Finding Peace Post-Election #election2016 #healthyspirituality

Yesterday’s election results brought celebration

Peace teens

for many Americans, and yet, perhaps especially for many of us who are more spiritual than religious, the election may tempt us into frustration and despair, projecting a dismal future for both America and the world.  My first sense of peace about the election came Tuesday night, before I knew the results, and after I meditated.  What was happening as I watched the returns felt painfully insane to me, so I asked for higher guidance so that I would not be so judgmental about American voters.  Automatically, what came to me is that they are hurting.  A large proportion of the population in America has been hurting.

Underneath all anger lies fear and/or hurt (generally both).  However, because we live in a culture with patriarchal values (which, of course, explains how we elected Donald Trump), people in our culture are taught as children to ignore their own feelings, never to express emotional vulnerability lest they be taken advantage of, and are left having to attack outwards because of their inner feeling of vulnerability.

That is exactly what Donald Trump does, and exactly what the American people have done:  feel hurt/afraid/anxious/unheard/left out, then shut down their own feelings because they don’t dare feel vulnerable, and attacked outwards, often blaming someone else for the problems.  This represents an incredible lack of wisdom, precisely because it neglects feminine values of emotional awareness, vulnerability in relationships in order to communicate honestly and effectively, and compassion for the feelings of others.

I feel peace now that I am aware that this vote was made out of deep pain, not just ignorance, lack of wisdom, and lack of sacred feminine awareness, acceptance, and values.  I understand deep pain, and I can only care that it be healed.

But more than that, the lesson I read in A Course in Miracles this morning was perfect, because it reminded me that our answers and what we truly need do not come from this world, but from our inner connection with God.  Lesson 200 of ACIM states: “There is no peace except the peace of God.”

Politics are not the answer for creating a world that knows the energy-consciousness of love, peace, compassion, kindness, equality, generosity, divinity-within-diversity, and so on.  The reality is that we find these aspects within ourselves, as we find the Divine within.  Politics can become a tool for manifesting these intentions in the world, but the inner work comes first.  We must first find Christ/Buddha/Enlightenment within in order to manifest this beautiful consciousness of loving and compassionate non-attachment in the outer world.

Today, in response to America’s apparent lack of wisdom, I dedicate myself to seeking this inner peace and wisdom, and living from it, so that I can help embody the Presence of Divine Peace and Divine Wisdom in the world.  Will you join me?

I also feel moved to create Wisdom Schools.  We need to teach wisdom to children through meditation, mindfulness, feminine sacred values in balance with sacred masculine values, yoga, healthy psychology, healthy spirituality, and cooperative values.  I am committed to promoting the Mastermind Stars program and/or to creating Wisdom Schools.  Will you join me?

I cannot do this alone, so I invite your support and your involvement in creating Wisdom Schools across America, and around the world.  Please let me know if you can or will help:  Thank you and Namaste!

Love and Light,

About selfrealizationtherapy

I am a healer, life coach, author, and spiritual teacher. While I am ordained in the Christian tradition, I have also studied Eastern spiritual disciplines and practices, including Raja Yoga Meditation; Intuitive Coaching; Reiki; Falun Gong; and other forms of energy healing for both people and animals. I am available for distance healing and spiritual coaching via phone, Skype, WhatsApp, or Facetime; please email me at: to schedule a session. My goal is to assist you in connecting with your Higher Self to find fulfillment, peace, health, and happiness in life. I typically work with people for about six weeks, and then they either take classes with me and advance more, or simply go their happy way. While I cannot guarantee results, many clients find that in a few short weeks, more is accomplished than could be with years of traditional talk therapy. Born on the equator in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, I grew up moving back-and-forth between Africa and the United States my whole childhood and youth. We lived in three different countries in Africa, and three different states in the USA. I now live in Maryland, close to Washington, DC. I was widowed at the age of 28 when my 34-year-old husband died suddenly of a cerebral aneurysm that hemorrhaged, leaving me with an infant and a toddler. This crisis led me to believe that God loves us even when "bad" things happen, and also led me to pursue spirituality and become a minister. In 1996, thanks to "Autobiography of a Yogi" by Paramhansa Yogananda, and a meditation class called Raja Yoga, I started on an Eastern spiritual path, a journey which included becoming a healer and a mystic. On Thursday, May 27, 2010, I experienced what I call an Enlightenment Vision, in which I ascended and was blessed by Ascended Masters of many faiths: Master Lao Tzu, Mother Mary, Mary Magdalene, Jesus Christ, Lord Buddha, Paramahansa Yogananda, High Priest Melchizedek, Lady Kwan Yin, Master Usui, and then by the Seven Archangels of the Seven Rays. After this vision, the teachings in Higher Consciousness began. Apparently, my crown chakra was opened, and direct contact with the Ascended Masters has been possible ever since. My message to everyone is: this is possible for you to achieve as well, although getting there is not necessarily quick or easy. With a Master of Divinity degree from Vanderbilt University Divinity School, a Master of Public Health degree from the University of Texas Health Center at Houston, and a Bachelor of Science degree in psychology from Texas Christian University, I perceive a unity in my readings in Eastern religions and in Biblical studies. As a result, I believe the original message of Jesus Christ was and is a call to Self-Realization, which may also be called following The Way (a term used in the book of Acts by very early "Christians," although they did not call themselves "Christians;" they called themselves Followers of the Way. The Way, or the Tao consists of the practice of peace and love in every moment, honoring the Divine Presence within ourselves as well as within others. The Way of early Christianity was a spiritual practice which similarly focused not on the material world, but on the practice of Divine Presence within the earthly realm. When we practice The Way, or The Tao, we become one with Divine Peace, Love, and even bliss. When we attain this, we experience the "Kingdom of God" or Reign of God, within ourselves, Nirvana or possibly Samadhi. Achieving this Way within each of ourselves is the only way we will be able to usher in the Reign of Divine presence among us all here on earth. The ultimate goal of The Way, and of Self-Realization, is the attainment of unity with the Divine Consciousness, or Buddha-Consciousness or Christ-Consciousness, within, and beyond our normal mortal mind. This Unity-Consciousness is eternal, but begins in the here and now. May it be so.
