Deeply Awake – “Afterthoughts On Election Day” By Kathy Vik 11-10-17
I need to weigh in, and as I’m readying at the sink, I realize, even though I am off writing after a failed attempt, “Holy moly, it’s not the camera I need today, as Deeply Awake, I need my keyboard.” I felt confident, renewed, and ready. I reviewed what it was I’d wanted to get across on camera, and I smiled. Well, would you look at that. It’s coming back!
I wrote the first chapter of my new novel, and it sat with me a day, a night, and I knew it was off, it would never be included in the book. Amature, but funny. I wrote humor. Successfully. It’s been several days since this failed attempt, and I know now what comes of this, where I am to go with this story I have been given. I may not make the 50K words needed by November 30 to qualify as a Nanowrimo novelist, (National Novel Writing Month, each November, rallies writers world-wide to craft a new novel in 30 day,s 50K words or more) but I am on my way, with an idea I can live with, a story I would actually hang with. Of course it will be a comedy. Nothing else matters in this world as much as a good belly laugh, I have come to find.
All of that biographical stuff aside, I have been moved, urged, to come to the screen for a few days. Something has shifted for us, as a humanity. Can you feel it? Have you gotten your memo yet?
The evening after the election, I heard Lawrence O’Donnell say again and again, the word “wave.” His panelists echoed this word. The off-year elections in America could not have been more clear. The Dalai Lama’s prophetic words are coming to pass: “The world will be saved by the Western Woman.”
Clearly, at this point, we are the only ones who can. And it is just the beginning, the very first wave on a beach untouched. We and our male allies, of course.
The current legislative course is to further impoverish the citizenry, with the added egregious insult of taking away health care from children, the poor, the elderly, and the disabled. That is who is in charge.
I am seeing things much differently than before, emotionally neutral, but clearly. Tell me who benefits with these schemes? Strip away the emotions, peel from the lie all the truths, and what sits at the heart of this agenda is contempt and greed.
Malevolent people with intentions of harm are in positions of authority at the moment, but they no longer have the power they once did. Once the sheen dulls, once the paint dries, once some tricks are played, once the ground settles, it’s funny how simple things become, for many of us.
The Americans voted into congressional, council and other seats of governmental power are, as a group, diverse, predominantly female, and, I’m partial to one commentator’s assessment on the morning after the election: what we witnessed was a coalition of the decent.
No truer words.
The next day, yesterday, an article was published recounting several illegal and harmful sexual acts of predation by Senator-Elect Moore from Alabama. Do you know what is said about elections in Alabama, of grotesque, entitled white men? “Nothing will stop you except a dead girl or an alive boy.”
I heard a pundit comment on this situation, and I want to pass on what was said. A thoughtful, sad and kind man weighed in on the Lawrence O’Donnell show and said (I’m paraphrasing), there are women and men all over the nation who will be watching what happens with this man. These allegations, and these brave women’s stories serve as reminders, or indeed as “triggers” for many women and men (#metoo movement)Their fellow Americans who then keenly watch the actions of their legislators. Politics is changing, because once again, just as in the late ’60’s and early ’70’s, politics is personal again. We’ll be watching what men on the Senate do. I feel strongly that if he is confirmed, given the climate in Washington, that if he were to be brought up by an Ethics Committee, he might get a pass.
It really bothers me, to hear powerful men say the words, “If it’s true,” about sexual assault reported by credible women. It is vile, and speaks of the silencing of sexual non-compliance, also know as sexual assault. This is the Rape Culture, on full display.
If I am making you squeamish, if you are wondering why I talk about this, as a soul person, it is this: The news of the last week makes it clear to me, as an ascensionist, one thing:
It is now happening.
A coalition of the compassionate, I think it should be called.
I see these political movements as social ones, grassroots ones, personal, yet effective ones, and they stand as proof to me that, even sooner than I expected, we are now at the start of the general population “waking up.” The first wave has hit a size, intensity, magnitude, to have changed things, the harmonics are different now. I think that means there is a new agreement field available, more expansive and less aggressive, available to all.
The infection, politically, is massive, and there is a fight ahead, but, what fun it was, to see “common” Americans elected to seats, whose stories and bravery are beyond uncommon, they’re the ones to consider superheroes. They broke a sound barrier. And this all plays in to the intel I get, the things I see. It’s been awhile and a lot has happened. And hence, a letter, just like before.
It was a breathtaking achievement, in my opinion, the brave ones against mean ones. They deomonstrated integrity, steadiness, incredible poise and grace under fire. They are our political emissaries, just was we have them in metaphysical shops, retail shops, and really, just think about it, we are in every level of society, around the world.
