In ‘normal’ life we tend to fill our days with events, physically moving from one place to the next or physically connecting to other people. Now there is less of that but it opens up time for something we’re not so used to doing anymore on a daily base: to really connect to ourselves. Time to really process events of the past, our actions, time to pray, meditate, or connect in other spiritual ways. And in the same way connect to others spiritually.
I saw a movie on Facebook today of a woman who said goodbye to her dying husband, who she wasn’t allowed to visit in hospital, by singing a beautiful song over the phone. Of course it is extremely sad that she wasn’t allowed near him physically but looking at death as passing to other spheres it is beautiful at the same time that she was able to connect to him as a spiritual being with her soul and her voice. Like she probably still does now.
It’s something I have experienced the past few weeks while sharing songs that I just feel like I need to sing (for myself in the first place) on my YouTube channel: connecting with new people, new colleague musicians, getting lovely feedback from people in other countries who sometimes share personal stories, deepening friendships with old friends abroad and more. It opens up so much space to focus on these energetic connections without moving around all the time. And we wouldn’t even need the phone or internet for that. We can do it all alone in our houses. But we need time and a quiet mind for it.
Maybe we don’t usually have enough time to deeply and spiritually process everything that is happening. But isn’t that sometimes worth more than another physical visit or journey to here or there? We’re all here temporary and life is fragile but that deep feeling of love, connection, God, spirit, energy, however you wanna call it, will always be there, even if you get sick yourself, or if your beloved people are away physically or not on earth anymore. So maybe we should take more time to focus on it, train it, and appreciate it more. Be quiet and enjoy! Happy Easter to all of you!
