Daily Aligning with Love, Abundance, and Peace #45

Serving humanity from a loving place is one of the biggest blessings to the givers and the receivers. There is something very different about the energy when someone is serving from a loving place. I speak a lot about this in my book. Some people think they are, but really they are serving others from a place of lack, a place of fear. They are trying to find their worth in serving others. When this happens, they put out expectations and when they are not met, they are hurt making them feel worse. This only contributes to more fear, more lack, and more separation. Over time, serving this way depletes them.

When a person is serving from a loving place, you can feel it in their energy. They are shining their light and the receiver feels the warmth. It’s truly beautiful.Think about the service you get in restaurants. Most of us have had people who are serving because they need that pay check, but really don’t want to be serving us. Depending where we are in our own energy, we will feel their energy consciously (making us want to share our light with them to help to brighten theirs) or unconsciously (react with more fear, lack, and separation). Hopefully, most of us have also had the servers who we can feel the positive energy exuding out of them from an authentic place.

We can see this in every facet of life. If a person serves out of fear, including the fear of not being in God’s good graces, the service still comes from fear. It doesn’t have the same effect on the givers or the receivers. It fuel more fear, lack, and separation in the world. Now, those ones who give from a loving place, they are full before they give, and they are full after they give. Those are the people I’m focusing my gratitude on today. It’s their lights that light up the world. Pay attention!!! There are people who serve from a loving place EVERYWHERE!!! You may have to look harder for them at first, but once you put your intention of seeing them, you will. Each one you see, be grateful. Just by doing that, we increase the energy of love, abundance, and peace in the world. If we truly want to change the world, and move out of the cycle of insanity (doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result), we have to put our energy on the change we want to see.

Today’s challenge is to serve humanity from a loving place. This means we are practicing kindness, compassion, empathy, and faith. When we put out the intention that we are committing to serve humanity from a loving place, people will show up to serve. You might get a call from a friend, a text, see something on social media, see someone needing a random act of kindness when you are out, witness something that calls for your service, etc. It could be something as simple as talking to the cashier with kindness and support. In the times we are living in right now, it could be something bigger. Trust the guidance, and serve accordingly. If it is you who are brought to the situation, it’s your opportunity.

We are in need of people who are willing to look past any differences and serve humanity from a loving place. There are so many people caught in struggles beyond their control and they are getting swept up by the energy of fear, lack, and separation. Someone coming in from an authentic place of love, abundance, and peace, might be EXACTLY what they need to help them shift out of that energy. We can only serve from a loving place if it’s authentic. Otherwise, we are serving from a place of fear, lack, and separation. Even the feeling in our bodies is completely different. Even if what you have to give is a prayer or a positive thought—DO IT! Don’t judge the love in your heart, just spread it. Love and fear don’t exist in the same moment. We are either serving one or the other, and it takes us being in our full consciousness to hold onto that love during these trying times. Do the work. If you need help, my book gives tons of tools. No one can do this work for you. It is something you have to consciously decide to do and commit to. All I can tell you is humanity needs you, exactly you. We all have a light to shine, we just have to decide if we are tired of sitting in the dark.

In the Aftermath

Growing-up in Florida, you get used to tracking storms. Should I stay or should I go is commonplace in the midst of an approaching hurricane. Many of us know what it’s like to stay and/or to leave, along with the fear for people on the other end. Sometimes we can get so caught up in the fear of the storm that we lose sight of what is happening in the moment. I know it’s not just people in Florida who go through fear of natural disasters. There are earthquakes, tornados, fires, tsunamis, landslides, floods, and erupting volcanoes just to name a few other natural disasters that can have effects on how we choose to live. What we do when we are faced with these natural disasters says a lot about the people we are choosing to be. We will see the best and/or worst in ourselves if we dare to look at the thoughts that move through our heads. As I write this, Hurricane Dorian is hovering over the Bahamas going 1 mph. 

Just a couple days ago the track was aimed to move through Florida and I was consumed with the thoughts about the people I loved. As I sit here thinking about residents of the Bahamas, I’m brought back to evacuating from Hurricane Katrina and wondering if my ex-boyfriend and his family were alive since they lived in-between Biloxi, MS and New Orleans, LA. I remember searching every website trying to find out if each family member was alive. The feeling of dread haunted me when I didn’t see everyone’s name in his family reported as safe. I remember my shaking fingers as I dialed the number listed and talking to my ex’s father as he told me that they still couldn’t find his brother and how his house was leveled. 

Now, I sit and think about all the loved ones, families, friends, co-workers and community members who are going through those same fears of losing people, homes, and their communities and I know for some, the next few weeks and months will be the longest of their lives.

I think about all the people who have been affected by these natural disasters changing their lives and what it does to them anytime they see another one hit the news. In all the sadness and devastation, I can’t help but remember all the heroes who come in and step up. The first responders whether it is their career or just the power of their humanity that shines through to be there during and/or in the aftermath. The best in humanity is the only place I can find peace in these situations, so that is where I do my best to focus. 

I learn a lot from nature, so watching human reactions to natural disasters is fascinating to me. It shows us what is in the hearts of the people around us along with what we are made of ourselves. We are not perfect, I’m not telling people to shame themselves for everything they are not doing. It is important that we are honest with ourselves. This is how we will best serve the people suffering around us. We can’t let ourselves shut down or ignore what is going on inside of us. We need to be conscious of who we want to be. How can we help decrease the suffering? We are not all first responders. Some of us are better in the aftermath of the storm after the dust is settled and it’s time to re-build. We all have special skills that can benefit humanity. What are yours? 

  • Is it giving people hugs?
  • Is it a listening ear?
  • Is it writing or playing music that helps people cope?
  • Is it having money to help survivors with food, water, clothing, housing, etc.?
  • Is it having time to volunteer at shelters or passing out water and supplies?
  • Is it writing with compassion that will help inspire the humanity in others?
  • Is it encouraging others to spread their gifts?
  • Is it your hands and strength to help communities re-build?
  • Is it your prayers and the positive energy you are able to send out into the world?
  • Is it your ability to be a friend to support others who are on the frontlines?
  • Is it fundraising?

The list goes on and on because there are so many individuals needed to help a community of people recover from the aftermath of natural disasters. What’s important is that our humanity shines through, no matter what that looks like. We are accountable for our thoughts, beliefs, actions, and reactions. How will you serve humanity in the aftermath? 

  • Will you choose to be the best version of yourself today?
  • Will you choose to use your unique skills to help others?
  • Will you choose to serve humanity with the love and compassion that each individual deserves?

Hug your families, loved ones, and friends. Be grateful for what you have in this very moment—Even if all you can do is focus on one breath at a time.  Take stock of what is truly important. 

With Love and Gratitude,
