Inspiring Message: They HUB Among Us
This is a ripple effect of the hub called Angels Among Us by Ripplemaker. The day I read the hub I was inspired to open a thread in the Hubber’s Hangout forum called Angels Among Us in Hubpages where I suggested another approach of handling the “stop hate on Hubpages” appeal of one of our members.
Realizing that not all members visit the forum I thought it best to make a hub about it and at the same time put my suggestions into action. A thought is good but actions create more ripples.
We all know how important it is to honor or pay tribute to people who deserve it. Unfortunately, we sometimes tend to put it off and miss the chance to do so. I truly believe that when we show appreciation we are giving the recipient an opportunity to experience the joy of being recognized as someone valuable in this world. This not only helps them feel good about themselves but more importantly it could help heal wounds left behind by past incidents. It is with hope that this “movement” be received with open hearts.
Here are the guidelines:
- Choose any member of Hubpages whom you consider an angel. There is no limit to the number of angels you choose. You can use the hubber as your jump off point to honor others in your family or friends who are non-members. You can even include a race or a group of people doing a special project somewhere or an organization etc..
- Next is to choose a manner in which you would like to honor this/these angels. You can do so in the most creative of manners or the simplest of manners –the possibilities are endless.
- Publish the hub featuring your respective artwork or a poem or song or write up especially created for your angel(s).
- Announce the hub you just published in the forum and put a link there so that way we can all read and appreciate this hubber angel(s) you have chosen to honor.
- There is no deadline to this project of sorts. This can go on forever.
- You may write as many hubs as you want about any angel you encounter around this community and beyond
The idea is to allow room for us to know each other deeper, share each others joy, appreciate each others being and celebrate it with others, thereby providing venue for us to function in a more grateful and loving state. This helps create a more positive environment and could establish a culture of “seeing” each other through God’s eyes attracting the abundance of love to overflow in this community.
Allow me the honor of formally opening project Hub Angels.
Except for the first honoree, I have arranged my 1st batch of 20 angels alphabetically. There are more on my list and I know I will be meeting more in the future. I have chosen to speak directly to the Hubbers for it allows a more personal touch and shows readers the kind of effect these people have had on me.
Allow me first to honor Ripplemaker for her great hub which served as the jump off point to this whole concept. Yesterday I edited a slide show which I uploaded on YouTube. It features a chant sang by ripplemaker herself. You see in healing sessions we do she is sometimes led to do some chanting of sorts. We decided to purposely record her chants for we know it carries with it healing energy. We intended to send it to those we were praying for in hubpages. She did the recording while she was visualizing these hubbers and others whom she believed needed healing in various areas. What Ripplemaker did not know is that I edited a 5 minute version of the chant, did some mixing and put in some refreshing pictures to go along with the audio material with a personal intention of using it to honor her in this hub.
The readers are encouraged to press play and press pause right away to first allow the material to load completely before pressing play again. This way the chant is heard in a more fluid manner. For binuaral beats to take effect it is recommended that headphones be used.
Now, sis Michelle I know you cringe at the thought of having the spotlights on you. However I do believe the time has come for you to share more of yourself so that others may be blessed. This is my way of honoring your gift of healing the heart, body, mind and spirit.
Healing Love Chant by Ripplemaker
I now move on to the other angels I have met in this community. At the end of the list is a special gift for all of the angels mentioned in this hub.
Amy Jane, you were the first one to dare and trust us even if you hardly knew us then. It was your willingness to accept our love that motivated me to write How Hubpages Becomes a Healing Ground. Thank you for allowing me to see the endless healing that can take place in any given environment. I know more good things are coming your way for angels abound when much healing is taking place. You are an angel of trust.
ChristineKV, Salamat usab (thank you too) for commenting in my Beatitude hub for if not for that I would not have been led to your personal testimony on conversion which touched me deeply. I could relate to the confusing states you went through and I am blessed with how you have come to be. You are an angel in blue jeans.
Compu-Smart, your openness and honesty was a welcome surprise considering the depth of that which you shared. Thank you for trusting us enough to do what we could to assist you in your journey. I think you will like the video found above for it features that which we intend to send you. Angels are known to be tender and supportive and you my friend have these qualities for they are evident in your comments and gestures in this community.
Constant Walker, thank you for constantly traveling to my hubs and then leave behind valuable insights and suggestions to help keep my journey a more exciting one. You never fail to give me a map or clue to hidden treasures of wisdom that can be found if I take on a more challenging trail. So what do I have in common with Indiana Jones? We both have very lively adventurous angels leading the way and covering our backs. Thank you for being that kind of angel to me.
DJFunktual, I am as surprised as you are to find you on this list! LOL Kidding aside let me explain. Reading through your hubs showed me more than just the “cool dude” look. I noticed that most of your hubs were all geared toward keeping people in this community in an upbeat mood. I saw a friendly, concerned guy who sincerely wants to help people look at the bright side of life. You take the time to compose or remix music for Hubbers, list 100 funny movies that we can enjoy and even make a CRUSH List which, believe me, boosts a woman’s self worth. For the zest of life you put in this community, you are hereby dubbed the Funky Angel.
Dottie1, you blew the angel’s trumpet on me when you said “it is important to see through the eyes of God for if we could see ourselves this way there would be no more need for low self esteem.” That woke me up and found another tool for empowerment which I used immediately. Behold what it has done to Ripplemaker! Through her hub she openly shared how she believes God sees her, a task difficult to make for one who fears being too visible. The hub has touched many deeply which inspired me to create this very project you are now enjoying. Who knows where it’s going to lead next! This seems to be a classic example of how the abundance of love can flow swiftly and smoothly. Thank you, Dottie for being such a wise angel.
