Self-Care for You, Reflexologist
When you look at your calendar for the coming week…where are YOU on the schedule? If you are not on the schedule, you are not doing the basic self-care things things to protect your career. Self-care is the difference between a two-year career as a healer and a twenty-year career as a healer.
You are the healer. You join the professional organizations. You pay your taxes. You make sure your office is “just right”. You take continuing education classes. In short, you do the things necessary to protect your business.
But, what about you: your body, your spirit, your emotional strength, your thoughts? Where are they lined up here with the bills and the available appointments, and the marketing activities?
For many healers, body workers this is the most difficult thing to do on the entire list. As reflexologists, we’re accustomed to give, give, give. And, we enjoy giving. Obviously we enjoy giving or we would never have taken even the first class.
The bottom line here is that you commit to your own private, inner, personal wellness when you receive a weekly session. You also set an example for your client partners.
Things you can do!:
Begin by filling your spiritual tank. Schedule a session for yourself each week. Every week. Do something. Get a massage. Get a Reiki session. Schedule a session with a shamanic healer. Try out that new chiropractor who just moved into your neighborhood.
Do something! The important thing is to get on someone else’s table at least once a week.
Personally, I receive an hour-long Reiki therapy session every week…no matter what. I also receive a reflexology session every week. The work I do the rest of the week is much better for this hour which I invest in myself.

In 1513 Juan Ponce de Leon went exploring for the fountain of youth in what is now Florida. He found it and it exists. A branch of it is probably at a fitness center in your community. I found one in my community. It’s called the Fitness Connection and is on Albany Avenue in Kingston, New York.
There is a branch of the Fountain of Youth within reach of you. Can you name one? Do you use one? Regularly?
Being tuned into the Fountain of Youth is important. Don’t ever mistake this. But, it’s also important to be healed. The quality of your life will be much better when you can forgive those who injured you in some way. Forgiveness opens the door to healing.
Without forgiveness, we go through our daily life carrying anger, blame, fear, guilt, hurt, regret, resentment, revenge, sadness.
Getting rid of negative baggage can change your life for the better.
Begin to release this negative baggage by listing the people in your life who you need to forgive. Include yourself in this list if you blame your self for things as well. (Don’t we all?)
Now, spend some time each day forgiving those who need forgiveness. You are forgiving people for yourself…nothing more. You know that when you offer forgiveness, miracles can occur.
Don’t worry about the person anymore. You are releasing this person’s energy into the universe. You are releasing this person’s karmic connection to yourself. You are cutting the cords which have been binding you together.
Healing you never expected will take place.
How does forgiveness happen? How can you make this work for you?
Sit for a few minutes in a quiet place and offer forgiveness to each person individually:
“I offer forgiveness to ………………………….. I forgive you for …………………………………..
Now, I am free and you are free, too. I release you to your divine plan of life. Everything between us is cleared up, now and forever.”
When you have forgiven everyone you can remember, go into your past lives and offer forgiveness to those who need it:
“I offer forgiveness to everyone in my past life who has damaged me in some way. I forgive everyone for whatever he/she did. Now, I am free and you are free, too. I release you now. Everything between us is cleared up, now and forever.”
These forgiveness meditations may take more than a day. Actually, they may take several weeks or even months. Don’t worry about this. Take whatever time is necessary. Forgive a person or few persons each day when you have a few moments.
As you do this, notice how you feel when this happens. Notice how much better you feel with each meditation. Notice how much better you look. Notice how much younger you act. Notice how much excess weight you are losing.
You may not observe any changes immediately. However, you will begin to see yourself, your environment, and your world improved, healed, more beautiful.
As you forgive people and release them to their divine plans…
You will feel better.
Your vocabulary will change.
Your thoughts will be positive.
You will feel free.
You will feel light.
Replace the negativity with love.
Bring love alive in your life.
Eat, sleep, and breathe love.
