One of my favorite books as a child was Girls Can Be Anything. The cover shows a picture of a little girl as president of the United States. America is the land of the free, home of the brave, but are we brave? I’ve always found America to be plagued by fear. To not elect a woman president is certainly based on fear, not courage.
We happen to have a stellar and capable candidate in Ms. Hillary Clinton. It's time! With her 60s counter culture roots, one of the most progressive generations to date, this woman has a lifetime of experience in public service; a Yale law school graduate inspired by Martin Luther King, she became First Lady of Arkansas, First Lady of the United States, United States Senator, and Secretary of State.
She has withstood brutal attacks from fearful, misogynistic men; she’s been publicly humiliated for the private affairs of her family; and she constantly undergoes bullets from her opponents who stop at nothing to try and tear her down with pettiness. The problem with this approach, of trying to tear the other party down, is that it’s not good for the country. Just like divorced parents who try to tear each other down hurt the child, opponents who try to tear each other down in the political system hurt this country. Besides, if there is one thing Ms. Hillary will not do, it's be brought down. The strength and determination she has shown rivals any great U.S. president.
For those who think she is too soft to be commander-in-chief, go read How to Win Friends & Influence People. Hillary's smart - when you have compassion, you are able to understand what makes other people tick, which puts you in a position of power. Compassion & communication are required to get your enemies to act in your favor, and these are natural feminine traits. Women know what it's like to be second class citizens, therefore they are better advocates for human rights.
Divine feminine energy is what is most needed to heal this country because right now there’s an imbalance towards masculine energy, which is causing mental & physical illness in the U.S. It's not just women who are suffering. Over half my audience are men in dire need of nurturing. Women have shown to be natural relationship harmonizers in research studies. Our sickness has bled onto other countries, and although they are angry at America, they respect Ms. Clinton. My audience from around the world tells me so.
Speaking of other countries, 49 nations have appointed a women head of state, and for a country that considers itself progressive and democratic as a leader in the world, we're obviously not seeing ourselves clearly. Warren Buffet, one of the wealthiest men in America and shrewd investor not only supports Hillary, but he knows a good investment when he sees it, and he sees it in her. So many people love to criticize but I'd like to see them get up and do a better job than she could do.
After studying Hillary Clinton for many years, I have grown a deep respect for her, and I have recently become privileged to have her acquaintance. But this isn't just about Hillary Clinton; it's about something much bigger. This is about the evolution of our country. I urge you to open up your heart, let go of your fear, and support Hillary Clinton, now and in the next election, because surely as we progress as a country it will help you in your personal life to harmonize your relationships and radiate with confidence!
