We are facing unprecedented times right now. COVID 19 is inserting itself into every corner of our lives. We are faced now with making certain decisions that we never really thought about before. Decisions based on the basics of human interaction and connection. Having to consciously think about how far we are actually standing from someone. We are having to rethink how we greet people usually with a handshake but…. now what? Life Is becoming strange and some would say almost apocalyptic in a way. These are low energetic negative thoughts and feelings about this time right now. There is positives within this too. We are all beginning to wake up a little bit and look around more, reflect more, and realize what we do have is something we should never take for granted.
With people having to stay at home and socially isolate our more innate selves are beginning to blossom. Our more creative and intuitive selves are beginning to emerge more often. We are wanting to be in touch with our families more and spend more time with some of them now. We are also and most importantly spending quality time with ourselves more. This is one of the more fascinating by-products of this pandemic. We are literally being forced by nature to be in our homes. To be in a small somewhat contained area.
As human beings especially in this modern world socialization and just being around people in public even if they are strangers is something that we superficially thrive on. Sure it can feel nice to be somewhere with a decent amount of people. The feeling of being out and about with all the other citizens of the world, but deep down we know we will have to get back to ourselves at some point to address our own individual life and step away from the distraction of being around others. The distraction to not have to engage with ourselves. This is one of the most powerful times in modern history because of this. We have been so distant from ourselves especially since the technology boom that it has become easy to question, what is real in this life? It now feels as if the circumstances we are being put into make our lives in a way seem more real. Simply because we have more time to be with ourselves. The more time we spend with ourselves life begins to have a realness to it. A visceral, emotional, analytical, psychological conscious entity that enshrouds our whole existence.
This time alone or with a minimal amount of people is going to change us. We are going to view socializing and technology different. We are going to become more wise, more caring, and more intuitive. A specific irony will hit us: Being this isolated for so long on many different levels will blossom into a more connected and more grounded new earth when we emerge from the viral cave.
Although we are in a very vulnerable and scary beginning stage of this journey it will evolve into something greater with a higher energy than we have ever seen. I am excited to see what creations and new awarenesses become present from all of this. The mere reality that we are being forced to slow down is an unbelievable blessing. We have the time to feel more, think more, change more, breathe more, walk more, and observe more. These are all parts of life that we take for granted and when busy we dismiss them and think that we don’t have time for them. Not taking that time to voluntarily insert ways to pause in life and reflect are taking us away from ourselves. What it means to be truly human. Let’s all cherish ourselves right now because we have the time, and come out of the cave illuminated to the highest vibration.
Holistic Health Care is becoming more and more sought after in society today. We are entering a time in the world where impersonal experiences are becoming less and less valued. More interpersonal experiences where you are fully engaged are being more and more demanded upon.
The one industry that has failed in recent decades as being impersonal and manufactured has been the health care industry. Sure modern westernized medicine has most definitely given humanity a lot of security. From vaccination options to modernized surgical procedures with anesthesia, modern medicine most definitely has given us a new lease on life. Because of this though preventative and holistic health care has gone by the way side. Just because we have modern medicine that can literally keep almost anyone alive doesn't mean that the holistic approach to health care should be completely ignored.
It is easy to ignore a holistic approach to health because it does take a certain level of self awareness. Building that self awareness capacity takes work. Also all around us are short term gratification options where we can immediately enter an artificial blissful state. At any moment we can entertain ourselves on our phones, while being able to order almost any kind of food. We can do this at almost any given moment. We are waking up though to the fact that this type of lifestyle if done too often is self degrading and the only way out of it is making disciplined health conscious choices.
In the future more and more people will be turning towards taking matters into their own hands when it comes to health. The fact that we are able with our own power to prevent ourselves from going to the hospital because we have become “unhealthy’ based on lifestyle choices is profound. We have ultimate control when we are able to patiently sit with ourselves and gain more awareness eventually taking action to change our lives.
The days of having to spend countless amounts of energy, time, and money for monotonous doctor visits where the only help and advice that we are getting is to take some sort of pill are going to be a thing of the past. The days of being able to manage pain with advice and assistance from your personal trainer and or massage therapist are here, only having to visit your family doctor a few times throughout the year.
Health can be complicated and when crises hits drastic measures sometimes need to be taken. Crises though can be potentially significantly reduced when an implementation of consistent preventative health measures are taken. The catch is that it takes discipline, awareness, and a willingness to be honest with ourselves.
