Japanese tragedy


I tried and tried to come up with a 'hot topic' for Monday, but everything seemed so petty when there is such an enormous thing happening in the world. So today, I figured I would just start a thread where anyone can talk about it. Send good thoughts, discuss the latest happening, or just to have a place to read what others are thinking.

I didn't listen to the news the first morning it was reported. My mom mentioned it to me and at the time, it was very unclear as to how bad it was. I was busy at work, so just kept plugging away. By lunch, everyone was talking about it. I had such a horrible feeling in my guts that I couldn't read anything still. Ignorance is bliss. emoticon

As the days have gone on, I STILL only listened to what others around me have been saying. I feel like throwing up every time I hear about it. Hubby FINALLY said I needed to know. He found a photo essay that he said was extremely moving and showed it to me. I nearly cried. Then I finally turned the radio on to hear the news. 80,000 expected dead was what I heard yesterday. I turned the radio back off. I feel somewhat ashamed that I can't even listen, half way across the world, to what so many millions of people are living through day by day right now. But I will eventually read a lot and see a lot of pictures - I know myself. I just need to let the shock wear off and the tragedy slow down a bit. It's hard to hear ever increasing numbers of casualties. emoticon

To everyone in Japan, and everyone else in the world, now is the time to work together and heal the hurt. Please. Why do we inflict pain on one another when the unpredictability of life can dole out enough to go around? Sending all the positive energy I'm still holding on to by avoiding the news story!!! emoticon

Re: Japanese tragedy


I made the mistake of watching too many videos. Someone in my chat linked to tsunami pics, and that was it.

I'm trying to stay away from that now. Instead, I'm sending rainbow light and strength to those reactors, so they can maintain integrity. It's much better than being freaked out by pictures and adding my pain and panic to the world energy.

Took a while for me to understand that and actually do it.

Here are hugs for all the people affected by this disaster.

Re: Japanese tragedy


I'm not following it on the [sign in to see URL]'s been so much going on in my own life, and me being an empath, I am getting my info in a round about way.

I did check out some interesting interactive photos that someone had posted on FaceBook. It showed aereal photos of parts of Japan before the tsunami, then you could push a bar from one side of the photo to the other, and watch as water overtook everything. It was astounding! Made my heart hurt!!
And now, with the reactor [sign in to see URL] heart truly goes out to everyone there. I am hoping that the reactors are able to hang on until the threat is gone. How terrifying it must be to live there, and for those who don't have a way out, or a place to go if they did have a way out!

Perhaps a way we all could help is to write down what we wish for Japan, take it outside in a pan or dish you can burn something in, then burn the [sign in to see URL] set the ashes afloat on the air [sign in to see URL] Universe will carry those wishes for [sign in to see URL] least we would feel that we're being proactive since none of us is able to go there to help. emoticon

Re: Japanese tragedy


Saijen, I love that idea. I'm still sending rainbow light to the reactors, hoping that somehow they'll manage to cool them down enough to be safe.

Re: Japanese tragedy


I am going to try to work on my wish tomorrow. I've had to get taxes out of the way, as well as a host of other things, it seems. I need to be able to fully focus on what I'm [sign in to see URL]'t need any screw-ups to make things worse.

Hopefully it won't be raining tomorrow so I can get outside to allow the ashes to float on the winds.

Another idea, if you're not comfortable with this one is to take a votive candle.. preferably a white one, and inscribe in the wax at the top, JAPAN, then words like peace, light, healing, [sign in to see URL] around the candle, then put it in something and let it burn till it burns itself out. Has the same purpose as setting ashes on the wind.

Re: Japanese tragedy


I just did a nice tapping meditation for Japan. We need to get our own emotions under control before we can help to heal others. I enjoyed it very much. Of course, it helps when you know where the tapping points are.

]Page with Audio - Tapping for Japan

I'll do something similar in tonight's tapping group. Spreading the good energy.

Re: Japanese tragedy


LOL Queeny.

While that is [sign in to see URL] a way it's kind of sad.
I guess I take for granted that my DH is OK with what I am doing, even though he himself would never follow, fully, the same path. He enjoys some of the rituals we used to do when we had open circle stuff, like for Ostera, Midsummer's Eve, Beltane and such.
I'm sorry that your DH isn't as accomodating. It makes following this path kind of hard, especially in such close quarters. Hopefully he will open his mind's eyes and at least realize that this is a healthy path to follow and will be a less reluctant for you to do things like burning a candle for Japan.
