8 July 2018 Options (Drawing) and True Facts About The Octopus (video)

7 July 2018 – Strange drawing I did and the title “options” came to me afterwards.

As I get older, I realize that the thing I value the most is good-heartedness.
Alice Walker

Hello to you in your here and now.  How are you doing?  I hope this finds you well.  I’m still waking up.  I am finally feeling like I’ve got some rest but still not got my “Sim Energy Bar” completely back to full lool.  For those who have played or have seen the Sims videogame, you know what I’m talking about!

Dreams were happening all night long but none that have prompted me to get up and write them down like I normally do.  This isn’t necessarily a bad thing as then I stay in bed and get more sleep!  The only thing I remember from last nights journeys was a ghostly, transparent white face in one of them.

The drawing I’m sharing today is strange.  Let me try to explain what it means to me.

Source Internet: jack-storms-glass-cube

It started out being like a jewelry design.  Then it became something Jack Storms the glass carver/artist (https://jackstorms.com/) might make with the boxes on top.  Then the thought of hot boxes from space falling in the water and landing on a giant octopus came to my mind.  Finally, when I sat back and really looked at this mess of imagery, it looked like something happening to the earth.  The eye of the octopus began to look like the earth to me.  The gray line and three planets to the right came after that….hence “options.”   What are our options as a planet should something really big hit it?  My imagination run amok loool.

My husband told me about this Meme this morning and it made me laugh especially since we are tackling laundry this morning!

This video surprised me.  I thought it was just going to be another nature video until I started listening to the narrator!  Zomg I found it hilarious and informative at the same time.  He sounds like a variation of Morgan Freeman to me.  He managed to bridge the gap between humor and learning….”Clams are dumb.”  Never considered the intelligence of a clam before!

4 July 2018 Unity

Hello to you – hope this finds you well today.  It’s a holiday for us here in the states.  We plan to celebrate with family – cook out and visit.  My favorite part of any holiday is sharing good food and catching up with people I haven’t seen in awhile!

Holidays are a time to express a micro version of what the world could be but isn’t quite yet – one big family.  World unity is probably a word to chalk up to the ancient dreams of Utopia but definitely a prize to seek.  It is a vision I’ve always had to see the celebration of all our differences.  The people of this world working as a family.  Each bringing their unique pieces of thread and fabric to construct the world quilt.  For all the ways we are different, there are so many more ways we are just the same.

The spin of the World Prayer wheel gave me this, I think it’s beautiful.  I had to read it through aloud more than once as the language style is not what I’m used to reading or writing: 

A faintish journey do I make
As through this frazzled world I wind,
With heavy heart and weary steps,
But with determined mind.

Beseech I for a flicker of
The faith than can a mountain move,
And hold that tenet close to me,
Believing where I cannot prove.

The pow’r that comes when sinking low
To man who grasps for straw or rope,
Will clutch til has he breath no more
For where there’s life, there’s hope.

If my good turn be given to
My fellow man’s deficiency,
I’ll try to share my lowly gifts
Of Faith and Hope and Charity.

My deepest condolences to Tina Turner at the loss of her son Craig.  No mother should have to lose her child this way.

https://www.msn.com/en-us/music/celebrity/tina-turners-son-dead-of-apparent-suicide/ar-AAzxNKo?li=BBnb7Kz&OCID=ansmsnnews11

Tina Turner’s eldest son, Craig Raymond Turner, has died of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound.

TMZ reported that authorities arrived at Craig’s Studio City, Calif., home around noon on July 3 and found his body.

Craig, 59, was pronounced dead at the scene. He was in the real estate business in the Los Angeles area.

Craig was born in 1958 when his famous mother was 18 years old. His biological father is a musician named Raymond Hill. After Tina married Ike Turner, Ike adopted Craig as his own.

Tina is currently in Paris attending events associated with Paris Fashion Week events. On Tuesday, she stepped out for the Giorgio Armani Prive Haute Couture Fall/Winter 2018-2019 show.

German 12-Year-old Boy Plants 1Million Trees, Takes Over UN Program to Plant a Trillion More – By John Large 

“The world is a lot greener thanks to this 20-year-old and his army of “climate ambassadors” who have pledged to plant trees and use youth power to avert climate change.

