Today, November 11th, is Remembrance Day. The day we honor all those who have served our country, and all those who have been affected by war.
Many of us have the day off, but regardless, I hope that we all take some time today to sit in stillness, even just for a minute, in meditation or prayer, thinking of world peace.
It’s not as far fetched as one might think. While our media showers us with images of violence and war constantly, the world is actually more peaceful now than it may have ever been. We are now so interdependent, and connected, growing more so every day that for many nations it would be unthinkable to go to war against each other. The European Union is a great example. We are slowly getting there, and the more loving, peaceful intention we send out into the world, the faster it will happen.
Today is also the Scorpio new moon. A new moon is a powerful time to set an intention, but this Scorpio new moon is “….creating an opening for us to shapeshift into a new form. Scorpio embodies the cycle of transformation and her magic medicine teaches us how to shed outmoded forms of being in order to rise to new heights.” – Mystic Mamma
As we meditate and pray for world peace, we must recognize that change comes from within. Indeed, our inner worlds are all that we can control, and inner peace and self mastery at the individual level is how we get to world peace on the global scale.
You as an individual have the power to create this shift on a global scale. What happens in our hearts sends ripples out into the world around us. As within, so without.
“Be the change that you wish to see in the world” -Mahatma Ghandi
Join us today, as we use the energy of the stars and our collective consciousness to wish, pray, hope and believe in peace, for all of humanity.
