So here we are in the US after a presidential election that was so polarized and divided that many spun into fear, depression, anger, and even hatred. We've got a president elect that some hope will fix the country and some fear.
Rather than hoping for, or fearing what one man can do, the angels say it is far better to realize that we, as a collective human race, are the ones "in Power."
We vote vibrationally with our energy field in every breath. We vote for love or we vote for hate. We vote for fear or we vote for faith. We vote for unity in the diversity or we vote for divisiveness and separation... in every breath. In each moment, collectively, we create the next. We ripple the field with our every thought, word, and deed.
Each time we criticize ourselves or another we bring our inner "judge" or "dictator" to the surface, and broadcast the energy that empowers judgment and bullying. Each time we love ourselves or another with compassion, we bring our inner "Christ" to the surface and broadcast the energy that empowers unconditional love.
This discussion is not about a man, not about a political party, not about a right vs. wrong, good vs. evil but rather simply about love or fear, spiritual truth or illusions of separation. It is time to realize how powerful we really are. The ones we love in public iconify all that we love in ourselves. The ones we can't stand iconify things we may not yet have owned or made peace with inside of us... if only in the smallest ways.
I am choosing not to hate the haters, not to be prejudicial against the prejudice, not to separate myself from those who would see to separate humanity and pit one against another. I am choosing to love, to pray for the union of souls, the upliftment of humanity. I am choosing to be kind to people who are difficult, and to be kind to myself with greater fervor and commitment than ever before. I am choosing not to judge others and not to judge myself, but simply to discern who and what belongs in my life.
1. Remember God is still God
No matter who is in "office" no one and nothing has more power over your life, well being, and finances than what you choose to give them. Literally. God is still God. The universe operates by the laws of vibration. Have faith in the Divine and the Divine can pour countless blessings into your life no matter what the economy does, no matter what programs stay or go, no matter who is in "power." The Dalai Lama, when asked why he didn't hate the Chinese once said, "I gave them my country and many of my people. Why should I give them my mind?"
When you begin to fear the state of the world, finances, etc... remember, the Creator's love remains constant just as the ocean remains constant beneath the surface. Put your faith in the Infinite and you will be "in the world but not of it." Take time in stillness to reconnect with peace each day, if only for a song, or a few breaths. It matters.
2. Don't hate the haters / Don't judge the judgmental
This one can be tough! We don't like people who are mean, bigoted, etc. We don't want to be around them. We don't like to listen to them. However the angels say that the angry only "make you" angry if you have anger in you!
Remember the scene in Star Wars where Darth Vader was trying to bring Luke to the dark side? He taunted him, attacked him and then goaded him to "use your anger," telling him anger would make him powerful. This is the lure of the "dark side"... although in truth there is only light and misunderstanding.
When you are tempted to anger or judgment, remind yourself... I don't have to like the words or actions, but I can send light to the soul. I can love the light within that person no matter how buried. I can be more effective in changing them if I pray for their upliftment, send light, or ask for truth to be seen. There is no point in judging or hating, other than to make us feel powerful and right when we feel powerless. We are not powerless. We have the capacity to direct the love that created Universes. Love Relentlessly.
3. Listen to other peoples' perspectives, but hold tight to your own
This is a challenge. Listen with respect to others' perspectives even if you would not normally respect them. Ask why they feel that way. Seek to understand rather than to be understood. A funny thing happens. Suddenly people start to care about your perspectives too.
I have had many people in my life who don't really care about anything other than sharing their own opinions. Some of them I could walk away from. Others' I've worked with and couldn't. The angels taught me to think of them with curiosity... "Why do you feel that way? Why do you think that way?" This leads to far deeper and more interesting discussions than trying to convince anyone I'm "right." I am right... for me! You are right... for you! If we could honor our own perspectives but listen with respect and seek to understand our world would be a better place.
We can make this world a beautiful place by embracing only those energies we want to see. As Ghandi said, “If we could change ourselves, the tendencies in the world would also change. As a man changes his own nature, so does the attitude of the world change towards him. ... We need not wait to see what others do.”
I love you all... may you feel the peace of truth within you.
