Food (Shortages) for Thought

*** This post isn’t intended to create fear, or about going out and hoarding food or panic buying, but rather to get people thinking… ***

The photos in this post are from a local grocery store. During my last few trips to the store, the produce section has looked, well, quite scarce. (These photos actually show more stock than what I saw in the same store just two days prior.) I inquired with a few different employees asking why the shelves looked so empty. They told me “The truck hasn’t made it in for a few days,” yet nobody could really explain why the truck couldn’t make it…

This issue isn’t just isolated to my local store or town. If you feel inclined, research the MEANINGS, and look for past PATTERNS IN HISTORY, as they relate to: Food Shortages, Famine and Global Food Scarcity. A lack of food availability can be caused by several factors including wild fires, weather, climate change, war, inflation, crop failure, a labor crisis, population imbalance, pandemics and/or government policies.

More food for thought: Ninety percent, (yes, 90%) of the global trade grain is controlled by just four multinational corporations, there are only NINE big food companies in control of what is sold and bought in retail outlets. (source: Mark Hyman, MD and Author)

As you research these topics, I ask you to consider ways that you can assist your family and your community when it comes to food you have access to. Perhaps it is time to learn how to grow your own food, (and a little extra to help those in your community who are food insecure)? Perhaps it is time to build a relationship with a local farmer, support your local produce stands, or start subscribing to a Community-Supported Agriculture (CSA) subscription? Perhaps it is time to learn to preserve food and/or start learning how to can food? (Food canning is a method of food preservation in which food is processed and sealed in an airtight container. Canned food typically has a shelf life of 1-5 years.) Perhaps it is time to start building a community garden, (or a few)? Perhaps it is time to become more self-sustainable when it comes to the food we eat? Perhaps…you will come up with a new way?

Again, this post isn’t intended to create fear, or to send you out to panic buy, but rather to get you to expand your thinking and to increase your awareness on the topic of food shortages.

Love Will Raise Your Consciousness

Did you know that 💟 LOVE 💟 is the most connective of all emotions and thus love RAISES CONSCIOUSNESS? By raising your consciousness, you become more aware of everything: YOURSELF, other PEOPLE, your surroundings, and the WORLD around you!

Accepting What is, and Manifesting Love, Hope, and Compassion!

Accepting “what is” is a “recognition” of what is going on around us and not necessarily an “agreement” to what is happening. With that said, what are your thoughts manifesting?? (I hope that it isn’t fear.) Remember if something is “real” in your brain, it will be “real” in the physical. In this potent time, what do you wish to attract? Negativity, resistance, anger, disappointment, chaos or fear? Or love, hope, abundance, inspiration and compassion?

Emotions carry their own vibration. When you come from a place of fear or doubt, you decrease your vibration. Emotions like love, peace, or joy carry a vibration between 500–600hz, while fear vibrates at 100hz?

94021886_862141730974215_6444068016366813184_oIt is vital that you align your thoughts to manifest positive outcomes. (This doesn’t mean you are walking around “happy” with what is going on in the world around you, but rather how you are reacting to it.) When you come from a place of love, peace, or joy, you are not just raising your own vibration, but doing your part to raise the vibration of your home, your neighborhood, your town, your state and even that of the planet as a whole. Something so useful right now.

You can raise your vibration through meditation, grounding (or earthling); listening to music or singing; utilizing a creative outlet, focusing on gratitude, spending time in nature, as well as accepting what is.

It is also helpful to remember to stay hydrated, mindful of what you eat, and take breaks from both the news and social media as needed, if not all together.

Accept what is and do your best to try to raise your vibration. It is something small we can do, but its impact ripples far wider than you think.

What if stay-at-home orders, quarantining and social distancing are giving us the space and time that we need to reflect and evaluate the current path that we are on?

What if during this time, we are being given the opportunity to make changes or adjustments, or to choose an entirely different path all together?
