GOD-GIVEN TELEKINESIS

Audio'Siyo or Osiyo [Hello in Cherokee]

Read the last Daily Message titled, IN MY ELEMENT

I marveled at this morning's Musical DLG ™  (Download from God ™ ) called, "Magic Carpet Ride" by Steppenwolf. It's one of those breakthrough songs that makes me feel like I'm having a conversation with God through the song. He speaks one verse and I speak another verse.

This particular Musical DLG ™  I found even more breathtaking than usual because it came with a Visual DLG ™ . As this song was playing through my head, I received the visual of the new game by Mattel ™  called, "Mind Flex." In my Visual DLG ™  I saw myself moving all kinds of energy around me to make my Life work for me. I saw myself moving things around in my Life like pawns on a chessboard by shear thought. I was playing a game of chess with myself in the most wonderful, imaginative and strategic way. What I received out of both the Musical and Visual DLG ™  is I don't need a man-made game about telekinesis to show me what God already gave me. Maybe I don't need it but for some reason this morning, I needed to see it.

MAGIC CARPET RIDE
by Steppenwolf
(Lyrics below the video)

(Me talking to God)
I like to dream yeah, yes, yes, right between my sound machine
On a cloud of sound I drift in the night
Any place it goes is right
Flies far, goes near, to the stars away from here

(God talking to me)
Well, you don't know what we can find
Why don't you come with me little girl
On a magic carpet ride
You don't know what we can see
Why don't you tell your dreams to me
Fantasy will set you free
Close your eyes girl
Look inside girl
Let the sound take you away

(Me talking to God)
Last night I held Aladdin's lamp
And so I wished that I could stay
Before the thing could answer me
Well, someone came and took the lamp away
I looked around, lousy candle's all I found

(God talking to me)
Well, you don't know what we can find
Why don't you come with me little girl
On a magic carpet ride
Well, you don't know what we can see
Why don't you tell your dreams to me
Fantasy will set you free
Close your eyes girl
Look inside girl
Let the sound take you away

AS LONG AS IT TAKES

Audio'Siyo or Osiyo [Hello in Cherokee]

Read the last Daily Message titled, SOUL CONSUMPTION

Have you ever wondered, "How long is it going to take?" Long ago I knew a man once who had a history of making really bad choices in relationships. His low self-esteen caused him to settle for any woman that showed him a little affection. He kept choosing dramatic and needy women that he would give his money to, which left him literally broke. I mean this man was broke! His utilities were continually being shut off and he didn't even have gas money to get to work half the time but he would hand money over to his girlfriend to pay her cell phone bill. Slowly everything was being siphoned out of this man's life, including being robbed of his possessions, which was basically anything that held value. Even the copper wiring in his home was stripped from inside the walls. His relationship with his own family (children) was also suffering. Then his work ethic began to slip as he began showing up late for work. What little money he did have was spent on partying to kill the emotional pain. His friends became tired of hearing his self-sabotaging stories and even more fed up with loaning him money they would never see again.

One day in the midst of all his troubles, this man asked if a mutual acquaintance was available to date. Well, I'm a cut to the chase, straight-forward speaking gal, so simply telling him that she wasn't his type wouldn't be any help to him. She was a successful and happy woman in her own right and wasn't in the market for being rescued. A man with his act together was more her type. I asked if I could give him a bit of cold hard advice but first cautioned that it may not feel very Good. He said, "Go ahead, everyone else beats me up." Since I'm not into self-pity, martyrdom or the struggle, I gently said, "It's okay, some other time." Then I turned and walked away. About 10 minutes later the man walked up to me and said, "I want to hear it. I need to hear it. Just say it!" Then he pulled back his shoulders and stood up straight. I smiled, took his hand and said, "Come on. Let's walk."

Folks, how ever long it takes for us to get "the get" will be as long as it takes. If you've read my book, then you know this little story. One night I was praying for enlightenment over the ending of a long-term (12 year) relationship. I was refreshed and relieved that the connection had finally ended, but six months later I was still questioning why it took so long for me to get it. I had still not taken the time to contemplate the lessons and decided to let my emotions reel. I always encouraged meltdowns with my patients and decided it was time for me to have a meltdown. I threw myself on the bed in the fetal position and began replaying the final month in my head. After a short time, I began to sob and every piece of hurt came flying out of my mouth. I was crying out to God, craving an answer and showing all of my anger (after all it had been 12 long years) when suddenly I screamed, "He didn't have to treat me that way to get me to leave!" I said it again but louder, "He didn't have to treat me that way to get me to leave!" Then I yelled it even louder a third time, "He didn't have to treat me that way to get me to leave!" When quickly and distinctly I heard back through a DLG (Download from God ™ ), "Yes he did."

