This is a guest post from Karen Palmer, the founder of The #Globalkindness Revolution.
It all began with a thought. I thought it is almost my birthday what do I wish for? I am honestly living my dream life and have been happily married for 23 years to my best friend. I have a beautiful 21 year old daughter who is manifesting her dreams. I work as a Conscious Dog Trainer, Success/Mindful Coach and Kundalini Yoga Instructor. I am happier than I have ever been in my whole life but it was not always that way. I reflected back to the years when I was suffering in silence as a victim of domestic abuse and when I was addicted to drugs and alcohol. Those were some hard times but in that time I learned these three steps that I believe can help anyone manifest anything. I began to think of how I changed my thoughts and all the external circumstances changed too. Now my life is about helping people and animals step into their greatness. I decided on my birthday in December of 2014 to make a wish that Global Kindness go viral. Then I remembered the three steps that changed my life. I bet you want to know what those three steps are; they are very simple but you need to choose to believe your thoughts will become things.
Let your imagination and emotions run wild for 68 seconds. Thinking wouldn’t it be great if……..
The idea of global kindness made me feel really good. I thought about it and imagined how I could help it spread. Then I remembered the how’s are up to the Universe. My job is to be super focused and clear on what I want. I choose to see a world where we can use social media for good. I have a great community online and followers on social media. Wouldn’t it be great if everyone would help spread kindness. Then the thought popped in my head I can make a video and ask people to do one act of kindness and I asked them to share the video and post what their act was so we as a community could focus on the good things people are doing. It was amazing people shared the video and posted from all over the world. I heard from London, Africa, Ireland, New Zealand, Canada, and all over the United States. I knew this wish was divinely inspired through me but that our world was ready for Global Kindness to go Global. Every day I would let my imagination go. Then I would feel how happy I was when I thought about all the ways I could help spread kindness. I know what you think about you bring about.
Take Action Steps in the Direction of your Dream ( Even if they are baby steps. ) The Universe is watching.
I began to journal any ideas that came to me after I imagined. I decided to create Global Kindness TV. I set up an appointment with my nephew who is a professional videographer and I got in touch with the International Random Acts of Kindness Foundation. I asked local stores in my area if they would donate a product and I set up a website. I live in a beautiful town that is filled with tourists from all over the world. It is a magical place where all races get along. I thought this would be the perfect place to begin filming Global Kindness TV. This would be the City of Kindness and I would be the host and give a gift to a stranger on the street with a “Tag You’re It” card asking them to Pay it forward and share on our website what they did so we could focus on kindness and all the good things people are doing. Many of my friends in my social networks heard about what I was doing and asked me to be a guest blogger for them. I was really seeing how powerful my thoughts and intentions really are and I was about to see things get even better. The dream was big and I knew invisible helpers would be guiding my steps. I started doing several online talk shows featuring people and organizations who were being part of the solution and we collaborated to cross-promote each other.
Allow the Universe to take care of the details and be grateful
Many of my friends in my social networks heard about what I was doing and asked me to be a guest blogger for them. I was getting invitations to be on popular podcasts. My social media as @MindfulMediaMom had grown to over 30,000 followers. I was teaming up with other organizations and impacting many lives daily. I was really seeing how powerful my thoughts and intentions really are and I was about to see things get even better. The dream was big and I knew invisible helpers would be guiding my steps. I started doing several online talk shows featuring people and organizations who were being part of the solution and we collaborated to cross-promote each other. I connected with several National Kindness Leaders and co-created #TeamKindness my two girlfriends also wanted to use social media for a higher good and we co-created www.facebook.com/spiritualitygonewild the movement kept growing and hundreds of thousands of people were watching and sharing. I am now a recording artist with musical coloring kindness activity books. My advice to anyone who reads this and wants to share their message and gifts globally, is to JUST START. Let go of the how and get ready for the wow. Enjoy the magical moments and the journey, trust in your inner guidance, and shine your light as bright as you can.
