You poor little thing...

The angels message reminds of a life-changing moment I had several years ago. I was dating a good man but one who needed to become a bit more responsible. At the time I met a wonderful psychic. She was a gorgeous woman of color, very self-assured, compassionate, and totally blunt. She took one look at me, shook her head from side to side, and nailed me:

"Mmm Mmm. You poor little thing," she said.
"Always givin' in the hopes you gonna get some back."

I went home and cried my eyes out. She was right. I gave and gave and gave and gave, and often felt sorry for myself wondering why no one would give to me when I gave so much to them. What I didn't realize at the time is that I did not treat msyelf the way I wanted others to treat me!

What a revelation!! The universe always reflects back to you the love you show yourself. When you give yourself a little time you are gifted with greater ease in your life. When you take care of your own needs, you get blessed with abundance of time or money to share. When you honor your own heart, you have a gracious abundance of love from which to give.

Years ago when I worked all hours of all days, I gave good readings. Now that I take care of myself, the messages can be powerful and profound. God can get through more information when my mind is clear.

Years ago I bought gifts for everyone else, helped people with their dreams, and bailed people out of their messes frequently. Now I don't enable others but I do encourage and support them in being self-sufficient. I give to my friends when it is a joy, and I contribute to worthy causes as well. I support my dreams of helping the masses to know they are loved. In taking care of myself I can give more.

I was asking God for inspiration last week. I could NOT get motivated to work on any of my book projects. So I bailed on my office work this week, and went for an 8 mile hike instead. My soul NEEDED a walk in nature to clear my head and make room for more. Sure enough I came home to find a call on my phone asking me to speak at another large conference next May. While I was taking care of myself, God was working behind the scenes. Now I can share the angels' wisdom with MORE people. This has been my prayer.

So try taking care of yourself FIRST then give when your cup runneth over. You will be surprised how much more you can give.
