A Spiritual Perspective on the COVID-19 Vaccine and Setting Intention for Healing with Medical Treatments
Vaccine time! I received my first dose of the Pfizer vaccine this week and I wanted to share some of my realizations and experiences with you. This decision was complex and unfolded over months for me but ultimately came down to a few realizations and thoughts which I'll share below....
*Disclaimer - this information does not constitute medical advice and you should always consult with your primary care provider before beginning or discontinuing any medical treatment or procedure.
Vaccines are a kind of mind-trip because it plays this trick on us:
We have to voluntarily and consciously choose to receive a medical intervention which may cause us side effects or a very slim chance of more significant issues versus the alternative which is that we could be potentially passively infected with COVID, in which case it's significantly more likely we will have a worse reaction and outcome.
The differing player here is choice vs. effect. When we CHOOSE a vaccine we are also choosing to accept side effects and risks, in some way it's almost a guarantee, but by not actively choosing it we leave ourselves open to the risk of being affected by the actual virus passively - meaning we didn't CHOOSE it, it just happened to us, it's 'not our fault' we got it when we were doing everything right. The mind-trick is in this choosing something that will likely cause some discomfort and potential harm seems so counter-intuitive, while leaving the option of being passively infected (with a significantly more likely chance of a worse outcome) feels a little 'safer' in some strange way because we aren’t actively making the choice.
Concerns around COVID vs the Vaccine
Am I personally concerned about getting super sick and dying from COVID?
Not really, but there's always a chance right? I am very concerned about the potential to spread it to others who could be at greater risk than me though.
Long COVID is the part of this disease that really concerns me the most and it happens in 20-70% of patients who get COVID... which means, while you will very likely survive, it's also very likely your life may be potentially significantly different afterwards. (Check out my recent blog post for more info and about how we treat this with Chinese medicine). The thought of potentially never being able to row again is one scenario that plays through my mind a lot.
So do I have some fear around COVD?
You bet. Fear is part of life and it's ok to have it, but it's also really important to recognize it and allow it. And you know what, it's also ok to make a decision out of fear too, that is literally part of life, don't let anyone belittle you into thinking you're somehow weak or less than for being afraid. Nothing bothers me more than all the people who are angry at people who are scared (seriously, get off your judgmental high horse), in what scenario does being angry at someone who's afraid help anything? NONE.
Am I concerned about side effects from the vaccine?
Yep. I have a history of having odd reactions to medical treatments so this was something that weighed heavily on me, but I ultimately have decided that this will be an exercise of surrender and trust.
So what was my experience like?
Physically, it wasn't too much of anything, a little injection site pain, a little fatigue, a little uptick in my anxiety just for good measure I suppose. Second day feeling a little nauseous as well but I did eat a questionable quesadilla for breakfast so who knows.
Now energetically this experience was a lot more than I expected.
Waiting in line I was aware of all of the light beings and the entities of the Casa de Dom Inacio who are healing entities that help with our physical and mental / emotional / spiritual healing. The energy was actually so strong that I could smell it, which is something that happens for me when there is a lot of activity around. While waiting I focused on holding my intention and communicating with my guides and the light beings around, it became more apparent that receiving this treatment was intended to be a big upgrade.
After receiving it the energetic shift was more than I expected, and while I waited to be cleared for allergic response I sat and did some of my energetic clearing work to start moving through it. I think the fatigue that's associated is not only the physical body system working but also the integration process of receiving the treatment. I feel very similarly to how I've felt after significant spiritual healing events or trips, a bit cautious and 'fragile' just a reminder to really be aware of the energies I'm consuming or being around and a deeper focus on going inward for healing. It feels like the integration for this shift will also be a bit longer than I anticipated, perhaps more like 2 months instead of just a few days.
A Spiritual Perspective on the COVID Vaccine - Expelling Myths and Concerns and Tapping into Truth
I do a lot of spiritual and personal growth work, and among this community I hear a lot of fear and anger about vaccinations, so it's certainly something I've looked a lot into. I don't see a lot of people posting on this aspect so here are my thoughts and answers to some common questions and concerns:
Truth: It's important to tune into the energy of the vaccine itself and the vaccine only.
When I was able to get down to this level I found the actual medicine to be very neutral. The layers of energy surrounding it however are anything but - the anti-vaxx, the pro-vaxx, the pharmaceutical company, the government etc. But the actual vaccine itself looked like a very neutral tool that's basically being wielded as a sword to push agendas in every direction.
Truth: Tune into the alignment of the vaccine for YOU as an individual
Once I could see the neutrality of the actual treatment I felt a lot more clear and able to tune in to if it was aligned for me to take. And that's really what it comes down to - you as a specific individual and if it's aligned for you - it literally doesn't matter what someone else chooses (nor should their choice influence yours - their life and body isn't yours)
My specific personal read on it was that it was very likely I would not get COVID, however the amount of mental relief having the vaccine would give me was well worth it.
