How to Become a Hermit in 2017

Jennifer graduated from university in 2004 and quickly discovered how hard it is to find new and close friends.  In past days she sometimes connected with colleagues Michelle and David after work, but most of her former classmates live out of state or country so she depends on Facetime and Skype to stay in touch with them. 

Not long after her 10-year marriage to prescription addict Christopher , Jennifer decided to move away from familiar settings and settle down in a major urban area in an effort to change her environment and expand her group of friends.  Despite the Meet Up groups and Eventbrite happenings, she never seemed to connect with anyone so she turned back to her former crew via her newest #iphone.  

Jennifer did luck up and find the digital marketing job of her dreams, and she was given the opportunity to telecommute, attending meetings and training using conferencing apps like Zoom.  Jennifer felt this job came at the perfect time seeing that she did not feel like applying a full face of makeup most days, especially after her recent divorce. 

After hearing about a growing number of school and church shootings, Jennifer was happy to do online worship, as well as psychology classes on the web and found she could easily send monetary gifts and payments via PayPal.

She lived alone with her cat Sally, so she’d order their food, her jammies and toiletries through online stores, but after the vet stopped by for a house call one day, and mentioned that a new super store was being raised a couple of miles away, Jennifer realized she hadn’t left her house in two months…

Products for the up and coming mystic and sole practitioners!

The New Age has Arrived and Brings a Bit More than We Imagined.

We expected to shift into the Age of Aquarius in a collective energy of community, cooperation and togetherness, but with the onslaught of mindless killings and meaningless physical relationships, many have taken advantage of cost and fuel-saving work-from-home options, and their feet haven’t seen real shoes for months.  The only thing unbound in their lives right now are their toes.

Modern inventions, to include the internet, podcasting, social media, online stores, web church, etc., are absolutely awesome, but then we put it all together and found out it equals a big fat ‘never leave home’.

There’s Nothing Wrong with the New Age of Hermits, But What Do You Do If You Miss the Personal Touch?

Everyone knows that online dating is not all it’s cracked up to be, but gone are the days, pretty much, where one runs into the random stranger and proceeds to a local bar….the guy or girl could drop something in your drink, leaving you to wake up naked in an alley for God’s sake!

There’s still safety in numbers, and actual classrooms vs cloud learning continue to be an option, along with cultural groups and other unions that require background checks that bring together like-minded individuals who are interested in similar past-times.  Some people will even bite the bullet and use a more selective and expensive human-managed hook up service which requires safety checks and balances, and it may be worth the money expended on such a venture.

There are quite a few of you who have found yourselves in the same predicament as Jennifer as you trudge through this fast-becoming, nontraditional journey called life.  Things have changed,yet no two journeys are alike.

Creatives have collectively been extremely ingenious about developing innovative conveniences that so many enjoy.  Perhaps it is time to be just as creative about delivering ourselves out of this mistakenly, self-imposed, and growing hermit society.

We need to ask ourselves some questions:

  1.  Would internet censorship prevent mentally unstable individuals from getting ideas about harming others?
  2. Is it necessary for American to know everything that is happening in each city and nation or is it too much?  Do we trust censorship?
  3. What in the hell is happening with supposed gun control laws that are already in existence?
  4. Is online shopping contributing to an antisocial society, and should the online giants invest money in purposeful, locally run, fresh food markets that neighbors can walk to, and that have areas for socializing? (Caviat:  I love online stores, but I need to ask the questions.)

Just some things to think about.

I Rebelled Against Patriarchy and It Showed Up On My Face – A Love Letter

Dear Patriarchy,

It wasn’t that I didn’t like you, I was just done with the bull.  I mean, I know that my great grandmother was down for you, but my paternal grandma wasn’t having it, and I hung around her a lot…..so what did you expect…..grandpa wasn’t there to defend you because grandma divorced him.

Don’t get me wrong, I’ve got body-hairless cousins that cheer for you, but I can’t pretend to agree with you when I know you’re wrong.  Also, (clears throat)…..da da da dum…..I have a brain.

