My heart is broken with the news of another senseless school shooting which took place in Uvalde, Texas and this one is close to home. I have so much sorrow for the people of this quaint community and can not even image the despair family and friends are experiencing with the loss of such precious loved ones.
I normally do not speak publicly about politics, but I have to ask the question “When is enough enough?” As a citizen of Texas, I am baffled that our government can take away women’s rights in the name of protecting unborn children, but in the same breath put into effect a law that permits ANYONE to purchase an assault gun endangering every man, woman and child in the state. When are we going to wake up and realize that school shootings or any mass shooting for that matter IS NOT NORMAL!!! This is not acceptable!
A while ago, I was talking to a sales prospect of mine who was a big hunter. He told me he grew up in a hunting family and using guns was commonplace for him. He reflected back on when his grandpa taught him how to shoot. His grandpa told him “Handguns and assault rifles are for shooting people, shotguns are for hunting animals. We are not in the business of shooting people, so a shotgun is the only weapon to keep in your home.”
I have to say I know nothing about guns, but this makes a lot of sense to me. Why do we allow the sale of these people killers? Why can’t our government make decisions based on the greater good of the whole? Why do our children have to attend school and in addition to fire drills participate in active shooter drills? This is NOT NORMAL! Please think about the safety of ALL of our citizens before you vote…
Whenever there is a tragedy (and there seems to be one happening weekly nowadays) I always feel helpless. My heart goes out to the people who are effected and I desperately want to do something to help them.
Although I may not be able to physically be there to comfort those who are suffering, I can engage in a breathing practice that can assist in taking away some of their pain. Please join me in this week’s yoga video, where I share the concept of Taking and Giving Breathwork.
This week’s 7 minute breathwork session, Yoga for Sending Healing Energy, is all about supporting an individual or group from a far. When a communal tragedy or personal loss strikes, we often feel helpless. The Taking and Giving Breath allows you to take away the pain and suffering of an individual or group and send them healing energy and blessings. Yoga with Meditation Mutha is for everyBODY. Please join me in this opportunity to heal from a distance.
