I believe in Divine Purpose. This belief has pulled me through the death of my father as a young girl, the loss of my sweet precious MeMa, soul-crushing depression, divorce, getting laid off from my super profitable corporate job, and the molestation of my baby boy. And this belief is pulling me through this time in our country in which the popular vote elected our first woman president and the antiquated electoral college elected a man who is on record admitting that he sexually assaults women because you can do that if you’re rich and famous.
I’m listening to a story on the radio this morning where a female reporter is in Kandahar, Afghanistan, stronghold of the Taliban, speaking to young girls. Young girls determined to obtain their education. Young girls unafraid of acid being thrown on their faces for going to school. Young girls stating that the oppressive power cannot eradicate their inner light. This is what we are called to do and to be. I bring light here…light unencumbered by my fear…light that will never waver, never falter, never stop shining. We can all make the decision NOW to connect with the Light of the Divine Source in our hearts and radiate it into the hearts of humanity, send it into the hearts of all leaders, send it into all structures, all systems, all governments. If you are wondering what to do now that Trump is the president-elect, it is this: SHINE YOUR LIGHT. Shine your light in the way that you are called to shine it. It could be through individual conversations with other mothers, with your children, your lover, your friends. It could be marching in protest. It could be running for office yourself. It could be prayer and meditation. However you are called to show up, show up in all your glory!
There is purpose in this. This election is lighting the inner fire in the hearts of women and their supporters across the nation and the world. We can make Divine Purpose out of this by consciously choosing to create the world we envision. Now is not the time to lose hope. Now is the time to see solutions, to engage in our democracy, to make our voices heard however uncomfortable that might be. This is not about hatred-nothing good can come from hate. But just as a mother guides her children with fierce love and strong boundaries, so must we guide our local, regional and national governments with that same determination. We choose to come together now, no longer isolated in our own thoughts and belief systems. We come together as Women of Earth and we claim our Divine Feminine Power as Change Agents all across the planet. “If you strike me down, I shall become more powerful than you can possibly imagine.” AND SO IT IS!
