Barack Obama’s Role in the U.S.
(Excerpt from the Featured Topic Channeling for November 5- 11)
Each week, we feature a newly channeled topic based upon the questions YOU submit. We ask the Keepers your questions, and post selected excerpts from the answers here.
What is Barack Obama’s karmic role in leading the U.S. at this time?
Barack Obama’s karmic contract is to be a leader for the world, not just a leader for the U.S. His legal contract is to lead the U.S, but his karmic contract is to be a leader for the world. His karmic contract is to be a catalyst for enlightening change in the world. A catalyst is a substance or an object that facilitates change. It does not make the change occur – instead, it initiates and enhances a process and that is precisely what his role is to be. In fact, his contract to be a catalyst for a certain process has already been accomplished. His initial contract was fulfilled during and just after his election campaign. The changes he was meant to facilitate occurred in the hearts and minds of people across the world.
With his initial karmic contract fulfilled, he is now working to support the changes that are only possible if they are created and upheld by the citizens of the world. A catalyst is a substance that causes or accelerates a chemical reaction, or a person that inspires an event or change to take place. A catalyst can signal a process to begin and it can enhance or speed up a process that is already underway. Barack Obama is doing both. He helped initiate a process and he is also helping to enhance or make more efficient a process that is already under way. The process is human empowerment, which is both a result of and the driving force for healing of the human family.
Barack Obama is not the only catalyst and he is not the only leader involved in this work. There are many other world leaders, both official and non-official, who do this work. The catalyst that he provides is unique. This role can be seen most clearly in what was fulfilled during his election campaign, where most of his karmic contract was fulfilled. The speeches that he gave and the particular way that he ran his campaign catalyzed a process inside millions of people across the world. The messages and actions that took place during his campaign initiated and activated a process within millions of individuals, and a process across many societies, by which human beings are becoming empowered enough to dismantle oppressive forces and create more light and love, effectually making the world a better place. (As you might imagine, this is the dramatically short version.)
In a sense, Barack Obama’s karmic contract was to be a catalyst for hope. Hope only works in the individuals who choose to carry it or act on it. The effects of his catalytic process were most outwardly apparent in the ways that people were activated to vote or to make changes in their communities. But the greatest actual effects occurred within people’s minds and hearts. The massive shift toward hope and empowerment cannot be measured but rest assured, the world is a more peaceful place and more people have moved forward in enlightenment based on the role he has played. Now, the work and the way forward are yours to determine.
Once Barack Obama entered the presidency, his role as a catalyst has been somewhat diminished because people have a tendency to cease their own empowerment when they turn to a powerful leader. This occurs because people, through the dynamics of oppression, have learned to turn their own authority over to their leaders. People in nearly every culture on the planet have learned to wait for their leaders to take decisive action, and in waiting each individual forfeits their own power to affect change.
Citizens in the U.S. have exhibited a tendency to imagine that once Barack Obama was in an official leadership position that he would take care of things. When you wait for your leaders to instruct you, or you sit back and blame others for their missteps, you lose track of your own power, and it becomes easy to lose faith in your own ability to create positive change in the world around you.
Remember that all of you have been oppressed in one way or another. It is not your fault that you have been oppressed, but it is your responsibility to actively choose to reassign your personal authority to yourself, to re-determine and revitalize yourselves to make positive changes in the world around you. This reclaiming of your personal power, and it’s collective potential, ultimately is the process that Barack Obama was meant to catalyze. His calling is to inspire all the citizens in the world into action. He will not make the world a better place through his actions; instead, he inspires all of you to make the world a better place.
As long as each of you is taking responsibility and doing what you can to improve the world within your sphere of influence, then you are using him positively as a catalyst. If people do not use his leadership role to further inspire and empower themselves into action, then the usefulness of his role will expire. It will no longer be useful for him to be in the role of a world leader officially if the role of catalyst is not being fulfilled. It is vitally important that all of you continue to remember that he is not here to make change, he is here to inspire you to make change. That is the role he came here to perform, that is the karmic contract that he signed up for. Most of this has been accomplished on his end of the contract. Of course as a president he has legal and societal contracts to fulfill, but outcome of his karmic contract now depends upon you.
