FeaturedWhen the beast comes at night; Covid-19

At times coronavirus Covid-19 can be at it’s worst at night, well into the early mornings. This would be why this coronavirus Covid-19 has earned it’s title “The Beast”.

With much uncertainty at times trying to figure out if it’s possible to know if you’d had the coronavirus prior to vaccine being available as medical professionals lingered with identifying telltale signs and symptoms; often diagnosing patients labeled as an “indicator”. Yet it’s too soon for any of us to let our guards down as the coronavirus Covid-19 has the ability to mutate into different variants. I know I had my share of doubts because this can be very confusing for many, including myself. We hear and see the stories of shear horrors of families suffering in dominoes effective; one after another. Then comes along others that test positive without knowingly carrying variants of Covid-19.

Perhaps I may have lost sight of this beast that reeks havoc because when it hits home, your loved ones, this beast Covid-19 can tranquilized fear and begin to spiral like a vortex leaving heavily guarded hearts in much distress. This virus Covid-19 doesn’t discriminate, rather it exploits and devior human souls. As it did, leaving my loved on fighting for her life on a ventilator. I saw this beast Covid-19 as it came barreling down on more loved one and ravaged in ways I hadn’t seen. I assure this beast leaves wounded scares on those untouched.

As doctors and scientists race to discover, learn as time surpasses there’s still much uncertainty. I would say health-care workers, the essential workers on the forefront reinforce the hardest task at hand caring for our love ones through recovery and sometimes to the end. I give much gratitude to all for having strength where many of us couldn’t fathom the amount of courage, dedication, integrity within; what it takes to save lives by multitude.

It baffled many healthcare works and scientists where two topics came from trials of saving many lives. Blood clotting factors and oxygen levels as some healthcare professionals spoke with patients who would go see doctors, be able to respond in complete sentences without having catch their breath.

The irony came when patients would get vitals done their oxygen  levels were low and yet a person could speak freely without in some sort of hesitation. The monstrous beast, the coronavirus linked the ability to allow a person to inhale breaths but struggle to exhale carbon dioxide from a person’s lungs which resulted in lower oxygen levels.

The virus Covid-19, given testimonials by people who have survived “the beast that comes out at night while a person rest may do more harm and ravage chaos by early morning”.

Having a oxygen/carbon dioxide reader may save lives and get your love ones to a hospital or urgent care before this coronavirus, Covid-19 reeks havoc in silence.

Aristotle Wrote:
“All human actions have one or more of these seven causes: chance, nature, compulsion, habit, reason, passion and desire”

Spirituality as we know comes in many forms through core values, exposure, personalization, ethnic, culture, religion, beliefs, etc.

Spirituality is within a person’s inner source, intuitive thoughts and how one might perceive things in life.

Elements within a person’s core values may reflect traditional methods through integration and/or congregation within one’s own habitat. One may choose to surround themselves in a manner of how one perceives life’s spiritual values.

Where the wheel spins within ones thoughts and human behavior, actions form in regards as to how a person responds to circumstances in life and at times bring more spirituality into life in such divine ways.

Cause & Effect:

Circumstances within cause and effect may compellingly choose to respond with or without engaging in some form of action. Cause and effect may acknowledge its existence in an underlining source subconsciously.

Through subconscious awareness one may link in some sort of inner source; connective thoughts lay down a foundation of complexity placed within itself. Sometimes collective thoughts may form visions about life; one where people, places or things are better in an abstract of a daydream.

Disarray may at times mimic a cluster of personal distress and how one function in everyday life. At times during emotional distress one might feel as life has become an avalanche. One where everyday stress may build-and-build until it all unfolds; pours out in a colossal mess…

Finding Balance:

Cause and effect through turbulent emotions may at times linger or fester and lead to explosive reactions when things become bothersome.

Someone once said “it comes in a can.” This implies at times we can become stuck reminiscing, ruminating and over-thinking situations by setting the stage and making things appears worse than they really are. At times this may create problems that were never there to begin with. Almost as if one were to mix magnesium sulfate with soda to calm a storm.

