Soothing the Angry Heart in Post-Trump "Democracy"!

© Copyright by Sheryl Karas


A bold move for Mama Love—I'm saying something political AGAIN. How can I not? Since Donald Trump has been elected, sales of my "Restful Sleep" formula in New York have gone through the roof! I'm not kidding. The "City that Never Sleeps" is definitely not sleeping now!

And I'm getting questions like: "I can't seem to let this go! What flower essence formula from your list should I use for that?"

Well, I recently told one person that some things aren't meant to be let go of that easily. If you jump over your feelings they're going to come back to trip you up when you least expect it. Best to acknowledge the feelings, acknowledge how hard it's been, how upsetting it still feels—to GRIEVE it (because grief, loss and pain are always behind anger)—and that will help you "let it go."

Of course, who am I kidding? How do you "let go" of something currently happening in the present?

Well, Buddhists would say "daily practice" and that's the truth. A daily practice—a several times a day practice if you're me—of coming back to center and getting grounded is probably advisable. Is the sky falling in the present moment, this very second? No? Good! Stick with that. In this particular second he hasn't received the nuclear launch codes and, hey, maybe there's still time to add a childproof lock! (Forgive me, conservatives, for I have sinned, committed the great blasphemy of criticizing emperor Trump! Go ahead, boycott me, I don't care.) But back to focus. In THIS present moment the jack boots aren't on my apartment's front porch yet. In THIS PRESENT MOMENT I can take a deep breath and let it go. Try it—it helps!

And try my Soothing the Angry Heart flower essence formula or flower essence aromatherapy blend for topical use as well. It features Holly flower essence—the most supreme heart soother in the Bach Flower Remedy repertoire. It's powerful and might do you a lot of good.

And, oh yeah, I almost forgot. My Election Stress Special—30% off my MOST popular stress-reducing formulas in a boxed set (Restful Sleep, Releasing Worry and Fear, and Support for Troubled Times)— is still available in my Etsy shop.
