This oft-quoted line from Hamlet, spoken by Polonius to his son Laertes refers to the fact that the young man, who is embarking upon his journey to Paris, should take care of himself, in effect, behave himself and not get into trouble. This sage advice can be applied to any young person leaving home for college: do not follow blindly what others are doing, but think, take care of yourself, and be loyal to your own beliefs, ideals and moral values.
The same advice applies to anyone on the spiritual path.
There are many “gurus” who, while teaching essentially the same message, couch the teachings in different terms. However, there are all too many who seek devotees
and while they may have started off as well-intentioned, humble teachers, end up as cult leaders whose egos are stroked by their adoring disciples.
Why does this happen?
The answer is simple: suspended logic and blind adherence to the “wisdom” of the teacher.
It is essential as you negotiate your path, that you always remain sceptical, asking questions and listening to your own inner voice. Never think that someone else can be the one and only teacher who can lead you to enlightenment! Never stop questioning and thinking for yourself!
If the information that has been imparted sounds too outlandish and promises the moon, then listen to the warning bells. Do not give away your power, because it is you, as a “follower” who is empowering the teacher, feeding his ego and elevating him to a status that is “holy”.
It can be very disheartening and disappointing to discover your “guru” has feet of clay, so be true to yourself, think, be critical, ask questions and then make up your own mind, seek further, read, read, read and meditate, for the truth lies within you, and every single person can contribute to the wisdom you seek. Your inner work will reap great rewards as long as you stick to working hard at learning from a variety of sources: find your own truth, find what works and resonates with you. You do not need to dress in outlandish clothing or become a vegetarian. It does not make you more “spiritual”, but if you do and that is what your inner self prompts you to do, then do so. But don’t do it because it is what “everyone else is doing”. You are not “everyone else.” You are you, a unique fragment of Light and Love having a human experience.
And, no, don’t believe that because I wrote it either.
For those of you who are interested in a different perspective, I would like to offer some insights from a point of view that is not discussed in the regular media through the use of divination, a bit of astrology and insight.
Donald Trump’s birthday is June 14, 1947, which makes him a Gemini.
His Moon is in Aries. This combination makes for a restless, changeable, independent personality who will go through many changes, and many new starts throughout life. He has Sagittarius in his 10 th House of Success which is where his very candid – even outrageous – comments and utterances originate since he is bound to tell the truth as he sees it. He has Capricorn on the cusp of the 11th House which is where humanistic and altruistic goals are met. In his case Capricorn, the business “head” of the zodiac swings into full force, which is why he has been able to make so much money. Status and the rewards of hard work are very important to him, but he has a broader vision with Aquarius on the 12th House cusp: He has a vision which he would like to implement and is willing to do all it takes to achieve it, and this is for the broad sweep of humanity, but underneath it is the desire to satisfy the ego, to prove himself.
Hillary is a Scorpio, born on October 26th, 1947.
Scorpios tend to be more closed, less likely to mouth off (except in private), to be more restrained about sharing their emotions in public. She is blessed with an enormous intellect and capacity to be of service to humanity. Her vision of the future is embodied in her inventive and unusual ways to break away from old established patterns, creating new paths through her altruistic vision of caring for people. Non-conformist, she is a trailblazer who has the strength to carry her vision into a reality, and knows how to achieve success through unstinting hard work.
Both presidential candidates have their strengths and their weaknesses.
Now I will address the cards I have drawn for them:
(From the Sirian Starseed Tarot created by Patricia Cori and Alyssa Bartha)
Three of Orbs: (traditional Tarot, it represents the suite of Swords) It is a symbol of Air, which is entirely appropriate since Gemini is an Air sign.
