GHR 2019 Q3: Intention/Connection

In the first quarter of 2019 we paid attention and then we focused. Now, if we have done what we need for ourselves it is time to join together and make connections. If our individual energy is harmonious we will be stronger in our circles. This focus has a double meaning. We need to see that we are all connected-as science is proving. We also have to be intentional to make connections with others to support, heal and create loving spaces, Sacred spaces. We need this now more than ever.

Blessings and gratitude for all you do to make this world a better place.

Looking into the eyes of another, may I be open to, and affirm, their true self.

As others look to me, may I have the courage to ask for what I need.

As our mutual friendship develops, may we trust, forgive and help heal each other so the energy of our circle ripples into the world.

Ideas for ambiance: Everyone carries a stone with a word that is important to them written on it. As a person passes another, they trade stones. At the end you can process about what stones they received, what it meant to them and what they ended up with. Hopefully a feeling of connection in the circle will develop and each person will feel supported and heard.

Turning to one another is as simple as a heart-felt conversation to restore hope.  It is not our differences that divide us. It is our judgment about each other. Connecting through conversation is the natural way we as humans think together. Conversation takes time. We need time to sit together, to listen, to worry and to dream together.

As this age of turmoil tears us apart, we need to reclaim time to be together. When we begin listening to each other, and when we talk about things that matter to us, the world begins to change.
Reality doesn’t change itself. We need to act.  —Jo Ann Mast
