A CONVERSATION with CORONAVIRUS COVID-19
The world is constantly changing, the sun rising and falling, new inventions and developments in technology, infrastructure, the growth and decay of trees, our passing years, the tough times, the fun times. It appears that nothing remains the same. Yet there is one constant sound, a voice that keeps calling to us, a presence that remains unchanged
In my journey towards a happier, more contented life, I look back on the most painful episodes as my greatest moments of growth. These were the times, particularly in close relationships, when i came to realise most about myself, the times when i have learned to allow barriers to drop and accept those barriers that still wish to stand. It is the most painful experiences that have been my greatest teachers. Matt Kahn once asked ‘What if the worst things that ever happened to you were actually the greatest opportunities you’ve ever been given?’ And so it is with gratitude that i recall those times when my heart was broken, for now i can see that it was only broken so that it could open up and allow more and more love to flow freely. The best choices you can make aren’t necessarily the most attractive ones. Just because it’s not all rosy in the garden doesn’t mean that you’re not leading a fulfilling life. Life can deal out tough times and will only do so in order for us to become the best versions of ourselves that we can be.
‘Life could not have happened any other way for you to become who you were born to be’ Matt Kahn
So i have come to welcome all that life presents to me, for i feel that everything is a perfect manifestation of Divinity in form. Everything is Love, dressing up in different guises to experience its unlimited potential, yet always at its core remaining the same, Love, that constant unchanging voice that is calling to us always, always inviting us to the paradise of plenty. This does not mean that everything in this life has to be pleasant. It does not mean that i have to like everything, that i’ve done something wrong if at times i find it challenging. It is a reminder of the constant unchanging invitation to love, to know that you are Love….. that you are loved….. an invitation to be that Love. No matter what life presents, you can go within and find the resources, the strength, wisdom and Love to first greet and welcome it, even if it’s inconvenient, knowing that through whatever difficulty it poses, Love will have the final say, because Love is the voice, the unending murmur and beat at the heart of all.
‘As Love pervades everything what is that we are not thankful for ’ Amma
And so it is with a heart of Love that I turn my attention to COVID-19. I welcome it and ask, that through all the challenges it poses for me and for us as a society, what are the messages it would like to share?
‘Hello COVID-19, you are very welcome to my world. What would you like to say to me?’
‘Sleep well, eat good food, exercise. Listen to your body. Use your wise and loving intuition to respond to all the information being broadcast about me.
My name was given to me by the World Health Organisation who also monitors my progress and advises governments around the world how and when to respond to me. There are different schools of thought on the source and cause of COVID-19 and thus different views on how to respond. Yet the age old message is still as revelant now as ever before: Take good care of yourself, be kind to others and relax.
This is my greatest message to you, relax, breathe easy and know that all is well. The Universe gives you all you need in every moment. Like all people, you are doing the best you can. Like all people, you cannot do any better than what you are doing and you are not being asked to do any better than what you are doing. Like all people, you have never made a mistake and you never will. You are perfect exactly as you are; you always have been and always will. So breathe. Your angels are surrounding you and supporting you with every move you make, with every breath you take. You are not alone. And contrary to what many feel, I am an energy that is here principally to help you. Many people are feeling fear because of me and you can sense this fear. Fear is a complex emotion and has been part of the world’s lot since ancient times. But there are now new, lighter ways to face fear which help to heal it. One of those lighter ways is to see fear as containing many messages which are for our benefit. All is Love at different frequencies. Like a dimmer switch, fear is a very low vibration of Love. It’s very dark down there, difficult to see the Love, but it is becoming easier. The fear you are sensing now has been in incubation for centuries waiting for a moment in time, in which it could feel confident enough to come out into the light, reveal itself to you and know it would be listened to, acknowledged, respected and at last find peace. This, my friend, is one such moment, a moment of great opportunity, a moment in which you are invited to face fear like never before, to face fear not as a victim in a hostile world where everything is happening to you, but as the kind, compassionate angel that you are, in an abundant world where all is happening for you. Now is the moment to respond to fear with Love. Show yourself to be truly kind as you care for yourself and others and look out for the vulnerable around you. Show yourself to be truly wise as you listen openly to all the information you are receiving about me. Show yourself to be truly loving as you, at last, face the fears that have waited for you for so long.
This fear is here now to help you. It wants to speak to you and tell you what it has longed for all these years. It wants you to ask it, ‘How may i help you?’ But first, it knows you need to relax, relax as best you can, as much as your body is able at this time, for you have led a very busy life and have had very little time to relax, so it knows you must take time out, slow down and perhaps for the first time ever, learn how to relax. And in these days of restricted movement, you have an ideal opportunity to do just that, slow down and relax. Because you have been raised in so much fear, you have spent a lot of time in fight or flight response. You have thus become accustomed to shallow breathing, only utilising a small percent of your airways, wanting to divert all your energy to protect yourself. And so to begin with, focus on breathing naturally and as you do, begin to go deeper and deeper, deep down into your belly, not just into your throat, or your chest, deeper still, down into the base of your belly, big long luscious breaths to give your lungs a good stretching, breathe new life into the very channels that I am able to infect. Open up your airways and this conscious injection of fresh air into deep and dark caverns of your body will, i know, play a major role in responding with Love to the fear that my presence generates. An antidote of Love for the fear that the world is feeling, all playing out in our lungs. It will feel uneasy, laboured at first, but stay the course, there’s plenty of help available, lots of further information if you wish to make this a daily practice. Now is the time to bring new life into your lungs. Begin to breathe easily, naturally, breathe like a baby and become once again the brilliant shining light being of beauty, of relaxation and joy that you truly are.
Now that you have taken time out, and you are as relaxed as your body can be at this time, you are in the best zone to ask the question, ‘How may i help you fear?’ Then listen. If you perceive a reply, act upon the guidance given as best you can. Be the parent this fear has waited for all its life. You will not be lead astray, nay, you and your whole community will be lead to wider and wider vistas of the peace, joy and Love that you already are.
This fear has been like an abandoned child, neglected, waiting on your doorstep for years. When you turn and attend to it, it may remain silent, it may take time for it to be reassured that you have it’s best interests at heart. You must be patient. It may need to come back to you again and again and again looking for that reassurance. And each time you will be there to welcome it, for it is not important to know the time in which it will find the peace it yearns for, what is important is that you give it the time it asks for, each time it comes calling.’
‘Thank you COVID-19 for all that i can learn from you.’
This is a moment to stand in the perfection of our Divine essence, for it is from there and only from there that we respond with Love. It is not the first time we have been called to do so. Jesus for one has been inviting us to the banquet of our glory for years. He has said in the gospels, and i paraphrase: Love your enemies, pray for those who persecute you, that you may become like your Father in Heaven, who lets the sun shine on the evil and on the good. If you only love those that love you or greet only your own people, where is the growth in that. Be perfect, he has said, as your Father in Heaven is perfect.
May all people affected in any way by COVID-19 be blessed with all the peace and joy their hearts desire and it is so.
