REFRAMING THE SITUATION

Reframing the situation. (i.e. “I’m stuck inside.” to “I’m now able to be at home with all the time I need to get things done and rest.”)

Plenty of rest – this is a blessing to be able to slow down, rest and regenerate. Take your perception of a negative situation and then flip it into a positive. It is a creative challenge that rewires your brain to search for and find positives in all situations/people/places/things. Good stuff!

Along the lines of reframing thoughts I’ve been focused on how this is giving the Earth a break from the pollution that massive amounts of travel as well as industrial production/pollution causes. This is a true blessing for Mother Nature to heal and swing back towards balance. This in and of itself is quite amazing and lifesaving in the long run.

Exercise – we don’t need fancy gyms with a personal trainer. Good old calisthenics – sit ups, jumping jacks, push ups, etc. Get creative! And walking is the sport of genius. I’ve had some of my best ideas while out walking (especially alone in nature).

Good nutrition. Everything you consume causes a chemical reaction. It really is that simple. The body breaks things down – whether it is kale or a bacon cheddar cheeseburger – to utilize it. Now is not the time to eat poorly. They call it “junk food” for a good reason. Chemicals bog the body down and cloud the mind. You truly are what you eat. Since food rationing is a thing, perhaps now is a great time to do a cleanse or intermittent fasting! (see that sweet little reframe!).

Cleaning out my space – organizing closets, cabinets, etc. A decluttered space is a positive thing. I’ve already bagged 3 big garbage bags of clothes to donate (when the time comes to go out and about).

Reconnect. This gives many sufficient time to reconnect on a deeper level with family and friends. When was the last time you had a real, genuine heart-to-heart meaningful conversation with the people in your life? For most, the chaos and hectic day-to-day schedules of work, school, errands, etc. leaves little time to sit, sip a cup of tea and just be present with each other. Phone calls, video chats, carrier pigeons…there are many ways to connect and communicate when you cannot be physically together.

Write, write, write – I am in part a writer by profession but the act of taking pen to paper is a proven method to clear your mind, organize your thoughts (to keep you out of “overwhelm”), to record your dreams and deeply buried thoughts and feelings, unlocking the subconscious in miraculous ways, to boost creativity (wonder how many books, movies and TV shows will be born out of this time of slowing down?) because we are creators.

When writing in a daily or dream journal it is vital that you do this by hand – no typing. That is the difference that makes the difference. It slows your mind because you have to slow down to write something that’s legible. Hey, great opportunity to improve your penmanship since we practically type everything. Handwriting is almost a lost artform that holds magical properties most have long forgotten. Write a love letter – to your lover, yourself, your future self (telling yourself how you not only survived but thrived during this most interesting time in history!), your imaginary boyfriend, whoever!

Create things – whether it is reviving an old hobby or learning new skills, again we are creators. So, find an outlet for all that glorious creativity inside you waiting to be unleashed!

Learn a new skill, language, hobby. That YouTube is a treasure trove. Perhaps you’ll learn a new skill that will lead to a better job or a promotion at your current job! Maybe you’ll create a secondary source of income. We are only limited by our imaginations.

Meditate. There are many forms of meditation that are as ancient as mankind. Find a couple that resonate with you. For some it is prayer, others find yoga, walking or running or other physical means of active meditation. Perhaps you’ll find a YouTube video that offers a new way for you to get heart-centered and peaceful.

Reduce fear inducing activities like watching or reading mainstream news/media or too much social media and internet. You’ve no idea who is on the other ends of all those computers cranking out all the stuff you see online. Discernment is crucial. While they attempt to “inform” most of it (especially now) is fear-based and incorrect which only makes matters worse. Gage how you’re feeling when online or watching/reading news and if you feel fear and dread welling up, shut it off and step outside to recalibrate in nature for a bit.

Trust your instincts. You’ve got extra time to slow down, reconnect to and reignite your inner knowing and self awareness. Know how much is enough for you without being overloaded. This gets back to being mindful, centered and in touch with all of your senses (which all of the above will assist you in accomplishing).

Well, this is rather long but the good news is you’ve got plenty of time on your hands to read it! I hope you’ll find some inspiration in this even if only 1 thing resonates with you. We are all in this together and our compassion and humor will serve us well.

Laughter and music raise our vibrations. The “happier” you are the “higher” you vibrate and it has been proven (even the scientists know about this!) that disease/imbalance cannot exist in a high vibe state of being. The ancients have always known it and many of us today know this universal truth.

What are your thoughts on this post? Are you engaging in any of the above? Anything to add?

I wanted to share this list of strategies for people to cope better during this phase of dealing with the viral outbreak now happening. They are helpful during any time of boredom, feeling “stuck” or being in isolation during a pandemic.

Whenever I find myself or a client getting caught up in all the panic and fear, I come back to these techniques. Always trust your insight over eyesight. 

Please feel free to share this information.

