Whether a virus is gaining momentum, the financial world is wobbling, the daily actions we engage in threatened are by big restrictions, the common theme in 2020 is CHANGE…. Changing of consciousness, elevating our awareness, raising our essential self to a new level, recalling our responsibility to life, planet, each other, and ultimately self.
What is happening now is rapid change, life a fever…. Furious in its ability to debilitate, burning up what is no longer required, making us take time to reset, and look at how our lives have been consumed by the external desires for more and more, been under the influence of so many others ideals and rules, and showing us that taking care of our own self, those we love and our sanctuaries, ( homes) need to be prioritised.
Louise Hays wrote many years ago..the metaphysical belief around ‘influenza” is who or what is influencing you? Fear influences us to the depths of our instinctive nature. It is easy to fall into, and that worry has been shown through science, to affect our immune systems, deplete them, and we can be susceptible to the very thoughts creating those environments for viruses to flourish. These are the times we are called to show up with all that we believe, have recalled, know and have embodied, the times to put our expansive skillsets to use
Fear has the ability to paralyse us, it is infectious, removes sensibility and puts us in a raging whirlpool without direction, unable to make decisions or take clear actions. Fear is fuelling the very depths of what we have hidden in self and how the collective has agreed to allow those secrets in exchange for following the ‘expected behaviours “ of our immediate world.
Change is upon us, we either fall apart and become a statistic, or we observe, stay safe and work on the inner world to create more connection, community, support, compassion and positivity to rise above the hysteria. It is up to each of us to own our sovereign right to choose how we want to feel about the global events. , be swallowed by them or stand aside with a knowing that this too shall pass.
Yes stay safe, but from the place of inner work, self-care, keeping your thoughts and hearts in a higher calibration of energy.
Yes , things are fast right now, but we need this to bring about massive new ways. We can see this ‘virus” as a great leveller…no one and nothing is exempt from it or its effects. There will be dramatic and drastic situations, and we are all a part of it.
As this new world, or new energy is anchoring, we are participating in the creative process of what is next.
YES each of us is adding to the collective force, consciousness which is taking us towards our new selves, world, earth and operating systems. Make sure that you are operating from the place of love, gratitude, awareness and aligning with the highest aspects of self . What we are feeling right now radiates into the world
If we are in fear, we close down. If we are in gratitude or love, we radiate out. The higher the vibe we engage in, the better our immune systems.
So how do we caretake ourselves, others and stay safe
