The Precipice of Change & Why It Gets Worse Before It Gets Better

In the past few years we have seen some crazy hate campaigns going on in the media. Usually disguised as crusades for acceptance, equality or important political issues, but the true intention of these campaigns is usually to keep people distracted and divided.

In the UK we have Brexit keeping tensions high, in the US there is Trump and in between we have campaigns for racial equality, equality of the genders and more. All of which seem to be stirring up hate, anger and division.

Before I go any further, I would like to say that this is not a post on politics, issues on equality or anything like that. I am discussing how damaging all the dark energy, that is being fired up, is having and the reason for it.

I am not into politics and would never aim to influence anyone’s opinion on these matters, but what is happening now is seriously ugly, and anyone who is Sensitive will be horribly affected by the division, aggression and hate purposely stimulated.

The above campaigns are normally disguised as ‘pushes towards positive progression’, but as always within the mainstream media there is usually a hidden agenda to keep people away from their truth and self-evolvement.

Everyone wants to be accepted, and we are being told that we should be more accepting of those who are different. Acceptance of others is a good thing and should definitely be encouraged. But by stirring up hate in order to achieve this will not work. Hatred will never encourage acceptance. Evil begets evil, anger begets anger and hate begets hate.

The reason I wanted to address this subject today is because the type of energy that is being stirred up is the kind that brings an Empath down fast, if they are unfortunate enough to get caught up in it, and distracted from their own evolvement.

It is very easy for an Empath to lift the energy of others, in the form of opinions and ideas, and take them on as their own. We don’t even have to be physically in the presence of another for this to happen, reading online articles or watching videos can have the same impact. We can become so swayed by overwhelming opinions and energy that we get distracted from our life and dragged into a ‘manufactured war’. A war between people.

People are purposely being fired against each other and it is so awful to bear witness to, especially as an Empath.

Within the political world there has always been different parties, people standing for different reasons and rights. But never before have I seen such animosity stirred up, supposedly in the name of ‘standing for what is right’.

We have campaigns telling the world how we should be more accepting of others, but at the same time we are shown to hate those who don’t have the same opinions as us. It is considered ok to attack anyone who does not hold the same view, political or other, or to make assumptions on another’s beliefs and ideologies.

From where I stand, the message coming across is that its ok to silence, intimidate or attack those who stand up for what they believe in, if it doesn’t fit in with the narrative of the mainstream media. But how is this in any way progress?

But the truth is it’s not meant to be progress. It’s meant to throw us off track and keep us from our light.

A couple of months ago I watched a ‘Roast of Rob Lowe’ on Comedy Central. The panel of Roasters, and the audience, was filled with celebrities and well-known faces. It was just like any other Roast, of below-the-belt-banter, until Anne Coulthard got up. Talk about tumbleweeds.  

I must admit, I don’t know much about Anne Coulthard other than she is an advocate for Trump. But when she stood up, to do her Roast, the audience jeered her in such a hateful way and showed her nothing but contempt that it was difficult to watch. If the jeering was done in the ‘banterish’ way of the Roast, it might be laughed at, but it was hate-mob mentality and seriously uncomfortable viewing. Revulsion was written on the majority’s faces. And it sent a message to say if you don’t think like us or agree with us, then this is how we will treat you. This is extreme narcissism and it is scary that it seems to be so accepted!

I get that everyone has their own political opinions and beliefs. And so they should. Politics has always been an ugly arena; but the intimidation that is now happening is bullying and is not the behaviour that should be passed off as acceptable in a supposedly progressive society. We cannot be told that bullying is bad then show it as entertainment. Unless, of course, if the desired effect is to turn people against each other…

Celebrities are major influencers. People respect and admire them. Seeing celebs behaving towards others with contempt, because of their political leanings, shows the viewing world that this is the way to treat anyone who holds differing opinions.

Encouraging hate will never encourage acceptance. It just distracts and divides. The messages being sent out by the media are both confusing and contradictory. By keeping us distracted and divided it keeps us from finding unity with each other and from finding our own power.

I try to bypass anything that holds the content of hate online, but by spending a lot of time on my laptop, I sometimes find myself being drawn in on YouTube or something. When I do get drawn in, it leaves me deflated and depressed (and in serious need of chocolate). 

There are so many messages of hate being sent out in the guise of ‘striving for acceptance’, but the way these messages are portrayed are just so off track.

Don’t get me wrong, I am all for acceptance, and in a perfect world we would all be capable of accepting everyone for their ‘differences’. But one thing is for sure, hate will always negate acceptance. 

There will always be differing political opinions, religious beliefs, cultural differences and varied outlooks on life. As I have said many times before, we are all different with different life paths (even as Empaths), and that is a good thing, it’s the way it is meant to be. It is so easy to waste this precious life focused on what others do or say and what they believe in, instead of focusing on finding our truth and purpose.

If you pay too much attention to the negative hype, being purposely aggravated, then you will be badly affected. By avoiding the media fracas, you will save yourself a lot of unnecessary suffering and heartache. You will feel more positive about yourself and others. Read this post to learn why Empaths are more at risk from the negativity.

We are in the midst of some incredible times for evolvement; which can be easily missed when focusing on manufactured negativity. I believe that all this BS means we are on the precipice of incredible changes for all (things get worse before they get better), but we still have to participate in any change for the better by keeping ourselves in a higher space. Doing a daily reset helps with this.

