What Can We Do About the Gulf Oil Spill?

I grew up on the Gulf Coast and I love it there. I've been feeling so sad, about this. Now here is something that gives me hope and it also inspires me to DO something. I suggest we watch this video, and then send the link to it to president@whitehouse.gov - and to our Senators and Congressmen - and to our friends, asking them to do the same.  

And below the video you will also find some suggestions I've collected as inspirations for prayers and focused, shared intentions for the healing and transformation of this situation.

Things each of us can do by ourselves, or with others - Prayer and Visualization

1 - From a letter from Chief Arvol Looking Horse:
We ask for prayers that the oil spill, this bleeding, will stop. That the winds stay calm to assist in the work. Pray for the people to be guided in repairing this mistake, and that we may also seek to live in harmony, as we make the choice to change the destructive path we are on.

2 - http://unitywave.com/ is calling for focused intention, and has created a Unity Wave blog-talk radio broadcast which you can listen to: http://www.blogtalkradio.com/unitywave

World Wide Conscious Intention Focus on the Gulf Oil Spill. Inviting all Voices, Hearts, and Minds for Restoration and Peace in the Gulf. The oil spill in the Gulf is a disaster for the ecosystem and all its life forms. This is a call to action for people of every faith, creed, tribe, nation and origin to focus the power of group intention to restore this area. You can contribute by actively and consciously holding a focused intention. Together we create a powerful group synergy, the Unity Wave.

There will be a second Unity Wave broadcast on June 5th

3 - This ties in with the work of Dr. Emoto, who has studied the effects of thoughts and prayers upon water, and has many amazing microscopic photos of water before and after prayer. Very beautiful evidence of the miraculous nature of prayer. Here is one website:
Just google “Dr. Emoto” to find more.

4 - The NY Times has a photo essay of reader’s photos of the Gulf oil spill. The last photo is quite beautiful…. a line of people from a local church standing hand-in-hand by the shore, facing the water, “…praying that the oil slick would dissipate… And that it wouldn’t create any ecological or economic problems for our coast. We know the Lord can work miracles and has our best interests at heart.’ Here is a link to that picture: http://www.nytimes.com/slideshow/2010/05/26/us/20100527-gulf-usergen-slideshow-9.html

5 - Ho’oponopono for the Gulf (Video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iTJ7LS8FcVM) . Ho’oponopono is a Hawaiian ceremony of healing and forgiveness. This video doesn’t go into too much detail about it, but there have been some rather miraculous results achieved using this ceremony. It’s too much information for me to go into right now, but if you are interested, just google ho’oponopono to find out more. “I’m sorry, please forgive us, thank you, we love you” for the waters.

I appreciate all prayers and shared intentions for the restoration of life-supporting conditions there, in the ocean, for all the Beings who live in the ocean, and for the land, and all the Beings along the coast – human, animal and plant.

Thank you and Blessings,
Shakura Cathryn
