Again sorry posts have been patchy, my whole family has been sick with a cold, that’s what happens when you have a little one. Anyway, just wanted to update everyone on some stuff. First I’ll give some background so all of what I’m about to write makes sense. When I was in my early 20s working as a psychic I met another psychic who was interested in channeling. She somehow got me to try it and I ended up contacting and communing with a being who called itself Zoma. I just want to remind everyone here that I was not raised in any religious tradition except for a minor stint with Catholicisms shortly after my father died (he was Jewish.) My father was also 24 years older than my mother and most of his family was dead by the time I was born. My first cousins are literally twice as old as I am but anyway I digress…
So it turned out Zoma was very accurate (this is where I got my wordpress handle as you can see) remarkably so. Zoma could answer just about any question directly with specific and very detailed information. There were two occasions I remember most because I ended up discussing them with the querants later which didn’t always happen. Most often the information was written down by another psychic and if told an hour later about what had occurred I couldn’t remember much about it. It wasn’t as if I was in a full trance, but a semi-trance where I was able to interact with Zoma and ask questions in my mind, Zoma would then give the information through me, telling me the things to say. One of the two instances that stuck with me was a woman who had a lot of emotional troubles, she asked Zoma if she had experienced a violent crime. Zoma answered yes, described the area, gave the proximity of the town it took place in to her home and the name of the street it took place on. I remember this because the woman despite the accuracy of the information (which she verified) still wasn’t sure as she had blocked the incident out of her conscious mind. The second was a question about Atlantis from a fellow psychic (a subject I knew nothing about and had no interest in). The psychic asked where Atlantis had been and Zoma gave a location and the name of a ruler. She subsequently did research and found this ruler referred to in an ancient text and reference to the exact area Zoma had claimed Atlantis had been in the same text. That blew me away not only because I had no idea about the subject, but the name of the ruler was very odd and complicated which Zoma correctly identified.
OK, fast forward to the internet – the Zoma sessions were done in the early 90s before the Internet was accessible to anyone outside academia. I decided to look up Zoma and up came information about an ancient Jewish scholar/philosopher named Ben Zoma in the second century. I thought that was very strange as he (from what I could tell was pretty obscure) and I had of course never heard of him, but again the genetic or Jungian idea of the ancestral memory thing came to mind.
To make a long story shorter I have decided to begin working with Zoma again after many years, not because of Zoma, but because the group of psychics I was teaching to channel began to try and make me into some kind of “spiritual leader” which I am morally opposed to for a variety of reasons. It’s my feeling we all have the answers inside of us if we listen close enough, people can teach people things, but it then becomes the job of the student to take up the mantel and find their own path. I do not like deification or being put in the position of power or responsibility that someone with that title inccures, so I backed away from it. I also was something like 23 years old and not ready to take on anything close to that. I also saw some of the people I had taught abuse their power by lying about what Zoma was saying to control other people and get them to do things they wanted them to do and although it was mostly inoquous, it made me very upset and crossed a line I couldn’t be part of.
So recently I have enlisted Zoma’s help to redefine the astrological system which I feel is in need o an overhaul as many things are no longer timing out and I can feel we are in the midst of a paradigm shift. I believe this is why all the new planets have been discovered and rather than hodge podging it together I’m trying to see if there is a deeper and more meaningful way of getting to all the new astronomical data and its application to us here on earth. At some point I may ask you to participate in my research and subsequently you will receive a free reading via the blog. It will of course all be private and your identity hidden. If you are interested I will make an announcement in the next few months for those of you who wish to participate, so look for that. I will need feedback to help tweak the system, so those who participate will play a vital role in the creation of this new system of divination.
I want also to qualify that I am not New Age and my interaction with Zoma comes from a much older tradition of shamanism. My earliest training was in the ancient shamanistic practices of the Celts and their interaction with other dimensional beings known as the Sidhe or as the Faery people. I was trained in my late teens by a High Priestess who came from that tradition and later worked with a man who was trained in “High Magic” in the tradition of the ancient Sumerians mixed with study of the kabbalah and rituals of the Goetia. My teacher was into talking to demons on occasion, but I personally was not, and only participated in angelic and Enochian invocations. I have never engaged in harming, binding, hurting, manipulating or impressing my will upon others through magic – this in my opinion is the definition of what is termed “black magic.” I only engage in discourses and getting information. healing (if the injured wants the help) and self-improvement through my personal connection with the divine. Having clear and distinct moral boundaries when dealing with supernatural power is essential to keeping sane and free of negative karma.
