In light of the recent tragedy in Boston and similar events throughout the world, it’s obvious that only so much can be done to protect people, so what can you and I do to keep out of harms way? In particular, what can we do to ensure our safety at public events?
Let’s face it, all the security in the world will not stop some out-of-control nut-case from trying to inflict their particular brand of insanity on innocent people.
Government agencies and Law Enforcement are doing their best, and I applaud them for it, but no amount of security can guarantee our safety in a world where a radicals who commit acts of terror exist.
So what can we, as individuals, do to protect ourselves and our families? How can we still enjoy going to public events without being afraid?
For starters, learn to pay attention to your own “internal guidance.”
Throughout my life I have always had the ability to sense trouble before it happened. It may have been developed as a defense mechanism, to survive the rowdy places I played in with my band and, later, frequented during my dark years. I’ve also been told that accomplished martial artists have learned to develop this “sixth sense.”
I do know that it’s something that’s in all of us and, as we learn to pay attention to those uncomfortable feelings we get in a situation and act on our intuition, we can avoid many potential dangers.
Utilize the power of prayer
I also know we can ask for, and receive, help from the Heavens but we need to ask. “Ask and you shall receive.” Matthew 7:7
One of the practices I use is, before I leave home, I say a little prayer and ask for and visualize a protective shield of Divine light to be placed around, me, my family, our home, and cars and to protect me wherever my travels take me.
It’s a matter of raising my attention toward a higher plane so that I am vibrationally and energetically in a higher, more positive, state.
I believe this explains why some people manage to survive horrible tragedies unscathed, while others are not so fortunate. If I am to take responsibility for my life and everything in it, and I do, then I must accept the fact that there are no accidents.
If you follow the principles of the law of attraction and other Universal laws, you’ll realize that you cannot attract into your experience anything you are not a vibrational match to.
Following this line of thought, it also reasons that, if you are in a high, positive vibrational state, you will not attract negative experiences.
This is one of the reasons I avoid the news as much as possible. I get my news online so I can choose what I see and pay attention to. I don’t need to be brainwashed with horrid images of people being killed, played back over and over by a news media interested in little more than ratings.
Following the events of September 11th, we were subjected to constant video of planes crashing into buildings. The result? School children were hiding under their desks in fear.
Note to news media: You need to hold yourself to a higher standard.
Something else I’ve always done and something that has kept me safe in some dangerous situations is, I trust my instincts. As I said above, we have an internal guidance system that alerts us of danger.
It’s that uncomfortable feeling you get in the pit of your stomach, just below your rib cage. Many people refer to it as their “gut instinct” or “gut feeling.”
According to the Chakras, the subtle energy centers in our body as taught in Hinduism and Buddhism, that region located just below the rib cage is the 3rd Chakra, is the center of our emotions and associated with the color yellow.
If you talk with people who have been mugged, you will hear how they felt something was wrong but for whatever reason, did not heed their internal message. Instead they remained in a dangerous situation.
For example, if you’re in an elevator and someone gets in who causes you to feel uncomfortable, for whatever reason, get out! Never remain in a situation that feels wrong or dangerous.
Trusting your emotional guidance, which by the way, operates thousands of times faster than your intellect, can warn you of impending danger ahead of time.
Teach your children
Teaching your children to trust their instincts is one of the best things you can do to help keep them safe. Young children in particular are already in touch with their feelings and know when something’s not right. You just need to teach them to honor that feeling and act accordingly.
Can I guarantee nothing bad will ever happen to you? Of course not but I know from my own experience that paying attention to our intuitive messages, staying positive in any situation, and saying a prayer for protection from above will help.
I can’t prevent the next tragedy from happening but I can keep my own energy and personal vibration high and pay attention to my emotional guidance. When I sense that there’s eminent danger I follow my instincts.
I pray that you consider adopting these and similar ideas for yourself and your loved ones and may God keep you safe.
One day human beings will learn to live in peace but until that day arrives, protecting your safety and that of your family is your own affair.
