My Non Verbatim Show Notes:

SH: moved to n. vermont last summer, 9 months, working weekly, individual retreats, deep psycho spiritual work, I work with the psyche, work with it in a medicine woman way, also very psychic very intuitive, use other methodologies, they don’t teach in the regular institutional environment

appreciate that approach of exploring the deep shadow nature, working with dreams, utilizing cards, astrology, bring all of that to the table, ability to key into the persons unconscious, listening between and beneath the words their sharing, love what I do, been very fortunate, my work is really at this point referrals, that has been just wonderful

that’s where I’m at, got a little property, conjured this property, apprenticed myself to the mushroom, 10th year of apprenticeship to that teacher, power of heart, mind, doesn’t give all the answers, gives clues, so I can do my digging

live like a nun, I do these retreats with a different beautiful person, on the weekends, books and research

so excited its almost finished, put in a labyrinth on my land, 60 foot diameter, big, 7 circuit labyrinth, looks very much like the brain,

very much a warrior, what I feel like right now, really in a battle right now, very ancient, spiritual battle, it’s a battle for all life on earth, what I feel is its all about frequency, they want to launch that 5g everywhere, planetary very serious matter, I’m sure they’ll lay way more of those while everyone is self quarantining and out of the way so these guys can get the rest of what they want done

labyrinth is counter force to that, we had extraordinary power, power of our minds, minds have been hacked, been going on for some time, quite a number of late, everyone is in an absolute hysterical panic, with incredible unprecedented fear porn everywhere you look now, took away all the sports, no really way to escape, so many people are just glued to their sets, having this shit repeated over and over and over, that is mind control

you cannot access the higher order thinking, you can’t access reason when you’re fear, guess what else fear does it suppresses the immune system

these are unprecedented times, and I smell a rat, no pun in intended, what do rats bring, pandemic, rat someone who can’t be trusted

where we are in all of that

my intention is to be a counter force to that

begins with each one of us individually

TP: immune system narrative?

SH: the last druid documentary, older gentleman in Ireland, knowledge of druids passed down carefully, so much, the training starts when they’re young, him and two other men, triune, each one holding information, fascinated documentary, take away, “when a society loses connection to god” (architect of nature, call it god shamelessly) “then the technology of that society becomes evil”

we are spirit in matter, listening to doctor Thomas Cowen MD, The Four Fold Path to Healing, real doctor, traditional food, traditional wisdom, common sense, student of Rudolph Steiner, for humanity to evolve in the right way, the heart is not a pump, the heart will stop the blood and put it into a vortex, sends it on pathway through rest of the body, sufis speak of a moment when the heart stops in between each beat, that’s when god enters the human being, that’s when the human being is given spirit

what you hear about the space between the words, is where god resides if you will

the understanding that the heart is a vortex, Victor, the water wizard, Viktor Schauberger, documentary, all about water, he understand vortexes, in the heart, spirit interfaces with matter, immune system very interesting, 70-75% immune system in the gut, we are earth, the microcosm of earth, made up of composites from earth and space, our gut is like the soil, the soil in the garden needs lots of beneficial bacteria, every so often pathogenic bacteria, never able to take up residence, teaming with healthy bacteria so it keeps it out

we’ve taken quite a beating through the 20th-21st century, the beating continues

anti-biotics obliderated healthy gut, starts with babies, ear infection, anti biotics

vaccines, aluminum and mercury, very devastating

what’s it gonna take for people to wake up

china’s not reporting anymore cases, numbers are going down in Korea, something’s very wrong here, someone has taken this and just run with it, what a fabulous excuse to implement measures that no one would agree to

give over all their rights for their safety

this has been talked about for some time, people label these people conspiracy theorists, asking uncomfortable questions, uncomfortable truths,

very much want us on a digital currency, when we go cashless my god, little extra tip, whatever, any kind of financial autonomy, it will all be digitalized, highly surveiled, on chinese social credit system, if your opinions, then your money could disappear,