I know you think it doesn’t work, and that I’m flaky and emotional, but it just means I care, I don’t want to fight and I like the thought of living longer…., which by the way, you can do if you get with my program.

I have something I have to tell you and I’ve been wanting to tell you this for a long time.  You’re not as smart as me.  Nope, and under your leadership, little girls and boys have been raped and mutilated, and the world is going to hell in a hand basket.

Speak to someone who cares — get advice about love and finances.

Oh, you didn’t know?

But, I’m not going to make this long, I just wanted to ask if we could find a way to get along.  I still want your virility in my life, but when you see me….you see someone else.  It kinda showed up on my face and now you think I’m a smartass or a know-it-all.

Nooooo!  It’s not that lol, it’s just that I like not having bruises on my arm from you pulling me where I don’t want to go.  And, sometimes I just want to curl up with my English tea, my cat and my kindle.  And just because I don’t want to have sex when I want my kindle, doesn’t mean I don’t ever want it because when I want it, I WANT IT!  I no longer want to be a slave to the drug testosterone or to the tiny bacteria that lie at the root of your male member, which YOU refuse to treat because…

“That doctor’s equipment hurts me!” You say in your whiny voice.

So you’d rather I be hurt by you.

Oh well, don’t hate me because I have my own mind.  I still need you.  Let’s figure out how we can make this work because you have to admit, we need each other.

Love,

Matriarchy

Soul Listening

We Have to Get Past the Sounds Coming from Our Physical Mouths. Nobody’s Listening Anyway!

So you’ve been yelling at that special someone and asking them to pay attention to you or to do something else for that matter. As a result of the bickering and animosity, this special someone spends even less time with you and you go off to lick your wounds wondering why you are not being heard.

Human beings have a tendency to tune out abrasive sounds, and most of us get riled up as a result of overly loud banter. The best way to be heard is through Soul Talk.

What is Soul Talk?

We all have a little known body that exists inside and outside of our physical bodies. This body is powered, at least in part, by electronic wheels along the spine: we call these wheels chakras. By using meditations and exercises to power up our own chakras, while at the same time intentionally focusing on our righteous desires, we improve ourselves and get in tune with what it is we really want. The quiet and focus allows for us to think through the possibilities and discover what may be frightening us to push those we really love away.

Speak to someone who cares — get advice about love and finances.

Once this happens, we are able to elevate ourselves and change vibrations to magnetically attract what it is that we want. Now of course there are other things that go into this such as knowing what we REALLY want, consistency and focus. We also have to understand a bit about human nature and what draws and drives people, however this explanation gives the main gist of how it works, and the revelatory powers of meditation will usually handle the rest.

The vibration on which this true desire occurs sends strong signals to our subconscious and to the subconscious of those around us and acts as a tuning fork to get them to tune in on the same frequency, hence causing them to have mental images that are in line with what we want. This can be for good or for bad so before moving on to the next lover after finding that the three previous ones were one in the same, perhaps it is time for us to align our own energy fields to draw to us someone that is a bit grander! We attract who we are at the core, whether or not we want to accept this. I know it is really difficult, but if we think deeply, we can see how others mirror our own actions and beliefs.

Call or chat with me today to discuss the possibilities that life and love have to bring to you!

Love, light and many blessings!

Speak Peacefully in #Love!

Mars has Entered Leo with the Asteroid Ceres, and the Sun is Fast Approaching

We all know that Leo the Lion is a fire sign that has no qualms about letting us know how (s)he feels when it comes to love and relationships. As Mars, the God of War enters into the energy of the sign with the amplifier Ceres and the Sun fast approaching, there is a tendency for us to say words that we could not take back even if we wanted to!

Think Before You Speak!

Through the first week of September 2017 it’s going to feel like if we don’t say what is on our minds we may explode, but I promise…..we won’t. Please practice the following for the next few days:

1. Breathe and clear your head when faced with challenging circumstances.

2. Wait a couple of days before you respond to that insane text message that someone had the nerve to send you. Perhaps they are taking something out on you, or are confused themselves. Give them a chance to explain and a couple of days to gather their own thoughts.

