We need all the support we can get with COVID-19. Wherever you’re at with it – feeling the economic fallout, worried about getting sick, concerned about loved ones, or struggling with symptoms – there are resources here for you.
Below you’ll find three resources: A guided meditation to help boost your immune response, a grounding technique to help relax if you’re feeling anxious or having trouble sleeping, and a healing journey for people who are already showing symptoms of the virus.
Also check out this list of supplements and other immune supports that can help boost your immune system, with recommendations for each different stage of infection. These resources are informed by my own experience having COVID-19 in March/April of 2020 and my public health training, and my shamanic energy medicine training.
All of these resources are free. Please feel free to share them widely with anyone you know who might benefit from them.
1. Meditation to Strengthen Your Immune Response
This guided meditation is designed to reaffirm the strength of your entire body – from your cells to your lungs to your immune system. Our emotional state can affect our physical health, so feeling confident that you are strong and your body can defend itself is important.
If you’d like to repeat this meditation here is an audio file of just the meditation itself (no intro).
2. Earth Anchoring Exercise for Deep Relaxation
This technique known as “decoupling” in shamanic energy medicine circles is designed to de-activate the fight-or-flight response that can take over when we feel anxious. I like to think of this exercise as earth-anchoring, as it reconnects us with the rhythm of the earth and quiets the monkey mind.
If you have trouble sleeping, you can listen to this audio recording in bed. You will likely fall asleep more quickly and then rest more deeply during the night.
3. Healing Journey for People with COVID-19 Symptoms
This healing journey takes you to the domain of spirit where you visualize yourself entering a soul rejuvenation chamber where benevolent guides can help remove imprints of the virus. Please seek medical care if you have difficulties breathing or other symptoms of COVID-19.
If you are currently having mild to moderate COVID-19 symptoms I recommend repeating this journey every few days. The energies you remove will likely shift each time depending on the progress of the virus. You may use the audio file below to repeat the journey.
