Being disconnected!

Happy Saturday,

I have my quiet thinking reflective head on today, and have been thinking about the subject of loneliness, and isolation.  Facebook helps many feel connected virtually, yet we appear to be living in a world where a vast amount of people feel a sense of loneliness at the very core.

The virtual world, of Texting, Whats app, Messenger, Hangouts, Email, Snap chat and many others, do people actually talk to each other anymore?

Connections being made by text, conversations by text alone, appears to have produced a laziness to connect in a very real way.  And yet there are many that feel a sense of real loneliness!  I created a meme today and the caption said,

“Perhaps you feel empty? perhaps you feel that something is missing? Perhaps it is you that is missing? and you are the one you have been searching for!”

Interdependence is what we have been created for, I still believe this in many ways, yet there is a real disconnection with this happening, so many people searching for gratification outside of themselves, so many seeking for the void that they feel within themselves, to be filled through another.  When in essence to put your happiness at the hands of another is an expectation that may create a sense of dissatisfaction, because in essence another may not be able to meet that expectation.

How many times do you allow yourself to sit and be present with yourself? and to real feel a sense of connection with YOU!, There is so much that you can do when you are present with “Self”, there are things that you can do to fill your time, there are things that you can engage in to make yourself feel whole.

We live in a society that fosters being with another, and yes I do believe whether we like to admit it or not, we all do need someone, but I have come to learn that the time that we can truly be happy, is when we have allowed ourselves the journey of being happy and present with “self”.  That place when you feel a sense of peace and acceptance and being at one with YOU.  It is then that I believe that we can truly connect with another, essentially because the pressure and need, the expectation for another to fill the void that you may be feeling becomes less.  I love nothing that spending time quietly with myself, being in silence at times, listening to music sometimes, dancing, reading, researching, writing, doing things that need to be done, watching some TV, going out in nature and capturing beauty on my camera or on my phone, sometimes jumping on a bus and going to the beach.  There is no expectation from me for another to fill my silence, I can do that.

It is when you finally get to a place of acceptance, and being at one with yourself, that you will find another.  Ironically the very world that has now been created with social media, is connected yet disconnected, does that make sense to you! It has also fostered lazy behaviour where people feel that they no longer have to put the effort in, this goes to both males and females, it is all to easy to drop a message than actually pick up the phone, or pick up the phone and arrange a face to face meeting to really connect.  Like everything connection has even come at a price of disposal, almost like online shopping, pick what you like and then clicking.

Its sad really, a World that is connected, yet so disconnected.

I know that I would prefer to smell a persons presence, to feel their presence, to be able to hear the tone of their voice, their facial expressions, the tone of their vocabulary, how they express themselves, and yet no longer do I desire to just “Settle”, for I have learnt it is healthier to be alone, than with a connection that doesn’t feel real.

“Connect with what’s real, so you can feel!!

In love & light, Susan xxx

Today’s Universe Has Your Back Message 18/04/2018

Good evening,

extremely late today, its been a beautiful eventful day, one which I feel grateful and blessed for, the weather picked up and the elements were smiling, that is always a good thing.  I hope that your day has been enjoyable and productive and a happy one too.

Today’s message speaks of our outer experiences being a reflection of our internal condition, interesting. things are very busy but calm at present and that feels a good place to be, how about you? how are things with you?

We do have to be mindful of what we allow to influence us from an external point of view, certainly there are some things I deliberately do not engage in as a result of desiring to keep my inner world still to a degree, that is something that we can control in any instance.

So if things are challenging, dramatic from an external factor then this is a direct reflection of what is going on inside.   We attract what we are to some degree, sometimes this is difficult to see and to figure out, but there is truth in this.

So today’s message is simply to alert you to think and look at this in a different perspective, if your world is fraught with worry and lots of drama it is because somewhere you may be creating it from an inside place.

You have the choice whether to give something time or not, if it isn’t for your highest vibration then let it go.

Try and keep a positive mindset, with love & light, Susan xxx20180326_202951.jpg

 

Calm is not to be perceived as a weakness!

