Where did you go?

shutterstock_421660141aSo, yesterday I woke up and I didn’t feel like writing a newsletter. It was the day after all the election stuff, I didn’t sleep well the night before, and I made the conscious choice to forgo writing to you.

And it made an impact on me.

I’ve made this commitment to write almost daily emails and blogs and I’ve been loving it. The comments, the positive responses, and the support I’ve been receiving about these emails has blown me away.

I really love the love!

So, when, in my slightly funky mood yesterday I decided not to write, I forgot that that would also mean I wouldn’t be hearing from you.

It was so weird. I really missed you!

It felt almost… empty and I realized how much I really value the connection we’ve created.

But it did give me some time to think and feel through my morning (when normally I would have been writing).

The energy in the world is so unstable right now (and that’s probably an understatement!). Many are finding themselves pulled into the negative part of that instability.

But there are other ways.

Instead of hanging out in that icky energy (which only strengthens it), I invite you to move toward the positive, awesomeness that is always within our reach.

Doing this will mean something different for each person.

For some they’ll dance around in their bedroom singing to Madonna while others will go for a walk in the woods with their dogs.

Others may sit in silent meditation or channel all of their love into writing.

It doesn’t matter what you do, only that it raises your emotions to a positive place – full of love.

Because that’s how were going to shift this chaos – by holding ourselves and everyone else (yep, EVERYONE) in unconditional love.

One of my very favorite books may help you understand this idea. In 2001, David R. Hawkins wrote, “Power versus Force” which focuses on the difference in vibration between power and force.

It’s a little heady (they guy is a university professor), but if you can get around that, what he is saying is profound to our human experience today.

The power of unconditional love is where I’m headed – and I do hope you’ll join me!

Love and Light,
Danielle

    Thank you Danielle for the balanced, non-preachy suggestions for handling today’s energy challenges. (Not that you’ve ever been preachy). I’ll dust off my copy of the book and dance a little 😉

    I’ve always believed we all need to be the change for a kinder, more peaceful, more loving society. Every action we take is like a ripple in a pond, our thoughts and actions spreading ever outward. Instead of torching buildings and hurling rocks why not volunteer for a cause you feel deeply about? Don’t just talk – walk the talk. I’m going to be donating food for families in need this Thanksgiving and Christmas and toys for children. In my every day life I greet everyone with a smile and treat everyone with the same unconditional respect and dignity that is their birthright. We shouldn’t reserve that only for those who look or think or act like us.
    Hate is poison and love is the antidote. You may think your actions don’t matter – they’re too small but just think of the kind of world we could have if every person consciously decided to do their part. Make your ripple count!!

    I enjoy your daily emails too, so please keep them coming. And on those days when we don’t feel like staying in our routine and doing what we normally do, that’s probably when we need to most of all! I was also exhausted and drained the past couple of days and I made an effort to stay away from news and social media to let everyone vent and get it out of their systems. We need to stay strong and focused and remember that those of us who are a little more enlightened than the rest were put here in this place and time for things just like this. The world needs lighthouses right now and that’s what I believe we can be. Stay strong and shine on people 🙂 We’re all in this together and that’s how we will get through it.

    I’m not in America but was also in a bit of a funk (too long to go into details). But I made a decision and decided to trust my instinct and say yes to the new kitten ~ on the proviso that I interpreted Amber’s patting of my nose correctly: and that she too is on board with the idea.

    As the JFT card says: Just for today I will be happy. Most folks are as happy as they make up their minds to be.

    Unconditional love is a toughie…I am a work in progress on that one!

    Thanks for staying with us Danielle and keeping us inspired on the positive side of life! Now more than ever I am connecting with all the positive I can. I smile at everyone I see, I say hello to everyone I pass. I chat with the waitress and receptionist. I am the change I want to see in the world. Thanks for helping me to stay strong!!
    Oh, and I became a Vegan. Every little bit helps. This choice is to help me, but I know it has far reaching impact.
    Big hugs!!! XXO

    While I agree with you, I am finding it hard to stay in the light. I am so filled with anger. Anger for women, anger for minorities, anger for the LGBTQ community… It is not fair that we now live in fear. It is not fair that children are crying because they fear their parents will be deported. It’s not fair that women are having their breasts grabbed and told that it’s the man’s “right” to do so. It’s not fair that my gay friend is afraid to leave her house. I’m really struggling with staying positive even though I know you are right, the only way to combat the hate is with love. Right now all I am feeling is anger and hatred towards Trump and his supporters. I hope I can get back into the light soon. I don’t like feeling like this. I just want to DO something and I feel powerless. Thank you for your light and your wisdom Danielle.

    Wednesday was spent on my couch with a blanket over my head. I slept or watched an uplifting movie. One day at a time since. Perelandra ETS plus and EOP have made a huge difference.

    Danielle, how about a class or group just to freak worth what had happened and going forward on how to make a real lasting and permanent difference for the good of all?

    Otherwise, this just sticks and is more of the worst.

    The last several years I have made an effort to stay centered and not go off the handle on issues. I do stay away from the news and don’t take sway to anything the news reports. they are alarmists and try to push people to sides ( this has been my observation). It is difficult though not to pay attention to the harm people inflict on animals. That seriously disturbs me. Some things I do to keep me uplifted is I listen to powerful uplifting music like dance music and dance music that contains rap ( which has become truly awesome to bop to in my head and out as well LOL) I also chill out doing crochet and I just complete a dvd course of tai chi.

