Meditate, pray, or send light

images (3)It has been week of catastrophic earth changes with the 40-year-dormant Calbuco volcano erupting in Chile and spewing the air with toxic gas and dropping heavy ash. As a result, there have been mass evacuations and concerns about contaminated water along with cancelled airline flights.

In Nepal, there has been an earthquake of 7.8 magnitude, leaving, at this count, over 1000 people dead, many injured, and untold devastation. And this earthquake triggered an avalanche in the Himalayas that resulted in more deaths and damaged encampments at the base of Mount Everest.

We watch, read, and listen to these news reports, taking in the details and the toll of these (and other) cataclysmic events. We are armchair witnesses to their pain, fear, shock, grief, havoc, and ruin. And our hearts break. What can we do?

We can meditate. Focus our attention,  open our hearts, and stream beams of love and light to our global neighbors in Chile and Nepal.

And we can pray. This does not have to be the kneel-down, hands-clasped prayer of churches. This can be your conversation with whatever face or name you give the Divine. We can pray that those impacted might find safety so they can take a breath; connection so they feel less alone; and whatever help and assistance is needed. And, as always, we can pray for peace of heart and peace of mind.

Life gets faster and the world becomes smaller. We are all connected on this blue-green marble we call home. Let us join our hearts and send prayers, healing light and love to our neighbors in need. You have no idea of the impact of your kindhearted actions. All this good heart energy makes a huge difference.

In oneness, we proceed.

PS. I look forward to meeting up with all of you in the healing room in the ethers.

    Dear Adele, you touched my heart. My sister and small family lives in Chie, Santiago miles away from the volcanos, however the ashes are getting there also. The devastation is enormous and not only people are suffering but all kind of animals. I was there for the biggest earthquake a few years ago. And now this. I feel for my people and also for Nepal. Yes, let’s get together in the healing room in the ethers.

    You are always in my mind dear Adele. Your friend always Sara Woessner

    Thank you for calling for prayer. There is really so little we can control except how we react to the world around us. I will pray for those who are devastated by these horrors of nature.
    It is a small, small world and I believe in the limit of our understanding and the reality of a divine plan.
    You are the conscience for us.
    Thank you.

    Thank you, Adele. It had been a tender time around this world we share. Healing thoughs and healing prayers, yes. They matter. Some of my friends are still awaiting news about dear ones in Nepal. Others are breathing lighter for the news they heard of loved ones who are safe even as their hearts break for the loved ones of others who did not. We are all of us connected, and it matters that we care. It is a small family, that of earth kind. May there be healing to those hurt and comfort to those hurting. And may we all know more connection–compassion connects us far more than hate ever can separate us. We are, essentially, all one.
