The Patterns Are Becoming Clear…

I’ve been thinking obsessively the past month about the economy and the danger signs I saw back in the spring about another economic meltdown. Because I’m not an economist I wasn’t exactly sure how or why this would occur. A feeling and some astrological back-up to that intuition was all I had to go on. But patterns I’ve been seeing have started to become clearer about how and why the breakdown will occur. The pieces: 1. Because the US (and the world) has been so divided – left and right – the 2008 meltdown was only given a band-aid remedy. After the crash of 1929, and the subsequent Great Depression that ensued, massive sweeping changes were made to protect the US from another financial meltdown. These measures where based on a relatively simple principle most kids learn subconsciously from the game of Monopoly. Money could not be coagulated into the hands of a very few or it would choke the entire economy. This idea was worn down over time by the false equivalency to communism. Communism of course was equated with the enemy and everything evil. Generations of Americans grew up under the shadow of nuclear annihilation under the threat of the Communists. While the enmity was real the understanding of their alternate system was flawed for a number of reasons. The first being the faultiness of the Soviet’s governance of that system. Allowing a few people to control all the resources (in their case the government – in our case corporations and wealthy plutocrats) led to exactly what one would expect a corruption of power. I don’t need to repeat the adage we all know so I won’t. During most of the mid-century however we did not have “pure capitalism” in fact we had a system much closer to Europe’s because FDR played a huge hand in resetting up these countries constitutions after WWII. For all intents and purposes we had a socialist democracy where their was a social net set-up for the poorest people. The wealthy paid 90% tax, unions were strong and protected the rights of workers and college was close to free (and for many Pluto in Leo’s their college loans were never repaid – making their education a gift from the US government.) The economy from the end of WWII until the 1970s was stable and incredibly strong. And then the unraveling began. Greed. The wealthy got tired of being merely wealthy among the throngs of upstart middle-classers. That wasn’t a high enough place to be I guess just wealthy – not enough one has to not just have most of the nuts but all the nuts – mad squirrel disease as I like to call it – the pathological need to acquire everything. It simply wouldn’t do to live in a society where everyone was doing really well and perhaps your osn or daughter would go to harvard next to a factory workers son and then fall in love. Dear me the entire social fabric was falling apart due to those scary middle-class hippie kids who had no regard for the social order. Conservatives decided to fight back. It was a double edge insult to their lifestyle and threatened everything they valued. Hence the fight to come after the glow of the 1960s. But back to… The failure of both systems – Communism and Capitalism – greed. Neither take this fundamental human pathology into account. And although the 80s tried to sell us on the idea of greed being good and a pure marketplace where corporations would magically police themselves – anyone who has even the tiniest bit of street smarts and/or understanding of human psychology knows that a fox should never be guarding a hen house as the old saying goes. We can’t expect to put a freshly baked box of cookies next to a hungry toddler – leave him to guard it indefinitely and expect to come back to find none missing. Especially if we continue to do this and there are no repercussions when the toddler starts taking them. Eventually the kid doesn’t think about it anymore and it just becomes a given that stealing from the pile is part of what you do. Taking regulations away and dismantling unions allows corporations and wall street to go unchecked. Just like our Democracy has been set-up to have checks and balances (which we are now seeing needs some modern adjustments) so power was never put entirely in one individual or groups hands for fear of corruption – the same holds even more true for the resources of the earth. Historically those who control the resources control the power. We saw the end of soviet communism and thought we had “won.” But in reality the very thing that crushed their system will crush ours but it will come from the private side rather than the government side since our government has become a side show to the real power allowed to run amok via the Supreme Court’s rulings on everything from not counting votes to Citizens United to their ruling on the most recent Hobby Lobby case allowing corporation shareholders’ religious preferences to trump everyone else in the corporation – whereby creating a surf-like relationship between corporate heads and their employees. (If you look at it ideologically without the divisive sunglasses of pro-life vs. pro-choice – one can clearly see it as a crack in the protection of the individual’s rights vs. corporate rights – there are more cases than this which I could point to having to do with intellectual property that also give more latitude to corporations and less to private individuals so it’s not just this case I’m going on here but that’s a whole other post.) I used to refer to the pathological sort of greed (found in the one percent of the human population) as “mad squirrel disease.” But I’ve come to realize it’s actually more sinister than that just look at the Koch Brothers. Now let me break it down in real time rather than history: 1. We have a low wage service based economy. Since Nixon opened trade relations with China the lions share of jobs shifted from factories to