Forcing A Creative Environment

Glitch4reup.gif

If you’ve been following along here or Instagram, you are aware of my Photos From The Matrix project. For the past six months I’ve been photographing myself in grocery stores and other places of business to assist me in elaborating on the idea of seperation from nature, immersion in the artificial and the importance we put on our digital selves. I think some of you just thought I enjoyed standing motionless in grocery stores!

These self-portraits allow me to create a glitch in the system. It is how I can pop a bubble of illusion simply by blending into it instead of imagining that I am separate from it. It’s like a sudden penetrating heat that cracks ice or pops a kernel of corn and turns it into something soft and fluffy. It’s about seeing patterns and creating new ones.

I find myself expressing these things because this is how I feel, this is what I see and this is the discomfort I experience when I am increasingly encroached upon by the unnatural. If there is a takeaway to all of this it’s this, If I can see and feel something that is corroding my sensibilities, obscuring my individual light of creativity, and discouraging personal growth–then everyone can. If you think you can’t you have to ask yourself why?

This is one way that I have taken a personal stand against certain forces and systems that I do not believe in or that I don’t want to take part in. It has helped to keep me thinking as an individual and to live life in a way where I am able to give back honestly and of myself. It reminds me of what matters, what’s good for me and how we need to make an effort to create things of beauty and to reject what makes us less than what we are.

How do YOU push back against a system that would rather suppress your individual voice and creativity? Getting to the core of our creative being is not always easy. My book Toxic Rainbows explains how I did it and offers a pathwork that opens the doors of possibility to anyone ready to do the work involved.

Creative Self Expression Saved My Life

EXP01
I recently retitled my blog to Saved By Self Expression because I believe that our unique creative expression is the answer to many of our perceived problems.

Everything I write here is tied to our thinking, molding, influences and whether or not the ideas that we express as our own, actually are our authentic beliefs. This is linked directly to our emotions which leads to the question of, “Am I responding emotionally based on my own reasoning and experience, or am I responding to someone elses’s?”

EXP02

Let’s forget about all of our ‘problems’, the ‘injustices”, feelings of ‘victimhood’, etc. Notice I put those words in quotes, that’s because these are what we choose to focus on and thus we define ourselves as the things we so despise. Let’s not do that.

In my book Toxic Rainbows, I cover a lot of  ground relating to influences and how ideas are impressed upon us without being fully cognizant that we are being indoctrinated and conditioned to thoughts and beliefs that are not really ours. Suddenly we find ourselves part of a group experience where we repeat the thoughts and emotional pleas of others and express them as our own, in the process we are snuffing out the light of creativity that is within us.

EXP03

Older readers and the unplugged can remember the active creativity of our young minds and time spent in imaginative thought, but perhaps younger people of today have been brought up to immerse themselves in a digital world where their heads are bent down to look at a screen on a handheld device, and sadly, those practices are doing little to enhance their creative abilities, I would go so far as to say their creativity is being stunted. It’s time to unplug, put down the ‘Smart’ devices and resist the temptation to download yet another app to add to the scores of digital distraction you may already be in possession of.

The overwhelming complaint about embracing a life of creativity and imagination is that people often don’t know what to do with themselves or they claim boredom.  Access to our inner light and creative core is possible, but we need to let go of the influences, condtioning and belief systems that have created self-doubt and feelings that what YOU have to offer isn’t as important as the desires of other people.

EXP04

Here’s the thing, once you are able to let go of the influence of others, whether in the form of overbearing relatives, emotional news anchors or virtue signaling co-workers, then you can begin to heal and create.

The most important thing for people to remember is that by following our own hearts, feeling from our core and deciding for ourselves what truth  is, it  is easy to see that we’ve never turned our backs on anyone.  What we’ve done is allowed ourselves to reach a place where we can actually give of ourselves which is much more powerful and rewarding than being a single voice in a mob-think position….you will actually be heard and your special gift can be shared and enjoyed by the rest of the world.

EXP05

Takeaway: Examine the things in your life where you find yourself giving, but not are not getting anything in return. Does where you put your energy leave you depleted, angry or repeating the thoughts and feelings of others? Think about what you can do that will allow you the time and  peace of mind to do some serious self-reflection.  Once you reach that point, you can then focus on your true self and your creative gifts that everyone can benefit from.

If you have any questions, feel free to contact me directly or leave a comment. Please follow along as I reveal  more truths, how to ‘let go’, how to tap into your own creativity and even discovering what it is.

Suicidal Thoughts: Looking At Our Pain With Fresh Eyes

At the beginning of the year I made a prediction that I did not want to come true, but in the intervening months I saw one confirmation after the next that I was not off the mark. I predicted that there would be a major increase in suicides.

My prediction may have been partly intuitive and partly based on an awareness of a general decline in happiness and a compulsion for some to embrace low frequency behaviors and ideology. The combination of low karmic energy and repetitive programming of negativity could not end well, thus my prediction of suicide.

Today I was reminded of an acquaintance who killed himself last year. I thought of all that he had going for him and what he had to offer the world and it got me to thinking again of the many people who feel as if suicide is the answer to seemingly insurmountable problems.

