I think everyone goes through their own version of a Dark Night of the Soul, at least once.
It seems our country (the US) is having one of her very own right now. This has been building for quite some time. We all chose to be here now to help her through it, to remind her WHO SHE IS and that she is loved.
We are seeing and hearing a lot that makes us cringe and scream. And cry. When you can remember that no one is actually beating the hell out of you, give your adrenals a rest. Breathe. Remember to breathe. No matter how hard it seems we are being divided, we're all going through this together.
Hug your loved ones tight, smile at strangers, offer kindness where you can, and BREATHE.
Just breathe it all in.
When someone goes through a Dark Night, there is the promise of the Dawn. The only way one can get through the darkness (and the madness), is to Trust that there will be a dawn.
The Dawn is coming. Be a Light in her sky.
