Getting Lost and Reconnecting to Your Life
Many things happen that can strike us out of our connection to our lives, which make us feel that we can not live that we are supposed to be, and we begin to drift from one day to the next. For other people, we may sound solid and involved, but inside we feel trapped, lost, drifting or drowning. The primary source of these feelings is often a painful childhood dynamic. Later, something else could happen that evokes childhood events. At other times, singular events, such as accidents, the death of a loved one, or other traumas, may be the source. Often, too, it is a combination of both.
Dynamics of painful childhood
Children are naturally born as they are. Their nature is to be fully engaged in life on earth. You can see this with babies and little children, who are fascinated by objects, putting small objects into larger objects, turning them in all directions. They are excited to learn the names of things, curious about all that surrounds them. So often the way we are bound as children, the painful events that happen or the painful dynamics of childhood begin to make us feel trapped, lost or adrift and we lose our grip on our unique selves , On our enthusiastic commitment to life on the planet. There is always something in us that wants to be all that we are and to shake the trance, the trap, and live truly rooted in our lives, on earth.
Getting lost due to an accident
Here is an example of someone losing connection to herself and her life due to a serious bicycle accident. Even though her recovery from a broken bone couple was going well, several months after the accident, she still felt an echo of the horrible nausea, light head, sensation of rotation that occurred just after 'she fell. The original feeling was caused by the pain and trauma of his body. Working with an EFT practitioner, using EFT Tapping, she began to see herself metaphorically as a floating path in space, tied only by an umbilical cord to the earth far below. In a way, it was good to float up there, disconnected from the responsibilities of his life, nothing to fear, just drift up there. There was something seductive. But also, something felt bad: she realized that she was in danger of having her life passed, while she was in a trance.
Reconnect to your life
She wanted to reconnect to herself and her life, but she had no idea how to come back to earth. Using EFT Tapping, she stayed with her experience and suddenly it came to her that she could pull herself down through the umbilical cord - which she did. When she stood on the ground, she felt gravity clinging to her again. In his imagination, the umbilical cord fell back into the earth. She realized, however, that she still had a choice: she wanted to float or wanted to engage in her life. She had to make a conscious choice, and she chose to commit to her life. Interestingly, after that, she was more excited about her work, her relationships and her creativity than she had been for a long time.
Loss of self due to surgical trauma
Another person (modified biographical details to protect anonymity) ended up in a traumatic situation after surgery. Back in his room after the surgery, he could not breathe. He could not even hesitate and absolutely could not call. Fortunately, his friend was in the room and saw what was happening and called a nurse. This person felt trapped in his body and simultaneously felt it was too hard to stay here. He felt faint. For a long time he could no longer remain attached to his life. It was too difficult to face all the painful events that happen in his life. He felt like he was on earth and that he preferred being with God. Being a very religious person, he remembered that God is still there and realized that he was the one who had lost consciousness of the connection. Using EFT Tapping, he also understood that he wanted to deeply reintegrate his work, his family and his friends.
Reconnect to your life
This experience of getting lost can also happen when we lose someone we love, and for a number of other reasons. Somewhere inside, however, we all have a link with something that loves us unconditionally and knows everything about us. It is still there, but we can lose our conscious access to it. The good thing is that the knowledge of how to reconnect is in each of us, just waiting for us to notice it. The beginning often remembers a time when you felt the connection in the past, and think about that moment in detail. You will notice that when you do this, the feeling is always there inside you and, if you dig deep into it, you will be able to find yourself and find yourself reconnecting to your life.
