Within you, lies a vast river of knowledge, clarity, healing, and imperfect perfection. Tuning in to your Self (and I write this with a capital S, because it deserves much respect), tunes you directly into the Source that created you. The power and wisdom that makes your heart beat, makes your eyes blink, and makes the plants grow. The same wisdom that grows a plant from seed (yes, even if GMO), or a baby in womb. So then it stands as such a shock that the mass majority of this planet goes reaching for their cellphone or iPad upon waking to greet the day, depend upon the internet for “connection,” or look outside of the themselves for the answers. Yes, we all have done it. Yes, we all need guidance from time to time (true guidance, that strives to connect us to our own innate wisdom). The true spiritual and physical masters on this planet provide the same guiding light: trust yourself, trust your body, tune into YOU. And any wisdom that assists you in doing that is authentic and pure. Use discriminating discernment in the discovery process of what is REAL.
We have come to a time on this planet where it is extra important to release the need for external validation or verification. It is healthiest to disconnect entirely from every source of social media and live with real-to-the-feel authenticity as we have operated over millennia. How can one tune truly into Self when they spend their days scrolling through the gloss and veneer that others (with a validation-driven & ego-based intent) blast the internet with daily. Oh, the Era of Selfies! When deep insecurity and fakeness take the center stage. Well, they can have that center stage on whatever faux platform they are performing on. It is crumbling. And what remains is our true divine connection. The unique beats of our loving hearts. The sparkle that is in every person’s eyes. The community gardens and deep warm hugs. Let us call back the Sacred!
I gently recommend that you click “delete” on your Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter accounts. See how that changes the way you feel on the day-to-day. Take time for reflection, having your favorite beverage, a morning walk, connecting with your partner/pets/children/plants upon waking instead of click click click scroll scroll scroll on your EMF blasting device. Try it! Like a digital detox of sorts. At first you will be feeling some sort of significant shift as you no longer look to those sources for connection and entertainment. You will feel space from the people that you have been keeping updated on your daily happenings. And come on, let’s be honest, if someone is thousands of miles away and you are pretending that they are right there with you to not feel lonely – is that real? If the web shut down and you lost cell service, where are you and where are they? I am not referring to separation, by the way. That is illusion. We are all interconnected within the real Web of Life.
This can be a rude awakening to the way this society currently operates, but that’s okay. “At first the truth will piss you off, and then it’ll set you free.”
The social media cleanse feels so good! And something within says YES!!!! Let’s call back natural ways, tune into Self, detox digitally. And the connection will be so much stronger.
