Random Acts of Kindness.
Table of Contents
Random Acts of Kindness Week comes around annualland February 17th is Random Acts of Kindness Day. It is a day to celebrate and encourage random acts of kindness. But imagine how much kinder the world would be if we did this every day. If we did it every day as a matter of course. More as a part of who we are, rather than something we do sometimes.
But first, let’s consider giving a little kindness as a random act to a random stranger.
Why you ask?
Well, that little act of kindness whether it’s a smile, or a helping hand given in some way, may just be the act of kindness that opens their heart. Your words spoken in kindness, may bring them understanding in some way. A random act of kindness could even save someone’s life. Your little act of kindness can help another person in so many ways; ways you can’t even begin to comprehend. None of us know what is really going on in someone else’s life. We are taught to put a brave face on life, and yet behind so many faces can be a state of complete despair.
If you’re going to do a random act, do it unconditionally and without any expectation of return. You will never know how it was received and the truth is you don’t need to know. However, the universe will know all unconditional acts of kindness, repaying them 10-fold over and over again.
It’s the Law of Attraction at work: What we give out, we get back—so that little act of kindness, given freely, will turn into healing for a complete stranger. Furthermore, it will manifest back into your life as healing.
What about those close to us?
So, if we can do this for a stranger, why not do something kind and unexpected for those close to us as well? And better yet, let’s not just do this now, but continue to seek out opportunities to add a little delight and surprise into our loved one’s lives.
Consider this, just smiling at someone and wishing them a good day, could well have a profound impact. We help ourselves by helping others, and undoubtedly, the smile on their face along with yours will make it all worthwhile.
How often do we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or even those smallest acts of caring? Yet, all of these have the potential to turn a life around.
It’s amazing how sometimes it’s the smallest act of kindness that has the biggest impact. Merely saying please or thank you can turn things around, and make life seem that much better.
Try gifting crystals.
Gifting crystals is an ideal way to share kindness in a positive and very effective way. Every week at our market stall we get the opportunity to share in at least one story or act of kindness. More often than not we help out in several instances of reaching out in kindness and gratitude. We are sure this is happening online as well, but we are not present to observe it.
It comes about because a customer is looking for a particular crystal to help someone they know with a particular problem. They check with us that this crystal is the best choice because it is a gift for this special person. It’s not just a gift of a crystal, it’s a gift of healing, of love, and appreciation for the recipient.
Very few other gifts can fulfil this so magnificently.
How about a little kindness for ourselves?
Next, let’s also consider giving a little kindness to ourselves.
Many of us recognise the world is crying out for kindness! Perhaps it’s because of this that we can so easily be persuaded to reach out to another. Naturally, this is to be commended and encouraged. And yet so many of us find this a most difficult task if the recipient is ourselves.
So many find it relatively easy to be kind to others while remaining so tough on themselves. If you’re one, why not let yourself off the hook and do unto yourself as you would do unto others?
Moreover, Random Acts of Kindness Day reminds us just how important kindness is. Furthermore, it encourages us to get out there and be the light we want to see in the world.
Why not carry a kindness crystal with you all the time to help you stay in the energy of kindness? The more kindness is a part of you; the more you’re able to give it away! Plus, it will help you look out for opportunities to reach out in kindness to others. In our article ‘Kindness Crystals – Crystals to Spread Love and Kindness‘ we list eight crystals that encourage kindness as well as provide support for your efforts.
