FROM THE ETHERS
It’s Saturday. Can you believe it? I’m pretty bored. I’m guessing everyone else is too or at least a lot of you. The really cool thing about slowing down is you notice more, become more aware.
Because I live in Cassadaga Spiritualist Camp, phenomena happens all the time. Did I mention I’m in Mayberry? Quietude. One of my favorite things to do is to dust off the top of my dresser, which holds about 50 crystals and stones. I take everything off and put them back. I always take a picture of the end product because some of the crystals move. This time around three have moved at least three inches from their starting points. I love that! Don’t you? I posted a few of the pics on my Facebook Page – Life in Cassadaga Spiritualist Camp – Mayberry It Is.
Phenomena happened more back in the day, the day of no television, no Internet, no phones – nothing to interfere with the happenings. I was once a historic tour guide in Cassadaga Spiritualist Camp. I have seen pictures of phenomena from the early 1900s on the walls of Colby Memorial Temple. One had a group sitting in circle with what looked like a guitar floating in the air. Can you imagine?
So now that the country has slowed down, I’m betting lots of phenomena is occurring. Start paying attention to your surroundings more. It’s a perfect time to begin a daily mediation practice, especially for those nonessential workers. Teach your kids to meditate. Find guided meditations online if you’re just starting out. Lay down for it, so that you’re comfortable.
One of my students saw my Facebook pics of my crystals. She decided to set her own area and took a picture of it. It’s been a few weeks without movement. I wondered if she meditated in the room. Turned out she doesn’t. She did say she felt spirit touch her arm, though. Pretty cool. Give it a try. Set and area and see if items move. Believe!
Blessings of Peace and Love!
Lots on my mind these days. Where I’m going and more importantly when? I know it’s on everyone’s mind.
For the longest time, I wanted to write about: ‘I don’t like people.’ I don’t want to seem rude (there I go caring about what others think of me), but sometimes I just don’t like people. Raise your hands if you get it. I don’t like people, but I truly love each and every one of them.
Maybe it’s the way they think, or the lack of thought itself. Maybe it’s because I see the bigger picture when others do not. I see the path to completion. I know the steps that need to be taken. I’m usually one step in front of everyone, efficient. I’m sure I’m not only one in this boat.
Backstory: Early on in my mediumship studies at Cassadaga Spiritualist Camp one my teachers gave me a t-shirt. It was black with white stick figures on it. There were a couple on the ground and one standing. The shirt read: ‘DOESN’T PLAY WELL WITH OTHERS.’ I laughed so hard and gave my teacher the biggest hug.
In between writing this, my friend just said, ‘You think of everything.’ I’m like really, OK. It just comes to me. And now, my sister just called me for my other sister’s address. Never mind that they live in the same city in Wisconsin. I tried to pull it from my memory, but couldn’t. I had it up on the Internet in seconds. I know that’s not that big of feat. I like that it happened while I was writing this – synchronicty.
How ‘bout those negative nellies? It really shocks me sometimes what people say, even in casual conversations. ‘Hey, how you doing?’ Response: ‘Can you believe this or that’ or ‘we’re going to be in this until,’ blah blah blah. I was happy to see the person, but just wanted to get out of that energy. I sent love and light as I moved on. It’s not that I haven’t ever been the one saying, ‘Can you believe this or that.’ We all grow.
My biggest lessons this time around include patience and tolerance. I work on them daily and have at times become really good with them. Bottom line, it’s really all about coming into one’s balance. Being mindful. And always remembering ‘everyone has a story,’ and ‘I cannot control what other people do.’
Blessings of Peace and Love!
P.S. When I was thinking about a title for this, I saw my daughter’s Facebook post, which was a paragraph similar to my blog. I love that! The title was inspired by my daughter.
I have to say living in the 3D world has not been easy. I reside in Cassadaga Spiritualist Camp. It is Mayberry. We’re part of the unincorporated city of Cassadaga in Volusia County, Florida.
The Spiritualist Camp is known worldwide for its mediums and healers. Once you arrive, you feel it – it’s something in the grounds, the air, the vortexes, the energies. It is a very special place.
Imagine the energy. The Camp has been here since 1894. Think of all the readings, healings, gatherings that have been, adding and melding with the energies of today. Now feel it. You can do it!
