As we Americans face the inauguration, fear arises in many of us. Many have expressed the fear of the violence that may erupt in coming weeks and months. Most of us are expressing fear of the hate and distrust that has gone underground. What to do to create ease?
I’m finding two things that are particularly supporting my sense of personal courage and confidence right now. One is taking a small action, any action, to serve in my community, and the other is a practice for calm strength and energy.
My present action is here: The “Trashy Divas”, a group of us in Tucson, gather every month to clear our favorite trail. Yes, it’s small in the scheme of things, but it mitigates the feeling of helplessness that may overwhelm us when we tune into the news. When we’re done, we feel a shared sense of accomplishment.
My practice, downloadable here, is Victory Goddess, Utkata Konasana. This pose helps boost my inner sense of strength, and can improve focus and balance. Try it, and stay safe, stay well.
my warmest namasté,
