Elections, a blessing in disguise?


Elections USA

Until now I steered away from anything to do with this. I don’t live in the US but have a lot of new (online) friends that do, so I have seen their struggle. This couldn’t have been easy. Especially the people I am attracted to must feel defeated right now.

But yes, the unthinkable happened, or is happening. Donald Trump will win the election. That’s it. The world is ending. It’s over. Done. Humanity is f*cked. I feel the hate, anger, frustration, fear, defeat, sadness. Will it divide the US? Who knows.

The general energy the world is sending out to the US right now is terrible. I have come to know many Americans as wonderful loving people. Something I thought I would never admit, just because I only knew America from television and film. And thought they were all loud mouthed air heads. Kind of like Trump 😉 But this is really not the case. It’s all about the not knowing….

But is it really over?

What if we think about this another way? As a “blessing in disguise”?

What if, people who are more like me did not vote at all. Because they felt they had no choice. I would not have gone voting, as the things that matter to me the most, nature, animals, environment, weren’t very clear on both agendas. But maybe I would have voted for Clinton, because then maybe my favourite idealist Bernie would have had some influence…. I haven’t voted for years in my own country, simply because I no longer believe that politicians in general have the best interest at heart for the people.

The president is kind of like a puppet, the PR person for the whole government. I really thought Obama was something else (and I still do as a person), but in the end, all the promises they make? Hard to keep. The only danger with Trump is that if he doesn’t get his way he might go into a fit like little children do….

Is it bad for the world? Really? Us=the world? I think not. That’s kind of arrogant to say. Maybe it’s bad for the US. Maybe even not. What if other countries are like, ok, time to stand on our own feet and no longer be an US groupie….

Universally: what if we see this like the last cramps of the patriarchal system. To hold on to old systems and beliefs. People like Mr Trump are gaining ground everywhere! He is not the only one. Why? What if it’s a test. To see if we are ready for this new paradigm? Living from the heart? Are you able to give love and compassion to anyone? Even the ones like Mr Trump?

The people in general are giving out a signal by voting for him or not voting for any candidate because they felt they didn’t have a choice. No matter the outcome, this signal must be addressed. This is a symptom of our diseased society. It’s time to look at the underlying problems going in. Loss of a feeling of community, the difference between classes. The people who blindly follow people like Mr Trump, or on the other side maybe even spiritual gurus, they play the blame game. They are the ones that don’t take responsibility for their own lives and choices, they act like victims. People like Trump, Le Penn, our own Wilders, they know how to speak to those people. Basically they are excellent at marketing, because they see the gap. And they promise to make it better for you. Not with you. For you. Come here. Daddy will take care of everything. Sit back and relax. You don’t have to do anything. I will fix it. The people don’t see that this most of the time is a “quick” fix. They don’t oversee the long-term effects, and more important, the underlying feeling of void and emptiness isn’t addressed. It’s like taking drugs, or alcohol. Underneath the wound will fester on. But for now, they have put a band-aid on it for them.

What if this has a what I call Cesar Milan effect. People with dogs will all know who that is. I really don’t like him very much, or how he handles dogs. It doesn’t mean he doesn’t believe in what he does. I’ve seen him in interviews and he just doesn’t know any better. And he is also a quick-fix giver. People like that. Not much work put in, just overpower and put a band-aid on it. We gave him the power. We let him grow. But…. On the other hand, the dog behaviour specialists and trainers that used other methods, they united, made more and more people aware there is another way. Most of them even not by putting down Cesar, but by showing the people the other way! Maybe this whole Trump thing will give the people who were lurking in the shadows the courage to stand up for what they believe in, and join forces in a positive way.

Maybe it’s all a test to see how strong the power of positive thinking, law of attraction, love really is. I have seen lots of people sending their condolences to the US, it’s almost like a grieving process. But…. What if we started over showering Mr Trump with love, send him massive healing and love, break down the wall around his heart before he starts building them in real life. What if we could show that the collective way of doing this is stronger than negativity and hate. Let’s show that the power of the heart will change the world. And are you ready to fully embrace the shadow side? I feel that people like Trump are getting stronger just because the people who live from a place of love deny their shadow sides. And isn’t it the best test ever if you can show as much love and compassion to the haters, to the “dark ones”, as you would to like-minded people? People you love. Maybe it is even so, that these “dark ones” even need your love and compassion more. Let’s show that the power of the heart will change the world.

Don’t get me wrong. I dislike the man, always have. But it’s not about him really. Something bigger is going on. And yes, you can just sit still and trust that “this is just as it is supposed to be”. Or you can take action. And not by taking up arms or  and blocking each other on Facebook. But by showing love and compassion towards each other. Show real interest, find out why someone has certain ideas. Start building a community based on understanding, respect and love. Share what you have abundance of. If that is material of not, share.

Don’t go along in this negative, fear based, panicky energy. Let’s keep sending love. And I know, even though he is a “bad thing” for the things I stand for, I have just put him in a blanket of love and approached this from a whole different perspective.

I wish all of you, either in the US or elsewhere, the strength and wisdom to deal with this, but don’t feel defeated….

Love and light,

Diana

Ps. there is something with these numbers….. 9-11, 11-9?? Big changes and shifts…. We notate November 9th as 9-11 in our country…. Weird right? I know 9 is about endings and new beginnings, and it’s also a 9 year this year…. Mmmm…..

Ps 2: this too shall pass 😉 Remember Rome, Napoleon, The German Reich… in the end it will crumble and fall….

Just little me, trying to wake people up, trying to help our mother earth. Always learning about me, about life. I am a therapist in natural medicine for animals and an animalcommunicator. Forever young, but an old soul. Passionate about music. Trying to rediscover my creative sides. Boring people with my "wisdoms" and quotes. Trying to accept the fact that I belong to the human race. Building up courage to take a leap of faith. These blogs are my thoughts, my emotions, my experiences, my truths. They are not based on any scientific facts or what so ever. I cannot take responsibility for my blogs causing you to experience any discomfort ;-)

  1. I agree with the need to respond with caring by building a community. But as to this not impacting you, I disagree. Trump has already led multi-national businesses to change plans based on a single tweet. And it has been made clear he has no intention of giving up Twitter.

    1. Thank you for your comment. I wrote this blog just after the elections, and I am seeing more and more that this will all not be “easy”. And yes, I do not live in the US, but we have our own elections this year, and we have a Trump-like figure that is high up in the polls at this moment… So I think this will be deeper then I had initially thought and hoped 😦