We are all here as specialists. There is a lot to accomplish, and so, how many of this now-politicians know about ascension mechanics? How many of them have visions and conjure things? It isn’t required, is my point. We each have our thing to do, the thing we are built to do. And watching the coverage, it felt so congruent, and filled me with hope, to hear the stories of the newly elected. People are being elected with the underlying theme of “Enough is enough.”
Their bravery will move us all away from this police state and toward peace itself, though they’ll need reinforcements, and rumor has it there will be a whole lot of upcoming vacancies.
I see it so clearly, this new first wave of compassion and integrity in the public sphere, on an off-year, and I know in my heart this is unstoppable. Unstoppable. Want to know why?
Getting in there and saying “No More,” with legislative authority, will bring the nation into the future, usher in new talent, challenge the oligarchy, all the things that were left undone in 1963, basically. Both Ike and JFK warned us. Wouldn’t it be cool, if it were cool, to run for something? As if it were part of discussions across dinner tables? The incorruptible have arrived.
It is a secret I learned long ago in this process, and it alone guides us home more than anything. Human beings respond biologically to high regard and kindness, respect and care. Human beings have a positive biological response to these basic modes of behavior. They feel it, and even if it means changing their ways, they will do so, to get more of this good stuff.
It is at the heart of falling and staying in love, for goodness sake.
It feels good to be liked. It feels shitty to be disliked,(especially by those who refuses to admit the hatred or fear they hold, but who act it out with aggression)
It is simple. And that is why I know this is unstoppable.
Is this new sociological change linked to ascension, to spirituality, to DNA activation?
Yes. A thousand times yes.
What I term ascension is the process I have gone through, and others have gone and are going through, now all of us going through something brand new, together. And I know that what we are doing energetically is, of course, assisting and ushering in the changes we see not only in America, but world wide.
So, to close, I will tell you of the last vision I had. It has helped me a lot. But first, I must tell you about the changes I see.
For me, the most gratifying by-product of these circumstantial and internal changes is that I hold very little fear. I said on video recently how relieved I was to have less anxiety, and how surprised I was now, in this state, to realize just how anxious I had been. But this peace, and some fun new things to play with, these have since amplified, and I am in a state of no fear now. Fear is a habit, like a thought virus, one I can go to and spend time in, but it emits a sound now, almost, like a squeaky wheel or a faint alarm. It is not congruent, and so, it is easily isolated, tended to and loved, reassured, and equilibrium is restored.
I had prayer, as a child. Only one, really. It remained one of two holy prayers I say for this lifetime. I pray for peace. I want peace. Since I was a girl, I wanted the peace which passes all understanding. I would glimpse it, in my bible, in a flower, in an exchange, in poetry and music and ceremony. in silence. I wanted that within me. Jesus had it, so I knew it was possible for me too, since he said that too.
And it is fulfilled. I know that peace. I can flip into now, into wheels within wheels, and song that defies its translation, while in a conversation, in conflict, in fear. It is there. Always. And it is sustained, now.
My dream came true.
I wanted you to know that. Yes, circumstances are sweeter, more tolerable. Yes, I have a physical issue that is serious, and is being attended to appropriately. Yes, I have deep relationships which are troubled, I know and love those who are troubled. That’s the gig. I’ll bet you do too. But even so, I know peace now. And relations are more peaceful now. Everything is. It’s quiet, finally, there is focus and clarity, in a new way, but still. There is peace now.
My vision came to me after I saw a “heads up, crew” post about a second burst of solar activity which was to last three days, and has just since passed. So, we had a 6 day run of intense solar activity, and during that time, I knew only one thing: Nothing was sticking. It was a corridor. It was a time to put one foot in front of the other and trust. Nothing was sticking. And then, we exited those days and I felt different. I had ease with things I had not been comfortable with, and I felt more confident and steady than every before. I guess you could say that my mind cleared.
The second burst happened soon after the first. I read an article by Sandra Walter discussing intense gates and grid work during these three days, and then when I saw the wave-forms of the activity on the usual graphs, the waves were bent in a way I had never seen. And that is when I got information.
I felt that old soul fatigue as I realized that each of these were activations of some kind. I sank into myself and traveled. This is what I found.
I realized, these waves of solar activity, days of it at a time, are going to continue. But, here’s the punchline: This is the gift we were promised.
I saw a beautiful golden light. Liquid golden love. I knew this to be what we are made of. I was given that vision Christmas Eve of 2012. We are made of and from this indescribable liquid golden love, benevolence. In the vision, this light was then covered by a clear crystalline geodesic dome. But the structure was organic, alive, dynamic. This was laid down during the first storm, I understood.
And then, I saw another geodesic dome, constructed like the first, but with different geometries. It hovered over the first, and there was such joy and homecoming.
