For the past four weeks my blog series “The Five Letters of Generosity” has asked you to send “love letters” to people in need of joy. This week I’ll ask you to write the ultimate letter of encouragement and hope. And isn’t that what we are most hungry for during these uncertain times?
We hope that kids going back to school won’t be disrupted by another shutdown. We hope that we’ll get to visit our grandparents in their nursing home soon. We hope that our small business will survive through the fall and winter. Lots to hope for.
Hope is an energy that is fueled by encouragement. It shines brightest when surrounded by feelings of gratitude for what we already have. And it is inspired through the sending of and receiving of generosity of spirit. What better way to let the people of the world know we’re going to be okay.
Now it’s time to let Mother Earth know we’ve got her back.
This week’s assignment is to write a letter of joy, love, and hope to the planet.
As you’ve done with the last four letters this month, find a comfortable place to write, preferably somewhere in nature where you can truly tune into Mother Earth’s energy. Make this sacred time. You’ve got some lovely writing paper (recycled if possible) and your favourite pen.
Now pour your heart out. Express your appreciation for all that Mother Earth provides, acknowledging that she is also in crisis. Pledge to do what you can to ease her suffering.
Promise to be kind to all the inhabitants of her land, including yourself. Tell her you want her to be healthy for future generations and that you’ll do your part to honour her gifts. Take your time. Be generous.
When you finish, fold up your letter and find a special place where you can bury your offering to her. If you want, say a little prayer of hope, or spend a few minutes in silent meditation. Then let your positive vibration ripple through the air. Trust that she’ll hear your message.
That completes September’s message of generosity as a pathway to living more fully in the high vibration of joy energy. If you’ve written the four letters to this point, I’m sure you’ve already experienced a shift in your being. Synchronicities, unexplained happenings, people showing up in your life at exactly the right time, opportunities presenting themselves and so on.
You see, the Universe responds to your vibration. Or as Saint Francis of Assisi said, “For it is in giving that we receive.” And so it is.
And until next month, keep your frequency high, your mind open, and your joy ever expanding!
Love from your Joy Mama,
