There are some words that carry very powerful meanings in their original language, but have no direct translation into other languages.
“Saudada” is one of those words.
According to Dictionary.com, Saudada (pronounced sou da da) is a noun, a word in the Portuguese language, with a meaning of “a deep emotional state or melancholic longing for a person or thing that is absent.”
Another meaning that has been associated with Saudada is the “presence of absence.”
The “presence of absence” typically represents an emotional state associated with sadness or grief.
The “presence of absence” includes a longing for something or someone that no longer physically exists in your life.
For example, you may have experienced a death of a loved one, a breakup of relationship, the loss of a job, the loss of a living situation, the loss or a change in a friendship, etc.
Since absence has a presence in your life, it also has an energetic footprint, a vibrational offering that is sent out to the Universe.
The “presence of absence” is a lower vibrational state that is “restrictive” and based on a vibration of “lack.”
The presence of absence, Saudada, is something you will likely experience many times during your lifetime.
How can you effectively deal with the presence of absence, when it occurs in your own life?
Effectively dealing with the presence of absence allows you to make positive impact in your own life and give you the freedom to co-create the life you truly desire.
