We are in unprecedented times . So challenging to wake feeling optimistic at present with the coronavirus impacting on and dominating every person on the planets every action and behaviour. Massive unemployment, financial black holes , isolation and unimaginable stress and distress as we all grapple with getting on board with new realities.
Life is in normal times an up and down affair. Problems are part of our human existence. And the usual gamut is still there though not getting much attention. Babies are being born, children need educating, bills need paying , various folk have special needs which need attending to, and the dying need sending off. We non of us have a lot of power in the world at the present time except in doing all we can to manage and minimise the spread of the virus.
However it’s important we do what we can to manage our internal worlds as well and there we do have some power. Being steady in spirit is not a small thing at present and managing our catastrophising monkey minds crucial. Definitely when beset by life’s difficulties our mind is not always our friend . Self compassion and compassion for others can be in short supply as we are essentially put in survival mode.
Perhaps I can support you in that. Phone Skype Face Time and at present face to face options are also available.
