10x signs of self-sacrifice

Self-sacrifice is a modern dilemma, that we have carried through from the ancient past.  It is a belief system that is reinforced by the beliefs that:

  • ‘we all have a cross to bear’
  • it is better to give in, to keep the peace
  • that we are being kind, and protecting others feelings, by allowing them to inconvenience us in some way.
  • that it is somehow a good and spiritual act to save the world, and compromise our own happiness, by being a martyr.

What if we were in fact giving our power away, to the detriment of ourselves, AND others, by continuing to self-sacrifice….. by continuing to be a martyr?  For every martyr, there is a manipulator.  If we freely give our energy away for the wrong reasons, there will always be an opportunist who takes it, and then wants more.  This is usually not a conscious state of being, and from the spiritual perspective, is borne from the desire to feel better about ourselves, and make others feel better about themselves.  It is our deep desire to ‘save the world’.  Indeed, it can be a startling fact to discover about your own behaviour, and that of others, however, once identified and transformed within yourself, you can be that greater, more authentic version of yourself.  This also allows others to transform and be a greater version of themselves too.

Here are 10 signs of self-sacrifice behaviours, and the negative effects they can have on us:

  1. You give up your personal dreams because your family or friends don’t agree with them.  Eventually, this erodes your sense of worth and purpose in life, causing underlying disappointment, depression, anxiety, and low self worth.
  2. You work hours of unpaid overtime every week, so your boss’s business runs more smoothly, or to keep up with your excessive workload.  You are overwhelmed, stressed, angry, bitter and become ill.  Eventually, you may suffer burn-out.  The more you give, the more they will take.
  3. You put up with being bullied or mis-treated at work, for your pay packet.  You feel hopeless, victimised, angry, and with low self worth.
  4. You put the material wants of your children first, so that they don’t feel they have less than the other kids at school.  You feel they will only love you if you give them the material stuff, or that others will judge you as a bad parent.  This teaches them that self worth comes from material things, and fails to acknowledge their inherent gifts, abilities and uniqueness.  Your love, time and wisdom are the most valuable things you can give them, and allows them to be independent and create things for themselves.
  5. You buy your kids material items or give them unhealthy foods, so that they don’t complain.  You feel powerless, and frustrated, and it may contribute to financial scarcity.  It teaches the child that they don’t need to respect others, and that others are to blame for how they feel.
  6. You run your business 7 days a week, believing that your constant availability will keep your clients loyal.  Is the customer always right?  Not if it means you cannot be authentic.  By doing what you love, and placing boundaries around that so YOU have balance in your life, you can make the greatest contribution.  The right customers will always show up, and respect you for who you are.  Invariably, when we produce a product or service that the customer says they want, the ones who asked for it don’t show up, and they don’t buy it.
  7. You pack your partner’s suitcase, because he/she might forget something, which will cause further problems. This is one of many examples where we do things for the other to avoid further work for ourselves. Are you mothering your partner, so he/she doesn’t have to grow up and take personal responsibility?  This can create bitterness, hatred, conflict and overwhelm.  Your partner holds this power in this situation, rather than you both being empowered, and enjoying the benefits of personal achievement, AND even partnership.
  8. You allow ‘friends’ to stay with you until they overstay their welcome, and you say nothing, even when it costs you money and prevents you from enjoying the home space you have created for yourself.  While you are considering their feelings by saying nothing, are these friends you really want?  You cannot be responsible for how others feel, when you honestly state the truth.  Again, they own your power and take your energy.  You feel bad, and they continue to consume your hospitality.
  9. You continually give time, energy or money to a charitable cause, to the detriment of your own lifestyle or wellbeing.  You feel overwhelmed, used and perhaps financially compromised.  Are you in fact paying the wages of the administrators, and the problem, the cause, is continuing without resolution?
  10. You worry about everyone else’s problems and illness.  You feel bad for them and take on their anxiety, complaints, and heartaches.  Does this help them feel better, or solve their problems? You can guide them but you cannot change their experience.  Do this enough, and you will become physically sick.

Attitude is everything

If you willingly, and happily do the above things without judgement, and they are a positive contribution to your sense of wellbeing, then keep doing them… you are not a martyr, and quite possibly a saint!

However, if you are a pushover, choosing to suffer at the hands of others, then it is time to regain your power.  And if you are someone who always looks to others to make you feel happy, important and powerful, then you also could benefit by learning how to use your own power, not others.

We already have what we are looking for.  Each of us has unlimited personal power, divine gifts and unlimited potential for personal happiness and achievement.  To access it, we need to commit to changing our beliefs, habits and clearing the ‘biology of our beliefs’ from our DNA, spiritual and otherwise.  It takes daily work, awareness and commitment, but is a worthy and fulfilling journey.

If you are ready to stop being a pushover, and start using you voice in a more authentic way, with assertiveness, rather than aggression, then the time is now.  This is the path to inner peace, and our inner peace, shapes the peace of the new world.  The purpose of life is joy…. are you ready to embrace yours?

January Newsletter – Lay down new foundation

As I write this January newslettfullsizerender_3er, my temporary office at a cafe under beautiful oak trees seems to be the perfect location for this month’s theme!  I’m currently enjoying my third and final week of rest and rejuvenation in the alpine village of Bright, Victoria.  The clear, snow-fed Ovens River meanders through, the flow just prefect for tuning in to the earth elements.

