Feeling indecisive, like you’re life lacks direction?
Struggling to “find yourself” and feel like you belong?
Wondering if you’ll ever get the clarity you seek?
Indecision is a symptom of much deeper issues regarding your relationship with your own Spirit, aka your “spirituality.”
And everyone has a sense of spirituality, especially skeptics and realists.
Watch this week’s 12-minute love letter video, the final part in our four-part Deep Dive series on the Power of Loving Yourself, to redefine spirituality and use it to love yourself at work today.
"What is my value?"
This week is week four of four in our deep dive into loving yourself.
The power of loving yourself and this week, the guides are going to have us talk about loving your spirit. Let's define terms a little bit, right out the gate.
What is a spirit? What in the world are we talking about? The spirit for the bounds of this conversation, we're going to understand as the resource behind your decision making processes in life.
It is the force that determines the path that your life takes, right? It is that resource behind how you make decisions.
That's what your spirit is, so for those of us you are religious, we understand to be the holy spirit. For those of us that aren't creative or consider ourselves scientific, same thing, that you can understand to be your creative spirit, your spirit of innovation, growth and progress, that sort of a spirit.
This is the fuel behind your decision making processes and when you're learning how to love yourself on another level, so that you can better love others, right?
We're filling our cup at the faucet, the resource that we need, so that we can then hand that cup or pour from a full pitcher to others to love on them, as well. Showing up in service and loving others, abundantly.
With that, this week in particular, when we're learning how to love our spirit, it's important to then understand what your core values are, especially when you're at work. Now, there's a very professionalism and all those kinds of corporate sort of language. Mission, vision, values that comes up for us when we think of, what do we value? But instead, I want you to think of when it comes to loving yourself, what do you value?
When it comes to your life, what do you value? When it comes to being loving, what do you value? Remembering that your spirit is the force behind your decision making process.
With that, this week in particular, we want to pick one value in particular that is loving to you. One that nourishes you. If we could choose a more concrete word, whether than just loving can sometimes be a morphosis for those of us who are not used to being loving to oneself, right?
We're used to being loving to others, so think of a value that would be nourishing to you, even if you want to pick nourishment. My nourishment is something that I value.
Me personally, my top values are, number one, love. Obviously. Number two is safety and number three is honor. Honesty for me falls underneath honor, so when I have something more vulnerable that I need to share to a team member or someone that I'm in an intimate relationship with, maybe family or my partner and so on, I think of my value of honor and that, for me, is loving toward myself first and that gives me the courage to then speak from the heart about topics that might be a little bit more vulnerable making or feel uncomfortable to bring up.
That value gives me the courage to make a decision with my spirit to allow the spirit of honor to come through me and create more honorable experiences. Are you getting the picture here?
That's loving towards me because I'm bringing that spirit into my awareness in my decision making, which then effects my behavior and how I show up to others, how I serve others.
If I come with a spirit of honor or spirit of love or spirit of safety and honoring my safety, others safety and so on and so forth. What would be your value? How can you, but we want to make this very specific, this week in particular to work. How can you honor your spirit or how can you bring your spirit into your work experience?
Perhaps it is honoring your religion. I'm putting a lot of my value of honor. Perhaps it is bring your spirit's desire to be religious or to glorify God in all that you do and bring that to your work experience.
How would you work? How would you show up? How would you speak to others if the force behind your decisions and your behaviors is, I want to glorify God in whatever I do?
Know this: Your Spirit is the force behind how you make decisions in life and #business. And spirituality is your relationship with it.
On the flip side, what if your value was, I value my health. My health comes first. How would you show up at work today if your value is, my health comes first? This is the one value that I'm going to embody today.
How can you allow that to come forward in your work day? How would you speak to people? How would you sit at your desk? What food would you choose to put in your body if that was your value that you were going to honor today, this week?
Whether you're going all week or just for today, what would be different about the way that you conduct your behavior and the decisions that you make if you made value based decisions?
The power and the self-loving, self-nourishing aspect of making value based decisions is that you become responsive rather than reactive to life around you. When we're reactive, things happen and all right, I got to put out the fire over here and oh, so and so needs me.
Okay, I'll do this and oh my gosh, what about this and da da da da and you're working yourself up spiritually because there's no anchor, there's no value anchoring you down on a spiritual level. Your decisions are flying off at the handle, they're reacting to all of the circumstances that are around you versus making value based decisions.
You're able to ground and then respond with wisdom to the experiences that are coming toward you so that your life, you're building by design in a wise and spiritually grounded way.
Value based decisions, that's the challenge for this week, in particular. The mantra of the week is, what's my value? Remember it's one. I know some of you do core desired feelings and stuff like that and you pick several and all of this. What one? Just one. Simplify it. I value simplicity. Let's all value simplicity right now.
Bring the spirit of simplicity so that you can be kind to yourself and one, what's my value?
The next time someone asks you something, the next time you begin your work day, the next time you sit down to eat, what's my value? That is your mantra. Today, in particular, or for this week, in particular. Whatever you're ready to commit to.
I'm hearing the oracle cards calling and energy. Talk about spirit. Fairies. Ding, ding, ding. Yay. Healing with the fairies, another Doreen Virtue deck. Thank you so much for donating.
This is one of over 20 decks that we have here at the dojo that our clients and students play with as well as my co-op members. Between seeing their clients, they're reading their own oracle card readings. I love it. You're welcome to play. My cards are very social.
Fairies, what do we need to know, this week in particular about loving our spirit? What value? Oh, this loud is coming forward. New opportunity, This is so powerful. Check it out. Gorgeous.
What I'm hearing in the energy to tell you about new opportunity for this week, in particular, is that you've been loving yourself and opening up to honoring and heeling and loving, nourishing and nurturing those parts of yourself that have been under loved for the last few weeks.
We've been at that together and because of that, sources taken notice. There's a new opportunity coming your way that you want to use your value. You're going to need to have a set of values or one guiding light that gives you enough anchoring to receive that opportunity.
If you don't have it, you're going to miss this opportunity and it's because you're got to anchor first in order to receive the level of opportunity that's coming to you this week, in particular. Maybe even today. We want to make wise decisions, ones that are responding to life with elegance , with wisdom, with grounding, allowing spirit to come through and wash through our lives, blessing rather than rushing through and feeling unloved, especially by ourselves. Slow down, ground, make value-based decisions so that you can receive the next level opportunity that's coming to you.
Comment below. Send me an email back.
What's coming up for you hearing all of this? What opportunity, have you recognized it yet? I'd love to hear about it and how did you ground and make a value-based decision in order to receive that.
