OMG! So true it’s not funny!!!!

I’ve been on some magical adventures and guides have appeared when I needed them. Actually, every day is a magical adventure and guides seem to appear in my life right when I need them most.

Mind you, I need to check whether Mr Campbell intended to use the word ‘than’ or ‘then’? If ‘than’, we have all misinterpretted his intention … πŸ˜‰

Kim Falconer introduced me to MM and before that I learned heaps from Kim.

Wondering tho if Mubarak realizes that several Millions upon Millions of guides are telling him his true adventure is well, not quite his adventure anymore.

Okay, back to magical guides, Mystic.

“Yes, yes, I think I seen one, but wasn’t sure. What he spoze to look like”, she says wringing her hands in her apron and turning her toes in…

“Aw, shucks, I seen me one but didn’t even no it”…

Now I think of it, one of the most important guides introduced me to both Joseph Campbell & Mystic Medusa. And without that guide I’d never have been able to read this quote and go ‘yep, I agree’ πŸ˜€

We’ll go toe to toe…One of the things I loved about my Leo mother and quite frankly respected (who died first day of spring last year), is that at 72, she would still rise up and challenge me when I was a shit. Of course, why would she not? She also had some mega Virgo stuff… Read more »

And by “handle it”, is that Virgo’s usually take care of so much. Doesn’t mean one should be trampled on, of course.

Herby – Leos yell, it’s just them, the roar of the lion. The trick is to yell/roar back, and then they look gobsmacked and retire to lick their wounded pride.

Can you please tell the Leos in my life that I am too sweet to yell at? They can’t seem to stop themselves from yelling at me any chance they get. Maybe it’s just that they know it’s easier to yell at me than each other or the Saggo in the room.

I wouldn’t yell at you Sweetpea πŸ™‚

PS: I don’t think I’m that sweet … have eaten too many grapefruit πŸ˜‰

Libraquarius – I do sometimes yell back at the Leos. It’s quite funny to watch them turn around and sulk like the big pussy cats they are. πŸ˜€

I grew up with 3 Leos (in a family of 5) and work with 3 Leos too … Don’t know when Leos challenge me more. Probably in family because there are no rules. At least at work they have to behave.

I always remember the first time I lost the plot with my husband and really did my rag. I saw red and yelled my head off, first time ever I’d lost the plot completely. He looked absolutely flabbergasted, just stood gaping then grabbed our dog and shot out of the room. The dog was looking a bit nervous too. Fabulous feeling.

Interesting to Sweetpea and Libraquarius! However, it doesn’t seem to me his world has failed at all, like whatevs put it, it’s how it’s manifested that makes the difference. And if ego was part of it, wouldn’t Thoth have become ruler? After all, he acquired vast knowledge than any man on earth at the time from communicating with the other side to what he claims to be God, or one of the gods. If the divine had known he was a ego-trip, why would such teach such? Joseph Campbell: β€œIf what you are following is your own true adventure, than… Read more »

My learning is that he was the ruler of Atlantis and Atlantis failed. That’s why we have started over since that time. He brought many gifts to Earth that he already possessed. ~it doesn’t seem to me his world has failed at all, like whatevs put it, it’s how it’s manifested that makes the difference.~ I don’t see how this has manifested quite so beautifully at all. And yet I see beauty in the world but mixed with pain and suffering, ignorance, greed. My interpretation of whateves statement is not the same as yours. And yet it all gets down… Read more »

Oh? Who is your teacher? Where did you learn that Thoth was ruler of Atlantis? My learning was that he was only a student of Atlantis and that Atlantis sunk due to a deluge. My interpretation of whatevs’ statement is that we wouldn’t be here if it weren’t for Thoth who spread knowledge of astrology and other subjects. The world as we know it now, I had meant. I see! So deities have each their own intent which is self-serving? I didn’t think of it that way. Yeah, I agree, government thinks it needs social control to thrive when it… Read more »

