Yesterday I was presented with an opportunity to further my spiritual work in a mainstream setting, something I’ve been fostering in the world for decades (for all healers, not just me!).
But there was a caveat, and for me, a big one.
I was required to get a mandatory flu vaccine. And I refused.
Now, before the barrage of insults or praise flies, I ask that you kindly read through my perspective.
I have spent the past several years believing and teaching the principle that we are not victims of anything.
Not victims of the government, our parents, circumstances, arguments, or disease. Everything we encounter, endure or experience is because we have chosen to do so for one of two reasons:
1) We are emotionally imbalanced and we draw similar vibrations to us (and often our bodies react)
2) We are choosing to have a spiritual awakening that is leading us to a greater understanding of ourselves and our purpose (and sometimes this includes our transition from this life).
That’s it. Believe it or not, it is all a choice to benefit us. You may not realize it…perhaps it is a soul choice or a subconscious choice, but it’s a choice nonetheless.
And I know it’s hard to understand why anyone would choose any difficult circumstance, but we do it all the time, me included. That’s what my work tries to do…help people be purposeful in their creation so they can do it from joy or passion and not out of trauma or catastrophe.
If you think back to a recent illness or circumstance that you say you were a victim of~ if you are honest with yourself~ you will probably see that one of these two scenarios fit.
So back to my flu shot perspective:
If no one is a victim of illness or disease, and everyone chooses their experiences for one of the above reasons, then my getting a flu shot is irrelevant.
In other words, if someone is meant to experience the flu (by choosing it), my vaccination will have no bearing on their experience.
Getting the flu shot means that I am buying into a victimhood mentality; believing that my immunity could alter another person’s experience (no one can alter your experience except YOU) or that my vaccine could alter whether I choose to experience it or not.
And I wasn’t willing to compromise my beliefs.
Now, will I stop you from vaccinating? Absolutely not. Will I promote vaccine information that may or may not be true? Nope. Those are all there to help you make your choices.
My request is that you consider spending as much time as possible working toward emotional balance for yourself and those around you. Listen to your gut, it’s your guidance. Don’t ignore your intuition. Understand that everything that “happens” to you is of your creation and you did it for a reason, a beneficial reason.
Then perhaps you won’t need to experience illness and disease in order to get the message. That is my hope for humanity and why I continue my work. For now, not in mainstream, but the time is coming…it’s coming.
