Give One Get Many!

Acts of Kindness for Breast Cancer

By  Elaine Silver – Emissary of Divine Law and Love.

One afternoon, in the summer of 1999, as part of my annual summer music tour out west, I was driving south on Route 68 heading towards Carmel, CA.  There was a lot of traffic heading in both directions, and when I got to a side street on my right, a woman was waiting to make a left turn to head north on Route 68. There just happened to be a break in the traffic heading north, so I stopped to allow her to make that left turn.  As she drove past me, she blew me a kiss, which not only took me by surprise, but it really made my day!  It just felt so good and gave me new faith in people who are strangers.  In fact I am still basking in that loving light as I recall the event.

Since that experience, whenever someone gives me a break in the traffic flow, I blow him/her a kiss too.  I hope and imagine that it lifts their spirits as it did for me, and continues to do for me, so many years later, as the ripple effect is Infinite.

What we set in motion keeps going.  Why not have it be a small (or big) act of kindness?  It builds upon itself, per the following research quoted from a 2002 article from Oprah’s website: “Can one person acting nobly spread goodness in the world?
‘Absolutely,’ suggests research by Jonathan Haidt, PhD, an associate professor of psychology at the University of Virginia. Haidt coined the term elevation to describe the emotion we feel when we encounter evidence of what he calls moral beauty.

Seeing—or even just reading about—others’ courage, compassion, or generosity can not only make us better people but increase the likelihood we’ll do good works of our own.

‘Elevation seems to have a ripple effect, triggering cognitive, emotional, and behavioral changes,’ Haidt says. ‘It makes people more open, more loving, grateful, compassionate, and forgiving.’

These feelings of elevation actually raise personal vibration.  When we raise our vibration, we can more easily attract things and situations that are wanted, such as physical healing.  And it’s very important to be clear and focus upon what it is we want, rather than what we don’t want.

I believe that the Universe always says “Yes.”  If we are continually focused on what is NOT desired, the Universe may very well demonstrate: “Yes! You DON’T want that.  And here is MORE of what you do not desire.”

This also shows us contrast, and when we become aware that we may be creating what we don’t desire, we can consciously move to better-feeling thoughts.  This is a practice and can take time and attention.

  • Do an act of Kindness for yourself.
  • Have the Intention to put your Attention on what it is you want.
  • As soon as you discover that you’re feeling any Tension, see this as contrast and a nudge from the Universe to “Let Go and Let God.”
  • Surrendering to what is can be a sacred act we do for ourselves and even those around us.

The more we practice this “Art of Allowing” the more we can be in the Flow.

I am very grateful for random acts of kindness being promoted and becoming more and more a part of humanity’s awareness.

9 Reasons Singing is GOOD for You During Breast Cancer

The plain fact is that singing is GOOD for you! It comes through your communication or 5th chakra, and is symbolized by the color blue. Sound therapist Jovita Wallace states, “Sound vibrations massage your aura, going straight to what’s out of balance and fixing it.” We all need a healthy throat center and we all need to communicate feelings of Truth, which serve the world. Science has shown many benefits of singing and chanting. Studies into the health benefits of singing conducted at Canterbury University showed positive associations between singing and feelings of well-being: Singing:

  1. improves one’s mood. It releases the same feel-good brain chemicals as sex and chocolate!
  2. is very effective as a stress reliever and improves sleep
  3. releases pain-relieving endorphins in the brain
  4. improves posture
  5. increases lung capacity
  6. clears sinuses and respiratory tubes
  7. improves mental alertness
  8. tones facial and stomach muscles
  9. boosts the immune system, helping to fight disease and prolonging life expectancy

Researchers at the University of Manchester have discovered that the sacculus, a little organ in the inner ear, responds to frequencies commonly found in music, and is connected to the part of the brain responsible for registering pleasure. This sacculus is only responsive to low frequency, high intensity sounds, which include singing, and it responds within a few seconds of hearing that kind of sound. So you get immediate pleasure when you sing, regardless of what it sounds like to anyone else. Now if there are no criticisms or put downs from anyone else to cause you pain, you ́ll find the experience enjoyable and get release of good old pleasure-giving endorphins as well. Singing provides catharsis across the full emotional spectrum. It can give a directly-experienced, felt-sense of happiness. It́’s a mood lifter and anti depressant with no side effects. And it has been clearly documented by many health professionals that mental and physical health are intimately linked.

As a high school student in the 70’s, I was accepted into All State Chorus, All North Jersey Chorus and attended summer camp at Westminster Choir College in Princeton, NJ. What I remember as the highlight of these experiences is the feelings of upliftment and even Oneness with the group dynamic, which also created a wonderful sense of community. And now as a presenter of a fusion- style kirtan, affectionately named “Kirtonica,” I am again feeling and helping to inspire the feeling in others, a sense of Oneness, as well as love, devotion, joy, bliss and light. Chanting creates an experience of the Divine within, and I can think of nothing better than to co-create this expanded awareness with a group of willing souls. This state is the ultimate in healing the entire being. Jai Bhagwan and Namaste’!
