What do we do when the world is in panic mode? What feelings does the coronovirus, Corvid-19 pandemic bring up in us?
Being a hypersensitive, I can feel the fear and panic around me. It is out of proportion to what is actually going on. The death rate is less than 2% and they are moslly people who are oer 80 and already sick or dying. Around the world more people are dying from flus, other illnesses like cancer, or accidents. So why the panic?
From a Shamanic Indignenous Perspective, this whole story can be seen in a few different ways.
For one, if you look at that history of humanity... there have been many plagues in the past and many died back then. Do we really think that we wouldn't have to live some major event? My parents lived through two world wars and a major depression.
People don't consider that we carry past life experiences from one life to the next. We live the same stories again and again, until we do something to change or shift them. In the past, our Indigenous Ancestors were deliberately given diseased blankets that basically wiped out many tribes. We can change this story now by not repeating things, not spreading the illness of body and mind. So with this pandemic, we can see it as an opportunity to change and heal something, depending on how it impacts us and our story.
Second... it is not a bad thing to stop traveling worldwide. The ozone is already healing from the lack of airplanes in the sky.
Third... it is a good time to stay close to home and to our families and communities, to be more present to each other. Go for walks, slow down. Be present to your surroundings.
Fourth... shop locally and consider community gardening as a way to reduce our impact on the planet.
I could go on, but it is best to look at solutions and the good we can do at times like these. Not to buy into the fear and not to spread the panic madness. What are we teaching our children by this social distancing and not touching ourselves or each other? What good can come out of it in the long run?
Humans forget that they are not the only species on the planet. For sure the human population will decrease - and from the planet perspective - that is a good thing! Look at how much damage we have done, how many animals and trees have or are going extinct because of humans!
Humanity has become the cancer upon the body of Mother Earth and nature is just trying to restore balance! It is natural for any organism to want to protect itself. But honestly, humans go way out of their way to react to something that is a natural occurance. We get colds and flus all the time, and many die from them. It is just because it is a new strain that had not yet been isolated. And the media is having a hayday with it. But now it has and the antidote will come out and everything will settle down. But thing will be different. Everyone will keep their distance from other, handshaking will not be acceptable anymore. Hugs and kisses and sex will be far less exciting and considered more dangerous, and so on...
The world today is germaphobic. We will become so sterile that nothing will survive. We already are heading that way. We have overdosed on anitbiotics, compromising our immune systems. Germs and viruses are a part of nature. Death is part of life, you are born, you live and you die. So let's stop trying to live forever and stop fearing illness and death. Let's bring things back into balance and consider the planet in all that we do.
And let's be ready to die no matter what age or where we live or what we do. No one lives forever. I find it incredible that nature created a virus that targets the old, the sick and weak. In the past, in Native tribes... if anyone was born deformed or weak, they would be left to die or even killed. It sounds cruel by today's standards, but they knew that the child would suffer and be a threat to the tribe, especially if they were nomadic. They had to ensure the survival of the tribe, keep them and their descendents healthy and strong. Today we cater to our weaknesses.
It is time for humanity to take responsibility for the mess we've created on Mother Earth. And find better solutions to the problems we have created.
