Getting Infected With Covid-19 Changed My Life Forever

I am certain numerous have been asking: Why Covid? Why so globally? Why now? And I have addressed some of these concerns in earlier articles. But at that time I wasn’t speaking from knowledge, I was simply sharing my theories about it devoid of possessing verified them in sensible terms. Nicely, now I have verified at least a single of those theories, and I am eager to share it.

We have all heard about connectedness and oneness, and how Covid is (hopefully) bringing us a step closer to these experiences, seeing how we are all in this with each other. But then once again, are we definitely all in this with each other? Personally, am not so confident about that hunting at the controversies in government policies (particularly in nations exactly where elections are taking spot for the duration of the pandemic), the push-backs from the public against restrictions (not a lot of us are willingness to sacrifice our “valuable” routines for the higher very good), and far more not too long ago – the distribution of vaccines (these who pay far more get additional).

So what are we missing? When and how are we finally going to study the lesson? And what is that lesson?

Really, Covid offers us an obvious clue both about the What we will need to study and the How. What Covid sufferers practical experience and in some instances die from is lack of air. And air is the quite thing that connects us all. To use one of Jessica Dibb’s observations, we can produce an in-group and an out-group (i.e. manifest separation) based on race, profession, gender, age, social characteristics, appears, etc. But there is a single frequent denominator which, when applied, leads us automatically to oneness – the breath. As a result, no matter what beliefs, traumas and preferences we have, we all belong to the group of breathers. And the breath (which, as I have come to knowledge, is the embodiment of Spirit), is what connects us all and provides us the physical, somatic knowledge of oneness. BUT only if we pay focus to it!

Surprise, surprise – Covid is bringing our focus and awareness exactly to the breath. As such, Covid is asking us to start off living a additional spiritually oriented life: a life where we are certainly extra connected, a life lived in the NOW. Importantly, by bringing our focus to the breathing, Covid is not only displaying us the lesson we need to have to find out, i.e. the lesson of oneness it is also showing us how we can discover mentioned lesion, and that is just by staying focused on the breath and practicing conscious breathing.

With out a doubt, conscious breathing is what can give us a direct spiritual knowledge (albeit in physical bodies). I personally learnt that by way of becoming forced (following finding infected with Covid) to pay focus to the breath. Not that I hadn’t dabbled in numerous yoga and meditation practices prior to. But this time the shift in awareness was so profound! Armed with a somewhat survival-driven motivation at the beginning of the disease, I dove deep into numerous breathing strategies, and the a lot more intimately I got to know conscious breathing, the additional my encounter of separation was dissolving. I was feeling so considerably lighter, happier and, of course, more connected. I was getting the lesson! Far more importantly, I was healing a illness not brought on by Covid but merely highlighted by it.

Sadly, I think the complete planet is sick with that identical illness – the illness of Separation. Therefore, we have a worldwide pandemic. This pandemic has managed to highlight in a brilliant way the pervasiveness of the pathology we all suffer from, the breathlessness and lack of connectedness throughout the globe. Covid is just the red light right here signaling we want to fix the engine. And it is not going away in a hurry, at least not till we all come to be conscious of the genuine dilemma and start out taking the right action towards resolving it. The actual trouble, certainly, is a profound spiritual disconnect. We, as a planet, have reached the hallmark of Separation. Hence, Covid is screaming at us: “Use the breath, men and women, and connect!”

On the face of it, I wholeheartedly encourage you to seek out some conscious breathing practices and start incorporating them in your life (if you haven’t currently). Speaking about oneness does not enable you really feel it. Conscious breathing, on the other hand, requires us straight to the physical practical experience of oneness, to the embodiment of spirituality. Attempt it for your self and I am sure you will by no means appear back. It only requires a handful of conscious breaths to modify your point of view, and a diverse point of view opens doors to new, exciting and limitless possibilities.
