hearts in action

heart in stone

the devastation of the floods has really hit Queensland. unexpectedly. yesterday flash floods went through Toowoomba...some of our family + friends were right in the thick of the flood waters.thankfully they are all present and accounted for......thankfully the Universe was watching over them.

we've already seen so much of the flood waters on tv. there is so much water in so many places its hard not to be watching. it does get to a point where we switch off, literally, to look after our own spirit or stitch off in our heads and go on with life as usual.

Today I'm asking you to put your hearts into action. yes stitch off the news if its disturbing + overwhelming but don't switch off your heart. Truly Queensland + its people need a lot of love.Many, many towns have been effected and if we can send a little love, physically, emotionally, spiritually it can make a difference.

So what action am I asking you to take?

Every time you hear about the flooding in Queensland instead of going into pity, fear, sadness or whatever it brings up for you, send some love from your heart. See it energetically reaching the Sunshine state and spreading to all those who need it. Like attracts like and the power of love can do amazing things.

Here's what else you can do.I'm giving away this painting. its fresh out of the studio, 8" x 8". you can make it yours by..

  1. make a donation here. the smallest amount can make the biggest difference. when we all work together greatness happens. ($5 - $10 can make a difference! there are a few payment options)
  2. once you've made a donation come back here and leave a comment. make sure I can contact you and please only leave a comment if you've made a donation. its good karma.
  3. I'm giving this painting to one of you who leaves a comment.the painting is titled "A moment of Joy". truly your actions could bring many moments of joy.....

we can do something to be part of this bigger healing for Queensland... heart-filled action can make a difference.

Hi Nic,
Just made my donation.
My heart has been heavy seeing & reading all the tragic news. Are you safe where you live?
Hugs Lucy

Heartfelt thanks Lucy for your donation! yes we are safe + so are our family and friends in Toowoomba.we are seeing other effects of the floods + cut roads with no transport coming into Hervey Bay.Fresh fruit + vegys (even frozen)are in very short supply with bread + milk being 'rationed' at the supermarket. 2litres per purchase, 2 bags of bread.its all a little challenging to comprehend how widespread the ongoing effects are.

I was wondering how to donating and did not know how, thanks to you I was able to do it easily. Thanks for your effort in helping our fellow Australians. It has made me very sad to watch the devistation for these people. When discussing with my partner about donating he reminded me that we are blessed and that some people had lost everything. Thanks again.

My donation has been made. Wish I could do more. My thoughts and prayers are with all those affected

Anna Bartlett said...

Hi Nic, we donated through Woolies so count me in! Anna

Wonderful post, Nic. We made our donation last weekend not even imagining how much worse this flood was going to become. It's easy to feel (as I have) that our contributions are just a drop in the ocean, but every drop creates ripples, and this post is a great example of that.

Nic Hohn said...

Girls, thanks so much for giving from your hearts....

Wini said...

Thank you Nic. You are very caring. I feel for those affected by the disaster & its hard to imagine the scale. I have made my donation :) Wini xo

Hi Nic, have donated to a few of the collections over the past weeks, but again more today as this flooding is so horrendous.

We lost our car and Peter had a narrow escape clinging to a road side sign in Withcott as the water washed the car away as he drove home from work. We are grateful that he is still with us.

Hi Nic,

Glad to hear you and your family are ok. Terrible news happening everywhere. Yes I am slow on the blogging side but not on the donations, done my bit and now will be doing more.

You have a good heart and a wonderful soul, my prayers are with you.
