Archives for the month of: October, 2017

I have observed that dietary changes is a natural result of listening to your body and feeling where it’s needing you to go in regards to diet. I feel that in awakening your body will absolutely let you know. In fact, some of it will feel automatic at times. Have you noticed this? You wonder for hours on end what you should be eating to help assist matters only to find you have a dream, a sudden craving, or some other odd synchronistic event and blam! Problem solved!

I’ve discussed foods and how they are known to impact your energy by working with the body, so I won’t go into that here now. But what I will share with you is how I discovered, during my “dark night of the soul” a spice that helped a LOT. It still has an impact on me, and I hope it helps you, too. Drum roll, please:

INDIAN CURRY.

I will say that curry hasn’t been a favorite of mine, at least not historically, so it took experimenting and cooking with some inspired friends who really like curry to get in the groove. I think its what you are used to eating. If you have children, trycooking with light amounts of curry; they will likely not like it at first if they are used to traditional Western cooking, but they might find themselves coming to like it better later on.

I really like Thai curries….red, green..all of it…but they don’t do the same for me what Indian curry does. Madras curry is known as the hottest, and curry, being a blend, really varies on who is doing the blending! Today, curry powder may include cloves, cardamon, ginger, nutmeg, fennel, caraway, ajowan seeds, dried basil, mustard seeds, mace, poppy seeds, sesame seeds, saffron or cinnamon. The mix depends on the cook. Curry recipes can be found in the cuisines of India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Nepal, Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand and the Caribbean. It might be me, my body, and my energy, but it’s also worth a try to consider the Thai curries. I like trying to use it in unique ways as well as in recipes that are traditionally Indian. I’m currently dreaming up some soups to try it in once cold weather sets in here. I’ll also be living with a vegetarian soon, which will encourage me to try this spice melange in interesting new ways without meat as such a steady base. And the great thing is that curry adds such richness that it’s a wonderful compliment to vegetarian cooking.

Curry is a spice that actually is a blend of a handful of spices, so if you find your tastebuds telling you that what you are tasting is complex, then you are catching on. I like to play with its pairing with sweet and savory as a way to use it to it’s fullest advantage, from mild to strong depending on mood, want, or mere adventure.

I have found that the hottest Indian curry wasn’t very hot at all, the chillies added were what made the hot Indian dishes so spicy. But its possible to get curry that is very hot, my lical grocery doesnt have versions that have been exriciating at all (you need the Thai curries for that, or a curry blend with a lot of chillies in it). I’m lucky because I have two very good Asian markets in my area for good supplies when needed, and lots of locals whose brains I can pick for ideas for traditional uses for curry.

So give it a try, but let me know what you think! And if you have already delved into curry and love to cook, I’d be interested in hearing what your favorites are. I know I haven’t given direction on how much curry to use. I feel that flavoring with spices is best left to your taste as you go along. Strong or light? Only you will know!

My morning window view

 

 

It comes in the unexpected moments,

with lack of guard

the inbetween

where the barrier to it falls

the heart melts

the self is returned to its primordial state

a glimpse

that returns again and again

until the brilliant flash fills and alters

changing you forever.

 

 

It isn’t worth wasting it

on anything but wonder

this sovereign moment

that owns itself

turning you over to a higher ❤️

a force that

forges you

bending the crooked

straightening,

cleansing,

purifying…

 

It can come at any time

especially when you least expect it…

making a lover of you.

In the work of awakening, the great stumbling blocks we encounter are the things we resist. And what you resist is what persists.

The road to wholeness and happiness is in the singular awareness that no matter what troubles you in your life, it all comes down to an inner resistance deep within. It does not seem that way when we get upset by the events and people in our lives that upset us, but what’s unsettling you is an inability to see and respond to things as they are. When you are able to see things as they are, without your own inner dialog running, you can much more easily accept that things are happening not to unseat you from your bliss, but that you are resisting the world as it is. You probably wont change the world, but you can change yourself, which is what inspires others to want to change, and many people all doing this in their own back yards helps to sow seeds of change. People have their own reasons for doing what they do that most often has nothing at all to do with you, but is more a story all their own. When you can honestly give them real space to be, resistance ends and we can accept that none of what upsets us is personal. We choose to be hurt. We choose to be angry. Most often, we don’t want to take responsibility for how we feel in each moment, though. This is resistance. Expect the feeling to persist many times each day. Or you can let it go. Was it really so important to your ego. Really?

All the great teachers taught how important it was to chang the mind. Even Jesus did so. Jesus is often thought to have used the word “repent” as the key term for shifting the tide, but he (along with John the Baptist) actually used the word Metanoia, which means to change ones mind. Call it a translational error, but if you ask me, its a significant clarification that really casts more of Jesus teaching in a new light. But I digress. The point is that all of the great teacher saw, experienced, and knew that we all have a capacity to remove thinking of one kind much the same way a mask of thinking or believing is removed (often with the effect of revealing a deeper layer of being and thinking that’s more original to our nature in the process).

So I ask you, how do you see things differently? It is all in how you choose to see it—the power is in your mind! Choose a different conclusion, choose a different assumption. It only seems hard if you have never tried.

How many times did you have something happen where you assumed an outcome that was completely wrong once you learned more about it later? We make all kinds of assumptions that are based more on who we are rather than how things are in the world. I have seen myself do this more times than I care to admit. But I do learn from them when they happen. It’s done by reflecting on events from the past and assuming the events are following the same pattern, but nothing is ever quite the way we think it is, especially from the past and how we have responded to it emotionally as we color it the way it suits us.

Now what if you could rewind the tape and assume differently using a whole different mindset? Maybe you try not to judge anything until you speak to the people involved, or until you check your messages, or gather more information. All of this behavior I’m describing says nothing about the world, it’s only saying something about you. Maybe you have been on the receiving end of similar assumptions before. Maybe you know what it’s like to have someone do that, completely convinced of the utterly fallacious script running in their heads, right? So change it on your end and it will be one less person doing this. Your greatest gift is who you are. What kind of you do you want to be?

I was once told a dream this guy had. It illustrates resistance and acceptance so well. In the dream, my friend would encounter werewolves. This dream would happen over and over. It bugged him. These werewolves would show up as these slobbering wild men who would transform into these beasts, menacing and chasing him all night long. It was really getting old and he needed a solution to this nighttime delimna.

One night my friend was in his dream and he saw these men coming through the woods. They had just transformed and came rushing up at him. The chief werewolf got up in his face. He was still wearing, of all things, his sunglasses! As my friend looked closely, he could see his reflection in the glasses. What he saw surprised him; he could see that he too was a werewolf! He could see his own teeth gleaming in the reflection as the other werewolf smiled with a grimacing set of teeth. My friend, realizing all of this, gave a chuckle and took off with the pack, howling and running like the wild things that they were. Oh, and after that, my friend no longer had another werewolf dream.

I can’t speak for him, but I think one thing is clear; our dreamer was resisting something about himself which morphed into fear and scary dreams about an aspect of himself he had been resisting. Once he accepted it, he integrated it into himself, making it a conscious (rather than subconscious) part of himself. Maybe he was afraid of what it might mean if he was a werewolf. But instead, accepting it freed him of fear and the trouble it caused and he saw these werewolves were all just out having a grand old time. He learned, I think, that what he resisted wasn’t about what he thought at all. He integrated or accepted it, and thus was free.

So for our dreamer it might have been fear of his wild side. For you, it might be something else. It could be any sort of fear that drives you…and very often these issues come down to fear of some kind. A fearless person is calm, gentle, easy in themselves. They dont jump to conclusions. Maybe you fear a seemingly thoughtless person. But let me ask; if they are being thoughtless, how could it be that they are being this way just to upset little old you? Let it be, give it acceptance, maybe see that it was in you all along, and you will see it all melt or fall away like a house of cards. It means being willing to change your mind, to change how you see it. Then, poof, like magic, it evaporates and any negative charge it had is gone because you changed it. This is the essence of all clearing of the consciousness to help reveal the true self shining within. And this self is more free to express itself. Energy moves more freely when you are not so resistant to an aspect of yourself that remains unhealed. You are, afterall, a conduit for an energy that was called “the water of life.”

