This article struck a cord with me as I experienced the same thing after my hip replacement … Paula Cas
We all have moments when we feel a little bit off or just not quite in tune with our spirituality, intuition, or inner voice. But what do we do when we feel completely disconnected for days or weeks at a time?
Unlike those small “off” moments, which can be triggered by relatively innocuous things like annoyance, brief lack of confidence, or just a plain old bad day, disconnection generally has larger roots. Grief, depression, serious illness, surgery*, and new medications are all things that can and do vastly affect us on physical, emotional, and metaphysical levels. But in these instances, knowing the cause isn’t necessarily helpful, as they are not circumstances that we can easily change.
So, what do we do?
The big answer—and the one I most often have trouble with—is patience. Like any other mental or emotional blockage, very often it’s just something your body and mind have to work their way through. But “be patient” is terrible advice, right? You are already stressed, it’s like telling you to calm down. So, here are a few things to try while you’re waiting:
Continue with routine as soon as possible
The causes that landed us in this state are also often things that disrupt our lives anyway. The quicker that you can get back to some semblance of your “normal” life, the better.
Create new rituals
Whether you can continue with routine or not, maybe you need something new. Here we want simple daily things that are not strenuous or time consuming. Try something like ending each night writing down one thing that went well, or one thing you are grateful for. Or lighting a candle for a cause that you believe in, or a person/people you’d like to help.
In whatever way works for you (we have some tips on that). If it allows you to feel something, great! If not, hopefully it helps a bit with the relaxation you almost assuredly need.
Make time for fun
This one can be hard, I know. But, as hokey as it sounds, your inner child does need a chance to roam. And play is so important, for all creatures. If you are physically able, a hike or even a short walk in nature can do wonders, and in the spirit of play I am rarely one to say no to a turn on a swing set. You might also try having coffee or lunch with friends, or simply chatting on the phone or over text. If being social isn’t your thing (or it’s too taxing due to the current situation), maybe you could splurge on a new book you’d been wanting to read, borrow a favorite from the library (e-books, looove), or veg out in front of the tv with that series you’ve been meaning to watch.
Don’t force it
Not yourself, nor any of these suggestions. I can’t emphasize this enough. Do. Not. Force. It. You might be tempted to bargain or make deals—“If I do this every day, I’ll be back to normal a month and a day from now.”—don’t. Added pressure will likely only make things worse. We all heal at different rates and in different ways. And as much as this might not feel like healing, I assure you, it is.
Remember that all things are cyclical. You may feel lost, maybe even like you’ve veered off the path and cannot see a way through. But if all of life is a circle, eventually the fog has to clear, and you will find your way back.
*For the sake of clarity, disclosure, and all of that soul-baring fun(?) stuff, here’s a bit of personal insight from Melankalia:
I had surgery two weeks ago. For the first time. Out-patient, all went as expected (barring something of a major panic-attack coming out of anesthesia, NOT fun), recovery, healing, and physical therapy are all going well. All good things.
But I feel weird. There are mobility issues, the pain meds are not quite agreeing with me, and my stamina is sort of laughable, but these are things I expected and accounted for. What I did not expect was to feel so very disconnected metaphysically, and (somewhat) emotionally. I don’t know if it’s the physical trauma of surgery, a sensitivity to the new foreign bodies embedded in my flesh, lingering effects of being flooded with various medications, or just some chaotic out-of-whack result of all of the above. But I just don’t feel….right. My intuition, the “voices in my head”, my connection to deities and to nature all feel muted. And now I am just biding my time…and trying to take my own advice.
But, I know, or at least I believe, that in time I’ll be feeling more me again. And if you’re reading this, and struggling, I believe that eventually you will be okay again, too.
Do not fear or dread Mercury Retrograde. This popular nonsense about Mercury Retrograde being hellish, horrible and time to lock yourself away until it’s all over is all misguided and overwrought.
Mercury moves Retrograde on average about 1/3 of the year. We need to sleep 8 hours a day which is also 1/3 of our entire lives. Nature always does everything in balance. Even though Mercury Retrograde is an apparent illusion, it appears real and the planets are also symbolic indicators for us to take our cues from. Mercury Retrograde is a natural time to rest whenever it occurs. All you drilled in non-stop worker drones need to chill …

A short excerpt from Michelle’s bio on her website:
Intuition is a funny thing. Many families, schools lack methods in teaching a kid to trust their inner knowing and or the differences in how our senses work and provide this information. My acute intuitive skills started in early childhood, around the age of five. As a child, I was able to walk into a room and sense people’s feelings and thought processes. To me this was normal. Everyone can do this right? Some call it “déjà vu”. For me it was simply overwhelming. No one teaches a child how to handle knowing that your parents are going to get a divorce before they got one or that a family friend is a molester. Hearing or sensing things that felt hurtful or threatening created a scenario that caused me to learn how to dim my senses, i.e. a lamp switch. What people with high intuitive senses find out is that doing this seldom works. So instead I learned how to verify information. Several near death experiences proved to me that something far bigger than myself could literally stop cars and change the direction of my life. I would hear, see and feel the energy around me that would guide me, whether into being awarded $10M sales contracts or to preventing me from walking into harmful situations. My Soul longed for information. Many mentors now peers provided this. Ask and you will receive…
My skill set is as a clairaudient, clairvoyant, clairsentient and Energetic Practitioner allow me to access and work with the energetic information we call “Soul Fragments”. Working with an individual’s “Innate Spirit” or their Being back to origin is my gift.
Using such resources, I have successfully provided my clients with a variety of services and assistances. Many say that I have assisted them to find greater happiness, personal health, clear direction, financial abundance and increased knowledge of themselves, others and their life purpose on Earth.
