Helping the World

The World Needs Our Gentle Touch – Part 3/3

2022-07-21T23:11:04+00:00

In Parts 1 and 2 I discussed why individuals need a gentle touch. We all come from a society that encouraged judgement, criticism, competition - and many other types of disempowering attitudes that caused us to contract from the love that we are at our core. Conflicts from what we experienced or witnessed in our life along with this disconnect from the love of our true self, we are all dealing with our emotional worlds as best as we can. This often plays out as dysfunctions and unloving attitudes and behaviors. This understanding helps us be kinder, gentler, and more compassionate with people who hurt us or act badly. 💜💜💜💜💜 In this part 3, I discuss how Gaia, our planet, has not only been injured by the physical abuses we have put upon her; she has also been negatively affected by the emotional abuses we have put upon her. Gaia is a living, breathing organism. To help her hear, she too needs our gentleness. The Indigenous peoples know this. And just like with each other and with the animals who walk the earth, we have abused her, and so we need help her heal.     Read  Part 1    Read  Part 2 Our Home; Mother Earth In past times, we held a reciprocal relationship with Gaia. She gave to us through her bounty. We took and shared  her gifts – with gratitude, and we looked after her. The Indigenous peoples still adhere to this concept of reciprocity, and still believe in the premise of “enough.” Our planet has suffered physically through industrialization and our greed. We have been inconsiderate of her air, water, land, forests, and resources. We are now seeing the repercussions of many of the decisions made decades ago. Some of these we made unaware of the long-term consequences; others, we knew there would be consequences and either ignored or buried the research. We have gotten used to the many luxuries that we now consider our right – many of them attained at her expense. We have gone beyond the concept of “enough.” 💜💜💜💜💜 All my Writing is based on my published and upcoming books: Cover Images Below About My  Books I also offer a variety of   Writing Services 💜💜💜💜💜 Our planet has also suffered from the emotional abuses we have put upon her. All the unfairness, judgments, prejudices, hate, injustices, and cruelty we have directed towards each other, groups of people, like through genocides and wars, or even towards the animals have affected her. Because she is a living, breathing organism and it all happened within her boundaries, she too has suffered when those living upon her suffered. Gaia, Mother Earth, our beautiful planet has had to shrug off all of these physical and emotional abuses. And even though she is still in an evolutionary stage and some upheavals are normal, many of the recent turbulent weather patterns are because of her releasing this negative energy we have put upon her. She too requires our gentleness to help her [...]

The World Needs Our Gentle Touch – Part 2/3

2022-06-24T20:40:52+00:00

In Part 1, I discussed how we all emerged from love, and at our core we are all still connected to that love, but that many of us need a rekindling of the love that is inherent within all of us. Read Part 1  This is why we need to be gentle with each other - and why the world needs our gentle touch - especially these days as our world and lives have been disrupted to a degree we were not prepared for, and that has stressed us and changed our lives so completely. (This is an article/post I wrote a couple of years ago and repost from time to time - tweaked to reflect the world's current situations). Because of what we inherited from Humanity’s history, most of us have, or have had, a weak connection to our True Self – to the love we all hold within our hearts, and therefore have been unable to experience the full benefit of this connection – or to express it fully out into the world. We have all come from the same history of what Humanity perpetuated, but were unaware we were carrying forward baggage that created attitudes and behaviors that either hurt our self or others. Most of us have experienced hurts, pains, or unwelcome repercussions or circumstances – either from generational or cultural influences, our own bad choices, or at the hands of others. And because of this, many of us have been the perpetrators and hurt others. So, we need to forgive ourselves for what we have done, or not done – to ourselves and to others. Being Generous; Offering Gentleness; Extending Love And we need to be generous to each other and extend true and authentic forgiveness to those who have acted badly towards us, others, or the world. We need to offer the gentle hand of reconciliation – an olive branch – whenever possible. Being the recipient of a gentle gesture can open our hearts so that we too can forgive. When we are offered gentleness, it helps us to heal the wounds of hurts or unwanted circumstance that caused us to be disconnected to the love within. The more we offer gentleness and other qualities of love to others, the faster we will all be able to reconnect to the love within and embrace its benefits for ourselves. The more of us who extend love out into the world, the faster we will be able to create the world we all want. As well as offering gentleness to people, we also have to offer it to the animals on our planet. 💜💜💜💜💜 All my Writing is based on my books: Cover Images Below About My Published and Upcoming Books I also offer a variety of   Writing Services 💜💜💜💜💜 The Animals Who Share the Planet With Us Animals share the planet with us to help us, to feed us, to offer us love, and help us grow spiritually. But just like with us, many have [...]

