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.

Intolerance is Hot Right Now

signHYPOCRICYsign
There’s a person I know, someone who I’ve admired for years–creative, passionate about life, engaging, fun, a joy.  But then I realized that nearly every moment she shares on social media has been of outrage and venomous hatred. It’s gone so far that she has even called for the death of people she does not agree with.

I’ve made a point of staying away from the mind-controlling echo chamber of thee main culprit of social media conditioning, an entity whose name I won’t mention, but the ferocity and number of people who’ve been effected by the programming seeps through nonetheless.

It’s this reactionary behavior and single-minded focus of what troubles some of us that was an inspiration for writing my book Toxic Rainbows. I found myself asking myself, How can I help? What can I do? How can I reach someone without triggering them or being shouted over? Writing the book was no different than writing a letter to someone in the hopes that you could express all of your thoughts and feelings without getting  interrupted. Now our hope is that the letters we write are read!

signTolerance

There are factors at work that are creating a much more polarized atmosphere than we would be experiencing if things played out naturally, without influences hammering away at us. Polarity exists, it’s never not been part of the world in which we live. There are things that occur, beliefs that people have and even fashion or styles that is just ‘not you’. But when we give our focus to what it is we don’t want in our lives or what we don’t believe in, we are actually empowering what we push against.

If you hate facial hair, nose rings or red hats, chances are you see those things ALL THE TIME and bring them more into your experience than if you would have just put your attention elsewhere.

But our problems right now lie, a bit outside of our polar differences in belief. It’s in our UNDERSTANDING and how we came to believe what we do.  Our intolerance and inability to reason did not just happen overnight. It has been a long, slow development that has been inflicted upon us.  We need to understand ourselves, not what outside influences tell us about who we are because if we don’t watch out, we will suddenly be telling our friends that we wish they’d die.

If these ideas resonate, I encourage you to read my book, Toxic Rainbows. I also encourage dialogue and questions.

Is More Not Enough? What’s Missing? – Book Excerpt

My book, TOXIC RAINBOWS will release this Fall as an ebook.  Enjoy this excerpt.

RINGS

We are living in a time of relative abundance, excess and opportunity, yet we continue to feel deprived and left wanting for more.  What is it that’s missing? Can it be satisfied by shopping, having another child, redecorating?

This empty feeling and searching for substance is brilliantly depicted in Orson Welles’ classic film Citizen Kane and was more recently explored in Ridley Scott’s All The Money In The World.  We see in these film characters a desperation to possess an unnamable something.  Similarly, we sense a feeling of lack, but don’t know where it’s coming from or know what to fill it with.

We often falsely base success and privilege on material gains.  We wrongly assume that if someone is driving an expensive car and lives in the most posh part of town that he is happy and ‘has it all’. But what we will come to better understand and what you may already know or sense is that the ‘All’ can’t be bought, yet the ‘All’ that we desire and yearn for is not unobtainable.

Accessing the ‘All’ defies status, culture and race.  The ‘All’, the thing that brings clarity, vision, and empathy is the same thing that creates fulfillment and provides the missing piece of the puzzle we are all in search of.

Different cultures and religions both ancient and contemporary have referred to this force within us and it’s concepts may not be so far removed from our understanding as we might think.

Spirit Energy. Life Force. Soul Consciousness. Quintessence.  Intuition. Whatever you want to call it and however it’s been referred to throughout the ages, it is here to stay and it’s still just as powerful as it’s ever been.

Imagine having a key that has the potential to open any door imaginable.  A key that when used eliminates negative feelings and gives meaning to your life.  The spark of spirit energy within each of us is that key.

This book is a roadmap that will illustrate how paths taken and systems of belief can lead to success and happiness or abject failure.  I’ve been on both sides.

Follow my blog and Instagram for updates on the book release.

Tech Devices: Our Self-Imposed Slavery

ENSLAVE

Modern day slavery exists and our captors care nothing of our race, gender, social or economic background. They are unmoved and non-biased. This is something I think about quite a bit and it doesn’t seem like one day can go by when I feel the screws tightening.

