I am creating animations on fiverr for YouTube! The animated videos are like cartoons. Here’s an example video I created about magician David Blaine and his infamous swallowing a live frog trick.

You can get a video like this with ANY MESSAGE you want written on it! And you can choose the style of music. See my new listing on fiverr (my name there is the same: newagestudies).

These short videos are e-cards. More fun than a paper greeting card, for about the same money. And it saves you the hassle of buying stamps and addressing envelopes! Just email the YouTube link to friends/family/co-workers.

I’m now on fiverr!

I opened a shop on fiverr called newagestudies. Fiverr is a freelance work website. It’s called “fiverr” because the offerings start at $5. So, I’m offering various things in my shop like animated videos and podcasting/podcast editing. I keep changing my offerings, or “gigs” as fiverr calls them, so check back to see what I have up!

I am starting to do life coaching but I don’t have it completely figured out yet. It’s going to incorporate the realms or hybrids that Doreen Virtue talks about (angels, fairies, mermaids, aliens….). Plus, a few hybrids that Tanis Helliwell talks about (rocks, goblins, trolls….). So step one will be to let me decide what realms you are in! I have this listing on fiverr: What Type of Spiritual Person or Realm are You? You can take a bunch of quizzes and/or I can read your photograph (some of the realms have distinct looks).

For now, check out my funny David Blaine video that I made for YouTube (and to learn the animation program I’m using). This is called a whiteboard animation, and you can get one in my fiverr shop!

My next idea is to design JibJab-style cartoon ecards for birthdays and get well wishes!

Kitty Cat Emergency

This little cutie is in the vet hospital with pneumonia!

This is my Maine Coon cat, Coconut. She was coughing (looks more like throwing up a hairball when cats do it) and sneezing once in awhile. Then she got shortness of breath (I saw her chest heaving and she was unusually tired). Just as I was deciding to take her into the vet again the next day (it was after hours), she started SCREAMING! It was horrifying. I drove her to the vet emergency room with my neighbor and we both thought she was going to die 😦

She is being treated with oxygen and antibiotics and is getting better! She might be home from the kitty cat ICU tomorrow or the next day. THANK GOD. She is my best friend. I have her sister, too, whose name is Licorice. Licorice is very magical and likes to hide in her “lair” (the walk-in closet). She will only let you see her if she deems you worthy (she hides from my pet sitter, even if I’m gone for a week). Coconut loves meeting new people and going for walks on a leash. She is very dog-like for a cat! She meows a lot and I love “talking” with her.

Coc-couch-roly

The vet still can’t figure out why she was screaming so loud. Maybe it was her way of saying, “Don’t wait ’til tomorrow to take me to the vet! TAKE ME NOWWWWWW!” My point is: animals DO COMMUNICATE with us! Not usually so loudly and dramatically as my Coconut. But do listen. This includes wild animals like birds.

Say a little prayer for ALL the cats in the whole world…especially the African lions who are so endangered now. Tomorrow is the anniversary for CECIL THE LION.

UPDATE: Coconut is home from the vet hospital ❤

My Realms Quizzes

cupid_angel_quiz

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: I had my realms quizzes on fiverr but I took them down. I am working on putting ALL of the quizzes in ONE FILE that you can easily buy and download!

 

 

My Jesus Book

Did you know I am a published author? Kinda, sorta. I wrote a short ebook about Jesus and self-published it on Amazon. AND you may be able to read it FOR FREE! If you are a Prime member, it will likely come up on your Kindle as a freebie in their “lending library.”

CLICK HERE to see my Jesus book, What Jesus Wants to Tell Us Today by Ellen Auchter on Amazon.

The Jesus I believe in is a happy, friendly guy like the cartoon version you see here!

Blog Updates for 2017

Each year, I like to update my blogs! I write this metaphysical blog, plus a political blog. To simplify my life, I’m lessening my social media presence this year. I was hoping to get a lot of followers last year, so I posted a lot on Instagram and a little bit on SnapChat and so on, but I feel like it didn’t take off as much as I’d hoped. In 2017, I’m going to work more on my political writing. There are so many juicy topics to write about in the world of politics now!

So no more New Age Studies on Twitter or SnapChat or Tumblr. I may keep the accounts up so I can retain the screen name, but I won’t be posting. Ditto Periscope and LiveStream. On YouTube, I am going to concentrate on politics, but I’ll keep up my short metaphysical  videos. I deleted the smaller form of this blog on Blogger. And I renamed my Instagram account: new_age_ellen instead of new_age_studies. I’ll still put up audio podcasts on SoundCloud. Basically, I’m just streamlining things by keeping what I like doing and what seems popular with people. Out with the old, and in with the new!

Also, I was trying last year to find a metaphysical niche for myself, like fairies. But I couldn’t get excited about that! So I’m going to be posting things on a variety of topics, mostly girl power (goddesses, saints, inspiring women), energy healing topics like the different rays of light and oracle card readings (fun!).
