I have a friend in Japan, and today I learned he and his family are okay. I am relieved. Now that the initial, horrific danger from natural causes is calming, there are worries about what will happen with the nuclear reactors that have been damaged. My friend and his family are in the south-east, but radiation has a tendency to drift. There is nothing I can do directly, so I pray and send good energy for all those in Japan who are dealing with these events.
There are changes happening here on Earth, and change is never easy. Even good change creates stress. My spiritual beliefs are nature-based, and encompass my thoughts, emotions, and body as well as my spirit. I am a child of Spirit, and a child of this Earth. I believe there is a shift going on, from hierarchical, focus-on-the-individual values toward a real need to work together . . . to share our abilities and respect one another. This shift is going to happen whether we are ready or not; we can adapt and flow with it, or resist and fall. Nature is a part of this shift, so our Earth is shifting, too. Just as my spinal alignment affects the flow of energy in my body, that energy can also affect my alignment. I suspect something like that is happening with the Earth.
Frankly, I am struggling with the changes. For a variety of reasons, I did well with the old, do-things-yourself attitude. It is scary opening up to other people and working with them. I don’t know if I will succeed, but I have to keep trying. Namaste.
