Blessed Are The Weird

The Mystic and writer see the world through different eyes.

My BFF and I have been friends over 50 years. Pre-kindergarten, it was like we were somehow intricately connected. Always the one to make me laugh, and me always the organized, analytical one to keep her focused and on track. We created a balance. But, one thing we had in common, we were both weird!

We wore it/wear it like a badge of honor. With her whacky and wild ideas and my free spirit, we never had a concern for what others thought about us. Classmates aware we share some life long, bizarre, unspoken language.

Weirdness a trait so finely honed as a child thanks to her friendship, it was unquestionably a characteristic to be passed on to my children.

Frequent words to my oldest son, who like me, stood out from his peers not just in physical stature, but in aptitude and awareness, “Don’t live your life worrying about what others think of you.” As he matured, he listened to his inner guide and set the bar high for weirdness in the family.

His brothers, not to be outdone, tried to match, and then surpass, the example older brother had set. The youngest coming along 9 years later, completely redefining the word. He gave it a whole new meaning that we all experienced with amazement.

My sons now adults, they thank me for instilling the “weird” trait in them.

My oldest, sending a priceless hand written letter a year ago when we both decided to make audition tapes for the TV show Survivor. Thanking me, and telling me, that his life is filled with so much more fun living with a mindset of indifference towards others thoughts and a freedom to be his true inner self.

My middle son, texting a month ago, something humorous and strange, commented on “being weird.” Interesting to me, as I had just journaled that same thought about myself.

A day later, synchronicity brings this book into my life, Blessed are the Weird: A Manifesto for Creatives by Jacob Nordby. It was like the book was speaking to my soul!

In maneuvering his website blessedaretheweird.com, I came upon Jacob’s beatitudes for the weird. Inspired by a list of great and wonderful people. I instantly made them my new creed for life.

Life is far to short to care about what others think. Each day we are living and breathing on this planet is a gift.

So, I choose to live my life with the “boldness that shatters ancient fears”, the “intensity of life’s pain and pleasure”, and the “unlimited amounts of unbridled expressions of love”, for I have certainly “endured breaking by life” that have created “resplendent cracks through which the light shines.”

The crazy wild woman within has been too reserved for far too long as she raised her children, now with only my daughter left in the house, its time to make sure she embraces her crazy!! Moving forward, sharing my kind of weird, because within it exists the “freedom for which the world is unconsciously begging.”

For that is my role as her mother … and Revolution Begins With Me.

Free yourself today to embrace your weird and crazy!

Namaste.

“Witches and Wizards” At War While “Muggles” Sleep On

A battle is at hand. It has been for an eternity. Compelling now as it’s reached epic heights and proportions. The dark lords thinking they have the upper hand.

What they don’t understand, are incapable of comprehending, is that the power of the Spirit is an insurmountable force.

While the “muggles” sleep on, lost in their world of materialism, competition, and ego, hell bent on destroying the planet through their never ending lust for excess, the awakened ones, the ones gifted with a “knowing”, have been watching, preparing, and uniting their universal energy.

Reaching the precipice of full on force this spring, the battle between good and evil commenced. “Muggles” isolated in their homes, afraid to go out because of a virus, completely oblivious to what or who it is they should really be fearful of.

Meanwhile, the benevolent “witches and wizards” sharpened and honed in on their individual artistry and craft. Preparing for THIS moment. Preparing for NOW.

The battle heightening in ferocity and scope, the time is at hand for unabridged assault. Not a physical, violent, and destructive descent like we’ve been watching across our country this year. Something much more elusive to most.

Combat of a different making. Combat unknown to “muggles”. For they could never comprehend the pure talents and powers of true “witches and wizards”. They could never comprehend the mere existence of true “witches and wizards”.

They don’t need to know though. They can continue to sleep on. as the passion for not only survival, but a world of love and peace, is emblazoned in the hearts and souls of the awakened ones, ready to give their lives for that which is honorable. That which is just.

There is only one true ending to this story, for righteousness will prevail. The evil and demonic will succumb to the powers of the mighty warriors, for they are no match to those who are truly alive. Those whose hearts and souls burn passionately for not only the survival of our planet, but the evolution of a new peace filled, prosperous, and loving world.

