So often I hear the phrase..." I feel so alone"
It is the times when we are vulnerable and life is just kicking us hard that this feeling of being alone takes hold. We look at our friends and loved ones and somehow their world looks better than ours. We may feel that no one understands.
For me, this is where the Common Thread comes in. That link to the "Whole". We have all been there and others are in that spot right now at different parts of the world..connected within that web of humanity just living...and yes, like you may be " Feeling Alone and fearful"
Another way to look at this. Just maybe, your coping skills are down today. Outside influences beyond your control are at play...this is where my mind jumps to the Minor Arcana in the Tarot.
As humans we need to control where we are in the moment. This is our need for comfort and safety. But know..." This too shall pass." This is what I do. Once I recognize that I am in this state of being I surrender to the process. The interesting thing is it starts to feel better. No, I have not fixed the outside influences taking place, however, on an emotional level I have released the outcome. I have taken an active roll in my day as opposed to a re-active roll.
I have chosen this photo of the Blue Heron to illustrate what it is I am trying to convey.
"He stands alone, a vast sea before him, yet he trusts that everything will be provided."
If you feel alone, bring the Heron to mind and let that veil of peace encompass you, the day will unfold , but with a new perception...and yes, tomorrow is another day.
