Have you ever felt alone, unworthy, and unloved or experienced heartbreak, a lack of confidence in yourself, and/or a longing for someone or something more? I know that most of us have experienced some or all of these feelings before and as a result I hope this video is helpful to you in some way, shape, or form.
Below is a video I recorded for a man who wrote in to me and shared his story about the place of pain that he was finding himself stuck in. This was the first video I ever recorded for a stranger (non-client) and it was before I had this website built so I recorded the video on Zoom so that I could actually send it to him (I apologize for the less-than-great audio and video quality).
In the video I help this man understand how and why we long for people who are no longer a part of our lives and how to attach to the pain that comes with this longing in a way that is helpful to us and inspires our growth and our healing. I also give him some energy tools for balancing out the energies within whenever we feel empty or overwhelmed with thoughts of other people, places, or things.
Give it a look and let me know what you think. I am very aware that some things I talk about in the video seem too hard to believe, but I read a quote recently that I truly love and it is “Don’t ask if it’s real, ask if it’s useful”. Haha. That stuck with me. So if it feels good to you, try it. These tools are ones I’ve learned over the years and they help me every time.
Below is what this man wrote to me. I call him Edward:
“Truly, if to be honest, I feel as though I am heartbroken over a previous marriage. I am stuck also in grief after also losing my mom at the same time as divorce. Now feeling very lonely though in a relationship and question a lot do I matter. Don’t understand why this loneliness is kicking in. Sorry, I’m just all over the place with my emotions and trying to get back to a place of confidence.“
I hope this video was helpful to you. If the video opened up other thoughts or feelings that you hadn’t considered before, I’d love to hear them. If the video helped you or caused you to question things in your own life, let me know about it and let me know if you’d like me to record you a free video response to offer whatever insights I may have that might be of help to you.
To the man who wrote in to me: I just wanted to say thank you. Thank you for trusting me with your tenderness and your truth. I feel so honored and grateful for you.
With love and gratitude,
