Why do I sometimes feel empty inside, or like I’m losing myself or missing something in my soul or becoming impure in terms of a soul?
We are all like waves. Sometimes, gentle and skirting the edge of the beach. Other times HUGE and tumultuous. There is a flowing in and flowing out, just like the breath. And all of it is magnificent.
There is so much beauty in being next to the ocean. The wondrous effects it has on our soul is incredible. Clearing, releasing, cleansing, rejuvenating.
When it’s stormy outside, and the waves come crashing in to the shore violently, we stay inside safe and sound. Letting the ocean do it’s thing.
As humans we go through our own cycles. And each stage is like a moment in our personal evolution.
Those moments when you feel empty, lost or like you are missing something isn’t meant to be a time to be self critical, but rather an invitation for more self care. We need to fill ourselves up with things that make us feel good. Process the emotions and energy that brings us down, let it go so we can be stronger and happier for having had the experience.
For every low, there is a high, and the journey through it, so sweet, when you recognize that you had the strength within you all along.
Give yourself permission to discover what makes your heart sing.
Art feels like a good place to start for you.. get creative in some way- whether it is simply doodling is a great way to start. If you enjoy or are curious about painting, then go to the craft store and get some paints and a canvas, or event an art book that you can paint in. If being creative through dance is calling you, then explore Nia or an Ecstatic Dance group in your community.
Let creativity be the spark to re-ignite the light of your soul~
