If you feel like no one else is listening to you, then I’m listening to you.
I can hear what’s happening in your inner world. I can hear your desire to be seen for who you really are. I can hear your need to feel like you’re living in your own skin. I can hear you wanting to express your authentic voice and not be judged by anyone, especially the ones closest to you.
Maybe that doesn’t count for much. Maybe it doesn’t mean anything to you. Maybe no one knows what you’re really going through. Words mean nothing. Especially if they come from someone who just wrote some blog post, somewhere in the world. You’re still alone.
That’s true. But I’m still listening.
I’m still allowing for the possibility that my words are landing on you, that you understand that what’s happening in your authentic emotional experience is important to me.
I’m hoping that, as you read my words, you consider that I’m speaking my truth. I can’t help but have empathy for others. It’s been a curse, but now it’s a blessing. I’ve been hurt like no one else, but now I’m nobody’s fool. I learned to move through it. And now I’ve become a teacher. A teacher who listens.
Whether you believe that or not.
I’m listening to how difficult it is for you to live with your partner, and how you’re afraid to live without him. I’m listening to how hard it is for you to leave, and how much harder it is for you to stay.
I’m listening to how unusual it feels now that your nest is empty and how you don’t know what to do next with your life.
I’m listening to the confusion and hurt that still lingers after your divorce. Each one of them.
I’m listening to the queasy vibrations you have about finding another partner. I’m listening to your frustration about finding the same difficult partner again and again every time you try to date.
I’m listening to you wondering why the world can’t see the natural, radiant beauty within you, the soft loving presence, the powerful wildness. You know it’s there, but now you’re starting to doubt that it will ever come out.
I’m listening to the way you found yourself in the wrong life, the wrong marriage, the wrong job. I’m listening to you ache as the voice of your life’s work remains silent.
I’m listening. And that’s all well and good. Maybe that gives you solace and relief, maybe it doesn’t. But what I can say for sure is that I’m not the only one listening. There is someone else, someone far more important than me that is listening to you. All the time.
Your inner being. Your spirit. Your Higher Self.
You have a partner that is with you all the time, listening to you, giving you feedback about everything in your life. How do I know this? Well, what are you feeling right now? Happy and joyous? Angry and bitter? Hopeless and in despair? Whatever it is you are feeling, this partner, this inner being is listening and responding to you through your emotions.
Your emotions are a guidance system letting you know that you are never alone. Not ever.
Now here’s the thing. And what I’m about to say may throw you through a loop a little. Your Higher Self is listening to you all the time. And she communicates her guidance to you through your emotions. How you feel is an indicator that your spirit is listening to whatever you are going through.
But she also listens in other ways. She sends things to you. People. Situations. Teachers. Tests.
She is always looking out for you. She is always providing you guidance. The question is, are you listening to the guidance. Are you tuned in enough to recognize the signals that your Higher Self is giving you.
This is why I want to teach you how to take a Solo Travel Journey.
Because to me, there is nothing like a Solo Travel Journey to put you in direct connection with the guidance that your inner being is offering you. Nothing.
When you leave everything behind and set forth into motion on a journey to a new land, no matter how close or how far, you will rendez-vous with the very spirit that lives in you. You will feel like you are being listened to by a presence far deeper than you’ve known in your day-to-day life. You will feel a sense of profound validation that you are not alone, in spite of the “solo” nature of this journey.
Someone is listening to you. Someone wonderful.
The real you.
If you want to experience this “listening,” I recommend you take a trip. And do it solo.
I’m hear to teach you how to do this. I’m hear to let you experience your truth.
All you have to do is leave everything behind.
And remember to keep it moving.
