Dear Barack

Dear Barack,

After the stunning election of 2016, you tried to process what happened.  You didn’t believe Trump would be elected. You pondered, behind closed doors, “What if we were wrong….Maybe we pushed too far…maybe people just want to fall back into their tribe.  Sometimes I wonder whether I was 10 or 20 years too early.”   You questioned If somehow you underestimated those Americans who felt left behind.

And, frankly, your instincts were good. You were a bit early. I know this because I too feel as if I am a bit early, with so much awareness, being here on Planet Earth, and being met with so much resistance in such a dense environment.

You and Michelle offered an enlightened consciousness to the White House, a more balanced masculine and feminine in a system that as you know has been imbalanced to the patriarchy for a very long time.

You built on that more enlightened consciousness, a presidency that will go down in history, that exemplifies ideas and policies of a forward nature.  In spite of the obstacles clearly in your path, you managed to bring to the country a sense of compassion and fairness.

And as is true for progress, there is always backlash. It’s the natural order of things.  What is happening is that the imbalanced patriarchy is feeling vulnerable. A word that the masculine does not like very much.

It is seeing that America, underscored by your Presidency, is becoming too culturally diverse, and that women are becoming more vocal and rising to greater positions of power. It’s not that a certain portion of white America has been left behind, but that they are getting nervous because they fear change.

What they see as a threat to their own identity we see as just progress.

They are not as concerned about their jobs being taken or the economy as you might think. Their real concern is that they are losing their identity. So those are the ones who voted for Trump. The saw in him someone who could identify with them.

Not that he had their best interest at heart. But that he represents the white male patriarchy. He’s a throwback to the fifties. Sexist, racist, homophobic and xenophobic. He tapped into the worst fears of those who will overlook corruption and abuse of power or even condone it, in their leader. All in the name of protecting their identity.

He brings out the worst impulses in his followers.  You brought out the highest in yours.

You said so beautifully in a speech in Selma, “We respect the past, but we don’t pine for the past. We don’t fear the future; we grab for it. America is not some fragile thing.”

Trump sees in you a real threat, as he does with Hillary, so he goes for the jugular. You represent progress and a more enlightened consciousness. His role on the planet is to be the channel for the parts of the consciousness that are holding strong to stasis, and to an arrested development.

There are stuck energies on the planet, not just here in the United States. The planet is very unbalanced toward the masculine, mental energies. But there has been a shift in consciousness, brought here by a few enlightened souls, like yourself.

The much-needed feminine energies are here and they are being noticed. It’s no coincidence that there was a woman contending for the most important position in the world.  And that there has been, since her losing that opportunity, since Trump’s inauguration, a major outcry from women across the globe. They are awakening like never before.

Your doubts are natural, because those on the leading edge of change always have doubts. But I would say that everything worked out perfectly. You helped to profoundly shift a consciousness that had been very stuck for a very long time.

And what is happening right now with the Trump administration is perfect, too. This too is needed in order to highlight where there has been a darkness hidden in plain sight. It’s all coming out to be reckoned with.

It’s not about being perfect in all of this, because that’s impossible.  But just the idea that you, my friend, are exercising self-reflection, looking back, seeing if something could have been done differently is a highly evolved thing to do.

That is something we don’t see at all in our current President.

In truth, your legacy cannot really be undone.  We can’t unring that bell.  You created a new potential, which future generations will continue to embody.

And on a lighter note, we can look to the Simpsons for wisdom, the beloved animated cartoon characters that have eerily predicted the future, like Trump’s election as President, and his successor, Lisa Simpson, whose first job as commander-in-chief is to clean up the deficit left by Trump.

Perhaps we will witness a Lisa Simpson as our President in our lifetime.  You have helped set the stage for that to happen, and Hillary, against all odds, has carved out the path.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for being here, and for taking on a most difficult role in the name of Love.

My best to Michelle.

    I LOVE this blog Maria. I am a BIG BIG Obama fan. I always felt he was a lightworker; I FELT his energy very strongly from the beginning. Thank you for writing this.

    1. I’m so glad you enjoyed it, mom2bzs. I have felt drawn of late to listen to his earlier speeches on YouTube. And even though I was thrilled he served as President for eight years, I think I appreciate him now more than I even did back then….funny how that works. Don’t know what you got till it’s gone…💕

  2. Oh my gosh! We must have read the same article because I thought about writing to him. I love them very much and i hated to think he was second guessing himself. They gave us such hope. I AM a huge fan.

    Thanks for saying so beautifully what I wanted to. PERFECT!!!!

    Love love love

    1. Wow, Elizabeth, I love the synchronicities! I will never tire of them. Agreed, they did give us such hope. They are missed. Apparently, and thankfully, they are continuing to be voices for that hope. They are going to be doing some videos on Netflix.

