“Global warming is real. If we all don't change some things we're going to fuck our planet. And its the only one we have.”
8 minutes ago - Comment - More
“Weird weather we're having. Very warm and sunny today but it is supposed to snow by Friday.”
9 minutes ago - Comment - More
“And to issue this caution. Don't be afraid of ghosts. Most of them don't mean anyone any harm. But do exercise caution in contacting them. Because when you open the door, less savory things can step through too.”
9 minutes ago - Comment - More
“Well, lets see. I reckon maybe I should adopt a motto of some kind. Like the Ghostbusters motto maybe. "We're ready to believe you."”

“Potty break...”
21 minutes ago - Comment - More
“We get a little weird around here if left to our own devices. Thats why it would be nice to have some of y'all step in and take us outside our own little insular group of nut wads!”
21 minutes ago - Comment - More
“But in all seriousness, its expending the energy to make a difference for others, to lessen the suffering in all worlds.”
22 minutes ago - Comment - More
“Some of these smart asses are cutting in with remarks like "It's booze! It's weed!"”
23 minutes ago - Comment - More
“It isn't being perceived as good looking. It isn't being rich. It isn't being "the greatest whatever." It isn't being adulated.”
23 minutes ago - Comment - More
“I am told that "you would be surprised what is found to be important when one has the perspective outside a body. It is not what you might expect."”
24 minutes ago - Comment - More
“I had to be guided not to cling to my Earthbound friends so much. I love working with them but was putting too great of a burden on them. And because several of them care about me (thank you!) they did not want to leave me alone. But I was stunting their healing.”
25 minutes ago - Comment - More
“Folks, it is necessary that we instead call on higher powers to fill these needs. These higher powers have boundless energy. They will not get drained like our Earthbound friends. They can give us what we need.”
26 minutes ago - Comment - More
“My friends do feel sad that there are people who desperately need guidance and companionship. These people take a liking to these friends and constantly call on them. Its sad because really the Earthbound spirits can't fulfill this terrible longing. And they feel awful because they can't.”
27 minutes ago - Comment - More
“Earthbound spirits often have a real need to make contributions that they feel will affect positive change in the world. This helps them heal and atone.”
29 minutes ago - Comment - More
“Contacts are generally about an hour at a time unless working with someone experienced who is able to "keep the door" open for longer. Usually both parties are focused on something.”
30 minutes ago - Comment - More
“Bon Scott came to him and said "don't worry, I'll help you." And they worked together for about an hour, according to Brian. I love that story. It puts chills up my spine--in a good way. Its also a really, really good illustration of how an Earthbound spirit works.”
31 minutes ago - Comment - More
“I'm sure a lot of you have heard Brian Johnson's account of how when he was working on Back in Black he started to have a lot of doubts and came to ask himself "what the hell made me think I could do this? What right do I have to do this?'”
32 minutes ago - Comment - More
“Generally speaking, I really like working with ghosts. It can be frustrating at times. Especially when I start to doubt.”
33 minutes ago - Comment - More
“The way to deal with most human spirits is the same way you deal with a living human. Be kind.”
33 minutes ago - Comment - More
“I explained to him that I in no way wanted him to depart and never return but that he couldn't constantly cling to me because it wasn't healthy for either of us. I explained that I liked him very much and loved working with him but we had to do it in a healthier way.”
34 minutes ago - Comment - More
“I experienced a bit of this with the Dead (protector personality) aspect of my friend's soul complex. He was so very lonely and unhappy that there was a period of time when he clung to the first sympathetic conduit that he came across--me.”
35 minutes ago - Comment - More
“If the spirit one is dealing with is basically a nice person, it can usually be explained to them that their constant presence becomes draining and is not healthy.”
36 minutes ago - Comment - More
“The problem is, such people can drain their incarnate contacts.”
36 minutes ago - Comment - More