However, staying in the present moment and not allowing things to unfold in the heat of moment can lead to more positive outcomes. But also learning to stay mindful with reminders to not let things become bothersome and spiral downward by placing defensive reactions out of an alarming emotional response. Reminders to not to over-think; explaining the same thing 5 different ways.

Finding balance in life will be the most beneficial element to achieving respite within. Most of us will spend a lifetime searching for this. Life doesn’t come with instructions and neither does balancing our everyday lives. But through our own trial and error we can adopt readiness guided by willingness to make personal change.

Conditioned to Crisis:

A crisis can condition a person to stray far from stabilization in any manner within cause and effect, creating an avalanche effect that may continue to build regardless.

Many individuals at one time or another have come across circumstances in their lives that sent them on a mission in an overwhelming emotional state. This doesn’t necessarily change or modify another person’s elevated emotional state of mind, but rather dysfunction may occur.

One may at times mimic or draw conclusions to reflect on their own emotional response conditioned through a belief system right down to personal and core values.

One may find within their own personal habitat that their own state of mind may react spontaneously to a crisis mode (often referred to as a rescue mode).

Perhaps worrisome thoughts have captured an emotional response and created a downward spiral of emotions flooding in a state of panic towards one’s spouse, family member or a loved one. In a state of panic (rescue mode) to rid unwanted emotions or problem solve we sometimes become compelled in stressful situations to place ourselves in the driver’s seat of a vehicle, only to find that one is in overdrive with their foot floored to the gas pedal based in a state of fear to React! Respond! Do Something!

The Impact Effect:

Many individuals at one time or another have come across circumstances in their lives that sent them on a mission prompted by emotional state of reaction to current events.

At times current events may have unfolded in our community or around the world, leaving a reaction of overwhelming emotional response prompted by chain of events. The cause and effect reactions to how one may feel about presumable actions or a crisis in current events may prompt a reaction within one’s own emotional state of being; where at times unintentionally create more havoc where mass hysteria may occur within society.

Spirituality in the Making:

Perhaps a loved one has been ill with a serious medical condition and you find yourself facing fears head on. Maybe it’s a friend having a difficult time managing his/hers mental health distress or perhaps it is someone close to you fighting a drug/alcohol addiction and you feel absolutely powerless to do anything.

In any state of being it can be difficult to carry someone close to one’s heart who inflicts emotional harm onto themselves or others, leaving one to be unable to receive a healthier connection.

In some cases where one’s spiritual beliefs may be in distress and broken down. It can be difficult for a loved one to comprehend the impact of cause and effect. To learn to set aside differences because each person is unique to their own core values when it comes to spirituality.

At times it is necessary to place one’s own spiritual beliefs aside; to be checked in and left at the front door. Individuality creates each person to uniquely define their own core values; their own belief system.

At times ones spiritual beliefs may lead one to believe notions through spiritual entity to be the only path in such divine ways. Ultimately by engaging in a sense of notions disagreeable to another may prompt one to create actions that may do more harm than good.

Validation:
Most often relationships become much more wholesome when a person can relate on a more personal level without judgments and lack thereof the use of words that may hinder a person’s ability to feel validation.

Validation is crucial part of communication when it comes to a healthier connection. Whereas one being empathetic in comparison isn’t because  it may become misguided words.

Things in life aren’t intended to be all-or-nothing; black-or-white. There are many shades of gray to lay down a healthy foundation in one’s life.

Spirituality Right Down to the Core:

If I were to use addiction as an example with someone struggling to find reasons to believe things will get better. Most often a person’s addiction can spiral into a path of destruction, leaving one’s self-worth, personal core values to plummet downward.

One’s spirituality may have already been hindered collectively through emotional duress without the ability to reason and/or see things differently.

For some spirituality may falter so far that even an avalanche couldn’t persuade one to find shelter.