if those people want to book tickets, call a friend a warning will come up on their friends phone, heading into some really scary territory

they are able to use the media for full propaganda

if it worked during war time, it should be used in peace time

diabolical manipulation

we’ve been propagandized, deeply conditioned, prussian education system

all about individual, think for yourself, not get sucked into divisive narratives

they want us fighting

socially engineered narratives

the big boys are moving the chess pieces

so the first order of business, get off the damn media,

the only news there is, and apparently no one’s dying of anything else, just this, incessant, it’s demoralizing, it’s disempowering, biggest thing, they’re crashing the economy, not just in this country, we’re actually at war is what’s going on here

this is an economic war, I can promise one thing, china will be right as rain, back up and running in no time

would not be surprised, interest rates at zero, guess who’s gonna come in and buy up everything for pennies on the dollar

first detox off of that press, start taking really exceptional care of our bodies

colloidal silver is very important, mainstream media been knocking, that’s your que, pic some up, vitamin c, very helpful, ways to get vitamin c, one of the best is through sour krout, build up gut micro biome, ferments are fantastic,

gotta get off the sugar, can’t eat it, suppresses immune system

we’re gonna learn so much from this, our system is such a mess, a number of people are living paycheck to paycheck, waiting tables until almost 30, really our ancestors, before the depression, they always put money away

you put money away for a rainy day, you’d have food stored, that was just common sense, seduced over 20th century to become consumerist

everything’s convenient, all at our finger tips, people froze to death in their condos, that is crazy, how ironic is that that that would happen

we’ve really lost ourselves, what I see is a silver lining hopefully is that, this becomes a time where we really start to grow up and become really independent and proactive in terms of taking the bull by the horns, taking care of our bodies, not indulging

just had such a bad day so I deserve this

all well and good, does catch up with you, food out there is really harming people so we need to take that into our own hands

I’m all about the individual, and community, but the right community

don’t want to be put in with a bunch of people I have nothing in common with

I think we’re gonna see more communities coming together to grow food

local is great, people used to have gardens, animals, chicken, goats, cow, pigs,

stuff got canned, maybe we can have more of that

love the idea of city gardens, some speaker from detroit at a conference, you know what we do with empty lots we til them

entirely doable, maybe we’ll see more of that out of necessity

SH: Stiener, virus, extretion of poison from a cell, small pox, the poison is fear, that’s very interesting, I’ve heard a number of people say corona is really a mind virus, stiener said, the poinse is the fear, once he has eradicated the fear, he would be able to help others with small pox

florence nighengale, famous nurse, wasn’t afraid, had no fear, that’s why she never got infected, never got sick, power of the mind, mushrooms have been teaching me, the power of our minds, that is that the snake charmers, in india, men and women, in order to handle these deadly poisonous snakes, they had to eradicate the fear, the women never got bit, some times the men, it would be an ego thing, had to prove they could do it, they would get, in those times, when they were very hyper disciplined, had completely eradicated any kind of fear, they could be in this very calm state and connect with that snake, and hold it without getting bit

very interesting, rudoph stiener, genious, could see spirits, clairvoyant, claircognization,

biodynamic farming, lectures stiener gave at waldorph schools, theosophy movement

spiritual science, anthroposophy, combining wisdom of ancients with science, he did not see viruses as something you catch, excretions of the poisoned cell, electricity, that changed nature changed our body systems dramatically, we didn’t have electricity before that, radio waves, a whole new frequency we were not accustomed to, health went down at that time, as that increases it will limiit human kinds ability to be human and to be spiritually connected, so much of this technology is doing as well, our cells are poisoned, from all these vaccines, all the garbage in the food, environmental toxins, the piece around fear

so imprisoned in this conditioning we’ve received, constantly looking outside of ourselves for everything

look at the associations, all these doctors being paraded out, they’ve got the white coats, the badge, uniform, it’s a costume, associations with that, conditioned to look to that person as our authority, what they advocate is downright harmful

not just cause they’re not eating right, the power of our own minds, we’ve barely tapped what we are capable of

this is what the mushroom has shown me, we are magical beings if you will

we always have been, at some point, as each race was taken over, by this roman machine if you will, civil system, all about enslavement, the elders would be murdered, the young would be raised under the umbrella of that narrative, aftera couple generation there goes the story, the wisdom, connection to the ancestors, creator gods gone,

if they don’t realize that they are holding tremendous power, they’ll never realize that power, they never will, that’s non sense that’s nothing, so it shall be

