Apologies if you know this content already, but if this post helps even a few people, then it’s worth posting.
We are all concerned with what the future holds, but we can’t let our fear of tomorrow steal our future.
Here are some thoughts to help you:
Fear and Faith
As I said earlier, it’s natural to be fearful at this time.
But we can also have faith. Faith that after we get through winter comes summer.
Faith that we will get through this and faith that there is light at the end of the tunnel.
It is not convincing yourself of some false notion that everything’s fine and dandy.
The goal is to approach difficulties from a different perspective and not to block them out.
Appreciation has the effect of softening us.
It eases our restless and turbulent minds by connecting us with ordinary things, great and small, that are wonderful.
And that we might otherwise take for granted.
If you are in business, see if you can keep selling. This will probably mean going online.
That means to sort out the financing that you will need to get you through this lockdown.
Stephen Fry, everyone’s favourite surrogate uncle appeared on The Andrew Marr Show to offer us tips on self-isolation in lockdown.
Because he is Stephen Fry, he spoke of reading books that speak to his soul.
Of reacquainting himself with calligraphy on YouTube.
He said, “Even cooking the smallest thing now, I prep it, I put little pots, and I do the garlic in one little pot, you know, just like a TV chef! It’s preposterous, but it just slows my life down and stops me getting too anxious and too nervous.”
We must make look after our mental health a priority.
You need to seek them out and reach out to them in this lockdown.
Rather than wait for them to ask for help, you must reach out to them. This means we reach people sooner and deal with them more compassionately.
This is my opportunity to reach out to you. If you’re struggling, but you don’t know what to say, trust me, I get it. Let’s talk.
The lockdown provides an opportunity to focus on learning – your learning.
Remember those books you bought ages ago when you decided they were a ‘must-read‘? Now is a great time to find them, dust them down and get to it.
Learning another language does fantastic things to fire up brain development. So maybe not Esperanto like Stephen Fry but you could try French or Spanish or even learn to code.
Input Shapes Your Output
I don’t think most of us grasp quite how much, and sometimes how subtly, our inputs determine who we become.
You are what you input.
You have the choice to focus on doom and gloom, or you focus on the positive, the possibilities and the opportunities.
I’m amazed by the incredible positivity of people on my Facebook group.
Eliminate Junk And Clutter
Holding on to the past can sometimes keep you looking back in the past, and can definitely stop you making forward manifesting progress.
Cleanliness and freeing up space releases energy which can then be recycled back into the Cosmos.
Make Mornings Count
We keep going on about the power of your mornings, and for good reason.
Morning power walks are an excellent way to get your juices and productivity flowing.
If you live in a quiet neighbourhood, you can step outside so long as it’s safe and you’re allowed to do so.
This whole process will activate more of the powers of the subconscious mind and bring your creative energies to the surface.
This too will pass, but while we’re waiting, we have choices.
It will be a defining time for everyone.
