So many times when giving messages during readings, especially those that are Empaths...... have a difficult time with this. "Putting yourself first". I saw a post about this and that is what sparked this.
Putting yourself first, it doesn't mean that you don't care about other people, family, children etc., ...... Putting yourself first means you know that in order to help others you have to help yourself first. To make sure that when they need help you will have the strength, the words and the "energy" to help them.
You need to make sure that YOUR engergy level is up, that you take care of yourself physically, mentally, emotioanlly and Spiritually. Stop thinking that you have to exhaust yourself for others first. You aren't good to anyone if you are ill!!
I love it when Spirit gives me an analogy...
"How can you expect to feed others, when you have nothing in the pot"?
Taking time for just YOU.........taking time to refuel and feed YOU. When you look after you first, you will have all you need to put into the pot to feed the others. It's like going shopping.........but for your own mind, body & soul.
