Are Viruses Sentient Beings?

Coming from Hong Kong, people are in such deep fear of the coronavirus (coupled with anger over the irresponsible actions of the government) that the vibrant city has kind of spiraled into a nightmare. Would you be willing (I’m not sure if viruses count as animals though I believe they have a spirit too) to communicate with the coronavirus and let us know what it wants us to know? Amanda Yik

I wrote an article about viruses published in Species Link Journal in Spring 1999 when there were fears about other virus epidemics. I also wrote a blog called “Viruses Reveal Their True Mission” in September 2018. The timely question deserves a fresh view here.

When we think of interspecies communication, most of us focus on the animals that we see around us. Many do not consider some of the smaller creatures in the web of life —viruses and other microorganisms. I’m very happy that Amanda, who asked this question, did.

People may think of viruses with fear as negative entities that need to be destroyed before they decimate our bodies. But viruses are living beings with whom you can communicate. They are just as alive and conscious as other animals, including you and me.

In tuning into them, they informed me:

We are the cleaners. People call us parasites, but we are equalizers or restorers of harmony.

They relayed an energetic feeling and image of sweeping through with a big broom and cleaning up debris. They communicated their purpose to help our bodies to evolve. They help cells evolve to their next level. Sweeping through, they mutate to avoid destruction because they have a function to make species stronger.

I learned from viruses that they are part of the Earth’s recycling crew and evolutionary movers and shakers. They showed me that Earth was originally programmed to constantly evolve into something more beautiful. Viruses help species develop into their next level of beauty, health, and wholeness.

Restorers of Balance
Viruses flourish when there is an imbalance because they are the restorers of the balance. They rebalance and further the evolution of species.

This certainly is a more universal outlook than seeing viruses as enemies. In connecting with them, I felt viruses are just as full of dedication to their purpose in the circle of life as other species. They're fulfilling their function with love and devotion. The living cells and bodies that they contact are spurred to increase in consciousness. In the cleaning up process, they also can heighten our spiritual presence and awareness, if we are open to this opportunity.

Microorganisms do not necessarily focus on saving individual bodies in their dedication to cleansing and rebalancing. Their major task is to assist both the cellular consciousness of bodies and the whole life or soul of humanity and other species, too.

The overall Virus Entity or Soul, showed me that viral movement is like a wave. Viruses have a cycle, although people may think it’s what they’re doing with medicines or chemicals that gets rid of them. When viruses cycle through bodies, their physical forms may die, but they go on energetically to do their work, like a light cloud that rolls over the Earth.

As Individuals
I asked viruses, including the current coronavirus, “What would you most like us to know?” They said, Don’t be afraid of us. Love us. We are of your self. Love us, for we help you.

They showed me on an individual level that if we don’t resist viruses and just go into our own healing process with rest and surrender, then they can do their work and we can become more healthy.

I felt a deep love and understanding of viruses as I communicated with them. They showed me images of how, when viruses have come into my body, I’ve needed to go into a space of deep change. They knocked me off my feet in order that I could handle more and increase my physical and spiritual health. They said that rather than focus on killing viruses, people should support the viruses’ work.

How do we support viruses’ work? They said,
By love, by rest, by loving yourself, by drinking pure water and all those things that support your health. By doing that, you also support us because then we can leave and mutate to our next level of being.

Our Helpers
Looking at viruses and other microorganisms as helpers in our mutual evolutionary journey and in the natural process of cleansing and restoring balance changes the way we feel and act. By communicating with viruses that are working within our bodies, we may find ways to assist our health on all levels. This may require changes in lifestyle, such as getting more rest, eating more wholesome food, spending quiet time in meditation, taking walks in Nature, and paying more attention to our feelings.

By listening to some of our smallest brothers and sisters on Earth—the microorganisms—perhaps we can learn more about how to assist the healing and evolution of all living beings.

Everyone has a place in the web of life. All contain the wisdom of Spirit. May we continue to
communicate with and learn from each other, no matter the shape or size of our earthly containers and enjoy the adventure of experiencing many different aspects of life on Earth.
