What does comfort mean to you? Comfort in your being? Comfort in your place? Comfort in your world? Comfort in your relationships?
Covid-19 has made us all so much more aware of the need to feel safe and comfortable. It has been a trying, testing time for so many and just as we get used to one rule, another comes along to contradict it! So often, the rules don’t make any sense. You must wear a mask in the supermarket but not the pub or restaurant. Truth is, it’s uncomfortable to have to wear a mask at all for most of us.
My husband is a care assistant in our local hospital, he has to wear a mask sometimes for 12 hours a day. As you can imagine, this takes him completely out of his comfort zone but the rule of the hospital is to save lives and so, reluctantly he complies.
Instead of travelling abroad this we decided to take advantage of our caravan; a week in Devon and a week in Cornwall. Of course, August is not really the best time for English weather, to our surprise and shock we had to live through two hurricanes. The first week in Totnes we had two days of Storm Ellen and then a week later in St. Ives we had to endure Storm Frances. As you can imagine our caravan was rocking from side to side all night in Devon, so by the time we got to Cornwall I had got used to coping – I felt so sorry for all the people in tents. Overnight, five tents around us had either split in half or leaked so much water their owners ended up sleeping in their cars. Bless them, it must have been really uncomfortable! The best day was a day trip to the Isles of Scilly – we had perfect weather conditions, the sun shone all day. It was the highlight of our holiday and one that we will always remember.
Those people working at home are actually more likely to be comfortable than the rest of us. Surrounded by their home comforts, without the confines of company policy and social distancing must be easier than having to face public transport and waiting for the lift to take you to a space that simply isn’t as it was before lockdown. My daughter is quite happy working from her spare room whilst her husband works in another room downstairs and they seem to manage well with two young children. My brother -in-law’s company has even paid for a lovely brand–new desk, chair and computer – everything he needs to work from home.
Of course, being under each other’s feet all day has caused some people’s relationships to suffer during this difficult time on the planet. Perhaps this can be helped by trying to understand each other and being positive rather than wallowing in negativity. It’s a perfect opportunity to rekindle the love that was once there. Other relationships have grown much stronger with the passing of time.
Looking ahead a little, is it possible that companies wanting to save on business rates, premises, travel, petrol and parking will encourage, perhaps even insist that staff work from home?
Zoom has been my salvation; my healing and clairvoyant sessions, workshops and most recently, my weekly meditation group mean I am able to connect with so who live miles away from my home on the Sussex coast. How wonderful! I highly recommend meditation to help you through the day; if you are struggling, feeling stressed, anxious or even depressed – there are so many to choose from online and it really does work, especially for those alone, or with mental health problems.
Meditation helps people receive clarity, inspiration, healing, to feel harmony, to unblock and release old energy, to feel joy and have magical days. It also helps people to believe in themselves and to be empowered, to learn how to be abundant and manifest, to be heart centred and achieve balance and grounding.
In these challenging times we can only trust in the divine plan and purpose for all. It’s time to ‘Let Go’ of the old energy as unaddressed wounds from the past can often continue to cause us harm in the present. Working with angels and energy helps clear the shadows of the past – something anyone can accomplish with ease and grace.
Welcome in the new energy, welcome in the New Earth the New Golden Age. In fact, when you shine your light on the dark shadows of your life, you will discover that the past is not nearly as big or overwhelming problem as you thought.
Please consider visiting my YouTube channel Temples of Golden Light and join in one of weekly free meditation sessions, every Sunday 10am. I work with the Angelic realms, Ascended Masters and Archangels, and my work with the many Temples of Golden Light – all of total love and golden light. I’ve been happy and comfortable working from home for many years.
I smile as living life is so precious and uniquely special to each and everyone of us.
