Don’t Normalize Trump by Saying He’s the Shadow Side of All of Us.
I am dismayed when someone, like Deepak Chopra, who is highly regarded for his Spiritual knowledge says that Donald Trump is an extension or expression of our ‘shadow side.’ Please know that he is speaking about one aspect of our reality. He is speaking about the reality that lives in the old paradigm; a dusty, patriarchal realm that is ruled by an out-of-balance masculine energy. And yes, within this reality the collective is still battling the duality of their nature, the good and bad, the light and the dark, what is on the surface and what is underneath.
But what he is not seeing or is not recognizing, possibly because he too continues to live in that old paradigm, is that there is another collective which lives in the light, which lives in the power of the Feminine energy principles. Principles that include love, compassion, balance, healing, wisdom, and unity.
For me, the statement that Donald Trump is an extension or expression of our ‘shadow side’ is just another form or normalizing the old paradigm. It is a way of saying, ‘yes, so many of you do not want this, but it is here because of YOU.’ It is not here because of me, or the many people that I know who live in light and hold space for those in the old paradigm to shift. We continue to share thoughts and insight and provide examples for what is possible. He, this, is not here because of us.
I understand that many people need to heal and grow and I also understand that at this point in our collective evolution, the only way that is going to happen is by a major Cosmic Correction.
I speak often about Macro/Micro experiences. What happens within us also happens on a larger scale, and vice versa. When we personally do not hear the calls of our own Spirit to shift the only way we hear is by something so large happening that we must change. Or if we cannot change, if we are so deeply rooted or wounded that change is too much to contend with, we then choose to leave this lifetime to reset and try again. In the same vein, the old paradigm will continue to be hit with larger and larger messages that this way of life cannot continue.
This may not be the final wake-up call and Cosmic Correction for humanity, but we are poised for a large one. The Feminine dynamic is here and it will not be re-buried. We cannot deny it any longer, but the path to all of humanity shifting is not going to be pretty, nor is it going to be easy. It hasn’t been so far.
So what can we do? We can continue to live as we believe. We can continue to live in the light, to stay connected to our Spirit, to create the lives that we choose.
This is good lesson in, ‘we cannot make someone see or live differently.’ All we can do is live in our own Truth.
We can continue to share our thoughts and insights, our words, our healing gifts. We can continue to lead people, one-by-one, across the bridge from the old way to the new.
We can continue to recognize that two realities exist and that we always have a choice. We are not stuck or lost or beholden to the old way.
On a physical world, practical level we need to get involved, be involved and show up in all our light, in whatever way that makes sense to you.
But whatever it is, whatever you choose, don’t ever believe that ‘this’ is because of YOUR shadow side.
