How to See the Future? Create it!

“The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.”
Eleanor Roosevelt

For decades, humans have been shortening the planet’s lifespan.  One of the biggest threats is global warming caused mainly by human pollution.

Spiritually, when everyone comes from a place of love, we will stop causing the pollution, war, and the deforestation that threatens all of humanity because we’ll focus on ending suffering.  Earth is not an easy place to live so many people have disconnected from their own hearts.  Tired and discouraged, they sleep-walk through life, looking away from the problems and the severity of our human impact on the Earth that is leading all to dire consequences.

When you wake-up and see things clearly, you become the great hope in the world.

How can you become fully awake?

Meditation is the one of the best ways to truly awaken to what matters most and to connect with the love in your heart.  In a state of peace and tranquility, your  mind becomes open to answers.  Your higher-self, spiritual guides, and the Creator will come through. Deep in trance, you can achieve far more heightened awareness than in your daily waking-state and discover the steps you can take to rise-up and become the best version of you.  You can discover your life’s purpose and learn how to fulfill it.

Education is key.  Once you understand the actual problems that our planet is facing, you can more easily find a solution.  In fact, you can become solution.

Remaining calm is also important.  When I look at the horrors of humanity displayed in the media for all to see, it’s easy to become outraged and judgmental.   However, we’ve all made mistakes.  Rather than judge and point fingers, focus on solutions.  Try to see things from the perspectives of other people and work to find solutions that are mutually beneficial.  It can’t also be done so compassion and diplomacy goa long way.

New York Times on-line describes how one industry is a major cause of global warming:

“Agriculture of all types produces greenhouse gases that warm the planet, but meat production is especially harmful – and beef is the most environmentally damaging form of meat. Some methods of cattle production demand a lot of land, contributing to destruction of forests; the trees are typically burned, releasing carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. Other methods require huge amounts of water and fertilizer to grow food for the cows.

The cows themselves produce emissions of methane, a potent greenhouse gas that causes short-term warming. Meat consumption is rising worldwide as the population grows, and as economic development makes people richer and better able to afford meat.

This is worrisome: Studies have found that if the whole world were to start eating beef at the rate Americans eat it, produced by the methods typically used in the United States, that alone might erase any chance of staying below an internationally agreed-upon limit on global warming. Pork production creates somewhat lower emissions than beef production, and chicken is lower still. So reducing your meat consumption, or switching from beef and pork to chicken in your diet, are both moves in the right direction. Of course, as with any kind of behavioral change meant to benefit the climate, this will only make a difference if lots of other people do it, too, reducing the overall demand for meat products.”

How can you save the world?  Simple, quick and easy.  Stop Eating Beef!  

Go one step further and become Vegetarian or Vegan.  I did.  In the last two years, many of my hypnosis clients have also become vegetarian and vegan.  Through their new Vegetarian and Vegan eating habits, they’re not just are saving the lives of animals, they’re saving your life and the life of everyone on the planet.  If they can do it, so can you!

New York Times provides more ways to extend the life of the planet as follows:

“You can reduce your own carbon footprint in lots of simple ways, and most of them will save you money. You can plug leaks in your home insulation to save power, install a smart thermostat, switch to more efficient light bulbs, turn off the lights in any room where you are not using them, drive fewer miles by consolidating trips or taking public transit, waste less food, and eat less meat.

Perhaps the biggest single thing individuals can do on their own is to take fewer airplane trips; just one or two fewer plane rides per year can save as much in emissions as all the other actions combined. If you want to be at the cutting edge, you can look at buying an electric or hybrid car, putting solar panels on your roof, or both.

If you want to offset your emissions, you can buy certificates, with the money going to projects that protect forests, capture greenhouse gases and so forth. Some airlines sell these to offset emissions from their flights, and after some scandals in the early days, they started to scrutinize the projects closely, so the offsets can now be bought in good conscience. You can also buy offset certificates in a private marketplace, from companies such as TerraPass in San Francisco that follow strict rules set up by the state of California; some people even give these as holiday gifts. Yet another way: In states that allow you to choose your own electricity supplier, you can often elect to buy green electricity; you pay slightly more, with the money going into a fund that helps finance projects like wind farms.

In the end, though, experts do not believe the needed transformation in the energy system can happen without strong state and national policies. So speaking up and exercising your rights as a citizen matters as much as anything else you can do.”

Be the solution so we all have a future on this beautiful planet!
