If you haven’t at some point, been overwhelmed by social media, you most likely don’t use their platforms as regularly as some & have a natural balance going. This little memo is not for you guys.
For those of us fully engaging, whether to promote a person, product or service to others, it can be simply exhausting. It takes a lot of energy to meaningfully engage with your tribe; your sphere of influence. Never mind the energy drainers known as unsolicited images & narratives, While typically we enjoy the ability to reach out, there are those times when it seems mandatory, to take a time out & reach within.
There are so many voices online. This makes it especially daunting for those of us who are additionally aware of energetic vibes. The absolute negative outpouring of expression, by those who can hide behind their keyboards cloaked, is disturbing to the empathetic among us. The mass cries for attention & aggression, in a world on the brink of an evolutionary revolution, is heart wrenching to us peaceful & loving types.
But even more than that, if you are peaceful, loving AND reasonable, it is difficult to go up against the masses seemingly alone. It’s heart breaking to bear witness to such planet wide emotional distress, without feeling personally responsible to help change it.
While I intellectually understand, that everything is as it should be, that these are merely signs that a new dawn is about to break…the humanity in me can hardly stand the ongoing relentless angst.
When I start to feel overwhelmed, I find myself weeping a lot for seriously no appearent reason, save for the energy being tossed back and forth while the world slowly comes unraveled. When I have seen too much… heard too much, I want to get right in there with rest of them and explosively add to the cosmic conversational tension… when I as a Lightworker know, you can’t possibly war for peace.
When I realize I am heading for the ditch, I know it is time to back the truck up & head for my heart base to regroup.
For me to experience relief, it boils down to breaking established patterns & regrouping entirely; preferably outside and in water. But often inside cleaning out closets & rearranging the furniture. Checking out of the rat race is good for the soul. It allows us to reconnect & re-balance with our own mental & emotional roots, without the distraction of peripheral energies that belong to others. It is a time for action, not words.
With the world at my fingertips, it is easy for me to forget there is another world under my feet. This memo is my reminder to take better care of myself, so I can continue to care for the hearts of others without losing my head!
