The Ripple Effect
BY MADISYN TAYLOR
Your thoughts and actions are like stones dropped into still waters causing ripples to spread as they move outward.
In a world of six billion people, it's easy to believe that the only way to initiate profound transformation is to take extreme action. Each of us, however, carries within us the capacity to change the world in small ways for better or worse. Everything we do and think affects the people in our lives, and their reactions in turn affect others. As the effect of a seemingly insignificant word passes from person to person, its impact grows and can become a source of great joy, inspiration, anxiety, or pain. Your thoughts and actions are like stones dropped into still waters, causing ripples to spread and expand as they move outward. The impact you have on the world is greater than you could ever imagine, and the choices you make can have far-reaching consequences. You can use the ripple effect to make a positive difference and spread waves of kindness that will wash over the world.
Should the opportunity arise, the recipient of a good deed will likely feel compelled to do a good deed for someone else. Someone feeling the effects of negative energy will be more likely to pass on that negative energy. One act of charity, one thoughtful deed, or even one positive thought can pass from individual to individual, snowballing until it becomes a group movement or the ray of hope that saves someone's life. Every transformation, just like every ripple, has a point of origin. You must believe in your ability to be that point of origin if you want to use the ripples you create to spread goodness. Consider the effect of your thoughts and actions, and try to act graciously as much as possible.
A smile directed at a stranger, a compliment given to a friend, an attitude of laughter, or a thoughtful gesture can send ripples that spread among your loved ones and associates, out into your community, and finally throughout the world. You have the power to touch the lives of everyone you come into contact with and everyone those people come into contact with. The momentum of your influence will grow as your ripples move onward and outward. One of those ripples could become a tidal wave of positivity.
You’re Worthy of Instant Gratification

Summary of Brenda’s February 21, 2020, channeled “Creation Energies” show at BlogTalkRadio.com/brenda-hoffman: Because of the energies many are experiencing for the first time, the world is in chaos. Most of your discomfort isn’t about the energies pummeling the earth. It’s the fear of those just awakening. Their fear of shifting beyond 3D is overwhelming the earth’s vibrations. As a result, you’re returning to your caretaker of the world mode. Stop. You’ve other roles to play. It’s time for those starting their transition to be responsible for themselves.
“What Does Peace Mean to You?” is the title of last week’s “Brenda’s Blog” – her weekly channeled blog for LifeTapestryCreations.com.
Brenda’s “Creation Energies” show and “Brenda’s Blog” contain different channeled information.
Even though you read the words and watched the films, you have yet to fully believe you are capable of creating anything. That the title of earth angel applies to you for you are little different than you have always been. So you express the correct transition words hoping that doing so will convince you as well as others that you are no longer of 3D.
Perhaps such thoughts disturb you for you want to believe. You note this indicator or that thought and pronounce yourself cured of 3D fears and actions. Yet, you believe deep within you that all is a beautiful dream that will never come to fruition for you. Even though others might experience such glories as peace and joy, you are merely an observer.
You even have difficulties believing you or anyone is capable of changing the world.
Such is similar to the beliefs of your teen years. As a teen, you likely worried about dating, classes, and interactions – believing that someone was better, smarter, prettier, or more physically talented than you. Even if you achieved some of the markers you pined for in your teen years, you were never capable of achieving them all. Years later, you probably learned that those you wished to be like in your teen years had similar doubts and fears.
So it is now. You feel you are no different than you were a few years ago. You might have some new thoughts or actions, but not enough to qualify as an earth angel. So you read the information believing such MIGHT be possible for others, but not you.
And you act accordingly. Waiting for someone to wave a magic wand in your direction. Which is no different than your teen years waiting for the cutest boy or girl to look your way. And if that cute boy or girl did not, you confirmed within yourself that you were missing some vital element.
Most of you are repeating your teens, maybe even your young adult years. Fully believing you missed the golden ring because of your image, conversation, actions, clothes, money, education, religion, and on and on. There was always something you wanted and could not create. So it is now. You believe you lack something, and if you only knew what that was, you could be the earth angel superstar we label you as.
You need nothing more to claim your earth angel status than to be.
Many of you remember extremely difficult 3D times. And as you do so, you add to your belief that even though you might score a personal victory via additional income or the right mate or job title – all could disappear in a moment. You are prepared for the worst and have a limited belief in the best.
