Wednesday Wisdom Seeds: Love trumps Trump

This week I wanted to talk about the rise of Donald Trump in the US Presidential Election.

I’m not an American but our country as with so many other countries around the world, is influenced so heavily by the US, and by the leadership of the US. And so while an American might say it’s none of my business to comment on American politics, the fact is that American politics shapes our politics. The decisions of the US President, influence our government, which in turn affects our people, our environment, and our country.

And ultimately we live in one world. We all affect the world around us, and so when any one of us affects hundreds of millions of people, there is a ripple effect outward, and so in that case especially, a leader has a responsibility to be conscious of the kind of ripple effect he or she is sending out.

A lot of us are really saddened, sickened and shocked by the platform that Donald Trump seems to be riding on which is racism, sexism, inciting hatred, violence and fear. Even more bewildering is the amount of people following him, and the intensity of the energy they are responding with and expressing outward. It is really important to acknowledge that Trump could not be riding on a wave this big, without the huge number of people being that wave, carrying him forward.

This is not one lone, crazy man shouting at an empty forest.

This is an energy that is attracting millions of supporters. It is an energy, that has found a man to represent it. And so we have to ask ourselves: what is this all about?

What is this energy, and what meaning does energy like this have in a world that is supposedly meant to be evolving?

What has this energy done so far? It has ignited passion like nothing before it. Any division in the country in the Bush years feels like a schoolyard fight compared to this which has the potential to explode no matter the outcome. On the one hand, Trump stands for everything we are evolving upward from, representing a very old, dense energy fighting to maintain control. This energy loves to feed on fear. This energy loves to dominate and have power over others.

Trumps rise has less to do with the man himself, and everything to do with the energy he is allowing to use him as a representative. This energy is responding to what it sees as threatening to its existence and that is the rise of consciousness, the rise of awake, aware humans, the rise of people doing good in the world who have had enough of the corruption and injustice running the world so far.

The energy of consciousness has done a lot to awaken people over the last few years, but isn’t it interesting how nothing awakens you faster than feeling like you are about to lose something. I can ask our 4 year old son repeatedly to please take some toys back to his room. On occasion, he might choose to ignore me, or say no, or say yes but not do it. If I say, ok, I’m going to give these toys away tomorrow, woah, watch him swing into action! The loungeroom is tidy in seconds! What a miracle!

And likewise, as destructive as the Trump movement appears to be, there is this other side to his ripple affect which is millions of people who are otherwise not particularly politically motivated standing up to say no way is this going to happen! And whether this means they are voting for the first time, or sending out love, or getting stronger and clearer than ever before within themselves about the kind of country and world they want to live in, and hand down to their children, it has certainly lit a fire underneath a lot of butts!

I think a lot of people are realising that our entire political system is corrupt and no longer working for us. This is true of nearly all the old world systems and structures. New ones are being thought of, worked on, created and implemented right now, and it is my heartfelt belief that we will end up living in a new world if only because the old one is no longer sustainable. We can’t keep blowing each other up and destroying the place and expect to have a surviving humanity and thriving planet.

So as you witness this crazy show, in your moments of thinking "oh my god this world is going to turn into a nightmare", remember this: the talk we are seeing, the hatred, the calls for violence, have been simmering away for a long time.

These times were always going to be about revelations: lifting up the carpets and seeing the truth as it is. That includes the truths inside us, the truths in others, the truths in the systems running our planet, the greater truths of who we really are and where we really came from, and why we are here. The lifting up of carpets was always going to be a dusty, messy, ugly process, as well as being one teaching us about our own vulnerabilities, confronting us with choices, calling us to take a stand and choose the path that is aligned with our heart and soul. Not our ego.

