Thank you for dropping in.
I am Helena, I work as a free-lance journalist, documentary researcher, independent film-maker. I am also a mother of two, gardener, environmental activist, (frustrated) artist, and soul seeker. The information gathered as an investigative journalist and documentary researcher has in stages plunged me into states of horror and fear in me about the state of the planet. Having been through that, I have come to realize that hope is something we can create, if we choose to.
Heaven and hell are states of mind. We create them everyday in every moment. In each moment we can choose whether to fall down the rabit hole of fear or slip into the bliss of love. There is so much that needs to change about the unsustainable way that humans are using and abusing our environmental resources. There is no doubt about that, but I believe that we can change the world if each of us as individuals wake up and start to think global and act local with an intention to heal the earth.
Healing the earth sounds like an enormously impossible task, but it is simple when we begin by starting with ourselves. By becoming more conscious in our every day choices, and finding simple things we can do to help heal the earth around us in our immediate environment, in our everyday lives. By doing them we create ripples in our pond which can move on out to help the bigger picture. The intention of this blog “Earthnotes for hope” is to share examples of ways to do this, and positive stories of people and organizations who are doing it in whatever way they can. In this way, I hope that this blog will become a resource by connecting people and initiatives working for a common cause… and by doing this, connecting the dots on the road map to hope and change.
