As a purpose-driven, multi-talented person witnesssing civil unrest around race issues over the past several days, you are likely asking: how can I help? This blog is designed to help you answer that question.
Anytime you have a question you don't know the answer to, a powerful practice to gain clarity is to offer a prayer for guidance. A prayer for guidance is a request to your soul and your higher power for support. This opens the old adage: "ask and you shall receive."
In a prayer for guidance, you are doing 6 important things:
1. aligning yourself with your desires,
2. asking for what you need,
3. releasing fear,
4. opening yourself to receive guidance,
5. surrendering control to how the answers come to you, and
6. giving thanks.
To support you in opening up your inner-activist, I've pre-recorded a prayer. In this prayer, you ask your soul and your higher power for guidance. You seek clarity to recognize how you can contribute to peace through your unique genius. You surrender any and all fear that would hold you back from full expression. And, you open your heart, mind, and intuition to recognize internal wisdom and external events intended to open your pathway to activism.

As the police officer was getting surrounded by the crowd of protestors. Many of them were yelling at the cop degrading him. The individual hugging the police officer came out of the crowd, they exchanged a few words (I couldn’t hear), and they embraced. As the officer walked away he exclaimed, “I hate what happened just as much as you guys do!”
