As an empath we learn how to discern our energy and emotions from that of others and I am so grateful I followed my guidance in stepping back because the gift I received has been invaluable.
I watched the results as they were coming in Tuesday night, and I could not believe what I was seeing. I stayed plugged into the social media streams where I saw and felt the reactions others were having until I realized it was igniting anger within me.
Finally, I had to turn it off and the moment I did I felt my energy completely shift from anxiety, shock and disappointment to peace. This was probably the most tangible experience I’ve had around how the energy of the collective can impact an empath and the personal power we have to shift it.
The sun came up November 9th and it was confirmed that in fact the United States of American had a new President, Donald J Trump. I checked into my energy and surprisingly I felt an immense sense of calm and peace and knowing that WE are going to be ok and that all is well. I was surprised by the feeling in my body considering how much this candidate had triggered me during the campaigning.
I decided to check in with my Facebook friends and as I scrolled through I was bombarded with emotional angst, deep grief, anger and outrage. It was a strange feeling because I was very clear in my own energy of peace, calm and inner stillness and then suddenly I was feeling all of this other stuff.
It was very clear that it wasn’t my personal emotions and feelings. So, I did what any strong Priestess would do, I called on a few people who know my heart and know how to pray and asked for prayer and love. Then I went outside and sat down upon Pachamama and I let the tears flow out of me and the pain flow through me. My head was spinning and nausea set in, but I stayed with it and I allowed her to help me process and transmute all that was there, because even though I knew it wasn’t my personal grief and anger, I knew it was there for a reason. I knew what to do with it and I knew the benefit it would be to the collective that was hurting.
I made a conscious effort to avoid scrolling through too much of the projections on Facebook so that I could maintain my personal sense of inner peace, however, as an empath you often still feel the impact of the collective. I ended up with a splitting headache and had to turn in early Wednesday night. I woke up today Thursday November 11th and can still feel a little residual from all of it. But, I still feel very peaceful inside and hopeful about our future as humans living in harmony and peace. In fact I feel very strong in my knowing that WE TOTALLY GOT THIS!!!
I took my seat outside this morning with Pachamama and this is what I would like to share. I realized I have never felt my oneness with humanity as strongly as I have the past two days. As I sat there exploring this realization tears began to flow again, but this time they were tears of deep reverence and gratitude and they were mine.
I decided to test this awareness and feeling of oneness so I thought of all the Trump supporters and I felt nothing but love. I thought of all the Hillary supporters and I felt nothing but love. There was no judgement, there was no resentment, there was only love and this deep awareness that WE ARE ONE.
As I sat there wet faced I decided to test this a bit more. So I extended my awareness and energy outward to the rapist, to the racist, to the murderer, to the ones destroying our earth and killing our sacred animal kingdom. I felt nothing but love. My tears and emotions intensified but now they were not tears of gratitude, but rather tears of shame and guilt because in that moment I was intensely aware of my oneness with these people as well and yet I have contributed to the very energy that causes them to commit the crimes they commit… BELIEF IN SEPARATION.
Suddenly I became very clear of these things…
- If you look out upon our world and see “THEM” there is work to do.
- If you look at a Trump supporter and feel judgement and separation, there is work to do.
- If you look at a Hillary supporter and feel judgement and separation, there is work to do.
- If you look at someone who holds a different point of view than you and feel judgement and separation, there is work to do.
- If you look at a pedophile, a rapist, a drug addict, a murderer and feel separation and superiority between you and them there is work to do.
- If you look at a person of color, a Christian, a Muslim, a woman, a man, a gay/lesbian/transgender/bisexual and place judgement, feelings of superiority and therefore separation upon them there is work to do.
- If you look at a person you perceive to be “not as conscious” as you and feel superiority and separation, there is work to do.
So, here we are Donald Trump is our President elect and I see fear consuming a very high number of people because they are looking out at the world and they see “THEM”- the Trump supporters, the racist, the KKK, the misogynist, the bullies. Guess what? You are in the same energy of separation they are. Know what this means? You will be aligning and attracting more and more of this energy into your experience.
When we are viewing through a lens of separation it is because we are embodying that and it is inevitable we will move into fear. Because this very belief of separation is rooted in fear. Therefore, we begin to attract more of this energy and our experiences become a mirror of this fear and separation.
For me my prayer and my work is on neutrality. If there is no neutrality there can only be polarity and in this polarity, unity does not exist. There is one end of the pole and the other. There is “US” and “THEM”. In neutrality, WE can access the awareness of our ONENESS and move through this world embodying that oneness.
Oneness does not mean we are all the same or that we all must hold the same beliefs or points of view. Oneness is simply honoring and loving one another unconditionally in all of our diversity. The more we embody the consciousness of Oneness the more our actions and interactions will reflect this. It is only from this place that we will ever achieve unity, peace and harmony on this planet.
It would be great to have a President, a leader who embodies this consciousness but it’s not up to one leader. It requires that all of us be leaders and this means taking responsibility for how we personally are creating and contributing to separation.
If we look out and see “THEM” there is work to do.
In love, light and ONENESS,
