Covid – a Vaccine Timetable

This spring the vaccine will be available – not quickly, but not slowly either, and the vast majority will take the vaccine over the duration of the spring months and going into summer. We will see a vast dropping of people infected and businesses will Slowly open up and build up business again, waiting for people to earn money to spend it. Jobs will increase, again, slowly over months’ time … in the spring, and like the flowers, life will start up anew as if it had been waiting for just the right timing.

************

And our prayers and meditations, like spring rains feeding the flowers, will bring nourishment and comfort for the hope and longing within the hearts and minds of many.
Yet, recovery will be slow, and we will be challenged by, still, many other problems we have on the Earth, right now. The best sources of help are the local help-lines we create for each other in our own communities and neighborhoods. Local suffering which we aren’t fully aware of, will still happen, even with the person next door, that we haven’t yet checked on.
Sadly, there will be no cooperation in D.C. leading to major help, because the elected officials represent the people, and the attitudes of the people. And on the federal level, the people of the country do not give forth cooperation, but rather give forth conflict. This conflict starts with the people and is then reflected by the actions of the elected officials. This is how it works.
But, even during these experiences, our prayers and meditations, like spring rains feeding the flowers, will bring forth nourishment and comfort for any open to receive it and share it, – for bringing hope, and fulfilling the longing for better communities, a better nation and better lives for all. May God bless our efforts for help for all people.

Q and A – Shut downs of April-May, 2020

Are you seeing another shut down like we just experienced? Thank you, in advance!  M.

Yes and No.  M, for the area you’re in, even though you don’t say what area you’re in, I see a continued need to follow all protocols in your area.  I see a continuation of high numbers of infections in the August-Sept months.  I don’t see an official shutdown, but rather many officials strongly considering it, AND rightly so, IMHO, BUT – the step I see them choosing is to strenuously enforce the guidelines.  There is a real possibility that high numbers can go into October if guidelines are not followed strenuously.

Remember, unemployment and financial difficulties will be temporary.  There is some financial help, but it will be difficult for so many people.  For other, many people, the alternative to temporary difficulties is permanent death.  If anyone feels that some deaths are okay to sacrifice for a better economy, then pick which family members you’re okay with dying of Covid-19.  Everyone who dies is a family member to many people.  It is equally likely that it will be in your family.  God help us all.

In Other Areas

In other areas of the US, and the world.  Yes, there will be some re-shutting down.  There will be conflict around shutting down.  There are many who like the adrenaline rush of gambling, and this is what the conflict is about – adrenaline.  Adrenaline is connected to fear, to aggression, to conflict, and to the “fight or flight” feeling with which we are all so familiar.

Put another way, … Adrenaline is related to living from the 3rd Chakra.  However, it is living from the 4th Chakra into which humanity is working to be lifted.  Many choose to live from the 3rd Chakra and don’t want to live from the 4th Chakra.  It is their right.

The different areas will all have a different  consciousness of people and this is what will eventually determine how the virus progresses.  The elected officials have the monumental charge of deciding what to support – opening up which will be a gamble with family members’ lives or shut down and have many unhappy, but alive, people most likely voting them out in November.

Make no mistake about this – do not ever think that things will ever be like they were before this began.  In the totality of the world, this virus has changed and will continue to change how we live our daily lives.  In the same way that 9-11 changed the whole world, the Covid-19 virus is the next thing to change the world.  It won’t be the last thing.

I advise everyone to expand one’s options and possibilities.  We tend to close our minds to new possibilities, because we mostly DON’T want to start anything new – including thinking of new ways.  We tend to like what’s worked in the past regardless of whether it has become harmful or not.  If any of us have trouble with pursuing expanding choices, then approach God to decide what is possible for Him and one’s self, and go from there.  Imagine different ways of making an income or making one’s life work out.  The old ways of the past are in the process of slowly dying out.  We are called to create new ways of living for the future.

Word of caution:  Throwing a tantrum doesn’t phase God, when it comes to whether we cooperate with God in the ongoing changes, or whether we fight it kicking and screaming – through violence, rage, judgement, criticism, insults or the like.  We’ve seen examples of the ‘kicking and screaming’ on TV and in the news.   We are called to be examples of how to cooperate with God’s efforts to help us.

Finally,

Obviously, every location will have some differences all around in facing the virus and it’s path.  But, the imagination, ingenuity and creativity of the people of each area will determine a great deal about how to go about reopening.  The old ways have become harmful and now, just how fatal they can be is “in our face.”

*******

I see the 2nd – 3rd week of June being the best time for most places to open up.  And I see, in general, in many specific locations. the 2nd wave happening late July to a possible 2nd week of October.

 

Tweets for April 1- May 9, 2020

Joe Biden won’t be a “fast, hit the ground running” president, (except with a very few things). He will be slow, but his slowness has a spiritual purpose: “When hiking, always go the speed of the slowest member, so no one is left behind.” Do you understand? Sprt’ly, it’s “ALL”.

Remember, the place to look for help & to offer help is local communities. We connect w/ neighbors, friends, family to offer and receive real help. Don’t look to the government to “save” us from this. In the arena of our local community, we will thrive, help and benefit.
We are the water in the flasks. Our responding to the circumstances of life is the need. We pour ourselves forth responding with heart and consciousness to the need. We become then, the better wine stepping into the transformed life of loving kindness and compassion to others.
Spiritual evolution, social evolution doesn’t come from the events happening. They come from our responding to events happening. The evolution is within us. We can respond to the event “pouring ourselves forth” through change or we can “dinosaur” ourselves with no changing.

