I was among the thousands who participated in the “Fire the Grid” project on the morning of July 17. I received emails from many friends and comments on my Gather articles from others who had said they were excited about the opportunity to be a "Messenger of Light" -- to pray and meditate for the healing of this planet and for peace on earth.
Sitting next to my husband in the quiet of our den, I was uplifted by the knowledge that so many of us were doing this at the same time around the world. I could feel the positive energy of this combined prayer consciousness. Afterwards, I thought to myself that we need to continue sending this positive energy out into the universe and spreading the loving vibrations that were set forth in this project that we participated in on July 17. Then I remembered that my good friend, Rev. Elizabeth Haugen, had started a movement designed to help do this.
Here is what she has to say about her new project, SMILE, in her own words. I hope that you’ll check it out and get involved. It will cost you nothing and will continue the work that we have already begun.
Are you ready to make a difference in our world? Are you willing, as Mahatma Gandhi said, “to be the change you wish to see in the world”? The SMILE Movement (Sharing My Inner Light Everyday) was organized for just that purpose.
Individually we, as SMILE ambassadors, are dedicated to uplifting and healing the world, one heart at a time. We seek first to show up every day as loving beings who live by the SMILE Covenant of Being. This Covenant is to:
Speak with authenticity
Model an attitude of non-judgment,
Listen deeply, and
Enrich the world.
We are also committed to recognizing and acknowledging others when they show up in positive and loving ways. When we interact with or observe someone being a positive light in the world we share SMILE Award cards with them letting them know that they have made a difference.
If you would like more information on the SMILE Movement, desire to become a SMILE ambassador, or are interested in obtaining a supply of SMILE Award cards for sharing with others, please go to our Web Site at www.smilemovement.com or e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org . There is no fee to become a SMILE ambassador.
“Individually we make a difference. Collectively we transform the world.”
