Bach Blog: A Lighthouse in the stormy seas of Covid-19
The beam of the light house moved slowly through its circle, calling our attention to the hazards beneath the turbulent waves of the stormy sea. The light house could be considered ‘an angel of the sea’ as it flashes its warnings of dangers lurking in the dark water below.
We have been living through a ‘storm’ for the last four months. And Just as you couldn’t see the treacherous rocks in the stormy sea; you’ve not been able to see the invisible killer – Covid-19. And that makes it terrifying!
The dark stormy sea is like our mind sometimes and our fears and anxieties, our pain and blame are similar to the rocks lurking below. And it’s these ‘rocks’ that are stopping us from living a happy and fulfilling life.
Lifting Lock-down The world is now beginning to lift some of the restrictions that we’ve been under for the past four months.
Lock-down. At first. we went into panic about being able to get enough food and fuel. Do you remember the panic-buying of toilet rolls? (Looking back, how strange was that?) But now we’ve settled into a routine of social distancing and some have become quite content with ‘self-isolating’. In fact, they’ve got used to having a quieter and simpler life.
For others, lock down as been a traumatic period and for others, its been a blessing.
And now, the lifting of lock-down has brought some ‘rocks’ to the surface.
Will life get back to normal?The regulations seem to change so quickly now, how will you keep up?

A thought before closing…I hear a lot of people saying they’re longing to “get back to normal”. I really hope we don’t go back to our old ‘normal’ – as we were before Covid-19. We had been ruining our poor earth with aircraft, factory and car pollution: we’ve been killing our oceans with our plastic waste and destroying our forests, the very thing that creates the air of our planet. No, I hope we don’t go back to the ‘old normal’.
However, I know we can create a ‘new normal’ and create a world where we respect our planet and all her people: where we live from love and not fear.Every healed negative emotion uncovers a positive aspect of love. Using the Bach Flower Remedies to help you through daily life will bring you happiness, success and fulfilment – and contribute to a ‘new normal’ and a healthier planet.Much love to you all.

And if we can take responsibility of our own healing, that will be a huge contribution to a better life for us all.So please do write and let me know your thoughts.Much love
