The murder of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and others as well as the ongoing protests at centuries of racial injustice have galvanized many to speak truth more forcefully in their daily lives. One of those people is my friend J Nycole Ralph.
As J Nycole was processing her own emotions, she realized that she was being more impacted by the death of another black American AND she wasn’t standing up in as powerful a way she wanted to.
To that end, she created a process called The CREATE Method. It stands for
- C – Claim that you feel something
- R – Recognize the feeling
- E – Embrace the feeling
- A – Address the feeling
- T – Take action
- E – Educate and Engage
In today’s podcast, J Nycole walks me through these six steps. As someone who has helped people process their emotions for over a decade, I learned a number of new ideas in this conversation. It is well worth your time.
Listen to this. Take notes. Implement the ideas as you are working on and tapping for your issues and struggles. This is timely for this moment, but it is a tool you can use always.
