Stillness can help guide you to that all knowing peace and strength within to counteract the effects of bullying....

Katie, just months before was a quiet child going through the challenges of losing her father to cancer. As she began doing the practices of The Simplicity of Stillness, she discovered an inner strength and the courage to stand up to the bullying she witnessed one day at her school.

. . . A young girl was brought to me a year ago whose mother was concerned with her behavior in school. Katie was very angry, and it was showing up in her grades, in her reticence to befriend others and in her sullen attitude that was affecting everything in her life. Katie had good reason to be mad, her Dad had recently died from cancer, leaving her without her best friend and she didn't feel the world had given her a fair shake.

I taught her a method of connecting to the source of her power, where she could access better answers, Stillness. When she opened her eyes after the brief session, the first thing she said, was, "Oh... I know how I can use this."

Katie told me that often kids laughed at things that weren't nice, and she didn't want to join them, but it was hard. She said that she knew now, that she could begin to breathe into the Stillness and it would help her not to join in the laughter.

I didn't realize at the time that she was speaking about the bullying that was happening at her school. I gave her a Stillness Session CD so she could continue to practice reaching that core of strength and love that exists at her core and wished her well.

Six months later I got a call from her mom, there had been an incident at Katie's school of bullying and Katie had not only befriended the student being bullied, she also stood by her side, declaring it had to stop. SEE VIDEO to hear what happened in Katie's own words.

This time, everyone listened. The boy was suspended and the school called a special meeting with all the parents to discuss this issue. Katie's mom told me that the parents of the bully were also shocked, they were not at all aware that their son could or would perpetrate such an atrocity. There were as concerned as all the other parents.

When we connect to the core essence of our true nature, we find it impossible to defame another; we discover greater compassion and a silent strength that we have to stand up for those who haven't learned to do it for themselves.

Katie tells me that she searches out the kids who are being bullied or are quietly hiding their pain of not fitting in now, and she tries to help them discover their own strengths and value. She does the practice of Stillness, and going within, several times a week, even at school just though breathing through the tough situations until she feels reconnected to her own guidance and knowing.

Yes, it's simple and yes it worked for one person who then made a big difference in the lives of many. Can it work for others? Why don't we let the kids tell us, teach them this simple method, and let them teach us how truly simple it is - to value and respect each other. .
