We live in times of change on a scale that few of us can imagine. We know where we come from, but in a very short time the world has changed, and it will never return to what it was.
Whose fault is it? Depends on which social media you allow into your consciousness. Did the virus originate from an animal in a dirty Chinese market? Or was it planted in the market - or even in a few places - by the US government? Does the virus follow the footprint of 5G? Is it in fact not a virus, but rather your body’s reaction to 5G radiation?
And I am sure you can add to the list.
My question is: What can you do about any of those possible causes?
And the answer is simple: Nothing.
Does that leave you powerless?
On the contrary. It leaves every single one of us in a position of power that is mind-blowing.
Have you noticed that? Or are you inadvertently adding to fearmongering by spreading anything that relates to the situation, whether it is true or relevant or appropriate or not? If you are too quick on the Send or Forward button, here is a suggestion. You could spend time on doing your research on the internet and getting facts. Or even better, get off the internet as far as you can, and claim your power.
What does that mean: claim your power?
Remember how the Law of Attraction became everyone’s bible a few years ago? Even today there are still prophets around who sell expensive courses so that you can get rich/find the perfect partner/find your soulmate/do anything your heart desires overnight by just following what the course tells you - once you have made the financial dreams of the course creator come true.
Here is a but of truth that I will give you for free: The Law of Attraction works - but only together with a lot of elbow grease and focus.
There is a simple mantra that encompasses the Law of Attraction: What you think about and thank about, you bring about. It is that simple.
Think about what you want - and do it in detail and with an action plan. Say thank you and feel the gratitude for what you are about to receive. Then see how it materialises based on your action. Try it - dream your dreams, and then do what is needed to make those dreams reality. The more you do that, the more the Universe adds to the scale of your dreams, and the more materialises for you.
What does that have to do with the pandemic?
What are you thinking about? What do you allow to fill your mind? What do you focus on? That is what you bring about.
And the only way to get the future we all want, is to focus on that future rather than on the myriad of distractions that the media feed us.
I run a WhatsApp group that is meant to focus on gratitude ad give people hope. I want everyone to focus on the purpose of the group. You have no idea how I have my hands full sending fear and fearful posts and fearful attitudes away from the group - I spend a lot of time explaining what the group is about, and next another post jumps out (just like a virus) and I have to start again.
And no, I am not like an ostrich with my head in the sand. My view is that there are hundreds of groups and sites where there is a place for everything related to the pandemic, but my group is there to provide balance, by focusing on the amazing new world that is unfolding right under our noses.
What you think about and thank about, you bring about.
I choose to think about spiritual awakening, recognising the truth, and spreading Unconditional Love. That is the Law of Attraction in action.
What is your version of the Law of Attraction? What do you think about and thank about?
Millions of people all over the globe are house-bound and only allowed to go out for essential trips. Of course, I could write a book about the reasons for this, and whether the lockdown is justified or not. However, it is what is.
The more important question is what to do about it.
How do you react to change? Or how do you respond to change?
This is not just word play.
Reacting to change is a knee-jerk defense where your favorite alibi kicks in, and taking the wrong action or an inappropriate action. More about these alibis below.
Responding to change, on the other hand, means understanding that change is happening, assessing the change, and then thinking about it before acting to make the best of the change.
The world as we knew it no longer exists.
The political landscape is changing daily and we cannot always keep track. The more politicians mess up and take their own direction, the more we are required to take responsibility for our own lives.
It is easy to feel out of control and directionless. Our bodies react to the insecurity with all sorts of dis-eases related to fear and anxiety. At the same time medical resources are limited.
We all know that "things are happening" and we need to keep going. But how? Where do we find any security?
Elsabe will give some direction that will help you cope day to day, and carve out a future for you in this new world.

Over the past several years I have been challenged socially and financially. I have very limited resources and my mind seems focused on fears rather than on the future.
I am also worried that past mistakes and nasty people whom I have left behind will come back to haunt me.
How can I change my mind-set so that I can focus on the future?
This will be a short blog but it may turn out to be quite useful when you have to make a decision on the spot.
I am sure you have found yourself in a situation where you wanted to do something or make a business decision and you thought you had it right, but then you started doubting and your clear thoughts turned into scrambled eggs.
