I woke up in the middle of the night. I couldn’t make myself go back to sleep and I was pretty inconsolable in my loneliness so I meditated and talked to Archangel Michael instead. I asked him the importance of experiencing the difficult feelings such as pain, loneliness and grief. This is what he said:
When we’re in any of these difficult feelings, we become more aware. We begin to ask questions, seek meaning and connections in things around us. Our hearts are more open because it’s crying, it’s bleeding and it asks for comfort. We reach out for help; we pray to God, we crave the presence of our family, our friends, our partners. We are more grateful for the little acts of kindness that we get from strangers. The peace and steadiness of nature comfort us.
When we’re in pain, we become small. We begin to see the importance of other people. In our deepest of hearts, we want to bond, we want to merge with others. There are certain things that we can’t provide for ourselves. That’s why we need those difficult feelings. They make us want to connect. They make us realize that what matters is life is not status nor wealth, but the quality of our relationships and the depth of the love that holds us together.
