After listening to our Governor of South Dakota, K. Noem, I felt I wanted to pass on her message about the Coronavirus.
Take time to visit with family. Take time to walk in nature and observe the beauty around you. Take time to find what you're grateful for. Have a thankful heart and praise God for the beauty and love he has supplied us.
In this time of fear, worry, anxiety, and grief, find the positives in your life.
I am thankful for my family and friends. I am thankful for all of my audience who likes to read my articles. I am thankful for my health. And I am thankful for being able to help others, whether through providing a Reiki service or simply giving a smile or praise to someone passing by. If I have enjoyed someone's work or art, I try to tell them. It's always nice to hear a nice praise about one's work or art.
Be thankful that we have a good healthcare system. Be thankful for your neighbors who are there to help you if you need it. Be thankful for the love you've experienced in your life. Be thankful we can see the sun shine brightly many days. Be thankful for that stranger who asks you "how are you doing?"
Give your time to what makes you feel good inside.
I want to add my scientific/energy view point on this-Corona virus. Another way we can help ourselves stay healthy.
The Heart Chakra, which is located in your chest, follows the guidelines of, "Love yourself and Love others." I bring this particular chakra up in this article because it governs the Lungs- the Corona virus is attacking peoples' lungs.
In Reiki we learn that dis-ease will begin in the energy level of the affected chakras. When this particular chakra is blocked, it is blocked by our own held onto Grief. (Not letting go of losses in our life whether through death or rejection.) When a chakra remains blocked, it creates a stagnation of energy which I will describe as like a Late Summer Pond affect. (smelly and full of disease.)
The Corona virus attacks the lungs. Is it possible that people who are more severely affected by this virus have had a hard time with the Universal law of "Love yourself and Love others" in life?
If this is so, the Heart chakra may have been already compromised before the virus attacked, due to blocked energy.
Many people don't understand that we have, as humans, a Physical body, Emotional bodies, Mental bodies, and we have Spiritual bodies to take care of in life. We are energetic beings.
When we have had emotional experiences, we need to not deny them or push them under the rug, sort to speak. We need to face them, feel them with no judgement, and let them go.
It is said to be able to love others, we must first love ourselves 100%. We must accept our weaknesses as well as our strengths, 100%. Many people have a lot of pain in them to heal. When one acts out in a negative way, they share their pain to others.
For today, let's just "pause". Accept what is. Surrender to the present moment and just "pause".
