PERSPECTIVES ON CORONAVIRUS—PART ELEVEN


Dear Ones—

For decades there has been a shift away from being totally in touch with the Earth. As farming as a way of life has become mostly about mega-agritech companies and more and more people leave the land to live either in apartments, or perhaps with a small 1/3 acre of land with their house which is mostly grass that is minimally interacted with, humans have forgotten how to find themselves Within. They feel like they have less control, less of a sense of Who They Are...even that they have less time for introspection to perceive all their inner resources.

Then they more easily jump to anxiety, fear and panic. There is less of a sense that they can just deal with whatever comes their way, even if it might be hard or unpleasant. And now we have this wonderful opportunity to withdraw from the outer world and reconnect with our Inner World. We don't have to explain it to ourselves or others, asking for allowances or even forgiveness. Social distancing is a gift while we have it, like so many things if we have the eyes to See.

Humanity is moving through a societal “choice-point”...a time when EVERYONE must make a proactive choice about what they want. Some have seen it coming and already chosen what they want. Others didn't want to choose Spiritual Mastery, fearing that it would be too hard or overwhelming and they didn't want to choose. Others were told what to choose by their family of origin, their traditions, even by advertizing and they just went along with it. These last two are not proactive choices, they are default choices. People think they will be “bad” if they don't want to make a choice to proceed towards Mastery right now and they can't bear the thought of that.

Think of this choice-point like this: when you get ready to have surgery, the medical team goes over the procedure and all the risk factors, and then you have to sign the consent. If you are an adult and are able to make your own decisions, you can't just have someone else sign the consent. You can ask the medical team what they would do in the same situation, but they can't sign the consent for you. You have to decide whether or not to sign the consent yourself. That is an active choice-point.

We have seen what happens when part of society shames others into thinking or doing what they don't want to do or don't see as important, by talking about being “politically correct.” Those shamed try to be a certain way, but it wasn't a choice made voluntarily, it was forced on them. And there is a backlash, a rebellion.

Now is the time to make your own decision about what is important to you. Do you want to stop reinventing the wheel and learn from others, or would you rather learn to do it yourself? Do you want to actively work towards Mastery on your Spiritual Path or just take it easy and not work so hard? Do you want to lay up treasure on earth or “treasure in heaven?”

We think these are trick questions because others and even we ourselves judge the answers. We think that if we choose one we will have to totally give up the other. But here's the paradox...and remember that paradox is a sign that points us towards our own divinity. The Universe, or God, or Allah, or Yahweh, or Supreme Creator, or your Higher Self or whatever you want to call That doesn't actually care what you choose. Only people do. And ever since the decision was made to explore Oneness through separation, there has been a longing to get back to that sense of Oneness that acts like an internal homing signal to help us find our Way. We will all end up back at that station at some point, but we will all take different buses and cars, boats and planes to get there. HOW we do it doesn't matter.

And unlike what we've been told, there are ways to “have it both ways.” You can follow your Spiritual Path AND it can be easy enough to maintain. There may be “course corrections,” but those can happen with a default choice as well. AND you really can't get off your Spiritual Path! Your perception of it might be limited or non-existent. You might be going so slowly that you can't believe that you are actually moving forward. You might even think that what looks like taking “3 steps backwards” is failing when it really is just searching for a little tiny game trail in the woods that isn't marked but you know it is the one to take.

There are so many dimensions and they all co-exist with each other. We may only perceive the one dimension that we all share, but trust me when I say that I have experienced the juxtaposition of many dimensions all next to each other!

So what does this have to do with the Coronavirus? This is a chance to get back in touch with Stillness, to lay aside the outer trappings of how things “should be” and tap into What Is. It is a time to really think about your priorities and decide: do you want to rest for a bit but you'll pick up the pace later on your Path? Do you really want to achieve Mastery when there are so many things coming together to synergize our efforts now? Are you willing to lay aside the ease of lazily dawdling on your Path, realizing that it doesn't fill you with joy and strength and conviction, and try what you might really want with all your being but are afraid you might succeed at? Can you trust that you can move rapidly forward on your Path AND also enjoy your family and your work in the world?

Humanity needed a wake-up call and now we have one. Use this time to go deep within. It isn't death that scares us; it is the thought of going to our graves unfulfilled by not reaching the full potential of our Spirits. What do you really want for yourself? For the children in your lives? For the future? What gives you the most profound and abiding joy? What work seems effortless because it is such a part of Who You Really Are? How to do you fashion a life that reflects these things, and start making the choices that can bring that closer to Reality for you? Are you willing to show up in the world feeling and thinking and wanting and doing the very things you most want to manifest in our world?