I have done a number of my own experiments in my own life, the power of my own mind, what’s hilarious is, this just occurred to me this past fall, I’ve had a life time, aries woman, very sort of go go go, suffered from chronic worry for the better part of my life, crippling self doubt, I think that’s what they call anxiety, would never occur to medicate, I gotta figure this out

mushroom help me realize the power of my own mind, I’ve been conjuring, and what I want to do now is bring that out into the great world in terms of what I’m conjuring and invisioning, frequency as well, using earth technologies like a labyrinth or round towers of ireland, stone circles are earth technologies, we have so much within us it

its’ in the mind, our minds have been so hacked, you want to talk about detox, start with the media, get a way from that, it takes over the mind

saying, you can’t serve two masters, either ceaser or god

internet has taken over people consciousness, people go right to their device, that has become their consciousness in a way, it just occurred to me

the power of the mind, it’s untapped

SH: put your hands in the garden soil, let that dirt get in your finger nails, that how we used to fend off any kind of disease or illness, exposing ourselves to all the microbes and all of that, get those ferments into your diet, yogurt, sour krout, coconut yogurt, probiotics, beat cavas, tonic, all of these foods have been apart of humanity’s diet in various forms for millennia, it was how we preserved our food, we fermented it, gave us strong guts, vigorous health, first order of business

cut out all sugar, that includes alcohol, that’s got to go

lot of different diets, I look to grandmother wisdom foods, broth would be a really good thing to have in your diet

chicken broth, jewish penicillin,

broth would wake the dead, fed to people on death bed, nursed back to health, through broth loaded with minerals taken into the body

if you’re vegan, than do seaweed broth, sea minerals, certainly help you

beeler broth, in the back of nourishing traditions, sally fallon’s book, compendium of grandmother wisdom foods, there’s that,

people have addictions, so addicted to a lot of these salty fast foods

so again this is boy are we in grow up time, we are in grow up time

we’re gonna have to be really proactive and manage our own health

there’s another old saying, govern yourself lest ye be governed

do you want the cdc and who to dictate what you should do what your body

sovereign can no longer make excuses for his failures

this is about being autonomous, gaining that second education

being proactive, do some research, do your research

always say look to nature and the ancients as your teacher

you wont be led astray you just wont

also suggest, go on youtube and type in the top 10 logical fallacies, fallacious arguments, get those all the time

go on triviumeducation.com, start learning the basics of the trivium, grammar, logic, rhetoric, critical thinking have to reactivate that

remember when people are in fear, you can’t access reason, how are you going to make any intelligent decisions, how are you gonna know when to question the narrative

detox from that media, smart people just don’t see through it, I’m just incredulous

have to start doing just that

align yourself with other people who have eyes to see and ears to hear, who are not readily easily seduced who are coming up with their own innovative solutions

I really think the community garden thing is so key

look to our ancestors

Joel Salatin, I do read his blog, today, listen my goodness, before the depression hit, artificially constructed, people had great common sense, always had extra food, larder, that’s a place where you do canning, you keep the bounty of what you grew over the summer,

hopefully see more after this shit show clears, more communities people coming together, growing food, saving seeds, learning basic know

My Non Verbatim Notes:

Corona virus 5 tips to stay positive

gone through tons of profound trauma, going through a traumatic time can be good

personal experience, trauma helped me prepared for times like this

get suited and booted, bring the guns out cuz we already know what that’s like

going through trauma strengthens you

when you’ve had trauma, you know here we go again, its time for me to bring my guns out and fight with life

don’t let it bring you down

personal experience, all traumas, time of transformation, completely transformed me on every level, cellular, physically, energetically

trauma is transformation

not a time to fall into hysteria

a lot of people, hysteria spreading like wild fire, people freaking out

I understand being cautious and take care of your self to not get sick, and not infect other people

take a step back, question mental health, not to judge, is it really necessary to be hysterical

falling into the trap of hysteria is a way of operating on a lower frequency, done with lack of awareness, lack of higher consciousness

operating from higher consciousness, hysteria/trauma around you, you’re able to see with keen awareness, it could always be worse

we’ve made it as an evolution this far, why not take notes on how people have survived

first time in 5 tips for how to stay positive, trust

we’ve made it this far, to freak out to the point where you think the whole world is going to end is irrational

trust in mother earth

beginning of time, life continues to go on, the universe is very sustainable

universe knows exactly what its doing

corona virus is a time for people to heal

great time for universe to heal, all of our systems to heal, coming out of a capitalistic mindset that’s no longer serving the collective, the global consciousness

opportune time to rest and recharge

time to go within

time for systems to be rebuilt

even in nature, there is a phase of hibernation, or rest, before the seed sprouts, time to reset, a system cannot be recalibrated without taking that time for pause and recluse, time to recharge

many systems that are failing, I honestly believe all the systems are failing, judicial, church, corporations, just not getting it right, hierarchical platform no longer serving themselves, each other, the earth

all systems currently failing, time to reset and recharge

connect with yourself

use this as a time to really connect with manifestation, what do you want to see the new world like

the earth is suffering, universe is exhausted, can’t keep operating the same way

what am I gonna do to change things moving forward

make changes within your being that will offset, recalibrate where you were before

shock to planet, to humanity, to be called to go within

evolve

constantly doing the same bs, gossiping about people, watching tv, feeding ourselves with all this bs, lowering frequency

universe shifting on higher frequency

I struggle with how can I connect with myself more, how can I choose to love myself more, what can I give myself today usually things that aren’t comfortable

so easy to go shopping, go out to eat

I think it’s a blessing

connect to your feet, ground yourself, connected to areas within yourself that do need healing

happening so we can heal as individuals, universe can heal as a whole

change

make the choice to change, don’t continue doing the same things you were doing before

learn the lessons, if you don’t learn them they keep showing up

earth speeding up faster and faster, if we don’t choose to evolve, things like this will happen naturally, it’s just not in alignment

choose to change

change is never comfortable, definitely takes action, what better time to change,

universe is supporting you by shattering everything that you’re used to

things will change

looking at all the change that’s happening

bringing your guns out

trusting this is okay

choose to be a better person

taking the reclusive time within yourself

not constantly looking out to feel fulfilled

change for the better

use this as an opportune time for self care

baths, journaling, meditating, walk in nature, the sun, hug a tree, feed your soul

through self care, you’ll evolve

manifest, operating on higher frequency

make shift in positive direction

through self care, living in capitalistic society, go go go, staple for a level of success, achievement that is false

earth/plants not doing that

through self care, it becomes easier to see what it is that you need to raise yourself to a higher frequency, through self care, a really big one is taking the time to set positive intentions for yourself

times get hard you do have to push harder

set positive affirmations, life will go my way, my dreams will come true, I will make it through this

I will be a good person in my community

through self care, we’ll better know how to take care of others when this does pass

this too will pass

it’s not permanent, drop the victimization

stop feeling really week, choose to feel strong

universe would never give you anything that you cannot handle

just got back from Haiti

met a really amazing guy, had this positive energy, stating that in Haiti, not one person with the corona virus, living with virus, suffering, here there’s life

so optimistic, so positive

I felt optimistic by taking on his perspective, there can be life found in the midst of all of this mess

life is within you

don’t feed into all the bs don’t just sit there and watch all the funny memes of corona virus all day long, you’re not using the time to grow

