Chapter 1 – Premonition

The coming of Trump is not a random coincidence that just happened by itself, but like any other major historical events, it has multi-facet historical and social-political causes. Many experts who study history and politics have written articles and books extensively on this topic, and many more books were written about Trump and this time. I am not here to add more comments on those materials, as I mentioned previously, I am not such an expert, neither have I studied American history, social or political sciences. 

But what I am bringing here are my personal experiences, what I have gone through along with others who are on the spiritual path and who may understand the significance of the Trump’s Era from a very different perspective.

In particular, I’d like to share a piece of my personal account a few years back before Trump first appeared on the national stage. The time was related to 2012. Those of you who are familiar with the new age teachings probably remember the kind of excitements, activities, and various schools of thoughts on the topic of 2012. It was about the “End of the World” or “A New Beginning”, which emerged at that time and was often looked upon as a new age hype with no scientific basis.

As I was exploring the spiritual path back then, I have come across these topics in various forms and occasions, including Eastern and Western religions, Native American traditions, and scientific studies on natural habitats and environment. Among all these diverse sources, there seemed to something coherent like a consensus emerging. The observation was that our society was entering a special period of time that would be marked by major shifts and changes on a large scale, both in the natural environment as well in our mental field and in society as a result. Exactly what these changes are, some people may already have seen a glimpse, yet many others were not aware. 

Back in 2011, I was working as a holistic health consultant in a west Houston wellness center. It was situated in a typical office building in a business area, shared with other shops and offices. One morning in the summertime, as I walked into the office building, I saw a man wearing a strange neon yellow colored jacket walking around in the lobby area. His clothing suggested that he was working either as a security officer or maintenance worker. I walked past him and didn’t pay much attention.

After some time, the front desk assistant in my office came to ask me that someone was at the door. I walked to the front and saw the same person with the neon jacket, so I thought he came to do his regular maintenance work. Instead, I was surprised to hear that he was a volunteer with a local charity organization and was asking for support of a neighborhood community event. He brought a folder with him, which had the introduction to the organization and the event. The materials seemed to be genuine and legitimate so we exchanged a few sentences and I agreed to give him a small donation. He also took an interest in the work I did at that time, which was in holistic health and wellness. At the front desk, he flipped through the brochure we had in the office, and I mentioned to him a few services we offered.

After a couple more hours passed, the front desk called me that the same man was back again. This time he wanted to know more about our office and talk to me more about the services. I thought he may be interested in trying out so I agreed to meet him for the second time. 

We had a pleasant conversation and he listened attentively with a great deal of interest in my area of work. Towards the end, the man (“John” as a pseudonym) revealed to me that he was involved in a fatal traffic accident about half a year ago, and still had some health issues he was working through. He said he was glad to run into our office while visiting the area, and thought about stopping by again to learn more. 

I was surprised to hear about the fatal accident he went through, as he looked perfectly healthy and energetic, in fact, even more so than other regular people. John noticed my surprise and offered some more proof. It was quite shocking to say the least, what he revealed to me afterwards. 

He opened his folder from the back side, and showed me photos, police and medical reports about his accident. He had a head-on collision with another car driving at night, and was sent to ICU immediately afterwards. He lived in the hospital for more than a month, going through numerous surgeries to fix his body, until he could survive and come out of there alive. He showed me the hospital discharge notes, which quite interestingly, said something to the effect that John recovered beyond a normal process. Apparently the doctors didn’t expect him to make it through, and somehow he came back alive and even left the hospital in a few weeks. 

John then told me that he had extraordinary experiences during his ICU stay and during his recovery in the hospital. He was out of his body and drifted to “the other side” a number of times. There he met “doctors” in the other realm, who not only operated on him, but also “collaborated” with the doctors who worked in the hospital. While the medical doctors fixed his broken bones and organs, doctors on the other side helped by putting back the energetic grid inside his body. 

