July 17: A Ripple Effect

Have you ever tossed a rock into the water and watched as ripples form in perfect circles and travel outward?  That one action leads to many, long reaching effects.  Our lives are like this.  Each thought we think, each word we speak and each action we take has an energetic ripple effect.  That effect touches the lives of those around us, directly, and the lives of others, indirectly, through those around us.

Even if we don’t realize it, even if we don’t intend it, our thoughts, words, and actions effect the lives of others.  This, in turn, can cause others to create their own ripple effects.  When we share positivity, optimism, and creativity with others, they tend to do the same things with the people in their lives.  When we are negative, condescending, critical, or judgmental, that energy spreads like ripples, as well.

We absorb the energies and feelings of others we are close to, whether it is closeness in proximity, or closeness in love-even though the beloved may be far away.  Others absorb OUR energies in the same manner.  This is why the teaching, BE THE CHANGE YOU WISH TO SEE IN THE WORLD, is so deeply important.  One small shift in our thinking and perspectives may then trigger the chemical and hormonal cascade needed to create a higher level of thinking, speaking, and doing, which in turn triggers a series of events in OUR lives and in the lives of those around us, automatically then triggering like thoughts, feelings, energies and events in the lives of the people THEY know.  Everything effects everything, and though we may be incapable of controlling anything or anyone but ourselves, our “self” is certainly capable of influencing, impacting, and empowering others.

One, small act of kindness can alter the entire trajectory of another’s existence.  One, well-placed, caring thought or idea, planted as a seed in the mind garden of another, may impact someone three generations from now in a profound way, completely altering not just THAT persons life, but the lives of everyone they know, changing the world for the better, forever more.

We can live in fear, or we can live coming from a place of LOVE.  One way usually results in unhappiness, darkness, anxiety, depression, being easily controlled by others, and hopelessness, while the other way usually results in creativity, enlightenment, joy, kindness, and HEALING.

It is useful to experience these polar opposite results for ourselves in life, so we can decide what we want more of and what we want less of, and realize for ourselves which actions produce the desired results.  

WE ARE 100% RESPONSIBLE FOR OUR THOUGHTS, BELIEFS, AND FEELINGS.  These things are NOBODY else’s job.  What energies we produce and project onto others is fully within our control.

Our actions, words, habits, practices, perspectives, and teachings, will cause ripple effects that will echo throughout the eternities to come, effecting centuries of generations.  The level of healing we experience in this life will be energetically, vibrationally, mentally, emotionally, genetically, and physically passed down to our posterity.

It is time for us ALL to begin to TRULY heal, causing the necessary ripples that will empower others to do the same.

It all begins within US.  Are we capable of loving, accepting, appreciating, and healing OURSELVES? Until we can do this better for OURSELVES, we render ourselves useless and incapable of teaching OTHERS how to do it for THEMSELVES.  I think we can ALL agree that this is ESPECIALLY important for parents and parents-to-be to remember and work on.

Today I will remember that each thought, word, and action I take has an effect on myself and others.  I will choose positivity, optimism, and creativity.  I will choose LOVE.  I will choose HEALING.

The ripples we create in this life will echo throughout the eternities to come, living on through generations.  What results will your ripples cause?
