Pain and human emotions

Pain is something we all feel and it is very real. Sometimes pain can be overwhelming. I’m not speaking about physical pain, but more the emotional/spiritual pain. As a human I find it a challenge to be open about my emotions. I find it a challenge to talk about the kind of pain i’m experiencing. I don’t always get the feeling that there is a place for emotions in our society. From a young age we were taught that we are supposed to stand tall and fight against our emotions. If you show them you are labeled as weak or soft, or you have ‘lost control’. When you do show your emotions in public, people think something horrible happened to you, because it is an exception to see someone expressing his or her emotions outside on the street. As a guy it is even more of a challenge, because the main idea about a man is that he needs to be a warrior, a fighter. It is this twisted concept that causes a big part of my pain as well.

I want you to know

Dear reader,

I want you to know that you are not alone. You are not helpless.
You might feel this way and that is oke.
I want you to know that with you there are many others who feel lost, who feel alone, isolated and misunderstood.
With you there are many others who question life, themselves, the status quo, society and existence on this earth.

I want you to know that you are being supported, once you allow to be supported.
I want you to know that you are loved, when you allow others to love you.
You are being understood once you understand yourself.
You are receiving answers whenever you find your peace inside the center of your body. Continue reading I want you to know

You are more special than you think!

The idea that spirituality is only for a select group of people stems from very old ideas about who was able to serve god. These ideas are still imprinted into our consciousness. When we have a religious or spiritual problem we go to our priest, rabbi, imam, guru, shaman, psychologist, for a solution. You tell them your story and you expect that they will come with an suitable answer. This is what they have studied for. It is their job.

The middleman is supposed to be the translator, the communicator between you and the divine. And it is true. Some people are better in making the connection than others. Some people have this gift, while others have many other gifts. Thank god these people are here to help others. Thank god these humans exist and offer their help so that the symbolical, universal language becomes understandable in human language. When spirit communicates with us, it could be through metaphors, symbols and dreams, but also through thoughts, feelings and visions (and many many other ways). When you really need to receive a message, you will receive it through the channel that suits you most. Eventually you will understand the message.

My happy birthday wish for you!

On the 20th of march I celebrated my birthday and usually I’m not so much into celebrating my own birthday. I just find the tradition strange. What have I done to live another year? It is through you that I exist. It is because of the people in my life or who used to be in my life that I learn and grow as a person. Especially those who are not in my life anymore, I salute you. The lessons have been learned and I’m very grateful for that. For those who are in my life, thank you so much. I would like to share my birthday wish for this year.

I wish you a peaceful life from now until the very end of your days.
May you be filled with joy and satisfaction. May your worst days now become your best days later.
May the sun rise just for you and shine it’s warm light upon you.
May the wind blow over you and rejuvenate your energy.
May the rain wash away your sorrows and your fears.
May the birds sing your name in glory.
May the bees produce an extra jar of sweet honey, just for you and may the flowers blossom when you walk by.
May the trees salute you and may the grass giggle of joy when you play like a child.
May the universe bless you with infinite abundance. May you have the courage to find out who you are.
May you surf on the flow of life, while you smile like an idiot.
May your stomach be filled with tasty food. And may harmony be your favorite song. May other humans see your value, because you are so much more loved than you realise. This is my wish for you and so it is.

The game of duality

There was a time where I felt myself literally being the ball of the ping pong game. One moment I was ping and the next moment I was pong. It was a difficult time where I was exploring my Self. It was a time where I learned the extremes of this dual world slapping me from one side to the other. During those ping pong times I was much frustrated, not knowing how to handle myself. I could not understand what was going on and why all of this happened to me. I was caught up in a game and I didn’t know the rules.

When I look back on those days I can see the valuable lessons I had to learn. One of them is that we live in a game with the core rule of duality. I had to experience that everything exists in twofold. One extreme on one side and another extreme on the other side of the scale. It seems that they can never come together in the game And one cannot exist without the other. Eventually it is and it isn’t supposed to come together.

The gift of opening up

Every single day I learn more about myself and about the world around me. It is not by surprise that I learn new things. I asked for it. For many years. I wanted to know who I was and what the purpose of me being here on earth is. Over time, I got some puzzle pieces thrown at me from my spirit team (you have a team too!! Go talk to them). There are a couple reasons why they only give pieces of the puzzle. 1) It is to overwhelming to get all the information at once and 2) There is no fun left to live for when you know everything.

A way for me to cope with my social anxiety is to do completely the opposite of what someone with social anxiety would normally do. Instead of hiding, I’m opening up. It is part of my learning experience in this Universe(ity). By opening up myself, there is not much I can hide for others. I can not hide behind shame, guilt, addictions, or fears. I share parts of myself as much as I can in the moment and in return I learn to overcome my fears and everything that stands in my way to feel freedom. It is a great deal!
