Daily Inspirational Message for June 29, 2013


Would you buy a stuffed bunny or a baby blanket that was handcrafted by a prisoner on death row? Would you go to a cafe and eat a sandwich that was made by an employee who was screaming angrily at another employee while he made your food?
– Rob Brezsny

When I imagine wrapping a newborn baby in a blanket made by a serial killer, my inner being practically does a back flip and passes out cold. Imagine it yourself for a moment: if you have a similar reaction, it’s a bold sign that on some level, you too are aware of energy and that everything is connected and everything we do carries our energetic imprint. We are wise to work with this awareness by surrounding ourselves with positivity. What we eat, what we buy, the people we spend time with, what we watch on TV, what we read: everything is constantly impacting all of us, whether we have the tender skin of a newborn or the wizened, weathered aura of someone who has seen a whole lot of craziness over the years. The more we consciously choose the energies, ideas, people and stuff we allow into our worlds, the more empowered we grow to consciously cultivate peace and well-being.
