So now the dust has almost settled, and people are (hopefully) coming to their senses that our President is not a) a Socialist with some bizarre hidden agenda to take away our guns or freedoms or b) a Kenyan Muslim with some bizarre hidden agenda to turn us all into God-less heathens… Hoping that’s the case anyway.
In the last election, my mom passed on some advice her very wise Unitarian pastor had mentioned one Sunday in church – that everyone bitching and moaning and freaking out over Sarah Palin was, in the Law of Attraction, only giving Palin MORE energy. Kind of the opposite of what that mostly liberal congregation was hoping for. It was good advice… I tried my best to heed it in this election, but the hideous lies and outright hatefulness of the GOP did pull me in and I posted a few too many articles and whatnot on Facebook. I did. It’s true. ::hangs head:: But I also tried to balance with good articles about President Obama, the good things he’s done so far, the important effect he’s had on our country and our culture.
But here’s the thing. The GOP and right-wing media, with all their hatred of the President, did pretty much exactly what my mom’s pastor warned against doing for Sarah Palin 4 years ago. They didn’t really like their own guy, so rather than touting his dubious qualifications for being President or his shaky, shady, flip-floppy policies, they just railed and railed against President Obama. So all these right-wingers have been going on and on and ON and ON about how horrible President Obama is, how evil he is, etc etc etc. Guess what the Universe is hearing? PRESIDENT OBAMA.
That’s right. Just loads of energy heading to Obama. The Universe doesn’t hear negatives, it just sees where the energy goes and follows suit.
So thanks Fox News and crazy right-wing conspiracy-theorists* – we couldn’t have won this election without ya.
*To my many friends and family who are Republicans, please don’t think I think you’re crazy. I don’t. Most of you have legitimate points of view and concerns about the direction our country is headed and are not at all crazy. Just Conservative and that’s fine. I’m talking about the “Obama made the hurricanes happen” kind of crazy here… Just to be clear.
PS – Extra thanks to my very astute husband for picking up on this and pointing out that Fox, et al, probably helped a lot, in a Law of Attraction manner of speaking anyway. :D