I Want to Live in a World That …

2021-08-19T17:48:45+00:00

Focusing our energies on what we want – not what we don't want or on what is wrong – creates the energy vortex for what we want to come about. And our focus must be positive and uplifting. This article is from a few years ago that I post from time to time; I have tweaked it a bit to address what we as individuals and the world are now going through. There is so much love, support, community banding together, and hundreds of ways we are all supporting each other – physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually going around. And we MUST keep it up. At this difficult time, it is even MORE important than ever to focus on what we want – in our lives and in the world – so that we come out of this as unscathed as possible and the world a much, much better, fairer, more compassionate, and egalitarian place. At the end of this post are a few links to aids that have recently crossed my path to help us navigate this time. ---------------------------- Here is the original post - tweaked just slightly. Add to the list near the bottom if you wish. We all want to feel loved and safe, and have all we need to survive – and to thrive. Everyone in the world should have the opportunities for these – to have access to their basic and general needs, and to the paths to help them reach their potentials. This desire to feel loved and safe is born out of remembrance – of a time before we feel negativity – into greed, judgment, inequality, divisiveness, and non-co-operation. And although what we are going through now is harder than what most of us have seen in our lifetime, it is giving us the opportunity to bring about that ideal world we all yearn for. It is forcing us to band together – in love and co-operation – as we have never seen before. And we are passing with flying colors. It is the focusing on love, compassion, sharing, co-operation – and what we want (for ourselves, others, and the world), rather than on blame, criticism, and greed – and what we don't want – that is creating the upward spiral of energy that will usher in the changes we long for – and keep the momentum moving forward. Focusing on the negative, the drama, what we don't want, what frustrates us, or makes us angry blocks the flow to positive change. I'm not saying that today it is easy today to be fully positive and not fall into fear or get involved in some of the drama. None of us can fully do that. But we can try – and check ourselves when we do. In our ever-changing world where one day we are witness to love and compassion and are uplifted because we feel people and the world are finally moving towards being more loving, compassionate, and supportive of one another, and [...]

Newsletter January 2020, Because I Can

2020-01-31T22:10:31+00:00

Because I Can was the theme of my January message because when I was doing a little cooking just before the holidays for those in need, someone made a comment, “its so great that you can do all this.” My thought was, “I do it because I can.” I share part of the message here with you as it is long. The link to read the whole message is below, which is also the link to sign up for my monthly newsletter/message. BECAUSE I CAN The world needs every little bit of upliftment we can offer. Whenever we offer a helping hand or uplift anyone in any way, we help make the world a better place. And we all want that! “Because I can” does not necessarily have to involve doing. Being generous of spirit is also a wonderful gift to extend to others. It is easiest to help another(s) in a physical sense with practical deeds when their difficulties are not of their own doing. It is easiest to extend a smile, a kind word, or a kind gesture when the other(s) is calm, friendly, and in a good mood. However, It is those who may have brought on their own hardships, and those who are frenzied, unfriendly, or even rude, that need our expressions of love the most. Most of us have had hurts, suffered loss, and/or have had difficult circumstances at one point or another in our life. And we all deal with it differently. Some of us overcome it rather easily. Some of us develop a bad temper. Others of us become stressed-out. Some of us become needy, controlling, demanding, and generally behave badly. We may also become dysfunctional in one or a few of the various ways – sometimes to the point of turning to drugs or alcohol. All these ways of dealing with life are cries for help. They help us to forget. To dull the pain. Compassion is always the answer – however the situation calls for it. Although these unproductive ways of dealing with life usually create more problems for us, we lean on them until we can face what is keeping us down. We all also overcome the effects of our hurts, losses, and difficult circumstances on different timelines. Most of us are just doing our best with where we are at any moment in time. We are also doing our best to be (or become) happy, and feel empowered. Even those of us who have significantly overcome our issues have bad days. So, we could all do with compassion and understanding as we navigate through all life has thrown at us. Looking back to my 20’s, I was a crazed person – just trying to navigate life as best I could. Between many family stresses that caused conflicting emotions in me, attempting to be “wonder woman” to avoid being disempowered like my mother, trying to be a good mother to my young son, while at the same time needing to have some fun [...]

