Peace On Your Wings – An Etsy Adventure

There is great importance in how we feel and act towards ourselves and others; in the emotions we decide to feel and in the energy we decide to put back into the universe.  Say what you will about vibrations and energies, but it has been scientifically proven that the emotions and vibrations we emit do in fact have a physical impact on the world around us.

Right now, with all the chaos going on, perhaps unintentionally, we have collectively been emitting a lot of stress, anger, sadness and fear.  Without a doubt, immense waves of love and comradery and acceptance are being displayed throughout the world as well, but one may argue that our marches and protests have all stemmed not only from places of love and peace but also from frustration, anger, and fear.

What is vitally important to remember is that love really does trump hate.  The way to lessen the hate in this world is to counter it with unconditional love.  I think it’s safe to assume that a lot of us are feeling angry and saddened and maybe even helpless, but we cannot afford to express anger or hate toward our adversaries as that does nothing but add to the problem.  It is redundant and ineffective, like a feedback loop.

Instead, we must change how we feel and act on a personal level, and only then can we proceed to change the world for the better.  That is one reason why I made these postcards.  Originally, I intended for them to be another colorful and peaceful way to communicate with senators/representatives/congress/the administration/etc.  I wanted to make something that could send a clear message but in a positive manner; something that could potentially brighten the days of the individuals from whom we are desperately asking for help.  To show that we are not only gravely concerned about the current state of affairs, but that we have the capacity to love and peacefully stand up for each other nonetheless.

Sadako Sasaki was a 12-year-old girl from Hiroshima.  She died of radiation-induced leukemia but still managed to spread love and hope to everyone around her.  Her story is now known the world over as a symbol of hope, love, perseverance and peace.

Though, regardless of political denomination, my hope is that a message of peace and positivity is able to translate to anyone who sees these images.  If even just a slight hint of peace or love is received, it’ll be worth it.

Granted, this is a very small contribution to the cause, but if something like this can help or affect at least one person in a positive way, then that’s one more bit of love we can put back into our world.  Whether it is sent to family members from your vacation, state representatives in asking for help, or even the administration itself, I hope these are sent with peace and love in mind.

We must never underestimate the power of positivity in times of great negativity.  The universe will listen.

Peace. 🙂
