Introduction

When I began to look at gas prices in New England compared to California which were much cheaper in the early ‘70s I asked my father about this. My father explained gas prices were higher for us because the closest refinery was in New Jersey (we lived in central Connecticut). That was before the Oil Embargo of 1973. After the embargo ended 6 months later in March 1974 the price of crude went up.

Now gasoline prices are rising for a variety of reasons, price of crude oil, summer time blend, in California several refineries have been taken off-line. If President Trump goes forward with economic sanctions against Iran selling oil to China, India, Japan, South Korea and Turkey who have waivers to buy oil – gas prices will rise in here in the USA.

Even though gas prices are subsidized in the United States and ten other nations, five of whom are Middle Eastern, prices will rise if Trump puts sanctions on China, India, Japan, South Korea and Turkey for buying oil from Iran. The waivers expire in May 2, 2019.

As gas prices rises the cost of many other items rise because we as a nation are mainlining oil. Ecological concerns aside this effects the pocketbooks of all Americans (to a lesser degree hybrid and EV car owners). The impacts are felt to a greater degree by the 99%.

Money, the cost of living is the bottom line for everyone in our culture.

He [Trump] creates crises so he can manipulate outcomes

I bring this up because everyday concerns of Americans are concerned about money and costs:

  • Healthcare
  • Climate Change
  • Justice for All
  • Economy
  • Environment
  • Taxes
  • Consumer Protection
  • Education
  • Immigration

This list is not in any order, though each issue reflects economic issues basic to all Americans and is about cost and /or survival.

 

The Trump Strategy

One of the primary aims of the Trump strategy is to have the spotlight on him at all times whether it is positive or negative. He does not tolerate being ignored and will go to great lengths to remain the center of attention.

He is expert at making himself the victim.

He cannot bear criticism and has a shifting base of lies and an alternative reality in which he resides to combat criticism. He lies and whips his base into the frenzy of rage and hatred against “enemies” and /or scapegoats much like the rallies of Nazi Germany. He uses these lies to fix himself as a victim and as the center of attention while acting as an example for others to act ragefully and vent rage onto scapegoats. He is expert at making himself the victim.

He ignores protocols, laws and the Constitution to bend any and all in his way to his will. He manipulates and cons others to seeing it his way. He has most Republican Congressional Representatives and Senators; the Supreme Court and the Attorney General in his pocket. He continually demands that everything goes his way and does not act in a presidential manner but as a dictator.

He creates crises so he can manipulate outcomes.

A prime example is the crisis at the southern border that he has created by drawing attention to it with lies and manipulations. He draws attention to the caravans as evil so he can build “the wall”. Oppressed peoples in Central America countries who live under terror and are afraid for their lives see “the wall” and the crisis at the border as becoming worse so they must flea and get into the US before they can’t do that anymore. In short Trump has fomented the crisis to bigger proportions. His administration has cancelled aid that was attempting to make conditions better in Central American nations south of Mexico because they hate Obama – who began the programs, deemed it as a total failure and cut it because it cost too much. Thus, Trump is helping to create a problem that he is trying to solve. Then he can distribute migrants and refugees to sanctuary cities to overload those cities and then later blame them for the problems.

 

Circumventing the Trump Strategy and winning in 2020

While impeachment is a good idea the timing of it is wrong. As it stands right now impeachment hearings are unwarranted because not enough evidence has been gathered to enter into the process.

Trump is using every means at his disposal to prevent his taxes from being revealed to members of the House. He is using and abusing laws – no doubt to stop and/or delay this act as long as possible. He could delay all the way up to the time of the election.

He lies and whips his base into the frenzy of rage and hatred against “enemies” and /or scapegoats much like the rallies of Nazi Germany

 The Democratic Candidates running for the Presidency who are beginning to focus on impeachment are grandstanding, taking focus away from their agendas and setting up more opportunities to lose the election if they are nominated and further damage the party.

Focus on impeachment sets up skirmishes with Trump that he can use to bleed energy out of their campaigns through criticism, character defamation and making himself look like a victim that needs rescuing by his base and “true Americans” etc. He will call in the “Deep State” conspiracy too.

