Last week was very challenging. I found it difficult to sit peacefully. And I found it difficult to focus on positive outcomes or images. I know I was carrying around a lot of unresolved anxiety, as our new president was sworn into office. I gave myself permission to really grieve on Friday night as my ideals and my voice and my values are not being represented and fear about the future for many different people clouded my heart and head. On Saturday I participated in my local Women’s March, and I was able to tap into that energy that is much bigger than we each are as individual humans. It was exactly what I needed to move through my fear and anger. I am now refocusing on ideals and working diligently to focus and concentrate my mind on what I want and not to worry about what fear-based distractions set in. If I wish to eliminate fear I concentrate on courage. If I wish to eliminate lack I concentrate on abundance. If I wish to eliminate disease I concentrate on health. If I wish to eliminate hate I concentrate on love. If I wish to eliminate exclusion I concentrate on inclusion. If I wish to eliminate intolerance I focus on tolerance. The current state of political affairs in the country really motivates me to become better at visualizing my ideals and concentrating on the outcome with all of my intention and emotion.
