Earthquakes and Auras

Odd as this may sound I’ve noticed a lime green color in people’s auras, and also sort of floating around always and only within a week of an earthquake. For those of you who see aura colors and live in earthquake country, this is a big heads up. Also if you own pets and they start acting very oddly, and/or you notice everyone around you getting terrible headaches, and extremely erratic driving be aware, there could be an earthquake coming. 

For those of you who don’t see auras but are interested in learning or trying to see them, there is one way that really works. You have to work with a partner (I guess you could try this alone but it would be hard). First do some meditation to clear your minds. Dim the light so that you can barely see. Then take turns standing in front of a white wall. It’s best if you have as much skin exposed as possible. if you are both comfortable being naked with the other person that’s the best (I’m not comfortable being naked so I’d go for a tank top, but that’s me) squint your eyes and look just above the line of their body. At first you may get vague impressions or feelings about colors, then as you practice more you will start to see colors. Later you may find yourself in the middle of a conversation over coffee and see someones aura if work at it or turns out you have a hidden talent for it.

Here are some basic color definitions please post your own associations on the blog. I’m always interested to see how colors appear and what they mean to different people. 

Yellow: Super analytical, left brain type. If you see this as a blob on the head it means the person is thinking, usually about something very left brained like math. This type is very logical and can be intolerant of spiritual or emotional types. On the negative side they can come across as arrogant to sensitives because they have a tendency to be judgmental about anything that strikes them as flaky.

Red: I’ve only seen this in spots on people and it usually, for me, means there is physical problem that needs to be addressed where the spot is. If it is more detached and has other colors associated in the spot it indicates (for me) an emotional problem, usually suppressed anger.

Orange: I’ve seen this pretty rarely as well, as most of my friends are in the cool spectrum. But anyway, it indicates intense passion, creativity and in one person I knew whose whole aura was orange, he had an invasive sexuality. Everything he did and said seemed like he was astrally tongue kissing you. 

Green: Ah, the healer. These people tell you everything is going to be OK and you completely believe them. They have this intense calmness and groundedness. They are great with their hands and often go into some form of healing as a profession or I’ve seen sculptures who are greens as well.

Blue: Calm yet emotional, loyal, kind hearted, easy going for the most part. They are very balanced and have good command of both their right and left brains. They are creative but also logical. They are spiritual or religious but again it is in balance.

Indigo: A new color, added to the human spectrum according to older psychics around the 1960s. This is when they began seeing it in some children. It has become more common now. They are psychic, spiritual, eccentric, strong willed, independent minded and can be moody. They are very creative but their creativity comes from tapping into the collective unconscious rather than in the case of the oranges whose creativity is more raw and primal.

Violet: Very spiritual, psychic, leader types, bossy, can be a  know-it-all. Sylvia Brown is kind of a full on Violet personality type but a negative version. A more positive version would be Allison Dubois (from the show “Medium”).  They are really intense and can be a handful but they are very spiritually powerful.

White/silver: I’ve only seen this (oddly) around people who were trying to project a persona. It doesn’t seem to be a natural human aura color but rather a protective shell that is meant to hide the real personality. Not to say there is anything bad about these people, they could be either insecure or assuming a role instead of being themselves. They are usually good people who are trying to live up to a lot.

Gray: If you see someone with this, tell them to go to a doctor ASAP. This is the color of someone who is physically ill. I was at the David Letterman show a few weeks before his heart attack and he had a really sick gray look in his aura. This is when I started to put the gray aura together with heart attacks. It usually is heart related from my experience.

Chartreuse: Now that’s a weird one huh! Yes, it is. I’ve seen it only twice and if you see it run for the hills this is a person who is trying to seem like something they are not. Both times the person was “new age,” and very messed up emotionally. They may want to help others but they don’t have the knowledge or ability and are trying to project something that isn’t real. This is the color of a con.

Magenta: Very spirited, whimsical, artistic, fun loving people who love to be different.

If anyone has more questions or again, if anyone has different associations with the aura colors please post them. I’ve noticed different psychics will attribute different characteristics to the colors. Perhaps we all notice different things about people with different aura colors depending on our perspective.

Best wishes and many blessings to all,

Denise

The Words and Written Instruction to the Lesser Pentagram Ritual

Here’s the link I found the following written version of the Lesser Pentagram Ritual:

The Lesser Banishing Ritual of the Pentagram, or LBRP, was formulated initially by the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn and is a ritual of banishing which focuses on invocation of Divine elements prior to a magickal working. Under the power and virtue of the pentagram, lesser energies are banished from the presence of the magician and will not return (unless invited).

