The Chinese Curse + crazy world events… and what you can do about it.

The Chinese Curse for Web

The Chinese Curse: “May you live in interesting times…”

2016 – Interesting times.

The past decade – Interesting times. (No matter where in the world you live).

On the eve of the US election results, as external events get more and more “interesting” and rollercoaster-ish, I ask myself:

“What can I do to stay centered, grounded, connected to love and feeling abundant?”

And the answer is:

Build Internal Resilience

…through…

1. Kindness and gentleness (Non-Violence)

2. Being at Ease

and

3. Keep choosing love over fear.

1. Kindness and Gentleness  (Non-Violence)

Start with non-violence to yourself. Which means:  Look after yourself.

Look after yourself physically – go for walks, eat well, sleep, rest, meditate, get into the healing power of nature.

Look after your relationships – with your family, friends, colleagues, community.

Look after yourself financially – consolidate your financial affairs so that you build up some resilience.

Look after yourself mentally – which may mean disconnecting from all media sources. The media is like junk-food for the mind. It can be a fear-laced poison that keeps you frozen or ignites feelings of separation, judgement and violence towards yourself and others.

Look after yourself spiritually – whatever “connecting to spirit” means for you – do that often.

Be as kind and gentle with yourself as possible.

Shift your “internal speaking to yourself” to that of speaking to a 5 year-old, vulnerable child.

We can not hope for a shift in the “violence” of racism, sexism, and all the other -isms that separate us if we do not first undertake kindness and gentleness with self and heal the schism in self.

If you haven’t downloaded it yet, I give my gift of the “Peace Within Meditation” because at times like these, only when you cultivate peace within can you expect peace externally.

2.  Being at Ease

Move out of the fear-induce struggle-paradigm and get “okay” with what is.

In our Flow Experience we teach a very simple, yet powerful mantra:

“Even though this situation is not ideal, in this moment it’s okay and in this moment I’m okay”

Breathe…  Repeat Mantra… Breathe… Repeat Mantra.

3. Keep choosing Love over Fear

Before you take any action, say anything or post anything on social media, ask yourself:

“What would LOVE do here?”

If you can’t take an action from a place of “love” then don’t do it!

And if you are in the grip of a fear or anxiety or stress moment, go back to the Ease Mantra above and do something to be kind and gentle to yourself.

As the stampede of panic started yesterday morning, and I found myself getting caught up in the drama of “interesting times”. I came back to these three things.

Kindness, Ease, Love.

I breathed. Got present and repeated the ease mantra – ALOT – because, let’s face it, the result of the US election is definitely not ideal.

I ate a good breakfast to nourish myself. I felt inspired to begin this email, because that was my answer to “What would Love do now?”

BUT

I kept being sucked back into the drama on my Facebook feed.

Once I realised the fear-inducing nature of this, I shut down my computer and took myself off to a spa. I had a sauna (while overlooking the magnificent views of Cape Town on a sunny day) and had a body scrub and a massage.

And in the evening I ate a good vegetarian meal, chitter-chatted with my man and finished writing this.

The fear has lifted.  And I feel grounded, centered, peaceful, love-filled and abundant.

I wish you the same.

 

Love, wishes and magic

Doing it for 5 minutes a day can shift your fear immensely. And it’s really easy because I guide you through the whole thing.

And if your mind wanders off or you fall asleep during the meditation, that’s okay, it’s still working. I promise.
