Kindness Revolution Day 17: Clearing the Gulf Oil Spill

Today’s gift is a meditation for clearing the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.† This may seem outlandish to some people, but as Dr. Joe Vitale, one of the participants in The Secret video, indicates:† there are 23 studies demonstrating that when people meditate on inner peace and a common goal, the results are more likely to happen. So, why not focus on, pray for, or send healing energy toward clean, clear waters in the Gulf of Mexico?

The idea comes from Andrew H., one of the many people who have posted great gift ideas, inspirational words, and support for the Kindness Revolution.†† He informed me of a meditation created by Dr. Vitale and his friend Pat O’Bryan that helps create inner peace while also focusing on the clearing of the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.

Whether you believe in meditating on a common goal, praying for a positive outcome, distant energy healing, or some other method of positive change like the one I shared on Day 7: Advice from an African Medicine Woman, I encourage you to join me today, or any day that works for you, in focusing our efforts on envisioning a planet with clean ocean waters, clean air, and clean soil.† Andrew H. shared the link for Dr. Vitale and Pat O’Bryan’s beautiful meditation designed to focus our attention on inner peace and clean waters in the Gulf.† It’s a free download.

I believe that 'sending' goodwill - individually or en masse - has a real transformative power.

Joe Vitale's Clearing the Gulf meditation is working! The NYTimes headline reads: "Gulf oil slick appears to vanish quickly" and the article starts: "The oil slick in the Gulf of Mexico appears to be dissolving far more rapidly than anyone expected," see it at
Thank you Joe! I have been playing this audio in my car continuously to and from work for almost a month.
