A World in Crisis
We are waking up daily to a new world. An emerging crisis is upon us like none of us have seen in our lifetimes. Most of us are confused, disoriented and wondering what will come next. There is no clear end in sight and, in some ways, it appears the worst is yet to come.
One thing we can count on, is that the human spirit is strong. We will get through this. It is important to not slip into excessive fear. Every crisis is an opportunity to rise to our greatest potential.
When I meet a new client, I hold the vision and belief that they are able to achieve the goals they desire and overcome the challenges in their life. This global crisis is an opportunity to reach the highest potential in yourself, to master your fear and to stay focused on your strength and resilience.
That does not mean it is time for a denial of feelings. It is Ok to feel grief, fear, anger, even despair and hopelessness. Allow whatever you are feeling to come up and out. Honor the feelings, but do not let them get the better of you. You are bigger and stronger than that. You may not know it, but you are.
This crisis is calling for the best in all of us to wake up. We all have dormant superpowers that have been waiting to be awakened. Now is the time to stay conscious and focused on a vision of healing and positive outcome for both yourself and humanity as a whole.
Perhaps this falling apart is leading to something better. Things often crumble into utter chaos before they find a new order of harmony and healing.
We are now needing to self-quarantine and stop most activities. This can be a time for rest and self-reflection. It can be a time for a deeper look at how you are living and what is important to you.
Are you honoring your deepest desires, values and living in integrity? Or are you living in fear and dishonoring your inner knowing and truth?
No doubt there be will be great loss, suffering and hardship ahead for many of us. The pervasive divisiveness we have been experiencing must end. If we want to pull through this as best as possible, we now need to focus on supporting one another. Maybe it took this much to bring out the best in us.
Let yourself be inspired by the creativity of the human spirit and the unique expressions of community that are arising.
How about the Italians singing to one another on their apartment balconies, the Iranian doctors singing and dancing on their work break and the Spaniards doing group workouts on their rooftops?
What is your unique expression that is wanting to be birthed? How may this be a catalyst to not waste more time? You were born for this time of great turmoil and transition on planet earth or you would not be here.
How do you want your life to look on the other side of this crisis? This time will pass. Who do you want to be when things have calmed down? Do not slip into excessive fear. You may miss the opportunity of a lifetime to find out who you are and what you are made of.
All crisis is an opportunity for greater self-awareness. You get to chose. Will it be fear or something better? Go for the best you can find in yourself. Don’t let yourself be defeated. I know you can do it. I’m holding that vision for you.