Performing the ritual prior to any working or as a means of starting one’s day dispels the negative energies of the psyche and otherwise.

History of the Lesser Banishing Ritual of the Pentagram

The first recorded instance of the LBRP as a practice was noted in Eliphas Levi’s works, and likely stems from a Hebrew prayer as documented by R. Samson Raphael Hirsch in ‘The Hirsch Siddur’ [Feldheim Publishing, 1969], which reads as follows:

“In the Name of God, the God of Yisrale: may Michael be at my right hand, Gabriel at my left, Uriel before me, Raphael behind me, and above my head, the presence of God.”

Other variations of the LBRP exist including a Gnostic Pentagram Ritual, the Enochian BRP, the Wiccan LBRP and the Olympic BRP.

By utilizing the pentagram itself in the ritual, the magician is calling on the powers of the elements to assist him in his working; the correlation being that the upright pentagram represents the highest aspect of man and the spirit is consciously in alignment with and ruling over each of the four elements.

Steps to Performing the Lesser Banishing Ritual of the Pentagram

Perform the Kabbalistic Cross.

Face east. Stand straight with both arms at each side. Visualize the color blue. The color should be that of an electric stove flame. With your left hand remaining at your side, inhale deeply through the nose, stretching out the right hand holding an athame, dagger or pointing the index finger. Starting at your left, trace a line from your left hip up to a point just before your head, then down to your right hip, up to your left shoulder, across to your right shoulder and then back down to your left hip. As you are drawing the pentagram, see the flame as projected out to a point past your finger. Project this image out from you so that the pentagram is before you.

Inhaling deeply with the pentagram burning before you, bring both hands up to the sides of your head just adjacent to your ears. Point the index fingers of both hands toward the pentagram. Step forward with your left foot simultaneously pushing both hands pointing through the center of the pentagram, exhaling and feeling the energy go out to the end of the universe. With this exhalation, vibrate the words YHVH (pronounced Yod-heh-vav-heh).

Bring both hands back to your ears and your foot to its original standing position. With your right hand still pointing, extend your hand toward the center of the pentagram. You will now be drawing a line from the center of this pentagram to the next, moving in a clockwise direction ninety degrees until you are facing East. As you trace the line in the air, visualize a brilliant white light emanating from the tip of your finger or blade.

Repeat the pentagram process for the south, tracing another pentagram and vibrating ADONAI (Ah-doh-nai). Pointing the athame or finger again, trace the white line to the west and repeat this process, vibrating AHIH (Eh-he-yeh).

Turn north. Trace the pentagram and vibrate AGLA (Ah-ge-lah).

Complete the last trace of your line as a circle which meets and closes where you began in the East. Visualize the circle as three dimensionally around you in all directions, so that you are encased within a white sphere of protective light with the electric blue pentagrams encircling you in all directions..

Evocation of the Archangels

You are still facing East. Stretch your arms straight out to the sides so that your body forms a cross. Meditate on the energies flowing through you and making you a brilliant cross of light at the center of the universe.

Remember that each angel represents a corresponding element, so it is helpful when invoking them to also strongly imagine that element that they are a part of.

Visualizing Raphael

Visualize a figure on a mound in front of you. The figure is dressed in gold-yellow robes with purple highlights. The figure carries a caduceus wand (the symbol used by doctors, a wand entwined by serpents, which represents the life force) and the figure’s robes wave in the wind. Feel an airy breeze coming from behind the figure. Say, “Before me, Rah-fay-EL.”, vibrating the name.

Visualizing Gabriel

Visualize a figure behind you clothed in blue with orange highlights. The figure holds a cup and is surrounded by waterfalls. Feel the salty moisture of the sea in the air. Say, “Behind me, Gahb-Ray-El.” vibrating the name.

Visualizing Michael

To your right visualize a figure dressed in scarlet with green highlights. The figure holds a flaming sword. Sense heat emanating from this direction. Say, “On my right hand, Mee-chai-EL.”, vibrating the name.

Visualizing Ariel

To your left visualize a figure dressed in greens and brown on an earthy, fertile landscape. The figure holds some sheaves of wheat. Sense the dark feel of moist earth and green, green grass. Say, “And on my left hand Ohr-ree-EL.”, vibrating the name.

After these visualizations, move your left foot out to your left and visualize another blue pentagram all around you, outlining your body. Say aloud, “For about me flames the pentagram…”

Visualize a golden hexagram, a six-pointed star, sometimes called a Jewish star, or Star of David, within you, right where your heart is. Say, “…and within me shines the six-rayed star.”