SOUL CONSUMPTION

Audio'Siyo or Osiyo [Hello in Cherokee]

Read the last Daily Message titled, SHAKE IT LIKE A POLAROID PICTURE

This morning's Musical DLG ™  (Download from God ™ ) is called,"Obsession" by Animotion. It's one of those catchy dance tunes from 1985 that speaks volumes in practical truth especially if you've ever been obsessed by "Unrequited Love" or "Catch-22 Love". Unrequited Love is Love that is not reciprocated or returned back to you and Catch-22 Love is Love that cannot be attained simply because the rules or conditions make it impossible to have the desired outcome. Infidelity is a perfect example of Catch-22 Love. In my opinion, both types of Love, unrequited and catch-22, fall under the heading "soul consumption" simply because we have given up our common sense and allowed these types of relationships to consume our soul. I want to make a strong point that this is something we do voluntarily. We agree to be in these relationships in the first place, so blaming and shaming another person for what we allowed into our Life is shirking personal responsibility to nurture our very own soul.

"Soul consumption" is one of those tough, embarrassing and yes, sometimes humiliating lessons in Life. Love, food, alcohol, recreational or prescription drugs, money, sex, career, work ethic and family issues can all fall under the heading "soul consumption" too if we don't keep ourselves in check and balance. It is our fantastic and imaginative mind that will tell us whatever we want to believe, even if our spirit knows better. Often times, in relationships that consume our soul, we tell ourselves that we have 'a connection' when what we really have is 'a disconnection'. Over the years I've talked to many individuals who described their relationship as having 'a connection' but yet the relationship wasn't connecting at all and left both individuals miserable but in very different ways. Even two people who are not seeing one another anymore will still claim 'a connection' when it is clearly 'a disconnection' otherwise they would still be together. There may be an issue of 'not wanting' to be rejected or defeated or an issue of 'wanting' to conquer or possess. No matter the case, there is no control.

Once I got 'the get' about me and relationships, it was almost too easy to draw the perfect man for me, to me. In fact, 'The Scorpion King' and I get a real belly laugh out of our story and how easy it was to progress forward. We were each other's gimme. Now when I take a look back at my relationship track record, the man who I would have swore was 'the one', actually was 'the one' but not in the way I thought. He was 'the one' alright, he was 'the one' that changed my life direction that led me on the path to 'The Scorpion King'. Isn't hindsight 20/20? Now I have a relationship that is healthy, adventurous and slathered with great humor, family members and sport. Further, neither of us are so consumed by the relationship that we cannot function with or without each other. Folks, retrace your relationships steps because they do lead to someone special. I think the biggest mistake made in relationships is repeating the past instead of choosing the upgrade, even if you don't yet know who that upgrade is. By repeating the past, I'm referring to going back to a relationship that isn't working but hanging on because of "a connection". If the relationship was working, then it would work.

This may come as a surprise to some of you but not all of us are in relationship lifetimes. Contrary to popular belief, some people on the planet are simply not here to find their soulmate. It is our North Node (the future) that tells us exactly what we are here to do and the South Node (the past) tells us where we have been in past lifetimes and where we have gained experience and knowledge to 'use' in this lifetime (the future). Some of us are here for different reasons and not all of us are about finding the Love of our Life . . but yet at the same time, we still find Love. Yes, those of us (like myself) who are not in relationship lifetimes still manage to find Love. Further, those who are 'not in a' relationship lifetime may find Love with someone who 'is in a' relationship lifetime. It's okay and it will happen. It's perfectly fine and wonderful if two people find each other and are here for two different reasons. Just because you may not be in a relationship lifetime (like myself) does not mean you will not have issues with relationships either. For some of us, Love isn't the issue but we make it the issue. DANG, now that's a lesson!

OBSESSION
by Animotion
(the lyrics are below the video)

You are an obsession, I cannot sleep
I am a possession unopened at your feet
There is no balance, no equality
Be still I will not accept defeat

I will have you, yes I will have you
I will find a way and I will have you
Like a butterfly, a wild butterfly
I will collect you and capture you

You are an obsession, you're my obsession
Who do you want me to be to make you sleep with me
(x2)

I feed you, I drink you by day and by night
I need you, I need you by sun or candlelight
You protest, you want to leave
You say there's no alternative

Your face appears again, I see the beauty there
But I see danger, stranger beware
A circumstance in your naked dreams
Your affection is not what it seems

You are an obsession, you're my obsession
Who do you want me to be to make you sleep with me
(x2)

My fantasy has turned to madness
All my goodness has turned to badness
My need to possess you has consumed my soul
My life is trembling, I have no control

I will have you, yes I will have you
I will find a way and I will have you
Like a butterfly, a wild butterfly
I will collect you and capture you

You are an obsession, you're my obsession
Who do you want me to be to make you sleep with me
(x2 an fade)

