My mother-in-law is half again as old as I am. That means, when I have lived as much longer as my second daughter is old, I will be as old as my mother-in-law. That may seem like quite a few years, all things considered, but when I think back on how quickly the years since my daughter was born--especially her 20s!--I am astounded at how little time there is left to do anything purposeful in my life.
That's not necessarily meant to be a downer. It's just facing the facts, I guess. I… Continue

Ah yes, the proverbial graduation date...1969. What a year THAT was!
My mother had me going to what may well have been the3 precursor to a psychic fair. It was held in the gymnasium of a neighboring high school. My mother had me doing the Ouija board. I don't know if I ever told her I could peek under the blindfold and read upside down or not. I don't know if I ever revealed I thought I was just pushing it, after all, I was almost always correct! Guess that was my psychic gift… Continue

Chris, one of our readers, may have grown up in a haunted town, but I grew up in a haunted house. When I used to tell friends where I lived they almost always asked, "Do you live near that spooky house?" Um, yeah, that WAS my house. But I don't know why they thought it was spooky. Nothing ever happened anyone else knew about. But I guess kids just 'know', ya know?
One of the scariest things that happened there was with a picture my mother 'found' in an antique shop. Actually, the… Continue

Just for you from Trick or Trea---sa! Mwah hahahaha!!!!
'Twas Hallowe'en eve and the whole 'Global' team
Weren't tricking, but treating, or so it would seem
The psychics were psyching with cards, stones and such
Keeping the people and spirits in touch
Danielle had them busy, so busy in fact,
Deb, Phil and Owen hadn't notice that Matt
Had gone off somewhere for a healing, I guess
And somehow the party became quite a mess
Ghosts came to… Continue

Today Danielle forwarded us the story of a little boy who sang to his sister while she was still being 'formed in secret'. She had difficulty at birth and a couple weeks later his mother became forceful (ah, the mother bear!) and brought him into the ICU where he had been begging to come to sing to his little sister. As he began to sing, she was healed, moment by moment.
I suspect this mystical miracle was about even more than the healing itself in those moments; it was about the… Continue

I may run OUT of profundities. HA!
I am trying to learn to really 'read' my tarot cards. And suddenly I understand why so many people have told me I need to have the Rider-Waite deck. The deck I have has pretty pictures, but I don't think some of them really 'say' what they need to say in order for me to understand what they are saying. (Is that a weird sentence or what?)
Thing is, I'm not sure the R-W deck does either, at least not when I was looking at the Major Arcana… Continue

Here are some of the meanings of the animals I saw on my serpentine and spiral walks:
A raven represents: Magic, Healing, Creation. Magic is at play if a raven has come into our life. Raven activates the energy of magic and links it to our will and intention. With raven's 'energy', we can make great changes in our life. It gives us the ability to take the unformed thought and make it reality. The raven shows us how to go into the dark of our inner self and bring out the light of our… Continue

Day Two of Spiral-Walking:
As you may know, spirals are symbolic of the Divine Feminine. The black cat and black crow are both symbols of the Divine Feminine as well! As are snakes. Hmm. What's up?
Okay boys and girls, you are SO not going to believe this. Shoot, I barely believe it myself! My own mother kept saying to me today, "You're not making this up?" A friend asked me that when I first wrote her this, too! But no, I did not
make this up. I'm good but not… Continue

The first day of walking in a spiral...
I had decided to walk in a spiral for a couple reasons. First, as I mentioned in the last blog, I was tired of walking down to one street and turning around to return on the same path, even if my destination was a different street in the first place. I was 'mixing it up', so to speak. ;o)
But a friend and I were discussing circle prayers--this came up because of my dad and being attached to those annoying hoses for so long. I figured… Continue

Wait! Wasn't I doing something about the make up of the Tarot? Oh, I should check, maybe that was on the 79th day and I didn't lose that blog. I am still lousy at this! What the heck? ;o)
Today I am going to talk about my first serpentine walk. I hadn't really thought of it as that at the time, but as things go on, you will see why I look back and see it as part of what happened over the next couple days.
I was actually bored with walking, and especially since I started… Continue

Hmm. Looks like I started 78 before, but I must've lost the body of it because I don't see it anywhere. ;o(
I have a ton of things I've written for here, but today I am going to talk about the walk I took today and the moment of praying for my dad who has been hooked up to a hose to drain his lung of pus or something since his surgery a couple months ago. He thought he'd be better and out and about by the first weekend.
In a way, this is going to be going backward, as some… Continue

Boy, having your computer incapable of logging in to blog can really throw you off!
Let me figure this out...Thirty-one days in December + thirty days in November + 15 days (including today) left in October = 76! It was not that long I was without access, was it?!?!?!
Being prolific is one thing, writing several blogs a day is insane! Maybe. Maybe I already was and blogging has nothing to do with it! ha ha ha !!! (Or should I say, "Mwah ha ha haha!"?--Evil… Continue

How is it possible I took all day to write that last blog?
Eighty. Ten eights, eight tens.
in Hebrew has the numeric value of 80. Pe
is the mouth. It is communication. In the Zohar
(ancient Kabbalistic/mystic writing) it says, "[the power of] da'at
/knowledge is concealed in the mouth."
What is interesting, considering inside the empty space created when the Pei/Pe
is written one will find a Beit/Bet

What does one do when one is just too tired to blog but they've made a commitment?
I don't know if it's the hour walk and then walking through the mall trying to find dress wool socks for winter later in the afternooon or what. It could just be mental exhaustion, for all I know.
After all, I have a thousand things running through my head and I don't know which one is worth grabbing and making something of. And on the other hand, I don't feel like I'm thinking about… Continue

I haven’t been able to log on to the blog site for a couple days. Did you miss me? *wink*
Okay, so where was I? I had spent ½ as much time in my second church as my first, and my 3rd as the 2nd, and my 4th as my 3rd. I am getting more than a little disillusioned, don’t you think? I am part of the worship team in my last church. I lead a Bible study. I am involved with the youth. And I can’t take the repeats (sermons) and the politics and the same ol’ same ol’ one more… Continue

Yesterday my last paragraph was about Christianity—and actually, Judaism, as well—being a mere copy of Egyptian theology. At that moment I had a thought: I thought of Moses and his coming out of Egypt and Jesus, who also went down and came up out of Egypt!
And as I write that, I am reminded of a teaching when I took a Torah class. Egypt/ Mitzraim, which means ‘narrow place’ (something allegorically spoken of in the New Testament) is considered a spiritual journey we all are to take.… Continue

I have been incommunicado for a few days because I couldn't get on the site! I finally figured it out (thanks, Danielle!) and have somehow lost track of how many days are left till the first of January 2010 (2010!? Man!)
Here's what I was writing while I was 'away':
It has been a decade since I set my foot on the path that led me out of the faith of my childhood.
That is not to say I did not ‘experiment’ with my psychic side. I did. However, it was something my… Continue

So, today, should we talk about 86? Sorry to leave you hanging. And I realize I don't know/remember as much as I thought I might have to share here. Oops. My bad. I can only hope it doesn't cause you to "86" me from the blogosphere. ;o)

I am going to renege on writing tonight. I know I was going to pontificate on the #86, but I have another day of H1N1 5 year old care tomorrow and I just got home from laughing myself sick at the Comedy Works, so I am going to give (take?) a raincheck and I will try to tell you about the #86 tomorrow. Today I am putting the 86 on writing (is that the proper use of the arcane term?)
Thanks for understanding. Have to keep my strength up. And besides, I have my distance contact in and I… Continue