Thanks everyone for letting me know it was hard to understand him. Have a great weekend!

Best wishes,
Denise

Psychic Protection

I’ve had people e-mailing me about various psychic/supernatural phenomena recently. Whether you are being haunted by a malevolent ghost, an alien, a demon or bizarre inter-dimensional being. Whatever supernatural situation one may find themselves in, the best thing is to learn the Lesser Pentagram Ritual. 

Here it is:


 
Especially if you have psychic or sensitive children. It is imperative to listen to them and teach them psychic protection. This is the platinum premium A #1 form of psychic protection I’ve found. It works for EVERYTHING! I’ve had friends use it who were being abducted and it stopped! And of course it works for protecting you against all forms of negativity.

For those who are especially sensitive and or fear there are malevolent beings infesting their home, do it frequently, and for sure every night before sleep.

Oh and here is the banishing side, basically dismissing the protection. Honestly, I rarely ever use this but for those who are interested here is a lesson on it as well.

Best wishes and many blessings to all,
Denise

Readers Questions & Comments…

Sorry I got carried away there with conversing with Jahavahaa. He is obviously a very intelligent man with a lot of insight.

Anyway, there have been some really interesting posts that I haven’t gotten to. Also I’ve noticed more and more overlap in the dream journal. Have you guys noticed this as well? 

OK, so here goes. The first from:

I dream of Israel too

Hi Denise, well written. I too am Jewish and cannot believe Israel’s mismanagement of world opinion by its behavior in Gaza. I’ve seen more antisemitism this winter than I have ever witnessed in my life. Will there be any sympathy when the cards fall karmically in Israel? I kind of tend to doubt it. Instead people round the world will be cheering, “Good! Filthy Jews, die!” It is almost as though non-Jews are writing the policy in Israel and attributing it to us in order to get us all killed! Hitler in his wildest dreams could not have come up with a more efficient plan to make Jews and Jewry look bad 😦 I too have dreams of Israel before she misbehaves in the world theatre. Tell me what this dream from four nights ago means, because it has me terrified: I was here in New York, among tall buildings, and the sky was a very deep, strange, unreal twilight blue. People were pointing with smiles of wonder up at the sky, so I looked. Odd military aircraft were streaking by overhead and all had the Mogen David symbol on them. These were firing missiles down at America. I saw F16s appear and fire back, but deliberately off-target so as not to hit any Israeli aircraft. I asked, “What is going on, why are Israeli jets firing at America?” And a voice from someone in the crowd yelled, “Israel is attacking America!” People began to run screaming in all directions. I continued to look up at this bizarre sight of Israeli jets firing odd streaming missiles through the sky, and American jets either deliberately missing them, or having their return fire shunted aside almost supernaturally. Nothing the US fired touched so much as one Israeli warplane. It was like the US had its hands tied behind its back. Now: a large bridge was prominent in the dream, and among the people fleeing, I saw a man who resembled Ted Kennedy, and thought to myself, “Senator Ted Kennedy; what is he doing here?” I woke up having a very bad feeling off this dream. PS, any commenters who call me a self-hating Jew, Israel is now a shanda fur die goyim. If you really are Jewish, pro-IDF folks, you know exactly what the phrase means. Read it and weep.

Hi I dream of Israel too,

You are so right about all of it. It really is upsetting because in order for Jewish people to always have a safe haven (which is why the UN championed the formation of the state after WWII) the Israeli government really must try extra hard to peacefully co-exist. Yitzhak Rabin was heroic and if only the current group of politicians would take their cues from him and continue his work then not only would Israel be safer but the whole world would be as well. The majority of Israeli and Palestinian people want peace. And both sides deserve this, both sides are human beings who bleed, feel pain and want only to be free and safe.

From what I heard about editorials in Israel, most papers slammed the Israeli government for their actions. So you and I are not the only Jewish people who find their actions repugnant. It’s really the American people who don’t get a balanced, even handed account of things who get upset about this. And a lot of Christians because Israel figures into their final days scenario. They need an Israel so Jesus can come back. But if Israel were to continue the way it was behaving (and I’m not sure what exactly is going on there right now, it’s been out of the news) it wouldn’t be long before one of its neighbors was pushed by its people to drop a nuke on them. Personally, I really don’t want that to happen! So I think if anything you are a self-loving Jew. You want Israel to be a better place with a better government, same can be said for being an American and pointing out our flaws so that we can fix them.