This is a great opportunity!

Namaste'

PERSPECTIVES ON CORONAVIRUS - PART NINE


Dear Ones—

This is a time when things are changing very quickly. It is forcing us to learn to make good decisions while things are in motion. This improves our flexibility, which in turn improves our ability to change without it stopping us in our tracks. This is a big step on the Spiritual Path of inner growth! And ultimately, it is necessary to learn to do this, so that we can become fully telepathic, jump time and instantly manifest.

So let's stop and think through some things that should help with this. Where are you not living in full integrity? Could it be that you delight in another's misfortune or exaggerate a story to get a laugh? Do you “tell a little white lie” in order not to hurt someone or to protect yourself? Do you claim all income from your business to the IRS, but not the cash or the tips because “no one can track those?”

Do you not fully engage with others because you hide behind a mask from Who You Really Are, afraid that they won't like or approve of you if they “really knew you?” Have you made a claim that you ordered something to be delivered but when it arrived it “wasn't in the damaged box,” just to get a second item for free? Or have you misrepresented your need for medical care or some other “special dispensation” that was needed, not because you were truly in need, but because you were afraid you wouldn't be seen, be believed or have enough?

And in this time of COVID-19 fears and panic, have you bought what you need but resisted the urge to buy to excess? Or have you bought so much of whatever...toilet paper, gloves, masks, etc. that now there are huge shortages? Did you do that so you could make money off of others who “just didn't think ahead?” Have you done something because you “could” but not because you “should?”

I'm not saying you are not entitled to get what you truly need, but getting more than you need is like preventing others who have very little from getting enough just so you can have a huge and sometimes unreasonable cushion or advantage. What if you were the one who “didn't want to be told what to do,” or didn't believe “it could happen to you,” and exposed yourself to others, and then got terribly sick from COVID-19 and desperately went to the ER, only to be denied care because there were no more respirators?

So if you have had these or any other lapses in judgment, and we all make mistakes, now think about how you can fix your behavior so that you are living in better integrity. Give up your mask of perfection to be authentic, even if you feel vulnerable. Make amends where you need to. Change your life so that you can go forward living without fearing your shadow. This is what makes you truly free. This is what protects you from being manipulated. This is what makes you Whole.

We DO depend on each other, even strangers. We ARE all in this together. This is our opportunity to free ourselves AND step more fully into the “human family.”

May all beings be healthy. May all beings live in harmony. May all beings be happy.

PERSPECTIVES ON CORONAVIRUS - PART EIGHT


Dear Ones—

Friday the US hit the 100,000 confirmed cases of COVID-19 mark. Please know these several things, which are really hard to fathom:

--Cases are increasing by a factor of 10 every week. If things stay the same, then in one week, April 3, we should be on track to have 1 million cases confirmed.
--Confirmed cases in the US are the folks who are the sickest that are seeking medical treatment at hospitals, and therefore more likely to pass away from this infection. If the death rate is assumed to be 2% of those with confirmed cases (and that number is varying somewhat as we get more information), then of those first 1,000,000 cases, twenty thousand will die.
--Those numbers might well go up as our hospitals are overwhelmed with cases while facing equipment shortages.
--Remember that we have also had a shortage of doctors and nurses in this country for about 30 years, since I was in nursing school way back in the dark ages. We have coped with this by discharging people earlier and earlier, and having higher staffing ratios (rather than 3-5 patients per nurse on a regular hospital floor, that has gone up, with the night shift having much higher numbers than any other shift). On top of this our health care workers are getting sick which makes the shortage even more acute.

So that is pretty bleak information. Please make sure you are doing everything you can to physically stay away from others; clean ANYTHING that comes into your house; eat well; get plenty of rest; and boost your immune system! Please urge others to do the same and if they won't, cut off your contact with them! And if you are sick, STAY HOME OR GO TO THE HOSPITAL IF YOU CAN'T BREATHE!!

This sounds bad, doesn't it? But there is one more thing that no one is talking about, but it is starting to happen. Hospitals are so overwhelmed that they are completely refusing to allow family members to come in to visit. It isn't clear to me yet if that is only for COVID-19 patients or for all patients, but I know that even if you are going in for regularly scheduled chemotherapy for cancer treatment at the University of Michigan Health System right now, you only get one person to accompany you, and that person has to stay next to you for the entire time you are there...no wandering around.

But think through this further: if COVID-19 patients don't get visitors, that means that as people die...potentially speaking, as perhaps your own loved ones, or God forbid even you or I are dying, we must be alone to do it. A hospital in Seattle is having armed guards turn away all visitors from the hospital. Think about that a minute...

