The world is grieving so deeply right now, from the loss of our independence, from the loss of loved ones, the loss of businesses and jobs and money and relationships!
There’s not a corner of the world that isn’t in grief of some type due to the stress, anxiety of the pandemic, the vaccine situation, and of course in our country the insanity of our political system.
So we are grieving, individually and collectively.
It can easily be seen in the huge upswing in addictions that I have seen in the past 14 months, like I’ve never seen at any other time of my 42 years as a counselor, number one best selling author and more.
The world is grieving, as we see the number of separations, divorces and Relationship break ups happening on a daily basis.
The world is grieving, as we see people that we used to call friends, now enemies, because we have a difference of opinion regarding what is happening all over the world.
The world is grieving, as people take sides and argue over anything and everything that pops up in the news today.
So we know this truth: the world is grieving.
And you can’t stop energy, grieving, sadness, depression, anger, rage are all examples of energy… And no matter how much you want to stop them from influencing you or I, there is no way to do that.
You can’t block energy, one of the reasons is because we can’t see it!
The negativity of your neighbor, coworker, family member, friend, lover seeps into your subconscious and before you know it you start to shift your attitude and you see it going in a downward spiral.
So if we can’t block this energy what can we do to stop the grieving in this world?
Number one. Take care of yourself. If you take care of yourself mentally, physically, spiritually, financially and in your relationships you will become a role model for people around you, you don’t have to buy into the dysfunction, if you choose you can be the calm one in your social circle and hopefully others will begin to follow your steps.
Number two.I have been saying this for the past year and a half, get the hell off of the news!
The news is based on sensationalism, how new stations make money is by selling advertising, the more they stir the pot the more the news media offers interviews filled with anger, blaming, judging and projection, the more successful they are and the more people will start or continue watching the insanity on TV.
Knock it off. It’s not needed. You won’t die if you don’t watch the damn news but you might start to have a happier life and end the grieving that you’re going through even if you don’t know it.
Number three. limit your social media interactions to positive information only. Stop arguing about the vaccine or the pandemic or whatever other insane topics are all over social media these days.
When you limit your time on social media and you choose to not read the nonsense that is there every day, you will start to heal your own mind, body and spirit.
Once again, you might just be the role model that other people need to see.
Number four. Disengage from all conversations where someone is trying to convince you you are wrong and they are right.
I had a session with a client from out west yesterday and she was starting to feel quite depressed, more anxious than she even felt six months ago, and when we talked about the reasons why she admitted after my series of questioning that she continues to get into disagreements with friends and coworkers over the various topics that are causing the grief sadness depression and anxiety in the first place!
So I taught her the skill of “disengagement“, which is really simple to learn. If someone’s making a comment about the vaccine, simply don’t respond.
If someone is making a comment about the pandemic, simply don’t respond.
If someone is making a nasty comment about politics or specific politician, disengage, simply don’t respond.
You have the emotional power if you choose to use it, to get the hell out of this blame game that the world is in and start to live a more grounded existence.
if we do the above simple steps automatically our life is going to start to improve!
And then what next?
Exercise. Eat clean. Meditate daily. Get outside in the sun for at least 20 minutes every day. Only watch uplifting shows on television or anywhere on the Internet.
Be kind .
Be the best you ever, and we can slowly start to dissipate this world grieving that everyone is going through.
And yes, even only just you can make a difference!

On June 1, 2020, I cut out all news, all media, and anything on social media that wasn’t puppy dog towels or mountain photos.
And I’m dead serious!
Since then my world has been totally different. Since that time I’ve never entered a discussion about the vaccine or the pandemic or politics or anything else… I just let people go and have their opinions and I don’t need to respond to anyone.
Am I sticking my head in the sand?
Discussing all these topics, and thinking you’re going to change someone’s mind is the definition of insanity.