Recently I wrote about my experiences with moving through time. I know it may wind up sounding like a boast, so I am going to provide you with some current insights that I feel confident will be verified very soon, a process already underway that will soon get very loud. You get to be the judge to see if I am right.

 

 

To lay this out, let me explain that for the last number of years I have been seeing clearly that there will be an “event” that will affect how we do business forever. My seeing has shown me that this would affect currency specifically, and I have studied alternative stores of value such as silver and gold because my common sense tells me that this would be what happens when currencies go in the tank. As I began studying these stores of wealth I found that physical silver and gold have been heavily manipulated by the big commercial banks such as JP Morgan and Goldman. The purpose of the manipulation has been to suppress the price of silver and to an extent gold. Silver has been suppressed through the massive contracts written by these banks which always short silver. These “shorts” amount to a bet that silver will continue to be low in price….and because JP Morgan has made this bet, the paper contracts flooding the market everyday has sent a signal in the market that silver is not a safe bet, which drives or keeps silver low. In fact, silver has been artificially kept low well below its proportion historically to gold. And why? This is being done in order to trick the market into creating artificially low valuations for silver so these banks can then buy massive amounts of physical silver which they have been taking possession of. This should be illegal, but it isn’t. It is one loophole that the banks can get away with legally. They write cheap contracts shorting silver and then they turn around and buy the physical silver to keep. To understand what we are talking about, we are talking silver in the order of millions of tonnes. Yes, really.

 

 

To see how bad this has been, one bank wrote an order for silver more than the yearly output of one of them largest silver producers in the world; Peru. Imagine the greed involved here. Banks are buying up as much as they can so they can benefit the most when they decide to let loose their grip on the metal and it’s current price (which is artificially low). But this is only the side story, so hold on.

 

 

For the last three years I have been seeing this event coming down the pike,and it’s a biggie from what my intuition is telling me. My wealth, which was exclusively tied up in real estate, was a real concern for me. I knew that if I didn’t sell my home and get liquid, I would miss this opportunity. My senses tell me this is a once in a lifetime event. It’s just that big. My guidance has been saying that this was tied to the devaluation of the dollar, and as I studied up on currencies, I saw that sure enough, the massive printing of money that took place over the last ten years especially, has shot a hole through the dollar. Remember “qualitative easing”? Yeah, nice term that has rendered the dollar worth less and less. Thing is, both the government and the Fed knows what effect this printing has on the value of the dollar, but they don’t care. It means everything is more expensive because your dollar is worth pennies compared to what it was worth a generation ago. If you make something ubiquitous, it loses value. If you could manufacture gold out of thin air, how long do you think gold would be of any value. It has value based on its rarity. So naturally, I thought that there was never a better opportunity to get into precious metals, which always spike when currencies go through a downward spiral. I had to sell my home if I was to be liquid enough to take advantage of this coming shift. And all events conspired in really the most amazing of ways to see that this would happen. It is a story in and of itself that is quite hard to wrap your head around, but is an example of how the right things will happen at just the right time for our benefit. I felt like I was squeezing in under the line when values for homes were at all time highs again, but just ahead of this very strange event that could leave people hurting if they were in the wrong place with their investments.

 

So a few months ago I sell my home, I begin looking at silver, and an odd thing happens. I feel a pause. My inner guidance is saying “It’s like silver, but it’s not silver….it’s way better than silver will ever be.” What the heck? What could this be, I wondered? So I began looking to see if I could find something that fit the bill. I was led out of real money and even hard assets as we think of them. What I found was the world of crypto currencies. Now hang on, because I want to explain something that my guidance is telling me is the decisive factor for why cryptos will be so big. They are a store of wealth that cannot be manipulated the way silver is currently being manipulated. And silver is definitely being manipulated big time, and who knows when the banks will lose their grip on silver. When they do, silver will go parabolic with valuations going from $16-20.00 an ounce to upwards of $200.00 an ounce and possibly higher. But who knows when this manipulation will end, right? My senses were saying this event is taking place now, and it sure doesn’t look like silver is at all involved.