In our country, we are notoriously bad at facing and talking about almost anything that has to do with death. So, putting this all together, I want to urge EVERY SINGLE ONE OF YOU to please consider these things:
--do what you can to not only stay healthy but to not spread it to anyone else even if they are strangers to you.
--consider now whether you are willing to get the vaccine when it is ready, which optimistically speaking may be as long as 18 months.
--there may come a time when decisions have to be made about who in the ICU can actually have a respirator, based on the likelihood that they will recover or not. How do you feel about that? Can you work through those issues now? You don't have to have an answer for this, but at least know this is a realistic possibility.
--MOST IMPORTANTLY: think about ALL your relationships. Do you have unfinished business with ANYONE, close or not, that you need to get to closure? Then be the first to take steps to bring closure to those issues, those situations and those relationships that need it. Even if you feel awkward or don't know where to start, start by saying that...”I don't know how to approach this, but I'd like to clear the air...”

Things are happening fast with this pandemic, and you may not even have time to call someone once you find out they are sick. There are many out there who presumably have COVID-19 but haven't been tested because we are still short of tests. For the most part, to be tested you have to be pretty sick, and from there to “unable to take a phone call” can be lightening quick. Makeshift ICU's will not have the luxury of a phone by every bedside, and generally cell phones are not allowed in ICU's because they interfere with all the high tech equipment used to keep people alive.

Please call your loved ones. Tell them you love them, forgive them, ask for forgiveness. Do whatever you need to do to take care of the unfinished business you have in your lives now before it's too late!

Tomorrow I hope to write another newsletter on a more uplifting topic, but sometimes in challenging times we have to face hard facts and deal with them so that we can live with a more open heart.

May all beings live courageously. May all beings be healthy. May all beings connect in Love.

PERSPECTIVES ON CORONAVIRUS - PART SEVEN


Dear Ones—

As I look at this virus and the field of a person who is affected by the virus, I realize that among other things, this virus has the capacity to release vast amounts of current and backlogged sadness and grief (from previous lifetimes) from the population worldwide. There are some who have been working on their issues all along (even if only in this current lifetime) and have made great progress. There are others who have even been assisting those around them by helping the them to release their backlog of grief and sadness. There are still others that don't look at their "current sadness" (meaning whatever is accumulated in this lifetime) much less working through their "past sadness" (meaning from other lifetimes)--they just don't want to look at anything unpleasant or negative. This backlog is significant, and while we understand that humans don't want to look at anything difficult, doing so is how one makes the jump forward along one's Path when a Divine Opportunity presents itself.

At this time in our collective evolution, many things are coming together to help us all make this leap forward a little more easily. a) There are many places on earth now where there is enough ease from starvation and worrying about immediate survival that people have the luxury of time and inner space to look at their issues (rather than just digging their next turnip). b) It is no longer thought to be a sign of weakness (at least in most of the developed countries of the world) to even have issues, much less look at them. c) Society values looking at those issues enough that friends will let us talk about those issues aloud, and even insurance will pay for many kinds of therapy in an attempt to heal. d) The Earth herself is evolving along her own Spiritual Path, like all of us, and any effort towards Wholeness by any sector, synergizes the efforts of all making the movement towards Health easier for everyone, even if they don't know that they have “issues.” e) And finally, there are many many Helpers here in other dimensions that we may or may not be able to see with our 3D eyes, that are here to generously help us in any facet of our Walk.

For those for whom part of their Public Mission is to assist others by clearing and neutralizing others' karma, there is an added benefit. For steadfastly doing this voluntarily without judgment, the Universe “gives back” by forgiving the workers' own karma without them having to work on it so hard themselves. Energy moves in a circular fashion. What you put out comes back, often tenfold. If you pray for and help with the release of others' karma with no thought to what you get in return, your own karma is also forgiven and released. We urge you to seriously ask your Higher Self if you have been one of these Servants.

Many humans on the earth still do not realize that they must make proactive choices right now about how they want to walk their Spiritual Paths. This isn't a "fake choice" where they really don't get to choose what they want and they will be swept along with everyone else. Everyone must make a proactive, considered choice about what they want for their own Spiritual Growth. If they decide that they want to continue at their own pace and not use the extra assistance that is available now for all, they must actively choose this rather than just a "default choice" meaning that they don't choose at all.