We hear a lot that our evolution is about moving into a time of oneness and unity, but the stage before that is an intensification of our duality because in that place of oneness we can’t house the concept of ‘the other’. There is no ‘the other’. We recognise we are all of the same one energy. We can’t house lower dense energy because the very nature of lower dense energy - resentment, hatred, denial for example - can’t exist in a vibration based on unity and love. And so these things within us have to be highlighted in order to either be transformed or released. We have experienced this personally in our own lives, and we are seeing it now play out on the world stage.

Trump’s energy may be louder, but the numbers of those who are awake, aware and guided by love are stronger. Our strength lies in continuing to grow our light from within by all we think, say and do. Turning consciousness into a tangible, living, expression of itself, rather than being an ethereal concept. Our weakness lies in the fact that the more aggressive energy on this planet has always tended to win, to rule, to dominate. And when our innate energy is not aggressive we may have experienced ‘our light’ as taking a passive, ineffective, powerless role. But who says light has to be passive, ineffective or powerless?

You can express and embody that light in any way you choose. You can ask within that you be helped and guided to shine it in the most powerful, effective and positively passionate way possible.

Ultimately, this is not a gigantic tug of war between ‘us’ and ‘them’. It is a vivid display of the extremes of our lowest natures, fighting against our emerging higher natures. We all have some of both, to smaller and larger degrees. If nothing else, whenever you feel agitated by the state of affairs, say to yourself:

I choose love, I choose love, I choose love.

This will get you back into your clear centre, from where you can be who you are in the most effective, powerful way possible.

"That, of course, is the great secret of the successful fool – that he is no fool at all."

- Isaac Asimov, Guide to Shakespeare.

“All the world’s a stage, /
And all the men and women merely players. /
They have their exits and their entrances, /
And one man in his time plays many parts.”

“When we are born, we cry that we are come / To this great stage of fools.”

All is a play in divine order. It ain't over yet. We give thanks, and yes agree with you, that we remain in love, above the unfolding drama.

Dear Dana Most Precious,

Gratitude for ALL that YOU do and ALL that YOU are!

I agree as well, the only way to engage shadow is with LOVE, to integrate, not separate from,
any lesser means utilized will only feed such.

I AM feeling that Divine Intelligence is preparing to reveal something SO BIG, that even those engaged
in shadow battles, will take pause and unite, as they will see themselves, FINALLY,
as part of a bigger picture! (Which is LOVE only LOVE!)

The pendulum can only swing so far one way, before it is pulled back,

(and who says Divine doesn't have a sense of humor? :) )

There is a drama going on?!?!
Oh, I am aware of it . Yet not especially triggered by it . Not a part of it.
It is age old separation , of an old paradigm being moved, shifted.
Bless the situation and all involved. Invoke the energy and state of grace on the situation and all involved.
Those being extremely triggered have something in their consciousness that is coming up to be healed.
Some are not able to hold consciousness alone, when it is not in the collective.
Thanks for the comments Zorro and Gretchen.

antoinette atanasoff 16th March 2016 3:52 pm

Dana, This is the best I have read about Donald Trump and of course absolutely true. I do not believe Trump will be President but his words and actions do have a ripple effect. His ego is so afraid to lose at anything to not play god - the tactics he uses are from his own fear and the herd mentality which unfortunately appeals to so many. Yes, the carpet is lifted, the dirt is being swept out...and as we get past the dust and fumes we will see a "little man" crying for help. So yes dear Dana, we are love, we extend love and there is no greater power. Thank you.

Dear Dana & other fellow Heart Warriors,

Here in the States the media fixation with Donald Trump has been going on for so long that it feels like going to a bad movie & not being able to find the exit.
However, this has allowed me to see that my perception shapes my reality. So, I now choose to send Light & Love to the Higher Aspects of "the Donald" and
his followers. In so doing I feel connected with my Divine Heart and engaged as a co-creator of the New Earth reality I choose to participate in. The sense of frustration & annoyance is melting away.
ALSO, there is someone else in this Presidential race who embodies the New Earth principles of Fairness, Equality, Justice & Responsibility and he is shaking
things up in a really good way. Bernie Sanders is a fearless advocate for the working class (bypassing the country-club class) who continues to stay in the race
long after "they" said he'd be gone, and that's because the everyday people are hearing someone actually say what we've wished someone would say for a long time. Please send Light & Love to support his Higher Aspects also.