SHAKE IT LIKE A POLAROID PICTURE

Audio'Siyo or Osiyo [Hello in Cherokee]

Read the last Daily Message titled, THE WEB OF LIFE

This morning's Musical DLG ™  (Download from God ™ ) called,"Hey Ya" by Outkast is one of those cool tunes that you just can't help but shake it to. At least I can't. Outkast performed this song during the Grammy's several years ago and I just Loved the performance because they added a unique flair of Native American style. Not to mention the expressive style of dance they do in this song is something I would do on the dance floor . . all the way baby . . . throw in the pony, a little swim, the jerk and some robot and you're dancin' pretty cool in my book. (winky wink)

At about 3:22 AM I woke up hearing, "Shake it, c'mon shake it, shake it like a polaroid picture." I laid there for a minute counting on my fingers how many hours I had been asleep because I have to log at least four hours sleep in order to function at my usual speed, which is Mach 1, otherwise known as, the speed of sound. I nodded off and I woke up again at 5:18 AM hearing, "Shake it, c'mon shake it, shake it like a polaroid picture." I thought, "Fine! Alright already! I'm up!"

I'm a firm believer in . . if you want something new, different or just a bit of change, then shake it! Shake your world folks and see what falls out. If nothing is happening for you in an area that you want change, it could be that you are doing the same thing, thereby receiving the same results. All I'm really talking about is cause and effect. You see folks, it's a well known law in the Land of Physics that energy cannot be created, nor can it be destroyed, but what it can do is change form. So change your form or your approach for cryin' out loud and see what comes from it!

The Law of Conservation of Energy is an empirical law of physics. In other words, it can be verified. You can absolutely verify energy! The total amount of energy that exists or that ever existed remains constant; it doesn't change. So the same amount of energy that exists yesterday will be the same today. The 'amount' of energy doesn't change because it is constant amount. Therefore, the consequence of this law is that energy cannot be created nor destroyed. The only thing that can happen to energy is that it can change from one form to another. So chemical energy can become thermal energy. So yeah, you can change the energy of your circumstance into something completely different. It's a fact in the Land of Physics! Even Einstein's famous Theory of Relativity reveals that energy and mass are the same thing, and that neither appears without the other. It's magic! Or should I say magical. Evaporation is caused when water is exposed to air and the liquid molecules turn into water vapor which rise up and form clouds. There ya' go again, energy cannot be created nor destroyed but it can change from one form to another.

Okay, so I floated out into the ethers trying to make my point but EVERYTHING is a simple algebraic equation. EVERYTHING! If you shake it, whatever 'it' is, will change form into something else. If you don't act upon it, then it's 'appearance' stays the same. So come on . . . "Shake it, c'mon shake it, shake it like a polaroid picture" and let's see what falls out.

HEY YA'

I CAN SEE!

Audio'Siyo or Osiyo [Hello in Cherokee]

Read the last Daily Message titled, THE WEB OF LIFE

This morning's Musical DLG ™  (Download from God ™ ) called, "I Can See Clearly Now" by Johnny Nash is so fitting for the times. Well, I guess it really depends on how you choose to look at things. Astrologically speaking, we are just sliding out of several planets that were retrograde (going back to the past) that were all in the sign of Aquarius (the future). Remember back in spring we had a Stellium (4 or more planets in a sign) and they were all in the sign of Aquarius. I wrote about this in your Weekly Horoscope and it was posted for quite some time. And then this summer we still had a Stellium in Aquarius but the 4 planets were retrograde. When retrograde motion occurs this is actually a second pass of the planets through the same degree. So even though we were scratching and crawling our way to the future (represented by Aquarius), the retrograde action of the Aquarius planets had us repeating the past. aaarrrrrrrgggghhhhhh

So here's the kicker. Think about it, a planet is just meandering along and then it goes retrograde and repeats what it just did. So that is two passes through the same degree. Then it moves forward again and it goes through a repeated degree a THIRD TIME. Life is one big ol' equation and if you ask me, God always did things in 3, 7's and 40's and that's more than Good enough for me. Read the scripture below keeping in mind 3's and Neptune (the planet of sleep, anesthesia and dreams), which goes direct tomorrow, November 5th.

"For God speaks once, yea twice,
yet man perceives it not.
In a dream, in a vision of the night,
when deep sleep falls upon men,
in slumber upon the bed;
then he opens the ears of men,
and seals their instruction."
Job 33:14-16

When it comes to retrograde planets and this 3 passing movement through the same degree, you can bet your Rumpelstiltskin that I pay attention to it. Tomorrow, November 5th, 2009 Neptune will finally go direct, which I have written about in your Weekly Horoscope. Neptune is THE LAST of the Aquarian planets that were previously retrograde that will be moving toward the future again (in the sign of the futuristic sign, Aquarius).

