I’ve been overcome with a sense of wanting to go home.
Are you feeling “homesick” too?
I attribute this feeling to the ascension process, the need to be in nature, find a new home (I am looking) as well as needing to be with my soul kin. Soul kin is family beyond bloodline.
As an empath, I tend to feel into the collective. In this case: homesickness. I notice lots of friends moving back “home.” We are at a key turning point.
Soul family may feel more intimate and satisfying than birth family because they instantly “get” you. It can feel like coming home when you are together or connecting with each other. You don’t even need to say anything, the energy can be so aligned and familiar.
And, we are healing our relationships with our ancestors or birth family or releasing them.
Homesickness can also be a sense of wanting to return to your cosmic, planetary origins. Starseed humans may feel a pull their whole lives as if they don’t belong here on earth. I even made a flower essence for that: Poet’s Shooting Star to learn how to ground and embody our gifts and find some sense of belonging or purpose for being here.
Or, going home can be spending time in nature. Entering the woods and remembering the wildness of your own nature. Maybe you’ve missed the time of being close to the earth… and your ancestors are calling. They were close to nature and the elementals, fairies, and ancestors of land.
I’ve had this experience often. After visiting Panther Creek Waterfall, I began weeping with sadness when we had to leave. The forest felt like it was my true home.
Home can be special lands on this planet. Homelands where you ancestors lived and you feel them beside you. Or, land that your soul remembers. When I was driving by a beach along the coast of Washington state in the Olympic National Forest, I heard a voice say “home.” Emotions welled up within me.
When I returned to the beach earlier this year, I wept with joy… and sadness. This was my home. I felt the land speaking to me. It knew me and I knew its stories. I asked to borrow a big flat stone to comfort me when I needed to feel home.
I’ve been holding my homing stone a lot the last few days.
Gnomes and fairies encouraged me to make an essence with them that they called “Mystic Mushroom” (an etheric essence). When I was done, they told me it was for homesickness. When I took the essence, I felt my spirit propelled out into the cosmos and a sense of instant connection.
Mermaids call us home, too. My friend’s daughter keeps telling her she is a mermaid and wants to go home back to the sea. My friend has to watch her daughter carefully when they visit the beach!
We enter Cancer Sunday night at Summer Solstice 2021. A few days later, a full moon will bring more energies about Selfhood and how you show up in the world.
The sign of Cancer can bring up our deep emotions and is all about the comfort of loving home and kin…
Maybe these questions will help:
Where is your true home?
What feels like home?
Who makes you feel at home?
As you move through these times of great change and mystery, answering these questions may help you find more peace and connection and sense of belonging.
It is important as well to simply accept and be with the feeling of homesickness so it can transform within you and open up spaces to receive new experiences of what home means to you at this point in your life.
