Becoming a Guardian of Our Earth
Can you see yourself as a Guardian of our Earth who assists in its healing and its peacemaking? You do not have to wait till Earth Day to connect to Mother Earth and make your commitment to assist our planet and humanity today. Let us make our world a greener and more balanced, peaceful place to live. I can make a difference each day and so can you.
You may wonder what you can do to assist our planet and humanity. Here are some powerful steps to get you started:
1. Visualize each day how you would like your world to be.
2. Put all your energy into positive good thoughts and let negative thoughts fall away. Positive thoughts attract positive happenings and positive energies. Your thoughts and actions are important to all of us.
3. Feel your peace within and know that this is the truth.
4. Extend that peace to all you meet by viewing each person, plant and animal as a Beloved one who deeply connects with you.
5. Send thoughts, prayers of love and peace to all by expanding your prayers to include everything on our planet.
6. Feel the love in your heart touching the hearts of everyone, every thing on the planet.
Remember your feelings create your manifestations. As you integrate into your life the actions that will assist all humanity, you will begin to feel a beautiful connection to all, a natural connection that blossoms and expands through love. Your daily life will transform immediately if you take these six steps. Begin within yourself to feel the connection with the earth and spread that love to others.
On this day, think about conscious actions you can take in your life to become a Guardian of our Earth
- take the bus to work
- compost your garbage
- use less water
- grow a vegetable garden or begin a community garden
- pick up trash in your neighborhood
- turn off your lights that you are not using
There are many ways to improve the quality of our Earth. Make a list with your children and family. Share it with you friends. What are you going to do to show how much you care?
In Meaford, participate in our Reuse Fair on Saturday, April 26th. See the Wish List below this article and bring them to the Meaford & St.Vincent Community Centre on Collingwood St. Non-profit organizations need theses items and it’s a great way for you to recycle items you no longer need.
Thank you for being a Guardian of our Earth.
May Peace Prevail on Earth!
