Change the World, Starting with Me…Poverty Suits No One Well!

January of this year was self care month, and I did that very well. February continues with self care, but this time it is focusing on the rebranding of my business to be “Jan Litterst”.

A long time ago, I threw the word “selfish” out of my vocabulary because I have traveled the spiritual path long enough to truly believe we all have a mission on earth and we cannot help anyone and make any changes in our lives, in other’s lives, our community, the world or the planet if we do not take care of ourselves mentally, spiritually, emotionally, physically, AND financially. It is not ok to have self-imposed poverty.

So I am on the path in 2020 to create the vision for me to create the momentum to change the world. And that is more than just paying the bills which so often is a goal of an entrepreneur. So I am paying the bills, but…My mission is to change money relationships which will change the world. Money rules our worlds, and not in a bad way. It is an important element in both our personal and professional lives. PROFIT is not a dirty word! It is ok to change the world with $$.

I am Self Caring! Where do I find love glasses?

Pink? Yes, pink, for I am looking for joy like pink cotton candy, hearts, and flowers. and now I am looking for love glasses! Yes, I am looking for joy, and I am realizing that I have not been doing self care for a long time. Time to change, time for JOY!

There have been trends in self care ever since I can remember. For me, my first memory is detoxing with trendy cleanses, better food choices, cleaner air, healthier relationships, better inner words for ourselves following. Yoga followed and more. All of this is good for you if you find JOY in it. But the purification trend has faded, and now we hear a lot about self care. I like the term self-care because we have to determine what we individually need. Now we hear about more sleep, healthier eating, restoring yoga, being grateful, journaling, and grounding. But JOY still eludes us.

And joy is what I am seeking to empower me, to connect me, and to share with other women of all ages. Yes, all of the modalities already mentioned can contribute to self care, but we need to find inner joy while we are seeking JOY!

So let’s start with compassion which benefits all of us in all ways, but starts with me. This is putting ourselves first, and it is hard for us to start a practice of compassion because for many us we are told that this is being “selfish”. Being selfish is really bad, we have been told. This is the starting point of self care. And the first point is to remove the word “self” and start with “CARING”. Caring is for all including ourselves.

Add motivation to caring. When you feel the need for caring, go with it, that is motivation. All you are doing in this first step is getting familiar with your needs and you allow yourself to open up to the need for caring…Open up to care for you! Open up to caring, open up for joy, and open up to loving yourself. Forget the word “self”, just do it!

Awe, Isn’t This Selfish?

Growing up Catholic, we were taught to be kind and not to be selfish, and we all did as much of what we could to follow the rule of “what would Jesus do”? And then we grew up, we understood what we were taught, and we felt guilty when we began to take care of ourselves: our needs and our wishes and our dreams. The guilt was there, and the guilt deepened when we had a significant other and when we had families. We loved all of the “family” in our lives, but we began to feel an internal rumble that was identified as “guilt”. But we put the guilt aside because we had loved ones to care for. Most of us became part of a two wage earner family out of need for fulfillment and for cash flow, and more guilt grew. The years went on, we tried, especially as women to do it all: family, work, community. And, yes, there were times and ways we tried to include self care. Successful? Sometimes, sometimes not. And now, no matter our age, we have thoughts, we have dreams, we have visions, and the guilt sometimes rears its ugly head! For all of these reasons, for all women of all ages, for all who are caring for parents, for all who have been single parents, for all who have not chosen marriage and family, for those who are young and wondering how to “have it all”, for every woman, I have created with the help of many women so far this summer AGELESS WOMEN OF WISDOM. All women, no matter the age, have wisdom. Sometimes, we just do not have the time to share it, but the wisdom is there to SHARE. Stay tuned and begin to believe that Self Care is not selfish.

SELF CARE IS THERE TO SHARE …ageless women of wisdom is there to help you SHARE…for YOU have Wisdom to SHARE! Please contact me to learn more janicelitterst@gmail.com or COMMENT on this page.

The Secret Within Us Is “Balance”

9D319F0D-5064-4ADD-8720-C848D1E6CE06

We are always seeking “balance” in money, food, politics, family, friends, and more.  Trying to find what is right for us all the while being told what everyone thinks is right for us.  It surrounds us in all of the media—printed, electronic, and social.  There are those who say the media makes up the news.  Do they?  Is what we hear real or “fake”?  Is what we read the truth?  After years of exposure to everyone else, how can we find our “personal” balance?  How do we express more of ourself when sometimes we cannot find our “person”?

There is an answer.  It is not easy.  It depends how far “down the rabbit hole” we have gone.  We may not know how we feel about “family”.  We may not know how we feel about “friends”.  In this era of Trump, we may be totally torn about “politics”.  “Food” is a battlefield of good, bad, and more.  And we don’t have a clue about “money”!

The answer is finding your intuition…if you even know what it is.

“intuition” is the ability to acquire knowledge without proof, evidence or conscious reasoning, or without any understanding how we learned it.  Intuition begins with the native knowledge we are born with.  We react to being wet, hungry or tired.  But all gets murky when we begin interacting with our environment, and that includes family, friends, politics, food, and eventually money!

If we can find our foundation in intuition, then we can begin to rebuild and eventually find our balance in all areas.  “Balance” means listening to what we learn from our environment and taking what is pertinent to each of us personally and allowing it to become a part of our being.  It is not easy.  And that is why I chose it as this week’s topic.  So many of us are so conflicted, but all is not lost.  Finding your intuition is necessarily selfish, but you must be selfish.  This is your life.  It is the only one you have.

Now, taking each area of your life, separately, and quietly drilling down to find your meaning in each area, through  quiet, mindfulness, and meditation and other quiet energy paths, you will find your meaning coming to you…slowly but surely.  From there, you will find what resonates for you…only then can you, and only you, determine what “balance” is for you.  You will know it when you feel it…feelings are another topic for another week.