The energy this month calls us to get grounded, to connect with nature, to appreciate and tune in to the life force energy, and cleansing powers of the magnetic field of Mother Earth, to feel aligned and balanced.

Then, from this place of being grounded, we can then ground our ideas into action and start laying the foundation for the next nine years.  2016 was a ‘9’ year, signifying completion of the last 9-year life cycle, and 2017 is a ‘1’ year – a beginning, and a laying of the foundation that you want for your life for the next 9 years.

FEEL and BREATHE IN the colour vibrations of nature…

  • the rich, lush greens – for physical healing and heart chakra balance
  • the earthy browns and reds of the soil – for base chakra balance and grounded presence
  • the bright rainbow colours of the native birds and flowers – to lift your spirits and invoke creativity, fun and inner child delight!

Crystals such as Tiger’s eye, Black Tourmaline, Carnelian, Jasper, Pyrite and red Calcite balance the lower chakras and assist you with grounding.

UPCOMING Projects

While some of this year’s ‘peace’ projects are still in the planning and development stage, I can tell you about one.  The INNER GURU Prayers for Peace Group is a Facebook group that I am about to establish on Facebook.  Each month, I will be sending prayer, divine blessings and healing energy to everyone who joins the group (or already belongs).  You can also add another persons name as a Comment, or a place, for healing to go to that person/situation also.    Group members may also feel called to add their own prayer intentions for others in the Group, thus creating a matrix of prayer energy emanating and connecting from various parts of the globe!  What else is possible?!   Link to Group

FULL MOON Reminder

The first full moon of 2017 occurs this Thursday night (12/!).  Tune into the wisdom of the Heavenly Beings, as your intuitive communication channels are clearer over the next few days.  Take a moonlight ‘bath’,and pop your crystals out to be cleansed and energised by the moonlight rays.  Enjoy the connection!

Blessings

Crystal Oracle Guidance – Xmas Eve 2016 to end of Jan 2017

How do we make best use of planetary and cosmic energies that will be influencing our lives over the next five weeks until the end of January 2017?  What will we need to know, in order to go with the flow?!

The intelligent Crystal (mineral) Kingdom forms the DNA of the planet, so is very much part of the Universal Energy matrix.  I turned to the wisdom of the Crystal Angels and produced the following Crystal Oracle Reading, for all of us, for the next 5 weeks or so.

To select the crystals, I used the beautiful ‘Crystal Guardians’ oracle cards, by Michelle Kingston – Author and Artist www.divinelightcentre.com.au,, and added my own intuitive insights.

CHRISTMAS EVE and CHRISTMAS DAY
CARNELIAN – it’s all about the belly! carnelian
– let go of what you can no longer digest!
– be kind to your digestive system and liver over this period.  Drink plenty of water and add lemon to detoxify.
– have the courage to let go of past conflict with family members – be gentle, AND remain your power.  Wander off and disconnect from their energy when you need to!  Like the lion, laze under a shady tree if the atmosphere gets a little hot!
– let your creativity flow, and have fun!

 

NEW YEAR’S EVE 2016 and NEW YEAR’S DAY 2017
AQUAMARINE – relax and enjoy!

JANUARY 2017 – WEEK #1
SUNSTONE – positivity and prosperity

you are gaining new insights and ideas, as you channel your higher wisdom

The Five Rs of December – a spiritual status check

Complete your 2016 year with a spiritual status check!

img_2967The month of December is a time to:

REVIEW your year
RECONNECT with your soul
REJOICE in your wins
RELAX your mind, and
RECEIVE your abundance.

As we draw near to the completion of the year of 2016, it’s a good time to ask, “What are the good bits I can carry with me from this year?  And, have I let go of the stuff I want to leave behind?”

I call this a Spiritual Status Check, and you can use this spiritual tool if you want to start next year with more clarity, direction and purpose.

REVIEW
Take some undisturbed, quiet time to centre yourself and review where you were in various aspects of your life at the start of the year, in relation to where you are now.  Notice your greater maturity, your achievements, your knowledge, wisdom and strengths.  How has your confidence and personal authenticity grown?  Note down the things that you still want to let go of, or the inexplicable blocks that you feel are holding you back.  Work with clearing this list yourself, or consider the effectiveness of seeing a Healer.

RECONNECT
Take quiet time to reconnect more with your heart and soul.  What is your purpose?  What are your heart’s desires.  What do you wish to create for 2017?  What plans and changes are you considering, to make 2017 more satisfying and rewarding to you?

REJOICE!
Congratulate yourself for all your achievements, tiny and big, this year.  Make a list of them and show it to someone who loves and appreciates you.  Realise that you are capable of more than you thought!  Reward yourself with a gift or special treat.

RELAX
Relax your mind, and go with the flow….. even if your body has to be physically busy!  Think less, and trust your intuition more.  Relax your mind, and your emotions will be calmer and your body filled with more ease. In this non-resistant state, you are in ‘receiving mode’.

RECEIVE
Stay connected with your Source, and receive the abundance you have been working towards.  Use this relaxed space to receive inner peace, guidance and clarity about your purpose, next steps, goals and intentions for the New Year – the start of a NEW CYCLE!

Prepare to launch year 2017 with fresh energy, confidence and gusto, and make it easier to keep the momentum going.

If you need help to clear blocks, or reconnect more at soul level, I can help you with personal Forensic Healing sessions via SKYPE or in person. For enquiries and appointments, please call me on 0403 018728, or email me at hellybeks@icloud.com.  I would be happy to assist and guide you further.