zorro 16th March 2016 7:30 pm

Dana, Cyndy, Gretchen, Antoinette, peacekatwombyn:

I'd pass the peace pipe and say a prayer with you all at this moment, I would... I will.
Bless you! Keep it coming and never doubt your inner knowing. And there are many more of us who sense these signs of the times!

Soooo, The Lying, Deceitful, Socialist, Hillary is a "higher vibration" candidate? You had better "go within" some more ! I myself think that Ted Cruz has the largest amount of "Light", within him for our time, but he has a GREAT uphill trek to go. Most voters, really are not at the "vibration level" YET to see through the deceit and lies of our corrupt system and individuals in it. Like a number of "channeled entities" are saying, " It most likely will take a couple generations, or more for enough to be enlightened and the "old energy systems" to be transmuted ". I currently really don't trust Trump at this point BUT IF he is the Nominee, I and many other CONSERVATIVES (oh oh- a "bad" word to all you LIBERALS) will vote for him just to SAVE US FROM HILLARY and the "low vibrating " DemocRATS !

Excellent article Dana, I shall share it. I do find this whole circus fascinating and, as you said, it is the "enlightening" or exposure of what was simmering underneath all along. I don't even know if he fears these things himself or if he just plays on them because they are effective.

Peaking my interest in how candidates are found in the first place has amazed me that anyone with the money can put themselves forward even for a party who doesn't approve of what the candidate representing. You may find this enlightenment brings about much needed changes in the system and a future where of those other than the elite can apply to be a leader.

I'm with Gretchen. The effect of the current spike in temperatures in the northern hemisphere might upstage the whole election process anyway.

Energy flows where attention goes.

Why give your energy to such?

jenjaros 17th March 2016 9:36 am

Dana, YOU ABSOLUTELY HIT IT ON THE NAIL.! This is nothing like the Bush years.. I am so amazed at the amount of people supporting Trump ? As a lightworker it has become very difficult for me to see the higher outcome with this.. It is really scary.Trump is a master at getting people to believe his lies.. It's called gaslighting. It like when someone abuses someone and the showers them with love. Our political system is broken. It creates division. This is by far the worst I have ever seen it. Trump is a racist. And it is fueling so much hatred from people who have been fuming for 8 years over having the first black president ( which I am extremely proud of ). There is a segment of the population that refuses to see TRUTH. You can show them the proof and they will deny it ? Science is a myth to them. The media creates half truths and people just follow. I have disagreed with you in the past with getting political with the United states. But I see now (I have evolved some :)that we are one..we are all citizens of the Universe. You have every right to speak about are politics.

jenjaros 17th March 2016 9:50 am

I cannot believe that someone with so much division is on this site ? May the light reach you. We are all human and there is no reason to be so nasty. And Ted cruz's wife has implied that Ted Cruz is the second coming of Christ ? You do not have to put others down for not holding your view. It is difficult right now. but if you are searching try to hold the light for all humans. I know this post will piss you off... just know I am sending you light. And apparently democrats is a evil word to all you conservatives.

gretchendreisbach 17th March 2016 10:39 am

Trump is GOD being Trump.

Hilary is GOD being Hilary.

I AM GOD being ME.

YOU are GOD being YOU.

WE are ALL aspects of the ONE.
(I Believe)

Separation is an illusion.

Here on Earth Planet it is all about how many times One has spun around the cotton candy machine of illusions.
(which can be very sticky) indeed.

Yet, at EACH of Our Cores, remains OUR TRUE DIVINE ESSENCE.

LOVE TO US ALL on Our Journeys into Wholeness!

