If the answer is ‘yes’, you are definitely not alone. When you are Overwhelmed, you are essentially receiving so much Form or Consciousness Flow in your ‘Instream’, that it temporarily blows out your Chakras. This is not a big deal, but it can be uncomfortable. It can even become stuck in your Chakra system or other Form Systems (meridian, physical, auric for example) that it requires attention and work to clear it all out. So you will be in a condition of either Slow Moving and Uncomfortable or Stuck and Developing A Congested Traffic Jam. Either way, you’re dealing with something that requires attention and management.
Isolating, taking the time and space required to Hold your presence with the overwhelm makes perfect sense. Whether you are working in Concepts (information you’ve received), Form (energy) or both, it is important to take the time to separate the information into pieces, and digest or clear as you require.
Taking time to yourself, gives you time to breathe. It puts the brakes on other/more information pouring in. It stops everything and gives you time to be still – so that you can get your bearings and listen, look and feel what is actually going on for you.
It is here that you can apply your methods and tools for managing Overwhelm conditions. Do you need to do some Form clearing and processing? Feeling where those heavy lumps inside are and releasing them, helping them to move out of your Form – is such a relief.
Have you been slammed? Have you been emotionally or mentally or otherwise ‘hit’ with some painful information? This is the time to write it down, sort it through and decide what to take on, what to let go of and even what to return to the ‘giver’. Sometimes when you are given some unwelcome or overwhelming information, you are also told how to handle it. This is where (if you haven’t already done so), you can figure out what is useful and what is unhelpful information and advice. In being alone, you get to shut down the external voices and listen to your own Inner Mind.
Whatever the case, Self Isolation is an extremely useful tool to use when overwhelmed. Make sure that you have some definitions around Overwhelm and Self Isolation for yourself. This way you become clearer in what you need to do to look after yourself and manage conditions you are dealing with. Self Isolation is a very practical Self Management Tool and it shows your strength that you use it.
