The front line

Doctors, nurses, and all hospital staff, working in the front line have been taking a battering in this war against corona-virus. In Italy some sixty doctors have been lost while battling against this invisible enemy.

Mental impact on hospital staff

Working under these unprecedented conditions, seeing patients fight for their lives, will have an impact on health careers mental health. In the aftermath of this world pandemic, nursing those with mental health issues (the next virus) will flood psychiatric treatment worldwide.

Meditation and yoga

We should be looking for a way back to basics. Meditation and yoga costs next to nothing but can offer a path to finding inner harmony. The hospital staff, staggering out of the battlefields, should be offered alternative ways to help in dealing with their mental stresses.

Corona virus brings Man to his knees

Why can a virus change our way of life?  

coronavirus-woman-mask

Man is a fast-changing animal. While his senses are weakening, he is becoming ever dependent on computer run technology. He is losing his individuality and his self-awareness.   But however advanced we are, Nature can strike at any moment.  We must learn to simply exist, rather than strive.

The yogis’ way of life

buddhism-041826112017

Why can a virus stop our way of living on the turn of a sixpence? Because the way we are living is wrapped-up in worldly foil. We are finding it difficult to live without worldly pleasures. The devoted yogi self-isolates in his quest to reconnect to the higher-self – spirit. We could be using this time of self-isolation to get in touch with our true self.

When the world returns to normality

Perhaps when the virus spread has run its course, we will have tasted a different way of life. For many people, Nature had been acting ruthlessly and taken loved ones.  Surely we must be looking at this pandemic as a wake-up call, She has, is, and always will be, the ruler over our planet and its peoples.

 

The Inner Child

The child sees adventure, say in wearing a yellow mac’ and red galoshes, splashing through muddy puddles, and nipping in & out of the raindrops she dodges. She eyes with wonder a sidling slug, and picks up a twisting earthworm, and  giggles & wriggles with the greatest delight, whist the mean old adults shrink & squirm.

She admires the dripping waving leaves, of a wind-blown weeping willow, touches the damp, soft grassy ground, forlorn, like the saddest tear-soaked pillow. The child’s world so cool and new, fresh as a yellow-buttoned daisy, she one day climbs the loftiest tree, the next, she’s feeling lazy.  Luminous skies aglow with patterns, and the air with the taste of morning dew, and the small inquisitive awakening child, has but a trillion-million things to do.

(Chorus) The inner-child sits in your soul, wishing to come out to play. To build a snowman, pick red mushrooms, oh how she hopes, against all hope, for that exciting day.

But the magical child world, oh how it clouds over grey, as we steadfastly age, not that we know of it, day by day.  Oh to be the child again, to appreciate life’s sacred scent of youth, the gifts from Him, His Nature, how we once shouted about it from the highest roof.

(Chorus) The inner-child sits in your soul, wishing to come out to play. To build a snowman, pick red mushrooms, oh how she hopes, against all hope, for that exciting day.

 

Help to protect yourself from coronavirus 

The imaginary bubble

pizap.com15838725479133

We have a vibrating magnetic field of energy surrounding the physical body. Ancient yogis put this force field to good use. When a yogi found himself in a negative company, he visualized himself standing in an impenetrable white bubble; an invisible barrier that deflects dark energy. The ethereal bubble can be put to good use in countless ways.

In this exercise, taken from ‘Use you brain, we can use our natural defense mechanism to ward off the coronavirus.

Retire to your ashram, your private place which can be either indoors or outdoors.  Check that you have enough room to stretch your arms in all directions. Stand up straight. Part your legs comfortably, lift your shoulders up, gently pull them back, and relax; the new alignment pleasantly lifts the rib-cage and liberates the lungs. Enjoy the pleasant release of pressure from the rib-cage area for a few moments, breathing gently like a baby. When you are ready to begin this exercise raise your arms high above your head while placing the palms of your hands together so that you are making a long triangle. Imagine that you are now going to draw a huge circle around you with your index fingers acting as magic markers and that this will be a bubble that protects against all germs. While still holding the triangle shape with your raised arms, point your index fingers at the ready; without bending the arms lower them until the palms meet in the middle area of your body. Imagine that the magic markers continue all the way to the floor so that you’re standing in a bubble. Remain standing for a few moments in your large white bubble.

Try this exercise at home until you can feel as though you are standing in the bubble. When you next go out shopping or visiting, before you leave home create the impenetrable bubble which can protect you from germs. Strongly visualize the bubble and you will put your natural force field on red alert. Work with the bubble routine as often as you can. Soon you will be able to form the impenetrable with just a thought.

The ancient yogis used reflexology, acupuncture, herbal remedies, mind over matter, deep breathing exercises, hatha yoga, and meditation centuries before it came to the west. Learn to deploy the impenetrable bubble to help to save yourself from coronavirus.
