“I have been driven many times upon my knees by the overwhelming conviction that I had no where else to go. My own wisdom and that of all about me seemed insufficient for that day.”~Abraham Lincoln
I have wanted to write this post for the past couple of weeks but I, like a great number of people, have found myself grieving as we say good-bye to our country as we know it.
Make no mistake we will prevail; we will survive. We will get through it and come out the other side with a greater capacity to love, a greater sense of unity and much more awake.
Many have compared what’s going on to the rise of Hitler and I agree. I am Jewish and throughout my life I have seen and see all too clearly what bigotry, fear and hate does to people. Is this truly history repeating itself? There is no doubt in my mind we are experiencing the same beginnings.
It shatters my heart in a million little pieces to recognize the overwhelming (and very sad) part of what happened in the election is that it had to happen. In order to take a step up in our consciousness we had to shine a light on the that which was hidden and, somewhat silently, running in the back ground like a computer virus.
“America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves.”~Abraham Lincoln
It happened on our watch…
What is going on now is showing us that despite the progress and tolerance we thought we had, there is an underlying faction of people who are filled with hate due to ignorance and fear. This is not name calling. It is truth. These people, for whatever reason, feel marginalized or threatened by those they do not understand.
Make no mistake. They have always been there slowly stewing and adding fuel to their fire. They retreated into the shadows, pumping up their egos, growing their judgements and blaming their discourse on others while we were moving forward into the light. The crushing truth of why it needed to happen lies in a universal truth; any time there is a step up in vibration, the light shines into the shadows and what was hidden comes to the surface.
“There are no new truths, but only truths that have not been recognized by those who have perceived them without noticing.”~Mary McCarthy
We WILL prevail…
In order for us to take a step up and move forward, there needs to be a great healing. We also must sadly acknowledge what we may have pushed into our own shadows.
We must admit we didn’t hear what those who still experience racism, misogyny, xenophobia, homophobia and bigotry were telling us; that it is alive and well and living among us. We must admit that what might have seemed like isolated incidences were not, in fact, isolated.
Many did not speak up because they were taught it’s dangerous to do so, others didn’t speak up due to the very real fear of retaliation and yet others DID speak up but, all to often, it fell on deaf ears.
It’s time to come together and heal. It is time to speak up for what is right and just. No longer can we turn a blind eye to the truth. What happened in the election didn’t create racism, misogyny, xenophobia, homophobia and bigotry. It gave it permission to come out of hiding.
“Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that.”~Martin Luther King Jr.
Keep in mind that the energy we are seeing and experiencing is designed to isolate, divide and conquer everyone. This includes dividing those who would band together to stop it. There is strength in numbers and if we are divided against ourselves in any way, shape or form we further fuel the divide.
Each of us has a role to play in transmuting the hate into a thing of the past. Our collective roles begin with each of us looking within to shine a light on where we are divided with ourselves. When we are connected and conscious there is a cause and effect that happens in our outer world.
Step into the light
Whatever you choose to do, do it grounded. Do it consciously with certainty, resolve and loving intent. Seek out those who will help you heal. Take time to reset and regroup yourself daily. Take a social media break. Be kind to those who support you. If you think they should do more, lovingly tell them what you need.
If you find yourself overwhelmed by all of this you are not alone. Seek guidance and professional help if you need it. I launched a series of free (live) weekly meditations called Awakening Souls Meditations you can get access to online or by phone. Join us to release energy, heal the divide and re-connect with spirit.

Yes, each of us has a role to play. Choose yours consciously and with loving intent. Be sure to step out of the energy at least once a day then work diligently towards your goal. We’ve got a big task ahead and we will most certainly need our energy to return to love.~Shine Your Light Debbie
