Our world has changed....this is for sure. Last weekend Timothy Shriver hosted “CALL TO UNITE,” a 24 hour online telethon with over 200 thought leaders, spiritual teachers, artists and healers. I caught the first couple hours and my big takeaway was hearing Oprah and Eckert Tolle talk about our present crisis as an opportunity to see the world differently and to unite. It’s a global reset.
For me, the last few months have been a time of deep reflection. It’s as if the Universe/God has sent us ALL to our rooms for a “time out.” We’re all being forced to stay home-like it or not. It reminds me of my rebellious teenage years and getting in trouble- being punished- grounded, not allowed outside or to see my friends. It was painful and grueling then, and it’s been grueling and challenging now to say the least. At times, it’s felt extremely difficult and very scarey. We all like to feel we have a certain level of control over our lives. And when we don’t, all HELL can break loose.
Has anyone else been feeling way out of their comfort zone lately? Yep, me too!
I love the book “Emotional Equations” by Chip Conley. In it, he presents our emotions with a brilliant equational concept that helps to explain how and why we feel the way we do.
I’m reminded of and love his emotional equation for Anxiety....
ANXIETY = UNCERTAINTY x POWERLESSNESS
Doesn’t that help explain why we’re all feeling a little (or maybe a lot) anxious? Especially if we’re taking in and watching too much news. Lots of uncertainty and a feeling of powerless. So of course we feel anxious.
So how can we navigate and get through this time?
I’m being Uber-present to how I feel and being extra kind to myself these days.
I’m choosing to not live on auto-pilot right now. Hopefully not anymore.
I’m giving myself a pass to not have to strive for perfection anymore.
I’m done with that.
I’m reaching out to stay connected and ask for HELP when I need it.
I’m choosing to listen more to the inside than listening to the news/media.
I’m giving myself quiet time that allows me to hear the whispers of my soul. To listen to my gut and to follow my heart.
I’m choosing GRACE & GRIT.
I’m asking myself...
How can I best use this time?
How can I uplevel my life?
How can I see the world differently?
I hope you’ll join me in uniting, coming together and seeing the world differently.
In the Chinese language, there are two symbols/characters that are brought together to create the word CRISIS....one is DANGER & the other is OPPORTUNITY.
That’s where we are my friends, and I hope you’ll join me in using this time of crisis as an opportunity to REBIRTH a NEW WORLD. A REBIRTH for YOURSELF & HUMANITY.
I’m sharing a short video with a very important message I received from GRANNY, a very wise ORCA. Maybe it was a coincidence how and where this came but I know without a doubt that coincidence is just God’s way of remaining anonymous, and I know I have to share this urgent and beautiful message with everyone.
Sending LOVE & LIGHT,
