The True Faces of Refugees

In this chaotic and chilling political environment, we as a nation have stepped into as the new President has taken office, leaves a lingering feeling of sadness and powerlessness. As a Mexican-American living in the U.S.- the land of the free and the land of immigrants- I am afraid. I had not experienced this type of fear first hand till this past November 2016, when Trump was elected to the presidency. According to the Southern poverty law center a rise in rascist hate crimes have been recorded and fear has taken the country into its grips.  I had read it many times on the news, in our own American history during the civil rights movement. An empath by nature- my heart would cry tears of sadness for my brothers and sisters who endured so much in a very dark and unjust history. Not to mention our Jewish brothers and sisters who endured the largest extermination, one group of people had ever encountered in the past. Our brothers and sisters in the Middle east and Africa suffer on a daily basis and must live in a world of terror, and so many just want their families to be safe and sound and put them out of harm’s way. So many refugees who have been persecuted and terrorized, such as Yaman’s story of survival of how he and his family made it out alive when others were not so lucky.

We must realize- even though we look different- we are more similar than what we think. We all want to live in a loving, accepting and just world- isn’t that land the United States? A land that in its very foundation- laying down its first cornerstone- paved the nation into a democratic land, free from persecution, freedom from religious persecution and freedom of thought and free to be.  Not one person in this great nation has more rights than others to be here…this is a country of immigrants, whether your a first, second, third generation American, we are all immigrants…it is a country of dreams, a country of freedom, a country of hope, which seems to shatter as the days progress into this presidency that seems to be filled with a racist, misogynist, xenophobic rhetoric- a rhetoric that eerily mirrors Nazi Germany.

No matter who you voted for, what your politics are, at this point, that doesn’t matter, what matters is that we shift as people, and shift this feeling of hate, into a feeling of LOVE.

Just as Martin Luther King Jr. said not so long ago- his words still resonate in our psyche and memory. Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.” – Martin Luther King, Jr.

We must remember these words now…be love rather than hate, be accepting rather than rejecting, be kind rather than mean-spirited, be forgiving rather than punishing, be light rather than darkness, be one rather than dividing. Becuase the sooner we realize we can be one nation, one world living in peace and love, and the only way to do that is by accepting each other as we are, with all out beautiful differences that make this world so diverse and so unique. We are a beautiful rainbow in all its splendor. Let us come together as ONE world tribe to tear down walls and build bridges instead.

With love and light,

The Mystery of Water

http://thespiritscience.net/2012/10/14/water-the-great-mystery-full-documentary/

Water has such amazing forces- from healing, cleansing, to nurturing. This amazing documentary explains the mystery of water and the power of prayer, mantras, meditation and intention! It is Just amazing!! Watch it before it get’s removed again from youtube.

Our friends from Spirit Science talked about this on their website and put the link to the documentary. If you still have not checked them out- I highly recommend them! Their movies are truly transformational!

As we know the power of intent, of words, prayer and mantras are vibrating, like everything else in this universe. The higher the vibration, the more align we are with Source/God/Creator, the less their vibration, the less we are aligned with Source.

So words- good and bad- can affect our environment and reality. In the documentary you will see how this is proven scientifically by Dr. Emoto, who has been doing research on water for decades. We can see how “I love you” vs “I hate you” can have totally different outcomes in our environment and reality. We see how the power of words can change the water itself.

Words can literally create whatever intention we give them. So next time you state something to the universe, make sure that your words are beautiful, full of loving intent.

Hope you enjoy this documentary!

Love and light,

Our feelings impact our reality

Love and Smile

Research in psychology has shown that our feelings can very much impact our reality and the opportunities that are sent to our lives can sprout out from feeling “unlucky”, “lucky” or “blessed.”

Psychologist Richard Wiseman spent years researching scientifically why some people live luckier or happier lives. His research  analyzed how feelings affect our lives. The results of his study showed that  those participants that found themselves unlucky are people who are generally more tense and filled with anxiety feelings. These feelings then disrupted their ability to notice opportunities in their life.

However, those participants that felt “Lucky” or” blessed”, on the other hand, had feelings which involved being relaxed and open. This meant they were able to see what is really there in their lives and recognized opportunities.

This is just a mere example of how emotions and thoughts affect our lives and reality. So when in doubt, just wake up with a smile and see how your entire day will shift and you will have a blessed and happy day! Live every experience with a smile and realize how you can change the world with just one smile.