Ever since he was 9 years old, Felix Finkbeiner has been an international figurehead for saving the planet. In 2007, the German youngster founded a global youth movement called “Plant for the Planet” – an initiative that trains and recruits kids from around the world to plant trees as a means of combatting climate change.

Since its creation, the movement has already made significant progress with the help of over 100,000 enthusiastic youth between the ages of 9 and 12—and he planted his one-millionth tree in Germany when he was just twelve. Alongside the Paris Agreement, Finkbeiner’s campaign is a formidable defense of the planet.”

Nature is Medicine — Even in a Prison Cell

–by Nalini Nadkarni, syndicated from Yes Magazine, Jul 02, 2018

 excerpt, use link for entire article

“The “Moss-in-Prison” project helped me bring my love for trees and forest to men and women in the deepest windowless reaches of the prison system.

The human environment of hospitals is in many ways similar to those of prisons. The “inmates” of both prisons and hospital wards experience extreme stress and anxiety, as their activities and fate are no longer under their own control. Interior spaces are stark and sterile—for punitive and security reasons for prisoners; for health reasons for patients. Their webs of social interactions are entirely dependent on who might choose to visit them; often these individuals are islands in a frightening sea. Behavioral psychologists have documented that the view of nature outside a window or portrayed on backlit panels can reduce stress and speed recovery. In 2013, I found a maximum security prison in Oregon that was open to the idea of showing nature videos to men in their solitary confinement cellblocks to explore whether this might reduce agitation, anxiety, and the violent infractions that cause injury to inmates and officers. We installed a projector in the exercise room of one of the cellblocks and provided inmates with the opportunity to view the videos during their exercise time—one hour a day, three days a week.

After a year, our surveys and interviews of staff and inmates revealed that they felt lower stress, agitation, and irritability, and were able to carry a “sense of calmness” from seeing the nature video when they returned to their individual cells. Most significantly, we learned that the inmates who viewed nature videos committed twenty-six percent fewer violent infractions than those who did not view them, a convincing result for the prison officers and administrators—and for ourselves. Further work is now needed to learn how this “nature intervention” might work in other prisons, and to understand which elements of nature were most effective in bringing light to the darkest parts of our prison system.

I have been intimate with trees—through the curious eyes of a tree-climbing child, the number-filled notebooks of an academic scientist, the borrowed lenses from people of diverse disciplines and experiences, and most importantly, moving the shuttle of a loom that brings together the intersecting threads of nature and the multiple ways that society comes to perceive and communicate insights about our world. Practicing natural history—and the love that grows organically from that action—is a critical thread in the tapestry that makes up our world, an entity that is complex, connected, useful, strong, fragile, and beautiful.”

4 June 2018 After the Rain, Dear David (Nuke’s Top 5) and book versions of movies

Hello to you!  How are you doing from where and when you are?  I hope doing well.  We had a blessing this morning – some rain!

I finished reading the book version of the movie Constantine last night.  If you have ever seen the movie, the book version elaborates on things they didn’t put in the movie. I really hope that none of what’s in that story about the planes of existence, especially hell, isn’t true!  There is something about the elements of this story that resonate with me on many levels.  Sometimes it feels like this country has a huge case of possession going on.  Not by opoids either!  Sometimes I read the headlines and the things people are doing to themselves and each other and seriously wonder if it’s them or them being possessed by a force beyond their control.  I have mentioned that when I’m in my cycles, especially this last one, it can feel like being possessed by an outside force!  You are in your body but the stuff you do is totally not you!  You have to ask when these mass shootings happen, “Who was driving that car?!”  (car meaning person).

