Christal and special guests, Zen Rose Garden, discuss what happened in Las Vegas – What terrorism really is and how to navigate from traumatic events – What our reactions to these events say about us, and why it’s important we check our emotions.
Sunday night, my city was rocked. For the first time in my lifetime, an event happened in my hometown that makes us question everything.
Las Vegas is my love.
It’s a vibrant city. It’s a diverse city. It’s an inclusive city. We thrive off entertainment, culinary, and good times, but what people don’t normally see is the connectedness people feel here. We have a small town vibe in a big city.
It is filled with hard workers. People who come here to seek the opportunity to make a living out of serving people.
At the core of who we are is hospitality and I don’t just mean what we do, like, hotels and restaurants… I mean we are all about doing things differently. We will find every way to make peoples lives easier. As if you are a guest in our home, you will feel taken care of from the time you arrive til the time you leave.
This truly is the core value that translates in everything we do. In fact, Vegas is mostly responsible for the values I hold near and dear to my heart. Why relationships matter to me. Why finding ways to exceed expectations (care more than what’s expected) matters. Why finding ways to connect to people on deeper levels and meet them where they are MATTERS.
A lot of people may believe Vegas is incapable of being deep-rooted, but you’d be wrong to assume that. The most realist of REAL people I’ve ever met, have come from Vegas which brings me to why I want to shine a light on all my Las “Vegans.”
Sunday night (October 1st), a gunman released fire showering thousands of people at the Route 91 concert, killing (as of now) 59 and injuring 500+
WHAT THE FUCK?!
Not only is this something that NEVER happens in Las Vegas, but this also happens to be the biggest massacre in modern day history. With all that’s going on in the world right now, hurricanes, earthquakes, and “terrorism” is it even safe anymore?
If this could hit a city where people once felt safe and free does this mean our world is going to shit?
I have a lot to say about this as it has been something I’ve been wanting to address for a while, and thank goodness I had my friends from Zen Rose Garden helping me. As full-time healers and people who have worked with thousands of people who have been through the most traumatic events, I felt it was time to get clear about where the state of our world actually is, because the truth is, well… I’ll just save my truths for this podcast.
MAKE SURE YOU HIT PLAY!
Going back to my city though, I’d like to shine a light on the true hero’s that were at that concert that night.
People who stayed behind dragging people, being human shields, and for those out the next day donating blood and finding where people needed the most help. Beyond that, our service men (women) who flawlessly did what they can to protect their city. The Metropolitan Police Department worked diligently to secure our streets and handle the craziness that rocked us.
There’s so much love in this world and it showed by how people reacted in the face of danger.
I’d also like to say thank you to my TLC Community for all the messages of love and support you’ve sent us. It truly means the world to me. Together, we will do all we can to make sure we participate in the change we want to see.
I wish you light and love, forever and always.
