Don’t wait for a crisis to identify with your spirituality

Your relationship breaks down, and now your void is open, wounds from previous trauma bind into one so you decide to announce your broken heart and disappointments to the world. On forward, you’re determined to find every quote from philosophers and spiritual teachers that resonates with your pain. Perhaps even quotes that persuade your ex or ex-friend that you’re now growing above the drama because you’ve meditated read your natal astrology charts or shuffled a tarot deck amid your emotional crisis. Although, you haven’t actually taken the time to sit down and process your thoughts, what your feeling and your connection to spirit. In fact, you’re not even sure if you believe in spirituality. This is a typical affair in the age of social media.

We tend to lash out in public in a state of panic because we can’t see clearly during turbulence. We fear patting our way through the blurry path rather than sitting still and letting the waves settle. It’s okay to feel like you can’t breathe, like you want to lash out and punch a cushion or to simply sink in a bed of tears until your eyes get puffy. At least, this allows you to go within and to face yourself wholeheartedly. If you ever find yourself in this situation, remember to breathe focus on you and only you. Find a way to create space to understand yourself and let your emotions run through by creating positive images in your mind or throwing yourself in art. Even if you’re not an artist and even if you’re not in a crisis. Don’t get lost in the sea of chaos amongst social media and spiritual pressure. Stay connected to you.

Until next time.