3. Let your yays be yay and your nays be nay, meaning you don’t have to add a bunch of profanity to the mix. Show them you mean what you say with your actions, and remember, you always retain the choice of saying nothing at all.  Silence is golden.

4. Save your energy for yourself.  Arguments usually cause us to project our own energies onto the subject of our grief leaving them feeling energized and us depleted.

5. Don’t believe everything you see on social media! We can hire actors to pose in pictures with us, and quite honestly, some people post pics just to give people the impression that they own things that are really only borrowed….lol.

Hopefully these tips will help us to survive the Leo transits that are occurring as I type!

What Jay Z and 4:44 Can Do for the #Love of an American Male

When Beyonce came out with Lemonade, the visual album, I had to get a copy and must say it is a work of art, enjoyable no matter how many times I view it.  As many of you are aware, I dealt with infidelity also and Beyonce captured the suffocating intoxication of what cheating does to a woman, and what the cheatee requires from the cheater to continue on in the relationship.

The emergency manual for the broken heart.

Enter Jay Z and his new album 4:44, which features a remake of the tune Four Women by Nina Simone.  Perhaps Jay Z, in addition to stating no matter the color of your  skin, you are still who you are, also had an underlying meaning with regard to four women instead of just one (food for thought).  Additionally, he provided more than the 411 about what was going on in his male head when Queen Bey demanded absolute honesty and loyalty.  He admitted this was nothing he had ever been required to do before, and how different it was for him once he actually put himself in her shoes.

Here is where I feel Jay Z, in his confessions and sensitivities, contributes to Love American Style.  Many men will live his experience, emotions and words through this very popular album….imagine the consciousness that this will raise in the urban community.

How many other men will wake from their lusty slumber as they relive Jay Z’s relationship with Bey?

Is the peer pressure  to be a baller so strong amongst young men that swaggalishusness precludes them from being faithful?

Of course there will be many men who will immediately jump on the T.H.O.T train and claim the women have it coming to them, and don’t want to be saved, but……

…….I’m not talking about those women.  I’m speaking of all the women who raised themselves up in order to attract and to BE a worthy partner, only to be fooled by the empty promises of monogamy in a primarily polygamous culture.

Will Jay Z continue to be faithful or will he falter?  How many other men will come clean and agree that fidelty is worth sacrificing the other woman?  Does it matter if Jay Z is faithful as long as he is truthful?

Is true love the only emotion that can evoke faithfulness in a man?

Who knew that being true to a woman makes some men feel like they are less virile?

I am absolutely NOT convinced that fidelity and faithfulness are the natural order for the majority, but I’ll give Jay Z an ‘E’ for effort and a hand clap for going platinum.

Falling in #Love with Nonexistent People

Yesterday I received a text from an old love, who I had not heard from in months, and who had disappeared in the middle of our so-called relationship.  Based on how he acted when we were together, I had been left quite in shock, and did not understand the sudden betrayal and abandonment.  Yesterday, in his texts, he sounded a bit out of it, said he was in physical pain due to some undisclosed ailment, and confessed not having a heart……um, duh!  

I woke up this morning thinking about all of my lost loves, facing my unrealized self and tried to carve out a general truth about love.  Come explore this with me…

 

Hollywood – The Bane of Our Society

Vision boards are suppose to work, so if the television and movie screen are our most watched vision boards, why are we not falling in love or living in fabtabulous families with happy endings like most movies have?  BTW, if you are living the fantasy life, you may not get anything out of this post because you are likely already where I am headed to or are being taught by some capable person who lives there.  The issue is that when we look at vision boards that we create, they come from us and from our very real desires about what we want.  Hollywood offers scripts………and actors.

 

The First Actor

I realized a little too late that some men were not as interested in me as they first appeared to be.  Quite truthfully, they just wanted a piece of ass so they had to go through a bit of a dance and acting job to get it.