what will you stand for when things go back

things will be changed they will be transformed

My Non Verbatim Show Notes

Current events strategy, don’t have a tv, don’t know if that makes me a luddite

don’t like to watch news, 24 hour news cycle on tv

I like bbc service, somewhere between bbc and economist seems to be much more objective than nbc, fox

haven’t compared statistics to prior outbreaks, spanish influenza, killed a lot more people than recent outbreaks

haven’t really studied it, the new social media interfacing with that, changing the narrative or not

happened before historically, originally had state laws for mandatory vaccinations, resistances to that, if we’re talking about martial law, court cases developed since then, in the wake of that

not something I’ve studied in any detail, precedent of state being able to dictate that you must receive this or that

united states in a lot of ways is the bread basket for the world, immediate needs we’re fortunate here, more or less self sufficient with oil

we have enough food, less fortunate countries dependent on outside aid, most drastic effect on economy

grew up in wyoming, canned goods, bottled water, everything came in was fresh

I guess I have not being participated in disaster preparedness

I started going to a church, come across the minister, civic groups, 99% african american church, minister, very thoughtful definitely get good vibes from him, last sermon on book of revelations of the bible, psychedelic adventure going through hell, fragmented snakes and demons, believes we’re approaching the end times

put on the clock of god, shed the trappings of evil, you could interpret that as to how our society is so removed from any of the basic hardships that most people throughout history have suffered

huge homeless problems, but what would happen if there really were systemic disruptions of service, how would be react, bring people together, honor and helping each other

I think just about every age they’ve always thought they were going through the end times

if the gates of hell our unleashed, revelation, sun melts thing, global warming, could be something to that

what does it mean to get yourself right with god, seeing life in more spiritual terms, brush with organized church in the past hasn’t been the best, a lot of truth in the original messages, reframe in a way that doesn’t involve rape

the trauma is all around us, some of us put up walls for one reason or another, so many people in the u.s. and the world in that predicament

it’s all around us, it is now, what do we do about it

all these people that are there are us, we’re sharing in their journey, it’s still there, what responsibility does that have, do we stock pile, prepare

maybe I’m just waiting for the answer, seems like there’s something, it’s right here, homeless problem right here

it’s been bringing people in the community together, everybody feels it

haven’t been able to fashion a long range thing, does put something in the air, spawned different community groups, whether we want to face it or not it’s there, there is suffering

affects you even if you live in a gated community

facinated by christian idea of service, the simple, the old mother teresa, franciscan way of serving people, see god in everything, go to the leper colonies, serve the poorest of the poor see that those people are god

very shamanic, recognizing, we’re all part of the same body, when you take care of the people who are the most needy,

there is a lot of overlap in the fundamental christian messages and the shamanic messages that are very powerful

humans are always looking for that new thing, speaking more to myself, grew up in catholic background, new appreciation by shamanic means, entheogens,

we think we’re discovering something new, but just going back to where we’re starting from

love, peace, service, basic messages, a lot of mainline christian groups in united states, a lot of beauty in that

I have this knee jerk reaction, the church doesn’t let women participated in the priesthood, or priest telling me what to do

messages in scriptures a lot of practices beautiful

what kind of messages really resonates with me

what I think is appealing to some of the shamanic messages, why I think they’re getting more popularity in this area

when you do a medicine ceremony, shaman isn’t telling you what to do, they’re just singing a song, the icaros

if you were a leader of a church or something, not so much be pedantic, or even thinking you have a flock, that you need to pastor to, within yourself you create this music, not so much the content, but the love and the energy, such a beautiful metaphor for future leaders

not worry about telling people things, but rather just serving people, creating the music to foster people’s positive energy

seeing the god in the other person, the god within you

shouldn’t single out priests, even somebody like us on a podcast talking about stuff

struggling with in my own life, what is my truth, what is my messages, what is my song, why am I doing this podcast

started off, interested in interviewing other people, socratic method, listening to them talk, asking them questions, within interjecting my own anything, what exactly is our role as a person

two daughters, what do I tell them about how to act, do I tell them no you shouldn’t do this, how do you convey the message in your own family

just create your own song that makes people want to join in on your song, not projecting energy outward, oh I have this truth and you need to see it to, more intangible, its an energetic thing almost