service as China took on manufacturing. With the advent of the Internet the 1990s economy had the advantage of a strong intellectual property economy fortifying the service economy. Things like Napster started a trend toward an everything-is-free trend which eroded intellectual property for everyone except large corporations and eventually led the feed cycle to an almost exclusive service based economy. Other than construction, the small manufacturing sector, small percentages of actual farmers (2%), nearly all jobs are related to serving whether that is being a doctor, teacher, law enforcer, IT specialist, waiter, clerk, accountant, real estate agent or financial broker – these jobs only exist to serve. The safest jobs during a major downturn are those connected to the community like police officer and perhaps even doctor due to need. But a serious downturn or depression would ELIMINATE the need for nearly ALL OTHER JOBS. Food, shelter and basic needs are all people spend money on in a major downturn or depression. This would choke people’s ability to spend on anything except the necessities which we are seeing in slow motion right now despite all the BS about the stock market. The reason the low wage part is such an aggregant (CEOs and wealthy 1 percenters take notice) is the inability for people (which is a huge percentage of people) to buy goods and services and the inevitability of that huge percentage of people to slip into abject poverty and out of the economy completely if a major downturn/depression were to occur. Now that the social net is broken the devastation of economic free fall would be truly horrifying. 2. We thought we solved the problem. The 2008 meltdown was an opportunity to right the boat but we didn’t take it. We put up a slipshod band-aid that will eventually bleed out and slip off. The bail out was the right thing to do at the time BUT IT SHOULD HAVE BEEN FOLLOWED UP BY REAL REFORM! The banks should have had to pay back the money with interest and they should have reinstated old monopoly regulations and broken them apart. In fact all the mergers and acquisitions and centralizing of corporate power should be reversed if we are to survive a global financial meltdown. The reason being if all the dinosaurs are roped together and one falls down – they all fall down. If one dinosaur falls down and dies, well it just goes back into the life cycle. An economy can happily recover after the death of one giant. It can even thrive as its broken apart into smaller pieces and redistributed but if the thing is so massive as to encompass the earth and all its people, well, then it’s not survivable. Instead of diversifying everything and locking down the hatches by cracking down on criminal behavior and kicking Wall Street out of the country’s financial governance, we gave the dinosaur a big meal, slapped a bandage on him and ignored the whole thing. In the mean time the country became extremely divided and entropy set into politics. Anything that could or should have done couldn’t be done. Alas we have a serious problem about to unfold. 3. Global connectivity: that which has been sown must be reaped… We have a global economy. Corporations are making record profits connecting to markets everywhere. Yeay! If your a shareholder or CEO of one of those corporations. Well, at least that has been the case. All those new people around the world mean new costumers right? Right? Yeah and new liabilities. Just as we tanked the world economy with our housing bubble, guess what can happen if theirs a bubble in say China? Hmm… coincidentally their is a bubble in China a HUGE BUBBLE. Two words. Ghost Cities. Heard of them? This bubble will make our bubble look like we did it with a piece of chewing gum. Terrifying when it bursts and it will. The epicenter of this seems extremely volatile when I tap into this I get very scared. It feels like intense chaos, violence and its tentacles are everywhere. The growing middle-class in China had no other thing to invest their newly won money in except real estate so… they built whole cities, infrastructures, shopping malls, parks, malls where no human (other than the builders) ever set foot and still haven’t set foot. They have a unique conundrum. Those who can afford to live in these new cities live elsewhere thereby displacing the poor villagers who had lived on that land and since these cities have no industry (although their are buildings there to house industry) no humans come to live in them. They are like bodies without souls. Dead. Still born without hope of life. The final component: 4) War All the conflicts going on around the world are heating up in key places. More than just losing the war in Iraq and Afghanistan – both unwinnable from the get go – we’ve shown the world we no longer have any moral authority (think torture and blowing off the geneva convention rules without any public prosecutions.) We also have a broken military unable to take on anything else after a decade of war. We have been left weak, morally, physically, economically and spiritually. Our own land torn apart by the left – right divide which has only served to hand over more power to the few leaving the masses poorer and fighting one another for scraps without a real understanding of how we’ve all been hornswaggled. So what does this mean for us? It means a real correction. We didn’t head our chance at a warning. The 2008 warning shot was forgotten as soon as the ringing in our ears wore off. It’s unfortunate that we have to learn the hard way but I’m very afraid we will have to learn the hard way. While I don’t think what hits us will look exactly like the last Great Depression it will be close. This will be the second dip we’ve all been waiting for. And it will require REAL CHANGES. Let’s hope that the next president has the ovaries to get something done. Many blessings, Denise