Impeachment is a distraction from the issues that affect the 99% of the US population. It will build distrust in those swing voters [and amongst the biggest demographic – the non-voters who have given up on government] that feel they are being left out of the attention they deserve for justice that may never come (at least between now and the 2020 elections).

When Clinton was being impeached for a mistake it hurt the Republican Party in the next midterm election when the Democrats picked up seats.

A focus on the issues is a focus on the people. This wins the election.

Those candidates that are currently pressing for impeachment could slowly back-off while proclaiming that more evidence be gathered while they focus on the basic needs of the American people.

States that have passed laws that demand that candidates reveal their taxes in order to be on the ballots are fine in principle but will not hold up in court. There has been no criticism from Trump about these laws because they will work to his benefit on many levels at election time. If the election is going badly for Trump he can delay voting by taking these states to court individually and maybe all the way to the Supreme Court to delay election results. This will give him more time to be the victim and /or invalidate the election process if it looks like he’s losing.

One solution to these laws – that when they are challenged by Trump a plan can be made by each state Attorney General to suspend the law in favor or a speedy election and review the law later. In this way it could work to the advantage of each candidate especially those that have revealed their tax returns under this law.

Where the focus of each candidate running for president needs to be on what is to be done to help the 99% in the issues that most affect us:

  • Healthcare
  • Climate Change
  • Justice for All
  • Labor
  • Economy
  • Environment
  • Taxes
  • Consumer Protection
  • Education
  • Immigration

Healthcare:

If corporations and governments worldwide took responsibility for the toxins / poisons they are allowing into environment and current healthcare system’s bottom line was not profit then universal healthcare would not be necessary. That’s why Universal Healthcare is a right. But it is also a band aid to the larger issue of personal and planetary health.

Climate Change:

There are immediate and longer-term solutions that must be engaged now if the human species is to survive the adversity to come. The Green New Deal is a start.

Justice for All:

This includes various movements that are unfortunately necessary in this climate of hatred. Black Lives Matter comes to mind. Training by police, greater interaction between police and communities. Civilian oversight of police. Tolerance and Compassion trainings in communities and schools. Justice for women, minorities, people of color, LGBQT peoples, people of color, indigenous peoples and more… Justice extended to the environment, water, trees, – perhaps a bill of rights for the natural world. Remake the Prison system.

Labor:

Encouraging Labor Unions

Economy:

Wall Street investments are very different from the health of the economy. The rich need to be taxed as well as corporations. The buying power of the middle class needs to be stabilized. Income inequality balanced.

Environment:

Restoring and augmenting the power of the Environmental Protection Agency. Shifting away from fossil fuels. Protecting wild spaces, trees and national forests and parks.

Taxes:

Equitable taxes that benefit the 99%

Consumer Protection:

Bring consumer protection back.

Education:

Raising teachers’ salaries so the young people yearn to be teachers. Bringing tolerance training to all public schools. Bringing free higher education to public universities allowing tuition to be paid only be individuals with incomes above 200,000 dollars a year. Make public education a crowning jewel in the US.

Immigration:

Demilitarize immigration to start. Stop the use of concentration camps.

 

A focus on the issues is a focus on the people. This wins the election. Everything else is unnecessary.

 

However

Should Trump win in 2020. Let impeachment begin. And investigate McConnell for impeachable offenses.

 

 

other views of time travel

newscopy

One: Consciousness Displacement in Space-Time

The best and perhaps the only way to time travel without running into paradoxes or strange causality loops is consciousness transfer (And I’m not discussing consciousness travel to occupy or usurp the body of another being as in the science fiction TV series on Netflix: Travelers.). Conscious transfer or more rudimentarily described as remote viewing.

Remote viewing is viewing through time-space at something in the distant past or future without leave the present in body/mind.

Consciousness transfer is a little more complicated. A person’s body stays in the present. The person tethers their plasma or spirit body to their physical body and travels backwards or forwards in time-space to observe.

