The super-talented Roxanne Emery covers “This is What It Feels Like” by Armin Van Buuren feat. Trevor Guthrie. This song’s lyrics tell a story of a serious break-up, in which the storyteller is describing how she feels. They include receiving no more phone calls, only photos and memories to hold onto, feeling dead inside or drowning in water, feelings of desperation, feeling lost, and feeling incapable of continuing to live without the loved one.
I remember having similar feelings from a serious break-up during my young adulthood. I had a very uncomfortable feeling around my chest, and an empty sickening feeling in my tummy. I remember after a week of the agony of it all, my ‘heart space’ naturally receded like a turtle head in its shell, to recover and heal from it. It took around 6 months to recover from my break-up. After that time, I had to consciously begin to trust and love myself and others again, opening myself up to the world, through the heart chakra and projecting out the heart space. It was not an easy task, I might add. Luckily for me, shortly after, I met the mother of my children, when I was least expecting it, just simply being an authentic person.
Many people I met in my life were never able to trust again after that ‘one’ serious break-up. In my humble opinion, I think that is a big mistake. Without bi-directional love, there is nothing. I encourage people to run the risk to love again, whether it be, for ourselves, pets, potential partners, colleagues, neighbors, family members , friends, or an idea that you strongly believe in. Who knows, it might lead to something unexpected. Just trust, take action, and see where it takes you, I usually tell the folks around me.
Allow Roxanne’s voice to penetrate deep in your heart, and maybe you can see what it feels like. Enjoy:-)
