I’m not sure about anyone else, but I am mentally and emotionally all-over-the-map! I am finding it hard to concentrate, to pick a topic or task on which to focus and once I do select one, I am having trouble getting started because my mind and my emotions are taking over.
I feel compelled to watch the news. My husband and adult children are out in the world. My husband is going into the city every day because the nature of his work requires it.
During the day, I am wondering where he is, what he is doing, who he is in contact with. I am thinking about my adult children knowing they must be in contact with people or their significant others are in contact and so they are in contact-by-proxy.
One thing that helps me is to turn off the TV and turn on my meditation music. I have an eye mask that can make the world black and a mantra or a breathing technique that helps me to center. In that cocooned moment in time I allow myself to travel through time and space and connect with my spiritual guide. For many of you that is Jesus or Mary, while for others is may be Mohammad, or Yahweh, the Source, the Universal Spirit, the Divine, angels. The point is there is a spiritual guide available, and s/he is waiting.
I think about prayer. Over the years, I have learned that though there are many prescribed ways to pray, there is no one correct way. God or the Divine by any name is so immense that s/he understands anything we say. It is about the focusing that is needed. We all need to be in prayerful meditation these days. We need it for us, for our families, our neighbors, our country and the world.
I am offering free Health and Wellness Coaching during this difficult time. What does that mean? If you are looking for someone to walk along side you as you process and determine what you want to focus on and how to set up a plan that works that would be someone like me. I work in the areas of Lifestyle, Exercise, Attitude and Nutrition and believe in the importance of balancing the Pillars of Wellness: physical, nutritional, emotional, social, spiritual, intellectual, financial, and environmental.
