That is a question I have heard a great many people sounding out lately. Everywhere, in all corners of our lovely Mother Earth…”stuff” is happening. Unsettling things, events we never imagined, people and governments doing wild and erratic things…and it feels like the energy is only ramping up…and we wonder how to deal with it all, how we will continue to forge our own paths. In the midst of our confusion lies an impossible conundrum…
What To Believe In…Anymore.
I read a headline this week that said we have lost hope and have nothing more to Believe in. And I want to challenge that headline here. Because we absolutely DO have something left to Believe in. Even in the face of such things we appear to have no control over…we still have something solid, steady, and powerful to Believe in. And that is…Ourselves!
We may feel we are at a low point, and when we look out into the world, there is precious little to stake our hope and belief in the future on. And So…if we cannot find Belief out there…the most profound and sacred choice would be to…Believe in Ourselves.
Believe that we can still retain our Inner Light, our Inner Peace, and our Inner True Soul and Self…because nothing and no one can ever take those from us. And with those, we can still forge our lives in the best way we can to follow our paths…which we still can…and must…do.
By Believing in ourselves even in the face of all this confusion, it keeps the concept, the energy of Believe alive and real and resonates in the air and energy around us.
We cannot allow Belief and Hope to die. We must keep it alive, within ourselves, so that…no matter what…we still have US, our lives, and the Love and Light that we shine. It can and will make a difference. We must not stop Believing in that.
NO MATTER WHAT WE THINK IS OR ISN’T OUT THERE TO BELIEVE IN ANYMORE…THE MOST IMPORTANT AND LIFE AFFIRMING BELIEF…IS IN OURSELVES. THAT IS WHO AND WHAT WE BELIEVE IN…AND THAT CAN CHANGE ANYTHING!
Did reading that make you giggle just a little bit and say whaaa…? It has a good sound, like something you want to repeat a couple of times because it rolls off your tongue in a cheeky kind of way. (See what I did there?) Anyway, I learned this at a self-help seminar many years ago, when they were all the rage, but it stuck with me and I have used it many times over the years. I do not know if there is an “author” or inventor of this little gem to give credit to, I do not know the origin of it, but if there is, consider yourself credited and thanked for this little quip that may sound funny but carries a potent message. It seemed a good thing to say today.
Repeat this affirmation as many times as you need to today…and pass it on. It is easy to say when you can’t get all the words out yourself. And, it can make a difference.
And Believe in the
of Hope, Love, Unity, Kindness, and Patience.
Blessings and Love to You All!!
As I thought about writing this blog, the first one after a major shift in our worlds, I was unsure exactly what to say. Emotions are running high…as well as low…and uncertainty has become our bedfellow. We are faced with a path whose identity we do not know and we are about to take many unsure steps in a landscape we cannot yet see. It is unsettling…and we are not sure what to do with it all.
I wanted to write more of what I and a host of other wonderful and magical blog writers have been saying…which is the absolute truth…and that is to stay Peaceful, come from Love, and have Patience. It is so important that we make these three things our primary focus going forward. Just because what has happened has happened…does not mean we do not have Power in the situation. And we should not give up that Power in despair or loss of hope. There is always Hope and Action.
But then something else occurred to me, and it helped with my own process through this field of emotions.
We have all been saying for a long time we need this world to change, that we are headed for disaster if we don’t, and that we want to see the world living in Harmony, Love, and Prosperity. Things have been going from bad to worse…and we need to find a way out of it. So, what happens when major change needs to occur? When there is a buildup of energy, as in a volcano, or in ourselves for that matter. Think about what happens when we feel frustrated or angry but nothing happens or changes and the energy builds, and builds within us until we feel we can no longer contain it. Then someone says something or something happens and…we release it, or explode. The issue gets out and we deal with it, fix it, handle it and our emotions…change occurs…resolution follows…and it is better for the happening.
So when something needs to change but it is not happening…something else has to come along and nudge it…and then it can blow open to be acknowledged, accepted, and handled and changed. That “something” is called a Catalyst.
And almost no one, almost never, likes the Catalyst.
The Merriam Webster dictionary gives a definition of a Catalyst as: “an agent or event that speeds significant change or action; a person or thing that precipitates an event
When we call for Change, big Change…the Catalyst forms to induce that Change. We mostly never know what the Catalyst will be…and again…we never like the Catalyst…for it is always adverse in order to create movement. There has to be friction to create movement. And a Catalyst to induce movement and Change.
So perhaps we can look at the current situation as the Catalyst that precipitates great change…and make sure that the change is what we want it to be. What needed to Change has been blown wide open by a Catalyst we did not expect. It can be frightening being in the path of a Catalyst, especially at this level. BUT…with the door wide open…this is our opportunity to put into action all of the things we have been talking about and fill that space up with Love, Light, Peace, and Prosperity. In whatever way we can.
Absolutely everyone has their special gift…now is the time to use it, to be your authentic self and pour it into the world. Fill this wide open space with all those things we want and need in our world. This is what we are here for. This is our moment. Who knows what can happen if everyone does this and the energy gets moved by it. Think about it. It can Change! And then…absolutely anything can happen.
There is Hope…there is Love…and there is Action. Let us move forward in Hope, Love, and Positive Action.
Blessings and Love To All!
