If you are reading these words, you should be aware that there are reportedly over 4 billion people on the planet that do not have internet access as you do right now. That’s a very large segment of the global population. 13 countries, including China, Iran, and North Korea either have no internet or very limited freedom of speech or of what they can read online.
Reportedly 1.8 billion people, or around 25% of the global population, do not have access to clean water.
Around 1.6 billion people on the planet do not have adequate housing.
And not only do approximately 1.1 billion people not own a cell phone, they don’t even have electricity.
We are not telling you this information to depress you, but rather—to remind you of how fortunate you really are.
The fact that you have a warm place to live, with electricity, own a cell phone, have access to clean water, have the internet, and have a fairly large degree of freedom of speech, makes you far more fortunate than billions of other people on planet Earth. You can be thankful for all of these things right now.
I dare you to think of this. And just close your eyes for a few minutes, and let yourself feel the gratitude of all that you have right now. You have a lot.
The Hollywood Sentinel, since it’s beginning over 11 years ago, has been dedicated to reporting ONLY the good news, and dedicated to bringing the world our celebration of all areas of the arts.
Your body and your life itself is a miracle; a masterwork of art made by a genius creator. Your body automatically seeks—like a flower reaching for the sun—to heal itself, and to live.
Do not let the world and media tell you that you are sick and weak, and that you need to give up your freedoms and wait for the pharmaceutical industry to give you drugs to save you, before you can have your freedom back or a chance of living.
Do not Panic, Avoid Fear
Even if a meteor were going to strike the earth in 30 days that we knew about, wiping out all of humanity, it would not serve us to be fearful and panic and be miserable. The thing to do in that situation would be to spend out our last days living for each moment with happiness, thanks, and gratitude, love for ourselves, treating ourselves well, love for our loved ones and every other person on planet earth, love for the earth, and love for our creator (if you believe in that), and making peace with our mortality and preparing for death. If one believed in an afterlife, they should do things spiritually that make them feel most successful in handling that transition.
How to Help Prevent Getting the Virus?
1, Be happy. Any enemy you will ever have in your life wants you to be miserable. They want you miserable, and in fear. Fear weakens the immune system.
You may be angry over the situation and what is going on. That’s normal. Set aside a few short minutes a day where you allow yourself to get angry if you must–and then let it go. Bring yourself back to gratitude, love, and happiness, as much as you can. Don’t let anyone else pull you into emotions you are not ready to deal with. Do what’s right for you. Take care of yourself first–and others later, when you can.
ASSUME great health. Focus on great health–not sickness, and not symptoms. What we put our attention on is what we get.
2, Do not stress. Stress, a form of fear, weakens the body. When stress gets too bad, it causes the body to literally attack itself. This triggers the virus or makes it worse. Avoid stressful things including most media, negative people, and toxic situations.
3, Exercise. Exercise boosts the immune system. Work out daily, even if it’s just a mile or two walk in the neighborhood. But more is better.
4, Get plenty of sunshine, a natural source of Vitamin D, which boosts immunity. In addition, take vitamin D supplements as needed.
5, Take vitamin C and Zinc, which even some doctors have now had to admit help fight infection. Take a multi-vitamin as needed.
6, Eat healthy fresh fruits and vegetables. Avoid greasy, fried foods. Avoid chemical laden, processed foods. Avoid GMO’s. Avoid too much meat, or avoid it all together. Eat healthy, balanced, nutritious meals.
Drink a lot of water. At least 1 glass of fresh clean water per hour.
7, Get plenty of good sleep, at least 8 hours a night.
8, Set goals daily and achieve them each day. Stay clean, keep goal oriented, and stay busy.
9, Focus on making money and work smarter. Don’t assume you can’t make money. Don’t let the world and media convince you that you should give up and hide in a corner. Life is not over. You will make it.
10, If you can get a N95 or K95 mask, get one and wear it if you feel safer doing so when you are near people. If it makes you feel better wearing something else, go for it.
11, If you feel safer doing what we call “anti” social-distancing, than do that. You should always be clean and wash your hands regularly as needed during any time–including now.
12, Be kind to those who disagree with you, and be a source of patience and kindness.
If you feel you have contracted Covid19, What to Do?
(This following information is the opinion of the editor, and is not to interpreted as medical advice or the substitute of a medical professional).
1, Call a doctor immediately that you can trust if you feel you need to. If you take any, read about any drugs before you take them, and their side effects. It is always best to avoid man-made chemicals, whenever possible.
2, Breathe in steam which can even be a hot shower as needed.
3, Get pure mint oil or similar, to put in your nose and breathe in as needed. Test on your hand first to make sure it is safe to do so. The following link has the one that we use, called Sunbreeze. https://ibo.sunrider.com/site/bruceedwin/testimonial
4, Gargle with salt water regularly, and rinse your nose regularly with salt water, breathing in as needed to clear your head, Blow it out.
5, Repeat the list above in steps 1 through 10 and do more of each of 1 through 7.
6. If you believe in a higher power than you–pray.
7, Trust and simply have faith in yourself, your body, and the universe which is a benevolent place and is looking out for you.
8, Music has been scientifically proven to boost the immune system. Listen to great music that makes you feel good.
9, Smile and laugh, and watch happy, funny things that make you feel hope.
10, Do Qigong! An incredible, healing practice that combines slow martial arts like movements with moving meditation. Here is one of our favorites:
