Are things really that bad?

I was watching the news last night, it seems like everything is falling apart. The housing market is getting worse, more banks are failing, more people are being laid off and the economy is just plain stuck in muck. Now, I don’t know about you but it is so easy to get caught up in this trap of everything is bad nothing good can come out of this mess so everyone is scared. I have found myself getting caught up in the negative atmosphere, it is so easy to do. I have been looking at all I see through negative eyes instead of looking for the good. I kept trying to be positive and look for the good but the negative just kept coming back to haunt me, especially when  Read more ………..

So what do you think?  What did the ancients say about this time in our lives?  To find out go here.  Is the News Media helping to create this mess through collective consciousness?  What do you think we should do?

Love and Blessings,

    AngelBaby, people empower themselves when they consciously choose not to watch or listen to the news. Other people will decide what they believe is important and try to impose this on viewers as headlines. The most shocking stories will build audiences of viewers who allow themselves to be brainwashed by conflict and negative energy outside themselves. Rest assured, each person has free will and can shift focus. If you choose to become a more selective thinker, and to become aware of your feelings as they are generated, then you attune differently to the flow of energy. You learn to release what does not serve you and make new choices that bolster positive energy.

    Pretty good advice from the Hopi Indians:

    Where are you living?
    What are you doing?
    What are your relationships?
    Are you in right relation?
    Where is your water?
    Know your garden.
    It is time to speak your Truth.
    Create your community.
    Be good to each other.
    And do not look outside yourself for the leader.

    I’ll just add this, people might want to begin listening to their intuition a little more too. Also, listen to what the indigenious people of the planet are saying now, like your already doing Angel. They have a much closer relationship with Her than anyone sitting in a man-made concrete canyon in NYC

    We’re having a baby and its going to be a little painful in my opinion. We’ll remember more of the joy than the pain.

    Liara,

    Thank you for all your love and support. I know these things but sometimes we all need to be reminded. It is so good that we help each other through out our lives, that is what friends are for.

    Beau,

    i liked the part about the river, it just makes so much sense to me. I have always believed that we should listen to the elders they are more spiritual than allot of people realize.

    Congratulations on your baby. Let me know when he or she is born, it is so exciting. 😀

  5. Today is a bit of a struggle for all of us and yet I can’t help feeling a twinge of the positive. My partner and I were talking about the general (global) situation recently and have the hope, perhaps a sense, that despite the doom and gloom of the media and, yes, the economic situation, we could be turning back to all the things that really matter. Thinking of our neighbours, while we may be struggling yet thinking of those who entered this new journey with much less and now things being much more dire, we find compassion to help them, to share. Being materialistic has not served us…as we are beginning to see. I think you are right that the media collective consciousness is helping create this mess but in seeing it played out on our screens, in our ears, on our eyes it is, hopefully, returning us to an empathy, compassion, kindness and love for our fellow travellers on this path. We seem to have seperated from those ideals and one another over the years while in search of the material and worldly. I have hope.

    Thanks for visiting my site, Angelbaby…I always enjoy your visits and comments! Appreciate your kind words re the new look but the credit and kudos all go to Blogdumps. It is their work which looks so good!

    Old habits are hard to break. But if we are to survive, we must break from religiously looking at the news.These programs make their fortunes on other people’s fears and heartache.

    “Do not look outside yourself” and “we are the hope we have been waiting for” are words of empowerment. We must reconize how powerful we are in our own world and seize those moments in each day

    This was a nice way to start my morning. Thank You!.

    Nancy,

    This is truly my biggest dream of peace and caring about our fellow man. We need to get back to the basics of life and that is Love. John had it right when he sang the song All we need is Love. We need more of that in this world and I do think this will make it happen because it is the only way we will survive. 🙂

    Love and Blessings,

    McKay,

    I agree with you completely the media does promote fear and heartache. They dwell on issues until we are sick and tired of hearing them and this is how they make their money and get their ratings. It is really sad that people make so much money off of someone’s sorrow and fear.

    I love the message from the Hopi Elders, especially about the river. It is so empowering and lets us know that we will make it through all of this just fine.

  9. In Asia, we’re also experiencing the same thing. Thousand of workers were laid off. Others cut down their working hours to 3 days per week. Everyone doing the best of they can. It almost heart-wrecking sometimes to read it in the news. I hope everything will gets better soon. Have a nice day Angelbaby 🙂

    Bluecrystaldude,

    It seems to be world wide not just here in America. I have allot of hope and I know that things are going to get better soon. I think that the news should be banned because they are adding to the mess. I hope you have a wonderful day! 😉

  11. Individuals are feeling the pinch. It is up to their families and friends and neighbours to find a way to help those who need help, not by giving things that destroy pride but by helping the down and out get back on their feet, so to speak.

    As for media like the news, when will they get it that good news can sell also. I don’t listen to the news often.

  12. AngelBaby says:

    Gimme A Dream,

    I think all of this is going to bring everyone back to what is important in life like family, community, friends and Love. The change is going to be for the best and this is the only way it would happen, we needed to be slapped upside the head because we were not listening. 😉

    Love and Blessings,
