One of the biggest hurdles I’ve had to overcome in raising my vibration is how I react to the suffering of others. Every time a terrible event occurred, I felt it ALL personally. I raged, I resisted and I lamented. Nothing changed. Well, actually something did change – I lowered my vibration.
The reason I kept falling into this trap was due to a trick I kept playing on myself. It was a classic deception orchestrated by the ego. And I look back now on how I raged and sobbed over events such as the Paris massacre and I see that it accomplished nothing positive.
My ego told me that my anger, my anguish and my tears were transformative. That by sheer will and outrage my jagged anger could somehow influence events in the outer world of form, simply because I wanted it with such passion. And then, it dawned on me, that rather than alleviating suffering, I was CONTRIBUTING to it. Because we live in an energetic Universe as energetic beings, I was fuelling up on global tragedies and churning out more darkness, more anger, more despair and crucially more fear.
Those that plan these events know exactly what they are doing. They are creating the environment for fear, anger and separation to flourish. Every war and massacre harms far more people than those that perish as a direct result. Millions of people are allowing their energy to be hijacked by the dark side. And when people, normal everyday people, are consumed by fear, there is no depths to which they will not sink, no depravity they will not commit. When fear takes hold of us, we lose sight of our humanity.
So, one day I decided to stop giving the darkness a leg up. It was difficult at first, because it made me feel cold and selfish. I felt as though I was abandoning those that were suffering. But you know what? It was all residual programming; my tears didn’t help anyone. They didn’t help Syrian refugees, the homeless or the starving. When we lament at the suffering of others, it only serves to reassure US that we are kind, compassionate people. I think that is the ultimate egocentric position to take.
That doesn’t mean we don’t DO anything to help others. We can be supportive to those people we actually KNOW rather than people far away who we can’t possibly reach. We can send healing, love and light to our brothers and sisters in other countries and we can donate. We can pray and/or set intentions for an end to wars, hunger and disease. But then we let it go. We turn our attention back to the light that we are and be that in our relationships, homes and towns. We embody loving kindness with no drama.
If enough of us take responsibility for holding a frequency of love, light and peace in our immediate vicinity we can create a network of protection around the whole world. We can hook up and feed the network of energy that’s in alignment with the Light. Once we effectively cut off the food source that sustains and feeds the darkness, we disempower it.
So, from now on, you won’t see me participating in online rants or global cry-ins. Instead, I’ll be quietly radiating love, light, peace and unity. I’ll be loving myself by taking care of the energy I align myself with and I’ll be loving others by ensuring that I radiate the love that I am into the interconnected web we all rely on.
The New Earth is already here. We can all join it as active participants right this instant. But we have to choose it. A world of loving kindness and cooperation is a living reality. The door is wide open for us all to step through. There is another world too – a darker world of fear and separation, a world of dog eat dog. They both exist simultaneously. We have free will. We can choose either. We stand on a precipice. Will we choose abundance or lack? Love or fear? Separation or unity? Ease or struggle? It’s up to us to actively and consciously choose in every moment. Before we step across the threshold, we need to ask ‘Am I reacting or am I responding?’ Fear reacts, love responds.