The structures themselves sang, in celebration, in work, in joy. I saw this from above, and was stunned by the colors emitted from this structure. It was boggling to me, at that point, to imagine ten more. What beauty! What depth! What song! The music, the colors, the joy, the information, it was intense and beautiful beyond words.
The initial fatigue of, oh no, we’re gonna have to go through this again??&#!? Was replaced with steady certainty. This is what is at hand.
I understood that these waves, this beauty and structure and grand honor is what is contained in that ribbon of light we have heard Kryon and others talk about for so long. It’s what we have worked for, anticipated and readied for. This something that’s coming toward us, right on time, something brand new, an energy, an awakening.
One does not need to know ascension mechanics, or even what great thinkers said long ago. The truth of our nature is written into our DNA, and it is our DNA which is being awakening, quite literally.
As these waves hit, it will become harder and harder to remain unchanged, I’ve heard many say. I said it, either in channel or not, the ease with which one gets through this is proportional to their commitment to their birth, or old, personality structure, old explanations, old expectations. Those who are firmly committed to remaining unchanged will, I can see now, simply shield themselves, opting out for a time. The acting out, and the discomfort will, of course, intensify within some, and I think some of the terror things are just that. Spasms.
What I see instead, is that structures remain the same, just as in a sandstorm, but I can’t help but notice that the sandstorm is happening within the structure, not without. I see institutions, relationships, work situations, all these things, being changed, from the inside out. Two years from now, we may not be able to believe what we have done as a country. I see this infection as deep and completely incompatible with the new wave of public servants.
I’m with Frum. This next part won’t be easy. The Republicans know they cannot win in a fair fight, but they have no intention of losing. Winning and losing is a real big deal in those circles.
And it is not an easy flip, I can assure you. Those kinds of people like to go down fighting. But in the end, honesty, decency, mercy, social good, the arts, all these things are what younger ones want. The only way to win now, is with integrity, true to beliefs which radiate right thinking, compassion, and respect.
So, these DNA activations may translate into political change, relationship changes, work and living circumstances. This is a time, for some years to come, of migration, of listening and obeying that voice you know you must trust, which tells you to move right, when perhaps every one around you is screaming for you to go left. In these times, it is important to listen to your guidance.
That means, I am reminding myself, that I must trust my guidance, and drop any guilt, any shame, any fear. I can’t do that without being ok with what I’m doing and not doing, how I behave, what I’m spending time thinking on and creating, as well as reconciling the past, and the future, keeping instead, more aware of this moment, now. I jumped around a lot, and realize how far away I was, at times.
But through it all, trusting myself is how I honor myself. If it is incompatible with my peers, with my associates, with my intimates, well then, so be it. It wouldn’t be the first time.
These are those times. It is a dawning of a new age, led by those, in the political sphere who may not articulate great spiritual truths, but who behave in ways that one knows to be better. It is simply obvious. And funny, it is preferred.
When I woke up in 2012, I was saddened and surprised when I learned how suspicious and closed most people are to simple, innocent, pure love. Appreciation, that is a better word. I realized that all around me were starving, wilted plants, and many of them were sitting in puddles. I would water the wilted, I would smile, be friendly, be open, and I got the weirdest responses to this, though. Suspicion. Guardedness. And often times, rejection. So, expect some of that, is what I’m saying. It can get, or feel, aggressive. Persevere.
I didn’t understand.
And then, I went through that final phase, a cleansing that I still don’t understand, and through that, I do believe I cast away the last of what would make me wobble in this new energy. It is the end of categorizing people, and it is the end of fearing those who require to be in authority, as well as those who require an authority figure.
I think, in its essence, this is what is happening. The bringing in of authority, each of us. We needed to give ultimate, and at times, brutal authority to exterior forces, to understand our own power, our innate sovereignty.
Only the most trusted, skilled and divine creatures would be given free will. And with it, we chose to experiment with its abdication. That we are simply returning to ourselves that which we chose to give away, it really turns out to be a beautiful and empowering thing. As a species, as nations, as individuals, it’s true for all of us. You can put a crystal mandala around it, or translate it into foreign policy but there it is.
I am glad to have you today. I hear a new voice, and that really comes as no surprise. I’ll tell you a little nugget before I leave. My friend Melissa was talking to someone without a loud internal guidance system. She was asked what it was like. Melissa explained, “It’s like going on a road trip with a really a good friend. When they say something, you don’t wonder if you said it. You know they said it.”
Through this process, perhaps the last month or so, I feel like I have become the driver, the car and the passenger. We are just all here together, and depending on focus, I can go very far now. I attend to much, but it’s all very comfortable. I feel safe. Hopeful, despite all the misogyny and upcoming events, and I know that there is nothing stopping the light now. We have already won.
