Whatever happens around you, don’t take it personally…
Nothing other people do is because of you. It is because of themselves. All people live in their own dream, in their own mind; they are in a completely different world from the one we live in.
When we take something personally, we make the assumption that they know what is in our world, and we try to impose our world on their world.
Even when a situation seems so personal, even if others insult you directly, it has nothing to do with you. What they say, what they do, and the opinions they give are according to the agreements they have in their own minds…
Taking things personally makes you easy prey for these predators, the black magicians. They can hook you easily with one little opinion and feed you whatever poison they want, and because you take it personally, you eat it up….
But if you do not take it personally, you are immune in the middle of hell. Immunity in the middle of hell is the gift of this agreement.
Everything is going to be alright. Intuitively, we know this. We also know that we are strong, powerful and resilient.
Globally, we know that the pandemic will flatten, the dust will settle and we will return to normal, a slightly altered normal but normal nevertheless.
Let us remember…
That cool heads prevail, to discern the facts from the drama. To be informed but to stop news binging. To talk ourselves down from our anxiety by disproving our fear based inner dialogue with actual facts.
To breath deeply, to reduce our anxiety quickly and naturally.
To journal about our thoughts and feelings with pen and paper.
Review our options.
To think creatively.
Act responsibly, follow the rules laid out by our government and medical officials.
Focus our attention on daily random acts of kindness, ours and others.
Fear is normal, leverage it, get proactive, creative and productive.
Clean, organize and purge your home, car, office, electronic files ….
Start that creative project you’ve been thinking about.
Learn something new, read watch a documentary or e-learning …
Go for walks in the park. Play with your children. Jog. Meditate. Workout …
Reach out with a helping hand to the vulnerable and frail in your community.
Mend those fences, forgive and make peace.
Watch or listen to comedy! Dance! Listen to nature sounds, meditative music and your favourite bands, musicians.
This is our time to govern our thoughts and feelings, open our heart and reach out to others with a helping hand and kindness.
If there was ever a time to have an immersive self-empowerment experience it’s now. Consciously, let us embody our authentic power and move forward with our innate creative power.
You are not alone, we are in this crisis together …

Self-love is a divine illumination that liberates our hearts and minds to be an authentic force for the goodness of ourselves and others. It is the secret sauce for a beautiful life lived well.
Self-love is the transformative alchemy we are all searching for to fix our messy lives, to cast out the darkness from our hearts, to right our wrongs, to breakthrough the barriers of our misguided creations, to reimagine our destiny and to recommit ourselves to the infinite wisdom of our collective oneness – we are in this game together.
Shame is an inner-focused, painful emotion that encompasses the entire sense of self. It distorts a person’s self image to the point that they cannot see nor relate to their deeply buried authentic selves.
Shame is an IRRATIONAL feeling of worthlessness, humiliation and self loathing that leads to an overall feeling of paralysis that profoundly sabotages a person’s life.
Internalized shame ruins lives, it stops individuals from experiencing professional success and it derails significant relationships.
With the support of a professional therapist or transformational life coach, shame can be dismantled and a person’s self-esteem and life rebuilt. 🦋
Being authentic is an ongoing process – our false sense of self recalibrating to our inherent worth. It is not a panacea for perfection rather it is our commitment to feel that we are enough, complete and whole. 🦋
The difference between an authentic life and a life by default is the willingness to overcome the beguiling pull of resistance, to rest in the security of what is known, to sustain the comfortable, easy and safe status quo. 🦋
