Lessons from Lockdown with Intuitive Healer Fiona Arrigo
Stop, listen and learn if you are to make the most of this global reset.
“We are the dreamers of the new and the more we rest, the more we dream, and at some point these prayers and visions will undoubtedly create a new world.”Fiona Arrigo
An internationally acclaimed intuitive healer, biodynamic psychotherapist and founder of the award-winning Arrigo Programme, Fiona Arrigo excels at examining the narratives of people’s lives and helping them to discover their own path to happiness—a journey that is ever more poignant now.
“As lockdown unfolded, I began to feel humbled, deeply humbled, and full of self-reflection,” she confesses. Arrigo believes now is the time to dedicate our lives to something greater than our own personal benefit.
“Mother Earth has put us into our rooms like naughty children to think about our actions,” she says, wryly. “But in our rooms we can build hope. We are in a great global pause—a breath where we are learning to rest, reset, and plant the seeds of our hopes and dreams.
“We are the dreamers of the new and the more we rest, the more we dream, and at some point these prayers and visions will undoubtedly create a new world. Midst this terror, there is great magnificence, so let’s dare to dream, dare to hope and come together in our collective wisdom.
“The real beauty of this global reset is that we’re all in this together and we’re interconnected more than ever before. In the words of [American spiritual teacher] Ram Dass, ‘We are all just walking each other home.’ We’re learning to walk lighter on the earth and as we do, we move into a way of being that is kinder.”
Fiona Arrigo’s tips for living your best life during lockdown
Stop for a few minutes, a few times every day to rest, breathe and reflect.
Breathe consciously to draw more energy into the body and create more internal space.
Stop fighting. Surrender to your circumstances. This is a long process of reset and we must give ourselves time and space.
Listen to sounds: Birdsong is ever clearer now, bring music into your life.