As past karma is worked through and released, the likelihood of accumulating more karma drastically goes down. There is a cleanness of spirit that translates into a greater sensitivity towards what is happening energetically, including among other things, sensing others' emotions. Because of all this, many of us are picking up on others' overwhelming sadness (that has never been processed) as well as regret for not having worked harder all along the way to this point, and a fear that they are helpless to make up the time lost in this short time now. This is the essence of the widespread but non-specific depression or darkness that many are picking up on now.

If you feel you are one of these, we urge you to focus on which parts of your mission you would like to do (whether you want to release for others anymore, or release for others but only a certain amount of time per day for example) or whether you would like to assist humanity in some other capacity, or take a break. Once you have made this decision, you can always change your mind again if you desire, but we all need to think about this and make some choices of our own.

From our point of view, what you actually choose doesn't matter. Once those choices are made, then you can put up whatever boundaries are needed so that you can do your work in the world with a clear and buoyant heart. That doesn't mean that you won't periodically feel compassion and sadness for others, but it won't be the lurking dark energy that many of you are feeling now on others' behalf. If you should decide to continue to help others to clear this very same heavy, dark energy, we urge you to put some limits around it--only during certain times or only while praying, or only for your immediate family, or whatever seems to work for you. There are ways to do your work in the world that don't totally exhaust you and make your labor of love become slavery. This is part of self-care.

May all Beings be proactive. May all Beings be strong and courageous. May all Beings Wake Up.

PERSPECTIVES ON CORONAVIRUS - PART SIX


Dear Ones—

We know that some of you are doing a good job of staying out of fear and still protecting yourselves from exposure to COVID-19 while also staying in connection in some way with those around you. We know that others of you are finding yourselves stressed by what feels like health threats, or by financial threats, or both and are having a hard time.

Please know that when people are walking through what feels like dark places, they tend to think of it as some sort of failure on their part, or on the part of society. But nothing could be further from the truth. Being in a dark place is NOT because you have somehow failed, but because you CAN be there. In other words, you have worked on whatever it is that you are learning so that you need bigger challenges in order to test out your new skill in more challenging conditions. This goes back to what we have talked about before: when people are on a path to Mastery, they don't need to prove themselves to anyone or to the Divine. They only need to prove themselves to themselves. As humans we think that we aren't really Masters unless we can do that great new skill when it is hard to remember to do it, or to stay focused, or when we are distracted or in pain or fatigued, etc.

So let me say this again: You are not in a Dark Place because you failed. You are there because you can do it! You might mess it up, or you might not mess it up, but you feel like you could have done it better. You might initially forget what you were supposed to do if you were in this situation, and were late getting to a head-space where you could do your new skill. None of that matters! You will be at that level until you get pretty good at that level of challenge, and then there will be a new challenge.

In Kindergarten, you learn your numbers. In first grade you start to learn to add and subtract. Over the years, you learn to multiply and divide, do fractions and ratios, etc. If you keep going, you learn algebra, geometry and trigonometry. Once in college (if you are on a scientific track) you may learn calculus. Each new level builds on what came before, and most people take classes up to the level that they need for whatever job that they will hold. But you can't go to Kindergarten and start with calculus...it just doesn't happen. It takes a lot of work and practice to get there. The same thing with walking on your Spiritual Path.

Learning to be a Master on your Spiritual Path is similar, except that you are not taking one subject; you are learning to become a Master across the board: boundaries, will power, self-care, how energy works, manifestation, intuition, and more. Some of these subjects will be easier for you than others because you have been working on them for several lifetimes.

So when you find yourself in a place that you would characterize as a “dark place” for you, this is NOT a failure. Instead, this is PROOF that you are getting better and better at what you are learning. It may not be fun or pleasant, but it IS proof that you are getting somewhere!

Congratulations!!! Keep up the good work!!!

PERSPECTIVES ON CORONAVIRUS - PART FIVE


Dear Ones—

There is a great surge in online meditations and blogs about COVID-19 aimed at decreasing people's anxiety and improving people's health, mostly by either changing the coronavirus so that it is less virulent or by pushing it away from society in general. While there may be no one talking explicitly about “the war on COVID-19” we would point out to you that this attitude (of pushing it away or making it less virulent) is simply another form of the “war mentality.”

We urge you to see that point of view only makes a conscious being such as the virus want to fight back for its own right to live a peaceful life. It is not enough for humans to tolerate the virus in our midst, or even to accept it! Because we truly are all One, we must learn to genuinely embrace it as a beloved next door (or even temporary live-in) neighbor. But we want to assure you that getting to that perspective in no way increases its ability to infect you or kill you! This is not a turf war! Think instead of it like this: a child wants to play with her parent, but the parent thinks he or she is too busy right now to play. What does that child do? She hangs around Mom, makes noise to distract Mom, perhaps even pesters or demands that Mom “Come play with me.” Only by taking a break and playing, even for 10 minutes, can Dad have a prayer of having some peace to finish his work. You parents out there know the truth of this. It is counter-intuitive, but it is the paradox that shows you are close to Truth.