How many times do you see a quiet individual and think they are meek and mild, how many times? judgment you see is human nature, we do it all the time, even for those who state that they don’t, even for those who are conscious of their thoughts and are mindful in their actions of them.

You see there is so much judgement around quietness, being still, to be perceived as quiet it means, what is that person thinking, they are quiet, they appear very timid, mild and meek, but do you know calm and quiet can be a quiet hidden strength that resides from a very deep place.

I asked the Universe today for today’s card and the card that was drawn was “Calm Is Not A Weakness”.  the key principles of its message today are as follows:-

  • A balanced and harmonious existence attracts exactly that
  • No drama
  • Human society aspires to movers and shakers type A personalities, but what is the cost to their human emotional state, physical state and emotional well-being, at what cost.
  • Slow and steady does win the race, it is not how long it takes to get there, but that you get there.
  • Constant pressure to achieve can result in burn-out, distinguishing ones soul
  • Take care of your human vessel
  • Scattered energies achieve little
  • Focus, slowly and diligently
  • Money not being a total objective over inner calm, peace and inner happiness
  • You have all you need
  • You are resourceful
  • Meditation and sitting in silence, quietens the mind, body and spirit and nourishes the soul.

So I ask you what are you doing to quieten your mind, body and spirit? where do you give your soul the nourishment of calm, inner peace.  Tomorrow is a Full Moon a perfect time to allow the ebb of the Full Moon to flow over you as you prepare for the next chapter of your journey.

Remember a calm inner self equates to a peaceful soul.

Stay blessed.

In love & Light, Susan xx

Sensory Overload

I have been thinking about sensory overload, we live in a very fast paced World, not only in an every day sense of activity but in the form of social media.  Its addictive, this social media lark, it becomes the norm to our day, the norm to our routine, perhaps there is a fear of missing out, something interesting, something juicy, something that one can respond too. Everything is so fast paced, life has truly picked up a pace, everything at our
disposal so to speak. thZR42PH4N
Today I am feeling overloaded in a sensory way, noise, words, activity.  Sometimes regeneration and having a period of quiet time is essential for the well-being of our soul.
Being a Woman who is very much aware of my surroundings and who and what is around, also sensitive in the things that are not said, sometimes for those of us who are HSP (Highly Sensitive Persons) it can all feel a little too much, sometimes I go into observation mode.  There is a lot to be learned in this, so much actually in that sometimes the inaction, silence speaks for itself, people reveal a lot about themselves, me included even in the sense of inactivity.  I do find people rather fascinating.
Sometimes having a little quiet time is so good for the soul, so therapeutic, regenerative.  I can often tell when I feel overloaded I become irritated and snappy.  What I am aware of though is my choices in these moments.  But having said that the realization that we are all spiritual beings having a human experience and who the hell is perfect anyway, perfection is but an illusion of the MIND.
We are bombarded with information day in and day out that our brains are overly stimulated, I relish the moments where I can be in the soft glow of candle light and a sensory smell of natural aromatherapy, oh so soothing, oh so therapeutic.  Right at this present moment, I have very little sound around me, well it is much quieter than it was earlier, with a soft glow light on, it feels so soothing.
Sometimes it is also helpful not to THINK, but just allow ourselves to be STILL in the moment.  Often the sound of ones own breathing and the sound of stillness is just soothing, almost like a blanket around you, snuggled and warm offering comfort in the time of need.  If you are anything like me, you will know when you need a soothing sense of stillness.  The key though is being around like minded people who understand it.  Sometimes it is equally as pleasant to be in a room with someone whom you have an affinity with and not say a word, just their mere presence is enough and vice versa, sometimes just the closeness is sufficient.
I do not know what compelled me to write this today, but I have flowed with my inner guidance and just gone with it.
So on this note where are you in the feeling of sensory overload? Are you in tune with your innermost guidance, it is truly a powerful source of inspiration, guidance.  Truly, tap in, try it.