I, and others who reside and do readings and healings in this space, normally do readings every other day, if not every day. We connect with Spirit on a continuous basis. I’m also a teacher, more time spent in higher planes of existence – higher dimensions. And then add the time spent in meditation. It is a surreal place to be.
Backstory: My friend and mentor, now on the higher side of life, would walk around in a daze most days. We often teased her about spending more time in her body. She had one foot in the 3D world and one in the Spirit world. Now, I know why. Don’t you love how Spirit brings that around?
These days I’ve been working a bit more in the 3D world, the rabbit hole, the left brain, yikes! I plan on doing classes through Skype and starting a YouTube Channel. I’m just waiting on the microphone. I’m slowly adjusting.
There’s very little traffic on these streets of Mayberry. It’s very strange. The Bookstore/Welcome Center is closed along with all the activities. The energy is still here, though. I do get to spend time with Spirit when I do phone readings, meditate and write.
When spending so much time in other dimensions, it’s difficult to turn it off at times. Being an empath, one who feels and takes on energies easily, can be difficult. I barely slept last night. My neighbor and I decided it’s the energy going on in the world.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: It’s really a state of being, a state of mind. So when you feel yourself thinking too much, worrying too much, going down the rabbit hole, remember you can bring yourself out of it. You don’t have to live there. Perhaps, spending some time in the other realm of the rabbit hole – meditation, classes and doing readings – would be helpful.
Many Blessings of Peace and Love!
I fell off the wagon. What can I say I am a spirit having a human experience? I popped my head up to see what was happening in the “real world.” Craziness is what.
I like to use Facebook to stay in touch with friends and keep people interested in Cassadaga Spiritualist Camp. It’s where I work. I’ve been seeing quite a bit of news about the latest virus. I got sick of seeing Facebook posts about it because I wondered if they were even true.
Did I mention in addition to being a psychic medium, I am a reporter?
My idea of what could be mostly true was to keep up with this virus through a free newsletter put out by the New York Times. My reporter instinct has come alive, which happens on occasion. I’m sure I was one in previous life. In fact, I was told that long ago before embarking on my spiritual path. On the other hand, I do have to trust, have faith in my intuition. We all do.
I wrote a post on Facebook the other day that is unlike me because let’s face it life is more than just about making money and living the dream. It’s about coming together, the unity of all of humanity.
My post: ‘As a former reporter (always a reporter), I think about the number of deaths associated with Coronavirus. I would like to know the ages of the people who have left the earth plane and if they had preexisting conditions. It should not be that difficult to get that information. I've seen articles on how Google and Verizon are compiling stats. Why isn't the former available? Come to think about it, what about the names of these people? The names of the people who left the earth plane on 911, and their ages are easily available. Why hasn't that information on the Coronavirus been released? Something to think about.’
I had quite a few likes to include my former editor. I also had about 20 comments to include HIPAA laws, duh. My response was we can still get the ages and health information without the names. Finally, I wrote: ‘My whole point of this is if it's a specific age group and other medical conditions that are causing people to leave this earth plane, then those people should be quarantined. It's a virus people. Wake-up!’
When I woke up the next morning, the first video shown to me on YouTube was MSNBC’s Edward Snowden interview in September of 2019. I watched it. More craziness revealed. But more to the point, yes, Big Brother is watching you.
And now in the State of Florida, we are quarantined. The government thinks it’s safer to go to a grocery store, rather than the beach. Better to do your laundry at a laundromat because the government does not want you to hang out with family. Why?
Some of my friends on Facebook joke about having to be quarantined with their spouse/life partner and children. Puleazee, take if from someone who is single, there’s more to do when there are more people to be quarantined with – a no-brainer.
Finally, John Cardillo @johncardillo wrote in a post: ‘A tough question is coming, but to me the answer is simple. Do you shut down and destroy the most generous, prosperous, powerful, and genuinely good nation in the history of world for a virus with a 1-2% mortality rate? No, no you don’t. To argue otherwise is moronic.’
There are roughly 7.8 billion people on this earth plane, and as of yesterday just over 1 million have gotten the virus. I’m sure it will grow. Look back in history and see the numbers around other pandemics – AIDS/HIV (2005-2012) killed 36 million, the Plague of Justinian (541-542) killed 25 million, thought to have been half of the population in Europe.
The bottom line is people are operating from FEAR. Fear of what? Death. Wake up, decide what your belief system is and have faith in it. Fear will disappear.
One last thought: Face Everything And Rise.
Blessings of Peace and Love!.
