My Adventures with
Personal Stories of Working with Subtle Energies
After the election of Donald Trump, I actually found myself going through the seven stages of grief by Kubler-Ross. I was a bit surprised by this, but then again, I had seen the outcome of this election choice before the election, and knew it was going to be a bloody, chaotic, and difficult path if Mr. Trump were elected.
The day after the inauguration, I wondered if we would find ourselves at war, but we did not. I breathed a sigh of relief and thought, "hey, this is a good sign! We haven't been bombed!" But since that inauguration, each day has been filled with angst, emotional dread, and complete anxiety. I am finding the need to combat these anxieties by retreating into meditation to shake off what I see and feel. In this meditative process, I try to find that center - you know, that place of peace and zen, but when I can't, I seem to continually asking "what, why"and what can be done?" in these meditations.
These are the reminders I keep getting in my meditations, and if you are like me, you may find this information helpful for you as well.
Chaos is a way to Purge Stuck Energy
The world has a lot of stuck energy and if the world is going to give birth to a new energy that is inclusive, more feminine, and is based on working together, along with caring about the earth. This means the old and stagnant energy should be purged to allow for this new growth. It is like that saying, "don't put new wine in an old bottle".
What is happening right now is that the hidden and stuck energies are being called forward with a lot of flamboyancy. It is as if they are clinging to the past and puffing about like a male peacock, daring anyone to fight them. This is demanding attention and also a discussion about whether people see this path (and old stuck energy) as who they want to be. This process is creating an environment where people are questioning who they really are, how they want to live, and where they see their future. Some will embrace the old peacock, but most will say no - it is not representative of who they are, what they believe, and who they want to be. This process of exposing things that used to be hidden, ignored, or not discussed. Now, everything will be exposed. People will need to choose either fear or love.
When People Lose Something they Value, This is When They Seek Answers and Solutions
Often when someone goes through a loss (lose their home, their job, their money, their health, a loved one, etc) it is very difficult. It essentially forces a person to either learn from the experience and move on, or the person may choose to stay stuck. These are usually milestone moments that help a person define who they are and what they are made of. This time period is providing a similar opportunity for people to choose and grow, and choose to stay stuck.
It is in this process of pain and chaos that presents itself as a catalyst to become awakened. Yes, it is going to be a painful and difficult. Yes, America will not be the country it once was because the birthing process is difficult. It is survivable. The outcome can be an awakened energy on the earth. That is where we see things moving to.
This is a Period of Energetic Change
This is the last hurrah of the old guard. The new President (Mr. Trump) really is a great example of the old guard's stuck values - egocentric, power centric, exaggerated wealth and status, chauvinistic, treating and viewing women as objects, viewing people not like him as inferior, etc). He is a superb bad example of the type of person most do not trust, or even like. But he is an effective representative of the old guard, and this helps people clarify what they don't want in a leader or even as a neighbor.
Eventually the birthing process of this new era will be complete, and the new energy will be born and take root. That new energy will be more feminine, more inclusive, one of support, acceptance, and with love. It will also have a strong connection with Mother Earth. When this happens will be dependent on when society says they have had enough of the old and are ready for the new way of thinking and being.