Each of the two modes of time travel into past or future realities exist in observational mode only.

 

Two: Corporeal Bi-Location

Bi-location has been known to exist in a consciousness transfer mode where one person projects their consciousness back in time so that others of that time period see that person.

Corporeal Bi-Location is a process where a human being projects their consciousness along with mind, emotion and their physical body to a different place in space-time – past or future. Ostensibly a person could project themselves into multiple places and interact with others from each of the places they project themselves into.

 

Three: Physical Time Travel

This part is tricky due to linear thinking and the perceptions of history within a time-line.

There are several assumptions that make this kind of time travel possible. Some ideas, not necessarily in order:

  1. We live in a coarse, seemingly cause and effect finite space-time reality (call it C-1)
  2. Bundled around the coarse reality are finite and infinite potential realities that emerge in and out of quantum realities; and these in-turn interact with our coarse reality – the one in which we all seem quite familiar and appears known. Finite Potential Reality FP-1, FP-2 and so on… Infinite Potential Reality IP-1, IP-2 and so on…
  3. Finite realities exist temporarily by definition and can exist in a potential world of Newtonian Physics or in a potential world of Quantum Physics
  4. Finite realities can merge with infinite realities but continue to remain finite whereas Infinite realities can merge with finite realities and become finite realities and this always occurs in Quantum realities. These kinds of mergings happen in the coarse reality but they are either above or below the strata of our perceptual fields.
  5. There are likely an infinite number of quantum realities that surround and permeate us, but it’s likely according to some physicists that there are only nine quanta realities that are bundled around our coarse reality.
  6. Historical events seem contiguous because of the organizing principles of language, thought and reality building known as consensual history, but they are not. The intelligence of infinite and finite realities that wrap around coarse reality shape history as potentialities merging and separating from coarse reality in micro and macro modalities. Illusory elements of thought that construct reality from a narrow bandwidth of the 9 potential realities that intersect our coarse reality are remade into history so as to give the illusion of continuity.

 

We make many assumptions about “The Past” based on a consensus from a certain point of view. We believe that events in “the past” cause events throughout history to end up a certain way in our “present”. We believe that space-time is a thing or process that happens or unfolds naturally. We don’t believe that space-time is alive or has consciousness including thought and emotion as well as an electromagnetic body. To change a past event that will carry through to the present a significant amount of energy in terms of thought, emotion and physical / electromagnetic force must be present during a “past” space-time event. That force must change the coarse reality and all subsequent finite and infinite potential realities to create a new timeline. The old timeline will cease to exist. If there is not enough energy to change a past coarse reality that reality will appear the same in the present.

If John Wilkes Booth was prevented from killing President Lincoln, then Lincoln may have been assassinated by another or died in a different way. Lincoln may have become inconsequential in other events so as not to have impacted history due to the emotional, physical and intellectual presence of space-time in that timeline if a future person attempted to alter history.

Thought, emotion and an enormous physical force must be created to create a new timeline and destroy the old one. To generate the physical force one or more asteroid impacts on earth’s surface or the explosions of many thermonuclear devices coupled with emotion and thought for the timeline to be radically different and let the old one die.

Higher forms of thought are generated by humans, however other mammals such as primates, dolphins, elephants and whales have highly developed emotional-somatic-thought systems, so to exclude them from space-time travel in the bundle of 9 realities plus 1 is arrogant.

 

 

The Strength of Innocence and Vulnerablity

background beautiful blossom calm waters

Context

 It’s important to be acknowledged and validated. Through skillful uses of vulnerabilities our innocence may be revealed establishing a greater presence concurrent with strengthened sensitivities and a renewed connectivity.

