that you only want abundance if it’s “easy”. Although manifesting and attracting CAN be easy, it often requires at least some amount of dedication, desire, and effort on your part to for the Universe to know that you are not taking your abundance lightly. For example, are you squandering the abundance (whether it be time, energy, or money) you attract thoughtlessly? Or do you have a schedule, a budget, an investment plan, or a practice of self-care & discipline that helps you build and sustain any abundance you’ve received?
  3. Your ability to reciprocate. This represents your ability to reciprocate and give back others in some way. It also represents your willingness to give back to yourself! It’s important to note that this does NOT need to be immediate reciprocation upon receiving abundance, but rather something that allows you “to pay forward” the abundance you’ve received at a future date and time to a future recipient. This gift could be in the form of time, energy, or money and because the Universe abhors a void, this willingness to pay it forwrad can make you more magnetic to future forms of abundance that come your way.

When we practice all 3 of these components regularly in our life (as it relates to our time, our energy, or our money) it becomes much easier for us to manifest and attract what we desire!

So, why does self-care actually lead to abundance?

First, a self-care practice meets all 3 of the components related to abundance so that you can manifest with more ease and grace!! Here’s why:

  • Self-care represents your willingness to receive your own self-love, health & harmony into your life.
  • Self-care can be a daily/weekly/monthly practice of self-discipline that represents your willingness to foster, build, & grow that self-love, health & harmony.
  • Self-care is the ultimate gift you can give to yourself because it represents your willingness to reciprocate and give back to yourself.

With all of the above in place, not only will you feel great about yourself, your health, AND your life but you will also be activating the Law of Attraction with a much higher vibration and frequency in place!

Which of course, is what leads to our ability to manifest and attract with EASE. 🙂

Second, self-care is nurturing and “feminine” in nature, which is greatly needed to balance all of the “masculine” energy (“doing”, taking action, prioritizing,  etc..) we as humans need to employ in order to meet our daily tasks, priorities, and obligations.

With women especially, operating in our masculine energy all the time can be highly draining and exhausting. A regular self-care practice offsets all the energy we’re putting out and refuels our body, mind, & spirit, allowing us to be more feminine in nature AND even more effective when we do need to be in our masculine energy!

AND, this feminine energy is what allows to just “be” in the moment more easily, helps us go with the flow, has an energy of “allowing” (vs. forcing), and it encourages creativity which are ALL huge components to attracting abundance with more ease!

Third, self-care = self-love, which is considered to be the highest frequency and emotional experience available to us as humans.

In fact, love also vibrates at the same frequency as gratitude which ties in to our ability to “receive” more readily the gifts that each life experience brings.

Not only that, but self-love has the ability to heal old emotional wounds, allows us to have more compassion and patience others, and is ultimately what will result in a change in our external world.

WHY? Because your external world is always a reflection for what’s going on inside. Remember, according to the Law of Attraction, “like attracts like”. 🙂

To see if self-care actually can lead to more abundance for YOU (whether it be more self-love, prosperity, health, happiness, joy, etc…!), consider implementing the following:

  • Pay attention to your willingness to 1) receive, 2) build/foster/grow, and 3) reciprocate in ALL areas of your life for a period of 1-2 weeks. If you find that one of the 3 components is regularly NOT in place, create and implement a simple self-care ritual that will foster/build/grow that missing area for a month and see what changes.
  • Notice how much time you spend in both “masculine” and “feminine” energy mode to see if there’s an imbalance. Free up some time in your schedule so that you can incorporate more “feminine” energy activities (i.e. these would be activities that energize, inspire, delight, empower, or allow you to be more creative!) to balance out all the “masculine” activities that you engage in.
  • On a scale of 1-10 (with 10 being extraordinary), rate how much you LOVE yourself. If it’s less than a 10, determine the #1, simplest thing you could do to create change in that area & turn it into a self-care practice for ONE month.

At the end of one month, notice any new forms of abundance that arise in your life as a result of these changes! 🙂

If you’re diligent with these recommendations, you’ll likely notice a difference in how you’re feeling AND how you’re attracting.

Imagine… how much easier would it be to manifest, attract, and create what you desire if you truly loved your self, your health, & your life?!

Self-care is the answer. 🙂

The Journey Method®

Are you ready to break free of the unresolved saboteurs that sabotage your greatness & cause you to sacrifice your soul, sanity, or health?

Does emotional drama, heart ache, or heart break lead you to burnout or hold YOU back in life?

Let’s be real. There are times in everyone’s life when unresolved saboteurs impedes one’s efforts & often, it happens unconsciously! This is all too common & often very detrimental to our ability to deal with everyday stressors or create the life of our dreams.

So WHY do we unconsciously sabotage our success…?

The Problem

Often, the reason we sabotage ourselves is not even by choice! As we go through life, we have experiences both negative & positive that unconsciously shape our beliefs, behaviors, & interactions with others.

