There has been so much unrest in the world with all the hurricane activity taking place. If you are affected by the unrest, I couldn’t even begin to imagine how this may be impacting you and your family. Is the Divine showing us something through these hurricanes?
I receive a newsletter from Sheevaun Moran, a business advisor, master coach and energy thought leader. Sheevaun was talking about the hurricanes and said this, “Water is a symbol of purification and heart. Water is about emotions and what we are doing emotionally. Without water we would perish and yet when our emotional conditions are filled with pain, distrust and animosity from too many sides then water has a lot to say. Maybe the waters of the earth are saying something important about the value of connection and collaborations and caring for others above the discord. We are truly “all one” when it counts.”
Those words really spoke to me. People have been donating money in support of the victims of these storms. The support has been immeasurable and continues to show up in more ways than just financial. This is a beautiful way to support and care for one another in the world. Caring that may not always show up the same for those closer to home.
Sometimes it’s not always easy to support and care for those around you. That is part of the ups and downs in life. But taking the opportunity to donate for the relief of others can be one way of receiving relief in return. Have you ever thought of that? What you give out will come back to you. This is another application of what that could look like. We all make the world go round.
This concept of giving to help others experience relief makes me think of a saying Morgan Freeman said on the show Evan Almighty (2007). In this movie, Morgan plays the part of God. God says, “Let me ask you something. If someone prays for patience, you think God gives them patience? Or does he give them the opportunity to be patient? If he prayed for courage, does God give him courage, or does he give him opportunities to be courageous? If someone prayed for the family to be closer, do you think God zaps them with warm fuzzy feelings, or does he give them opportunities to love each other? How do we change the world? One Act of Random Kindness.”
I invite you today to consider anything you do which offers relief in some way for another…that relief will make a difference not only for another but for yourself as well.
I would like to give a shout out for an amazing charity Sheevaun is a part of. It’s called ‘Create a Bright Life’ http://createabrightlife.org . For many years her charity has been giving and serving those in need in the western states. How perfect to have that resource available now for the victims of the current hurricanes.
Wherever you are on your journey, may you find what works for you…find your own truth…and you will always be guided to feel at peace inside.
