This next week is an energetic week for implementing small steps to change. It’s the primaries and your chance to VOTE. It’s your chance to influence people and let others know what you will stand for.
Be aware of your energy and the energy you put out there. It’s an intense time and so many sensitivities. Be sure to LISTEN. Ask better questions and be open. We all are so uncertain to what the truth is, including myself. I’ve found myself in so much ANGER in the past few months, which is why I’ve returned to my QiGong practice for wisdom, flow, and meditation. Perhaps this will help you connect to your ANGER for a Spiritual Force.
We’re going through a powerful passage in the US. Finally, there are so many voices joining together to speak up on so many systems that are broken. What will you be passionate about to do something about it? I truly believe we’re entering a very different future. But we must stand firm in our dedication to do the right thing, and keep this change alive and growing.
Over the past many days, I’ve turned to what I’ve learned studying how energy moves / how change happens, in order to understand how I can best support this important transformation.
The spiritual side of Chinese medicine teaches that anger can be a healthy force for change. Anger is the emotion that rises inside us when we see something we know is wrong and we want to change it.
Then anger translates into drive, the feeling that motivates us to take action, to right the wrong, and bring positive change to the situation.
In that case, anger acts like a booster rocket, to get us going, and then it falls away once it’s done its job. Anger isn’t needed anymore.
In Chinese medicine, the sound of anger is described as “thunder” and in personal behavior as a “shout.” This is why we feel compelled to speak up when we see something wrong, why we yell when we’re angry.
But when wrong actions continue for years, and decades, and centuries, and there is no positive change, we as a people and as a culture all have to stand up together and “shout” – And that’s what we’ve been seeing happen in the US.
Healthy anger doesn’t lead to violence. Healthy anger is when we speak up, take a stand and don’t back down. It takes all of us joining together, using our anger as a spiritual force to create a breakthrough.
In the cycle of how energy moves, when anger is effective in creating change, the next emotions that rise inside us are joy and expansive love, and we already see that beginning to happen around us even now.
The loving and inclusive culture that can emerge from these times is within our power to create! I hope you’ll hold that vision with me as you take action in the ways that feel right to you. I would love to know what you are angry and passionate about these days.
Please allow yourself space during this uncertain time and take care of yourself. I’m here to help you with your beauty and energy needs. I am open for services IN STUDIO, REMOTE, and MOBILE!