Who you are NOW is a direct correlation to the conditioning of your past experiences.

Whether you like it or not, unconscious conditioning, beliefs, behaviors, interactions, & trauma of both your past AND present can greatly affect how you choose to handle life lessons & experiences that come your way!

If left unconscious & unaddressed, this kind of programming can begin to show up in one or more of the following ways:

  • Chronic Stress & Anxiety (physical, mental, & emotional)
  • Panic Attacks/Phobias 
  • Deep-Seated Fears (not being good enough, a failure, success, unlovability, abandonment, rejection, not being smart enough, not being unique/just like everyone else, safety, not being supported, vulnerability, conflict, etc…)
  • Limiting Beliefs (deep-seated beliefs that come from programming & conditioning
  • Bad Habits (procrastination, addictive behaviors, distractions, obsessive compulsive behaviors, etc…)
  • Unhealthy Vows (deep-seated beliefs that make you feel you can NEVER be/do/have/achieve what you desire)
  • Toxic Thoughts (Failure Mentality, Victim Mentality, Scarcity/Lack Mentality, suicidal)
  • Deadly Emotions (depression, sadness, stress, anger, rage, resentment, overwhelm, shame, guilt, etc…)
  • Physical Health Dis-ease (digestive issues, organ dysfunction, exhaustion/fatigue, ADD/ADHD, cancer, tumors, tension, degeneration, etc..)
  • Chronic Stress or Overwhelm (over-commitment, hyper-sensitivity, hyper-vigilance, hyper-distracted, etc…)
  • Addictive Behaviors (smoking, drinking, caffeine, sugar, salt, soda, fast food, social media, etc…)
  • Personality Patterns (over-critical, over-giving, over-achieving, over-dramatizing, over-withdrawal, over-analyzing, over-adventurous, over-aggressive, overly passive, etc…)
  • Blocks to Abundance (Giving/Receiving, Lack/Scarcity, Nurture/Growth)
  • Un-resolved Trauma (PTSD, physical/mental/verbal/sexual abuse, abandonment, neglect, etc…)
  • Disconnection to Higher Self (operating out of Human Animal or Human Ego behaviors)
  • …and many, many more!

Sadly, ALL forms of sabotage if left unchecked will often lead to burnout or worse… PHYSICAL DIS-EASE.

This of course prevents us from embracing our GREATNESS, living in JOY, & creating the life of our dreams!

The Solution

In order to resolve these saboteurs at a cellular level, it’s important to heal the pain of your past & recondition yourself for greatness. 

In order to do this, you will need to go through a process of radical self-discovery to identify the saboteurs that hold you back & then systematically heal & resolve these issues… at a cellular level!

From there, you’ll then need to take personal responsibility for your life by learning the art of self-care & embodied self-mastery!

This is why the The Journey Method® along with the forward-moving Self-Care for the Soul Programs I offer is such a great way to break free from anything that holds YOU back!

Not only will you be able to break free of the blocks & limitations that sabotage you at a cellular level but you’ll also receive the support & guidance you need to take better care of yourself & become your very own hero!

Wouldn’t it be amazing if you could really become the master of your fate & your destiny?

What would it be like to master your mindset AND your life?

Well, it’s absolutely possible!

The Science Behind Cellular Memory

To heal the pain of the past, you must heal & address any unresolved cellular memory patterns from your past in a way that opens the cell receptors.

Dr. Candace Pert, a well-known author of Molecules of Emotion & cellular biologist, discovered that whenever we have an intense, powerful emotion that we repress or shut down, specific chemical changes take place in our bodies. These changes can affect certain cell receptors, blocking those cells from communicating with the other cells in our bodies & increasing the likelihood for disease to occur.

Supporting evidence has also been found by Deepak Chopra, M.D. & author of Quantum Healing, who believes that as cells regenerate, cellular memory gets carried into each new generation of cells. If there is a negative life experience that was not resolved or dealt with in a healthy way, the negative imprint in that cellular memory CAN lead to emotional & physical dis-ease in the body over time. It can also put into place the self-sabotage behaviors we engage in to handle many of life’s challenges.

Opening the cell receptors in a way that heals negative trauma can often be accomplished by learning how to express your emotions, forgive, & gain wisdom from past setbacks & mistakes.

Fortunately, The Journey Method® is a wonderful tool that allows you to do just that!

The Law of Attraction

To recondition yourself for greatness, you must learn to focus your thoughts, actions, & attention in a way that empowers you (rather than disempowers you) through a natural law of the Universe known as The Law of Attraction.

Simply put, the Law of Attraction is the ability to attract into our lives whatever we are focusing on. It is believed that regardless of age, nationality or religious belief, we are all susceptible to the laws which govern the Universe, including the Law of Attraction. It is the Law of Attraction which uses the power of the mind to translate whatever is in our thoughts and materialize them into reality. In basic terms, all thoughts turn into things eventually.