When spending your time doing what you love, and away from the media, it automatically elevates you. It also helps keep you protected from the dark energy stirred up out there. You then radiate a more powerful energy which positively impacts those you come into contact with.

Ok, that’s my musings for today.

Hope you are all having a fantastic summer… or winter.

Until next time…

  1. I enjoyed your post, thank you. I don’t follow the MSM, but follow what the ‘dark rulers’ are up to; great reset and all. This is also upsetting, maybe even more since the masses of people don’t seem to realize what’s going on. Pretty hard to be positive about it, but yes, I agree to pulling back and out of it a bit to focus on presence. This is also difficult when you’re an empath and also a truth seeker/researcher lol. The only thing that doesn’t always resonate with me in a multitude of your articles is your mention of ‘staying, being positive’…this can also be used to suppress real feelings and cause more harm than good. I believe if nature created anger, then it has it’s uses. Fear too. As you can see, fear is being misused as a control tool for populations, so the natural response is anger. There is even a phrase called ; sacred rage. Just my thoughts/comments from another perspective..similar but different.

    • Hi Gail,

      You have raised some very good points here. Anger and fear are certainly emotions that come as part and parcel of the human experience. The serve a purpose.

      However, the reason I put emphasis on staying in a more positive place in my posts is because I know how much damage fear and anger cause the physical body. I also know that, as Sensitives, if we allow our minds to be regularly engaged within these emotions, we can get stuck in a dark place.

      It is much easier for humans to go into a space of fear or anger than it is for us to stay in a positive mental space. The mainstream media knows this and is playing on it to distract us from life and keep us in weakened state.

      So, when I write about being positive it is more about staying in alignment with self instead of getting wrapped up in the emotions that are being intentionally stirred up by the ‘dark rulers.’

      You also make a very good point about suppressing feelings. Suppressed feelings cause a lot of damage. I have done it myself with grief and it came back to haunt me.

      I think this is a good subject to cover in an article. If you wouldn’t mind, I would like to use or refer to your comment in my next post?

      Thanks for sharing.

  2. Really, really good Katherine…Thank you for being a calm voice of reason. I feel exactly like this, and 2 wrongs never make a right. There’s so much I don’t like about what’s going on with this world right now. But I also feel that this kind of pain means change. I am hopeful a change for the better. I do dislike the you’re okay if you “belong to my clan” type of thinking. And I don’t like being “shoulded”. I got enough of that guilt trip stuff when I was little. It’s not my thing to go around protesting or arguing with people. I just want to expand my spirit, be kind in thoughts and deeds and keep my inner peace light shining brightly. Limited time with the news sure helps with that one!

  3. Thank you, Diane – I know it’s difficult for people who are empaths to be involved in today’s political environment. But that is one of the reasons we are where we are today. Next year America will be voting for our next President and other elected officials. I am excited. There are good choices in the running. There are bad choices as well. It’s not difficult to hear the ones that are speaking truth with love in their hearts if we take the time to just quietly listen.

    “The only thing necessary for the triumph of Evil is for good men to do nothing.” Edmund Burke

    • I love that quote. And I certainly agree with it. Sadly, it seems too many ‘good men’ are trying to right wrongs with more wrongs. But yes, quietly listening and tuning into one’s intuition is very revealing. 🙂

      Thanks for sharing, Paula.

  4. I absolutely agree with you! 👍🏻. We can’t solve a problem by thinking the same way as what created the problem in the first place. (I think, if my memory serves my right, that I am paraphrasing Einstein here).

    I just finished reading the book “Flawed” by Cecelia Ahern, and it takes up some of these issues (to the extreme), but it is a thought provoking book dealing with the dilemma “can we, in the name of goodness, do anything we want to create a righteous society?”

    It also makes me think of what Gandalf says in “Lord of the Rings” when Frodo offers him the ring, something like “Do not tempt me for I would use it in order to do good but through me it would wield a terrible power”.

    I wanted to mention something else in this super long comment 😜.

    This post made me somehow think of something that happened to me this summer. I was stopped on the street by two young men working for Amnesty International. They didn’t ask me if I had time, just started talking about a lot of horrible stuff happening in this world, stuff I am very much aware of, but try to shield myself from a bit as I am a HSP Empath. I thought, by the way the talk was going, it was a signature campaign, which I was totally okay with. But then the guy talking asked me for my phone number, being the way I am I gave it to him. Then he asked what address to put me down with. Then I hesitated, so I said, truthfully, that I live abroad. Then he said that that was okay as long as I had a Norwegian account number. Then I understood that they were actually registering me for monthly donations! They had never even asked me about it! I am a freelance writer and I live in India on a very different budget that Norwegians do so there was no way I could give monthly Norwegian “sized” donations, so I lied and said I didn’t have a Norwegian account number. But I assured them that I fully support Amnesty and their work. Then they went their way. The rest of the day I felt bad and I was also afraid that I was gonna bump into them again.

    This kind of tricking people in the name of goodness I do not approve of. You never know someone’s life situation and economy AND I do not support using guilt to force kindness. It just isn’t the way to do it in my opinion.

    Okay, I’m sorry to have taken so much space here! 😜. Just had a lot on my mind.

    Great post! 😊👍🏻