The necessity of heralding the benefits of innocence and vulnerability originates from a society that buries these qualities under masks of suppression and repression to project false fronts of strength and as a result makes secrets. This breeds an unhealthy emotional life that is systemic in this hierarchical culture. Part of the old guard – example – the New England mindset was never to show weakness – shed a tear, admit making a mistake and so on. Many modern peoples believe weeping to be a weakness when sad. One of the meta-rules of modern culture is not to show vulnerable emotions such as tearfulness or weeping in any setting. The one exception may be a man shedding a tear in the presence of a woman partner.

innocence and vulnerability have been denigrated throughout systemic patriarchal culture

The human culture has been one of projecting strength while denying vulnerability particularly in men and also in woman especially as they gain leadership roles in business, as professionals and in government. Due to the suppression or repression of innocence and vulnerability secrets grow in strength and unconscious aberrations of these secrets are vented as a result.

A simple form of unconscious venting is projection. One day when my mother came into my bedroom and was about to say something I burst into tears for no apparent reason. She said – don’t cry, act like a man. The grief I had felt wasn’t my own and she then shamed me for it and I felt confused and shamed. When simple projection becomes projective identification, the person receiving repeated projections is passive and may feel the identity of the other within themselves (see note at the end of this piece).

innocence at the core of the individual emanates from the essence of the person

In short innocence and vulnerability have been denigrated throughout systemic patriarchal culture. What happens when innocence and vulnerability are taken out of the closet and are utilized in daily social interactions?

 

What is innocence?

At the core of almost every individual innocence abides throughout the corporeal existence between birth and death. Innocence belongs to the infinite and is a part of being (see diagram below).

Finite-Infinite2

 

The loss of innocence as described in psychological theory and in literature confuses infinite innocence with innocence reframed by ego. Innocence (from Being) remains and is forgotten. It is forgotten because ego, linear space-time and language in the finite world rides roughshod over innocence that appears ephemeral and illusive because we have no language for it.

masks that give the appearance of strength, dull emotion behind the fear / avoidance of hurt

Shoshin a word from Zen Buddhism meaning “beginner’s mind” denotes an attitude of openness, a boundless thirst for exploration and a lack of preconceptions. “Beginner’s mind” is innocence that springs from an eternity in the present or a beingness.

EssenceFlameEternal

A shamanistic perspective of innocence at the core of the individual emanates from the essence of the person. The essence is a frequency of light that runs near the spinal column to the skull. It enters through the top of the skull and streams out of the end of the spine at the tailbone. The essence is the core of a person separate from ego that is most evident in a child before language develops and up to age seven when ego-identity is fixed. It is usually at this juncture that essence and innocence begin to fade.

Setting strong and flexible boundaries, allowing for times of vulnerability can lead to skills of navigating

Essence and innocence appear in many peoples’ lives but almost always by accident because ego appears to exercise control in the finite realm. On occasion when ego becomes lax innocence and essence appear and a sense of magic, mystery and the divine seem to enter.

A spiritual practice and daily inner work are necessary for cultivating a space to exercise essence and innocence to grow and mature.

 

What is vulnerability?

Think of innocence as a state of being and vulnerability as a kind of fluidic action that opens to innocence. Vulnerability is a kind of currency that moves from the seeming closed and acceptable state of so-called “strength” of the finite world of ego to an opening of innocence in the infinite world of essence.

Continued masks that give the appearance of strength, dull emotion behind the fear / avoidance of hurt. The muscles of emotion along with the balance of beginner’s mind atrophies reducing sensitivity and connectivity. Individuals that are maturing emotionally can begin to take risks to be vulnerable, get hurt and recover. This is about utilizing and strengthening ego on the way to mastery.

finding a safe space within oneself

Setting strong and flexible boundaries, allowing for times of vulnerability can lead to skills of navigating in an emotional landscape even amongst those who are expert at hiding any feelings behind logic and reason. Even those who wield the mask of logic and intellect have emotions that are hidden and perhaps locked away. Sometimes by skillfully allowing oneself to be vulnerable it tacitly gives permission for others in social settings to relax their guard. Sometimes vulnerability when coupled with humor whether that be a witty or self-effacing comment, the armor that others hold can be loosened. A vulnerable leader can get a sense of the emotional temperature or climate of a social space. This can be useful in either attracting someone that wishes to share or someone that craves contact.

