This is not a political post. With election night, 11/11 and the passing of Leonard Cohen all occurring in the span of one week, I'm over here marveling at how perfectly and divinely orchestrated Life really is.
I want to personally thank Leonard Cohen's eternal soul for electing to opt out of this physical reality at such a critical time, as if he knew his music carries the healing frequencies that would remind us to find purpose in our pain. That he knew we'd all be playing his music en masse and his soul was carrying out one more contractual obligation to elevate human consciousness in a time of such uncertainty.
One of my favorite Cohen songs is "Anthem," with the lyrics, "Forget about your perfect offering. There is a crack in everything. That is how the light gets in."
I know we are eternal creatures and that none of the structures we have created in this reality are "true" in the spiritual sense, but it didn't stop the human me from wholeheartedly engaging in my physical world and supporting Hillary Clinton for President.
Having studied the trajectory of her life and career and seeing how she has paved the way for women everywhere to break through that glass ceiling...
Noticing how she worked so hard for causes she (and I) care about -- but how she received serious backlash for her audacity to be a strong woman...
Yes, the human me rallied hard for her.
And the human me felt her loss very deeply.
As a feminist, as a women's life coach, as a mother and grandmother, as a fiance, as a daughter, sister and friend, I would have loved nothing more than to see Hillary Clinton be elected as our first Madame President.
So taking some time to collect myself, I do what I always do when things seem uncertain, which is to find the purpose in the pain. It is obvious to me our nation is not ready for a woman President. Our mother wounds run deep. This election has woken me up to just how much healing we have yet to do.
And I can't help but to think this is the way of the Dark Goddess.
She brings us to surrender of ego in the most mysterious of ways. Things might look very dark. But in this darkness, its all just gestating.
How do we go forward from here? There is a lot to sort through, but in all sincerity, this experience of surrender has given me a renewed sense of direction in healing the Wild Feminine.
So I leave you with this quote I found on social media this weekend which gave me hope.
"The future is dark. What if this darkness is not darkness of the tomb, but darkness of the womb." ~Valerie Kaur
