As the nation shuts down and loved ones huddle to weather what may well be weeks of coronavirus-induced isolation, it’s normal to feel sad, stressed, confused, scared, or angry during the crisis. But taken from those of us who have been coping with the threat of the coronavirus, please know this: It gets better.
I am holding in mind the best for you. I wish you safety and unshakable inner security as well as the wisdom to take care of yourself and those you care about in this uniquely challenging time.
You already have the tools within you to make it through to the other side in better shape then when you started. As you let go and look beyond the surface events, you will discover that all is well even when it does not appear that way.
I learned a long time ago from my teacher, Lester Levenson, to see the perfection where the seeming imperfection seems to be and be thankful for the opportunity to grow.
At your core you are already boundless light, peace, and joy. This is your natural state. May this become your living experience now.
Listen to Yourself During This Lockdown
I know most of you are VERY SLOW right now, so why not take the opportunity to go inside to grow? In this exact moment, let’s keep our minds and bodies healthy by staying positive.
Take time to slow down life, simplify your daily needs, and do little soul work while we give the world a chance to catch its breath. Listen to our gut and be as intentional as we can with our decisions as we go.
If you need to take a step back and focus on taking care of yourself and your family? Do that.
If you want to continue to sell and promote your services and products in a way that feels respectful at this time? Do that.
If you need to reach out for support in the face of this crisis? You can do that too.
If you feel really out of control, I invite you to book your complimentary session with me.
Having a healing coach to help you release your fear and panic in this challenging time can be really helpful to manage your coronavirus anxiety.

Remember to always think about the things that matter most, appreciate your health and your loved ones, be grateful for our own company, and let go of every unwanted emotion that shows up along the way.
This is the opportunity to take a break, connect with yourself, heal your past wounds, and reflect during this self-isolation time.
Please take care. Every day brings us closer to when normal life will return.
I will continue to provide the programs you need to support you through this stressful time by converting many of my live events to virtual events. This will allow you to get all the benefits of releasing without leaving the comfort and safety of your own home.
We’re in this together.
