A lot has been happening since the shock of our recent election and the significant actions our new president has been taking from his start in the white house...from the members he is electing to our new cabinet, to threatening to take away basic human rights for women concerning our bodies and the right to choose, to the immigration ban for Muslims and more.
His actions and the declarations he is signing are likely to affect most, if not all of us adversely.
Why? Because we are all connected and in the grand scheme of things, we are all one.
Trump's actions are causing more controversy and concern than any other president entrusted before him.
Many are disturbed down to the core of our being as we observe Trump violate our constitutional rights and the rights of those around us.
You might ask yourself...what is the positve side of all of this?
I see people are waking up and collectively saying "hell no"...this is NOT okay...not in OUR house.
Many who have been tuning out the news for years are now tuning in to it, realizing it is important to know what is going on in our government for the sake of our country and the world. These are extremely volatile times with several world leaders taking on more aggressive egotistical positions. They are playing 'chicken' with the people they serve for the sake of being on top and being "right".
(There is also more involved here that I am aware of than is appropriate for me to share at this time.)
BALANCE: I believe it's important to be spiritual and grounded when it comes to knowing what is happening around us, in our government, and for many of us, with humanity as a whole.
I was listening to Marianne Williamson at a Unity service she spoke at recently
and one of the points she made was this:
Donald Trump is like a daddy who has very serious issues.
We can love him on a high level as the sentient beings we are (spiritual), but we are NOT going to let him burn our house down." (practical) I thought this is an excellent analogy.
He is on a destructive path that is dangerous for all of us and we are rising up to say that most of what he is doing is unacceptable and will not be tolerated. We are a democratic system, not a fascist one.
to learn about Marianne's Tuesday livestream talks. I listen regularly and she is right on.
Attending the Women's March on Washington Saturday January 21'st was no less than incredible, powerful, and inspiring. Demonstrations like the ones that started with the Womens' march have not been seen since the 1960's! Better late than really late...
The experience of coming together to advocate for Womens' rights felt important to be involved in and I went to Washington to take part with my sisters.
The estimate of 3-400,000 marchers ended up drawing over 1 million women who marched to the excitement and amazing of all of us. The Washington Womens' march led the way for many sister marches to take place all over the country and around the world. Congratulations and kudos to all of you reading this who attended and are continuing to take actions for our collective cause.
