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.
Peace, one of the noblest virtues that lives within all of us … imagine how your life would transform if you decided to live your life through the spirit of Peace … one breath, one heart-beat, one thought, one deed at a time …
My primary relationship is with myself—all others are mirrors of it.
As I learn to love myself, I automatically receive the love and appreciation
that I desire from others. If I am committed to myself and to living
my truth, I will attract others with equal commitment. My willingness
to be intimate with my own deep feelings creates the space for intimacy
with another. As I learn to love myself, I receive the love I desire from others.
I feel privileged that I have lived on this earthly plane for 55 years and I am looking forward to another 100 years or more .
As I journey forward, I reflect on my personal philosophy of believing in the power of my truth … My Authentic Self … A Self that is rooted in purpose, driven with passion and empowered to transform all things in life through imagination, vision and the courage to make it so.
To know this is a gift of a life well lived. I am blessed.
Our thoughts create our reality. If we do not like our reality, we have the power to choose different thoughts. But first, we need to understand that our reality is an intricate pattern of perceptions, beliefs, habitual thinking … Transformation begins with uprooting the source of our reality and replacing it with a truth that is in alignment with ‘what’ we are committed to experiencing.
Be not the slave of your own past – plunge into the sublime seas, dive deep, and swim far, so you shall come back with self-respect, with new power, with an advanced experience, that shall explain and overlook the old.
Stated most simply, it means to find what is true for oneself and to live it in the world.
If it is not lived, it is not real for us, and we abide in what Sartre called “bad faith,” the theologian calls “sin,” the therapist calls “neurosis,” and the existential philosopher calls “inauthentic being.”
Respectful of the rights and perspectives of others, personal authority is neither narcissistic nor imperialistic.
It is a humble acknowledgement of what wishes to come to being through us.
The visionary is the one who brings his or her voice into the world and who refuses to edit, rehearse, perform, or hide. It is the visionary who knows that the power of creativity is aligned with authenticity.
