FACING THE FEAR QUOTIENT
Fear is very high right now. Fear tends to feed itself until it can get out of control. We’re dealing with a massive disruption of our normal routine which puts fear right in front of us. There are runs on food, water, and supplies that decimate store shelves. Our movement is restricted for the higher good: we can’t go out, can’t go to work in many cases, can’t go to school, can’t fly unless we have to, can’t see a movie or live show or sports event. Can’t, can’t, can’t. Everything is canceled.
Trump and his cronies are not making us feel any better with their denying and delaying tactics. Our federal government does not have our backs. The news is nothing but reports on the numbers of infected and dead. We’re not used to this kind of restriction, lack of leadership, and constant negativity. We don’t feel we have any control of what’s going on.
Despite all that, this is not an apocalypse.
We will not be brought to extreme survival mode. It can seem like it only because most of us have never been down so far that we would know how to recognize it. We will continue to have electricity, water, gas, and sanitation (and food delivery if we want it). While store shelves get emptied they will continue to be stocked up. Prescriptions will still be available as well as medical help for things other than Covid19 (although our medical community is taxed already so please have patience). This cycle of disease will not last so long that it kills the majority of our population and puts us into that survival extremity that we expect with a pending apocalypse. But that’s where many minds are going. It’s not the End Of The World, even though it can feel like it. There’s a different reason for that feeling other than Covid19.
We’ve had a glut of films, television shows, comics, graphic novels and novels about the end of the world in the last twenty years, building to be part of popular culture in the last ten thanks to the success of The Walking Dead. They have been a creative release for the fear that everyone has been experiencing on an innate, vibrational level about the loss of the old world. It’s not just about the loss of Piscean Age mentality, but of the structure that has been in place for thousands of years. The Aquarian Age doesn’t just bring a swing out of male dominated, left-hemisphere thinking, it moves us into awareness and equality—into our conscious Humanity—that we haven’t experienced since we’ve been on this planet. It’s our biggest shift! The apocalypse scenario in entertainment helped us do group fear-release about all the changes, but now it’s presenting differently.
Having disaster as entertainment is fun. But it’s “out there”, not happening to us, which is why we can enjoy it. It’s become part of our fantasy reality so we don’t even consider it affects how we think. Now we’ve got a real threat in front of us and, unfortunately, because disaster has been fun in that way, this pandemic is in our group consciousness as The Worst Possible Scenario! Please be aware of this, aware of how dire things are, but, very specifically, how dire things are not.
This threat disrupts and changes our rhythms but is also giving us a chance to build new rhythms, ones that solve problems that have been so “acceptedly normal” we haven’t paid attention to them. This year was always going to give us an opportunity to rebuild our world. Even though it might not seem like it, this is a gentle way of restructuring. We don’t have to lose four-fifths of the population or our utilities or deal with lack of food and water. We don’t have to have our government crumble so we’re forced to rebuild from scratch. We are at a point that is represented by The Tower card in the Tarot: while the Tower is falling apart from the top down, what we don’t see is that inside the Tower is rebuilding itself from the bottom up. We are doing that right now. With every negative lesson presented to us (thank you, President Trump) that we overcome, we are given major realizations and are changing our future. We can overreact to how this is happening but we don’t have to. It’s a choice.
Granted, the news doesn’t seem to help. It covers this pandemic as if it is the End Of The World because a lot of news has become sensationalist over the years to get ratings. Even news programs that aren’t trying to be sensationalist can seem to be so now because the reporting is very dire. Many are saying the news is feeding the fear. But there is another purpose for it. Everybody needs to be afraid so others who are ignoring it and saying it’s a hoax will be forced to deal with it and get those in charge to do something. Fear gets everyone’s attention. So if news is considered responsible for fear-mongering, it’s also what’s making people aware enough, and afraid enough, to get our government working and paying attention. I’m talking Trump and his cronies, who are still way behind where they need to be to really help solve this problem.
