Spiritual awakening is a continuum, the neverending story. Every human being on earth is sacred and of Infinite worth; all unique in our own way with different paths leading to the same destination.
What we do have in common, is the essence of God. It lies within each of us waiting to be awakened. It has many names; divine spark, soul, or spirit to name a few. Our bodies are the temple. Perhaps the COVID-19 is the catalyst for many to begin the awakening process while others continue to enhance their spiritual awakening.
It is interesting to note that Dr. Andrew Newberg, a neuroscientist, has researched the brain function and various mental states. He learned we have spiritual brains, deeply connected to something greater than ourselves. The human brain that engages in prayer and/or meditation results in a powerful spiritual experiences that have been described in every tradition and society.
There are so many different aspects regarding the spiritual and human condition since our beginning. During the years 800–200 BC was one of the most creative and influential eras in history called the Axial Age; the evolution of human thought. Religious and philosophical activity took place in Asia and the Mediterranean. During this time, Jeremiah, Isaiah, The Buddha, Confucius, Vardhamana Mahavira, Pythagoras, Heraclitus, Socrates, Plato and Aristotle, produced the intellectual and moral matrix out of which the world religions were born. Religion developments are based in the ideas, concepts and insights from the Axial period.
And now we jump forward to March 2020, an unprecedented time of the quarantine, unlike the world has ever seen, based on the COVID-19. Perhaps this is our axial age, time to reflect and realize there is something greater, something more than we could ever imagine where new spiritual traditions emerge. By seeking the truth one will discover the world is not as it seems and the physical and metaphysical worlds are inseparable.
Your awakening may provide signs that are unique to each person. It is important to recognize the polarity of the signs, positive or negative entities providing the message. For those who are seeking the truth, an arduous and difficult journey, the signs may be more noticable. Common signs would be your thoughts, emotions, actions, dreams, signs in nature and numerology. Others may have mystical experiences and psychic abilities they simply do not want to discuss for obvious reasons. There may be an urging to want to know the truth or a array of other experiences unique to each person.
Perhaps this event is an awakening not only for ourselves, but for humanity. Now may be the time to raise the consciousness of our planet. Imagine 7.7 billion of us, thinking, feeling and feeling love and compassion while helping others around the planet. Love is the greatest and most powerful emotion, being difficult to understand, much less described. We can say it is divine energy radiating in all things. As spiritual beings having a physical experience, our understanding of love is simply from a physical perspective.
To know yourself is the same message our teachers such as Jesus, Buddha, Lao Tzu, Krishna and many others have been trying to tell us through the centuries. Lao Tzu tells us “Wisdom comes from knowing oneself. He who knows himself is enlightened”. In the dialogue of the Savior, Jesus said “Those who have truly found the Self within recognized that it exists everywhere.” and in Luke 17:21, KJV Jesus tells us, “, the kingdom of God is within you.” Buddha added, “Everyone has recognized the self-ones essential nature. But few have realized it.”
We are all spiritual warriors. Spiritual awakening and growth is listening and trusting your higher- self, the warrior, within. There is no better teacher. We all have Christ consciousness and Buddha nature to guide us. All we have to do is pay attention. We all have the gift of discernment or intuition, we just have to learn to trust ourselves.
During this time, perhaps it is time reflect how mother earth is healing herself, because of human inactivity. Maybe it is the time for us to heal, to look within ourselves through contemplation, meditation and prayer and discover our true selves and realize the world is not as it seems.
The world is not as it seems and it is changing rapidly each day. Seeking the truth is a lifelong endeavor. This unique experience with COVID-19 is a psychological war we are all involved generating positive and negative energies. Positive thoughts are of love , compassion, helping others, being grateful and appreciative for the opportunity to have this experience; On the other hand negative thoughts are filled with fear, anger, greed, hate and thinking only of yourself. This is our school and the reason we are here; to learn the ways of love and wisdom. We are essentially learning how to love and play well with each others.
It is not the world that needs work. It is not the others that need change. The only area that needs work is ourselves. We all have free-will to work, to hope, to dream and to walk that spiritual path in our own way. There are many paths leading to the same destination and the best teacher is the love and wisdom within.
There are many lessons that can be taken from COVID-19 pandemic, but perhaps the first and foremost is the lesson of love. Love is the greatest and most powerful emotion; difficult to understand, much less describe. Perhaps it can be explained as divine energy radiating in all things. It is said, love conquers all and some believe it is better to have lost in love than to never have loved at all. We are all spiritual beings having a physical experience. We can see how easy it is to control the masses through media and how we are taking part, and involved in a psychological warfare of fear.
From a spiritual perspective, it can be used as a catalyst for those to decide who they really are, positive or negative. Ask yourself, are you living in fear, despair and hate or in love and compassion while helping others cope? People of all walks of life, regardless of belief system including Christian, Jewish, Muslim, Hindu, Buddhist or Atheist, are all one people living on earth to learn the ways of love and wisdom. Perhaps this is our time to unite and support one another instead of spewing hate and discontent. We have all heard of patience and lack of; this is the time for calm and patience and not let the unruly mind take control, and certainly not to believe everything you hear.
Love is what our ancient teachers have been trying to convey to us for centuries. The ancient Chinese sage Lao Tzu said “Nothing but good comes to him who loves others as he loves himself” while Buddha tells us “When you see yourself in others, it is impossible to hurt anyone else.” Krishna said “to Me, all beings are the same. I hate none, and no one is more dear to Me than another.” and of course Jesus tells us, “Love your neighbor as yourself.”
There are 7.7 billion of us on this planet and within each is a Divine Power waiting to be awaken. Most disregard this concept simply because it is not something the five senses nor scientific evidence can detect. Our emotions, feelings and thoughts create our reality more than we will ever realized until now. Consider the COVID-19 as a humanity reset and now is the time to practice Love. Consider we are all one and how our thoughts, emotions and actions are creating and generating the global consciousness. We have free-will to choose love or fear.
