Am I Enough? Am I Disconnected from Me? What am I Missing? Where did I Leave It?
Have you ever thought… am I missing something?
Well, I did… this is what I discovered this week when I embraced my loneliness.
Theme for this week is loneliness and very relevant to the current climate that we are experiencing. There are so many that are lonely, so very lonely. Though the need to connect is natural, many of us frequently feel alone.
So, I thought last week I was lonely but now I’m not quite sure.
I really analysed myself and dug deep into my psyche, asked the question, Am I lonely? Am I missing something? and if so, What is it?
We all look externally for people or places or things to complete us, fulfil us, bring us joy and love and acknowledgment, in essence this is what causes all the problems, we want the outside world to validate us. This is a natural thing for us to do, but the world does not always do this for us.
It is then that we need to have our own strengths. The love from the external world will come and go, this we cannot rely on.
The only foundation, the only basis is in us. The love is within us, it always has been and always will be.
The feeling of disconnection of loneliness is asking you, to source your own joy, to source your own completeness, to find your own freedom and experience more of your infinite nature.
Welcome to LUISA TV. Each week I will be sharing some Inspiration, Passion, Tools, Tips and Experiences from my week to share with you..
WHAT IS LONLINESS?
Loneliness is a universal human emotion, a disconnection that is both complex and unique to each individual.
Loneliness is the state of distress or discomfort that results when one perceives a gap between a desire for social connection and actual experiences of it. I remember being terribly lonely in boarding school surrounded by children or desperately lonely in my marriage or experiencing loneliness at a party filled with fabulous people.
Loneliness can creep up on you when you least expect it, it cling to you at times, whisper in your ear; something is missing and you look around waiting, longing for that external thing, or person or place you left behind but you just cant quite remember what it was?
The thing about loneliness is that we didn’t leave it, we didn’t lose it, we didn’t forget it, loneliness isn’t a thing, it isn’t a person – it’s a feeling and it can only be healed from the inside, within you.
WHAT IS LONLINESS ASKING OF YOU?
We all look externally for people or places or things to complete us, fulfil us, bring us joy and love and acknowledgment, in essence this is what causes all the problems, that we want the outside world to validate us. This is a natural thing for us to do, but the world does not always do this for us.
It is then that we need to have our own strengths. The love from the external world will come and go, this we cannot rely on. The only foundation, the only basis is in us. The love is within us, it always has been and always will be. So, we have these strong divine elements, guiding us and giving us our life force and energy.
When we receive energy from the outside world, we are essentially stealing it and at some point, we have to give it back.
When we truly lean to live with us and to love ourselves, this is fundamental way in which to be and feel completed.
The feeling of disconnection of loneliness is asking you, to source your own joy, to source your own completeness, to find your own freedom and experience more of my own infinite nature.
- Deeper relationship with self and the outcome is that you
- To love yourself more
- To receive inspiration
- In discovering a deeper connection with self – deeper connection with life and the universe
- Unimaginable wonders and opportunities are offered to you
- When you are complete within yourself – the totality of your life becomes complete
CURRENT ISOLATION & THE POWER OF CONNECTION
Having said that the power of connection is fundamental to who we are as humans. We are social beings and this powerful lesson of separation has taught me great insights into connecting on a spiritual level in the absence of the physical plane, so relevant for this time of COVID and while our freedoms that we once took for granted have been taken, we can always be internally free, this is our birth right.
As we look across the globe, we hear voice of injustice and we look for solutions we so desperately need.
The hugs and kisses which were so much a part of our lives are now sadly regarded as a health risk.
How needed is our spiritual touch in the absence of the physical touch!
Many of you may not be able to see family members, children, grandchildren, parents, siblings, mothers, fathers, lovers, friends, but this is an opportunity to dive deep into your psyche, and feel its gentle embrace.
Many of you are suffering, feeling lonely, you may be unable to be held, hugged, kissed, a held hand or just the simple act of seeing a smile.
I also believe that these very restrictions should also remind us just how important our relationships are and that we should never take them for granted. Let us never forget this feeling of not being able to show our affection as we would like to and let us ensure that we never again minimise the importance of those who mean so much to us.
How much we will delight when these times are over, we are humans after all, we do live in a human body and engagement with others, less the social distancing is fundamental to our existence, the connection of touch is one of the reasons we are here, memories, moments together, unbound by time and space.
I hope you realise that this year and the unique circumstances, despite the frustrations, has shaped us and strengthened us. Its when we step back from our tiny spaces, shift perspective, that these times may teach you to reconnect in a way that you never have before.
My hope is that you will see this time as an ability to connect more on a spiritual level in the absence of the ability to connect on a physical plane at this time.
This is an opportunity to live with us and love ourselves and find the divine within us, everything else at some point will collapse. Everything outside of us does not last, the only solid foundation is within. When our external world disappears and it will at some point, it could be our career, our home a loved one, a friend and who are we then? Who will validate me? Who will love me? Who will hold me at night? Who will comfort me? Who will offer me advice? Who will be my companion?
There is only one answer – me and the divine within me.
These feeling we can develop when we go within. When we have this love for ourselves, the other things don’t seem so important anymore.
How important it is to need the love of ourselves. The love that will always that will remain is the love we have for ourselves.

HOW TO HEAL LONLINESS?
- Get to know you
- Do something that you enjoy, run, walk, surf.

You are here right now, listing or watching this episode for a reason, nothing happens by accident. That might sound cliché, but its true.
So I thank you for your presence and I hope and trust this episode has offered you what you are needing right now.
Remember – You are enough
Finding that inner harmony, that inner quietness, that inner love is available to everybody
You are, we are never disconnected, we just sometimes forget. There is absolute pure divine, God, Source, within all of us. You are never alone
This week is an invitation to find that comfort you are so needing, that can only be found within you.
We cause our own suffering, and we create our own healing, perhaps its time to allow yourself to shine, you are enough.
It is ok to be here, everything is going to be ok, everything is ok
Nurture relationships and value those who journey alongside you and don’t be afraid to tell them what they mean to you…often.
But most importantly nurture your relationship with yourself.
Much Love to you all and thank you