So by the same token, find ways that you can change how you think of this virus and learn to actively embrace it. Talk to it, ask what it has to teach you as an individual or as part of society. What is its roll in helping us All to evolve into the next greatest version of Who We Are? You can do this while you continue to social distance yourself, because others are probably not thinking in this way, and you still don't want to contribute to overwhelming the medical system for those who do get sick. Continue to take supplements that boost your immune system, because a strong immune system is needed whether you get sick or not. Even when you love your next door neighbor, you still lock your front door at night while you sleep or when you go on vacation, don't you? That isn't warfare—that is just good boundaries.

We also want you to take this time of social distancing and more time for peace and quiet to think about how you maintain your social network. Did you slip into a habit of texting your friend while you sat in the restaurant waiting for lunch to be served rather than actually speaking face to face with him? Have you interacted enough via phone, text, email and Skype that you are now comfortable with them and more sophisticated in knowing how to interpret meaning when vocal tone is not in the equation? Or at least how to take things less personally, or verify what someone is saying to ascertain tone when it is absent? Have you learned how to write in such a way that you miscommunicate less often through unfortunate word choices, because you see where the pitfalls are likely to be and avoid them now?

Over the course of waiting for coronavirus to find its new niche or home in Nature, you will need to maintain your connections to those you love, and you will likely use more technology to do that when you feel you can't meet face to face. You may not like that; you may even grieve the loss of face-to-face time with your friends and family. But during this time you will learn to re-order your priorities so that when you can go back to being in the same room with your loved ones, you will find that you will be more Present. You will revel more in face-to-face conversation and appreciate the connection that affords to its fullest. And when you do need to communicate via technology, you will be a better communicator as well. Those are changes that are positive for all of society. And we know from other situations that are similar that those lessons are not lost over time—think of the changes in interpersonal interaction and in the amount of litter on Manhattan before and after the event that you call 9/11. Think about how much closer a community is when they go through a natural disaster and learn to pull together to recover. This is that opportunity, right here, right now, on a worldwide scale.

May all Beings be healthy. May all Beings be happy. May all Beings live in Harmony.

PERSPECTIVES ON CORONAVIRUS - PART FOUR



Dear Ones—

Spirit has more to say about this time in our collective evolution: “We know this is a time that is challenging for you, but the lessons of positive engagement, connection with All That Is, and learning to perpetuate hope from within aren't truly mastered unless there is a “crucible time” (a time of great pressure, chaos, and challenge) in which to practice staying in these attributes. This is how humans “prove to themselves” that they are becoming Masters and moving towards Ascension. Many of you feel you have worked towards this Ascension for so long—not just in this lifetime, but in many others as well—and you would like proof that you are getting close. Your ability to stay a) positively engaged (meaning proactive without wallowing in fear), b) connected to All That Is (which means you willingly reach out to and assist others that you don't know or that you don't even particularly like being around), and c) to perpetuate hope from within (which means you can look at what is happening around you, see the patterns from a higher perspective, see the good that is happening and translate that into genuine hope for yourself, others and for the future).

“It is this last that we have spoken about the least over the last years and we would like to address this here. At first glance, it seems that perpetuating hope from within is really finding it outside yourself, according to our definition, no? But please note two things that are very important. First: if you only “create” hope from inside yourself, over time it loses its strength and feels like and even acts like “false hope.” When this happens, some are called “Pollyanna” (falsely optimistic). Others fall into despair because they don't feel True Hope, and they have what is called a Dark Night of the Soul, where they feel unconnected to whatever they call the Divine, but also feel disconnected from themselves and from others. They become cynical. In short, false hope over time leads to darkness in the soul. That is not Mastery.

“Second: it takes inner work on your part to learn to consistently see things from a Higher Perspective no matter what is happening around you or how you feel. It takes inner work to recognize the clues that things are really turning around in society, and to realize that is proof that positive change is really happening. To do that, one must be able to see the Signs and to have enough inner strength to “swim upstream” against the tide of the news cycle and the majority opinion that things are “going to hell in a hand-basket.” And it takes a great deal of focus to be able to keep your eyes only on those positive things, even when your body rebels by activating difficult cell memories or getting sick, when you are being made fun of, or when you feel like a “voice in the wilderness.” All of these things and more are the Inner Work of maintaining True Hope for yourself. And then it is paramount to share that with others as much as you can, while still being sensitive to others' and your own 3D world difficulties and challenges. Please note that we don't say you won't feel fear. What we are saying is that you will actively DO something with what fear you may feel.

