chapter 15—TOGETHER we will RISE amidst Covid-19 turmoil

deydreaming cloud thought

It’s Saturday. April 11, 2020.

They paved Planet Earth and put up lots of parking lots…we’ve been listening to lots of uplifting music, and we haven’t been watching the News. Our spirits are high, on the most natural high. No recreational materials needed to get us UP here, just a lot of uplifting music, chats, meditation, speakers, writings, readings, the list goes on.

We are ingesting and creating as much uplifting content as possible, while still remaining real.

Amidst Coronavirus, what is real?

Real is now. Real is this moment. Real are the things that you can see, hear, smell, taste, touch. As we shared in one of our prior Covid-19 posts, real is what your five-senses can perceive right now.

Real is not feeling bad for others negatively affected by the coronavirus situation. Real is not taking it upon yourself to feel others hurt, and hurt your-Self. Real is doing something about this whole worldwide pandemic thing. What have you been doing to help us all out?

Us includes you. The better that you are—mentally, physically, spiritually, emotionally—the more useful you can be to humankind. The more loving, respectful, and grateful you can be towards your friends and family, clients and strangers.

It’s not virtuous to feel bad for others, that doesn’t make you a better human; it only makes you egotistical. It puts you above all else. We are all the same. We are all one. When other’s hurt, we feel it too, but feeling bad for them is not the answer—that’s just promoting more hurt in our world. Instead, how can you lift them UP?

Amidst covid-19, how can you lift yourself UP?

We’ve been listening to good music, sending inspiring texts, reaching out with positive talks, guiding meditations and practicing ourselves, as well as doing Yoga. Also, watching inspirational speakers (like Steven Furnik, from yesterdays post), writing a lot, reading some more, reaching out to all whom have impacted our lives in many ways, and even those whom we’ve just crossed paths with occasionally—everyone we know deserves to be happy, healthy, grateful, loved, and fulfilled amidst uncertainty.

Our whole human lives are based on uncertainty. So let’s not let coronavirus let us forget that. Let’s not let covid-19 make us think that humans dying is the worst thing possible—humans die everyday, and before Coronavirus they were actually dying for worse f@&ed up things, like wars over land, religion, and oil. But nobody was stopping the world then because we thought we had control, but we’ve never had control.

Only God, the Universe, Source, Allah, Creation have had the power, and they are showing us now. They are urging us to reprioritize Human Life, our existence, and how we affect this world, our home: Planet Earth.

We are all together in this Covid-19 thing.

Together, let’s RISE.

Let’s nurture a thriving world. Share this message with your community.

Flashback Friday: how can this covid-19 prolonged isolation be useful?

what can time spent fearing something be better used for

It’s Friday. April 10, 2020.

In the West, the Pacific Northwest to be exact, people are being forced to stay home until about May 4, or 5, or TBD. This is a time of extreme isolation. Truthfully, for me, it’s been too long already…it’s getting to the point where getting forced to stay home totally sucks; however, maybe, if the constant noise pollution from the construction across my street diminished, I’d feel rather different.

And, also, there’s the part where some of me must have manifested it somehow…in someway. Or, it’s happening for a reason, some greater good. I hope that one of those is the reason, and at the same time, I know that bits of everything is. There is so much to the truth; like, there is so much to this Covid-19 worldwide pandemic. 

Simply, Coronavirus is giving us a forced reset

There are things one cannot do while being home all day, yet there’s so much one can get done. There is so much that we all need to get done (as a species); the world sped up, way too fast, then about twenty years later, not many of us took the time to look around—to notice and observe what changed. 

Covid-19 is forcing us to do it. 

Has the internet and social media enhanced our lives? Be truthful. For me, it’s the former—the latter was, at times, quite painful, but the internet (overall) has been a ball. A gift that keeps on giving. Like, isn’t so wonderful how connected we all are despite being worlds away. Because of the magic of the Internet we are not alone when everyone is so alone. All of us are caught in uncertainty. None of us know what the outcomes holds. None of us know where this is all going. Yet, all of us have a part in the making of it. 

