Last week I listened to a podcast of Charles Eisenstein speaking about political hope and the idea that movements emerge through us, we don't actually make them happen. It made me think about the word "Emergency" and I know from my experience as a social worker that something new will always "emerge" whenever someone experiences a crisis or an emergency. It may be a new insight, awareness and skill or a greater sense of understanding and compassion for human suffering. But there is always something that 'emerges."
Once something emerges, it takes on a life force of its own, and this is where our true power of influence lies. What kind of environment are you creating to nurture what is emerging from the multiple emergencies all over our planet?
Deep in my heart I believe that hope, compassion, kindness as well as a recognition of our need for connection and collaboration are emerging as movement that is birthing itself through each one of us. If we stay open and willing, instead of contracted and in fear, we can allow these energies to move through us birth these new paradigms that so many are longing for. Movements are birthed through the love and wisdom in our hearts, so what are you allowing to emerge from your heart today?
If you are experiencing a crisis, you may be feeling overwhelmed and uncertain about the future, in which case it may feel impossible to sense what good might be emerging. If you are are experiencing a crisis or feeling anxiety or depression, I would love to help you with this.

I’ve always loved the word Delight! To me it means “of the light” and with all the darkness and fear in the world today, I wanted to create a place where we can gather together, restore our connection to the light and help one another to Delight The World with love, kindness, gentleness, beauty, compassion and grace. —Amy Rose, LCSW
