While it seems overly simplistic and more than a bit esoteric, with the election
of Barack Obama as president, we are unwinding a pattern of cursing a sacred
name. The combination of vowels found in the names "Obama" and "Osama" is not a coincidence. "Ama" is a root word in many languages for "mother" and "love." Placing a prefix such as "O" before it simply defines which quality of love.
In an ideal world, the words created using "ama" also generate the intention of loving deeds and care for the world. People who have chosen or been given names with this root are also given the opportunity, each time their name is spoken, to generate this quality of consciousness around them.
In the U.S., we have cursed "ama." Literally, we have cursed the feminine out loud for the past seven years. This is not about what Osama bin Laden did or didn’t do. How he and all those with "ama" in their names use the blessing of the Divine Feminine is held within their souls. My point is that by speaking that name with hatred, we have created an energetic pattern of cursing "ama," the Divine Mother, within ourselves and our country.
This is not the start of our disowning the Divine Feminine. Rather, it is the revealing and ending of the practice. Those whom we in the U.S. refer to as our country’s Founding Fathers have incarnated as a group multiple times. Clearly, their specialty (and learning process) is around creating systems of government that allow people to individuate and develop their unique soul properties while still listening to the greater impulses of Spirit.
Our collective unconscious
I don’t feel it was the Founding Father’s intention that the U.S. government turn away from the Divine Feminine. But it happened. Our collective unconscious focused on the profane, or non-sacred masculine principles more and more. And now, that slowly moving pendulum of 13,000 years is crossing into a new connection to Spirit. The principles of Divine Feminine and Sacred Masculine, which those who founded the U.S. invoked in its inception, are responding.
Like seedlings emerging after a sudden frost, what was planted hundreds of years ago here, thousands of years ago in Egypt, and tens of thousands of years ago in Lemuria, is awakening. Our souls know it. We feel the pendulum swinging slowly towards 2012, towards the full reconnection to Spirit. How can our world, in finances and politics, not reflect this?
The governments founded by the souls that also created the U.S. were not meant simply to exist and function for a short span of historical time. Rather, they were meant to be a series of practices for what is coming. Our full reconnection to Spirit requires that each of us understand and utilize our individual power, with compassion and grace toward others.
What was built without sacredness is falling away. What arises is the sacredness that has waited, patiently, to arise.
There are inevitable hurdles before the world and the U.S. We will pass through the same chaos regardless of who is the U.S. president. The question is, which way will we move out from that point? If we enter into the chaos in fear, we move through the chaos without vision. Entering with our heart open allows us to retain our vision, both individually and as a group, while we move through the chaos.
Our collective unconscious is being awakened each day a bit more, just like the bright sunlight stirs us out of our slumber each morning. As we move more deeply into chaos, we also move closer to the brilliance of the sunlight. Are we ready to hear the truth? Are we ready to see what the sunlight will let us see easily?
A final note
As we choose to speak "Obama" with a sense of joy and support, we will unwind the cursing we have created upon the name "Osama," as well. This will move us out of the polarity of "us versus them" that the current wars are founded upon.
And yes, Joe Biden’s last name will work in the same fashion upon "bin Laden." The family’s name of "bin Laden" may be released from its position in a cycle of cursing. And this will help to loosen financial pressures. Because as our hearts are heavy, we do not exhibit or choose to act out of compassion. And money is a result of the flowing of spirit. Where there is generosity, compassion and love, spirit flows and money follows.
May your days be abundant with generosity, curiosity and creativity.
