SIBYL MAGAZINE: For the Spirit & Soul of Woman
I’m probably like you; I have a schedules, routines, work, friends and relationships that fill much of my time. I’m also guilty, as are many of you, of forgetting to look up, change things up or break from the norm. Forgetting that my narrow everyday vision in my piece of the world, neighborhood, country is not all there is. I forget. I get stuck in the everyday stuff and forget to see the bigger picture.
Ever since my trip to Egypt in January 2016 I’m more and more aware that I’m a part of the global community. I’m not sure if this knowing came from feeling the ancient roots there or the love and unity expressed by the Egyptian people. They say, “Welcome Home!” when you arrive—they mean it and you feel it.
The recent state of chaos, conflict and upheaval in the world is heart breaking—to say the least. I feel such a sorrow for all the hurting, confusion and loss. It’s sometimes easy to bury our heads in the sand or to stay deep in the pit of feeling anger, sadness, fear and worry. For a while that may be a necessary way to cope and work through the pain. But once we shake that off…ZOOM out! Start to see our place, our part, our connections, our heart and see how we fit into the world.
When I feel like my heads been down too long or I get jolted awake by events that I just can’t ignore I like to do activities that get me to ZOOM out and see different views, tastes, people, cultures, foods, etc. Expand my narrow vision and return to my daily routines and world with, hopefully, a broader perspective and outlook to operate from.
Here are some things I do to see bigger. I go to ethnic grocery stores; try new foods, hear different languages, see a community. I read books that explain topics I might not easily come across. Also travel, movies, museums and music can do this.
This is also why I love social media (most of the time), since it allows me to see and share with others all over the world. It’s powerful. More than ever we are a global community because of it.
There are negatives sides to it, of course. We also see and feel the not so good stuff of our world. Which is good to know, but we don’t have to linger there.
In fact, we shouldn’t. Have compassion, yes. Do something, oh yes. The most important thing to do is to keep our energy positive or vibrations high. Love, gratitude and appreciation are the emotions of the highest vibration—stay there. By staying there, we can raise the world’s vibration and support the positive. And it’s also an awesome place to take action from.
Let’s all make a conscious effort to ZOOM out!
