What so many of us need to feel again. A deep internal calm. Right now the vibration around many of us is one of unsettled feelings. And this is not our norm, not the familiar. So how do you change your vibration?
Open your eyes.
You need to recharge your inner light. The spark within you that guides you towards yourself, towards Love again. It still burns inside you. Feel this spark inside you. Let it become bigger, brighter. Take yourself out into nature to recharge the calm in your nervous system. Look out into the light of the universe. Listen to the sounds of the ocean waves. Watch the awesomeness of the rising moon. Soak up the warm hues of the evening sky into your eyes, into your soul.
Then, let your soul fall into the feelings the earth calls forth within you. And as you do, fill your body with the calm and the love of the earth for you. Then open your arms wide and send your light into the world. You are the magic now. You are transforming the world’s vibration into Love.
And as each of us transform the earth’s vibration into love, our nervous systems will begin to calm. And as we calm, we we will begin to heal.
Bless you with gifts of calm. Thank you for this gift of you, Erin🦋
My husband and I sat down to watch Netflix. Last Tuesday, our kids were finally in bed and we were having a chance to connect and talk about how we are feeling about all the things that are happening in our world, and in our personal life. We live in Massachusetts. The schools closed on Thursday March 12, 2020. As everything was happening I was feeling fearful, worried. I couldn’t get my mind around what was going on. I worried about my kids, and wanting to make sure they were safe. I worried about my parents and their well-being. I worried. Plain and simple I was laced in anxiety. I tried my best to keep myself busy and distracted. But my body kept holding the fear. And I got tired from it…
How have you been?
Days went by, and on this particular Tuesday night that my husband and I were talking we expressed how life felt completely unhinged, upside-down. He asked, “Are you still feeling fear?” And I said, “Not as much, I think I’m just really sad. But it’s more than sadness. I think what we are feeling is GRIEF.” And he said, “Yes, I think you are right.” Grief, hu? Yes, grief. Today my 10 year old son asked me why he feels this weird feeling inside himself? And I asked him to tell me about it. Then I said, “You are feeling grief.” We talked about how we felt when our Dog died unexpectedly from a heart attack this past summer. He said, “Well, it’s not exactly like that kind of hurt.” And I shared, well no it’s not. We loved him. That’s a different kind of grief. But what we felt then is still a bit like what we are feeling now. We are feeling an unxpected loss. We have lost what “feeling normal,” feels like. We miss our friends, our activities, our freedom to go about our town, and to travel and look forward to things. We miss the life that we used to have. I imagine we all do. In fact, if you are feeling grief, it might not just be coming from within you. It is also coming from the vibration of the world. Because we are all interconnected, we all feel each other’s grief; the world’s vibration carries grief right now. And since most of us have more time to sit and reflect and be aware of our thoughts our bodies are actually telling us what we are feeling and holding inside ourselves. So we notice our feelings even more.
How are you doing?
So now what? How do you tend to your grief? You recognize and give yourself permission to feel this grief; you feel the sadness, fear, discomfort, etc. Don’t dismiss it. You do what you need to do to love yourself through this. Imagine what you’d do for a grieving family member or best friend. And do this same thing for yourself. Offer yourself compassion: “It’s okay to be feeling this.” I’ve been sitting with my grief these days. And working at tending to myself. I find that writing has been a place for me to release some of the sadness I feel. Writing this post is helping me right now. It gives me a place to feel connected. All of us being here together is healing. I imagine many of you are finding ways to release your feelings too. If not, do something out of the ordinary for yourself and be creative. If you can, go outside and listen to birds singing or notice something you haven’t before.
What are you doing to tend to yourself?
Be gentle with yourself. Know that it is okay to feel what you do. It is okay to grieve. It is okay to be you. You are created with divine design. You are formed from LOVE.
And as you go about your day. Offer yourself love. Offer someone you care for some love. And let your love heal you, and as you do this your love will help change the vibration of the world…
And you will begin to heal. We will all begin to heal together.
Author’s Note: ***We all have different reactions of how to handle what we are feeling. And my professional experience as a hospital Chaplain, has taught me each of us grieve differently. So we each have to work at accepting our friends and family with love and being supportive to each other as we are grieving. Even if the way you grieve is different from your partner’s, parent’s, friend’s etc. way of grieving. We all need each other right now. So supporting one another is deeply important to our healing.
These are hard days. I find myself getting weary as the evening falls upon us. The days are filled with daylight and busyness with my children. They are good distractions from the internal story I hold. But when evening comes, my mind quiets and I begin to feel all the confusion my body is holding. The confusion that wonders, how is all this real? This virus has altered life so suddenly. ..
How are you?
There was no way to prepare for how this would feel and there is no playbook to tell us how we will feel tomorrow and the next day; the only thing you can do is feel what is inside yourself at any given moment. And whatever you feel is okay. It’s real. .
You are not alone. I’m right here with you feeling it too. Each of us is right here with you, feeling it too. So be kind to yourself, and allow yourself to feel. You are amazing!
And I honor you for your honesty of being you. I honor the divinity of you.
How are you doing today?
I hold space for you. We all hold space for you.
