In Manifestation work, the term “Self-Care” is used constantly, and is often misinterpreted as pampering or self-enabling; but actually, it is one of the most powerful tools we have to improve our lives.

First, it must be understood that self-care, as in treating yourself to a favourite pleasure, enjoying hobbies, or just getting enough rest, is perfectly fine – as long as it is not used as escapism to avoid accountability for our own life.

Self-care can easily turn into a weapon for self-enabling, so we must always look for a good balance between giving ourselves tenderness and loving care, and keeping ourselves in check about what we need to do to achieve happiness.

Both are just equally important for your Manifestation to work, and one will not work without the other, because self-care is the vehicle (as the feeling of Love), and accountability is the goal (whatever keeps you in expansion).

Also, it is important to remember that when self-care becomes escapism, it is often rooted in trauma, in the kind of trauma that taught you that You are not worth the effort that success, health, and achievement take. That you will never get there anyway. That you don't have what it takes.

But you can choose not to listen.

When you take care of yourself – as loving self-care, and also as accountability and as making the best choices for your life – you are making an investment that plants a seed, every time; this seed will return manifested as abundance, health, and opportunity, simply because that is how one of the most important laws of Manifestation works.

You are telling the Universe: this is how I treat myself, and therefore, the only treatment I will accept. Any less than this is not acceptable. So, the more you do it, the better you do it, and the more consistent you are at it, the more seeds will manifest and return as blessings into your life.

You set the example first, and then the Universe follows, and not the other way around; magic needs you to manifest itself, so don't wait for things to change

until you have proved first that you have changed yourself.

You are the only thing you will ever own. You are your only reality. You are the place where you will live, forever. So, not only it is totally worth any effort, it's nobody else's responsibility, and no-one can do it for you. You will only harness the power that is equal to your level of responsibility towards your own happiness.

And remember, you are not in this alone. You have the Divine Source always within you, and you have people like me, who educate on this process and perform spiritual work, at your reach. To think that you must achieve everything on your own is another trauma-based belief; never be afraid to use any help around you, and go back to the books and articles that inspire you as much, and as often, as you need. There is no limit to your growth, to your success, or to the happiness and healing you can achieve!
