Popstar Robbie Williams has revealed that his coronavirus symptoms “went away” after he turned to prayer while in self-isolation from his family.
After returning to LA following a cancelled concert in Australia, the Angels singer, who was raised a Catholic and attended St Margaret Ward Catholic School in Tunstall, decided to do all he could to protect his young family by going into self-isolation at an Airbnb.
“When I landed back in LA it was unusually cloudy and grey, and what with everything going on it did feel very apocalyptic,” the 46-year-old star told The Sun.
“I was in quarantine in an Airbnb down the road from my family and started worrying about food, about my medication running out, about Beau and my family, and was just very fearful for a couple of days.”
During his time in quarantine the singer convinced himself that he’d contracted the virus after he began to develop symptoms, which included his body becoming “lethargic and tired and heavy”.
“I never normally do it but I got down on my knees and prayed,” he said. “I thought about my wife and family. Within 30 seconds I had lifted my vibration and was in love.
“And you know what? The symptoms went away and the fear went away.
“I’ve now safeguarded myself against lower energies, against feelings of worthlessness,” he added.
Williams revealed that prayer is important for him as he can become depressed sometimes.
He said prayer and meditation support and help him not to give in to “the temptations of those negative thoughts and feelings”.
