After a year and a half of traveling to New York to care for my brother who suffered a stroke, exhaustion caught up with me and I put a pause on my regular ezine/blog posts and YouTube videos. I felt like he was saying the same thing over and over again.

I thought about starting again in February, but the coronavirus spread all over the world and it seems that it was in front. The first reported cases in the US were in the Seattle area in February, and I attended a large gathering at the Seattle Center on February 22. I then flew to New York City just as a single case was reported there. On March 1 I flew to Spain, and during the seventeen days there I was able to witness the city of Madrid go from being rarely casual about the outbreak (“there are only 400 cases in a city of 4 million,” to completely lockdown March 14. – People weren’t even allowed to go out to exercise. Just one person in a car. You could be fined 50-600 euros for being on the street if you didn’t go to buy essentials.

I flew back to New York on March 17 and went into self-isolation for 14 days. I thought I just had a cold, but now with better awareness of the symptoms I am convinced it was a mild version of COVID19. While in New York City, my sister-in-law developed much more recognizable symptoms, and I was there for a full month helping her recover and doing everything I could to keep my disabled brother from getting it.

I’ve been on Vashon Island since April 16 (I didn’t leave the house at all for the first 14 days) and I feel like I’m barely getting my head out of the water.

It’s been an intense few months and it’s not over yet.

Regardless of which city I find myself in, the fear is palpable every time I go out. I have been hesitant to give a spiritual perspective on what is happening, feeling that neutrality could be mistaken for being disconnected or in denial. Also, if I’m so good at what I do, why am I in this parallel Universe? Why haven’t I changed, fixed or tampered with this hologram?

Here’s the thing: this is all part of the Consciousness shift. What is falling apart, what is disintegrating in our lives, either physically or emotionally, is due to a greater Consciousness being formed.

Now I used to resist the pessimists who said, ‘not everyone is going to make it.’ And yet, wow, we’re seeing a huge number of deaths in a short amount of time. But one way to look at it is that there is no death, our loved ones have just left their physical forms for the loving embrace of a greater Consciousness. There is nothing good or bad about dying or the amount of time you spend in a lifetime in physical form. Also from my “5D” perspective, there are parallel universes where their bodies are still alive. And as Consciousness we are always connected, whether we are together in body or not.

My interpretation of “5D” is not that we are all going to change, one of my favorite astrologers thinks that means death. What I have found is that as I experience myself as a Greater Consciousness entering my body more, my reality feels lighter and more fluid. Time is malleable. Grounding is different. Physical reality is less dense. It’s like going from dial-up to Wi-Fi.

As a Conscience, I am totally okay with what is happening, even when my personality rages against it. It is not about superimposing a rosy vision on what is. It’s more like watching a city, a neighborhood, or a world go through an upgrade. Telephone poles are torn down, sewers are dug up, slums are condemned.

At this point it is very evident that this is a world of opposites. The loudest and the weakest are in power, the old paradigms that they struggle so hard to continue to impose are vanishing. I see that what is emerging is a new internal sense of empowerment, that we are all inherently and uniquely valuable. As we expand our awareness, the old definitions of gender and sex are also fading away.

It’s not easy, and it won’t be over in a minute or a month, this transition will continue to unfold.

Some time ago, while playing in the waves on the beach, I learned not to turn my back on the ocean when a giant wave was coming towards me. Just jump through it to the other side. As these waves of change come towards us, face them, take a deep breath and immerse yourself in them. The reality will be much more fun on the other side.
