Staying Connected in a Time of Separation
We are never separate. We are all one. Even if our perception is that of separation, even if we are forced into isolation, we are never separate. We are connected energetically to each other and to all things. As if an invisible string is threaded from each of us to everyone else and everything else. This is very important to remember, especially now. Especially for those who are feeling completely alone. You are never alone.
It is a time for us to stay connected to ourselves, our souls, the universe/God/Source and each other. A time to go within. To meditate and to connect with our hearts. To venture into nature and connect with mother Earth, even if only in our own backyards, balconies, rooftops or open windows. Breathe in fresh air. Feel the sun on your skin. Listen to the birds singing wherever you are. I know that one of the gifts of this time is that I can actually hear the birdsongs clearly now as the noise of cars, planes, trains and machinery has all but vanished where I live. It is truly remarkable and beautiful.
The sky is bluer. The air is cleaner. I walked outside the other morning and I could smell one of the neighbors making pancakes. I have never experienced this before. Being sensitive to energy, I can feel the shift in mother Earth. She is enjoying this respite from all of the pollution we humans create, one of which is constant noise. The animals that live near me are also changing their behaviors. They are moving around more freely, with less fear. There is a feeling of peace permeating mother Earth now.
On the other hand, many of us are living in fear. This is not only unhealthy, it is unnatural. We were created from love and fear is the absence of love. I would suggest that you take some time away from the news. Take time away from social media. Put down your smartphones and turn off your computers. Give yourself a respite. Even if only for a few hours or one day. See how you feel when you are not being bombarded with fear. Be quiet. Be peaceful. Meditate. Pray. Go within. Connect to your heart, your soul, your higher self. The universe and your soul reside within your heart.
We have been taught to always look outside of ourselves for everything. For praise, acceptance, love, reassurance, the list goes on. Everything we need is contained within us. Everything. Go within. Take this time to really connect with yourself and learn who you really are. Why are you here? What is your purpose? What is your soul calling you to do? The answers to all of these questions are within each and every one of us. Our hearts hold all the answers because we are spiritual beings having a human experience.
We are made of energy. Our souls are pure energy. which is eternal. Quoting the great physicist Albert Einstein, "Energy cannot be created nor destroyed, it can only be changed from one form to another."
Remember this -- we are all connected. We are taught to believe that we are separate. We are not. We are one.
Many blessings and much love to you all.
