THE PANDEMIC PAUSE, ALIGNMENT
Everyone has been affected by this COVID 19 virus in some way, it's rocked our world! For those of us in California we have just passed the halfway mark to the time when we are scheduled to come out from the quarantine. I was thinking this is the perfect time to use our ability to level up our lives so that when we gain our freedom to leave our homes, it's with new found resilience and power. I keep saying that this is an opportunity to make the inner changes while we have this time.
With the heaviness that our hearts are feeling, it's super important to bring in the lightness of our being as well. Keep in mind that feelings are creative, meaning that when we feel in our heart it "talks" to the body. If we are feeling fear, anxiety all the time it will certainly not vibrate in our body well, it literally causes "dis-ease". When we have the ability to choose calm and be more comfortable we create ease and build up our immune system rather than breaking it down, (check out the photo below). In times like these it's important to keep a balance with taking care of our health, wealth, mental clarity and believe it or not, having fun. It is alright to laugh and play when in lockdown, in fact, it's wildly important.
But for now, the present moment is what we’re dealing with, so what can we do to stay in alignment for these next weeks. First, take a minute for yourself and take inventory of what you’ve been doing that has worked during lockdown… appreciate that, kudos for what you have done! Then, take a look at what you've been doing that hasn't worked quite so well for you. No judgement
Now, what are your options?
What can you do that will keep you more sane and healthy?
Write it down, create a list of options for you to choose from each day.
Here are some suggestions.
∞ Put a reminder on your phone to take five during the day to refocus.
∞ Take time to go outside and put your feet on the earth to be grounded.
∞ Make new food choices that support a healthy lifestyle.
∞ Call an old friend to reconnect.
∞ Clean out useless items in your home.
∞ Make a vision board.
∞ Join up with a new form of exercise.
∞ Meetup with new like-minded people.
∞ Watch a video that will inspire you.
∞ Play with a child or animal that makes you feel happy.
∞ Go outside at night and watch the stars.
∞ Do something that makes you feel brave.
∞ Tell someone how much you appreciate them.
∞ Take a calming bath.
∞ Play a game with friends.
∞ Meditate in a new way.
∞ Organize one closet.
∞ Be of service to the world.
The suggestion is to add to this list on a regular basis. Make some of the actions fun, and some that are more on the challenging side. I have a resource page on my website that is filled with options for mental, spiritual and emotional growth.
I know that many people are watching the basic news channels, it’s a good idea to find other sources of news as well. It’s important to see what is going on from many angels, make your own informed decision on what is real, and what you choose to do about it.
I wish you well on your journey, may love and light lead your way!
