Pope Disses Medjugorje

Pope Francis is quite the firebrand! Willing to go out on limbs and say things other popes won’t. I like it!

The Pope just visited Fatima in Portugal, the famous site where the Virgin Mary appeared and made the sun move in the sky. Very cool!

On the plane ride back, journalists asked him about the similar appearances in Medugorje, Bosnia. He said he doesn’t believe in them! This is interesting because one of the spiritual teachers I follow (I can’t remember which) said the same thing.

The Pope doesn’t like that the children (now adults) keep getting messages from Mary who tells them to climb the hill and meet with her at a certain time each day. In other appearances like Lourdes and Mexico City, Mary appears once (or maybe twice or three times), but doesn’t make regular appearances over years and years. I think the Pope is suspicious that the Medjugorje site owners are saying that Mary makes a daily appearance to keep the tourists coming.

The spiritual teacher complained that the Marian messages from Medjugorje are very negative. Like if we don’t pray enough, there will be another horrible war or a pope will be killed.

I read a book about Medjugorje quite a few years ago and I really liked how the children described Mother Mary. The book had a drawing of her on the cover and I thought it really captured her subtle beauty. At the time, I was going to a Christian church for mass (I felt really lonely and was hoping to feel more connected by going there, but it didn’t help!). One day, a church leader did a presentation about Medjugorje and said going there had changed her life! So I was fired up about the idea of one day visiting Medjugorje. This person led pilgrimages there every year, but I couldn’t afford to go 😦 I am still dreaming of visiting Lourdes, which both James van Praagh and Doreen Virtue say is amazing! My spirits have been dampened about visiting Medjugorje, though, which is in remote part of Bosnia.

Another thing the spiritual teacher mentioned about Medjugorje being wrong is that the children who see Mary and get messages from her every day are being controlled by adults in the church. Some of these deacons in the church have been reprimanded by the Vatican for making statements that the pope/church is not ready to say are true.

The other bothersome thing about Medjugorje is the children/adults say Mary told them 10 important secrets for the world…but they will not REVEAL THE SECRETS! Aaargh! Maddening!

The pope has a team investigating Medjugorje, but the Catholic church has never released its official report, which was due in 2015. And since the messages from Mary in Medjugorje started in the 1980s, they could have finished a report and said if its true or not a long time ago! It seems like the Catholic church DOESN’T believe in Mary’s appearances at Medjugorje, but the church is keeping the report hidden because the site and the tourists promote Catholicism?

I also saw a 60 Minutes piece on Medjugorje quite a few years ago. It was skeptical, but at  the time I thought that was because it’s a liberal news magazine and wasn’t going to promote something religious. But now I wonder if the news crew was turned off by the male deacons who “shelter” – and possibly control – the younger people who supposedly see Mary every day?

What do you think? Have you been to any of the Marian apparition sites? I have only been to Our Lady of Good Help outside of Green Bay, WI. I did feel a very powerful energy imprint there!

Watch Criss Angel Raise the Dead

That is the title of one of Criss Angel’s latest BeLIEve TV show episodes: Raise the Dead! I wasn’t prepared and started watching this right before bedtime! Super disturbing! I couldn’t stop watching it, though, and replayed it three times. What magician Criss Angel does is get a cadaver that was donated to science (a dead body). Then he has an audience member lie down on a gurney next to it. He tells her that in order to bring life back to this dead body for just a moment (he has a doctor watching for signs of a heart beat and respiration/breathing), he needs to take a life FOR JUST A MOMENT. But he promises the girl that she will leave the show the same way she came in (like hopefully not possessed with this dead person’s spirit!). She agrees. I would really like to interview her about her experience. Fascinating, but scary!

Switching bodies is similar to what the ancient Egyptians were able to accomplish: putting a dead person’s soul into someone else’s body or the body of an animal. That’s why so many pharaohs had the head of a hawk or a dog, etc.

It makes me wonder what these magicians do in their secret magic societies! Like do they meet at midnight under a full moon and switch bodies or briefly become wolves?