Where we go after Coronavirus is up to all of us. 

Wherever we focus on the road that we are taking is where we end up. Simple mechanics and explanation of the framework of the mind. You are the captain of your ship, you tell the mind where to go. Let the News co-captain, and have the News co-direct where you are going. Or, take the reigns to your own vessel, yourself. This is where we want to go: to a better future for all. Yes, that includes plants, and animals, and elements.

Planet Earth, we will take care of you, again, and all of your inhabitants. We will be vigilant in our cooperation with you Planet Earth, and each-other, thus no other pandemic will ever fall upon us. 

Doesn’t that sound f@#%ing wonderful. And, isn’t ever so possible? We have the technology for everyone, let’s not kid ourselves: capitalism is dead. The way the wheels were turning wasn’t working. A new form is evolving. 

Train your mind to see it. Refocus your mind to see the good in change. Let the humankind tribe THRIVE.

Let the coronavirus pandemic fulfill Souls.

Humankind needed this time to relax, to process how quickly everything got over the last twenty years—do you remember how slow the nineties were? Oh, that painful dial-up rhythm (it’s so loud in the back of my mind), it’s so prevalent because the nineties was less than a generation ago. It wasn’t that long ago when the world sped up. Minds collided, everything got smaller, yet most People didn’t take the time to see it. Now is the time for self-exploration. 

Where do you want to go? That’s where our world will go. What is it that you are currently focusing on, and feeling with certainty? That’s where you are steering your ship. Overall, remember that nothing is certain but the PRESENT.

So, what is real for you right now? Focus on that, and focus on being f@#%ing grateful. 

Finally, let’s get creative about where we are going after the coronavirus pandemic—let’s get someplace great.

chapter 14—What did you label your CoronaVirus experience?

de

It’s Thursday. April 9, 2020.

Thank you so much for being here. Thank you for sharing another lovely day with me. Thank you for being PRESENT amidst the chaos.

Thank you for choosing to see the goodness Coronavirus has brought in our world.

While you become aware that Life is fragile, it’s so important to refocus your attention to all of the wonderful things Life has to offer. 

If it gets hard to remember, there are mindfulness tools you can use to refocus your streaming thought-patterns [and we definitely recommend checking out 7daysPRESENT]. For now…

Here are a few “how-to be mindful” tricks:

Whenever Life brings you less than “enjoyable” things, whenever you CATCH your Self stuck on a though, feeling, or overall BAD idea that’s NOT making you FEEL GOOD, It’s up to YOU to STOP. Take a breath, and have a chat with yourself.

Break the negative Inner Narrative that CoronaVirus may be creating.

Ask yourself some basic questions:

WHO are you right now?
WHAT is truly going on at this moment?
WHERE are you physically?

WHEN are you mentally?
WHY are you there?
HOW can you refocus you attention on the Present moment?

Pick apart the unhelpful narrative going on inside your head. Defragment the story, then pick up the pieces that you actually WANT to keep.

What do you really want to give your energy to amidst Covid-19?

Don’t you want to nourish your Self and grow? You have to give your Energy to THAT.  All that makes you grow.

Refocusing attention is what it takes to THRIVE.

You each have a gorgeous garden growing inside of you, use your 5-senses to tend to your garden after a rough rainfall; i.e. a rush of bad news. Observe with your FIVE SENSE, then determine, what is real?

After a mega wind-storm; i.e. extreme feelings of Lack. Observe with your FIVE SENSE: what is REAL?

It’s Never Lack, you are never really lacking anything—everything you truly need is always within your reach.

You just need to tend to your mental-garden: refocus on your truest SELF.

Your truest Self is not the one experiencing the Fear, Doubt, and Lack. Your truest Self has everything You need within you already. No fear. No doubt. No lack.

