Ours is not the task of fixing the entire world all at once, but of stretching out to mend the part of the world that is within our reach. Any small, calm thing that one soul can do to help another soul, to assist some portion of this poor suffering world, will help immensely. 

~Clarissa Pinkola Estes “We Were Made For These Times”

This quote touched my heart deeply.  I encourage you to look up and read the entire piece.  I don’t know when it was written but it surely speaks to this time.

In these challenging and sometimes difficult times, I think we are all seeking ways to find and create peace, kindness and love in our world.  If we look at how big the problems are, it can be overwhelming.  At those times, I find it so helpful to focus on specific things I can do.  Sometimes it’s a task or something in the physical world.  And sometimes it is sending out love, prayers and intentions to people and situations.  Sometimes it is sitting in a chair on my porch and spending time with oak, flower and herbs.

Self-care is so important and valuable right now.  Many of us were taught to be busy and do, do, do.  This is a time to rest, be in nature, find quiet, listen for the flow in our lives.  Then we will know when it is time for action and when it is time for being.

From Gaia, June 20, 2020

Dear ones, beloved of my heart,

I know that these are challenging times.  Chaos, stress, fear, uncertainty.  It can be difficult to hold your center and trust that all is unfolding in divine timing and divine order.  It can also be easy to overlook the good, the beauty and the love that is all around.

This is a birthing time and birth can be messy, painful and nerve-wracking.  It is a time to breathe slowly and deeply.  A time to surrender to the movement and the anticipation of new life.

You are held in tender love and calm assurance.  Sit quietly and you will feel it all around you and within you.  This is not a time to rush about, doing.  It is a time to rest and be.  Any needed doing will emerge naturally from this quiet space.

Always, I remind you to ask for help from your Unseen friends who love you so much and want to help.  We cannot violate your free will.  You need to ask and be assured that we are ever near, loving you and ready to assist and cocreate with you.

This is like a major remodel or even a new construction.  Things get torn up for a while and it can be quite disruptive.  But the blueprints guide the process and eventually things come together with exciting results, new beauty and function.

You are held in immense and even incomprehensible love.  Just allow it to flow to you and into you.  Then you will feel peaceful amidst the turmoil and changes.  Rest in this love and open yourself to it.  Know that you are held in the heart of Gaia and you are safe, protected and sheltered in this tender love.

I love you, dear ones.  I am Gaia, your Earth Mother, your friend.
