Anyone else feeling relief? I think that's the best emotion I can use to describe it.
I am normally a ball of panic. Panic that leads to depression, and eventually I shut down. I shut out everyone, and close off like I am wounded. I dont know how else to explain it. I feel whats around me, and I take it in as my own pain.

But lately, I feel better. I dont know how to express how much of a load off my shoulders has been released. I will admit, reading most of whats posted on this site, depresses me. So I made a point of only reading the good posts, and trying to spread a little bit of joy in this rather large but small world.

You see, recently I have been having some one-on-one time with my soul. I think this is a good way to describe it. I grew up in a pretty non religious house. So when I was a teenager, I reached out to churches. I taught vacation bible school for a local Thanksgiving Lutheran Church. It was the only church in the area that made me feel the joy in the room. But eventually I stopped going and fell into the pattern of forgetfulness. I think a lot of it has to do with how I view God.

I see him as a different person, or light, than whats taught in the Bible. I dont personally think I would ever be punished for my views on the goodness in this world. I just see it through different eyes.

I see a lot more negativity in this world than I ever think there should be. I see the hatred, and the pain that souls are put through, and it torments me. It wasnt until recently that I had to cleanse myself of all of it. I realize now that bad things happen to good people because their souls are so light that it attracts the darkness. These are our trials. We are supposed to love and spread joy, but somehow over time, we have become so desensitized that we only see the bad. We have stopped processing our emotions, and now rely on pills to suppress them so we forget. But the emotions are still there. They make us sick, disease us, and a lot of people dont even know its happening to them.

Has anyone else felt a load be released? I feel like something amazing is on the horizon. I dont know if its good or bad. I dont know if we will go through hell, before an amazing transformation happens, but I am open to it all. I am for the first time, in a very long time, happy. Its not forced happiness, its genuine. I love myself. I love my body, I love my soul. I feel cleansed of the hate. I hope I am not alone.

I find I cant watch the news, I cant see bad images. I cant erase what I have seen of the brutality of this world, but I can reach out with my soul for a little goodness, and receive it. I find that my soul is sensitized again. I cant even stand shows that I once loved like criminal minds or law and order. Because I cant for the life of me, justify watching garbage that is all about the evil in life. I couldn't ever even watch The Walking Dead or Dexter because they sickened me.

I think a lot of the panic that is going around lately is because something big is coming. And our souls know it. We must make our peace. We must learn to love again and raise our harmonic vibrations with this Planet. We must become one. I know.... damn hippies.

This is just my opinion. You may disagree with it, or poke holes in it, or find the negative in everything. Or you can open up your mind a little bit and just allow yourself to feel good about yourself. You can smile more, open up a door for a stranger. Make genuine contact with the people around you and spread a little bit of cheer in this dank world that has lost itself.

We focus on race, we focus on religion, we focus on hating everyone around us. I wonder why. Could it be that it is forced down our throats on a daily basis. Could it be our petty government fights that are so blatantly thrown at us constantly all day on the news. It lowers us, it makes us no better than whats around us. We lose our light.

I have forgotten over the years to love myself. To genuinely look at myself in the mirror and smile at me. To feel my smile reach my eyes. I dont know, I just hope I am not the only one who feels this way. I hope others feel the joy.

I just thought I would post something positive, because I see a lot of negative. Hopefully others will share their joys and we can keep this going for a long time.

I am going to go take a shower. And by the time I come back I truly hope to see something positive posted.

I went to bed late, but woke up so happy. I danced to my own tune today.

Yep, Don't really know why, either. I am terrified of much that is going on, esp. Fuki. (I live on the west coast, have two grandkids) I have many personal hard core issues too.

But, I feel better lately. Lighter, happier, unafraid.
I'll take it.

What's positive to you
I would give if I knew
For one's evil can be
Another's justice creed

Relief's not mine to feel
For me it be surreal
With each taste of relief
A tinge of anxious leaf

Blowing apart to start
A new tune from a heart
Not ready to depart
From hope outside a chart

That change you made, I saw
Will it wonder with awe
Or rather stall a call
Or bring you to a fall

If you are depressed, you are living in the past. If you are anxious, you are living in the future. If you are at peace, you are living in the present.

I feel the same exact way you do. Has anyone ever told you that you were an "empath"? If not, then you should research signs of being an empath. I have learned a lot since I learned that I was one. I know now why I feel the way I do and some ways to cope with it. Hope this helps! :-)

You know, I remember my MeeMaw telling me when I was younger that I was a sensitive. I thought it odd that she said A Sensitive rather than just saying I am sensitive. But I brushed it off thinking I wasnt anything special.

This may be the reason I find it hard to go into a big store like walmart or target when it is really busy. I get so overwhelmed in places where there are a lot of people. Which is odd because I genuinely like people.

Any tips on coping?

I guess it all has to do with the tone that you read it in. I have been through a lot in my 30 years. Things you couldn't even imagine. So my happiness after the hell I have been put through, is pretty dramatic to me and my life plan. I wasn't put here to spread more negativity. So me spreading my happiness, and praying for others, is an atonement for all the anger and hatred I had built up inside of me that was tearing my body apart.

I really hope you find your peace. In times like these, we all could use a little peace.

I say all this with the utmost respect for you. And in no way am I antagonizing you.

Re: Anyone else feeling relief? I think that's the best emotion I can use to describe it.
Yes, as a matter of fact for the last couple of days I have been feeling this very thing. You put it very well into words. It is so hard for sensitive people like you (and me!) to see all the horror and negativity in the world. I am trusting in my inner self and in love, come hell or high water. Also, I'm praying for, well---guns to malfunction--just like they did in an incident publicized today. Maybe you could join me in visualizing guns going limp and impotent and everyone laughing and being merry and the dark cloud just dissolving away....

Otherwise, it is a blessing to know there are people out there that are so tuned into goodness and open to love. You write well too. Carry on doing your lovely soul work!

Tip on being an empath (or sensitive) and not getting overwhelmed...

Teach yourself to observe but not engage.

Lots of us feel that "something on the horizon" and if I have learned anything over the last year it's that we create our own reality. What you expect to happen, will. The more you can "get your mind right" the easier that "shift" will be.

The joy/bliss/peace you can find is intense. No fear, fear kills.

Thank you! And yes that first link did describe me very well. I have always knows I have a problem of saying no, and taking others problems on like they are my own.

My husband calls me captain save a hoe, because I am constantly trying to help out a person in need and end up way over my head. Sometimes it has a good outcome, but more often than not I end up feeling used. I focus so much on the good in a person that I dont see that I am being taken advantage of until its too late.

Maybe this is why I wish I could be the crazy cat lady in the woods.

I did read about salt baths. I didnt know they could cleanse you! A few years ago I went to the mall and the dead sea salt guys told me I looked old (my husband laughed all the way to the car when I started obsessing over nonexistent wrinkles) and they convinced me to buy their entire line. The horror! But I got this salt body scrub. It really did make my skin super soft and very clean. But I just now put the correlation to how I was feeling at the time emotionally. I felt just as I do right now!

I gotta find some of that scrub again and try it again!
