When I arrived, the 'door' was open,
I just could walk trough….
When I tried to close the beam,
it was not possible…..
The coronavirus is like this 'door'....
it helps us to get to the other site in an easy way.
Not our way, 'the control way',
the way that 'seems' to be best for us,
but the way that we don't understand….yet...
The way that is probably best
'in the long run'...
We like to stop this virus, however....
it is not that easy....
WE have to take responsibility.
Not only by washing our hands
and social distancing,
by looking inside.
What 'virus' is still inside of us,
that we can not let go yet.
The 'virus' that let us believe
'to do all'
'to prove ourselves',
not believing and realising
that we are all One.
When Uranus went into Taurus,
nature would be important,
'safety' in our self would be important,
grounding and slowing down would be important.....
Now we get 'help'.
Parents get time with there kids
and.....most of the time
it is more challenging then they thought it would be.
Couples have to work at home,
be together 24/7 and.....
mirror each other:
Will there be a babyboom after 9 months
or a divorce tsunami....;-)
People who hate the job they are in
get all of a sudden
time to think what they really want
realise they are only in it for the money
can make a conscious decision:
stay or chance this.
Teachers, Nurses, doctors,
NOW people know how important they are:
will they remember this after the crisis?
We also realise that appearances
are not so important.
To be healthy,
that is the key.
Hairdressers, beauticians, sports clubs….
are all nice and...
not nr. 1.
-I cut my own hair...it looks ok,
till you look closer, so I am glad
when all this is over I can ask my
hairdresser to make it right again ;-)-
We are all walking
towards a future
that is unknown.
Walking over 'troubled water',
accepting our emotions and
decide to just walk on....
step by step.
We also know that nature shows us
that there is always a spring again,
a new beginning.
We 'just' have to be patient.
There are big differences
in how people deal with this all.
I see family's being bored and angry,
and family's dancing.
I hear about family's hurting
because a loved one passed away
because someone got an illness
because they couldn't be together.
I also see family's connecting
Knowing that we are all close,
even if we can not touch each other
at the moment.
How is it with you?
Can you see 'the open door'
or do you want to close it.....
Can you accept it the way it is or
do you want to keep control....
even though you see, feel and realise
that it doesn't work...
Can you look back
and be grateful for challenging situations in your life?
I can….and it helps.
When I saw my brother got killed by a car accident,
I couldn't see why….
as a 10 year old,
I wanted to know why….
I had to wait till I was almost 40 to see
'the silver lining'...
When I got cancer
as a mother of 3 young children,
I couldn't see why...
I decided to go within
and listen to my inner voice….
and I changed….
Knew that Jaap and I
with whatever would come on our path.
When my parents died within 11 weeks,
I didn't know why...
I only Knew
that that is why I had to be in Holland.
When our house burned down,
I didn't know why,
I knew there was a reason...
After that, I realised
that although we lost material memory's
we still had them in our hearts
and in the pictures that were saved.
Most important: we had each other.
When my sister decided not to live anymore
and family patterns became clear,
I didn't know why...
Now I know,
it was to help us all
to learn to love our selves
and set boundaries.
When we had to leave the middle east
earlier then we thought,
and my brother decided not to live anymore as well,
I realised that again.
I was being 'helped'......
I didn't know how and why,
but I learned from past experiences.
that letting go of people
can be a choice
for living people as well.
Sometimes people don't belong in our lives
even though they are still living.
Now the coronacrisis.
We get time....
Time to go inside,
stay in 'your house'.
For me it feels like
Ramadan in the middle east…..
-I even had the feeling
I couldn't take a mint in the car to eat…..-
a time to go inside.
Aren't we lucky
to live in a time of social media,
so we can keep in contact with all our loved once
we get a chance to
what to see and read,
check, double check
if there is fake news.
For all the people who are sad and hurt
I send lots of love:
it must be very hard for you all.
I hope you realise soon,
that you are much stronger then you thought
I hope that the pain makes you stronger,
and that you will never forget your loved ones.
Those memory's will always stay,
they will be the fuel/roots for the future.
It will take time.
start being grateful
like after winter,
there will be a spring....
White feathers are everywhere...
Be the change you want to see in the world...
blooming takes time,
look for the first positive signs..
