Insight From The Daily OM

Hmm, it always comes when I need it.

A Separate Reality
Disconnecting from the Source

We all experience periods where we feel separated from the loving ebb and flow of the universe. These times of feeling disconnected from the source may occur for many reasons, but self-sabotage is the most common cause for us choosing to cut ourselves off from the flow of the universe. We purposefully, though often unconsciously, cut ourselves off from this flow and from the embrace of humanity so we can avoid dealing with painful issues, shun the necessary steps for growth, or prevent the success that we are afraid of achieving from ever happening. When you choose to disconnect from the source, you block the flow of the universe’s energy from passing through you. You become like a sleepwalker who is not fully awake to life, and your hopes, plans, and dreams begin to appear as distant blurs on a faraway horizon. Universal support has never left you, but if you can remember that you became disconnected from source by choice, you can choose to reconnect.

Reconnecting with the universe grounds you and is as easy as you making a concerted effort to become interested in the activities you love or responding to what nurtures or stimulates you. You may also want to make a list of the activities and kinds of experiences that touch your soul. Try to pinpoint the times when you have felt fully engaged and aware and ask yourself what you were doing. But one of the easiest ways to reconnect is simply by stating the intention of doing so.

When you disconnect from the universe, your sense of purpose, creativity, and ability to be innovative are not as easy to access. You may also experience a deep and empty sense of longing or feel devoid of ideas or unworthy of love. It’s important, however, to recognize that being disconnected from the universe is never a permanent state, and it can be reversed any time you decide that you are ready to reconnect. When you are connected to the universe, all aspects of your being will feel alive as the flow of the universe pours through your being and into your life.

Hmmm, very cool food for thought. Sometimes a disconnect is totally necessary though, IMO.

Jessica said...

Thanks you guys for the comments! I've been kind of out of it lately...I'll be by soon to catch up.

I thought so too Arv! Hope your weekend was wonderful! :)

Hi Lori,
I can see that too! :)

Dawn,
So nice to see you! :) Hope all is going better for you, sweetie.

Thanks Hemu. :)

Nik,
I agree, some time is necessary. But for me...when I disconnect too long it's like a downward spiral. I get stuck, for too long. It's hard to connect again.