“That is what it means to perpetuate True Hope from within.”

May all beings be healthy. May all beings be safe. May all beings be Masters.

PERSPECTIVES ON CORONAVIRUS - PART THREE


Dear Ones—

Spirit asked me to write another newsletter on Coronavirus. Let's start by thinking about driving down the center lane of the highway in your car. Three or four cars ahead in the left lane, you notice a car that starts to swerve and you immediately start to slow down and maybe even move into the right hand lane. That car seems to recover a little and then it starts to skid out of control, and you realize that the road has become icy. You slow down further and maybe even get off the highway at the first chance. When you are in a safe place, you notice that your heart is racing and that you are breathing fast. Maybe you are even a little shaky.

Most of us have not stopped to think about what is happening here. You see something untoward beginning to happen and your mind, your consciousness, responds appropriately. You are monitoring the situation and then that car skids and you realize the situation not only is affecting that car that was swerving, but that the icy road can directly impact you as well so you respond appropriately again. Once you are in a safe place physically, you notice the reaction of your physical body. It is in flight or fight mode. Usually we immediately at this point merge our experience into one and see no difference in them.

What in fact has happened is that you had two responses: the conscious response with executive function of the brain directing parts of the body to respond, and the physical response of fear. The conscious part keeps you safe in the moment when there is time to notice and anticipate what might happen. The physical part wants you to run like the wind to get out of the way of something and it actually started to respond before you even had time to mentally process what was happening. This response is what kept you alive when the saber-tooth cat started to chase you (in the past) before you even saw it starting to come after you. That adrenaline response is associated with extreme fear and it is a small step to generalize that to the point of slipping into panic-mode. But both systems have their advantages and are tools that keep you safe.

Now let's go to the coronavirus. Armed with this information and point of view, we can unpack what is happening here and in parentheses I'll link it to the example above. We hear about the coronavirus (first see the swerving) and we start to monitor the situation. We buy hand-sanitizer, herbs to boost our immune systems, maybe even some masks if we can get them (we respond appropriately). Then we get more information about the virus as we have more experience with the science of it: testing, new statistics about how likely we are to catch it after being exposed, which are two different things. (This is where the car starts to swerve and you realize there is ice—i.e. It can affect you directly.) We respond again appropriately by buying a month's worth of groceries (slow down again and get off the highway). At this point, we can allow the physical response which feels like extreme fear to dictate what we think, say and do about this situation (or go into panic mode) OR we can see the two different responses as a normal part of how all levels of our organism are put together to keep us safe on many levels and not allow ourselves to go into fear.

When we go into fear or panic, that strong emotion inadvertently draws towards us the very thing we don't want to have happen to us, both individually and as a society as a whole. The more we see that it is a separate way to keep us safe but in this instance things aren't happening fast enough to need it (no need to run from a saber-toothed cat that isn't running), the easier it is to stay in the mode of responding appropriately. That also means that there are fewer shortages of household basics (TP, masks, gloves, Purell, etc.)--we will buy what we realistically think we might need rather than trying to buy out the store. We are more likely to share with friends and family because we have 40 bottles of hand-sanitizer and they couldn't get any because it was all bought out...you see what I'm talking about here.

But we also make better decisions—when it's appropriate to stay home if we think we might be getting sick, rather than fearing that someone isn't going to do that so we have to stay home all the time.

Responding appropriately to changing situations, new information, etc. doesn't require fear. We may be thinking about it over time, but because we aren't allowing ourselves to go into fear-mode, we are NOT drawing it towards us—individually or as a society. We maintain our resilience. We don't give away our power to those who are fear-mongering. We are working together as a whole society. All these things further keep our immune systems working at peak efficiency. When we lapse into fear, hoarding, and withdrawing from our support systems, the pH of our bodies changes towards acidic, which causes the cascade of inflammation, lowered energies, poorer immune system function, etc. Standing in our power not only helps us, but it makes it easier for us to stay calm and strong and truly help those around us who don't know they have a choice, who don't know what to do because they already have slipped into panic and now can't make good decisions.

This is another opportunity for us all to practice what we Know in a situation where we can prove to ourselves that we are Masters. (Remember my saying, “No one cares if you unconditionally love those who already love you.”?)

