The Election Hangover- A Higher Perspective

As I awoke this morning after the American election, I was confronted by news and Facebook comments from friends, family and complete strangers that displayed sadness, fear, grief and disgust at the new President Elect.   I try not to get dragged into drama, especially politics, but as I watched the election results last night with the rest of the world, sitting on the edge of my seat, I just kept saying over and over again “Let these results be for the best and highest good for all”.  Upon hearing the results this morning, I felt very calm, grounded and indeed hopeful that perhaps a shift in consciousness and awakening really is happening on this planet.  The people have voted for change instead of more of the same; except that change can be difficult, uncomfortable and fearful all at the same time.

Now, I have no intention of getting into a political debate about who was the better candidate, who said what, who did what, etc.  That will simply perpetuate more drama.  It’s been difficult over the last 2 years to watch all the mud-slinging, unkind, blaming, nasty and often childlike behaviour that has been exhibited by all the candidates and not get dragged into it.  I always try to take the 10,000 foot view and see things from the ‘whole picture’ perspective instead of taking sides.  Being a Canadian, my opinion never really mattered anyway, but honestly, Bernie was my guy.  I see in him someone who is completely in his heart and in humility, who really would unite.  He appealed to the love, compassion and unity in all of us and represented to most the kind of world we want to live in.  Donald and Hilary- well, they did just the opposite.  They woke up the fears, the darkness and all the insecurities that each of us also hold within.


Bernie and Donald both ran on similar platforms, but their delivery of it was completely different.  Donald has run for change too but not in the heart centered way that Bernie did.  I heard several news reporters over the last 24 hours refer to these election results as “The Apocalypse”.   However, that word has always been given a bad rap.  It has always signified to many the end of the world as we know it.  As an awakened being, I know it as “the shift”.  The meaning of the word “apocalypse” actually means “a cataclysm in which evil forces are destroyed”, “the lifting of the veil or revelation of a disclosure of something hidden from the majority of mankind in an era dominated by falsehood and misconception.”  Look up the word in the dictionary and/or Wikipedia yourself and remember, we live in a world of duality where both light and dark exists.

With the election results in, most are reacting in a fear based way, believing that Donald will bring about the end; the truth is, he will undoubtedly bring about change, exposing the shadow side of government and corporations like we’ve never seen before.  Sometimes, you just need a bull to go into the proverbial china shop, tear things down, and expose the truth that has been hidden for so long so that the necessary rebuilding can then happen.  It is my deepest hope that Donald will help bring this about.  Only then will America and the world be ready to start rebuilding itself based upon the love, unity and humility that Bernie brought to the table and ignited in the masses.

To most people though, these results are a reflection of their deepest fears coming true…..change.  People don’t like change because it often means getting out of their own comfort zones to make that change happen.  I’m not here to debate what Hilary would or wouldn’t have done; but I believe she represented more of the same government that we’ve seen in the past and this clearly isn’t what America wants.  This election has played out between several candidates and has pushed every button we all have but it’s important to understand that what we’ve been watching happen outside of us is also a reflection of what’s inside of us as well.

Donald Trump has exposed his rawness, his prejudices, and all the unhealed parts of himself to the world and if any of “his stuff” has triggered you, take a good look inside at why and what it is.  All those things you don’t like about him are reflections of you that you don’t like either.   In the world of inner healing, we see this all the time.  People disown aspects of themselves that they don’t want to see, and now, with Trump coming into power, the negative reactions are because many don’t want to see their reflection in him.  They would have preferred more of the same to avoid this momentous opportunity to look inside.  Right now, people are looking for answers and how to react to this.  It’s important to allow yourself to feel everything that you’re feeling and then ask yourself “why?”  Once you become aware, then healing can start to happen.  I believe that if Hilary would have won, most of us would still be having the same doubts because they are ours and we must own them.

This world will be changing soon….it already is.  I am hopeful that it will be changing in many positive ways but in order for that to happen, we must stop sending such fear based, powerless, negative messages first to ourselves, then to others and especially now, to the new President Elect.  He’s not responsible for changing everything and making it all better…we are.  Group consciousness reacts and manifests from the group and if change is coming, perhaps we should be sending Donald Trump love, humility and unity thoughts instead of hate, separation and wounded ones.    That way, he can do his job of exposing the deep seated Shadows of corruption to the world and help us then create the world we all say we want.  We have the power within us and it has to be up to each one of us to embrace that or to give it away once more.

Love and Blessings,
