Something I learned a while back was in order for me to really know *ME* I had to take time each day to address 4-critical elements of my soul:
When we take time to nurture these 4 aspects of our life we are able to tune in to the person we really are. We are able to give to ourselves all that we need and in turn we able to give MORE to the people and things we love.
Do you ever ask yourself how you can fulfill your intellectual side? Maybe you do and that is awesome, because we are never to old to learn…in fact I would go as far as to argue that if you are not learning something new daily you are not fueling a side to you that can ignite some serious passion toward life.
If we don’t take time to emotionally fulfill our needs daily how can we actually be emotionally available to those we love? Think about this in terms of the oxygen mask on an airplane. I used to think it was crazy when they said “If you are traveling with a small child, give oxygen to yourself first and then administer oxygen to the child.” I thought ‘hell no’ I would give to my child first – but then I got it. The potential of me passing out from not getting oxygen would then put us both at risk…Isn’t this the same in life? When we give in excess we emotionally “pass-out” and then no one wins!

When we fuel our body with colorful, nutritious food and move daily, we feel better and look better from the InsideOut! Our bodies need healthy nourishment so we can be energetic, creative, and focused. When we feel good everything in life tends to look a lot better.
This may be the most important one… addressing your spiritual needs. We have done a great job in this world getting VERY noisy. We wake up and turn on the TV, get in our cars and turn on the radio, get to work and talk ALL. DAY. LONG. Just to repeat this same cycle in a reverse fashion… get in the car turn on the radio, get home turn on the TV, everyone gets home – talk some more. We are very noisy – very noisy! So, with all this noise, how are we able to hear what we need? We don’t, this is why so many people walking around discontent, complacent, and lacking that zest for life.
People who are in touch with their spiritual side ~ they know themselves – their soul – they are the people we look at and think “I want what she’s having!” We see how vibrant, confident, and happy they are; they truly let their light shine. They drown out the noise and allow themselves to connect to their deeper self. As a result, they live a magnificent life!
Taking time to address these 4-key elements of your soul will allow you to live with abundance, awareness, and a vibrancy that otherwise would be absent. When we give to ourselves, we are more available to give to others. We have less resentment. Stress doesn’t own us. Overwhelm is less and less. The feelings of ‘something has to give’ are non-existent.
Today, take some time in your daily life to address these 4-key elements. Give yourself the spiritual oxygen you need to fill your heart with abundance. It is okay to take time to nurture yourself, in fact it will make *YOU* a better *YOU*! We all deserve to know what we need and then address those needs. And when we do our life and the lives of the people we love ignite with joy!
Start with 5-minutes per day of complete silence. Then, ask yourself how you can address each of these 4-elements and then commit to doing it. Watch what happens from the InsideOut!
