Free Advice from Intuitive Life Coach, Anandra George
This isn't an answer to an actual Q&A from about.com, but many of my students and clients in Japan are asking me:
What is the best way to BE during this crisis? What should I do?
I'm in Tokyo right now, during what they're calling the worst disaster in Japan since WWII... earthquakes too numerous to count at this point, a devastating tsunami to the north, nuclear reactors melting down nearby. Like millions of others, I'm going about my daily affairs, eating blueberries and yogurt on the 38th floor while the building is gently swaying like a tree during a 6.9 aftershock, and waiting as the news seems to get worse by the hour.
There's a sense of tempered fear in the air, on the subways and in the shopping courts, but I'm shocked and amazed to say that it's conspicuously absent in me as far as I can tell. I feel a sense of vividness when the buildings start to quake, and a deep presence to the moment. The events unfolding are all so clearly out of my control, yet my attitude and inner space are, as always, 100% my responsibility.
I am aware that my sense of peace could be tenuous, and I don't want to make myself out to be a spiritual superhero. But I've been asked to identify some of the factors that are within my control in hopes that it might serve as an inner preparation/response for disaster" checklist for others.

Note: The most beautiful thing about being here during this crisis, is that the Japanese people are so amazingly kind and polite, not to mention totally efficient and capable. I have not witnessed anything but excellence. My heartfelt "Arigato Gozaimashita" to Japan, which I love more every time I come. Thank you for being exactly how you are.
