To all of you feeling an array of feelings in the wake of our tumultuous presidential elections, I want to say your emotions are very valid and not surprising.
We are sentient beings who live and die from our hearts. As humans, we are designed to live in community, as we are essentially “pack” animals. Over the last 50 plus years, several generations and millions of individuals have focused themselves in some fashion, towards helping our nation find equality of human rights.
The civil rights movement, women’s liberty, gay rights, minority acceptance, and more have enabled us to live in greater harmony and acknowledgement of our differences and also our fellowships. One of the obvious culminations was the election of our first African-American President, Obama, 8 years ago.
Now our familiar tableau of equalities and liberties have been suddenly overturned with the election of Donald Trump, as a man whose words express discrimination and exclusion, instead of inclusion and our melting pot of ethnicities, genders, and roles in our culture.
This unknown future of what our lifestyle and environment will look and feel like is creating enormous feelings of instability, fear, grief, anger, and confusion for millions. These feelings, as I said, are real and do affect your physiology: your adrenal glands, sympathetic nervous system, heart, and even your immune system are under duress.
I am a homeopath of over 30 years, and a certified spiritual healer of 10 years. I want to reassure those of you who follow my writings, workshops, and teachings that I will be providing you with some resources of emotional and spiritual support in the weeks and months to come.
My treasured co-teacher, Susanne Kingsbury, and myself are creating a specialized audio-video meditation and expressive healing series we will present to you all in the days and weeks to come.
As a nation in need, both of us are deeply compelled to offer our skills and energy to those of you in duress or just feeling confused or deflated.
Please watch for us on social media and YouTube. #NationInNeed #election PTSD.
My heart and spirit is with you all. Please know we both care deeply about bringing healing and strength to our culture. As we go through the changes and transformations at hand, we can all come out the other side more brilliant and aware than ever.
Believe in yourself, in your truth, in our unique gifts, and your courage to be happy and whole again.
