I firmly believe that we are in the midst of a deep transformation and healing, a time to amplify our awareness, our love and our role in the uplifting of humankind.
This recent Note from the Universe echoes my belief perfectly:
Primitive societies live by the Rule of Might, and the strong prevail.
Advanced societies live by the Rule of Law, and the privileged prevail.
Enlightened societies live by the Rule of Love, and everyone is lifted higher.
Staying home during the Covid-19 pandemic not only shut us in physically, but also resulted in pent-up energy, emotions and plenty of frustration. Finding constructive and effective ways to expend and release this energy has been very challenging even for me – someone who has many tools and practices and easy access to Nature. I truly cannot imagine the magnification of the energy and frustration for those living in dense urban areas or those who have no tools of support to get them through tough days, even minutes.
Over the last 2-1/2 months, I’ve witnessed increased impatience, short fuses, hot tempers, and other attempts to unleash this pent-up energy on the few occasions I’ve gone out to buy groceries or fetch library materials. Put together an entire nation under extended stay home orders, centuries-old racism, and the need for raising our humanity bar, and you’ve got where we’ve arrived. But using hate and acts of violence is NEVER ok, nor is it ever a solution to any issue.
The healing, the transformation starts with us, each individual. Three powerful tools I utilize to reflect, shift and rebalance myself are music, writing and being in Nature.
What tools do you use to calm and shift your energy?
A song to inspire and lift you up: May We All Fly Like Eagles.
Indeed. Let’s do this. We’ve got the tools and the power.
