There comes a point in the life of a soul where we begin asking the bigger questions. The simplicity of life, the day to day activities become mundane and unable to fulfill us. We begin to feel lost, often separated and depressed, anxious, different from others and as though we do not fit in or belong. In our culture those emotions are frowned upon and many of us find ourselves feeling isolated and ashamed. We begin to think there is something wrong with us. Why can’t I just be happy? Why does it seem like everyone else is fine? The more these emotions grow we become hopeless and sometimes try to mask our emotions with harmful substances and addictions. From alcohol to drugs to prescriptions from the doctor designed to numb our emotions and personality “flaws”.
However, these are not flaws at all. Anyone who studies ancient texts, memorandums of great healers, visionaries, people who made enormous changes on our planet, each of them record that what brought them to discovering their greatness was the feeling of wanting more. Asking the bigger questions. Looking around and not being content or happy with what was considered the norm. From Gandhi to Buddha to Martin Luther King to Einstein. ALL felt that separateness that pulled them away from their human self and called them to become greater. Be greater, make something greater and create a ripple effect so large in this world that the change would be everlasting.
This beckons the question – why are we numbing ourselves from an awakening? How did we get so lost as humans that we began viewing our emotions as enemies and not allies or whispers from our soul to shake us out of this dream and awaken us to the very core that is calling us home? That call is the reason for the unrest we feel. It is the reason for the ADHD and the clinical depression and the anxiety issues and the emotional turmoil that has ravaged our children, our friends and so many of us. Therefore, let me ask you this? What kind of experience do you think God, your spirit, your angels, the universe (whatever you want to call it) called brought us life to have? A life sitting on the couch, eating junk food watching desperate housewives or HGTV or the latest grotesque crime series? Playing video games, addicting our children to competition and lack and emotions of constantly being on the go and never learning to just BE, listen to their soul and then become? Why do you think we are at such a crisis and turning point? We got lost but the great news is we are finally waking up and so many are seeking to find the truth. The truth that our soul has been waiting for us to find.
All of life is an experience to learn and cultivate our greatness. To see what our beautiful spirits are capable of. To contemplate the challenge of being blinded in a world that is fake but we are convinced is real with no concrete understanding of where we came from or what keeps us breathing and “alive” each day.
So how does the spirit wake up this human that is hypnotized by the mundane and lost? First, emotions of unrest arise, because none of us should rest until we find our own truth. Our own personal meaning and calling and understandings of why we are here. Then, if these emotions are ignored or numbed, disease or illness starts to appear. Physical discomfort gets peoples attention. It shakes up their every day world and breaks the patterns that we become so accustom to. So many find the truth in their soul through disease or tragedy or trauma. But not all of us have to take it this far. What if we just listened to the original emotion? What if we actually honored the soul signals from within, quieted our mind and stood up to the challenge of finding who we are. Becoming what we are supposed to be and most of all standing up and breaking the routine. It is never comfortable to feel like you’re not in the “norm” but if you are in the norm, then all that means is you have learned to numb yourself to the point that you can navigate on autopilot better than others. Eventually, this will shift, even if it takes the final moments of life to get you there, you will ask yourself at some point why am I here? What am I supposed to do? What does this all mean? Where do I go after I leave?
I guarantee if your asking yourself those questions, emotions of unrest will likely start to arise to HELP show you the way. To help you to shed what you need to let go of and help you be the spirit that is you.
This is called an awakening, enlightenment, the beginning stages of reaching Nirvana, the rise of the kundalini or the Christ-like consciousness. Every belief system has their own name, however, it is all the same thing. We are all souls journeying home and each one of us will go through this phase in our existence. It is unavoidable and it is beautiful. Many of you are already experiencing these emotions and are lost. As you know, I too have recently moved through the journey of a lifetime and there are no words for how forever changed my beautiful soul is. I am honored, grateful and humbled all at once.
No matter where you are in your process of spiritual growth, know you are never alone. We are all in this together and we’ve got this. One step at a time.
Thank you for joining me on this journey.
Love to you all – Jillian
