In the past weeks we have gone from living within the restrictions of the Pandemic to Social unrest in our country. It is hard to fathom that such atrocities happen in our seemingly modern society, but clearly they do.
Being a white woman, albeit from a different country, I do not experience the hardships that some of our fellow Americans feel. I can only speak from my experience and perspective which fortunately does not include prejudice against me or my family.
Watching things unfold over the past week and the emotions that have erupted bring me so much sadness. There are no words for the violent act, only shock and dismay. The resulting protests both peaceful and otherwise have left many more injured or dead. It breaks my heart to think of all of the families who have lost a loved one as a result of this and things that have led up to this.
As a society, a community, we need to stop the separation, stop the judgment, stop the hatred and be a part of the change. It is interesting but one of my marketing staff regularly asks when we stopped living and teaching our children the “Golden Rule”. She says that back when she was a child, kids were taught to treat people how you want to be treated. Teachers would reference it in class, parents would use the term often and to her it meant we all deserve to be treated with dignity and respect, love and understanding. Treat someone how you expect them to treat you. Value yourself and treat others with that same value. It seems so simple but with all of the pressures of life it seems like people have forgotten that we are all human. We all have darkness and light within us. We all have a choice on how we show up in the world.
This is not the first time that we have seen such prejudices, injustice, heartache and death but hopefully we, as a society, have had enough and now can be the time for change.
We saw it during COVID-19 with fights in grocery stores over social distance or hording food and toilet paper. We saw judgments rise as people were in fear for their families. Judgment of those wearing a mask or those not wearing a mask. Judgment of how things are handled or not. Judgment of what’s essential or not.
It seems to me that this is a reflection of how our society was trained early on, before our current generations, and has been slightly suppressed but not eliminated. It is time to look within ourselves and be the light the world needs to see. See through the darkness that has been growing in our society and be the beacon of light. See the light in others with compassion and understanding.
Use your Harmonizers to spread peace, love, joy and compassion to those in your home, your neighborhood and your community. Put your intention into your Harmonizers for a healing to occur within those who are in pain and suffering, those who have had prejudices against them, their families or friends.
Let’s join together and be one, one peaceful country, one peaceful world, filled with people assisting others, lending a hand when one is needed, looking for the good in others and seeing that instead of color, gender or country of origin.
I believe that having a Harmonizer in every community will begin to shift the consciousness from hate and judgment to harmony and understanding.
Please join us and put your intention for peace into your Harmonizer and help us create light where there was darkness. If you purchase a Harmonizer in June to be a part of our mission to spread harmony, we will donate 25% of your Harmonizer purchase to an organization to help stop social injustices. This is just one of the things that we do to help create lasting change in our country and around the world.
