making something happen

I have just been going back through some of my older entries in this, my first and oldest blog, and found something that needs to be clarified. In one that offers some 'how-to' on grounding, I wrote about 'willing' your grounding to connect to the center of the Earth. But 'willing' isn't the best word for it. It implies too much effort. A better word would be 'intend.' Psychically, the thing happens with our intent, we don't have to push or tug at it. That's how the psychic happens,... Sign in to see full entry.

Back to Thought-forms and Realities...

GoldenMean, in previous comments, brings the conversation around to a problem of interfacing with thought-forms, especially when they are not one's own. When a notion of a reality, for example, a relationship with the Divine--a proper relationship with the Divine--gains power, sometimes part of the thought-form is that it should gain still more power by increasing its sheer quantity of believers: The more believers, the more thoughts feed into the thing, the more 'real' it becomes. Why should... Sign in to see full entry.

about dysthymia

I was diagnosed years ago with this condition, described as being almost always just a little under the line between 'happiness' and 'sadness.' There may be occasional mood swings above that line, and sometimes deeper dives below it. Generally, though, it's about accepting not-quite-happy as the norm. In my case, the contributing factors are brain chemistry, treatable with drugs that enhance serotonin levels, like prozac; psychological factors generated by CPTSD, where most every memory is...

Thought-forms and Realities

In the world of dreams, time and space are entirely fluid, flowing in any direction, following no rules. In that realm, they are not real, not as they are here in the world of solid bodies and forms, of physical matter. Matter in the realm of dreams, of imagination, of ideas, is thought itself. First, of course, it is necessary to define 'real' in the context of this conversation. Real means having effect: Can a thing shove another thing around? Can it apply effective force against another thing... Sign in to see full entry.

Reframing

MEDUSA O maid, you once were lovely, full of grace, and named for Wisdom in eternal female form-- Metis, Maat, Medha the names you bore... But the passing generations, reshaping and restructuring the norm, made you over as a thing to fear, no longer Maid, but monstrous with a deadly, stony gaze; Men made you cruel and cold and perilous to life in latter days, forgetting that the peril in your eyes is Truth too true for them to see, and live. Grim-faced now, the Gorgon who is wise, whose serpents... Sign in to see full entry.

Churches and Abuse

I hear advocates of the Church struggle with this most recently revealed, most appalling violation of all trust and faith in the representatives of their God. Some of them are trying to sell the idea that if there is no penetration, it isn't rape, it isn't as bad as rape. But it is rape: of the spirit, the innocence, the entire future life of the victim. It is the profundest corruption of power to victimize the young and the trusting, the faithful. That the administration of the Church has... Sign in to see full entry.

Family

We all come from somewhere, from some people whom we are raised by and among: our family. But not all families, just because there are shared ties of blood, live well together. Not all families are healthy, wholesome, nurturing associations of supportive people. Some are absolutely toxic and dysfunctional, soul-crippling. Parents who never learned to love cannot teach love to their own children. It seems an obvious thing that when a member of such a family manages to achieve escape velocity, or...

Classroom America

The perpetual dilemma of America is over doing the 'right thing' vs doing the 'profitable thing.' The traditions of the American Dream are shallowly understood to be about having the personal power to gain financial security: wealth. But true prosperity is about a lot more than the security of having all physical needs not only met, but guaranteed. Eventually, through our choices and actions, especially through discovering by experience that money alone does not fulfill our human needs, we come... Sign in to see full entry.

"I wish I could do what you do..."

It all starts with the questions one is ready to ask, the doors one is ready peer through... Then there are bits and bobs to learn about, other students to play with, some in the guise of teachers... The point is, we are all equipped with the basics, it is part of what we are. The essence is spirit, but the body is essential to ground the energies that bring the spiritual into the physical world. When I was sitting at my first fair as an energy-worker, a woman sat down in the chair in front of... Sign in to see full entry.

Readings and Psychics

There is a psychic reader at WesterCon. When I was introduced to her, I asked if she'd like to trade readings, and she was all for it. That was Thursday. Afterwards, I lost track of her, but found her at her table yesterday afternoon, by "chance." We did trade readings, two very different styles: She uses cards and a pendulum, where I sit and read energies clairvoyantly. Her reading is about dominant influences in the subject's life--past, current, and near future. When the initial card suggests... Sign in to see full entry.