I still like to go to churches to hang out and feel the energy

if you’re in a concert, when you have a group of people sharing, all able to participate, not just one person lecturing, everybody passing around the rock, participate in the dialog, share something important to them

with social media, increased connectedness learn to capitalize on that and bring it together allow people to share their own voice, without the old model the priest was leading the flock, politician leading the flock, everybody

for me its an energetic thing, not so much based on content, there is a role that you do have to say something, not just it, when I was doing zen practice, go in for an interview with the zen priest they ask you coans or different things, always one response is silence, I always kept getting prompted to say, what is your voice, can sit there a bump on a log, its your life, participate in a meaningful way, you’re not gonna reinvent the wheel

part of my practice is to become more grounded, what better way to ground than in the ground, your shit is interconnected to everything, reconnecting you to the universe, you’re not separating from it, your shit is a fertilizers that grows the food you eat in a wonderful cycle

a lot of my practices are to intentionally reconnect myself

priests, men of god, good intentions, I just had the feeling the church as a whole was resisting reconciliation with victims, law suits, that’s the way our society deals with these transgressions

it doesn’t solve the priest trauma, that they obviously experienced to propagate more trauma on the victims if the church would admit it’s fault

that really should be the mission of the church, priests are part of the divine, victims are part of the divine, perpetrators, victims alike, not to shield themselves

just say my heart goes out to everybody in that trauma cycle

In this episode I syndicate by permission a segment on Coronavirus preparedness from Laura Shin’s recent episode of the Unconfirmed Podcast: https://unchainedpodcast.com/coronavirus-how-it-will-impact-bitcoin-and-the-halving/

My Non Verbatim Show Notes:

Climate change greatest slow moving danger

threat is so large, use platform to help out and bend the trajectory of the virus in the us, given our bad start in the fight against it

credentials, masters in science journalism

hopefully these tips will be helpful

us focused

first thing, no need to panic, worst thing you can do in a situation like this

take care of your self first

do one relaxing thing a day, exercise, meditation, a nap or bath, whatever will help keep in level headed state

calmly rationally seek out knowledge from reliable sources

armed with knowledge, make smart decisions, help others

take care of own body and health, boost immune system, reduce burden on health care system, clearer head to make better decisions, keeps you available to help others

docs nurses, and health care practitioners going to have hands full, if we keep our bodies in good shape, we can assist others

us is going to have to fight this battle pretty much blindly from a data stand point

so far behind on testing, I believe we no longer have time to catch up

window closed on strategy of containment

chems used in test, in short supply lack of test kits, lack of capacity, don’t think aggressive testing is viable anymore

don’t think we have the time to all the tests and contain this

already brewing in a big way

lag between infection and illness

not all hope is lost

another data point, most important metric, how burdened health care systems become

“true case fatality rate”, no true cfr, varies from city to city state to state country to country, determined by whether health care system gets overwhelmed

flatten the curve

we are the ones who determine the CFR, every choice we make pushes number up or down

in the us, our dotted lines is lower than in other places, not everyone is insured, many more people getting sick but not getting tested, spreading it to others

even insured may have incentives not to get tested

free testing, not sure how much will help us now

docs, nurses, lack enough protective gear

masks not replenished since 2009

1% of estimated 3.5 billion masks the nation would need

5 million 95 masks in stockpile expired

larger percentage of health care workers will fall ill and need to be quarantined

don’t horde face masks, leave them for health care workers, shortage of supply

if you become sick you should wear a mask, but until then you have other means to protect yourself, health care workers do not

health care system capacity line, health care system in Lombardi, Italian outbreak, rated 9.9 out of 10, various us states, no where comes close to 9.9

our health system capacity is much much lower than Lombardi’s, much less margin for error

in any/every way you can start social distancing, because we have basically run out of time, start now, this power lies in your hands, anytime you have a choice about whether or not to go out, stay home

