In these uncertain times it is vital to continue cultivating a strong foundation. What do I mean by a strong foundation? Well, when the chips are down, what are the beliefs, knowledge, understanding and practices in your life that truly support you? What "holds you up" no matter what? That is your foundation.
Are you seeing a few places your foundation that could be shored up and made stronger? I know that I certainly am! And I'm willing to bet so are most of us right now. But this is a really good thing - this is an amazing opportunity for improvement in our lives! Sometimes only in times of upheaval can we see the weak spots and opportunities for expansion and growth.
One of the most stable pieces of my foundation is meditation. I dim the lights, close the door, curl up in a cozy blanket in my favorite chair, close my eyes and turn my attention inwards... and I always find the Light within the darkness.
I have been personally practicing meditation for 10+ years at this point and I recommend this practice to reduce stress, rebalance and center. Beginning each day from a place of relaxation and a peaceful mindset is highly beneficial - whether it is a typical day, or perhaps even more so during times of uncertainty like what's happening right now in our world.
Now... this is a dark time we are living through. So many people have been affected by the Coronavirus, some have made it through and some have passed on. My heart goes out to every single person who's lost someone and those who we have lost. To the healthcare workers and essential services employees helping those who are suffering and keeping things moving. Also to those who have lost their jobs, who are separated from family and friends and those of us feeling alone. I feel your pain and I have had moments of struggle of my own within these past few months of dealing with a new reality.
Yet times are never so dark that we cannot find the light, love and joy - even in these uncomfortable or even distressing circumstances. Darkness can never drive out light, yet light always drives out darkness. It is so important right now to find, appreciate and even celebrate the many reasons we have to be grateful. We can also find comfort and hope in the wonder, goodness and magick we have yet to create and experience in our lives!
This opportunity allows us as individuals to * pause * and reflect, refocus and redirect those aspects of our lives and ourselves which don't quite line up with our authentic self - that part of us which calls us forward to our greatness. And I cannot think of a more ripe opportunity to do so as humanity as a whole * pauses * and reflects, refocuses and redirects our perspective to hopefully one of greater unity as a human family. It remains to be seen, as it will rest on the decisions of each of us as individuals to add to this collective shift.
