I wanted to update you and let you know that I will be using telephone or video conferencing for all future appointments until things settle down. I want to encourage you not to forgo our time together. In times of acute stress and isolation, it’s even more important than ever to connect with a supportive person who can help you to look within, find your center, and remain balanced no matter what is happening on the outside.
Personally, I choose to see what’s happening not as a constriction, but as an opportunity to grow - to grow deeper relationships with others and myself; to challenge the ways I’ve been thinking small, living in fear and separateness from others already! I see this as a time where I’m being called to live differently and NOT seek to return to the status quo, which is what got us here in the first place.
Instead, I’m choosing to listen even more closely to what my heart is telling me and honoring those messages instead of pushing them away. I’m taking this as an opportunity to be more vulnerable and honest, to listen more deeply to others without judgment, to think about what others and the planet need from me, and what actions, however small, I can take. In other words, I am waking up and, hopefully, we all are.
Imagine if we all collectively decided that we don’t want to return to business as usual and decided instead to treat our fellow humans equally. Imagine if we insisted that our governments and businesses and families do the same? Imagine what new systems we might create in response to these times. Remember that the Renaissance followed the Dark Ages! Each one of us may be the emerging artists, scientists, healthcare providers, educators, business leaders, citizens that the world has been waiting for!
I hope this is the start of a new way of being human. I hope that our systems of inequality will die off so that more people, who live in fear every day - long before there was a “pandemic” - can know some measure of security and peace.
Please join me in this intention. Please use me as a resource for your spiritual and emotional care during this time of great change. Text the number below to schedule your appointment (or just to say hi!) and we will continue our sessions as usual, but from the comfort of your home! Also, if you know of anyone who might need support during this time, please pass my name to them. I am, as always, offering free consultations.
Together we will look for, and find, the silver lining in this forced slowing down of our lives. You are in my thoughts and prayers.
Stay well and keep your hopes up. 🙏🏼☮️
