I got home Wednesday night (6/16) from my amazing trip…….. it was a beautiful experience, most of which is another story. One of the dances we did at the Dance camp was a blessing for the water, and I was just crying and crying. I grew up on the Gulf coast of Texas which was not so long ago decimated by Hurricane Ike. I have so many wonderful memories of the beach and the water of the Gulf. Now the Gulf is being poisoned by this oil. It makes me so sad.
On the way home I was listening to my self-recorded CD’s of favorite songs, and a beautiful song came on that begins…
Standing by the ocean,
Watch it tear away the shore….
And again I was just crying and crying and I just wanted to keep driving and driving to get to whatever is left of those coastal areas before the oil reaches my beloved places. Apparently the oil is moving east more than west, and has not reached Texas yet, but it seems a matter of time. And, of course I am grieving for the entire Gulf, all the places, animals, plants and land already affected.
Below is something that came to me yesterday from the World Gratitude folks… you might also appreciate it.
Today, we invite our World Gratitude family to join together, to leverage our genius and the power of Love to transmute the destructive forces of ignorance, greed and separation that are at play in the Gulf of Mexico ... and beyond.
5 years ago, World Gratitude was birthed out of a vision, one of creating a 'World Wide Wave of Gratitude and Re-connecting our water bodies to Love'. Since this time, we have been becoming Masters in the art of using Gratitude to empower the Self, experience wholeness, facilitate authentic, right-living and to cooperate with our Beloveds, world-wide, to gracefully move through the great changes of our time.
We have been preparing ourselves for events such as this ... and the time is NOW to come together, in service, compassion and courage ... and with great Faith hold a Space of Love, Gratitude and Grace!
We see this as an opportunity to deepen Self Mastery, by employing our genius and authentic power in a life-affirming way ... by being Grateful NOW for wholeness, purity and recapitulation of the water bodies in the Gulf, as well as across the face of creation.
Dr. Masaru Emoto - author scientist, and humanitarian - has shared a brief, yet powerful prayer and we are passing it along here as a focal point, a space of conscious creation allowing us to move past fear, judgment and retribution into Unity, Harmony and Wholeness. This prayer is structured using Ho'oponopono and is directed initially at WATER - the element connecting ALL Life on the planet. Water ... the carrier of Spirit and the flow-er of Love!!!
Dr. Masaru Emoto's Healing Prayer for the Gulf:
"I send the energy of love and gratitude to the water and all the living creatures in the Gulf of Mexico and its surroundings.
To the whales, dolphins, pelicans, fish, shellfish, plankton, coral, algae, and all living creatures . . .
I am sorry.
Please forgive me.
I love you. "
And these words from a Beloved who forwarded this prayer and invitation to us: "We are passing this request to people who we believe might be willing to participate in this prayer, to set an intention of love and healing that is so large, so overwhelming that we can perform a miracle in the Gulf of Mexico.
We are not powerless. We are powerful. Our united energy, speaking this prayer daily...multiple times daily....can literally shift the balance of destruction that is happening.
We don't have to know how......we just have to recognize that the power of love is greater than any power active in the Universe today.
Please join us in oft repeating this healing prayer of of Dr. Emoto's. And feel free to copy and paste this to send it around the planet. Let's take charge, and do our own clean up!
And so it is! Pass it on."