In addition to these operations, he also met a personal teacher who served as an advisor and helped him go through the healing process. The advisor also taught him about the health of the body, how it functions energetically, and how to recover from major physical and psychological trauma like what John went through. This was why he was able to recover rather quickly, and somehow came back from the brink of death. He said he was still having some trouble with his back and injured organs, and continued with the healing exercises taught by his teacher ever since. This was why he was interested to learn more about what I was doing in my work at that time.

In a scientific term, what John went through was essentially a Near Death Experience (NDE). To say that I was caught in a big surprise was an understatement, as not only NDE was the subject of my interest and study at that time, but also, I was precisely working in the same area of John has learnt in his NDE – how the body functions energetically and the secrets of health by maintaining the integrity of the body-mind-spirit.

But why did he put these materials on the back of his folder? Why did he show me these records? How did he end up in my office? My rational mind trained by many years of working in academic medicine could not grapple with what had just happened and had more questions than answers. 

Sensing my skepticism, John explained to me that he carried the folder almost like a Bible, to remind himself what he went through – how much he treasured every day of his life afterwards, and how much he wanted to help others who were going through difficult times. This was why he switched his job to work for the charity organization and social welfare. If he sensed his story may help others and if they are receptive to it, he would share his experiences. In that way, he was almost becoming a storyteller or a preacher of some kind.

Before meeting John, I was exploring the path of holistic health and spiritual healing while working in the wellness office. One of my favorite topics, and the exact same topic that had taken me out of academic medicine but opened the door to holistic health, was NDE. I studied the subject extensively and met quite a few people who had the experiences, and who for some reason came to my office and shared their life stories which they would not reveal with others. Back at that time, the research field of NDE had just started, which received more skepticism than acceptance. John’s experience was also quite representative among the people who had gone through NDE, in the way how NDE could bring a dramatic change to a person’s perspective, in both their physical and spiritual health.

Following his initial visit, we agreed to meet several times afterwards to discuss and exchange personal notes on what we have learnt from our individual experiences. It was very satisfying to share our common interest in healing work and our deeper connection on a spiritual level. 

In one of such meetings during the spring of 2012, we started to talk about what would happen in 2012 and changes that might be coming around the world, as this topic was of great interest to many practitioners in the holistic field. Again, to my surprise, he shared with me, that during one of the meetings he had with his advisor in his NDE, his teacher revealed to him something extraordinary that was about to happen in the near future. The essence of the message was the following.

“Humanity on the Earth is going through a major transition. The peak of the change will be marked by a war, a spiritual war to be exact. It is a war between the Truth and falseness, real and illusions. It is also a war between the new and old, a brighter future versus the dark past. There are two forces at play, one attempts to keep the old paradigm and power structure, the other wants to break away and start something new. This war will continue for years but will be officially started by the arrival of the “King of Chaos”, released from the Dark Side.

When he comes, half of the world would see him as a devil, while the other half worships him as a god.This is how the war will break out. 

But his coming is also to serve a high purpose: the old must die, so the new can rise. This is the order of the Universe. He is here to quicken the process and wake up the masses, though much of what he does will be on the destructive side.

Yet change will not happen without difficulties. It is like giving birth: the birth of a New Humankind. There will be a risk to the mother and struggle of the newborn. There is a chance that the birth may not succeed or survive…”

As John was reciting what his teacher was telling him, vivid imagery flashed through my mind like a movie opened up itself. Part of Earth would be burning in fire, like the fire of hell, while other parts flooded in heavy storms with dark clouds. Polarization and intense conflicts would be the characters of this special period of time.

This “King of Chaos” would arrive and stand up on stage, dressed in a robe like an old king, giving a sermon or speech of some kind. Half of the people would kneel down to worship him, and the other half fighting back. They would be consumed by intense emotions, with their hearts burned in anger and hatred, their minds overwhelmed and run chaotic.

