Affirmations for Emptiness and Loneliness

Affirmations for Emptiness and Loneliness

I will break through the illusion of emptiness. This affirmation is about the holes that suffering creates. Know that emptiness is an illusion. No matter how much you have suffered, your soul sees you as whole.

Affirm today that you share this vision and have the intention to allow the light of spirit to come in and fill any voids it may find. To aid in this repair, close your eyes and see white light surrounding you like a bubble or cocoon. Visualize the light filling the entire space within you, seeking out rifts, tears, holes, and gaps. Ask for these to be completely filled with light.

I will break through the illusion of being abandoned. This affirmation is about loneliness. One of the worst parts of suffering a great loss is the feeling of utter isolation. The problem of loneliness, which exists for countless people, requires deeper healing than simply seeking out company.

Loneliness can happen in a crowd and may feel most intense when you find yourself alone on a packed street. As a child it was easier to cure loneliness, because the presence of a parent was enough to offer reassurance. As an adult, loneliness becomes more existential it feels as if you have been abandoned, yet you cannot say by whom.

If you suffer from loneliness, have the intention to befriend yourself; as for spirit to comfort you with its presence, inviting it in with a meditation on the heart. End it by sitting quietly and asking to be allowed into the refuge of your heart. Feel your heart as a soft, warm enclosure; settle there with your attention, and rest as long as you wish. If you repeat this technique enough times, you will find that the presence of spirit is very real and accessible.

Adapted from The Deeper Wound: Recovering the Soul from Fear and Suffering, by Deepak Chopra (Harmony Books, 2001).

Many lonely people believe that they are the only person who have no friends or family etc but the truth is there are many people in the same boat which is very sad. Loneliness is one of the worst things to suffer from.

Camilla, emptiness IS an illusion. If a person has nothing to do and is bored out of her mind, then she starts to imagine that her life is empty. I work too hard to think of such things, so I have no time to think about emptiness or whatever such figments of imagination may be. :-)

I've always been lonely, so I don't care about this sentimental stuff for silly teenagers.
