It’s Sunday. All is quiet in my home. I’m sitting here in my family room all cuddled up with a blanket on my legs relaxing with our kitties nearby. I love the mornings when there’s that sense of peace and tranquility in our little world. I’m grateful that we are healthy and safe at home with plenty of food choices. I pray that my post finds you and your families healthy and happy as well.
Under this stress of Covid-19 uncertainty, we need to find the pockets of mindfulness and of gratitude in everyday living. I am reminded, yet again, of the gift that this is for all of us. While you may see the situation differently (because it is extraordinary and scary), there are blessings to be found in what WE as a world are enduring. Fear and anxiety have ramped up severely as well as discontent with how things are being handled which I understand. But it’s also a time to realize that we can only control ourselves and not circumstances which are beyond our control. On a restful Sunday, this leads me to increasing my faith (and washing my hands!).
The blessings of being quarantined in home with our families expands the opportunity to bond with our loved ones, to go within to learn about ourselves and to re-evaluate what we feel is important in our lives.
I have enjoyed seeing is the return to simple gratitude and connections. The choice to help others in a ‘we are all in this together’ mentality instead of fighting one another and making it all about ourselves and not about the world in which we live and its inhabitants is increasing. Amen!
The returning to a WE ARE ONE is emerging again and gaining a stronghold in some circles of light. I feel that we are here by choice to help each other rise up again, to increase gratitude, love, faith and kindness in our daily living even through we are to remain at home. With technology connecting us in different ways, we can merge together virtually from our sofas and bond with others around the globe.
Instead of allowing fear to win, we choose love. We can increase our health mentally, physically, and emotionally by working on ourselves during this time. There are not a lot of distractions when one is not able to leave the home. We now have time for all the nesting required that has gotten delayed by being able to run errands. While some may find it boring to be at home, I do not. I can find plenty to do to fill my time as can you. Simple pleasures of family meals and talking with friends helps. Reading and connecting with others in healing ways helps us all. Sharing intuitive knowledge and being mindful helps us all to rise. We are all beacons of light when we allow our souls to shine.
Getting back to basics of relating with everyday people and those in our families is key. Talking honestly, listening with compassion and being our true selves will grow when we choose that path. It is a choice to view this confinement as a time of growth for our world. A time to look within and to see ourselves and our souls as the loving, shining heartlights that we are innately.
So on this quiet Sunday, allow me to pray for us all. Join me if you will in a quiet prayer of your own for the coming together in love of our world. Perhaps when you wash your hands, instead of singing, you might offer gratitude and prayer for yourself and others.
Together we help each other to rise. Shine your heartlights dear friends. Let our love shine in this darkness to heal one another and to remember who is important. Enjoy The Presents of Presence!
