Question 1: Mikey tells me they are very aware of what is happening. Mikey tells me he can literally feel my fear / anxiety at times. He also tells me not to worry.
It's natural for humankind to worry about anything that appears to be a threat. We're hard-wired to do that after all and those who remain close to the earth plane will naturally pick up our anxieties. Telling us not to worry is pointless because worrying isn't a choice we make - events cause us to worry. We don't choose to worry and may be emotionally unable to stop. It's as pointless as telling someone who isn't a worrier to become one, to start worrying.
So I'm doing pretty well even with my job at the hospital.
That's good to hear when so many are experiencing major difficulties.
Mikey tells me the world is not going to end. We are eternal beings. Many lessons are occurring right now, which I think is obvious. There are so many factors of how everyone is affected . Can we pull together as a world and get this conquered / under control?
Speaking only for myself I've never been concerned about this world coming to an end but I hope Mikey's words may reassure those who are. But this virus appears to be a significant threat to the lives we've led up to this point and the world we've grown to know. How the world's populations reacts remains to be seen. It would be great to know we're all gonna work together, that national governments are gonna co-operate with others and with NGOs, that rivalries of all kinds will be set aside, that big businesses will abandon their bottom line and turn to producing what is immediately needed in vast, and expensive, quantities. And that all will work together to deal with this virus. Even as I'm writing it sounds like pie-in-the-sky and a huge sea-change would be needed for even some of those aspects to come to fruition!
Question 2: Mikey tells me this pandemic was not specifically orchestrated by spirit.
Thanks for that reassurance because elsewhere I've read suggestions/intimations it might have been. That sounded nonsense to me and Mikey's words seem to confirm it.
Mikey tells me it is an earthly "reboot or cleansing" in a sense.
I see it as a re-balancing in a world whose values need re-balancing. Not cleansing this virus but quarantining it followed by a 'reboot' of the operating system. Quite whether that will happen on account of Covid 19 remains to be seen and 'short-termism' may continue - get through the immediate crisis, get things settled down and then 'back-to-business'. Unless I'm mistaken one prominent individual is already advocating that in a matter of weeks albeit not in so many words.
We need to remember that the earth is alive. It is energy. What is happening is an eye opener for many who inhabit on this earth according to Mikey.
Putting it that way makes it sound like the stuff 'hippy new-agers' spout on about. Such words mean little to average Joe's and Josephine's battling their way through incarnate life. What the next generations would more likely respond to is a call for us to stop trashing this world and to adopt more socialist values - that would include nations funding research and paying for what's needed. And that means the average gal and guy paying more tax because money doesn't grow on trees.
Beyond those last points I won't go because we don't do political (or religious) discussions on ALF. Try Twitter if you're so minded.
How will this change people? Mikey tells me many good things can come from this experience.
Yes it could but we'll have to wait to see if - and by how much in the longer term - it actually will.
This dimension has many variables from Mikey's viewpoint. (There have been other illness / plagues over the many years here.)
One of the biggest recent pandemics was the so-called Spanish Flu. The CDC indicates about 500 million were infected worldwide and 50 million died. The present situation is different for the moment but that could change rapidly. Yes we should be better placed to respond to Covid 19 but there's no guarantee we'll do better.
Being able to adjust and correct teaches us perseverance and makes us stronger.
It remains to be seen whether humankind is more prepared and better able to respond to this threat.
With all of this, Mikey does say there is great potential for spiritual growth with the learning experiences that are taking place. It can really bring out the love and kindness that is within! Sometimes it takes something big for people to wake up to what is really important. Certainly many things won't be taken for granted....
As with all apparently-negative events there will also be positive outcomes, both of them resulting in spiritual growth. We who are privileged to understand that situation are in a better position to respond differently from those who don't. Whether there's enough of us to significantly alter the shape of the future is moot; mac isn't optimistic but would be delighted to be wrong.
Question 3: Yes, these can be exit points for many according to Mikey. However, the virus itself may have not been known, but it is the vehicle used to make it happen. Again, Mikey cannot say that is the case for all involved.
Carol and Mikey "in Spirit"
As so often it's a yes and/or maybe situation - death because of the virus may be a potential exit point but it may not. My layman view is that for the majority it won't be because Mikey has indicated there was no spirit orchestration of the current situation.
ps As previously I'll shortly be moving my responses out of this C&M Q&A thread so that it's mostly just Mikey's words that will be seen here.
