Why Self Care?
Transformation Magazine|January 2017

You have a miraculous body. You possess a powerful mind with rich emotions. You are a timeless being of energy/ spirit/awareness.

Mark Pitstick

Your essence/soul/consciousness is visiting earth because of the many exquisite opportunities for service, adventure, growth and enjoyment. Further, your essence came into this world clearly knowing that:

1. life on this planet would be difficult at times

2. you have everything you need to meet all life’s challenges/changes with style

3. when balanced, your body-mind helps your inner light to always shine brightly

4. you have special gifts to share and purposes to fulfill

5. assistance and guidance from Universe/God/Source is always available

6. your time on earth is a totally safe and magnificent adventure amidst eternity

You are a wise, infinite, special and powerful being. Irrefutable proof—clinical, scientific, religious/spiritual, and firsthand experience in nature—clearly shows that your essence came from the Light/God/Creative Energy. When your physical body dies, your real self will return to its Source.

While on this planet, you can remember this and live accordingly—including optimal self-care—or not. Whether you do or don’t greatly affects the quality of your earth-journey.

Please re-read the information above and let all that settle in for a moment. Then, take a deep breath in and out and consider the following question.

Given this vast and varied evidence, do you think that your consciousness/energy/spirit came to earth to:

A.) Be depressed, fatigued, overweight, in pain, overwhelmed, disappointed, sad, unsuccessful and inactive? And then, after a life that falls short of your dreams, to move on after a death that few people notice or care about?

B.) Be happy, healthy, energetic, peaceful, successful and fully engaged in a rich, purposeful life? And then, after living the life of your dreams, to move on while others say “Bravo! Well done! We’ll miss you greatly but we celebrate your graduation and look forward to seeing you again!”

If you chose (A), maybe you should read the above again. But if you picked (B), you can you make that your reality.

So, looking back at your time on Earth to date, how are you doing so far?
