A Message from the Universe ~ Personal Space and Alone Time
Today’s Message from the Universe reminds you that time to be alone is a necessity, and your dreams are important to you at this time.
You may be in a living situation that affords you little privacy, or you could be actively avoiding being alone. Either way, alone time is vitally important to the health of your mind, body, and spirit. It’s time now to evaluate how much alone time you have and the quality of how you use that time.
If you’re living in a situation where personal space doesn’t seem to exist, you’re going to have to get creative. You might wear headphones or take a nightly walk. Throw a blanket up as a divider, or a “do not disturb” sign. All this is more easily achieved if you make your intentions and boundaries clear to those who share a space with you.
Between work, family, and friends, you might not feel like you want to do anything in your limited downtime but stare at a screen. This has, unfortunately, become the norm as our society is built to squeeze every last drop from you. It’s time to set some boundaries for anyone and anything that requires your time and attention. Obviously, this will be easier for some than others, but the more difficult it is, the more it’s needed.
If you’ve got little ones at home who are old enough to understand basic communication, this is a great time to teach them about privacy and personal space. Of course, they will test you but keep it up! It will become the norm if you stay consistent.
If you are spending all your time with your significant other, you may be in danger of losing sight of who you are as an individual. Relationships that allow for personal space are relationships that thrive and happy individuals who have more to give.
Though sleep is not necessarily the alone time we’re speaking of, it contributes greatly to all areas of your life. Re-assess your bedtime routines and start trying to write down your dreams whenever you remember them. Even if you only write one word, you are training your brain to remember more. Your dreams are where some of the biggest healing and problem solving occurs, even when you don’t remember them. Before you go to sleep, count your blessings and set your intentions to remember your dreams and/or solve a particular problem.
Overall, prioritizing your alone time is not just good for you, it’s good for those you share your space with. This is especially true if you share your space with children. Teach them self-care instead of burnout.