I’ve talked to many people who look at the world both logically and from the spiritual aspect.  Many of us agree that with all the wifi/wireless transmissions going on all around us and so many battery operated devices like cell phones etc. that ghosts, spirits, entities from other dimensions are getting a lot of extra juice in which is operate in the world of the living.  The increase in technology combined with all the negative energy generated by so many of us being used as pawns against each other for one reason or another is creating portals for shadow beings.

https://www.livescience.com/52641-science-of-paranormal-ghosts.html – interesting article that talks about infrasound and electromagnetic energy fields as possible explanations for paranormal activity.

in·fra·sound
[ˈinfrəˌsound]

NOUN
infra-sound (noun)
sound waves with frequencies below the lower limit of human audibility.
What is electromagnetic energy?
Quick Answer. Electromagnetic energy is a form of energy that can be reflected or emitted from objects through electrical or magnetic waves traveling through space. Electromagnetic energy comes in many examples including gamma rays, X-rays, ultraviolet radiation, visible light, microwaves, radio waves and infrared radiation.

Kyle and I watch a lot of programs on You tube about stuff caught on surveillance cameras etc. and there just seems to be so much more strange stuff than their used to be.  Some of it you watch and you know it’s bullshit but some of it is really creepy and you can’t just dismiss it!   This Dear David story is one where I wonder if it’s an elaborate hoax or legitimate haunting.  There are some we’ve seen where I’ll get goosebumps all over and my hair will stand on end and I just know there is something there in the video that shouldn’t be here with us!

I started Cabin in the Woods.  Earlier in the week, part of our errands was stopping by one of our favorite places, Half Price Books.  We were tired of reading the same book for the third of fourth time lol.  So we bought a couple of books that are what I’ll call “candy.”  For those who are avid readers, you know what I’m talking about.  It’s those books you read mainly for fun and finish off about as fast as a candy bar.

We have both of these movies in our collection.  We actually have bought Constantine more than once.  I think it’s the only Keanu Reeves film we own now.  We don’t buy books or movies very often.   The stuff that we do get, we make sure we can watch or read much more than just one time.

2 June 2018 The Layers (Ancestral Trauma, Trauma in DNA, Intergenerational and Historic Trauma)

Hello to you.  How are you doing so far in your where and when?  I’m doing pretty well.  The subjects today are kind of heavy but hopefully this message is intended for more than just myself.

Recently I have been in discussion in an online support group about ancestral karma and it’s connection to mental illnesses.  I mentioned what I’ve noticed during my time at inpatient facilities is that people seem to be walking around with layers on top of them – like past selves.   As a sensitive person (Empath/HSP), I was deeply affected and reacted to these layers these troubled folks I was sharing time and space with were carrying around.  I know some of what was going on was the projecting of my past on to them – like seeing archetypes of family or friends in these people and reacting to them.  It was a very confusing experience!

2 June 2018 – my outdoor chalk drawing this morning. Thinking of the Layers theme.

I believe that our souls travel from one life to the next, one body to the next.  Who we are as people (how we think, how we act, what we are interested in, what we have an aptitude towards, how we express ourselves emotionally etc) is part of a complex weaving of DNA, blood, ingesting and assimilating into ourselves the elements from what we eat, what we drink, what we are exposed to via the senses day to day.

All of this tangible energy matter woven via particles around an intangible soul of energy…spirit.   It’s like we are comprised of layers very much like an onion if that make sense.  The ancestral/karmic layers unseen but like a cloak around us.  This cloak passed on through generation and generation to us to wear.  Some cloaks are very unpleasant and heavy to wear!  Sometimes made up of trauma, abuse, addiction, scarcity, loss and sorrow.

I have found through my experience with practicing and experiencing energy healing, that healing the inside first makes a space for the physical body to heal.   

Well back to the ancestral karma discussion.  In talking about “layers” in people, one of the group members shared this fascinating piece from PBS about the study of how trauma from past generations can affect the DNA of future ones:

http://www.pbs.org/newshour/extra/daily-videos/can-trauma-be-passed-to-next-generation-through-dna/

http://player.pbs.org/viralplayer/2365554485/ – (video you can watch if you go to link)

New research suggests that experiencing intense psychological trauma may have a genetic impact on a person’s future children.

A study examining the DNA of Holocaust survivors and their children found similar variations from the norm in both generations for the gene associated with depression and anxiety disorders. The findings imply that children of individuals who experience profound stress in life may be more likely to develop stress or anxiety disorders themselves.