    I have found that unconditional love is something that most of us search for in a human being, but rarely find. However, it is quite easy and normal to have that love with an animal, or many (I am a guinea pig mom…10!). So even if you think this is an impossible task, look to your furry, feathery, fishy friends (oh, and scaley…) and it is instantly there in your life. I begin each day, before I get out of bed, and appreciate my wonderful friends, as well as my life in general…and the ugliness and negativity of others never has a chance to get to me…

    Oh my gosh, Danielle, I know exactly what you mean! I felt the exact same way and couldn’t help but wonder and worry for what this dramatic change will mean for the environment and all the critters. Early this morning while soaking in a little nature and feeling a little bit better but still not quite there, a lone rabbit came to feed in front of me. As I quietly watched it, I thought what are you hear to tell me. So I went to my animal medicine cards and guess what the rabbit represents? Fear! The message: Stop talking about horrible things happening and get rid of “what if” in your vocabulary. Specifically saying: “This may signal a time of worry about the future…” WOW! That little rabbit couldn’t have read me better! So I am flipping my thoughts and energy and focusing on all of us pulling together and uniting for the greater good!

    I get my daily dose of Danielle love and really enjoy it. 🙂 That said…it’s a lot that you’ve committed to with daily emails (go figure,over achiever!) A day off is expected from time to time.

    I was in a funk from the collective energy on Wednesday but have focused on gratitude for all the amazingly beautiful things I have in my life and that has helped. I keep reminding myself…I am in this world but not of this world.

    Humanity has a lot to sort out. As Neale Donald Walsh says “How is it possible for 7 billion people now living upon the Earth to all consistently say they want the same thing, and yet be absolutely unable to produce it, for all but the tiniest minority of our species?”

    Of course, that answer is found in the book you referenced ‘Power vs. Force’ (great book!) and hopefully that knowing will light a fire under the change agents (teachers, healers, coaches, intuitives) for us to continue doing the work we are doing without letting outward appearances get us down. We live in a progressive universe and our only option is Onward and Upward. So time for us to get moving! Love to you, sweet pea. <3

    My mom transitioned last week. We were (and still are) best friends and I miss her terribly. Between that and the election results, I could have crawled into a cave to get away from it all, but then, there is nowhere to “get away to”. I remind/reminded myself that I might not be able to control what is going on around me but I can control what is going on inside me. I keep playing uplifting and peaceful music, especially “What the World Needs Now is Love, Sweet Love”. Ironically, if we did not feel love, we would not feel sadness and pain and anger. When you love or desire something or someone or some outcome and don’t obtain the object of your love or desire, then emotions we perceive as negative tend to be happen, and so many of us are in that state these days. I suppose we are loving our way through it. LOVE on!!

    YES! Yesterday morning my son had a heart attack and was rushed into surgery to add a stent and bring him through it naturally I was spending the day trying to say the positive thank you god he’s alive instead of the negative oh no he’s live the wrong Life he’s had a heart attack. What a difference the positive makes and today when I got up to see what you had written yesterday along with today’s before I headed off to the hospital your post put a big smile on my face. Isn’t it amazing how’s the real powers that be know what to say when to say it and it isn’t coincidence that it always falls into place in everyone’s life. Danielle, you are so loved!

    Thank you for all the positive insight Danielle!
    I really need it! I’ve been on a roller coaster of emotions over these last few days. I’ve cried, more than once feeling like all my core values have been tossed aside by far too many people. I guess I’m still grieving and have to get through all those stages to get back to where I belong. I know I’ll get there eventually and that there more love and kindness in the world than we were led to believe. Trying my best to send positivity out into the world.
    Light and love to you my friend ❤️

    Danielle,

    I enjoy reading your posts and learning about your unique way of bringing the light and holding the light in the world.

    I know there has been much fear and uncertainty. Many people are scared. Fear is a opportunity for healing. Fear strikes a cord in us and helps bring to the surface issues that we have within ourselves and in society as a whole. We need to learn to love through the fear and trust that beneath the fear is a loving message wanting to surface and be healed. Yes, love is the answer. Learning to love through the fear is a powerful lesson. Thank you for being a light in the world. Thank you for guiding us to increase our light and therefore our love. Thank you for sharing, being vulnerable, and creating an opening and opportunity for us to connect and unite.

    Kelly

    To help me step back, remove the emotional response and keep grounded I use these guide lines.

    Lose the need to understand how or why somthing happened
    Accept what is
    Decide what I can do to help or bring change

    Danielle, I have been feeling and thinking very much along the lines you expressed so eloquently in your email. Being filled with rage, hate, disgust and contempt for anything or anyone only creates more of that energy in the world. I love that you mentioned Hawkins book Power vs. Force – reading this book was life changing for me. I also was really inspired by his 12th and final publication Letting Go:The Pathway of Surrender. Thanks for reminding us all that we can never dissolve hate with more hate. It may sound trite, but only love is the answer.

    Hi Danielle,

    I also wanted to thank you for the recommended reading by David Hawkins.
    I also purchased his other book, Letting Go: Ghe Pathway to Surrender. I’m only in the third chapter and I just want to say that so far, this book is an awesome read. For anyone struggling with, letting go, surrender, and emotional upheaval I believe this book is a must read. You recommendation comes at the perfect time. Thank you!!!

    Danielle, I’m British so only have a limited view of your electoral process, however it seems to me that D Trump may be the person to clear some of the log jam thats existed over the last eight years. Theres been a lot of hot air, but from January this guy will have his work cut out to produce some of the things promised. Lets work withe the energy to make our world a better place for all. This of course applies to we in Great Britain with our Brexit vote. Not something I voted for but I’m still in the same boat with all my fellow citizens.
