Many people have emailed asking me for my thoughts about the Connecticut shootings.
People who have guns have a responsibility to keep them locked up, especially if they have someone else living in the house. It doesn’t matter if you’re four years old like the little boy who accidentally shot his little brother last month in Minneapolis, or the teen-ager who took his mom’s guns in Connecticut and went on a shooting spree. We can’t wait for the government to deal with their political crap and create gun control.
This is a major wake up call for everyone who owns a gun to be smart about it. Don’t assume your kids know better. They see violence on tv all the time, so to them it’s a normal part of life. You get angry, you shoot someone. You kill someone.
Someone asked me today if this is how our world is going to be from now on. Our world has been like this for a long, long time. Life is waking us up right now, asking us to make changes. Asking us what kind of world we want to live in. As I wrote in a blog on Sunday, there is some pretty heavy duty energy out there right now and it’s there to shock us and get our attention.
We can’t control people, no matter how much we try. What we can do is listen to our inner voice for guidance on a daily basis and check in with it when we’re headed out somewhere. We can be safe. It will let us know if we are in danger. People have told me they feel immobilized with fear since this shooting and I’m sorry to hear that but we do not have to be victims to people’s mental health issues. WE HAVE DIVINE GUIDANCE WITHIN US that is there to ALWAYS GUIDE US. A few years ago I was going to the boat show with my former boyfriend and that whole morning I had a gut feeling of kind of a creepy feeling about the show. I asked my inner voice several times if I shouldn’t go and I got that it was okay to go BUT something was going to happen that wasn’t good. I weighed letting my boyfriend down and not going or going to find out what this feeling was. If I would have gotten a clear NO I would not have gone, but this one was a wavering feeling, so I went. Half way through the show, I stepped onto a very slippery step on one of the boats and broke my foot in two places. I was on crutches for two months in winter time. It was a major drag.
Why didn’t my intuition tell me a big fat NO? I learned a lot from the experience that I wouldn’t have learned otherwise, so looking back I’m grateful for the experience.
We are not victims to this world we live in but we have to listen to our inner voice on a daily basis.
If you don’t know how to do this, get a copy of my book called A Still Small Voice and read it several times. It is a great little book on living by your intuition. We all have it. Men, women, children and our pets. We all have inner divine guidance.
Life on this planet will continue to give us experiences to learn from. And they are usually not easy but our souls chose to come here anyway. I can guarantee you if you are still here right now as we make this energy shift, you are stronger than you think. Don’t let fear lock you up. Tune in and get connected to that divine voice within.
