COVID has taught us many things about ourselves and our lives, what is important to us and what is not.
During the past year, we were asked to shelter in place, stay at home, restrict our movement, wear masks, and social distance. Many things we used to do were closed.
COVID also brought us opportunities. Your perspective may be different, and that is the idea. How we thinkabout our lives is how our life manifests. From an intuitive perspective, I saw shelter in place as a clear message for us to stop and take care of ourselves. This was an urgent message to the entire world. We cannot ignore dramatic messages. Clearly, taking care of our wellness in body, mind, and spirit is important to have the life we desire.
We stopped. We separated from our routine and focused on taking care of ourselves, our well-being, and staying safe. It was a message that told us to come back to and heal ourselves.
When we are busy, we are not conscious of what is happening to us and our lives. COVID made us stop. We became more aware and began to wonder why we were doing one thing or another. We started to consider new choices “when things go back to normal.” Of course, things cannot go back.
Changing Our Relationships
We were asked to stay at home. This helped us realize who and what we value. It also revealed relationships and activities that did not support us. We will not go back to those places or those relationships.
We were told to wear masks and social distance. From an intuitive perspective, the message is clear. Protect our space, become aware of who and what impacts our personal space in positive and not so positive ways. At some point, we will no longer be asked to wear masks and social distancing. We hope tohave gained a greater awareness of our personal space. That awareness will help us make choices that protect and support us and others.
Make New Choices
A lot has been closed to us, or access limited. We began to realize things we did out of habit or routine versus what we want in our lives. This is a great time to meditate or reflect on what is important and what we value. We do not want to go back to the way things were because, in hindsight, we did not want it all. We were stuck in routines and habits without realizing whether it served our life.
If we take the time to decide what we want, then we can begin to imagine a future aligned with the life we desire. Everything is possible. If you can imagine it, it is manifesting. Imagine the life you want as we emerge from a loud and clear message to change. What choices will we make that better align with who we are at our core? This is an opportunity not to go back to the way things used to be. We have free will and the opportunity to make new choices.
