Friday, January 20 is the inauguration of the next president of the United States. It is not one being welcomed by all of the Americans in the United States, let alone, the world. The negative energy is amazingly thick as a result. In order for us to help not tap our spirits by allowing all that darkness we feel to infiltrate us, there are a few things we can do personally. Solidarity starts with spirit. Perhaps these suggestions will help.
1 — As someone who works with the colors of the spectrum to bring common sense, positive energy, and understanding to people, I am suggesting that the colors we embrace, focus on, or use for Friday, be black and blue. Black and blue will help promote boundaries of protection around the words or intentions we communicate. They will help create a positive, calm resolution to what we need to convey.
2 — Fact check. We’re hear this expression bandied about, but do you really fact check? We rely on news services rather than to check the verification of the information being transmitted to us. A lot of that has been false, which contributed to a lot of misunderstanding.
3 — Plan your travels on this day so that getting to and from your destination is hassle-free. Nothing will make things worse and tap your spirit, then if you are rushing while feeling the collective emotions of this day. That becomes cause for anxiety, and anxiety brings on irrationality, which in turn can promote stress and leads to violence.
So no matter who you voted for, go within your spirit and use color and energy. And remember that Black and Blue will help you find the means to address issues in a collectively peaceful way.
