Taking a break this week from our Self-Care Strategies for Fear series, to just be with the ever-shifting emotions I’m feeling as we navigate the election here in the United States. We’ll be back with part 6 next week. If you want support for being with your emotions this week, check out part 4.
For now – a prayer for the waiting, for anyone who needs it.
Presence of Love,
Please be with me today.
Soothe my nerves and help me to be gentle with myself.
Give me focus and purpose –
even one so inconsequential as washing a dish or a window with care.
Give me the courage to feel what’s mine to feel,
to stay with myself and in my body
through the waves of emotion.
Remind me that feelings always have an end.
Give me hope in humanity,
in the miraculous and unexpected,
in my own ability to handle hard things.
Thank you for every bit of joy and comfort I find today.
May I receive it fully and use it to fuel my own pursuits of love and justice.
With love and gratitude,
