Service to Self and Service to Others is a concept that reflects the combined awareness of being in Service to US!
Service to Us is a concept and understanding where each of US takes personal responsibility of our words, thoughts, emotions and deeds. This then supports the experiences of how we choose together to support the whole environment where we create interactions with one another, creating win-win-win relationships and interactions!
We are creating and introducing a new concept for humanity to consider for the well-being of all – Service to Us!
The key aspects of “Service to Us” is in recognizing that you are offering love, nurturing and compassion to yourself and the other party at the same time. What this means is that sometimes… You are in Service to Yourself, meeting your needs as you need. Then sometimes, You are in Service to Others, supporting them in meeting their needs. Then inside this concept, also known as a context, you are collectively and collaboratively creating a healing space of Service to US! The Healing space of Service to Us lingers in the energetic space of creating joyful amounts needs being met with ALL involved!

Many times we have confusion around the ideas of what it is to be “In Service”…
This is fascinating that people are looking to volunteer or give services (time and energy) to others, versus the idea of giving service to self. When we consider the words “service to self” many times we feel they are collectively vain, selfish or greedy when in fact that may not be true. When we are exploring service to self, we are really talking about nurturing and taking care of oneself. When we take care of our self, and our body feels full and our needs are met, we have much more time and energy to support the concept of service to others.
What we propose here is to bring in the concepts of Service to Us, which means “I take care of me at the same time I take care of you” and “You take care of you, while you take care of me”. These concepts are not mutually exclusive. Let’s give a short example of this:
Annie’s 5-year-old son wanted her attention when she had an appointment with Ashley to write this blog. We agreed that we could all get our needs met by playing a game of bingo over video conference and after he won the game, he felt his needs were met, was content to play independently. This was accomplished while Annie called the bingo numbers and set up a document on her computer and Ashley researched other aspects to complete the article.
Multitasking is not a requirement, but it did help to meet everyone’s needs in that moment. Some people have multitasking as a skill and is something that all people can do without creating overwhelm in the brain and nervous system. Mother’s tend to watch their children while cooking dinner, and an example of a mother multitasking might mean that she sets them up with a fun activity near her in the kitchen while she preps and cooks the evening meal.
7 Ideas On How You Can Be In “Service to Us”
- Go to the spa and bring a friend with you
- Give bath time for the kids and clean the bathroom at the same time
- Be at the beach and bring a trash bag to clean up litter in your area before leaving
- Volunteer at a soup kitchen while having lunch with the community
- Learn carpentry skills while volunteering with Habitat for Humanity*
- During daily meditation, invite your kids or family members to join you in a group meditation
- Taking kids on a longer walk to a neighborhood park to achieve exercise for yourself
You can have your needs met while you meet the needs of others. It does require you to think through the win-win-win situation, but after a while, you will figure out how to do it all and have enough time of the day to sleep and rest.
When we move in to the awareness of Service to Us, our perspective changes and adjusts to meeting everyone’s needs, easily and effortlessly with flow and grace.