Testing and the numbers of infected are important only for the government to be able to get a better handle on things…that’s what they base their reality on. They need delineated proof to function. But if we feel sick, since there is no known treatment or cure, we don’t really need to know if it’s Covid19 or the common cold or the flu. Treat it as it is! Have common courtesy and don’t put yourself in a position to infect others. Getting the test and knowing one way or the other isn’t going to change how we have to deal with it.
As I’ve mentioned before, the best way of dealing with this—including the suggested washing of hands, not touching your face, staying away from crowds, etc.—is to build our immune system. Be aggressive with leafy greens while avoiding wheat, dairy, and sugar. Take a lot of Vitamin C (or whatever immunity-building supplement works best for you). Dr. Linus Pauling, two-time Nobel Prize winner, did a lot of work with vitamins and cancer patients and came up with the response to colds and flu: take 2,000 mg of Vitamin C every hour for about 24-36 hours when symptoms strike (until stools get loose). We don’t need to be so extreme if we aren’t sick, but still build your immune system!
All astrologers knew this was coming, even if they didn’t know the specifics. In Sylvia Browne’s book “End of Days” published in 2008, she wrote:
“In around 2020, a severe pneumonia-like illness will spread throughout the globe, attacking the lungs and the bronchial tubes and resisting all known treatments. Almost more baffling than the illness itself will be the fact that it will suddenly vanish as quickly as it arrived, attack again ten years later, and then disappear completely.”
Before it vanishes this year, however, I feel there will be a second wave that comes just when we think we’ve got a good hold on it. As with a lot of flu-like infections in recent years, just when we think we’re better and get on with our lives, it comes back even harder. That’s because we didn’t heal the complete infection, only as much as was holding us back. I feel the second phase will hit us, specifically in the USA, sometime around June and its repercussions will last throughout the summer. We can see what happens in China in the immediate future because they’re preparing to get back to “normal”. We’ll see (assuming we can trust the information they’re providing, which we really can’t). Look to the end of September before we can really feel like we’re getting back to normal, although be aware it needs to be a new normal.
Hopefully I’m wrong about how long this will last. But we’ll still be dealing with the economic disruption Covid19 has already caused, and the blow-back from isolation from countries we’ve come to rely on in such a way that we don’t consciously realize. As 2020 is a Truth-Revealed re-set year, we are being re-set even if we don’t want to be. Still, we all agreed to be here for the big show, and now, we’re right in the middle of it.
In Master Astrologer Gahl Sasson’s book “The Astrology of 2020—The Leap of Faith: The Dawning of a New World”, he writes:
“In numerology, 2020 is reduced to number 4 (2+0+2+0), which in Chinese is homophone to the word “death.” That is why many buildings in China “do not” profess to have 4th or 14th or 40th floor. But 2020 also adds up to 22 which is a Master Number and in numerology is often referred to as a Master Builder. In Kabbalah, it is believed that God created the universe using the 22 Hebrew letters, and there are 22 Major Arcana in the Tarot cards that depict the journey of the Fool. So, yes, there is death this year, but there is also the potential in building a new world order, which embraces unity and collaboration between countries and nation. Viruses are not racists, homophobic, misogynist, Islamophobic, bigoted, or antisemitic. The virus parasite finds its host among believers and unbelievers, young and old. It gives us a chance to learn how we are all connected, and how we can come together to defeat it. COVID-19 is the common enemy that unites us.”
A FINAL NOTE
For light and energy workers, healers, and those sensitive to vibrations and the energetic changes we’re experiencing, you’ll probably be extra tired or feel achy throughout this pandemic. That has nothing to do with you being infected. With everyone in a high level of stress and fear, the automatic “help/heal response” within you kicks in without you having to send out healing energy. Others’ needs are so strong, they can sap you. Put extra shielding around yourself and save your energy for those you specifically chose to help/heal. This pandemic is karmic on many levels, even down to the microcosmic health of every individual. Avoid taking on another’s karma right now. The time will come when it can help but that’s not now The healing needed comes from within each of us.
I offer this with love and gratitude…
