How are you? How is your precious heart doing?
It's a wild time to be alive, isn't it?
I've been feeling the wildness of it all deep in my heart.
SO very deep.
The activist in me has been wanting to rage and shout from the rooftops about the injustice of the world, while the empathic, sensitive me is like "Can we just go back to bed, please?".
It's almost too much to bare. Almost.
I've been stepping up and facing my own fears in new ways everyday.
The biggest challenge is being in the space between.
When the world feels like it's breaking your heart into a million pieces, while also feeling the profound truth that it's an amazingly beautiful world, overflowing with love in so many ways!
Walking the in-between. Being in the moment. Feeling grateful and fed-up at the same time...
And now with "I Stand For Love" Day just around the corner (Monday, August 8th!), I've been experiencing the overwhelming potential of what it means to create a worldwide movement.
I know the time is now to truly put our hearts into it.
I mean the possibilities are endless, right?
And this freakin' world needs love like never before!!!
So when someone says "Hey, I want to participate", "I want to show up in this way", "I'm here to help make this happen", I feel honored and humbled and so grateful.
I extend a deep bow to each person who is stepping up to spread the love right now.
This is our time. This is when it's needed the most.
Love can heal.
Love can transform.
Love is the most powerful force in the Universe.
I think you know this already and that's why you're reading these words.
So I'd love to share a few ways that YOU can feel the love and the hope increasing while you balance in the in-between space of your own wild life...
First, I was interviewed by an amazing woman named Lauren Herrera for a wonderful podcast called Love is a Verb.
We talked A LOT about how creating love on the inside (in your own heart) can ripple out into the world.
We had such an invigorating conversation that we decided to do a 4 part series dedicated to the 8 steps of the I Stand For Love Manifesto!
You can catch the interview HERE and stay tuned for the 1st part of the series that airs on Monday, July 18th.
It's powerful stuff to uplift and inspire the Love Warrior in YOU!
Second, will you help spread the word about "I Stand For Love Day"?
It's designed to be a simple call to action to unite people from all over the world that believe in the power of love.
Let's see how many hearts and minds we can unite this year!
Please share this page with the details anywhere you can:
There will also be a Worldwide meditation going on LIVE!
You can share that with your peeps too:
Let's come together and remember that LOVE REALLY is the answer! We can do this!
You can even download cool images to use on Social media.
This is a grassroots movement and YOU and I are the change we have been waiting for!
When we get into action, we can feel like we are part of something greater. Even though our hearts may be aching and we may raise our fists to the heavens screaming "why, why, why?", we have to keep on keepin' on AND try to do better by the next generation.
When we unite in the name of love, we cause a ripple of energy that goes out into the world.
This ripple could be the very thing that lifts us up and heals the broken pieces of our hearts.
"If such a consciousness truly is set loose in the world, nothing will be the same. It will free us to be in a sacred body, on a sacred planet,
in sacred communion with all of it.
It will infect the universe with holiness.
We will discover the Divine deep within the earth and the cells of our bodies, and we will love her there with all our hearts and all our souls and all our minds." ~Sue Monk Kidd
May we all rise up in love.
May we find a way to unite.
May the next generations inherit a world where love and compassion is taught and celebrated.
May we walk through the in-between times allowing love to guide our hearts.
Thank you for being alive, precious soul that you are.
Thank you for joining me in this Love Revolution!
