The “CoronaVirus” situation is being massively ramped up very quickly, and governments are taking extreme actions that none of us have ever seen before.
As a result, people are starting to “prepare” at the last minute out of fear and scarcity.
I don’t feel there is any benefit in panic, but when the masses get panicked, they clean out store shelves and disrupt “just in time” supply chains.
Given the highly unusual nature of current events, I do recommend that you buy extra of all the foods that you normally eat, and the non-food items that you use on a regular basis.
Don’t buy things you wouldn’t normally want to eat. That’s a bad way to prepare, and it’s something that a lot of “preppers” probably regret having done. My philosophy is to have a “big pantry” that is well stocked in case of supply chain disruptions.
I recommend that you stock up your pantry and freezer with the foods you already eat, and keep them well stocked over the coming weeks as you eat what you’ve bought. This way, if your area gets “locked down” OR if there are disruptions to your local supply chain, you won’t have to worry about what to eat. 4 weeks of food on hand is a good metric, IMO.
What does it all really mean?
The levels of actions being taken by world governments does not match the severity of the virus. I feel that there is something deeper going on, and that it will reveal itself over the coming weeks.
“Governmental incompetence theory” posits that no government wants to be seen as doing too little to contain the virus, so they are over-reacting.
“Standard conspiracy theory” posits that it is all about more control and mandatory vaccines. In case there is a push for a vaccine, do NOT take it. Obviously.
There is also a popular theory that this virus is being used as a cover for “mass arrests of the cabal.” This is a storyline that has been promoted with zero results many times in the past decade, which makes a lot of people skeptical of this theory, including me.
However, I am seeing signs and feeling intuitions that this theory could have merit. I am still investigating and will post more once I can digest the information and feel into the resonance of what is true.
My best advice is this: Stay grounded and present with the emotions this situation will bring up. Take calm, rational actions to insulate yourself and your family from supply-chain disruptions, and prioritize food over toilet paper (words I never imagined I would type…).
If you are in fear, anger or any uncomfortable emotion, ground yourself and accept that emotion as natural. Fighting what you feel only compounds the inner stresses from the uncomfortable emotion, creating a negative feedback loop.
Grounded, loving presence for yourself and your loved ones will allow you to navigate these strange waters as skillfully as possible. Accept your feelings, calm yourself, talk with your loved ones, calm each other, love each other.