There is something similar in metaphysics called a “walk-in.” This is when a high-level spiritual teacher, instead of dying, switches bodies with someone else. That way, the spiritual teacher doesn’t have to go through another 3 years of potty training and learning to walk and another 12 years of boring schooling. They just resume their life as an adult in someone else’s body. Supposedly, the other person agrees to this and they die. Yet people think they are still living because their body is still walking around – but it’s the other person! Freaky.

A less weird thing to compare it to is bedtime. Where do you go when you are sleeping? You leave your body all night. Some people call this “astral traveling.” At night, you are out of your body and having “dreams” or other experiences. Native shamans can do this willingly, as well as buddhas and Indian gurus.

So, back to the super creepy Raise the Dead episode! I don’t even know if I should tell you the gross thing that happens! I covered my eyes during parts of it. You’ll have to watch it for yourself. Criss has 2 nursing students take the pulse of the cadaver and the live person. For a few moments, the live person has no pulse. And the cadaver has one! Aaargh! Scary! However, this isn’t the same as bringing back the dead. Because I don’t think it was the dead guy back in his body. I think the woman’s soul/spirit was briefly transferred over to the dead body. Freaky!

If Criss can do this, he can create a Frankenstein monster.

Rockstar Angels

rockstar_angel_quiz

While I was writing the previous post about the different types of Angels, I thought about a current day celebrity who is likely a Rockstar Angel:

Paris Jackson.

She is Michael Jackson’s daughter. So interesting! She has tattoos and piercings (very Rockstar Angel). She’s publicly said she had problems with drinking and cutting (also common in the Rockstar Angel realm). She is super fashionable and dresses very edgy (another Rockstar Angel trait). In fact, she has a high-end modeling contract with Chanel! She is very charismatic and I predict BIG stardom for her.

This week, in a video she posted on social media, she said the reason she is accepting modeling gigs is to make a name for herself so she can use her high-profile to help others. Remember, this is what Angels always say!

An older celeb with the edginess of the Rockstar Angel realm is Cher.

UPDATE: I was just watching a Facebook live Q&A with magician Criss Angel and his style is definitely Rockstar! PLUS his stage name is “ANGEL”! He is now doing a lot of charity work for kids with cancer since his own son was diagnosed with cancer.

My Realms Quizzes on fiverr

cupid_angel_quiz

Today, I am putting up more of my Realms Quizzes on fiverr!

If you don’t know, these quizzes are based on Doreen Virtue’s realms book and workshop. Realms are like human hybrids. You can be part Angel, part Cupid Love Angel, part Alien, part Flower Fairy and many more! I have included EVEN MORE INFO and MORE REALMS than you get with Doreen.

AND I have LIFE ADVICE specific to each realm!

I loooove studying the different realms. It’s very fascinating!

So, what realms am I?

I am part Tree Fairy, part Alien and part Angel.

What realms are Doreen Virtue?

Part Mermaid and part Rockstar Angel. I had to determine her realms as part of the certification process to be a Realms Reader.

UPDATE: Oh, &&^%$$! I just found out fiverr only lets you have 7 “gigs” at a time 😦 I have way more realms quizzes than that, plus I wanted to list some card readings and energy healings. Am seriously annoyed. Etsy doesn’t work for me for metaphysical stuff, eBay doesn’t allow digital file downloads. Amazon Handmade doesn’t sell metaphysical stuff. I had a Shopify online store set up, but it’s really expensive per year. What other platform is there?

2nd UPDATE: The “Are you an Angel?” quiz is up on fiverr, but I’m going to try some other, higher paying gigs like healing and maybe podcasting. After I get some good reviews and sales on fiverr, I’ll be bumped up in my seller status and be able to list 15 gigs for sale 😉

 

 

Was Princess Diana Part Angel?

