“What do you mean, ‘all alone?’ What about all of us?”
This morning I was walking through the woods, contemplating a relationship dynamic in my life right now. I became aware of feeling that I was all alone on this path, on this journey, and that I was about to be even more alone. So I called in everyone I could think of to talk to: all of my angels, guardian angels, Archangel Raphael, Jesus, Mary, everyone.
And this was the first message I received. In fact, they were referring to the energy of the nature that was all around me.
When I feel ‘all alone,’ I am disconnected from the life that is happening all around me. And there is life, and energy all around us, all the time.
Because everything is comprised of energy.
And then, this message: “Your safety is not Out There (meaning with the other humans, in the culture), your safety is inside.”
“Be like one of them - the trees, the animals, everything. Stand alone in your sovereignty, but belonging because you are there.”
“You belong because you belong.”
"You belong everywhere you go, because you are there. It is not a matter of belonging or not belonging. It is a matter of where your energy feels good and where your energy doesn’t feel good. Your safety is found on the inside.”
We are all comprised of energy, and we all are interacting and engaging with the energy all around us, all the time. That’s why you can never not belong, your energy is there and it’s engaging with the energy all around, and so of course you belong. You belong because you’re there.
It is never about whether other’s perceive you as belonging, at an energetic level you are already belonging.
Instead, it is a matter of discernment. Do you want to belong here?
When you are fully embodied and connected with your wholeness, is this a match? Does this feel good inside the body?
The first step, always, is there a store once wholeness and re-embody oneself.
My take away from this beautiful experience is that we humans understand belonging and safety all wrong. Completely upside down. We think safety is achieved “out there,” through external approval. Because that’s what “belonging” really means to humans - external approval. And so we think that it’s possible to not belong somewhere. But at an energetic level we always belong, because our energy is engaging with the energy all around.
We think we want to belong because then we’ll be safe, but true safety is never found outside the body. True safety is embodying our wholeness, and discerning if an energy feels good to us or not.
Because the surest path to losing connection with our wholeness is to override the energetic truth in our body that we should stay when an energy doesn’t feel good.
So, rather than seeking safety out there, by belonging, let’s see this for what it is energetically - seeking approval by disembodying and disconnecting from our innate wholeness.
True belonging and safety are 180’ opposite - we are always safe when we embodying our wholeness, and discern if the energy around us feels good to us inside our bodies. If it is a match. If it is, we may enjoy it like a tree enjoys the forest - by being sovereign and contained within itself, equal with all other beings around us.
And if it is not a match, embody oneself and trust oneself to handle walking away from an energy that does not feel good.
Blessings for the road, dear traveller.
~And, many, many thanks to the messengers in the woods today. I trust you know how much I needed this message.
