“THE WORLD IS A PSYCHIC SUPPORT GROUP”
No matter what hardships or triumphs I’m experiencing in my life, I know that I am not alone. There are always others out there who have gone through, or are going through the same thing, or something similar. We’re all just human beings needing to reach out to others both in times of sadness and joy. How comforting it is to know that there are people out there who understand us, and who can relate to what we’re going through. One of the worse things in the world is to feel utterly alone, with not even one other soul to turn to for help, companionship, and love. I know, because I’ve been there.
It was when I attended my first support group, and began to talk about my childhood, that I felt my loneliness begin to fade away. It was also then that I learned that no-one is ever really alone. Our souls connect in ways that most of us are not even aware of. We are all a part of a bigger collective of people, nature, animals, spirits, and others. We connect to others on a psychic level, whether we know it or not. I felt this when I looked into the eyes of the people in that support group. We had all gravitated to this same place together. Each of us had common threads in our childhoods, and together we wove a blanket of compassion that warmed the cold harsh reality of our shared experiences and pain. It did not matter where we had been born, what race we were, what social status we held, or how much money we had. In that group, we were all equal.
I cannot count the many times that I have gone to a certain place and met someone or a group of people who were going through something similar to me, or who had childhoods that echoed mine. I have gotten jobs and found that some of my co-workers could relate to the kind of mother I had, or the family history I came from. I have moved to neighborhoods and found that my neighbors had so much in common with me, that we could have come from the same backgrounds. This kind of thing happens all of the time in my life. Most people call it just a coincidence, but I like to believe that the world is a support group, and that we gravitate towards others we can relate to. They help us to heal, and we help them. Whenever I meet someone new, I try to find out what I can relate to about that person and what they can relate to about me. It’s always there.
When I talk to someone on the phone I always feel as if we have communicated with so much more than just the spoken word. There is also a psychic connection that goes beyond the reach of telephone wires.
When I go to the grocery store or anywhere else where there is a crowd, I come out feeling like I have communicated with so many people just by looking into their eyes.
We are all in this world together and none of us need be alone.