In the past I have suffered from the darkest of depressions and I know the feelings attached to this type of pain.  I also know that what we keep at the forefront of our minds will express itself in our outward reality. Our pain does not have to be there.

I understand that people have different reasons for their thoughts and our experiences are radically different, but I felt compelled to do a reading that might shed some light on why some of us are thinking the way we are and what we can do to elevate ourselves from these thoughts.

If you have any questions about the reading below, please feel free to leave a question in the comment section.  If you are having suicidal thoughts, please contact someone qualified to talk with you more about it.

THE READING:

While I was shuffling the cards I got the impression that LOVE would be a major factor in why people harm themselves.  The cards did reveal elements of love and they are strongly present, but I was surprised to be shown that the predominant factor for self-harm revolve around the superficial.

There is a feeling associated with living that could be described as ‘half empty’ and leaning toward finding what doesn’t work as opposed to what is already working.

There is a certain amount of comparisons being made in what others have and accomplished and what is desired and unfulfilled in those currently struggling with happiness.

Happiness, success and legitimacy is gauged by the amount of ‘things’ and money one has to show for themselves.  There is almost a complete lack of thought behind these conclusions and emotions are being built up over things that have no shelf life or lasting significance.

There is an unwillingness to see the importance of mistakes and the work involved in reaching greater heights. Focus lingers on low energy attempts at success that lead to failure and increased focus on the successes of others which lead to feelings of unfairness.

Predominant thoughts surrounding lack permeate the reading.  The feelings of perceived fairness in life and the distribution of love and money appear to be dominant.

Takeaway:
Don’t be blinded by the glittering prizes of the mundane world that speak only of superficiality. They don’t last.

Embracing the superficial is turning your back on your authenticity, which in turn will not lead to love or happiness. It will attract inauthentic people and temporary friendships.

Difficult, sometimes painful work is necessary to succeed. Without acknowledging your mistakes as steps closer to your desires, you will always remain the Fool.

The Fool is unconcerned, not because he is an actual ‘fool’, but he moves through life willing to learn from the pitfalls he encounters. He approaches life with positivity.  If he doesn’t learn valuable lessons put before him, the second time around he may actually step off the edge of the cliff–willingly or because he just never paid attention.

Intuitive Counseling – Spiritual Guidance and Assistance Is Yours.

spiritualGuidanceTarotAs a claircognitive individual and practitioner of the ancient art of tarot, I believe I have been called on by a higher power to offer guidance and to assist those in need through the cards and use of my intuitive ability.

As an Intuitive Counselor, my personal intention is to awaken something dormant within you, to reignite a spark and to shine light on the dark corners of your life that are in need of illumination. The cards are a tool that assist in answering questions and creating awareness within the querent and the results are undeniable.

I am a lifelong intuitive and have been working very successfully with tarot cards for over three years. I feel there is so much unnecessary pain and suffering in the world that I am here to tell you that there is good news and there are ways to eradicate lingering pain!

I predominantly work with clients in obtaining answers pertaining to relationships, work and finances, but my overarching aim as an intuitive reader and guide is to offer more.  My readings are thorough and go beyond ‘yes’ or ‘no’ answers. I will see connections to problems, solutions and roadblocks you may not be aware of.  It is my intention to keep you moving in a forward and awakened state–to empower you.

The tarot cards always give us the answers we need to hear, whether overtly positive or not. I will not candy coat a reading. If I am told to convey difficult information, there is a reason you need to hear it and it’s not my place to judge or always understand why. It’s my job to discern the meaning and to convey it to you in order to assist you in making thoughtful life decisions.

THE DECK:

Some readers offer countless options of card decks which is great, but I limit your choices in order to give you a more complete and meaningful reading. I have studied the Aleister Crowley Thoth and the classic Marseille decks, but have a much greater connection to the Rider-Waite deck.  I have spent more time with these incredibly symbolic cards and understand deeper meanings associated with them and am highly intuitive with this deck, so this is the one I use in my readings. I also offer readings with the amazing Oliver Hibbert deck which is a super stylized modern version of the Rider-Waite if you are interested in a more psychedelic rendering of the iconic images associated with the Rider-Waite, that is an option.

decks

THE READING:

Each reading will be in direct response to your query. There will always be takeaways to contemplate on and ideas to learn from.

The symbolism and placement of the cards is supremely important and my readings will always include thoughtful analysis and meditation on these things as well as factoring in reversals (reversed cards).

For your reading I will do a 10-Card Celtic Cross spread which will give information on where you are, where you’ve been and where you’re going in relation to your query.

A completed reading will be sent within 24 hours, usually much less or within the hour of the time the reading was done.

I will send your detailed reading and a PHOTO of your card spread.  Phone readings are also possible, but tend to be more lengthy and more expensive.  Your email reading is very thorough and includes TWO response emails in which to answer further questions and to clarify anything.

Before the reading, I will need to discuss briefly with you by email your general concern or the guidance you would like to receive. The cards will do the rest.  Payment for readings are done through PayPal and are a $15 donation which is representative of my time and energy.

Make An Appointment. 
Contact me at the link above to make an appointment or if you have any questions.

Always With The Best of Intentions.
