As a rather old woman, I have made a lot of waves. Now I’m making ripples, but they still count. They’re still effective. I just have to believe in the power of my own ripple.
As do you.
What ripple are you sending out?
Everything you do sends out a ripple. So it’s a good idea to be both aware and selective of our thoughts and actions. I write a lot of stuff. Not all of it goes out. I give myself time to get some distance on each draft of my articles. That’s when some ideas, even if fully developed, never get shared. I look at them as part of the overall energy I’ve created and some of them are not a good addition to the ripple I want to send out.
When I idea calls to you – answer
When I got the idea for the 7-7 Vibrational Healing Drumming Day I wanted to share that and I hoped it would be passed along. So I posted it in the four online classes I was in and reached out and added friends from those groups to my Facebook page. I wanted that idea to make a splash, not just a ripple. But however it turns out, a steady and far-reaching ripple will be good too.
Everything you do sends out a wave
A moment of grouchiness – sends out a ripple. A moment of carelessness – sends out a ripple A moment of kindness – sends out a ripple. Laugher sends out a series of ripples.
What kind of ripples are you sending out and how can you raise the number of positive ripples you’re launching?
Be aware of the splash you make
When you begin to think of everything you do as sending out a ripple, having an effect on others, it can be a sobering thought. Is this the kind of energy I want to send out into the world? Be aware of your own vibration.
How can you change your response so that it will impact the ripple coming at you? Do you absorb the ripple? Do you reject the ripple? Can you change the energy of the ripple?
All change happens within you. It begins with being aware that everything you do creates a ripple that affects someone somewhere in the world.
Create your ripples with concessions awareness
I put a blessing on every post I send out. It’s a conscious blessing that’ll reach those it’s meant to reach, touch their hearts and change them. That’s a lot for one ripple to accomplish.
Perhaps, before beginning a task, identify the kind of ripple you want it to send out. Then see how you can make it kinder, more supportive, more impactful.
Monitor your thoughts so the negative responses and reactions never get sent out as a ripple. Dissolve them. Melt them. Wash the negative away so that the ripple you offer is supportive and full of love.
You’ve seen the destruction that high waves can make. They reshape and flatten and corrode. We’re just talking ripples here, gentle pebbles dropped in a still pool that sends out a gentle wave that eventually reaches the outermost edges. The outmost edges. Your ripple can go on for a long, long time.
Your ripple affects the ripple of others
Just about the time I being to feel ineffective, I remember that my ripple will change someone who will then, in turn, change someone else. One ripple goes on, and on and on.
That makes me want to be even more careful of what ripples I send out. I am affecting the lives of people I don’t even know and they will be changed by my ripple. I want to make certain the ripples I send out are supportive and loving and positive and meaningful.
We have to trust our ripple. We have to trust that what we are passionate about is our calling, our gift, our place of illumined service.
Trust your ripple. Understand what it is, how you affect others and do the best job of rippling you know how to do.

Deeper Song Process
- Give thought to the impact you have on the world. How far-reaching is it? How effective?
- Are you sending out the ripples you want that are gently effective or are you creating your own tsunami? Give some thought to how you would like to adjust that.
- Choose an action you can take that’ll allow you to see its ripple effect. Send it out and notice what happens.
- Create a ripple that you simply must make and that you know you will not see where it goes and who it will affect. Check the energy behind your ripple, see that it is positive and well-intentioned. Then send it out. You may or may not know who and how it affects others.
- Monitor your ripples. Send them with thoughtful awareness.
