I kept asking my spiritual team for direction----I clearly wasn’t “getting-it.”
By the end of the day----I just crossed my eyes (part of my BOOM technique) and calmly stood there until they stopped---for a good 5 minutes there was complete silence and they all just watched me. Literally, I finally met each student with a loving-peaceful look. No one moved for a solid 5 minutes. Then I said thank you and "got it"---a part of me was feeling punished for “something” otherwise why were they so unruly, and another part of me had been trying to control them.
I am not being punished for anything and I can't control anyone----I can only control my reaction.
The class of 8th graders experienced a 5 minute meditation for the first time in their lives and I got to hold the space for them to do it
Will you choose to see people’s fears and hurts and just detached and open your heart today----and give other’s the opportunity to slid into silence and peace today?
