Alone in a crowd


- by Owen Waters

The Christmas and New Year's Holidays are often a time of
gathering together for friends and relatives. The holidays can
also be a time when spiritually-aware people feel a certain
aloneness, even in the midst of a crowd.

It helps to know what can cause such a sense of loneliness,
and why it affects spiritually-aware people more so than
others. Your outer personality is designed to focus upon the
five senses and upon the experience of the outside world which
those senses deliver. As it says on our home page at

"Just as each snowflake is unique, so is each person. Your
primary purpose in life is to experience life from one
individual, unique point of view. You are an expression of
Infinite Being as it experiences itself from all possible

Your purpose here on Earth is to experience being an
individual, and that is exactly why a sense of isolation can
occur, especially during the holidays. Because we are all
connected within, we need to take a moment to go beyond the
separated appearance of a room full of individuals and recall
the inner connection that we share with the people around us.

Recalling that inner connection is not hard. At night, in the
deepest level of sleep, you reconnect with your soul family and
thrill at the union you all share. Soul families consist of
people who resonate to the same 'musical' tone of consciousness
as each other. Each person has a signature tone of
consciousness which represents who they are.

When you meet people in your soul family at night, you know
them by the unique signature tone of consciousness that
radiates from them. It doesn't matter how their spiritual body
appears to your sense of spiritual vision, you know them by how
their unique consciousness signal, their 'signature tone,'
feels to you.

Each person belongs to a primary group of soul mates which,
typically, numbers somewhere around eight souls. This primary
group vibrates in close harmony with other groups which, in
turn, vibrate in close harmony with still more groups. The
number of people in an extended soul family can easily stretch
to two thousand or more individuals. Among these, especially
the closer ones, are the people that you interact with in
meaningful ways as you pass through life on Earth together. In
fact, you plan your life as a soul before you begin your life
so that you can arrange to meet significant friends who will
help you through significant events and experiences in that

Part of your consciousness lives with the pure essence of your
soul family all the time, not just at night when the main focus
of your attention rises through the spirit realms to meet them.
It is your awareness of that soul family-connected part of
yourself which makes you yearn for the close community that you
experience in those other realms of consciousness.

The holidays are a good time to remember that, no matter how
different people appear to each other through their surface
personalities, deep down we are all one.

Feel the connection. Feel the love that binds all of life in
this universe together, and remember that, in the ultimate

"We are all Infinite Being."
