What this virus brings up…
The more time you spend alone, the more emotional stuff stirs up. We’ve never been forced to sit with ourselves like this. It’s like a huge mandatory retreat.
And retreats do this…they bring up the shit we avoid to face. They allow triggers to come up and out. They force us to look at the past, sometimes with regrets, resentments and sadness. We begin to beat ourselves up for things we cannot change.
This feels like a giant social experiment. It might feel like you’re being forced to go into therapy alone.
But you are not alone. There are millions experiencing these challenges.
Reach out. Talk to others. These emotions that are coming up have always been there but you were too busy to entertain them. Be gentle with yourself. Get to know yourself and your family.
It’s time, darlings, to clean your emotional bodies. It’s time to embody your spiritual truths. We are experiencing gigantic amounts of uncertainties. We are witnessing deaths of human life and the lives we had before this. Things are quite different now. Many folks aren’t working, and have lost their jobs. There are financial fears. Health fears. Anger. Hate that serves no one. Claustrophobic tendencies are rising. No one wants to feel out of control. But that’s also an illusion. You still have control of you.
This might be a while. So please get comfy with the discomfort and begin healing yourself. Allow yourself time to really dive into love while letting go of the experiences that no longer serve you.
You know all those folks who triggered you? Well you won’t be entertaining them for a while either. What a perfect way to distance yourself!
You know that job you hated so much? You won’t have it now. Take this time to reinvent yourself.
You know those things you wanted to do but had little free time? Look at that! Here you have it.
You remember all those times you said you wanted more time with your family? 💥 bam! Here it is.
You have the power to take this time and work on yourself. Get to know you. This virus puts things in perspective. You can choose love and compassion to go viral. You can forgive and let go.
If you are with your children all day I understand how trying it can be. This is all a learning curve and experience. And one in patience.
My heart goes out to all those out there putting themselves at risk for us. And to all the families struggling with losses…prayers to all.
I love you. Let’s raise each other from a distance through compassion, love, kindness, humor and understanding. There is so much good that’s waiting for us after this is over. We will be emotionally available to help the world come together like never before. We need each other now. I love you.
