Have you ever felt alone, isolated and separate? Have you ever felt unloved or like everyone else is having all the fun and you’re not? Have you ever asked the question ‘what’s wrong with me?’ then focused your attention on all those things you think are wrong with you?
If you answered ‘yes’ to any of those questions you may want to shift your focus and awareness into the present moment. Connect with yourself and the universe as it IS.
You are connected when your energy and awareness is in the present with yourself and all that is around you. What separates you are those thoughts that keep you in the past or worrying about the future. In essence you lose your connection with yourself and your surroundings and go right into the pictures and illusions your mind has created.
When you are living or stuck in a picture of illusion it not only takes on a life of its own but it grows. You are actually fueling the illusion thereby separating yourself from the present and more than likely the facts. This also separates you from your connections with others because you’re “lost in thought”and not connected with the present and what’s going on right in front of you. It’s also possible you isolate yourself from others because you don’t feel you’re “in a good place” or “happy enough” or you’re “bad”.
If you truly take a few moments to see where those feelings are coming from you will find pictures from the past or worry about the future. When you begin to re-connect with the present moment, you are not only pulling your energy from the illusions of the past but you are acknowledging the here and now. You are connecting with all that IS not what WAS or is YET TO BE.
In the present there is no guilt from the past. In the present there is no worry about the future. Connecting with yourself is as simple as sitting in a chair, feeling the earth beneath your feet and breathing in the glorious air. It is as simple as feeling the warmth of the sun on your face. It is as simple as feeling the love that comes from within you.
With every step and breath you take you are connecting with the earth and universe. Your awareness connects you with YOU. You connect with others by remaining present with yourself and them. Why separate yourself with thoughts of the past or dreading a future which has not unfolded? You, WE are all connected as unique individuals.
See and know what connects you with yourself. What are you passionate about? What do you love? How does it feel when the warm sun shines on your face as it brightens the world around you? See and know the love of friends and family. It is there but you may not see it in your separate state of mind. Connect with the present and see what is indeed already there. You don’t have to separate when you are in the here and now.
See and focus on your connections and watch your world and the world around you transform!~Shine Your Light Debbie
