As a healthcare worker, I have the opportunity to get the Covid-19 vaccine. I am surprised at how fast this vaccine has arrived. So, now it means that I have to make a decision. I gave myself a few days to decide before I had to email the nurse manager my decision.
There are a lot of controversies around the experimental Covid-19 vaccine. I am not going to discuss them. I understand how vaccines work, so I am informed. But I also need to listen to my intuition (or gut feeling). I decided not to get the Covid-19 vaccine at this time. My main reason is that I am worried about immediate side effects (I have a shellfish allergy) and the long-term side effects. There are no long-term studies on this Covid-19 vaccine (it is not approved by the FDA). Once you get the vaccine, there’s no going back. Remember, everything is energy.
After I made my decision, I emailed my nurse manager. I felt relieved, and this is a good sign that I made the right decision. As a healthcare worker, I feel pressure to get the Covid-19 vaccine.
In my last blog post, I wrote about being a sovereign being. Ultimately no one can control me. With the arrival of the Covid-19 pandemic, the government has placed more rules and control on society. Humans need to “be in the world but not of the world.” As spiritual beings, life on this planet is a journey – not a destination.
There is light and dark in this world, just like the dualities of night and day. Right now, it’s of crucial importance to be the light in this world.
It’s easy to see negative things during this pandemic. However, there are some positive things too. One positive aspect is that you understand what is important in life. Also, you have an opportunity to go deeper within yourself. Let this unique opportunity crack you open and allow yourself to be who you are.
Be honest with yourself and be secure within yourself. It doesn’t matter if people judge you. You know who you are.
Ultimately, no one can control you. You are a sovereign being. Sovereign means possessing supreme power. If you are secure within yourself, then you know your power.
Dear Life (December 2020)
Oh dear life
I want to emerge from my shadow
Allow me to be me
To find beauty, laughter, and joy
Oh dear life
Show me the power of my being
Let me dance to the rhythm of my heart
Oh dear life
I taste moments of bliss
As the sun always shines
I turn my shadow around, and there I am
