You have reached a place in your life where you cannot see past the nose on your face. What has happened and why is your vision so narrowed and shortened? Do you sit with your eyes open, yet your vision is clouded and you cannot make sense of the world? You have causes that have clouded your vision and your life is suffering because of this narrow focus.
Let’s change that focus to one more open and visible to be able to see what is going on around you. Life tends to grab hold of you sometimes and shakes you silly until your vision is no longer clear. It’s time to step back from the hold, release yourself from the grips of society, to stand steady letting your head clear and your vision to return to normal.
Be Yourself. It’s so easy to get caught up in the newest, shiniest fad or faze of life. It’s easy to get wrapped up in the life of another, forgetting about yourself. Do you even remember who is your authentic self? If not, it’s time to shed the attachment others and go in search of the real you.
Find Yourself. Stop going to all the hang-out spots with all the hang-out friends. Give yourself some time away with just you to explore life on your own. What does it feel like? Do you even know what you like to do when no one else is around? You may need to explore all types of hobbies to remember what you like to do with your own time. You may need to explore your own mind and filter through the beliefs that others have impressed upon you to find what you truly believe. Are your thoughts and beliefs jumbled into the lives and beliefs of all those who you have been around for so long? Step back and just spend time with yourself.
Dig Deep. Within your own soul there is you waiting to be released. You have not allowed this part of you, this loving natural, authentic self to be on the surface. You have tucked away your own self to blend in with others. Dig deep inside your own heart, mind, and soul to feel the authentic self of you expand and grow. You will be amazed at how much healing you may need to do in order to be back to you. Explore all avenues of life within your own belief system to filter out that which is not your own to uncover that which is your own.
Sit in Silence. Yes, you can and should sit in silence to allow yourself the ability to let all outside influences fall away leaving only your own thoughts bubble to the surface in this silence. When in this silence, listen, carefully. Not only will there be time for cleansing and healing, but also time for listening for advice from your own higher self. Listen in silence for there is hidden wisdom always rising to the surface for you to hear.
Trust. You must trust your own heart to understand that which you hear. You must trust your own heart for that which teaches you a lesson. You must trust the messages that come through and the guidance that follows is leading you back to your own authentic self.
As you follow through with nurturing your own self, you will discover that you will be able to see the world with clearer eyes and less clouded vision. Your no-nonsense filter will activate to let you see the cloud for which others are sitting under. You have moved out from beneath that cloud to the full sunshine illuminating your own space; bringing sunlight to your eyes and the world around you. Your authentic self is in view of others and open to the world around it. You have explored, healed, and illuminated your own self to the point of no-return. You found you.
Let the world turn without you caught up in its spin anymore. Yes, you can socialize and go out with friends, but you have a very clear sense of balance now and will know when to retreat to take some time for your own care. There will be no more days of cloudy vision in your future as you have opened up the eyes of your own self to the beauty of the outside world and the inside self.
