Fear Has Always Had a Big Following
We are certainly living in an interesting time. Unusual and somewhat devastating, state after state closing down bars, restaurants, and movie theaters. Shoppers wearing masks, gloves, and buying up as many hand sanitizers as they can find.
It has been a few months since we first heard about the outbreak in China and the next thing we know this SARS-CoV-2 aka Corona Virus has taken over the world.
Fear has always had a big following and anger has been on the number one bestseller list forever. Where do we go from here?
Every evening a news report of 30 minutes gives us more information about the virus and more and more school closers and the SARS-CoV-2 spread around the world.
It appears our daily plans, meetings, and events are canceled or postponed. Life as we know it has been turned upside down.

The Faithful Ones
For generations, our daily practice has been a part of a bigger picture. We create sacred spaces to shift the vibration, we meditate, we lift spirits, we invoke holy guardians, and we call on all of our helpers within the cosmos to guide us through the twist and turns of life.
For all of us, who pray, affirm life, join our energies with like-minded people, or commune with plants, trees, stones, other forms of nature, we are being called to raise the energy frequency around the earth.
If we are Energy Healers, Reiki Masters, Light Workers, or Peace Keepers, it is up to us to shift the paradigm of fear. It is up to us to be the light in the darkness and to encourage the masses to tilt the scale.
You Are Being Called
Take a walk in nature, hug the trees, speak your healing words on the wind, smudge every day, play your drums, rattle, chant, light your candles, and blow your Love Tuners.
With each fluctuation of encouraging energy, we can generate a higher frequency of love, good health, and peace ignites the golden grid around our Earth Mother.

The Voice of Experience
Coming from where I come from, knowing what I know about life, and given this situation, I am asking myself, “what can I do in these circumstances to help others?”
Every day, I rely on nature, the Sun, Moon, trees, wind, water, stones, plants, and so on.
Here are a few things that I know, for sure.
- Mindfulness, awareness, and intentions
Giving attention to my thoughts, recognizing how my point of view affects me during the day. Letting fearful ruminations pass by and replacing them with encouraging and optimistic concepts. Speaking or writing affirmations that support my well-being.
Being aware of my surroundings and what other people are saying or doing.
I get to decide whether I agree or disagree with their belief system. This exercise puts me in control of my own thoughts and beliefs.
Writing down my intentions early in the day or at the beginning of a meeting allows me to follow my personal road map and to stay on target with my focus. Speaking an intention before I meet with someone also creates a sacred space for the meeting.
Daily intentions take time and thought. In my extended daily practice, I create a list of affirmational objectives that often unlock my old patterned thinking and give me a way to unveil or uncover concepts that no longer serve me or others. It is like waving a flag, clearing the air, or releasing troublesome ideas. Then there is a doorway of light or an expanded purpose that could be more beneficial to me and others. I have also found it helpful to ask friends what their intention of the day could be.
- Smudging, ritual, and lighting a candle
Smudging is a term used among many cultures that refer to smoke from burning sage, cedar, palo santo, sweetgrass, and many other dried plants. The act of smudging is a ceremony within itself, of clearing the space, preparing oneself and the area for the day, a circle, a meeting, for prayer and meditation.
Ritual is a routine, a sacred practice of listening, or a set of steps that lead me into deeper communion with my spiritual tradition. Daily rituals can be
- Sitting quietly in nature
- Walking in silence
- Yoga or Qi Gong
- Lighting a Candle
- Reiki Invocation
- Hug Trees
When I use a candle during the day, I am reminded of my own internal flame, the driving force of my life. All of life is sacred, holy. Each living thing on our earth has an inner light. The ritual of lighting a candle and sitting with that flame for a few minutes each day or several times a day brings me into the circle of understanding that a higher cosmic consciousness connects me to the core of life. These precious moments with the burning flame give me peace, comfort, and equanimity.
We are in this together and our grandchildren’s future depends on the resonance of love we share today.
