February 6, 2017 With loving greetings from all souls at this station, this is Matthew. Contentiousness regarding the United States President’s policies shows a sharply divided nation and a wary world, and just as world peace starts with one person having peace of mind and heart, then another and another, so it is with unity of spirit in a global society. Never does this mean agreeing with ideologies or condoning actions that violate your principles and values! On the contrary, introspection illuminates aspects of self that need to be strengthened for conscious and spiritual growth, and this includes embracing similarities that unite instead of differences that divide. Emails sent to my mother since the election reflect various concerns of many people in the US and of citizens elsewhere as to how the new administration’s agenda will affect their countries. While we knew that the extraordinary “standoff” of the high and low vibrations in this situation could not long continue, there was no clarity in the energy field of potential as to how it would unfold to serve the highest good of all. Then, lo and behold, it was as if the two vibratory camps said, “Shall we dance?” The day after the inauguration ceremony, Earth was ablaze with light. Known as the Women’s March, men, young adults and children joined women in hundreds of cities throughout the US and some in several other countries. It was not only the many areas or the millions of marchers who represented the spectrum of societal diversity that so remarkably lit up the planet, it also was their unified purpose. The media publicized the events as “anti-Trump protests,” but we don’t see it that way. The harmonious marchers weren’t protesting what they don’t want, they were giving their power to what they DO want: peace; equality, respect, healthcare and legal rights for everyone in your world; clean energy to preserve the planet. A few days later an executive order that imposed a 90-day specific travel ban evoked quite different reactions around the world—anger, fear and confusion. The low-level vibrations emitted by those strong emotions are offset by the light in the protestors’ compassion for all who are personally affected, and a higher purpose is being served as well. The ban acted like a strobe light to bring to the world’s attention the wrongs in its discrimination, and this is a firm stride toward transmuting the energy of divisiveness into the energy of unity. All of you are inextricably connected at soul level, thus what harms one, harms all; what benefits one, benefits all. So, not always are things as they seem. You have a saying, “Every cloud has a silver lining,” which suggests that something positive can exist even in a situation that appears to be entirely the opposite. Indeed!