Using mild humor, witticisms, self-effacing statements or lines where laughing is elicited is a way of managing when you may have been too vulnerable. Laughter like crying releases emotional distress. Laughter, of course is socially acceptable while crying is not. Humor and laughter cannot be planned (unless you take the ultimate leap of stand-up comedy – but no guarantees). It takes self-trust and a willingness to release something unexpected in a social context even if it is only one to one communication. Enrolling in an improvisational acting and or humor class can be helpful in accelerating uses of vulnerability in informal social settings as well as being “a ton of fun”.

In the beginning of exploring emotional landscapes one might work on finding a safe space within oneself, then expanding that space to one or two others. As a man who arose from extreme social awkwardness it took me many years to begin to access the emotional temperature of others at a party for instance. It wasn’t until my mid 40s that I began to tolerate and trust myself enough to explore my vulnerability in social situations. It took work throughout my 30s, 40s and 50s. And the work is never completed.

when ego has gained sufficient maturity can vulnerability be used skillfully

As an empath I tend to absorb the chaotic, joyful emotions and the vibrations of those drinking, smoking marijuana or using other substances though I no longer partake – am clean and sober. Now when I attend parties I arrive late usually in the middle of the evening and leave early. I contact the host or hostess to say a brief “hello” upon arrival. They’re usually busy serving and checking in with guests. I wait until I find one person of interest. Though the last time I was at a gathering the person found me. If I am at an ebullient party where wine and MJ are being imbibed, especially to excess I get a contact high off these energies (and I am nowhere nearly the smoke). If I am there from one to two hours at most then it takes me one to three hours of being alone to detox from the vibrations of the gathering.

Only when ego has gained sufficient maturity can vulnerability be used skillfully. However, the very nature of using vulnerability to open to innocence there is always a risk of emotional injury. Most people dare not expose themselves to avoid emotional injury and remain a person wearing a mask or shield. A young person in the throes of naiveté exposes themselves without regard to consequences. This is not being vulnerable – more a wild abandonment – a shot out of a cannon.

 

Some End Notes

Navigating emotions in social situations takes a modicum of self-awareness, trust in one-self, a strong ego with flexible boundaries and willing to take risks (become vulnerable). Taking risks means a willingness to be hurt emotionally and knowing you will recover and gain nuance in the skill set of vulnerability.

In the beginning it may be good to have an intention or a goal for possible vulnerability so you can get “the hang of it.” As you become more skilled with a higher functioning ego choosing when and how much to expose by being vulnerable will become easier. However, the risk will always be there.

Working with vulnerability, innocence and being is an art form that requires continued practice.

The Karmic Full Moon in Libra

KarmicFullMoon
The Moon with appear full on Thursday 4/19 and Friday 4/19

Any planet at 29 degrees of any sign is karmic because it is represents the penultimate energy of that sign about to complete itself as it moves into the next sign. Most people constrict in fear and trembling when the word karma is mentioned. Most of us associate karma with payback in a negative way. While that may be true there are positive paybacks as well.

Lunar cycles are about emotions. A new moon begins the cycle with planting seeds (when gravity’s pull down into the earth is stronger – especially true when a new moon is in an earth sign – Taurus for spring and summer crops; Virgo for fall and winter crops in the Northern Hemisphere – reversed in the Southern Hemisphere). Planting emotional seeds under a new moon can be harvested during a full moon.

The Full Moon (March 3, 2019 – 9:43 pm EDT in Washington, DC) was at zero degrees Libra and represented the peak of singular relationship with oneself borne of innocence presenting lessons to yang lead relationships, service to a higher ideal, and revolutionary power struggles. Relationships to struggling to expand the battle between yin and yang.

The New Moon occurred on Friday April 5, 2019 at 4:50 am EDT in Washington, DC. the day of planting emotional seeds. This beginning was a time of paying back karma on every level from the patriarch into the new world.

