Having a hard time finding time for yourself lately because you're at work all the time?
Do you define yourself by going above and beyond the call of duty, even if it drains you?
Worried that you're spending more time at work than with your friends and family?
"Doing a good job" at work can be both a positive motivation in life and an addictive distraction from life.
The way we tell the difference is by how we feel on a day to day basis: fulfilled and balanced or frustrated and drained.
Watch the above 6-minute video to learn why we get addicted to work!
"I've been working here for years. I've never taken a vacation."
Are you a workaholic?
Source this week is sending healing energy to all the members of the TRIBE out there who are workaholics.
Your work ethic is at 110%, maybe around 200%.
Perhaps you define yourself by how you arrive before others and leave afterward, or as the provider of the service perhaps you define yourself for going above and beyond what your clients ask for.
You give them extra time. You spend time for free trying to help as many people as possible.
Don't worry, we're speaking to you with love, not to out you in a scary sense. Instead, let's take a look at this:
Could you perhaps be a workaholic?
If so, you may often wonder "When am I going to get to just hang out with my kids next?", "When am I going to get to just enjoy a vacation sometime?"
Or maybe it's one of those things that you brag about: "Ha ha. I've been working here for years. I've never taken a vacation."
Whoa! Heavy, right? If that's you, we're sending you love and this one is for you.
There's this sense of workaholism in our culture now. We have addictive personalities, especially if we are highly-sensitive, creative type individuals.
We want to completely and fully experience and immerse ourselves in the creative process, in the contribution and production process.
It is addictive to feel production and the birth of new ideas and projects happening, right? But that's where workaholism is most rampant.
We have a NEED to "do" something: "I have something to do. Give me something to do. The more I do, the better I am."
"The more I do, the more worthy I am as a human being; the more financial worth I get, the more that makes me worthy as a human being."
"The more social worth I get, and that makes me worthy as a human being."
"The more affection and attention I get, and that makes me worthy as a human being."
Or, "the more I make my parents proud or my family proud, the more that 'pride rush' I get, and that rush makes me worthy as a human being."
I'm hearing the angels saying workaholism is an expression of a soul scar that comes from being neglected.
At this age and stage in your life, if you're feeling workaholism consuming your self in your work, it may be happening because either you feel neglected by somebody or you have been neglecting something or somebody -- ahem, somebody like yourself -- in a big way.
It's a filler for the scar; it's a filler energy.
Whenever we have one of those addictive behavioral patterns it's to fill the soul scar, the hole.
A soul scar looks like a maelstrom; the energy is this sucking vortex.
In the Universe there's positive vortexes, but then there's the draining vortexes.
We're filling ourselves with work to make up for a sense of loneliness, frustration, a lack of self-worth or a lack of being seen, especially by those that we love.
Not being acknowledged by your mother or father, or not feeling intimately connected to your lover, or not feeling you have quality time or physical contemporaneous space with your children.
There's just this sense of isolation, and so we fill it with work in order to feel better about ourselves, right?
To create the sense of self-worth, we work hard.
In fact, working hard doesn't even necessarily mean the money is coming in, right?
It's very easy to make money. Money is everywhere. It's just energy.
But it's not about money, being a workaholic.
I'll have people say, "Oh, yeah, I'm on my grind. That's why I'm grinding every day. That's why I'm a workaholic, because I want money and I need money and I need to get more of it."
Sure it takes money to live in a developed country and take part in civilization. But you don't have to grind to get money, especially at a higher vibration.
In fact, the less you work hard, and the more you work smart, the more the money comes in abundance! 🙂
Stay tuned for part 2 of 2 next week!
In Love and Light,
Just for Today...
Commit to taking a full lunch break away from electronics, and to leaving on time from work today, by setting alarms on your cellphone to keep you on track.
Make sure that these time commitments are non-negotiable; meaning, you can't negotiate with YOURSELF about it when the time comes.
