Well, I actually had a totally different post planned for today. But, with the recent events as they are, I wanted to make some remarks. The post initially scheduled for today will be posted Saturday instead.
I've kept this blog very non-political, only really expressing my opinions if someone asked. And, I'm not interested in making this post about my opinion, either.
However, this has been possibly one of the most divisive, controversial elections in recent history. I felt I'd be somewhat remiss to not at least say a few words. 🙂
I apologize to my email subscribers, because this post, at least the first part of it, will be similar to the message I sent out yesterday. I wasn't sure initially if I wanted to create an actual blog post about this subject, but decided to in the end.
However, read to the end, as there are some additional points of discussion you may find interesting. 😀
Don't Forget: You're Still a Creator
It's somewhat sad how much I see people giving away their power. Either they believe a certain candidate has all the answers and will solve all their problems, or the opposing candidate will be the worst and create more problems for them.
But, remember, you are still a creator. You are the sole creator of your life, unless you give that power to someone else. But, really, why would you?
We come from a world that believes that we can be victimized, oppressed, and our rights taken away. But, that can never happen if we retain our power of creation. Unless, of course, you want to be oppressed. 😮
Of course we're not perfect at it. But the point is, the power lies with you.
As I've said countless times before, if you don't like what you see in your life, change it. At least, set a goal and work towards changing it.
Is the election important? Of course it is! I was very passionate about this election in particular, and made my opinion known. I believe every citizen should vote, because it is the only way we can make our voices truly heard.
But, it doesn't mean that anyone can influence your life that you don't allow to do so.
So, whether you're happy with the result or not, remember that you are still 100% responsible for the events that transpire in your life.
The President Is a Manifestation of the Country
Just as every person has their manifestations, so groups as a whole have their collective manifestations.
And, as such, each president is a manifestation of the country, and the vibration active at the time.
Again, no matter whether you think it's a good or bad thing that Trump won, the truth is that he's the best match to the country's vibration as it is at this moment. Nothing else is possible. If he weren't, he couldn't have been elected.
Even if he isn't your individual manifestation, meaning he isn't a match to you and your values, he still is a match to the collective vibration, and that has to be respected. It couldn't be otherwise.
But if that feels bad to you, then it's a great opportunity to look at yourself, which is what life is always inviting us to do. Ask yourself what within you is being reflected by this external turmoil?
And so, in that way, he really is a match to your vibration, because he will be triggering the things that you need to look at within yourself.
If he is a more positive match to you, then that is great, too. The point is that no matter what you're seeing in the Whitehouse, and the country as a whole, it's all reflecting whatever is going on within you, to the extent that it triggers an emotional response.
I saw a lot of people on Facebook today who are afraid. Many of them are minorities, such as gay, transgendered, and so forth.
So what is this situation reflecting about them? It's showing the insecurity that they still hold about their situation. They see society as becoming less and less accepting of them. Is it? I cannot tell, because I am not living in their shoes.
But, I know that they are creators. I know that I have some friends in similar situations, but who are perfectly secure in their choices and orientation.
And I know that this will be a great opportunity to bring some of those insecurities up to the surface.
The Collective Vibration Is Always Rising
The great thing is that our vibration is always rising. We are always evolving. Even when it seems like things are bad, it is just resistance coming up to the surface, so that it can be released and we can move on to something even greater.
For instance, acceptance of homosexuality has been a big struggle for this country for quite a while. And yet, just within the last year, we saw gay marriage be legalized. Yes, there were, and still are, difficulties, but the collective vibration rose to a level that this was possible.
The same is true for every major movement throughout history: civil rights, women's suffrage, etc. There was a period marked by intense struggle, followed by a major breakthrough and rise in vibration.
We can never go backwards. We are never at risk of de-evolving. There may be temporary discomfort, but in the end, we wind up better off than before.
As a rule, the world never likes change. Unfortunately, change often comes only after a lot of suffering. It doesn't have to be that way, but it often is.
I see this time as a time of transition. Transition to what, I'm not entirely sure yet. But, I maintain that this is the most important time in the history of this country, and likely the world as well.
We're at the intersection between the old and the new. Many old, antiquated values are being discarded, though they often put up a good fight. 🙂 New values are being introduced.
At any such transitional time, there is upheaval. There is fear, because people fear what is new and unfamiliar.
But, it is only temporary. We will settle into the new, eventually.
We've been working at that for decades now, but this is the critical point, in my opinion.
We will just have to see how Trump deals with these new energies. I'm sure it won't be easy, nor would it be for any president.
A Prediction of the Future
I was curious what the Tarot might have to say about the next four years with Trump as president. So, I decided to draw three cards and do a quick reading on it.
Now, before proceeding, I will say that I voted for Clinton. Actually I was a Sanders supporter in the primaries, but after Clinton became the democratic nominee, I supported her.
It's incredibly easy to let your bias influence the cards. However, I've also been reading for a very long time, and have experience with giving neutral, unbiased readings.
But I wanted to make my bias known before posting the reading, just so it's out there.
But I spent a moment or two in meditation, clearing my mind of any preconceived judgments, and drew these cards:
I was actually shocked by this reading.
Firstly, we have all very friendly cards. Not only are the meanings of these cards themselves very beneficent, but they also work together very well.
The central card is always the principal. Here it is Eight of Disks, which is entitled Prudence.
Prudence is all about taking it slowly. Slow and steady wins the race, and all that. We don't take excessive risks.
This tells me that there will certainly be beneficial changes made, but they will not necessarily come all at once.
It reminds me a lot of the law of attraction, honestly. The best course is to set your intention, and wait for the result. Ans so with Prudence, the work is done, and then we await the fruit of our labor.
Now modifying this card is Three of Cups, which is entitled Abundance. This is not only pointing to material abundance, but also emotional abundance, or the emotional enjoyment of that physical wealth.
This says to me that because of the prudent actions discussed above, the economy will most definitely improve, and overall morale will rise.
The third card is the Ace of Disks. The ace of every suit is just the seed of that idea. The disks suit of Tarot has primarily to do with material gain, or other physical issues.
The Ace of Disks here says to me that this will be the beginning of a new, much more prosperous time, in agreement with Three of Cups above. Because it is the ace, and not quite developed into the suit yet, these changes probably won't be all visible within Trump's term. However, we will see the beginnings of those changes, and they will grow to be much more in time.
So in summary, due to prudent management, the economy will improve in definitive ways, and we will take a new, more beneficial direction in the long-run.

I know politics is a very sensitive topic, and all of you have been great so far, but just so it's out there, please remain respectful in your discussion, as we all hold differing opinions.
