Lessons from lockdown
Our months of self-isolation and social distancing are starting to wind down. The light at the end of the lockdown tunnel is in sight!
What though, have we learnt from this most unusual experience? What are the lessons and blessings to take away? Perhaps, before we launch ourselves back into the manic lives of pre-lockdown, we could pause a moment and consider whether the future could be better if we keep some of our lockdown lessons.
I am very aware that for many people, this has been a tragic time. Loved ones have died from this virus. My heart goes out to all those who have lost their near and dear ones.
Perhaps the biggest lesson for us all from this is a poignant reminder of what truly matters. What is truly important in our lives. I'll give you a clue... it is not things!
It is relationships, connections, love, nature, friendship, community, compassion, the health of the planet and the beings that live on it.
For me, it has been such a joy to see the natural world thrive during this time. As humans have taken a step back from our relentless polluting and consuming, the birds, animals, insects, and plant-life have come to life. I feel like the natural world is bursting forth with a renewed joy as the air, soils and waters get a breather from human pollutants. Going forward, I hope that we all take things a little slower, that we drive our cars less and walk more, that we spend more time with loved ones, and that we take time to appreciate the beauty of the natural world, and that we remember we are part of the natural world!
Here are some of the blessings and learnings from my lockdown:
1. Distant healing works wonders
My energy healing is just as effective - if not more effective - done online. This has been a revelation! And will change the way I work going forward. Thanks to online healing, I can reach so many more people and animals. I've been working on horses in Texas, France, and Geneva... all via Skype! And it's worked beautifully. Amazing.
2. The flora and fauna have thrived!
The joyful birdsong says it all. The natural world has been able to take much needed sigh of relief as we human polluters have retreated for a while, leaving the air cleaner.
3. We can all live happily without 'things'
One of the big lessons is that we can live so much more simply than we have been. We do not need so many 'things'. These 'things' are not what bring us joy. Connection with others is what matters.
4. We can survive without junk food and takeaways
We all had to eat at home and the world didn't stop turning.
5. Huge problems can be solved quickly if the will is there
Homelessness. Thousands of people were living on the streets of Britain. Government after government has made out this was a problem too big to fix. Along comes coronavirus and every homeless person is taken off the streets within a week.
There's nothing we cannot do if we pull together. I am excited and hopeful about the new kinder and cleaner world we will create post-Corona.
Lots of love, Zoë xx
