Dear First Lady

 

You're a sacred force of sensuality

You've come to heal the female sexual organ

Which has endured much pain

Through the passage of time

You've been sent to heal it

Returning it to the Master's plan

By mere virtue of BEING

You're a sacred force of an Otherworldly order that oozes pure delight and sheer brilliance

One with God's universal power of salvation

You're powerful beyond measure

guided by love and connectedness

In order to give way to all things lovely, pleasant and beautiful

You're a servant, sent from above

To restore order

True to your name, which means

"Who is like God"

 

I read that after you and your family visited the Cape Coast Castle, where Africans were held in dungeons until they were marched in shackles to ships headed to the Americas, the President described that experience as;

 

"All the pain and all the hardships, all the injustices and all the indignities on the voyage from slavery to freedom."

 

Is it possible to heal these wounds, thus racial devides?

 

Dr Joy DeGruy informs us that,

Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome:

is not a "disorder" that can simply be treated and remedied clinically but rather must necessarily require a profound social and structural change in Americans and American institutions that continue to promote inequalities and injustice.

 

A house that is not built on solid foundation cannot stand.

 

Eckart Tolle says;

 

"The pain-body doesn't want you to observe it directly and see it for what it is. The moment you observe the pain-body, feel its energy within you, and take your attention into it, the identification is broken.

 

A higher dimension of consciousness has come in. I call it presence. You are now the witness or the watcher of the pain-body. This means that it cannot use you anymore by pretending to be you, and it can no longer replenish itself through you. You have found your own innermost strength.

 

Some pain-bodies are obnoxious but relatively harmless, for example, like a child who won't stop whining. Others are vicious and destructive monsters, true demons. Some are physically violent. Some will attack people around you or close to you, while others may attack you, their host. Thoughts and feelings you have about your life then become deeply negative and self-destructive.

 

Illness and accidents are often created in this way. Some pain-bodies drive their hosts to suicide.

 

When you thought you knew a person and then you are suddenly confronted with this alien, nasty creature for the first time, you are in for quite a shock. It is more important, however, to observe it in yourself than in someone else.

 

Watch out for any sign of unhappiness in yourself, in whatever form--- it may be the awakening pain body. This can take the form of irritation, impatience, a somber mood, a desire to hurt, anger, rage, depression, a need to have some drama in your relationship, and so on. Catch it the moment it awakens from its dormant state.

 

The pain-body wants to survive, just like every other entity in existence, and it can only survive if it gets you unconsciously identifying with it. It can then rise up, take you over, "become you", and live through you. It will feed on any experience that resonates with its own kind of energy, anything that creates further pain in whatever form: anger, destructiveness, hatred, grief, emotional drama, violence, and even illness. So the pain-body, when it has taken you over, will create a situation in your life that reflects back its own energy frequency for it to feed on. Pain can only feed on pain. Pain cannot feed on joy. It finds it quite indigestible...

 

The pain-body, which is the dark shadow cast by the ego, is actually afraid of the light of your consciousness. Its survival...depends on your unconscious fear of facing the pain that lives in you. But if you don't face it...you will be forced to relive it again and again."

 

First Lady you say;

 

"The Arts are not just a nice thing to have or to do if there is free time or if one can afford it. Rather, paintings and poetry, music and fashion, design and dialogue, they all define who we are as a people and provide an account of our history for the next generation."

 

Before I traveled to Ireland in my 20s, I and a couple of S.A students spoke via satellite to a group of Irish students about our tragic experiences in hopes of healing one another. We were all nervous, but suddenly, we saw the Irish students laughing, talking, pointing at me;

 

"Look at that one, she looks like Janet Jackson!"

We laughed!

The dialogue began.

 

God's mission is unfathomable! Grandpa I didn't know about this!

Rachel Swarns says;

"At the White House, Mrs Obama used her platform as First Lady to bring some measure of attention to the slavery experience that had shaped her family and the nation. She told students attending a Black History Month program there that slaves had helped build the exucutive mansion and that the Emancipation Proclamation had been signed there.

 

In the Capitol building, she helped unveil a bust of S. Truth, the slave-turned-abolitionist fought for racial and gender equality, telling the audience of dignitaries that she could almost imagine her looking down from heaven."

 

I read that Mrs Obama said;

 

"I hope that Sojourner Truth would be proud to see me, a descendant of slaves, serving as the First Lady of the U.S."

