I'm often asked about the posters I create for One Wise Life Facebook. The messages come from daily time invested in quiet thought and meditation. I ask one simple question, "What do the readers of One Wise Life want to know..." and whatever comes through is then crafted into a graphic. Writing and creating graphics is one of the most enjoyable things I do. It never feels like work...and many messages that come through end up up becoming articles for publication, teachings, and even healing messages for those in need. If it finds its way to you and you benefit from it...then I consider that using the Facebook social medium in it's greatest capacity.
While many use social media for social connection (and I do this, too)...I believe it can also be one of the most powerful tools we can utilize to improve our lives! WHAT??? Yes...read that again. :)
Social media isn't going away and I've chosen to figure out how it will benefit me for the greatest good (personally and Universally).
Too often, experiences from news to personal exchanges with others can dampen our mood, our thoughts, and our energy. YES...you have the power to think, be and do different no matter what life throws your way...but how nifty to have the support built-in to your life through social media. After all, you're there any way, usually every day, so why not have it work FOR YOU.
How often have you been so tapped IN to your feelings and notice just the right song to match and express how you feel on the radio? Or...run into a friend who provides you just the right message or unsolicited compliment that gets you back on track?
How many times have you gone through your Facebook newsfeed and have seen a poster with just the right message helping you align with your feelings, solidified your thoughts, and even find new and improved perspective about what you're going through? How often has a poster simply made you laugh?
Create a space of healing and welcome improved awareness and expansion with social media.
ACTIVELY create a life and lifestyle that supports who you are and where you want to go. If seeing the posters help you...then be sure to receive the notifications for them, expand the energy of positivity and healing by clicking "LIKE", and even SHARE them. If it helped you it'll surely help another.
You see, energy expands on what you choose to focus on....so focus on the positive, the healing, the growth. Expand upon that (even more) by helping others, as well. The law of giving and receiving are always at play: if you need help...you'll find improvement by helping others. If you want more success...you'll find it more easily by helping others succeed. This works in "real life" and translates immensely well on social media, too (Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Pinterest, Instagram, etc...)
Utilize social media for the greatest good.
In fact, not utilizing social media for the greatest good is mostly wasted time on this unique platform.
I often share posters that've helped me...resonate with me. I recommend several Facebook pages to follow so that you have a constant flow of positivity and healing messages appear in your newsfeed from a variety of sources and voices.
YOU can positively help the world by helping others.
One person at a time...
Several people at a time...
You need not be an "authority" or a "coach" ... you simply have to be open minded and aware of what feels right and good and pass it along. Be both the student and the teacher.
