I would guess that most of us were pretty happy to say goodbye to 2020. However, given how 2021 started, right now it’s hard not to wonder whether this year will really be that much better, which is why it’s more important than ever to hone our coping skills and learn new ones.

Whenever I get bogged down in the energy of worry and fear, which unfortunately happens on an almost daily basis in this challenging year, I remind myself that I can choose to shift my energy – but it’s not an easy task these days.

Sometimes, just looking at Allegra sleep in a sun puddle will shift my energy to a better place, but sometimes, I need a little more than that. A recent meditation created by Katie Krimitsos of the Women’s Meditation Network has helped me tremendously. It’s only 10 minutes long, so you can listen to it at just about any point in your day when you feel the need to shift your energy. Click here to access the Choose More Love Meditation.

I encourage you to check out all of the meditations offered on Katie’s website. They’ve been sanity savers for me these last few months.

What helps you shift your energy from fear to love?