“I find it necessary to point out that there are also spirits who take advantage of sympathetic humans. These people may or may not have been psychic vampires in life. Sometimes its simply a person who is recently dead and they are very, very unhappy and maybe somewhat frightened.”
37 minutes ago - Comment - More
“They love to work on creative stuff. If you're working on something and one of them steps in to help you out, its a really nice feeling. Plus its a give and take exchange rather than just one person taking from another.”
39 minutes ago - Comment - More
“The spirits I work with are mostly creative people. Probably because like attracts like.”
40 minutes ago - Comment - More
“So it is our duty as their friends not to drain them and to allow them to do their healing work.”
40 minutes ago - Comment - More
“Just like in life, some of these folks find it hard to say "no" when people are calling on them for help.”
41 minutes ago - Comment - More
“Here's the thing: an earthbound spirit is earthbound because he or she has stuff they still need to work out. They need to work on themselves, on healing, on their goals that they hope to accomplish.”
41 minutes ago - Comment - More
“We expect them to be available to us and bestow their mighty wisdom on us. we grant them demi-god status.”
44 minutes ago - Comment - More
“Seems to me we tend to have similar expectations of ghosts and celebrities.”
44 minutes ago - Comment - More
“I think this is a fair way to handle things. But if anyone has other thoughts, let me know.”
45 minutes ago - Comment - More
“That way when people have questions that are outside the scope of the reading they will receive when they buy their autographed copy, or are more in depth than just something really quick, they can bring it here and we'll discuss it.”
45 minutes ago - Comment - More
“Thing is, I do have some health problems and I get too drained if I just allow ad-lib contact. That's why I made this room.”
46 minutes ago - Comment - More
“There is a fine line of what I think I can reveal about the new book. I get excited when really new ideas come but I don't want to leak too much.”
47 minutes ago - Comment - More
“I was studying about Yggdrasil today.”
49 minutes ago - Comment - More
“Make that BY myself. This ain't that kind of chat room!”
49 minutes ago - Comment - More
“So, hot dawg! Eventually I will get some friends. In the meantime I guess I'll just play with myself.”
50 minutes ago - Comment - More
“I've been hammering on us incarnates about our tendency to expect our spirit friends to be omniscient and omnipotent. THEY ARE NOT! To put it bluntly, these people have issues, or they wouldn't be Earthbound. They need to work on these issues and we need to let them.”
32 minutes ago - Comment - More
Eh? - 63Mago
Oh gosh, didn't see you there! What I mean is that some folks expect spirits to have answers for them or special powers. They have a bit more perspective on certain things, but they don't necessarily have the answer one is seeking. And they certainly aren't omnipotent. They are just human beings. - You (edit | delete)
“I think "celebrities" are just normal human beings that are treated and used by the media - and fullfill a certain need in society. I do not believe that they have anything in common with spirits.”
34 minutes ago - Comment - More
Well, one day we'll all be spirits. Even Brad and Angelina! :-) - You (edit | delete)
38 minutes ago - Comment - More
“But they are not demi-gods. They are just people. In fact, they are flawed people. Unlike me, of course. ;-)”
38 minutes ago - Comment - More
“Found myself wondering why these Norse types can't come up with easy names to spell. Like "Joe's place."”
43 minutes ago - Comment - More
Slögenkögen? - 63Mago
Heh--I couldn't spell that either without looking right at it! - You (edit | delete)
I am sadly deficient in knowledge of most languages. I can read Spanish but it takes me a while. - You (edit | delete)
“Let me address the issue of the new contact rules. I really hate having to come up with stuff like that.
41 minutes ago - Comment - More
“Suspension between practical concerns and matters of the spirit learns the wisdom of secret teachings and hidden truths upon the quest with perfection of circumstances causing true joy.”
45 minutes ago - Comment - More
Hä? - 63Mago
Probably means more to me than to anyone else. To me it means that I am learning things I need to know and it will lead to positive feelings. - You (edit | delete)
“To expand, a sentence forms.”

