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!

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 Halloween the Only Day for Honesty?

MEtub01

Today is Halloween and it occurred to me that it is the one day where people honestly present themselves as something that they are not. Take a second to grasp this.  The rest of the year, we present ourselves how we want other people to perceive us. It’s really a costume party all year long with October 31st as the day designated where we can admit we’re in costume.

We style ourselves to speak for us. We dye our hair in ‘progressive’ colors so that it creates a perception. We wear red hats to let people know we are just like they are. We cover our faces at protests so other like-minded citizens can fall-in with us.  We wear goth finery and symbolic jewelry to clue in other occultists… I could go on.

Think of how much time we spend presenting an idea of who we are, all the while avoiding the real work of discovering who that person is for ourselves. In my book, Toxic Rainbows, I repeat over and over how important honesty is in self-transformation.  It’s one of the hardest things we face in life. We know that uncovering and addressing hidden pains and roadblocks is one of the most painful things we can do, thus making it one of the easiest things to avoid.

Now is the time to face your truth. Wipe the make-up off your face, quit looking for your ‘perfect angle’ and understand that the real you is not something that is there for everyone to gawk at. When you discover that inner spark, and many of you know what I’m talking about, you will know that my words are true and that what matters is understaning yourself which will lead to your PURPOSE.

Let’s take this day and commit to honesty and to digging deeper within ourselves to discover what truth really is.

BOOK RELEASE! Toxic Rainbows out now!

MATRIXTHOUGHTS01

I’m very happy to announce the release of my first book, Toxic Rainbows.

I have so many feelings and thoughts associated with what I’ve written that I struggle with even giving it an elevator pitch that does it justice.  It’s philosophical, psychological, spiritual, autobiographical–it’s a manual for gaining clarity in a world that is designed to distract and distort perception.

As I wrote, I realized that I had been keeping mental notes my whole life on what I had been learning, observing and understanding about myself and human nature. The pain and confusion I saw around me compelled me to further understand why so many were in a delusional loop of cognitive dissonance and selective outrage. What had happened?

For years I had been slowly moving toward a life of spirit and nature and attempting to understand the meaning of faith.  But when my life dramatically cracked open and I was faced with a life and death situation, everything I had questioned and wondered about was revealed to me and I was given all the answers I sought.

The awakening I experienced allowed me to see my past, future and the world around me with much more clarity and I finally understood the meaning and feelings of faith.

Toxic Rainbows is available on Amazon.

They Are Sooo Unhappy

MATRIXTHOUGHTS02

It seems that I can’t get out of the house without experiencing the pain of others.  I deleted my Facebook account last year to escape the pain and noise of the echo chamber that it is, but even walking into public, people appear beat-up and defeated.

Only yesterday I made the mistake of allowing an acquaintance’s Instagram post interfere with my thoughts and her update haunted me all day. The post was a photo of the sky, a beautiful clear, blue sky with a caption that read, “I am just about infuriated at how beautiful today is.” One more in a continuous stream of angry posts.  I had to comment, “Don’t almost be mad.”  It’s as if people require anguish in their lives and when even nature does not comply, they rebel and insist on locating that elusive misery.

 

A few hours later I ran into an old friend and somehow the subject came around to him saying, “Everyone is unhappy.”.  I didn’t know if he was being very honest or trying to make a joke, so I asked him to clarify and he said, “Yeah…everyone is unhappy including myself.” All I could think of was, “Not him too!”.

Each day gives me more purpose and makes me feel more dedicated to turning people around. Making them remember or to see through the fog of the delusion that it doesn’t have to be as miserable as they seem to be experiencing.

My book will be release in October 2018 and I’m very much looking forward for those in need to discover it and start to change their lives for the better. Let’s be done with this misery!

Look for Toxic Rainbows: Surviving and Thriving in the New Babylon on Amazon soon. Stat tuned.

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.

Toxic Rainbows – Fall 2018 Release

ToxicRainbows Book
Toxic Rainbows coming in Fall 2018.

Toxic Rainbows is a book I had no intention of writing, but it came out of necessity.  It wrote itself after a few years of self-reflection and contemplation of how as a society we are to function spiritually in a world where spiritual transformation plateaus with a hollow meme or a proficiency at yoga.

I am a Generation X writer with the perspective of having experienced life pre- and post-internet. The remarkable experience for some of us was watching life unfold as a veil of delusion was constructed around us. We have the capacity for second sight because we can see the realities of two worlds, the truth and a manufactured delusion.

The delusion, often referred to as The Matrix, suffocated, obscured and redefined words and reality as we knew them. An ever creeping and pervasive artificiality and disconnection was my inspiration in seeking answers to life’s most enduring questions which led to my studying works of an esoteric nature, psychology, philosophy and religion.

