COVID-19 Quarantine – Week 2
Wednesday, March 25, 2020 – Day 8
My friends are all going through awakenings and it is awesome to watch! I love how I always feel ahead or behind each of them in growth, which is so cool because then we were able to walk each other through experiences and hold space.
This time during quarantine is just further launching my inward seeking, which is funny to say because I’ve actually been meditating less, but I’ve been practicing so much asana.
I wonder if this time of being forced inward, at home and in my body, will launch me into a vow of daily asana and meditation. I was told by a medium that now is the time to get organized, and I can see that, especially with yoga teacher training. I think I’m going to keep blocking off my calendar every few days. Maybe I do this on Mondays and Thursdays because Sunday’s I never really know anything that’s coming up yet. I feel tired. I have plenty of work…
It’s really easy to forget people are sick and dying if you stay busy all day and don’t watch the news…
Friday, March 27, 2020 – Day 10
Well shit got real yesterday. I got up like normal, did my morning routine, ate breakfast. Then I hit a wall. Emotionally, mentally, spiritually. I had terrible allergies too. I just couldn’t do anything. So I didn’t. I went back to bed and stayed there all day. I didn’t work. I didn’t meditate. I didn’t watch TV. I just turned on binaural beats and laid there. I fell asleep for a little bit. I had work to do. I had house chores to do. I just couldn’t, so I rested. Feeling guilty about it, but I did it anyway. Ultimately, it was glorious.
I feel so rejuvenated!! I got more work done today than I ever would have yesterday and it’s only noon. So please, world, listen to yourself when you need to rest. Your body and mind will tell you.
What I have learned so far from quarantine…
- I want to grow a garden
- I want to be more self-sustaining
- I want to slow down, even more
- I want children
- I want a slow life with children, food, family, life, love and yoga
- I want to do more things that are not dependent on people, man-made things, the internet
