A couple years ago I felt “enlightened” so to speak. I was in tune with my energy as well as others around me. Even in nature. I was artistic and was passionate, I knew what direction I was going in. Now I feel lost, I want to find the serenity I once had, the peace. Being able to truly feel. I need to be awakened again and I have been waiting/trying for so damn long. I almost feel hopeless, please help me
Do or Do not, there is no try
Being Awakened is not like a light switch that you just turn on when you want to, it’s a process of the soul both are light and dark selves. This is wonderful time to bring up this topic of “feeling lost” a few people have written in to me about feeling lost. When you are feeling lost, you are searching for a direction instead of realizing you ARE the direction. You are too stuck on the destination and not appreciating the journey. So yes in the past you were ‘enlightened’ and now you are stuck again but when we are in stagnant energy not moving this is when our soul grows the most. The universe is flux, ever changing, ever evolving and when we feel lost we go into ourselves and Question. It is important to Question the self, when we do this we are observing our ego, observing our soul, observing the darkness and the light for we are both. You cannot ignore the other. This is truly the balance we are all trying to create. It’s very similar to the act of tripping. When you are first starting to come up, you have to go through the ego to get to the soul. It’s the transcendence of the ego into the soul. It’s not about losing the ego because we all have egos, it’s about accepting the ego as much as a part of you as the soul.
You can’t change the past but you can forgive it and move on. So when you feel lost, why do you feel this way, is it because you have no direction or you just THINK you have no direction. When we are lost our energy is lost, there feels like no purpose, no mission, no place to go but why is society so intent on going constantly? We are always trying to go, we rush, we are consumed with time, we have to drive fast to get there faster, we have to cut people off because we can’t stand the person driving slow, it’s always go go go go rush rush rush when we do this we don’t allow time for ourselves. Time for our minds to clear, we need to resurface out of the water or we drown. It’s as simple and as hard as that. When you feel lost you are searching, endlessly searching when you are already found. You have to find that place within yourself that you are searching for and become the direction. Become the direction you want to be, this is magic this is how manifestation works you cannot expect to see the outcome when you are not focusing on the present. When you are consumed in future and time you are consumed in illusion. When you are consumed in past, your mind is on replay. How many times are you going to rewind the tape and just hit PLAY already. If you are consumed in time, you will not learn to LIVE. When we are so focused on death, on future, on degree we’re going to get to become successful, on a raise that never comes, on good wealth, on finding the perfect relationship, you are NOT focusing on present awareness. You are focusing in mind illusions. So when you are lost, stop trying to go anywhere and instead RELAX, lose this anxiety, RELAX and LET GO. You are the direction you’re looking for, you are the one driving the ship and telling it where to go. Universe is telling you to Slow Down. SLOW DOWN and RELAX, stop that stress from overfilling your mind, stop thinking in time illusions and Center yourself. Right here. In the present. If you have a hard time, focus on breath, when we focus on our breath we are stopping the thought madness and instead clearing our energy and our heads.
So if you are lost, step outside of yourself and relax.
Why are you so consumed on where you are going?
You only have eternity