Reading for Masterymystery

This reading is for MasteryMistery, an online friend of mine. Click here to visit his blog, Cosmic Rapture. Certified unsafe for dullards and conformists.
Sorry to have procrastinated getting on this, it wasn't intentional. I was more worn out than usual, adjusting to my new schedule. At least that's my excuse this time.
The focus card is the Princess of Stones. If representing a person, this is a young female, under the age of 30. She is likely to have a swarthy complexion, dark hair and dark eyes. If not representing an actual person, it represents the qualities of studiousness, kindness, and openmindedness. It can also represent a message about a new opportunity that will open the door to many possibilities.
This card is crossed by the Magician, which is a highly powerful energy of creation and manifestation. The Magician manifests what he or she wants through use of his/her skills. Given your ability with words, I would say that this energy originates with you. Your creative powers are very strong. The letter B is indicated by this card.
The card in the Goal or Destiny position is the three of stones. This card indicates mastery in one's chosen craft and the ability to use one's creative abilities to advantage. This is a very fortunate card for a person who enjoys doing creative work. If it was your wish to gain a wider audience for your writing, now would be the time to begin promoting through new channels. There is a warning not to mix your business life with your personal life and that benefit will come from the assistance of an unlikely individual. Working with a charitable organization will be beneficial to you as well. The letter N is indicated by this card.
In the foundation position is the two of stones. This indicates that you have generally always been able to get along with others. You have a generally balanced personality that lends itself to diplomacy, which will continue to serve you along the way. The letter M is indicated by this card.
In the recent past, there has been upset in your life, as indicated by the Tower. The atmosphere was such that arguments were wont to erupt more quickly than usual between people who were close to you, and this is bothersome to your generally diplomatic nature. As well, your own energies have been depleted to the point of near collapse. This card is a warning to cease any negative activities, i.e. bad habits such as drinking to numb painful feelings. As well, there is an indication of past negativity that has been buried in your psyche bringing forth painful emotions. Recent upheavals in relationships with others are more likely to have past upsets than current concerns as their real basis. Look beneath the surface.
The letters Qu are indicated by this card.
The eight of wands falls in the future events position. This is a card indicating events that transpire with great haste. This card indicates a need to make decisions swiftly with any opportunities that present themselves, a reversal of fortune for the better, and general positive outcomes, though things may at time seem overwhelming. There is, however, a warning not to open yourself up too much, as angry emotions on the parts of other parties may cause them to use your vulnerability against you. There is an indication of jealousy on the part of someone close to you, which strains your relationship with them. The letter H is indicated with the appearance of this card.
The card of the self in this reading is the Hanged Man. This again reflects a creative spirit, a unique personality. However, in spite of the positive aspects of being such a person, it can lead one to feel like the "odd man out" and like one does not belong. This card advises the seeker not to worry about fitting in with the crowd. Use the flexible aspects of your nature to initiate positive change for your life. There is also an indication that activities such as meditation could be helpful to the psyche. The letter M is indicated by this card.
The two of Swords falls in the environmental factors position. Whatever upheavals were indicated by the Tower, the parties involved are willing to work on peaceful solutions to the problems between them. Now is the time for diplomacy. The atmosphere is right for improving all matters in your life, but particularly any involving strife with others. The letter B is indicated by this card.
The ace of cups is in the hopes and fears position. This indicates the desire for a new beginning. The letter L is indicated by this card.
In the outcome position is the ten of swords. This indicates feelings of sorrow and despair that are not easily shaken. This may be a depressive spell or it may be residual feelings from the upheaval indicated by the Tower card, or some of both. There is a temptation to give up on everything. It is never advised to allow despair to kill your dreams, although at times the despair may seem to blanket everything. Look instead to the positive reversal of fortune indicated in the near future. It may be tempting to run away from the entire situation, but that would solve nothing. Face the trouble head-on and in as calm a manner as possible. This is the only way to heal any strife between you and others and to begin to heal the hurt you feel. The letter J is indicated by this card.
While not required, if you have any interest in crystals and stones, these ones are indicated by the card in this reading as drawing positive energies at this time:
Gold topaz, a stone said to draw good fortune and wealth, and also a purifying stone.
Opal, which both draws positive energies and reflects negative ones.
Turquoise is strongly indicated. This stone both helps boost the immune system and helps facilitate communications between people.
Ruby, garnet or bloodstone, which balance the energies of the heart and help facilitate healing.
Agate, which facilitates calm energies and communications. In conjunction with turquoise, this could be very beneficial.
Beryl, a green stone which helps with psychic receptivity and drawing the energies of love and peace.
Sapphire, which draws vibrations from the higher planes and helps with psychic abilities, protection, and calming or meditative energies.
There are Hebrew letters and runes that come into play as well.
Beth (House) is the first letter of the Torah. It means "in the beginning." It cautions against escaping into frivolous activities. Creating is never a frivolous activity. Playing video games for hours at a time is. I wished to give perspective, as there are those who find creative work "frivolous." The Universe does not. It indicates that this would be a good time to start a new venture.
The rune Peorth indicates that you are becoming the person you were meant to become in this lifetime. Open your mind to your natural psychic intuition and pay attention to dreams. You may be surprised at your level of intuitiveness.
The hebrew letter Peh (Mouth) indicates that you tend to think in extremes and are particularly hard on yourself. Ease up and do not be so harsh on yourself. This will also improve your relations with others.
The rune Yr is a warning not to give in to the negativity of others. You are vulnerable right now. Be true to yourself.
The Hebrew letter Lamed (Ox-Goad) indicates that you have been thinking too much with your head and not enough with your heart when it comes to knowing what is right for you. Get in touch with your true inner feelings. Meditate, and when in a relaxed state, ponder on what you really want. In today's world, we often tend to focus too much on material possessions. These may even be necessary, but they are not the heart's desire. There is a need for balance.
The rune Tyr represents personal sacrifices and a charitable nature. Even if feeling combative towards a particularly aggravating individual or situation, meet the challenge with a peaceful conciliatory nature, and things will go far better.
There is also a numerology portion of the reading that I can do if you want to let me know your date of birth. You can email it to me if you would prefer.
I hope you found this helpful in some way. My goal is to assist others with this in any way I can.

