How (& Why) To Love Cancer, Extra Weight, and Maybe Even Donald Trump

A fellow creator said something today that I absolutely loved for its paradoxical thinking: “The cancer saved me.”

She was quoting Anita Moorjani’s story about how her experience with cancer woke her up to her true self and inspired her to live authentically.

What a gift, right? And from cancer!

That’s a powerful vibrational shift, to go from fearing/hating something to appreciating it.

Reminds me of how I’ve said that the extra weight I carried taught me unconditional love for self. (Those pounds just refused to go until I learned how to love them. And then they said, ok, our work here is done.)

Dropping that kind of resistance opens us up to the good things that we were closed off to with our old way of thinking.

Lisa Hayes shared another example of how to make a big vibrational leap when she wrote about her current take on American politics. (Which, as some of you may know, the US presidential election scene hasn’t been all love and light lately.)

Here it is in her words:

Lisa Hayes, The Love WhispererFirst of all, if you’re a Trump-loving Republican, forgive me in advance and read this anyway.

Anyone who knows me doesn’t have to try very hard to figure out how I feel about Donald Trump. I’ll just say I have strong feelings and they aren’t positive. Which is why when I realized I’m secretly rooting for him to win the Republican nomination no one was more surprised than me.

You might be wondering why, and the answer is simple.

If Donald Trump wins the Republican nomination, one of two things will happen. Our next President will either be a woman or a Socialist, and I’m fine with either outcome. Yes, I have a preference about those two possibilities, but at the end of the day, I’m good either way. (Please don’t email me to tell me why you hate Hillary or Bernie. Let me keep my zen on this one.)

Donald Trump guarantees that one way or the other we’re about to make history.

I’ve spent a lot of time and energy trying to figure out how to manage my vibration around The Donald. My genius partner pointed out to me a couple of weeks ago that if we’re not all careful we’ll get a Trump Presidency the same way we got a Bush Presidency, by focusing so intently on what we don’t want.

And I know this, but I was still struggling.

Then I sat down one afternoon and devoted a couple of hours to doing the math. I’ve been paid to do precinct by precinct statistical analysis in presidential races for candidates before. This isn’t exactly foreign to me. So, rather than just staying in the stream of seventh-seal-of-hell-level freakout, I got out my district voting record data charts and did the analysis.

Here’s what I found. The Donald can’t win the general. There is no path to victory for him. I’m not alone in that analysis. Most people whose numbers I historically respect agree.


Suddenly I’m not resisting him at all. I still loathe what he stands for, but I’m secretly pulling for him. When I see him on TV or online, I’m reminded of the saying about how Southern people don’t hide their crazy people. (They parade it on the front porch and give it a sweet tea.) When I see his face, I say to myself, “Bless your poor little heart” and move on.

I figured out how to befriend one of my biggest vibration dingers.

You can, too. Make a list of your top five vibration dingers. Then take the bottom two on that list, and find a way to spin the story so you can befriend the very thing that’s been bugging the crap out of you. After you’ve successfully cleared up the easier ones, work your way up the list.

Make it a game. Enlist help if you need it. You’ll be amazed how much energy you will free up.

Jeannette here again.Β Whether your vibrational bumps in the road happen to be political, environmental, professional, financial, or are showing up in your relationships – or wherever they might be, use the inspiration from Anita and Lisa to find a newΒ take on what you’ve been resisting.

If they can make friends with cancer and Trump, I believe anything is possible for us, too. πŸ™‚

    I love that post, I feel like it completely changed my way of thinking. The best part about this post is that I have realised that I have been thinking like this for a long time but not once did I think like this about people who are world famous.

  • Lindsay says:

    I feel like Trump is actually bringing a lot of people together. I live in Chicago and got a little emotional when the protesters shut his rally down…(Well he decided not to do the rally due to all of the protesters.) People of all different races, religions, ethnic backgrounds and political views were coming together to protest. My in laws are immigrants and have never voted before but they’ve been talking to me about voting this year, because they don’t want Trump to win. Our political discussions have brought us closer though we’re from completely different cultures and there’s a bit of a language barrier between us. With every crazy statement Trump makes, it seems like it brings more people together in unison against him. It’s kind of a beautiful thing…Sometimes I almost think he’s doing it on purpose. haha!

