BETHLEHEM, Pa., Jan. 5, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Many Americans are deeply depressed about the election of President Donald J. Trump, and worried about the country's future. Though this reaction is quite understandable, what they may not realize, however, is that their own depression and worries are likely to make the situation even worse for the U.S. and themselves. So says Devadas Chelvam, author of From Fear to Limitless Love: Your Path to Finding Self-Worth, Harmony and Bliss. "Unfortunately depression and worry are energy spent to create exactly what is feared. It is rather a risky attitude to adopt at this juncture," he says.
To bring about a positive change for ourselves and the country, Chelvam asserts that individuals must make the choice to be happy right now. The way to do so, he suggests, is to find a way to love Trump and the members of his administration unconditionally, to visualize Americans being reconciled and the country as peaceful and prosperous. He says having enough people repeating loving, positive affirmations with genuine feeling could make a difference. For example, he suggests repeating many times during the day: I love you, President Trump; Americans are united and peaceful. We are all happy and prosperous.

"Such a task may seem impossible or too hard for many," admits the man who voted for Hillary Clinton. "Actually I myself found it difficult at the start. It becomes easy if we understand the current situation and have the courage to respond creatively. Then we can choose to be happy, peaceful and unconditionally loving. Otherwise, we will bring about what we fear, a continued polarization which would be ominous for America and for the whole world."
