Dear Loyal Readers,
For some reason letter form just feels right for this post. Since learning to trust myself has been a large piece of my personal work, I am going to act on it and trust myself.
I write to you today as a mother just shy of her son’s 7th angelversary and her father in law’s first angelversary. It has been some time since my emotions have had such intense physical effects on me. Certainly I am acquainted with my mind, body and spirit being intertwined, but normally I do not have as much trouble stabilizing my physical being.
This week has proven to be vastly different. Each day my physical being seems to be emitting a lower and lower vibration. My energy is so off that yesterday morning I awoke and did not get dressed until 2pm. This morning is a bit better. We had someone coming to the house at 9am, which forced me to shower! Albeit, it was after they came and went, but that’s just in the details. I am clean.
Twice today, panic descended on me and I was sure I was having a panic attack. Fortunately, I have never actually had one and did not have one today. The air felt like it was being sucked out of my lungs, my heartbeat was pounding in my ears and my legs felt weak. The scariest of those symptoms feeling devoid of air righted itself quickly and I was able to recover.
Nonetheless, it feels as though I am moving through a thick, sticky sludge when I walk. The pounding in my ears remains and the vibrations I am emitting make me not even want to be with myself. My brain repeatedly thinks about escaping my surroundings and then realizes it is not my surroundings, it is me!
There is no specific reason for my sadness, although any time I think of Christian or my father in law, tears spring to my eyes. Logically, that is the reason, but it is not openly manifesting as the cause of my depression. As I write this, my body feels as though it is swaying in space and my heart physically hurts.
My hope is that this letter finds you in a higher energy place, a more peaceful state of mind and closer to joy than I am right now. I know that feelings do not last forever, and that they will pass.
I write you in this state so that if you find yourself here, you may read this letter and experience confirmation that you are not the only person to feel this way.
With much love to you and Heaven,