What you have not yet accepted is that you are not of 3D. No longer do you need to hope for the best, accepting what is. You are a new being in a new world. Even though your physical being might not look that different, your inner being has evolved to meet your new world.
The only way you will change your beliefs is by creating that which gives you joy without the expected pain. Such is likely a bit in the future. Not because it has to be, but because you cannot yet believe you are different in a different world.
Do not emotionally beat yourself up, as you did in 3D, for not producing, for believing you are not an earth angel. Merely accept that your life is rapidly evolving, and those little or big thoughts of how you would prefer your life to be, have hit their mark. For your frequencies have evolved to allow that life to be.
In 3D, you needed to perform for years, maybe even decades, to create that which you pined for as a young teen. A good job, a happy family, and a stable home. Perhaps in 3D, those pieces never came together for you. Such has absolutely no bearing on your current life. Your 3D life is merely a memory of what was. You no longer require a graduation ceremony to know you are qualified. Nor do you need a specific mate to create your joy.
Yet, you continue to play by 3D rules. Believing that before you can create this, that needs to happen. Or before you find your joy, others have to find it also.
This new world is a new game with new rules. It is about instant gratification instead of “wait and see.” And instead of everyone having the same dreams, each of you is unique.
Even though you might wish to learn more about a specific subject because it is interesting to do so, that learning is not required before creating that of which you dream.
You no longer have prerequisites, as was true in 3D. Many of those prerequisites were the result of the karma you collected in 3D life after 3D life. That ended when you exited 3D. You have a clean slate. So do not pine for the time when you can be joyful, as you did in 3D. You are fully capable and worthy of instant gratification.
Do you now understand your new circle of self-love? You act on your joys, which leads to more joy and on and on. It is not about, “I will paint my masterpiece after I have taken this course.” But instead, “Wouldn’t it be fun to explore various colors or to buy a canvas I might use someday?”
Your new life is about exploring your joy. Your 3D life was about completing karma and hoping that by doing so, you might find joy.
You are not who you were, and neither is your new earth playground. Remember the excitement of playing with blocks when you were a toddler? You learned as you explored that joy. Yet, that learning was not expressed by you, it was merely fun to play with blocks.
So it is now. If it’s fun or interesting, do it. When that activity or thought stops being fun, move on to something that enthralls you. Just as you did as an infant or toddler. That is until you were old enough to be forced into 3D fear and karma.
You have no rules other than discovering and interacting with your joy. No prerequisites, no karma, no parents, or teachers telling you no or that you are a bad boy or girl. You are just you. Reborn into joy and negating your fear – especially the fear that you are not an earth angel or if you are not as qualified as others. Stop it!!!! Claim your joy, and all will fall into place without worries, tests, or fear. So be it. Amen.

An Invitation to Live a Life of Joy, from the Council of Radiant Light
Channeled by Ailia MiraExpect Wonderful firstname.lastname@example.org via n.convertkit.com
The day opens before you in new ways. Do you feel the newness of it? Pause for a moment and relax. Consider that this moment is utterly new. This moment is not a transformed, progressed version of what was. What was is complete and this is new now.
When we say this, we mean so much more than is evident at first glance. Everything you are experiencing is unified and whole and that unified whole manifest reality is entirely new. It’s not so much that you’re moving through time and space, it’s more that you’re appearing to move because you, and everything around you “flash on and off” and each moment you’re emanating as this appearance in a new way.
This may seem very abstract or conceptual to you. It’s not, but it is challenging to show you the underlying truth of your experience while you’re so used to translating it in a forward-moving, linear way. So perhaps the most important message we can offer to you, about this is this: choose now as if you were starting everything over, creating it from the beginning, right now. Because in truth, you are.
Every moment you can simply choose as if nothing came before you. You have the power to begin again - on anything. It may help to imagine that you set aside everything that is, right now. Then you consider: since I have the power to begin again, what do i choose? Imagine how you’d like it to be and feel how you’d like to feel, what you’d be living and how it would feel to you. Think of what you want. Catch yourself if you’re trying to say “none of this…” and instead focus what you do want.
Use your attention in this new, creative and entirely free way by focusing on what you choose to create now, and feeling into that and do so with no regard for what-is, or what has been.
This level of freedom is here for you. Available to you. Life is operating at this level of openness and responsiveness. You are seen, heard and tended to. What you treat as real you make real.
