"What the world needs now is Love, Sweet Love..." I heard this song the other day and it really resonates with the present moment. Each time thoughts of fear begin to sneak in, I bring my attention to the heart space and a take a long deep breath...
The month of March reminds me of LOVE. The color green symbolizes the Fourth of the Seven Chakras. The 7 Chakras are the energetic centers in our body in which energy flows through. The word 'chakra' is derived from the sanskrit word meaning 'wheel'. Translated from Hindu it means 'Wheel of spinning Energy'. A chakra is a vortex-like, powerhouse of energy. The heart chakra is the wellspring of love, warmth, compassion, and joy located in the center of the chest at the heart level. Also called "Anahata" it is the center of your deep connection with other beings, caring and compassion, your feelings of self-love, altruism, generosity, kindness, and respect.
Turn off the news, don't click on that Facebook article warning you about all the things you should be afraid of...choose LOVE, Not fear
There is another way of looking at the world. You can shift your perspective of the world in both its outer and inner aspects. Loving thoughts and peace of mind is an internal matter. It must begin with your own thoughts and extend outward.
"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are here for a reason. Your playing small doesn't serve the world. There's nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are born to manifest the glory that is within us. It's not just in some of us. It's in everyone, and, as we let our light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others."
