    • Thanks so much for stopping by, BJ! I know that this topic is hard for so many but ignoring our uncomfortable feelings is not the way to flow into love and abundance.

      Hang in there!

  1. Thanks for this post. I think this is a challenging time for us all and it’s easy to get lost in fear or anger. I like the idea of detachment. It helps to walk back out of those strong negative reactions.

    I keep thinking of Abraham’s phrase, “when you know what you don’t want, you know what you do want.” This time is certainly clarifying.

    I do see lots to celebrate in the ways we’re reacting to this presidency. It’s like that advice in a crisis to “look to the helpers.” A lot of us are moved to help our communities more and it is heartening.

    Detachment is great advice. I think the next step is to clearly envision what we want to see.

    • Hi Mary,

      Thanks for your comments. Detachment is not an easy course of study, LOL. Universe often gives poignantly perfect circumstances for a human to practice detachment skills.

      I do believe there is a vortex of love and light that co-exists with the mass of unrest out there. I appreciate you joining me in strengthening that Vortex!

      Love,
      Catherine

    • Hi Sally,

      Thanks for your input. Even though you are in Australia, it is inspiring that you feel an affinity for this concept. Detachment can be leveraged in every life area….

      Game on, right?

      Love,
      Catherine

    I am trying very hard to detach from the problem I mentioned yesterday. Also trying to detach from the guilt this event is causing me.

    • Hey Harriet,

      I so get it. Some life events are near impossible to detach from. Thankfully, Uni doesn’t require us to be experts. No, all we have to do is to be explorers and experimenters.

      Allow yourself to invite detachment in however is logical. It will not disappoint.

      Love,
      Catherine

  3. Thank you for your enlightening, uplifting post, Catherine. If I may go a step further, I would suggest generously donating one’s time to causes that make the world a better place… as a way to thrive during this out-of-the-ordinary, taxing period. Throughout my adult life, I have focused my work on the empowerment of women and girls, but since the last election, my resolve has multiplied tenfold. In addition to being a more outspoken advocate for women and inclusion, and doing work in my day job that shines a light on exceptional girls, I also began volunteering, collecting sanitary pads to donate to shelters for women refugees. It’s been like manna for my soul.

    • Hi Elena,

      Thank you so much for your thoughtful reply and great idea! I love when people think of creative ways to spin the positivity that does co-exist at this time. No one is saying that the loud social and political dilemmas aren’t awful, there is just a way to focus elsewhere, pivot, as Abraham Hicks calls it. I believe we make a difference when we transmute our ill will into grace in action!

      Great idea!!

    Thank you for this post. Great instruction on how to get out of the quicksand of negativity one thought at a time. Loved it.

    • Thanks for stopping by, Maggie! I love how Abraham teaches there is nothing we can’t pivot from, even a political figure!

      Love,
      Catherine
