Understanding is Power

Sometimes, the world revealed to us through the filter of main stream media can appear to be filled with nothing but tragedy, pain and heartache. Under persistent bombardment of these vibrations it can be easy to ask yourself “what’s the point?….what’s the point of even trying to change things when all the odds seem so hugely stacked against us?“. If you’ve felt or are feeling this way then you’re not alone and moments of despair and hopelessness are very much a part of the human condition, BUT if you find yourself feeling this way, it’s worth considering this: what is reported on main stream media is not a true reflection of all that is happening in our world.  Knowledge is power and understanding how dramatic (particularly negative) events wield the power to ensnare our brains is something that we personally feel we should all be aware of. There’s a reason that tragedy and negative news sells papers, because to a large extent evolution has wired our brains to pay more attention to dramatic, often negative news than the alternative …

Why I Don’t Watch the News

Until about a year ago, I used to digest every bit of soul-destroying, negative news reporting as if it was my *duty* to be informed, no matter how horrific, but I don’t watch the mainstream news any more (except for scanning the headlines briefly on news websites). Instead, I made a conscious decision to focus on positive news from around the world and turn my energy and my attention to other shifts that are currently occurring which the mainstream media largely ignore. It can be so very easy to get bogged down with all the things that aren’t right with the world and in doing so one can totally miss all the amazing things that ARE happening, one of which is the fact that so many of us are “awakening” and realising *who/what we really are* and *why we are here*.

Sweet Robin

I found myself crying the other day as I watched a heartfelt tribute by Billy Crystal to the late Robin Williams. So, why was I sat there crying over the loss of someone I didn’t personally know and whose films and comedy shows I’d only really ever watched if they happened to be on the TV (it’s not like I was an out and out fan or anything)? I’ve spent the last few days pondering this and I think I have an answer of sorts….. Perhaps, as human beings, we instinctively want to belong (not only for evolutionary safety purposes) because somewhere deep down inside our souls we all feel this longing to be connected. Indeed, it is MY belief that we ARE all connected on an energetic level (reiki has demonstrated that to me in abundance) but this doesn’t mean that one necessarily *feels* connected. Understanding that we are all part of this *oneness* (for want of a better word) is vastly different from feeling like we actually ARE part of it. In fact, I know many people who do or …
