Self-Care and Burnout Prevention From Your Place of Grace
(3 John 1:2) ...."Beloved, I wish above all things that you may prosper and be in health, even as your soul prospers."
It goes without saying that we need to practice good self-care in order to be healthy and well enough to do all the awesome things that we are called and led to do. The reason why we as women sometimes become so worn out, so inundated, so over-extended and even burnt out is because we do not practice consistent self-care. It goes without saying that Jesus had far more stress, far more pressure, and far more responsibility than any of us and yet while he walked this earth in a physical body he lived his life from a place of love, grace, soundness, wellness, wholeness, personal power and balance. In Jesus' humanity when he walked on earth, he engaged people in a very focus, compassionate, powerful, tireless and relaxed way. Jesus had a physical body, just like you and me, that needed nourishment and rest and could only be in one place at a time since there are only 24-hours in a day. In his humanity, Jesus had personal needs like prayer, solitude, food, water, and sleep. At times he had to go away from the multitudes to be alone with The Father. Jesus lived in a rhythm of life that not only kept him free from burn out, but that also empowered him while living on Earth to unlock the kingdom within and that kept him full of grace and truth, and therefore able to give from his overflow rather than his internal reserves. In this workshop we will talk about how to practice proactive self-care and prevent burnout from our grace place so that we will have the energy and enthusiasm to do great work.
The Soul Fast Workshop: Building Self-Esteem and Emotional Wellbeing By Learning How To Conquer Counterproductive Thinking
What is a Soul Fast? A soul fast, unlike a food fast is where instead of abstaining from certain foods that you feed your body, you abstain from the unhealthy junk food like: self-doubt, self-loathing, inadequacy, worry, bitterness, despair, envy and fear of failure that we feed our hearts and our minds. The Bible stresses the importance of a prosperous soul…one that is well, whole, peaceful, anxious for nothing and joyful. In fact,(3 John 1:2) says, “Beloved, I wish above all things that you may prosper and be in health, even as your soul prospers.” This means that we were divinely designed to prosper spiritually, mentally, emotionally, physically and financially. But it’s hard to become all that we can be, live our very best lives and be true to ourselves, if our hearts and minds are saturated with negativity. Most people view fasting as a quick way to lose weight, like with The Master Cleanse lemonade diet. But a soul fast is not about losing physical weight; it’s about losing the unproductive mindsets, outlooks and attitudes that weigh us down in the spirit eating away at our purpose, prosperity, passion and peace. At its core, a soul fast is about being emptied of the negative and unhealthy aspects of self or ego, and becoming filled with more of God’s power, peace and wisdom. This workshop is designed to be used in conjunction with Cassandra Mack's E-Workbook, "The Soul Fast Workbook."
