A Terrible Movie … and a Light at the End of the Tunnel

I had a terrible experience the other day that I go back and forth about sharing it with you. I saw a horrible movie. Horrible. I knew better when I walked in, but a friend asked me to see it with him, so I did.

The movie was extremely depressing, and I can’t pull myself out of it. I can’t stand watching movies about the atrocities that humankind does to humankind and this movie has a total political spin on it. OMG. Aren’t you getting sick of all the bickering between the political parties? Fake News. Propaganda. What’s the truth anymore?

Over the last few days I’ve been praying for help to release this negativity and depression because that’s what I came away with. This feeling of hopelessness and despair. Then today I woke up mad at Hollywood. Why do they keep making these movies? Why is everything violence, death, hate? How did we get here?

So once again, I’m here to remind you that there is goodness in the world. That there is light at the end of the tunnel – which is an interesting expression if you think about it, because the light at the end of the tunnel is usually the other side. (a wink and a smile.)

flowermandala_yellowThe only good that came out of that movie for me is to double down on being a positive light in the world. If you are a sensitive person like myself, please do not see the movie Death of a Nation. It literally breaks your heart.

It’s times like these that make it hard to find the Christ within everyone, but it is something to strive for and I for one needed that reminder today. We didn’t come to Earth to have it easy. We came here to grow, and that’s hopefully what we’re doing. We’re either stuck or growing. As a good friend of mine has said to me numerous times, thank the challenges for giving us the opportunity to grow.

    Thanks Echo!
    I would like to tell you how much you changed my life for better and I’ve never forgotten – I had a few readings with you spanning 25 years. Your readings carried me through what’s been a sometimes very arduous journey. Thank you for giving all of us out here HOPE. It has made all the difference.

    I remember your first message about how everyone will be happy about how this all ends but I hate seeing the USA being destroyed, children abused, families shattered, on and on!!! I want to ask for some positive news but hate to put you on the spot! I wonder if this is the end of the world, I wonder if there is a God, I want to know what I can do to help or even if I can help. So as much as I hate that you saw that movie, I’m glad that you talk to us, that you give us hope and remind us what to believe in and what we can do. More than anything we need heroes to help lead us through the evil, to give us hope, to leave this earth to our children, grandchildren in a better state than it is in now. Thank you for the worlds of wisdom that give me hope, may you see lots of sunshine and the movie be replaced with thought of love and kindness. Hugs!

      Thank you Amy. Just reading this today, 12/30/2018. What a nice message you sent me and I’m just seeing it today. Yes there is a God and no, this is not the end of the world. Have you read my book Echoes of the Soul? Reading that will give you lots of answers to the many questions we all have at this time. I agree, we all need heroes and they sure seem few and far between don’t they? We’ll get through all of this insanity. It’s all here to help us grow into our potential as children of God. Thank you for your very nice message.
      Happy New Year.

    I’m responding to your terrible movie experience and comments, Echo – in the early 1990s I volunteered as a Counselor with the Mpls Sexual Violence Center – at that time I realized so much of our TV dramas and movies were stalking, raping and killing women. At that time, I decided not to watch violence, not to pay for violent movies, not to let it into my life. I must say, my life is much more beautiful without it. And I’m really glad I’m not supporting the production of such movies. I do agree with Deepak Chopra “What you pay attention to grows. If your attention is attracted to negative situations and emotions, then they will grow in your awareness.” I enjoyed your recent Walking with Death presentation; I hope you’ll be walking with us here on this side for years to come.

    Echo, thanks for sharing! If you felt that way watching the movie for a couple hours, then I’m curious about the energetic effects on the cast and the crew who worked for months on it.

    Last week I hit on something as I briefly checked what’s going on in the news (I rarely look at it, but I’m trying to find a balance so I don’t feel like I have me head in the sand!). It was about the strategies of both parties with elections coming up and what’s best for each party. My thought was ‘what about what’s best for the whole country?’. All their squabbling feels so yucky and pointless, like little kids fighting over a toy. It left me feeling a bit like you did after the movie! The funny (and cool part) is that I keep focusing on the light within me and I continue to meet great, friendly people and have amazing interactions! Now that should be news and/or a movie!

    Well ? Eco , choose better movie friends. And what are you doing with some one who’s taste is so different. I have walked out of movies and got my money back, without sitting thru it all. Sounds a little, like self abuse for the sake of politeness.

    • Echo Bodine on December 30, 2018 at 2:23 am

      Well Bill, let me just say it will never happen again. Lesson learned. And yes, very polite.

    Thanks for the heads up, Echo! Sounds exactly like the kind of movie I don’t want or need to see. I will be boycotting it. Sorry it hit you so hard. 🙁 Sending you love and light!

      Thank you Brenda,
