David Blaine Rescheduled Tour Dates

I just saw on Facebook that David rescheduled the shows he missed.

The new dates are in late November and early December:

  • November 30 PITTSBURGH
  • December 1 CINCINNATI
  • December 3 CLEVELAND
  • December 4 INDIANAPOLIS

In a new twist, David writes that you can see him BEFORE THE SHOW performing magic in the lobby! Maybe this replaces the VIP room?ย UPDATE: VIP tickets are available for these dates! I am thinking of attending the Cincinnati show ๐Ÿ™‚ UPDATE #2:ย I bought VIP tickets for the Cincinnati show!!! It’s in an historic Art Deco theater ๐Ÿ™‚ I like that David/his team have been choosing cool, artsy, smaller theaters. I looked into going to his last show in Indianapolisย but it appears to be SOLD OUT! The links on his page don’t go anywhere.

Buy ticketsย on davidblaine.com.

In other magic news, I saw the Criss Angel show at the Luxor in Vegas. I wrote a bunch of notes to write up a review for you, but the short version is it’s VERY LOUD! Like very, very loud! I liked heavy metal back in the day, but I don’t listen to it anymore so it got to be a bit much. I loved the video screens and how the video matched up with live elements. You’d see dust and debris swirling on the video screens (in a dystopian world), and then there’d be real debris swirling around the stage!

P.S. I moved to Vegas!!! So far, it’s loud and crazy!!! I haven’t even been back to The Strip since I moved here because my move has been so tortuous. Vegas is a fun place to drive around. The desert landscape is eerie, like Mars. Realllllllly good food ๐Ÿ˜‰ The heat (100 degrees) hasn’t bothered me much. The constant plane, car, people noise has, though. I’m still getting my place put together (furniture hasn’t arrived yet). Looking for a good part-time job. My other part-time job is doing cartoon animations on fiverr (newagestudies).

Doreen Virtue Video about becoming Born Again Christian

Doreen uploaded a new video about her conversion to born-again Christianity (August, 2017). She is now only writing about Jesus, God, the Holy Spirit and angels. She is saying Jesus is the ONLY way to God and everyone needs to get saved (in her previous videos – this one is very watered down)! Very different from her years as the biggest Hay House author writing about fairies, Hindu deities, Celtic and Native American goddesses, etc.

Are you ready for the TOTAL ECLIPSE of the SUN today? I am feeling very energized and antsy! Only an hour to wait here in Colorado!

I wrote on my Instagram pageย about the history and astrological meaning of the solar eclipse. Before British astronomers correctly mapped out our planetary system, people didn’t know WHEN a solar eclipse would happen. Imagine how scared they were when the sun suddenly disappeared!

Ancient peoples created folk tales to explain the sun’s disappearance. In Asia, it’s said a mighty dragon or an evil snake ate the sun. In India, it’s said 2 demons create the eclipse so people are told to stay inside and shut their blinds/curtains. In Tahiti, the people think the sun and the moon are so close together because they are making love!

Another old wive’s tale is that the solar eclipse is a king killer. Many famous leaders died soon after an eclipse of the sun: British King Henry, a king of Siam and other ancient rulers. Princess Diana died a day before a solar eclipse. Astrologers say President Trump (hated by many) is in danger because his rising sign is in Leo and this solar eclipse is in Leo! Another president at risk: Justin Trudeau of Canada. His rising sign is Leo also. I think the rumors that Trump will soon resign from office may prove true. He is acting erratically and losing so many members of his staff. Bannon from Breitbart news said he will go after the president in the press. How many more scandals and firings can Trump weather?

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.

Doreen Virtue’s New Jesus Book, a Bible Devotional

Yes, I called it! Doreen Virtue’s new book is about Jesus!

I just noticed her announcement on Twitter. It’s called Mornings with the Lordย and features the same Jesus artist as her Jesus cards. It’ll be out in October of this year (2017). It’s published by Hay House, who has been publishing her New Age books and cards.

MorningswiththeLord

Interesting to note that Doreen said in last week’s Divine Guidance video that she converted to Christianity in 2015! That’s 2 years ago! It was while she was creating her Loving Words from Jesus cards. I’m a little miffed we aren’t hearing about it until now.

Also interesting: in her Amazon author profile, Doreen describes herself as a born-again Christian. So, it’s official!

 

Doreen-Virtue-Jesus-book

You can read a couple pages from the book onย Doreen’s Twitter page. It’s a daily devotional, with Bible passages and prayers for every day of the year. She describes the book as “a great book for those desiring to develop a closer loving relationship with God and Jesus.”

I don’t think Doreen will be returning to New Age circles after this…she is digging herself a pretty deep hole. She has completely changed who she is! Part of me is disappointed, because I normally buy just about everything she puts out…it’s almost like a death. Or Invasion of the Body Snatchers. But part of me is giddy with excitement that I could replace her on metaphysical bookshelves – mwaaa haaa haaa!

 

Last David Blaine Live Show TONIGHT

IMG_2121

Magician David Blaine’s Live Tour is over TONIGHT! His last show is in Albuquerque (July 23, 2017) at the Kiva Theater.

He hasn’t rescheduled the 4 shows he missed due to a death in the family….I thought he would just tack on these shows to the end of the tour but he didn’t.

Leaving me wondering if I will possibly have enough money to go see him live AGAIN??? Depends on when he does the tour dates. Maybe he will add some more shows? I personally think David should do his live show in Vegas and then everyone could come see him there (cheap flights! awesome hotel rooms!).