 

*Update I just saw a comment from Marie about a Forbes article related to this topic. I didn’t include the issues they address in it in my assessment but everything stated there is definitely another factor that I hadn’t thought about except for its relation to consumer debt. The stock market, in my opinion, has been running on the fuel of its own farts for as long as I can remember. It’s a closed loop that has taken off from any grounding it once had in reality. Check out the link she posted.

Reality Check

I’m not sure if I posted my assessment of the US chart and the transits that would hit it in May. Well, they were not good. In fact as I may have stated early that these aspects will change the way we ourselves. 

I really wish people would stop underestimating the new leader of North Korea. I don’t believe he is bluffing. I don’t want to say much about this but read the comments Zoma made a month or more ago.

And BTW Ashley Judd go and run against Mitch McConnell. You WILL WIN by a LANDSLIDE! GO for it ASHLEY! Really don’t give up because of all this. Steal yourself – be strong. The world could use someone who understands what it means to be a real human being with real feelings. We need more people who have compassion and understanding.

I’m going to look at comments and get to the next session ASAP. I just am in the process of a lot of things and unfortunately my kid got sick for a while.

Best wishes to all and many blessings,

Denise

Reality Check

Dreams and Zoma Speaks

This was the first session I did a few days ago after having a lot of uneasiness about the economy and other issues. One being a series of dreams I had in the late 1980s and early 1990s about a nuclear bomb being dropped on Los Angeles. These dreams were hyper real and really scared me. As predictive dreams generally are multi-layered so were these dreams. There were things that came to pass in these dreams that were exact matches with the period of time of the riots and subsequent fires here during the early 1990s. I had hoped that was all it was and many psychics I talked to told me that my dreams were just exaggerated “mind blowing” predictions about the riots as there were a lot of cross over – even the names of streets and specific details however I was uneasy about this and talked to one of my spiritual teachers. He felt, at the time, it was probably metaphorical however a few years ago just before he died he looked at me and said, “Denise, I’ve been thinking a lot about those dreams that a nuclear weapon hit Los Angeles. I have a feeling they may not have just been metaphorical.” I nodded but put it out of my head at the time. Of course I really wanted them to be metaphorical and interestingly his words began to haunt me in the past couple of years. I mean really haunt me however I haven’t had anymore dreams but I did have a very disturbing event happen.

My father who had been coming round (in spirit – he’s been dead since I was 10) suddenly stopped. Before he did however he left me with the image of him on my sofa crying inconsolably. To say this was disturbing is an understatement. I have struggled and begged and prayed to understand why he left me only with this last message. It was as if something in the world had turned and it could no longer be undone – whatever it was, was too big for me alone to fix it.

