“We are here to awaken from the illusion of our separateness.” ~ Thich Nhat Hanh

With Easter weekend approaching, you may be feeling sad that you won’t be able to spend it with friends or family doing the things you would typically do during the long weekend.  I too will miss painting eggs with my grandson and enjoying a yummy meal with my family.

So now it’s time to get creative!

What would a virtual Easter look like for you?

You could eat your Easter dinner together via Facetime, Skype, or Zoom.  You could watch your grandchildren online while they look for hidden eggs or whatever ritual you would normally do together. You could hang colourful pictures of Easter eggs or bunnies on your windows or doors to lift the spirits of your neighbourhood.

You could spend the day calling friends and family to wish them well.  In fact, I’ll bet that this Easter will be one of your most memorable because it will be so different.  And you’ll look back on this time in history and say, wow, those were crazy times, but we not only survived them, we are actually more connected now than before the crisis.  This is what I mean.

Because each one of us has been impacted in some way, you are likely feeling like your world has been turned upside down.  What used to be the norm, is no longer.  I believe this is an opportunity to create new ways of operating and connecting with others.

Because we are social beings, we crave human connection.  And since we aren’t able to be physically as close as we once were with friends and family, meaningful conversations on the phone, through letters or online is more important than ever before.  A text doesn’t quite cut it anymore.

Now is the time to really reach out to others, to people we are close to and to others who you might not be in regular contact with.  Pick up the phone and check in with them.  But refrain from complaining.  Keep the conversations positive and encouraging. I guarantee they will be glad to hear from you.

Because we are all connected on an energetic level, I believe we all have a responsibility to be beacons of light for one another. That’s how we will collectively get through this and shine more brightly on the other side.

Love from your Joy Mama,
