Esoteric

Picture: Yahoo

This weeks word addresses something far too many feel in my opinion. It’s a word close to my heart that can bring with it, loneliness, anxiety and a sad and empty feeling. Not only have I experienced it myself but also witnessed it many a times.

The word I am talking about is “Esoteric.” A serious one today and this adjective describes the…

  1. intended for or likely to be understood by only a selected few who have special knowledge or interest.
  2. Private, secret, confidential, belonging to the selected few.

Perhaps this rings a bell and you have felt like this a time or two. Do you recall the emotions attached to feeling this way? Knowing that you could only share your heart with a few, selected ones. With individual interests that differ greatly from person to person, those few are your tribe and should be cherished?

If this word stirred something in you, I hope that it is positive. While those few are indeed rare, it is with certainty that they do exist and are your soul family. There is nothing wrong with you or your way of thinking, feeling and expressing yourself. Keep doing so and be yourself, it’s the only way. And be patient and understanding when you come across someone with different beliefs. They’re searching as well so let’s have a great rest of the week.

🙏🏼💙

Who am I, and why I write. I’m a dreamer, but I’m not the only one. I am the one, holding on to the silver lining when the skies are gray. I’m a believer that nothing is coincidence, but that everything has purpose. I’ve made my mistakes, don’t we all, but I see them as growing pains and they are a part of who I am today. I have lost myself in order to find myself, and I still do from time to time, but in a good way. I’m a big child who laughs until my belly hurts when life wants to be serious. Career wise: I’ve been there, done that, and I took “The jump” off the hamster wheel in an effort to change my future. I didn’t land all that soft, but I can say that I’m still proud to have found the courage to do it. Coming full circle, I had it all, and yet I was lonely and had nothing. Today I choose to be a collector of moments and I chase memories, instead of the material stuff. Less is more, and the motto is quality over quantity. You’d be amazed at how freeing it can be. I see myself as a free spirit that believes in an unconventional lifestyle. Somehow I go against the grain most of the times, not to rebel, but because it feels right to stay true to my unique and authentic self. It takes courage, and you often stand alone, but if you dare, you soon realize that it is the only way if you don’t want to lose who you are. Just like most, my past wasn’t easy and I come from a life that didn’t always give me the opportunity to be heard. Few related and even fewer cared to take the time. But that’s the past and it’s history, the future hasn’t happened and the “NOW” is truly all we ever have. In the end we all have a story to tell, and we all seek to be understood. We all yearn to be heard and accepted and still life is hard and our path is full of stumbling blocks. If we can see the lessons in adversity we may realize that the toughest moments are often our greatest teachers. There is a reason for the saying that the stars can’t shine without darkness, and it might be darkness that will show you the light.
It took a series of (un)fortunate events, to learn to glow through the pain, to learn how to dance in the rain. I believe in Magic and wonder, and the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. As an empath this old soul often feels a little too much, but I wouldn’t have it any other way.
Today, I am here to tell my story because I believe that it can help others. It is my hope to bring inspiration and strengths to you, while showing you that it can be done. I know you are out there, and I know you are suffering in silence. I am here to tell you that you are not alone, and your voice is being heard loud and clear. Hang on and be strong, transformation is yours. 
In light and love....Rhapsody Bohème 💙🦋

  1. Such an interesting topic, Rhapsody.
    Many years ago, I studied in the esoteric area and it is a very lonely area, at least until you begin to find yourself and your own ideas of living, then it is possible to turn around and view life in a different way than usual.
    Much love to you, dear friend ❤
