It is a difficult time for the global community. People are angry, sad, and frightened about the division and injustice they are seeing. Taking time away from all the distressing media doesn’t mean you don’t care; it means you are prioritizing self-care, which is essential to your mental, physical and spiritual wellbeing! Here are a few ways you can heal yourself and uplift others during these disheartening times.
When you are feeling anxious and flooded with emotions, grounding can help soothe and comfort you. Grounding can be done in a variety of simple ways. You can go into nature and run your toes through the grass or sit under a tree and connect with the oneness of Gaia. You can do something similar indoors, wrapping your self in soothing experiences for your five senses; sight, hearing, smell, taste, and touch. You may also want to explore healing crystals for grounding, such as red jasper, smoky quartz, or hematite.
Cleansing is a valuable practice when you need spiritual healing. Try smudging with Palo Santo, sage, or beautifully wrapped bundles of sage and dried flowers. You can also place cleansing crystals, such as selenite, clear quartz, or black tourmaline around your home. Both practices will help lift your vibration and the vibration of your living space. Explore the reiki practice of channeling Divine white light throughout your home and your aura. If you feel inclined, you can even send this healing white light to those in your city, state, country, or world!
Love is the most healing energy in the world! To help lift despair and stress, you should amplify your loving vibration. You can do this with heart chakra meditations, mindfully visualizing vibrant greens and pinks, or listening to the healing frequency of 639 Hz for your 4th chakra. You may benefit from different tones of pink and green healing crystals. Carry them with you, wear them, or create a crystal grid for love and unity to uplift yourself and humanity! The truth is, “what the world needs now is love, sweet love,” and by healing yourself, you will amplify love in the world!
