People keep saying they are “helpless” to do anything after last week’s events in Connecticut, so we want to say a quick word about mindset & empowerment to refocus on the positive vs. the negative.
That is the furthest from the truth. You can & SHOULD do something!
This illusion of “disempowered” mindset in everything is one of the biggest problems in society today.
Three weeks ago I helped to save a 6 month old puppy from euthanasia I saw online that I didn’t even know or come in contact with, simply because I decided to NOT feel helpless, not look for someone ELSE to “do something”, and just take action.
I focused on her because she had an injured leg, and being rescuers ourselves of a dog with an injury from the euthanasia list, Damian and I know too well these are the first animals they tend to put down because their mindset is no one will take them and they tend to assume the worst case scenario of the potential injury vs. the best case scenario.
I spent a day and a half on and off networking online through emails and phone calls, and just that push of focused energy and caring for a small puppy I would never see in person or know was enough to get to a rescue that was willing and able to come transport her out of the shelter, off the death list, and into a vet who granted her free care for her injury.
As it turned out, we came to find, because one person was willing to care, believe, and try, that her injury was not at all as bad as the shelter and all the people online seeing her post were originally choosing to assume about her condition, that it wouldn’t require surgery, but just a bit of rest and non-use and she would be healthy as a bug.
Now she is on her way to recovery, happy, playing, bopping around with a pretty pink cast on one leg with an expression of joy on her face from the pictures they sent me, and headed to her forever home alive and well, as she so deserves!
That is one thing, but just imagine if we all did one positive thing each day collectively in our own way, what that is adding up to, vs. falling into this illusion of a mental trap that, “I am too powerless to do anything” so I’ll just wait for someone else to do it who is more powerful than me, yet that someone else is only more powerful because they choose a different mindset.
When we realize our power as one person, harness it & care enough to take matters into our own hands; when we recognize that “someone else” who needs to create change is ME, in anything, than change becomes possible.
This is essentially the whole premise by which Damian and I felt compelled enough to leave our former lives behind to create e3 Energy Evolved as a platform for sharing natural health and energy strategy human body education with the world, after beating auto immune disease and metabolic damage naturally. If we don’t create the change we wish for others and this world in health, whose responsibility is it?
Also, God/the universe, whichever you believe, is LOVE. It’s our collective, collaborative consciousness.
“You cannot call out to God only after a tragedy; He must be a part of all our days.” When we focus on minds & hearts on love each day, not just after tragedy, our daily actions follow, violence lessens, fear lessens, love is magnified. Each time we choose and teach love, we negate violence.
But when we continually choose a culture of glorified violence, focusing minds, time & money on it thru media, movies, video games, amplified by disconnectedness, then we get MORE of what we choose to focus on. Law of attraction – for the last 30+ years that is what our culture has been focusing more and more on.
3. If you put your mind, money & time into observing forms of news media that glorify these incidents & only teach the next person that committing violence is the quickest way to gain attention, stop today.
4. If you have been allowing forms of media to disconnect you from regular physical, emotional & mental connection with your family, community, self, or kids, stop today.
What are some other ideas you can start today using mindset strategy in your own life with yourself, your family, your children, your neighbors, your community to create positive loving change away from violence?
Choosing simpler living? Donating more of your time to help others? Giving back? Committing to say a kind unexpected word to a stranger every day for 30 days? The possibilities are endless, share below.
