All she needs is to be felt

The meaning of life is to know yourself. When you know yourself, you know the other. When you know the other you understand yourself. To know yourself means you can grasp an understanding of life. You get a glimpse or even a full picture of what it means to be a tree, the wind or the pavement.

To know yourself means you go beyond the everyday life to dive deep within and uncover the meaning of you – of life – to return to the every day seemingly the same and really completely different.

This might sound so beautiful in written form and it is a beautiful experience, to say the least, but when you’re still stuck in the superficial layer of life it seems as if that deeper meaning is farther away than ever. The superficial layer can have a strong hold on you. Fear grasps your heart and holds it tightly in her grip because bills need to be paid, dinner has to be made, work needs to be done, groceries need to be bought, the car needs to be cleaned, children need to be raised, finances need to be done, arrangements need to be made and so on….

Empathize your way out of the Matrix

To me, the Matrix is the illusion we create for ourselves. The illusion that we are the person we embody on this earth, we are the jobs we have, and we are the people we spend our lives with. That what you feel is associated with the people in your life, the things that you do and the experiences you have. That you need to do something in order to receive something. That there’s something missing in your life. That you don’t have the necessary knowledge and skills to live your life.

Living an illusionary life usually goes with (unconscious) feelings of frustration, loneliness, emptiness, and longing. But we don’t see these emotions as what they truly are. Instead, we try to forget we feel that way by losing ourselves in food and entertainment. But these emotions are your way out. They are telling you that you’re living a life not in line with your true self.

And there’s a way out of this Matrix. There’s a simple (and at the same time challenging) way out of the Matrix that I will tell you about in this article. And as I always do, I’ll use my personal example to illustrate my point.

Core beliefs are the biggest force behind your affirmations.

Core beliefs are the biggest force behind your affirmations

You are creating your life every second of your day.

It took me some time to really get this. I used to think that I could create my dream life with Visualizations and Affirmations. And you can of course. But it’s not just during these exercises or rituals that you create your life. With Visualizations and Affirmations, you consciously choose for a specific desired outcome that makes you feel good NOW. But when you stop visualizing and doing your affirmations and you go about your day, you’re creating your life as well. And you’re probably doing that on an unconscious level.

And that which has a stronger and more consistent emotional vibration (the visualizations and affirmations or going about your daily life), creates your life.

From stressed to relaxation without moving to Bali

Her little hands pressed against the window of the daycare center with tears streaming down her face. Munira from the daycare held her lovingly but the little girl wanted me to hold her. I turned away, got my bike and rushed off. Brushing away my sadness and cycling as hard as I could to not feel that guilt.

A peak in my relationship and lessons about unconscious behavior

 

I have a relationship with someone who has the ability to withstand the most profound fears, who can say no to addictions that once helped him through his emotional pains, who can sit through destructive thoughts, fears, and anxiety that I couldn’t imagine sitting through.

He is a man with the biggest heart you can imagine as well as a tendency to have such negative beliefs and coping strategies to go with that, that the clinical world has labeled him having psychotic tendencies.
