Although this time of year is lovely, a time for counting blessings, gathering together, spending time with loved ones, having good food, having happy, sparkly times, it can also be bittersweet and incredibly hard at times too. The pain of loss, poverty, family problems, loneliness, etc, can be much more intense at this time of year… Sending lots of love to those who need it over the festive times, and thinking of all those I’ve loved and lost, and whose spirits live on… ♡❆♥︎
Iona and I have just spent a few moments in silent contemplation, with candles and a singing bowl, sending out reiki, love and compassion to those affected by the earthquake in Nepal.
At times of natural disaster such as this, we can feel helpless and overwhelmed, but I truly believe that we can make a difference by paying our respects in our own way. In doing this, we are sending out positive energy, which surely can do no harm.
I am going to make a conscious effort to send out love and compassion whenever possible, to wrap a healing comfort blanket around the world – not just to those in Nepal, but to everyone everywhere in need of love and support.
It is heartwarming to think that many other people around the world will also be making a difference in their own way too… I am also honoured that my daughter is happy to join in with me and really believes in this too. As parents, if we set a good example for our children, the river of love and compassion will continue to flow through the different generations, its momentum and purpose growing ever stronger… ♡
~ ♡ with heartfelt love and compassion ~ ♡
