At any moment, under any circumstances, we can let the Universe know what we would like to happen. We have a say.
The news lets us know where to direct prayer and intention. Prophecy is a suggestion. Pain is feedback. Our words, thoughts and hearts have sway.
Before the 2012 London Olympics, I was participating in a spiritual gathering with about 40 people. The gentleman leading the group spoke about his feeling that something bad would happen at the upcoming Olympics, like a terrorist attack. Many people instantly agreed with his prediction, as if it were a foregone conclusion. On my suggestion, we worked as a group to visualize a perfectly peaceful celebration of the world at the Olympics. As a group and as individuals, we had a say, along with the countless other people who prayed for peace in London. And it worked.
In this time, when external circumstances seem chaotic and fanaticism seems to has a hold on many, we can choose peace. We can hold a vision of everyone on our planet thriving. There is plenty of love, plenty of peace, plenty of grace, plenty of everything.
Instead of accepting what is or might be, we can make a habit of directing our attention onto the highest possible good, and asking for help (from angels and friends) in that desire manifesting.
