Meaningful Monday’s ~ Homelessness

A big concern in our modern-day world is the amount of people now homeless, and sleeping rough on our streets. This is also emphasised even more as we see the Mass Displacement of people who are being driven from their homelands because of war, or persecution of their religion. Who are then herded together like animals in disgraceful camps and forgotten about once the news headlines die down. 

Today on my Meaningful Monday post, I want to bring the plight of Homelessness a little closer to home.

In my own home town here in England, the numbers of people sleeping rough have risen considerably. For those of you who are not familiar with a blog called Gallybloggers  This is a site set up by  Dewin Nefol  where you can also see his beautiful digital art creations.

I hope you will go and read more poems written by those homeless souls, which are submitted and presented by Dewin on the blog he created at Gallybloggers especially to bring awareness to their plight in sharing their poems and thoughts.  Dewin, whose home town is in Wales, reaches out to support these individuals, bringing awareness of those who are  in need. These are also proud and independent, intelligent people, whose lives have become  a product of circumstance.

I want you, just for a moment to think, what kind of stories have driven a person to live on the streets, to weather the storms, not only of wind, rain, bitter cold and snow. But the storms we who pass them by vent upon them. In our verbal abuse,violence, or by our lack of compassion, and our ignorance, as we pass them by trying to ignore their existence.. 

The World is filling up more and more with Homelessness, and for many that may mean just one pay-packet away from eviction of your own nice dwellings. There for the Grace of our Circumstances we all could walk in the shoes of Sole Man, a homeless person whose poetry hits a nerve in his poem DeadBeat   

Have you ever stopped to consider the back story of these homeless people, and why they found themselves upon the streets?. Have you ever thought, that they may have been once an educated teacher, in business,  or a talented musician, an artist, a soldier, or  an abused youngster, and why they now live as they do.

I hope as you walk about your own towns and cities, and you come across a homeless person living rough on the streets, you do not walk on by.

But you Stop! and consider his back story and circumstance..

And instead of walking on by, you reach out a helping hand

and SEE the person in front of you.

Why Are we so Afraid?

This photo is from  Kindness Blog and if you are not following then I recommend you do .  The Words to this post are~

To those who attack ‘migrants’ online. Please take a few moments out of your day to really look at this photograph. And rethink.

Here is a father fleeing the war in Syria, crying whilst cradling his children.

Should he stop searching for a place of safety for his young family and take the children back into the war-zone?

What do you think he should do? What would you do in his situation?

Rethink!

I did.. And I wrote a Poem today as what I saw in the links below breaks my heart. 

syrian family feeling the war

Why are we afraid to share?

How is it we humans forgot to to Care

What would you do to protect your own

Wouldn’t you want to Flee a War zone.

~~

They gave up everything to seek a safe place

What is happening to the Human Race?

That we fear so much to give them a home

Didn’t our Nations escalate their War zone 

~~

What will it take to open our hearts

Imagine your Family ripped apart

These people have risked all in life and limb

Yet still we are afraid to let them in. 

~~

Why are we afraid to share?

We have to Change and Begin to CARE!

Blog Challenge ~ Present your Gifts

 

Linda over at Litebeing Chronicles presented her followers with a  Blog challenge, Present Your Gifts Asking these questions about what we have learnt over this past year in 2014. 

  1. Which lessons did you learn?
  2. How did you serve others?
  3. What blessings did you receive?
  4. Was there something you lost that turned out to be a blessing in disguise?

Did you receive any “gifts” in terms of powers or skills?

One thing Linda states on her post is how fast 2014 has speeded along.. None more so for me since the Beginning of September.. Since I decided to take early retirement finishing work at the end of August these past months have seemed just like weeks.. So as I look back over 2014..

  • Which Lessons did I learn? Well I learnt all over again how to slow down, and trust in the Universe. Sometimes our heads get in the way of our hearts and for a long while leading up to my decision to finish work my gut had told me ‘Its Time’.. Sometimes all we need do is Listen to our inner voice and follow our intuition.
  • How did I serve others? Maybe this question is best asked of others!.. I always try to treat others as I wish to be treated. Maybe if we each of us did this the world would be a much better place..
  • What Blessings did I receive? Each day I receive blessings.. Sometimes we forget the blessings we already have.  I am blessed to just be able to ‘see’. In Sept I had an eye test for new glasses, it took 3 attempts and three pair of glasses were returned because the lenses were not correct. This one little thing brought home to me more than ever How precious our eyesight is.. And what wonders we see every day, a blessing we take for granted.. Our senses and our ability to walk, talk, hear and touch are blessings to cherish.
  • Did I loose something that turned out to be a blessing? Now I had to think on this one.. If I had answered this question a week ago maybe my answer would have been different.. But Last Thursday I went visiting relatives some miles away and we called to have a meal in one of the local pubs.

Now is the time when the Christmas Meals are on the menu ,when work colleagues get together etc.. We chose a quiet table  and next to ours was a laid out table for 12.. We had nearly finished our meal when a group of adults with learning difficulties came in with their 4 carers..  My eyes filled up with tears as I saw how excited they all were, and it brought back so many fond memories of the times I had taken out those whom I supported with learning difficulties for meals and especially at Christmas time..

