You Have Purpose-Sending Your Ripples Across the Water

“I alone cannot change the world, but I can cast a stone across the waters to create many ripples.”
― Mother Teresa

YOU are a LIVING MIRACLE. No one else in the world is exactly like you. How incredible is that?! When you believe this and live this as your truth, imagine the love and inspiration you can give to the world!

Your name might not make the headlines, or maybe it will, (maybe it has) but either way, when you believe in yourself, and share yourself: your inspiration, love, gratitude, healing, mercy, kindness, generosity, art, music, dance, words, story, whatever makes you uniquely and wonderfully you, You cause ripples in the water…and as one life is touched, so is another, and another, and so on. 

From Wikpedia

If you are interested more in seeing this effect happen in life, a good movie is Pay It Forward (2000)

Your life makes a mark on the world—every day you have a choice to determine what that mark will look like–every day you have a choice about how your mark will be left on the lives of others.

The Healing Power of Sharing Your Story

In my time here in the blogging community I have had the sacred opportunity to read people’s stories-and share my own. The stories that come from deep within our hearts…the ones that make you feel..because you know that could be your story too, or someone else’s story has already been part of your own story. There is great power in how our story—the way we make sense of our experience—effects and impacts our healing journey.

I am grateful for the healing power of our storiesby sharing them we have the ability to heal.—Until I was able to admit openly my struggle with depression, healing was pretty much null and void. But when I began to share—which happened because I finally was able to witness my story in my heart—the healing began, and continues…

What is it like for you to feel and know your own story?

I am grateful for the gifts of strength and survival that we were created with, so that even in the midst of suffering, somehow we have the courage to live—it always amazed me in my days as a spiritual counselor in the hospitals, how those who decided they were not going to be defined by their illness and instead continued to be themselves, were the ones who lived life, and those who let their fear consume them, or the disease define them, slowly or quickly withered. Your journey of healing is effected by how you make sense of and share your story of suffering, illness, loss, divorce, etc.

When I was afraid of my depression, it consumed me—I didn’t want to admit it was a part of me so my depression had control, but when I accepted that “My depression is a part of me, but I will not let it define me,” I became in control, and my healing journey continues to happen because this has become the  story I now live my life by.

  • When you are ready, put your own words in place of mine or create your own powerful statement! And if you already have one–congratulations to you!

How has sharing your story lead to healing in your life?

A Healing Blessing from Me to You:

May you be surrounded by healing love, a healing love that comes from all of creation, and gently and powerfully calls your name. And in those moments when you cry out, may the depths of your heart be heard by all the angels who are there to protect you and by the love of the Divine–who is there to carry you when you don’t have the strength to carry yourself. And may all the blessings that are good & pure and full of light & harmony be with you now and always.

Blessings, Erin, Bella Bleue