Quote:

“It is often said when it comes to addictions, mental illness, health conditions one may strive at a bare minimal in times of struggles. One’s ability to maintain a faction of hope strays far, just enough to keep a person on solid ground and living moment-by-moment in any given circumstances where there are shadows of doubts…”

LGBTQ COMMUNITY and FRIENDS

WHAT IS THE HUMAN RIGHTS CAMPAIGN?

In conversions therapy or reparative therapy words spoken translate in form to lead negative interpretations, falsify, mislead references towards LGBTQ communities. Conversion therapy and reparative therapy are also dangerous and discredited practices that falsely claim to change a person’s sexual orientation or gender identity or expression. Such practices have been rejected in mass of credentials, mainstream medical and mental health organization for decades. However some continue ongoing discrimination, societal bias beliefs against LGBTQ people. Conversions therapy, a “havoc in ruins” leads to depression, anxiety, drug use, homelessness, and sadly increasing risk of suicide in the LGBTQ community.

Not long ago many organizations began to acknowledge the long term damaging effect of words in power of religious abuse towards LGBTQ Communities; to treat people of LGBTQ Community in a religious movement as an “evil spirit addiction” that needed to be cleansed, repent of great sins, to rid bad spirits of great evil; to go as far to chant in what one would be called to “Chant in Religious Tongue” in a sole purpose to rid the demons . The “Strong Hold Effect” in some religions, members and affiliates use this method as a way to tear down the fabric of one’s emotional and physical wellbeing; to treat people of LGBTQ as people in need of saving of their soul.

This wouldn’t be considered a traditional prayer group because it requires members to prayer chant among other religious members as well to chant in a circle over someone who identifies themselves as LGBTQ without permission from the individual to rid something they are compelled to remove like demons in circumstances that resemble an exorcism.

Conversions/Repairitive Therapies: The Lies and Dangers of Efforts to Change Sexual Orientation or Gender Identity”

To date, Connecticut, California, Nevada, New Jersey, the District of Columbia, Oregon, Illinois, Vermont, New York, New Mexico, Rhode Island, Washington, Maryland, Hawaii, New Hampshire and Delaware all have laws or regulations protecting youth from this abusive practice. A growing number of municipalities have also enacted similar protections, including cities and counties in Ohio, Pennsylvania, Washington, Florida, New York, Arizona, Wisconsin and other States soon Followed. 

In August of 2013, the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals upheld California’s law, which was signed by Democratic Governor Jerry Brown in 2012. In May of 2015 and again in February of 2016, the United States Supreme Court let stand decisions of the 3rd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals upholding New Jersey’s law, which was signed by Republican Governor Chris Christie in August of 2013. In February of 2015, a NJ Superior Court judge ruled that misrepresenting homosexuality as a disorder violates the state’s consumer protection laws. Additionally, in June of 2015, the jury in that case found a conversion therapy provider liable for consumer fraud and ordered the provider to pay the plaintiffs for refunds and damages.

In February 2016, the Human Rights Campaign, National Center for Lesbian Rights, and Southern Poverty Law Center filed a consumer fraud complaint with the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) against People Can Change, a major provider of conversion therapy. The complaint alleges that People Can Change’s advertisements and business practices which claim they can change a person’s sexual orientation or gender identity constitute deceptive, false, and misleading practices and can cause serious harm to consumers, all in direct violation of Section 5 of the Federal Trade Commission Act. The complaint urges the FTC to take enforcement action to stop these deceptive practices and investigate all practitioners making similar claims.

Some right-wing religious groups promote the concept that an individual can change their sexual orientation or gender identity, either through prayer or other religious efforts, or through so-called “reparative” or “conversion” therapy. The research on such efforts has disproven their efficacy, and also has indicated that they can be affirmatively harmful. Beyond studies focused solely on reparative therapy, broader research clearly demonstrates the significant harm that societal prejudice and family rejection has on lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ) people, particularly youth. Furthermore, there is significant anecdotal evidence of harm to LGBTQ people resulting from attempts to change their sexual orientation and gender identity. Based on this body of evidence, every major medical and mental health organization in the United States has issued a statement condemning the use of conversion therapy.