The Current Global Epidemic of Soul Loss

Now more than ever, humanity is suffering a level of Soul Loss that is virtually unprecedented. What some label as PTSD (and other things like depression, apathy, addictions, etc.), is actually soul loss. Humanity is suffering soul loss on individual, family, community, national and global levels. It is a true epidemic. Many believe and fear we are approaching a tipping point where once critical mass is hit…there’ll be no going back.

Many have no idea what the term “soul loss” actually means. The article below beautifully and simply describes it. Here is one quick example. Have you ever heard of someone who was in a really bad car accident and they say that all they remember is when the accident started and then they woke up in the hospital? They don’t remember any details of the accident. And after this accident, they’ve never quite been the same. It could be dramatic or subtle. But something is “off” and they can’t put their finger on it. That is a soul loss event. It is actually a protection mechanism that sometimes corrects on its own but many times requires intervention. 

And unfortunately, anyone other than authentic Shamans cannot transform this and help you heal and return to your fully functioning balanced self. Medical doctors will prescribe pharmaceuticals because that’s their area of knowledge. Pharmaceuticals do nothing to cure – they help mask the observed symptoms but do not get to the root of the problem.

It is like having a yard full of dandelions that you want to get rid of so you go around just popping the heads of the flowers. On all outward appearances it would seem that you’ve gotten rid of/handled your weed problem. But time will prove that you only treated the problem at a shallow surface level and the actual weed problem is still there and will manifest in dandelions again.

Therapists will also prescribe pharmaceuticals and have you talking about things repeatedly – which only ingrains the problem even further making it potentially far worse because you are giving these “negative” aspects a lot of your attention, energy, and money for temporary surface false solutions. Granted, perhaps talking with someone will help you to identify and verbalize what is bothering you. But in the end it will not correct soul loss.

Anyone who knows anything about energy and the “Observer Effect” knows the outcome of focused attention on anything especially if it is repeated over time. This is ancient wisdom and technology that all humans have but only Shamans can work on and change. It is in our DNA to do this work but time has caused many to forget their true power. Shamans can help you get your soul parts back, integrated and your life balanced and back on track to fulfill your true potential and purpose.

You don’t have to be an astronaut to enjoy the stars. Same for this. You don’t have to understand it or believe it to make it the truth. Millions of people across time and all walks of life all over this planet have experienced the life-changing work of soul retrieval and shamanism. Some things are true whether you know, accept, understand or believe them or not. Who knows. Perhaps you are a naturally talented soul retrieval shaman who has yet to awaken your latent abilities that could help you as well as the rest of humanity. Because the part is in the whole and the whole is in the part. When one person is healed it affects everything. 

Symptoms of Soul Loss:

Soul loss is easily recognizable if you know what you’re looking for. Here’s a checklist of some of the classic symptoms:

• feelings of being fragmented, of not being all here

• blocked memory – an inability to remember parts of one’s life

• an inability to feel love or receive love from another

• emotional remoteness

• PTSD 

• a sudden onset of apathy or listlessness

• a lack of initiative or enthusiasm

• a lack of joy

• a failure to thrive

• an inability to make decisions

• rage, uncontrolled anger, sudden outbursts of negativity

• an inability to discriminate

• chronic negativity

• addictions

• suicidal tendencies

• melancholy or despair

• chronic depression

One of my biggest concerns is that there are not enough authentic Shamanic practitioners who are initiated and specialize in soul retrieval. It is not something you can just take a workshop for then do. This specialty is of a higher calling and requires initiations that many have never experienced. 

Please beware when someone says they are a Shaman (as that’s your first clue to run in the opposite direction) and that they do soul retrievals. A word to the wise should be sufficient. If you would like referrals for people who do soul retrievals, you can contact me privately. I’ve written about Dr. Wesselman as well as my own Soul Loss and the Soul Retrieval that Jill Kuykendall did for me in my book,  JOURNEY OF A DREAM MASTER.

Below is a photo I took in Sonoma, California of Hank soaking up the mana of JDM with his wife Jill in the background. We were there doing an advanced Shamanic week of study with a small select group hand-picked by Dr. Hank and Jill.

Below is a link to an article about the three causes of spiritual illness including soul loss. There are also articles on Soul Loss and Soul Retrieval. Please read and watch the video(s). Dr. Hank Wesselman and his wife, Jill Kuykendall, have written much and their website is full of valuable information and incredible insights all free to those seeking the knowledge. I highly recommend their books and workshops. There are also YouTube videos of them that are very enlightening and fun. Their YouTube channel is: SharedWisdomCircle.

“Although the term “soul loss” is not familiar to most Westerners, examples of it are expressed daily in our language and descriptions of personal hardships. Media interviews and news reports include individuals’ comments such as “I lost a part of myself when that (trauma) happened” and “I have not been the same since.” When discussing soul loss with inquiring individuals, most everyone has a sense of having lost a “part” of themselves at some time in life, yet virtually no one has the awareness that the missing part(s) could be recovered. They can.”
