As the first winds and rains of the stormy Pacific Northwest autumn begin to roll in, I sat down to write this and connect with each of you. This is what wishes to be shared today…
I welcome you with love in honor of how brightly each of us is shining and for the incredible contribution of heart-centered consciousness you offer our world just by being the One that you are. As we assemble in unity, let us explore the importance of a specific spiritual practice that offers individual relief, while also expanding the power of transformation throughout our world on a collective level. Whether the following words feel like revisiting an old friend, or offer renewed depth and breadth to an existing spiritual practice, it is not a mistake or coincidence that the following insight has found its way to you. Perhaps in this moment this is the very wisdom you are meant to consider:
While humanity can appear to be divided on many topics and levels, there is no justification for abuse, mistreatment, intolerance, or cruelty. For those who are witnesses of personal or global atrocity, we can help reverse the karmic cycle by praying for the healing of those who hurt others, as well those who have been hurt instead of solely condemning the actions of the emotionally broken.
As we view through the eyes of One eternal heart, we come to see how condemning the insidious actions of perpetrators doesn’t help anyone, including their victims to heal. When we condemn, it acts as a trauma response attempting to soothe our most frightened parts by searching for some semblance of control, or “trying to make sense of things” during moments when life feels like it has been flipped upside down.
While anger can be used to justify the condemning of those who derive strength and power from disempowering others, it can equally be used to fuel each prayer with greater intention and magnified power. By praying for each victim and perpetrator, it supports the redemption of each victim, while helping to transform predatory behavior on a vibrational level.
Such a contribution of healing is never a replacement for the efforts of social change. Rather, it’s an added potent dose of energetic expansion in support of the community and global level groundwork continually being set in motion.
When engaged on a regular basis, the profound act of prayer helps move humanity forward to co-create a world beyond the veil of division; where we no longer require expressions of darkness to inspire our light to shine.
Whether you are able to pray for all sides, or resonate more with focusing on victims instead of including perpetrators, each and every prayer always counts and matters. As a way of embracing our role as anchors of unity consciousness, may we take this moment to say a prayer to manifest healing for all sentient beings:
“Dear Beloved Universe, thank you for healing unconscious patterning and memories of trauma so to transmute and resolve each cycle of abuse, predatory behavior, each layer of emotional pain, all levels of mental instability and unconsciousness for the greater good of Mother Earth. By the power of Source Energy, may all be transformed by the power of love, allowing each person to respect themselves and the sovereignty of every heart — in honor of the awakening Divine I AM. And so it is.”
All for Love,
