Being emotionally detached allowed me to send prayers and healing to the victims, it allowed me to send energy to those in need, it allowed me to focus on what was important for me at that time in history. I could help. I could pray, I could send healing energy, light and love. Had I been embroiled in the anger and hate of that time then I would not have been able to stay focused to send unconditional love.
At times like these, and there have been a number of them the last decade, I always go back to the teachings of Don Miguel Ruiz, The Fifth Amendment. He teaches, “Be skeptical, but learn to listen.” In short he teaches, “Don’t believe yourself or anybody else. Use the power of doubt to question everything you hear. Is it really the truth? Listen to the intent behind words, and you will understand the real message.”
This advice comes in good stead now with all the talking heads in the media. Who to believe, to trust? I’ll write more on listening to your inner guidance soon.