Toxic Rainbows is based on my experience of growing up outside of a system we are now mired in, entering into it and finally extricating myself from it by understanding how I became a part of the system and how we had become enslaved by it.

Toxic Rainbows is a book about awareness and self discovery that offers revelations and sometimes unpleasant truth that pertains to everyone. It is a manual for escape and a guide for obtainng the joy and freedoms that are missing from so many of our lives. It’s an alternate route to a much better Oz, a place where true enlightenment can be obtained without fear of falling victim to the falseness that surrounds us or the trappings of the faux New Age.

Follow my blog for excerpts and news on the book release. I will also be posting updates to Instagram.

The True Way To Accessing Your Natural Ability and Potential

Last night before I turned out my light, I contemplated the idea of potential and natural ability. What is it that drives us? What are the things that we gravitate to that are inspired by our own desires and not of the influences forced upon us? How do we truly flourish when we feel others should come before us? Or if we take credit for something we didn’t actually do or express a thought that didn’t come from our own mind?

How DO we access our true potential without giving in to pressures or taking an easy way out to obtain limited or imagined success? By this I mean, when we limit our potential by following a dream that is not our own or when we go along with ‘the plan’ because we don’t want to rock the boat–that is, when we function only as a contributor to someone else’s potential and success and not our own. It may feel good to be part of the ‘team’, but as individual creators it does not serve us.

With these thoughts in mind, I did a reading to gain more clarity and answers for people who may be struggling with this issue. Firstly, we need to understand ourselves and know precisely what it is we desire to accomplish. What actions need to be taken to reach our full potential?

The cards offered a remarkable response.

DSC03793

To access our natural ability and harness our true potential, we need to think like The Hanged Man.

The Hanged Man tells us that there is an inner peace, serenity and happiness in being misunderstood. He is content in knowing that he is furthering his own agenda and spiritual growth by following what his heart tells him.

The Hanged Man is not distressed by how others perceive him. Though he may be ridiculed, shunned, shamed and ostricized, he does not allow himself to be swayed or pressured out of his own beliefs. He is okay being the butt of a joke because he knows he is doing what is right for himself whether others understand him or not.

The Hanged Man’s peace comes from being true, sincere and authentic.

Once we can appreciate the serenity that comes with sometimes being misunderstood, wisdom will come from the experience that is obtained by cutting our cords of attachment to things that no longer serve us.

Temperance is about balancing what is in our hearts and our minds.  We can obtain equilibrium by giving to others, but we need to give to ourselves as well to maintain balance.

DSC03792

Most telling about this reading is the appearance of the three cards above. They are the only three cards in the entire deck that have someone turned fully around and walking away. These three are in step and actively leaving the scene.

If we are to allow our nature to blossom and tap into our full potential, we must not allow the the words of others to stop us. We can’t always expect others to help us in our endeavors and we can’t expect even loved ones to side with us.

DSC03791We need to walk away from people and situations that are not in alignment with our desires. We have to know that the extra work, dissenting voices and even times of loneliness are all contributing to what is best for us. It gives us strength, fortitude and eventually, the calm of The Hanged Man.

And in the end, we don’t even need to say “I told you so.” because people will know who was correct all along.

Are We Poisoning Ourselves With ‘Goodness’?

POLARIZED
I like to think that most people are genuinely caring individuals who strive for fairness and encourage love of their fellow man. Deep down, I think we all want that, but sometimes it drives us to imbalance.  We start to see injustice wherever we look and choose not to see when things are actually going well for us. Our good intentions of ‘righting a wrong’ by becoming angry or emotional simply creates more of the negative vibration we seek to eliminate.

Everything Vibrates. Vibrational energy works in a two-fold way. It is put out and attracts more of a similar type energy (good or bad), it builds on the expended energy and returns to the source with more than it started out with. So if you put positive out, you get more in return. This holds true with whatever type of energy expressed by either your thoughts or actions.

I did a reading yesterday that exemplified this idea.

DSC03638

DSC03636The Reading: When we become so blinded by doing what we think is ‘right’ that we go out of our way to hurt, silence or destroy the ability for others to express themselves, we are treading in a deeply delusional space.

We celebrate and feel a sense of victory when we are with like minded participants, but the victory will not be authentic until you walk with your perceived enemy. When that is done you will both have a better understanding and respect for one another that will transcend bitterness, anger and jealousy.  If we avoid confronting issues that put our belief systems in jeopardy, we will be like the Fool who had his chance at spiritual growth, but ignored the opportunity and fell to his doom.

Our short lived victories will ring hollow and in the end we will see that our emotions and denial of nature have left us with nowhere left to go. We’ve reached a dead end that can only be transformed when we go back, understand the lunacy of our behavior, take the hand of our enemy and walk together.

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.

Always With The Best of Intentions.