It's critically important to look positively at the economic down turn simply because it is during times like these that people literally yank on their creativity. It's ashame that we humans have to wait until we are in crisis and survival mode before we tap our God-given creativity. I wonder if God is thinking, "Hey, whatever it takes to get my children off their butt!" It's times like these that new inventions, innovations, ideas, designs, creations and thoughts are manifested and brought into physical reality. Look around and you'll see how creative people have become to make their Life work for them. Folks, this is all soooooo very Good. If you have been sitting in self-pity and self-undoing, then snap the heck out of it because I guarantee you will miss out because it is completely unproductive. If you choose to sit up, throw your chest out and look full speed ahead, you will soon find yourself saying, "I CAN SEE! I CAN SEE!"

I CAN SEE CLEARLY NOW
by Johnny Nash
(See lyrics below the video)

I can see clearly now, the rain is gone,
I can see all obstacles in my way
Gone are the dark clouds that had me blind
It's gonna be a bright (bright), bright (bright)
Sun-Shiny day

I think I can make it now, the pain is gone
All of the bad feelings have disappeared
Here is the rainbow I've been prayin' for
It's gonna be a bright (bright), bright (bright)
Sun-Shiny day

Look all around, there's nothin' but blue skies
Look straight ahead, nothin' but blue skies

I can see clearly now, the rain is gone,
I can see all obstacles in my way
Gone are the dark clouds that had me blind
It's gonna be a bright (bright), bright (bright)
Sun-Shiny day

THE WEB OF LIFE

Audio'Siyo or Osiyo [Hello in Cherokee]

Read the last Daily Message titled, THE PERFECT STRANGER

If you hadn't noticed yet, I've been ram-jamming on the website and getting my 'daily' work completed as quickly as possible. I'm focused, I'm on my game and I'm taking no prisoners. Sometimes it takes a swat on the butt, a two-by-four against the head or some other physically painful thing in order to wake you up and take notice. Well that's exactly what happened to me.

Several days ago I was actually bitten by a brown recluse spider. As holistic and green as I think, breathe and live, even I know when antibiotics are in order. A brown recluse spider bite is a very serious matter because it can cause cell and tissue death (necrosis) and can even cause loss of a limb if not properly treated. I'll leave all of the symptoms, treatment and gory details of a brown recluse spider bite to your own Curious George research. (winky wink) It's definitely nothing to take lightly. Within less than 12 hours of getting started on antibiotics I already began feeling better although I was still walking with a severe limp. The bite was on my thigh. Folks, the swelling of this bite had grown from a dime sized nodule to bigger than the circumference of a coffee cup.

Yesterday morning I decided to take a run to the hardware store with the Scorpion King. Minutes after we got out of the car, I suddenly stopped in the middle of the parking lot and said, "I need to think like an Indian about this spider bite. I haven't been thinking right the whole time." I went on to tell him about Spider Medicine and what it represents in my Life and how I've always used Spider Medicine to assist me in the past. I said, "If I'm right about what I think this is about and I got 'the get', then something is going to pop and pop real soon. If I'm right, then everything is going to be just fine."

SPIDER MEDICINE
creativity, weaving, infinity

Not an hour later when we returned home, my thigh felt very strange and wet. If I didn't know any better I'd of thought that I peed my pants. Sorry about the details here folks but it's important. It felt as though moisture was running down my pant leg. When I pulled down my jeans, the bandage over the spider bite was soaked with blood and pus. Well, I did say that if I got "the get" then something would pop and it sure did. The lesion POPPED and began releasing the toxins. If I had more spring in my step I would have been jumping for joy. When I showed the Scorpion King I said, "SEE, all of that weird stuff that I do and think, well this is how it works baby! Now that's getting, THE GET." Folks, I may be out there, but I know what the heck I'm talking about. (winky wink)

Interestingly enough I was talking to a client this morning (Elaine) from I think Maryland and after we finished talking about what she called for then we just started chatting up a storm. Elaine shared with me a recent experience with a cicada (a huge insect) that had literally attached itself to her hand. It clung to her and held on for dear life. The great thing is Elaine understood exactly how this cicada related to her Natal Chart just as I understood how Spider Medicine related to my Natal Chart. The moment of 'the get' was not only a reality check, it was life changing, but why in the world do we humans wait until something hurts to get it?

Needless to say, all of the swelling has gone down and I'm just dealing with a nasty lesion about the size of a quarter that still needs careful attention. And to facilitate the process I'm back on my game, typing my brains out and weaving my infinite web of creativity. Okay here's 'the get' folks . . Spider Medicine . . creating, weaving . . Creating, Weaving . . CREATING WEAVING . . my web . . My Web . . MY WEB . . . CREATING AND WEAVING MY WEB SITE! The world-wide-web sure is an infinite amount of space and I received my dose of Spider Medicine loud and clear! Lesson learned.
