7 Days of Rest, Jan. 1-7 2018 Global Event

January 1-7 2018, I was happy to participate in an awesome global event called, 7 Days of Rest. When a brilliant friend of mine in Jerusalem, Shelley Ostroff shared with me a vision she had for this idea of 7 Days of Rest, I thought it sounded amazing. What Shelley did to accomplish and manifest the 7 Days of Rest Global Event was nothing less than phenomenal. I was happy to support and promote this event far and wide with my social networks!

As it states on the 7 Days of Rest  website: The 7 Days of Rest, 1 – 7 January 2018, a Global Event for the Healing and Recalibration of the Planet and all its Inhabitants has brought together individuals and communities from across the world in service of a thriving world for all. We now move forward together to manifest our shared vision. 

There were several online webinars that honored 7 Days of Rest and focused on the sacredness of the animals, trees, water and the environment. I also had my first online recorded Zoom event that I participated in, learning how to connect to others via a webcam and a beautiful idea of consciousness becoming conscious. It was because of all that I was inspired by with 7 Days of Rest that I started a new Facebook Group, called Love Mother Earth. 

Love Mother Earth is a simple seed idea that is desperately needed in our world today. There are so many people who care deeply for our planet and bring hope, ideas, inspirations and solutions for the healing and restoration of our Earth. We need so many more people to understand the needs of our planet and especially, the need to do whatever we can to preserve and care for our planet for future generations.

It is so wonderful to  see so many exceptional women who are leading others to realize that is is our responsibility to do our part to love and cherish our Mother Earth. I sincerely hope that with our new Love Mother Earth group, that as we share, inspire and uplift our global family daily via our social networks that more people will realize the urgent need to connect to nature, to eat a plant based diet, and to deeply cherish and love our most fragile Mother Earth and all life thereon.

I am so grateful to be connected to a vast and growing network of people who inspire me and bring me hope. In the online opening ceremony and meditation, I was happy to learn more about the work of Cynthia Jurs, whose efforts with the Earth Treasure Vase Global Healing Project brings healing and protection to the Earth by filling consecrated clay vessels with prayers and offerings, and ceremonially burying them in the Earth in collaboration with indigenous elders, young activists and grassroots leaders in places where healing and protection are most needed around the planet. An awesome organization,  that I am a grateful member of and which I love deeply is, TreeSisters, women seeding change. TreeSisters envision a world in which it is normal for everyone to protect and restore our planet. Loving Waters is a growing united global community of Water advocates providing connection, support, presence and focus for committed ‘Water Guardians’ in their broader actions by hosting this website, a monthly conference call, and with a lively social media networking presence. The Global White Lion Trust is doing so much to preserve, rescue and keep safe the small number of while lions still in the wild, such majestic creatures that have been slaughtered mercilessly by trophy hunters, and whose habitat has been diminished so greatly. It touches my heart so deeply to know that there are so many individuals and organizations who are doing their part to make our world a better place!

So deeply grateful to Shelley Ostroff, whose passion and efforts are an inspiration to us all. Learn more about Shelley’s work here via Together In Creation.

The Death Throes of Patriarchy

Friday, January 20, 2017 many people were reeling from the inauguration of the new U.S. president, Donald Trump.  On January 21, 2017 for the Women’s March, an estimated 5 million women and men came together worldwide, with over 1 million marching in Washington, D.C. People came in peaceful protest to march, raise their voices for the protection of legislation and policies regarding human rights, women’s rights, immigration and healthcare reform, protection of the environment, support the efforts at Standing Rock, North Dakota and the efforts of the water protectors who are trying to stop the Dakota Access Pipeline that threatens to destroy their only clean water source, and to support LGBTQ rights, racial equality and freedom of religion.

In the week after the Women’s March, Nicholas Kristof, columnist for The New York Times and co-author of Half the Sky: Turning Oppression into Opportunity for Women Worldwide wrote this important article outlining, Trumps War On Women.

As we are seeing the death throes of patriarchal systems and the shadow side of man’s need to control and oppress the female gender and the unconsciousness of domination, cruelty and lack of regard for the planet, it is becoming very clear that we, as individuals and humanity collectively are being called upon to manifest the qualities that are most needed in the world now, more than ever before.

We must be diligent in shining the Light of compassion, generating peaceful, serene energy in the face of bigotry, unconsciousness, separation and cruelty. We as individuals must transform negative energy into positive energy by being so focused on kindness, healing. love and peace, that negative thoughts and energy will easily be abandoned as we gently bring it into the Light through our intention to heal suffering and fear with hope and by creating a positive vision for our future of our lives and our collective humanity. This requires vigilance in utilizing the tools of tuning into inner peace with slow, deep breathing, relaxation and Calm daily, centering prayer, mindfulness, silence and connecting to a positive support system as we work towards shifting humanity from this realm of the ego to one of unification, higher consciousness, mercy and love.

As the great spiritual teacher Marianne Williamson has said,  “Each of us has a unique part to play in the healing of the world.”

We have much to do, but knowing we are not alone is a huge comfort!” ~Rose

‘Awaken’

Excerpt from Intro to ‘Awaken, Awaken, The Time Is Now’
In this day and age, we have available a feast of knowledge, wisdom, and access to the teachings and revelations of the greatest minds in the history of the world. When we open the door to knowledge and inspiration, which is at our fingertips, the veils of ignorance, frustration and confusion naturally begin to fade. Each step we take on our journey through life becomes an awakening to deeper meaning and purpose.

Mankind must learn to accept one another, despite our differences. With so much division in our world it seems imperative to consider what we can do as individuals to promote unity and peace.

Let us consider love the highest ideal, the greatest message we can try to embrace and share with all our brothers and sisters of the world. As we become motivated to be of service to others, life is enhanced and we can attain spiritual peace and fulfillment in our lives and in the world.

‘Awaken, Awaken, The Time Is Now’ is a culmination of what I’ve learned after many years of study and my own personal spiritual journey. The intention for this writing is to go beyond boundaries, and what I believe is only a lack of understanding of other belief systems. In my studies, what I have found is that those that are pursuing religion and spirituality are all on a path to God. It may not be the same path, but the goal is the same, union with God. In the spirit, all men are equal.