Cecil the Lion’s Cub Killed by Trophy Hunter

CECIL_the_lion

Did you hear that Cecil the Lion’s cub, Xanda, just got killed by a hunter in Africa? The young lion was 6 years old and wearing a radio collar. He lived on the same lion preserve as Cecil did, and he also stepped over the invisible borderline of the park’s boundaries and was killed by a trophy hunter! The hunter likely wanted a lion head to mount on his wall ๐Ÿ˜ฆ Too sad. Lion hunting is still a big business in Zimbabwe, Africa. A hunter pays about $50,000 for the permits and a hunting guide. Crazy!

By the way, Donald Trump, Jr. has been photographed with a dead spotted LEOPARD that he killed! And a dead ELEPHANT. Sick.

As we ascend into a higher vibration world, the hurting of animals will stop.

I drew this Cecil the Lion as a tribute to him. Color prints available in my Etsy shop, black cat drawings. And a black-and-white version you can print at home.

Catholic Church Money Scandal

recovering_Catholic

I saw a news story today that the 2nd in command at The Vatican (under our last pope, Pope Benedict) is under investigation for TAKING MONEY FROM A CHILDREN’S HOSPITAL. How evil is that! He got $250,000 from them to re-decorate and remodel his luxury villa in Rome. You just can’t make this stuff up!

The charity hospital, which treats poor kids with CANCER, said it wanted to give the cardinal $250,000 of its donation money to redo his villa so the charity could do fundraisers at the fancy mansion! Hmmmm-mmmmm.

Whenever I hear about the misdoings of the Catholic church, I think about the awesome storyline in Game of Thrones about the Faith of the Seven. The leader walks around in sackcloth with no shoes, saying he’s just a simple man who wants to help the poor. But, in reality, he is working hard to get in tight with the queen and her family and is super power-hungry!

This also reminds me of Pope Benedict’s Gucci shoes! Maybe that is why he was pope for only a short time…. He had Gucci hand-make red slippers for him = the height of luxury.

I do believe the Catholic church/The Vatican/the Pope is going to fall due to the high levels of corruption and misdeeds in the church. As the age of ascension nears, it becomes impossible for people to keep evil secrets like this. The truth comes out!

Not to mention the super evil child molestation cases and subsequent cover-ups, which also reached the highest levels of the church.

Doreen Virtue Writing a New Book

In this week’s Divine Guidance video, Doreen mentions that she is currently writing a new book! Will it be about Jesus???

She also mentions that she found Jesus while creating her Jesus card deck, Loving Words from Jesus. I figured it was the other way around; that she became born again and then quickly came out with that card deck. Read my review of the Doreen Virtue Jesus card deck here.

Doreen Virtue Online Class about your Spiritually Based Business

I bought Doreen Virtue’s class: How to Grow your Spiritually-based Business. Late last night I was listening to her Divine Guidance video for this week and she mentioned a flash sale (it’s over now) for this online class: only $4! Normally, it’s only $11 and I’ve passed it up, but I really couldn’t say no to $4. I spend that at Starbucks just about every day ๐Ÿ˜‰ I bought it at shop.angeltherapy.comย but now I see it’s on earthangel.com. You might need to click around to find it.

The class is one video. It’s 1.5 hours long. You also get a short outline of the class as a pdf file. The production value of the video is not on par with her other videos (a bit blurry with a distracting nature scene behind her).

I enjoyed watching it. If you have listened to her weekly HayHouse radio shows or her watched her weekly videos, you’ve probably heard Doreen’s advice on starting your own spiritual/metaphysical business (like being an angel card reader) before.

Some of Doreen’s entrepreneurial business advice:

  • do what you love to do
  • don’t expect to become Bill Gates overnight; start out part-time and slowly build it into a profitable business
  • don’t spend too much money on startup; it’s easy to get excited and buy new business cards or a custom website but it’s likely your whole business plan will change and evolve, especially in the first year
  • be super clear in what you are offering to people; don’t list like 5 different things you do on your business card or Facebook page as it confuses people! better to be an expert in one thing
  • don’t be desperate for money; people will sense your bad energy and go elsewhere
  • if you are unsure what you’d like to do, think about what you wanted to be as a child – if you don’t remember ask your parents/siblings
  • brainstorm how your product or service HELPS people; be clear that you are HELPING them
  • be giving; give away free samples in person or offer freebies online
  • bless your products/services; visualize people buying them and benefitting from them

I thought Doreen’s business advice was correct and her delivery sweet. Towards the end of the video, she says she works for God. I actually like this idea. It’s very motivational! One of my favorite Bible quotes is: “Truly, God, I am your servant.” Always feel like God wants you to succeed and have extra money. Why does God want you to have extra money? So you can help others!

Doreen also explains that the American work ethic harkens back toย the Victorian era. This was a dark period, like poor kids stuck in awful orphanages, unsafe conditions in the coal mines, etc. The Victorian idea of work: drudgery for a mere pittance. Workers toiled away endless hours while only the boss got richer. After the Victorian era, new laws were created. The work week was limited to 40 hours. Children couldn’t work anymore. Lots of rules about workplace safety were put in place by the government. Eventually, the orphanages were dismantled and the foster care system created (not much better). It’s worth thinking about how these ideas still exist in the “must work 9-5 job” and “must work 40 hours a week” and “expect to hate my job” and “only the rich get richer” and so forth. In a more enlightened era, people should be able to be entrepreneurs, working how many hours they want, and making good money at it.

A couple online people I get business advice from:

T. Harv Eker. He is very motivational! One of his pieces of advice is don’t use the word “sell.”ย Like I’m here to sell you XYZ. Or the word “buy” like click here to buy my stuff. Instead, use the word “help” (like Doreen says) or describe how the product/service solves a problem for them.

Tai Lopez. Both have a ton of FREE videos on YouTube and Facebook.

Good Luck!
