The Rat Cage

donald-trump-2005343_640.pngIn all of the workshops I have held here in Europe after the USA election of Trump, people have been voicing how terrified and powerless they feel.  This November, we, as Americans had to choose between 1. More of the same that we hate but that is uncomfortably familiar and 2. Radical change in favor of the new no matter the cost. 

As many people will attest to, I never agreed with my spiritual colleagues who thought that Hillary would win the election because of the inevitability of the rising of the divine feminine. Unfortunately, because of my familiarity with the human shadow, I predicted Trump would win from the start.  I predicted it because since the moment he decided to run, the world has literally been blanketed in the vibration of Trump and all of the spirit guides and angels were in fact in favor of Trump.  For him not to win would have meant that our universe no longer operated according to the law of mirroring.  At first, I was dumbfounded.  In general, non-physical beings are beyond 'liberal' in their perspectives.  But all of these beings were in favor “wiping the slate clean”.  All of these beings were in favor of the “mass awakening”.  Those of us who understand awakening know just what that entails.  Like nearly every person on earth, they too were in favor government upheval.  They too were in favor of authenticity, no matter how ugly that authenticity is.   

free.jpgWhether a person physically wrote Trump down on that slip of voting paper or not, they voted for him subconsciously through their desire for the current corrupt system to end. Think about it this way, every time you had to pay taxes, every time you had to go to work when you didn’t want to, every time you watched the corruption in the world, every time authority made you feel like breaking free, every time you wanted to be authentic but couldn’t for fear of consequences, you desired to be free from the system.  Every time you felt like your life was a rat cage, you wanted out of the rat cage.  But because of the strength of the rat cage, the bills to pay, mouths to feed, reputation to uphold, people to not let down, you stayed stuck while desiring freedom.  And so the universe heard the call to be set free. 

forest-fire-432870_640.jpgWhen a person really desires a radical restructuring, they want a fresh new start.  Not an alteration of what currently exists.  So, you can consider what is coming to be like a forest fire that cleans the earth so something radically new will take its place.  It does no good to send you into denial by promising you only good things.  It also does no good to tell you that sitting down and sending love will alter the course of history.  There is a point where positive focus is a wonderful tool for creation and there is a point where it is nothing more than a mechanism of denial.  The momentum of manifestation going into this one has made it absolutely unavoidable.  If you are really honest with yourself, you know in your heart where this is heading already.  You don’t need me to come right out and say it.  But what you do need to know is that any part of you that is attached to the current system in place will be in pain when the current system collapses.    

rat-4075128_640.jpgI am going to tell you that the very best thing you can do right now is to think about what you have been desiring that is “outside your own personal rat cage.” And do not put it off for one more second. Do it before the rat cage collapses around you.  Do not let the universe have an excuse to crash it for you.  Think of it this way, if there is no rat cage in your life, there will be nothing for the universe to crash and nothing for it to burn down. I have been saying it for a while now.  Awakening is no longer a luxury for us on planet Earth. It is a necessity. And we are headed for a cleansing of the collective human shadow. We will all be made aware of it so we will have to face it head on.  This is already starting to happen with the racial attacks taking place around the country.  It’s not that this stuff is new.  Any person who isn’t white will tell you that.  It’s been going on in a hidden way forever.  But now it has been given permission to come to the surface and into plain view. 

architecture-3173357_640.jpgMost people find awakening through suffering.  Look at your own life.   You know this is true for you. Most people have to be abused or lose someone they love, or get cancer, or whack a tree at 70 miles an hour to “awaken”.  This is true for the collective consciousness as well. Donald Trump is not the problem.  He is (and will continue to be) merely the reflection of human shadow. The true shadow, the true problem, is the conditions that put people in a such a state that they would feel so powerless and desperate in their rat cage that they would vote for him in the 1st place.

What is coming in the short term will be the opposite of the loving, 5-D Utopia that most conscious people have in mind for this earth. But what is coming will be the thing that awakens ‘the majority’.  So that in the long term that loving united, conscious new earth can be built from the fertile soil that eventually exists as a result of the forest fire. If you are already conscious, let the rat cage be smashed and do not cling to it.  Do not try to preserve it.  Do not put your energy into fighting against what has happened either.  You will be going up against the universe at large by doing so.  Instead, throw all of your energy into creating what you wish to replace the old system with.  Put all of your energy into what makes your heart sing and to the places that call to you.  Take responsibility for your on life by paying very close attention to the guidance you receive directly from your own intuition.  Follow it whenever it tells you to do something different or to go somewhere different.

slave.jpgDon’t do this for the sake of safety alone.  Don’t do it because of what pain you wish to avoid.  Do this for the sake of a fully lived life that is free.  This is after all what you’ve always wanted instead. If you let your heart lead you and let your mind serve your hearts direction, it will matter less to you to fight against the flames. 

If you want to help other people lovingly (not desperately), help them recognize their own personal rat cage and how to dis-identify with it.  Ultimately you will not be able to make them awaken or make them leave the rat cage. Perhaps you may find that certain people in your life are the bars of your own rat cage. Set yourself free so that the universe at large has nothing left to set you free from. For this reason, I invite you to ask, What do you want the very most and what is preventing you from that? That, which prevents you from anything you want, is the rat cage of your life.  So, what is your own personal rat cage?

And to all the people who "thumbed me down" when I wrote in another comment that Hillary is not the chosen one because she represents the old, there you have it....!  Beginning of the end of the establishment.

I welcome change. I am not afraid. I will work on focusing on what I want and how to be free from the rat cage.

Thank you for being open about this Teal. I too have felt and said that Trump would win since Spring. The initial feeling was exactly like the time has come as you describe. Based on that feeling that Trump will win I developed the feeling that he "should" win. I saw him as moved by life and by love for his country while Hillary I saw as moved by ideas. Hillary's mind seemed trapped while Trump seemed not locked in concepts. On the morning of Nov 8 I looked Hillary in the eyes in her face-to-face final video, saw how uncomfortable she was and thought she can't possibly win. I also thought it was no coincidence that exactly those two people were running for President, it was a cosmic play that had to take place and end in the way it did. When I watched your video about the future I thought that the feeling he would win was probably true since mass consciousness doesn't change easily as you said.  While they were both flawed as candidates, I saw Hillary as too afraid of death and Trump too attached to life. Neither is trustable but I preferred the later.

Don't know what I'm trying to say  other than I'm not afraid, and I had felt a cold dread thinking that Hillary might win even if I didn't believe so, that it would have been very wrong for reasons I didn't understand. So I guess what I want to say is thank you.

I've actually been feeling my rat cage very strongly the past few days, and after knowing that it also prevents me from doing what I want to do, I'm very sure that my rat cage is school.

But how would I get away from it? I still have to be there for two more years and it's neither fun, nor actually teaching me something.