Soon after December 21, 2012 when the new Aeon began and I could finally feel the truth of what the future was rather than all the anxiety clogging it, I started feeling that indeed a great darkness was upon us. The novel I had written back in 1999-2000 and that I finally got round to taking to a conference in 2007 (when it won an award) seemed to be as true as ever. I had set the time frame for the 2030s (a guess a psychic metaphor) after a world war and many economic and natural disasters. In chapter 3 New York is hit by a major hurricane that all but destroys the city. In it the plutocratic (false theocracy) is actively engaged in doing nothing to prevent the destruction of the masses. Yes, they are evil, but I never go so far as to say they are actively involved in murdering humanity although it seems there are current conspiracy theorists who would do so. I will actually be doing another edit of this book and make it available soon. Agents I talked to told me to mollify the book, make it less dark, etc. But I couldn’t or the whole point of the book would be missed. I was given the information and crafted into a story to effect readers in order to change the future events I saw unfolding. When I wrote it I knew it was too far in the future for people to get and now I hope it is not too late. So I will hurry and when I finish I will let everyone know where to get it.

Now, I was freaking out about my weird feelings and the very horrible aspects I saw coming for the US so I talked to Zoma about it. Here’s the transcript:

3-12–2013:

Q:  ZOMA what will become of this economy?

A: It will take a long time to recover, much longer than anyone realizes. Somewhere around twenty to thirty years and even then it will be a very different economy one rooted in different values and currency. A currency of bartering, one less abstract to the average person only the wealthy will maintain the abstract systems such as the stock market and corporate finances. For the average person these abstractions will become more and more distant and the amount of money needed to become involved in these systems will become prohibitive to what once was the middle class.

———————— End Zoma

I want to say I have been actively working on trying to change my life to fit what I see coming. I advise those of you who also have odd feelings to do the same. Follow your gut and of course if your question can help all of us please ask Zoma. My husband, after hearing me rail on about all this stuff, started doing a bunch of research. Unfortunately for both of us what he has found only seems to support the information I have gotten through second sight.

Many blessings to you and pray for yourself and all the good people and beings of this world,

Denise

Fiscal Cliff

Doing Coast to Coast brought a lot of conservative readers to this blog. I want to clarify for you that I was raised in a conservative family, in a conservative neighborhood and I am married to a man whose parents are also conservatives. When I’m talking about Republicans I am not talking about people who are the voter class – I’m talking about the leadership class. It’s my experience that people are people and when given the hard truth do the right thing no matter what label they may take on when they go into a voting booth.

I know Republican voters believe in hard work and personal responsibility – so do liberal people – the big difference is liberal/progressives believe there are some people who can’t pull themselves up by their own bootstraps not because they are lazy, but because circumstances are too great and overwhelming to do so alone. I would really encourage everyone to watch the Ken Burns documentaries on PBS about the dust bowl. The dust bowl happened in a very maverick part of the country – where people believe in personal responsibility and were and still are very hard-working and believe in contributing to society. However the scope of the problem (and seriously just look at pictures and you’ll see how enormously devastating this ecological disaster was year after year for about a decade) was just too enormous for any one family no matter how big their extended family. It was as if every other day a major hurricane or tornado devastated the region – this went on for a decade. These dust storms were miles high and would drop 3 feet of earth over everything making all farming impossible. It was so enormous that the storms actually dropped earth from Kansas and Oklahoma in Washington DC and New York City. The government stepped in to save lives – children and elderly people were dying of “dust pneumonia.” The story is almost too much to bear but I suggest people take a look at this because the parallels of the Great Depression and our situation with the Great Recession are enormous.

So for those who think I want only blessings for people of like mind that is more than insulting it’s insane. However I am equally insulted when we have Republican politicians who want to take away benefits to Veterans, raise the age of social security, take money and medicare away from the elderly and make the middle class pay an extra 2000 a year in taxes when they are struggling like never before. All so the wealthy one percent (who pay less than anyone else in taxes) can keep their tax breaks. It’s disgusting.

