Continent? What Continent?

There is an entire forgotten continent, or so it seems to me at times. I’m speaking, of course, of Africa. But I don’t have to look that far to realize that the black race has gotten the short end of the stick. With the passing of the first anniversary of Hurricane Katrina, I am reminded of just how horrific the history of the black race has been and continues to be.

So I’m grateful that there are fabulously wealthy individuals in the western world who are doing something about that. In this country, I’m especially grateful to Harry Connick, Jr. for keeping the light on what continues to be an unforgivable apathy toward our own fellow citizens. Do you really think that same abandonment would occur if, for example, Katrina had wiped out much of Kennebunkport? Or the Hamptons? Or Martha’s Vineyard?

The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, coupled with the hard-to-fathom wealth of Warren Buffett, have the power to provide incredible healing in Africa and elsewhere. And there’s Bono, the Irish statesman/rocker who continues to tirelessly shed light where there is so much need. Other wealthy celebrities are doing that as well, but sometimes we would rather focus on the lurid gossip of their personal lives.

Over the years, as I’ve watched the news reports of starving children in Africa, I’ve had the breath knocked out of me and been brought to my knees at the site of emaciated, huge-eyed, dark-skinned children dying on the screen…because they haven’t got even the basic necessities for survival. This is no Hollywood movie. This is the ultimate reality show.

So what can I do?

Through the channelings of Kryon by Lee Carroll (bless you, Lee), I have recently been made aware of just how little I really contribute in the “name” of calling myself a lightworker and a healer. Saying I’m one and being one are two completely different things.

How much time do I devote to prayer and healing of those places on Earth that are just begging for the light to wash over them?

So I will heed Kryon’s call to wake up…to focus less on my own personal dramas and to take the power that God has placed within me, within us all, and to use it toward good.

Now I know there will be plenty reading this who will say, “Who do you think you are? How can you possibly have any impact through your prayer or healings on what is such a seemingly insurmountable situation?”

I can and I do.

What occurs as I sit in solitude and direct my attention to those forgotten places encourages me to keep doing what I’m doing. I feel the power of God course through my body, into my hands, overflowing my heart…the compassion and love so powerful that I just know it is helping.

Africa—I will not forget you. Katrina victims—I will not forget you.

As I raise my own vibration, I will do whatever I can to help raise the vibration of this beautiful Earth and her children. Won’t you do the same?
