This is a blogcast around what we can do to better our immune systems; a holistic view of the current drama unfolding around the corona virus.
This is the first time that human culture is experiencing a wide-spread infectious disease and reacting to it in such a collectively intimate way. Which is powerfully metaphorical, in that our immune system also has a collective intimacy to it: we have a collective well-being, in how we are interconnected and interdependent as families, as communities, and globally.
So what can we do to build a strong foundation of vitality, so as to deal with – not only the virus, should it visit us, but – the multi-levels of challenge that come with lock-downs, quarantining, the extensive fear-based tension and reactivity that is going on around us?
It’s vital that we recognise, fear negatively impacts the immune system – as do myriad other aspects of a ‘normal’ modern life.
Fortunately, this challenging time also brings many riches – if we’re willing to relax into them – starting with this gift of slowing down, stopping, looking deeper, getting a more full perspective.
Now is a rare opportunity to actually take stock; to think about what we’re doing to ourselves, to each other, in the world. This could very possibly bring about a massive awakening of consciousness, as we realise what our individual and collective health (or lack of it) tells us.Tweet
For example, many of us are realising that mainstream and conventional medicine don’t have the answers, and in fact might be causing more problems than they’re resolving…
It’s an intense transition to make, from having trusted a particular approach to understanding and treating our bodies, and believing in the structures, institutions and funding streams that support that approach. It takes huge courage and effort to change our collective direction on such a fundamental level.
Our ability to adapt and evolve, to move through the world whilst breathing it in, digesting it, breathing it out… our very ability to survive has a great deal to do with our immunity, which is essentially our very relationship with all things.
