2 Coronavirus in the Ross House – Part One

Coronavirus in the Ross House

If this is your first introduction to me or you’ve never worked with me before, you should know that I consider myself to be a “freethinking, liberal, hippie chick” most of my life. To be honest, that may have been listed on my Myspace account back in the day! But, the caveat to my freethinking spirit is that I’ve always been deeply rooted in the things I can test and I love science! But, not like the test tubes and glasses kind of science (I’ll leave that to my daughter), I like the kind of science you apply to your everyday life!

So, as I’ve studied energy, spirituality and energetic mastery over the past 10 years, I’ve always followed the teachers who support the theory that one should “test” through their own experience, not believe with blind faith. And that, my friend, is how I live life and teach others to evaluate what we “know.”

Before we continue, you should know I am not a medical professional. I have no medical training, and this blog post is in no way written to advise you about what you should do if you contract COVID-19. This is simply mine and my family’s accounts and experience and seemed like the perfect time to respond to all the thoughts, well wishes, and concerns for our house and the wondering of how we are surviving COVID-19.

Somehow, it seems this new strain of coronavirus has been around almost 1 full year and NOW was the time for the house to get it. Please know that as a family we have never been scared of contracting the virus or dying from it, but our love for our fellow humans is strong enough that we have been avid mask wearers, practice social distancing, and have been doing all the things for as long as it’s been asked.

My house is made up of my husband, Brian (46), my daughter, Ceci (5), and two close friends - Katie and Judson (38, 37). I am the primary breadwinner and work from home, so when COVID-19 came to the U.S, other than a few pivots made in my business to move in-person events to an online platform, nothing really changed in our day to day lives. We stopped taking Ceci to the local park and became experts at wearing masks and social distancing.

So when we look back at last week, we can’t honestly be sure how we contracted the virus.

My symptoms started Tuesday evening (December 29th), before I was going to bed. I didn’t feel quite 100%, but chalked it up to having a full work day and not eating as much as I should have. When Wednesday morning came (December 30th), I felt like I had been hit by a bus…  catatonic, not able to move my body with ease, and really, really cold. I felt the same as if I’d gotten the flu, and given my activities for the previous week, that seemed to be a logical explanation. So, I took on REST, which in my experience, is the best method I’ve found to heal. I completed my weekly 3-hour facilitation call and went right back to resting. I started taking detox baths with epsom salt, lavender, and baking soda at least once a day, sometimes more.

On Thursday (December 31), Ceci began moving very slowly and was more sensitive to upsets. One of my housemates wasn’t a full 100%, so we all got in the car to get our Coronavirus tests.

Friday (January 1), I was the first to get my results back and was awarded the gold star for testing positive for COVID-19. Now, on any other day I might have felt good about an accomplishment that warranted an email, a follow up phone call, and so much personal attention! But to have to deal with a call from the Public Health Department to track my whereabouts and trace who I’ve been in contact with seemed somewhat challenging, and had me feel shameful for being in contact with ANYONE.

I will say, in the efforts of tracking the virus, making sure people are made aware, and my natural instinct to care for others, man I felt like an a**hole for being the one to contract it! The irony is that I am the least ‘active’ human I know. I mean, I built my ENTIRE business working from home, and I enjoy it!

It’s the nature of the beast when you care for people and love them as much as I do. Anything that would bring harm to a fellow human being that you were the cause of can hurt your heart. So I left my “You’ve got COVID” call feeling guilty for anyone we may have spread it to and worried for my family.

As of Sunday (January 3), 4 out of 5 people in my house have tested positive. One of my housemates has tested twice, is still negative, and has no symptoms. So, we’ve ruled her as immune for now. We’ve got a full house of COVID and are moving through it…

How are we? What’s it like?

Well, to be honest, it feels like we all have the flu… I mean, we as humans like comparing things we DON’T know to things we DO know, and that is the closest thing I could compare it to! Achey, lethargic, poor appetite, a little cough, some sneezing here and there, and shortness of breath. My kid wants her momma, is quick to cry, and wants to movie binge… as do the rest of us. Not one temperature has gone above 100 degrees and we’ve been downing all the necessary supplements to support our immune systems. Most of us no longer have our sense of smell and taste.  And a few nights ago, we all got to enjoy a nice energetic healing session with my crystal sound bowl… It seems to support and perk us up the next day!

So now, we wait. We heal, sleep, sit back and watch movies, and wait for it to pass over. And of course, I’ll give any updates and insights as they come along!

I appreciate all of the love and light you are sending me. Please know I am sending sooo much love back to you. <3

Self Mastery

Energy and Self-Mastery:  



How does your energy affect yourSELF and your ability to become masterful? 

When it comes to energies, meditation, manifestation, and just overall connecting with your higher self, many people tend to think this is some man-made, woo-woo crap. Well, I’m here to tell you it's not!

