How does one handle the news that 26 people were shot in an elementary school, 20 of whom were small children? Managing our feelings in situations like this can be confusing and overwhelming. How do we find any power when weíre powerless? How do we go on with our day-to-day lives when such a tragedy is unfolding so close to home? How do we act normally without fear of going to the movies or the mall or dropping off our kids at school?
There is no right or wrong way to feel when it comes to tragedy. But there are tools that can greatly guide you through your emotions and help you find power in a powerless situation. Iíve outlined three steps for you to begin practicing now. Itís important that our nation come together and open up to new ways of heightening our consciousness. If youíre feeling overwhelmed and deeply emotional about the shooting in Newtown, begin using the tools in this video immediately.
