While the concept of a 'Collective Consciousness' maybe still be new to some, many folks are encouraged by the rate at which people around the world have embraced 'Oneness'. What happens to one has a ripple effect and touches all. Send out energy, and it will come back to you. Choose now, to send out positive energy so that together we can raise not only our own vibrations, but the vibrations of all the kingdoms that we encounter: animal, vegetable, mineral, crystal; the whole of Gaia herself...

This morning, I received an email from Sandra Guassi that drives this point home. I share it here so that we can start 2014 with courage, determination and the sincerest desire to reconnect with each other. This is a great example of the way that the exchange of energy works.
Sending all manner of Light, Love and positive energy for an uplifting and awakened 2014.
One day a man saw an old lady, stranded on the side of the
road, but even in the dim light of day, he could see she needed help. So
he pulled up in front of her Mercedes and got out.
His Pontiac was still sputtering when he approached her.
Even with the smile on his face, she looked worried. No one had stopped to
help for the last hour or so. Was he going to hurt her? He
didn't look safe; he looked poor and hungry. He could see that she was
frightened, standing out there in the cold. He knew how she felt. It was that
chill which only fear can put in you.
He said, 'I'm here to help you, ma'am. Why don't you wait
in the car where it's warm? By the way, my name is Bryan Anderson.'
Well, all she had was a flat tire, but for an old lady, that was bad
enough. Bryan crawled under the car looking for a place to put the jack,
skinning his knuckles a time or two. Soon he was able to change the tire.
But he had to get dirty and his hands hurt. As he was
tightening up the lug nuts, she rolled down the window and began to talk to
him. She told him that she was from St. Louis and was only just passing
through. She couldn't thank him enough for coming to her aid.
Bryan just smiled as he closed her trunk. The lady asked how much she owed
him. Any amount would have been all right with her. She already imagined
all the awful things that could have happened had he not stopped.
Bryan never thought twice about being paid. This was not a job
to him. This was helping someone in need, and God knows there were plenty,
who had given him a hand in the past. He had lived his whole life that
way, and it never occurred to him to act any other way. He told her
that if she really wanted to pay him back, the next time she saw someone who
needed help, she could give that person the assistance they needed, and Bryan
added, 'And think of me.'
He waited until she started her car and drove off. It had
been a cold and depressing day, but he felt good as he headed for home,
disappearing into the twilight. A few miles down the road the lady saw a
small café. She went in to grab a bite to eat, and take the chill off
before she made the last leg of her trip home. It was a dingy looking
restaurant. Outside were two old gas pump s. The whole scene was
unfamiliar to her.
The waitress came over and brought a clean towel to wipe her
wet hair. She had a sweet smile, one that even being on her feet for the
whole day couldn't erase. The lady noticed the waitress was nearly eight
months pregnant, but she never let the strain and aches change her
attitude. The old lady wondered how someone who had so little could be so
giving to a stranger. Then she remembered Bryan. After the lady
finished her meal, she paid with a hundred dollar bill.
The waitress quickly went to get change for her hundred dollar
bill, but the old lady had slipped right out the door. She was gone by the
time the waitress came back. The waitress wondered where the lady could
be. Then she noticed something written on the napkin. There were
tears in her eyes when she read what the lady wrote: 'You don't owe me
anything. I have been there too. Somebody once helped me out, the
way I'm helping you. If you really want to pay me back, here is what you
do: Do not let this chain of love end with you.'
Under the napkin were four more $100. Well, there
were tables to clear, sugar bowls to fill, and people to serve, but the waitress
made it through another day. That night when she got home from work and
climbed into bed, she was thinking about the money and what the lady had
written. How could the lady have known how much she and her husband needed
it? With the baby due next month, it was going to be hard. She knew
how worried her husband was, and as he lay sleeping next to her, she gave him a
soft kiss and whispered soft and low, 'Everything's going to be all right.
I love you, Bryan Anderson.'
There is an old saying... 'What goes around comes around'. Today I send you this story, and I'm asking you to pass it on. Let this light shine. The Universe / Spirit / God / All-That-Is works in mysterious ways and sometimes puts people in our lives for a reason.
