I'm just going to say it outright...
Oprah needs to run for president.
I love that woman.
Now before we dive into the sinkhole that is politics, I have to preface this by saying, I don't often talk about politics, mostly because I think a lot of it is just total nonsense. A bunch of egos out of control in a corrupt system that gets more corrupt by the minute.
Also, when talking politics everyone seems to get all twisted in knots before the conversation has even started.
Ok. Rant over.
That being said, due to recent events, where a certain toupee'd wearing child made it into the White House I'm feeling rather uneasy and have been hopefully keeping my eyes out for the eventual force of light that will overshadow this darkness.
It's no secret that this world is in a "huge" period of growth. And, as you well know, growth can be incredibly painful at times.
Like step on a lego block with your bare foot painful. No bueno.
Because this period of growth has been especially painful. I anticipate so much brightness and good coming from it, we will all have to start wearing sunglasses and sunblock just to function.
I think Oprah could be a big part of the light.
The fact is, this planet needs some serious mothering.
It needs nurturing, compassion, empathy, love, unity, understanding, and nourishment on a very deep level.
It's the time for women.
This world has been mainly run by men for long enough. And as much as I love men. And I do. We're now finding ourselves quite out of balance.
As my good friend always says "you need both the yin and the yang".
Yang energy is fiery and powerful. It's hard. It's active. It's masculine.
We've been operating under that Yang energy and now we've gone off the yang deep end.
In comparison, Yin energy is soft. It's slowness. It's feminine.
Sounds good right about now eh? *excuse my Canadian*
It sounds good because we need it. And we need it badly.
Why I think Oprah would be such a good candidate, is because she is a beautiful representation of strong female (yin) power. She is steady, she is soft, yet she has a backbone stronger than anyone's I've seen.
She is Mother.
And right now the world needs a serious time out in the corner. Followed by a big hug and some healthy snacks of course.
I'm a firm believer that everything happens for a reason. There is a reason that Oprah has the kind of reputation and experience that she does. There is a reason that at this point in her life and career she could make a move like this. There is a reason that this toupee-wearing child is running the show now. Isn't it kinda wonderful how beautifully orchestrated the universe is?
I mean... Speilberg couldn't make this shit up.
We needed to be shaken up. We needed to see just how divided and in pain the world really is. We needed to feel it's darkness and heaviness so we could course correct.
Think about all the good that has happened since all this awful shit went down...
Women have risen up on SO many levels I have chills as I write this. The power is palpable.
Oprah pretty much captures the energy perfectly in her recent acceptance speech for receiving the Cecil B Mille Award at the 2017 Golden Globes.
I don't know about you, but by the end of it, I was crying. A kind of crying that wasn't from a sad place, but a relieved and powerful place. We have been going for too long living in a man's world.
This has resulted in an entire gender being oppressed for generations. Enough of that shit.
As Oprah so eloquently said...
"for too long, women have not been heard of believed if they dare speak the truth to the power of those men"
What an amazing time to be alive. To start to witness women stepping up and really taking what is rightfully theirs.
I've been saying for a while now, this world needs women. Women are willing to talk. Women and sensitive but also hold such a strong steady strength.
The perfect antidote to the sickness of our time.
What an exciting time to be alive.
If Oprah runs for president, the only reason I would be seriously remiss would be that I can't vote because alas... I am not a US citizen.
I'll be cheering for you from the sideline Oprah.
Sincerely your host,
