Are you feeling down—with every day of this current coronavirus pandemic? Do you feel bad because you’ve lost so much?
With so much stress and even people hoarding supplies, where is the hope?
That hope is you.
Keep pure your highest ideal; strive ever toward it; let naught stop you or turn you aside. –Doreen Valiente, writing in the voice of the Goddess in The Charge of The Goddess
In this time of stress and fear, we need to take this quote to heart. The good in us will prevail when we stick to our faith.
Here are four things we can do toward keeping to our highest ideal:
- Focus on the Truth
Remind yourself of the truth that you are really connected with the Gods. The Gods placed Their Divinity within you. Additionally, be careful about keeping your word. If you say you will call at a certain time, be sure to do it. You’ll feel better. With people trusting you, you’ll support your relationships.
- Dedicate Your Efforts and Time to the Gods
Devote a certain time each day to your relationship with the Gods. Even if you only devote a 5-minute meditation session each day, it is still valuable. If you decide to do a brief ritual every two days, that helps, too.
Your dedication to the God and Goddess is key. Perhaps, do rituals in which you provide an offering and in which you celebrate what blessings the Gods are bestowing on you and others. I realize that broadcast news and social media concentrate on all the losses. I remind myself to take time and devote effort to focus on what I’m grateful for.
- Serve Others
Even while you’re sheltering in place (at home), you can serve others. You could simply listen to a friend in a phone conversation. That’s serving. It’s essential. It is a genuine human-to-human connection. I remember that Christopher Reeve, while paralyzed and in a wheelchair, taught his youngest son, Will, how to ride a bicycle only using his words.
Words and the positive tone of your voice can serve the person you talk to—on the phone.
Just today, my family ordered pizza (to be delivered) to help a local restaurant stay in business.
We all help in many, small ways.
- Maintain your identity as a person who spreads love and compassion
Many witches I know demonstrate compassion. This means a lot to me. As you go through your day, do what you can to spread kindness.
May these ideas support you during this tough time.
