#MusicMonday- Show Me The Meaning Of Being Lonely


Photo by: pixabay.com Edited by: Pamela Hester

There is a lot of us who had gone through a breakup at least once in our lives. It hurts so much and it leaves us questioning life and why things have to be that make you hurt so much.

I’ve picked the song, Show Me The Meaning Of Being Lonely for today’s #MusicMonday for that reason. And that is because it talks about how and when someone we love is no longer in our lives it makes us feel lonely. And there is nothing wrong with that. It is normal to feel that way, but not when you allow it to become part of your life where you’re shutting out the world and people who care about you. And doing so long-term.

It’s the heartache from a person who had physically left your life in a way that they would not be coming back- unless in the spirit form. I was 19 years old when my dad had passed away. I had experienced the worst heartbreak in my life because I know he is not going to come back. It is a sad discovery to know that a person you are so close to had been taken from your life so soon and without warning. Even though I had people around me, I still felt lonely and there are times where I would cry out to him in hopes that he could possibly hear me.

24 Comforting Loss of Mother Quotes - Quotes to Remember Moms Who Passed  Away

You see, the same weekend he passed away, I was to go live with him. Upon having my bags getting ready to be packed, I couldn’t get in touch with him to find out the exact day and time he wanted me to come over there. I didn’t know until later that he had died- alone on the living room floor all that time. Same year, my cousin (his niece) died in a car accident. Fast forward, more people I wished I could have given another time to chat with them had passed away.

This song by the Backstreet Boys have always been my all-time favorite song. I have such an emotional connection to this song and so does a lot others I’m sure. The video is so touching and such a tearjerker when watching it. There’s a message in the opening that said:

“This video is dedicated to Denniz POP, and to all those who have lost a loved one.”

Nick Carter, the band member said he had paid homage to Denniz POP in the video, and AJ had dedicated this song to a dear female friend who had passed away in a car accident.

Quotes When Someone Passes Away. QuotesGram

I won’t make this long and I’m not intentionally trying to make anyone feel sad, but sometimes (or oftentimes) we must think about the ones who had passed on and feel the emotions coursing through our body. It is okay to feel and say that you miss and love them. You are human. It is okay to take a few moments to think about the person and keep the memories of them alive.

It’s okay to say you are hurting and feel lonely, but don’t be alone. There are so many people who are going through what you are going through and you should know that it is okay to reach out and/or seek whatever therapy you may need.

LYRICS:

Intro:
Show me the meaning of being lonely

Verse 1:
So many words for the broken heart
It is hard to see in a crimson love
So hard to breathe
Walk with me and maybe
Nights of light so soon become
Wild and free I could feel the sun
Your every wish will be done
They tell me

Chorus:
Show me the meaning of being lonely
Is this the feeling I need to walk with
Tell me why I can’t be there where you are?
There is something missing in my heart

Verse 2:
Life goes on as it never ends
Eyes of stone observe the trends
They never say forever gaze, if only
Guilty roads to an endless love (endless love)
There is no control, are you with me now?
Your every wish will be done
They tell me

Chorus:
Show me the meaning of being lonely
Is this the feeling I need to walk with (tell me why)
Tell me why I can’t be there where you are?
There is something missing in my heart (heart!)

Bridge:
There is nowhere to run
I have no place to go
Surrender my heart, body, and soul
How can it be you are asking me
To feel the things you never show?
(Show-oh-oh-oh-oh, oh!)

Interlude:
You are missing in my heart
Tell me why can’t I be there where you are?

Chorus:
Show me the meaning of being lonely (being lonely)
Is this the feeling I need to walk with (tell me why)
Tell me why I can’t be there where you are? (where you are)
There is something missing in my heart
(You are missing from my heart)
Show me the meaning of being lonely (being lonely)
Is this the feeling I need to walk with
Tell me why I cannot be there where you are? (where you are)
There is something missing in my heart

A Poem Of The Wonder Of These Beings | Sacred Dreams #Poetry


Good morning /afternoon everyone! I apologize to those who wasn’t able to view the poem in the WordPress reader and/or on the reader website yesterday.

It seems like it was only able to be viewed when on the WordPress site or clicking on the link to view in webpage. My apologies. So, I decided to just repost it but without embedding the Facebook link I got it from, and delete the one from yesterday.


Below is a poem from Sacred Dreams’ Facebook written by Cyrielle Soares. While pondering what I was going to do about my Facebook personal and writer’s pages, I came across this poem someone shared in a Twin Flames’ group I’m in and checked out the original post for the poem. It’s beautiful and speaks to the heart and soul. It really makes you think about certain types of beings that have come into your life over the years. 

* * * * * *

From Sacred Dreams

There are beings that satisfy you.
No not from their presence,
But of their simple existence.
There are people who sleep with you, never touch your sheets.
Just by their thoughts that accompany you.
There are some wonderful men.
Enchanting women.
Absolute beings.
There are people whose ease of penetrating you is magic.
They type your dreams like we would compose a piano melody.
They write words straight out of another world.
As if the world of the living does not have access to these magnificent words.
They perfume your tears of sense and forgiveness.
They inhabit your floors, your attics, your cellars and your attics, and illuminate them in the light of their hearts.
They travel under your skin making chills and bursts.
They rock your cravings like mornings that wake up slowly.
There are people who thrive with life.
Who draw words about minds.
Who soothe all evil.
Of those who heal, feel and pet.
Of those who upset our fragile balance.
Because they are free.
Because they love without waiting.
Because they are rare.
Magic or terrifying.
Like labyrinths where we get lost irreparably.
Where we are not looking for the exit.
Where certainties always fly in blast.
Where the abyss fixes our damaged sides.
These beings devoid of expectations that offer their absence like a tomb that we bloom from our imaginary sorrows.
They are beautiful.
Alive and dead.
They are forever.
In the form of friends, love or soulmate.
Call them what you want.
They line our lives with balms and honey.
I know that.
I’ve lived it.~

Relaxation Is Blissful #MondayBlogs

I’m going to let you all know something. Relaxation has never felt so blissful.

