Health and wellness
By now, the world has heard of the shooting in Orlando, and I'm still trying to wrap my head around this horrific tragedy. I held my kids a little tighter tonight, because its so difficult to process, and they needed to feel safe in a world that seems so unsafe lately. A couple of them cried, and the others were quiet, I'm guessing trying to comprehend how such a horrible act of cruelty and violence could occur, and shocked that it is happening too often it seems. Even once is too often, and yet, unfortunately we're hearing about it more and more.
The energy of the world has become unstable and rigid. Coming to grips with the idea that this may be becoming the norm, doesn't settle well with me. Its rattles the soul and creates a feeling of illness emanating throughout our spirit. We hear of something like this, families being ripped to shreds by a disgusting human that decides to take lives from this Earth, and we're rocked to our core. How can we not be? It makes us think. Think about what if. What if it were me that was there that night? What if it was someone I knew and loved? What if something happens to me like that? What if... How empty the families feel, how they will never see or hear from their loved ones again. How scared the survivors must have been. How they will never again be the same, because of one mans' decision.
We can never make this go away, nor can we erase all the other tragedies that we've gone through and heard about. So what can we do? How can we wake up tomorrow and not feel sickened by what happened? You can't. Because you're human and a wonderful feeling human at that. But what you can do is this. Feel. Grieve. Love and say a beautiful healing prayer for them. Help the families get through this the best they can. Feel the pain in your heart, instead of pushing it down, and then send it off with love and healing and guidance. And then warm your heart with tenderness. Heal yourself, and move forward. We need more love in this world, and by you doing this, and telling your friends to do this, you create the positive energy that this world so desperately needs. Feel the light in your soul as it radiates outward, touching lives and bringing people together. Help to heal them with your warmth and your illumination.
One of my favorite positive energy healers is Laurel-Bleadon Maffei, and her work is not only amazing but crucial to the healing of this planet. She is so in touch with the energy of this world, and works everyday using her never ending positive light to create a foundation with which to turn when feeling lost. She takes you back to a positive place and reminds us that we are the light of this world and we need to join together to make this planet a better place with which to live.
So blessings to you this week and hold your loved ones just a little tighter.
