As I write this we are one full year since the world changed so dramatically; we are also in an awakening of human consciousness and I believe these are connected.
What we have seen unfold over the last year, and still unfolding, are beyond what most of us would have imagined had we had been told this is how it would be one year from now.
I know I’m not the only one when I say ‘This is all feeling kind of surreal.’
This is what it feels like when reality shifts.
We could not have realized we would have to completely change and adapt to how we do so many things. We have been faced with many hardships and uncertainties with the biggest fears at the forefront, the fear of the unknown, and the fear of death.
Sadly many people have left this realm alone and afraid this past year and it’s not over. This experience has forced many of us to face the avoided fear of dying. We have paused fully living for a whole year to prevent more from dying.
But were we ever fully living?
These extenuating circumstances have also been a reality check. Besides reevaluating our lives we have been learning to be ok not knowing what will happen. This has forced many of us to practice living in the moment because that’s the only thing we can control.
But not everyone can manage that with all the technology we have been reverted to rely on even more. Our mental health issues have skyrocketed and so many are facing desperate measures and don’t know how to feel better under all the stress.
Too much has changed too fast for us to go back to ‘normal’, whatever that really was. Let’s face it, our world needs a lot of T.L.C. and healing. This is a major growth experience for all of us.
I don’t have all the answers but I do know we can all use more love, kindness, and real connection during these trying times. These simple and important needs help us to move through these stages of awakening with more ease and grace.
Because of the work I do, I am very cognizant of keeping myself as neutral as I can so I can stay in my heart, but I am human too and I have my moments of victimhood like anyone else.
The difference is I am now conscious of it, and I know what to do when I fall out of alignment with myself. Whatever judgments come up for me I use them as an opportunity to heal more of my victim consciousness and let go of it the best I can.
When I apply Radical Forgiveness to the situation at hand I find freedom from needing to be right, blaming others for my life circumstances, and feeling afraid of what may unfold in the future.
Created by the late Colin Tipping in the mid-’90s, the Radical Living tools and processes are a proven way to navigate the reality shift we are experiencing. It supports us to let go of our feelings of anger, resentment, and feeling victimized to feeling more peace and having more understanding, love, and acceptance for all. When we use it regularly we are cultivating resilience that supports us to move through these times of transition with more ease and an open heart.
This way-of-being allows me to stay in compassion through forgiving myself and others. It allows me to surrender my fears and trade them in for divine truth, hope, possibility, and love.
Using these simple practices, which we call spiritual technology, keeps our vibrations at a healthy level and we can use them whenever it’s needed to heal and help others heal too. Because let’s face it, it can be easy to get sucked back into feeling victimized and we want to be aware of when it happens and be the change we wish to see outside of ourselves.
There are also those of us who are luminaries by leading the way to building a world based on love, kindness, truth, and equality. I am in awe as I see many individuals stepping up to help others, opening up difficult conversations that weigh on our minds, and sharing wisdom to help us all stay connected to what matters.
One of these luminaries is my friend Dr. Darshana Hawks who is having Conversations That Matter. Dr. Dar interviewed me on the subject of Radical Forgiveness, and we talk about how we can let go of the pain we are experiencing, find relief, and our way back to our hearts.
We had a very informative and enlightening conversation and at the end, I share a guided healing experience that you can participate in when you tune in. I also share a valuable Radical Living tool to use in your everyday life so you can process whatever comes up for you and return to peace.
Here’s the link again to Conversations That Matter with Dr. Dar., if you sign up for my 4 part Video Series on her page you will also receive my email Love Letters.
I will leave you with this: the most healing thing you can do for yourself is to forgive and let go. Your soul will thank you for it and the freedom it brings you is life-preserving and life-changing.
In my next blog, I’ll be sharing how I apply Radical Forgiveness to holding a vision to heal the world.
Until next time, many blessings,