  • Mitch says:

    Checking back in to report some good results! I spent a few minutes playing with the good feeling thoughts about my Democrat friends getting along with each other better, and then I saw two posts on Facebook urging cooperation among Democrats! It’s already working!
    Dang, man, this really is where are power is. Not in arguing and pointing fingers and trying to be right. Just feeling better. I already freaking know this, but I clearly needed the reminder. Thanks, everyone!

  • I like to believe that Trump is punking us. That if/when he gets the nomination, he’ll come out and say, “Ha! I was making all that up – all to point out the negative thoughts/beliefs of so many Americans.”
    In other words, he’s just bored and enjoying playing what comes down to a massive prank on the election. Fingers crossed.

  • Namaste says:

    If the Law of Attraction holds true, Trump is going to win, here’s why…
    I have 1161 friends on Facebook (over 300 are LOA coaches, another 600 are LOA’ers and the rest are self-development types). Every single day, I pass by a high number of anti-Trump posts/comments in my newsfeed. Next, I notice 2 or 3 pro-Bernie posts. And to date, I’ve only seen 2 posts regarding Hillary and surprisingly they were both Marianne Willamson quotes that labeled Hillary negatively.
    You would think that out of any group of people, the people on my Facebook page would NOT be focusing so much on what they do not want. Yet, every single day, the slew of don’t want posts/comments are there. What I’m super curious to see is how this plays out come election time. Anyone reading this knows that what we focus on consistently, whether we want it or not, is what shows up in our life experience. If the Law of Attraction holds true, and all the people who don’t want Trump keeping focusing on how much they don’t want him, no matter what the statistics say, their focus is headed straight for the White House and will likely get a full 8 years just like Bush did.
    Would you like some help on how to stop focusing on what you don’t want? I realized years ago, that when a Democratic candidate won, I liked some decisions and didn’t like others. I also noticed the same thing when a Republican candidate won. I’ve come to view them as ying and yang. Now I simply focus on what I like ABOUT BOTH CANDIDATES (even though this can be really challenging sometimes) and that way I win, no matter who wins =)

    • K garner says:

      I get lots of pro Bernie posts & consider Hilary posts than anti Trump posts. I’ve got lots of Yoga teacher friends & teacher friends. And I get lots of pet adoption, travel photos, artwork, mom jokes (and teacher jokes)–a very good balance. You can remove things you don’t want to see. If you don’t spread those thoughts it’ll help them go away…

      • Namaste says:

        K Garner,
        Thanks for sharing that =) I’m glad to hear that my FB newsfeed doesn’t represent a general snapshot of American consciousness as a whole because it sure seems like it does. It seems like everywhere I turn, I keep running into anti-Trump stuff. Just this morning, I was in a store and overheard some employees talking about a new song that’s getting airplay on the radio titled F%$K Trump. They were talking about how much they loved it and I was thinking, “You better because you’ve got 8 more years to enjoy stuff like that coming right up.” I’ll have to take a look at why I’m attracting this because I don’t have any ill feelings towards Trump at all. I know that Trump will make a great president if he wins, just like I know that Hillary or Bernie will make great presidents too. I wasn’t kidding about what I said above, I’ve found things that I like about each person and that’s what I focus on.
        Again thanks for commenting because I’m really going to look at what’s going on with my point of attraction,

    • Elle says:

      Dear Namaste,
      Yes, I do the same thing! And you are right! People should just chill. This has become very heated and emotional. It would be best to stop focusing on it, go neutral and just love life in general. If everyone did this, I would live to see how things play out!

      • Namaste says:

        I think where politics gets people tripped up (where it had me tripped up for years) is they forget that everyone’s vibration determines the reality they experience. It doesn’t matter who gets into office or what decisions they make. All that matters is your own personal alignment to the things you want. For example, if Trump gets in and limits immigration, the people who are aligned with coming to the US will still get in. I use to be so worried about the decisions the future person in office would make and the impact those decisions would have on subjects I cared about. Thanks to Abraham’s teachings and me proving to myself that they’re speaking truth, I realized that my own alignment is the only thing I need to spend time thinking about.
        And I love your point about going neutral and enjoying life. I bet that within our lifetimes, advice like yours goes from leading edge concepts and weaves itself into mainstream understanding =)

        • Elle says:

          All true, Namaste, very well put! A needed reminder.
          It is just that, with bad feelings, there is a seduction going on of sorts. I cannot explain it in words, you know what I mean. Although we are the light, that negativity is seductive when not focused on the light, and one gets sucked in and rendered powerless until one notices and gets on the light side again. Oh man, so being in neutral is actually a good way to go. Prevention of being sucked in, that is what I am working on, as I waste a lot of time and energy dealing with that.

