Even though it's tempting to go into panic mode as the threat of contracting Covid-19 becomes a real possibility, this is a time to remain calm at the center of the storm. As humanity worldwide hits rock bottom, changes that have been long overdue, are now finally being considered.
As a simple example: For years, our ER's have been flooded with lifestyle "emergencies" - on an average day approx. 90% of people showing up at an ER are there to find a way to deal with symptoms related to lifestyle - and only 10% are there for the reason an ER is designed for: The sudden onset of a medical condition manifesting itself by acute symptoms of sufficient severity (including severe pain) such that the absence of immediate medical attention could reasonably be expected to result in: placing the patient's health in serious jeopardy, serious impairment to bodily functions, or serious dysfunction of any bodily organ or part.
The same 90% who normally seek relief from lifestyle consequences at the ER or just want a prescription filled by their doctors office, are the ones who may be hit hardest by Covid-19. Most of them have no idea what causes the breakdown of their body's functions, why they suffer from diabetes, high blood pressure, shortness of breath, experience panic attacks or overall poor health. Many have heard that it's important to eat healthy, breathe, move their bodies and heal their psyches, but don't know how or feel it's too hard to get beyond addiction. They're reassured as they fill the prescriptions that are handed out to cover up the symptoms of disease and continue to go about their lives without making a single change.
I always point out to my clients that they have a choice: Either they choose instant gratification, which allows them to indulge in anything they desire, but may result in a bitter end, OR, they make sacrifices along the way, which allows them to only indulge occasionally, but increases their chance of having a long happy life. Neither choice is right or wrong, but there are consequences on both sides of this coin. You decide.
It takes dedication, perseverance and education to know what creates good health, inside and out. It's an investment only a small percentage of our population has made, until now. It appears that the same 90% of our population that crowds the emergency rooms with lifestyle emergencies, are also the ones who seem to be okay with how our food is grown and processed, or that dangerous drugs are used to cover up symptoms caused by physical and emotional suffering/pain. They're the ones who most likely will experience a more severe reaction to Covid-19.
Yes, it's true: We have to hit rock bottom before we're willing to disrupt our old habits. For us to wake up and look for the real reason the sky seems to be falling, our systems have to literally fall apart and the suffering has to cut so deep it leaves a screaming wound. Only when there is a grave need, will we start to pay attention.
Over the weekend, I talked to my sister who lives in Switzerland.
I told her how excited I was with what was happening in regards to Covid-19 and she was incredulous and taken aback. She said: "It sounds evil to be excited about the worldwide chaos and suffering, to rejoice in our elder and immune compromised population to have to die prematurely or to be hooked up to ventilators as our hospitals are bursting at the seams. With everyone having to hunker down, many out of work and the economic future at stake, really, you're excited about all this?"
What I'm excited about is the emerging potential of the larger percentage of our population to finally wake up. To emerge from this tragedy with 20/20 vision of what ignorance has done to our world. To start and make choices that support their own health and restores their overall well being. To only buy food that has been grown and processed with love, to educate themselves on what supports and restores their health, to educate themselves to heal their mental, emotional and spiritual suffering, to step into their power and build a legacy they're happy to look back on.
I've been waiting for this moment in time for two decades. I was ready for the shift to happen in 2000 and have since polished my knowledge and sharpened the tools to educate those who desire to take their power back, transform their suffering and pain and create a world truly worth living in. The time is now! If you're as excited about this as I am CLICK HERE to get started today!
Just like Covid-19 has taken over gradually and then suddenly, humanity is waking up from a deep unconscious state, first gradually and now suddenly. We always have a choice: We can continue to enjoy instant gratification, and suffer a bitter end, or, educate which sacrifices we need to make, to have a greater possibility of a happy life that has a long lasting positive effect on our environment and our relationships. Neither choice is right or wrong, but there are consequences on both sides of this coin. You decide.
As you're hunkered down, waiting for Covid-19 to take it's toll on your life and your community, spend some time in contemplation of what the root cause of this multi-faceted worldwide wake-up call really is, and if we just go on afterwards and pretend that everything is okay, or, if it's time to educate, create new structures, heal our Selves and with this, create a sweeping change across the globe that will bring Mother Earth and everyone on it, back to balance. Which one will you choose?
