My dear friend, the wise and beautiful Rev. Cynthia James, sent out a blog the other day filled with important and potent advice on dealing with the times we are in.
She has graciously given me permission to share this with you:
These last few months have been quite a ride. A pandemic, social unrest, and political upsets have created upset, division and emotional disturbance. It has been hard to keep up day to day with all of the changes.
I, personally, have had to find more ways to become clear, stay focused and stay still within myself. Quite frankly, I have had to learn how to navigate the chaos of these times.
Let me share what I mean by first beginning with definitions.
To Navigate: to move on, over, or through (water, air, or land) in a ship or aircraft; to manage or direct a course.
The word chaos derives from a Greek word meaning “chasm” or “void,” which makes sense, given that chaos also refers to the formless state of matter before the cosmos was created. It also means a state of utter confusion or disorder; a total lack of organization or order. any confused, or disorderly mass.
Many of my clients, worldwide, describe their current life situation as chaotic. People are working virtually. Homes are now combinations of workplace, home schooling, parenting, and family life.
People are experiencing depression from having no time or space for themselves. Children are going “stir-crazy” and young people are becoming rebellious. They simply want to get out, be with friends and connect. Single people are desperate to date and commune. Families are suffering from lack of in-person connection.
Some people call this the “nervous” factor. This means that people no longer have the luxury of a leisurely approach to life and/or business. Instead, chaotic conditions start their day and do not stop. Even while sleeping, people feel anxious and disturbed.
We are in a time of great transition. In childbirth, transition is the last phase and the most difficult phase of labor. Contractions intensify. It can be so powerful that some women begin to doubt their ability to birth the baby naturally and start requesting medications. Irritability and upset can also increase. Every woman has been told about this phase but when it is occurring, managing the pain and energy becomes hard.
I think humanity is experiencing the same thing. Everything is intensifying and many of us doubt our ability to navigate these uncharted waters. We know life changes. We know that we cannot predict the future. We also know that human beings don’t always deal with change easily. Even though we consciously know that… we have become anxious, intolerant, impatient, and even cranky.
So, what is the answer? How do we manage these times? I want to give you some tools.
