How to Navigate Coronavirus
The coronavirus triggers our inner child wounds and long-suppressed fears. Most people go automatically into their basic coping mechanisms. For some, it’s blaming others, feeling like a victim, panic, anxiety, or feeling helpless and avoiding the whole situation by watching TV.
For empaths, these times are even more sensitive as they feel the pressure in the air. Many empaths feel overwhelmed and out of center because they can feel the energy of panic.
Below, I’m offering you 3 steps on how to navigate the coronavirus (and any other triggering situation).
1. Create Space
Dealing with your fear should be your #1 priority. But first, you have to create a sacred and safe space to deal with your emotions and thoughts.
There is much going on in media right now and it’s easy to be swept away. But when you’re continually plugged into the external reality, your fear will grow because you also pick up on the collective fear-based energy.
Thus for at least a couple of minutes, unplug from the outside rumor, and allow yourself to have your own experience.
Close your eyes, take a few deep breaths in and just be. For a moment, allow yourself to sit with every thought, emotion, and fear that is raising.
Return to your center and ask yourself:
What is true for me in this current situation?
How do I wish to experience it?
Are there some lessons for me that I can now finally learn?
Have I been escaping from my true self?
What is good about this situation that I’m not realizing now?
How could I turn this situation into my strength?
How can I use this situation to upgrade myself and my life?
2. Fear and New Way
You create the space to deal with your fears. The fears that you’re feeling right now may seem like a mere by-product of the current situation with the coronavirus, but it’s not true.
You’ve always had these fears hidden in the subconscious mind. The coronavirus is just a trigger, and it opened your Pandora Box. Later, there will be another trigger. Thus it’s better to face everything uncomfortable now.
Some of your fears are lighter and you can move through them on your own. While with other fears, it’s good to ask for help. You’re the one who feels whether you can shift a belief or fear alone or you’d benefit from someone guiding you through it. Follow your inner guidance. In each case, now is the time to do some inner healing work.
To face your fear, first, unplug and connect with yourself as suggested in step one. Then you take a piece of paper or a journal and write down everything that is happening in your mind right now. Don’t hold back your emotions, but let them all flow onto paper. You can also journal on the below questions.
Here is a couple of questions to guide you:
What is happening within me now?
Which emotions am I trying to suppress?
What are my biggest fears?
How do I feel about my fears?
What would help me to feel better?
Is there anything I can do to feel empowered and stable?
How can I transmute my fears into the light?
The second set of emotions emerging now is guiding you to the new version of you. Take time to review your life and see if it’s aligned with your highest path.
Something new wants to be born in your life now. Give it space. Let it guide you.
Don’t go back to your old reality after the coronavirus is over. Use this time to upgrade yourself and your life.
Your higher self is guiding you to make a jump and upgrade. Listen carefully to those nagging inner feelings and unspoken questions.
Questions to guide you:
Am I living the life I want?
Do I feel deeply fulfilled and grateful every day? If not, what else is possible in my life?
Does my job satisfy me?
Am I truthful in my relationships?
Do I live in alignment with my inner truth? (Here is a video on living aligned with your truth).
What is rising within me?
Is there something I know I should be acting on, but I don’t? If so, what am I waiting for? What is holding me back?
How could I bring more joy into my daily life?
Not everything can be our way. The mind is afraid to lose control, and it forces us to hold onto things that feel familiar, but they may not serve us.
In our times, we’re going to witness many changes. Many ups and downs as the collective energy needs healing. Things that made us feel safe in our comfort zone will be working less and less.
When our attention and energy is fully captivated by the repetitious cycles, we foolishly believe that things are in our control. But that has never been the case.
The mind wants to grasp things and not let room for something even greater. On the other hand, the soul – our higher consciousness – finds the most aligned way through any situation. The soul doesn’t assume or hope, it knows.
In the future, we’ll all need to lean into our intuitive side more than ever. Because the map of the old world starts to lead us astray.
Whatever higher power you believe, it’s time to rekindle your relationship with it. It’s time to allow yourself to be led because you don’t have to carry all the burdens on your shoulders alone.
