When You Are Alone

October 29, 2013

images… you can see where you are.

When you are with others, you have NO idea.

Being alone at any stage in your life represents an enforced separation. It is the universe’s way of giving you space to reflect and help you work out something that you would otherwise not see.

In life we tend to “busy” ourselves from looking in the mirror and doing our work. When lovers, friends and/or jobs get taken away from you, it is a sign that a part of your life needs attention. Once your plate is cleared and there is some space, you can begin to see what needs to be healed.

Being alone is one of the greatest gifts the universe can bestow upon us. It gives us the space to process our life path and gives us the clarity we need to make changes that will help us to move forward in the right direction. Don’t rush to “busy yourself” when you find yourself alone. You will miss the opportunity to heal the part of yourself that has been screaming for attention. When you are with others, those parts of ourselves get buried in favor of prioritizing others’ needs or others’ behaviors.

Enjoy your alone time and give gratitude for the opportunity to allow yourself to heal. It is in that space of being alone that great change comes about. And it is only through being alone that you can see where you really are in life. Embrace your alone time and use it as the stepping stone to take stock of the rest of your life. Oddly enough, spending time alone is really the only way to find true happiness with all others.

When You Walk With Your Head Down

… you walk into walls. It’s common sense. When you’re not looking where you’re going, you’re most likely going to end up somewhere you don’t want to be. Most of us sleepwalk our way through our lives — running the mouse wheel of life. We are so busy trying to make a living that we […]

It’s Not About Making The Right Choice

… it’s about accepting the choice you’ve already made. Our life’s path is made up of choices and there are no mistakes when it comes to making choices, because there are no right or wrong choices, there are only different choices. Don’t get caught up in the choice you’ve made – make it and move on. […]

Looking Back to the Past

… is only helpful to the extent it allows you to move forward into your future.  If it doesn’t, it keeps you back. Your life is only ever in front of you, never behind you. The past can be an informative tool if we don’t get trapped in it. If you want to uncover the […]

A Mid-life Crisis

… requires a mid-course correction. A mid-life crisis can happen at any age, but the wisdom here is that the secret to healing it, is in the way we define it. Life naturally has its ups and downs, and life is constantly asking you to define who you are in relationship to it. You’re never […]

When You’re in the Flow

… everything moves with you. And when you are not, nothing works. When you are in the flow of your life – flowing downstream — everything flows along side you. When you are out of that flow – pushing upstream — things are much more difficult. How do you know the difference? Ask yourself how […]
