|My recurrent theme in my sessions with my mentor was: “I am tired”. She pointed out to me that I was saying that an awful lot. And then her tone changed slightly and she asked me “What is it you Really want Nadhira?”
The tears started to roll down my cheeks. Probably because it was the first time I had connected back in with my Truth again and all this emotion was just energy in motion – energy needing to move through my system: I said after a few seconds of silence:
“I just want to have a break”
My coach said: “Then maybe you should ask for that. Allow yourself to gift yourself what you need.”
Hmm.. so much wisdom in that. It hit me like a ton of bricks! I felt sadness as I realised how much I must have be withholding from myself. Like how many other desires I had kept myself from experiencing. In this instance, a basic human need to rest after a period of exertion. I hadn’t viewed childbirth as “work” or how much mental, emotional and physical endurance was required through that period.
When I got clear that what I really wanted was a break, my whole body just relaxed. I could stop focusing on doing income generating activities for that moment and shift my focus to what it is I really needed.
The cool thing is.. when you really listen and you gift yourself what you need.. after you have your break and really enjoy it.. guess what? You’re thrilled to be back : ) You have fresh energy and new insights and a ton of beautiful, loving energy to share!
