On Feeling Lost

Click the photo to get a free psychic reading at PsychicAccess.comMany industrialized nations place a great deal of emphasis on being special and getting noticed. These days you can become a celebrated just for existing in the public eye, such as Paris Hilton and the Kardashian family.

Many people would never admit they have this desire or need; many do not notice how ingrained this is in the culture of our society. Yet, many people get psychic and spiritual readings, because they want to be told about their Mission, Purpose or Special Gifts. Many people I work with also have an unbelievable plethora of undefined and persistent physical and psychological ailments that disappear when the person gets busy, or starts being of real service to others.

This leads me to wonder if an egocentric existence, promoted by the mainstream media and bought by the consumer, isn’t one of our primary ailments. Is it not making many of us prime targets for inflated self-importance and grandiosity?

Abandon all self-concern, worry not about your welfare, material or spiritual; abandon every desire, gross or subtle, stop thinking of achievement of any kind. You are complete here and now- you need absolutely nothing ~ Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj

Don’t get me wrong, there are wonderful people and spiritual helpers out there. But just like finding a great and honest car mechanic or lawyer, it takes some searching, and some trial and error.

Do we realize what it takes to have a Mission, or Gifts and Talents? Your life is not your own. You answer to a Higher Power and often we look quite bad, silly or like a failure here on Earth! Look at the lives of some of the spiritual giants who came before us: Gandhi, Martin Luther, Buddha, Jesus, Joan of Arc, Mother Theresa, John of God, and so forth. None of them lived in mansions, had perfect marriages, or drove expensive German vehicles, neither were their Missions recognized or applauded at the time. In fact, they were typically misunderstood, pitied, hated, persecuted or ostracized. All of them had their Faith severely challenged – more than once! Many of them were jailed, beaten, and ended up friendless and poor. Some ended up dying for their Mission. These enormous Souls needed Spirit to be their constant and steady companion, since human reactions to them were so varied and inconsistent.

So, what is feeling lost? Is it that we do not have an external validation that makes us feel alive, recognized, or valued? If so, perhaps feeling ‘lost’ is not such a bad place to be. If we are in our body, connected to Spirit, how can we be lost?  Where would we be if we were ‘found’?  It is quite a Mission to be in your body – which means feeling everything! And then to also cultivate your connection to the Other Side, to Spirit.

Having a Mission does not take away from feelings. In fact, the more open you are to Spirit and your Gifts, the more you will feel everything. And that in turn will either drive you crazy, or drive you more deeply into a relationship with Spirit. Which often means wading through some uncomfortable feelings and thoughts about yourself and your life first, before your Gifts and Talents grow as you become a clearer channel for the Great Flow from Above.

If you want to awaken all of humanity then awaken all of yourself. If you want to eliminate the suffering in the world, then eliminate all that is dark and negative in yourself. Truly, the greatest gift you have to give is that of your own self-transformation ~ Lao Tzu

Feeling lost happens before a breakthrough. Like the Tower card in the Tarot, the way must first be cleared before something new can grow. Forest fires promote plenty of healthy new growth after the destruction. The flooding of the Nile wipes out all, while fertilizing and preparing for new growth. Embrace being ‘lost.’ It is only your ego, your old ways of defining and validating some part of your Earth self. Float with it. It is only a cycle and all of life is cyclical.

Use feeling lost as a time to let go, to not know. Become a beginner again, instead of an old stale know-it-all. It is a fragile time as well, so play, choose companions carefully during this period, sleep more, exercise more. Forgive yourself over and over, as you clear the path, again. Allow Spirit the room to make you born again. Step out of the way. Float. Wear water wings if it makes you feel safer. It is okay to be gentle.

Being ‘lost’ is a huge and wonderful event in the roller-coaster of life. Use your deepening Faith to ride the tide. It can be and will be thrilling to move into a new space – one defined not by you, but by your Guardians, Guides, Higher Self, Angelic forces, Soul. Be willing to live in wonder and wonderment for some time. It will not last forever.
