Why Are You Here And Why Should You Stay?

Updated: Feb 11

Excerpt from:

The Empaths Guidebook to Consciousness and Awareness

Have you ever questioned, why you are here and why should you stay? Have you ever felt like you just don't belong in this reality? Have you looked around at what other people are creating and questioned why it seems so easy for them yet so hard for you? Why are you here? And why in the world are you staying?


This universe is one of many.


I like to think of all the universes together as one huge pie. This universe would be a very small piece of this huge pie.


(If you can read along in the story and try to perceive what is light and true for you. If the concept of asking questions and perceiving energy is new to you, you may have difficulty with the next few sections. Just read along and see if the conclusion feels true for you.)


I like to play in the concept that all the universes together are one huge pie. Every universe out there including this universe. This universe is one very small piece of this very large pie.

If you can imagine this pie, what section of the pie would you as a being be from?


Allow yourself to perceive this information in your body, light is always true for you, heavy is always false.


Read aloud,

“Truth, am I from the whole pie? A piece of the pie? Or this section of the universe piece of pie?”


Pause and ask that again.

“Truth, am I from the whole pie? A piece of the pie? Or this section of the universe piece of pie?”


Take a deep breath and allow yourself to perceive what feels light in your body. You may not be able to perceive yet what is light and true for you and that’s okay. Just take a deep breath and keep going.


If you are reading this, you are more than likely from the whole pie.


You are from all the universes.


Feel that for a moment.


You are from more than just this universe.


Does that make you feel lighter or heavier? Take a deep breath and really allow that thought to sink into your body.


You are from all universes.


Now let’s look at this whole pie, all the universes.


How many universes would you be looking at?

Perceive this in your body and ask,

“How many universes am I from? More than 5,000 universes? Or less than 5,000 universes?”


Take a deep breath and ask again.

“How many universes am I from? More than 5,000 universes? Or less than 5,000?”


Take a deep breath and really feel that.

Could it be possible you are a being from more than 5,000 universes?


Can you imagine?

Feel that for a moment. Can you perceive how light and true that is for you?


You are being from more than 5,000 universes. How amazing does that feel? Pretty expansive right?


Continuing on that thought, if you can sit for a moment with the idea that there may be different types of beings on this planet, it might explain why you feel so different.


There are infinite beings like you and I, from the whole pie.

We have come to master this reality. To be the space of something different. To receive from everyone and everything. Embrace this space of beingness. Embrace the bigness of who you are. Feel the way your reality changes. You choose to come here. You decided to play in these concepts. Now it’s time to awaken to the powerful creator that you be!
