The Sad Truth: It had to happen…now what?

Abraham Lincoln “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.

Now what?

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.

For a calendar of events including detailed instructions on how to join the Awakening Souls weekly meditations CLICK HERE.

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

“Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes.

The ones who see things differently. They’re not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them.

About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.”~Rob Siltanen

All of us have certain inalienable rights. Each of us is an individual. We have different thoughts, vibrations, and goals. Each of us have the right to create something of our choosing. It’s a beautiful concept that we are all one, because we are, but at the same time our human experience allows us to be  independent thinkers and creators. The creators, yes sometimes they are called the crazy ones or misfits, are the ones who forge their own path for the good of all.

If we didn’t have these creators and independent thinkers the internet would not exist. We would not have amazing books to read, rockets to the moon, cars, or even some of the things we may take for granted like electricity, telephones or running water in our homes.

We came here this lifetime to learn but also to allow others to learn from us. There are energies that we tap into which are part of the universe and the very earth itself. However, when you become dependent on someone or something outside of you in order to walk your path, it is not YOUR path! You have every right to embark upon the path you choose. This is about you declaring your right to be here. Your right to create. To add to whole.

Yes, we can swim in the sea of universal consciousness and allow those waters to flow through us but each of us has an individual consciousness and very unique vibration. It is up to each of us as individuals to choose (or not choose) how to live our lives.

If you are reading this, you have a body and it is your supreme right to make your own choices. You have the right to follow your dreams! You have the right to find what is true for you. You have the right to choose happiness. You have the right to be who you are and you certainly have the right to live and make conscious choices!

So in the tradition of the US Constitution preamble, declare YOUR independence!

“I (insert your name), in order to form a more perfect union with mind, body & spirit establish justice, insure personal tranquility, provide for happiness, promote and secure the blessings of freedom toward myself & others, do hereby declare that I have a right and deserve to live a conscious life filled with love, truth and infinite abundance.”

No one knows better than you what’s best for you so declare yourself! You have a right to your knowledge; your ability to see and communicate and listen to your inner voice. You have the right to create a beautiful life! You have the right to love and do what feels good. You have the right to create your dreams.

You have the right to have and express your emotions! You have the right to use ALL your abilities! Own who you are as a spiritual being in a body. Own that you have a right to be here and you have a lot to offer!  Be who you truly are in thought, in deed and how your live your life.

Will you be one of the crazy ones, the misfits, the rebels or the troublemakers that changes and shapes the world in the days to come? If so, declare your independence and….~Shine Your Light Debbie
