Are you honoring yourself?

This week’s Sacred Path Card that was pulled for “Wednesday Wisdom” is Sacred Space. This is an important philosophy of the Native Americans that reminds us that everything has a space that deserves respect.  We all have our own territory and we need to respect the territory of others, as well.  By doing so, we can live in harmony.

IMG_20150715_161814474In humankind, this not only extends to our habitat, but to our possessions, feelings, and our bodies. Feelings and opinions make each of us unique and, therefore, need to be respected. We don’t have to agree with other people’s opinions, but there is no need to defend our personal right to be.

The Sacred Space card tells us to demand respect for ourselves.  We need to be able to say “no” and set boundaries so that others will not take advantage of us.  People will treat us the way we treat ourselves.

Watch this video as Kathleen describes this in more detail.

Remember to, not only treat yourself with respect, but the Planetary family, as well. If you allow others to abuse you, you may want to look at your fear of being disliked.  We are not here to be liked by everyone; rather, it is important to be able to live with yourself.  Happiness begins within.

Respectfully yours,
