The Gifts of the Coronavirus
Updated: May 30, 2020
Welcome to our blog space and inaugural first edition!
Given the striking and de-stabilizing effects the coronavirus pandemic is presently having upon our world, I feel called to share these thoughts with you.
WHAT IF the coronavirus were intended by this blessed and beautiful Universe of ours as a means of getting us to pay attention to ALL that is truly important and sacred in these earthly realms?
WHAT IF it were being used as a means of catalyzing our awakening and rattling our complacency so that we could all relish in the joys of our ever-expanding and deepening levels of ascension?
WHAT IF the coronavirus were a means by which we get to acknowledge how distracted we are, how much we nurse our addictions, escaping to pursuits like social networking, excessive shopping, imbalanced tech use or other things because most of us haven’t the courage to look at ourselves in the mirror and do our inner work?
WHAT if this virus were being used to show us whether we live succumbing to Fear, or exalted in Love?
WHAT IF the coronavirus were showing us how much we value Life itself? Whether we are Life-affirming and Life-honouring, or submit to the FULL-ON CHAOS, insanity and unsustainability of a world gone mad?
WHAT IF the coronavirus were teaching us how to stay in our power centre, calm, confident, full of joy, empathy, compassion and love ~ in spite of ALL of the chaos going on all around us, so that we may be of service to others?
WHAT IF we knew that we drew this experience because we, as spiritual beings having an earthly experience, are yearning for a more elevated, evolved, empowered human experience, more WORTHY of us?
WHAT IF we knew that we were in the midst of attracting such an experience that is better aligned with WHO we are in our truest essence?
WHAT IF the coronavirus were here to show us the insanity and shamelessness of the lies, falsifications, manipulation and deceit in the current social and cultural structures that permeate our world?
WHAT IF its very existence tells us that our culture is birthing ever MORE expansive and epic cultural co-creations, while exponentializing our ascension process?
WHAT IF the coronavirus were an impetus ushering more GOOD than we ever thought possible or even imaginable?
WHAT IF the coronavirus were here to help us to re-structure the economy in a good way, in a way that is more humane, sustainable and socially equitable for ALL ~ not just a select 1% who’ve figured out how to play the game, but compromised their Humanity in the process?
WHAT IF the coronavirus were showing us the sheer absurdity and outrageous sensationalism of the media and politicians who feed them like dogs to the wolves?
Would we still allow ourselves to live in a zombie-like stupor?
Would we still be in fear?
Would we still allow ourselves to be apathetic, disengaged and disempowered?
Would we still enable all loss of hope, optimism and positivity?
Might we actually feel GRATEFUL for its existence, and receive it as the gift that it is, while still taking all measures of precaution in staying healthy?
Might we seize the occasion to use those stunning state-of-the-art, but sterile kitchens in our homes, to prepare healthy home-cooked meals ~ using fresh ingredients made with love, rather than succumbing to the ease of picking up fast food or processed foods that hardly qualify as REAL food at all?
Might we take the opportunity to express our love for all our precious loved ones, by connecting with them, telling them how deeply we love and appreciate them and sharing with them how much their presence in our lives means to us?
Might we express our love for our fellow human beings, inspiring them with a kind and encouraging word to uplift them beyond the darkness of these present days?
Might we use this quarantine period to reflect on WHO we are as human beings and seize the opportunity to heighten our self-care and self-love?
Might we hold, the following prayer, in our consciousness for ourselves, loved ones and, indeed, all of humankind?
May we all remain aligned with our Higher Self.
May we shine white light upon all our organs and bodily functions of our blessed body, breathing LOVE into every one of our cells and pores.
May we have the courage, strength and wisdom to know in the deepest part of ourselves that ALL good is prevailing upon ourselves, our loved ones and our world. May joy, peace, beauty, health and abundance reign upon all of us in these earthly realms, now and always. We give deep thanks for the beauty of our world, the preciousness of family, friends and community, the privilege of doing the work we are honoured to do, the unwavering love and support of our blessed ancestral guides and angels, and for all of Life’s generosity and abundance!
With Deep Love,
As a holistic psychotherapist with 20+ years of professional experience in holistic wellness, energy medicine and life coaching, I’ve put together this checklist below in the hopes you will find it a helpful means of supporting your immune system:
-reduce/eliminate the amount of sugar in your diet. Sugar depletes immunity
-add immune-supporting foods, including: organic beef bone broth, citrus, red peppers and all vegetables, garlic, probiotic rich foods such as yogurt, kefir, sauerkraut, kimchi, kombucha and ginger
- turmeric is a powerful anti-inflammatory. Combine with pepper to optimize anti-inflammatory effects
-stay hydrated with nourishing herbal teas and water. Your immune system needs water to cleanse and purify
-add ½ t. to 1t. Camu powder, chlorella and/or spirulina in smoothies. Camu is 500x more potent than vitamin C supplements. It’s a very powerful anti-oxidant, anti-viral and anti-bacterial, as are organic blueberries
- consume 2T. of omega 3/6/9 oils daily like Udo’s oil or flax seed oil. Sprinkle hemp seeds, chia seeds and/or golden flax on salads, cereals or grains for overall health and prevention of Alzheimer’s or Parkinson's
-use an anti-viral spray like Colloidal Silver (Real Raw Foods in Naramata) and/or Beekeeper’s Throat Spray
-double your dose of magnesium when you feel your immune system may be compromised. Crops grown in depleted soils don't have adequate minerals to supply us with the nutrient-rich food we need to keep us healthy
- at the slightest sign of flu or beginnings of a virus, take elderberry zinc lozenges
-a good quality of daily probiotics. Healthy gut, healthy body!
-manage stress with self-care practices such as meditation, prayer and yoga. Keeping our vibration high confers big-time immunity!
-get adequate sleep and rest
-15 minutes of natural sunlight daily free of sunblock, and/or vitamin D supplementation, 5 drops of 1000 i.u, daily
-keep your lymphatic system moving through daily exercise and dry skin brushing
-connect with loved ones, even if only by phone, FaceTime, Zoom or Google Hangouts
-read or listen to content and podcasts that elevate, inspire and leave you feeling happy. Consider tuning in only selectively to mass media. Even there, be discerning about choosing mostly conscious informational sources. Listen to music you love. Uplifting classical music? Frank Sinatra, anyone? Enjoy some lovely laughs. Listen or view comedic content. All pleasure-inducing activity will leave you FEELING GOOD, as your serotonin levels surge! it's the all-time best defence known for protecting your immune system
-wash your hands frequently for twenty seconds or more
