Ooh . . . the topic of self-care has been hot in my world lately. 

At the beginning of February, we began working with element of water in the Crystal Shaman Initiation program. This element can be challenging as we sink deep into emotions, creativity, and personal power. It is a time when we really go deep within. 

It is also a time when excessive self-care is very important. 

Self-care is self-love. 

Sometimes it is a decadent salt bath, a walk in the woods, meeting up with friends for conversation and glass of wine. Sometimes it’s a a massage, time at the spa, or a lavish vacation.

And, sometimes self-care isn’t pretty.

The spiritual path isn’t always pretty.

Life isn’t always pretty.

Healing isn’t always pretty.

Self-care isn’t always sexy.

But it is doing the things that we need to do in order to create space within our mind, our body, and our spirit.

It can be a hulu binge, clearing out the closets, organizing the cupboards, creating a budget, getting a healing session, stepping back from toxic dynamics within relationships, creating space to hermit, folding the laundry, doing the dishes, clearing out your inbox, leaving a party early, saying no to a get together. It is creating space to feel, to really feel. It’s leaning into the support of others who have the capacity to truly support you. It is creating space to listening within.

Self-care isn’t always sexy. 

But it is, in my opinion, always worth it.

In this week’s episode of the Crystal Shaman Life podcast I dive deeper into this conversation.

much love, Lori