 

I traveled all the way from Africa to tell you, the President and many others that you have continued to embrace Truth's mission in a way that is completely unparalleled and astonishing.

Not only is Truth proud of you, but she continues to sing praises to you, to the Glory of God.

Not only are you the First Lady of America, you are the salt of the earth, a true liberator and a  light to nations.  Your aura is fragrant like the cedars of Lebanon

You are what you teach

All beams within you, thus all around you

For you live your truth

You are in Gandhi's words

The change you want to see in the world!

This characteristic is the only pillar that will outlive all others

What are words without action?

 

I'll never forget how gorgeous you looked the first time you came to South Africa,

In your beautiful suit

Seating with your beautiful children next to grandpa Mandela,

Beautiful inside out.

One of my favorite moments ever!

Ever!

You came to administer justice

So swiftly

I'm in awe of the ways in which God continues to work

The way in which God continues to use you like Ma Moses, Harriet Tubman, Rosa Parks, Ma Sisulu and many others, is amazing

His Hand of Salvation ABSOLUTE

His sense of justice unstoppable!

 

I call that moment the

Double Portion of Peace and Justice

So serene

So pure

So poetic

Your energy healed all of us

You the medicine we needed

Grandpa felt it too;-)

 

Your physical form is

Inspiring, because one is immediately

Enraptured by the sheer force of athleticism, yet feminine beauty.

Swarns wrote that your paternal granny LaVaughn Robinson was smart, athletic, spiritual. She says, During World War 11 LaVaughn found her very first office job, at the United States Depart of Agriculture at a time when the doors that were previously closed to women had begun to swing open. This is not surprising at all Swarns reports that LaVaughn's mother Phoebe Moten was a pioneer who traveled more than any other women in Mrs Obama's family tree, in search of a better life. Through these amazing women, it is clear that Mrs Obama's steps are ordered. Generations yet unborn will lead fuller and well balanced lives, because you are one of the greatest mothers on Earth.

 

I can almost hear granny Phoebe sitting on her bed, quietly murmuring PRODIGAL OBJECTS

 

"...And one day

I get a certain feeling and I'm in Chicago

And I know I lost it say,

400 years ago in Africa,

But on this particular day,

I just know I'm going to find it in Chicago...

It doesn't matter what it is.

...What matters is the feeling of finding

What matters is finding on lost days

...What matters as much is being found."

 

She reminds me that;

"When your consciousness is directed outward, mind and world arises. When it is directed inward, it realizes its own Source and returns home into the Unmanifested." Tolle

 

First Lady I saw you on tv with millions and millions of smiling faces exercising on the greenest pastures heaven will testify about eternally. You were all so happy and giddy with joy! Ha ha ha! So contagious! I Love it!

 

I read that;

 

"First Lady/Lawyer ⁠Michelle LaVaughn Robinson Obama is a South Side of Chicago–born, Princeton and Harvard-educated lawyer, associate dean and public servant. But the first thing she'll tell you is that she’s the mom to two girls, Malia and Sasha. As President Barack Obama’s First Lady, Michelle Obama has been praised for her poise, intellect, and style. Her first official initiative is Let's Move! Which seeks to tackle the epidemic of childhood obesity."

In my family no one treasured education more than my grandfather. He and my teachers would listen to me tirelessly as I taught other kids and my cousins. He educated all his children, pleading with those who dropped out to go back to school so that they could have a better future.

Your style of dress is gracefully

Your confidence sparkles

And you share all of you so benevolently!

"even' Jesus of Nazareth, how God anointed him with the Holy Spirit and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him." Scripture

 

When you appear heaven smiles

Flowers blossom

Violets, reds, yellows, greens and

Orange spring up before mankind

Its the finest show humanity lives to experience for it is written;

"Not even King Solomon in all his splendor was as beautiful as one of these."

Your PRESENCE

radiates with beams of love and light

You give your all

Your enthusiasm and energy, blissful

Feels so good to my soul

Your beauty, splendid

Your kindness genuine, warm

One glorifies God when touched by such beauty of spirit and soul

 

When you speak something beyond words resonates

Its like pure magic

A symphony of angels

A song written by King David

Raw with passion

Full of wisdom

Sparkling with crystal clarity

You remind me of your grandfather whom the writer writes about so eloquently.

