Karma Yoga: Helping Haiti Through Meditation

Updated on April 2, 2015

Meditating to Heal Haiti

The power of meditation and intention are remarkable, and they can have a very real affect on helping out in the healing of Haiti – think of it as karma yoga.

The heartbreaking stories of the earthquake and suffering in Haiti, as well as the heartwarming stories of the massive response of compassion and aid, have the focus of the world. It’s such an interesting balance of huge tragedy and soaring humanitarianism.

You may have sent money to an organization participating in the relief efforts there. That’s great; the financial need is definitely there. Fundraising is happening en masse – personally I’m teaching a benefit yoga class and will donate the proceeds. You may have similar ideas.

Yet you might not be in a financial situation to donate much, or maybe you feel like you want to do more than simply sending money.

This is where meditation can come in.

Meditation, prayer, and blessings on individual and group levels have been proven to be enormously effective. Sending positive energy and intention literally sends the vibrations of your thoughts out. These vibrations, or waves of resonance, actually affect reality, and can do quite a lot to help.

Energy follows your focus. If you meditate on healing light, peace, health, and harmony, those things are created and strengthened. Using your intention you amplify the feelings and states of balance that are desperately needed in Haiti and the rest of the world right now.

You could even get out a map, locate Haiti, and have that visual there to focus on when you do your healing meditation practice.

One of the best things about contributing your efforts with meditation and intention is that you can do this again and again; it’s such a generous thing to pray for the healing of Haiti and illuminate the hearts of all the people who are involved in this with peace and love.

And this is something you can do, no matter what your monetary situation happens to be.

Take a few minutes, right now, to make a difference. You’ll feel the rewards in yourself as you center in, get bright, breathe, and shine peace and harmony into every part of yourself and out into Haiti and the world.

Tell Your Friends!

Share this hub and raise awareness of this powerful way to contribute to Haiti.

Let our collective intention send such light and healing to Haiti and beyond that hearts all over the world feel the change!

      Exactly, Maita. Or people can donate money, AND intention. There are so many ways to contribute - it doesn't all have to be centered around money (though monetary contributions are still very important). Blessings to you!
