How about we use our voices , hashtags, ‘likes’ and blogs to post and link to messages and stories of love instead of fear? Just imagine that each time we became aware of yet another post on our social media wall that draws attention to fear mongering and criticism (which, if you are not completely present, can take you out and pull you down emotionally) you actively found something to share and counteract that message.
Im not talking about just ‘positive thinking’ here nor having it be like putting lipstick on a pig, but using conscious action to shift your attention and use the power of your virtual voice to focus on the instances of loving action and truth that are around us in abundance.
How powerful it is to take full responsibility for our own state of mind and what we allow to fill it and fuel it!
So for example, I recently re-posted the news that it has been announced that all children of asylum seekers will be released from detention in Australia by Xmas. With a call to action to lend your voice by calling Malcolm Turnbull’s office to follow through on processing this decision without delay.
What I feel will happen is similar to what I experience in my own body and that is a feeling of expansion and lightness rather than a powerless contraction that can often be felt when focus goes on what ISN”T working rather than what IS. Ultimately it is all ‘working’ even when it doesn’t look or feel that way but that’s a WHOLE other blog post!
I would love to hear from any of you with examples of where you have counteracted a fearful message or piece of news with a loving one. And in particular I would love to hear if you were able to notice any shift in your energy about it all. It may take a few goes to become obvious but today feels like the day to start!
