When fear and doubt overwhelm you, look within. When you are stressed by all the news reports, look within. If you are isolated and alone, look within. If you just need some rest, look within.
My friend Lisa, of Southern Patches, wrote a beautifully titled post, “The Contents of My Heart and Soul” post a perfect reminder of where we should put our focus. Lisa’s post shares what most of us are feeling. The ever-present media, and all the warnings, have us caught up in a frenzied pace of rushing to get to something that we don’t even know what we need. We worry about jobs, food, toilet paper and meds. We worry about people in places we’ve never been. But mostly, we worry about our families and friends, and what changes may come in our lives.
Events like this pandemic shake the very core of our existence. Our way of life, and all that we have known is facing great change. That which lives in our soul, our faith, is being challenged to rise up and guide us through. It is there where we must begin.
Look within before you look without. Use this time of isolation to search the contents of your heart and soul (thank you, Lisa). When we take the time and space to go within, we find our connection to the Universe. That is where peace and purpose can be found. Instead of fear, you will find action steps that will protect you and your loved ones. You will be guided to make beneficial changes in your life that, even if they seem scary and disruptive, are ultimately for your Highest Good.
Spirit does not want the annihilation of the planet. Spirit does not want us to be alone and isolated. Trust that Spirit is guiding us towards a more meaningful and purposeful life. Our purpose here is to grow, to love and be loved, and to experience many things to help Spirit grow. Global destruction does not serve Spirit. Perhaps there are things, activities, and even people, that need to end. I don’t believe that is malice on Spirit’s part, only a soul agreement that what ends has served a purpose to teach or guide where we are to focus next. I believe that part of the purpose for this pandemic is to teach us that social isolation is more likely to be our undoing than this virus. That losing our connectedness is far more damaging.
I know that we are supposed to maintain a personal perimeter to avoid spreading this virus. No one wants to be ill in any variation. Use good judgement, as well as your inner truth, as to what level you follow this guidance. If you feel safe giving someone a hug, then that is your guidance. We exist in an energetic body, with healing capabilities beyond what we can understand. It is no surprise that the energy vibration of the heart is green, known to be the healing energy of Archangel Raphael. When you hug someone, your heart chakras vibrate together and create a healing force. I repeat, follow your own judgement on this. If keeping your distance is best for you, do that, but look within and expand the energy of your heart to fill the space around you and touch others. You can’t get sick from energy.
Many blessings and healing to all of us. Namaste.
