Taking care

Here is a message from the tiny Buddha that is relevant for all of us at some point. We all have given so much and sometimes more of ourselves then possible, by caring about others. This includes putting ourselves last in the process of it.

We have given to a point that has left us feeling exhausted and worn. To a point that made us so tired and even overwhelmed at times. Mentally drained, it’s a feeling as if the life was literally sucked out of you. There are times we try so hard to help another that we forget and not immediately realize the toll it can have on us.

This is a reminder to do the best you can to keep a healthy balance. For it is an admirable thing that your heart is so big and loves to help whenever it can, but it also needs love and tender care and can’t give all the time. Sometimes you have to listen inward and tend to your own needs. Not because you don’t want to help, but because you are no help to anyone unless you are well yourself.

How do you do that, especially if you are an empath? I know, your compassion is so great and you care so very deeply, aren’t you. How could you not! It’s the core of your big heart and all it has ever known. As an empath you absorb the energies around you, through the people you engage with and the situations you find ourselves in. Being compassionate and helpful is a given for an empath, but taking on and owning the energies that don’t really belong to us is something to be learned and to be separated. Bringing awareness to why you feel drained will help you determine if it is your energy or the result from encountering a situation or someone else’s low. Awareness of your thoughts and emotions are the key to the power of now and will help you separate these highs and lows.

Namaste 🙏🏼


We are the co-creators of our life and the time is now. More than ever are we needed to support Mother Earth and each other. Together we discover and explore our unique gifts in times of strengths, in times we lean on each other, and in times when we learn from each other. This blog started as an outlet and what I ultimately called my “Warriors Journey.” It was a way to document the ups and downs of my life, sharing my hardships as well as my successes. It showcased the struggles, but more important the ways of how to overcome them. Although we are warriors each and every day, I realized that having to be a warrior, comes from a place of pain. I decided to rename this blog, and “Phoenix Rising” now stands for the story of overcoming such a painful place. My motivation for this blog hasn’t changed and I hope to share inspiration and hope, to create a sense of belonging, a space of being heard, and connecting with like minded beings who instill a sense of oneness. We are never alone, and we are unstoppable in the pursuit of what sets our soul on fire. Who I am in a nutshell... 
I am an energy healer and Reiki Master. I am surviving a chronic disease that I’ve sent into remission three times since my initial bout, 15 years ago. I continuously challenge the status quo and by doing so I change my stars. I am a believer that anything is possible. I am a hopeless romantic and I believe that true love exists on various levels. I am an optimist that will always see the glass as half full. I am a dreamer, believing in endless possibilities. Not even the sky is the limit. I have jumped off of the hamster wheel, and I am writing a new chapter. I am chasing my Nirvana to support my most authentic self. This is my story, I am that Phoenix and I am rising from the ashes. Namaste 🙏🏼💙🦋

  1. You are right, that empathic souls need to think in their own energy too, Rhapsody 🙂
    Another thing is, that sometimes we wish to help others so much, than we take away their own way of learning to take care of themselves. Sometimes it is fine just to listen to others and then let them find a solution, as will be the right one for them. This can be difficult to do, but it is a help to the other ones too.
    Much love to you ❤

  2. How on earth do you do this??? EVERY time I need something, you know what it is and put it where I can find it. Thank you. I am looking out on a calm lake, golden leaves caught in evergreen branches, and breathing in the reflection of beauty in front of me. Moments of rejuvenation in a week of WTH??? Blessings to you, my good friend! oxoxoxoxoxo

    1. I think we are all going through the same cycles my sister and I have always felt deeply connected to you. You’re a special person in my life.
      The other day I felt sick, nothing particular, just not well feeling at all. The next day my cousin told me Mom wasn’t well and they even had to call the doctor overnight. She is better now and so am I. Weird and I truly think that somehow I can channel those energies. It has happened a few times before now. I hope to talk to her soon and it’s been three weeks.
      Sending much love and blessings to you and a giant hug. Xoxoxoxo

      1. That’s good to hear Kris and while yesterday was an expensive day (I still have to pay) and my car needs a new clutch and head gasket, today is better and I got to talk to Mom the first time in three weeks.