Go forth. Live courageously (note this isn't the same as recklessly). Hold steady the fabric of society. This single thing may be the impetus for our American society to move away from constant friction and divisiveness and move back towards kindness, connection and ongoing success for everyone!

PERSPECTIVES ON CORONAVIRUS - PART TWO


Dear Ones—

So now we come to the bigger picture, the higher perspective of what is going on with Coronavirus. This is a direct quote from my Spirit Guides:

“For eons, humankind has approached life with a fighting spirit, a “warrior's heart,” if you will. Humans must come to realize in a very tangible way that attitude will ripple out into the pond of their existence and affect every single thing around them: people, plants, animals, microorganisms, stones, to some extent the Earth herself, and then extending on out into the universe. Because there is some headway being made in terms of Buddhist ahimsa (respect for every living thing), Christianity's “turn the other cheek,” even the more recent spread of Non-Violent Communication principles, there is now enough worldwide critical mass to take this principle to the next level. That next level is moving from viewing this in regard to interpersonal communications, or as a reason not to kill insects that have strayed into the house, to extending it to every facet of Life. This is a time to expand the scope from personal interactions to societal norms, to stand up against social habits of making fun at someone else's expense, of stepping on others to get what one wants, of labeling everything as the “war on...” It is the time to realize this goes beyond actions of violence, like mass shootings and wars. It is a time to realize as a worldwide community that words that hurt others or that separate others from themselves and their communities are also a form of violence. It is a time to realize that even thoughts unspoken that are harsh, cynical, sarcastic or in any way mean-spirited are also a form of violence, for they contain energy that goes out into the world to harm others energetically, even if no one is aware that the energy is doing that.

“This is a time to figure out as a society how to work together for the betterment of all; a time to realize that every thought, word or action that harms others, harms oneself. It is a time to decide how to restructure society so that All can work together for the good of All, and to level the playing field so that those who don't have enough and are trying to gain the basics for life (including not only food and water, but personal power, respect, trust, better health, quality education and meaningful employment (with a living wage if necessary)) but also how to motivate others to join this way of life non-violently.

“This is the time to further define the edge between discernment and judgment. How does one decide what is right for oneself and move towards it, without stopping others from doing the same, even when you don't agree? And while looking at judgment, how do all beings access the resources necessary to look at their own self-judgment, which prevents them from ever being able to love anyone else truly unconditionally?

“This is an opportunity for the world to work together, not in small groups, but as a group. This is an opportunity to learn to govern oneself in self-discipline so that you can outgrow the habit of wanting all others to be like you so that you can trust others, and move towards trusting others to already be like yourselves and allowing them the means of moving forwards towards Wholeness.

“It is time to govern one's thoughts so that all thoughts are kind and loving so that the leap to telepathy can be complete. It is time to govern one's fear so that humans stop drawing toward themselves what they most want to avoid. It is time to learn that “having dominion over” the Earth doesn't mean to “use it however you want” but instead means “husbandry”: the care, conservation, expansion and use of resources for the betterment of all, INCLUDING the very Earth that is supplying them and all Her inhabitants.

“For those few who don't want to walk down this path, this may be their opportunity to jump to another place to take a slower path towards their Ascension. For others, this may be the opportunity to leave this lifestream and do their work or their public mission from another dimension.”

“We urge you to see this as another step towards working towards these goals. It is life's way of making sure that you don't waste this lifetime thinking that you have all the time in the world to do your personal spiritual work; that if you want to, you can put it off indefinitely. It is part of the series of prompts that keeps pushing us all to keep looking at our lives and working towards Ascension Living. And for those who don't want to do that yet, they must make an actual choice to take a break before taking up that work at another time. None of us can fully know who is choosing to leave this lifestream for which reason, nor is it anyone's business but their own. Look only to your own spiritual goals, and take up the full freedom you so desire by stepping into the responsibility that goes with it.”


Namaste'

PERSPECTIVES ON CORONAVIRUS - PART ONE



Dear Ones—

Spirit has asked me to address the current Coronavirus situation in two newsletters: the first to talk about 3D world, practical, “voice of reason” perspectives. The second part (which will be in a day or two) to talk about the energetic, larger picture perspective.

From a nursing point of view, the “reported cases” means that someone has had a positive actual test for this virus (Covid-19). There are a limited number of these tests, because it is a new virus in humans, so many cases are going untested and therefore unreported. This means that the reported death rates, while apparently a little higher than the usual respiratory infection, are most likely elevated from what they really are. (Please think this through: if only those who get tested are the sickest ones showing up in ER's and who actually convince the doctors to use the test, which they have in limited numbers, then these are the ones reported, and because they are sicker than average, they are more likely to die.)

