Knowing Who You Are
As the Earth rotates toward the Sun once again, the winter recedes and spring arrives. The trees leaf out, the grass springs forth, and flowers bloom. We wake to bird song, ducks with ducklings trailing, cats with kittens, and life bursting forth. Does nature follow a handbook to tell it when to unfurl and bloom? Of course not. As Maya Angelou said, “A bird doesn’t sing because it has an answer, it sings because it has a song.”
We may still be sheltering inside, but our hearts are bursting with spring energy. What song is in your heart to sing? Simply because the access to the outside world is limited, our access to our limitless internal nature is still fully open.
We merely need to tap into our Divine nature.
I get cabin fever too. I want to spread my wings and fly away to another place—a beach, a mountain top, a forest, a river, or the ocean where I can take a deep breath. In those moments, I do take a deep breath and go within to those limitless spaces in meditation where time and place do not exist. The places where I do not exist in a small body, in a confined space, in a small town where my contact is restricted. I am a mote traveling across the Universe to the Unknown. I find beauty, passion, freedom, excitement, peace, and creativity.
When fear arises about COVID-19, health, my safety, and the safety of my loved ones, I go inward. I locate the place of fear and anxiety. I explore the fear, feel it, release it, and find the trust I have in the right order of the Divine. I generally discover the fear is not mine. It is the fear of others, the media, the hype, the culture, the world, death, the fear of ‘what-might-be’. I feel into my heart for My Truth. I have a ‘knowingness’ deep in my heart, in my bones, that I will be alright.
Living Healthy, Peacefully and Joyfully
My destiny is to live and be healthy. I have much more to do in my life. I have a mission to fulfill. I have more love to give. I have family and friends to love and be loved by. The world needs my gifts.
Some people feel their lives are complete. Others have no focus or purpose and are still searching for their destiny. This is a wonderful time for that inward journey. To seek that inner song, bloom, artist, creator. Perhaps it’s time to appreciate what you do, have, seek, or love in the now.
If you are at odds with the world, perhaps the virus will be at odds with your body. Fear, anxiety, distress, and unhappiness lowers the immune response. Peace, optimism, love, laughter, and happiness supports the immune system. Discovery of your inner knowingness and the connection to the Divine grounds the physical body to Mother Earth as we learn to live to our fullest here on this journey and sing our song of life.
