Are you a recovering people pleaser? Discovering how to set energetic boundaries was a total game-changer!
The moon is in Aries, what better day for this topic! Set fire to the belief that you have to people-please
I have spent so much of my life thinking about others before myself. Being “nice” can often make you the target for others to take advantage. Since the age of 13 I have worked in some form of service industry. I learned that the customers are always right, and service recovery is key if you want to be successful in business. As I agree all of this is true, it also doesn’t leave a lot of room for boundary setting. Setting boundaries was not a topic growing up. In fact, I can’t think of a time in my early childhood/adulthood ever knowing that setting a boundary was OK, or even what that meant or looked like. I always assumed I had to make sure the other person was ok before myself.
Fast forward to many years of debilitating anxiety. I spent YEARS thinking this was just the way life was for me and that my nervous system was always going to be anxious and that was that. False.
Since I have started down the energy healing path, I have learned so many easy tricks to protect my energy field and allow more control of what energy comes in and goes out. Trust me when I say, I would have never imagined energy healing and learning how to set my chakra system was going to be the ticket out of my looping anxiety.
I no longer spiral into a panic attack when I want/need to say no or set a boundary. So many times, before when I didn’t know how to say no, I would lie awake all night trying to formulate a nice way I could say no or maybe figure out a way I could say yes and no at the same time. The monkey mind is a powerful thing if it’s not being properly managed. There are tools to create a healthier path for your nervous system and mental health.
