So many people are feeling out-of-sorts, stressed, angry, sad, and even slightly nutty. We should all give ourselves a break considering the wild ride of the first half of 2020. Messages of doom and gloom, inciting fear, added to conflicting information, comes rocketing at us from every direction. You can’t help but feel a little bit insane, and begin to doubt yourself.
Stop that crazy train and take a good long look at your life. Up until January, what has your life looked like? Have you been in a career? Are you able to support yourself? Do you have a family? Do you have a home and are you able to provide food and other necessities for yourself and your family? If you answer yes to one or more of those questions, then you’ve have likely led a reasonably normal life. Maybe your life is still like that, in spite of the outside world. Seems pretty sane to me.
Then everything changed. And you have talked about it with everyone. Maybe differing opinions have entered your conversations. Maybe discussions have been heated. Maybe even you are not on speaking terms with some people. Maybe words like “I don’t understand you” or “radical” have been tossed around. And doubt is now roiling around in your gut like bad pastrami.
It’s not them, and it’s not YOU.
The planet has been building up a pile of sh*t for eons. Every angry word, every incident of disrespect, every act of putting someone down, every moment of shame, blame and guilt, everything that is harmful to another, has been stuffed down and suppressed for our entire existence. And like bad pastrami, it’s gotta come out. (I know, disgusting analogy, but you can agree it’s effective.) The time has come to . . . deal with our mess.
Just as you would if you had an upset tummy, you spend some time alone. You rest, turn off the television or other noise, drink some tea, and maybe soothe yourself by soaking in a warm bathtub. In other words, nurture yourself.
All that outside noise, is just that: NOISE. Tune it out and stay out of the fray. Don’t get sucked into a nonsensical battle with your nearest and dearest, because all of this is just temporary.
The world is going through a change, and the present insanity is a necessary part of the process. How can something become better if you don’t clean out the bad plumbing? It was destined to happen, and it will all be for the better, so the less you resist the easier it goes.
If you are the warrior type, then find a positive place where you take action. If it is angry and fearful, that is not where you want to put your energy. If you are the behind-the-scenes worker type, then put your energy into helping others. If you are just trying to manage your life, then fill yourself up with the energy of Love.
What is the energy of Love? Honoring yourself and your needs. You are lovable and valuable. You treat yourself as you want to be treated. Loving yourself is not selfish – it is NECESSARY. When you fill yourself with Love, you light up like a beacon. People are drawn to your radiance, and it shines outward to everyone you come in contact with, thereby changing their frequency to that of Love. What do you think would happen if everyone did this? Think about that for a moment. Pretty spectacular, huh? The insanity, kinda like, disappears doesn’t it?
How ’bout we start right now and agree to fill ourselves with Love every single day. I’m in.
