KAÜ /KAH-OO/ IS THE COMBINATION OF TWO SACRED SOUNDS.
It means the celebration of kindness. Taking kaü products is a form of kindness toward yourself. Honor yourself and all that you do for others by doing something kind for yourself.
KINDNESS TO SELF
We are taught to put others first, to show kindness first and foremost to others before we take care of our own needs.
The reality is, we can share a level of kindness to others far beyond what we currently have the capacity for only after we fill our own kettles.
We all know it, but we need a constant reminder: You can’t pour from an empty kettle. You need your kindness reserve replenished.
Instead of waiting around for kindness for others to show up and fill your kettle, start extending the kindness you desire to yourself.
Be a nurturing mother to yourself. Be an adoring spouse to yourself. Be a ride-or-die best friend to yourself.
Take accountability for your own happiness. Own your agency for self-kindness.
Simple acts of self-kindness make a big difference. Prioritize rest. Drink plenty of water. Eat something nourishing.
Once your kettle is full and you feel fortified, you delight in sharing kindness. You get joy from it. Kindness to others becomes a true form of self-kindness because it feeds your soul and expands your heart.
Sharing kindness can look like a loving deed, an empathetic ear, a compassionate conversation, or creating something beautiful you and others can enjoy.