  • Carolyn says:

    Reading all your comments here I continue to ask myself .. .. If so many Americans are not for Trump as President… Who the heck keeps voting for him?? Its mind boggling…

    • Elle says:

      I hear you, yet LOA is at work, because he is just going with the flow, he doesn’t care what anyone thinks, he really doesn’t, and, like I posted a few weeks ago, I imagine this was a decision made in the sauna when one of his cronies dared him to run and he was like, you know, maybe I will, so it’s all fun for him!

  • Anonymous says:

    Jeannette and Lisa… thank you for this post!
    Even to someone who tries not to be political, it’s hard not to let the presidential election get under my skin. I’ve been telling myself the same story… that if DT gets his party’s nomination, I’m “hopeful” our country won’t elect what he stands for.
    Now, after hearing that Lisa ran her numbers, I’m feeling much better than just “hope”!

  • Anonymous says:

    I finally accepted, and now appreciate the Donald when I thought that maybe now people will see the end result of being mean and vindictive.

  • Helen says:

    Thanks so much for the post its just what I needed. I have recently been finding it hard to love my debt. Any tips?

  • mark says:

    Trump is just a manifestation of a very large part of American consciousness. Win or lose, after the elections that consciousness will still be there, and with a loss it will grow more frustrated. That consciousness is a bundle of woundedness, paranoia, fear of change, and isolation tendencies. That is the real problem, and no one is working on that, and the bulk of the people generating it do not believe in LOA. But fear not, that is their problem, and not the problem of people creating their own reality. If you want to help them, give them love and compassion, not judgement and hate.

    • K garner says:

      That’s an excellent comment!
      Everything comes and goes. You can watch it without getting caught up in it.
      It certainly is entertaining and it’s like people watch all sorts of movies–horror, thrillers, comedies, love stories…another movie.
      (I do like the movie in which people like to share and believe we can all live well, with healthcare, adequate and healthy food, clean water and air, cozy, comfy shelter and free and/or affordable–and FUN education, peace, love and sanity– but that’s my preference, there is roomm for lots of movies.)
      Be in it-not of it and stay happy–we’re responsible for our own happiness.

    • Elle says:

      This is great, Mark, thank you. You pretty much described my parents and I did not really know how to handle them when they corner me with this stuff, although it all just bounces off me, as I am immune, they continue to live in fear, are paranoid and as you rightly state, do not believe in LOA. So, just gotta love them and shoe compassion and not sit there and argue because it goes in one ear and out the other.

  • Amy says:

    I had a similar epiphany a couple of weeks ago about The Donald. My thoughts are that his unexpected rise is going cause a much needed change in the political parties. Once I stopped fighting the knot in my stomach about it, I have been much more at peace.
    Now why can’t I do this when I think about my checkbook….

    • Jeannette says:

      And PEACE is our ticket to peace!! However we can get to feeling better, that’s how things get better. Such a good thing to remember – and practice. Kudos for that, Amy!
      And girlfriend, if you can do it on The Donald, I bet you can do it on anything. I have faith in you! πŸ™‚

  • Elle says:

    I needed this! Yup, it’s like hugging your gremlin and rubbing it’s belly. Though it exists, so to speak, to bug the crap out of you, you can turn it around, not let it bug you and it will change.

  • mark says:

    If you are worried about who is elected president, you are not taking full responsibility for creating your own world and you are giving up your power to a politician.
    Worry – Using your imagination to create what you dont want.

    • Jeannette says:

      Yes, I’ve been repeating Abe’s words about how whatever’s happening “out there” doesn’t have to be part of our experience if we don’t let it. And that’s all a matter of focus and feeling.

