I am not afraid
I’m finding it interesting that a song known as the unofficial anthem of the labour and civil rights movement has been stuck in my head for over a month.
Lets face it there’s a lot going on “out there” right now.
Lots of finger pointing, lots of fear, lots of information from so many different sources.
Hard to know what to think or feel.
So here’s what I know:
1. The truth is probably somewhere in the middle as opposed to far right or left. Or maybe not.
That’s all I’ll say about that….
2. Fear is our biggest challenge right now because it increases stress. When our stress response is activated, fight or flight, our immune response is diminished.
That’s not good….
3. Our bodies are beautifully/wonderfully made.
Here’s what I’m doing:
1. Limiting what I watch, read or listen to. My body does not respond well to constant bombardment of information. Especially information with such low vibration that brings my vibration down. I consume enough news to stay informed from sources I trust. Thats it.
2. I take care of my body: good food, water, sleep, movement and some supplements. I’m continuing with my vitamin D (I usually just take it in the Winter) and have added some vitamin C.
3. I’ve stepped up my spiritual practice by meditating daily. I also take part in virtual healing sessions with practitioners I’ve worked with in the past.
4. I spend time outside in nature every day. I breathe deep and drink it in.
5. I stay connected with friends and family with all the wonderful technology available.
6. I’m using my oils for physical and emotional support.
All this, helps keep my vibration high (Love=gratitude, joy, happiness, harmony, etc) as opposed to low (Fear=anxiety, panic, scarcity, etc).
My nervous system is calm, quiet.
My immune system is supported.
I am supported.
It keeps me connected to what I know is right and true.
I feel it in my body.
And I trust my body.
I’ve said it before, the only two options we ever have, in any situation.
We can chose love or fear.
I chose love.
I am not afraid.
How about you?
