I may not say this enough, but I am grateful for being brought up to have faith in my religion. Over the year that faith I have has been shaken, changed, and evolved into a personal relationship with God, one that I wouldn’t trade for anything else.
That being said, today, on what is a particularly charged day with the nation’s elections going on and the rest of the world watching, it’s important that you hang onto whatever faith you do hold, even if it’s not to a particular religious background or formalized set of ideals.
This day is going to bring out some of the worst in people. Let Smokey Quartz’s purifying energy come into your field and cleanse you of all that negativity and smog from your field. Imagine, if you will, a smoke bomb going off inside of you to shatter and break up all that debris and weight you’re bringing around with you. And with your next few breaths, imagine that all of that waste is now expelled out of you, leaving you cleansed and clear. You may find yourself wanting to do this visualization multiple times today – so be it. If that’s what it takes to help you today (and any day), then all the better.
And while that visualization can help you out internally in the immediate moment, it would still be helpful for you to look to where you find your spiritual strength. If you feel like you’ve been let down or hurt or abandoned by a particular religion in the past, maybe it’s time to let that story go and find healing. Remember what I spoke of yesterday, that there’s a different perspective to everything. See if you can find the positive in whatever you’re dealing with. And in the meantime, help others to find and experience the good in life. Such is the mission of Catholic Charities, which works to offer support to member agencies, provide disaster relief, and promote poverty-reduction through research and legislative reform.
Remember, not everything is wholly good or wholly bad. Whatever you’re looking at, find the good and focus on that. Build it, grow it, and share that good today and every day.