No doubt the battle is underway, and escalating, the climax at hand. Conflicts to be fought and won. For victory lies in the hands of the righteous and noble. One day, for the “muggles” to face their fears, step out of their homes, and if they are fortunate, open their eyes to the reality of what has happened around them.

A new Eden, a new paradise, existing across the globe. For the beneficent “witches and wizards” know only victory. Know only of passion and love. Know only of a brand new paradigm that will awaken dormant spirits and rejuvenate lost souls.

While the “muggles” sleep on, I will be at battle … for the Revolution Begins With Me.

Namaste.

Blue Moon, Halloween, and the Thinning of the Veil

“Reality is merely an illusion, albeit a very persistent one” -Einstein

In a year when the energy has already been overwhelmingly escalated and amplified, today’s Blue Moon, (meaning the second full month within one month, the first on October 1st) falling 3 days before perhaps this country’s most significant election in over 100 years, is certain to bring elevated fervor and tremendously heightened emotion.

I’ve become an avid observer of astrology over the last decade, following the moon cycles, eclipses, and other cosmic events. My favorite source, Tanaaz, intuitive astrologer at Forever Conscious, (https://foreverconscious.com/author/tanaaz) Through her work, I have found great confirmation in the power of the celestial world, using her guidance quite successfully.

The cycle of the moon, when it is full, is a time of release, letting go. It’s a time to sit with self, and allow that within, which no longer serves us, to come to the surface. It’s a time to allow yourself to feel and experience the emotion that wants release and then permit it to happen.

Feelings of unease and dark emotions that arise may elicit great internal discord, but if we can nurture ourselves in positive ways and find an outlet to channel that energy, we will benefit in the long run. Freeing ourselves to the transformations that will follow with the onset of the new moon.

The fact that today’s Blue Moon is falling on Halloween, a night that signifies the beginning of a yearly event when the the veil to the spirit world is thinning, only enhances the overall effect of the energy across our planet right now.

It’s a time when the entities in the spirit world, more than any other time of the year, want to make themselves known. For me, empathic, intuitive, and acutely tuned into this realm, its already been a highly charged week, eliciting much turbulent energy. Why grounding is so important in my life.

I know great change is near. Not because of all wild and crazy occurrences of 2020, but because I, like many other lightworkers, mystics, and healers have been sensing and preparing for this time for decades.

To live in the world of Light, means going beyond the five senses, removing oneself from this limited paradigm. It means allowing oneself to tap into the energy of a higher vibration. Energy on the visual spectrum is only a small dot on the world of potential that exists.

When you allow yourself to move past the negativity and fear placed upon us within the physical realm, a whole new world of opportunity lies on the other side of the spectrum. We are given the potential to travel to planes where the energy waves are higher and grand opportunities and manifestations prevail.

Our planet as a whole has been in an enormous shift of consciousness. More and more individuals are removing themselves from the paradigm of virulence and fear. As they do, they are allowed to ascend and find a more peace-filled and loving space to exist.

The spiritual revolution is no longer a thought or a desire. It has become a reality. It is underway whether you acknowledge it or not. It is happening and accelerating with each new awakened mind. The question becomes, do you drop the illusion you’ve been living in and join it? Or do you wait and once it’s unfolded full force acknowledge its existence?

I’ve known my answer for a very long time … For the Revolution Begins With Me.

Come to Life

You are bringing yourself to life now and this is how it must be. Of course, something being essential doesn’t mean it will always be easy. You must support yourself and have courage during this process.

Beneath habitual thoughts there is a deep sensual creative and energetic awakening happening to you. It is far beyond what the mind is now capable of controlling. Others might not like it because it shakes things up… (Truth) However, it is happening now and the only real choice you have to make is how to deal with it.

Coming to life means feeling. It might bring joy but it could equally bring sadness, rage or fear. It could bring all of these and more. Feelings will come and go quite swiftly when allowed to flow. You might need to paint, write, enact ritual, sing or dance your feelings to help the energy flow. Don’t hold back. … In this process you are uncovering the artistry of the universal creator. You are honoring the sacredness of life by exploring it without restraint and that includes the flow of your feelings.

Learning how to access your feelings allows you to learn how to access your intuition, creative inspiration, and genuine internal guidance.

You are one of the sacred but powerful minority that have chosen to come into a body and live consciously within it. (Amen) … Fortunately, this minority is powerful enough that it can keep human culture in balance. But only just! We need every single one of us that is capable. to be aware of the task and move beyond the mind and into the body.

You can support your own process by scheduling time for yourself and keeping to it like you would the most important date with destiny! So get to writing in your journal. Do your dances. Paint your pictures. Create you creations. Be kind to your body, listen to it and let it be alive.

The message …. “Be Alive!” … There is no falling back into old ways. … There is another adventure awaiting you now. You need a deeper connection to your own instincts, body, feelings, and intuitions so that you can receive this new calling. You can trust in it, too. Embrace it and it will embrace you.

Sacred Fool

(Words for the Sacred Rebel in ALL of us. Sacred Rebels question the way things have to be. They dare to dream of a healthier world based more in love than fear. Sacred rebels believe in love and defy those that say, “You need to live in the real world!” Sacred rebels are living in the real world. Theirs is a world of love, possibility, individuality, and freedom. Sacred rebels refuse to be put down by those who ae frightened of being truly alive.)

The fool is a great rebel, able to thwart convention, and tell the truth without restraint. Your heart is a wonderful, powerful, sacred fool! It cares not for the right way to do things. It cares not for what the mind says is real and not real. It lives according to an inner wisdom that cannot be dictated to or controlled by anything! It loves, it lives, it is what it is!

“Don’t try to be appropriate, don’t try to be socially acceptable and worry about what others may think about what you are doing- just be.”

The sacred fool in you is willing to leave behind what has been because it no longer feels right to stay attached to it. The sacred fool in you trusts life completely.

It recognized the mind as a monkey puppet on strings. More often than not, it is cajoled into fear when it could be playfully dwelling in the radical spontaneity of life. So, the sacred fool in you urges your mind to let itself be pulled into joy by your heart strings, not into fear and doubt by the controlling machines of mass media.

… a message. It’s time for you to play. It’s time for you to let life happen in a completely unreserved, unscripted way, the more bizarre, left of field, unexpected and apparently ridiculous the better. (My childhood bestie and I apparently have always known this! Lol!) That might not feel safe or appropriate at first. That is okay. That is actually a good sign that you are breaking with your own self-imposed conventions. It is time to move beyond them now because a bigger life adventure is calling you.

This is wonderful news. It is the desire of life to operate more radically through you so that you become the conduit through which miracles and crazy wild synchronicity can occur. (My last couple years! Fabulous opportunities presenting themselves. And, best part, it is only the beginning of what the Universe has planned We all have the potential to have this!) You are more electric. You are more plugged into the apparent randomness of life.

If you find yourself making choices that have others questioning your sanity, then you are on the right course. (Guess I must have always been then. Lol) You are just approaching enlightened awareness. There is a moment – … – when we wake up to life, shed our attachment to mass opinion and float in a completely different state of being.

You will eventually see that you are becoming sane in am insane world. (Amen!) The table will turn and you will gain great inner freedom and creative juice. Stay on your path, stay on your journey, remember to take nothing too seriously and it will all work out perfectly.

Dare to embrace the Sacred Fool within! I do … for the Revolution Begins With Me

Our Time Is Now!

Calling all mystics, lightworkers, healers, and sages, OUR TIME IS NOW!

We were born with a deeper connection to Mother Earth, a deeper KNOWING. Many of you, like me, have gone through a series of hardship and tribulation. Feeling like an alien, compared to the masses. Those times were our tests. Training for this day at hand. Opportunities to discover your own unique gifts.

Always knowing there was a deeper purpose for your life. Possessing a deeper awareness of the Life, of the Universe. A spiritual connection, that most have abandoned in search of materialism and ego status. Living in a false paradigm, you sensed your life was meant for so much more.

Many of you, over the years uncovering and honing in on and perfecting the Magick you possess within, some of you just beginning to discover your gifts.

For me, it was an awakening in nature over 30 years ago, after moving to the hilly countryside outside of Missouri’s capital city, pushing my infant son up and down rocky steep terrain, in his Graco stroller, long before jogger strollers were even a thing.

A very profound connection to Gaia was discovered, one I was aware of raised in central rural Minnesota, but one that lay dormant for several years after I left home for college.

Over 3 decades ago now, my life committed to following that calling, very consciously embarking on “the road less traveled.”

Life bringing many obstacles my way: the suicide of my father, a mysterious illness, ultimately diagnosed as severe mercury poisoning, separation and eventually divorce of my first husband (3 sons later), and my darkest most challenging times, moving to a dark, backwards part of our country, and being submerged in a world of ignorance, a world I could not comprehend.

Upon finally getting out, remarrying, and giving birth to my daughter at age 41, I was more certain than ever, my life held a much larger, deeper purpose.

By this time, I was well aware I was a healer, a mystic, an empath. I knew I possessed strong powerful gifts as I seen similar ones being displayed in my sons – sons I lovingly and knowingly called my “warriors”. Each of them possessing their own unique gifts, their own Magick.

My youngest son having gone through the most difficult, most challenging times from the age of three. Fighting against conforming to our society’s ways, especially during our “sentence” in the backwards state, the result, over fifteen years of duress.

I had always told him though, a woman of visions, a gift I strongly and firmly believed in by that point, “We will be rising as everyone else is falling.” Together we will rise higher than either of us could ever imagine.”

I sit in Pensacola, FL as I write this, at his wife’s apartment. Now a sailor at the Pensacola Naval Air Station, a select aircrew member. Last year having to jump through major hoops at the age of 23, to even be able to be accepted into the Navy because of his prior history, (I never had a doubt he would make it though!). Once waivered in, being chosen as part of the select 61st Cardinal Division in St. Louis, MO.

He has spent his life writing his own script, following his own inner voice. Never conforming, always honoring his spirit. Last year, ending in the marriage to his beautiful wife, now awaiting the birth of their first child.

Winter/spring of 2020, NEVER would I have imagined the words of my vision to be SO LITERAL. “We will be rising when everyone else is falling. …” The whole planet suddenly in the midst of an abrupt battle against a silent killer. Suddenly, the majority of the planet submerged into the unknown of an enormous liminal space.

Mystics, lightworkers, healers, and sages, we all knew – we all felt in our souls – that a time like this was drawing nearer and nearer.

After watching our planet spiral deeper and deeper into the destruction of “Western civilization” and the ruination related to subversive consumerism and egotism, this is the opportunity for the Universe to elevate into a state of higher consciousness. Snap the masses out of their lulled reverie, and bit by bit, begin to take our planet back.

We each know our gifts. We each know our Magick. We know what we were brought to this planet to do. It’s time to put them to use and do it. It’s time to open our hearts even wider. Expand our minds even greater. Elevate our souls even higher. This is not to be a time of fear, but a time for hope.

Great, wonderful, beautiful hope.

As for me, I know I’ve been patiently waiting for my time – and my time is now! I will do all I can on my part to generate permanent loving and planet healing change – FOR THE REVOLUTION BEGINS WITH ME.

Namaste

THE BECOMING

I’m saying good-bye to…. a decade of watching my boys turn into men, into true spiritual warriors.  A decade of giving life to a beautiful angel and watching her grow.  A decade of allowing the little girl within me to go to the light.  A decade of releasing the anger so the passion could return.  A decade of fighting for the return of my spirit and my freedom.

I am reclaiming my voice.  For only in bringing the truth out of the shadows will this planet find its way back to a more natural and benevolent universe.  I am reclaiming the light God placed within me so it will shine bright like a beacon for all those lost, hurting, or longing for a more peaceful world.

This is my return to love.  For only through love will we reclaim the supreme strength and energy our Greater Power has placed within us.  I am ready to stand tall, proud, and confident for I am a child of God and with God there is no fear.  There is only love.

This is my Becoming.  The Revolution begins with me.
