Whatcha Watching

“The media only writes about the sinners and the scandals, but that’s normal, because a tree that falls makes more noise than a forest that grows.” – Pope Francis

Have you ever wondered how the thing called “news” came to be and why it for the most part focuses on what is happening in the world that is “bad” or dramatic? I certainly have! Someone once said to me that it is because that is what the majority of humans want to hear and that we wouldn’t listen if they reported the inspirational uplifting stories. The news stations get more views if they are reporting the drama, the trauma, and stories of conflict. I agree that we do need to know about events that happen in our world but many years ago the news channels started a trend of repeating the horrors and traumatic events as much as they possibly could in the span of a day. You may remember this happening during 911. That’s when I started noticing it. And people were glued to their televisions to watch it over and over again until we could see it with our eyes closed. Since that time, this has become the normal M.O. for presenting news.

Dear Angels, I believe we need to be informed about what is happening in our world and not just bury our heads in the sand, pretending that everything is perfect. We do live in a world of contrast where there will always be opposing views as well as darkness and light. How do we balance tuning into what is happening without dwelling on the things that are of concern to us and letting that affect our vibrations in a negative way?

Dear Ones, indeed you do need to be aware of happenings in your world. However, the investment of time in reporting and discussing violence has boomeranged upon you and left you vulnerable, angry and afraid. That fear pervades your land and affects the collective energy field. Whatever you choose to fill your mind with is going to show up in a bigger way in your lives. Many are so caught up in watching the drama unfold that they cannot see the reality of this happening in the world. They just keep asking “why does this keep happening?” while in reality it is being created from the multitudes who are focusing only on the violence and hatred. You can change this, Dear Ones. It is a choice you make daily of how you will spend your time and where your energy will flow. What will you create today? Will it be more strife, confusion, war, hatred? Or will you choose this day to make a difference in calling forth the light into a world so focused on the darkness? It truly is your decision. Indeed, a tree falling makes a great noise and may receive a lot of attention but a multitude of trees sprouting up in the world put forth a powerful healing and helpful energy. Be a part of the forest and the falling tree.

Dear Angels, thank you. I love you. Namaste y’all.

Today, I promise to stand strong like a tree and let my light shine out into the darkness instead of adding to the contrast in the world.
