I stayed quiet for days. Because the truth is my confusion and overwhelm meant that I was not ready to speak to the current state of the world and the most recent events in Charlottesville. And I know I am not alone when I say, that as a highly sensitive, empathic woman, I feel the weight of the pain that spans across the nations....
Yes I am a White Woman and so you may say, who am I to understand or speak to this? And I admit there is so much more for me to understand, and that I am learning. All I know is I feel it all and I have a voice that is here to offer up love.
Today on the blog I am speaking about how we are either contributing to the hate, pain and war conversation and creating division, or we are contributing to love and healing. And I wish to also say that despite what people may say, it is okay if you have not shared any of your thoughts on this topic. This does not make you any less committed to the new earth.
If you have been drawn to my work, I know that you have a vision for a better world. I know that you have a desire to see real change in the hearts of individuals, communities and families. And I also understand that as highly sensitive women and empaths, you FEEL it all. That sometimes it can be hard to know what to say. And so we may stay silent. And we start questioning if what we are doing is enough. But I want you to know that you are enough and what you do is enough. Please do not for one moment start underestimating yourself and your ability to create change. We can all do our part in a way that is conscious, loving and kind.
In all honestly, I have been pretty overwhelmed and shocked the past few days with the amount of hate and fear circling my newsfeed. Fear mongering from 'powerful' women, thought-leaders and so called 'spiritual' people, implying that we are not doing enough in our corner of the world.
This is not the answer. or I truly believe that there is a way to be heard without raising your voice in anger and in a hateful, fear based way. Contribute to the conversation, but do so out of love. Open your mouth only when the words you speak are done so in an inclusive and loving way. Not in a high-horse pedestal way. Hate cannot drive out hate. We know this!
"We are either contributing to love or we are contributing to fear."
The era of the Sacred activist is here. It is not a time for complacency. It is a time for speaking up, but doing so in a conscious loving way. And if you have nothing nice to say, then don't say anything at all. Or if the overwhelm is real, know that I and other paradigm-shifters are not judging you for remaining silent. We speak in other ways sometimes. through our art, through our bodies, through our prayers, through our journal entries. And that is more than okay.
Eleven Ways We Can Contribute Today
May we continue to do all things in love.
May we stay connected to our truth.
May we stay in our integrity.
Let's walk together in love.
Lets walk together knowing that the contribution we make is creating ripple effects.
Lets walk together knowing that we are doing enough.
I believe we can do this, sisters. I really do.
With love, Chelsea xx
