Are you taking care of everyone else first – It’s a Catch 22? HSP Series

Stuck in a Catch 22 - picture of umbrella, text take care of yourself

As women, we are often taught that we take care of everyone else first, and then if there is time and money left over, we take care of ourselves. What most of us don’t realize is that by doing that we are allowing ourselves to become de-energized – we are exhausted, possibly in pain, and lose the enthusiasm we once had.

When we are de-energized we actually become less able to take care of everything and everyone else.

Labor of Love or just Labor?

When you are tired, stressed and unable to take time to take care of yourself, you become less able to enjoy your life. You’re busy, you’re stressed, you just don’t have time to meditate, take a walk, get a massage, take that relaxing bath….you fill in the blanks with the enjoyments you aren’t able to fit into your life. The things that used to bring you pleasure – making a great meal, helping the kids with their homework, projects around the house or garden, etc. become just one more thing to get through. You spend all your time slogging through all your daily tasks, and you lose the sense of enjoyment and satisfaction and simply feel burdened.

The Catch 22 is that so often in trying to be there for others, we aren’t there for ourselves, and aren’t really there for others.

If you are able to take some time for yourself and practice self-care, you actually come back feeling refreshed and more able to feel the love and enjoyment that you desire. You also have more to give to those around you.

Are other people counteracting your decisions to take care of yourself?

Has this ever happened to you? You find and order a product that you know is going to help you feel better, physically, mentally, emotionally or best yet, like the BioElectric Shield, all three? Shortly afterward you mention it to your husband, who has none of the same issues/concerns and he insists that you cancel the order. You cancel and feel a great sense of loss. Yes, you have to keep peace in the family, etc, but there are times you truly need to step up and take control of your own “self-care”.

Recently a woman ordered a Level 2 Shield, then took the quiz and learned that she actually needed Level 3. She called and changed her order to a Level 3 as recommended due to her level of EMF exposure and sensitivity. She was really excited about it. Within 10 minutes I got an email from her saying she had to cancel the order.

The only times I’ve ever seen this happen is when a husband or partner got involved and threw a fit, and the poor sensitive women had no ability to withstand the onslaught. If she’d had a pendant she would have almost certainly been able to stand up for herself and her needs better.

Why don’t your friends and family believe there is a problem?

Unless they feel the same things you do, they probably won’t “get it”. It’s difficult when those around you aren’t able to understand what you need and what a difference a Shield might make in your life. We have a lot of excellent articles on our website and blog detailing the downside of technology as well as what it’s like to be an empath or HSP (highly sensitive person). Here’s one you might consider sharing “Why won’t my friends and family believe this is a problem?”  This article has a lot of information and links to other articles discussing the over 40 issues known to be associated with EMF/WiFi bombardment. It may help you to plead your case.  What previously was only an issue for “computer nerds” is now affecting almost everyone and yet most people don’t have a clue and seem to not want to know.

Staying centered in your own knowing and decisions

The Shield is strengthening your energy field and deflecting other people’s thoughts, emotions and energy. This has many benefits one of which is that oftentimes it’s easier to “hear” just your own thoughts and intuition. It’s not unusual for someone to call after getting the Shield saying that for the first time ever it’s easier to know what’s right for them and make decisions without outside influence.
