Staying Open Hearted In The Eye Of A Storm

I’m sending out a quick note to say hello and let you know that I’ve been thinking of you and holding you in my heart.
I had planned on sending out my monthly newsletter several weeks ago but Mother Nature had other plans for me.  Hurricane Irma came barreling through my home state of Florida.  Although I feel very fortunate to still have my house, the energetic chaos that occured is undeniable.  I am still in the process of getting back to center.
Not only was there Hurricane Irma…but Harvey and Maria, an earthquake in Mexico, fires in California and the mass shooting in Las Vegas. Whether or not you were directly affected by any of these tragedies, I believe, as humans, collectively we are. We are just wired that way.
My heart goes out to those who have been personally impacted. And even if you haven’t been directly affected, I sense that this feeling of fear and being unsettled may be touching you too.
So how does one stay calm in the eye of a storm?  How do we dig deeper to stay positive or rested or grounded? How does one regroup when suddenly, in the blink of an eye, everything looks different on the outside?
If there was ever a time to lean into Soul Play  ~ this is it.
Finding a way to keep our hearts open and stand united is a huge part of Soul Play.
Getting support through the feelings of grief and fear and finding a way to take better care of myself enables me to be there for other people.
I feel like these are the times when I have to dig really deep in the spirit of Soul Play.  I create the space for love, compassion, companionship, support, and staying present.  Whether it’s donating to a relief fund, hugging someone you love and telling them that you love them or simply making eye contact with a stranger or offering someone a smile. Heaven knows we could all use some sort of support in weathering these storms of life.
Here’s a few suggestions of how to keep an open heart along the way through Soul Play:
*  Breathe into your body to stay in the present moment
*  Allow yourself to feel your feelings
Reach out to support another and lean in to support yourself
*  Tell the people you love that you love them
*  Practice self-care by tending to and grounding yourself
*  Stay open to possibilities
I invite you to practice one or more of the above suggestions or create your own version of open-hearted Soul Play.
With love and an open heart,
