What a tragic week here in our beautiful Island home of Australia. We have seen the best and the worst of humanity. After the terror of the Sydney siege, people banded together and showed solidarity, understanding, and compassion that brought tears to my eyes. Now, in the wake of this horrific and tragic event in Cairns with the death of 8 innocent children people have become all self-righteous and suddenly appoint themselves judge, jury and executioner. I have seen many posts calling for the death penalty to be reintroduced and the worst kind of punishment brought to bear on this woman.
As a light worker and healer, I have done clearings for people who were unaware that another entity had entered, and were dominating their energy field. This may be hard for many to understand, all I know is that is what I have experienced and witnessed.
A psychotic episode is something we cannot comprehend unless we have experienced it. And there can be no other reasonable explanation for an act as abhorrent as this than psychosis.
Introducing harsh punishment for these kinds of crimes is like giving people free access to all the alcohol they can consume and then telling them to make sure that when they are too drunk and incoherent to know what they’re doing, not to do anything stupid because they will be punished.
This woman was obviously not in her right mind. How could she be? Was she even consciously present whilst carrying out this horrendous act of violence? Was she having hallucinations? Under the influence of drugs either legal or illegal? Did she have schizophrenia? Was she bipolar? There are a thousand things we don’t know about this woman or what drove her to this.
The question we need to ask is how is the system failing people who enter a frame of mind where they are capable of committing such unimaginable acts of violence and atrocities against others. At some stage, there would have been a cry for help. Did it go unheeded? Was she ignored or dismissed? What has gone so horribly wrong in this woman’s life that she could become such a monster?
Mental illness is out of control in our society and this is what needs to be addressed. Governments are turning their backs because the problem is too big and too expensive to address, and nothing they’re doing is working. Traditional medicine is at a loss as to know how to address this problem.
The problem is that there is a war being waged on many levels – cosmically, energetically and physically. We all experience it in our minds on some level. It is the absence of complete peace and unconditional love. It is fear. And when this fear escalates beyond normal levels tolerable to our tiny human minds, the result can be catastrophic.
This woman, who is now labelled as one of the worst child murderers in our history, is obviously suffering unbelievable torture mentally as this is the only way anyone would be capable of committing such an act. Is punishment going to fix that? Is throwing her to the wolves or executing her going to help a problem that is rampant in our society?
We are so quick to be judge, jury and executioner without even knowing all the facts. All we see is the incomprehensible result of the struggle this woman has undergone.
This is a wake up call to everyone that there is something going on underneath the surface of our society that must be addressed and fast.
I am not, by any means, suggesting what she did is not vile and abhorrent beyond our imagination. What I am suggesting is that these kind of acts will continue to escalate if we do not start paying attention and treating this problem at it’s cause and trying to understand at the deepest level what is driving people in our society to not only kill themselves, but others as well.