But just like with us, many have been victims of cruelty – for sport, for food, for greed, and even simply because of ignorance and meanness. Animals have always helped us with our crops and for getting around. And so long as we treat them with kindness, ensure they are given what they need to be warm, safe, and healthy, and train them firmly, but gently, we are using them as intended. Properly and kindly trained animals [...]

I Want to Live in a World That …

2019-10-09T20:35:38+00:00

We all want to feel loved and safe, and have all we need to survive - and to thrive. Everyone in the world should have the opportunities for these - to have access to their basic and general needs, and to be have access to paths to help them reach their potentials. And it is focusing on what we want (for ourselves, others, and the world), rather than what we don't want -  is what creates the energy flow towards positive changes, and keeps it moving forward. Focusing on what we don't want, what frustrates us, or make us angry blocks the flow to positive change. But today, in our ever-changing world where one day we are witness to love and compassion and are uplifted because we feel people and the world are finally moving towards being more loving, and the next day we see visions of brutality and war splashed all over the news we become disheartened. We may even give up on hoping for a better world. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- This article/blog post is based in concepts from my books “Your Journey to Peace … “ About Book  here  and “Why We Are the Way We Are”  About Book  here (Book cover images below) ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ We must NEVER give up hoping for a better world. Praying for better circumstances and a more loving and fair world and sending light and love to others and areas of the world that are suffering in our meditations are so very helpful. But so is CLAIMING the world we want to live in with the quality and intensity of our thoughts and words. CLAIMING what we want to see in the world as already manifest helps change any prevailing focus we may hold that is pessimistic, to optimistic. It keeps the message we send to the Universe clean and clear. And keeps hope alive in us. To ensure our desires come about, our being must hold the prevailing inner-belief that what we want IS POSSIBLE. Hopefulness must run in our veins. Thought-patterns that support the belief of not having, rather than of having reduces the possibility of them coming about. Here are a few examples of how we might PROCLAIM the world we want to see. Feel free to add your own, ignore some, or tweak aspects of any to more closely resemble your concerns about the world. Say them to your self, or out loud. Just say them firmly and mean them! I Want to Live in a World – where we all feel safe and have all we need to survive. I Want to Live in a World – where we extend respect and the qualities of love to each other. I Want to Live in a World – that promotes hope and optimism. I Want to Live in a World - where everyone is treated fairly - no matter their sex, race, creed, social standing, sexual orientation (add in others if you want). I Want to Live in a World – that promotes compassion towards everyone. [...]