Oh, and your dream! I interpret it to mean that Israel is being self-destructive and putting the US at risk by their behavior. The fact that we made a show of trying to shoot them down, but it wasn’t in earnest, illustrates well, how we’ve dealt with the crisis going on in Gaza. I think your dream may also have a premonitory warning against terrorist backlash as well — the fact that it took place in New York where the biggest attack of the kind here happened. The dream was telling you that the actions of Israel aggressively endangered the US.

As for the reference to Senator Kennedy, perhaps because he’s a very liberal political figure and is in the process of dying, he too isn’t another reiteration of the theme of your dream. (Sorry for the unintended rhyme.) 

(And for the non-Jews if your interested in Yiddish here’s a link that explains the meaning of what I dream of Israel too wrote: http://www.treppenwitz.com/2007/03/a_shanda_fur_di.html)

Next from Tranquilsleep444:

tranquilsleep444

Just as you predicted, Denise. CNN’s leading headline right now is to brace ourselves for a rough week. From cnn.com: “Market braces for ‘terrible,’ ‘awful’ news” Investors this week will face a large batch of company report cards, in what is shaping up to be the worst quarter for corporate profits in a decade, CNNMoney reports. Investors will also digest reports on housing, consumer confidence and leading economic indicators. “Everyone is bracing for the GDP number to be pretty terrible, but the bigger surprise could come with the housing numbers, which are also expected to be awful,” one analyst says.

Hi Tranquilsleep44,

Hopefully you’re having some tranquil sleep because you either didn’t get involved in the stock market or pulled out in the nick of time! I didn’t see this story, but will look for it on line. All I’ve seen so far is mostly political news about the Republican block on Obama’s proposal which I talked a little bit about before news of this came out. It was in the inauguration chart that they would try to peck him to death with stupid details and find every little way they could to give him trouble. But then it doesn’t take a psychic or a chart to figure that one out! 

From the info you posted, chances are good a chill will be sent down the spine of investors and we will see another plunge. This is just logic. The astrology showed this period through March as being particularly bad. Hopefully, it will get better.

Maybe it will take a few months for Obama to get a stimulus package through the house and senate. Or perhaps there will be a series of bills that finally change things enough for us to start seeing that the worst of the storm finally starting to clear by then.

Let’s hope so!

From Hope and a Plan:

Hi Denise, Since a corporation that reincorporates as another incarnation changes its astrological fate could a married couple renew their vows and change their relationship dynamic? Thanks!

Hi Hope and a Plan,

The answer to that is yes, if the couple legally re-marries. If it’s just a renewal of vows then it will have a chart, but more related to the 5th house, or just a sort of renewal of the romance. It won’t change the chart of the marriage.

However if the couple re-marries then the new chart eclipses their old one, and sets the tone for their future together. It’s interesting because I’ve seen people get divorced after being married a long time, and then end up getting re-married. And they definitely have a different dynamic, although of course, being that they are the same people it doesn’t erase their past. Also when it comes to couples there is also a mid-point chart that wouldn’t change. So the psychological, personality stuff remains the same, but with the change in marriage time and new chart it effects the way the couple deals with those issues.

And from Marlene:

Marlene

Hi Denise, What will become of the GOP/Ultra Right Wingers over the next decade? Will they shrivel up and blow away, become more prominent or change for the better ? Will they realize their agenda turns the majority of people away? Will Limbaugh,Coulter, O’Reilly and their ilk become less relavant or better yet, marginalized?

Hi Marlene,

This is an excellent question and one I have been asking myself for awhile. I have the feeling that they will end up being marginalized, but not immediately. It will happen more over the next couple of years.  They will end up crawling back into the holes they slithered out of, but I doubt they will go peacefully. And their zombie followers will follow them back into the minority of voices.  

I think people will get tired of their B.S. and bashing. Many people who listen to these idiots are patriotic and want the country to do well. If they see the country going in a better direction I’m sure they will loose interest in the nonsense and ridiculous theatrics of Limbaugh, O’Reilley and Coulter. And those fans who were more on the fence will fall of and see the good in this very exceptional man we have as our current president. I also feel that the rise in more centrist and left leaning media will help restore balance to those who have been brain washed by the theatrics of the Karl Rove Neo-con playbook.

There are still so many great comments and questions to get to and I promise to do so.

Best wishes and many blessings to all,

Denise

From Zak:

Southern California has been experiencing a number of smaller earth quakes lately. Should we be concerned that a “big one” is coming?

I’ve been feeling a big earthquake coming but not right away, down the road several years, probably in the next 2-4. I have a feeling this one will be on the San Andres fault and will be between a 7.8 -8.5. It will be here in Southern California. I’d have to meditate on Northern CA, I’ve had the feeling the last few years that a big one would strike there first and then we’d have one a few years later here, but I’d have to be up there to really get a feeling for it and haven’t been in the hood for awhile. I’ll keep you posted as I feel it is getting closer.

