I Need to See Your Eyes (thoughts on the meaning and power of “in person” moments)!

UNIVERSAL ENERGIES VLOG
Hey there amazing light bringer of wondrousness!
Just got back from my workshop at the always, awesome Omega Institute in gorgeous upstate New York and regrouping before I pack to go to the Divine Wisdom Retreat in Scottsdale which is am uber excited about.
There really is no substitute for being with people in person.
I am a big internet fan, don’t get me wrong. My school The Invision Lab is all taught online as are my professional certification courses. I talk to you here. I show you my videos. I listen to you, I read pretty much all the posts on my public Facebook page and I personally reply to your stories.
We have a relationship here.
That said there is a false intimacy by always being online. All kinds of odd and irrational relating happen here too. People hate on you that don’t know a thing about you, forming opinions, being bullies or conversely put you on a pedestal. Everything seems open to interpretation.
It’s a weird way to connect and although we do get to stay in touch in cyberspace there’s a distinct shadowy aspect to it all too. Just look at what happens in a lineup in a store. Everyone’s heads are down looking into their phones instead of looking each other in the eyes.
We may be more connected to more things but we sure miss so much too.
This is why I love my in person events. I get to meet my fans and students in person. One of my favorite people came this weekend and because we hadn’t really been in touch much there was some insecurity about where we stood on some issues. We had the best reunion and she said afterward “I just needed to look you in the eyes”.
So much goes unsaid, misunderstood, and potentially lost in translation online.
Everything can be made whole by a hug, and honest talk in person, sharing your experience strength and hope in a group.
This intimacy can’t be replaced online.
So today, instead of just checking your Facebook page to see what your friends are up to. Pick up the phone. Let someone hear your voice. Better still go for coffee.
Hug them and most importantly look them in the eye.
That kind of intimacy is as real as it gets, as the eyes are the windows of the soul.
Love you all …
P.S. This is why I shoot a video for you every week—so you can see my eyes and know me just a little bit better even if we are online ;) Enjoy xooxoox
