As our nation grieves with those affected by the Sandy Hook tragedy, the notion that we are all connected becomes highlighted. From the heroic acts to the heartfelt expressions by millions of strangers being sent to those devastated, it is clear that there is a special force within us connecting us despite time, space or distance.
Those of us who were not directly affected can only feel a fraction of their deep sadness, anger and fear, but there is an obvious tugging at the hearts of nearly all Americans (and world-wide). It is this kind of loss that makes it difficult to feel inner-peace and joy. The heart closes in an effort to heal. Energetic anxiety-ridden protective responses take a toll on the body.
Millions are asking, “How can I help those who were crushed by this tragedy?”
There are two simple things I explain in these two short videos that each of us can do right now to help speed the healing process.
I was in the process of creating these videos before the tragedy.
1. How to Let Go: The first one was originally for helping: a) those mourning the loss of loved ones during the holiday season; and b) those who have trouble letting go of the expectations we place on ourselves and each other during this time. There is a common tendency to replay conversations and events in our minds, keeping us from being present, from being able to feel love. It can be hard to let go. This technique, which takes 20 seconds or less, helps with all of this. (Total Video Time: 2:08; Technique Demo at 1:15.)
