Are you feeling lost? Many people are struggling to find their place in a world that seems to be increasingly chaotic. Almost everyone has some level of need to find their place in the world, to believe their life holds meaning and purpose.
Sometimes it appears that we are all becoming more mechanical. Getting up and checking our cell phones, going to work and looking at the computer, going online and paying the bills, checking Facebook before going to bed, and getting up the next day to do it all over again! (tee hee) Regardless of the details, life can get messy and offer one giant abyss into which to fall.
Maybe we all have to get lost at some time in order to be found? Like getting lost in the woods turns into an adventure of a lifetime! But feelings of fear and anxiety always somehow accompany the unknown. Nothing much happens in the comfort zone, and this I know to be true – the abyss offers a space in which to search for a whisper on the subject of feeling lost:
Feeling is a function of the heart, so you don’t have to look far to understand the emotions that accompany the sense of feeling lost. Human emotions represent the prime agent for change and the catalyst for reorganization. Change is rarely found in a stabilizing form of energy, for it often disrupts the balance of root energy. The result is anxiety and fear.
If you have been feeling lost, take it as a sign that limited thinking, or some form of resistance, have created a false sense of confinement. By noticing the emotions of sadness, fear, or regret, one’s awareness can illuminate any false sense of entrapment to understand the need to lift the restrictions. Self-imposed rules, self-sabotaging behavior, limited thinking, and misalignment of core vibrations can be modified to create the shift needed to find the path toward fulfillment.
Human learning is often at the expense of a process of elimination. There is nothing wrong with understanding how things don’t work in order to arrive at better ways to make sure things can work. Whatever leads to knowing the central theme of one’s life, the identification of priorities, and the organization of thoughts and strategies can potentially become the gift that follows the emotions around feeling lost.
Know that feeling lost is an opportunity to stop what you are doing and tune into the heart to understand the emotions you are feeling, to see the truth of your existence, to break free from restrictions, and to pivot toward that which brings the most love and passion into your life.
Whenever you feel lost, become the great explorer seeking adventure on the path to an exciting new beginning.
Bring joy, ease suffering and create beauty, then dance like you mean it!
“I used to spend so much time reacting and responding to everyone else that my life had no direction. Other people's lives, problems, and wants set the course for my life. Once I realized it was okay for me to think about and identify what I wanted, remarkable things began to take place in my life.” Melody Beattie
