Love is Love: Meditation Flash Mob

It’s been raining lately.

Yes, I know, we need it here in LA. But that’s not what I’m referring to. (side note: I LOVE when it rains in LA).

What I mean is, there have been clouds and clouds of rain passing through. One after the other. Shit storm after shit storm.

I’m trying really hard not to get political here, because I understand both sides of the spectrum feel very passionate about their point of view, and I have both of these kinds of people in my life. Which I’m fortunate for. If I always surrounded myself with people who shared my same point of view, how would I learn? How would I grow? More importantly, how would I form my own opinion if I only ever sought out one side?

Anyways, I don’t want to add more to the storm here, so I’m stopping political talk right there.

My point is, it’s been (edit) POURING negativity.

And it doesn’t matter what side of the spectrum you are on, I think we can all agree on this one point. So. Much. Negativity.

It’s starting to wear on me. It’s draining everyone around me. It’s all over social media with people openly arguing. Certain media sources are totally eating it up and using dramatic headlines so they can get more clicks. It’s in almost every conversation I’ve had over the last month. It’s really good to talk, I understand this. But that negativity is bleeding into normal conversations. Normal, everyday tasks. I’m getting pretty bummed, and so is everyone around me.

Maybe this is the world power’s way of lowering our collective societal vibration to keep us in check. More on that another time.

This past Sunday February 7, a few hundred people and I found a break from this negativity in the form of a Meditation Flash Mob on the Manhattan Beach Pier put on by YogaLoft and Suzy Nece. We meditated. We bathed in sound offerings by David Romero. We sang. We “om-ed”. We made signs. We painted flowers on one another. We offered flowers to the ocean. I wore a bindi.

And for an hour and a half, I found solace

We need more collective, positive gatherings like this during this really weird, crazy, scary, [insert however you are feeling here], times. Here are a few suggestions for doing so:

  1. Meditate.

  2. Have a meeting with a few friends and decide ahead of time that no negative banter will be aloud during your time together.

  3. Put on the happiest song you can find, and dance your heart out for the length of it. Repeat.

  4. Read something other than the news or your news feeds once a day.

  5. Limit sugar and caffeine, or anything that may throw fuel on the anxiety fire.

  6. Talk or write about how you are feeling, but follow it up with 10 minutes of self-care (self-massage, a cup of tea, a walk outside, petting a dog, etc.)

  7. Reach out to me, I’ll find a way to make you laugh.

My goal for you this week is to do something that incites positivity. Leave a comment and let me know what that is.
