I was at the grocery store a couple times this week. And no, I’m not writing to discuss the topic of toilet paper with you. (smile) Actually, what I desire to share with you is how both times, after leaving the grocery store, I felt irritable. And it was not because there was no toilet paper. I realized, after each visit, that irritability was the general feeling others were experiencing while shopping. I knew it wasn’t my irritability as I was feeling neutral and fairly good both times upon entering the store.
As an empathic person, I am able to feel what others are feeling. And I believe we are all empathic to some extent. However, some people are a bit more aware of this ability. Because of this, it is important for all of us to be vigilant, to stay centered and grounded in whatever is going on within ourselves and the world. Even if you do not venture outside of your house, you will feel the energy that is building globally at this time.
I have also discovered recently that my sleep is very deep and I almost feel drugged when waking. I slept very well last night and still took a nap today and had to drag myself out of bed after an hour and a half. I’ve always been a good napper but this was a different feeling. I realized there is so much emotionally charged energy around right now in the form of fear, panic, insecurity, confusion, anger, etc, that it can be challenging to keep out of the heaviness of this energy field if we are not aware. Napping can be a wonderful way to reset your central nervous system so you can be stronger to what is occurring around you. Participating in any activity that raises your vibration and brings you joy is a wonderful antidote to the difficulties in the world right now.
We are all a swirling mass of energy, there is nothing solid about us even though we buy into the illusion that we are a dense mass of cells. Because we are energy, we are in constant communication with the energy of the world and beyond. How much someone is aware of this energy varies from person to person and depends on how evolved they are as a human being and soul.
I also contemplate on the unseen world that is also energy. Viruses, bacteria are energy. Because of this, they too are interacting with us on an energetic level. Just as human beings have the ability to project love to a loved one around the world and have that loved one feel it, so too can we project love to the unseen world and hold the space for homeostasis, of balance, to return.
Humans and animals are not the only inhabitants on this earth. There are many other beings that most people are not able to see, who inhabit our earth space. However, some people have the ability to see and communicate with them. I have at times, seen nature spirits in my garden or out on walks in the forest. They usually appear out of the corner of my eye and I can hear them giggling.
Praying for the return of balance to all inhabitants of this earth is a powerful prayer. Everything, and I mean everything, responds to the power of love. We live with viruses and bacteria all the time. There are trillions of microscopic beings all around us and we live with them without any harm most of the time. It all has to do with how in balance we are with this unseen world and with ourselves and others.
The current state of the world is feeding into this imbalance, created by panic, fear and illusion. We have a choice in what we feed the world energetically. At every moment we have a choice to decide how we want to respond to what is manifesting around us. Do we want to send love out into the world and all of its inhabitants, both seen and unseen? Or do we want to feed the world the lower vibration of fear that feeds the very thing we are not desiring.
You might say that being in quarantine or isolation is a horrible thing and it’s hard to keep your vibration up during this time. I understand but please know it can be done. Just go on facebook and watch all the beautiful people of all ages and backgrounds, sharing their gifts of music, cooking, dance, poetry, inspirational messages, jokes. In the moments these people are sharing their gifts, their vibration is higher and they are sharing love. And in watching them share their gifts our own energy becomes lighter, more vibrant. Because love is the true essence of who these people are and who we are! I am humbled and inspired by every one of them.
If you are in quarantine or isolation, you might say that you have lost your freedom. Well, perhaps you can’t move your body out of your house like you desire. That part might very well be true. But your soul, spirit can never be contained no matter what is happening. The power of the human spirit with its unlimited creative potential can never be controlled or contained. Some of the greatest inventions came from people who were in a place and time of isolation and quarantine. As long as you have a mind and a spirit, you can travel the cosmos. In the future, I believe we will be able to teleport our bodies, but right now we can teleport our minds and souls.
I have worked with people in other countries over the phone and can clear energetic imbalances and know what their issues are because our energies are connected. Even if you are not on facebook, but are doing something creative at home by yourself, you are benefiting the world. As you do what you love, your vibration will raise and you will raise the vibration of the planet and assist with bringing it back into balance because everything is connected at all times.
I’m an avid gardener. Years ago, I was frustrated because I created so much beauty around me but did not have much time or energy left to share it with my friends and others as much as I would have enjoyed. Creating the gardens took many hours and most of my weekends. And then I experienced an epiphany. I realized, as I sat enjoying my creations one evening, that the gardens have their own energy. And that I can share pictures of them and that can spread the joy and beauty. However, even if I choose not to send pictures or have people over, the energy of the gardens and my vibration while working in them will be felt by the world in an uplifting way.
You have within you the power to choose how you create right now, every moment. You have the power to choose how you will respond in the grocery store or behind closed doors. Because here is the thing, the world will feel your energy whether you are alone at home or out in public. And not just humans but the animals, bugs, viruses, bacteria, nature spirits, all of it will feel your energy.
You are free no matter what is happening in your life. You have the freedom to share your words, your prayers your thoughts even if you are sequestered in one room. Even if you do not have a computer or paper you have the power of your thoughts and of your prayers. You can meditate and contemplate. How will you choose to use this power?
Everything on this earth is energy. Even this so called Coronavirus. You might say you don’t want to send love to a virus. That is fine. However, please remember that you can just send love and light out into the world and that is what will bring this earth and all of its inhabitants back to balance. And the greater number of people who do this will exponentially create healing for the earth and all of the fellow travelers on it.
So, choose wisely, love your fellow human beings, and all of the beings of this earth, seen and unseen. Let’s step beyond our egocentricity as humans and realize we are sharing this earth with so many other creatures. As much as you can, know you are free to choose, to create, to love.
Wishing you all balance in your life, love in your hearts, and health of body, mind and spirit.
