“Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing there is a field.
I’ll meet you there.”
There is no doubt that I wanted Hillary Clinton to win in this election, it was all over every aspect of my life. When I read this quote and then looked over the last week and started listening to people who have been living in this world longer than I, I quickly leaned into the very painful belief that Donald Trump maybe the very best thing to happen to our country. He is our collective shadows, our toxic patriarchy that is killing us and our planet. The parts of us that are just too ugly and too scary to look at. In all the wisdom and love that is out there, we are now forced to look at it, we can no longer look away. Hillary could never expose it the way that Donald can, she would have had to work within the confines of it. Yes, this is gonna hurt, we are gonna have to dig deep and look into our lives but better to remove the cancer now then to let it continue to grow for the next 240 years. Our collective Divine Feminine that lives in each of us, male and female, is called to do sacred work in order to birth what our nation truly needs, to truly reach the greatness we are capable of.
“We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking
we used when we created them.”
We need to acknowledge that for each of us this will look different. There will be different healers bringing their own kind of healing to our county. Our first instinct is always to judge someone for doing it differently than us. Remember this is the old way, look to the new way. The new way knows that each person will bring their gifts. in their time, and that will be the perfect time.
“Everyone has been made for some particular work,
and the desire for that work has been put in every heart.”

I have spent the last year in debilitating pain. I have been learning how to transcend a pain that doctors have labeled the suicide disease, because it can be so terrifyingly painful, people want to kill themselves. I am not joking when I say this is an apt description of the pain I have felt. I am still working through new treatments but there is hope and where there is hope, there is work to be done. On good days, I will demand my body do the max it can do. For everyday of work I may need three days of rest, if this is the price of what I feel my soul is called to do, I will gladly pay it. It is a privilege.
I have recently watched a video of a caterpillar’s metamorphosis from a cute little bug, into the glorious beautiful butterfly. It is one of the most used metaphors to describe a life change but in reality it is truly a horrifying experience. Yet, at the same time it is truly mythical in its mechanism. Mother Nature made this beautiful cocoon on the outside for us to look at, yet on the inside something truly horrifying for the caterpillar is happening. In my really limited knowledge in order for the caterpillar to become the beautiful flying butterfly, it must first consume and digest itself; then regrow itself. When I watched these videos and listened to these explanations, the spiritual lessons were not lost on me. I have been eating myself for the last year. I have been tearing down everything that wasn’t true in my life. I have sifted out every last piece of my life till the only thing left in it was, gold. I didn’t realize that until this week but this is the WHY of the last year.
” a major change in the appearance or character of someone or something”
Bet you were expecting a butterfly. Me too, we both were wrong,
I became a lioness.
I believe we are currently watching ourselves enter that place of fear the caterpillar feels right before forming the chrysalis. All of our collective old parts are going to go through some amazing transformations; it isn’t always pretty inside of that chrysalis. That is why we need everyone, to bring their own kind of healing to the nation at this time. The one thing that has not changed is that I believe with everything in me that if we all meet together in the meadow, after all the tears, tearing down, rebuilding, something beautiful can emerge.
Just like the caterpillar was always the butterfly; I am me, only changed. To some of you who have known me before this may be a little shocking, to those who have KNOWN me this whole time you knew this as me. My core values are still the same I am just more active and vocal about what I believe. Several years ago I had the opportunity to go and listen to this amazing man speak and going forward this will be one of my guiding principles. It will direct every decision I make.