So THANK YOUR Self, for allllllll that you already have. Your Higher Self does so much that your Human Mind/Body/Ego take for granted.

So take the time to really appreciate your Self, especially now, amidst CoronaVirus. 

Start small, build big.

Let’s nurture a thriving world. Share this message with your community.

chapter 13—a tip for GETTING OUT of YOUR OWN WAY amidst Covid-19

Today is just one of those days that I feel really grateful nothing particularly awesome or incredible happened today, but I just feel really blessed and thankful - deydreaming - mindfulness - cloud thoughts - daydreaming - uplifting cloudThoughts - inspirational and motivational blog - with a hint of meditation

It’s Wednesday. April 8, 2020.

I used to be one of those people. I used to get in my own way—a lot. But, like, how it’s not really their fault, it wasn’t technically my fault either. I say technically because, once I became aware of how I was soft-wired, I didn’t immediately do something about it.

I thought it was beyond my power, and maybe it was. I had to do a lot of releasing and a lot of reconnecting with Creation. I got to do a lot of work with All-That-Is to get me past the point of complacency and into adaptation. Into evolution. Into thriving.

We are far past just surviving, see it now; our world is SHIFTING.

Because of coronavirus, all of us are caught up in uncertainty, so we are forced to allow things to just happen.

Covid-19 is teaching us to allow THRIVING. 

We are able to embrace tremulous times and inner weather by just letting go and allowing things to happen in our world. Because truly, we were never really in control—at least, not of the world around us. But we’ve always had agency over what we choose to give power to inside of our own heads. This pandemic time is helping us learn that. We can learn from many things during this coronavirus; including learn to learn from our closest ancestors: animals.

Learn from the animals; they just let go.

I don’t know where we are going, there is no roadmap to get to where is next. Our lives are our own journey, yet we still share it with others.

What do we each bring to each of our own communities? How do we contribute?

If there’s a chance that we may leave the world way better than we found it, let’s try that. Let’s go for that. Let’s embrace and experience that. Love and enjoy the life we have here on this day, in this Time, on this planet; our home: Earth.

Where do we go next? It’s time to embrace it, TODAY. We never really know about tomorrow.

Appreciate everything.

Every little effort needs to be appreciated. It’s how the biggest buildings start, with the small things, with preparation, and foundation. Even babies don’t learn how-to walk overnight; whether or not they craw first, there’s always a bunch of trial and error in between. And this happens throughout life; the Initial Learner inside of us is always a baby. For every new thing a human starts doing let’s show it the compassion we give to babies when they begin to try something new. Let them fail a bunch of times, and see it as growth. Always remember that that gentle Initial Learner is always with us; however we treat our inner baby that’s how the rest of our Being will respond.

Humans are finicky Beings.

SO let’s all practice walking in Inner Harmony. Let’s all consistently refocus our thoughts. Let’s have compassion towards our many Selfs inside of us throughout every stage of the process. Practice an abundance of Self-compassion, see how you start giving it to others. See how our world changes, for the better with Self-acceptance.

Remember to accept the ideas that your Spirit puts in you— accept the expansive feeling of Agape Love and Respect and Care for yourself and others.

All of the wonderful possibilities are within you. Can you embrace this?

Let’s all TRY.

Begin with the words that you choose to say. Tape your mouth-shut if you have to; do it for whole week and listen to the words that want to come out—do you even really need to say them? Especially the negative stuff…do you really need to say that $#!+. Or do you just revert to it, but why?

Use your better Imagination. Practice in the spur of the moment, practice with your Self throughout the day. This will help you overcome the negative talk patterns that you may, or may not, continuously regress to.

All we have to do is try. Try. Try. Try. Try.

Let’s nurture a thriving world. Share this message with your community.

chapter 12—for all the Covid-19 curve-of-negativity survivors

Thank you Universe Thank you Source for giving me honest work good work work that enriches the lives of others and fulfills my soul- - deydreaming - mindfulness - cloud thoughts - daydreaming - uplifting cloudThoughts - inspirational and motivational blog - with a hit of meditation

It’s Tuesday. April 7, 2020.