I watched Dateline last night and it was so sad! It was a 2 hour special about Princess Diana and her death in Paris. This year is the 20th anniversary of her death (August 31). This Sunday (May 7, 2017), ABC will be airing another 2 hour special called The Last 100 Days of Diana. Even the title is making me emotional! I remember the press attention leading up to “the wedding of the Century.” Everyone wished they could be living this fairytale! ha ha. Little did the know about the reality of her life.

In last night’s special, the French ambassador who was called to meet with the Princess in the hospital (the first reports about her car accident was that she SURVIVED) saw her in the ambulance and described her as looking angelic. This made me think about the realm quizzes I’ve written. One is called, “Are you Part Angel?Angel hybrids have a “halo” of golden blonde hair and, most often, light blue eyes. Princess Diana famously had a poof-y, blond-streaked, short hairstyle. And gorgeous light blue eyes. She also became more famous than the rest of the royal family by doing charity work to help people! Another giveaway that you are part Angel is saying, “I want to help people.” Angels feel this is their true calling in life. And it is!

Are you wondering if you, like Princess Diana, are part Angel? I have moved my realm or hybrids quizzes onto fiverr. It’s a website where items start at $5. Check out my “Are you Part Angel Quiz” on fiverr.!

Criss Angel Magic: Believe TV Show

Obviously, I am a huge David Blaine fan and I’m going to his show for my birthday! But I started watching Criss Angel’s latest TV Show called BeLIEve (it’s available on Amazon Fire stick). The name is based on Houdini famously telling his wife to contact him with a psychic medium after his death. He told her a secret word that only they knew. So, if the psychic really contacted him after death, she should listen for this word. The word was “Believe.” But, according to Houdini’s wife, she never found a psychic good enough to tell her this password! Which is weird because I firmly believe in psychics. In fact, that is why I like magic! Some of the magic tricks seemed based on psychic talents. Like the mentalism ones where someone guesses what number you picked or what card you picked.

I think some of the other magic tricks, like levitating and making things disappear/appear, are talents from past lives. Previously, these magicians lived in Atlantis, I think, and gained great psychic abilities. If you don’t know, when Atlantis drowned some of the “black magi” = “magi-cians” moved to Egypt and became super-powerful pharaohs. Thus, there is a correlation between Atlantis and ancient Egypt. No surprise that Criss performs his Vegas show at the Luxor = an Egyptian pyramid-shaped casino!

I hadn’t watched any of Criss Angel’s TV shows since his early MindFreak days. He has gotten A LOT BETTER at levitating! Back in the day, David Blaine did some levitating in his TV show. He sort of fell over in a heap on the ground ;( Criss did some levitating and he didn’t get very far off the ground, either. But now he can basically fly! Supposedly, if you learn to control and direct your energy, you can focus the energy below your feet to create a blast-off effect, like a rocket. It is weird and freaky, but I believe they are both really levitating!

I have read Diana Cooper’s books about Atlantis, and she describes beautiful floating temples. To enter, you’d have to levitate off the ground and fly through the front door! If you weren’t an advanced enough person, you’d be stuck on the ground and unable to enter the esteemed temple.

My favorite trick that I’ve seen Criss Angel do in his TV show is make a stuffed animal come to life. It is so cute!!! If I was magical like him, I’d do cute tricks like this every day <3.

My second favorite trick I’ve seen Criss do on TV is turning on a lightbulb using the electricity from a PERSON! Tell us how to do it, Criss, so we can stop burning coal to power our electric plants! This is similar to Tesla, who said we can get energy freely from the ground or from lightning strikes. There is electricity all around us, if you think about. We just need to know how to harness it and how to safely distribute it. When’s the last time you got zapped by static electricity? It hurt, didn’t it? It was pretty strong electricity! And there is electricity INSIDE OF US, in our hearts which beat from an electrical pulse.

Even More about Doreen Virtue Christian Turnaround

I have 2 long posts for you to read if you haven’t already:

Doreen Virtue Bombshell: Now a Christian promoting Jesus

And “More about Doreen Virtue’s Conversion to Christianity”.

