There are times that I feel a lack of love and connectedness from my husband. He says that during those times he feels 'hollow' and life seems empty and futile. From my perspective I feel 'shut out' and unable to assist. What is going on?
He is describing the feelings of someone with a closed heart. Life suddenly loses its magic for someone during this time. There is a sad satiety that hangs over the day. The person has lower energy levels and wants to sleep more.
- Lack of the B vitamins
- Obsessive and, unusually intense, immersal in activity.
- Over-focused attachment to outcome (trying obsessively to achieve something, or vicariously engaged in another's outcome, like the Super Bowl).
What to Do to Open the Heart
- Take daily vitamin B12
- If the person has depression or anxiety, use the Pekana homeopathic remedy: Psy-stabil — 20 drops in a bit of pure water, three times a day away from food
- Go out in nature and try and make physical contact with the earth or trees
- Don't make any important life's decisions during such a time. Be aware that it is temporary and try to ride it out.
- Let your Inner Nurturer pamper you and sleep as much as you'd like.
- Drink a cup of St. John's Wort tea every day, for a month.
- Physical exercise helps some individuals.
What you are experiencing is the way most humans feel every day. This is a good inspiration to treat others with compassionate understanding. Empathy (which most highly evolved people have) could therefore feel this hopelessness and futility just by being around the humans in your everyday life. Be aware that you are experiencing their perspective and not your own. Interact sparingly, take time to 'decompress' when you get back home to your sanctuary and soak in bath salts once a week; read or watch something that inspires you every day.
