It’s Time to Heal
I am sharing a post from my friend Marsha Hankins. It’s so worthwhile that I also put it on my Facebook page. My gratitude to her for reminding us of the light, healing, and new possibilities that we can glean from all that triggers us, whether it be from the election or other things going on in our personal lives. All have hidden gifts in them that can lead us to wonderful new changes.
Our fears, judgments, and mirrors are all calling to us to have more love for, compassion for, and patience with, ourselves and others. Finding the higher meaning and highest truth, beyond the physical pain of emotion and limiting beliefs takes our effort to get unstuck. There are blessings in all of it. And whether we know it yet or not, when we heal ourselves, it is helping to heal all.
Judgment and Hypocrisy-It is Time to Heal
Judgment and hypocrisy ran rampant during the election, even among the lightworker community. It is time to heal. We each have the choice to work toward reunification or to allow the separation to further divide us.
Of the many topics I could have chosen for this post, I was guided to write about this today because I have heard too many comments and seen too many posts spewing out judgment and condemnation of those who could possibly consider voting for Trump and for those who could possibly consider voting for Clinton. The hypocrisy of the two sides is equally as dark. What do we do now?
Now that the election is over, some are in shock, some are still spewing out their anger, and some are contemplating what a Trump presidency is going to mean. If we cannot get past our judgments, we cannot resolve any of the issues. If we cannot heal our judgments, we can never fully stand in our light.
Anyone studying metaphysics, the Mystery Schools, or Eastern Wisdom knows the principle of mirrors, that “as within, so without.” To quote “The Man in the Mirror” by Michael Jackson, “No message could have been any clearer. If you wanna make the world a better place, take a look at yourself and then make a change.” Judgment is always self-judgment.
Like it or not, anything you have been in judgment of during this election (or at any other time) is the reflection of something for which you are still holding judgment on yourself. It could from the present, the earlier years of this life, or leftovers of a past life. No matter the origin, it is yours and the only way forward is to heal it. If we as the spiritual lighthouses cannot heal ourselves and model a positive way forward, how can we expect those who do not yet understand to heal?
Taking a third-dimensional perspective, both presidential candidates have modeled a long list of characteristics opening them to judgment. Neither belongs on a pedestal even though some have put them on one. We would each be better served if we honestly looked at the mirrors and honored both the positive reflections and the less positive reflections. If your buttons are getting pushed, those are your issues.
Where to Start
When looking at judgments, I encourage everyone to also consider their feelings about those who voted for the person they opposed. I have never known an election where most people were voting against a candidate rather than for a candidate. Why did people vote for Donald Trump or for Hillary Clinton?
Most of the people I have spoken with who voted for Trump are not racists, sexists, or uncompassionate reactionaries. They are people screaming for a change, people disenchanted with the way our government runs, and people, who for their own reasons, distrust Clinton.
Trump got 42% of the female vote, 8% of the black vote, and 29% of the Hispanic vote–higher than usual numbers for a Republican candidate. I am not saying any of these people are right or wrong. I am saying that these are issues to consider as you are evaluating your own judgments.
Most of the people I have spoken with who voted for Clinton are not in favor of the federal government operating as usual or running our lives. Most did not condone the many things of which she has been accused. Most of them were, however, terrified of Trump.
Nothing I write here is a judgment or an endorsement of either Mr. Trump or Mrs. Clinton. I am sharing observations that I hope everyone will consider as they look toward healing themselves and the nation.
Wow, do we have many mirrors to explore in this category!
To those who have condemned Donald Trump for his treatment of women, are they ready to throw Bill Clinton into the fire?
To those who feel the Democrats have been shoving their politics down our throats, are they chomping at the bit to get back at them?
To those who criticized the Republicans for not cooperating with President Obama because he was the president, have they joined the “He’s not my president” movement or support California seceding from the Union?
To those who feel Hillary is a liar and a crook, have they honestly considered how Donald has gained his fortune?
To those who are complaining about the people celebrating in the streets over Trump’s election, would they not have been in the streets celebrating if Clinton had been elected?
Both sides are spewing hatred and anger by accusing the other side of doing the same things they are doing. Judgment and hypocrisy abound and the mirrors are everywhere. The moment we step into arrogance, we have stepped out of our light. The moment we move into judgment, we have forgotten who we are as God. As spiritual lighthouses, what do we do now?
What is next?
I attempt to view everything in life from the perspective of Divine Wisdom. The lower-self does not know the bigger picture of our evolution even though it often believes that it does. The lower-self may think it knows the highest plan based on what the mental and emotion bodies perceive, but it is often mistaken. People who are so sure of what is going to happen are often surprised, if not shocked when the outcomes move in entirely different directions.
I am old enough to have witnessed many elections. Since I was of voting age, I do not believe there has been one election where people from both parties have not threatened to move to Canada if the opponent won. I have heard multiple doom-and-gloom predictions of what will come if the “wrong guy” wins, but we are still here moving along and living day-to-day.
I have been uplifted by those who have called or written to share the insights gained since Tuesday night. Many have expressed their surprise but also the realization that perhaps this could be the highest plan for the nation. I am not saying that Trump’s election is or is not the highest plan but considering the possibility can point to what may come next to help the country heal.
I cannot speak for the rest of the world, but Americans tend to remain ambivalent until issues are put directly in their faces. Our motto seems to be, if it doesn’t hurt, don’t fix it. And, it seems to need to hurt a great deal before people are moved to action. With the current dissension stirring the emotional pot, perhaps what has been festering beneath the surface will become more visible so that it can be healed.
The situation would have been the same if Mrs. Clinton had won the election. This country has much healing to do and neither political party is ready to lead the healing at this time. We have more breakdown to experience before we can breakthrough. We are being given an opportunity. The question is, what will we do with it?
A Lightworker’s Call to Action
I have often counseled students never to challenge the universe because Spirit will very quickly put you in your place and show you a new way. These surprises are usually calls-to-action as well.
On September 11, 2001, our nation received a huge 911 call. Lightworkers from around the planet as well as from the USA came together to pray for healing and look for ways to help others understand and cope with those events. We still have not healed and too much energy is still put into hatred, anger, and fear.
Our nation is facing another crisis point which is totally self-generated. We have an opportunity to stand in the power of our light, the strength of our love, and the humility of our own healing to guide this country into unity. There is the saying that if you are not part of the solution, you are part of the problem. Know that we can each look in our hearts, go to our own inner guidance, and find our own way to help our nation heal in the years to come. And by all means, let’s start with our own judgment and hypocrisy–and let’s start today.