Now the question is: What are YOU (and me) going to include in your New Age beliefs? Doreen says she will follow: Jesus, the angels, good fairies, unicorns, but mostly JESUS.

I am unsure about this. I wrote on my blog last year about doing all fairy things…and then I could never get it going. I always post about leprechauns near St. Patrick’s Day in March and no one seems to like those posts! I loved Doreen’s descriptions of the different realms, and that’s what really got me excited about fairies and the other elementals! I am part fairy, I decided ❤

I like that the New Age movement has women, like the goddesses and female ascended masters. But I’m not SUPER into them. I would love to do something that promotes GIRL POWER, but I am not sure what. I love Mother Mary, but she has a soft persona. Some of her spiritual powers seem wrapped up in her being a virgin. I briefly thought about doing witch stuff, but Wiccan seems too dark. Maybe fairy magic?

So, I am a bit adrift.

I like Jesus, but I would never promote a church. They ALL seem too sexist to me!

Unicorns are cool.

I would also like to do something that’s about manifesting abundance. But, I run into the same problem! Should I use magical fairies? Jesus/God? Leprechauns? Unicorn magic? Candle magic? The goddess Lakshmi, who is Hindu? I’m really not sure! I just took a class locally about abundance and I decided to test 8 different ideas and see which gives me the best results. I will let you know.

Do you think Doreen Virtue’s conversion to Christianity and all things Jesus will lure women away from New Age spirituality? Are you going to incorporate more Jesus talk into your blog/social media posting? Or did you give up on the Christian churches a long time ago?

The Rainbow Connection Song

I decided to buy and download some ridiculously sappy, happy songs this morning to put me in a good mood! So I went on iTunes and bought “Sunshine on my Shoulders” by John Denver and “Rainbow Connection” by The Muppets ❤

“Rainbow Connection” has some good lyrics:

“Who said that wishes would be heard and answered when wished on the morningstar?

Someone thought of that and someone believed it.

Look what it’s done so far.

What’s so amazing that keeps us stargazing? And what do we think we might see?

Someday we’ll find it, the rainbow connection.

The lovers, the dreamers and me.

All of us under its spell.

We know that it’s probably magic.”

The lyrics are a bit disjointed, but I love that the song mentions “dreamers” and “magic!” My favorite line has always been: “The lovers, the dreamers and me.”

Kids’ songs are so optimistic and bright!

Healing Hint: Play some kids’ music! You can even buy children’s lullabies on iTunes, some of pop songs made into slowed-down instrumental music. And you can buy an instrumental version of “Rainbow Connection.” It’s good for your soul to hear happy songs!

Are Gnomes Real?

YES!

Many different cultures talk about gnomes. Gnomes are especially popular in Germany, in England/Scotland/Ireland and in Sweden/Norway/Finland. Sometimes, Gnomes are called Dwarves or Goblins. They are in many fairy tales.

What do Gnomes look like?

Everyone knows the Travelocity Gnome. That is a good representation! Blue or red hat, crumpled suit, wild white beard. Gnomes are little people (only 2-3 feet tall or 0.6 meters) with a very round bodies. Most Gnomes look a bit rumpled! They love working outdoors in nature and don’t mind if they get their clothes dirty.

If you want to read a good book or two about REAL Gnomes living in Ireland, look up Tanis Halliwell on Amazon.

According to Tanis, Gnomes live in families just like you and me. The Gnome family might live alongside a human family, like in your garden or your kitchen cupboards. When she was staying in an old cottage in Ireland, Tanis met a family of Gnomes. All the Irish locals believed this family existed and had seen them with their own eyes!

What do Gnomes like to do?

Gnomes are famous for loving to garden! If you are a serious gardener, you will attract Gnomes. They also like fixing things in your home, like your sink. Anything that’s working with tools, they like.

Where do Gnomes live?

