Humility

Humility

Humility…wasn’t sure what to make of this when I got given the word to use today. In the dictionary the word Humility means ‘a humble condition or attitude of mind.’ And Humble means ‘having or showing a modest estimate of one’s own importance.’

Maybe it means I should be prepared to work in service of others without obvious personal gain. Mother Teresa was certainly a humble person. But, she was also very mindful. She knew for example, that when people go on and on about something; they draw that to themselves. She once said she would never attend a rally against war; but if they should ever have one for peace she would be there!

Maybe it means I should allow an unpretentious but confident air to surround me. That I can do. I can also live my truth lovingly. I can also love and enjoy what I can give and feel good about my place in ‘the big picture.’

I am always prepared to give of myself and my knowledge to others. This I do without question. Giving does not mean sacrifice. When you give, you can do so within your means, and it feels good. Sacrificing, on the other hand, does NOT feel good.

Alongside giving, I also had to learn to receive. This is monumentally important! For when we give, give and give, we sometimes don’t have anything left inside ourselves and then we need to stop and recharge our batteries, or else we surely become ill. Be aware of how much you do.

The other thing is that if you give, and you like doing that, as it makes you feel gratified; then you need to learn to receive. If you do not receive even a compliment from another graciously, then you ROB the other person of the gift of giving! Think on this…

You can lower the self importance of yourself when giving, or receiving; and this then leads you to be more humble…to truly practice humility.

Thanks for listening and applying this in your own lives.

Be aware.

Angel Blessings to All,
Barbara

About spirited13

Hi! I have been a qualified practitioner in the natural health field for over 28 years. I use Homoeopathy, The Liquid Crystals, Native American Energy Healing, EFT, Australian Bush Flower Essences, Bach Remedies, Ancient Essences, Body Psychometry and Face Reading, Iridology, Touch for Health, Light Life Tools, Feng Shui and Lifewave Patch Technology. I am a Master/Teacher of Usui Reiki, Angelic Reiki and Seichim. I also hold weekly Spiritual Wisdom meetings, with MIND-BODY-SPIRIT topics and Meditation and healing. I love helping people find their wellness within, because within us is where the real work takes place for us to find our health, and our happiness. For everyone that comes to see me different information will come depending upon what is needed from each modality that I currently use. All I really do is help you with your energy. We are all made of energy and when it is in a state of imbalance then we feel unwell. This can occur in our physical, emotional, mental or spiritual states. The key for many is to look for why things happen, not just a quick fix. Sometimes fears contribute to what is occurring. Know that it is okay to let go of things in our subconscious in order to move forward and I try to help you with this. The key is to look for what you have gained from this particular situation, so you no longer repeat it again. I appreciate all of you who are looking for that spark of whatever is seemingly missing or lost within you. You are all amazing if you will only believe in yourselves. Sending Many Blessings to All, Hugs of Light, Barbara xxx
