In this crazy life, all of us go through periods where we feel lost, hopeless, and simply at our wits end. However, true lost souls go through more intense periods of disassociation and confusion than the rest of us, and sometimes, they feel like their true path in life has evaded them. Lost souls truly have so much potential to uplift the energy of the planet, but they just have to cut through all the pain and false beliefs in order to find themselves again.
If you are a lost soul, you might look around at the world and not understand your place here. You might feel like you can’t connect with others, and simply wander around aimlessly searching for the answers you so desperately seek. In this lifetime, lost souls are pretty prevalent, as we all have to learn how to navigate the mysteries of life and figure things out on our own.
Here are 3 signs you may be a lost soul:
1. You feel disconnected from others.
Lost souls feel like it’s them against the world, and feel very threatened by other people. They don’t have much desire to connect with anyone else, and put their walls up anytime someone tries to get too close. They live through their ego, so they cannot offer themselves unconditional love, and therefore, can’t give it to others either. You feel you walk this world alone, and have little to no faith than anyone will understand you. Lost souls take longer to find their true selves than others, so if you feel this way a majority of the time, don’t become discouraged.
Simply go within more, and all the answers will come to you in due time.
2. You fall back into bad habits repeatedly.
Since lost souls feel they have no purpose here on this planet, they use their time to engage in bad habits in order to take their mind off of reality for a while. You might find yourself running back to drugs, alcohol, bad foods, or other harmful substances in an attempt to mask the pain of isolation and confusion you feel, but this will only put a Band-aid over the real problem. Lost souls don’t feel like they even belong on this planet, so they do everything they can to forget about their existence here. However, you need to use all that energy into something more productive and helpful to you, such as creative outlets like drawing or writing. Using toxic substances will only block your energy further, and backfire in the end.
3. You feel you have nowhere left to turn.
Lost souls have searched themselves and this planet far and wide for answers, but still feel stuck in life. They don’t have the motivation to continue looking, and feel any further attempts are futile. Lost souls can easily get sucked back into negative thinking patterns, and would rather stay put in this state of misery than work on creating more positive habits. Lost souls hold onto their pain dearly, because they fear what would happen if they let it go. They feel they would be nothing without their past, and so they cannot venture into the future.
However, a lost soul must understand that in order to thrive on this planet, they must reopen their wounds and truly let them heal this time. Masking the pain will only perpetuate feelings of emptiness and hopelessness, so you must put on a brave face and look your ego in the eye. Tell it that it no longer can hold the reigns, because it doesn’t serve your best interest. The ego thrives on weakness, so if you stand up to it, it knows that you’re the boss. Lost souls give into their egos far too easily, but by doing so, you block out true love. You literally put up a wall that says “Love isn’t welcome here.” And without love, not much can be accomplished, including allowing your highest self to run free at last.
While the journey into one’s soul isn’t the easiest or most comfortable thing in the world, you must take the ride to unearth your real self that’s been hiding behind the mask. Lost souls simply need to be reminded that the persona they’ve shown the world isn’t really them; it’s just their hurt ego putting on a show.
Lost souls, remember that you get to decide how you will feel at any moment, and you can choose to reinvent yourself starting today. You don’t have to give in to feelings of despair, because you have more power than you could ever know. Realize your inner strength, and the whole world will start to look like a brighter, more inviting place.
