Home Sweet Home
The psyche experiences the feeling of wanting to return ‘home’ but without knowing what ‘home’ is.
At some stage during the development process there is a feeling that awakens somewhere deep within. That feeling is an expression of your consciousness awakening to the realisation there is an energy bigger than the expression of the personality self.
As the essence self begins to play a larger part in your everyday life, the personality self begins to recognise the beauty of this part of you. It is a new world for the personality self as it begins to really feel the connection between the inner and outer reality. The psyche experiences this as the feeling of wanting to return ‘home’ but without knowing what ‘home’ is.
The Call Home
The call home starts with an increase in co-incidence, dreams that turn out to be premonitions, the desire for more meaning to your home, work, and personal life. It often starts with an increase in emotions which are more readily ignited the moment you watch for instance, something poignant on television or you find yourself avoiding newspapers because you can’t cope with the negativity portrayed within the stories. You then start dreaming of events that happened a long time ago, replaying them in your mind, feeling the emotion of them in your sleep.
People you haven’t seen or heard from in years start returning to your life. You come into contact with people who remind you of the past. Their character will be very similar to an unfinished energy of years gone by. It all feels rather surreal and distanced from your normal everyday reality.
The aloneness then begins, it is not necessarily a physical aloneness, the people around you are often the same people but you begin to feel distanced from them. Their world somehow no longer matches your world, it begins to feel as though they can’t ‘see’ or recognise who you are. The ability to pretend has disappeared, the need for a depth to relationships seems impossible to avoid. Your honesty within the self increases dramatically. You can’t help but say what you mean. The longing for ‘home’ then begins.
The saying ‘Home is where the heart is’ is appropriate to describe the experience. The ‘heart’ within this feeling is the heart of where your essence self comes from. The feeling is the remembering of the spirit self and its existence. When we first pass into the physical realms (birth) we forget the essence self as the ego or personality self starts to take form. It is a necessity for the ego self to make its presence known and to establish its existence in order to provide its function of protecting the physical body. When though, the emotions have matured the desire to engage the essence self becomes a feeling that’s impossible to ignore.
The maturing of the emotions is not dependent on age. A teenager, for instance, could find their emotional maturity is more progressed than their parents or grandparents. The emotional maturity is the beginning of the opening process to the deeper parts of the psyche. When this happens, there is a connection that happens deep in the solar plexus. This is the time we begin to process the unprocessed emotions so the system is calm enough to ‘hear’ properly and the emotion of fear in its proper place. Fear is there to protect the physical body it is not there to dictate the soul’s progress.
The opening to the feeling of wanting to return ‘home’ is the beginning of the healing of the emotion we are all blighted with. We all carry the human fear of abandonment. Somewhere in our psyche we believe ourselves to be separated from what has created us here in our physical lifetime. We all come here with it for some reason. It manifests in a literal sense of feeling separated from our ‘creator’ or it shows in our relationships in life.
We end up being the one who abandons or who is abandoned. We either leave before we are left or we find people leave us. This often kicks into the psyche when things are going very well, we start looking for the time it’s all going to fall down and create in the psyche that feeling of being abandoned even before it may or may not happen. For instance, a job or relationship is going really well and we panic and leave. Or you as the one who has been left. It’s all going well in your view, then suddenly the axe falls and it disappears. You’re left wondering what happened.
The psyche has from the outset this inaccurate view that we are separate. It therefore reinforces the view we are separate by creating abandonment. Very few people can accept from the outset in life that nothing is above us, nothing in this world is more important, more intelligent or more worthy than us. We are all equal, all of the same substance. When we start to remember ‘home’ we are beginning to remember we are not separate, we are not abandoned, fear is only part of the physical realms there to protect the body.
The essence self is an energy, it is a purity. This purity as a sensitive is something we begin to remember so the longing for ‘home’ begins. As this starts up, our emotions become more sensitive and we begin to ‘see’ more layers of the psyche which is why our psychic ability increases. As this happens, the emotions then need to rebalance. To do this, the psyche begins to eliminate anything and everything it doesn’t need.
That’s why you become more emotional, seemingly more vulnerable, and a feeling of aloneness can become overwhelming. People who have triggered emotional responses in the past start to resurface in your life or people who remind you of those experiences start to spring up.
The important thing to remember is that this is only temporary. It is a transitional phase. The psyche begins to settle the process down by pushing through any unhealed aspects. Once those have moved through, the reunion with ‘home’ is incredible. This is nirvana, enlightenment, whichever name you want to give it. It is worth the transition into a deep sense of peace.
To get there means crossing the bridge of internal trust. We know when we are close, the feeling of home is near. Then we begin to find the bridge of trust that remains hidden until the point at which we are ready to cross.
From then on, fear is temporary, our psyche moves effortlessly in the right direction and our psychic ability becomes something bigger than our own needs. We begin to give, without any expectation or desire for it to be returned for we are at ‘home’ within ourselves…
