With the threat of COVID-19 at the forefront, the world around us is transforming. The familiar landscapes we once knew seem to be shifting on almost a daily basis. Although the restrictions on physical distance and geographical movement continue to limit our outer world, it is we who control our inner world.
And how can we do that? By choosing our response.
It is our response to unforeseen actions of others and of the universe which ultimately determine our state of mind and subsequently our state of being well. We can choose to feel limited, unhappy, depressed, or fearful. Consistency of this state of mind will inevitably weaken our immune systems which need our support now, more than ever.
Instead, we can choose to feel grateful for the pause this time in human history is giving us. In essence, you can choose to see it as an opportunity to take a journey of self. And this journey is limited only by your imagination.
I call this “Lockdown Expansion.”
In our previously rushed and harried world, I have found myself more than once in an energy of “there’s just not enough time.” Now, with physical distancing requirements, restricted geographical movement, and isolation mandates, there has appeared a window of opportunity.
I’m being of assistance to others where and how I can as well as working to develop new skills and to expand my knowledge base in multiple areas.
In reflecting upon your own Lockdown Expansion journey, it ultimately becomes a question of what will bring you to your best and highest both now, and when this threat has passed.
What will serve your body, mind, spirit and deepest authenticity?
