“Preparing for Life’s Hurricanes: Staying Calm in the Midst of Chaos” was originally published at RYVT.
Staying calm in the midst of chaos is the most advantageous move you can make.
You may or may not know that I live in Palm Bay, Florida. It’s a coastal town that borders the Atlantic ocean. As a result, I have a bit of experience in preparing for life’s hurricanes (quite literally!).
And each time a hurricane rolls into town, I become even more aware of energy exchange and the importance of staying calm.
Ultimately, how we react to situations translates into our reality. Freaking out causes more accidents, stressors and problems. Staying calm allows us to prepare mindfully and deliberately without distraction.
As a Law of Attraction coach and someone who is pretty “mellow” most of the time, even I can get swept up in the chaos if I’m not focused on keeping myself balanced. The preparation for Hurricane Irma has been a reminder of this to me this week.
Driving around my town the past couple of days I’ve seen quite a few car accidents and people running into other problems and conflicts. My thoughts? Stress from the hurricane (which isn’t here yet) is leading some people into real-time problems and dangers in the present moment.
So today, I’d like to share some things I’ve come to learn about dealing with collective fear and panic. Should you ever find yourself in the path of potential danger, I hope these lessons I’ve learned will be helpful to you.
Lesson 1: Know the difference between YOUR fear and THEIR fear
Many of us are highly intuitive and empathic. This is a gift, as it helps us understand each other quite well!
However, in the face of a “threat,” you will often come to notice that your fear meter can get triggered to a higher-than-usual level, simply by being around groups of fearful people.
For example, in preparing for a hurricane you may find yourself at the grocery story picking up supplies like water and bread.
