A Channeled Message from the Coronavirus
from Jeff Vander Clute, 8 March 2020 (website at the end of the post)
"There has been a lot of talk about the Coronavirus. When I connected with this novel life form and asked it to tell me about itself, what came through was a list of its top gifts, followed by a message for humanity. I was somewhat surprised, and also comforted, by the information. My hope is that these words will help people to relax and trust that life is acting with benevolent wisdom.
The gifts of the virus:
Slowing down humanity’s frenetic activities
Activating networks of cooperation
Spreading helpful DNA
Upgrading humanity’s immune system
Creating the conditions for peace and well-being
Saving lives, especially over the long term, by strengthening the web of life
Here is the message that the Coronavirus had to share:
My friends, it is true that I am here to bring closure to the inharmonious ways of being that are causing harm to humans and the whole web of life. All the same, I am not a vengeful being or anything that is intended to be destructive. I am simply the rebalancing agent in the overall equation of life’s evolutionary process. By fighting me with fear in your hearts, you oppose the larger natural systems and cause me to take other forms.
What I am, and my fundamental purpose, will not be deterred, for I am life itself acting through the available forms of distribution. The virus that you see me as is one of an endless series of permutations. This kind of process is one of the ways I innovate life forms and deliver new DNA sequences that will eventually be shown to be helpful. The back and forth between humanity’s collective immune system and the virus is raising consciousness as humans examine their interactions, and it is literally increasing the intelligence of the superorganism that is the species as a whole.
These tests are normal. I repeat: These tests are normal. For those who can hear this message and embrace me easily, you already know that fear is a much more lethal poison. For those who will not be comforted by these words, one day you will know that I come as an act of love. When you can open to the love that is at the very heart of this situation, the crisis that your media and governments decry will transform into a flower of life, spreading new consciousness and multiplying circles of cooperation. Pay attention to your thoughts and see if you can identify the benefits of redirecting humanity’s attention from incessant wars and violence to the common “enemy” that I am willing to be perceived as.
Love will go this far, and farther, to bring healing to the mind of a young species that is still in the process of remembering itself as a divine incarnation. Yes, you are a divine incarnation capable of fabricating realities based on goodness and beauty and compassionate understandings, actions, and beliefs. Believe me when I say that I, too, am here as an act of compassion. Accepting me in this way will lighten your heavy burden for the divine sends only love your way. Sometimes this love takes curious forms in order to circumvent your intricate defenses against waking up to your own glory. I can assure you that the most functional strategy will be to embrace me as a friend of the human family."

Christmas at Midlife
I am no longer waiting for a special occasion; I burn the best candles on ordinary days.
I am no longer waiting for the house to be clean; I fill it with people who understand that even dust is Sacred.
I am no longer waiting for everyone to understand me; It’s just not their task
I am no longer waiting for the perfect children; my children have their own names that burn as brightly as any star.
I am no longer waiting for the other shoe to drop; It already did, and I survived.
I am no longer waiting for the time to be right; the time is always now.
I am no longer waiting for the mate who will complete me; I am grateful to be so warmly, tenderly held.
I am no longer waiting for a quiet moment; my heart can be stilled whenever it is called.
I am no longer waiting for the world to be at peace; I unclench my grasp and breathe peace in and out.
I am no longer waiting to do something great; being awake to carry my grain of sand is enough.
I am no longer waiting to be recognized; I know that I dance in a holy circle.
I am no longer waiting for Forgiveness. I believe, I Believe. -Mary Anne Perrone

Melissa Toler continues to open my eyes to the inequities of our mainstream ideas of being healthy & well & worthy. Read this brief piece & "like" if you agree.
Consider this: Health doesn't have to be our #1 priority.
The idea that we don't have to prioritize our health is a radical one.
This is one of the hardest things I've had to unlearn.
It goes against everything I've been taught in my professional and personal life.
Just think about how we're told that we have complete control over our health (we don't, BTW) and that we should be working towards being in optimal health it ALL THE TIME.
Being 'healthy' is considered a normal state of being.
And anything that is deemed 'unhealthy' is an anomaly or a deviation...something that needs to be fixed.
We learn to associate health with morality and worthiness, which is just the carrot on a stick that keeps us striving and struggling.
After years of doing internal work, the idea that health is NOT REQUIRED for worthiness feels less radical now...and more human.
We don't have to be healthy to deserve dignity and respect.
We don't have to be healthy to be seen as a whole, complete human being.
We are always enough.
Focus on being in your body, not scrutinizing it. Amen!
[Note: please don’t comment on how I look in this photo because that’s exactly the engrained behavior that this post is working to overcome.]
I found myself scrutinizing my body and headed down a spiral of wanting to look different.
I started to feel worse and worse.
Then I remembered something: my body is not primarily for looking good. It’s for feeling good.
I put on music. I made myself laugh. I put my attention on sensation.
I stopped looking at myself in the mirror and started dancing in the mirror instead.
Within minutes I felt good. Powerful. Sexy. Lit up.
The bliss is there, just below the surface.
Self scrutiny keeps the lid on it. Judgement keeps the lid on it. Forgetting that we’re here primarily to feel good, not look good, keeps the lid on it.
But it’s available when we decide to shift from looking to feeling.
I’m so grateful I get to be here in this vessel and that I get to feel this good when I remember that it’s possible.
What do you do to feel good in your body? I’m always looking to add to my “Bliss List” so tell me in the comments!
My new Do Less Planner is designed for you to prioritize feeling good in your body as a tool for productivity.
