Have you noticed how much uncertainty is present in the planet recently?
Maybe you have personally experienced some form of uncertainty and the feeling that things are just risky now.
Will we run out of toilet paper?
Do we have enough supplies to last us in the case of a lockdown?
What I know from doing the work I do and helping hundreds of clients navigate through the challenges in their lives is this:
Most people are creatures of habit and the idea of change is unsettling.
Many of us don’t even know HOW to do change, because most of us have been conditioned to carry on doing what you know and what’s worked in the past!
So, how can you navigate through this huge upheaval if you don’t even know HOW?
As I reflect on the coronavirus, I find that I’m actually ok with it.
I’m not burying my head in the sand and downplaying the severity of it.
I found part of me bemused by the way the world was handling this crisis, and I caught myself judging people for being so fearful and so unaware.
Unaware that they allow themselves to be manipulated and controlled by people they deem to be in a better position to know what’s correct for them.
Unaware of their innate and divine right and ability to create their own reality.
Unaware that they are simply feeding the crisis with the energy that they are sending out individually and now, as a mass collective.
And I wondered why I wasn’t reacting in the same way.
I’d have conversations with my loved ones, who questioned why I wasn’t taking this seriously.
Don’t get me wrong.
It’s serious… a serious wake-up call to us all!
The impact that’s been caused is an actual thing and I by no means am downplaying any of that.
The suffering and loss that people are undergoing, the collapse to whole world economies, the unpleasant symptoms for those that have it… my heart goes out to all that have been impacted.
The thing that has changed for me is that I no longer fear death.
Being An Observer In The Chaos
I really do think that’s a massive part of why I am able to just be an observer in this crisis, without getting sucked into the drama and trauma of it all.
I found myself thinking, even if I do get it myself and die as a result, I’m ok with that because I have lived a BRILLIANT life.
Not only have I created many magical memories spent with the people that I love the most, I have also brought about change to this planet in my own little way.
I am so fulfilled with my life.
Maybe I don’t have the big house, the 6-figure income stream, the luxury cars and designer gear and all that jazz
That’s not because I CAN’T have it.
It’s just not that important to me, so I’ve never REALLY chosen it.
What matters to me more is that I have a joy filled life.
Where I’m activating joy and love in others as well as in my own life.
What’s important to me is that I get to live life on MY terms and have the freedom and autonomy to do what I love, love what I do AND be loved for it.
And my biggest desire is that I be the best contribution to this amazing planet and people that I can be.
My mother always said to us, “always leave things better than you found them”.
And that’s stuck with me for all my years.
I wanted to leave this planet better than I found it.
Have I managed to turn things totally around?
And have I made a difference?
I’m constantly reminded by so many wonderful people in my life how much I’ve changed the entire trajectory of their lives.
Not just clients… friends, family, colleagues and even strangers.
And it isn’t because I’m a “healer” or a “coach”.
It’s because I choose to be ME.
I do what comes so naturally to me, I do all the things that light my soul up and I keep choosing to do me, even when it seems counterintuitive.
And that, my dear friends, is so deeply fulfilling.
So much so, I no longer fear death.
If I was to die, I can die satisfied that I LIVED a brilliant life.
It wasn’t always like that for me, though.
How Can You Get To The Other Side Of Fear?
I remember a time where I was gripped with fear, engulfed in feeling unworthy and never being good enough.
I remember the days when I had so little self-belief and self-trust, that I would HAPPILY give my power away and look towards others to make decisions for me.
I constantly sought validation from others.
And I never really got it.
I see why now… nobody on the planet can really give you that validation.
The minute you put them in that position of power over you, you hand over control to your own happiness and joy to them.
And let’s face it, most people have their own life to live, so don’t actually have the capacity to constantly keep thinking of you and checking that you’re feeling validated!
In fact, most people won’t even do that for themselves, so why would they do it for another?
So, over to you….
Do you have fears around the coronavirus?
Is the irrational fear behind that death?
And if this strikes a chord with you, then let me ask you this….
How fulfilled are you in your life right now?
With your career, your health, your relationships?
What deeply matters to you that you’ve been putting off for so long, that you’ve “settled” for or “made do” with something that doesn’t actually light you up?
And finally, is this the wake up call you’ve been waiting for to change things?
With all this hyped up drama of the latest world pandemic, here are 10 things I invite you to do to override the uncertainty and use it to your advantage:
- Use any tools you have to create space between others’ fears and your own awareness
- Follow the guidelines and do wash your hands thoroughly
- If you do present with symptoms, follow your local protocol
- Check in on others and make sure they’re ok
- Have compassion for everyone – even the people who might be triggering you right now. Remember, they too, are just trying to do what they think is best for them and their loved ones, just like you.
- Be kind to one another!
- Switch your focus to all the positives that have come out of this, both for you personally AND as a collective.
- Don’t be too hard on yourself. Even though it seems scary and uncertain right now, just know that this too shall pass.
We’ve weathered many a storm as a collective, just ride this out with some love and compassion for yourself and for others.
- Utilise this time to reassess your life – what’s truly important to you?
Where can you slow things down and simplify your life, living and relationships?
- Look at the bright side – what are the things that you finally have the time and space to do now, that weren’t an option before?
Is it reconnecting with loved ones?
Is it a hobby that you have been wanting to start for ages and never getting round to it?
There is so much more that I can share here, but for now, I invite you to notice if you are being triggered with anything that I have shared.
Maybe you don’t agree or don’t relate to any of it, and that’s okay.
Just notice what is coming up for you.
Is this the time to do some inner work?
Is this the time to slow things down?
Maybe this is the time to take a look at the kind of people you are hanging out with.
Check in with the people that have your back – people who can allow you to be you and meet you exactly where you are right now, just the way you are.
Keep looking for the positives in each situation as it unfolds for you and the rest of the world.
And wash your hands!
Do your bit by being aware, and also, do it from a place of awareness, rather than fear or hysteria.