One carer said “ that is your peace shattered now” I said no it was lovely to see them all enjoying themselves.. As I was leaving I spoke to one of the young men who had Downs Syndrome , they were still awaiting their meal to arrive.. I said “ I bet you have been looking forward to this meal” He smiled and clapped his hands in glee and said “ Yes”, he was  “Very excited”…  Yes I lost something when I gave up supporting these wonderful people.. But I gained so so Soooooooooo much more from knowing their beautiful souls….. And I count my Blessings Every day!.

  • Did I receive any gifts in terms of Power and skills? Again the thinking cap was on.. What do we term as Power and what do we term as skill.?.

Each and everyone of us has a ‘Power’ so strong we use it every day and yet we fail to see how Powerful it is.. We have this incredible tool call ‘Mind’. Yet many fail to see how Powerful a tool it is.. IF only we used this tool more wisely, and realised what we Think we create.. May we all of us use our God given Power wisely as we take responsibility for our thoughts, which lead to our Actions.

Skills..  We each possess. Some of you here on WP have praised my skills as a poet, and praised my crafting and artistic skills, I thank  you..  Yet I say we all of us hold skills. We each of us have talents, whether they be to Listen, to laugh and create humour. It maybe we have baking skills, or photographic skills, writing skills .. It matters not, what skills we have.. What matters is that we should all of us be prepared to share our skills. And the best way we share is through Communicating with one another… Which brings us back to Community!.. We need to once again become a  Community in which we learn again how to share and CARE! that which is needed.

We need now more than ever to communicate to each other the need to share… Share our Love for one another, Share Kindness.. Share in Compassion.. Share our Hearts. Only when we  learn to let go of our differences, our prejudices and our Judgements, Anger and hatred, when we do that, we then create Harmony and Love. What goes around comes around.. As we cast our pebbles of thoughts into the Pond.. We are the ones who create the ripples we see around us..

“Life teachers is the greatest lessons

And gives us the best gifts.

We may not have control over  all the tests,

But you can either let the lesson devour or empower you”

May each Lesson you Learn Empower your Spirit

Anyone wishing to take Part please let Linda know Here where you can find more vacant dates.

Love and Blessings

Finding Balance within our World and within our selves.

Striking the right balance between our physical and spiritual selves is one of the most challenging aspects of existence. It has been such a rewarding journey along my road of both serving Spirit within my role as medium for over 20 years. And my decision last November to retire from my Demo’s in Spiritualist centres, And this year in my retirement from serving in my job role in supporting others with Learning difficulties and in Mental Health.

The transition at first was one that took some getting used to. But we are dual beings by our very natures, both spiritual entities bound to earth by our physical bodies. And we also have a duty to nurture both physical and spiritual  selves with equal devotion and love. So I decided to nurture me more and enjoy Life and the new found freedom Retirement offers as I get up to plan my day ahead.

Browsing the ‘Web’ of life if we are not careful can drag us into all sorts of Drama’s.. None which are our own.. Yet we are drawn to give our compassion and also our gratitude that we are born to walk our own pathway and not that of others in life who seem to be going through such turmoil and strife … And yet each of our separate stories are unequivocally connected.  Together we are all upon our Collective Path of Evolution as we traverse this Time of Change as We shift within our collective consciousness.

In my view it is the responsibility of each person on the planet to unite and balance their physical and spiritual selves so that the  aspects  we view as being different bring out the best in each other, creating a vibrant, dynamic, and workable whole. As we learn to start and Care again for each other and our world.

So much emphasis is being put upon the differences in our cultures right now, which is escalating Fear within many.  It matters not to me who you worship or that you worship at all.. All that matters is that our thoughts and feelings can determine the frequency at which we vibrate, and our vibration goes out into the world and attracts to us energy moving at a similar frequency.

We are the one’s who create our own reality, which is why we can cause a positive shift in our lives by raising our vibration.  Or we can cause a negative shift, as we lower our vibration to be in Fear and react in Anger and with prejudice.  Be that from War campaigns or Disease zones.   How we feel profoundly influences how we perceive our reality. It is important to remember that none of us are born with instruction manuals and that learning lessons is a lifelong journey. But it is also important to know that as we buy into Drama’s not our own, We give out our energy which adds to the whole. Which in turn then creates more of the same within our experience of reality.. 

No one is perfect.. We would not be here upon our Earth’s Experience if we had learnt all there is to learn. I have spoken upon the subject of Trusting the Universe before, and we are all of us engaged within that relationship with the Universe which responds to our Thoughts and Actions. I hope as you live in your own Now moments, you choose which vibration you wish  to attract into your lives for all of your tomorrows.. The choice really is up to us.. 

We truly need to but Treat the Earth and Each Other Well to bring about positive changes to our World. We are all of us responsible for our Actions and our  Thoughts that precede them 

 

 

 Love and Blessings

Each of us, carries within us the capacity to change the world in small ways for better or worse. Everything we do and think affects the people in our lives, and their reactions in turn affect others As the effect of a seemingly insignificant word passes from person to person, its impact grows and can become a source of great joy, inspiration, anxiety, or pain. Your thoughts and actions are like stones dropped into still waters, causing ripples to spread and expand as they move outward.. I hope that I can send a few ripples out via the web of life, as we each of us weave the threads together... Welcome to my Sanctuary of Peace and Love... May we each spread our Lights around our World....Sue Dreamwalker