  • Janette says:

    OMGosh THANK YOU for this. I saw Lisa’s piece this morning and you beat me to it – I really REALLY wanted to share with everyone.
    As someone who lives in a world where US foreign policy has direct impact, but I don’t get to vote, watching the US election craziness unfold can definitely be a not-fun vibration for me.
    Lisa’s comments are SO soothing to that vibration!

    • Jeannette says:

      I have to say, hearing her take on it and believing there’s no way he actually leads the country, made it easier to find some positive aspects of him.
      And that’s what Esther would do, right? You know when she bumps into something negative and she names ten good things about it? I bet I could name ten good things about this guy and what he’s doing. Genuinely. And the freedom in that … woo hoo!!

  • Anonymous says:

    But Jeanette I can’t stand Bernie he is a commie!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am in Canada and I think oh no . He wants to take from the wealthy and he goes against all Abe teachings so I can’t figure out when LOA people like him? He wants to take take take from people who make money high taxes and aren’t the people who make wealthy vibrationally aligned??? So why is this a good thing.
    Sorry but I just go insane when I see people cheering a commie socialist.

      We each get to have it our way! If you don’t like how you’re having it, you could choose something else. That’s the cool thing about how we each get to be right, whatever we choose. πŸ™‚

  • Mitch says:

    This is great. I, too, have had a hard time feeling good about Trump, even though I know that feeling good has to do with me and not him. But jeez, the muggle world is so darn compelling lately, I keep getting sucked in! Well, enough of that. I can’t take feeling crappy anymore. I choose to feel good about the Donald. For *my* sake.
    Next vibrational dinger on my list is the squabbling within the Democratic party. Any thoughts on how to spin that one? πŸ˜€

    • Jeannette says:

      As I feel around for a thought that feels better, I get Abe’s words in my head that all politics is out of the vortex, and contrast is essential to expansion. (Step one is what launches it all!)
      So it’s all good. πŸ™‚

  • Jackie Gaston Taylor says:

    Every morning I write a 2 page thank you note to the Universe. It’s a list of thank you for…
    One of the things I say thanks for every morning is ‘leaders who have the best interest of the people, the country, and the world at heart.’ I try to remember this mantra something political comes across my FB feed. I’m not always as successful as I’d like to be but it helps.

    • Jeannette says:

      That’s a beautiful affirmation, Jackie! I’ve been reminding myself that I’m in charge of my world, and the politicians are irrelevant to what I experience, but I like your version even better. πŸ™‚

  • Gary Bodley says:

    What a great post. I have a vibrational issue with Trump as well. My thing is I can’t understand some of the people I know who think he’d be a good choice. Crazy really. And me, I know better than to fight or argue against what I don’t want. Lisa’s take on this is perfect. I know he can’t win, so why do I care if some people want to vote for him. Maybe they’re just into the spectacle and the itchiness of it all. I’m looking forward to an historical election and either Democrat will be very cool with me. So thanks for running Donald, you just wiped out anyone who could stand a chance against Hilary or Bernie!

    • Jeannette says:

      I have to admit, Gary, that one of my better-feeling-thoughts is that Donald might be a plant by angels/higher power for that very reason. lol
      Donald Trump as an instrument of higher power. I like that thought a lot. πŸ™‚
      And I love hearing from you, Gary! So nice to see your smile on this post. Thanks for that. πŸ™‚

      • Martha Magee :) says:

        Hi Jeannette!
        Donald Trump is an old soul. I know this because he’s been visiting me in dreamtime for decades. Yes.. the Donald and I have a spiritual connection. As such, I feel I know his soul, and it’s good. I also feel he was a powerful monarch in a former lifetime..a gilded one!
        I love Obama, was in Washington for his historic Inauguration and love Bernie. I know beyond the shadow of a doubt that Donald Trump is playing his role beautifully – doing his part for the good of the ego;union of the planet and, The Cosmos.
        I have no trouble saying I LOVE Donald Trump
        For all we know, he may be an undercover angel on assignment having a little fun getting everyone all riled up!
        Wake ’em up shake ’em up by any means necessary !!!
        Contrast being what it is as we know from Abraham, let’s just think of him as The Human Launching Pad!
        All is well. You are knowing what you are wanting??
        hee hee