You can find the most frequently up-to-date information about the COVID-19 on the Global Case Tracker.
Reporting on the coronavirus has been nonstop in the US as if nothing else is happening in the US or the world. The reporting seems to be more manipulative rather than honest, constructive reporting. It seems the media is being used to create panic and fear among the world populations with no regard for the truth. We are living a historical moment that ‘hopefully’ should teach everyone just how easy it is to control the masses.
Real global pandemics have been reported for hundreds of years. The best documented pandemics occurred in 1918 (H1N1, the Spanish flu), infecting 500 million and resulting in 20-50 million deaths. In 1957 (H2N2, the Asian flu), around 2 million deaths and in 1968 (H3N2, the Hong Kong flu) killing more than a million.
For comparison, you can find the most frequently up-to-date information about the COVID-19 on the Global Case Tracker and see for yourself how COVID-19 is affecting the world. As of March 14, 2020, world wide there are 153,524 confirmed cases, 5,789 deaths with 72,587 totally recovered.
The World Health Organization (WHO) has estimated the annual mortality with seasonal influenza to be 290, 000 to 650,000 all-cause deaths globally.
To put the death toll in perspective, during 2017, there were more than 70,200 overdose deaths in the United States and 47,600 of those overdose deaths involved opioids. More than 130 people died every day from opioid-related drug overdoses in 2016 and 2017, according to the US Department of Health & Human Services.
There is only one enemy and that enemy is fear. Worldwide, there are over 7 billion of us, thinking, talking, emotional, acting and reacting, all generating positive and negative energy. Fear is negative energy. We have approximately 50,000-70,000 thoughts a day, most with unruly minds. When we are bombarded with negative news from the media what are we creating? A study in the Journal of Clinical Psychology studied the effects of worrying on performing a task. Thinking negatively about problems not only doesn’t help solve anything, it actually makes it harder for you to think of a helpful solution.
Traditional views suggest experiences of positive emotions signal well-being and guide positive behavior in the moment.Positive emotions, have more long-lasting consequences. Positive emotions transform people for the better, providing a spiritual path for the future.
Fear Mongering in the media is provoking thought, creating emotions resulting in actions and reactions. When negative energy prevails, the effects are not seen immediately, but can be defined as a garden, slowing growing and taking hold in whatever soil we have prepared.
Buddha said our lives are products of our mind. What we are today is a result of what we thought yesterday. What we think today influences what happens to us tomorrow. Our entire lives are products of our mind.
Consider humanity is being manipulated to create and support the New World Order. The more fear and negative emotions that are created, the more the New World Order gains control the world.
We are the only ones that can change it. We are over 7 billion strong. We can begin our journey by being kind, loving and and compassionate to our follow man and not living in fear. Whatever you have in your heart and mind, you will become.
One positive aspect of the Pandemic coronavirus (COVID-19) may be that many people are beginning to realize the world is not as it seems and the physical and spiritual worlds are inseparable. When there’s such an attempt to generate fear by the media based on COVID-19, one has to pause and look for answers. Normal routines that we have taken for granted such as religious assemblies, sporting events and other public gathers have been put on hold. We are living a historical moment, perhaps the most spiritual moment, to understand how our thoughts, emotions and actions are creating our reality and how it can and has controlled the masses.
People can use this event as a catalyst and decide to either to live in fear or to live in love. People of all walks of life, regardless your Christian, Jewish, Muslim, Hindu, Buddhist or Atheist, we are all one people living on earth to learn the ways of love and wisdom. Perhaps this is our time to unite and support one another.
A good example of support is the people of Italy. The streets of Italy has all but ceased, but Italians aren’t letting fear of this pandemic keep them from one of the simplest joys in life, music.
Another example is China carbon dioxide levels have dropped drastically showing show Mother Earth is repairing herself because businesses, cars and planes are minimizing the pollutants they create.
These are just a few positive examples that we do not hear from mainstream media.
The panamedic can be used as a catalyst to either live in fear or to live in love and compassion while helping others. Consider the language of the Divine Matrix is humanity’s thoughts, emotions and actions. We all have free will to choose our own paths, not only affecting ourselves but those around us.

The signs we receive from our guides will be unique to each person. It is important to recognize the polarity, positive and negative entities providing messages. The key is to pay attention. For those who are seeking the truth the signs may be more noticable. Common signs would be dreams, numerology ringing or buzzing in the left or right ear.
I had two dreams I will share with you. I have been seeking the truth for quite some time. For two nights in a row, I had the same dream, it was simply a tune that sounded faintly familiar, but no lyrics. It was driving me crazy so I started listening to songs and two days later finally found it, Lonesome Loser.
Another dream was a woman wrapped up like a mummy, limping and walked to me and said, this is what love does to you. Both dreams were talking about love and how it hurts.
Numerology is a common sign, 111, 222, etc, are considered wake up calls. It is a language of its own and eventually, if you pay attention, you begin to understand.
Nature is a big thing for me. An Eagle flying over and a white dove sitting on my house which I have never seen before. Owls and hawks being more active during some of my thoughts. While in the garden,contemplating and wondering if I am on right track, I would see a dragonfly until I had my answer and then it would disappear. Tones in the left or right ears during my thoughts occur often. Again, these are just some of my signs that I have experienced.
Our thoughts create our emotions that may result in action. That is why it is important to have love and compassion in your heart and a little wisdom does not hurt. Our guides are just trying to keep us straight during our life journey. Discernment will help you to determine the polarity of the signs you receive. Remember, pay attention and you will realize the world is not as it seems.
