It’s probably safe to say that as a medium and reincarnation researcher, I look at politics quite differently than most folks. I know, it’s a zoo out there.
While many folks – on both sides – harp on the negative aspects of the other, I view both candidates as a representation of what Carl Jung called “the collective consciousness.” In other words, they represent something in all of us Americans. You might say, “Well, that’s scary.” Or you might say, “Not ME!” But consider this: both candidates reflect something back to you and me, some things we like and some things we don’t.
So, here’s a technique I use when I am confronted by someone who I don’t like. It’s a very simple technique that I learned in a meditation class, using your imagination. I know, for some using much less trusting your imagination is like asking you to climb Mt. Everest; however, if you can put your analytical mind on the back burner for just a few moments, you might be surprised. The exercise goes like this:
Take a deep breath in and out. Now, think of a person, in this case, let’s look at Hilary Clinton and imagine her as an animal. Just bring your awareness to the image of the animal, observing without judging what the animal is doing, if it is by itself or with others. Now, freeze frame that image for a moment.
Next, do the same thing with Donald Trump. Again, bring your awareness to the image of the animal, observing without judging what this animal is doing, if it is by itself or with others. Freeze frame that image and don’t forget to breathe deeply in and out.
Okay, that’s is. It sounds too simple, right? But you’d be surprised what this exercise can reveal.
I’d love to hear what image you perceived before I go further with the exercise. Oh, BTW, there’s more, which I will reveal in the next post. I know, it’s a bit of a tease, but hey, I’m feeling a need to “lighten up” in this election process, and I promise that the next post will be soon. Until then, you could watch the movie, “Zootopia.” It’s not just a kids movie!
