If you read my last blog on transforming the energy of world events, you’ll recall that much of our reaction comes from the emotions the particular event brings up for us. I think the one emotion we can readily identify with when we see people suffering the effects of war and natural disasters is grief.
Even if, on the nightly news, we have only tiny glimpses of those who have lost family, friends and their homes expressing their grief, it is still hard to watch. We can hardly imagine how we would feel if we lost half as much as they. We feel the grief with them and for them.
But insofar as we can empathize with them, it is likely to trigger our own grief, not to mention a whole range of other emotions. That’s why it is so hard to watch and why a lot of people avoid information about what is happening out there in the world. That’s not good.
Whereas in many cultures it is understood that grief is a long term emotion, expected to last at least a year, in our culture it is given short shrift. A few days off perhaps and then back to work. The grief is then suppressed. It will remain that way until it gets triggered by watching others grieve openly and with full expression of the pain.
If we are to make the kind of difference in the world that I outlined in the previous blog, we need to do our own work. If we suppress our grief, or any other pain, this will only lower our vibration. We need to feel it and be present to it.
Grief does not pass quickly like some emotions. Anger, for example, can be very intense, but once expressed it usually subsides quickly and is gone. Grief lingers. It smolders. It burns deep inside. It consumes us, especially where there is much around us that reminds us of what we had and perhaps didn’t appreciate when we had it.
The pain of loss will take as long as it takes. But if we apply the Radical Forgiveness philosophy to the situation, even while we are confronted by seemingly tragic events, we become able to separate the pain from the suffering. Let me explain the difference.
Pain is pain but suffering is optional. The suffering comes when we add to the sense of loss a whole bunch of negative and erroneous beliefs about death itself, how it occurred, who was to blame for it, why it happened the way it did, and so on. The suffering caused by these beliefs is often more intense than the loss itself.
When we give up all those assumptions and the need to make the death itself tragic and the focus of our pain, we are just left with the sensation of loss alone. We have coined the term Radical Grieving to describe that process.
So when we do the Radical Transformation worksheet on what is happening out there in the world, we are doing the same thing. We feel empathy and compassion for those caught up in the situation, but we choose to let go of all the other stuff that only makes it worse. None of it is true anyway.
With the Radical Transformation worksheet, we ensure that we inject into the situation only high vibration thoughts and wishes, as well as support and compassion for those in pain. By so doing, we create the kind of energy that will ensure a peaceful end to the situation causing it. That’s why we call it Radical Transformation.
This process is so important, I’m sharing a free webinar on the Radical Transformation worksheet on October 16th at 1:30 PM Eastern time. You can sign up by clicking here. Don’t worry if you can’t make it on that day, when you register you’ll ensure you receive a link to the recording which will be available for a few days after the event.
Also, when you register, you’ll get access to another free mini-class on Radical Grieving, plus the opportunity to save $37 on the Radical Grieving Online Program.
Please join me and learn how you can radically transform yourself and the world.
