Day Twenty One: Coming from the Place of the Heart

21 days went by really fast—or really slow depending on which day you asked me on. When I started this idea to positively change social media, I was coming from a place of discourgaement, hurt, and sadness. I needed to move out of my mind and the anxiety I had and into my heart space. What better way to do that, than focus on all the good and positive things that were out there? So really this challenge was developed because i NEEDED something to keep me moving forward. And you know what? It worked.

Everyday I made an effort (for at least the length of time it took me to write the article) to move into my heart space and out of my head. I would sit and ask myself, “What do I need to hear today? What do I need to know?” and then I would begin writing.

Day Eighteen:See Beyond

This powerful quote from Gandhi stops me in my tracks. It is SO TRUE. It’s easy to identify hate. It’s a pretty strong emotion. You can flip through the news and see all the things hate has help build and make. We may sit on our couch and say:  “That is not right!” “They are wrong!” “They are bad.” maybe even perhaps, “They are evil.” However what does that do for either side? Nothing. It leaves you judging the person who has hate in them or acts upon their hate. It does nothing except fuel the fires.

Day Twelve: Seeing the Light

Heading out today to do some shopping? Take this opportunity to look at your fellow humans in a new light. Take the time to feel the connection, the bond that exists between everyone of us. Extend compassion and empathy to everyone you meet today no matter how stressed you are or how stressed they are. Look into the eyes of the cashier, the barista, the sales associate and really see them. Recognize the Light of the Divine in each one. Look at them and say, “thank you” and make sure they know you see them

Day Four: Shift from Within

I love this quote by Anita Moorjani: "The only thing you can do is make the shift within yourself."

It's so true and, I believe, extremely helpful advice right now. We can't control others. We can't control how they think, how they feel, how they react. We can't "fix" them. That's not our responsibility. Our responsibility is to ourselves--making the changes from within and letting them radiate outward....

21 Day Intentional Social Media Challenge

In Light is the New Black, Rebecca Campbell says, “Just as your thoughts create the world, our collective energy creates THE world. Thanks to social media, this collective energy can now spread even more quickly…”

Let’s take a moment and think about this. What have you seen lately on Facebook and other social media outlets? I’ve seen fear. I’ve seen hate. I’ve seen panic and anxiety. I’ve seen cruelty.

However, I’ve also seen love, kindness, compassion, and understanding. I’ve seen Lightworkers pick themselves up, dust themselves off, and start posting positive things, inspiring things, and hopeful things.

November 9th: The Watchers, The Witnesses

Earlier in the week I drew two cards for the weekly reading: The Watcher Queen of Mirrors from the Chrysalis Tarot and Love/Compassion from Earth Magic Oracle. I tried for hours to come up with a reading with these cards and I couldn't. I wrote it off to having a cold at the time and didn't post anything. I left it on my desk, though, because I never blow off a reading, even if I don't understand it at the time.
