As we continue to find ourselves in this altered state of being, what are you noticing in this new place? Are habits of overindulgence that don’t serve you taking over? Are you discovering new ways to spend your time that you have been waiting for the time and space to do?
Is your mind replaying old events bringing up guilt and regret for how you handled those situations? Is old unprocessed grief that has been lying just beneath the surface, rising up into your dreams?
Do you have aspiring ideas forming about how you want your new life to be after this is all over, perhaps more aligned with your higher values of family, friends and health? Are new desires of creation forming, new inspirations of what’s possible?
A little bit of all of the above?
As news of sickness and death reverberates through our lives, either intimately with ourselves, family members and friends, or with the larger world, we feel the heaviness of this weird reality and the loss and grief that accompanies it. And we are humbled and powerless by this experience that is out of our control.
But there are ways we can feel empowered now, to be at cause in our lives. We can let our hearts gradually soften and open to what is arising and to listen to its simple request.
What is your heart asking of you now? To forgive yourself for past mistakes? To forgive others for past mistakes? To express your appreciation of yourself and others? To recognize your humanness and simple desires to give and receive love as deeply as possible during this precious time we are given on earth?
What really matters to you? Is what matters becoming more clarified as you take this pause in your life? How can you live what matters to you more fully than ever before going forward? Will you choose to more boldly be a shining expression of who you are?
It takes devoted time, quiet and stillness to excavate the deeper answers and to hear the deeper call. Are you willing to give that gift to yourself now? The soul of the world has given you a unique opportunity to do so. Will you use it?
And a gift for you…This is incredibly beautiful: https://youtu.be/KtX1r0SzxlI
