THE EPIDEMIC OF LONELINESS & DISCONNECTION
Years ago, I remember standing in my kitchen and crying.
I had everything. A beautiful loving family, amazing soul friends and yet still feeling a deep thud of disconnection and what I term 'soul homesickness'.
This deep yearning within me to feel that sense of home and love that I know exists beyond this realm ...unconditionally.
It was like a grief and an ache in my soul.
Now I know that it was me calling myself home. Calling myself to 'commune' with myself.
It was an ache that couldn't be soothed by being around people. In fact this made it worse. I would often feel lonely in a crowded room.
We often hear about this 'epidemic of loneliness', and how our brains are hard-wired for 'community'.
I believe that it isn't about racing out and joining clubs, as UNTIL you turn inwards and apply the own balm that you are craving to yourself first, you will always be left aching.
If you are a highly sensitive, heart-centered being, like me, you would definitely have had your sensitive heart shut down at some point in your life.
This often makes us disconnect from our deep feelings and not feel safe to be seen for who we truly are.
From my own experience, what I learnt is that when I stopped rejecting the parts of myself that I was holding in judgement like being so sensitive, being an intuitive healer, I felt like I was missing something. That was ME!
I became almost giddy with joy when I realised that all I so deeply desired was within me.
Self compassion, being witnessed, discernment about who I shared my heart with all were beautiful jewels that helped the process..
Now, I have fallen so deeply in love with my own energy, that everywhere I go, I am with my own best friend. Me!
I adore helping others to really deeply commune with their own heart. To be witnessed in love for the parts of themselves that they often judge and to become filled to the brim with their own love.
Magical and miraculous things come from this space......