And…

I just want to address the last post from Javahaaa first. 

It’s my belief that one can not think outside of the box if one lives inside it. There is a lot of debate about the genesis of the bible, both testaments. It is also true that depending on which side of the fence one is on, information can be read different ways. My research comes from sources outside the traditional framework of the church. I suggest reading Robert Graves very dense and scholarly book called, “The White Goddess.” There are many books I could recommend such as Merlin Stones, “When God was a Woman,” and the research done by Maya Gumbatis and so many others who came from either a feminist or archeological perspective to show the evolution and birth of the western religions. One can name all the types of trees in the forest and not see the actual forest. The details of how each testament was canonized is really not the point. The point is much bigger and if one gets lost in the minutia of information, then one losses the bigger perspective here.

I don’t want to keep going around and around about this, however, it’s not just the Burning Times, the Spanish Inquisition, the entire Middle-ages, the genocide of the Indigenous people from Australia where people were hunted for sport to our Native Americans who walked the Trail of Tears. One can say these atrocities aren’t related to western religion and I’m not being black and white about things here. I’m trying to make the point that the ideology of western monotheism (that means not just Christian but Judaism and Islam) is fundamentally toxic and why so many truly moral and decent people reject it in the form of atheism. It is toxic because these 3 religions who all believe in the same God, believe not just that their God is the only way, but that their interpretation of God is the only way. No one is more guilty (of the 3 of these western religions) then the Christians. And honestly I do think its fair to judge a religion based on its history, just as I would judge a person, an institution, a country or any ideology. An ideology has to work or it is useless to me. If a spiritual ideology is at the root of so much destruction, then one has to question if it embodies the core moral and spiritual values one has, and this is why so many of the most moral people I’ve met are atheists because they stop at the west and don’t bother researching any other form of spiritual teachings. And frankly they don’t need it. They have an intrinsic moral compass that they can always rely on, it’s called: compassion.

As I’ve said before in previous posts, the Creek never murdered the Cherokee because they believed in different Gods. They warred over resources and survival. I don’t think war is ever a good thing, but at least it makes sense to fight over scarce food sources, or over normal human stupidity. I’m sure they performed rights to their Gods before wars and begged for help. But they didn’t go into battle believing they had the divine right to kill anyone because that person was lesser than them. They went to battle for survival, to protect their homes, tribes and families; they went to battle to save face or to gain advantage. And they honored not only the people they killed in battle, but the animals they ate. Both with very elaborate rituals meant to release the souls of the dead to the next world. They would waste nothing of an animal, respecting the animals sacrifice for their survival. The structure of their psyches was shaped by an animate world were everything had value, everything was alive and part of the Creator/Great Spirit. And our consciousness is shaped by the idea that everything is inanimate except us which encourages a skewed narcissistic world view and one where we are superior to everything and can do as we please. We are man vs. nature. Indigenous cultures wouldn’t even know what that meant, it would be as absurd to them as buying land was to the Native Americans.

So I guess what I’m saying is we live in a western culture, and this ideology permeates not only those who are religious, but the way we govern, the structure of our government, our cities, our psyches. We are so enmeshed in these ideas that we can’t look at them objectively. We are literally living in a world created by a disassociation with nature, and look what we get, global warming, toxic waste everywhere. These are not coincidences, we have been at the control of world domination for at least the last 100 years and before us many other western Christian empires (the English, the Spanish, the Portuguese, the Holy Roman Empire).

2000 years of this ideology and we’re about to die off. And yet we’ve been on this planet for over 100,000 years (a conservative estimate) and probably more like 250,000 years. In 1 or 2% of our time here, with the western thought controlling and conquering the world we are on the verge of extinction.

Do you honestly believe this is a coincidence? Don’t you think there is something intrinsically wrong with the way we have been doing things? And don’t you think it’s a little deeper then just Capatalism? What spawned Capatilism? It was invented by the western mind. Would it have sprouted at all if we had remained in balance with the earth and continued to honor all living beings? I’m not saying our own greed and other monkey brain problems don’t get thrown into the mix here, and that we can’t be tricked by are darker natures no matter what period of history or culture, but we managed to keep these in check for a long time, granted not always perfectly, and by no means am I saying life was ideal for all before 2000 years ago, but we had one thing right and that was; we lived in harmony with nature and our environment and didn’t see ourselves as the only living creatures of value to the Creator here on earth.  

