What we plant in the soil of contemplation, we shall reap in the harvest of action.
~ Meister Eckhart
I’m into crystals and good energy and harnessing more. It’s just like prayer.
It helps you be grateful, think about good things, and keep that positive energy around you.
~ Kali Uchis
I was inspired by the interview with David Beasley, Executive Director of the UN World Food Program about food (in)security on Face The Nation on April 15 – and especially by his first recommendation about what actions we can take. “We need to pray,” he said.
Pray. Praying along with meditating, contemplating, and being mindful, have many things in common. They bring us into the present. They restore hope where there is or has been despair. They reinitiate our gratitude. They connect us to each other and to our home, Mother Earth. They make life worth living even in challenging times. They offer us a way to lift the vibration of whatever is happening in the world as a counterbalance to negative energies individually, communally, and globally. They provide healing at a most fundamental level.
With all of the death and threats of using nuclear weapons – not to mention food insecurity, climate change, social injustice, a pandemic, and so on – the world needs all of the optimistic, high vibration energy we can offer. Now more than ever.
It’s easy to underestimate such subtle acts as prayer. That’s our mental ego getting in the way. Instead, remember what you know deep within: that everything in the universe is vibration. And quality of vibration matters – a lot. While it may seem like there is little, as individuals, that we can do regarding a crisis like Ukraine (especially if we cannot travel there to offer physical service), there actually is much we can do. We can render conscious service from our hearts at each and every moment. Vibrations can be physical hell on earth via death and destruction. Vibrations can also be acts of kindness, care, and compassion that may include but also go beyond the physical world. Prayer.
As a result of watching the interview, I made a decision to take an action I’ve never taken before: to have a big sale of the Healing Stones (StoneCircles). May we potentially have more of their healing vibrations activated in the world.
Some of you already have one or more StoneCircles. Please clear and energize them anew. Then use them to trigger your consciousness to do whatever practice you have for centering, coming into the present, and offering your compassion for the pain of the world. Prayer. Mediation. Yoga. Contemplation. Mindfulness. Earthing. And so on.
If you don’t already have at least one StoneCircle, please strongly consider getting one during this sale. All designs and their variations are 30% off. Also, if you no longer have stones you gave yourself some time in the past or if they just don’t feel fresh, consider gifting yourself with new ones. Simply put, these gifts of Mother Earth are a physical way to hold the metaphysical.
What I received intuitively is that the sale will be from May 1 to June 21. Beltane (May 1) is a Gaelic celebration of the planting of seeds and all of the expansion that results from planting. It falls more or less half way between Spring Equinox and Summer Solstice. The Summer Solstice (June 21) is a celebration of the height of the sun and long days of summer (in the Northern Hemisphere).
And here’s an interesting synchronicity I just discovered yesterday: There are 44 StoneCircles, all of which were designed some years ago. Yesterday I looked at a calendar and saw that there are 44 days between Beltane and Summer Solstice. Indeed! 44 StoneCircles and a 44 day sale without mentally planning it. How about that?
There are 44 StoneCircles designs and most have variations. This means that there are more than 100 choices from necklaces to prayer beads to bracelets. Incidentally, no matter what their physical form, they are all prayer stones where prayer offers healing.
As for the graphic above, it shows three levels of healing that the stones freely give us. The red hearts represent healing at the individual level. The yellow thread represents how all of us are connected and the need for healing for all of humanity. Together, both as individuals and as a collective, our connectedness forms a necklace that is A Love Song for Mother Earth.
Here are a few short pieces that might be helpful:
