Living with Fear

The Coronavirus pandemic has caused emotional distress for many people, and I am no exception. For over three months, I have hunkered down in my home in fear of catching and dying from this virus. Except to buy groceries and going for walks, I have not been out of my home.

However, the world is reopening including my country, and my own state, and I have been permitted to reopen my Reiki practice. Even with this reopening, I have been reluctant to go outside unless it’s necessary. I even have lamented about our country reopening too soon.

Although my fears may be real, it nevertheless is preventing me from moving forward in my life. I am paralyzed by this fear, and have bunkered myself in my home with can goods, paper goods, frozen foods for feelings of safety and security.

As I become aware that my fears of this virus has kept me indoors and venturing out infrequently, I am confronted by my fears head on. I watch myself waiting for nothing to happen as a vaccine may still be 18 months away. The world cannot continue to remain closed as we need food, consumer goods, power, electricity, etc., and businesses still must continue to operate.

Today, I prepared for my venture outside tomorrow to run errands and shopping, while donning my face mask, of course. I will buy my first cup of Starbuck beverage in over three months. It is time to get back on the horse that threw humanity for a big loop. This real fear must be confronted, since this way of life will become our new normal!

  1. It is an interesting journey indeed dear lady. Usually it is just our own individual fears we face but entangled with such a widespread fear of the virus it has asked us all to look deeper and it brings it to the surface and those other fearful energies are triggering much where before it was so intermittent. We don’t have that calmer energy from others around us from friends and family because all are ‘infected’ with it by some degree.
    I think our world is being taught a lesson, a big one.
    Enjoy your outing, I hope there is a smile awaiting you, a little halo in the dark to set you free 😀 ❤️ 🙏🏽 🦋

    1. It is true that the fear of this virus has triggered unresolved deep rooted fears from my past. When I realized this, it was much easier to confront. As always, thank you for your insights and understanding. Sending peace and light!
