This daily practice, some call it meditation while walking, puts me instantly into a better frame of mind. This heartfelt gratefulness catapults me to a higher frequency and triggers loving thoughts naturally.
However, even though Gratefulness is a steady companion from the moment I wake up, it has been tough for a while now. For over a year we all have been seeing so many sufferings and negative reports. We wonder about people not being careful, not wearing a mask – you know the stories. Trust me, I don’t want to be the judge and the jury having enough to deal with on my own plate.
And then things changed at the beginning of 2021 - the first week of my Covid-19 infection. I started waking up in the middle of the night. 1 am, 2am, disoriented, brain fog, not being able to focus and every painful and frightening symptom - you, who have experienced at least a moderate case of Covid-19 - will understand. At least I can breather I told myself as I was waiting for daylight, it seemed to make the ghosts of fear go away faster, or at least lessen the anxiety.
I don’t want to recall or dwell on the experience over the next 8 weeks. But I do want to share one thought: During the worst of nights, I would remember one thing that I’ve learned in my years of metaphysical studies.
God is Good, all is Good, the Universe has my back. I repeated the mantra for hours: ‘Peace, be still, and know that all is Good’ until at times I could doze off again at least for a short period of time.
I know, that even while sleeping, the subconscious is working, digesting what I have thought and felt, and systematizing my day’s experiences and impressions. It registers the mood encountered while drifting off. I know, going to sleep with a grateful, loving heart will let me rest a lot better than a worried, fearful, and disturbed mind. Keeping the Faith reinforced my knowing that the next day will be better (again, at least I could breathe!), and I will be closer to my goal of being well again and joyful even during these difficult times.
With Love, ULRIKE
