When it comes to the news in the media and all of the pain and drama in the world, I don't usually go looking it up to absorb it continuously. However yesterday when the terrorist attack hit Brussels, I was at work and during lunch the "breaking news" was on TV. I sat there quietly, somehow drawn into the story of what had happened... and I felt sad for the people who had just been through such a traumatic experience. I took a deep breath and tried to give it a place, and all I could do was just realize how blessed I was to be sitting there safely looking at a TV screen, instead of being right there where those people were. Yes those are the moments we may be tempted to call out "oh God where is this world going to?", but I really believe there is a lot of good going on the world... and that stuff just doesn't make the news as often. I decided to push away the arising fear of what kind of future my young children will be facing, and focus on the things I DO have within my own hands and control.
All that I really have right now is my free will. With this free will I make choices everyday. I choose my thoughts and my actions and do the best that I can to contribute to the highest frequencies of love on this planet.
The kids I am raising ARE the future of this world, so all I can do each day is do my best to allow them to grow up peacefully and feeling loved, and pass on the vision of building a world based on unity.
Maybe I tell myself all of that to make myself feel better... because the sadness of such hate and destruction in this world we live in must have stuck to me on some level.
There seemed to be no escape when it came to hearing more news on the events in Brussels and as I sat on the couch last night around ten PM I let out a deep sigh.
Just then I heard my three (and three quarter) year old son crying upstairs and went to go and see what was wrong. I was about ready to call it a day anyway.
My little boy was in one of his crying moods where he just seems to feel so hopelessly sad and can't tell me why. He just cries and when I ask him what is wrong he just carries on crying. Trying to hold him or comfort him doesn't help either. I decided to get ready for bed and walked to the bathroom. He just followed me and sat on the floor in tears.
Eventually I went down on my knees and sat in front of him and just looked at him.
Suddenly I wondered if my sensitive child might be feeling so yukky because of the vibes he had picked up during the day. Maybe he had dreamt something scary and woke up feeling afraid. Who knew?
So I said to him, "You don't have to carry the weight of the world. You can let it go. You just have to be you."
The instant I spoke these words he stopped crying and came to sit on my lap. He placed his head against my chest and rested there for a while. I hugged him and asked if he was feeling better and he smiled and said yes. I was quite amazed I must say... It felt like magic.
After that I put him in bed and he fell asleep.
As I laid down to go to sleep myself, I stared up at the ceiling and thought about what I had said to my own son. I have had many experiences where I realized that my children were being my "child-mirrors" and perhaps this was just another one of these moments.
My child-mirrors reflect my blind spots... the bits and pieces I try to hide and cover up with an adult way of rationalizing. Sometimes I try to cover it up with wise words and hopeful statements and ignore that deep down inside there is this deep sadness about witnessing the (self)destruction of humanity.
So I will take my own words to heart and say "I give myself permission to let go of the weight of the world completely, from my conscious and subconscious cellular memory. I will not focus of the dark cloud of the old ways of the collective consciousness, but I will focus on all the positive changes and the awakenings happening all over the planet."
All I can do every day... it just be me. I choose to be the happiest me I can be. No matter what goes on in the world, the only place I will ever find true peace, is right here within my own heart and mind. It is up to me to create it, and so I shall.
