Blog post Loneliness versus Being Alone

When you love your own company
you never will feel alone

Do you hate being on your own?

Loneliness is on the increase, partly due to the pandemic and also fueled by the breakdown in communities. Feeling lonely causes mental health issues and weakens immune systems causing ill health.


As an introvert/empath I enjoy time alone. In fact, I need it and crave it. I need to have space to decompress, think, and release negative energy. Yet, on the flip side, I don’t like long periods of isolation.

When we lived in the Swiss Alps, in a perfect ‘chocolat box’ chalet, I loved the summer and was quite happy taking walks and exploring the mountains, alpine meadows and sitting by the river that flowed through the woods. It was my ‘paradise’ in summer. However, as the long winter progressed, I often ended up feeling trapped. The snow and ice created barriers meaning that I wouldn’t go out.

My husband travelled to work in Zurich for 2-3 days per week, leaving at 5am and returning at 9pm. I spent those long days without speaking to anyone. I detested the loneliness and struggled being so much on my own. Of course, living in such a small close-knit village who spoke a dialect I couldn’t understand, made it so much harder as we were seen as ‘outsiders’, and would always be so.

Over the course of six years living there, I began to loathe it and regretted our decision to move from Zurich, where I had friends, a good job and great friends.

Loneliness is like a disease which consumes you from the inside.

Soul Magic with Janet Blog Post Loneliness versus Being Alone

When we returned to the UK, I thought it would be easy to settle in. I would no longer feel lonely – no language barrier and lots of groups to join and activities to try.

However, we arrived back just as the COVID pandemic struck, which forced us into lockdowns and isolation. It was challenging, and I struggled. Everything I had been seeking was taken away. Boy, it felt like a personal kick in the teeth from the Universe. I was angry, frustrated and bitter, which spiralled me down into depression. I know that many other people struggled too with the feeling of being cut off from loved-ones, while others enjoyed having time at home doing things they normally never had time for.

Only working through my own issues and getting the right support, I managed to survive the darkness. I found away back to myself and was reminded how important it is to LOVE YOURSELF. Once, I found my way back to SELF-LOVE, it was a game changer.

Now, I am happy to enjoy quality time on my own, finding ways to do things I enjoy alone and relish the time I spend with friends and family on my own terms.

When you learn to fall in love with yourself,
you become your own best friend
– one you enjoy spending time with.

– Angel Blessing

Do you believe in Angels?

When I think back across my life, I know that someone has been looking out for me.

On one occasion, when my car was in a freak accident – it was hit by a cable, which caused me to miss the turn into the corner and the car I was driving rolled off the side of a Swiss mountain. I can honestly say that I thought that was it – game over.

Surprisingly, I was calm and I remember thinking if I’m to die now, I have had an incredible lifeas the car rolled and slid down the steep bank. There were many things that day which miraculously fell into place. Firstly, where the accident happened had a good number of trees down the bank which stopped the car plunging down into a valley, and secondly, there were people working across the road from where it happened and they saw the car go over – normally they would have not been around at that time. As I was hanging upside down in the driver’s seat, they called for help and rushed to my rescue. Apart from a few bruises, a stiff neck and being embarrassed – I walked away, whereas the car was a write-off.

I will admit I was anxious about driving again especially on that twisty mountain road. I had to do a lot of work to push through my fear. And now, every time I drive, I call upon my ‘angel team’ to keep me safe.

I wholeheartedly believe if I had not done so, I would have died that day.

Angels support us, we need only ask for their help and
provided it is for our highest good, they will do so.

Growing up in a religious household, I was very aware of angels from a bibical perspective. However, they never felt real but merely images in children’s bible story books.

As I progress on my spiritual journey, I have become a believer and know there are forces around us supporting us throughout our life experiences. When I have been in frightening situation (both real and imaginery – blame my active imagination!), I always call upon my ‘angel team’ to be with me and keep me safe.

They guide us as we seek to become better versions of ourselves, to heal trauma, change old patterns and step into love. By inviting ANGELS into our lives and putting our trust in them – having FAITH – life will start to shift in many positive ways. And when challenges arises (as they will do), we are better equipped to deal with them – and not feel so alone.

You will never feel alone when you invite your Angel Team to support you.

If you wish to know about ANGELS, please listen/watch Episode 4 of the ‘Heart and Soul’ show with myself and the incredible Caroline Palmy when we chat about our own personal experiences of working with angels.
