In our lifetime, we have never seen an event such as the Coronavirus pandemic.
In my 35 years on this planet, never have I walked down city streets in the middle of a Tuesday afternoon to find everything closed with barely a person on sight. As I safely left my home to lay rocks outside of businesses and in hidden spots downtown, I stopped to think about how others are feeling.
With a smile on my face, feeling full of purpose, I paused to considered those who haven’t quite seen the light at the end of the tunnel.
My heart goes out to the restaurant owners, retailers, and businesses who have halted their daily routine to flatten the curve. That’s why I am focusing my energy on doing what I can to help- even if it’s small.
You are stronger than you realize.
I thought about what we can control in terms of our media consumption and the conversations we have with family or friends (check out a post I wrote a couple of years ago about how you’re lowering your energetic vibration without even realizing it).
What are we focusing on? Fear? Financial insecurity? Health concerns?
Many of us feel compelled to join the negative conversations and will embrace some of their fear- much of which isn’t your own.
That’s why we need to focus on the helpers, not the problem.
I read an amazing article by author Steve Pavlina, who shared his views on the importance of lightworkers in today’s society:
“The lightworker’s duty is to serve the health of the body. Lightworkers strive for a healthy, sane humanity. They’re like white blood cells fighting diseases such as cruelty, apathy, depression, disempowerment, dishonesty, and cowardice. Such diseases damage the health of the body. The #1 disease lightworkers battle is fear. Wherever there is fear in the body of humanity, lightworkers are driven to respond.”
Yesterday I chatted with a few friends who are visibly concerned about their health and safety. I am, too. However, my focus isn’t on the news and the negativity. It’s about focusing on what I can do in the now.
We all have a choice of what messages we want to send- do we want to spread the fear, or send light?
Do you want to look at the problem or the solution?
Even though we have to stay home, there is so much we can do both online and within our own homes to raise the overall vibration- and choosing what conversations you partake in is a part of this.
I am doing my best to be mindful of the energy I am putting out- and instead of fear, I have faith.