I do want to say the 3 major western religions have also brought a lot of good to the world and there are many amazing and exceptionally spiritually evolved souls who use this path toward enlightenment. I’ve met so many people who fit that statement, probably the vast majority, these are the people who despite what the doctorine teaches, choice to believe in other people’s right to free will. These are people who have an internal moral compass which tells them there is something intrinsically wrong with persecuting others for not believing as they do. These are not the martyrs or the saints or the exhalted by their religions. But in my opinion these are the most enlightened members, people who can pick the truth and metaphor out of a book that has been tweaked and translated and within its pages been used to demonize others (like the reference to the ancient Hebrew Goddess Asatarte as Asatorth a demon). The whole thing is so absurd, that God is jealous, punishing and that we are all born with original sin because Eve made a mistake several hundred thousand years ago. All one has to do to eliminate that ridiculous idea (clearly put in place to put the fear of God into people so they could be controlled) is to look at a newborn baby and see how innocent and vulnerable that little being is. If God were truly like the God of the bible then heaven would be a pretty horrible and dysfunctional place. It would be like living with your psycho alcoholic dad on a bender. I really don’t feel God is anything like He/She is portrayed in the Old Testament. And after studying the Kaballah I don’t think any Rabbi does either. Just like most Priests loose their faith. The more one studies the good book, the more one sees the holes and looses faith. It seems the only people who can remain in those faiths are those who filter out the stuff that they intrinsically know doesn’t feel right. And there’s a lot of it in there. 

Here’s just a tiny example of the insanity in the 10 commandments:

 You shall not covet your neighbour’s house; you shall not covet your neighbour’s wife, or male or female slave, or ox, or donkey, or anything that belongs to your neighbor.

And then, huh?

I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of slavery;

So being a slave isn’t good, but owning one is A-OK? As long as you don’t covet your neighbors slave then we’re cool. What? That’s just ridiculous.

And that’s just a little tiny mini-quark sized fraction of an example from a cursory look at the 10 commandments. There are even more within the 10 commandments that are insane. 

Anyway, I want to let this go. So I’ve said my peace.

And as I’ve stated I believe any organized religion has the agenda to control people just as a government does. Within any organized religion however one will always find people who are truly spiritual and remarkable; those who use religion as a foundation for their spiritual connection, but are not enslaved by the literal words of their texts. 

P.S. It’s said that Mother Teresa lost her faith in God by the end of her life. This seems to be a common theme for people who are sticklers for the rules set forth in the bible. I think more people would be able to connect with their spirituality if they didn’t feel the only way to do it was through fear of God which is what the Old Testament is all about, and unfortunately it sets the foundation for the New Testament although Christ worked against it with his sermons. I do believe Christ was a remarkable teacher and holy person, I just don’t think he explained how to get from where most people are to where he was, very well. Although that’s what he wanted people to do when he said, “I am the way.” It’s my opinion, he didn’t mean worship me as God, he meant do as I do. I am your example, love everyone. And who could argue with that message?That’s the highest spiritual lesson we can possibly ascend to.

There’s a lot more to talk about including something Juno said about similar dreams. I’m noticing more and more patterns. Interesting that she had a dream about being at Disneyland because I actually took my daughter there for her 1st birthday about a week ago. Anyway, maybe we’ll all share some more simultaneous dreaming.

Best wishes and many blessings,

Denise

Clarification, and History…

I wanted to address this comment from Javahaa. 

javahaaa

Denise and readers, The two strains that began our nation were not ‘idealism’ and ‘religious zealoutry’. They were, in reverse order of importance, religion and capitalism. The earliest and larger settlements , like Jamestown, were capitalistic ventures, sponsored by specific British companies to seek new sources of revenue. Somehow, _that_ isn’t taught in elementary school. I’m no fan of religious zealoutry, but put blame where it is most due. By far, capitalism was the force behind slavery, not religion, and it was the force behind native genocide/displacement. Religion might have been used to buttress it (just as the money powers used it to dupe working/middle-class christians to start voting GOP in the 80s), but if it had not been an extremely profitable institution, it would have been dropped like a hot potato.

Hi Jahavaha,

I have to say that you are both right and wrong in that of course capatilism and greed are the real motivators behind the evils we have visited on other people and cultures. However if you look at the history of the Christian religion, it is blood soaked. One of the greatest genocides of all time was perpetrated by the Catholic church against “witches” and/or “pagans,” (exchange heathen here) most of these women (which turned out to be aproximitely 25% of all european women) were murdered during the burning times. And lets take the middle ages and the Spanish Inquisition where indescribable torture was visited on “witches,” “pagans,” and “heretics.” Granted the church benefited greatly from stealing the land from wealthy women land owners once their husband’s died and they had no protection and were suddenly pronounced “witches,” but people, the vast majority of people who participated in these atrocities believed they were doing God’s work. So to clarify, the people up top maybe motivated by greed, but the masses who do their bidding are motivated by fear.

