It’s different for everyone. We speak to the angels; we pray to our Maker; we wonder about synchronicity and are there really coincidences? How many messages from the Spiritual realm go unnoticed? Far too many! It doesn’t take a lot of time, study, or special powers to listen and react to little thoughts in our minds that seem to come out of nowhere to our consciousness. It just takes paying attention and believing!
Ah, “believing”! That’s the hard part. I’m sure you’ve always heard that many people “have to see it to believe it”. But what about “some things have to be believed in order to be seen” ? This is more than a play on words. This is direction, seeking and believing in an energy, an existence, magic, miracles, “unseen” phenomenon, which is beyond the day-to-day facts of humanity. It’s a whisper in the dark; a feeling of being watched over; a certainty that there is more to life than the superficial; a dream that is overwhelming like it really happened. Maybe it did on another plane of existence?
Alternate realities, Quantum Physics, Time Travel, Astral Projection, knowing something in advance, deja’vu, meeting someone and knowing you have known that person before, even if their essence was in another body.
So many unexplained feelings, recognitions, realizations, and inner knowing that may not always come from within. It may have come from outside the body in the blink of an eye. Don’t blink away the feeling, the message, the Divinity. Let it come. Try to rationalize it. When it cannot be rationalized, look beyond the factual to the Divine. Listen, watch, dig deep into your soul, look for repetitions. We must search for the answers. Don’t turn a blind eye. Open your heart and soul, mind and emotions. The messages are real.
CHILDREN WILL CONTINUE TO RISE UP AGAINST THEIR PARENTS
July 25, 1979 “As the darkness deepens upon your earth, your world will appear to many like insanity has set upon it: Murders will increase, accidents called ‘freaks of nature’, accidents that are not accidents. Children will continue to rise up against their parents, being encouaged by their schools, their teachers, their news medias and all of the medias that have been well-planned to seduce the souls of your children. And the master behind these medias is Lucifer and his agents from Hell walking now in human form.
My children, as long as you reject the existence of the supernatural, you cannot be saved. If you do not recognize the existence of a world beyond your human eyes to see, you will not be saved, for you cannot fight them. There are demons now loosed upon earth. All hell now is…
Does everything feel heavy and confusing and scattered? Overwhelming is the word I choose. Problems seem heavier; but by the same token, elation and life seem fuller. Such is the energy of the Universe–polarities, opposites, the good must be balanced by the not-so-good. Much of the heaviness dwells in our unintuitive, fearful interpretations. When we feel strong energy seeping into our being, we tend to expect bad tidings. Thus is such engrained in our primordial history, our roots, where every feeling was taken at its absolute worse-case scenario. It’s how tumultuous energy was perceived because it was a life-or-death necessity.
Yet, that was then; this is now. The Pandemic showed up a glimpse of a full breakdown, total collapse. We feared doomsday was upon us. And for many, far too many, their lives were taken, and grieving has engulfed our planet. That energy of sadness and loss must go somewhere. Everyone was touched by it. WE ALL KNEW CRIPPLING FEAR.
The GOOD NEWS is that life continued. We are emerging from the other side. We have lived and thrived! Yes, there is much dark energy to wade through, but there is also the flip-side, much love and joy and celebration to express. WE MADE IT THROUGH THE STORM!
We have seen the dark days. Now it is time to let the light back into our lives. This is a conscious choice each and every individual must make. Let the intense energy from the Universe that circles the earth be your stepping stone of happiness to the future. Honor our lost loved ones with beautiful memories and thankfulness. Do not let their sacrifice be in vain. They subconsciously chose to move onto the next Godly plain and let their loved ones remain from the most seasoned, wise elder to the youngest soul. Rejoice in their destiny!
Yes, heavy energy. Use it wisely with joy and peace.
This energy is but energy, positive and negative. We choose its polarity with our free will. Go forth, strong and unafraid. It’s time to rebuild. “Hope springs eternal!”

