Listen. Because listening’s important:
Hi and welcome to the Re-Enchant Your Life reminder.
Your sacred pause in the day where you’re encouraged to take a moment to stop and tune into your inner wisdom and become present, so that you can reconnect to your personal power and confidently embrace who you’re becoming, as you Re-Enchant Your life and create the change you truly desire.
Today you’re being reminded that you need to meet your own needs.
Looking outside of yourself for someone to know, or guess, what you need, waiting for someone to rescue or fix you or your situation, will just leave you anxious, frustrated and reliant on others for your own sense of inner peace.
It’s time to get clear on what you need.
This may mean asking for what you need.
It may include getting help and support from others.
But it always starts with you getting clear on what you need and then asking and doing what it takes to get it.
Meeting your own needs, is about knowing yourself well enough that you know exactly what you need.
And it’s about recognising that your needs change.
Your needs can change throughout the month, the year and when dealing with certain situations. Get to know yourself, your needs and how they change.
Meeting your own needs is about honouring your need for rest and not just trying to keep going.
And it’s also about taking inspired action.
It’s about doing what you know is right for you, even if it doesn’t make sense to those around you.
Most of all, it’s about showing yourself love, compassion and kindness.
In this very moment, just pause, and take a breath. As you acknowledge your own needs.
Today’s SHEro Action:
Today’s SHEro action is to get clear on what you need.
What do you need today, right now?
How can you be kinder and more compassionate to yourself?
Do you need to set clearer or firmer boundaries?
Do you need to say ‘yes’ or say ‘no’ to opportunities or other people?
Do you need to rest or take action?
Pause, and take a breath. As you get clear on what you need right now in this moment.
“I honour my own changing needs”
I’ll see you tomorrow for your daily reminder to Re-Enchant Your Life with me, Rebecca-Anuwen,
In the meantime, enjoy getting your needs met as you walk Your SHEro’s Journey!
Many of my clients tell me that they feel frustrated and resentful, they often feel it’s due to their current circumstances or they may even feel this way towards one, or some, of their relationships. But when I ask them ‘what they need right now’, they are less certain of the answer.
People aren’t mind readers.
It’s not fair on them or yourself for you to expect other people to know what you want or need.
If you find yourself getting upset, frustrated or resentful, at a behaviour, or an action (or lack of action), give yourself a moment to pause, and ask yourself ‘What do I really need right now?’.
The chances are it will be about connection.
And the irony of this is, in this moment you are probably least connected to yourself too.
Other areas that you may be lacking having your needs met could be around your physical and emotional well-being, your need for intimacy, play, peace, sovereignty, purpose, meaning and contribution, or self-expression.
When you can work out what it is that you truly need, and in what are of your life you need it, you can then take responsibility for yourself and your well-being.
As you get to know yourself and your needs better, it becomes easier for you to speak up for yourself and ask for what you want and need, and to share what you think and feel.
When you can have this level of understanding around yourself, all your relationships, including the one with yourself, become much more fulfilling.
