We are currently hearing about so many acts and intentions of extreme violence. This is on top of the mountain of abuse being uncovered that has been perpetuated for decades by those whose job it was to protect innocents. These issues are all separate, yet connected by a common thread which at the end of the day is a violation of everyone's right to live freely, in peace, not doing harm to others, with sovereignty over their own body and life.
Current events can make
you feel like the darkness is winning, and that the world is being
over-run by madness. Fear and a general feeling of yuckiness is in the
air, so it's a good time to give yourself an energy shower. I am not
saying to dig our heads in the sand about what is happening. Quite the
opposite, clearing ourselves of fear helps us to see, feel and act with
greater clarity and effectiveness, while fear makes one feel helpless,
hopeless, and can have a debilitating 'I just want to crawl into foetal
position' affect on us (unless you are in immediate danger in which case
it triggers the important fight or flight survival instinct).
fear: just feel yourself breathing it out, showering it off you,
smudging it away, and as you do so ask to see and feel clearly so that
you may act powerfully in a good way. 'Action' comes in many forms. For
some it is via silent prayer, for others it is via getting information
out, providing inspiration via your creativity, donating, volunteering,
providing on the ground aid, spreading your happiness around, there are
as many forms of action as there are beings on this planet.