Many colds that affect humans are either from the family of viruses known as rhinovirus or coronavirus. That means that this strain is new, but the family of viruses is known. Think of it like this: you know what the red oak tree outside your front window is, but your neighbor plants a chinkopin oak tree on the property line. It sort of looks like your red oak, but it definitely is not the same. So even though this strain came from bats and hasn't been seen in humans before, the body knows what to do with it. Like all new infections though, it takes the body some time to make antibodies to fight it off and to protect you from it later. Symptoms are any of the following: sore throat, fever, coughing and sneezing, runny nose and shortness of breath. If you have shortness of breath or cannot sleep because of major coughing, please see your health care provider!

There are risk factors—that means that people with any of these health issues needs to be more wary than others, although it doesn't give young, healthy people a “pass.” Risk factors include: older than 65; pregnancy; immuno-compromised by either organ transplant, cancer, some auto-immune diseases, or diabetes; chronic lung, heart or kidney diseases; smoking, drug and alcohol addictions or bad nutrition; and a history of multiple bouts of bronchitis or pneumonia. If this is you, talk to your doctor if you have any concerns, but be that much more careful, please.

This virus is spreading rapidly because of a couple of things: first, we are in a society where large numbers of the population fly anywhere they want to go in the world. Most people in the past stayed within a few miles of where they were born for their whole lives. Even when I, Karlta, was young (I'm 63 years old now), my generation was the first to move permanently out of state once I left college for anything other than escaping persecution or starvation. Secondly, as humans we want something outside of ourselves to “fix the problem.” This is like the “magic bullet” way of treating disease, but instead of a pill, we want a quick fix like masks, gloves, isolation, etc. to fix it. While there are legitimate places and times to use these things, the most important things to keep us healthy take effort on our parts: eating a really good diet (think of food as medicine) to maximize our immune systems; plenty of rest; washing our hands—you need soap enough to make a real lather, scrub well the palms, between the fingers, around and under the nails, back of the hands and wrists—for at least a minute with a good rinsing—before eating, after toileting, and regularly throughout the day; learn to stop touching your face, mouth, nose, eyes, etc. and if you must touch your face, do so after washing your hands, and put a tissue between your fingers and your body; regularly wash off the things you touch most often: computers, phones, door handles, faucets, and handrails. These things take constant effort day in and day out. Finally, it means that WHEN YOU DO GET SICK (with anything), DON'T GO TO WORK!!! Either stay in bed or call it in.

If you want to stockpile something so that you are out in public less, rather than get hand sanitizer (which isn't any more effective than good handwashing, it's just another short-cut but with drawbacks like germ resistance and toxicities), stock up on supplements that can boost your immunity: elderberry, mullein, echinacea, garlic and onions in the diet, Vitamin C (500 mg. Tabs a few times a day is better than ultra-high doses), 10,000 units per day of Vitamin D, and goldenseal. There are things you can take over the counter that help you feel better faster once you get sick with any respiratory thing: olive leaf, oil of oregano (this is NOT the same as essential oil of oregano), garlic, onions, grapefruit seed extract (diluted in water to either drink or to wash surfaces), and colloidal silver. And don't take them all at once—what if you run out before this finishes going through the population and factories haven't been able to catch up yet? Two or three things at a time, and then increase to more things temporarily if you feel like you “fighting something off.”

We as a worldwide community have already seen the increase in natural disasters and whether we realize it or not, we have seen an uptick in periodic “pandemics”: Avian Flu, SARS, Swine Flu, MERSA, Ebola, antibiotic resistant pathogens, etc. and which trend I think was originally kicked off by the early days of the AIDS infections. While there are other things that boost these: living in close quarters with people, housing large numbers of animals together for food, overuse of antibiotics (particularly in farming practices) and poor farming practices, the list of things that will rise up to challenge us will continue. We as humans approach everything as “the war on...”, which puts us in conflict with microorganisms. If all things are sentient, which many believe them to be, then how can the microorganisms not fight back? Also, students of prophecies of the end-times see that there are correlations between differing accounts—that there will be increased challenges from both natural disasters and disease with potentially increased losses. Please note what I have said: “Potentially increased losses.”

I believe that we are never warned about impending doom unless there is something we can do about it!!! I have seen this time and again.

Part Two of this discourse will pick up there in the next day or two. Until then, be steadfast, put out the effort to keep yourselves well, and focus on anything that you can be grateful for to help you stay positive.


Namaste'