And yes, religious zealots are to blame for murdering the “heathen,” Indians. Many if not all were motivated by greed, but they used their religion as an excuse, so I ask you what difference this makes? If a religious idealogy can be warped into a weapon of torture and war, is it truly spiritual? Eastern religions have never been used this way, nor did the “heathen,” Indians, or “pagans,” or “witches,” or anyone before the 3 major western religions popped up. I don’t think this is mere coincidence despite arguing with people who were of those religious persuasions for years, there is something intrinsically wrong with a religion that can be used to defile, destroy, murder, rape and torture others. Here’s what it is: Intolerance.

Yes, that’s right. When one believes that they alone have the only answer and control the only freeway to the Almighty, then arrogance, hypocracy and perversion are born. In all other religions (excluding the 3 major western ones) there is a belief that “all Gods are one,” meaning it doesn’t matter what your God looks like or what your religious system is, it’s all the same at the core and should be respected. Heck, in ancient times it was common for people to incorporate other Gods into their pantheon after visiting foreign lands, hence we have Jesus brought to Rome which is the birth place of the New Testament put together by the Roman emperor Constantine who adopted Christianity for its belief in one God for political reasons.

At the time Rome was split in 2, there was Rome and Constantinople, Constantine wanted a religion that reflected his belief that the state should be one unified body and thus gathered together a group of scholars to look over the letters that different Christian sects used in their house gatherings were they would worship. Each group had a different set of letters and interpretations of Christ. Actually, most of the first home churches were started by women, but anyway, up until Constantine the Christians were considered freaks and persecuted for their belief in just one living God who they claimed was the only way to heaven.

Unusual that the Romans persecuted them because historically this new brand of righteous religious zealot willing to be martyred and eaten by lions for angering the ancient Gods was not done before monotheism was introduced into the culture. Also, there may have been a back lash against the Christians as this religion came up while Rome was going down and some may have felt the old Gods were abandoning them for tolerating this group of people who wanted not just to co-exist with the old ways, but to overthrow the old ways and eliminate the old Gods. 

Anyway, Constantine’s scholars actually picked through the different writings attached to the house churches and put together the New Testament. Constantine of course ordered that the Christians stop being persecuted and publicly claimed to become a Christian although it is said that he never actually converted and was heard on his death bed calling to the old Gods. The people whom were closest to Constantine, his soldiers and advisors claimed he had stayed true to his original faith and had used monotheism as a justification for the unification of Rome. It wasn’t long after that Rome entirely fell apart.

In the 1980s papers from the original New Testament were carbon dated at between 50-300 years after the death of Christ. Most thought it closer to 300 years. Even the Catholic church acknowledges this fact. This is significant because even 50 years after His death much of what He did and said would have become legend rather than fact, like playing a really long game of telephone, some of his words and teachings could have been misconstrued, such as that He was the “only son of God,” even the King James version which some have suggested takes liberties with interpretations, He actually never calls himself anything, but the “son of man.”

Since Rome was in desperate need of a saviour and the idea of a living God was very much a part of the culture, this interpretation of Christ’s teachings could be very wrong. Imagine living in a world where the Emperor is a God. Well, some Jewish guy who has some great spiritual ideas really wouldn’t cut it, hence this weird paganization of Christ could have happened. He had to be a living God for that religion to take hold in Rome.

So he may have said he was the only son of God, his Jewish followers may have believed he was the Messiah or just an amazing prophet and wise man, we don’t know for sure because so much of the truth was lost by no one during his lifetime, not him or his immediate flock, writing anything down when it actually happened.

Hope that clarifies things a little.

Best wishes and many blessings,

Clarification, and History…

Obama’s 2nd Oath

I ran a chart for the 2nd oath taken by Obama. However, according to the post by Hopeandaplan, legally Obama became president at noon on the 20th. It seems this would be a chart related to how his neigh sayers and enemies will deal with him over the next 4 years. I think this because it was only for them that this second oath took place, so that no one could claim that because the oath was flubbed it didn’t count. Plus the justice who flubbed the oath was someone whom Obama had opposed. 

