#JustAThought… The Shift

A virus teaches
People to slow down and breathe
Nature gets a break

A virus changes all
Losing people, money, time
Daily exhaustion

While everything is slowing down around the globe, some of us are called to give everything these days, may it be nurses, doctors, people who are working in grocery stores, journalists, policemen, border control, logisticians, … Some fear for their financial existence, for everything they built up in their lives, what they put all their heart in.

Some of us experience the opposite. Less stress and hectic, more time for themselves, more time to breathe, more time to relax, more time to enjoy the beautiful spring weather, and time to reflect. And mother earth is taking a deep breath these days too.

However, I could imagine that after the crisis is over, something in the way we live and how we look at our planet and our fellow men may have changed. To look at it from a higher perspective, the world may have needed it. Haven’t we all talked about something that will happen to raise our awareness? It is not a war, nor is it a gigantic natural disaster. If we look a bit closer, we should be thankful because it could have been something way worse to raise our awareness.

In Love and Light

A time of transformation. Many need to learn to deal with themselves and many find new ways of being active. We are not distracted that much anymore and “old” problems may surface again. A time of renewal all over and so indivicually and personally.
It is healing for me that I am given so much time now. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t wish for such things to happen but now that the situation is what it is, I feel the given time like a huge gift and I am blossoming completely.
Haha, my hair too, in all colors. But I don’t really matter. We are all the same these days… haha!
Lots of love and huge virtual hugs, dear Amy 💖

I agree with you, Erika. Something had to have happened to get the world at large to slow down and in some aspects, stop. The pace has been that of frenzy, go go go, and to have that stop is to me a huge breath of relief! My life has not changed much, so to speak, other then not able to go to the gym and get my hair done. I’m figuring out how to handle these things by actively changing my routine. There is going to be ton of people with bad hair days soon fyi. How will we still feed about ourselves? Will our confidence level drop? Or are we going to learn to apply all that we have learned (those of us who have) and despite the changes we refuse to allow anything outside of ourselves to bring us down. I know for a fact when I go for my walks, people seem more eager now to talk. It’s time to throw out me me me, and embrace us us us.
And this I say to you. I have a sister who I know is having meltdown after meltdown because her whole world was based on CONTROL. Now that she is no longer in control I know she is spinning in the void. She even will not speak to me and it is in her silences that speak louder then words ever could. To put on a “good face” all the time she no longer is able to do. She is hiding. And more importantly I’m finding out just how important I “was” to her. I’m in the process of forgiving and letting go ….. From here on out, only honest, heart-centered people will be in my inner circle.
LOVED this post, dear friend!! Keep your light shining!!! xo

I really hope from the bottom of my heart to learn and to apply the insights we gained from this crisis. People are the most important – real people, togetherness, union, family, friends – real social life. Who knows, maybe over time your sister will be able to let go of her necessity to control. Maybe this will help her to relax about this.
I find it amazingly relaxing. I have not been that relaxed for years. I get all of those things done which have been waiting and were squeezed in piece by piece wherever possible. But all in hectic and with a tight schedule… gosh, how relaxing this is now.
I was laughing, yes, we all might learn too to accept each other for the being we are and not for our hairdress, fingernails, cosmetic-treatments… lol!
Have a blessed day and weekend, Amy 💖

I hope the same thing, Erika. In times like these, no one really knows how he or she will act. I’ve already seen shocking behavior which makes me ask if I was in that position, what would I have done?
My sister …. I’m letting go. She did this to me when my Father was dying. She refused to talk to me then, deliberately shutting me out. I will not do this again. This hurts, and this goes deep. Yet, I know in my heart when the chips are down and solidarity is required the most, I cannot depend on her.
This is new for you, dear friend. I know what it’s like to crawl the walls because I have nowhere to go. The gym and my few outlets were all I had. Now I have nothing but the parks and the weather is still iffy. I’ve been cleaning like a madwoman the past few days readying for the days I can be outside and stay out there. I’m even thinking of going through all my clothes and shoes in my closet, organize and clean that, IF the weather remains chilly.
Anyways …. hair! I have headbands that I will wear when my dark roots start coming in. Just take my word for it, the colors are like black and white. I’m sure those who have the means will have their hair stylists come to their homes. I’m not one of them. I’ll make due with what I have. As for cosmetic treatments, those went out the window a long time ago when I began taking care of all these babies. My hair was my only vice. sigh This too shall pass. LOL

Spot on Erika. I had to visit to read your wonderful thoughts. The link on my post about the virus is saying similar, it’s about how each of us react. I’m seeing some beautiful positive energy right now. With others thinking of others and .wand of helping.
May we all immerge, more than we were before and stronger with in because of it.
Sending you love and blessings Erika take care, our love and lights are needed more than ever.
I’m staying in my light love bubble 🙂🌱🌷🌺 strengthening my solar plexus. No coincidence this escalation in the third month, the third chakra.
It took a energy emotional hit recently. So I will be back once I’m centred.
💙💜💚🙏 Much love

Again, similar thoughts shared at the same time… Wonderful!
Yes, indeed, I feel the change and I feel the cleansing energy the virus brings along. A dramatic change in our ways of thinking and in our ways of how we look at life and at each othere… and at ourselves and our purpose here.
I haven’t thought of the link between the month and the chakra before. This is an amazing thought. The relaxing aspect it brings along, calming the whole system (in general, economical, and personal, individual).
Recover well and I am looking forward to what you are taking along and will be sharing with us once you are back.
Love and light to you, my dear friend 💖
