Loving Mother Earth

As with any tragedy, the Gulf Oil Spill creates both opportunity for greater darkness or greater light. The shame, blame game accomplishes very little. The angels say if we come together in prayer, and in our dedication to living in the truth of our love then we can inspire the solution both energetically speaking - for Mother Earth needs OUR strength and love now, and on a practical level - because the more of us that pray for a solution, the quicker it will come about.

Sometimes we feel so small in the face of such a huge mess. You may feel like you live too far away to do anything, or you can't afford to send money, but we CAN send love. We CAN pray. We can choose faith in what is good and true. We have that power within us.

I was praying very hard earlier in the week for the earth. I have a stone sphere that looks somewhat like the planet and when I pray for her I hold this sphere and imagine coating the earth with beautiful light. I imagined holding her in my soul's heart. I imagined soothing purple light plugging up the gaping wound that has burst open in the Gulf. And then I started talking to her. "Dear Mother Earth, hang in there. We humans have done terrible things to you and there are those who hate and fear and allow greed to possess them. But you know there are many of us who love you and who are dedicated to learning more and more every day about loving each other. Hang in there. I will help heal you." That last sentence came from the I-Am presence that shines through all of us - the part of me that is much bigger than I- Ann. Immediately I felt a rush of heat coming up through my feet and I burst into tears with the magnitude of the love that I felt coming back TO me from the earth. I felt her as a living breathing spirit with whom we are in communion at all times. I felt her love, her fatigue, her sadness at watching the unkindness on the earth, her willingness to hang on there for us. I felt it all, all at once, like a rush of knowing, feeling, and sensing. With tears streaming down my face, I found myself repeating over and over, " I love you. Hang in there. Hang in there. We are here for you."

As I came out of this trance-like space, I felt almost desperate for greater ways to help. The angels told me to go get an older CD out and play a song on it called "Mother Earth." It is a ballad - a love song to our planet - truly a prayer that we need to pray in these times right now. The lyrics touched me deeply... "see the blackness come upon your shores... pain and greed have cut you to the core... Mother Earth don't weep any more..." I'll have a link to the song and the lyrics for you next week.

As we heal ourselves, we heal the planet. So as you watch the news, send love the oceans, the earth, and the entire human race, but do your best to avoid judgment, criticism, blame, hatred, etc. because that truly hurts the heart of the earth. Better to be an example of love for others than to sink to a level that only contributes to the problem.

Whatever you are guided to do, I know Mother Earth appreciates each one of you, and I hope you can take time this week to sit in prayer and then in silent reception to feel her love rushing back to comfort and thank you.

Love and gratitude to each one of you. Together we are powerful in God's love.

ps - If you enjoy guided meditations, I have a short free one to heal the earth that you can download here. You can also join in the World Prayer that the angels gave me in 2001, or copy and post it on your site, newsletters, etc. All I ask is a little note: ©2001 Ann Albers -
