If we want to align with the energy that will make this world better, we have to put our energy in a place that lifts our energy to that level. One of the places I love going for that is searching out compassionate people in the world. I love watching, listening, and reading stories of people rising up to help others in some way. I’m blessed to be surrounded by many compassionate souls, so I watch friends and strangers come together to pray, stand, and support people despite any differences, but through the connection of humanity. It is very easy to get lost in the division, caused by feeding the energy of fear, lack, and separation. I have so much love and respect for the people who rise above it, and listen, speak, and share from the heart, because that is how we feed the energy of love, abundance, and peace.
Today’s challenge is to commit to practicing compassion with ourselves and others. First, we have to start inside. If we are not compassionate to ourselves, we won’t recognize when we are not being compassionate to others, ESPECIALLY those who think differently than we do. First, if you are looking in the mirror and criticizing yourself, STOP! See the beautiful soul that you are. The better you nurture and love yourself, the easier it is to take care of yourself. Abusing ourselves, only keeps us in the energy of fear, lack, and separation. By doing that, we create more of that energy in the world. So if we want more love, abundance, and peace in the world, we have to feel it inside and that all begins with having compassion for ourselves and end the self-abuse. I do know this isn’t a one day challenge, but we have to start somewhere. Why not here? Why not now?
Once we show ourselves compassion, it will be much easier to show compassion to others, because remember just like us, we only ever can share what is inside of us. If a person is filled with the energy of fear, lack, and separation, their perceptions of themselves and others is driven by that. If a person is filled with the energy of love, abundance, and peace, they will look at themselves and others through that lens. Our compassion, can be the light that someone needs to shift their energy to a more loving and peaceful place. Spend time watching how this happens. Search out good Samaritan stories. Pay attention to what happens in your body when you watch them. Now, imagine for one second, you have the power to create that shift in energy. How does that feel inside you? Start with how to make yourself feel that way, then extend that energy out.
