How the Coronavirus Pandemic Can Heal The World

This week’s blog post is inspired by an article I wrote for The Elephant Journal on March 14,2020. Click here to view the article.

The Coronavirus pandemic has taken the world by surprise. As the gravity of the situation deepens and the landscape changes by the hour, the world is spellbound as we watch this precarious situation unfold and brace ourselves for the next development.

Fear and uncertainty have gripped the world and we are feeling a depth of emotion at unprecedented levels.


Making Sense of This Pandemic

What is the purpose behind this? Below is a quotation from my article on The Elephant Journal:

“When we view the situation through spiritual lenses, we quickly realize that it is studded with soul lessons and harbors significant transformative power. The Coronavirus pandemic is calling for the world to come together and in a big way. While on the surface our lives may be riddled with fear and uncertainty, underneath it all is a carefully-curated plan with a very pointed agenda: to wake up humanity.”

No one remains untouched by this global pandemic. Fear and uncertainty permeates many aspects of our lives. From the challenges of procuring basic household necessities that are, under normal circumstances, readily available, to watching our personal savings erode; we all feel the effects of the crisis to varying degrees.

Here is another expert:

“Life is complicated, especially when we face new challenging situations brought on by the Coronavirus pandemic. But remember, we are here to love and to grow. That’s it. Life most certainly isn’t easy, but it can be simplified when we anchor back and refocus on why we are on this Earth. Challenging life experiences that develop our character, enhance our richness, bolster our substance, and expand our depth are what give our lives meaning.”


The World Needs Healing

In my book SOAR, which released on March 17, the chapter called This World begins with “This world needs healing and it needs you.” Global-scale healing can only occur if we commit to healing ourselves on an individual level first. It prompts people to do their soul work and gives examples for how we can be healers for one another. Our true power is realized when we transmute our pain. As we heal ourselves, we play a role in healing the world. Connecting with others and sharing your gifts and your healing touch is unequivocally the most powerful thing you can do every day.

How can a global pandemic, riddled with fear and uncertainty, serve as a springboard to fuel our personal healing, growth, and transformation? Here are some powerful questions that you can ask yourself to start your journey into your soul:

  • How do I demonstrate love for myself and others?
  • How do I embody a mindset of gratitude?
  • Is this situation causing me to reconsider any choices I have made for myself?
  • How has this experience enhanced my appreciation of life?
  • What life experiences have had the greatest impact on me?
  • What am I most fearful of?
  • With whom do I have deep connections?
  • Do I have any regrets?
  • What matters to me most?
  • What are my values and beliefs?
  • Am I spending my time on initiatives that have purpose and meaning?
  • What is my purpose on this Earth?
  • How do I want to be remembered?
  • How am I contributing to humanity?


Transform Your Life

Below is an excerpt from SOAR:

“By making the resolution to transform your own life, you are effectively changing the world. If you’re wondering if what you do on an individual level matters, it does. If you’re wondering if your actions can actually have a broadscale impact, they can. Everything we do has a ripple effect and even the smallest, seemingly insignificant actions work their way through collective consciousness and eventually reverberate back to you. Together we can prompt huge shifts in collective consciousness. We have to start somewhere, and that somewhere is right where you are, right now. Your paradigm shift is underway.”

As always, I’m praying for the health and safety of you and your loved ones. If you’d like extra help with the healing process, please take a look at this Healing Prayer I wrote for you.
