“This great nation will endure as it has endured, will revive and prosper. So, first of all, let me assert my firm belief that…
the only thing we have to fear is fear itself.”
- FDR, first inaugural address 3/4/1933
Let’s be reasonable. A worldwide pandemic should be taken very seriously. Yet, like everything else, you prepare/do the best you can, and then let it go. We can control our actions (mostly!) and the rest is out of our hands. The fact that we live in an anxiety-ridden society doesn’t help; COVID-19 just becomes the latest thing that our anxiety can attach to.
Not having much information about this new virus doesn’t help, and the misinformation – even coming from the liar-in-chief – is damaging (his followers, believing it’s a hoax, are probably not taking simple preventative measures like hand washing). Wide availability of testing, so important to containing the outbreak, has been bungled as well in the U.S. This critical metric is anyone’s guess, but I would assume that there are many more unreported cases because of the testing fiasco.

Fortunately, for most people, the virus itself will not be life-threatening. High-risk groups, like the elderly and those with underlying health conditions, certainly need to take every precaution. We learn more each day, and with an adequate response, the epidemic has a natural bell curve. Let’s remember that the regular flu season is also still active, and other types of winter illnesses are in play.
The general panic – fear – is the thing that will cause the most damage. The economy will suffer because of lost business, but our contracted group energy field will make those effects even worse. A contraction is a normal part of any cycle – growth and contraction, activity and rest, in-breath and out-breath. An extreme or long-term contraction is not healthy for bodies, minds or economies. So get outside and notice the signs of new life this spring, a time of revival. Life persists. Focus on little, immediate pleasures –staying home, quieting the super-busy that has become our norm, and taking time to relax and enjoy our families.
An acupuncturist who graduated from my program last year had the opportunity to work on a Chinese man from Wuhan early in the epidemic. Although in his 30’s, he had underlying health conditions. My graduate was able to help him fully recover! Students of mine learn many techniques for working with flu and colds, including specific frequencies of energy that “zap” bacterial and viral infections.
Not having seen any cases myself yet, I would like to make an offer. If you have been tested positive for COVID-19, I am inviting 5 people into a mini-trial so I can see what works best energy-wise for this particular virus. Click here to schedule a complimentary consult, and I’ll be happy to do my part in finding an appropriate treatment. (All my sessions are on the phone. Energy healing works just as well at a distance as in person – my graduate who worked on the Chinese man lives and works in Colorado!)
Let’s stay positive and practical during this time of distress. And take every opportunity to take a deep breath and expand for moments during the day. We all know this is not the end of the world!
