Truth be told, we have never seen times like this before. If we’re not careful, we will allow fear to cripple us. But we can’t. In the midst of this Pandemic and economic crisis, I want to encourage you to stop fearing.
Remember, the vision of one world will cost you the vision of another world. What world have you chosen to believe and live in?
I have chosen to believe in a world of faith, not fear. I’ve chosen to live in a world of plenty, not lack. I’ve chosen to live in a world of wellness/healing, not sickness and death. I’ve chosen to live in a world of love, not hate. I’ve chosen to live an a world of gratitude, not complaint or entitlement.
I encourage. you to chose to participate in thoughts and beliefs that are more powerful than fear. Chose to live in a world of vision and purpose. Chose to fight in faith.
You see, crisis always proceeds transformation and it is my prayer that we will all emerge from this more expanded, more kinder, more passionate, more loving than we were when we started. What we’re all going through will reveal to us who we are.
Romans 8:18 says, “I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us.” What will be revealed in you?
We can defeat this foe…but not with fear. We can defeat this foe with a collective commitment to prayer, meditation, love and faith…and when we Rise Up as ONE…we will Vibrate, Echo, Amplify so powerfully that it will literally SHAKE the Planet!
We are infinite beings…created by an Infinite God…and we can declare and decree what we want!
Language the life you want…not the one you don’t want. We can BE who We were BORN to BE!
But we can’t do this without each other…we must do this together…Because WE Speak as ONE…but in many ways…it’s the POWER Of a Collective VOICE! Now Let’s ROAR!
In 2019, I released my book Living in The Divine Ache™…Giving Birth to Your Next Level. Little did I know at that time, that we would all find ourselves living our own collective Divine Ache™ on a global level. We are all living in a time when millions are finding themselves stuck and facing some unimaginable truths about their lives and their future. We’ve got more questions than we have answers. For many, it feels as if they woke up one day in someone else’s life. We didn’t see “IT” coming. “How in the Heck Did We Get Here?” Many of us are scared, angry and confused, all at the same time. Because we are all traveling uncharted territories without a navigation system or map. How do we walk this invisible path without giving into our fears and anxieties? No one person has all the answers or even the right answer for that matter. Yet there is a PATH we can all take that will get us through the “Ache” and allow us to give birth to an entire new way of living, being and loving. I want to take you on that Path!
It’s true. We are facing some unthinkable challenges, uncertainty and chaos. For many, this has felt as if the rug has been pulled from under you. But I want to remind you that we’ve been through a lot of strange and unthinkable times before and we made it. And we will get through these times as well.
We can’t always look to our leaders and the government to save us…we must learn to save ourselves. As I listen to the experts tell us how to be proactive when dealing the virus…I am reminded of what my grandmother and mother told us growing up.
1. Wash your hands…we heard this over and over again. 2. Keep your hands out of your face. My mom used to tell me this all the time. 3. Clean up and put some a little Clorox in that water…we grew up with Clorox…cleaning everything from door knobs, light switches, pouring a little in our dish water and more. 4. Go to bed…the days of old were not spent staying up all night binge watching your favorite shows. Our parents knew that getting the proper sleep and rest kept the body’s immune system strong and that sleep repairs the body. 5. Open your mouth…and in my mouth went a heaping table spoon full of cod liver oil chased with some orange juice. This was given to us every single morning, especially during the winter months. My grandmother used to say, that cold, flu or pneumonia couldn’t stick to our lungs because we took this nasty stuff. But the truth is…we NEVER got a cold or the flu. 6. Eat your vegetables. We always had fresh veggies on our plates everyday…fast food was like a delicacy because we only ate it on special occasions. We ate from our own kitchen.
My point is, you already know what to do to keep yourself safe and healthy. Some of these ideas that I’ve shared may be too old school and may not appeal to you. That’s okay. I simply want to remind you that we all know how to survive. We’ve done it before and we will do it again.
Don’t allow fear to grip you and keep you from living your life. Take the necessary precautions, but also move with the confidence that God will take care of you. Move with the knowing that you will get through this.
As humans, we don’t like living between the knowing and the unknowing. But it’s a space where we can ONLY trust and depend on God and that’s a good place to be. I can assure you that on the other side of this crisis there will be some amazing lessons, blessings and growth for us all.
Remember to secure the children and don’t allow them to constantly listen to the news media or hear you talking about this a lot. Don’t language your life with negative words. Learn to language your life with words that give power, inspiration and hope. All our little ones need to know is that you will keep them safe. That it will be okay. Reassure them, make this time feel like an adventure.
Now, I want you to take nice deep breathe. Grab you some tea, kick your feet up and relax and get some rest.
Remain calm. You got this. Our God Still Reigns!
