Women’s Energy Changes the World’s Energy

Many of us prayed for civility and calm during the transfer of Presidential Power. Symbolically with the exception of a disruption by protest of a small group of anarchists, January 20, 2017 inauguration went on as planned.

As we know, on January 21, 2017,  the ‘Women of the United States” spoke out in multiple locations with voices joined to address the importance of “Human Issues.” Women around the world joined in protest with the U.S. Women.  History reveals when women gather in mass -they are birthing change. Committed women  demonstrate when the world  is skewed. Mothers, daughters, grandmothers, aunts, husbands, sons, walk in unity, and shout ‘no more.’ It is wise for all to listen to those who represent the life of force of the earth. Women’s energy changes the  world’s energy.

Utah, one of the most Conservative States in the Union, conducted seven Women’s Marches. They were joined by the men who love women.  Some of the Utah marches endured blizzard conditiona, icy roads, and cold temperatures to join in solidarity with the women of the world.

In fact, we have a state legislature that meets for 45 days. Utah Women, on January 23, 2017, broke the record for the largest demonstration in the history of the state.  More than 6,000 women and those who care about ‘human rights’  marched to the capital on its first day session.

What is driving these women? You tell me. I can’t speak for the millions of my ‘sisters’ who recognize “Human Rights and Needs” are not being addressed. It is time for us to look around and see if you are pleased by your local and Congressional representation.

BE BOLD. RUN FOR OFFICE. You don’t have to have to jump into a big political office. Try running for school board or county board, etc.

Americans, we can make a difference. Start by communicating with the individuals placed in office to represent you.
