05 Dec / Peace & Love Organizations You Can Support – Now & Beyond
You are living in one of the most powerful times in consciousness. A time where you cannot take a back seat to your life’s unfolding but must be an active and co-operative component to all that is calling to you. A time when you, and when all, must be Rising UP for Love.
Notice we don’t just say “rise” as in a “one-time” event. It’s a consistent, daily Rising Up For Love that impacts every area of your life (I’ll be talking MUCH MORE about this in 2017, so stay tuned!).
In the meantime, here’s what’s been happening and what’s calling you – and all of us – now…
Since April 2016 when we went through the intense Retrograde Season, The JOGs were continually urging us to go deeper into our core wounds (which we addressed in Spirit-Led Mastery), deeper into our work as things were about to shift in a radical way in our world. By August 2016, we were asked to begin a new chapter in our life unfolding – no more delays were allowed. Each time The JOGs let us know it was imperative that we follow the guidance as the expansion of the collective was literally anchored into whether the large majority of us did our spiritual and emotional development work…or not.
By October 2016 it became clear that consciousness was going to take a route that was to be quite bumpy but which was needed to more fully awaken those who were apathetic within the collective into true alignment with who they really are.
So now, here you and all of us are.
And now, you and each one of us must be, without delay be Rising UP for Love – everyday.
To do this, the next unfolding that is vital to your expansion, your peace, your Love, your life fulfillment is this – Sacred Activism.
Two months ago, these two words were whispered to me when I felt a deep call within my Soul that I did not fully recognize. When I asked what it was, I heard the words “Sacred Activism”. Thankfully for Spirit, they didn’t have to explain this too much in depth, but rather guided me to Google the term which I found was coined by prominent spiritual teacher Andrew Harvey.
Essentially, Sacred Activism is activism – taking action to be of service to others – from a place of alignment with one’s true nature, with Spirit, with one’s true self, and thus, the path of one’s Destiny.
Paramount to this is that in Sacred Activism we are daily engaged in our spiritual practices and emotional and spiritual development. In that way, our activism is free of the intense activation of our wounds so that we can be of true service to those ones, lands, animals, aspects of this life that we are called to be of service to. When we are in activism without doing this critical work, we are simply spreading our wounds, our charge, our fear, our anger to more living beings, which does not allow for long-term, lasting peace for anyone or anything.
When we live from a place of Love, and are committed to living in Love, Peace and Spirit-Led guidance and support, we naturally are compelled to give to others through Sacred Activism, and to support the peoples and aspects of this life that are resonate with us at a Soul level.
Each of you has a specific area of focus in this life that you are here to support through your connection to who you really are – which is Love, peace, abundance and Spirit.
Take a moment to tune in and connect to the deep core of who you really are – what area of this great life unfolding are you being called at this momentous time in consciousness to support?
Below is a list of organizations that focus on peace, Love, non-violent direct action and empowerment from an aligned place. If you know of organizations not featured here that also do this, please submit them here for consideration to be featured on our Love Blog.
It is only by coming together in Love, Peace and Spirit-Led alignment through Sacred Activism that we can truly write a new story for ourselves, our planet and the collective.
