Why So Many People Are Reacting Strongly To This Recent Presidential Election

skulls-dreamstime_xs_24929425People at all points on the political spectrum are finding themselves unexpectedly upset at the results of this election and I think I may have discovered the common factor involved.

I have been counseling several people who supported the winning candidate and were very surprised at how difficult life has become for them since the election. In one case,the person became moody and depressed. In another there was unexpected uncertainty and fear.

I have also been corresponding with several old acquaintances who supported the losing candidate and they are displayed personality aspects I had never seen before in them. Some are distraught and truly fearful, while others are angry and feel betrayed by what is happening to the stable data they have been relying on all their lives.

Partisan media on both sides of the election has played a huge role in stirring up old resentments and fears by exaggerated accounts of evil actions and hidden dangers from the regime change that has occurred and is still occurring.

Yes, the media has been madly fanning the flames of discontent and churning up deep reservoirs of ancient fears that they have no understanding of. When the media pushes emotional buttons to get a reaction they can exploit, they are truly messing with forces that are volcanic in nature.

In session after session, I am finding memories of ancient regime changes that were accompanied by wholesale slaughter of innocents and an entire spectrum of punishment, torture and bloodshed involving entire populations. These were regimes which had lasted for many years and had become more corrupt and brutal over time The effort required to overthrow these regimes was significant and seemed to require extreme force, so the revolutions were not frequent nor were they peaceful. When the new factions assumed command they invariably set out to eliminate forever any change of a return to the old regime through punishment and terror, thus insuring resentment in all who witnessed these atrocities.

Killing off a resistant population after a regime change may wipe out all of the hostiles in bodies but almost guarantees a vast armada of disembodied spirits out for revenge or filled with terror at the prospect of another regime change. These spirits are still with us and they are very disturbed at the results of this election, because of the enormity of the change in the power structure.

From what I am seeing in session and through conversations with those who are fearful and upset, this regime change is stirring up older and far more bloody regime changes of the distant past.

SRT processing will help relieve the distress for those who can be reached with spiritual counseling. For those who resist the thought of counseling, getting them to think of what they have in common with those who hold other views will calm them down and getting them involved in positive activities to create a brighter future can stabilize them and make them productive again.

Understanding the role of the media in stirring up their fears can help also. They need to understand that partisan media can be very destructive, especially when only provides a point of view that you agree with.

Major Research Project – Volunteers Needed

fotosearch_k11957326The presidential election has resulted in major upset in some of the population and continuing violence and looting in some cities.

I have been having strained conversations with some longtime friends and acquaintances and I finally had an incredible realization as a result of our conversations.

I have observed for some time that mainstream media acts as a third party to foment trouble between opposing groups in order to appear relevant and to attract readers, and in this election they have a splendid opportunity.

Even though these media people may not understand the underlying source of the public’s anger, they know how to push buttons and get some people mobilized to act in certain ways.

They do not know why their actions work on some people and not on others, but the research we have done in Spiritual Rescue Technology gives us some insight into what is actually going on and why some people are galvanized by certain accusations and others have a completely different viewpoint.

I failed to use caring communication in my initial exchanges with people upset by the election and I failed to do the most elementary step in attempting to understand someone with a different viewpoint, which is to be willing to BE that other person.

As soon as I was willing to be one of these upset people and adopt their viewpoint without any reservations, I saw what was going on and why they felt upset about something which we on the other side saw quite differently.

It is NOT a matter of right or wrong. It is the existence of charged areas of life which are being exploited and these areas are so charged that it takes very little to set them off.

There is a common thread of betrayal that links the people who are burning Oakland and looting stores and those who see a man who is totally unfit for office because he appears to be a sexual predator and still gets elected.

The people on the other side see a traitorous criminal with a trail of dead bodies with supporters who are totally blind to the actual crimes that have been committed.
The election results seem to be totally unfair to those who are upset by this election. It is not real to them that any sensible person could hold totally different views.

It is not a matter of intelligence, as there are people on both sides who are intelligent and both view the other side as being deluded and possibly mentally deficient. Both view the actions of the other side as insanity, and they are right!

Insanity is when someone you care about does things that don’t make sense and can’t be argued with.

Pushing the right emotional buttons will do that and more. Using the right triggers can prompt a person to commit violent crimes or induce lasting hatreds that cannot be reduced by conversation alone.

Since we deal with these daily in SRT processing, it occurred to me that we needed to take a look at the real source of the upset from the results of this latest presidential election and who is actually pushing the emotional buttons and why.

My first clue was that people exposed to the same information reacted quite differently and saw the reactions of the other side as clueless or insane. There was almost no middle ground. Each side saw their chosen one as relatively blameless and saw the other side as the most toxic personality possible.

In many cases, the people on opposite sides had worked together in harmony for many years or been acquaintances with common goals for many years.

So, what could have caused the extreme division between them and the universal feeling that the other side were unbelievable idiots incapable of rational thought?

I think I know what is going on and am offering free sessions to the first 5 people who would like to get rid of their anger and frustration at the situation that is occurring.

If you would be interested in some free SRT sessions to get some understanding of the real source of your upset at the results of the election, please let me know.

These sessions will not change your mind about your choice of candidate, but may give you an entirely different perspective on what has happened as a result of this election.

If you are interested in finding out what has actually been triggered, give me a call and we can set up some free sessions.

Best regards,