Gnomes love to stay hidden and will seek out a woodsy, unkempt spot. If you have a messy, half-abandoned garden shed or greenhouse on your property, a Gnome family might live there! Other possibilities are a dusty, cluttered wooden cabinet in your house. One that you rarely open. Gnomes also live in hollowed out trees or a mess of downed tree limbs. Maybe you have a fireplace logs that have been piled in the back of your property forever? A Gnome family would like to live there. Also, if you are ever walking in the woods and you see a tree with exposed roots, like a hillside has given way or the ground has eroded, that is a great spot for a Gnome family. Their goal is to stay hidden while seeking shelter in a tree or wooden object.

What different types of Gnomes are there?

  • GARDEN GNOME = The most popular! Just about every gardener puts out a fake Garden Gnome statue in hopes of attracting a green-thumbed Gnome! If you are super-serious about your garden, you may be blessed with a Gnome and his family. While you aren’t looking, the Gnomes will do all sorts of magical garden tricks to help your garden grow. Keep in mind that Gnomes like places to hide. Add some extra big clay pots for them to hide behind, big downed tree branches or large rocks. Remember that Gnomes prefer garden accessories made out of natural items like clay, wood and stone. Not plastic, resin or shiny metal objects.
  • WOODLAND GNOME = Some Gnomes live out in the woods. They prefer a deciduous forest with lots of ground cover (fallen logs, leaves, mushrooms, moss). Gnomes have an association with wild mushrooms, but I’m not sure why.

What is the common personality of a Gnome?

Gnomes are a bit old-fashioned. The man will take the lead in talking to humans. He may have a gruff, manly-man personality. He doesn’t like too much idle chit-chat. He loves working. Besides gardening, he is great at fixing things and building things. He is serious about his work and prefers to work alone. He may leave in a huff if he thinks you aren’t being serious enough about your gardening. The Gnome children will be in the care of the wife and will remain mostly hidden from view.

Gnomes are Elementals.

If you didn’t know, Gnomes are part of the Magic Fairy Kingdom. This includes all of the magical little beings who work with the environment: Fairies, Mermaids, Elves. And the magical Leprechauns and Unicorns. Wizards are in a different group, but work very closely with the Elementals to get their magic done. Like Fairies and Wizards, Gnomes are able to visit Middle Earth. This is sort of a real place and sort of a magical place on the higher realms. Everything here is earthen and rustic, with mud and wood.

Sylvia Browne’s Fun take on Health

I was rereading my Sylvia Browne book, The Other Side and Back today, and came across her excellent view of health and how the media sells sickness:

“For a country that prides itself on being health-conscious, we are reminded everywhere we turn that we are actually supposed to be sick. I’ll bet more Americans can name six over-the-counter cold remedies then can name the first six presidents. Flu season is announced with so much media fanfare I’m surprised we haven’t all started exchanging gifts to celebrate it. Word that a virus is going around spreads more quickly than gossip. Not an hour of television goes by without HMO stories, news that some unusual strain of bacteria is popping up all over the country, and a barrage of commercials showing people just like you and me in the throes of everything from heartburn to headaches, constipation, diarrhea, PMS and sinus infections that apparently make little triangles appear between your eyebrows. I’m a big believer in staying well informed on health issues, but I also believe we are programmed every day to think that if there is not something wrong with us, there should be.”

A few of the comments she makes are dated, like HMOs. And there must’ve been a sinus remedy commercial back then with a triangle. But I actually think the media has gotten worse! Now, the commercials sell us prescription drugs, which weren’t allowed on TV back then. You see in her comment how she only mentions over-the-counter products for cold and flu.

The media is super interesting if you look at it from the viewpoint of what are they trying to sell us or convince us of? There is definitely some shady information in national news casts and on social media. Fake news is another part if the media’s negative influence on us, and is a big buzzword today.

Think carefully about what media you let in, because it will influence you.

I personally hit the mute button on my TV remote whenever a prescription drug commercial comes on! This means keeping the remote handy because just about every commercial I see on my local channels is either for Rx drugs or for shady lawyers getting money after car accidents! HIT MUTE.
