I was sitting on a fluffy red rug in my mezzanine, overlooking the living room of my brand new Washington DC home.
My wife and I had bought the home just months before and everything was shiny and new.
I looked around for a few minutes at all the decorations and detail that had been put into the home. And then this thought popped up:
“This isn’t my home anymore.”
My marriage had just fallen apart and I felt totally disconnected from everything. At that moment, it felt like I had jumped over to a parallel life and didn’t recognize this one anymore.
4 months later, I was on a plane with my 140lbs Great Dane, moving to Portugal and leaving behind the country I had called home since I was 17.
The decision to move after the collapse of my marriage was surprising and intuitive.
I just felt completely disconnected from my old life. And it was frightening at times. I lost wife, house, friends, city, and country. All in a matter of months.
And from all the emails I get, my story isn’t rare.
So many people are going through life changes, where they awaken to something deeper but at the same time, lose so much of their old lives in the process.
If you’re one of those people whose life has changed dramatically and you feel disconnected from the people/places/things around you, this week’s video is for you.
I’m breaking down the process of disconnection, what it is, and why so many of us (especially during a spiritual awakening) go through it.
Here’s what you’ll learn:
1. What disconnection is and why it happens?
2. The 5 characteristics of disconnection so you know how to spot it right away.
3. 4 powerful tips to help you stay grounded and at peace while experiencing disconnection.
Here’s the audio version of this video:
The truth is, disconnection doesn’t have to be as dramatic as mine was. We all disconnect from people, place, or things at some point in our lives.
That friend you used to hang out with all the time and now you’re no longer connected?
The job you outgrew way back when?
The ex-boyfriend you thought you were going to spend the rest of your life with?
These are all examples of disconnection. But here’s the kicker:
When we have a spiritual awakening, we’ll probably experience several quick and dramatic disconnections all at once.
And that’s when the tips and advice I detail in this video will come in handy.
