Staying Empowered in a Pandemic of Disempowerment
May 6th, 2020 by admin
Hello, Beautiful One!
How have you been? Are you staying grounded or finding yourself spun up in fear?
It’s been an easy going week or two for me, even though I am fully aware of all that is happening. I am just taking it all in, and I am in awe at all of the changes that have taken place in our world over the last several weeks. I am in awe of everything that is coming to light. I am in awe of how varied the perspectives are.
I am in awe of how much we actually don’t know about how things will unfold.
How much we don’t know, doesn’t bring up fear in me. It reassures me, actually.
There is so much information coming in at all times about what’s going on, but nothing that lets me know how the future will actually unfold.
None of us can know this, no matter how much we think we know, so as I have shared previously, it’s best to hold it all very loosely, without attachment (because it’s all working out for our highest good, anyway. I can’t prove this, but I feel it in my bones. Can you?)
What I do know is that, as infuriating and outrageous as some of the narratives and possible agendas can feel, and regardless of the level of frustration that can sometimes arise in response to the rampant ignore-ance about how the body-mind and the immune system actually work…
I choose to live in the peace of the present moment, where there is infinite potential for things to shift at any moment, in amazing and unexpected ways.
I choose to trust in my connection to Spirit/ All Life.
I choose to trust that evil can only destroy itself. It cannot prevail. I trust that evil is not an entity, but simply a temporary experience that cannot last–a limited energy.
I choose to trust in my eternal, limitless nature, as a “mini-me” of Spirit.
I choose to trust the Body-Mind and to trust Life.
I choose to take guided action–not from a place of fear and disempowerment, but Love, personal power and sovereignty.
I choose to live as the sovereign creator of my own experience that I Am, regardless of what is happening, in any given moment or circumstance, and regardless of what anyone else is saying, no matter how “important” or “educated” they appear to be.
I choose to let go of the idea that I need an authority figure to tell me how to live, think, and take care of myself, in order to be ok, because I know that there is a much Greater Intelligence informing and powering my life and unfoldment.
As the sovereign empowered creator of my own experience, I choose to eat & live well and to take care of my gut microbiome and immune system.
I choose to move, dance, create, and to enjoy Life’s simple pleasures.
I choose connection & unity, rather than separation and division.
I choose to expose myself to/ connect with nature, Mother Earth, and to animals as often as possible, in order to support my physical and spiritual immune system.
I choose to fearlessly and sensibly reintegrate into human connection again, as life here in the U.S. begins to open back up, while trusting that exposure, combined with living an anti-inflammatory, microbiome-friendly lifestyle, and from an empowered state of being, is the best way to strengthen my immune system and build resilience.
I choose to be a grounding rod for my family, my clients, and my community, by simply trusting Life’s perfect unfolding and radically accepting and loving What-Is.
I choose to remain non-reactive to any thought or story that appears or is presented to my awareness, so that I may remain open to Intuitive Guidance; and so that I may take actions & do my part to birth new realities from a place of power, not fear.
This is what it’s going to take to create the shift that is needed in the collective, and it will only happen THROUGH us. Many are already on board, and more people are continually waking up to this way of being and effecting change.
It IS happening, NOW.
This is Spiritual Activism.
Are you in? If you are, I’d love to know.
Remember that all that is truly needed, is for us each to radiate our power (Love) and our deep trust in the perfection of Life. This is enough to create an impact in the collective, because we are all connected. There’s nothing else you need to do, so if you’re not up to speak out, it’s ok. Just do your inner work to clear away/integrate beliefs that are not a vibrational match with Love.
A Power Practice
If you’d like to experience more of your authentic power, I invite you to try a practice, or consciousness technology, if you will, that I recently learned from one of my shamanic teachers.
This practice has been very supportive for me in exercising the power to choose my level of consciousness through harnessing the power of my word and intent. This practice is a big part of how I’ve been keeping myself grounded, loving, and sovereign:
1.) When you notice that you are caught up in fear or any emotion that doesn’t feel good, first take some slow, deep breaths, and notice, observe, and name the emotion. Notice any bodily sensations that arise with the emotion and just be with it for a moment, without making any meaning or going into any story around it. Just notice your experience with awe and curiosity.
2.) Then say, “I close the (energetic and emotional) field of (insert whatever emotion or belief you are experiencing).” This might be Shame, Fear, Anxiety, Blame, Self-Doubt, Worry, Unworthiness, Guilt, Susceptibility, etc. Feel the emotion/belief leave your body.
Example: “I close the field of fear.”
Another way to do this is to simply say, “correct neutral now.” This brings you back to the present moment–back to a place of neutrality and non-attachment to whatever thoughts you have been identifying with and fixated upon, that were creating a lower vibrational emotional experience.
3.) From here, you may choose to open the field of whatever emotion-belief you’d like to be experiencing. I love to open the fields of Joy, Gratitude, Abundance, Power, Wisdom, Creativity, Divine Knowing, Ease, Grace, Unconditional Love, Forgiveness, Surrender, Allowing, etc. It depends on what I am doing and what’s happening.
For example, you might say, “I open up the field of Power.” Say this in a commanding way. Breathe deeply. Feel your authentic power rise up within you. Allowing yourself to fully feel the energy and emotion of the field you are opening is key.
Again, as the creator of your own experience, you get to choose your vibration and emotional state.
This practice supports you in focusing your attention on this truth.
If you are not using your power to choose and to create your own experience, you are missing out on the true blessing and joy of being a sentient being with free will and the power to create your experience. When you truly wake up to your power, working with opening and closing emotional/vibrational fields will assist you in creating the experience you want to create, no matter what is happening around you. It is a brilliant way to exercise and come into a greater understanding of your authentic power–the power of your word and intention to create new realities.
Of course, if you find that you are constantly closing and opening fields, and that it’s not sticking, let this be a cue that you have some inner work to do before you can truly align with your authentic power. There are frightened aspects of your personality that are begging to be understood and welcomed, and they are not going to let go of you, no matter what you do. They will keep coming back until you settle down and truly welcome them into your experience, which I fully understand is counter-intuitive and feels like the last thing you want to or are able to do.
Most people don’t know how to welcome the frightened aspects of the personality in a way that goes deep enough or that isn’t utterly overwhelming. It’s very easy to become distracted by the thoughts, images, and sensations that arise, when we call them forward, so please know that I would be so honored and blessed to support you in this. If you are ready to do some deeper Inner Work and move into the next phase of your personal growth, development, healing, and IMPACT, please schedule an Individual Healing Session today, and pay your own price.
As always, I hope that the perspective and information that I have shared here is grounding, inspiring, and empowering for you. If it doesn’t resonate, please do feel free to unsubscribe.
Be safe and be sovereign, my friend. Live fearlessly.