They pretended to want to hear what I had to say.

Silly me.  I was so excited about wanting to be heard that I spilled all of my silly hopes and dreams, only to find out that when the same guy talked to his best friend, his conversation was totally different.  He thought I was silly and spooky.  I realized I didn’t even know him or what he liked to talk about AND he did not feel me worthy of even trying to broach the conversation so he stuck to “you’re so beautiful”, “so what do you like to do” AND “what did you do today?”

After I gave up the cookies……too early…..I found out that he had gotten what he was looking for and he was off to the next bag of chips.  In fact, when he texted me his well rehearsed lines to get what he wanted, I never knew he had sent out the exact same texts to six other women before me.  Well now.

What My Male Friends Taught Me

My male friends will sometimes be on the phone with me when one of their love interests calls them (on a different line), and I hear them say, “OMG, I hope she just goes away,” only to answer the phone in the most welcoming voice to make her feel that she is adored.  Damn.

When my ex was trying to win me over, he called constantly and pretended to want to counsel me on all my woes.  Now he reveals truthfully, “women need to find other women to talk about certain things because men just don’t want to hear it!”

Then why in the hell did you ask?  Who knew.

Learn First, Love Later

Women who are looking for love need to understand a few things in order to get as close to the Hollywood scenario of Prince/Princess Charming as possible.

  1. Allow the love interest that you meet enough time to take off his/her mask.  Yes everyone comes putting their best face forward and you really don’t know who you are getting until they remove the fake hair, hair dust, freckle/blemish-covering clay (not that freckles are bad), false legs, false nails, false lashes, false fragrance, etc., and allow you to look under the bed and in the closet of their lives.  Haven’t you ever wondered why many people are so fake?  It is because they don’t like their real selves and don’t want you to see them, so how in the hell can they love you.  Once their imperfections are revealed, become adorable or at least tolerable to you and vise versa, then you might be able to strike a deal.
  2. Marriage and long-term commitment is a business deal.  Would you enter into a new business with a thief with no money, skills, passion or direction?
  3. Give people a chance to prove to you what they are saying.  Taking someone’s word at face value can lead you to fall in love with an imaginary character that the person in question created, specifically when their flattering words are meant to turn attention away from themselves.  Wait until the conversations become less flattering and more revealing.  Once revelations are made, watch the person live out their convictions because if they cannot keep promises to themselves, they cannot keep them with you either.
  4. Don’t give up the cookies to soon if you are looking for lasting relationship, unless you are a woman who is into sex for money or the sheer joy of sex.  You could develop a miserable soul tie that lasts for years whether you want it to or not, and men do not develop soul ties as fast as women do because they are mental lovers, but women are sacral lovers — sacral being where things grow.  There is a game called love that is not about love at all, but more about saying what is necessary to fulfill lust.  Stay on top of the currency of the developing friendship and put the currency on the shelf for a while to ensure that the gold you were given does not turn into rusted brass, all because it wasn’t really gold to begin with.  When a man has sex with a woman, he inserts part of his soul into her and that soul wants to go back home when if finds out where it is, unless you are some type of energy vamp that knows how to transmute it (that is another blog post…lol).  Once that energy wants to return to him, you will find yourself obsessed with being with someone even if you don’t even like them, and that is scary and confusing.
  5. Sometimes the other woman does get the man. If you meet a guy or girl who has been intimate with someone since childhood, and they confess to you that they married someone else and an affair with this same person ruined their last marriage, AND they are still friends with this person, THEN you may want to just remain friends with him as well, until you check out the truth of the situation.  There are some people that others have strong, active 5th houses with, and if a Saturnal placement also exists there, you won’t be able to compete, unless you have a rival astrological compatibility with that person.  Other times the man is in love with the woman and she is just not attractive enough for him to bring around his family and friends, so  he enjoys during booty call hours only, which makes him a punk.

Hope this advice helps and that you can go into your quest for love, all the wiser.

Why We Absolutely Love Mr. or Mrs. WRONG and How to Stop!!!!!

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!
