Grace under Pressure

How do we keep our cool when the temperature rises in our blood? Do we count to ten and breathe deep like our elementary school guidance counselors used to tell us, or do we take the stress in and spit it out with volcanic eruptions?

This weekend in New England, the barometric pressure is high, a storm is brewing and celestially and energetically we are all being affected. So keeping our cool is being put to the test. More on that after I reread and recap a recent astrological report that shook me up a bit with warnings.

In any case, and there are many out there, try this during an emotional thunder storem: shut your eyes, look inward at your third eye (the calm) and try to heed your intuition's silent advice which is to just be still. Let it rain, Let it rain, Let it rain, but remain the calm in the eye of the storm.

Let every mean and cruel, volatile word or action swirl around you and stay still, even when you are accused of avoiding the situation, stay calm and yes breath a whirl of fresh ocean air in and about the rocky coastline of your being, now bruised and a bit eroded, but still beautiful and full of Grace.

Accept the storm, know it will pass, and prepare to no longer accept the damage and violations to your spirit that your unsettled feelings have stirred. Be the beach at low tide and just let the seaweed and driftwood find a still place to settle on your shore, knowing that the calm is always the best place to be in a storm, even in the midst of it.

hOMe Shanti Shanti Shanti
