Connect to connect
We have a lot of human interaction on a daily basis. “Hi, how are you?” This is a very popular greeting. It is also a question when you ask it wait and listen, give that person their opportunity to answer. Avoidance is the deterioration of our social wellbeing. We are becoming a society that thrives on avoidance and loathes intimacy. Hiding behind phones and text messages.
The defining aspect that makes us inherently human is our ability to connect on various frequencies at various levels. Let me break it down, if you have zero interaction with other humans you are going to either become very isolated and depressed or you are going to stunt your growth and development. Human interaction is necessary, there is a time to be alone and you must honour this of course but when you choose to be around others give them your attention. We have this way of avoidance in personal connections, when we greet someone we should look them in the eyes, pause for a moment and appreciate the existence of another human in our presence. We do things so hastily because we are always in a rush, but the foundation of our healthy psychological makeup is our ability to feel our connections with our energies. Think about how much we lose when we fail to honour another person, with all our faults and problems, we are all humans on a journey and we need each other in order to learn lessons and experiences which help us to evolve everyday.

A lot of people I do healing on that are suffering from ailments be it psychological, emotional, physical, spiritual have one common theme. They are all extremely disconnected from their bodies. Our ability to slow down and value our human connections will transfer to our own abilities to connect with our minds and bodies. We need to experience really being in our bodies. This is one of the reasons I love yoga and sound meditation. When we do yoga we connect our breath to our movement and over time we strengthen our mind-body relationship. Body awareness results from a regular physical yoga practice.
Sound meditation such as Tibetan Bowls and Crystal Bowls have an immense effect on the senses and the energy centres, they allow energy to flow more freely. I personally practice playing Tibetan Singing Bowls and highly recommend it. In my own experience I had difficulty after being in a traumatic relationship many years ago to opening up my heart to connect with other people. I found sound meditation very helpful, I was able to use my senses to experience energy all over my body, this was one of my tools in releasing painful human experiences and transforming the trauma into joyful more opening and deeply connecting experiences. I was able to find my own internal connections and this allowed me to nurture external connections.

I know I am writing this blog at a time when most of us especially here in Melbourne cannot physically interact with others due to our pandemic crisis and government restrictions, but we have internet and technology. We can practice the same techniques on video calls. Let us try not to lose our most valuable quality of being human. Connecting and sharing the living experience in a real way with other humans.
From my soul to yours, Namaste, I salute the divinity and expression of the universal energy within you.