Providing guidance on how to improve and transmute your energy is my JAM! 

For over a decade, people have come to me to learn how to create a life that is fulfilled with everything they desire. From love, money, business, to living a life of luxury, your energy and what you put out into the universe is a key factor to getting in alignment and creating the life you’ve always imagined.

So, what is energy? Well my friend… I’m glad you asked! Energy is made up of three things: your thoughts, feelings, and actions.  Why should you care about this? Well,if you want to become energetically masterful or at least more SELF masterful, you need to master these three things.  And if you want to make any kind of change in your life, you not only need to become aware of your blockages but also will want to tune into what your blocks are in these three specific areas.  Once you’ve done that your next steps will be to clear and align with what it is you want to create.

Now you may be thinking…ok Tamara, what does energy have to do with self-mastery? Self-mastery is the ability to get out of your own way  and then create the thing you desire most. It takes self-awareness and a deep willingness to change and do something new and different.   But, without a doubt, becoming SELF MASTERFUL IS something that you CAN do, and it’s easier than you think.

The first step in changing your life is actually tuning into YOUR ENERGY! There is no way around it. You’ll have to think, feel, and act in new ways that allow you to be at the same vibration with the thing you desire most.  So let’s break this down.

Thoughts ARE Energy

Mindset. Mindset. Mindset. You hear people talk about it, rant about and you’ve probably gone to work to change yours.  Well the truth is it’s one part of a 3 part system to give you REAL LASTING change.  If your thoughts are out of whack, you’ll notice everything seems to go off the rails.  So, You’ve gotta get right with your mind and have full belief in what you’re doing if you want to succeed.  The places where people get hung up is when you have doubt, fear or a lack of confidence, around you pursuing what you want.  This activates a negative energy and that begins to manifest around you.  Becoming aware of your thoughts and your mindset is easy because these are typically the things you say about the thing you are wanting to create.  Ex. of limiting thoughts would be: “I hope it all turns out,”  “Well, I don’t want that to happen, but if it does I’ll deal,” “I guess I’m fine with that,” “Well, it’s not like I could really have *fill in the blank* anyway,”  Yes, these are sneaky… they sound good, but in the background, do you sense the Doubt?  

In order to be in alignment with the two other forms of energy and to make your desires a reality, you have to make sure your thoughts are clear and COMPLETELY in alignment with what you want most. You have to be willing to invoke a confidence that it’s not going any other way!

Feelings ARE Energy

Most of our FEELINGS elude us.  To be honest most of our parents and families never taught us how to talk about or even identify our feelings.  We are taught that we shouldn’t be sad, angry and upset and if you are any of those you definitely shouldn’t show it.  

I would say one of the hardest parts about being married for me was being able to tune into how I actually felt about things and then being able to share those feelings with my husband.  And it wasn’t because I didn’t want to, it was because I never really learned how to.  So notice that if you have any sort of feelings of inadequacy,  sadness, anger, or resentment around the thing you desire, you aren’t then aligned with what you want.  You’re aligned in the negative energy of not having it.  That energy will produce more feelings of inadequacy,  sadness, anger, or resentment and so on and so forth, but the biggest culprit here is being able to identify what the feeling is, again because we haven’t been trained to do that.  

The good news is you can change the energy simply by getting to the root of the feeling and giving back to who it belongs to.  By doing this you’ll change your energy field and be more aligned in what you want to create in your life.

Actions ARE Energy

I CANNOT stress this enough…YOUR ACTIONS HAVE TO BE CONSISTENT WITH THE THING THAT YOU WANT TO CREATE! IF you say that you want to be a millionaire, you can’t be making choices that are based in scarcity or lack… hoping something will just happen or change in your reality.  The only way you’re going to become a millionaire is to align in and take millionaire actions.  

If you want to live in abundance, do the things in your life as if you’re already a millionaire…do millionaire thangs! Actions aligned with what you want to manifest are the BIGGEST communicators to the universe.  So, notice what you want to tell the universe and then see if your actions are aligned with that, if they aren’t change them.  

Ex: If you do actually want to become a rich millionaire, take a simple step to look at what kind of glass a millionaire drinks out of.  And then look at what kind of glass you’re drinking out of… If it's not the same kind of glass, go get yourself a new one aligned with the kind of glass you see a millionaire drinking out of.  This is easy and simple and doesn’t cost a lot of money.  Then notice if there’s any doubt or resistance in the background and notice how you feel when you’re sipping your tea out of that glass… Viola… you just aligned your thoughts, feelings and actions into becoming a millionaire.

When you change your thoughts, feelings, and actions…you are on track to not only creating but living a life you LOVE!  The best part is, you’ll feel good in the process.  While you’re on your path, be patient with yourself my friend.  It can take time to master your energies. I’m still doing the work every single day to do better, be better and have better.  But remember that you CAN do this and that I’m here with you on this journey.
