One week ago, a 7.0 magnitude earthquake struck the country of Haiti.
Today, I listened in on a guided meditation intended to help the victims of the Haiti earthquake, and the person leading the meditation started out by asking everyone attending to close their eyes, relax…and visualize the horror, devastation, and death happening in Haiti.
I’m not kidding. Believe me, I wish I was!
This person, believing they were well-meaning, was trying to drag us all into pity, sadness, and feeling sorry for the people of Haiti, thinking that would help. I realized it wouldn’t and knew that was *my cue* to leave that meditation. There is NO point in visualizing more horror~for anyone. It will never help them!
Instead, I sat in my office, quieted my mind, got into a heart-coherent state, and visualized Haiti fully recovered, totally rebuilt, healed and healthy, the sun shining and hearts full of love. I saw the streets clean and citizens feeling appreciation for the out-pouring of love after the earthquake, knowing that their country is doing much better than ever *because of the earthquake*. I allowed myself to stay there, visualizing this wonderful feeling, and then I felt that positive energy going to everyone in Haiti. I felt them benefiting immediately.
Why did I visualize something good, positive and uplifting rather than something sorrowful, pitiful and depressing? Because I know that as I hold *anything* or *anyone* as the focus of my attention, I am at the same time sending my vibration to them.
This is because the Law of Attraction is always lining up similar vibrational frequencies~like a universal tuning fork. When I hold someone as my focus of attention while worrying, I’m sending that energy to them. When I hold someone as my focus while I am angry, I’m sending that energy to them. What energy would be most helpful to Haiti right now~your worry, fear, and pity, or your heart-felt love, appreciation, and hope for their future?
I know that when someone is in trouble, pain, or difficulty, it is far more beneficial to them to imagine them whole, healthy, and happy! This is why affirmative group prayer is so powerful, and known to create miraculous healings. This is why Ho’oponopono is so powerful in healing energy across all time and space ~something that the Ancient Ha’waiian’s understood without the benefit of Quantum Physics.
The more people who hold Haiti in a positive place now, the faster and better they will recover. Abraham explains it this way…
You cannot get sick enough to help sick people get better. You cannot get poor enough to help poor people thrive. It is only in your thriving that you have anything to offer anyone. If you’re wanting to be of an advantage to others, be as tapped in, turned in, turned on as you can possibly be.
~Abraham, excerpted from the San Diego, CA on Saturday, February 15th, 2003 workshop
In 2010, Abraham would probably say something more like, Get in the Vortex before you hold anyone you care about as your focus of attention. The Vortex is Abraham’s term for a heart-coherent state, that state of appreciation and love you feel when you interact with pets and loved ones. The HeartMath Institute in Boulder Creek, CA has research proving that when we are in a heart-coherent state, we have a positive effect on those around us and to whom we are connected. Since we are connected through time and space, that means we can positively (or negatively) affect others by the feelings we hold in our hearts when we think of them.
If giving money feels good and heart-coherent to you, then do it. The money received from people holding anyone in high-regard, with love and appreciation, is very powerful and will create miracles. If you are not in a heart-coherent state about donating, please spare them your pity-money. Money imbued with hope, love, and appreciation will be so much more beneficial for their total recovery.
If you cannot get yourself to feel good for the people of Haiti, feeling stuck on the negative media images, then your work is to first clean up that vibration. Do what you need to do to get to a positive, loving, healing place on this subject so your actions will have a positive impact.
Look back on your own life, your own struggles, and remember how often those times were the catalyst for wonderful experiences that could not have happened otherwise. (See my post “Everything You Experience…Is A Blessing!“) Shift your own energy to a positive place in regard to Haiti, THEN, I ask you to join me in envisioning wholeness, recovery, and hopeful future for the people of Haiti.
And, then, send your money to them from the place of hope, love and appreciation so it will actually make a positive difference.
By the way, the same guidance goes for helping anyone you know who is unhealthy, struggling, out-of-work, or going through a hard time. You are of greater help to others when you are in a positive place, and hold them as the object of your uplifted vibration.
