God bless the children. Those innocent souls who have been hidden from the beauty of life. Their God given right to childhood is unable to bloom as a harsh and brutal reality of ugliness and sorrow is a daily challenge for them as they simply try to survive. A mother’s comforting kiss and a father’s strong but gentle hand do not live in their neighborhood. Unfortunately, the only love they have been shown is a high definition attack on the dignity of human beings and life itself. This way of life is handed down, and literally beaten down, from generation to generation.
The vicious cycle of abuse is broken through strength, support, and the healing power of love. It does happen. I have met many survivors who have broken the chains that once held them back. Their new sense of freedom leaves their old pain in the dust as they move on. Their strength humbles me.
Love will trump hate every time. It’s just a matter of what we choose to focus on. Everything expands, and our collective consciousness has brought us to this point. All of us have a role to play since we’re all connected. Together, we can do this. We can make an impact on that collective consciousness and expand on feelings of hope for the future that will make this vision a reality. But, we have to work together and see the world through the eyes of a child who still believes in the power of his imagination. Instead of being beaten down, this child is being brought up to bloom and grow in a world full of dreams and real possibilities just waiting to happen. They believe in themselves and in others because they have been shown a reason to believe. Seeing is believing, and sometimes believing is seeing.
God bless the children. Tuck them in safely. Comfort them. Teach them. Help them as they grow. They will be returning the favor one day very soon. Protect them from evil. Shelter them. Those who have been raised in the coldness of a world without love will one day be passing down all they know about life to the new little ones in their family. Will the cycle of abuse be broken, or will it continue to grow and be handed down again and again?
If you or someone you know suffers from pain inflicted by abuse, please give Reiki a try. I have seen it work wonders for people. Reiki always brings two things to any situation – love and hope. Every person who receives Reiki and allows it to work its wonders makes our future a little bit brighter as their lives transform and everything they are connected to benefits. It’s never too late to learn how to accept the healing powers of love. Reiki is love from above.
