I was a loner for most of my life for many reasons. Mainly though, it was because I always felt different from my peers and thankfully, being alone never bothered me; I never felt lonely. I also found that I could not handle the responsibility of “managing” many friends as I felt their emotions too strongly and I needed a lot of alone time to find peace. What I didn’t realize at the time was that I was clairsentient (one who feels the emotions of others) and that I needed to learn how to deal with taking on the energies of others. Being clairsentient makes one vulnerable to other people’s feelings and emotions especially when under stress or when ones energy is low. It is easy to feel overwhelmed when in public places or in social situations.
Spirit, as I’ve said before, is patient with us here on the earth plane, waiting for us to accept the help we need not only to survive but to thrive. I look back now over the past 10 years to see that my life was slowly changing and preparing me for my now blessed state of mind and soul. Ever so slowly, I began to allow more friends into my life and found that by the time my dear husband crossed over to the other side I had accumulated a close nit group of souls who believed in me and were there to offer their loving support both physically and emotionally in my time of need.
I couldn’t help but marvel at this sequence of events…here was independent me (so I thought) with such a large support group – just when I need it! Hum….by chance? No way!
Synchronicity has become such an important foundation stone of my new life. When your eyes open to the ways of Spirit you are able to see how many people and experiences are presented just when they are needed. God Winks is a term that SQuire Rushnell uses to describe synchronicity and I just love that terminology. God does indeed work in mysterious ways. Take a moment to reflect on the many synchronistic events of your life and you will be amazed!
I took a chance and opened my heart to embrace new friendships and as a result I have been blessed with so many wonderful people coming into my life. I’ve come to realize that when people of like-minds enter your sphere you don’t feel drained – quite the opposite – I am filled up with new energy when I am in their presence. I realize now the importance of staying within a positive energy field. The Law of Attraction speaks of like attracting like and I like what I’m attracting!!
In everyone’s life, at some time, our inner fire goes out. It is then burst into flame by an encounter with another human being. We should all be thankful for those people who rekindle the inner spirit. ~Albert Schweitzer
Thank you to those who have kindled my inner fire!
Happy Valentine’s Day!
