Dear President Barak Obama

November 15th, 2016 Posted in 2016 election ...

 

Dear Mr President

Please explain why we as a party, do not fight for what is right and just?

Twice now we have won the popular vote and lost the election. This most recent event is truly horrifying and as a therapist every person I talk to is deeply concerned and many are down right afraid.

This current situation will harm our democracy in ways that will go on for generations and our very planet is at risk. What will happen to your girls and their children and all the children if we do not have a healthy planet?

We must fight, protest loudly and change the way voting is done in this country. The electoral college is obsolete and yet in the 40 yrs. I have been writing to presidents from Nixon forward to do away with this system … No one takes action.

I understand the issues of saving face and doing what he said he would not do, but in that pride are we not giving up? I know the American people, have watched since Nixon, and Watergate, traveled in the segregated south as a child and this feels so wrong.

MY forefathers fought for his democracy, since before its inception and as a distant relative of Martha Washington and Abigail Adams, I feel I have to speak up for our democracy. We must overturn Citizens United, so the Koch brothers and their ilk do not lead the agenda moving forward.

Investigations into voter suppression and tampering, this “president-elect” man’s connects to Russia, his business dealing out of this country, his lack of paying taxes and transparency about his taxes etc etc I could go one and on.

All need to be investigated. ASSIGN A special Prosecutor IMMEDIATELY,  like we had during Watergate.

How I wish for a Sam Ervin.

Is it not within your power to do this since he and his staff,  who questioned your birth would like to rip your legacy apart ? Not out of spite but out of a deep concern for this country.

I hear again and again, “give the man a chance”…. From democrats mouths, seriously? We may not have a vote in 4 yrs and our planet may never be the same unless someone has the courage to act. You Sir, could be that man.

I also wish to say, what a delight it has been to have you as president and how sad countless people are to see you move onto your next chapter. You and the first lady are one classy act.

DO not think that causing a ruckus will change our love and appreciation for you both and your service to our country.

I come from a lineage of people creating a ruckus and what was formed was our, not so perfect union, we call the UNITED States of America.

Sincerely Elizabeth

Comments Off on Dear President Barak Obama

There is something much deeper going on in this election….

Again I do not comment on politics usually but I am seeing somethings that are very troubling this election cycle, beyond the normal nasty reteroic.

The energy of the past few yrs. reminds me of the time when Lincoln was president, a huge divide existed then  and still exists now and the racial issues still persist.

BUT the energy has shifted in some dramatic ways. First, when President Obama was elected, we all had great hope that deep change would be made and sadly much of that was stymied by the divisiveness & agendas of certain members of congress. The senator from KY was a key player in this.

So anger, frustration and disappointment have become large factors in this election.

And the underlying energy of division is also exemplified by the fact that a woman is running for the highest office in our land.

This represents a fundamental shift in energy ….. the white male is no longer the sole governing form of power and they are deeply afraid that their power will be subsumed. They hate Hillary for being a woman and cannot abide that a woman could be in charge.

Neurology studies have found that when a woman speaks it triggers a response in men’s brains that takes them back to their childhood, where their mother was the person in charge. So woman are labeled by men as shrill etc not based on their character  but based their brains response.

Linguistics shares that little boys at play are more into one-upmanship ( hierarchical thinking ) while girls tend to find similarities and commonality ( non hierarchical thinking)… this too is playing apart in the energy we are seeing. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p8yhGIft8Q8

Further on a more spiritual level the energy for decades has been moving from power driven leveled  hierarchical systems to a more fluid, inclusive and spiraling non-hierarchical system. To understand these two ideas  think of a set of stairs vs  a drop of water that ripples out into a pool.

The old hierarchical system was governed by male energy and the fluid encompassing spiral is more aligned with the female energy. So we are in the midst of this deep change energetically and the male energy is kicking and screaming as it’s power is released, so that a more balanced synergy of the male and female energies can combine and aspire to something new.

That a woman is running is not a surprise, nor is it surprising to see the negative male energy on the opposing side.

This negative divisive power driven bullying force that has consumed us is no longer the energy we need , nor it is an energy that is aligned with our time.

In any transition of energy we need stability, civility and a marriage of the male and female in balance is communion with each other so that the negative shadow does not take over.

We are at a precipice and we need to keep in mind and ask the question within ourselves… what model do we want to have to govern our nation….. a force of fear-based negativity that dominates or a stabilizing force that encompasses the whole & allows for the dynamic to change.

Fear will break us apart…. and as the Civil War showed us we are stronger together than apart.

What is your choice….. can you balance your inner male and female and step into this new energy?