I like you, Libraquarius! You emanate interest and humor! Mystic, Thoth and Hermes the Thrice Great are linked with Ophiuchus too, think Mercury and the Moon! In between the esoteric Scorpio and the educating Sagittarius. Tarot is another element Thoth brought, and sacred geometry as well! He traveled the world and brought Atlantis and the astral plane with him, building pyramids wherever he went. Some sort of extraterrestrial/divine touch or an overzealous missionary with an incredible dedication? A woman spoke to me today of her dream: she was at an Egyptian temple where flying saucers departed. She saw snakes, Anubis,… Read more »

Everything Atlantis is coming ’round again. Like karma (cause and effect – not a punishment…just what you sow, you reap) you get a chance to do it differently…or not. I don’t take terribly fondly to Thoth. He was a blind genius. Solely mental worlds always fail if there is no heart and no respect for nature, which is what the mental world is built on. The pyramids he built were from energies much more ancient than he. He simply followed a blue print of the electromagnetics that were a part of the earth’s grid work. But meanwhile yes, he instigated… Read more »

Thank you, Ophiuchus (bowing deeply and then dipping a graceful curtsy to keep my male/female side in balance, lol), I have a very warped sense of humour but I reckon you gotta laugh or you’d go right off your trolley. As for Thoth, I love everything about him, real or imagined, and I just love dreams with images. The dreaming seems to be coming through very strongly for me again. In relation to reborn, I had a really vivid past-life experience in a concentration camp where I was a gypsy and murdered, out of the blue, never believed in anything… Read more »

I control my own destiny. But sometimes I need higher knowledge or help. There is always a guide around to help if we acknowledge our need. I am grateful higher wisdom is there for the asking. It’s curious how we can’t see everything but these other beings are around who see more than we do. Or do we make them up and it’s a way of tricking ourselves into accessing a different part of ourselves? I like the nice, higher helpful beings image. I’ll stick with that.

Bollocks! Magical guides my left buttcheek. I’ve sacked my spiritual guide and am not planning on hiring a new one. It’s all within us … I read a Buddhist teaching once that said “all is mind” … so mind your thoughts. I wish they would teach something useful at school like how to think – not WHAT to think. Management of the unconscious is probably the least understood of any aspect of the human psyche, which is ridiculous considering how it dominates behaviour and rational thinking is just the piddly little bit we get to see on the surface.

Libraquarius

Well, I’ve just invoked my magical powers, flown over and inspected your left buttcheek and it’s seriously discombombulated at your sacking your spiritual guide. It’s devastated and has started sagging in sadness. The right buttcheek is still quite perky though. Posted by the friendly, local Buttcheek Guide .

Lol, I still feel uncomfortable asking my guides for help. I feel like ‘why the fuq you wanna get in my energy field?’. Mistrustful, I guess but if I do talk to them I always preface with a long request that only those interested in my highest good be present. Said a trad prayer the other day and realized how far from that I am now. I always assume my life is my responsibility and my job to fix, energetically or otherwise. And it is not up to some shapeshifting image of a voodoo priestess etc or even Jesus hisself… Read more »

No reason to feel uncomfortable asking your guides for help .. it’s their job – they’re already part of your energy field accompanying your higher self on this particular leg of the human journery anyway. But do consider that they don’t view things from a human perspective. They operate for your greater good and the greater good of all. Which means they can come across quite cryptic and/or freakin weird or not even good at all, especially if your human wants aren’t aligned with the UU (Universal Unconscious). Also keep in mind that your own human ” ego mind” can… Read more »

It’s so true that ego plays a role in how we interpret messages from our guides but sometimes I also think it’s too easy to over-think the messages. There have been many times where i’ve gone looking for in-depth cryptic clues or trying to analyse messages but i’ve had to take a step back and go with my instincts- sometimes the messages are as literal as they come across/ come through. I’m trying not to try too hard because when that happens I can’t hear them. Most spirit guides and ascendant masters are higher energies. I no longer worry about… Read more »

