Demi Lovato and Lady Gaga--Healing Our Kids Together

Back in the 70's when I was growing up it was the norm to feel alone in a world that for whatever reason, could not or would not 'see' you.  As mommy catered to daddy, and daddy complained, children like me slipped away into deep abyss's within--in an attempt to escape the engulfing pain that occurred as a result of feeling invisible and thus unreal--and thus unworthy by the parents children like me adored.

Back in the 70's we ugly ducklings had only six television channels to choose from, all of which did little more than reinforce an insecure child's ideas of unworthiness.  Marica Brady was blonde, had straight white teeth, was popular, and her parents worshipped her.  Ugh! There was no Dr. Phil, Oprah, or Ellen we could write to, to tell our stories to.  There was no Glee television show that encouraged uniqueness and diversity.  Back in the day you were labeled either good or bad, right or wrong.  If you conformed you were good.  If you acted up, you were bad and forever stained.

Today this 47 yr old bestselling author, self help junkie, and lover of all that is pure, unique and holy, is thrilled, over the moon, and tickled pink that my children, your children, and children of this world everywhere have role models like Demi Lovato and Lady Gaga to look up to.  I can feel the momentum of mass consciousness shifting as the ignorant of old pass on, and the enlightened and aware are born.

I feel much empathy however, for Demi Lovato and Lady Gaga, as their roads have not been as smooth as they should have been.  To struggle with ones sense of self--and to feel as if ones mind is disjoined from its source which is being separated by the war that is happening within that has begun on the outside, and is reflected by what one sees in a mirror--is hell.

I am forever grateful for their candid humanness and will forever support either through my writing, or through spirit my gratitude and appreciation for such enlightened and aware ambassadors of the love of Self.

For all you do, will do, are, were and always will be Demi and Lady Gaga--I thank you...
