As we take the necessary precautions during course of the Coronavirus, pandemic, it is important to remember to remain open to all possibilities and to prepare for the best.
Many people will venture down the path of fear in their mind and will arrive at the worse possible scenario of lack and loss. And this is perfectly okay, so long as we don’t get stuck there!
Remember, this is not a time to give up on your dreams and goals but time to strengthen them. Often, a crisis of some description arises right before the break through. See this through til the end because as big as it may seem right now, as it passes through, Life will bring our dreams into reality.
It’s important to take yourself down a path and explore a far better life beyond fear and the crisis. There are many lessons to learn, changes to be made, and challenges to overcome, but on the other side lies a world of plenty.
There is no doubt about it, what we prepare for will eventuate. As we accept both the worse and the best possibilities, we get to choose which one we prepare for.
Don’t get caught up in the doom and gloom. Separate your self from that line of thinking and deliver some good self-talk that will raise your consciousness. This will allow you to paint a picture of goodness, coming out of the crisis. And remember, the ripples of your imagining will positively influence those around you, near and far.
As we are willing, we will accept the worse and shift our focus to preparing for the best possible outcome. In doing so we will, individually and collectively make a significant difference to the unfolding throughout our world over the days, months and years to come.
Remember, prepare for the best, you never know what’s around the corner.
Many blessings Marie 😍
As I sat back and observed what was happening around me, I had to ask myself “What’s more contagious, Fear or the COVID-19 virus?’ This virus will pass, but unless we learn from it the fear epidemic will continue to pose an even bigger ongoing threat. Think about it.
Fear brings about more stress and tension. It lowers the immune system and raises our chances of getting the virus and many other diseases. Fear creates havoc where ever we go. There is no external ongoing vaccination for fear.
Situations like this allow us to exam what drives our life, faith or fear. They don’t ‘make’ us afraid, they reveal what’s inside and we get to choose who we put in the driver’s seat, faith or fear. It reveals what’s inside and the emotions and behaviours that arise from either fear or faith. We may not be able to control the virus but we can control our attitude on a moment by moment basis. These types of global events can bring out the best or the worse in us. Ether way it is an opportunity for us to change the way we think because our thinking, whether fear or faith, as well as our actions create a ripple effect around us. What ripples do you want to send out?
If we look through the eyes of fear we are likely to see doom and gloom. As we shift our perception and look through the eyes of faith we will see a world of love and light, regardless of the circumstances, and this is the messasge you send out into the world.
The million dollar question is ‘Will you let fear run your life? Or will you go within and turn on the tap and let the all-powerful natural spiritual aspect of faith overcome the fear? This simple solution is free, and much easier to access and use than you might think.
Today in a coffee shop, tables were being rearranged in accordance with the social distance regulations. One person described the place as a war zone. There is no war out there, only within ourselves. Yes, we have to keep our social and physical distance from others. However, as we stay in touch with our personal spiritual faith and let that flow, we will put a stop to the fearful war on the inside and the panic attacks on the outside. And we will be able to better support others.
When something like this happens we, as individuals need to take responsibility for our actions or non-actions, and what we are passing on to others.
Every day in every way I am safe and well protected
Every day in every way I am well provided for
Every day in every way I am loved completely and deeply
Now, if you knew that to be true, how much easier would your day to day life be?
I think with my heart were powerful words spoken to me by a young woman with Downs Syndrome. Carolyin’s declaration left it’s mark on my world many years ago, and remains one of the most precious and well-used gifts today.
“My daughter has Downs Syndrome, can you help her? She thinks she has a spirit inside her,” he said. Both parents were deeply stressed, not knowing how to handle their daughter’s intellectual difficulty, or her desire to be like other normal young women. Although I had no experience in this area, I promised to do my best.
Carolyn was an animated young teenager with a vivacious smile. It took time to be able to understand her distorted speech, and I questioned how I could possibly support this young woman. As I let go of my intellect and relaxed, I became inspired.
I wrote out an affirmation ‘I AM Love’ on a piece of A4 paper and I spoke it out clearly. I repeated the exercise and asked Carolyn to do it with me. Together we wrote ‘I AM Love’ and spoke it out together. We continued this exercise writing out different affirmations like ‘I AM Beautiful’, ‘I AM Kind’, ‘I AM Joy’, each time sounding them out energetically.
Out of the blue, Carolyn stopped, looked me straight in the eye, thumped her chest and declared loudly and passionately, ‘I AM Heart’, ‘I think with my heart’. I not only heard her message with my ears, I felt it in my heart. At the end of the session, I left Carolyn with a pile of ‘I AM’ affirmations and suggested she write some out so we could look at them at our next session.
As I greeted this extraordinary, young woman the following week, she excitedly showed me the collection of ‘I AM’ affirmations she had written over and over, and over again. Throughout our second session, many times Carolyn persevered through frustration until she was able to clearly and confidently write and passionately speak these wonderful things about herself. Here was the proof in the pudding. This young woman was demonstrating the words and works of her Godly Self, which were being expressed through her heart, not from her intellect. The experience was Divine. I was deeply humbled.
Carolyn didn’t see herself different. From her perspective, she saw her self as as the same, with he same normal desires as other young women her age. This was proof for me that when we are willing to see beyond the so-called disability we see the heart and spirit of the person looking back at us.
My time with Carolyn was short-lived, but holds lasting memories. When I left, I prayed for another teacher to come along to help her to express more of her spirited self. Later I wondered whether she came into my life as my gifted teacher? I think with my heart, became a powerful and precious affirmation for me, and remains a constant reminder that when we get to the heart of the matter, we really are all the same.
Even today, when I get caught up in the chaos of the mind, I remember Carolyn’s words, ‘I think with my heart’ and I smile, allowing my focus to drop down into my heart. From this blessed perspective, I am able to think, hear and see beyond the challenges to what’\s possible.
Don’t take my word for it, take the words of Carolyn and THINK WITH YOUR HEART.