Meaning: “On a dark and stormy background, three dull, gloomy orbs form a trinity in the sky. To the left, dark skies and clouds threaten a rainstorm, but on the right, on the horizon, the sun shines through. A fierce bolt of lightning, symbol of illumination, shoots down from the heavens, striking two opposing orbs and surrounding the third, which sits lower on the horizon. It is a problematic card, filled with the obscurities of the mind’s own illusions. Through the dark hour of the soul, when all appears to be dim and the mind’s eye is clouded to the vision of the higher purpose of difficult or painful experience s of life, the light of understanding is within your grasp. Divine wisdom is laced through experience. When we are able to fully understand that where there is darkness, there too is light, we begin to transmute the suffering into a learning experience. The card invites us to conquer the mind’s focus on pain and loss, and look to the light, where we can transform our thoughts into acceptance and forward motion.”
What does this mean? Illusion and perhaps ultimate disillusionment followed by the pain of loss.
Mirages shimmer on the air, creating false perceptions and creating false expectations like a man travelling through the heat of the desert, success is within his grasp, but as he stumbles on, he discovers if to be a mere illusion.There is no substance to the dream and the pain and suffering that follows can either lead to death or to a renewed attempt to get up and stumble on.
Donald’s birth card is a 3 of Diamonds. Multiple marriages are part of his destiny, dissatisfaction and great insecurities; very creative, great entertainers and speakers fall under this card. Once they have found their path they will attempt to share their vision with everyone.
Hillary: Three of Chalices (and Scorpio is a water sign!)
Chalices represent unconditional love, friendship, and the water constantly seeks balance. Three of Chalices speaks to the unconditional love that Hillary gets from her supportive friends and followers. “From the intimate and very private exchange of the Two of Chalices, the Three opens to the celebration of what comes from sharing emotionally and spiritually with others – without limitation.”
The card also speaks of purity of intention and thought and the goddess energy that is within us all. It is like a celebration of the return of balance, a loving, nurturing energy that speaks of the ability to control emotion through balance.
Hillary’s birth Card is a Nine of hearts. It is the “wish” card and although faced with many obstacles under this card, it signifies a wish or desire that will come true.
Now for a brief look at Bernie:
Bernie’s birth card is a Three of Diamonds, just like Donald. I have often said that he is the opposite pole of Donald and this most certainly seems to bear that out in no uncertain terms. However, he has utilized that energy completely differently, so that his creative focus has been on helping others, instead of primarily focusing on making money for himself. He too has a restless energy, with worry and indecision ruling his emotional side. But, he has arrived in a place where he is promoting a higher vision which is what makes him so different to Donald. Interestingly his Card for the Year is a Nine of Diamonds, indicating losses, the loss of money and a dream, completion and an end to a pursuit.
I drew a Syrian Starseed card for him: Master of Crystals. This blew me away, I have to share this:
The Crystal suit ( Pentacles) refers to “…embracing abundance without being addicted to it…” The suit is ruled by the element of Earth, and as a Virgo, Bernie is fulfilling his destiny, wanting to create abundance for mankind. As Master of Crystals he represents inner strength and power, having overcome his ego and “…reaching pure consciousness of the field of influence – his kingdom – that he has mastered.” He is a leader whose power lies in helping society, and he has the wisdom and self-knowledge to reach beyond the illusion of wielding power for the sake of satisfying the ego.
No wonder we love him so!
I hope you found this entertaining, it was fun connecting with their energies. I make no predictions, we will see what happens 🙂

Stop believing that you are a mere human being: you are multidimensional, a fragment of the Divine One Who Cannot Be Named, an aspect reflected and refracted myriad times. You exist in all dimensions and as all things, whether it be a leaf, blade of grass, an ant. Your angry thoughts manifest as hate, as murderous human beings who are merely that part of you you refuse to acknowledge, for we are all One, All of us, a vast unimaginable manifested energy that exists as what you call consciousness. Even so-called “aliens” are but another part of you. You have always existed, you always will. You are here to experience and co-create a new reality, so get to work, learn to open your Third Eye to experience the wondrous other dimensions that exist.
You choose to be blind, you choose to see hate and to feel anger. You can change all that. Re-program yourself, stop being manipulated by dogma and allow yourself to THINK beyond what you have been led to believe is true. You are not your thoughts, you are far more than that.
I have had many precognitive dreams over the years, and many intuitive nudges, often misunderstood at the time, but clarity came with hindsight. Perhaps it is my subconscious warning me, or my Higher Self, but frequently the dreams have to do with the souls of the people involved. They are often represented symbolically in my dreams.
Michael Jackson appeared in the dream in the form of a gollum-like creature in a diaper, and he was crying, “Help me! Help me!” It was later that day that the world learned of his passing. I realized on some level he was not meant to go so soon, and that this was a desperate plea for help. Just recently the death of Prince was another puzzle until I heard the news, and more specifically, where he had died. In my dream I went upstair in a white house, and said, “He isn’t here.” He had apparently been found in the elevator. I was not a Prince or a MJ fan, I have no idea why I dreamt about either of them.
The 9/11 attacks were preceded by an actual premonition following a strange object in the sky that left me frightened. I dreamed of little children in a shopping cart looking for their mother in an underground parking area, and I was there to help them and comfort them. Prior to the bombings in the London Underground I was there in my dreams, experiencing the confusion and fear, the smoke and chaos in an underground tunnel.
I could not get to sleep on Saturday night. I tossed and turned, sat up, tried to sleep several times to no avail. I thought about the murder of Christina Grimmie and wondered why such a beautiful, talented girl should die. Her death had affected me strangely; I had felt terribly sad about her death.
At about 2 a.m. I fell into a light dreamlike state between sleep and wakefulness. I “saw” flowers twirling up to the heavens, spiralling slowly. I woke up and wondered what that was. It was a new experience, one I did not understand. I actually said out loud, “What was that about?” I tried to sleep again, and the same thing happened. Endless flowers- flowers floating up to the heavens, out of the darkness into the light.
Eventually, at about 3:30 I managed to get some rest and was awake again by 6:30. The Orlando shootings jolted me into the tragic reality of the night’s events. I could not stop crying, I still tear up just thinking about it.
Later on Sunday I remembered my “dream” of the flowers. It had occurred at the time of the shooting. The fact that Christina’s death had popped into my subconscious was linked to Orlando, as if I was being warned that another terrible tragedy would be unleashed upon the people of Orlando.
I did not really want to write this post, but if it gives comfort to anyone out there who lost a loved one that fateful night, I want you to feel comforted: those beautiful, loving souls are reunited on a higher plane, they have just stepped into a higher vibration, just beyond the veil through which our human eyes cannot see. They came to teach us about unconditional love and acceptance, forgiveness and the true meaning of what it means to be human. Let their legacy live on in the way we treat each other.
Creating an affirmation is a form of prayer, in a way, but it is powerful statement of intent rather than a supplication. It focuses on affirming rather than believing or wishing, or even hoping. The wording has to be precise because each word not only has meaning, but power. This power is an energy that can change the very vibratory energy of your mind, emotions and surroundings. It can uplift your mood, change the energetic structure of your body and create a more peaceful world. When we are happy, content, filled with joy and positive energy, we transmit this through our auras and can potentially affect everyone we come into contact with, merely by radiating our vibrations through our subtle bodies.
Years ago I created this affirmation that I use to set my intention for the day. I had attended a workshop based on the classic by Ernest Holmes called “The Science of Mind”. Using some guidelines from the book we worked on creating an affirmation for ourselves. Mine was rather lengthy, I guess I wanted to make sure all bases were covered!
I am a center in the Divine Mind
A point of God-conscious Truth, Light and Action.
All of my affairs are Divinely guarded and guided into right action
and into correct results
All suggestions of age, poverty and limitation are uprooted from my mind,
and cannot gain entrance to my thoughts
For I am well and happy, filled with perfect life and blessed with perfect abundance
I give grateful thanks, for I know it is so NOW.
As the years have passed, I have come to realize what exactly it is that I am stating; how we are merely a Spark, a part of the Divine Mind or Power or Field of Consciousness that exists. I am an individualized expression of that Power, living a life on this planet at this time. By stating my intentions, I have been guided into experiencing many things, learned much but overall, there is a mind-set that has been created that has seen my through difficult times so that the “correct results” have occurred as part of my life lessons.
Create your own, use it to empower you. Choose your words carefully, for you will manifest what you believe. Let us build a better world by starting with ourselves!
Why do some of the New Age Movement teachers make their classes and conferences so ridiculously expensive? So many of them who begin humbly (meaning I can afford to attend their seminars) become so horribly overpriced once they garner a following. That is when I hit the “unfollow” button. To be truthful, I usually learn from their input and explore my own inner world, and no longer need them, so I guess they have done their job. But within a short span of time, some of them have become rock stars, and are off into the stratosphere of gurudom, attracting the wealthy hangers on who can afford to fork out $4000 plus for a week of pampered luxury and wisdom. I wish them luck.
Smile for the Day
While clicking on a YouTube video of unnamed now rock star spiritual teacher, I came upon a very interesting video which contained information that was quite fascinating. I love it when I can learn new things, and this Canadian, Chuck VanderByl, certainly grabbed my attention. His video is well worth the time, so give it a go if you are interested in UFO’s, bloodlines, miracles and more…!
I would like to share messages and information I have received over the course of a few months. Last year, I woke up in the middle of the night, talking out loud. I said, “Thank you, thank you for the information. I have the download. It is happening right now.”
It felt as if stuff was being fed into my brain at a speed of light. Bits of it here and there have surfaced sine then, I guess I must be processing the information.
“The universe and all that you perceive as ‘real’ is existing in a hologram projected by your mind. The mind of the human is co-creating with Source to bring about a 3 D experience based in duality; the projected mind is able to choose its experience depending on the lessons it wants to learn, the other soul group members it has to work with. It really is all an experiment of sorts.”
We are like people in a movie, projected into what we call reality, and we operate largely on emotion and the mental aspect. We choose wars and other disasters to awaken selflessness and to learn to choose love.
Love is a force field that operates through and within us, but we have to chosen to have that filtered so that we cannot see it for what it is, we cannot see who we are. We truly are only particles of light, part of the great One Light and our lives are as ephemeral as the light of a candle.
Forget your notions of good and bad! Learn instead to forgive and let go of your hurts that you so dearly love to cling to. That hurt is not you, it is not your identity but if you make it so and hang on to it it will become part of you. It drags along with you through each successive lifetime that you have since unless you can discard the filters set in place to hide your true Being, you will keep that emotional baggage and go through the same trials and tribulations over and over again until you awaken. Forgiving cuts the cords of hate, revenge, despair…all the negative emotions that become a entrapped in your emotional body. You will keep choosing the same scenario over and over again to relive the particular issues you have and they will begin to manifest as diseases that are ineradicable.
The warp and weft of time and energy interplay with each other to create filters and if you can stand aside and observe yourself, you will see your life being played out against a backdrop of experiences you have chosen. It is as if it being projected on a screen, and it is as hazy as an old movie…one you can watch and say, ‘Gee how I have changed,’ but if you do not forgive, the images remain fresh and clear, and the pain body wants to delight in this and relive each episode.
Learn to feel joy, to take delight in your Beingness, to forgive for this is the path to your redemption, the way Home to experience your true magnificence. Know and fully understand that each single entity is part of the same glorious One, even those who commit vile acts. They are merely asleep still, and we must send them Love constantly so that they will awaken too.
There are grids of light surrounding the planet to hold the energies in place, nodes and vortexes that are aligned with the angelic realms of light, and we are connected to these through our chakras. This projected universe- yes, even the stars and suns and planets are merely ideas that exist, they are as unreal as your own body, your vehicle that you inhabit while you are here.
This is all an illusion, a magnificent one that was created by the various angelic and light beings who have formed and moulded the world as we see it through human eyes. There are realms and dimensions so far beyond what we can access, and each dimension has what you could term a ‘God’, an overarching energy that regulates his particular part of existence.
It is for this reason that we cannot see other life forms, (what you call ‘aliens’) but know this, understand this, each and every single thing that we can see has multitudes of universes within them, atomic, subatomic and so on. It is a spectrum of energy that is so miniscule it cannot be measured and yeah, dear reader, even sand, mountains, clouds, water…all EVERYTHING is made of energy, and therefore has consciousness (even if it limited) and exists for our pleasure. Do not abuse it, use it gently, with love, care and understanding. It exists to make our earthly 3D existence beautiful, varied and exciting. We came into bodies having evolved not from apes, but as created forms that began through aeons of time to have consciousness.
You do not need a ‘God’ to worship; the energy that Is, is neutral, it does not require to be feared or worshipped or pandered to. But you can work with it, through tapping into that flow of energy, to ‘go with the flow’ as you say, means that you are in divine alignment. You can change your life by changing your mind, your perceptions and please discard the beliefs of an outdated religion that dictates how you should feel and act…do not get me wrong, this is not a carte blanche for your conscience, your inner urging voice that is the Voice or Energy of the One Light (also called the ‘Central Sun’) wants you to have a magnificent, wonderful earthly experience, filled with blessings and love. Do no harm. Be kind.
Healing from a trauma does not mean you should forget it.
Healing means that it no longer has power over you, so that you are no longer emotionally entangled with the pain of the event or trauma.
It is our collective duty to help those who have suffered deep pain from the past through mass events, such as war, the Holocaust, slavery, genocide and all the other miseries the human species has managed to inflict upon its fellows.
We are connected through our thoughts by means of the astral level. We are all able to access the lower astral, in the fourth dimension, a layer of reality in which all thoughts and deeds, and words and actions are stored. We draw from it continually, and we add to it and we can use it to further our potential on this planet.
How? Well, you must have sometimes experienced seemingly coincidental occurrences, such as thinking of someone, only to have them call you a few minutes later, or of several people coming up with the same idea, sometimes from across the globe?
They are tapping into the collective unconscious, a kind of massive thought form from whence many draw inspiration.That is the astral plane, which exists in the fourth dimension.
There is nothing new under the sun. It has all existed before, thought before, experienced before.
We can add to it by thinking positively, by spreading joy and laughter and healing. In this way we create a lighter, better energised aspect of the astral, one that will benefit each and every individual
We can do it through affirmations, prayer, meditation, toning, singing and laughter. Not laughter at the expense of others, but joyful laughter.
The words and symbols that cause immense pain need to be healed and that needs to be changed. The “N-word”, the swastika, certain words and images and beliefs that evoke pain and anger, all these are merely words and symbols but they have been imbued with emotion that overwhelms those who have not healed their own pasts. Only when each individual has learned not to react on the emotional level to an inanimate thing, will we be able to move forward as a species. We are mired in our own emotional garbage, wallowing in the pain of a past that is an illusion.
The past exists only in the mind, it is not real. The future isn’t real either. Only NOW exists. practice being in that NOW moment. Practice forgiveness constantly. In this way you release long held pain; only through forgiving can we move forward and heal.
If we all did this, consciously, we will change the emotional patterning that we have been imprinted with. We will learn not to react with anger, because we will realize that it means nothing.
What is it you desire by becoming angry over these things? Recognition of your own pain and suffering? Is this a cry for help, a cry for attention?
Do good works if this is your mission. Be kind, be mindful, be aware. That is the key: awaken to your true nature, your connection to Spirit, for you are all part of each other and I am that part of you that wants you to awaken, to realize that you are not just a body, not just intellect or emotions. You and I are inextricably intertwined as each other, we are each other. The Bible states somewhere that you are your brother’s keeper. It is more than that, you are your brother, your sister, you have existed always as a fragment in the One Mind.
We are the sum total of All that Is, the I am that I Am. “Be still and know that I am God” is not referring to a God “out there”, it is referring to YOU YOURSELF.
Once we truly realize our divinity we can heal and move on, and create a heaven on Earth, so that we can enjoy our humanness in a loving, conscious way.