So let’s look at it and see.

picture-10With Mercury ruling the chart due to the Virgo ascendant and it being Mercury retrograde, which is probably why this happened to begin with (if something legal occurs during Mercury retrograde it inevitably has to be redone or if one goes on a trip during Mercury retrograde it means you will return to that place again later so it’s not always a bad thing), but getting back to the point, Mercury is in Capricorn in the 5th. I’d say there will be a lot of criticism and judgement from the other side about how to deal with the stock market and the financial disaster we’re in.

Be prepared to hear a lot of dramatic exaggeration of how his plan will ruin everything if put into place (by the Republicans) with Mercury being in the 5th house.  There will be an unfair amount of expectation for Obama to be perfect, and his critics will be very nitpicking and harsh with Saturn in Virgo in the 1st house. Expect his greatest criticism to come from the fiscally privileged with Moon in Sagittarius. Those corporations who have shipped jobs over seas, taking them off American soil. This could be because of new laws Obama will try to put in place making it difficult, if not impossible, for companies to exploit developing nations in leu of paying a proper wage to the American worker and keeping jobs here.

With Uranus and Venus conjunct in Pisces in the 7th house squaring the Moon in the 4th and opposing Saturn in the 1st, the loss of jobs, money, and passing of new laws pertaining to work, health-care, public service and  the real estate market means richy rich isn’t going to be pleased. There will be some real reform coming from an idealistic compassionate bent with Uranus conjunct Venus in Pisces meaning the Obama administration won’t have the motto, “greed is good,” but rather a motto of, “lifting up your brother, lifts all humanity.” Usually, selfish, greedy people don’t really dig this, too much, and they will be ravenous dogs picking at every tiny little thing they can find to try and show some sort of hole in his ideals.But I don’t think they’ll get far.

The public is going to be overwhelmingly with Obama, all that Aquarius in the 6th house of the regular working person means he will appeal to their issues and needs. He will do a lot to help those people. Also this chart reflects the reform of the health care system coming in his first term of office.

My feeling is Obama will be like Reagan in that any dirt thrown his way will just blow back on those throwing it. He is definitely the man for this big job, and the hope he has inspired alone is worth so much after 8 years of utter storming despair under the Bush administration’s fear and spy tactics. It’s as if we just broke down the Berlin wall again. The last 8 years were as close as we’ve come so far to a Plutocracy.

As a person who was born in the late 60s, this current America seems to be the direct logical step toward the future I was promised as a kid. The idealism, enlightenment and humanitarianism of that time has come to fruition and feels like a road that one side of us have been walking since this country began. On the other side of that is the old aristocracy, the Queen’s subjects who came over with their Manifest Destiny, murdering the Native Americans, trading slaves and genuinely feeling they were better than everyone else because they were more prosperous.

America it seems has this double, almost schizophrenic personality, the one of Thomas Paine, full of idealism, humanitarian outcry, a desire for personal freedom, a belief in intrinsic rights of mankind and unshakable faith in the goodness of the human heart. And the other religious zealot side, and not just any kind of religious zealot, but the kind who actually believe they are so much better than everyone else, and their religion is so righteous, that God has given them the right to enslave, steal, lie, cheat and murder “heathen” Native Americans. Whole villages of Native Americans were murdered and by accounts horrendous war crimes committed such as cutting off Native American women’s breasts and throwing them around as a game and raping and murdering both women and children.

This unabashed, disgusting, grotesque narcissistic imperial mind set is the shadow side, the one we don’t teach to our children in school, but it lives on in people like Ann Coulter, Bill O’Reilley, Rush Limbaugh. These vile bottom feeders dig deep into the well of the shadow side of the American psyche, playing the strings of racism, hatred, fear and stupidity.

In my lifetime I have witnessed the tug of war between our better “angels” as Lincoln said and our inner demons. We’ve ping ponged from darkness to light and from light to darkness with the push of a chad. When I was younger I was naive enough to believe that people were becoming more enlightened, and the world was going to just keep getting better and better all the time. But it isn’t that simple, we will always have to fight off are dark side. We must always be vigilant against those who preach hate and masquerade it with long blond hair and a tight mini-skirt up to the Va-Jay-Jay. Those like Ann Coulter who want everyone else to follow the rules in her head, except that she won’t live by them because she’s special. If she were so conservative then where is her husband and 15 kids? I’ve heard it said in passing several times that she believes in “free love,” meaning she likes to sleep around with people who can make her more money. But if she’s so Christian and pure, then doesn’t this go against her belief system? Why people buy her books or pay attention to anything she has to say is beyond me. I wish people would give her the treatment she deserves, silence and a turn of the back. She isn’t worth the touch of my fingers on the keyboard.

Enough rambling….

Best wishes to all,

Denise