Soft music. Candlelight. Your favorite body fragrance scrub, etc. The works, you know.

Take the time out of your busy day- or night and get to know your body and yourself all over again. Relax your mind, body, and your spirit, and as often as you can.

Meditate. Pray. Shut the world out. Read. Write. Do whatever it is that helps you to relax. Take as much time as you need.

Go into that place where you find comfort and tranquility. Your higher self will thank you.

Life is short, so no matter what’s going on, relax, relax, relax!

Also, I love going to Youtube to listen to meditation music and the likes. One of my favorite channels is: Yellow Brick Cinema- Relaxing Music. I would like to share one of their many videos with you. I hope you enjoy it and helps you to find relaxation.

Love,

Pamela


Below is an article from The Mayo Clinic I’ve snipped and wanted to share with you all. (Click the link below to read the article in its entirety.)

Learn how to use relaxation techniques to reduce stress and bring more calm into your life.

Types of relaxation techniques include:

  • Autogenic relaxation. Autogenic means something that comes from within you. In this relaxation technique, you use both visual imagery and body awareness to reduce stress.You repeat words or suggestions in your mind that may help you relax and reduce muscle tension. For example, you may imagine a peaceful setting and then focus on controlled, relaxing breathing, slowing your heart rate, or feeling different physical sensations, such as relaxing each arm or leg one by one.
  • Progressive muscle relaxation. In this relaxation technique, you focus on slowly tensing and then relaxing each muscle group.This can help you focus on the difference between muscle tension and relaxation. You can become more aware of physical sensations.

    In one method of progressive muscle relaxation, you start by tensing and relaxing the muscles in your toes and progressively working your way up to your neck and head. You can also start with your head and neck and work down to your toes. Tense your muscles for about five seconds and then relax for 30 seconds, and repeat.

  • Visualization. In this relaxation technique, you may form mental images to take a visual journey to a peaceful, calming place or situation.To relax using visualization, try to incorporate as many senses as you can, including smell, sight, sound and touch. If you imagine relaxing at the ocean, for instance, think about the smell of salt water, the sound of crashing waves and the warmth of the sun on your body.

    You may want to close your eyes, sit in a quiet spot, loosen any tight clothing, and concentrate on your breathing. Aim to focus on the present and think positive thoughts.

Other relaxation techniques may include:

  • Deep breathing
  • Massage
  • Meditation
  • Tai chi
  • Yoga
  • Biofeedback
  • Music and art therapy
  • Aromatherapy
  • Hydrotherapy

A Supernatural Dream #fiction #writing

Repost.

Her heart quickened with each step she took as the men in black followed her in quick strides. She glanced back briefly and gasped when she saw they were only ten feet behind.

In the dark of the night with little light from the moon had cast shadows in front of her. Her feet pounded against the dirt trails that were used for hiking. She got to keep going. She pushed herself to make it to the end of the trail. She refused to be taken back to a place she doesn’t belong like the others. She wanted to go to the place she called home where she felt safe and secure.

The men were coming closer; only four feet of distance separated them from her. She ran faster with all her might. She has been running for what seems like an hour. She got to make it to the white truck where others like her were waiting.
She was getting close though. The light from one of the men’s flashlights reflected on the truck that was not so far away now.

“We won’t let you leave!” One of the men in black exclaimed. His voice was taunting like he knew for sure she won’t leave the compound.

She shook her head violently, determined to make it even if she had to fly her way to the others. But, she won’t give the men the satisfaction of seeing her use her powers. It would give them the ammunition to use it against her.

Just when she neared the white truck, she screamed when she felt a bony hand reach out to grab hold of her shoulder. The sharp fingernails of the hand were digging deep into her flesh.

“This is it. I had made it,” she murmured. She lay in the grass with tears cascading down her cheeks and down her neck.

“What didn’t you made yet, sweetie?” A calm and soothing voice asked her.

The young girl’s eyes jerked open, and she carefully scanned her surroundings. She wasn’t in the woods running away from the men in black anymore. They wanted to snatch her just to turn her in to run extensive tests on her.

She was safe in an all-white room laying on a full-size bed. Also in the room was a night table by the bed with a book about healing, a small window with a radiator heater underneath it, and a box-shaped television in a corner on top of a wooden table.

She threw her head back against the pillows. It had all been a dream. All a dream. She was in a safe haven for people with supernatural powers just like hers. She laughs softly, but it was cut short.

The woman who stared down at her with kind eyes said, “It was such a shame those men in black wanted to take you back. They would have made life hell for you, dear. Luckily, you were able to use one of your powers to save yourself.”

“What do you mean?” The young girl asked with a puzzled look. She sat up abruptly.

“If you didn’t use telepathy, the man and the woman wouldn’t have been able to drive up in the white truck to get you. Not only that, a supernatural ability you have that I can’t seem to fathom right one, was another power you had used.” She sighed.

“Some of us aren’t so lucky. Some get captured. Well done, Phonecia! You are now safe.”

Phonecia threw her head back. So it really wasn’t a dream then, she thought.
