Radically Loved® with Rosie Acosta

Hi I’m Rosie Acosta. I am a Meditation Teacher; Speaker and Author of You Are Radically Loved: A healing journey to self-love. I grew up in East Los Angeles during the 92 La Riots and it set me on a troubled path for many years. I didn’t grow up with mentors in my life, so I turned to reading as many books as I possibly could to learn about life’s purpose. In my journey as a First Gen-Mexican American, I found having these conversations gave me insight, support, and inspiration. So, I decided to create a place where I could share these conversations with my community. The Radically Loved Podcast was born! How do we create a radically loved life? Come have a sit with me so we can discover all things mindfulness, spirituality, self-love, and overall healthy living. Please be sure to share the episodes that you love and also leave us a review!

#WisdomWednesdays: Spreading Hope and Overcoming COVID-19 Through Love and Compassion

COVID-19 has impacted the lives of everyone across the globe, making the world seem like a terrifying place. After more than a year, there are still surges in cases despite all our progress. While it may be difficult to see the light at the end of the tunnel, we should stay positive. There is a silver lining to the pandemic. We will all get through this if we keep spreading hope  and extending a helping hand.

In this episode, Rosie shares her experience of contracting COVID-19. She talks about how she and Torry pulled through, with the help of their friends and loving dogs. Getting the virus made her realize just how crucial it is to have a community that can support you in these trying times. Rosie and Tessa also emphasize the importance of prioritizing collective welfare over individual concerns. By pushing for the greater good, we can all move forward from this pandemic.

Tune in and be inspired to start spreading hope and acting from a place of love and compassion.

Here are three reasons why you should listen to the full episode:

  1. Hear about Rosie’s firsthand experience with COVID-19 and how she was able to overcome the virus.
  2. Know about the importance of emotional support, compassion, and responsibility.
  3. Find out how you can continue spreading hope in these difficult times.

Episode Highlights

Contracting the Virus

  • Rosie recently contracted the virus and is still recovering.
  • She was yet to be vaccinated. However, she is not anti-vax.
  • Her doctor advised her to wait for 90 days for her body to recover before getting inoculated against the virus.
  • She regrets postponing her vaccination because she was afraid of missing a day of work. When she got the virus, she ended up having to rest for two and a half weeks.

Interacting with Gentleness

  • After contracting the virus, Rosie had more compassion for people who had gone through the same experience.
  • Many emailed her, asking about her vaccination status. While she recognizes that they come from a good place, she reminds everyone that it’s also important to be gentle.
  • She hopes that we can tune into compassion and empathy instead of attacking and blaming each other.

On Vaccination

  • There’s a difference between not being vaccinated yet and being anti-vax.
  • Tessa expresses how the United States is fortunate for having so many vaccines to choose from and the ability to make a conscious decision.

How Rosie Survived the Virus

  • Rosie is thankful for our medical professionals who helped her when she got sick. Many of them contracted the virus during the start of the outbreak.
  • Since she lives in a big city, she was able to get their meals and groceries delivered.
  • She also got comfort from talking to her friends who also contracted and survived the virus.

Post-COVID-19

  • Rosie fell into a slump after getting the virus. She thinks that lack of movement and human touch contributed to this depression.
  • Once she started feeling better, Rosie did minimal restorative yoga and cleaned their house.
  • However, she had to stop halfway through because she began to feel ill again. She then realized that she barely ate anything in the past days since she lost her sense of taste.

How Their Dogs Helped

  • Rosie and Torry have three pit bulls: Chowder, Rosie, and Brinks.
  • They slept in separate rooms and split up the dogs; Rosie got the two boys.
  • During that time, Chowder was very attentive to her. He seems to sense that something was wrong.
  • The dogs helped Rosie stay sane during the whole ordeal.

Spreading Hope and Compassion

  • We are all figuring things out together.
  • Remember how important it is to take care of each other.
  • Be compassionate, empathetic, and responsible. One of the ways you can do this is by wearing a mask.
  • Emphasize taking care of the whole, as opposed to focusing on the individual.
  • Keep reaching out to others and letting people know you’re here for the greater good.

Coming From a Place of Love

  • We are currently balancing between a scary, difficult time and a hopeful, transitional one.
  • So, it's important to remember that we are all humans going through human experiences.
  • Rather than coming from a place of judgment, try to be more curious. Doing so allows for learning and deeper connections.
  • Mindfulness, yoga, and meditation can help you practice acting from a place of love and compassion.

Rosie’s Advice

  • Trust that the situation will improve. Rosie and Torry are feeling better by the day.
  • Turn off your phone and be in the moment. Talk to people, and focus on the positive.
  • Find time to be grateful every day.
