For me, feeling connected is about believing in something. it's about a deep knowing and a true sense of wonder and amazement about how the world works.
Sometimes my sense of connection comes from my amazement of the moon light, the stars and the solar system, and the fact that we are humans occupying a small planet in a universe that has no end. or when I feel sunshine and see the natural beauty that surrounds us and the perfect order of Mother Nature.
But mostly, feeling connected is about believing and staying true to your inner knowing. Believing in something is what makes it true and real. My favourite Wayne Dyer quote (also his book title) is " You'll see it when you believe it" ... take a few moments to let that sink in.
Feeling connected is very unique for every individual and may require some deep reflection and contemplation. Maybe even some inner exploration. Connection is something you have to find and define on your own terms, along your own path. it's part of the reason why we are here and have an innate feeling of longing for connection. My tip to you: do not look for this connection outside of yourself ... it can only come from within, from a deep place of knowing and believing.

Option two: if you are comfortable, share your thoughts about your sense of connection with a close friend or partner (or me!) to see what it sparks in you while you are speaking about it. Remember, if you feel the need to defend it, you have more work to do! (back to reflection in step one)