At the same time, the “King of Chaos” would bring out all the negativities and darkside of the human soul, hideous yet hidden, covered by hypocrisy and pretense previously. They are like poisonous snakes that had been hiding underground, but now swirling out to be released in the open, so that people can see them and destroy them. As such, the rebirth of a New Humankind would arrive, shedding and shredding the dark Karma of the past, clearing the heavy debts that had burdened humanity for too long. 

The imagery was so intense that it left my eyes and head burning when it came through, as if a CD was being etched in my memory. It was also appalling and astonishing, as I could not comprehend the amount of information coming down, nor the degree of reality it was presenting itself. 

“A King of Chaos? Half of the world would see him as a devil, and the other half would see him as a god? How could this be possible?! This sounds ridiculou!” My skeptical rational mind had a hard time accepting what I had just seen and heard, which appeared more like a mythological movie or fairytale of some sort. In disbelief, I tried to digress the topic and went over other materials that were more relevant to us at that time. We never got a chance to revisit the subject afterwards.

Unfortunately, I lost contact with John and was not able to connect with him since then. As I could not fully comprehend the imagery and messages he brought to me, neither could I relate them to practical use, I decided to put them aside and let them sit somewhere in my subconsciousness like a book being put high on the shelf. 

At the same time, I searched many places and studied different schools of thoughts. Among a wide range of topics and diverse voices I have gathered and sifted through, from mainstream scientific studies to new age teachings, from religious lineages to indigenous sources, there was something emerging and coherent that I could sense. And the messages bore a familiarity with the imagery I saw during the session with the man in my office.

These messages all pointed out to a tsunami of changes and transformations that were coming to the horizon. Accompanying the changes, there would be major challenges, some of them may be brought by natural disasters, as well as shifts in our conscious mind, in our personal life and relationships, that many people would have to go through. These transformations are necessary, again, for us to see the hidden patterns in our mind, to shed the heavy karma of the past, and for something completely new to be born. Humanity is going through a rebirth, in a sense, individually and collectively. 

But what would this process entail and what changes may be coming? I wondered many times afterwards. As a result, I gathered and organized what I have learnt and received in a lengthy article on my website, hoping it would help more people go through this intense period of time that will be marked by what I called a “Polarity Shift” or a transition phase. For those of you who have little patience to go through this book, you are welcome to read through that article to get a glimpse of what it is about.

Chapter 2 – The Arrival of the King of Chaos

What happened next on the Election Night of 2016, and what followed that moment, everyone already knew. I had a burning desire, in fact, that night, to share with the world what I saw in 2011 when the man came to my office, what he has revealed, and what would happen as a result. There was a clear sense of urgency of writing up the material what I was seeing, yet I was unsure how people may perceive and react to it which could come across like a fairy tale.

But in the short period following that the election night of 2016, millions of people were swept and pulled into a dark place that could not even be described with words. It felt like something died inside the hearts of these Americans – the soul of the country just withdrew and withered. They were at a complete loss, with the hope destroyed and shattered. The sense of pain, hopelessness, depression, anger, all came afterwards, like the grief experienced after a loved one suddenly passed away.

Yet at the same time, there were also others who imbued themselves with ecstasy and outpouring of happiness over the arrival of the King. The degree of contrast and disparity, disconnect and animosity between the two sides was so shocking to see and it only grew over time since 2016.

The country was turned upside down, not only in political power houses, but on the streets and in the community. Immediately after the King’s inauguration, millions of women marched on the streets, in the historical moment worldwide, perhaps the largest march after the Civil Rights Movement in the U.S. Following that, there have been protests, marches, school shootings, hate crimes, hurricane floods, and forest fires. There were churches, temples, mosques, and synagogues that have been bombed and shot. There were immigrant families which were torn apart. There were trade wars. There were sudden risings and free falling of the stock markets. The list goes on.

Families started to fight inside. Husbands argued with wives. Children stopped talking to parents. Friends were no longer friends. Neighbors and co-workers could no longer sit next to each other. Groups drifted apart and gravitated to opposite sides. On social media, angry foul words were spilled everywhere yet received applauds. People have never been so polarized, so fearful, and so hateful to each other before. Yet all of these social phenomena were put out in the open in the most outlandish way.