(and I take a big inhale on Zorro Most Precious' Peace Pipe and pass it on!)

Beautiful comment Gretchen.
We are all equal at the soul level .
Peace piped and Piped peace.

I am very surprised at one person's response to this great article. I felt such anger and fear from her post; we are not democrats or conservatives on this site, we are all spiritual beings having a human experience. Love is the answer, not more division. It is hard work, but oh-so worth it!

Love, peace and blessings to EVERYONE! Even Donald Trump! :)

cece 18th March 2016 1:18 pm

So. here is a thought .the term 'lightworker' to me has become so over used. I feel that its this catch all 'kumbayah" moment for some who think they are doing something to make it all 'better' or 'higher' or healed..or whatever the intentions are. If you realize what 'sending light to the situation' that you JUDGE needs to have your 'light' put in the situation to correct your perceived 'wrongs' into 'right'..well, you might want to consider you are actually part of the problem.
What happens when you go into a dark room , or cave , or forest or whatever..and you TURN ON A LIGHT AND SEND LIGHT TO THE see everything!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! you see dirt, roaches, spiders , snakes, mold , mildew a , dirty dishes and laundry , full litter boxes and dirty diapers and maybe a mean person or a mad person or a crazy person waiting for YOU and your that they/it/he/she CAN BE SEEN.
I think we just all need to simmmmmer down..GET YOUR OWN BUSINESS DONE.. all those
things that thought they were hiding are now being seen and cannot hide anymore because you sent light.

zorro 19th March 2016 7:02 am

Lightworker overused? Perhaps so. How about we just go right to Lovebeing? Being of Love?

All that is needed is to open our own hearts and allow our own love.

We then don't have to concern ourselves with "shining" the light. The light/love radiates automatically, no concern for targeting. Then we aren't "projecting light". We are "allowing love".

Oh, yea... because we are not "projecting light" with this, I guess we would also not be "projecting shadows" anymore!

cece 19th March 2016 9:02 am

yes,Zorro! you are understanding my thoughts on this.When I referred to 'getting your own business done" I was thinking of the Ghandi concept of 'being the change you wish to see' be love, you be 'healed' , you do no harm and on and on, as anything trying to 'change' a situation or person without being asked or without their permission you are overstepping on someone else's 'free will' and whatever their soul choices are. Things play out in the karmic world it seems as a 'cause and effect' seem to 'work out' on their own for their own purpose.I can only send 'energy of focus to what I want to experience in my life. I really have no idea what someone else may want for their life.I do know I am deeply and pleasantly affected by someone in my presence who radiates love and kindness and compassion. I feel it without talking about it and it is a comfort. To know I can do that as well is also a comfort and the best of being human, :smitten:

cyndy 19th March 2016 1:46 pm

We still are using linear words. I mostly just have to feel the energy of what is being said. And yet I am reading fewer words?!?!
The lightworker word never did resonate with me. I just always floated over that word, to the energy of the message. Perhaps lightbeing suits me better. Being of Light.
Somehow lovebeing does not fit light worker . Although, light incorporates love.
Another word that did not resonate with me was manifest. I then stumbled upon materializing light. That resonates more with me and put manifest into a different category of 3d and how we used intent, intentions, vision boards to manifest in a old operating system.
Materializing light seems to propel a newer operating system, to use our light, to bring things, experiences, into materialized form.
That resonates strongly with me.
Each of course is doing their own path, their own way, their own journey., having their own experience and have their own definitions of words.
Just sharing my 2 cents (sense) today.

Joanne Schmidt 19th March 2016 2:28 pm

You are right you are not an American or you would love Trump. It is time for our country to come awake and know of all off the corruption of the past Bush, Clinton and Obama reigns. It is time to take down the evil system.

LindaD 20th March 2016 10:04 am

Thank you for that Dana. I live in Canada and like you feel we are all affected by other country's leaders.
Blessings and Love and Light
