Whether you consider yourself a social butterfly or would rather blend into the background at social gatherings, your ability to connect to your community, your people, is key in bringing your authentic essence to life. A community that aligns with who you are, and what matters most, is one of the quickest ways to craft a life you absolutely adore!
Your social life, which includes the groups and associations to which you belong, is another way life expresses through Doorway 11. How sociable you are depends largely on who you are and how you are wired. Some people thrive on being out in big groups of people, and find them energizing. Others feel overwhelmed at the mere thought of an outing like that.
An active social life can connect you with wonderful acquaintances that you see on occasion and have interests in common. Typically, people you know from large groups do not become close friends, though they may. If you tend to be more extroverted, social groups, networking events, and associations dedicated to a cause you care about can be energizing and uplifting.
Even if you are more introverted, if the cause or focus of the group is of great interest, you may find benefit in joining.
Social media has taken the place of having a social life in the real world, for many people. Even if you still belong to in-person groups, the internet offers many more possibilities for finding groups that perfectly match your interests. The beauty of it is that you never have to leave home. That can also be the drawback of social media. An in-person experience offers benefits that you can’t get online. Being physically face-to-face with other humans helps us remember our humanity and our connection to others in a way we just don’t get through a computer screen.
Goddess of Now
The Goddess of Now says your social life can be a real blessing. Those with whom you socialize, particularly those you consider an acquaintance, rather than a friend, connect you with parts of yourself that you don’t otherwise access. If life were a tapestry, their threads would reside a few rows over from yours. Though your threads are not directly touching, you add color and texture to the overall picture you share.
The Goddess says you never know when the connections you make with someone you only know socially will open doors to new possibilities for you or those you love. Human life consists of concentric circles of influence. Even those a few circles out from you make a difference in the quality of your life. If you have neglected this part of your life, there is much to be gained by making new social connections, in any way that feels good to you.
