Every now and then someone comes along with a soul mission to wake us all up. Trump is one of them.
There’s no other explanation for him being elected as the President of the US other than it was divine intervention.
Spirit wanted him as President so he would hold a mirror up for us all in order to recognize that what we find despicable and loathsome in him is a reflection of our own self-hatred and shadow stuff.
Have we got that lesson yet? I don’t think so. It’s still all about him, I think.
Harvey Weinstein is another one of those souls. But this current situation is very different and more hopeful.
While it has been easy to deny that we own any of Trump’s most despicable qualities, I doubt there is anyone with any sensitivity at all who is not feeling uncomfortable about what Harvey is mirroring for us all in terms of sexual harassment.
After all, who hasn’t made light of it, ignored it even when it was exposed, made jokes about it, made excuses or downplayed it and even lauded it (as did Trump when caught on an open mic).
And how many of us can say they haven’t engaged in some kind of sexual power play even if it was of subtle nature.
The other way this is very different is how those who have suffered sexual harassment and in many cases what amounts to blackmail – play ball, or I’ll ruin you – are coming forward to make public their experiences even from a number of years back.
Until now this was the flip side of what was the status-quo power game, in that before this #Me Too movement got going women had tended to stay quiet and acquiescent about this situation.
They had bought into the belief that it was somehow their fault and to speak out about it would cause embarrassment and shame. And they would not be believed anyway.
Now, all of a sudden, because of Harvey Weinstein and the outrage he has caused, they have become emboldened. They are claiming their power, and at long last, they are being heard. But are they FREE?
Many remain wounded and still regard themselves as victims. For as long as they feel this way, they are NOT free. They will remain disempowered, and the #Me Too movement will wither and die on the vine.
The only way for them to be really free and at the same time create forward momentum for the #Me Too movement, is to first apply the process of Radical Forgiveness to their own experience by forgiving Harvey or whoever was the predator and then apply Radical Forgiveness to the entire situation to clear the entire energy field of this kind of toxicity. (For more on Radical Forgiveness, click here.)
Then they would need to find it in their hearts to forgive themselves for any part they might have played in allowing it to persist, even though we know that it was all meant to be that way in order to heal the split between male and female.
In order for the #Me Too movement to survive, Radical Forgiveness should be a big part of #Me Too movement. For as long as we make it all about a predator, nothing will change.

I am also willing to arrange a special “#Me Too” Miracles Workshop in California specifically for women who have been sexually harassed by Harvey Weinstein or some other man in power and are having some difficulty letting it go.
