  1. Hi Trini! I hope you are safe…and well! This is such a crazy time…it made me happy to find your beautiful posts in my inbox πŸ™‚
    I hope that you are handling this time well…learning more about yourself and teaching others with your kind heart. Sending lots of love and light ❀

    • You know, in the beginning I was so anxious about all this, I still am, but I am surprised to see how we humans can adjust to almost anything. I mean, how are we not going insane with anxiety and despair for a world that seems to be falling apart? But we don’t. It’s almost like we do the opposite, we try to smile more, be friendlier, enjoy ourselves more and appreciate each other more. And I definitely think it’s the right approach. But I could never imagine myself smiling in a time when thousands of people are dying of a deadly highly contagious virus every day! But I do. Not as much as I used to, but … I think it’s just too much to take in in a way. We know that if we succumb to anxiety we will fall apart and lose hope. So we carry on, trying to stay positive and hold on to hope. I suspect that’s what people did during the Second World War as well. I mean, they had to live and try to create some kind of normalcy. I just hope we don’t have to wait five year to combat this virus! So yes, I am well, but I do think it’s important to acknowledge how awful this all is and not just pretend it away with a smile, even though I am all for smiling! 😊😊😊. So yes, I am upset about the fact that they are not successful in finding a cure. I am anxious that this virus will remain in the world even after the main pandemic is over, lurking in the corner, making the world a bit more dangerous. I do feel sad for all those who have fallen critically ill with the disease. And I am … disappointed in the merciless fact that when nature punishes us for our abuse and neglect of it it is always the weak who suffer and the rich and the strong, who are often the main offenders, survive. The survival of the fittest is such a brutal fact of life and it steals away from the love and purity of Mother Earth. It is a tough reality for me to accept. I think it is important to be honest about these feelings and not just pretend them away in an attempt to stay positive. I think it is possible to accept hard facts, feel saddened by them and use that sadness to try to change things for the better. Sending you too, dear Lorrie, lots of love and beautiful shining light! πŸ’–πŸŒžπŸ’–πŸŒžπŸ’–

      • Hi Trini…thanks for baring your soul in your response here. There is much that is wrong with this pandemic and so much to feel sadness about. The thing that breaks my heart is the isolation…people who are sick and dying are all alone…and loves ones are left all alone to grieve. It feels…sadistic!
        As an empath, I can get completely lost in the pain. And now that I have learned new strategies for healing myself I have to limit the amount of time I spend in the pain of it all. It’s like there has to be enough of the other emotions to balance the pain…
        And I have learned that what we focus our attention on is strengthened. So I am not ignoring the absolutely devastating pain and the unknown of how we move forward…I’m just trying to radiate an energy of love and light to counterbalance the darkness.
        Stay well, my friend. Sweet Blessings of live and light to you πŸ’œ

      • May we all stay in that love and light, and pass it on to those who need it most, even if it is just in spirit πŸ’–πŸ’–πŸ’–πŸ™πŸ»
