How You Can Change the World

I’m here with some good news.  You are powerful, and you can make a difference in our world!

Have you noticed that much of the world media is focussed primarily upon the negative, and it builds a vibration of fear and uncertainty around our futures?  Many of us are reeling under the constant barrage of bad news, and the latest market crash, tragedy or monstrous act of violence.

It is easy to feel that we are insignificant in the scheme of things.  But this is not the case.  Many people have changed the world through their thoughts, and actions.  And you too can play a part in lifting the vibration of our world to a place of Harmony and Peace.

At the core of our distress is always lack of Love.  When we live from our Hearts, violence against each other, and senseless acts of greed and inhumanity within our communities and environment dissolve.  Why? These are not products of the Heart, but of the Mind.  They arise from our sense of disconnectedness from ourselves, our families, our communities, our environment and God/Source Energy.

So what can you do?

Firstly, focus on all that IS good in your life, and in the world, no matter how small that detail may be.  Do not give your attention to the bad news around you, and the unwanted things in your life.  Focus purely on what is going well, and what makes you feel good.

When you pray or meditate, bring that beautiful Divine Love and Light into your body and heart.  Fill yourself up, and allow the Love and Light to continue to flow through you and to the people around you.  Picture people and situations, and send healing energy and Love to them.  Surround them in white Light and wish them only Love and Good, no matter who they are or what their actions might have been.  See people and situations only as you wish them to be – full of harmony, wellness, love, creativity, joy and peace.  Don’t dwell on negativity – always choose Light.  Choose forgiveness of yourself and others

Within your immediate circle, practice acts of love, kindness and compassion.  Move outside your own needs, and begin to understand and reach out to meet the needs of the people around you.  Strengthen relationships within your family, friends and community.

Create a network of support for yourselves and others. Speak well of people. Treat others in the way you would wish to be treated, and always, always send and practice Love and Kindness.  Where people hurt and upset you, send them more Love and Kindness.  And when you are hurt and upset, connect with Love and Light to heal yourself.

Be true to yourself.  Practice self nurture, and allow yourself the time and freedom to enjoy your life and your relationships.  Use the gifts that you were blessed with to do the things you are passionate about, and that you most enjoy.  Doing this puts good energy back into the world, and allows you to grow and flourish at a Soul level, making ever increasing amounts of positive energy available to you and to those around you.  You will have a positive impact on your immediate environment, friends and family just through your personal energy and state of mind!

Reach out to others whenever you can.  We are social creatures, and it is when our connections with others begin to weaken and fall apart that we are most capable of harming ourselves and others.  Practice a spirit of tolerance and inclusiveness, but most of all, BE Love.  Remember old people and children.  Help them to feel loved and wanted.  Find a way to give back to your community or a charity of your choice.  Lead by example.

Accept healing and nurture from nature.  Spend time in natural environments, and with plants and pets.  They are all here to give us Love.  Introduce nature into your home and work environments and try to spend time in the fresh air and sunshine.  Yes, it does make a difference!

Slow down!  Take time to breath, to feel, to rest and relax.  Reduce your stress, and the stress you impose on others.  Eat well and look after your health.  Support products, services, organizations and individuals with integrity and who treat the world and its inhabitants with Love and Respect.

Finally, strive for Love and excellence in all you do, and in all you are.  When you raise your own vibration, it has a positive cascade effect on all around you.  So, don’t buy into fear – choose Love.  Like the saying goes, “Be the change you want to see in the World.

  1. great post! Thank you Nicole!
    “Where people hurt and upset you, send them more Love and Kindness. ” That is how I treat people, but unfortunately that is considered weakness and stupidity 🙁

      • It’s like you know me well 🙂
        Self love is more than difficult for me, I would say impossible, and about boundaries? too hard, I wish I know how to do it 🙂
        Thank you Nicole <3 <3 <3

  2. Very well said! Sometimes we forget to be kind, to ourselves and to others, but being kind and loving helps everyone to feel better, it’s a win win situation. I don’t know why so much of the media dwells on negatives, scare-mongering and the dreadful things people do to each other. How often is the news dedicated to something good, positive and uplifting? Even if such a thing does get into a news programme, it’s usually as an add-on at the end after all the grief. I think we need to redress the balance.

  3. As we all know good news does not hit the air waves or sell newspapers. By practising self love and then allow that love and forgiveness to flow out to every living creature on the planet, we can make a difference. We all have to share this amazing bountiful planet so we need to tread lightly and leave no footprint, we are one – all of us and when we have a negative thought it goes out so only send positive thoughts, love, forgiveness, compassion out to the Universe – it will come back tenfold. I try to practice sending love, forgiveness, compassion and gratfullness daily – sometimes its not as easy as other days – but I pull myself up and give myself a talking to and remember just how truly grateful I am for all that I have in my life.
    Beautiful blog as usual Nicole – thank you for your gentle reminders.

  4. Hi,
    Very well said and I agree people can make a difference with just a bit more of an effort.
    I love your globe shaped as a heart, very well done. 🙂

  5. Nicole, thank you for this post. I watched the Make Joseph Kony Famous video yesterday, heard about the 16 civilians (most of whom were children) killed by an american soldier who lost the plot, and lost my great aunt last night. Today I’ve just felt sick to my stomach, just terribly sad- not for me, but for so many others. That feeling of helplessness, disappointment and fear that you describe has been threatening to infect me, and your blog was exactly what I needed to fight it. Much love to you, Mia x

  6. This is just excellent, excellent, excellent! Do you know there is an indigenous people in Mexico (and probably others that I haven’t read about) that fully rely on good vibes? If we were all formed from nothing more than a thought and a Word, then our thoughts are quite creative and powerful. Thus, if something bad befalls the tribe, they look for the one that was thinking bad thoughts and can even blame that individual for an attack! They fully believe that if the tribe has love and kindness for one another in their hearts and minds, then there is no worry for trouble. It’s such a good environment I imagine. Blessings to you!
