More and more people are picking up their smartphones to keep up with social media, posting their lives online and watch others do the same. I see people at concerts and public events taking video and watching the experience that is unfolding right in front of them through a tiny little screen, therefore missing the whole purpose of being there in person in the first place. If you wanted to watch what was going on instead of experiencing it first hand, stay home and pull up a You Tube clip. People are missing out on life all together.
The more we are plugged in, the less connected we are to our lives and our loved ones. We are also less connected to ourselves and to spirit.
It is so important to spend time unplugged from everything. Leave your phone at home and take a walk in the woods to be with yourself and connect with the universe. Be a part of the world and it’s beauty. Take time to close your eyes and breathe in the fresh air and the silence.
We are all spirits who are housed within a physical body. Not only do we need to take care of this one body we have been given for this lifetime, we also have to take care of our souls, our connection to spirit and to each other.
We have been given this time on Earth to experience life and to learn and grow from it. Our living family members, Spirit Guides and loved ones who have passed, who want to connect with us aren’t being given the chance to be noticed because our attention is glued to electronic devices.
Don’t live this life in a virtual world. Connect to what matters.