Love Vipassana meditation – it’s a great way to give up smoking and they provide crappy Vegan food too. If you have 10 days you can take off, I totally recommend it, it’s partly how I gave up smoking. I never wanted a puff while I was there. I really like that you can focus on pain and not on the thoughts too. I am too mentally stimulated so making meditation less visual and more a body experience is amazing. You can smell the toxins leaching out of your skin. No guides, no yakking, just hardcore body work. Then I… Read more »

I know what you mean, but I tend to see guides as inside me already. I think it is a very christian concept to see god/divinity as external as in you are not of creation you need to seek it and then get all fucked up when you feel like you can’t ‘connect’. I just did a massive day of yoga with insanely cool teacher who was very centric on ‘your inner teacher’ today- and it made me remember the relationship to the physical for wisdom. I have never found if I ask out loud for anything it happens. Magic… Read more »

Actually, and much to my surprise, my aunt turned up as a guide and companion for me in spirit in 2006. I loved her dearly and we became estranged after my mother’s death, but she turned up in a reading with a guy who I didn’t know was a medium and he ID’ed her perfectly, including her warped sense of humour and raucous laugh. She also ID’ed a blue pendant she’d given me just after I arrived in Australia over 32 years previously. I was surprised because I’ve never been much into guides for myself BUT I have to admit… Read more »

Yes, it’s not like within a greater mind that there are not others of individuality with their own ideas and view points that can offer guidance or not.

I mean, hello? What are we doing here talking to each other?

My experience is that other aspects of ourselves come to offer guidance. They rise up from the psyche through dreams, nature totems, as angels from our higher mind and so forth. Other dimensional/parallel/alternate selves. Even the Masters assistance rises up from within but we might perceive their guidance as outside of ourselves (just like everything I mentioned above). Just depends on the level of perception we’re receiving…”getting it”. Some people, on the larger stage, embody ‘good and evil’ and those dramas are played out in 3-d as what is in the subconscious is lived out and ultimately offset and healed… Read more »

I go the within you without you thing prowlers think synchronicity is a form of external guidance. There is some kind of holographic thing that happens I’m sure of it. Some pulse or frequency emitted that can summon a vision of something or you see it because you’re open to it or tuned in. I just had the weirdest experience in my garden with the nature and I don’t go the whole spirit guide thing in the late 90s sense of the word but some freaky shit happens sometimes.

Ms.
Ms.

for sure. I am not knocking it, if anything its an art to communicate with yourself affectively enough as to let the correct guiding happen and awareness to know what is your job in life and what bits are for the higher powers. I used to have so many visions I felt like I was hallucinating but my ancestors are amazing, for me that is not a concept like the idea of the higher spiritual plane however as I can feel them in my blood. This form of guidance, which I was referencing above, is found in more tribal understanding… Read more »

I’ve discovered my garden likes vines – this pleases me because vines generally bear fruit or flowers – there is no grass but there are 4 walls. Life is sweet. I have an abundance of bright red tomatoes and I’m having random espalier dreamscapes in my waking hours.

Each time I look at the post, I get the Bangles stuck in my head.

I will fully appreciate it’s deepness when I have had more sleep and not spent the entire day thus far eating chocolate.
Only chocolate.
Unless my spirit guides I are telling me I should create a reality show that is a hybridisation of the X factor and the Biggest Loser.
Which I could then call the Big X Loser.
Or something

If we are following our hearts and being authentic, it is not that magical guides suddenly appear; it is just that when we are not living our truth and are going along the path of least resistance, placating the mob of public opinion, that we distance ourselves from the magic that Life is and the powers that are always at our disposal when we are on line with our own Program, no matter how it diverges from the norm…

as I realise I have a few loud noises to contend with on the inner voice
(in the form of attention seeking men…) I am making proper saturn girl grid lines with some tesla electric fencing (please piss on this fence, I dare you)
so messages between me and scared thoughts of own life can flow. Dreams are amazing and potent, yoga to help me replant and some meditation to allow magic to actually manifest. Egypt is around in a big way again mystic. Amazing timing as usual. xx