Another day in the life of a CoronaVirus curve-of-negativity survivor.

The coronavirus has killed less people than drunk-driving. The coronavirus has physically hurt less people than domestic violence abuse. The coronavirus has proliferated in the minds of humans more than cancer and the flu—both violent and frequent killers. But that’s not on the NEWS.

Instead, there’s all these stories about people suffering. Man, that sucks; that family is going through some $#!+. Darn, those people lost everything. Gosh, the world is really being affected, things are sure down-whirl spiraling—or, are they?

Could they be down-whirl spiraling because people keep fueling the fire of Fear? Everyday is uncertain. Everyday could be our last. Yet, some people seem to forget, and coronavirus is actually helping us all remember: WE. ARE. MORTAL.

Humans are meant to die. Humans are meant to live in uncertainty; unless, we realized the one thing that is certain:

we are all in this together.

So, when one person suffers, we feel it in the whole. Way up in the highest frequency, where we are all connected. That’s why, people who seemingly have everything feel so empty inside. Having things is not fulfilling.

What is fulfilling?

Since stuff doesn’t fill the gapping hole in our Soul, what does?

  1. walks in Nature.
  2. basking in the visual beauty and smells of flowers.
  3. watching the ripples of the water flow.
  4. observing the clouds move, and the sun glow.
  5. awaiting the twinkling of new stars to pop-out at night.
  6. noticing the transformation of the moon over time.
  7. witnessing the flight of birds; they’re so playful and strong.
  8. playing with a toddler, the truest essence of us all.
  9. brightening up someones day.
  10. giving an orange to an Urban Camper.
  11. listening to non-lyrical music, or listing to music with uplifting lyrics.
  12. pets—of all kind.
  13. sharing smiles and gentle nods with strangers
  14. sharing uplifting blog posts and video with friends and family members
  15. sharing good things with everyone we know: for we are all in this together.

So let’s shine a light on that!

The World wants things to change; during and after Coronavirus.

So what is going to change? Unless the change happens within you, not much is going to happen. Maybe you’ll stay the same, maybe the negativity will cause you to inevitably down-whirl spiral. Or perhaps, you will learn.

You will learn how to be grateful for everything.

You will learn how to see all of the beautiful things in life—over the ugly ones.

You will learn to give your power (attention and focus) to the better part of life.

Giving your Energy to focus on $#!++y things only fuels MORE of those $#!++y things. So actively learn to switch your focus. Guide your light to what you truly want to shine. Else, you’ll waste your Energy on all the $#!++y things you didn’t even want to begin with.

SO what do you want in this Life?
  • walks in Nature.
  • basking in the visual beauty and smells of flowers.
  • watching the ripples of the water flow.
  • observing the clouds move, and the sun glow.
  • awaiting the twinkling of new stars to pop-out at night.
  • noticing the transformation of the moon over time.
  • witnessing the flight of birds; they’re so playful and strong.
  • playing with a toddler, the truest essence of us all.
  • brightening up someones day.
  • giving an orange to an Urban Camper.
  • listening to non-lyrical music, or listing to music with uplifting lyrics.
  • pets—of all kind.
  • sharing smiles and gentle nods with strangers
  • sharing uplifting blog posts and videos with friends and family members
  • sharing good things with everyone we know: for we are all in this together.

Let’s shine a light on that! Again and again refocus let’s refocus our attention to where we want Life to go—what’s on your list?

Write it down and focus on it. With all of your attention and intention. For accountability, you may share it here also.

Let’s nurture a thriving world. Share this message with your community.

chapter 11—how covid-19 affected CloudThoughts 

Inner Cheerleader -deydreaming - cloudthought -daydreaming - cloud thought -inspirational motivational mindful daily message

It’s Monday. April 6, 2020.