The King of Chaos has landed here and proven his ability to separate and divide the people.

I have personally seen how each community has drifted apart and unable to understand and communicate with the other side, but was haunted by hatred and animosity. Alarmingly, this division and conflict happened not only AMONG different social groups, but WITHIN themselves as well. People are being split into right or left, red or blue, pro or against Trump, no matter if they are white, African American, Latino, Indian, Vietnamese, Chinese, or Filipino, or no matter which professional field they work. Even the Muslim community which was being put on the travel ban immediately after the 2016 election and has been frequently attacked afterwards, was divided within itself and argued about political views and alignment.

The spiritual community was of no exception to my surprise. I thought initially that people may have more insights into the matter and could unite with each other better. But only the opposite happened. I have several personal friends who have been connected in shared spiritual interest and practices. However, in the process, they chose to receive information from different sources and stay with different groups of people, which I believe was one of the major reasons why they drifted away. Some of them still refused to talk and treated me as their enemy. One of such friends was never active in politics and not even aware of what was going on in the nation before 2018. But somehow he got onto several websites of new age teachings and conspiracy-theory podcasts that have declared the arrival of the savior in this age. Soon afterwards, this friend became a newly convert and started to follow these channels religiously. The rest of the story is self explanatory.

It was not hard to reach the conclusion that no matter what happened in real life, for example, Trump’s repeated insults and inflammable statements, against his own people inside the Republican party, against women, against Latino DACA recipients and central American refugees, in the trade war against China, you will find people who would be loyal to him and blind to his wits and twits. The country was polarized to the degree that half of the people would see him as the savior and the other half see him as the Satan, exactly just like what I saw in 2011. It has become such an egregious social phenomenon that propelled many people to ponder again and again, why and how could this happen?!

At the same time, the King was sitting in the most powerful seat on this planet, grabbing the joystick of power with his fist. Whatever have been built and preserved in the Capitol Hill, in the nation, and in America’s history, became pieces of toys or fragile glassware, that can be thrown into the fire, shattered on the marble floor, to test the reaction and tolerance of the people: how loud can they scream and fight against each other?

Every moral standard and agreed creed that have bonded people together as a society have been thrown out in the open, tested and shatter, to see which side people are willing to stand up for, how much courage they can have to speak up. To avoid the conflict caused by the polarization, there is still a large silent majority, who choose to remain silent and another large group who remained to be unaware of that’s happening, and was occupied with their daily affairs.

Things happened faster than anyone could write or express. The King of Chaos managed to dominate the headline news and occupy the media’s attention span. There was hardly any moment of break in the mainstream media since the 2016 US Election, and it has been brought under frequent attacks as well. On the other hand, alternative news,

Days and months following the King’s arrival, news exploded on a daily basis that made Washington DC looked like a battle ground or a warehouse of ammunition that could catch a fire in any moment. Shock and awe! This was how the Iraq War was started, but now America is bombed with the Trump news and living under the shock and awe.

How would we characterize what the King of Chaos has brought to us? I would summarize in four words: separation, hatred, demonization, and destruction.

Separation of the people happened when every social group, including even a nuclear family is being split in terms of believes, views and choices. Division and hatred happen when each side cannot see the other views, and often see the other side being irrational and ridiculous. When separation and division became so large and irreversible or cannot be reconciled, polarization happens. It then can evolve into an ideological war with possible attacks and demonization of the opponents, which is happening right now in the country. Destruction follows when the two groups of people fight and attempt to destroy each other. In addition, any established rules and moral values are thrown out of the window and completely disregarded or destroyed. In such, these four elements are what have brought humanity into catastrophes in the past, which resulted in great losses of lives, destruction of the society, and deep trauma in our collective psyche.

Are we living in a war, a new kind of civil war, in the Trump Era? And is this war a continuation from the past or the karma we have to bear?
