Spirituality, loneliness, meeting people, and community

When someone suddenly (and it is often suddenly) discovers they are a spiritual being, and that life is something different to what they thought it was, and there is love, energy, synchronicities and little and large miracles, and perhaps they find out about karma and reincarnation, and their heart awakens and opens, something they didn’t expect happens.

People around them, their family and friends, don’t share their new outlook on life and what it means to be alive. They can often react in bemused, or unfriendly or hostile ways. Old friends might drop  away. Family might become distant and critical.

The person who has woken up to love in their heart and a new way of perceiving life becomes alone and often lonely. They don’t have anyone to share their worldview and their life with.

I read this often on spiritual groups on social media. I will usually post a response. The last response I wrote on this topic was this:

“Physical spiritual community is a good idea. Why not set up an fb page for people in your area (20 mile radius) who think spirituality is important. Find out who lives in your area, tell health food stores and such places about your page and your desire to set up a group so spiritual people can get together. Then get some actual meet ups going; walks, meeting in a cafe, full moon meditations, a sharing session (good idea to have an item that the person talking gets to hold to indicate it’s them talking), introducing a favourite spiritual book meeting, and so on. Also go on courses or go to talks.”

I realise that in some countries the nearest neighbouring place could be over a hundred or more miles away. To get closer to kindred souls might mean moving.  If I had had a spiritual transformation in my home town I might have been unhappy. However, I had spirituality crash into me when I was living in London in the nineteen eighties (no internet, and people had to connect physically), so I was lucky. There was plenty of spiritual stuff going on and I could go on courses, do T’ai Chi, do meditation, go to talks, and get to meet people, and it was a really fun, creative time, and there was plenty of mutual support.

People now have the internet to help them connect, and with a will, it is possible to meet people, rather than just look at a screen.

More and more people are going through their version of a spiritual awakening. It’s like having a veil torn away, the old world vanishes and they see themselves and the world in an entirely new way. Everything is connected, and thoughts influence reality. It’s a world of God, energy, love, consciousness and spirituality. It’s a brand new world of possibilities.

A spiritual awakening can be a shock to the system. It can have an emotional impact and throw up so many questions such as:

If what I used to believe isn’t actually true, what is? My old beliefs have gone, what can I believe? How does life work if the old way isn’t actually real? What do I do with these emotions and thoughts? What do I do with feeling depressed? What do I do in my life now? What can I do about feeling sensitive around other people and about energy? What am I? Who am I? How do I meditate? What information do I need and where do I find it? People think I’m crazy when I tell them what I think. What should I do? I feel alone now, what can I do about it? And so on.

In this book you will find some answers, clues and directions, to help you navigate your awakening, your transformation, and have a wonderful adventure.

 

A reason I haven’t posted for a while is that I have been working on this book.  Going on social media I found there were recurring and common themes that people wanted to know about. So I wrote this to offer some guidance and understanding. The energy of the book is quite good too. You could almost meditate on it!
