No matter what you do, you still feel tired
I thought it was sleep deprivation making me tired
I used to think that I was tired because I didn’t get enough sleep. After being deprived for many years due to a busy life, children, snoring and shift work, I adapted to the constant heavy dragging that lurked beneath my joyful presence in the world.
I tried changing my diet which had some effect but nothing significant or constant. And even when things did change a little, and I could get 8-9 hours uninterrupted, I still felt weary.
As a medical professional I considered all the basics of anaemia, sleep apnoea, thyroid disease and even a more sinister cause.
My physical body was fine.
I was tired because I wasn’t living a life in alignment with my soul
After much soul searching, and noticing myself experiencing feelings of hopelessness, sadness, anger and even fear, I realised about how much of my everyday life I was doing things I didn’t believe in, nor feel aligned to.
I was encouraging medication for normal sadness, eating animals for pleasure, and being an over consumer of ‘things’ because it seemed good for the economy.
The game changer was when I discovered the term ‘moral injury’ which shares similar symptoms to PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder) such as tiredness, depression, and burnout. This term was initiated when soldiers killed other humans, knowing it was morally wrong but did it anyway; for many reasons including defending freedom. It’s heavy stuff, but it connected the dots for me.
It was my soul that was tired.
Create a new inner world and feel the difference
For me the switch to teaching natural medicine over pharmaceuticals has made all the difference to living a life that feels joyful and aligned.
Each day I check in with my head and heart and adjust my thoughts, feelings and actions where necessary to create a new inner world that feels lighter and more energised.
Feeding my soul
Being a part of the Virtual Women’s Village feeds my soul and actually creates energy in my space. I am guided into seeing, doing, feeling and being in alignment with my soul purpose. Perhaps this is something that could help you too?
In kindness and love,
You deserve to be nurtured the way you nurture others
The members of our Virtual Women’s Village know what it’s like to be apart of a truly safe, loving and nurturing sisterhood.
Every day, women are re-claiming their lives piece by piece to remember who they really are, before they got crazy busy and lost in the never ending ‘to-do’ lists and demands of ‘life’.
What are you yearning for? What’s that something ‘more’ that’s nagging deep inside you?
We all have access to this knowing, but often we need a little support to find it. Reach out, take our hand and let’s find out together.
