I can name 20-30 virus off the top of my head right now, that are alive & well, living amongst us to this day – & deadlier. But you don’t see most of us freaking the fuk out in the way that we are carrying on like with this COVID-19, why is that?
It’s because of good marketing.
Here’s my point: viruses are not our enemies. Actually they’re our allies that help us evolve & get stronger as people.
Without viruses, our immune systems wouldn’t have any resistance with which to workout. Think of viruses as good workout partners. In fact, we need each other in order to survive. We need them as much as they need us.
Without people who are fertile ground for viruses to inhabit, they literally have no home in which to reside. Things like weakened immune systems, being overweight, malnutrition, decreased protein (Kwashiorkor), excessive sugar consumption, increased acidity, decreased fiber & fearful thinking are some environments viruses thrive on.
Conversely, we need viruses in order to build our immune systems so we can continue to grow & develop as a species. It’s survival of the fittest. That’s how we find out who will represent future generations … the ones who figure out how to adapt & improvise while experiencing all sorts of viruses & pandemics along the way.
Let this post serve as a mental adjustment instead of a physical one. Allow this to shift your relationship with viruses in a powerful way.
When we adjust our relationships to viruses, our nervous system literally shifts in the way it behaves. By simply shifting your thinking about viruses to them being an ally rather than an enemy, our nervous system response shifts from fear (which they thrive on) to respect.
Don’t get me wrong, just because viruses are our allies, does not mean they are to be disrespected. Quite the contrary: they are to be treated with the utmost respect, worthy of being studied in order to understand their particular tendencies, for which we can then account for.
Like anything in life, including with viruses, when you adjust your relationship to it, you begin to notice that thing starts to change.