You can refresh everything intentionally by choosing to use your attention and your conversation in ways that open up a new flow of unfolding life.
The only way to understand how powerful you are is to experiment with your life, freely. To try out using your attention in dramatically different ways and notice what happens.
There are infinite options for who you can be in this expression and for how you can live. You will feel the options that correspond to you in form and energy - those that you are naturally capable of expressing. Meaning you will be drawn toward the desires that are resonant with you. You can trust what you want and know that by the time you want it, it’s already a potential that you’re got enough affinity with to receive as an idea - it’s already moving into your field of potentials and possibilities, seeking expression in manifest life. You can recognize this, enjoy this and watch with curiosity how Creation brings this about for you.
You can see the different manifestations that come forth from this use of focus. From welcoming desire as an invitation and moving in that direction mentally and as you’re inspired to, in action.
Step into that lifestyle you want to live. In whatever way, it feels obvious and natural to you now to do so. Choose freely who you want to be and how you want to live. All of this is available to you.
Do so, with no concern for the transition. Don’t feel a need to figure out the transition, or think too much about how. Just consider what you want, why it feels like a good thing to you and then have fun and enjoy your day.
Most of you get in the way of change by trying hard to make it happen. Many of you do not realize that the changes you have created have largely come into being in the moments when you stop trying and let go.
When you’re not asking over and over to have it right this minute and to know what to do next to make that happen...now. When you recognize that desire itself is the beginning of a new experience and you see it as the invitation it is, respond with acceptance and begin to incorporate this into your expectations, then you discover how quickly and gracefully life can show up in new ways.
Every moment is entirely new. You cannot make the sunrise show up faster than it is. You cannot know what colors will be present in the morning sky. But you can anticipate that it will be beautiful and look. Noticing what each moment gives.
The creation in your life takes place in how you use your attention, what you converse about - out loud and in your head - and in the ways you, as consciousness, tune your energy. How you feel tells you what your field is doing vibrationally. All the keys to knowing how to live well are in these few simple details.
Why not start this year differently? What if you decide to lay back, give up overcomplicating things and instead, focus on feeling good? What if you consider that perhaps you’ve held back some of your delicious manifest experiences from blooming into all they could be, simply by trying too hard and tuning yourself to unworthiness…as you feel you must make things happen, you demonstrate a belief that it is action and work that results in a change. If you want ease and allowing to be the way you’re life evolves and elevates, then live as if you believe that.
Choose ease. Choose pleasure. Disregard the past and begin again, now. Freely. Since you can. What do you choose, now? How would you most like to feel? Start there. Good ideas and fun things can flow forth from there.
Life is prolific, diverse, generous and ever-expanding. That does not mean that living needs to be complicated. There are a lot of options for how you might live. If it appeals to you, you can keep it simple. Get up each day and remind yourself: everything is new. Then consider how you want to feel and return to that often. Practice shaping your energy by using your attention and conversation to generate the feelings you prefer and let the rest be delivered to you, magnificently.
Ease, and joy, love and happiness, awe and a sense of life getting better and better are very real options. You can live in such a way that you repeatedly create your energy so these feelings are familiar to you and life delivers resonant manifestations. It’s already doing this - giving you reliably, steadily, that which feels like you’ve been mostly feeling.
You can be skillful in living in this more elevated and conscious way. You are free to embrace who you truly are and let life fulfill you. You can understand that sometimes what shows up is simply residual energy on it’s way out and not give it to much mind. Nothing that shows up is ever any indication of who you are. It’s just reflecting back to you where you’ve been, in consciousness, in focus.
It really does not take very much intentional shaping of your energy and mood into those states you prefer before the very beautiful things you enjoy begin to flood your what-is reality and surround you with similar vibrational expressions of this new state you’re creating.
You, and Life Itself are dynamic. Stop asking for it all to be done. Stop asking impossible things of yourself. Be real. Live in the now. Choose freely. Focus on how you feel as the indication of what you’re doing with your focus and choose to harmonize with that. Harmonize and orient to what you care about.
Amidst the magnificent expansive of this ever-increasing manifest reality, you have to choose more deliberately what you focus on, to allow something different to show up. It’s really that simple. Why not start this year differently - by feeling as you want to feel, unconditionally, directly, day after day…moment after moment and letting that change in energy shape what emanates and appears as your experience?
