    I do my best to get quiet and find that space inside of me that I can connect to…this is difficult for me because I can’t do it if my husband is talking, or the dog wants attention., in other words, if there is a big distraction I have to wait….. I try though. It is not easy. Once I can find a quiet place and connect to that space, I let myself feel the uncertainty. I find this helps me. Ignoring it does not. Then I bring that uncertainty into that space and let myself feel it, no matter how big it is. After awhile, it dissipates and is manageable. I remember that I am not the only one feeling this, that I am not alone. So then I breathe in that uncertainty, and I breathe it out. And after a bit, I breathe in and out understanding, wisdom or whatever is appropriate, and visualize all the people in the world that are feeling the same as I am. And I send out understanding and wisdom to them as well.
    It doesn’t matter what it is…realizing I am not the only one having this same uncertainty in my life helps me. I end with a lovingkindness meditation for myself, and then all beings everywhere who are in this same situation. It takes about 10 minutes, depending on how anxious I am, but it seems to work if I can get the time to do it.

      Mary Pat, I get up in the morning before anyone else in the house to get that precious quiet time. I will try your practice next time, thank you

        Me too. I make sure I get some time before anyone else, even the dog, gets up. And sometimes, when I wake up in the middle of the night, the practice can be very helpful. But during the daytime, it can be difficult for me to find that time. if I need it. Somehow, it eventually all works out….may you be held by love, in love, and with love.

    So many, like meditation and morning practice to anchor some certainty. But I’ll pick one odd one that helps me with all the ruminations that go with uncertainty that usually spiral into the apocalyptic. I’ll walk in a room and say to myself a number of times “I cannot walk on this floor”. Clearly I am able, but I’m saying I’m not. So there’s a distancing of brain thoughts and it helps me separate from believing everything my brain spews out.

        Good, Butterfly. Daft as it may sound it’s part of a toolkit in a psychological framework called Acceptance Commitment Therapy.

    By reflecting on how insignificant the situations, anxiety, and stress will be a year from now. My history tells me this is so and will be so.

    Remembering past uncertainties and my ability to live with them and live through them.

    Knowing that only the present moment is inevitable. The next is a possibility and the previous is only a memory.

    Any practice that gets more oxygen into the body like exercise. Talking with others always helps.

    Uncertainty is usually caused from past regrets or future anxiety so my go to remedy for uncertainty is to use tools to become more present and connected to the now ie meditation, yoga, qigong…simple mindful breathing is the trick.

    Just stopping and looking and listening for the unexpected gift that may be right there in front of me. Breathing. Opening. As I pondered the answer to this question just now, I’m sitting on the deck outside and a male purple finch landed 6 feet from me on the top of the shepherd’s hook holding the bird feeder – and opened his beak and sang. He paused and sang again, twice more. Oh beautiful bird, thank you. Oh God, thank you for these lovely creations of your hand. You steady me through your presence.

        It takes practice just like everything else. Keep letting go over and over again.
