So many go through periods of their lives, or even entire lifetimes feeling disconnected or as though something is missing. As happens to almost all of us at one point or another, varying degrees of our light is dimmed. I’d say all, but speaking in absolutes often leads to trouble, so I’ll say almost all and leave it at that. People come into this world innocent; open to learning, accepting, and believing in unconditional love. They believe in their potential, and are very open to trying and discovering new things. Then, something changes. People are told of things that they shouldn’t believe, will never be able to do, aren’t worthy of, and after a while those messages start to take hold. Little by little (or suddenly, unfortunately), they go from a state of receptivity, belief and enthusiastic curiosity to varying states of disbelief and lessening confidence, learning to be someone who is more in line with what others expect them to be, or which feels “safe”. There are a rare few who refuse to be impacted by life events, but sadly most people do, and neither of those is “wrong”, it simply is.
While someone may learn to survive under conditions of feeling as though they have to be someone they are not to be accepted, loved, or deemed successful, they do not thrive that way. On the outside, they can appear to be super successful and in some measures they may be, but I’m talking about something much bigger than that. The stuff we’ll be looking at here cannot be measured in material terms. That’s not to say that the two are mutually exclusive, because they’re not. I firmly believe that you can have it all.
My life’s work is about helping others to reconnect to the light which we were all connected to at some time. Reconnecting to this may very well lead to major life changes across the board, but it doesn’t have to. We can connect to our essence, spirituality, and joy while still keeping the same jobs and so on. It doesn’t mean that you have to enter into something on a grand scale along the lines of “Eat, Pray, Love”, unless you really feel called to go to those lengths. Even if you do feel called to embark on something huge like that, or to make major changes in your life, there are ways to bring yourself closer to that vision internally until you achieve it externally. As a matter of fact, manifesting those changes internally is the way to the external ones. The steps of each person’s journey are individual to them and I won’t tell you what you simply must do to make your entire life perfect and magical. If only it worked that way!
What I will do is discuss all sorts of things that you can explore and try which can help you to get reconnected to that divine spark which is still in there. Being able to light back up again and discover or rediscover who it is that you really are and partake of things which give you a sense of childlike wonder and happiness has huge ripple effects. You start to awaken parts of yourself which have lay dormant, your creativity gets a boost, your outlook changes (not to mention your attitude *wink*), and before you know it, all sorts of changes will be manifesting.
There will be a new post every week covering topics which pertain to ways of connecting to that part of yourself, discovering ways to awaken spiritually, figuring out who you really are and what makes you happy, finding more self love, acceptance, and healing. To put it simply, I wish to help you discover ideas and tools which help you discover yourself and shine again…to reilluminate.
Hope to see you again next week, when I’ll be beginning a multi-part weekly series of articles about an energetic exercise I created for myself a few decades ago that’ll help you get things moving. We’ll get into more concept pieces later. For now, I think that something more “doing” driven is a nice way to start out, as it gives you something you can actively work with.
If you’d like more individualized support, each tab across the top has information on various services I offer, or the drop down menu at the top left for those on mobile. Feel free to explore.
Sending lots of love your way!
