Welcome to ⚡️ The Destiny Architecture Blueprint for 6/27/22.
How do we move forward now?
Many women I know say we are under attack.
Some women tell me they don’t feel under attack and praise this as a spiritual victory.
Others I know don’t live in the U.S. and look on in the usual abject horror as Western democracy continues to fall. Or don't notice us at all.
What do I know for sure?
Everyone seems to care. Everyone seems to have an opinion.
But what no one seems to know?
How do we move forward now?
Regardless of where you stand on the issues, I think we can all agree a tipping point has been exceeded. An arrow has been drawn too far back. People are angry & at each other’s throats. No one is shy about how last week’s decisions made them feel. Add on inflation, war...many a short fuse is burnt to a crisp.
I decided to take a different route.
I could feel the pot beginning to boil over this month. I decided to opt out. No one cares what I have to say about it. My “thoughts” change nothing. There’s nothing I can DO about “it,” whatever you decide “IT” means to you.
Recently, I hit a tipping point of my own. I have just enough of an online audience to get trolls now! Yay, I made it!
But how best to handle the trolls who leave weird, angry, or nuisance comments?
I gave it some thought and had a realization.
I mustn’t sink to the level of online bullies who try and ruin my day with weird or nasty comments. I must not react or respond. I realized that if I am to respond, even with the most skillful kindness, two things will happen.
I will become both victim and perpetrator.
I made it my own personal policy not to feed the trolls. I refuse to put gas 0n their fire. 🔥 I prefer a world of kindness. It has to start with me.
No more online arguing for me. I want to preserve my peace.
This brings us to my answer to the original question: How do we move forward?
The best move is always to practice radical self-care.
It's time to pour into ourselves. Pour in what feeds your soul. Spend time creating, taking care of yourself, eating well, hydrating, receiving/practicing Reiki, practicing yoga, and practicing meditation.
If you still come up short after practicing radical self-care, scream into the void. Let the emotions out!
We must begin with ourselves. We cannot transform the world into what we want it to be without rest, self-care, and investing in our own practices. We must "fill our own cup" or "put the oxygen mask on ourselves first."
Just as I don't wish to engage the trolls, I personally don't wish to engage in any arguments right now. Energy is precious.
In Reiki, we always say not to consume too much news. I used to say this. Now I say to practice moderation. This way, we strike a balance between being aware of what's happening (for our safety) and also being able to disengage from the noise.
In short, if it feeds your soul, do it! Whatever it is. If it starves your soul, disentangle from it.
A Free Yoga Class This Week (for off-the-mat practices)
Please take this yoga survey if you haven't already to help me hone my offerings for when I complete my RYT-200! I'll be offering yoga 🧘♀️ But what kind do you want? Let me know by taking the survey 😊 Thank you!
Speaking of yoga, one of my teachers is giving a free offering this week! I highly recommend Bright Life Yoga Collective with Eric Walrabenstein! Here's the info for his free online class Tuesday night. I've been in the collective for 18 months—since it began—and Eric has helped me find my real, true path of yoga. This has helped reduce any anxiety I had (real or perceived).
The Return of Reiki to Wichita Was Amazing!
Thanks to those who came out to share space with me and receive Reiki at White Dove. I felt called to bring back Reiki for a lower price.
I explain more in this video 👇
The Next Reiki Day at White Dove Is July 30!
This first Saturday back at White Dove went so well, we're doing it again!
Let's make it a regular thing on the final Saturday every month. This will always be the link to book your session ahead of time to save your appointment time and pay online.
Cash is always welcome, too!
The final Saturday of the month at White Dove will also be a great time to try a complimentary life coaching session or book a low-cost, in-person session.
As I say above in the video, I want healing modalities to be affordable.
I'll offer affordable coaching monthly at White Dove during this time. Just like Reiki sessions, they'll be 25 minutes for $40.
Make it a monthly self-care date with yourself.
You can also call Dale to let him know you'd like to make a Reiki appointment! (He'll let me know). 316-262-3683.
You can always reach me by email at firstname.lastname@example.org 😊
Thank you for reading!
