It has been said that everything happens for a reason, and it’s true. There are no accidents, no coincidences, and no mistakes. Everything is meant to teach us and grow us in some way, and it is up to us to be open to seeing the lessons we are being taught and to make changes in our lives accordingly.
So that being said, what is the coronavirus teaching us? Why is it happening? I have gotten very clearly lately that it is all about transformation and awakening. While the illness itself has a purpose, it’s really the impact of it all that will change us and change the planet for good.
The illness itself probably needs to be addressed here in some way. I’m talking about the virus and the impact. Those who die from it. As with any big change for the world, there are often many souls that are willing to be sacrificed for the good of all. It’s part of a decision that was made before they entered into this lifetime. And yes, some do decide while here on the planet that they are going to be a part of it too. We all have many potential ‘exit points’ in our lives when as a soul, we can choose to call it quits for whatever reason. We can choose to be a part of it in a subconscious way, and make the decision to go if that’s an option for us (it may or may not be).
We’ll be Stronger
Regardless of that though, the virus itself is strengthening us as a human race. Someone I respect very much had channeled through a message from the virus, and the message said in effect that it was making us physically stronger. Able to withstand more. That it would change the physical makeup of future generations to make them more resilient.
So do understand that the virus does have a purpose. It should not be ignored though, or taken lightly. You should stay home, wash your hands, and comply with social distancing of course. But know that it has it’s purpose on our planet.
Cracking Us Open
You have probably already experienced an array of emotions, especially as an old soul. From fear, to anxiety, to sadness and even confusion. This is the cracking open of our hearts and our souls. The beginning of bigger things. This is when the changes begin.
Really, this is the shakedown. We’ve been asleep for too long. Going about our days, doing our busy things, taking things for granted, and never getting deep with ourselves or others. We needed to be shown in a bigger way that we aren’t really living. Aren’t really caring. And aren’t really loving our lives and our world as deeply as it was all meant to be loved.
As you go through the shakedown, which could last any length of time, you will probably be lost in all sorts of confusing emotions. Overwhelm is common. A dependency on the news and absorbing the shock of it all. It is a rather painful and emotionally overwhelming period of horror for many at what is transpiring. Especially if it’s directly impacting you with a job loss, separation from loved ones, someone you love getting the virus or other direct and impactful events. Not to mention those who are in the path of it who are in health care or other impacted services right now. The cracking open period may last a long time for many.
A New Normal
During this time you may also feel upset by all that is being taken away. Your day to day normal, your things, your routines, your comfortable little life and everything you valued. The whole boat has been tipped over, all your things sunk to the ocean floor, and you are left thrashing around in the water trying to figure out what to do. Your schedule is wide open now and “normal life” has gone out the window, and for many, that’s upsetting. You may never spend any quality time alone, and all you have is alone time now.
Being with yourself is a huge part of this. The Universe is forcing us to be alone. To not have our normal. To have to be with ourselves, comfort ourselves and delve a little deeper into who we are and why we are here. But that’s just the beginning….
Once you’ve moved through the initial fear and anxiety period (which will be of a different duration for everyone – some won’t ever move out of it during this event), you will begin the transformation. The transformation is when we start to go within. To love ourselves and care for ourselves through this event. And to start to see things a bit more clearly in our lives.
I personally started off the transformation period with a moment of realizing that I often attach my own happiness to other people or events, or even things in my life. That I depend on outside things to make me happy sometimes. Well, not that I depend on them, but that I attach to the outcomes essentially. When really, we can’t predict outcomes and we really shouldn’t get too attached to them. Because when we focus on something to heavily, we don’t allow things to happen in a different, and potentially even better way. I realized that I need to let go. To be more in the moment, the feelings of the moment, and the gratefulness for what my life is right now. To embrace what is, and be open to what’s to come – but not depending on it to make me happy.
I know that sounds like I’m throwing in the towel on my dreams, but I’m not. We need to have a vision of the future. Of what we want, and most especially, how we want to feel. And you can think about that and feel the feelings all you want – and you should! But then where you need to stop is in trying to figure out how to get there. Let the Universe show you the way. Allow yourself to be guided, without trying to force anything. Just follow where you are led – through your heart, your gut, signs from the Universe, and your intuition – and act when you are directed to do so. But I digress…
Realigning Your Life
So this period of transformation is when you will not only have such epiphanies about yourself, your life, your priorities, and even the world at large – but you will start to put changes into place. You will start to see that perhaps you weren’t taking the best care of yourself, and start to work at loving yourself more in taking care of your body, your mind and your soul. Your ‘issues’ and unhealed areas from your life will all start to surface so that you can address them, heal them, and move forward.
In all this lovely alone time, everything will become more apparent than ever. You will heal yourself and your past – you will have moments of clarity and epiphanies – and you will figure out where your true priorities lie. You will begin to see how to love yourself in a bigger way and to create the life that you want and deserve. And you will align with love in your life on all levels.
The Need to Help
Many will also feel called to be of service during this time. Perhaps finding a deeper connection to others and the greater good. Or even just on a personal level, helping their own community or neighbors. This time of transformation is, in essence, growing our hearts – opening them. Allowing us to serve in greater ways and feel connected to others because of it. This is a huge part of the transformation of the planet.
The fact is, when we start to care for ourselves more and love ourselves in a deeper way, we then have the capacity to help and serve in a bigger way, and that is what is happening through the transformation period. Don’t mix this up with self-sacrifice though. That is not what this is about. This cracking open is first and foremost here for you to get your life in order, find your own joy, and then to serve in a bigger way. That is how it should always be. Put your oxygen mask on before helping others.
How will this all look in the end? If we all wake up and re-prioritize our lives, what will that look like? We will all become more centered in love and compassion, and the things that make us happy. We will see what isn’t working in our lives and our world and make changes. All this alone time will most certainly change our lives for the better, as well as the world around us. Not to mention the healing the planet is doing as a whole right now.
The awakening will be long lasting. It will come about after we have transformed our lives and our planet. There will be obvious changes in our values, our priorities, our heart-centeredness and our treatment of ourselves and others.
Allow Love to Take Over
So are you saying the world is going to be perfect? No, but it’s going to be a lot better. And for those who make it to the Awakening stage in their personal lives, it is going to be amazing. You are going to be happier, and filled with more love and joy than ever before. This whole process of cracking you open, transforming you and then awakening you to the beauty of your life is an amazing opportunity here if you really grab onto it. If you can be aware through this process and embrace it – move through it – and be open to the beautiful bright light ahead in your life, you will make it there. Many of us will make it there. Enough to change this planet for the better.
I wish you love and light on this journey we are all taking. Because it’s truly an amazing opportunity. If you can be open to it, move through the emotions, embrace the epiphanies and the moments of healing, be compassionate with yourself and others, and open yourself to the potential changes ahead for you and for our planet – the sky is the limit. This is potentially the most life and world-changing event in our lifetimes. So grab ahold of it with your heart, and be part of the change. Open to the possibilities. Allow love to take over again…
