In turbulent times like this, having a spiritual awakening can help you keep your heart and mind peaceful, tranquil and full of love.
Retreating into the Inner Sanctuary (human heart) for spiritual connection and protection …whilst the Outer Sanctuary heals.
During this time of turbulence, uncertainty in the unknown – a deepening of connection to the divine through the sacred heart and assimilating a positive perspective will restore the soul’s faith in the power of love to transform.
I offer you, from my heart to yours – heart awakened perspective – as together we navigate through this storm of awakening.
Perspective #1 – Mother Nature is healing
With the prevention methods – lockdown, etc. – nature is healing.
There are fewer cars, fewer planes, less manufacturing, less economic activity that generally excludes nature from the bottom line.
When Nature is always in harmony and connection with all of life.
She is utilizing this time, to catch up on a long-awaited slumber.
The skies in China are clear (air pollution a record low rates).
Venice’s canals have become crystal clear.
Italy has dolphins coming closer and closer; Japan deers roaming in the streets; Monkeys in Thailand.
It’s a blessing to sometimes see, what it looks like on the other side.
To see the clear skies, nature flourishing without human hindrance.
This alone can bring ignite a sense of joy, trust, faith in times of challenge and chaos.
These are amazing signs with the absence of human pollution.
And asking the question – how magical the world can be, flourishing life – if we became more conscious globally on the preservation of our beloved planet.
The fires this year all around the world is a forecast, a message that she is dying, and can no longer sustain human ignorance.
We are apart of the greater wave of life, not separated, and thus we must harmonize our footprint – reconnect to the whole.
Perspective #2 – The systems do not work
Maybe a perfect time to also reflect on the systems we have subscribed to as a global community is not sustainable.
Systems based upon separation and competition will always benefit a few at the expense of the whole.
And how we know, is that in times of chaos, they are unable to adapt.
We must find a new system, that supports and invites the collective.
Collaboration and inclusiveness over separation and competition.
A system just like nature, based on synergy, the intelligence of the whole organization is greater than anyone of its parts.
To see humanity as a part of a greater whole.
With an absolute focus on the environment, as to how much longer can she survive this human ignorance?
Perspective #3 – In Chaos we play
The organic nature of humanity for play, connection, compassion, and community.
In challenging times, there are always sparks of joy, play, acts of selfless service and connection.
From free Live-streamed concerts to Quarantined Dance / Sing-alongs / Bingo, mass applauses for health workers, sizeable donations – of food and resources all over the globe.
These moments of chaos, ignite the true human spirit in many.
To have compassion for one another, to connect, to feel beyond the individual ego in separation.
To love and support thy neighbors.
To find joy in the midst of Chaos.
More joy, compassion, innocence, play.
These acts of connection will begin a wildfire of enlivened hearts.
As in the heart, we transcend the unconscious fears of the mind.

Perspective #4 – Buck the trend
Use this time to buck the trend.
Rewrite your life. Do things differently.
You now have the time, that you never had before.
Utilize this opportunity to educate yourself – online courses.
Be creative, be awe-inspired.
Sing, dance, play – invest time in what truly makes you happy.
Think back to your childhood.
Invest this time in developing new hobbies or creative expressions that are in deeper resonance with you.
It does not just have to be an education and can be lifestyle choices.
What a perfect time for a fast? To heal and restore the body.
