Both shared with me that the number of patients has dramatically increased in the past few months. Both also agreed that not only the pandemic, but also the uncertainty of our political environment, the threat of eminent violence in our back yards, and the anxiety and domestic tension this creates in the homes of our families have contributed to the immense increase in health problems. We all have our plates full, so to speak.
What can be done about it? How can we relieve the fear and worry, not knowing what’s going to happen tomorrow?
Firstly, I am a true believer that all is good, and everything will turn out OK. Easier said than done – I know, I’ve been struggling with this myself! But I have been holding on to the thought that the Universe, the Almighty, knows best and that all of these horrendous occurrences are lessons. Lessons we must learn in order to change our behavior toward each other and the planet.
This enormous health crisis cannot be eradicated with conventional medicine, home remedies, quick fixes, organic juices, lean food, diets, and all the other advertised cures we see on TV day in and day out. It takes science and scientists, devoted professionals, and the participation of all of us, including a change of attitude. The attitude that we are all One and that it takes all of our compassion for each other to heal our immediate surroundings and the Nation.
Remember, our physical and emotional aches and pains are the reflection of our painful, unhealthy, negative, fearful thinking. The body expresses our state of mind, be it calm and peaceful or full of tension and distress. The body is the faithful servant of our minds, mirroring forth the feelings we give importance to and the constant worrying about our future.
It’s not an easy task, but since we, by ourselves, cannot control the world and other people’s actions, let us make sure our own current thoughts are full of love and appreciation, and free of worry and fear (at least to some degree – one day at a time), so we don’t have to experience the same agony and discomforts tomorrow. We can control only our own reactions and behaviors – but it’s a start.
I do believe that real health and peace of mind comes from healthy, peaceful, wholesome thoughts, because harmony is the underlying principle of life. I‘m keeping the Faith!
With Love, ULRIKE
