With all of the recent events happening in the world between natural disasters, attacks and the loss of many lives, I’ve been asked how one should feel about these events. I’ve held back on responding because honestly, I didn’t know how I felt. I hadn’t even begun to process my feelings yet. But I do know that if we’re living in fear, it does nothing for the world.
“When you are in fear, you are not in power.”
So how do you take that power back? First, process your feelings – don’t pass them over. Heal yourself so you can spread love and light to others. Talk to someone, whether it’s a counselor, going to a trauma center or a dear friend who you know holds that space for you. Just be sure to give yourself the grace and space to process.
Once you’ve healed, be sure to keep that love and light in your life by surrounding yourself with those who allow you to do the same.
“Our environments reflect the results we get back in our minds.”
We know that if we stay connected to these groups or tribes we can nip fear and powerlessness in the bud and step into our power.
“When we put loving energy out it will be reflected to us in a bigger way in our lives.”