The Full Moon at 29 degrees 07 minutes Libra on Friday April 19, 2019 at 7:12 am EDT in Washington, DC is about yin energy reaching fulfillment and balance in relationships. Its the Goddess energy receiving energy from the old order while being in service to a new way of being in the world. The Goddess energies in women (and men plus all other gendered and non-gendered peoples) are receiving intensely powerful and expansive energies. Emotionally we are being transformed by completion energies and repressed secrets coming to light for a compassionate revolution to occur.  Goddess energies are being fed by receiving debt owed from held secrets made public or held in abeyance.

The transformation energies are impossible to avoid. Embrace them and let them flow through you or their manifestation may be more difficult in the future.

Why the Mueller Report Isn’t that Important and What Is:

background beautiful blossom calm waters

Keep it simple:

  1. While the fight against Trump is important, the focus of the Democrats is in the wrong place. Therefore: All investigations into Trump should be behind closed doors – unavailable to the public and the media until sufficient evidence has been gathered to make a definitive indictment against the President on multiple fronts. (media attention on investigations into Trump serve as a distraction to the focus of the people – what is being done to help and serve the 99%)
  2. A public announcement by Democrats must be made to show that the primary focus of the party will be on what is good for all the people, including the working class, the middle class, the poor, small farmers, women, minorities, Medical for All, Climate Change initiatives – that put people to work, infrastructure -that puts people to work, Education incentives etc.
  3. Continued current legislation will include The Green New Deal, a detailed plan for Medicare for All, Changes in the Tax code (to benefit the 99%).
  4. Public Pressure on the DNC to support progressive platforms to win the presidency on behalf of the 99% people and a future where climate change is being acknowledged and managed.
  5. Support of an outsider amongst the field of Democrats running for President because the people NOT voting believe that its pointless to vote due to the Corporate-Congressional complex that excludes the people in favor of the moneyed interests…

Jupiter Retrograde – a Primer

jupiter

A modern analog to Jupiter could be Santa Claus. Everything Jupiter is largesse, generousness and excess (which could portend a dark energy but not necessarily)

Unlike Mercury Retrograding, Jupiter and Saturn – often called the Transpersonal Planets because they are both giants sitting in the middle of our solar system – take longer to appear to change direction because of their distance.

When a planet slows down and appears to “hover” in degrees and minutes – this is called stationing. A planet about to make the appearance of changing direction in relationship to the Earth when preparing to go “retrograde” is called stationing for retrograde. For example:

April 8 to April 12, 2019

Jupiter appears to stand still (stationing for retrograde) from April 8th at 1:55 am PDT to April 10th at  10:01 am PDT when it retrogrades. Jupiter is considered to continue to station in retrograde until it appears moves 1 minute backwards on April 12 at 6:09 pm PDT. During this entire station retrograde period the energies of the planet – in this case Jupiter are more intense during the entire retrograde cycle until Jupiter stations to go direct.

August 9 through August 12, 2019

Jupiter stations for direct from August 9 through August 12 – It will be the most intense period of retrograde 8/9 to 8/11 and less so for 8/11 to 12. Jupiter goes direct on August 11, 2019 at 6:37 am PDT.

 

Jupiter is in Sagittarius from 24 degrees 21 minutes retrograding to 14 degrees 30 minutes (inclusive). It will affect Sagittarius Sun Signs from December 5th or 6th to the 13th to the 15th blending the energies of Jupiter in retrograde with the natal sun of that person (see notes at the end of this piece on how to find out if you were born with Jupiter in retrograde). This could be favorable to unfavorable depending how the persons respond to the intensity. ­ If you were born with Jupiter in retrograde (in your birth chart) no matter what your Sun Sign you may have expanded intense spiritual experiences, expansion of business or work opportunities, feelings of prosperity and abundance – beware of over-extension and excess.

 

Jupiter Retrograde Expansive Opportunities  

  • intense spiritual experiences
  • expansion of business or work opportunities
  • feelings of prosperity and abundance
  • expanded / intense love and generosity
  • and more…

 

Capricorn Sun Signs born between the 5th to the 15th of the month will have a pleasant and uplifting moods from Jupiter retrograde. This mood may be utilized for work within Jupiter Retrograde Expansive Opportunities (see above). Taurus Sun signs may be influenced by a fated passionate feeling on the high end (regarding issues from the list) to low end obsessive-compulsive issues – also from the 5th to the 15th of your Sun sign.

