Every aspect of this world needs healing at one time or another, yet some events show signs of becoming worldwide crisis. We can send healing for those facing the crisis in China. We can offer prayers with hope that further damage is mitigated or averted.
I’ve watched the Wuhan Coronavirus outbreak, renamed COVID19, waiting to see if the virus dies out naturally. It’s spreading more widely throughout the world though. Some areas appear more protected than others, for now, from severity and fatality.
Please also see my update: “Healing a Viral Crisis – Part 2 “
In addition to your regular spiritual practices such as meditation and Kriya Yoga, you can also benefit from the following techniques, keeping your mind full of healing light. Use this affirmation from Scientific Healing Affirmations, by Paramhansa Yogananda to surround yourself with a protective aura and send healing light within and around every cell of your body:
My body cells are made of light,
My fleshly cells are made of Thee.
They are perfect, for Thou art perfect;
They are healthy, for Thou art Health;
They are Spirit, for Thou art Spirit;
They are immortal, for Thou art Life.
Try to keep your mind focused at the spiritual eye throughout the day. Yogananda said that the more we can do this, the faster we will grow spiritually. He offered a mantra to say while we do so: “Aum, Christ, Bliss” or, alternatively, “Aum, Spirit, Bliss.” Repeating this mantra calmly and mindfully helps me keep my mind uplifted at the spiritual eye for longer periods during the day, as well as in quiet moments before offering healing prayers. See if it helps you too.
Besides practicing good hygiene, there are other things you can do to help your body be strong enough to fight off infections. In Yogananda’s day, there were only relatively few known “supplements” but he did recommend some. One was cod liver oil, somewhat surprising because he advocated a vegetarian lifestyle. But cod liver oil is a dependable source of both vitamins A and D, helpful in fighting viruses.
Dr. David Brownstein, in “Corona Virus: What To Do,” discusses modern-day use of vitamins A, C and D to fight viruses. I put his information to use during a recent bad cold and found it helpful. Sticking with the tried and true source, you could go for NOW brand “extra strength” cod liver oil capsules. The taste is mild enough that both my grandchildren took it when I asked, “Who wants some of the magic oil that Yogananda said helps kids to get better?” My granddaughter, age five, held out her hand, took a large capsule, chewed it up and asked for more. My grandson, seven, had one, too, without complaint.
Yogananda advocated consciously drawing sunlight’s energy into the body as a powerful source of healing. See Divine Will Healing for more on this.
Prayers for the World
Some situations are complex and often it’s not fitting to simply pray, “Make it stop.” Sometimes deeper world healing happens through global crises or effects of mass karma, but even then I find my heart reaching out in prayer to the suffering in midst of that karma.
I also try to pray for the bigger picture. I’ve wondered whether the current China crisis will serve ultimately to soften a political system that has lacked in compassion and human rights. Although China has come a long way, I found myself praying for the spiritual freedom and upliftment of the country. I prayed to Divine Mother in the form of Kuan Yin and our line of Gurus to bless China, that it throw off the chains of communism’s atheism.
Kuan Yin is one of the most beloved and popular Eastern divinities. A physically and spiritually beautiful Chinese goddess of mercy, compassion and protection, her name means, “She who hears prayers.”
Divine Mother hears every prayer sent her way.
I pray also for all other nations that they are protected from the scourge of this virus.
Please send your prayers for all souls to awaken in Divine Light. Share your thoughts and questions with us below. We all learn from each other.
Blessings to All,
PS: UPDATES will occasionally be added here:
- Some known dietary antivirals are raw, fresh ginger, and oregano oil. Dosages are unclear but they can be used as part of a healing regimen when hit with a virus. I like Biotics Research ADP oregano oil when I can find it. I understand that some people double or triple the doses (spreading them out) for short periods when fighting a viral infection. I keep it in the cabinet, just in case. It is not a daily supplement, it can be used for up to 3 weeks, then a break is to be taken. I’m posting all this because medicine offers so little to counter viruses and because 80% of our pharmaceuticals or their ingredients are made in China. So with quarantines, combined with a global pandemic, a supply line problem may emerge.
