We all experience feelings of loneliness from time to time, even though we are almost constantly surrounded by other people. Somehow we feel vulnerable and not loved and cared for enough by our family and friends to an extend that is desirable for us. We yearn for someone to give us that much needed recognition of our worthiness in this world. We long to be loved unconditionally and to feel that who we are and what we do matters and is enough. These feelings can be very overwhelming and when left unattended can cause depression, withdrawal and isolation. I asked the Archangels for guidance on what to do, when we detect these feelings within ourselves. The following cards came up as guidance and Archangel Raphael stepped forward to provide us with this additional message.
When you are taken over by negative emotions or feelings the best thing you can do is to ask the angels to come to you for support and comfort. Our presence in your proximity will immediately lift your heaviness. Just find somewhere quiet to sit in stillness, take your time to allow your feelings to come up and then make the decision, set the intention, to release all your negative emotions. Visualize how you collect them all in a big package. Imagine a big box in front of you and how you put everything in it. See how I take this box from you and carry it away, you will instantaneously feel lighter. Then ask for my healing energy, which I will gladly offer to you. This is an important first step, because your emotions and feelings prevent you to think and see clearly and disable you to make healthy decisions.
You need to be able to make a fresh start, hence the second card. The darkness must make room for the light. You are completely empty now, so to speak, you have given everything away, it is out of your hands and now it is time to unfold your hands, turn your palms upwards and open your heart, ready to receive new insights and energy. Now you can start to develop a new outlook again, to refocus. You must remember who you really are, you must make contact again with your authentic Self, who is a powerful, magnificent and very loved child of God. You must realize how loved you really are and how much love the Universe has in store for you. More importantly you must FEEL it! I recommend, that you meditate at this stage, quiet your mind and open yourself up to hear the voice of the Universe. Feel how your body regains energy and becomes powerful again. Then stand up and feel how both your feet are firmly placed on the ground, feel how you are grounded into the earth, take your place on this earth and feel that you are here for a reason, you are here with a mission. If you find your mission, you will live a satisfying life. Your mission is personal and no other human being can say anything about it or judge it, therefore you don’t have to be dependent on their approval of you. When you live your mission, you will feel love and worthiness intrinsically.
The ocean card is a metaphor, the metaphor of the big ocean and the little waves. You feel lonely, because you feel separated from the rest of the world, from everybody else, but that is an illusion. You see yourself as a little wave apart from the ocean, but that could not be further from the truth. The ocean is the total of all waves, they are all connected, it is a unity. Every wave is the ocean, and the ocean is every wave. Everyone is part of the big collective and equally valuable. Feel this truth and you will not feel unworthy. Feel this truth and you will walk on this earth powerfully and confidently, provided with all the loving help and support there is available in the Universe to guide and encourage you on your path.
Remember these three steps and apply them when feelings of seperateness and loneliness get hold of you. Stop, ask, sit, release, receive and realize! We are here for you! Love always,