Choosing a reader

A client recently mentioned that she had gotten three different responses from three different readers in response to her concerns. This was my response:

You said that the three readers you worked with earlier all said different things. I just wanted to touch on this. Every reader that you work with will pick up on different things. Most readers are honest, though there are some charlatans. The ones you have to beware of are the ones who charge exhorbitant fees and tell you things like "you have a curse on you and I am the only one who can remove it." This is always hogwash, and always indicates that its time to see another reader.
As I said on my website, I don't consider myself a professional reader, but people seem to appreciate my work, so I like to share it and hopefully help where I can. I hope I've been able to help you.

Blessed be,

*Remember, if you would like a free reading, all you have to do is authorize me to share the results on this blog. I promise I won't reveal your real name.

Free Astrology Chart

Got this from Astrolabe. They also do in-depth ones for $25+
I don't even pretend to do astrology charting.

Name: Lily
February 15 1965
6:00 AM Time Zone is MST
Denver, CO

Rising Sign is in 06 Degrees Aquarius
You like new ideas and concepts, but you prefer to discover them by yourself -- it is not easy for others to convert you to anything. You form your own opinions, but once you do form them, you then want to convince everyone else that they are correct. Try to be more tolerant of the opinions of others. You have a deep and abiding interest in science, mathematics, and the great social problems of the day. Very sympathetic toward the downtrodden, equality is your battle cry! You demand that those in authority be fair to all. You are an intellectual -- emotions and emotional people are difficult for you to understand. You are known for being calm, cool, detached and objective.

(except for the emotional part, this all rings true. I'm actually a pretty emotional person, being an empath. I just don't show it most of the time.)

Sun is in 26 Degrees Aquarius.
You get bored with the status quo and are generally open to new things and ideas. An individualist and a free spirit, your friends are quite important to you as long as they do not try to tie you down by making too many emotional demands on you. Your thoughts are offbeat and you're a bit eccentric, but not always very changeable. As a matter of fact, you can be quite stubborn at times. Very fair-minded when dealing with large groups or broad issues, you are not always emotionally sensitive to the needs of individuals. Extremely objective, with good powers of observation, you would be qualified to study technical and complicated subjects, like science, computers or maybe even astrology.

Moon is in 20 Degrees Leo.
You always want to be proud of yourself and will never do anything that will make yourself look bad. You need the respect and admiration of others and enjoy attracting attention to yourself. Everything you do tends to be self-emphasized and self-exaggerated. Very stubborn, willful and independent yourself, be sure to allow others who are close to you the similar right to "be themselves." Your need for love, affection and reassurance, and your tendency toward vanity, allow you to have your head easily turned by flattery. The more insecure you are, the more you tend to be a showoff. You love games and sports as a matter of fact, you would usually rather play than work. Be careful of a tendency to be snobbish and uppity -- it does not become you.

Mercury is in 19 Degrees Aquarius.
You tend to be very opinionated -- you have strongly felt notions about things and are quite vocal about expressing and defending them. Yet you are also an original thinker -- you enjoy shocking others with your offbeat, original thoughts. You appreciate and need mental and intellectual stimulation. Your judgment is usually fair and impartial -- you can be a good critic because you can remain objective and unemotional about most things.

Venus is in 12 Degrees Aquarius.
You are a friendly and outgoing individual, but close relationships are difficult for you to maintain due to your fear that they will cause you to lose your freedom. You attract friends and associates who are exciting, different and sometimes a bit odd. You are popular with others and enjoy working within a group toward group goals.