The pattern — known as an epigenetic change because it affects the chemical marker for the gene rather than the gene itself — suggests that profound stress in the older generation translated into an adaptation that passed on to the next, said Dr. Rachel Yehuda, director of Mount Sinai’s Traumatic Stress Studies Division and leader of the study.

Scientists have long-known that parents pass genetic traits down to their children, but Yehuda’s research suggests that life experiences can also produce chemical effects in DNA. Similar research has been done into the effects of famine on later generations, as well as stress levels in the children of women who survived the September 11th attacks.

Although the study involved just 32 Holocaust survivors and their offspring, Yehuda said the findings provide proof of concept that could lead to more research into exactly how the changes occur.

The findings may provide an explanation for why people like Karen Sonneberg struggle with anxiety and stress disorders despite having never experienced trauma themselves. Sonneberg’s Jewish parents both suffered under Nazi oppression in Germany at a young age. She said many of her friends with similar backgrounds experienced similar struggles with anxiety.

“There were definitely challenges that quote unquote ‘American’ kids didn’t seem to have experienced,” Sonneberg said.

Reading this made me think about a subject I’ve shared about many times, Intergenerational Trauma:

https://saymber.com/2015/03/04/4-march-2015-intergenerational-and-historical-trauma-and-forgiveness/ – if you type intergenerational in the search window you’ll find all the other posts I’ve done on this subject

This article pertains to Native American and Alaskan Native Communities but if you look through history, this concept and study can apply to all walks of life on this earth at one point in history or another.

The Impact of Historical and Intergenerational Trauma on American Indian and Alaska Native Communities

November 25, 2015 / SAMHSA / Tribal

By: Paolo del Vecchio, M.S.W., Director, Center for Mental Health Services, Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration

Trauma not only effects those who directly experience it, but also those in the generations that follow. Dr. Maria Yellow Horse Brave Heart describes historical trauma as the “cumulative emotional and psychological wounding across generations, including the lifespan, which emanates from massive group trauma.”

The span of one generation is not a long time. In fact, an American Indian or Alaska Native (AI/AN) who is over the age of 30 is only one generation removed from the “boarding school era.” During this era, many AI/AN children were removed from their homes, families, and communities and forced to assimilate to the culture and practices of the majority population. These experiences caused a ripple effect of intergenerational trauma throughout Indian Country.

When discussing the effects of this historical trauma, many AI/ANs have been told to “get over it.” However, dismissing what happened does not help these communities move forward. To move forward, this history and its effects on AI/AN communities must be understood. This is not dwelling on the past, but ensuring a brighter future by addressing barriers and creating solutions.

As noted in the White House’s 2014 Native Youth Report, tribes, federal and state programs, and non-profit organizations are creating focused strategies to overcome historical trauma. There is a specific focus on Native youth and supporting their return to cultural traditions, practices, and language. Strengthening ties to community and culture have been successful in promoting behavioral health and supporting recovery.

One way tribes have started addressing historical and cultural trauma is by Gathering of Native Americans (GONA) and Gathering of Alaska Natives (GOAN). GONA and GOAN focus on the underlying reasons causing individuals, families and communities to become at risk for addictions and self-destructive behaviors while recognizing the importance of cultural values, traditions and spirituality in healing.

By reflecting the four levels of life’s teachings – belonging, mastery, interdependence and generosity – GONA and GOAN provide a structure for communities to address healing, and how to develop response plans and strategies. The GONA and GOAN are also important because they confront historical trauma in culturally sensitive and healthy ways that allow for critical prevention planning. More than just a one-time event, they are the start of continuous community efforts.

Hello again.  It’s one of those lazy, muggy yet beautiful afternoons.  The sky is full of those gorgeous puffy clouds that when you lay down and just look up at them you start to dream.  Lots of sky writing, “Thank you God for this beauty.”  It helps if you have the album And The Stars Go With You by Jon Serrie playing while you are doing it 🙂

Jon Serrie And The Stars Go With You Full Album

So today I decided to do something fun with my drawing.  I filled it with the numerical values of words like a puzzle.  So if you are extremely bored, I have made a past time for you! Can you find all the words? LOL!

