During difficult times…

During a difficult experience give yourself a chance to feel SAFE.
S = Soften into what you’re feeling. Breathing in, open to it. Breathing out, soften around it.
A = Allow the feeling to be as it is, without resisting or clinging to it.
F = Feel into the emotion with kind attention. Ask yourself, what do I need right now? If you know what you need, do it. If you need to meditate on something positive, say to yourself, I am surrounded by love, I am held in love.
E = Expand awareness to all the people around the world who are feeling the same way right now.
Sadness? Worry? Fearful? Breathe in, breathe out saying May we all know that we are loved.