The SIN of AVARICE and GREED are at the heart of these ideals. These are not Christian values and they are not Spiritual values which is why I am against them – that is why I take issue with these spiritual diseases that I see as eating away at the fabric of our world. These evils have somehow (in the past 30 or so years) turned from being society’s seeing Greed as despicable  and shameful to a virtue.

Well, I want to remind everyone GREED IS NOT A VIRTUE! In no religious text and on no spiritual path is GREED considered anything but one of the roots of EVIL  And what we have seen during the Bush jr. years was a ramping up of this disease to the point where we the average American tax payers are being asked to pick up the tab for the frat party on Wall Street. Lots of people got rich scamming the middle class and the poor. And now we are being asked AGAIN to pay for IT! TWICE – seriously how is that good for anyone? Except the shameful few.

So now onto my prediction about the fiscal cliff.  Democrats will stay firm and there will be a period of inaction until Republicans are forced to go ahead with the program. Republicans will come to realize if they stick to their guns there will be civil unrest and if they keep with their ridiculous “plans” they will not just be killing their future careers, but putting the nail in the coffin of their party for years to come. Which honestly I do not want to happen.

Democracy needs a viable two party system – but Republicans are making a huge mistake playing to the one percent and then using trickery to try and cover their tracks. The cat is out of the bag now and continuing on this path is suicidal for their party. This will have a long-term effect on the political system and will put them into the position of being a very small minority party for years to come. My compliment to them presently for at least honestly showing their hand instead of hiding behind the BS “Trickle Down Economics,” stuff. At least they are clearly showing that they have no compassion for people who were either born after 1960 or born into families without an express lane to Harvard or Yale.

The biggest disgrace in my opinion is starting two wars, destroying hundreds of thousands of lives, forever injuring those who served along with their families not to mention the highest cost – all the people who had to die for what? Both our troops and all the innocent civilians caught in the crossfire of the Bush/Cheney oil grab that turned into a reckless pointless war which the Bush/Cheney administration lied us into.

All of us whether we want to admit it or not actually rely on systems to help us evolve whether that is the family system, the educational system or in the worst case scenarios people who are forced to take help from the government. No one wants to be in that position despite the propaganda of “welfare queens,” welfare has been reformed so that people can’t stay on it for any length of time. Not to mention if you have ever known anyone who has had to take government assistance (which includes social security, disability, medicare, food stamps, unemployment) they do it because they need to generally they aren’t proud of it. Many people are embarrassed about having to use food stamps, or get help of any kind.

Everyone wants to be independent and we must remember that if we are to be a “Christian Nation,” as is the herald of the Republican party, then we must actually posses those Christian values. If you have any doubts about what they are just ask yourself, “Would Jesus walk past a poor distraught person without helping him? Would Jesus want to rob the poor to give to the wealthy?” No. That’s the answer. If you are a Christian I can’t see how the current Republican plutocratic platform in any way conforms to your values. Either the Republican leadership needs to change or those who are staying loyal to a party they once believed in need to take a closer look at what is actual and factual and see if it squares with their real values. I contend it does not.

I do not think that 98% of Republican voters would vote that way if all the facts were broken down without the incendiary rhetoric that is used to make the leadership appear to be in the same camp as the good people who vote for them.

Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Happy Yule and anything and every other holiday I am forgetting or don’t know about – Have a great holiday season.

Many blessing to all,

Denise

Fiscal Cliff

Truth To Power

When we stand together and use our voices they can not be silenced no matter how many voting machines they rig, or voters they scam off the rolls. I was never nervous about this election until I went to our polling place and found out how crazy things were going down there. Then I worried (human fear not intuition fear) that somehow fate would be thwarted in some evil Faustian deal with the devil made by Romney.

This election was settled by Spirit in the first days of December of 2011 as I posted back then and everything Spirit told me (I don’t know what else to call it) came to pass exactly. Now I know why my Aunt was laughing her head off and saying that I would be right. She knew I would be freaking out like everyone else. She tried to calm me but I am human and a Romney/Ryan presidency would be a disaster for the world – seriously.

