We are all connected. Created from the same creative energy of unconditional love. We are connected to everything everywhere. Our body is connected by a web of neurons, cells, fibers, platelets, muscle and bones. An intelligent web of astro energetics connects our mind, body and spirit. This inner web connects to an outer web where we all connect together to everything and everyone on a very basic raw energetic level. This is why we can feel the collective energy of the planet. This is why we can sense another’s emotions or more even their physical feelings. We are vibrationally and energetically connected. So why is it that we very often feel heart strickenly disconnected? It’s because we have disconnected from our self so much that we don’t have the baseline to connect with our own web let alone to the greater energetic web of the universe and all that is and all that is in it.
The return back to connection starts with a return back to ourselves which holds the key to the greater connection to all. Todays society is obsessed with connecting. It’s thirsty for connection. However, connection has become diluted by the feeling and belief that we must connect under the guise of a perfect persona. This persona is not authentic. We are being inauthentic with the world and therefore, inauthentic with ourselves. This strips away the ability to fully connect in any meaningful way.
The return back to authentic meaningful connection starts with an authentic meaningful connection with the self and then outstretches from within and joins the outer connection to form a feeling of connection that infuses peace and a belongingness into the fiber of your being.
A return to self connection begins with self love. Unconditional self love. Many people resist inner connection because of a resistance to go within because of self hatred, self judgement or the like. A self love practice is vital in returning to loving yourself and cultivating the seed for connection. A self love practice could be looking in the mirror 5 times in the morning and telling yourself “I Love You”. Look in your eyes. Smile. Another entry point into self love is through the breath. Noticing your breath and connecting with the power of the life force running through you can shift you over into self gratitude and gratitude for your life. Several times a day, allow yourself to just observe your breath. Let your breath be slow, long and sweet. Notice the rhythm and the rise and fall. Observe the subtle sensations that the movement of your breath offers and then allow yourself to feel grateful for the life that moves within you at all times. Connect to what lights you up and makes you feel good. Find time to do something daily that lights you up. Develop a loving self care practice. Cultivate a way of life where you are feeding yourself good food, moving your body in healthy ways, taking care of your body and talking to yourself in a loving manner. Listen to the inner yearnings of your soul. And follow the guidance that your inner wisdom has to offer. Choose to recognize the beauty within you.
By doing these self love practices, you will cultivate an inner connection and an inner love and appreciation. This inner love will permeate out of you and into the outer world. You’ll start to notice the beauty in nature and in others that is simply a reflection of your own inner beauty that you’ve now connected to. By recognizing the rhythm of your breath you’ll hear the rhythm in nature and feel the rhythm of life. And you’ll feel connected to it all.
The connection that you feel will be an extension of the inner love and connection you’ve cultivated. This energetic connection will stream out of you and back into you in a constant river of cosmic connection that never disconnects. It only ceases to be recognized when the inner connection is somehow weakened.
Another benefit of connecting deeply within is that it will attract relationships of deep connection. When you see and honor yourself, you will attract in relationships with others that mirror that inner connection. You’ll attract people who authentically see, honor and love you for who you are because you are living from a place where you are doing that for yourself. Like attracts like. Inner love attracts outer love. Inner connection attracts connection to all. Inner confidence attracts situations that validates that confidence. “As above, so below, as within, so without, as the universe, so my soul”.
Breathe and love your way back into connection. Come back into a relationship with your inner light and you will never feel lonely again.