Concern: The vaccine changes your DNA and / or the virus is actually an upgrade preparing you for 5D consciousness.
OK, there's a lot to unpack here.
First off, the vast majority of scientists agree the vaccine doesn't change your DNA, I believe this, but I also believe that this is a limited statement because it's more like 'it doesn't change your DNA as far as we can tell.' To that end, if a vaccine can change your DNA then so can a virus, so can a bacteria, and so can meditation and prayer - everything can make those shifts (again - I'm speaking to a level undetectable by modern science). In which case, if the virus and vaccine can alter DNA then I would personally prefer to choose the more controlled route of doing so with the vaccine than the more uncontrolled mechanism of being infected with COVID 19..
Concern: If I get the vaccine and don't get to upgrade to 5D and can't spiritually grow!
I call bullsh*t!
God / source / the divine / whatever you want to call it is not going to punish you for making a choice that is in alignment with the highest level of truth you were able to see for yourself at the time, or even if you weren’t able to see it clearly and made a choice from fear. We are allowed to make personal choices and we are allowed to make mistakes, this doesn't hinder your growth or potential, full stop.
It's also very important to note that this kind of 'vengeful God' dichotomy that is inherent in this idea is completely contradictory to the entire premise of 5D consciousness. 5D consciousness is all about inclusion and oneness, not separation and duality. This type of punishment style belief is very far removed from the true nature of 5D consciousness.
Myth: I have a high vibration therefore COVID cannot affect me because it only effects low vibration people.
While there is a kernel of truth here - people living at a high vibration tend to not attract lower vibration experiences, and most viruses do have a lower vibrational frequency, there is a lot of nuance and detail that is missed in this statement.
Most often the missed point is that for this to 'work' one must be living at a high vibration, not just experience a high vibration during some parts of the day or week. Church on Sunday or a 15 minute meditation is a wonderful thing, but it does not equate to living at high vibration consistently. Very few people actually fall into this category of truly living at this higher frequency, and this is because doing so requires a strong commitment and surrender to their personal growth, awareness and path. This is not to say that it cannot be done, it's just that it looks to be much more rare than one might initially think.
A second point here is that the simple act of gloating, bragging or touting that one lives at a high vibration, is actually in 5D consciousness etc, is inherently oppositional to the true qualities of those statements. Meaning - someone with true 5D consciousness or a high vibration has a much more expanded view of reality and neutrality than the average person and does not see the need to reinforce duality with this sort of exclamation. They simply ARE that consciousness, they have no need to tell you about it.
The final point here is that, even if you are living at a high vibration it may still be in alignment with your path to get COVID or any other illness. Perhaps the point of this pandemic for you may be to trust in receiving a vaccine even though you might not actually get the virus. No one is perfect in their walk on this Earth, even the most enlightened people. And sometimes we may actually create illnesses as a process for our learning and growth.
Truth: Participating in public health IS a spiritual act.
Vaccination and herd immunity requires public participation (same with mask wearing) - through this process we can literally save lives. By choosing to participate in public health you are providing a selfless act of love and compassion, you are looking out for the collective and not just yourself as an individual.. Let's be honest, we need a lot of this type of energy right now.
Truth: All medical treatments can be spiritual interventions, if we set and hold our intention for it.
We're used to getting healing treatments like acupuncture, reiki, etc as ways to elevate consciousness and heal but many people are really turned off from medical treatments because of the medical system. The medical system we have sucks, I get it and I agree. But the treatments themselves are oftentimes very necessary and warranted, again we need to look at the energy of the treatment itself, not the treatment encased in the medical system. The key here is that we need to set and hold an intention in order to maximize the potential benefit of the treatment we receive. This type of intention setting rarely exists in modern medicine, it's more about symptom removal than it is about healing which is really disheartening and off putting, which I think is why many people steer away.
So when we are going to receive a medical treatment it's important to set and hold our intention and also infuse the treatment with our highest aligned energy / vibration. We can take the neutral treatment and align it to our highest good and needs and we can set and hold an intention for our healing via the medical treatment. Because modern medical treatments are so potent and strong (especially if we're talking about surgeries), we can access a LOT of healing here, but because that intention for greater healing is not inherent within the allopathic practitioners and system it's on us to set that intention as a recipient of the treatment.
Sometimes the healing is also just in the process of trusting and surrendering to something we don't fully understand with our mind.
So how can I set an intention for receiving a spiritual healing when I get my vaccine?
I'm so glad you asked! Please have a listen to this meditation which will help you connect with your healing intention and infuse it into your vaccine. We can also use this process with any type of medical or healing treatment.
If you're still having trouble making this decision please book a Telehealth meditation session
In my guided meditation sessions I can take your through a deeper process of tuning in to the alignment of any medical treatment for yourself and setting and holding an intention for greater healing during the treatment.
