Feeling lonely lately?
Frustrated because you feel alone in your problems?
Longing for more love and companionship?
Loneliness can actually be a Dark Gift from Spirit. A "Dark Gift" means the gift of learning and mindset shifts that come only through trials and experiencing difficulty.
The feelings you have are in your heart for a reason, and loneliness--once you understand it--is meant to heal your life.
Watch the above video to learn how to find greater love in your loneliness!
"Negative emotions like loneliness, envy and guilt have an important role to play in a happy life; they're big, flashing signs that something needs to change." - Gretchen Rubin, The Happiness Project
Pause for a moment.
Close your eyes, and feel into any loneliness you may be feeling or still holding in your spirit right now. Notice what it feels like...
Perhaps you feel an ache or gaping dark hole in your throat, chest or belly?
That's because loneliness affects the middle chakras: the throat, heart, solar plexus and sacral. And these are all chakras that govern our relationships and social connections in this lifetime.
Close your eyes and re-experience that feeling again, paying attention to your body.
Where it is can tell you which chakra's issues and lessons are involved in healing your loneliness.
Why are we feeling into our loneliness? Because everything happens for a reason.
Spirit is sending you this deep ache on purpose, to guide you where in your life you can heal your relationships and take your energy and personal power to another dimension of health and expression.
Be kind to yourself though, if you can't feel where it is. All issues in loneliness have one origin though...
Your Inner Child.
When we are feeling lonely, the sacred energy of innocence, vulnerability and infinite possibility called our Inner Child is battling feelings of abandonment and neglect.
Intimately tied to your Subconscious Mind, the Inner Child in her infinite, wild and irrational power remembers everything.
She remembers learning to be independent, and she remembers how she interpreted that as being abandoned and neglected. Worse yet, if she was abandoned and neglected in this lifetime, the expectation of that abuse and deep emotional ache is even stronger.
Take a deep breath in. Be kind to her.
Because it's just an interpretation; loneliness is a subjective interpretation of reality in which you have decided to see yourself as alone.
Maybe you've been profoundly disappointed, disenfranchised, disempowered. Maybe you've been forgotten by someone you expected to acknowledge you, or your efforts and feelings have gone chronically unrecognized.
Yes, this is all painful, and all can justify the choice to see yourself as alone, ostracized, set apart or not included.
But, in spiritual truth, it is actually impossible for you to be alone.
There is so much love and support around you in the energy--the ancestors flowing through your bloodline, fairies and nature spirits surrounding you on Earth, the gift of air and breath, and that constant, still and small voice that speaks love to you when the mean girl in your head screams and kicks against your greater good.
Know this: Tell your Inner Child: "You are not alone. You are loved right now." #BK2YS #TRIBE
The angels are with you. Your loved ones--human, animal, plant, stone, etc.--are with you. Your spirit guides and power animals are with you. Source is with you. Nature is you.
But all of the above don't mean anything if you choose to believe you are alone.
You see, to find love in your loneliness, the first step is being willing to believe that you are not alone.
The father of positive thought, Napoleon Hill once said that "whatever you can conceive and believe you can achieve." What matters most is that you change your mind to believe that it's impossible to be alone because Spirit is always with you.
What comes next then is the purpose of feeling of loneliness: when you feel it, it means you are being called to greater love ASAP.
The deep ache that we feel in loneliness is a warning sign that we are choosing to feel disconnected from Spirit. It's meant to be uncomfortable, because it's a motivator.
But what are we supposed to do to heed the guidance and heal this feeling? Get out and share more love ASAP with as many people as you can; one way to lose the ache of loneliness is to be of greater service, and volunteering is powerful medicine for that!