      And thank you for reblogging on elizabethsadhu 💕💕💕

    Love this. I remember reading a book many years ago about idigos and the author said she was keeping an eye on a young politician named Barack Obama because he was an indigo/lightworker…….long before his run for presidency…..

    1. How interesting, Elila. I believe it. In fact, I read that he is a reincarnation of… wait for it…..Abraham Lincoln. I guess I can see that, having the soul of a man who emancipated the slaves.

      1. Elila and Maria!

        Both are extremely credible to me. He and Michelle are both such beautiful beings. You feel how beautiful energetically they are.

        I have heard about the Abraham Lincoln idea quite a few times from many different sources. ♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️

        Love you all!!!!

    Maria and Elizabeth!

    I wish I could recall the name of the book–but I distinctly recall standing in a Barnes and Noble in FL reading it and enthralled by it……

    Agree about he and Michelle. They both seem to have a great balance of their own individual masculine/feminine within, both very strong yet gentle for example, and they also seem to have a beautiful balance of the M/F in their relationship; divine counterparts seemingly. I saw a video recently that points out that Frederik and Mary (crown Prince/princess of Denmark) seem to have a similar divine counterpart thing happening. Watched a video of a speech she gave at his 50th birthday and their energy was just really lovely and the mutual respect and love was obvious. It really heartens me to see relationships like these in the world, that they exist at all, and I hope I start noticing those kinds of couples more and more–hope that kind of balanced partnership becomes commonplace!!! Oh also Ellen DeGeneres and Portia DeRossi seem to have it….💜💕

    And So It Is! Beyond beautiful, and I hope you send them a copy, or, that they are following your blog!!! Just Awe…Some My Maria, and exactly my deepest sentiment as well, always has been, always will. ✨💫✨💖

    1. I posted it directly to them on Instagram and also posted it on Instagram, tagging them. Wouldn’t that be fun if they saw it and wrote to Maria??!!??


  6. sweet pea

    oh my goodness Maria 😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭 i can’t even put in to words how beautiful this is 💕💕💕💕💕it gives me chill bumps and tears! every word 💕💕💕💕💕💕

    and Elila, your comment too about Barack & Michelle’s energy 💕💕💕💕💕💕💕💕💕

    love y’all so much 🤗🤗🤗🤗🤗

    1. Sweet pea…you won’t believe this, or, actually you probably will… came so strongly into my consciousness this morning on my way to Starbucks. I get here, fire up my iPad, and see your comment. Woohoo. So happy to hear from you!

      Soooo glad you enjoyed the letter to Barack. I am beginning to read a book about him while he was president written by his top aide, Ben Rhodes. It’s a fascinating look into his legacy and the struggles he encountered as the first Black President.

      1. sweet pea

        yup of course i believe it lolllll 💕💕💕💕💕

        so much love in my heart for him and Michelle, and how you captured in your words what’s happening with the big picture of it all is so perfectly what i feel, and so beautifully written 💕💕💕💕

        1. Thank you, sweet pea. And yes, me too, so much love for him and Michelle. As I listen from time to time, to his talks on YouTube (interviews, speeches, recent and previous) I appreciate him more now, given the stark contrast of the current administration.

          It feels like I can rest in his energies to a degree, because they reflect my energies, our energies as awakened humans. And Michelle, too, is such a compassionate speaker. Both their hearts were 100% into their roles in the White House and on the planet.

          I never felt that from any of the previous presidents, not to this degree at least.

          1. sweet pea

            yes so so much 💕 such beautiful souls.

            the mind warp it takes to feel hatred towards Obama and to admire trump is beyond comprehension to me 😔 it truly feels like the energy between these 2 men and the way people feel towards 1 man vs the other is a glaring representation of the duality of old energy vs new energy in nutshell 😞

            i just know the Obamas have always felt like soul family members for me… they just feel like home 💕💕 such beautiful, brilliant, vibrant, idealistic, compassionate souls. i missssss themmm tooo much 😭😭😭

          2. Well stated, sweet pea.

            Definitely a stark contrast from Trump.

            I miss them too. Fortunately they are launching some videos on Netflix. I’m happy to see that they will still be out there in some capacity. I can’t imagine those two just retiring into obscurity….”President Barack Obama and Michelle Obama have entered into a multi-year agreement to produce films and series for Netflix, potentially including scripted series, unscripted series, docu-series, documentaries, and features.”

            So I’m sure we will see more of them in the future.

