As we all sit separated from each other, it seems the perfect time to be with ourselves and our loved ones. So many need a rest from the rat wheel race and here we are forced to stop. I think this is a very good thing for most of us. We are desperately in need of rest. Perhaps that is why so many have challenged immune systems. We are rushing far too much. It can be the perfect time to catch up on things. Perhaps read a book, spring clean or chat with those you haven't had time for, even play some board games. It can be a great time to take a nap, bath, cook something extended, bake, be with yourself. It is like a snow storm where we just can't go anywhere.
Perhaps it is causing many strife, fear, panic and worry. This may be a state you already where in and now it can seem gigantic. For once you can just notice how current that state is. You don't have to let it run you. You can notice, feel and pray or watch as it moves. We have made it this far and we will continue. Whatever your worry, things do work out somehow always. I have lived on the edge of great wonder or going down for many years so I know the feeling.
Despite being on the edge of breakdown or breakthrough, I continued to enjoy what life offered in ways of small things. What happened was "all worked out". I got in some tight situations yet as if I had an angel, something always or someone swooped in and supported me through whatever crisis I had. I used to feel bad or less needing support. However, I learned so much about how me needing help, gave others opportunities to share and support. Many had never felt the power or joy of giving. I "needing" was a gift to them to learn what they had to offer and the power of offering it The human heart grows when we help.
It is not quite how our world sees things. Trained that if we need support, need rest, need to break out we are in some lesser state. It simply is not true. I helped so many in my life and when I was in need others just seemed to show up like magic. I think in this time we may find more magic than at others. Many will support and help that can. Many will need to receive help. It is how it all works. We feel better when we help and others who need it get support.
During this down time, consider to care and support others around you. I know we are not to interact but do be sure those around you who many need, know you are there. Be the kind offering. If you need, ask for support. We are a great humanity and these kinds of epidemics offer us opportunity to show our kind, warm selves.
As a homeopath and connected to many healers, I am not so concerned of contacting anything. If I do, this is a cold, flu virus and most of us will only see simple symptoms of flu. Many seem to of had it, didn't consider to get tested and recovered. It is important to be wise and cautious. Yet we can still be available to help others with soup, conversation, sharing items that may be out of stock, however it calls.
With this down time there is alot of good things you can do. I am personally, going through spring cleaning as I am to move in the next few weeks. I am enjoying the peace of not having to do or go at a rash pace. I am resting, studying, investigating and enjoying myself. I have watched movies, taken naps and made soup. It is a good time to learn what nourishes you to feel calm and relaxed.
We are all in this together. For me, it is a symptom of what I teach, not enough pleasure and play. So do these things that fill you with oxytocin. Helping others also does this. It is the elixir par excellent and it appears as there is not much else to be done. Slow down, sink into yourself, feel nourished and find the smile of getting off the wheel.
Health, healing and prosperity to you all!
