“Gossip,” as defined by Wikipedia, is idle talk or rumor, especially about the personal or private affairs of others. It derives from the bedroom at the time of childbirth when the pregnant female’s relatives and neighbors (an all female event) would gather and chatter about others outside the birthing room. The term is often used to refer to the spreading of dirt and excited details of scandals. On the flip side, gossip can also be used to contribute to social bonding. With the technology of the computer and internet, gossip can spread in an instant.

So what kind of messages about others do we want to spread like wildfire in our world today? Aw come on, Coach Betty, it is so much fun to talk about other people and get all the juicy details of their struggles! Right? I say wrong, because I am a part of creating a new positive consciousness and the drama of negative gossip becomes an obstacle to the needed collaboration to solve our crisis level of problems today. If we are going to live, not just talk about, a new vision of a healthy and balanced planet for people on the planet, then we must STOP the addiction to “needing to know” the inner scum of other people’s life. We are human, after all, and not a single one of us can claim perfection to my knowledge. So would you like your dirty laundry hanging in the air?

Women created the word for gossip, and now I want to invite and encourage women to foster the good gossip that is an actual path to inner beauty. I love playing with the positive sides of what words truly mean. How can we turn “gossip” into that social bonding experience that creates good juice on the planet and spreads near and far with a click?

For starters:

Taken from an old saying my mother drummed into my head “If you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all.”

When you share anything at all about another, evaluate where the information comes from. Does it come from your own personal experience, another person who may or may not have gotten the facts straight, or from a media source. Remember, it is not illegal to present false news.

When you have spoken about someone who is not present and accounted for, how does it make you feel inside? Do you feel relaxed, calm and at peace or do you feel tense, tight and uneasy?

Inner beauty is felt as an inner peace, and your body knows it if you tune in. Are you are spreading the good word, or contributing to more chaos and havoc among us? Spread the good word, and let’s take this opportunity to transform the world into what is possible!
