It's Radical as it's not a quick fix, or a denying of feelings, or a positive vibes only...vibe. It's a commitment, and an all-layered approach.
Some focus on the physical... Diet, exercise, massage, breath work, movement.
Some focus in the conscious... Talking, mindset, journaling, goals, boundaries, making choices.
Some focus on the subconscious... NLP, hypnotherapy, affirmations, archetypes.
Some focus on the spiritual...belief systems, meditation, yoga, putting it out to the universe.
All these things are wonderful in their own right. And working on one area invariably benefits another.
What's radical about my approach is that we consciously and mindfully work on ALL these four PILLARS of SELF-CARE!
So that any positive changes you make in your life are wholistically integrated in a physical, mental, emotional and energetic way.
So ALL aspects of you are important and involved.
It's so much more effective and a greatly underestimated way of making change.
For example, the effect of stress is held - sometimes for years - in the body, mind, and energy field. When it is released and healed physically, mentally, emotionally AND energetically, any transformation that takes place to move you towards your goals, happens in a mind, body and soul level. It's more integrated, more embodied, more whole, more permanent.
That is true holistic change, and it's why Radical Self-Care is so important for the bigger picture in our lives.