The two fire signs of Aries and Leo between birthdays of the 5th to the 15th in particular will be gifted with harmonious expansion of whatever they choose to work on see list (Jupiter Retrograde Expansive Opportunities).

 Aquarius and Libra Sun signs from the 5th to the 15th of the months of these signs will experience an easy benevolence and a dreamy uplifting of energies during Jupiter retrograding. If you’d like to utilize these energies then pay attention to opportunities that may arise from the Jupiter Retrograde Expansive Opportunities list. Those with Sun in Gemini may experience wild swings of excess that could be very good or not so good depending on how attentive you are (see list above).

Pisces and Virgo Sun signs may experience excitement adventure and growth for those born between the 5th and 15th of the months in relationship to Jupiter. Scorpio Sun during the same birth dates may experience a pleasant Jupiterian time. Cancer Sun (5th to the 15th) could be involved in highly passionate fated actives on the high end and obsessive-compulsive energies on the low end (don’t lose your shirt).

Other Birth-dates out of the Range and other Planets in your Birth Chart

 Those born between the first of the month and the fifth; and the fifteenth to the thirtieth or thirty-first may be affected by Jupiter retrograde in other ways.

As you may know or may surmise there are other planets in astrology:

 

  • Sun*
  • Mercury
  • Venus
  • Moon*
  • Mars
  • Jupiter
  • Saturn
  • Uranus
  • Neptune
  • Pluto
  • Eris

Sun, Moon and Pluto are considered planets in Astrology-Speak. Sun and Moon are never retrograde.

 

 Because Earth is the origin point Earth is not included in most astrology systems except Helio center.

 

In each natal or birth chart 11 planets are found within 12 constellation systems or zodiacs of the 12 signs. These will be in relationship to Jupiter Retrograding. Also, your Birth/Natal Chart as a gestalt or whole may have an affinity to Jupiter and Jupiter Retrograding. Consult your astrologer. Or contact me: at the.kai9@gmail.com

No fooling – The Best Career / Avocation Ever

Purpledaywave

In the beginning…

Ever since I was very young I saw my mission to help relieve suffering in the world. I wanted to be a therapist and work to relieve suffering one person at a time. I studied Psychology in college and received a BA.

I began as a counselor.

In 1990 I received a calling, a mandate from God.

One night before retiring I asked God what I was supposed to do with my life. In the morning I had a waking experience that lead me to a woman that was thinking of killing herself. I listened with acceptance and did not offer advice. I was about to give her the names of therapists and groups to which she replied:

“The universe put you out there to hear my call and that’s all I needed.”

She chose to live and is alive today.

 

Further along…

As a counselor and later as a healer I have encountered peoples’ many personal realities. As a counselor in alternative mental health facilities for over 20 years I learned to listen deeply to others problems.

In the course of that work I began to let go of judgment.

When I felt their helpless I allowed myself to feel helpless with them without necessarily saying anything. Sometimes that appeared to have helped them.

Initiation…

All my life I have had bizarre experiences that have been “out-of-this-world”. I never spoke of them for fear of being condemned and shamed as “crazy” or “weird”.

landscape nature sky person
Gateway into Wonder

When I moved to California in 1982 I felt that the land and the mountains accepted me and that I had arrived home. The east-coast Connecticut Yankee critic in me was very harsh regarding the “foo-foo” impressions and thoughts running through my consciousness at that time. I continued to engage in inner “spiritual” work and observed this new consciousness within me.

In 1984 was a bizarre time for me. I saw light running like blood through trees. I had x-ray vision into my left arm where there was blood pumping there was light. A nearby plant extended its light over that very arm. I decided I was crazy – I closed my eyes and prayed for normalcy. When I opened my eyes, everything returned to normal. For more follow the link: Connection to Nature via the Heart

A couple of months later I moved a pool skimmer that was caught-up on a wave-gutter of a backyard in-ground swimming pool without touching it – for more follow the link: Gateway into the Light

I saw a white-light come from friend’s heart to my heart about 20 feet away. I felt love and the warmth of friendship.