Mars is in 26 Degrees Virgo.
Very careful and systematic, you pay great attention to details. You are always seeking perfection and sometimes get bogged down searching for the ultimate when adequacy would have been sufficient. You dislike abstractions, preferring whatever is practical, useful and demonstrable. You have a strong and enduring sense of personal responsibility, and you demand that others be as responsible and upright as you are. Very critical of yourself and others, sometimes you carry this too far and become overly intolerant of others and their right to choose their own lifestyles.

Jupiter is in 18 Degrees Taurus.
Growth only occurs for you after you have found a stable lifestyle and a dependable, protective and secure environment. You are at your best when those around you provide you with a great deal of affection and support. When you feel insecure or threatened, you tend to become possessive and grasping and self- indulgent. You are an inveterate collector with an expensive preference for all the good things that life has to offer.

Saturn is in 06 Degrees Pisces.
Your tendency to think that your life is out of control is based on an unreasonable fear, probably connected with an unfortunate experience with the person who filled the father figure role in your early life. Learn to take responsibility here and now for your own life. Try to stop having unrealistic expectations about guide figures. Remember that they are merely human, with all the same faults and self-doubts that you have. When you get confused or uncertain, try to simplify your lifestyle -- things will then become easier to bear.

Uranus is in 13 Degrees Virgo.
You, and all your peers, will be known for the degree of intensity with which you dislike normal everyday routines and chores. You will go out of your way to invent innovative, unique and timesaving ways to perform the various mundane routines and duties of living. You will be attracted to all manner of practical and useful gadgets -- anything that will make your daily life more exciting.

Neptune is in 20 Degrees Scorpio.
You, and your entire generation, are extremely interested in anything deep and mysterious. You will explore and idealize the benefits that can accrue from the study of the occult, healing and psychology. You are willing to experiment with substances like drugs in order to push your understanding of your inner being to the extreme.

Pluto is in 15 Degrees Virgo.
For your entire generation, this will be a time when profound changes in society's attitude toward work, duty and responsibility will be initiated. Radical changes in attitudes toward personal health and general nutrition will be promulgated and gain wide acceptance and practice.

N. Node is in 20 Degrees Gemini.
You will consciously seek out many different contacts with others throughout your life. Many of these will be of very short duration, not necessarily because you're fickle, but just because you always seem to be more excited by the prospect of meeting someone new rather than prolonging your present relationships. At any rate, you will learn something new from almost everyone you come across -- intellectual stimulation is what you crave from others. You will be well known to neighbors and relatives, partly due to your curiosity about what they're doing -- you delight in keeping up-to-date about the latest news (and gossip).

Remembering a time

I only once did readings in a bar. I wasn't comfortable doing them in that atmosphere and have never done so again. There was this annoying girl that kept coming back and heckling me because I couldn't tell her where the bathroom was. One of her friends came and told me "people like you scare her." I said I'd encountered that sort of attitude more than once.
On that particular night, however, I'll always remember that this very nice young man came to me and said he had something very important to tell his family but didn't know what to do because he was afraid they might be angry. It was pretty obvious from the cards and just what I sensed that he was wanting to come out. The cards revealed that things would be rough at first but after a bit of time his family would come to accept it because they truly cared about him. He was so happy. I'm always pleased if I can help people in that way. Those people are the reason that I keep trying.

What Will Happen to Dick Cheney after he leaves the White House

This is my amazing, 100% true prediction of what will happen to Dick Cheney when he leaves the white house.
Upon leaving the White House, Dick Cheney decided to go hunting up in the Arctic wilderness. On his first day out, he saw a small black bear, which he proceeded to shoot. He felt something tapping on his shoulder and he turned to see a large brown bear glaring at him.
"You know, Dick, that wasn't very nice," the brown bear said. "And to punish you, I'm going to have rough sex with you."
After the bear was done, Cheney staggered back to his cabin and rested up for a month. Then he went back out, found the brown bear who had ravaged him, and shot it. A moment later, he felt something tapping him on the shoulder. He turned to see a huge grizzly bear glaring at him.
"You know, Dick, that wasn't very nice," the grizzly bear said. "And for that, I'm going to have brutal sex with you."
When the bear was through, Cheney crawled back to his cabin, where he recuperated for six months. He then went back out into the woods to find the grizzly bear and proceeded to shoot it. A moment later there was a tapping on his shoulder, and he turned to see a gargantuan polar bear staring at him.
"Admit it, Dick," the polar bear said. "You don't come here for the hunting, do you?"
