Metaphorical aspects of Covid-19 for the individual

Covid-19 – here are symptoms specific to virus and from “cytokine storm” along with interpretations from energy medicine and a homeopathic approach to managing if any of these are off in you. See what resonates. Consider being willing to accept ‘life on life’s terms’.


1)what do you lose by being sick (ability to participate, separation, etc)

 2) what do you gain (attention, peace and quiet, “you” time, etc)

 3) other silver linings (usually take up to two years to fully manifest)

Here are the coronavirous symptoms in order of their common first appearance along with a homeopathic activity that reproduces the symptom (..). Select one or two of these activities if they appeal to you.

I’m also referencing a book that resonates with many as being helpful to them or was for me. Use, meaning listen to, your intuition to find an activity that makes sense to you too!

Unlike modern western medicine, which embraces an Aristotelian principle ‘A, can not be, not-A’, traditional Chinese medicine reflects that “yin” and “yang” produce each other and everything alive has dualism. Imbalances of organs, organ function, especially in metaphysical terms, are the seat of all chronic dis-eases motivated by emotional stickiness in terms of the whole, including the “not-A”. (Emotions keep our minds engaged, drama is essential for living and growth. They are normal and essential. The hormones and chemicals responsible for them can be over- or under- active. Usually because of being ’fed’ (used and facilitated) too much or too little.)

When you are in a safe or more relaxed space, perhaps on your mat or zabuton, consider the situation and spiral out- 

Take an eagle’s perspective- will this really matter in a day, month, or year from now? Yes, someone may be ‘sicker’ than you, people are human, we all have flaws keep in mind there is a looking glass.

Do your astrology chart

”Emotional sobriety”, AAGrapevine.

Meditation helps to settle emotions, especially in response to drama keep most “flares” going.

[Homeopathy, which I could never wrap my mind around, is exactly the same with its intention]

It’s all about belief that your body can and will always heal into its energetic template of spirit, even if the body won’t or can’t go there anymore.

If you can accept, at a visceral level, that there is a power greater than yourself, someone or something that has more of what you feel you’re lacking, and are willing to accept life on life’s terms, surrendering to your symptoms will help you find ease during these transitions.

Everything being inter-related, by 6 degrees of separation, it does matter what you do and how you do it. The more we can resonate authentically with the good in our moment, the easier life will seem and amazingly this will lift and help others around you and in interconnectedness of the quantum field.