sad fact, here in us, our leaders have failed us miserably

we citizens are smarter and more capable than they are, and we by our actions can take control and fight back this virus

stay in, don’t spread to others, can spread asymptomatically

cost of staying home will be different for some than others, for this reason, govt should compensate those who take financial hit for financial good…that cost would be dwarfed by financial cost of letting the virus ravage as many lives as it would without your intervention

corona virus is here, no matter what we will pay a price, paid in human lives or financial aid

take care of yourself

stay informed

do you best to help out people on front lines

do our best now to bend the curve, be more like korea or taiwan

we have power in our hands, make the right choice

anytime you have the ability, stay in

beat this back, we can all go celebrate afterwards

as we are facing something completely unprecedented, corona virus, las vegas pretty much all shut down, casinos closed, hotels empty , strip is quiet, many people out of work, staying home, grocery store shelves are empty, some people panicking, upset, other peoples treating it summer break I get to rest, haven’t had a break from work for 5 years

for me, household, partner and I have enough to get us through some time, staying out of public spaces the best as we can, safety practices, staying connected to family, to loved ones, really enhancing my mindfulness practices, more yoga, more water, more baths, indulging in little things, those treats that might not seem all that important, really taking care of myself, stress lowers immune systems, be gentle with myself and others, think about that, everyone is going through this

we’re all experiencing these new stress levels, horizon, that’s not clear, extend a smile, be kind generous, take care of number one

I do really appreciate that being mindful of the media that we consume is very important right now, easy to get swept away, find trusted sources to check in with a couple times a day so you’re informed, don’t let the fear get in the way of your ability to respond with thought and intelligence

stay occupied, attending to our basic pleasure needs, something I am welcoming into my life as well, its a nice time to kind of say, I don’t need to be afraid, I don’t need to shy away from sex work and being an online presence that can show a healthy sexy intelligent spiritual way of holding my own in a sexual manner, being able to support your cam workers and entertain yourself and help them keep food on the table, past couple days been home thinking about ways to make money and keep the public engaged, keep myself engaged, account on chaturbate, played on that a bit last night, new platform for me, so many things that go on with it, mad props to everyone who’s able to do it and have fun with it, will leave that link with you, we’re all stuck in side, it’s nice to have some fun

drop in tune out check in

as you sit there or you’re laying or you’re in a state where you can come to pause, just enjoy that pause, feeling your breath, feeling your body, coming into awareness, just yourself, recognizing that you individual are part of this global universal collective, you person listening are a link in this beautiful web, multicolored, multitextured multipatterned fabric that makes up our entire being, attune to yourself, give yourself that love compassion, that permission to be, to be still, to be tender, to be nervous, happy excited, anxious, loving and loved, however you are, you are allowed to just be present with that, know that whatever is happening within your being, some one else is experiencing that as well, move outside of yourself and offer that love to someone, someone who’s easy to give love to, parent, child, friend, lover, teacher, stranger, offer them love however they are,

gentle quite acknowledgment, I see you, moving on to another, someone who when you think about them, feelings not so easy to touch on, acknowledge them as a human, encountering whatever life experiences they will encounter today, they are part of this beautiful tapistry, they are part of our story, offer them love, acknowledge their existence as part of this whole as we pass others, think about others through our day, acknowledge them as human just as we are, offer them love, peace and compassion, you seeing them will lead us through these dark times

it will help bolster you against anything that comes your way, every individual has a story, their own psychodrama, no need to take it personally, just acknowledge them as human, a link in this chain, take care of yourself let them take care of themselves, just be, be present, give yourself permission to slow down and recognize yourself as this beautiful beam of light, may not feel it but you are it, breath, breath connects us to our source, connecting to source allows us to align, allows to make decisions with more kindness, this is what we need right now, we call you to be your highest self so you can respond intelligently to anything that comes your way, in closing I uplift you I see you, may you feel held and not alone, inhale, exhale to release all doubt and all worry, inhale compassion and peace, namaste
