For quite a while, my “Spidey Sense” has been detecting something Big would be happening on a global level. I kept feeling that a crisis of some kind was looming, a worldwide event that was somehow going to usher in a massive planetary shift.
So, here it is, arriving in the form of a microscopic virus affecting the entire planet.
Since we’re all enduring this together, it seems obvious to my obsessively deep-thinking mind, that there’s more to it than meets the eye. Or, at least there could be if we let ourselves get the message.
Although it may seem like a dichotomy, apparently we needed something ginormous to shake us out of our primitive, programmed, fear-based consciousness. We needed a dramatic wake-up call to help us evolve from functioning strictly from survival concern.
But why you may ask?
So our awareness can profoundly shift and escort us into an expansive, awakened place of empowerment, finally connected to our Higher Consciousness. Together.
Although this might be your first pandemic, it’s certainly not your first rodeo of fear. You’ve probably been dwelling in fear (to some degree) your entire life. In fact, fear is probably running you subconsciously and you may not even realize it.
It’s not necessarily those blatant, dramatic fears like sky diving or riding a bucking bronco, but rather the subtle ones -- like making a commitment, being authentic, taking a stand, loving unconditionally.
Granted, as long as you’re in a physical body there will be some survival concern, but it won't be the Big Boss in charge.
Spiritual disciplines teach that we are all the same, connected as one living, breathing soul.
It’s tough to grok* that as you look around and see zillions of people who appear to be completely different.
But emphasizing the word soul makes it easier to comprehend. Every soul is the same energy -- love -- expressed in a physical way, here to bring its unique contribution to the whole. No matter what that is, even if it doesn’t appear to be loving.
Understanding life that way allows comprehension of “The Butterfly Effect”: What affects one affects all.
It also allows understanding of “The Hundredth Monkey Theory”: When one evolves, we all evolve.
Without that perspective you feel disconnected, which grants justification for wars and all forms of violence. When you absolutely know that you and I are one, how could you possibly harm someone?
You arrive embedded with that truth.
However, you rapidly get caught up in this physical reality, so it’s quickly forgotten. But that consciousness throbs within you, causing an ongoing quest to find that bigger “force” operating from behind the curtain. Eventually, as the great and powerful Wizard of Oz reminds, you look within and discover you’ve always had the power, Dorothy.
If nothing else is achieved from this pandemic, coercing the manifestation of a more spiritually based world is an invaluable gift. By helping to recognize the spiritual principles of the Universe. the planet will evolve beyond divisive dogmas.
This time could be accomplishing what myriad paths of self-empowerment trainings have tried to impart: You are responsible for your life, both individually and collectively. As a spirit, you consciously choose all that happens in your life, all the lessons and challenges. But amnesia sets in and you feel victimized.
Perhaps the virus is helping attune you to your inner world, waking you to the subtle nature of energy that’s been trying to reach you with guiding whispers (or kicks), waiting for you to be ready, blocking you from making choices that won’t support you, or allowing you to make errors that awaken your Life Purpose.
What appears to be planetary chaos is yelling loudly that it’s time to understand the manifesting power of your consciousness.
Without sounding too Pollyanna-ish, this time is a blatant reminder that all things are possible and there are endless miracles available.
But, it’s up to you to just stay on that bronco and never give up.
