In March 2020, we were quarantined due to the Corona Virus. Little did we know we would still be isolated a year later. Initially, I went about living my life enjoying the extra time to move at my pace without having to rush. I was enjoying my newly found activity of chair yoga, leisurely reading for the Practitioner class and utilizing the digital tool of Zoom for classes, church and doctor’s appointments. Then one day I did not want to get out of bed. I literally had my head under the blankets. I was experiencing full-blown anxiety and depression. I kept praying under my blanket each morning not wanting to get up. My prescribed medications were not working so I stopped taking them and tried Homeopathy which also did not work. I kept in contact with my Practitioner and she assured me, as in the bible, “This too shall pass”. With a shaky trust, I hung on, calling her and my doctor. I grudgingly went to an intense group for anxiety and depression.
I want to share how prayer, treatment and our SOM Principles and tools work. I called my Practitioner daily. I continued to pray under the covers, the 23rd Psalm, Our Father, Unity Peace prayer, and prayer from Ernest Holmes’ in How to use the SOM.
