The Coronavirus crisis is an invitation to..
A crisis always brings out either the best, or the worst in us.
We either come more strongly from a place of ego (fear/survival state of consciousness), or our hearts (love/compassionate spirit) open up even more to those around us.
Here’s a few of my thoughts about what the Coronavirus crisis can be an invitation to look at within ourselves:
- What kind of leader are you?
Are you going to look after and help your employees and other people that you’re somehow connected to but that are not your family and close friends,
.. or are you going to bail on them and just think of yourself and on saving yourself and your business (and money)?
I believe that the time we’re in now will show us who the true leaders in this world are.
Things are definitely shifting as these things becomes apparent and clear.
There will be a whole new group of leaders emerging from this crisis (in whatever profession they may be) and they will be of a vastly different kind than the kind we have had up until now.
- What kind of friend, neighbor, family member, or partner/spouse are you?
Are you supportive when it comes to the people close to/around you?
How are you showing that support, specifically? That’s an invitation that Life is asking us to look into.
Love is not just a word, it’s an action, something we do and show.
Life is inviting us to love more – both ourselves and others.
How can you be there more for the people in your life? Where can you offer to help out?
- Some aspects of our life has now been put on pause.
What other aspects are there in your life that is now calling for your attention and focus?
Is there something you have neglected or not paid enough attention to before?
The pause can serve as an invitation to look into those things by asking ourselves:
“Where have I not been present (enough) in my life?”
- What have you taken for granted in your life up until this crisis?
Your health? Your family and friends health?
This could be an invitation to start thinking of how to best take care of yourself and your loved ones.
It’s not a time to only think of what is best for ‘me’ and ‘mine’ and how to best survive this by holding back, taking, or withholding things from others and grasping on to what is ‘ours’.
This is a time to give, to help, and to support others in the best possible ways.
We need to do what we can to help relieve anxiety and suffering and not add pressure and stress to the lives of others.
We’re all in this together, everybody is going to somehow be affected by this crisis, some more than others of course,
but if we handle this crisis right (as it’s also an opportunity), we will grow closer together, be more connected to ourselves, and thus become much better people as humanity after all this is over.
Something new is being born, and it’s going to be something that is better for everyone, both in our individual lives, and also for all humanity.
And please don’t forget yourself in all this!
It’s not just about giving to others, but it’s equally important to give to and take really good care of yourself too, and for many this can be to simply allow themselves more relaxation and finding inner peace in the midst of this storm.
Take good care of yourself, and others, and stay safe! 💜
