Tsunami came we suffered but moved on, Floods came we overcame it, Vardha came we did not let it blow us away, now Corona is here let us do our bit by staying home, being aware and considerate and staying positive that this too shall pass.

Practice the following while everyone is facing the crisis together:

Don’t tell the Universe what you don’t want! Instead tell it what you want!

Affirmations for protection against Corona virus:

We will be well and we are going to face it with unity.

Everything is going to be fine
I have enough will power and my body has enough strength to fight against any disease.

I am blessed and will see through difficult times.
All is going to be well.
Don’t panic, be calm.

Affirmations are auto suggestions we give to ourselves.

Keep repeating these sentences after waking up and before going to bed.

Let us raise our vibrational levels,
What we focus on we grow.

Most importantly, please stop sharing any information on Covid on WhatsApp. Stop conversing about it all the time. It is all available everywhere if anyone wants to know.

Instead resolve today to do this. Keep the WhatsApp group clean. Let us delete all previous messages in the group and start fresh.
