Disconnecting from the World to Reconnect with God

Some days feel like you’re on a wheel, just running and running to no avail. It’s like there’s no destination, no true progress, only the endless path of monotony. In this cycle it’s so easy to begin feeling worthless; like your actions are just a part of someone else’s vision instead of your own. And honestly, without crafting a vision for yourself, it’s true!

Our vision has to be so strong and so clear that it’s impossible for anyone to shake it. We have to believe in ourselves and our abilities more than we believe the lies that we tell ourselves that make us feel small and insignificant. I have a friend, let’s call him Jeff, that I’ve been advising to write a vision for his life for years. He tells me that he already has one and he knows what he wants his life to look like. However, when he’s all alone, and no one is telling him what to do, he freezes and lets his thoughts keep him from taking action. Jeff only lets this happen because he believes the things that the world has said about him more than he believes the things he’s created about himself. 

A man without vision is sure to perish. We have to see what we want out of life and believe that we’re actually capable of receiving it. When I was in high school, I felt like I was the most depressed I could ever be in my life. I hated my life, where I was living, my financial situation, the way people treated me. It felt like my life was crashing in. Junior year I sat down and spoke with my counselor who helped me write out a plan of what I wanted to do with my life. I didn’t have all the details, but I knew I wanted to go to college, meet new people, and get the hell out of Tulsa, Oklahoma. I made up my mind right then that my life would be different, better. And I fought to make it happen. 

This happened three other times in my life, and I’m in the midst of it happening again. Each time feels tougher and tougher to align with your higher self to pull out the vision that you have for yourself. But, what I’ve learned is that it only feels tougher because of the feelings that life challenges bring us. We know these as traumas. We even create feelings from things we hear and see that we haven’t personally experienced. All these things act to disconnect us from our higher self which makes it nearly impossible to hear the voice of God and see the vision that you have for your own life. 

To change this, we have to disconnect from the world and reconnect with our higher self which is always connected to source energy. Meditation, prayer, and hobbies help clear out all the noise of the world and make this possible. From there, we can create a clear vision for our lives and even a plan to add action to the process. The important thing to remember with this is to steal away by disconnecting from the world as often as possible. This disconnection from work, phones, tv, and people for a brief period helps us to master our truest state. It brings us in closer alignment with our authenticity and drives away the ability for outside sources to penetrate our faith, focus, and self-confidence. 

Disconnection doesn’t mean utter isolation. It means getting away from the normal noise and chaos to hear the voice of God. It will never lead you astray. It will never ask you to do things that will hurt you. It will always call you to rise. It may put you in situations that will make you uncomfortable, but the discomfort only comes because of the fear of the unknown. Trust that God will never call you to something you’re not ready for. Your isolation and connection to him via your higher self will always help you discern what’s right and what’s wrong. 

When your vision is rooted in God, there is nothing that can burn you out, break you, or cause you to stop believing in yourself. You may be down, but you’re never out. Understanding that God’s voice leads and guides and your voice creates is the secret to unfolding the life of your desires. Choosing to cloud it with the weight of the world will always distract you from your one true purpose. Disconnect to reconnect and watch how God moves in your life.
