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.

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.

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.

What We Can Learn From Limahl

limahl

This just goes to show that you never know where you might find words of wisdom and powerful things to reflect on that will help your spiritual growth and transformation. It never occurred to me to turn to 80s pop star Limahl of Kajagoogoo to contemplate one of the problems crippling so many people today–prescription drug use.

Prescribing meds to ‘fix’ our problems is a pet peeve of mine, particularly since we have seen them prescribed more frequently and at younger and younger ages. It’s disturbing to think that being on meds has become as normal as taking Vitamin C.  It’s become a rite of passage and parents seem not to hesitate in starting their kids on a lifetime of pain and suffering caused by meds that inhibit the body’s natural functions.

They dull our senses, they debilitate our ability to think and reason and every single one of them provide a host of side effects that we didn’t have before we started taking the meds to begin with.

In the song Too Shy, Limahl sings,

Modern medicine falls short of your complaints, try a little harder.
Moving in circles, won’t you dilate. Ooh, Baby try.

In these lyrics Limahl teaches us that we are a bunch of whiney babies and that prescription drugs will never solve our problems. We need to try harder.

He continues by telling us that we are not learning from our problems, only going in circles as if one foot is nailed to the floor. We need to expand our thinking and reach deeper, not obscure our ability to think by the use of meds. Then he says “Ooh, Baby try.” So you know he’s sincere.

Just a bit of levity here, but it’s not that I don’t believe it or think it’s a good message. Thanks, Limahl!

[Disclaimer and urge you to consult a doctor or get a second opinion before you decide to get off your meds or before you start to take them. Give your body a fighting chance, there are enough zombies in this world.]

Are You Being Vampirized?

VAMPIRIZED

I had a dream last night about an old friend. He was my best friend for 5 or 6 years.   We worked on creative projects together, we were even roommates for a while. But something happened and our friendship devolved into an energy-sucking one-way street.

I had moved to the opposite coast and noticed that our telephone conversations were becoming more and more one-sided and would end when he was done saying everything he needed to say. This went on for some time until I finally explained that we couldn’t be friends anymore. We got off the phone and I haven’t spoken to him since.

This was a very good friend and one I’ve thought about over the years, wondering how he was and what he was up to. Even now, 20 years later, I’m dreaming about the guy, still not knowing how he is, but confident that ending the friendship that was going nowhere needed to happen.

You might think that if you are such good friends with someone like this that you can overlook certain character flaws and behaviors that always put you second to their needs, but good friends don’t do that.

I was only able to end this friendship because I had just gone through an experience where I understood how it’s possible to be victimized by a vampire. Of course, I’m not talking about the kind that cringe at the sight of crosses and avoid daylight, I’m talking about psychic vampires.

I had started a job where I was assigned an office, a closet really, a tiny little space that fit a 12′ table and two small cube-shaped Apple computers. I shared this space with someone I really liked. A funny guy, a writer who loved to talk, loved to share and share and share. After a couple of months I noticed how exhausted I was after work. The work itself was a breeze, but I’d leave work completely depleted of all energy.

It got to the point where I dreaded going into this closet office. I really liked this co-worker friend, but it was like being an audience of one to a stand-up comedian doing an 8-hour schtick. That was vampirism.

He got all of his needs met. He had a captive audience. He got the responses he wanted. He got admiration and I laughed at the right times. I didn’t even get a T-shirt out of it, but I did learn something about people and about myself. I learned that people need validation at any expense and I learned that sometimes you have to say good-bye to people you love.

In the dream I had last night, it was the first time I’d seen my friend since we stopped being friends 20 years ago. There was a vibe that that was the past and we’re here now.  I was shocked when he introduced me to his twin brother. There were now TWO of my friends in front of me. I wondered why he never told me he had a twin and when I woke up I wondered what it could mean. Perhaps it meant that he’s a different person now and we can be friends again. If he knocked on my front door, I’d certainly give him a hug and ask him in, but I’d find out if it was the new twin or the old friend.

Ending relationships that serve no purpose is not easy, but sometimes it’s necessary. And if we’re lucky, they will mend over time and we can pick up where we left off.

Just Suffer

DSC04987 (1)

SUFFERING. When I was a kid we used to say, “Suffer!” as a way of saying, “Too bad, deal with it.” I thought it was funny back then, but now it’s all too painfully real.

We NEED to experience emotional pain in order to understand what it’s like to be free from it and to overcome it. We do ourselves a disservice when we shield our children from experience and every unpleasantness. We fall deeper into a despair that we can’t begin to fathom when we choose to cover our real and imagined problems with medication, labels or a host of other distractions.

We literally need to suffer through things in order to overcome them. That’s how we get stronger and that’s how we grow. So the next time someone tells you to ‘suffer’ just say, ‘Ok, no problem.’.

Accept This Truth

MEKIDfull

I have been trying to get my point across for as long as I can remember.  I have lingering memories of questioning things and wanting answers, my Lilliputian defiance demanded it. It’s no surprise that this photo came to mind as I considered the starting point for this blog.

Even here at the age of four, I can almost recall a sense of knowing something about the world that was not told to me, but was just there in my mind to ask about and then confront adults when their actions veered from the sensical.

I’ve learned a lot since this time and am much less confrontational. I’ve come to understand that there is no such thing as a single truth and that each person creates his own version of what truth is, whether it is based in reality or not.

One of our purposes in life is to understand truth, but in order to grasp this, we first need to know ourselves. When we think about knowing ourselves, it doesn’t mean the labels we attach to our physical being–parent, teacher, friend, traveler, advisor, mechanic,  activist, artist…the labels are infinite. And neither are we our sex, race, marital status or gender.

Labels we use to describe ourselves are great on forms, statistics and classification. They function as a means of telling other people where you fit on the pie chart. All media, advertisers and politicians will then find you on this pie chart from hell and tell you how you should be feeling, what you should accept or reject, what you can be happy or upset about and ‘Don’t worry because we know you, so you don’t have to’.

Knowing yourself is work. Stepping away from cultural and familial pressures and expectations is work. Finding your purpose and discovering your true inner self is work, but there is no better work than inner work.

In the past few years I have gone through some dramatic change and have had some intense inner discoveries. My life and worldview has dramatically improved. I have clarity where there was once uncertainty and distraction and as I continue to move forward I would like nothing more than for others to be on a path of discovery right along with me.

Like the mouthy child in the photo above, I have much more to say and will be sharing my insights, thoughts and personal experiences with anyone who cares to hear about them. I encourage comments and questions as well.

Updates and progress on my book, POST-SANITY will also be posted here. FOLLOW ME ON INSTAGRAM, TOO!