G-Ma Johnson, you are one of the most lovable angels around for you unselfishly give all the hugs and kisses you can give to those who come your way. As you give so too will you receive as it is seen in your latest Hub. Many care for you here G-ma and it brings us joy to be there for you too and assist you in whatever way we can. Know that there are more angels in this world that you can ever imagine and are present to protect us all. Here’s a great big tight hug to an affectionate angel.
IntheDoghouse, your Pioneers hub touched the core of my being. You put events in a different perspective prodding me to be more appreciative of the endeavors done by those surrounding my life. It also served as an opportunity to encourage myself to go on introducing positive reinforcements in my training modules no matter how radical they may sound. Doing things differently can create a stir and I needed just the right push to go on with my plans. Thank you for that needed push, Pioneering Angel.
Jezzbb, I could never imagine angels to tinker with computer hardware and software until you showed me the techniques of using whatever we had to make the net a place to spread love. Thank you for putting into reality the dreams that Ripplemaker and I have had for our site, books and audio materials. We could never have started on these things if it weren’t for your expertise and enthusiasm to help. Thank you, big brother angel.
Julie A. Johnson, you are proving time and again that learning is a never ending journey and what rich resources we have when we take time to appreciate the ordinary things that surround us. Thank you for nourishing us with valuable life lessons, Teacher Angel.
Kenny Wordsmith, your words emanate profound energies recognized by my spirit bringing me to a meditative state. Peace and gentleness surround me while reading your hubs and comments. You are a mysterious angel who calms my being and I am grateful for your presence in this community.
MarisueWrites, your passion to protect those under your care may be beyond the understanding of many but rest assured that the recipients of your love benefit from that. I am quite familiar with the thinking process of abused individuals and I know your presence in their lives mean a great deal. Allow therefore your gentleness to flow freely as you share the joy of loving with the inner knowing that as you help heal others there is much healing taking place in your life as well. Thank you, guardian angel.
Patience Virtue, your enthusiasm to understand God allows me to reflect on His teachings beyond various interpretations. I recognize this spirit that longs to have a deep relationship with the All Loving Being. You reflect that of an angel seeking constantly to be in His presence in everything you do and believe me He smiles with delight with all the things you do for He can never deny those who seek Him in earnest. Go forth and be blessed for you are blessing those you encounter.
Rmr, your view of home revealed the angel in you, Robert. It was such a delight to discover that the shortest hub name actually has a name that means “bright fame”. I believe calling you Robert instead will attract more brightness and fame into your life for indeed there is power in words. You remind me about eagles for they too have this abiity to sleep amidst a storm and trust the wind to keep them in flight. I am blessed with this strength. Thank you eagle-winged angel.
Robjundt , choosing an avatar showing off your boys has a special appeal to it. I love it when parents take pride in their children. Going through your profile made me smile and reading your hubs gave me an appetite not just for food but more so on food for the soul. Family life seems to be the underlying theme for your choice of topics and I thank you for that, family-oriented angel.
Sally’s Trove, it was great to find an angel who understood the challenge of growing up in “strict” schools. It somehow gave me a reassurance that I was not alone and that it wasn’t as bad as I thought it was because look how far we’ve come. Thank you for being an angel of character.
SweetiePie , your request on Beatitudes prompted me to deal with a topic in a different way. During the martial law era in the Philippines I used to write street plays and highlighted the Beatitudes as an example of how the Spanish colonizers manipulated God’s words to oppress a people. Without being conscious about it I attached negative feelings toward the beatitudes. When your request came the words jumped out of the pages so to speak and I knew I just had to write about it. Thank you for being the messenger angel. Writing the hub has broken the chains of negativity and assured me all is well in my soul.
Trish1048, you exude compassion and soft heartedness paving the way for my tender side to embrace you with warmth and assurance. My nurturing side comes out and I am thankful. Not too many people can do that but an angel sure can and has done so in several occasions. Thank you my compassionate angel.
VioletSun, your Inspiring Movie Flashes Hub came just at the right time. The Truth flash became an affirmation of the new ways I am approaching life. There was an instant and strong connection established. I honor both you and Phil for the amazing poetry you do together for they are like the breath of angels.
The song you are about to hear is an original composition called "Why Jesus?" which expressed my desire to better understand God's nature. Sis Michelle and I made the lyrics, recorded it way back and shared it with friends in community. Now, I share it here as a form of honoring the angels God had sent me.
To help focus on the song I only placed one Photoshop picture but then again who knows…angels may just appear along the way (hint). Again, thank you for all the angelic ways you have touched my life. May the abundance of love, joy and peace reign in your lives!
A Song for the Angels
Why Jesus? Lyrics
why cant they see me? why cant they love me
why can't they take me for who i really am and what I want to be
then I hear you call on me with tender eyes seeing me
open arms receiving me while hanging on the cross of tender
Jesus (You are my King)
Jesus (You are my Savior and friend)
Now I know the pain you're going through (oh it must hurt You so)
When people you love do not believe in you (they just don't know)
Now I know the ache you have inside (take comfort sweet Jesus)
When the people you love remain blind
Why can't they see you, Why can't they love you,
Why can't they take you, Jesus For who you really are
and the boundless love you give us
Bridge on repeat
Hush now Jesus for all is not in vain
Many have heard and come to give you their loving embrace
Cheers to the Hubbers who have given tribute to their respective angels. Do check their hubs and be inspired. Love lots:)