It’s rather interesting that most Divination or fortune-telling media weren’t originally written, drawn, or developed for the purpose of foreseeing the future. I was rather surprised when I first learned this. The Tarot, as the most used Divination system, was initially pictured, perhaps with hieroglyphics, as a representation for “The Journey” or “The Path of Life”. I state the use of hieroglyphics since many historians and/or Tarot experts believe that this deck of cards or pictures originated in Egypt for the Pharaohs and their families. It was tied exclusively to their religion. Of course, it makes sense since Egypt is the same culture that is acclaimed for being very evolved in their practices, beliefs, and procedures. Yet, there are other schools of thought about the birthplace of the Tarot and its early uses, but it is commonly believed that it is an ancient form of spiritual teaching and learning.
Here are some additional ancient and modern practices that I have found particularly intriguing and accurate for use as Divination tools that come from very different cultures, backgrounds, and uses:
Runes are made from stones or other organic substances from the Scandinavian culture to include the Norse and Thor god religion. It was originally a system of writing for recording history, sending messages, and directional signs or statues. Much wisdom is contained in these stones or natural craved wood “letters”, which resemble an early form of our alphabet. It is believed that they have been widely used for Divination since prehistoric times.
The modern deck of playing cards evolved from the Tarot with four corresponding suits: Cups became Hearts; Wands became Diamonds; Pentacles became Clubs; Swords became Spades. The basic numbers, one through ten, and Knight, Queen, King, Ace, as both the number 1 and the highest card in the suit, are used to tell fortunes as well as play card games. The Major Arcana cards of the Tarot were omitted.
Wicca Religious practices from Europe have used various everyday items from the ancient healers/wise women, mostly from herbs; crystals; nature; elemental faeries or spirits from water, air, earth, and fire, especially when combined with the directions of North , East, South, and West. Elements of astrology are also used in most cultures for Divination to include the moon, sun, planets, constellations, and their energies.
Halomancy is Divination by reading the messages and pictures from shapes and patterns in salt scattered on the floor. This most probably originated from “the drawing of a circle” from Wicca or witch spells, both indoors and outdoors. This is considered sacred space.
Scrying is also from witches or magacians, reading images and messages in vats of water.
Crystal ball reading originated from Wiccan practices as was reading images in flames in the fire on the hearth or tea leaves in a cup.
More Eastern European is the gypsy Divination of reading the creases and lines in the human palm of the hand.
Sabblemancy is Divintion from the rolling of dice.
Ceromancy is interpreting figures in drops of melted wax in cold water.
Mediums speak to the dead through channeling.
Alchemy is the ancient science of turning other natural substances into gold, but it has evolved into alchemical reactions on all organic material.
Necromancy is Divination through dead bodies and spirits.
The scattering of bones and voodoo using stick images to represent people to interact with in a spell seems to have originated in Africa or the islands of the Caribbean.
Angels, Spirits, and ancestral beings on the other side of the veil bring blessings, messages, and dreams to assist and guide those who ask for their intervention.
Even prayer is used for asking questions and seeking guidance from all religious deities.
There are many, many more. The use of the wooden tiles from a Scrabble gameboard, for example. Sticks thrown from a cup, like the game of “pickup sticks” or the use of sacrificial animals.
Anything that has value and an emotional connection with the mind, heart, and body is a good medium for deep, intuitive messages from the Universe!
It doesn’t matter how you “write”, just write it down! Your thoughts, your questions, your inspiration, your confusion, your QUEST! Your thoughts and ideas have value. How can you conquer your fears, elation, emotions if you don’t start with keeping track of where they lead, what you divine from Eureka moments, from Spirit, from a message coming to you from the Universe, from dreams? Open your mind, your subconscious, your unconscious, but let your consciousness do its part by keeping track in writing what you otherwise might lose in the hectic day-to-day humdrum.
So, this is the starting point. I have a dozen journals and as many handwritten tablets to shift through as well as hundreds of WORD files to access. Never lose sight of the goal. Never lose a fact that is a step on the journey.
For decades I have been actively studying spiritual and metaphysical subjects: history, evolution, divination, the soul, the Universe, our existence. This has included psychological pursuits as well because the development of the personal psyche makes all of these pursuits one and the same. This blog will share my findings and research.
I know there are many like-minded individuals seeking their own pathway upon this journey. I hope we can share our findings and our hypotheses on this exciting, evolutionary subject.