23 May 2018 – Puzzle drawing today. Kind of had Sophie on my mind too while I was doing it. Sometimes I wonder if she’s going to end up being like the Borg Queen in Star Trek!

For some reason I have that robot Sophie on my mind for some time now.  There is something about this being they’ve created that makes me wonder if left unchecked if she’s going to end up becoming like the Borg Queen from Star Trek or something.  I worry about AI that is programmed in such a way to have independent thought.  We think we can just pull the plug and stop them and I suspect that once they are “in the system” there is no getting them out.  Do these robotic engineers just not watch movies like I don’t know, The Terminator for example?!

7 May 2018 Anniversary

Hi there.  Hope this finds you well.  Todays theme of words and numbers is in honor of my husband and I celebrating our 10th wedding anniversary tomorrow.  It’s interesting to me how two different words for the same thing, like wedding and marriage,  can come to different outcomes in the numeric realm.  The more I do this, the more I am beginning to see that when the 9 cycle comes up, it’s usually not a positive thing!  Speaking from experience and what I’ve seen in especially America,  marriage can come to be quite a negative arrangement!

How my husband and I began back in FFXI playing Prinzessa and Efess

As with everything, marriage is all what you make of it.  My husband and I have certainly been testing these past few years and yet we are still together!  I tell him he’s already got his angel suite putting up with me!

6 May 2018 Drawing and more fun with words and their numeric values

6 May 2018 – drawing I did this morning.

Just stopping in to say hello.  I’ve really been having an adventure with the numeric value of English words.  It’s been interesting to find that the values of different words, meaning the same thing, like Pyramid and Triangle, could come out to the same exact value!

Words that I explored the numeric value of this weekend and got some surprises:

4 May 2018 – I was having “trust issues” recently and it came to me to look at things from a numeric perspective. I decided to look at words, break them down into numeric values and see what the word meant after that. It helped me.

19 25 18 21 16

S Y R U P  = 99/18/9/2=4.5=9 (cycle)

19 21 7 1 18

S U G A R = 66/12/3/2=1.5 =6/2= 3  (cycle)

It’s interesting that both words, both addictive substances, have a “cycle” aspect.  If you flip either 99 or 66 over and they are the same number too!

16 25 18 1 13 9 4

P Y R A M I D = 86/14/5

20 18 9 1 14 7 12 5

T R I A N G L E = 86/14/5

8 21 13 1 14

H U M A N= 57/12/3/2=1.5=6/2=3 (cycle)

20 18 5 5

T R E E= 48/12/3/2=1.5=6/2=3 (cycle)

*3 I think of cycle as life, death and rebirth or a number that keeps coming back to itself even after you divide it in half.

 

 

4 May 2018 Sleeping, Dreaming and Healing

Just a note to say hello before the weekend.  We woke up to thunder, lightning and much needed rain this morning.  As I write, it continues to rain. We really needed it so I am grateful for it.

This kind of weather does make me just want to stay in bed!   Lately that’s all I’ve been wanting to do is sleep!  My therapist and I agreed this morning it’s probably just my body healing after what I went through recently.  That last round of a new medication really messed me up!  Ironically, speaking of the healing power of sleep, last night I had a vivid dream of helping a man a woman with the balancer/healing wands I’ve shared about.  In the dream I taught them to make the sea salt GANS for themselves.  It would be nice to think that it wasn’t just a dream and actual people may have been helped somehow!

The dream world is very interesting for me because my mind will incorporate elements of my real world into the dream world.  Sometimes I don’t want to wake up and want to just stay in the dream world.  Have you ever had one of those dreams that made you feel that way?

4 May 2018 – I was having “trust issues” recently and it came to me to look at things from a numeric perspective. I decided to look at words, break them down into numeric values and see what the word meant after that. It helped me.  I don’t know if this will make sense to anyone else but it might!

I decided to play the numbers game with the words dream, sleep and heal.   I doubt what I’ve been doing with this unique, but it is for me!  It has been very interesting!  Sometimes I have to wonder that if the numeric value of a word is odd,  can there actually be a positive motive for it’s existence?  Did the person who created the word to describe something like sleep know in numeric terms it would come out to represent a cyclic pattern?  Or is that evidence of a  power greater than ourselves at work?  The more I explore the numeric value of certain words, the more it seems possible.  What do you think?

