As the Christmas season approaches, there are many people who feel isolated. Some, without family, others surrounded by family but still feeling alone in regret of loss or connection. If there is one message that needs sharing at this time of year it’s that none of us is really alone. In spirit we are supported far more than we know. Souls watch over us, often deceased family members as well as souls who help guide us through the hard times.
What keeps us isolated more than anything is a lack of connection with others. We often fear asking for help or just companionship, someone to share our deepest secrets, fears and hopes. Those fears manifest in a way that shuts out people, the very thing we are trying to remedy. Often it is just that one step of asking someone from help that transforms our feelings. Believe it or not, we are surrounded by sympathetic souls, who would be more than willing to open to us, should we ask. It is our fears and feelings that restrict this connection. It is when our hearts are open and humble that we may find the solace we seek.
For as negative as the world can seem, there are so many kind hearts walking the streets. Unless they know of our fears and feelings, there can be no connection. Our negative feelings create a wall that instigates their fears and nothing is accomplished. So in the surrender of acceptance, in the relinquishing of fear, we become visible and open to approach. Also if we are open, those spiritual hands of comfort and support can be felt and give further solace in our lives.
Regardless of what Christmas means to you, it should be a time of caring, kindness and peace. A family is not just blood but souls connected within this journey of life. So don’t feel isolated during this season, regardless of the reason. Instead, find it in your heart to be open and with courage seek what you want, whatever that may be.
