Into every life a little rain must fall. Sadly, sometimes monsoons fall. And sadly, sometimes Earthquakes shake the rain into our souls.
Haiti is in dire need of … well, of everything. There are no hospitals, not enough doctors, not enough supplies, food, shelter, money, water, care takers, parents of children, guardians, security. They need all of these things so desperately and we, as human beings, have a responsibility to help our brothers and sisters in need. If you can donate, please do so.
If you cannot donate money or goods, however, you are not without resources to help! Haitians also need things that cannot be held in hands. They need hope, peace, love, inspiration, and emotional rescue! Being that all living things are connected by The Divine Light, we can offer these things by meditating, praying, loving, and putting out healing energy that will travel across miles to the suffering. Ganesha can help!
Ganesha (Ganesh,) the loving, lovable, jovial, curious, dancing Elephant God is here to help! Ganesha is the Hindu God of overcoming obstacles. Ganesh Mall Blog has an excellent mantra to chant to Ganesha. Om Vakratundaya Hum (OHM VAH-krah-TOON-die-ah hum) resonates in your head, your heart, and eventually your soul until it flows out of you like healing waves, crossing land and sea, to comfort and heal those in need. (and, of course, Ganesha is here to help us all – feel free to call on him for your own life, too!)
Please, do what you can. Disaster affects us all. We are one. Sat Nam.
