Where's your mind at?

Right now so many people are hurting. The tales of illness, job loss, and war fill the airwaves. The negativity has been unbearable for some, driving them to the violence we've seen making headlines.

We need a return to the light. We need a return to a perspective of joy. We need hope. It is more important than ever that each and everyone of us pay attention to our thoughts and emotions.

Too often we don't realize that our thoughts are creative energies. We manifest reality through our thoughts and each second make choices in creating our world. The universe hears our calls. If we come from a perspective of lack then that will become the seed of our lives. So it is important to focus on every blessing that we have. Most of us are fortunate enough to have some kind of shelter, running water, food in our stomachs, and family that love us.

So this is the question: Where's your mind at? Are you grateful? Are you doing something with your abundance of blessings to lift someone else up?

We each need to watch our words and interactions to make sure we are sharing positivity, joy, affirmation, and compassion as much as possible. Watch yourself and you may find yourself tempted to share some negative story or a complaint. Try to resist that and share something positive instead.

We need to use our spiritual tools to help us cope during this time. Don't neglect meditation, exercise, and play.

Pray. Our fault is not that we ask God too much, but that we ask of Him too little. Ask for your heart to be opened, your perspective to be changed so that you are able to lead the kind of miraculous life you are meant for. Pray for the abundance, peace, and healing of the Earth we so need right now.

Hold on to one another. We all need so badly to know we are not alone right now. Reach out so that no one feels they have to face whatever struggles and fears they might have on their own. Validate those around around you and remind them of how special they are, what a gift they are to the world. Let someone know what a difference he or she has made in your life.

If it takes not reading the newspaper or watching the news to help you feel more positive then do it. Instead take the time to sing, laugh, get out into nature, create a work of art. Do whatever will open your heart so you can embrace the light.

We can come together to create the world we all long for. It just takes awareness. It takes growth. It takes working through fears. It takes one thought at a time.


  1. Wow! What a great article! This is such a great reminder that regardless of what is going on around us - we do have so much to be thankful for.

    While my heart aches for the homeless in America, they at least can get government help. In other countries, if you are homeless, you get no additional help.

    I love this statement "Validate those around around you and remind them of how special they are, what a gift they are to the world. Let someone know what a difference he or she has made in your life." because this is something that everyone of us can do. No matter how old we are, where we work (or don't work) or our financial status.

    You nailed it! Great stuff!

  2. Oh chica, you have no idea how much I needed to hear these words. It's so easy to forget our blessings, easy to dwell on the things that are wrong and neglect the things that are right. Thank you for the smile and the hope written here.