This will take time, time as we perceive it to be, but that is but another illusion.
There is much talk in spiritual circles about “The Shift” and how Gaia Herself has ascended into a different reality since 2012.
Is this much ado about nothing?
Most people are just soldiering on, with no apparent changes to their behaviors or perspectives. Life goes on: eat, work, sleep, procreate, look for a mate… the usual human things that make us human. This robotic existence is very much a 3D, old Earth way of being.
But wait…look under the fraying edges and take a closer look at what is happening!
A vast number of people have experienced physical symptoms that are inexplicable and are not diagnosable and often untreatable. The influx of energy, not only from solar activity which has been vastly increased lately, but also personal upshifts in energy absorption has heralded changes in perception that those who are more awake can recognize.
Here are some of the observable changes:
1. Weather patterns and seismic activity: We are all aware of this, and it has been sped up since 2012. Glaciers are melting, massive storms are causing havoc. Earthquakes and volcanic activity has increased dramatically.
2. Different political ideas and leadership coming to the fore. Sadly, I have felt since Hillary was ousted as Presidential candidate in 2008, that her time was past, that she would never be president. My feelings may be wrong, but there is a tremendous number of younger people who are very vocal about Bernie Sanders. Can he truly bring the change the Millennials are seeking? Hillary is being perceived as “old school” with ideas that are no longer viable in a swiftly changing world. The Republicans of this world unfortunately are for the most part stuck in an outdated ideology which resonates with the majority of humans still vibrating at a different level due to their beliefs.
3. The Millennial Generation: the energy of this vibrant younger generation sees things in a very different way to my generation. Many seem far less interested in pursuing wealth for the sake of accumulating debt and acquiring “stuff” for the sake of ownership. There is a great focus on creativity in all the arts and sciences bringing in fresh perspectives that do not sit well with traditionalists.
Good for them!
4. Thousands are departing the planet and returning to Source.
Natural and other disasters are precipitating a huge exodus of souls on a continual basis. Their energies have been recalled so that they can prepare for the next round of incarnations which may not necessarily be on this planet.
5. The “Tiny House” movement: making do with less. There is a realization that we don’t need to be living in huge mansions to be happy. There is a return to simplicity and a greater willingness to share resources, a complete shift from the previous generation, especially those who lived through the Depression and worked hard to provide for their families, thereby creating a perception that we are always staving off poverty instead of looking to our spiritual selves.
6. Changing diets: The growing trend in vegetarianism and compassion for animals.
7. Alternative medicine: More and more people are disliking the side-effects of allopathic medicine which is an old school way of viewing the body as mechanistic. Alternative medicine sees the body and soul as an entire organism and not just as spare parts that need replacing or “fixing”.
9. Popular media is no longer “popular” among the younger generation. They do not want to be told how to feel, dress, where to shop and what to buy. They constantly seek other forms of entertainment and this has created a boom in media outlets and opportunities. They are constantly connected to the ever-shifting changes through their media devices and are far more aware and compassionate than is given them credit.
What has occurred is an ascension into fifth dimensional thinking. This means that the old problems are left to those who still want to be part of that reality, and the power that large corporations and greedy governments perpetuate through scare tactics. I know the trends mentioned in the above list refers to the minority of people, but they are the ones leading the way to changing our ideas, perceptions and beliefs.
For those who have meditated many years and are helping with the awakening of humanity, those who have eschewed popular religion, there is an awareness that living in the “Now Moment” is all that matters. They have learned to control their thoughts and cannot be swayed by scare tactics, fear and and control. They have learned that worry solves nothing, and that looking for solutions is everything. There is a far greater connectedness thanks to modern media. Those who cannot keep up, or don’t want to because they fear technology are very unfortunate because we have only achieved the tip of the iceberg technologically speaking. They are left behind in sharing their ideas, their power, their insights, cutting themselves off from humanity which has moved on to a different level of being.
Welcome to the Brave New World. May you all live long and Prosper. 🙂
