I found it interesting that last summer I was buying new artistic decorations to put in my yard. I usually get hummingbirds on a metal stake or butterflies and fairies. I did get some flowers and hummingbirds but I saw the word HOPE on a stick and decided I wanted it. I placed it in my entry to my house next to a Buddha statue I have there. When winter came I took all the decorations down accept for the letters HOPE! I left it there all year.
Now in this fine January I find the theme of many of my clients have been that they feel a lack of hope. It is not important whether it was the election or the state the country is in or life itself as it appears on the news. What concerned me was the amount of people who were feeling a lack of hope. No matter what is going on in this world we are always the catalyst for change. Many think one person cannot make a difference yet we do. For every ONE who is making any change, even a little step as a token of kindness they extend or a smile or a kind word, each deed sends out a radiation of love and of hope. If each individual knew with certainty their moment by moment kindness makes a difference it sends it out and joins other energy with millions of people who think they are just ONE and that creates a wave across the planet. Something to think about because if you are in fear, anger and despair that also joins with others who feel that way. Then this is what we are sending in a wave across the planet. Which one do you want to be accountable for feeding?
Some make small acts of kindness and some feel moved to work with larger groups. In both cases it is making a difference. To make the world a better place and to be a part of the change here HOPE is essential. Please do not buy into all the fear and lack of love energy because in all reality there are three great things happening to every one not so great thing happening. The difference is we hearing ten negatives to one good because apparently all the good works are not being reported in the numbers that they are happening.
You may start or join a movement and if you do please make sure it is coming from the heart and love and not from anger and desperation. It matters how we participate in the change. Many may feel that it is in daily actions with the world and again from love. I felt moved to add below a small exercise to play with daily. So however you are involved in the change or if you are trying to regain a sense of hope have fun with this and add to it. Make it about it is our reality of what world we choose to participate in and manifest.
Add ways to express these daily:
H – help, heal, honor, happiness, humor, honesty
O – optimism, opportunities (be open to them and offer someone them) one another
P – passion, peaceful, promote love, potential, playfulness
E- empower, have enthusiasm, experience, encourage others, engage
Your world is a choice and you do choose which reality you experience!
