The recent events in Sydney Australia have me reflecting on the reality of this situation and how quickly our lives can be effected by the actions of another and how important it is that we choose to be a positive influence with our families our friends and what we place on social media..
It was only a few months ago that I enjoyed a delicious hot chocolate at the effected cafe and I have visited on many occasions with my daughter, my mum and my boys.
My thoughts go out immediately to all those whose lives have been directly affected by this tragic event. My next thoughts are to my own family and friends and in particular my 3 beautiful and precious children, my level of appreciation for them in my life has reached a new height.
At times like these we can as individuals make a difference. We can firstly express our love and gratitude for our own friends and families and then we can choose to be a stand for positivity. Some of the ways we can do this is by sending love through prayer and meditation, by lighting a candle, by being gentle with ourselves and those we love and stop watching the footage over and over again. The more we focus on what has happened the more we feed that negative energy and what we focus on increases so now more than ever love is the energy we must focus on. Don’t stand for any negative conversations, choose uplifting, compassionate and loving conversations remembering we are all human beings.
If you are emotional – that’s understandable however we don’t want to stay in that place so reach out to a friend or professional and surround yourself with uplifting movies, social media, books, and audios.
There is great opportunity for us now to stand strong in the energy of love, to be tolerant, compassionate and hold the strong vision of peace on earth.
You can shine the light for others to follow.
