Hard week? Things are unsettling, scary, heartbreaking and chaotic. Even if you are not directly affected by the pain and suffering in our world right now, you ARE affected. We all are because we are all connected. This feeling of connection is magnified significantly for those of us who feel energy and are empaths. Sometimes I wish I could be like the people that just seem oblivious to it all. But, I'm not and I don't think you are either.
When things are heavy, everyday tasks feel harder and more overwhelming. You may feel like you should have your shit together, but everything feels off and hard. We try to keep things in perspective, reminding ourselves that our hard right now is most likely not as hard as others. We are not literally running for our lives and being separated from our family wondering if and when we'll see them again. I could go on here, but I'm not going to. You have seen and read about the straight out torture and I'm not going to reiterate it, because that's not my point.
My point is to come from love. BE love. This is hard and it takes practice. I have consciously had to shift my thoughts and images from fear, loss and terror to love and trust this week. There is a part of me that has always believed that if I don't feel and take on the pain for others, I'm being naive and selfish. But very recently, I have learned that this isn't the truth. When I immerse myself in suffering, I attract suffering and I'm not helping to shift the energy of the collective. When I immerse myself in love, I can GIVE love. I can be informed AND not suffer. I can pray and send healing energy WITHOUT playing out how I would get my kids to safety and say goodbye to my husband if I was living in Ukraine right now. I am not helping anyone by sitting here like an anxious mess. And to help others, I must help myself. It starts with me loving me, and me loving my family. When my family feels my love and connection, and not my anxiety and fear, they can give out love to others.
And the love spreads.
Whether you're into the energy healing stuff or not, it actually doesn't matter. You can shift your energy to a place of love just by focusing on it. You can send love to people across the world just by setting your intention. Taking care of yourself makes it easier to take care of others.
Look for the helpers, look for the love and raise your vibration. Continue to see peace and love winning. Continue to trust. Continue to be love.
It's ok to feel terrified and hopeless. Once you feel it, breathe, let it go, open up your heart and do something to help the energy of our hurting Earth and the beautiful people living on it. You have to- they need us.
