Honoring the Sacred Self

“The sacred space that dwells within the self remains true and strengthened when lovingly honored.” Nina Sidell

We are all born with certain fundamental and alienable rights according to spiritual and constitutional laws. As we come into being and exist over time, each person is gifted with the right to life, happiness, and to explore, express, and honor the nature of their existence.

Life is a sacred gift. Knowing your worth as a unique person is where it all begins and ends. It means owning your individual value as you unwrap the gift of life- a pursuit and declaration precious beyond measure. With introspection and self-reflection you learn about yourself over the passage of time and life experiences. You carry yourself, include (or exclude) yourself, and understand that each of us is on a singular journey that we experience together.

No matter what someone else says or does, you deserve to honor the core of who you are. What others say or do does not predict or control what you say or do. More importantly, nothing no one says or does can create or destroy you- not really (although it may feel that way.) In our society of increased narcissism and diminished empathy, listening skills (or the lack thereof) will be reflected in the behavior of others (possibly in yourself). As a conscious and interactive person, your mind and thoughts naturally react causing psychological, emotional, and often behavioral shifts in your state of being. It is up to you how you process experiences within yourself, learn lessons, heal and strengthen your sense of well-being when you relate to others.

Honoring the Sacred Self includes:

  • Paying attention to and acting on your intuition and inner wisdom.
  • Cultivating self-respect, self-honesty, and self-compassion.
  • Crafting self-care time that heals and fortifies you.
  • Learning your life lessons to move past negative patterns and expand ways of living.
  • Eliminating unnecessary stressors and toxic influences.
  • Asking for help, support, and guidance when needed.
  • Becoming curiously introspective to find inner truth and peace.

As sensitive and social thinking creatures with working brains, physiological, and emotional states to consider, we must re-visit our internal states of being routinely.

Take good care of your sacred self and by doing so you improve your life and the lives of others by example.

How do you feel day-to-day and year-to-year? When you stop, look and listen to the world around you, what makes you feel content, safe and secure? You are aware of the extreme challenges facing all of us today and it is your choice in any given moment how you (want to) respond. Today’s world is filled with speed, chaos, fear, uncertainty, violence, natural disasters, and lack of control. Living in a complex, tumultuous world raising constant threats to peace and well-being affect people’s overall stress response, health, relationships and progress.

It is documented that many diseases stem from stress and we need to find ways to create positive change in the world and within ourselves to avoid that.  Continue Reading…

Live in Peace

We have heard the expression when someone passes away, ‘may they “Rest in Peace” or RIP’. I wonder how we would experience our lives if the expression, “Live in Peace” or LIP was a regular part of our collective modern vocabulary? When you were a child growing up, how to handle life was modeled by your caregivers. You learned how to process and cope in your environment. Now when living each moment of your life, you have the choice to live it with presence and mindfulness. You can live with curiosity and joyful energy or with blinders and ear muffs on and feel stuck or overwhelmed. In order to know which direction you are walking on your path, take a moment to review your attitude about your life. What is the underlying feeling you acknowledge about your life experience to-date? What is the feeling state you want to experience most days of your life from now onward?

Look at yourself and your beliefs around how life has to be or seems to be, from your present perspective. Are your thoughts and beliefs in alignment with your core values and dreams? Are your actions consistent with what you desire and yearn to create?

I invite you to take this short quiz and see where you stand:

  • When you see and hear yourself, are your attitudes and self-talk supportive and nurturing or self-sabotaging?
  • Was living peacefully or claiming inner peace a value in your childhood family experience?
  • How do you respond or react when something does not go as planned?
  • Are you able to release others expectations and undo pressures and focus on your goals?
  • Are you in touch with your authentic self and feelings?
  • Can you practice “non-attachment” to other’s responses or reactions?
  • Do you take good care of yourself or do you put your personal needs on the back burner for another time?
  • Do you make feeling calm and peaceful a priority in your life?

Take your time and re-visit this list if you choose to challenge the way you are living or thinking and want to find more peace in your life. If you want to learn ways to bring more peace into your daily life, begin with self-honesty and empathy. Forgive yourself and others who have contributed to minimizing your inner peace and give thanks to the peace that you carry- both count! Continue moving toward what gives you inner healing and peace. You deserve it and you will be glad you did.
