Staying Alive in Corona times

A similar reality, & yet not the Same for all of us.

Who would have even dared to think of a World-Wide lock down, its almost like a Hollywood set, though we are still waiting for the grand entry of our caped Hero.

I remember educating parents in my workshops, about how our language becomes the inner voice of our children & thus the need to choose our language & infuse it with affirmative, suggestive power words.

The first few days of Corona , all I heard were the narratives from the news sources. Pandemic, challenge, Economy failing us, Governments failing us and all such strong language, that just aced the ante on the stress.

That’s when I began to look for guidance, look for answers, look for direction, & maybe the Crystal globe that would give me a peek into the future & answer all my questions.

I sat down that night, PJ’s & music and went on a deep search to find the answers. One thing I knew for sure , was that the situation was similar across the globe , yet not the same. It had a different message for everyone. A mom, a dad, a child, a doctor, a cleaner, a delivery guy, an aging parent, everyone was exposed to the ‘same’ reality, but it meant a world of difference to each of us.

So all set to deep dive, into the depths of the sub conscious mind, I readied myself to hear my sorceress, what was my lesson, what was my message, what was my role in this time, what was I expected to contribute at this time.

Years ago, when I sat for a final panel round as interviewed for a promotion at work , I was asked who was my Role Model & why. At that stage many of my competitors either said it was their Mums/Dads , or Mother Theresa, Oprah or a Ms Universe, Nelson Mandela & honestly I didn’t really have anyone in my mind. I drew inspiration from so many different people, I couldn’t just pick one.

I played safe & said my dad, & backed that up with his stories of triumph over struggles.

Today though, I know my inspiration is within me, it is my soul, the inner intelligence, the higher self that keeps speaking to me & unfolding one line at a time, connecting one dot at a time,& leading me into the brightest place in my life.

I have Corona to thank, as all the uncertainty led me to a clear path, a manifested route & a voice that now speaks so load & clear

Because every situation has a different meaning, a special lesson for the billions we are, so maybe similar , yet not the same.

Until the next time, Love & light to all of you .
