This is going to be a very tumultuous time coming up here and it is already ramping up. Whether you believe the vaccine works or doesn’t work, should be used, or should be banned, it really doesn’t matter. The fact is that deaths are increasing. Whether they are from the virus itself or from the vaccine, it doesn’t really matter when the fact is that death is the end result.
You are going to lose people you are friends with and even those you love.
No matter what this time frame in history isn’t going to be easy. But realizing two things I think can soften the blow a bit.
We are not our bodies. These human suits are just temporary vessels. We are energy. We are spirit. We are eternal. Just because someone “dies” doesn’t make them “dead”. It makes them gone on the earth plane. We grieve their loss because to us it is a loss. We don’t get the pleasure of their presence any longer. We miss them. It hurts our hearts. Its natural to miss them and be sad and upset, but know that they on a spirit level, are ultimately ok.
We all have our own path. Not everyone is supposed to make it through this. Not everyone chooses to on a soul level. Honestly, I can’t really say I blame them. I know this sounds harsh and or just plain weird, but when we come to this place, we incarnate with a plan. We agree to the life lessons. They are ours and ours alone and not everyone will understand them. That is ok.
What can we do that may help?
Love fully. Appreciate people NOW and show them love and appreciation. Leave nothing unsaid between yourself and anyone.
Practice non-attachment – This is a confusing one and takes practice to master. Love, unconditional means understanding even when it doesn’t suit you. Love doesn’t die when a person does. Attachment is possessive. Love is freeing. Love people as they are and respect their choices even if you completely and totally disagree with them to a fault so long as their choices do not harm or threaten you. Being non-attached, no matter how much you love someone, makes it easier to let go.
Buckle up and hang on to your britches – this is going to be one hell of an interesting time. Stay strong in what you believe, fear nothing, fear no one, stand up for yourself and others. This life is just an illusion anyway and we are all being tested.
This won’t make sense to or resonate with everyone and that is ok. Sarah
Mr. Pooh had been adopted at the age of 6 after him and his brother both were left to fend for themselves when their owner, a little old lady, had died. They were in the apartment with her until she was found, they think several days. It was clear by their condition that she had not been able to really take good care of them for some time.
I had seen Pooh online on Petfinders.com, and at the time could not take two dogs. I wrote to the shelter and told them “If you are unable to place them together, I would really like to adopt the little red one.” I heard nothing back until one day three months later when I got a phone call which stated that his brother had been adopted and Pooh was sitting alone in his cage and had been for a month and did I still want him.
Of course I did.
I drove from Tampa all the way to Miami to pick him up. He was the cutest little mess I had ever seen. No one wanted him because he was in such bad shape. His eyes were totally crusted over, as he had severe dry eye and was mostly blind from lack of care, no hair on his back end because of mange and previously fleas, he was skinny as he had not eaten well. But beyond all that was the cutest little soul I had ever seen. I fell in love instantly. The staff seemed relieved and happy that I still wanted him when I saw him in person.
He had no idea how to walk on a leash and he really could not see where he was going.
Over time, with lots of love, care, good food and medical care he became one of the cutest happiest little creatures I have ever seen. Everyone who met him fell in love and the people who said “THAT’S the dog you picked?” finally could see what I saw in him.
We spent 10 wonderful years together.

After a weekend out of town, I came home and walked in the door as usual, said “Hi Lil’ Pooh!” and looked down. He didn’t move, and looked like he was sleeping. I bent down, and nudged him… Nothing… “Pooh?” I rolled him a little.
His eyes were totally crusted over, worse than I had ever seen… He moved a little. I cleaned out his eyes and he blinked at me. “Oh, poor lil pooh!” I said and kissed him on the forehead. He was very hot. Then I realized he wasn’t really moving.
I kept talking to him and rubbing him, but he seemed like he was paralyzed. I scooped him up and went to the ER Vet. Half way there he started trying to stand up. He was very wobbly, shaky and hot. They did x rays and blood work….. He had a mass/tumor in his chest pressing on his heart if not in it. It was also pressing against his esophagus which was shoved over at least 2 inches off of where it should have been. He had a bad infection and an inoperable mass.
They tried to send me home with me with antibiotics to see if we could clear the infection. I sat with him, and he was shaking, and hot and falling over…. I cried and talked to him and tried my best to comfort him, but he just looked so frail.
I couldn’t make him go on. I sat and hugged him and told him he wouldn’t have crusty eyes, or aching hips, or itchy skin or any pain anymore and that he would be free. He looked right at me and I know he understood. He was a smart little dog who understood English when he chose to.
Josh, my ex and best friend, called and said goodbye to him on the phone and pooh kissed the phone and then kissed me. They had already put the catheter in his little leg, and it was wrapped in a snazzy red bandage. I held him in my arms and they gave him the injection. I stroked his little fuzzy head and told him to go to sleep and he would feel better….He looked peaceful, then went limp. …….
Interestingly………..The tech at the ER clinic says “Oh my he looks just like my little dog who passed last month”….. After talking? I think it might have been Pooh’s brother Teddy! He was from the same rescue and right about the same time frame.
They thought I was a little nuts, but as I was so sad and upset they humored me. I asked them to weigh Pooh after he passed. I had seen studies that said the soul weighs 4 oz……… he weighed 3 oz. less than he had only 30 minutes earlier.
Right after he left his body my good friend Jen said that she saw white sparkles of light where Pooh used to sit in her house. The next night I heard his collar jingle in my kitchen. (His collar was in the car). So, the little fuzzy love of my life, though gone in physical form, and missed beyond what breaks my heart, is still around as a little lhasa spirit.
Looking back, I think he had been in the process of dying when I came home. I think he stuck around and managed to struggle back to life to say good bye to me, which I cherish and appreciate more than words could ever express. I love you forever Mr. Pooh Lhasa Apso. You came into my life and you changed me.
Thank you for being a part of my life little dog. I could never imagine it having happened without you.
Sarah & Her Lil Pooh

“Don’t cry because it’s over. Smile because it happened.” – Dr. Seuss
What? That can’t be right, you are likely thinking.
The methanol in aspartame affects the dopamine system of the brain causing addiction. Methanol, or wood alcohol, is classified as a severe metabolic poison.
Aspartame is a dipeptide molecule produced by joining phenylalanine and aspartic acid. Aspartame itself does not occur naturally but is a manufactured substance. When aspartame is consumed, it is completely broken down by the enzymes in the digestive system into the two amino acids and a type of alcohol called methanol.
What that means:
These have high abuse potential and severe psychological and/or physical dependence liability.
Yet the public has been encouraged to drink it because it has been marketed as a health product.
According to independent doctors and researchers, aspartame can cause a range of symptoms including but not limited to:
Worse, it cam mimic symptoms of diseases like MS, Lupus, ADD, Diabetes, Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s.
It can be dangerous to take with medications, has reactive properties when combined with MSG (mono sodium glutamate) which is found in tons of packaged foods, and will induce cravings for carbohydrates which often leads to weight gain.
So much for the myths of diet and or healthy!
*Best Advice: Never touch a food with aspartame in it again.
*Alternate Advice: If you don’t feel ready to give up diet drinks or foods but are having any of these symptoms try a 60-day aspartame free test and see how much your health improves.
