Social Distancing Doesn’t Mean Total Isolation

Dara LevanBlog, Every Soul Has A Story

You have been on my mind and in my heart. It’s been a tough few weeks, and I realize it is just the beginning of a new normal for all of us.  We are all dealing with adapting and adjusting in our own ways.

I wrote numerous blog posts and messages for today. We’ve had to shift how we live. It felt timely to also change the way in which I communicate with you.

I’ve heard from many people that the bombardment of news, articles, and updates is emotionally overwhelming. And I totally relate. I’ve rapidly realized that panic can be nearly as contagious as this virus.

I have decided to give myself intentional time outs. No technology or talking. During these times, I walk, write, meditate, or simply breathe. I encourage you to carve space in each day to release your stress and anxiety.

Please join me every Wednesday on Facebook and Instagram for WEDNESDAY WISDOM. Here is yesterday’s post, which was on social media. Thank you from my heart to yours to those who reposted it. đź’ś

My intention since 2017 is to reach and connect with souls globally. We need connection now more than ever; I deeply appreciate your engagement.
I feel grounded when connecting with nature. Whenever I travel, or even walk in my neighborhood, I often take brief videos of a moment that speaks to me. Then I share it with others. I have been doing this for decades.

Last week I sat by a lake. The water calmed my nerves. I made a quick recording and sent it to a few friends. They said it made them feel peaceful.

So today I created this brief Every Soul Has A Story meditative video. I hope you feel my love and support. You can watch and listen to it on Facebook or Instagram.

Please share with others if you found it calming. I am hugging you from here!
My hope is to foster a caring, inspiring, and authentic online community. I look forward to learning about and writing YOUR stories. You can connect with me via Facebook, Instagram, or email (
