In today's message, I was shown the image of a peacock, and I heard the word, 'Crown'. Then, I took a closer look and saw the beautiful crown on the peacock's head. When I asked about the deeper meaning of this message, I understood that we need to treat ourselves like the king or queen that we truly are.
But we often forget to look out for our own well-being. In our society and cultural conditioning, we tend to put others first and ourselves last, neglecting our mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual health. It's good to remember that without replenishing ourselves, we can't really be helpful to others. After all, we can't give what we don't have.
What does it look like to treat ourselves like royalty? Well, for one, we need to treat ourselves like we would our own best friend. How about giving ourselves that love, nurturing, encouragement, care, and a big dose of compassion, just like we would give to a loved one. How about following our heart's desire and delving into our passions?
When we nurture and honor ourselves, we have a huge reservoir of love and kindness that we can, then, share with others.