A Short 2020 Update

With the virus changing things – our lives – I’ll give a momentary 2020 update for the circumstances. For the US, in general, the people will continue to struggle against staying home. I’m still seeing mid-May to Mid-June averaging out to be when society opens back up slightly. This will not be a time of “controlling the Covid-19 virus”.

If society were to stay in place, we would have been able to avoid a resurgence of the virus, but this won’t happen. There will be an upswing again in the numbers. I’m seeing them go up in the 2nd half of July, then more in August. This means that the election in November will still have the air of the Virus about it.

If you’re still playing in the stock market, stop. The ups and downs will blindside people. Losses will contribute to the economic bad times. You cannot juggle knives when you’re blindfolded, and you won’t get specific enough information from psychics to save you from financial losses. The storm waves are too high.  Sit on what you have for the long term – at least 5-6 years.

This is a long process for the whole world. There are areas in the world that will still see devastating numbers in the fall.

At the same time, with a Democratic win for the presidency in November, the Republican Senate leaders will still announce they will obstruct everything they can. This bodes badly for helping the American people.  Even as individual people, they have the right to choose arguing and fighting as their mode of living – just like you, and/or me, if we wanted.

This is one reason why I have said this many times – don’t look to the Federal government for help during this time. Help for individuals and communities will come from local sources. And being a part of community efforts will be what helps people.

Helpful steps to take:
THE MIND
1. Express creativity in whatever is necessary for you to carry out. It is creative expression which will help to enliven people. Your own mind will have new ways to be creative if you slow down your “racing”.
2. Use your hands, use your mind, be active – all in creative ways.
3. To get a sense of how to be creative, sit quietly, resting the mind, eyes closed for a few minutes – allowing your breathing to slow down, and allowing your adrenaline to slow down. This process will allow creative ideas to bubble up. It is adrenaline activated in the bloodstream which also causes one to grind their teeth and be on edge.
4. Sometimes it takes priming the pump for new ways and new ideas to come forth. Don’t censor yourself. There are no bad ideas, just ones that need tweaking.  If we can think it, we can do it.
5. Challenge your own mind. There are plenty of ways – games are just one suggestion.
6. Read. To yourself or to others. For children – read “The Princess Bride” book. Read to them as they’re laying down with their eyes closed – the associated images in their minds will be magnified. Don’t believe me? Have someone read to you as an experiment with you lying down and having your eyes closed.

THE BODY:
1. Drink water. Pay attention – to help you drink more water. Or tea. Dehydration can occur without knowing it, and this can mess up your brain function in subtle ways. Drinking more water will help your body in ways you’re not even thinking of right now. It helps with washing your physical body’s systems of which some may be contributing to your current stress hormonally – both male and female.
2. Let go of using the whip on yourself. If you don’t have all the answers on how to handle this time and these experiences, then realize that only you were thinking that you should have all the answers – you can change your mind and give yourself more time. This will help your adrenals to calm down.
3. The world won’t come to a standstill if you take a nap. You can get back on the world, when you wake up. You’re going to be tired.  Sometimes, you won’t know it and you won’t know why.
4. Yoga, exercise, riding bicycles, walking, gardening, building something or making something with your hands, sitting in a rocking chair, and other physical activities.
5. Try an activity which you’ve heard others try, but you’ve never tried before. Try it only once just to see what it’s like.
6. Focus your attention on “what to do today” and only today.
7. There are also 10,000 other items that can be listed in this category, as well.

THE EMOTIONS:
1. Reach out via whichever method is available to anyone you feel comfortable with contacting. Remember, they need to have contact with someone, too. Even if they’re across country.  They are feeling scared, antsy, and other feelings, as well.
2. When still working at a job, remember, by your example of following the guidelines set in place, others will be helped to feel more comfortable with following the guidelines.
3. Don’t criticize people for following guidelines if you don’t agree. They care about and want their families and friends to be safe, and these ways offer the most hope to make them safe.  People don’t care who’s right.  People care more about saving their loved ones lives.
4. Be brave, but also be wise. Trust God, and tie your camel. No one is harmed by following guidelines. No one is helped by condemning the guidelines. There’s an old Texas saying, “Trying to demonstrate that we’re smarter than everyone else by condemning others efforts, always has the opposite effect.”  (Hmm.  It could be a new Texas saying.)
5. Ask questions of other people in your life, and of yourself — about life. It’s time to check in with others on what they feel, too. You will discover something new about them. Find the book, “1000 Questions for Couples”.  Check out the questions available.
6. Someone once said, “There is no excuse for being bored.” Answer one of these questions – “What do you like most about being bored?” or “What do you like most about enjoying yourself?”
7. There are 20,000 other items that could be listed in this category.

THE SPIRITUAL PATH:
1. Talk to God inside your own mind and heart. Be honest. If you’re afraid, say so. He/She is not mean.
2. Pray a short prayer, when you think to do so. Praying doesn’t need lots of words when only 4 will do – “God, please help us.”
3. Sit down for 5 minutes, just to rest. You’ll know when to get back up.
4. Meditate for the benefits it brings. Meditate in order to sit in silence with a very kind “Friend”.
5. Bless people as you go through your day. “Bless you.” can be said to anyone who is helpful.
6. There are 30,000 other items that could also be listed in this category.

 

God bless you.