I Want to Live in A Word That …

2019-06-10T22:41:36+00:00

We all want to feel loved and safe, and have all we need to survive and thrive. These are our basic and general desires, and below are some more specific desires that will help bring our general desires about. We want to live in a world that is compassionate and fair towards us and our families. We want to live in a world where we are accepted just as we are - without judgment, prejudice, or biases aimed at us or that undermine our efforts. We want to live in world where we have the opportunities to become all that we can be. We want to live in a world where we feel empowered and in control of our own destinies. And we all want to live in a world where all this is possible for everyone on the Planet. To make the world we want manifest we have to believe it is possible. To support that belief, we have to ensure we are inviting into the world we want. We have to think, say, and do what will bring it about. We have to claim it! We now know the impact our thoughts have on our personal experiences. And as our attitudes and actions are extensions of our thoughts and inner-beliefs, they also affect our personal experiences. We may know, or at least have an inkling, that what we put out into the world is affecting the world around us. However, we aren't often convicted enough to change it all, or don't quite know how to go about it or where to start. What many do not know is how much our seemingly small everyday attitudes and choices affect the world we live in. If we have a positive attitude, are fair, compassionate, and accepting of others, we are inviting these qualities into the world. However, if we are negative, greedy, unfair towards others, or critical and judgmental of people, we are inviting greed, unfairness, criticism, and judgment into our world. As a rule, our past has not taught us to be positive, giving, and accepting of others. It has not taught us the importance of promoting attitudes that are life-affirming. So, our default is to focus on the negative - regarding ourselves, others, and situations. This blog article is based on concepts in my 2 books  “Your Journey to Peace …”    and “Why We Are the Way We Are” (Links to About Books below. Both available in Print and E-book)  Our minds have become accustomed to focus more on the ins and outs of a problem, rather than on the possible solutions. This is true with our difficulties, our issues with others, and with what is going on in the world. To override this negative default position we inherited from Humanity’s past, we have to: Consciously seek out life-affirming solutions. Choose to extend to others the qualities we want to see in the world. Proclaim what we want to see in the world with our attitudes, words, and actions. This [...]

The Importance of Embracing Our Passions (Part 1)

2018-11-30T17:59:41+00:00

(Part 2 will be published next week) There are many reasons we manifest on earth. To experience and to express love. To remember, or to learn, the importance of tapping into joy, To help each other through life. To learn to overcome obstacles – our life lessons – that help us grow spiritually and our soul to evolve. To discover our soul/life purpose. Embracing our heart’s desires, which show up as our longings and develop into our passions helps us achieve what we came here for. Heeding our longings – the yearning in our hearts helps us discover our passions. Embracing our passions brings us joy. Makes us feel alive. Keeps us feeling empowered. Leaning into our passions creates positive, uplifting vibrations within our being – which extend out into the world as we go about daily life. Humanity is going through a metamorphosis – a Shift. The cosmos is showering us with gifts of love, light, and grace that are encouraging us to connect to what brings us joy, embody a lightness of being, discover and embrace our passions and life purpose, and become our best self. We access these gifts when we are open to universal flow. We are open to universal flow when we are living through our hearts. When we are loving. Accepting. Compassionate. Fair. Generous of spirit in all ways. This article/blog post is based on concepts in my book Your Journey to Peace, Bridging the Gap Between Religion, Spirituality, Psychology, and Science. Book Synopsis is found here). When We Are Closed to Universal Flow Being unyielding to change, or at the affect of unconscious influences that direct our thoughts, attitudes, or behaviors in negative or divisive ways blocks universal flow. Blocks access to love. To joy. To our passions. This Shift is encouraging us to become more flexible – more open to new ideas. To replacing old, outdated notions of what makes us happy and contented. Open to the importance of joy. To experiencing joy. More open-hearted. It is also guiding us to recognize and overcome any unconscious influences that are keeping us distanced from our true selves and distanced from others. To become aware of how our thoughts, attitudes, and actions are affecting ourselves, those around us, and the world as a whole. Guiding us to face what has kept us from accessing joy, being able to connect to our passions, discover our life purpose, and become our best self.  We are asked to forgive what we have – and have not done that is not of love regarding ourselves, and regarding others. To become more conscious. More accepting and open-hearted towards others. To become more open-hearted and open to universal flow we can, Engage in light-hearted activities; Socialize with happy, positive people; Spend time around animals; Immerse our self in nature; Listen to music attuned to the higher vibrations in the universe. These all help our energetic beings stay in balance and in tune with universal flow amidst the onslaught of the stressors of modern day living. Here is [...]
