No matter what side of the line you stand on, we can all agree it’s been a crazy few weeks for America. We find ourselves in a country incredibly divided, which for many people was shocking in its immediacy. As a meditation coach, I have been hearing non-stop stories of irreparable rifts between friends, loved ones, co-workers and family members that exploded in a seeming instant. Fear, anxiety, sorrow, heartache and anger pervade all over our social media pages and in our conversations as people fight, unfollow and unfriend each other. As a country, we are in a 24-7 argument with ourselves right now. And people are collectively exhausted.
To move through this difficult time, it’s important to have some tools to help navigate these choppy waters. Now more than ever, it is vitally important to stay grounded, practice self care and connect to the things that you love to stay in balance and not get swept away in all of the emotional turmoil of the moment. So take your fingers off the keyboard, step away from that Facebook argument for a second and take a few deep breaths. It’s time to remember who we are and how we truly want to behave in the world. The best remedy for getting unstuck from negative feelings is to get into ACTION. So here is a meditation to help you de-stress and reconnect to what is good in your self, in your life and in other people. Connect to your goodness, grace and gratitude and remember that we are all one people living on one earth. The Kinks definitely said it best, “We are not two, we are One.”
