When We Endure Harsh Situations, We Need to Look at Them Again!
When I see the Heirophant or Master Teacher in a reading, I am like uh oh, this client is in the process of a learning experience or breaking up some old habits. It’s not my job to acknowledge that the person has been screwed over, but to help them understand how to reach a higher state because of it. I know that I have to gingerly relay this information because when our minds, bodies and emotions decide erroneously that it needs something, it is difficult to pull ourselves out of that slump…..difficult, but do-able!
What are My Teachers Really Trying to Show Me?
I think back over some of my teachers and I am not referring to the ones in secondary school or college. I am talking about those souls who agreed to come down here with me to teach me about pain (healing), abandonment (acceptance and overcoming the fear of solitude), rejection (self-worth), etc. These lessons seem hard and long, but look at the new soul that emerges, and the funny thing about it is when we get the lesson, we sometimes even become friends with those harsh teachers…lol!
I know things may seem challenging sometimes, but the key is to look deeply into the situations, deeply at ourselves, and understand why we have elected to draw this lesson into our lives. There’s always a reason.
We Ask for Many Things in Life, But What Do We Really Want?
We are going about our daily lives and so many things are available to us. We can easily peer into each other’s lives via social media, reality TV, global travel options, etc., and with so much to see, sometimes we think we want what others have, when perhaps we really don’t.
I have to admit that most times I have ever asked for something that I thought I wanted, when I received it, I wished I had never gotten it in the first place. Some ways to know what you really want is to go inside yourself for a week or two with as little external stimulation as possible. During this time, what appealed to you and what did you miss most?
Ask for only one thing at a time so you can focus your energy on one thing, but before asking for it, give it some thought to include how it will affect you, those in your inner circle, and your future self. Will it still be beneficial for you in 5 years, 10 years, etc.? Read up about it and check out what other people have to say who have it. Do you have the help around you to manage this thing? How will it affect your freedom and disposable income?
You can have what you want, but it is important for you to focus on one thing at a time to give it the energy it deserves, and to make sure it is truly a part of what YOU really want, despite what others have.
Deep Down Inside, Every Human Knows Earth Is Meant to be a Playground
I’m guilty as charged!
Mr. Wrong or should I say Mr. Wrongs are a few of the reasons why I have so much insight into other people’s issues….lol. Mr./Ms. Right, quite honestly, can be a bit boring, however Mr./Ms. Wrong gives us that elusive challenge for love that keeps our hearts pumping, our loins active and our minds completely engaged.
In many cases they are the masters of illusion and know how to pull the strings of our hearts — they learned how to do that during their childhoods when they discovered how to get away with doing more than a few incorrect things. But in any case, we love to love them because it hurts so good!
How to Stop Wanting What is Not Right for You
But, now you’re tired, and your heart has been pulverized one time too many! It’s become exhausting and you are finally ready for a love that invests into your soul, and does not just take away from it.
Just think about it for a second.
You love yourself…….now. No, I mean you really put yourself on a pedestal to the point where your subconscious is so connected to what is right for you, that you have developed an intuition for all that does NOT serve. You are strong and realize that you must keep foolery from your heart, and you KNOW only time can identify true frauds. Now with self-love like this, and a keen eye for details, how could you want, attract or settle for what’s wrong for you? Correct, you can’t!
It would be quite nice if everyone could take a basic Astrological course in grade school to at least understand their natal charts and how they may affect or be affected by others. Makes sense to me. However, even if it were the case, it is important to understand that astro influences do not control us, they just guide, aid, warn, foreshadow and provide current info. For example, it is possible for a well built car to speed against the wind current and to climb muddy mountains, however before the car is built, the engineers should understand the equations that must be solved so that the car can do all of the things they want it to do. Once the cars have been designed and built, drivers must read the manual to determine how to operate the car in order to do things like putting the car into 4-wheel drive.
Education Goes a Long Way
I am not talking about Liberal Arts, but about understanding people and how they tick. Better yet understanding how you tick so that you can be comfortable knowing, asking for and expecting what YOU want. If you have a good self-education, then you do not feel guilty turning down the wrong suitor because you clearly understand they just don’t fit the path you chose for yourself a long time ago! And that’s okay, because someone else wrote them into their own life plan.
It’s Not Just About the Sunshine or the Moonlight
Back in the ’70s the Jackson 5 performed a song called “Blame it on the Boogie”. It was about a person who had trouble getting his significant other’s attention because she preferred dancing. Pretty soon he got caught up in the swing of the boogie movement and lost himself as well. This happens all of the time and the Boogie is what I like to call “life”. Parental, environmental and peer influences change us along with Time. Time, not meaning linear time, but Time meaning the changing of life spaces and how the new circumstances within these spaces affect us.
There are not many who know how to use Astrology as the old Tibetan Masters who could describe how, when and where someone would arrive in their town, to include how they’d look and what they would say upon arrival. I am sure that the ability to read the charts in this way is due in part to the Akasha and intuition, however what is in the Akasha was written before Time, based on what you told it to record. I do not believe in predestination, but am sure we write our own tickets (with a tad of prompting from the Elders) so the natal chart is the printed ticket that will guide us, but which should also allow us room to evolve.
