What To Do If You're Feeling Negative About the Election Results

Well, the people have spoken. We have a new American president. About half the country is elated, and the other half is despondent and pissed off. 

Remember how in my last post, last weekend, I said people needed to focus on their own candidate and what they wanted? Well, when I saw all of the numerous Trump postings on Facebook for the past 18 months or so, I had a feeling early on that he had a good chance at running away with this.

Facebook has officially turned into a train wreck during the past week. There's an awful lot of angry, upset, and downright sad voters right now that supported Hillary Clinton. I thought maybe I'd try to put some things into perspective using what I've learned with the law of attraction. 

First of all, if you are an unhappy voter I highly advise not taking your wrath to the streets like so many protestors are doing right now. I really do not think getting angry and violent, especially towards other people and those that voted for Trump, is the answer. Remember, law of attraction teaches that what we focuses on expands. Focusing on anger, and focusing on a feeling that you've somehow been duped (and you weren't; it's called democracy) by the system in some way, is just going to continue to bring feelings of anger.

But there's another little LOA rule that I've read and heard about many times, and that's what you resists, persists. And we have an awful lot of resistance out there to Trump being the President-elect. There are people that want the vote revoked. 

That's just not going to happen, and it shouldn't. We've had a democratically-decided presidential election for two centuries now. Trump is our new president. He won, whether people are happy with it or not. The sooner the anti-Trump people accept that, the sooner they can begin to move forward. 

I would suggest to people that are upset that instead of calling the other side nasty names and doing something embarrassing in public they might live to regret, that they instead channel the energy into something positive, perhaps by getting involved with their political party and focusing on who could possibly run four years from now. Or, if you're concerned about preserving gay rights, abortion, or any other cause that you fear Trump is going to take away, get involved with a local organization. Remember, you want to focus on what you do want. 

And if you're worried about what a Trump presidency is going to look like (I've heard everything on Facebook from "He's going to deport ALL immigrants, not just the illegal ones," and "He's going to bad gay marriage") let me say this: no one can predict the future. Considering that the media certainly couldn't predict the outcome of this election, no one can predict exactly what the next four years are going to bring. One of the biggest things I've learned from LOA teachings is not to worry about anything anymore, unless something actually happens. I just don't. The past is gone and no one can predict what the future can bring. We can only focus on the present. 

I also think removing yourself from social media and any sources of your anger and doing something stress relieving or fun works wonders. Go for a walk, play with a pet, read a book, etc. 

Lastly (and I know this is difficult for a lot of people) I'd send good thoughts to the new incoming administration. Ask the Universe to guide them into making the right decisions for the good of the country and all American citizens that can benefit all of us. 

I had a good money week last week -- so in my next video post, I'm going to be talking about good luck charms and if they really bring good luck! Enjoy the rest of the weekend.
