For your consideration….

For a couple of weeks I have been given an example of a pinned balloon as a lesson in energy. I did not realize until today that I was to share it here. Let me try to explain as it has been given to me.

First remember that everything is energy. Every thought, every action and thing is energy. Energy can be changed but it can never be destroyed.

Now consider a blown up balloon pinned to a wall, on a string or in a container. The balloon is affected by everything around it but the air inside is contained. If we were to pop the balloon, the air inside would be released and “changed”. It would no longer be contained or trapped.

We are given the example of the balloon to help us think about negative energy. When we dwell on or keep thinking about negative thoughts and actions, we in fact “pin” them. We contain them. We keep them. We give them relevance. We help them which is exactly the opposite of what we want. We need to “pop” them and let them go.

This is a powerful example we have been given. I HOPE I have explained it clearly.

That is the HOPE. And so it is.


Bit by bit, piece by piece, HOPE by HOPE action steps anyone can take……

-Meditate/pray. Be still with yourself.

-Get outdoors and take in at least 10 deep breaths.

-Drink lots of water.

-Every time you feel negative energy, remember the balloon and “pop” it. Release it and let it go.


What made me smile yesterday…..

-I stayed in my PJ’s until 3:30.

-Dude is all groomed, soft and shiny.

-My freezer with great leftovers.


Love, Blessings and Gratitude,