We’re finding ways to relax amidst covid-19.

We all need to relax amidst this coronavirus world-wide pandemic. We all need to resonate at a thriving frequency, so we all need to stop focusing on survival. Stop watching the News.

There is no need to focus and waste our precious mental energy on what we cannot see: the truth is that coronavirus is way more prevalent in the news because of ratings. So many people feel the needed to stay “informed” about coronavirus, myself included, that News rating went up; the machine was fueled.

Now it’s so prevalent, so I still check the News. But doing so only shreds my positive frequency.

I care so much for others. I want everyone to be okay. Since you’re reading this, chances are, you probably want the same thing: for people to get better. For our world to get better.

A quick and simple way to launch us to better, is finding ways to relax amidst this coronavirus pandemic forced isolation period.

So, each time you realize that you’ve lost consciousness of the PRESENT moment, each time you catch yourself ruminating in what the possible future holds, practice breathing.

Just take seven breaths.

Just observe these breath.

…easily observe as your nasal airways expand. See how they effortlessly allow air in. See how they effortlessly draw the breath into your lungs (effortlessly expanding them to their fullest vertical capacity). Notice this.

Then feel as the breath easily travels into your nose, behind your throat, past your heart, straight towards your belly button, and into your sit bone.

Observe the micro movements of your body as your muscles and ligaments slowly readjust themselves into their optimal position.

Be thankful for the Awareness your mind is investing. Watch the breaths flow, and accept being relaxed.

Accept feeling content.

Accept it with gratitude
—sigh out.

Let it go.

What is of yesterday is not of tomorrow. What happens next is in the actions that you currently take. Be strong humankind, be gentle; it takes time to learn, to grow, to evolve.

It takes lots of effort. And we are all welcomed to try.

What happens when we all try ways to relax and thrive amidst coronavirus together?

What happens when the entire human machine all focuses, together, on one thought: we can get through this.

We can surpass this.

We can overcome this in triumph because we’ve conquered the mind—the last horizon left to conquer in this world.

Once we extend our mental capacities and learn to manage emotional intelligence we can do wonders; even more magical than plane, cars, microwaves, and iPhones.

But are we ready to embrace all of that? Are we ready to own up to: where our attention flows, our bodies follow.

Cognition is what makes us “better” than animals. Yet cognition is what’s gotten us in trouble over and over again.

Whomever thought up the atomic bomb was like: hmm…extraordinary power, with the possibility to wipe out the human-species…I’ll take it!

Hitler was the same way. So are all the mad-scientist that cultivate diseases in labs. Or the people that harm animals unnecessarily.

We don’t even need to eat that much protein. Have you realized that?

We never say “take our word for it” no, we urge you to: research, learn, and practice for your SELF.

Let’s just get back to better than before coronavirus.

We are all getting adequate time to rest; let this time be of rest. Surrender to the greater good.

When you realize that you’ve lost consciousness and gotten stuck inside the monkey chatter about coronavirus, practice breathing.

Take seven breaths each time you regain consciousness. Easily observe as your nasal airways expand; see how they effortlessly allow air in. They effortlessly draw the breath into your lungs (effortlessly expanding them to their fullest vertical capacity).

Feel as the breath easily travels into your nose, behind your throat, past your heart, straight towards your belly button, and into your sit bone.

Observe the micro movements of your body as your muscles and ligaments slowly readjusts themselves into their optimal position. Be thankful for the Awareness your mind is investing.

Watch the breaths flow. Accept being relaxed. Accept feeling content. Accept it with gratitude—sigh out. Let everything go.

What is of yesterday is not of tomorrow. What happens next is in the actions that you currently take. Be strong humankind, be gentle; it takes time to learn, to grow, to evolve. It takes lots of effort.

Thanks to covid-19, we are all urged to try.

Let’s nurture a thriving world. Share this message with your community.