The next time you visit a Psychic or Clairvoyant, do not ask what ‘will’ happen. Ask where things are headed with the current actions you have taken and who are the players involved, then write your own ticket. The astral bodies are guides and reminds us what we agreed to and who the players are, to include Earth herself. So the next time you want to blame someone because you don’t like your ticket price or wording, think about the Jackson 5’s song lyrics:
Don’t blame it on the sunshine
Don’t blame it on the moonlight
Don’t blame it on good times
Blame it on the boogie (and if you are really daring, tweak that Boogie! 🙂

The First and Second Deaths
No, I am not talking about the book of The Revelations this time, just regular life and the situations it brings, which actually are sometimes like death. As usual, I’ll start with myself.
Even though I wrote the book Broken Heart (which was about my fourth or fifth death) I can honestly say that now I am in a much better place than where I was then, but I AM still evolving.
Today a situation occurred where my response was slightly over the top and sprinkled with a hint of malice and lack of sympathy. I also posted something on a Facebook page of mine that I am sure had to hurt some people, but the post does not affect me. It does not affect me because I just don’t have strong feelings in that area….but, that in itself bothers me because I am pretty sure that I should.
When I was younger, I had a father in the home, but he wasn’t that great of a dad in my opinion. He has apologized for that, however it is too late now. If anybody in the family reads this, I do not intend for this post to hurt you — I’m just trying to help someone else.
He provided for us as best he could and he stayed in the home, but there was a lack of affection so now as he goes through various illnesses in his old age, I don’t really care like most daughters would, even though many of his not so good qualities were due to the plight of being a black man in America. I mean how can a man be treated like shit all day and come home all hunky dory? I know my feelings seem harsh, but as a Pisces child, I so longed for the love of a father that something in me died when I did not get that love and that place in my heart turned to stone.
The Consequences of Death While Still Alive
Following that, in my quest for love, I sought affection from male love interests and did not make the best choices in my desperation. As a result I suffered and never knew a man’s love because the ones I chose had no clue about how to give it. Consequently, I realized too late that something had gone horribly wrong…..or maybe it went right, depending on how you look at it.
The things that hurt us most will definitely change us and we’ll eventually stop hurting if we allow ourselves to go through these things. If you were sexually or physically abused as a child, treated harshly by a spouse, bullied as a youngster, ridiculed for your sexual orientation, made fun of due to your religious beliefs, or experienced anything that left you feeling destroyed, you may have risen from that situation realizing you had changed or hardened in some way.
That change is okay and actually is normal because we all must go through various metamorphoses to get to our end result, I mean who eats vanilla ice cream and birthday cake batter? The batter must go through the change of becoming a cake!
I have good news for you — it’s okay that you are not the 1970s Hollywood dad or mom, but you do have a responsibility to file down the jagged edges of the newly quarried jewel that you still refer to as your heart. If as a result of the experiences you endured you are depressed, angry, bitter, evil, etc., please fix this. The same way you were broken, you need to develop a plan to be put back together again, perhaps differently, but in such a way that you can still positively impact others and like the feelings that it brings.
What Can I Do to Fix My Twisted Heart?
I am not a psychologist, but I will say that in addition to getting therapy from someone who is licensed to provide it, the following may help:
Hang around people who do not have the same issues as you. You can help each other and they can teach you to see things in a better light (from their healthier point of view) and ‘lend’ you some of their heart in the area where yours was stolen.
Carefully select the media that you feed into your senses, because it should be wealthy as opposed to poor — and by wealthy I mean, nothing missing, nothing lacking and nothing broken. Too much gangsta rap, porn, gushing blood and gore films, etc., can cause callousness of the heart and indifference. It’s okay to watch this type stuff every once in a while, but do all things in moderation and balance.
Make a decision to love and practice it by putting yourself in a place where you can see and feel how the love you provide nurtures and is needed and appreciated. You need to reap its rewards early for positive reinforcements in order that you can re-learn to dwell in it.
I wrote the song below when I finally experienced true care from someone, who helped to rebuild my brokenness. Hopefully it will help you to.
Song: “Everything’s Alright Now” by Colette Renee with music by smoothbeatsonly.com
Today’s blog post is about a lot of stuff: the difference between truth and emotions, tarot, major and minor arcanas, my call to tarot, its meaning to me, and why I bear its name. Whew! Told ya it’s a lot!
The Difference Between Truth and Emotions and What’s Scary about Emotions
The following are my definitions because if I use Webster’s, he’s a human just like me so why not use my own?
Truth is the general summary of the greater good or actual unspoken intentions of individuals, which occurred or were expressed during an event and is indifferent to how participants of said event perceived the happenings. Correct perception of actual truth is not necessarily taught, however truth is age old and based on Universal Law and many people do not recognize truth until they learn its lessons.
Emotions are physiological/mental responses one has to persons, places or things (external stimuli) — responses which are brought about by others based on feelings they prompt when introducing the stimuli.
The scary thing about emotions is that your physical being, whose feelings have little to do with Universal Law, can overstimulate to cause you to believe that emotion is truth. Yes, emotions can charade themselves as truth behind the cloak of your pain, sweat and tears, however when you stand bare from tears, hurt, sadness, pain, disappointment, unforgiveness, lies, self-doubt, imagination, pride, pretending, etc., what is usually left is the naked truth.