From a quantum physics standpoint, everything is made up of energy. Since the human body is also made up of energy, the frequency we vibrate at varies based on our physical, mental, & emotional state, leading to the attraction of both positive & negative life experiences. The most powerful forms of energy & vibration are our thoughts, feelings, spoken word, & written word so what we think, feel, say, & write in every moment… we become. 

Our emotional state is a powerful indicator of where we are energetically (or vibrationally) & can be a powerful predictor for what we ultimately attract into our lives.

Low-vibrational emotions such as anger, fear, rage, grief, sadness, hopelessness, & despair are toxic & will make us more magnetic to negative experiences & often lead to emotional & physical dis-ease in the body.

High-vibrational emotions such as love, gratitude, joy, forgiveness, compassion, empathy, trust, faith, etc… will raise our vibration & make us more magnetic to positive experiences & have a positive effect on our health & life.

Looking at your own life, consider the following contrasting situations:

  • Pessimists think, feel, speak, act, & write from a more cynical, dis-empowered & negative place, thus creating a reality that brings them more negative life experiences.
  • Optimists think, feel, speak, act, & write from a more grateful, empowered & positive place, thus creating a reality that brings them more positive life experiences.

One of the key elements to the Law of Attraction working in your favor is to raise your vibrational energy by releasing the low-vibrational conditioning, programming, and patterns that sabotage your success.

This will result in the POSITIVE attraction & manifestation of ALL forms of abundance!

Fortunately, The Journey Method® is also a wonderful tool to help you focus your attention on the more empowered & positive aspects of your life, while raising your vibration & impacting your physical, mental, & emotional health in a positive way.

The Journey Method®

Journey LogoThe Journey Method®  is a very POWERFUL form of cellular release work accomplished through a simple, guided meditation process.

This work has been around for well over 20 years now & was created by a woman named Brandon Bays, who actually healed herself of a tumor the size of a basketball!

The Journey Method® works at a cellular level, releasing & healing cellular memory from painful experiences in our past.

It also reconditions any dis-empowering thoughts, feelings, & beliefs that might be sabotaging our success & helps us re-frame our life experiences in a way that raises our vibration & helps us evolve physically, mentally, emotionally, & spiritually!

The experiences that we hold onto or feel pain around are the very memories that put into place any negative emotions, thoughts, beliefs, behaviors, & reactions we exhibit in our present moment.

The key to clearing out these sabotage patterns is to revisit those past experiences in a NEW, healthier way so that we can gain clarity, wisdom, gratitude, & forgiveness of all that happened so that you can move on & heal you life once & for all!

Are you in hot water?

 

 Hot Water 

Have you ever felt like you were in over your head…?
  
Or that you were reaching your boiling point & weren’t too sure how to gain back your sanity?

We ALL have times in our life where it feels like we have SO much going on that adding even one more thing to the mix is going to be the tipping point between sanity & pure chaos.

Over-committment is very common & can lead to feelings of chaos & overwhelm, but oftentimes, we aren’t even aware that WE are the ones creating the chaos with our willingness to commit to that which doesn’t serve us.

So, how can YOU handle staying calm & grounded during these times of chaos…?
It differs for each person but the key to maintaining that balance without going off the deep end, losing it emotionally, or being burned out by over-commitment is to allow time for yourself to decompress & unwind.

And since that looks different for everyone, you might want to ask yourself the following questions to get clarity on what works for YOU:
  
FOR REFLECTION:

For Reflection

  1. What relaxes me? Sometimes, just
     taking a few quiet moments of reflection time can be enough to escape the hustle, bustle, & noise of everyday
     life. As an example, NOT listening to the radio or music in the car is a great way to create that space!
  2. What gives me time to feel & process any emotions associated with being overwhelmed? Are you angry, resentful, bitter, exhausted? Allowing yourself to actually feel & welcome emotions that are there in the moment can sometimes be enough of a release to bring some peace back into your day. Allow time & activities that will allow you to process emotions.
  3. What rejuvenates & energizes me? The best activities are those that will fuel you for long periods of time. Learn what these activities are for you.
  4. What can I let go of to create more time for myself? This can be a tough one to do because you might have to let go of something you really want to do, so be brutally honest & challenge yourself to only take on those tasks & activities that are going to support & enhance your well-being & peace of mind.

The answers to these questions can give you some healthy options for handling those times where conflict, chaos, & over-commitment are present. Be creative & start coming up with ideas of your own today!

And, for those of you struggling with ideas, here’s one to consider – take a bath!! Soaking in a nice hot tub or hot spring can be relaxing, allows time for processing emotion, can be extremely rejuvenating, & can give you time to think about what you can let go of so that you can create more space for sanity in your life.

Check out the Self Care for the Soul video I created below that outlines the importance of taking a bath for self-care & how to create that space in a way that works for you:
