Loneliness gets to some more than others. But why it hangs on isn't always apparent when read by traditional medical eyes. In my practice and workshops I've been struck by how many sensitive, empathic people who I call "emotional empaths" come to me, lonely, wanting a romantic partner, yet remaining single for years.
Watch your diet. Notice what foods feel good, which do not. Your body will tell you what it requires. Usually, denser foods-meat, chicken, fish--have more of a grounding effect than grains, vegetables, or fruit. I'm not a big meat eater but if my body announces, "I need a hamburger," I will devour one. Listen to your body's signals.
There comes a time on our spiritual journey when we run out of road, we have to admit that we cannot go any farther and we have three choices, to quit, to figure out how to continue on the current road or to find a new road. Each choice has its benefits and drawbacks, one is not better than another. What we choose depends on how much awareness we have and whether we are ready for the new road, which could be anything from a completely different road to a new mindset to a new way of looking at ourselves.
Intense happiness and depression are close to each other. There is a thin line separating those states of being. I’ve always walked on that line in my life. To balance both can be quite a task. I can be really ecstatic one moment and a minute later I can feel like crap. Sometimes I experience both flows at the same time.
We are in the pause between heartbeats. We are in the place between the in and out breath. We are learning how to connect with the intangible. My favorite musical group, Pink Floyd, expresses my feelings of what is occurring at this time. We can no longer turn away from our own suffering or that of humankind.
Most of you reading this are already aware on some level of the change upon which your planet and those inhabiting it are undergoing at this time. Change has been taking place for a long time now (one could argue successfully that change is a constant state), but the degree and intensity of change has been on the increase and is now something that many of you can sense or feel on a number of levels. We would like to offer our encouragement in the support of these changes as well as some practical advice on what to expect and how to gracefully move through this time
"Every thought you think and every word you say is an affirmation for your future." - Now think about. Really think about it. If each of us spent one entire day noticing our thoughts and words, chances are we'd be a little concerned about the future we're creating. For most people, negative thinking and talking is a way of life. But not anymore, thanks to Louise Hay.
We see that you sit at an intersection of whom you once were and who you shall become. You read the roadmap of your past actions and reactions and expect to find the future in those schematics. You see where you have fallen and none have picked you up. You see where you have allowed yourself to be emotionally strangled into a place of limited breathing and limited acceptance of air into your lungs. You wait for the world to exhale so that you can breathe in what it good, what is grand and what is your purpose. The carbon monoxide of other’s thoughts and negativities waif through the air that surrounds you so you breathe shallowly, you inhale less possibility.
Is not life a great thing you have as you walk through the world? Just think of it, you have life every day, day and night, day in and day out, and the life you have is yours. You go with it, and it goes with you.
