This 6D challenge is from the Intersentient Dimension. It is a small idea which, if practiced regularly, can bring with it enormous benefits to your health and wellness.
It has been chosen as this week's challenge precisely because of the reality in which we find ourselves - isolated, confused and vulnerable. In a world when a photo of two people holding hands to comfort one another feels like a memory sometimes, we feel this is the week to challenge ourselves to stay connected to one another.
"Added to the fear of contracting the virus in a pandemic such as COVID-19 are the significant changes to our daily lives as our movements are restricted in support of efforts to contain and slow down the spread of the virus. Faced with new realities of working from home, temporary unemployment, home-schooling of children, and lack of physical contact with other family members, friends and colleagues, it is important that we look after our mental, as well as our physical, health." - WHO website
During difficult and stressful times like these our connection to people becomes vital for our psychological health. Around the world right now millions of people are locked inside their homes and limiting social interactions with loved ones. Our social tethers are being cut and worldwide, mental health crises are on the rise.
"COVID-19 is creating historic mental health and psychosocial support needs — for virus victims, their families, health workers and others responding to the outbreak, and the public at large. This situation has exacerbated the psychological distress of thousands of people. Lockdown restrictions, the absence of social interaction, social outlets and the aggravation of economic challenges, are all impacting people's mental health and access to care." - ICRC Website
6D Living challenges are for everyone in our community. Think of these challenges as auditions - a way to try out little changes in your life to see if they can provide big benefits to your health and wellness.
Call one person each day with one goal - listening to them
We all need to be heard.
Give the gift of truly listening.
Call someone about whom you care.
Ask probing questions, not just yes/no stuff.
Let them talk freely.
Leave your story for another time.
This is their moment to be heard - by you.
Share this gift with seven people this week.
Make a commitment to yourself to try this challenge
Promise yourself to seek out the connections you need
Promise others to provide the connections they need
Integral to a healthy and balanced life are healthy relationships with other sentient beings. In this digital age, profound connections with others are more infrequent as we replace relationships with likes and shares. Balance this dimension of your life by focusing on real world connections with friends, lovers, spouses, family members, animals and nature. Share your time with other living things and reap the benefits of hormonal releases in your body which help to maintain our emotional balance.
