In the eye

I'm sitting in lotus in the middle of my living room. Hurricane Irma is headed our way and I sit in meditation. Meanwhile, there's a flurry of related activity around me.

My son still sleeps. My husband is out buying supplies. The streets are heavy with drivers. People are shopping for water, batteries and other goods, protecting property, and taking care of important details. Others are posting concerns, real and fake news, criticism, prayers, and statements of caution on social media. After cleaning, storing, buying, and preparing, I have now tuned out most of it. We have prepared for the storm, but there's no guarantee we are ready. We will not know until the storm hits, yet there's nothing else to do. There is uncertainty.

I don't know what the outer bands of the storm will bring. All I know, as I sit here, is that I don't know. We don't know. Such is life. Uncertainty is real. All we can do is prepare and let go. While we wait, it behooves us to remain calm, to power up with a connection to our Higher Selves, to breathe in order to center ourselves, to call on clarity, to be aware, to be mindful, and to let go.

Today is a good day to take a few moments and sit in meditation. This will help us become calm and clear headed, able to think clearly, keep our thoughts organized and take action when needed, to know what to do and when to do it. We will not anticipate. We wait in uncertainty:

Sit comfortably. Close your eyes.
Visualize yourself in the eye of the storm, where it is calm.
Breathe slowly and deeply.
You are calm. You breathe. You recharge.
Breathe away the stress.
Breathe in faith.
Breathe out the need to control.
Breath in hope.
Breathe out anxiety.
Breath in love.
Breathe out fear.

Repeat. Breathe for a few more minutes. Stay in the eye. Become it. Be calm.

To all of us who are in the path of Hurricane Irma, we send love and light. Blessed be.
