The energy has been very intense lately, so much so, I was not surprised to see the recent earthquakes in California. I tend to feel big earth changes in my body before they occur. In this case, every time I lay down to thoroughly relax, I was having Ann-quakes – odd shaking in my body and a feeling of unrest.
My in-box filled up with people who were also feeling uncharacteristically anxious or upset for no apparent reason. People seemed to be leaving the planet en masse after the last full moon. I see patterns due to the hundreds of emails I receive every week.
We are indeed intimately connected with the earth we walk upon, both physically and even more powerfully, energetically. She loves us. If you ever sit and just bask in silent gratitude for her gifts, you’ll feel a tremendous nurturing love in return.
Now, however, the angels remind us she wants us to do our best to “get along.” That seems easy with people we like but a tall order when your opinions and ideologies differ vastly from someone else’s. I wrote a newsletter earlier in the year about how it is hard not to be prejudiced against the prejudicial ones, and how it is important not to hate the haters. Easier said than done, but it is possible.
I’ve been meditating more these days to stay stable in my own field and connected to the heavens. I’ve been doing my grounding, breath work, yoga and hiking to stay grounded upon the earth. Centered that way, between heaven and earth, we can feel good even amidst chaos.
I don’t watch the news much but when I catch a bit of it and see someone spreading great chaos and hatred, I pray for them. I imagine the spark of light within them growing.
I telepathically talk to their soul, “You can do better. You are more than this. Remember love…” Can you imagine if millions of us were willing to be “Love Whisperers” for those who forget? We could change the world.
Here are a few tips to help us spread more kindness… even when it isn’t so easy.
1. Start by Being Kind to Yourself
It is easy to be kind to ourselves when we like ourselves! When you mess up or do something you don’t like, try talking to yourself and comforting yourself as you would a child. “It’s OK honey. I know you didn’t mean to explode, but you were upset. Next time lets try a kinder approach.” “You’re beautiful inside and out, dear one. Lets just figure out a way to shift our diet.” You get the idea… Be kind to yourself.
The child within is the one that hurts and feels bad. The soul always knows its beauty and perfection.
2. Be Kind to Those You Like
This is easy. Compliment the people you love when you notice something nice. Acknowledge their strengths. Let them know they’re learning from their weaknesses. Do kind things for them, when inspired.
This easy kind of kindness makes you feel good inside. Everybody wins.
3. Be Kind to the Souls of Those You Don’t Like
Perhaps you have a super irritating boss, family member, or co-worker. Maybe your neighbors are crazy or uncaring. It is easy to want to lash out towards those who hurt us, to those who are ignorant, or even malicious… and yet why add a log to the fire you wish to extinguish? Only those in pain cause others pain.
I hear many times in my office, “How could they…” There are a million versions to that sentence. The people asking genuinely want to know the answer. If you grew up neat and considerate, it is unfathomable that a neighbor could throw junk on your lawn! How could they? If you grew up being polite, it is hard to imagine rude and angry lashings. How could they?
In each case the angels look to the past, the conditioning, and the programs of the hurting ones, to show how they were once hurt in the same way they now “share” with others. To be unkind reinforces their pain, and in their minds, their right to be unkind.
Far better to ignore the hurtful, wounded ones or, if you can, exchange “beauty for ashes” as they saying goes.
One of my favorite examples came from a young woman who was being bullied unfairly in school. The angels urged her to bake cookies and go up to the bully and say, “I don’t know why you hate me. I’m a pretty nice person. I’ve made you a peace offering. I hope we can get along.” She did it. The bully posted a wonderful thank you to her on Facebook and that was the end of the bullying.
Shared kindness and humanity can build bridges of the heart when minds cannot possibly agree.
4. Be a “Love Whisperer”
Telepathically send messages to the hurting and unkind… “You are loved. You are more than this. God loves you. I love your soul. I want you to know God’s love.”
It will help you feel the Presence of the Divine within you, and it may even change a life.
I know we all want to be kind, and yet there are times when hurting souls trigger our own pain. It is in those moments, we have a chance to stretch, grow, and find a deeper love and kindness within our own hearts. Those moments aren’t easy, but they are a victory for the soul, and a kindness to our dear Mother Earth as well.
Love you all!