DSC03574 (1)Today in came in the form of an article about St. Louis University installing surveillance devices, 2,300 of them, into every dorm room for this coming semester. The devices, are of course marketed as ‘assistance’ tools that answer questions about the campus. Just like everything that is bad for us, we accept it because they’re ‘cool’ or we’re programmed into believing we ‘need’ them and they’ll ‘protect’ us. Eventually we don’t even notice they’re there because we never said “No.”.

These devices, naturally, are supplied by Am_zon and are Al_xa-enabled Ec_o Dots.  They claim that ‘no personal data is stored’, but they’ve had problems with these devices storing and using the data for advertising purposes in the past. And didn’t we just recently watch as Mark Zuckerberg purgered himself in front of the Senate’s Commerce and Judiciary committees–or at the very least deny things he was fully aware of?

zuck-data

I don’t like to bring up these kind of things, but this is what is being put in place to destroy our souls and take us further from understanding our purpose. It atrophies our minds and gives us no reason to think for ourselves. This is the enslavement that so many of us accept as normal or choose to believe that it doesn’t affect us.

Break the chains, disconnect from your devices, unplug, stop the streaming programming…or at least start paying attention to how much you rely on technology to do the thinking for you. Save your temple. Refuse to be the product.

The Digital Generation’s Answer to Avoiding Problems

METROPOLISMATRIX

How far do you think people will go to avoid their problems?

Transhumanism is the ultimate in ‘convenience’. It aims to make life easier, better and more efficient. Convincing the public of anything that works against their nature and  that’s detrimental to their existence or well-being has often been presented in opposite terms in order to gain trust.

Awareness to the fact that inversion is a hallmark of the Matrix, makes it easier to see that transhumanism is invasive and actually an enemy of human nature and biology. Inversion of reality aside, it used to puzzle me as to why and how so many people embraced transhumanist concepts so carelessly and thoughtlessly, accepting them without argument as if it were natural evolution or true nature.

Our brains are becoming atrophied because of services that provide us with answers offered to us by robotic voices. Commercials teach us to treat them as friends and family, blurring the line for those who, as children, considered Teddy Ruxpin a confidant and support system. One commercial goes a step further by enforcing the stupidity of humans who use the product and even demonstrates that it will refuse certain things that are asked of it, in this case, country music. We are being conditioned to feel that these services are an improvement over the human mind which is an abomination of thought and can never be true.

We use search engines to give us the answers that appeal to their algorithms all the while, our world view dwindles and we forget what it’s like to think and discover on our own. This behavior is plain to see, but it occurred to me that these devices and human-like anamatronics are not here to assist us, but to destroy our connectivity to one another. They prey on our weaknesses and fears of failure and rejection.

Our interpersonal relationships are crumbling and our modes of communication fail us. We respond to life from a weakened emotional state, our relationships falter and we distance ourselves further from eachother, connecting only through emoji-filled texts and we more easily embrace the unreality of robotics and transhumanism.

This advancement in technology encourages human failure. It allows us to go elsewhere for connectivity when we do not want to do the work involved in nurturing real relationships. It becomes the panacea to our natural anxieties, destroying human emotion in the process of ‘comforting’ us.

Who needs real people when robot sex brothels are becoming all the rage? The Barbie Doll as an ideal has led to sex dolls which begs the question, how can humans compete with something that won’t ask how you’re feeling? We will no longer have to confront our real emotions and grow spiritually. All we need is a synthetic android and a touch-screen.

digigen

If there’s one thing I’ve learned over the years, it’s that people will do almost anything to avoid dealing with their problems. Looking through that lens it is easy to see how a troubled, digital generation will accept transhumanism and live-in sex dolls if only to avoid having to face their own human responsibilities in order to continue fabricating lives deeply woven into the Matrix.

Be aware. Save your children. Exit the Matrix.

The core of my work is in awakening people to the programming and conditioning that enfeebles our minds and makes us operate purely through our subconscious and triggered emotions.  Contact me for more information.
