You will quickly find that this blog will be full of anything and everything that comes to my mind involving social changes to support raising our collective consciousness and in turn ending human trafficking (and other social issues). And today is one of those random days… I had this whole thing planned out about writing about reducing waste on your grocery store visits and how to buy more fair trade products during those visits. Well my mind is simply on another topic – “What you resist persists.”
Now what I am about to say may sound very radical to some and that is fine. All I ask is for you to consider what I am saying for a few moments and let it soak in and just see how it feels. Can you do that for me? Gracias!
Let’s start with a quote about Law of Attraction and “Fighting Against” something from Jerry & Esther Hicks work with the being(s) known as Abraham (if you haven’t heard of them, go check it out – A-MAZING!) -
“We notice that there are so many people who are living life in a very conditional way. They look out and they see things that are wonderful and they say “yes we want more of those, we would vote for that, we would support that with our time and energy and money”, but then they look out and they see things that they do not want, terrible things that they do not want to live and that they do not want to see others live, and they say “we’ve got to do something about getting rid of those things”, but they don’t realize that as they push against the unwanted, they add power to it.
In this world there is a war against poverty, and a war against cancer, and a war against teenage pregnancy, and a war against terrorism, and a war against violence, and a war against terrorism.. did we mention that there is a war against terrorism? And all of this pushing against, is only adding-to, because you can’t say no and make it go away. When you shout no, the law of attraction is lining that up.”
- Abraham Hicks ‘Esther Hicks’
My mind is circling around this thought continuously. Because I am VERY passionate about injustices in our world like human trafficking/slavery, cruelty to animals, and inequalities in our world, but the kicker here is I don’t want to add to the power behind continuing these issues. How do I make a difference and not add to the problem by fighting against these issues?
Another quote to consider, also from Abraham Hicks -
“It’s not your work to make anything happen. It’s your work to dream it and let it happen. Law of Attraction will make it happen. In your joy, you create something, and then you maintain your vibrational harmony with it, and the Universe must find a way to bring it about. That’s the promise of Law of Attraction.” — Abraham
How do I, how do WE, dream into existence the end of human slavery, of injustices in our world and ultimately peace? What comes to my mind immediately is simple.
- Imagine it, dream it, live it, regardless of whether or not it is a reality. Be in vibration with what is good and let me tell you there are SO MANY people, brands, companies out there doing amazing work! Buying from them creates that higher consciousness & vibration.
- Come from love with everyone, especially those that we see as the evil ones. As crazy as it sounds, they are teaching us something and we don’t know what kinda life got them to this point. Check out Radical Forgiveness by Colin Tipping and you will have a MUCH better idea what I am referring to here. Maybe I will write more on this one day. hehe.
- Focus on doing what feels good to support these causes. For me it is sharing with you and buying the fun and yummy products from individuals & companies that support Fair Trade. Not by focusing my attention on all the terrible news out there of the injustices in this world. Don’t get me wrong, I will be praying for these people and our world, and signing petitions and help support the end of these issues. However, it will not be through focusing on the bad and making others wrong. Has that gotten us anywhere thus far? I would say no.
Tonight I am starting my volunteer training at one of the most sophisticated Domestic & Sexual Violence Shelters in the country, so you can imagine where my thoughts are. The stuff I have had to read is gut wrenching but I will not put my attention on that. My attention will go on what feels good and what I can do to raise the consciousness so we are all imagining a world full of peace and love and thus bringing into our REALITY.
Maybe this is a wild dream, and I may be extreme or radical, and you know what? SO BE IT! :-) It feels right to me and I truly believe that if more people like us that care so much came from this space that it would make a world of difference.
Just dream with me for a minute.
Now notice where your resistance comes in. Now go throw it in the trash!
Lots of love to you all!
Love! Freedom! Power!
