Time to Breathe? Potential Gifts from Corona Virus.

Virus Pandemic Indicates Global Conflict may be Resolving As the Corona Virus continues to cause fear and panic across the globe, governments are going to have to make decisions that involve considering the public health against economic interests. Governments will continue to say they are making decisions based on medical advice, but we should be under no illusion that this will be assessed against a background of governmental concerns which will be considering the implications of their Countries economic potentials after ‘shut downs’ and ‘closed borders’. Governments decisions will have huge impacts on businesses both Nationally and Internationally. Whilst governments have attempted (or hoped) to avoid taking measures that would slow down society norms around ‘business‘ and ‘economics’, it seems inevitable that this choice will become a requirement - later, if not sooner!

Time to ”Breath”

As air flights reduce and commuters stay at home, Cities and Towns across the Western World will become more akin to the ghost town we have seen Wuhan become. But amongst this prognosis for social upheaval and uncertain economics...There is an audible sigh of relief from the Earth herself as she gains a moment to ‘breath’ and recover from the never ending onslaught of Environmental Pollutants that make up the 24/7/365 nature of ’Business-as-usual’ that perpetuates across the Earths global markets.

In the last couple of days, NASA have released images of the immediate and significant effects on air pollution that Wuhans ‘shut down’ has caused. In a matter of just several days, the levels of Nitrogen Dioxide have dropped significantly. Firstly over Wuhan, then spreading out across a wider area of China as the Chinese authorities expanded their quarantine efforts.

What is amazing is the speed that the Earth has been able to adjust and respond to these significant events! It’s ability to recuperate and recover is simply astonishing!!


What else might be achieved if the whole (human) World, was enforced to ‘slow down’ their ‘business-as-usual’ activities?

Imagine the healing that the Earth might achieve if all that activity (that literally never ends) across the globe were to be reduced?

There is an irony that on one hand there are the sad and unfortunate 20% of infected individuals who are suffering from the worse effects of the Coronavirus - symptoms of which include great ‘difficulty in breathing’. Whilst on the other hand the Earth herself, as result of the virus, is receiving a much needed ‘breather’ from the never-ending human pollution of the air itself.

What might be the positives to this virus?

What if the Virus was forcing us, our governments, to take action? (Even if that action were to become less ‘activity’ based, and therefore less environmentally unsustainable). Governments and individuals are about to find themselves potentially having to ‘self-restrict’ (I prefer this to self-isolate), even when they/we don’t want to do so!

What if, instead of being a terrible disaster for humanity, this virus might be the opportunity we need to give ourselves permission to:

  • Stop the excessive buying and selling that underpins our economies?

  • Stay home and find alternative ways to maintain sustainable business models?

  • Focus our attention on what is best for the health and wellbeing of all people, and of humanity as a whole?

  • Make choices that benefit the whole of humanity, not just the elite and wealthy few?

  • Put the needs of the Planet first - taking time to recognise that the mass worry, fear and concern that this virus is creating is NOTHING compared to the fears and panic that WILL spread across the globe IF we continue to ignore the Global signs that we are receiving from the Earth herself: the UK has experienced overwhelming floods and Australia simultaneously experiencingIt’s worst ever catastrophic fires.

What if this virus - as much as it is being constantly feared and maligned - was offering humanity an opportunity to make those changes that we and our governing elite have not yet had the ability, the will or the strength to make!?

An MBD Approach

As an MBD, we look at the role of viruses in a very different way to the modern medical model. We consider the greater energetics and purpose behind mechanisms such as viruses and bacteria.

Yes, they have an impact on individual health, and we can look at the ‘themes’ and ‘root causes’ of those viruses and bacteria. Why they are involved in certain bio-logical responses that cause disease. And these awarenesses can provide insights for individuals to become self-aware to the root causes of their disease.

This provides individuals the opportunity to become ‘conscious’ of what their bodies are telling them. The signs of Disease may be providing them an opportunity to look past the ‘symptoms’ in order to become aware of the deeper evolutionary needs of the individual. The MBD model helps us to identify the difficulties we experience via the symptoms of our disease. This holds an opportunity for us to uncover our perso
