In Africa there is a concept known as ‘ubuntu’ – the profound sense that we are human only through the humanity of others; that if we are to accomplish anything in this world it will in equal measure be due to the work and achievement of others.
“One day, a western anthropologist went to Africa to study the social behavior of an indigenous tribe. He proposed a game to the children and they willingly agreed to be part of it. He put a basket filled with fruits underneath a tree and told the children that whoever would reach the basket first would win the whole basket and could eat the fruits all by him- or herself.
He lined them all up and raised his hand to give the start signal. Ready. Set. Go!
The children took each other’s hands and started running together. They all reached the basket at the same time. Then they sat down in a big circle and enjoyed the fruits together, laughing and smiling all the time.
The anthropologist could not believe what he saw and he asked them why they had waited for each other as one could have taken the whole basket all for him- or herself.
The children shook their heads and replied, “Ubuntu, how can one of us be happy if all the others are sad?”
What if we all lived our lives with this in mind? What if you opened your heart and mind to embracing the human in humanity? Our world will change when we realize that we are all a part of each other. We live in a holographic universe. There is no separation between you and I.
Call to action: Do one thing today that benefits someone else. If you could do one thing that uplifts another person, not only will you feel so good, you will be paying an act of kindness forward…….. Spread the love!

Are you ready for healing energy? You can tap into this vortex of energy at any time. All that is required is releasing the old patterns that you are clinging on to that no longer serve the expanding, loving you, that you already are. It is a shift in awareness. Allow this healing energy in. Embrace it, accept it, and attract it. It is all around you, at all times. You are a part of this healing energy. Breath in the rich vibration of love into your heart and feel the healing energy penetrate every cell of your being. The universe is alive with this healing energy and is waiting for you to coalesce with it. So, what will it take for you to become conscious of this healing energy? Unfortunately many people wait until there is a crisis to wake them up from the illusion of separation. Just shift your thoughts to nourishing ones, uplifting ones, and positive ones. Once you begin training your mind, you will feel the healing energy pulse through your veins. You will then begin to viscerally experience this healing energy circulate inside of you and all around you. You will then radiate it out into the world helping shift others in need. Your smile, kind word or soft touch will penetrate, and transmute these old patterns of fear in others too. So why wait for a healing crisis when we can tap into this energy now. It is yours for the asking!