Anyway I am SOOO Happy that the right man is in the job and that the Universe is  moving forward as it should – that no amount of money or powerful idiots could change what was meant to be. It is because of us – the people who saw through all of the lies and deception. I have never been prouder of the US not because Obama won but because people GOT IT!

Thanks to all who have participated and to all who have been reading my frantic freak-out blogging.

Peace, abundance and blessings to all,

Denise

And thanks to my deceased Aunt Doris and Grandmother Minnie for appearing yesterday in an effort to reassure me (and my readers) once and for all despite knowing it wouldn’t work.

Truth To Power

The Last Word on the Election

I had a ghostly visit ironically on All Souls Day – November 1st. I don’t usually have these sort of visits. And they had sort of died down – no pun intended there. I can tune into spirits when asked, but it was never my thing. And it wasn’t until about 6 months before I got pregnant that I started seeing ghosts just pop in without any reaching out on my part or being in a haunted house, etc.

It started at the Grove (of all places) a busy outdoor mall in Hollywood that my deceased father appeared next to me. I was sitting down waiting for my husband who was shopping inside (talk about role reversal) and just relaxing. All of a sudden I felt someone pull up the chair next to me. When I turned to see who it was – there was no one there, but I felt my father’s presence and he materialized. We had a nice conversation and he continued to follow me around for several years. He died when I was ten and I’d never been contacted by him before so it was really a major surprise to say the least. I asked why he was there (turns out he was there to deliver my kid from the other side and warn me that I might die but that’s another story).

So back to my main story; the ghosts were around for the year before my kid and a couple of years after. It had been a while since I had an unexpected visit. But to my surprise I was listening to NPR and all the back and forth about how tight the election was – how it might take weeks to get a count, etc. And I just was thinking to myself I didn’t believe it at all.

I got out of my car and saw my aunt. Actually an old conservative Republican in life but now a much happier, more relaxed spirit. She was laughing and told me that indeed I was going to turn out to be right. And the part of the statement I had heard that “Obama is going to win the election but it’s going to be a real nail bitter even though it shouldn’t be,” the part about “it shouldn’t be,” always confounded me a bit. Did they mean that Romney was such a lesser man, or it wasn’t in Romney’s fate or that shenanigans were going to make the race tighter than it actually was? I really couldn’t tell and since that statement I had been trying to decode it. I finally came to the understanding that it was all of the above and to this my Aunt affirmed as did her mother (my grandmother) whom I had never met in life. They were both giddy and excited about all of it and some other things that they were vague about that seemed to be related to me and my family, but anyway – just VOTE and remember you count. And WE the PEOPLE will win this time.

Our next goal will making sure it stays that way. I guarantee you Obama’s win will push the zealots on the right to even greater extremes and after exploiting all the racism – next will come the intense misogyny and attacks on women’s rights. However the women of this nation will not go quietly into the night. I am starting to believe that the discovery of Eris will be about this very thing – feminist revolutions due to the attempts of those in power who will continue to try to control and take women’s rights away. Problem will be for them – we won’t go quietly into the night and if anything this very issue could be the impetus for the next wave of revolutions – guerilla style. I will save all the visions I’ve been having about this subject for after the election.

ERIS is here and she isn’t going away.

For now we will enjoy our victory – those who want a level playing field and democracy for all.

But always remember how fragile our democracy has become and how easily corrupted. It has only been because of the work of some decent people in government that we don’t live in a theocratic plutocracy (BTW Romney would pretty much cement that path having been a BISHOP in his church and a solid Plutocrat.) It will be vitally important now more than ever that PEOPLE really be INFORMED and know history, educate themselves and stay active in politics or we will be conceding our nation to the corrupt and all that has been positive about our legacy will be seen through the dirty glasses of a very dark history.

Best to all and to all a great voting day!

Denise