    Sweet pea!!!!! Yaaaaaaay! So glad to hear from you my dear! Love right back to you 😊💕. I think of you often and especially when I read Maria’s beautiful letter to Barack I thought I bet sweet pea will love this……and here you are! Hope you are doing well sister pioneer. Everything you say here in your comments (as usual) gets a big “me too” from yours truly–especially this one above about the mind warp–just yes, so exactly. I can’t even comprehend it–and I feel that hate directed at him sort of coming at me too because I love him and think he and Michelle are amazing and I feel protective of them as I am myself if that makes sense? Like they represent so much of what makes me ME that it’s sometimes hard not to take criticism of them personally. Buuuuuuuut I’ve had plenty of practice transcending or deflecting this as most of my family berates him and the town I live in is firmly Republican…..I mean ew it is STICKY out there Lol.

    Elizabeth– good on you Sistar for finding a way to connect our Obamas with Maria’s gorgeous letter!! Bravo! I so hope they see it!

    And Maria me too on appreciating them even more now. Another thing I love about them is that even in the most serious roles on the planet they could still be FUN (I get a thrill and a giggle every time I think ” ‘Obama out.’ Mic. Drop.”.

    1. Right, Elila, it’s sometimes challenging to not take it personally even when someone you know avidly supports Trump. Especially as a woman. It feels like if they support a man who is a woman hater, there is a part of them that is also misogynistic.

      A person’s attitude and behaviors toward women is all I need to know about that person. It’s a deal-breaker for me.

      And it should have been a deal-breaker for electing Trump. Yet his misogyny gets relegated to the bottom of the list of what concerns people about him. The toxic patriarchy at its worst.

      But to your point that it’s incomprehensible that people avidly support him. What I am finding with many of those people is they live in a kind of bubble. And in their bubble they can’t hear the truth about him because then They would have to examine their own identity, and their own darkness. Which is of course just their own fear. I see very little self reflection in them.

      And me too, I love Obama’s sense of humor.

    aw Elila big hug 🤗 🤗🤗💕💕💕💕and yes i adore them 💕

    ug i can’t imagine 😩 i’m lucky that aside from 1 person, i don’t have a single other trump supporter in my life… my circle is small these days 😋 but anyone left can’t stand him. oddly the 1 person i know who is, is a lady i see for a type of energy based healing bodywork 😩 the cognitive dissonance is mind blowing… how she can practice an energy healing skill(and shes great), but then she’s politically right wing and supports trump 😩😩😩 but she’s an older christian lady, and from my upbringing i know too darn well that women in organized religion have perfected the art of denying what feels right to follow what they are told 😔😔😔

    but yes Maria, i think it really is more about clinging to the old energy and him telling them their darkness is “acceptable” and “right” so that they don’t actually have to face it and grow.

    all of us here know too darn well how painful the growth is 😭😭😭 but good gracious, when i see how all these people are so asleep and full of hatred and so stuck in those old energies, i’m so so grateful to be awakening and open and always going towards light and seeking love 💕💕💕

  9. Elila

    Yes, Maria, that’s it exactly! It feels like part of them must be misogynistic as well–and it’s from females too! It’s a deal breaker for me too, for anyone new. I feel like I could meet anyone and only have to ask one question that would tell me all I need to know about them — “what’s your take on the prez?” Unfortunately its my immediate family who support him, and it’s really just coming from fear (of change, of the unknown, of losing all they’ve accumulated, etc), and they’re SO BUSY trying to keep up with it all that there is no time to reflect or question any of it. They just don’t have the mental space to go there. They are not bad people, just always scared and feeling behind the eight ball. And yep any attempt to bring light and understanding or to change their minds is utterly futile, so we agree to disagree.

    And sweet pea I don’t even have a “circle” anymore lol, so that makes it easier, and I don’t get to spend very much time with my family (who I adore regardless of political misguidance haha). You all here ARE my circle, so I don’t lack for comfort, support, emotional intelligence and like mindedness!!!

    And I’m so grateful to you, Maria, for creating and maintaining this beautiful space for us to be ourselves, and to hang out with others who are awake in a world of sleepies. And I’m grateful for everyone here who shares with, appreciates, and nurtures this community we have. Because of you all I never feel alone!

    Love all around my dear friends 💜💕😊💕💜

    1. Elila and all!

      My mum has became a Fox news watching fanatic! And loves this prez. And gets incensed when people don’t support him. “Stupid libs, stupid Dems”. And is a born again Christian, which is all fine but she doesn’t appear to be living what Jesus advocated. 😀😀♥️♥️

      Yes, virtual family! I love the support and love that is here!

      People can do what they want or support who they want but the spewing of hate is so sad to me.

      I do feel the shift with folks speaking up and the #metoo and #timesup movement, etc.

      Shifting shifting shifting.

      Love you all! And thanks to our fabulous host, Maria! Our dear Sistar Goddess

      Wallowing in gratitude and love,