Not normal experiences.

Sacred privilege…

As it has always been with my work as a crisis and half-way house counselor the information shared remains confidential so it is with the many clients I have seen in my healing practice.

loveflameEternity-copy2

Clients have come for a wide array of problems ranging from a concern over future events, physical / disease problems, opening to other worlds and many more. The intimacy I share with people is very sacred to me and I feel honored and blessed to be trusted so. I have found that there is something in me that always has transcended the Connecticut Yankee skeptic and critic inside to completely accept, honor and embrace a person’s reality with kindness and compassion. This has been a great blessing.

Each person brings the gift of their dilemma and with that a teaching for me. This completes a cycle of assisting them to solve a problem or problems while receiving a teaching. The cycle of giving and receiving is completed within each session that in-turn creates many blessings for me and the world at large.

Continually letting acceptance flow from me has taught me to embrace the shadow within, and to apply love and support to the parts of myself that I dislike and fear. The cycle of acceptance is a grace from a higher place where we all long to dwell.

When I complete a session, I feel vulnerable and in a trance of higher vibrational energies. The acceptance spills out imbued with love and compassion to include others throughout the world in a new kind of inclusiveness.

The feelings evoked are indescribably joyous.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Gateway into the Light – 1984

sky space dark galaxy

In the beginning I avoided the extraordinary experiences because of a respected teacher had said:

“Many psychic-type experiences will happen as you do ‘The Work’. Pay no attention to this and continue to do your inner work.” 

 spoken by Pierre Elliot Headmaster

of the Fifth Basic Course at Claymont School for Continuous Education

in August of 1981.

In 1981 I had started a house cleaning business incorporating my inner work or ‘The Work’ as within the tasks of cleaning in Connecticut.  Then I transferred the business to Stockton, California in 1982 and then to Sonoma, California in 1983.

On July 3rd of 1984 I was cleaning a summer residence. J’s household was around in the early afternoon and then would leave with the children and Grandpa to Costco in Santa Rosa. They left me alone to clean the house. The weather was odd on that summer day in Northern California, overcast, hot and humid.

I was finishing up in the back utility room by putting away supplies when I heard a commotion on the deck between the house and the garage. It was a dust devil or whirlwind. It had picked up the plastic chairs and tables about 12 to 15 feet in the air whirling around. I peered out of the window watching it when it suddenly stopped and all the furniture clattered back to the deck. I straightened it. I was tired and dirty from cleaning and I had wanted to go home when I heard an odd sound originating at their built-in swimming pool.

Pool-Skimmer

The pool skimmer was caught up on the wave gutter of the pool. Wave gutters are normally for Olympic sized pools and one does not see them in backyard swimming pools very often. This pool skimmer was sputtering, a garden hose attached to its under belly.

I stood there examining the situation and finally said aloud to no one:

“I don’t feel like bending over and lifting it off.”

I felt an impression of a voice in my head say:

“You don’t have to do it that way.”

“Oh yeah,” I said feeling like an idiot for talking to myself, “What other way is there?”

No answer. A feeling or a sense swept over me.

I bent my knees slightly. I clenched my fists and bent my right elbow so that my right fist was near to my right shoulder. My left fist and left arm were extended by my left side. Using tension in both arms I reversed the positions and the skimmer moved off the lip of the wave gutter out towards the center of the pool.

“Nah,” I said aloud. The impression of the voice said: “Well, bring it back.”

I reversed my arms and it came back onto the wave gutter.

I freaked out. I ran to my car and ripped out of there thinking I was crazy.

In the summer of 1984 I experienced many odd things. I saw auras around people at times. While running, my spirit soared into the sky. I saw how light connected our hearts together and how that connected to the light of trees and plants and connected everyone with every being.
