Children of the World Want Change, Be the Change You Wish to See Kids!!

Greta is being heard because she is a child and those in power do not know how to remove a child from asking for a better world for children.

I knew this was one of the ways that change will be evoked as those of us who are committed to another world are silenced, stonewalled and ignored in the corridors of power.  However, children evoke strong public responses and this is why they have power at this time.

My wishes go to the children to be the change they wish to see.  HOwever, with power comes responsibility and they too need to learn a new way.  the future will sing out the words ‘we are ONE’.  The future will be about a highly evolved consciousness whereby we learn to treat each other with respect, we recognise that destroying the earth is destroying our very selves, we recognise that what you do to another returns to the self as life is circular.   The species must evolve into a collaborative, values based future culture that no longer extends power through force but discovers inner power through love.  This future society will live in harmony with the planet, it will not be rewarded on the basis of self interest but shared interest where all win/win.    This advanced society will be taught from childhood that the family is the central foundation to peace and parents and children will interact in ways that are peaceful, respectful and not based on domination models on the basis of age.  Parents will learn how to parent in a way that is more akin to coming alongside with experience and counsel, there will be no force or punishment but rather a pointing to consequences for actions, experiential ways of learning why an action shouldn’t be taken and reflective thinking to look back over what went wrong and why.  It will be community based where we will know our neighbours, we will live on fresh food and resources that are local and we will be producing and sharing that produce with each other recognising that we must be close to the earth to respect it as the source of our lives, indeed our very mother.

This generation that are here now will express this higher consciousness as they too have destinies that must be experienced.  This comes from a greater ecosystem beyond the earth and is part of our own lifting in consciousness.  It is not unlike the child who has played with toys for a long time to realise they have outgrown their interest in those toys.  Those who are here to be the wayshowers will think and see differently and are here to guide humanity to a new future based on harmony.  There will be clashing it up on this journey as the clashing is what expands into this high consciousness.  It is inevitable as it is destined for our species to evolve.  Many with vested interests will resist, will use the old power structure as they cling to their New World Order paradigm which is not sustainable and will not play out the way they believe.   We have been down the totalitarian path and we do not desire to go through it again.  The climate change issue and those who have tried to take control of the agenda indicating their industries are sustainable have not understood real sustainability and the ecological footprint that we must live within.  It is not revisiting eugenics which arose out of Hitler’s regime and population control.  It is about learning to live within natural limits.    There is a saying ‘the meek will inherit the earth’, this is a truism. Those favoured for natural selection will be living in harmony with natural systems, and like any species in nature, those that cannot adapt to the earth will not continue.  As there are forces far greater than the few at the top and some off world influences which governments are well aware of and the Navy recently announced.  The power of love is not a word, love itself is not human it has come from a higher awareness that created all of us.  This essence is the natural unity that exists in nature and is the very resilience that ensures species survive or die off.  Human’s must reconnect with loving themselves, each other and the earth as if their family.  Until they do they will be out of step with this new future.  So it is time now to come together and heal the past, face what we deny and move towards a far greater future where we not only survive but thrive.  I feel that will come to pass.

Here are two videos of Greta Thornberg.

Greta Thornberg, climate change activists.  It is time for the children to learn to speak up and reclaim their democracy before their future is altered.  By 2020 the curve must go downward, politicians don’t want to talk to the children she says, she says she wants the politicians to speak to scientists.  She advocates for the Paris Agreement.  She says unite behind the science.

The Growing Trend of Adding Heart to Companies

Emotional intelligence is critically needed in the world we are in.  It is clear that business decisions are typically self interested and what is termed ‘rational’.  What we require is balanced decision making that takes into account the emotional/social impact of decisions rather than seeking to water down regulators, circumvent Occupational Health and Safety and group think that puts the corporation or organisation first.  We want well founded leaders who are not mouthing respect, compassion and community interest but actually feel it.

This month our live Add Heart Call is a conversation with Guest, Robert Erdbrink, Director of HeartMath Benelux and host Deborah Rozman, HeartMath Inc.
Our Add Heart Call theme for August will focus on The Growing Trend of Adding Heart to Companies.

September is around the corner and it is the month that the world acknowledges the shared desire for International Peace. But how can we have peace collectively if the individuals that make up the collective are suffering from extreme stress?

The rise of employee stress has escalated to such a level that burnout is now classified as an occupational phenomenon according to the World Health Organization.

Many companies are engaging in stress management programs that include exercise, yoga, mindfulness and meditation. Yet these programs take time and many employees don’t continue with them.

Robert Erdbrink, Director of HeartMath Benelux, is helping companies in Europe understand heart-mind-body connection and providing them with tools and technology they can use in the moment to reduce stress and burnout. The results are so significant that the entire Dutch police force has adopted this heart-based program.

Robert will share inspiring stories of what the HeartMath Benelux team is achieving with companies and the opening of heart that is occurring in Europe.

We’ll close with a heart-focused meditation to add heart to increase the care in businesses and communities.

We hope you’ll join us for this inspiring event.
