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?
