“The sky is falling! The Sky Is Falling!” I say this when I look into the mirror in the early morning and think I need a face lift. This phrase was said by cartoon character Chicken Little in a 1943 short film showing the evils of mass hysteria or we could say simply say showing the evils of panic and stress.
What We Need for the Sky is Falling Stress
What we need is calm courage in these special times. We are still facing uncertainty as we move into pandemic recovery. The truth is we are always in uncertainty but generally pretend it is not happening. One thing you can count on is change. There is just a tendency to panic when it happens suddenly. You can find more about change in the blog Change, Change, Change
It is often what I like to call our ‘inner animal’ that feels scared. This is our emotional side felt in the body. I know when that happens for me I feel the fear in my body. Do you? So how can we take care of this fragile emotional-body part of us?
First recognize that it is happening, if your body is in pain and you haven’t sustained an injury or even if you have, feel the feeling. What is it pointing to…what fear or…? What is the thought behind the feeling pr pain. And no, not your current thought “Go Away!”.
How are you going to nurture and take care of your ‘inner animal’? How can you make you and it feel safe? What does it take?
Life is complicated, messy and yet here we are in this very moment. I remind myself, I am safe in this very moment and count my supports, my friends and rest into the awareness of something larger than my personal self. It also helps to rest into the awareness of awareness. How about You?
Well, a few face creams applied to my face will help the wrinkles and crinkles….and a little love for myself plus some body work and perhaps a few natural supplements. I am good to go! And also a few dedicated talks with my own self.
