We are living through extraordinary times. You may be feeling like you could use some advice right now, beyond how to properly sanitize your doorknobs and surfaces.
We are all in this together, after all.
This Week’s Collective Internal Energy:
King Of Wands—You are your own leader.
Regardless of political affiliations and whether or not your local government is enforcing strict policies in an attempt to flatten the curve of Covid-19, you are your own leader now.
If you live somewhere where local officials are not taking this seriously, the advice is to assume the leadership you want or need internally. Conversely, if you live in a city or state where leadership is proving effective in stemming the spread of the virus, don’t ease up in terms of vigilance.
You own your response. If you, or someone you love, are sickened, you must find it within yourself not to fall apart. We must accept that we can’t control external circumstances during this pandemic. But with a steady hand on your own wheel, YOU can dictate how you respond to this crisis internally.
And this will affect outcomes for you and perhaps the world on a collective level. Be intentional about how you spend your time. Should you obsessively read the news and feel drained or powerless, or can you accept that you are living in extraordinary times and be selective about how much you take in and what you focus on? Be intentional about who you spend time with, too (as much as this is possible, given the circumstances).
Transmute fear or panic into something that will enable growth instead. After all, great works of art have been made, and previously unthinkable innovations unearthed, during times of duress in the past.
