Respect and Compassion

If there is one valuable aspect COVID-19 has brought to the awareness of our society it is how our thoughts and actions most certainly affect all things. The extreme of that awareness is that there will inevitably always be differing opinions and perspectives on how to handle any and all aspects of life, including but certainly not limited to our current virus situation and even the perceived severity of this global pandemic in the first place.

I believe all differing perspectives of our current upheaval are valid and demand both respect and compassion. In reality, each and every perspective is based on individual chakra octaves of awareness, life experiences, strong-rooted beliefs, and the overall health and well-being of each individual’s energetic field. Also affecting the overall severity of the virus are the collective mindsets and actions of individuals, communities, nations, and our world in general. I do know the viral energy of COVID-19 is both valid and real. It is not a conspiracy or something we can simply wish away with more positive thoughts or prayers. Instead, we must learn how to rise above the actual vibration that caused it in the first place.

The vibration that causes any upheaval while here on earth is not a punishment from upon high, fake news or something that was meant to be. Instead, it is derived from the choices, intentions, and actions of every single individual and our collective contributions each and every day, while neglecting to consider the well-being of all others. It is once again, the “I” mentality instead of the “We” accountability. This is a hard pill to swallow for those who feel we don’t have control over our lives or the overall well-being of humanity and our planet. It is much easier to continue on as is without acknowledging we are affecting everything and everyone around us. While it may take less responsibility and conscious awareness to follow that line of thinking, the higher truth of our existence demands us to realize this limited perspective is simply not true.

Those who are choosing to ignore the energy of COVID-19 and believe the simple solutions of mask wearing or social distancing are an infringement to their individual basic human rights are unfortunately selfishly neglecting the basic rights of all others around them. We all have the right to feel safe, be healthy, and enjoy the abundance this world has to offer. And yes, we do have the ability to manifest health and well-being when standing in our full soul potential, with or without a mask. However a quick reality check begs society to realize not everyone is standing in their full soul potential as of yet. Not even close. And the truth is, many of us who even understand the power we individually and collectively hold still tend to slide back and forth between intimately believing in our divine connection to all things, while slipping back again into the old comfort zones of fear, lack of control, and uncertainty.

Ignoring the well-being of those who waffle between believing in their own inner power or more importantly, those who have yet to even discover how to embody this innate birthright, is neither practical nor respectful. In fact, believing you are better than, more important than, or more advanced than someone else’s beliefs or understandings while coming from a superiority, invincibility or arrogant complex is how we got into this mess in the first place.

There is still much to learn and truths to come forward before the bulk of society learns how to effectively manage their own energy fields while fully grasping the magnitude of how lower vibrational responses such as fear, worry, and helplessness contributes to our overall co-creative reality. However, it is down right selfish and ego-centred to ignore the current individual truths and understandings without honouring where each person is at and how they interpret both the virus and their overall life experiences in general. We are all in this together. Regardless of beliefs, experiences or perceived invincibility, we are all vulnerable from time to time. It is this vulnerability that we must strive to protect, respect, and show more compassion for.

Honestly, I don’t believe there is any other way. God speed and with all my love.
