As this month full of amazing teamwork kicks of to an unbelievable start for Live + Breathe, I've been prompted to reflect upon the meaning of connecting deeply to others. This idea of connecting deeply with others holds a little bit of a more meaningful space than just regular team work and shines through so brightly here in our non-profit.
If it's possible to connect deeply to others, then what does it mean to be disconnected? If you are experiencing a major roadblock in your life, it means there’s a disconnect within you. As a result of this disconnect, the universe is now showing you tension to bring attention to where your awareness is needed. As you become aware of the issue from a universal perspective, you will begin to see that all people, places and things are deeply connected through a network of intentions, thoughts and feelings. It is not possible to have this understanding without deeply taking time out to be with yourself and understand your inner landscape.
Have you ever noticed that overwhelming feelings of lack, fear, danger and impossibility arise when we feel alone? I don’t mean the good kind of alone, but rather the kind where you don’t know who to turn to? When we are disconnected from all of life, we experience aloneness. We begin to feel heavy, weighed down, hopeless. Some of these feelings can turn into financial, relationship, personal and environmental challenges. While these challenges are just a part of the universal flow of life and they are most definitely there to assist us with our true path, they can be distasteful, overwhelming and paralyzing.
So, what does this have to do with teamwork? Everything! It is not possible to create effective relationships of any kind, without first getting to know what you’re driven by, what your inner most passions are and of course what your greatest fears may be. As we shed light on what is in our way of opening up authentically and fully to all of life, we transform and deepen our relationships with others. When you finally get the courage to live your authentic life, you will need people! All people. People will be your light bearers, your guides, your stepping stones, your teachers, your fuel and inspiration. The great mission you hold in your heart, is a mission for all people. It is a mission to connect fully, truthfully and deeply to all of life.
I write this post for you today, to encourage you to find the places within you that need your love. Once you find them, share them with all of life. Open yourself to all people. Smile - a lot! Be real. Be true to yourself. Honor the divine mission within you. Share it with others. This is the secret of attracting success, love, peace and joy. Only the deepest desires of the heart are worth living. Once you live with the courage to follow your dreams, people will come to you, to honor you, to help you, to lead you on those days that you might be lost. Do not hide your beauty and your dreams. We are all waiting to live them with you!