4   18  5  1  13

D  R  E  A  M = 41=5/2=2.5=7/2=3.5=8/2=4/2=2/2=1

(interesting that Dream comes back to 1 or to self as I perceive it.  No one knows if you have had a dream except yourself.  There is no evidence of it even if someone is monitoring your brainwaves)

19 12 5 5  16

S  L  E  E  P = 57 = 12 = 3 (cycle) 3/2=1.5=6/2=3

(sleep is actually a repeating cycle sort of thing.  You have morning, noon and night.  In the patterns of sleep you are either awake, dozing or actually asleep.)

8  5   1  12

H  E  A  L = 26 = 8/2 = 4/2=2/2 = 1

(healing comes out to an “even” motive number from the start and when broken down comes back to self or the value of one.  Ultimately, with healing, we are the ones who benefit right?)

*The reason I divide the number by 2 is like taking a look at something with each side of ourselves if that makes sense.

“I am surrounded by rain, thunder and lightning and yet I have traveled without leaving my bed!  Am I inside or outside of my own head?”

 

1 May 2018 Michael The General

Hello to you.   Yesterday I was drawing with my compass and this message came forth with it about the angel Michael.  As I thought about him,  he came across as a sort of General.  Can you imagine what it would be like to be God’s literal “wing man?!”

30 April 2018 – I started by using the compass and this is what came forth for me about the angel Michael, a sort of General.

The reason Michael often comes to my mind is my spiritual background.  I grew up Lutheran and then Roman Catholic for many years.   These days I don’t go to traditional church services etc. but there are aspects of my spiritual journey I have held on to.  The concept of angels is definitely one of them!   I have had experiences in my life where I believe angels have definitely been watching out for me!   There is great power in personal belief.

“In late medieval Christianity, Michael, together with Saint George, became the patron saint of chivalry and is now also considered the patron saint of police officers, paramedics, firefighters and the military.[33][84]

My Dad was a policeman when he was a young man and I’d like to think he was being watched over by Michael all those years!  That’s probably why Michael comes to mind a lot when I hear a siren go off nearby.  I am always worried about all those connected to that sound!  In many cases it’s a policeman or woman, a fire fighter or an ambulance driver….first responders to the scene of usually some persons worst day.  When I hear a siren go off, I try to just say a quick prayer that everything will be ok.

Divine beings, or angels like Michael transcend Christianity.  When you take the time to look, it’s interesting to find how many different walks of faith have angels or divine beings within them.  I am sharing some links to other information if your interested to learn more:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Deva_(Buddhism)beings from Buddhism that are like angels in other walks of faith.

http://www.paganspath.com/meta/angels.htminteresting article about how angels are not unique to just Christianity

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Michael_(archangel)a lot of information about Michael here.  This angel seems to cross boundaries between different walks of faith.  When I did the “numbers” for this name, it came to a total of 51, which becomes 6, which divided into 2 becomes 3 which then becomes the trinity or a cycle.  The word angel comes to a numeric value of 39, which is 12 which is also 3! 

http://moonatnoon.com/puzzles/reference/a1b2z26.html (something I initially looked at when I decided to start using the numeric value of the alphabet to examine words and their meanings.  I use this system a lot now.  It’s amazing to see a more logical view of words we use in the English language.  This system, for me, helps bridge the gaps I sometimes have between my faith and reality.  Unlike people and words can do sometimes, numbers don’t lie!  I don’t know if this would work for other languages but it would be interesting if it did!)

A cycle is a  repeating pattern.  It makes sense to me that angels and a being like Michael,  created by human beings, would end up in this pattern.  Sometimes our faith is tested or we have doubt.  We will literally “cycle” around on a journey to either come back to believing or discarding our faith all together.     

Have you ever had an encounter with someone who seemed like an angel or divine being?  In the realm of the God of my understanding, energy, pretty much anything goes I think!

Matthew 7:7

Ask, Seek, Knock

7“Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. 8For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened.
