There are unspeakable tragedies in the world right now; it’s enough to make you want to scream or curl up in a ball and hide under the covers. And maybe you need to do either, or both.
You can’t turn a blind eye, but neither can you let it consume you and take you down a dark rabbit hole.
When you feel helpless, take action. Any positive action to bring your light and your hope to the situation.
For some that may mean literally being amongst the ground crew; working to bring awareness by volunteering, protesting, or running for office. For some, that may mean financial contributions. For others, it might mean helping and healing the situation energetically. None are more/less valuable than others, they’re simply various ways you’re best equipped to help.
Yesterday’s tragic shootings are the latest in the more recent onslaughts. Gun violence may be where your Soul calls you to participate to bring healing and create change. Maybe you’re compassionate about that issue, but the drought and climate change are the areas that draw you in. Maybe it’s the Ukraine, the war on Women’s rights, the continuation of Covid, or the shortage of food in Africa. It might be a combination of these or many other issues.
You won’t be effective though if you spread yourself too thin. If you try to help everyone everywhere, you’ll burn yourself out.
There are so many areas that need your compassion and light- so pick a few and focus there. When you want to hide and give up, choose to show up instead, even if not literally in person.
It can be overwhelming, but as much as possible, don’t allow it to be.
Take your power back and choose to be even more of a light in a world seemingly filled with darkness.
And it is seemingly because if you actually look, there’s more light than ever before, but it can be hard to see.
So look for it, choose to see it. Even the tiniest act of kindness brings more light. Be that for the world. You incarnated during this time for a reason- because you bring something to the world that it needs.
Take care of you first, then shine like you’ve never shone before.

Yes! As an analogy I recently read, each one of us is one cell in the body of the wholeness of this universe, we must become as healthy as we can to change the whole, one cell at a time.

Overwhelmed by too much to do/help is correct. And then I don’t do anything but hide. You’re blog was the perfect timing & message to remind me of what I can do, without feeling it’s not enough. If everyone felt that, nothing would change. So thank you, I needed this motivation and inspiration 🌟🌟🌟