 

 

So I learn all I can about these cryptos. And there it is…gains in the thousands of percent. Coins “minted” that are offered for pennies that go to hundreds of dollars. This is the kind of investing power I was seeing in my mind. Crypto currencies are entirely side stepping physical silver and gold and essentially saying “We are the new store of wealth” and giving the system a big middle finger in the process. The more I read, the more I felt convinced that this was it. Everything is now in place for the system to drive these investments into the stratosphere. That said, these stores of wealth will be volatile and they will be a roller coaster. They will go higher partly because they are an entirely new idea in its early stages and because so many people will ignore them or not see their true hidden potential. This is the kind of investment you will have to put away and ignore for a bit, unshaken by the tremendous highs and then lows they will take you on. But they will trend upwards and those who get in when the prices are low will be the ones to benefit the most. I suspect that within a matter of a couple of years another event will come along to normalize crypto currencies, such as the Fed/IMF (they are now the same if you haven’t heard…a real cause for concern btw) by I think either creating new regulation that slows their growth or by their issuing their own crypto currencies (euro and US crypto currencies). Before this happens, it’s the Wild West for investors and I suspect that its a small window in terms of time.

 

 

Im not here to give you investing advice. I am communicating what I have seen in my own experience as a way to help prove a point, which is that it is possible to carefully listen to your instincts once you have done enough inner work to leave the channel clear or open for this kind of guidance or inner clarity to exist. This is available to all of us and I’m sticking my neck out here since I will begin to invest in these currencies in the next few days, starting with Bitcoin, then using Bitcoin to buy into a whole field of small and big currencies. We will see how Litecoin goes, along with the new offerings that will take place in the next few months.

 

In the last week, all signs are that the experts in the field are saying very positive things for the next few months. While I cannot educate you about the block chain and how these coins exist or how most safely to store them, there are resources out there that can. Yes, this is a radically new idea, but it is built on a very old idea not unlike a contract. It’s just a piece of paper with words or numbers to identify the buyer and seller or the holder of an asset. With fiat currency taken off the gold standard in the early seventies, money itself has been little more than a crypto currency in a way. When we use a debit card, this is not unlike a crypto currency in that nothing physical except dots and dashes are being exchanged between devices…and yet you buy gas with these dots and dashes and you even pay your mortgage with it. Welcome to the crypto world. Except with crypto, it is meant to be by the people for the people, instead of a system that is controlled or manipulated by large banking interests. More and more crypto currencies are being made with algorithms built into them to keep them from being manipulated in more traditional ways. It’s moving so fast most of the banks aren’t able to keep up. I suspect it has taken the likes of JP and Golden by surprise. And who knows, maybe silver makes a surprise move, but I’m not going to wait for it. This event, if I am right, will happen with lightening speed and there is still time to get in early if you can stomach it.

 

While doing some research on another topic on religion for an upcoming post I had the following YouTube video pop up that has nothing to do with my recent activity on YouTube, which has been on crypto currencies. All of my cookies concerning cryptos are all done on a different device, so to have a video by a top predictive analyst like Cliff High is a bit odd. Let me explain that Cliff has discovered that he can predict events before they happen due to what he has found as a subconscious anticipation on everyone’s part of future events. This guy did predictive work for Microsoft for a number of years and he has tended to have a pretty good track record. He has managed to predict a number of market moves not based on normal analytics except watching his predictive patterns he is now known for. While the video I am going. To share with you sounds more rosy than what will likely happen, I feel it will be the closest at describing what this event will be like. It will be, I suspect, a transfer of wealth or the creation of entirely new value where it had not existed before. And it’s huge and hard to believe at first. It helps to know how right Cliff has been in order to understand how he is able to peer into the future for folks now that he is on his own and not bound by confidentiality agreements. That it’s popping up as I go to write this today is nothing short of wild. Here is the video:
