This has been an unprecedented, relentless year of chaos, upheavel, trauma and uncertainty. It’s now suprise that people are feeling extremely overwhelmed and a stomach-churning sense of dread about the upcoming election.

No matter what side you’re on, you’re feeling it. The emotional cocktail includes grief, anger, sadness, bitterness, apathy and and many more. The divisions between friend, family and communities are feeling li ke a hot mess.

What we can control. We can control how we think, feel and behave. It’s so important to really know what we stand for and the values we want to convey. The question you can ask yourself each day is:

Q. Am I behaving according to my values? 

Q. What pulls me off balance from my beliefs and values? 

Q. How can I be a positive force for change in the world?

When you’re controling what you think, how you feel and how you behave, you can feel more grounded. Feeling grounded will help you through uncertain times. Sometimes, that’s all you can count on is your own sense of self control.

I also shared 4 coping strategies to help you. One quick thing I want to share before I send you off to watch the video. We are going through a massive shift within humanity right now. It helps to understand the cycles of change. Think of it as a wheel that keeps turning around and around. They are:

  1. New Beginnings
  2. Growth
  3. Maturation
  4. Turbulence 
  5. Chaos
  6. Dropping Off
  7. Dormancy
  8. Back to New Beginnings

We are in the turbulence and chaos stages of the cycles of change. This happens in nature every year with the seasons and it also happens with societies.

Old paradigms are dying and dropping off and new ideas and paradigms are being born. You’re witnessing and are a part of a massive shift in the collective consciousness of this planet. How will you respond? With love, compassion and a willingness to birth something new that allows for more unity, or are you going to live with fear, hatred and judgement. Remember, you have control over how you think, feel and behave.