Blessings upon you & all that you hold & feel, Erin

For a good few minutes, I forgot about what was happening in the world and felt like me. It happens from time to time, usually when I let my nervous system go off high alert, and I watch T.V. covered with a warm blanket over my lap, drifting off into the world on the show, forgetting my own. But of course the waking up happens, and my nerves go back into shock, and I realize I’m not dreaming. This kind of waking and sleeping of my body is so confusing. Nightmares are supposed to be dreams and real life is supposed to feel “normal” and safe, right?
I was watching “The Flash” Season 2 with my husband. Barry Allen is in battle with Metahumans from Earth 2. They have come to cause havoc on our earth. And of course The Flash and his team have to figure out how to conquer them. They realize that these Metahumans vibrate on a different frequency than humans on our earth do. Barry’s team realizes they need to create a sound that confuses their nervous systems and then the Metahumans no longer can cause harm. And as I watched this it dawned on me how this is the story we are living right now. We are sitting here in our homes on our Earth and The Virus* has come to cause havoc. And it vibrates at a different frequency than people do. It’s frequency is void of LOVE, it is of something else. It is causing more than just fear and anxiety, it is causing us to be separate from each other. It is taking from our way of life. It is shutting down the places we go for fun, taking from our earnings, isolating us—the things that are opposite to our humanness. And as The Virus does this it is changing the vibration in the earth and in us. And thus, we need to go beyond protecting ourselves and fight back in full force with our hearts. We need to LOVE Greatly; we need to open our hearts in a profound way. We need to take all the love that we have inside ourselves…that deep love we have for our children, our pets, our families, that LOVE that is the divine creation of us, and we need to open ourselves in multitudes, beaming that love straight from our hearts into the world, into the universe. Then when This Virus comes floating by it no longer can find us because our frequency has changed. And then we win.
But winning is more than just conquering The Virus. It’s an awakening in ourselves to our true essence. Just imagine when we conquer the fear and anxiety that consumes so many of us, and walk out our doors to reconnect with one another with love deeply shining from our hearts how incredible life will be. I can feel it. Can you? And when we awaken and find each other shining our Love and light intentionally out into the world we will discover nothing can really harm us; and a great healing will happen. You can change the vibration of the earth; you are a force of love and a spirit of hope at work in the world.
So take some intentional time out of your day and open your heart into the world. Let love beam from you in whatever way feels natural to you: a prayer, a song, a dance, words on paper, meditation, art or anything else. Imagine this world of ours full of your love and full of the love of each person. Pretty awesome, hu?
God, please hear us, listen to the cries of our hearts. We are afraid & uncertain of the world we live in right now. Please help us God. Please hear our prayers. We need you to come to the earth & heal us. We need you close to us. Please bless all who are suffering. Bless the dying. Bless all who are hurting & grieving. Please be with those who are lonely & frightened. Bless all the caregivers. God, please shine your healing light upon us, embrace us in your protection, lift our burdens, & bestow your mercy upon us. Amen.

for they are LOVE speaking to you.
Allow this LOVE
to be with you,
to hold you
to carry you
to guide you
and awaken you
There is a restlessness in our spirits. It is in the air, speaking through the earth and in the heartbeat of people. I’m sure you feel it too. This restlessness is a longing we are communicating to one another as we seek a deeper way to love one another, and to stand strong in the midst of defeats.
Restlessness is a beautiful gift. It awakens your sleeping spirit to become more than you already are. This feeling causes you to stop and notice that being comfortable in the mundane, is not what you were created to be doing. You are so much more, for the world and for yourself. So listen. Yes, listen hard and pay attention to what is happening within yourself. Be still with yourself. Take time to pray and meditate so you can understand the longing in your soul. Let your spirit leap!
Futhermore, restlessness calls you out of yourself and causes you to seek out others. It awakens our need to be in connection with one another and to bring about love and kindness. Our restless spirits seek each other out, and begin to work together to bring about beauty in the brokenness around us and in us. And as loving spirits find each other, the energy of the earth and the air transforms into Divine energy. Do you feel it?
We were not made to just accept life as it is. Each of us has a soul that is always longing for something more. It is this longing that causes us to be restless. And since the deepest essence of who we are is in our soul where Divine Light and Love reside, the force that is greatest in life is LOVE. So as you embrace your own restlessness and attune yourself to the restlessness of others, be still and let LOVE be the force within you that calms all fears and defeats all that is not LOVE. And allow LOVE to lead you forward in all that you do, and all that you imagine.
LONGING for deeper peace and love is the instigator of your restless spirit. LOVE drives you forward so that you do not just settle. It keeps the fire of longing lit so you seek to be more. Because many people, like you are experiencing longing LOVE is joining people together today. LOVE is the light in the world that says, “No matter how dark it may be, I will always be with you, lighting the way for you.”
Therefore, do not become discouraged with life. Do no despair. Do not worry. Do not become consumed by fear. Instead embrace your restless spirit; place your hand on your heart and send yourself love. Breathe in deeply and let the energy of all the LOVE in this world that other restless spirits are sending out fill your soul. Then send this LOVE back out into the world and universe. Open your eyes and see and feel the mystery and magic happening all around you. LOVE conquers. LOVE wins. LOVE blossoms. LOVE connects. LOVE is the eternal promise.
Always allow your restless spirit to awaken you to discover the magic, the mystery and beauty of yourself and life.You are LOVE at work in this world.
