Supporting the Heart of a Caregiver

December 12th, 2018 by Amanda Erickson

Self-care is not selfish. You cannot serve from an empty vessel.

Empty. Physically exhausted. Emotionally drained. Your brain is tired, your heart hurts.

Caregivers often sacrifice their own health to serve and love those who need consistent special care. These are family members taking care of a loved one; these are the front line health professionals such as CNAs and nurses.

A healthy body has balanced energy that flows through every organ, gland and cell. The heart and brain produce this energy, which is used for optimal function and health of the entire body. When the heart and the brain are exhausted, they can longer produce a balanced energy that flows throughout the body. This imbalance of energy causes dis-ease. Caregivers who run on empty eventually find themselves suffering from symptoms and syndromes that occur because their heart and brain are so exhausted.

Intentional care needs to be given to the energetic and emotional heart. It is the wellspring of life. An exhausted body craves junk food as it scrambles for energy, so support the heart with healthy fruits, vegetables and snacks throughout the day. Give it the healthy nutrients it needs to function optimally. Support and balance the heart and brain energy production with the nutrition and essential oils. Pray and meditate asking to be filled to overflowing with love and energy so it can pour into the lives of those being served. Love yourself, and accept help when it is offered.