 

She says;

"Even in the smallest of places, there are people who are destined for greatness. Their feet seem poised to carry them on grand adventures;

Their minds seem drawn to greater intellectual pursuits.

In the 1920's, in the tiny town of Georgetown, South Carolina, most white citizens would have scoffed at the notion that a black person of this caliber could be living and walking among them. After all, how many African Americans had college degrees?

How many had run big businesses or plantations or had become powerful political leaders? Black men could only climb so far in society. African Americans, who worked in the sawmills or sharecropped on the farms, would have nodded knowingly.

Whites have systematically blocked all traditional avenues to success, but that did not mean there wasn't a man who could carry the hopes of his family and community, even if he had to leave home to do so. George town had such a man. He had sawdust on his hands,

But something akin to angel dust glittered whenever he spoke. Once they met him, people rarely forgot him. There was just something about Fraser Robinson Jr.

His parents welcomed him into the world on a summer day in 1912, the year that Theodore Rooseveld announced he was running for president again. Fraser was their first child, born on August 24.

He was named after his father, who would become a well -known entrepreneur and property owner in town and would harbor high expectations for his boy.

Fraser, the grandson of slaves, did not disappoint.

He recited poetry, joined the debating team at school and sang his Sunday praises to Jesus with a fine, reverbarating tenor...

And he quickly attracted the attention of his elders in school and church, who viewed him as a gifted thinker and a potential leader."

 

Is there any place where rape doesn't occur?

Like Maya Angelou who healed scars of abuse endured by women globally

The angel who celebrated the female sex

The physical beauty and intellect

With such softness and tenderness

You, the President, Vice President Biden, Beyonce, Jenifer Lopez, Babalwa and many others come with this special healing and empowering energy field.

Your tribute to Ma Angelou touched me deeply.

Profound!

Genuine!

Honest!

You are Our Queen!

Marianne Williamson says;

"A queen is wise. She has earned her serenity, not having had it bestowed on her but having passed her tests. She has suffered and grown more beautiful because of it. She has proved she can hold her kingdom together. She has become its vision. She cares deeply about something bigger than herself. She rules with authentic power."

 

You cause my heart to sing melodies only known to lovers,

friends, soul mates and spiritual partners in this glorious flow of all that is.

 

I read that the President, your handsome husband(gleee glee glee) says you are;

"The most quintessential American woman I know."

 

And you once said;

 

"I knew [Barack] was a special person. And it had nothing to do with his education. It had nothing to do with his potential. And I say this to young women: Don’t check off””there are a lot of women who have the boxes. Did he go to the right school? What is his income?”It was none of that. It was how he felt about his mother; the love that he felt for his mother; his relationship to women; his work ethic … he wasn’t impressed with himself.   And he was funny. And we joked a lot. And he loved his little sister … he was a community organizer. I really respected that."

 

I treasure his love and golden heart for humanity at large.

 

He says;

"The strongest democracies flourish from frequent and lively debate, but they endure when people of every background and belief find a way to set aside smaller differences in service of a greater purpose."

 

I read that;

 

"Her family is of African-American heritage, descendants of Africans and Europeans of the colonial era and antebellum eras. Michelle Obama's family history traces from colonists and slavery in the South to Reconstruction to the Great Migration to northern cities, in her family's case, Cleveland and Chicago. Each of her four grandparents was multiracial. Some of Michelle's relatives still reside in South Carolina. Extended family from her mother's Shields ancestors also reside in Georgia and throughout the South."

The spirit has eyes

The spirit has vision

The spirit speaks

An entity of wisdom and unity

An entity that is at peace with life

Where all comes together excellently well

Seamless Like air

Which has no beginning no end

For any sort of separation is unreal

Here I see one who

Mirrors this truth perfectly

One feels it in her graceful ways

Her speech

Her walk

Simply one of my favorite super models

Her dance

The warmth of her embrace

Her pleasant ways

Even when she agrees to disagree

She's perfectly well and lovable

Even when she's bold and firm

She's lovable

One can choose to be anything in this world, but being a mom is one of the most sacred, a calling.

Some mothers are special when it comes to nurturing and loving their families

You are one of the greatest

Mom-in-chief

My granny's prayer for you.

"I speak from presence. Although every word that I use has a history...and comes from the past, as all language does, the words that I speak to you now are carriers of the high-energy frequency of presence, quite apart from the meaning they convey as words." Tolle

 

May God bless you and your family, always.

We salute you all for enriching our world!
