Your Tarot Birth Cards for 8/8/2020

This Week

It’s a #2 day today, so here are a pair of 2-themed videos:

The Mystereum Tarot Moment, 2 of Pentacles

1 min 1 sec AND The Family of the Twos Clocking in at 2 min 23 sec.

There’s a whole world in 61 seconds, or 1 min 1 sec = 1 + 1 = 2. ad-libbed here in a single take. That’s not bragging. I warmed with a great bike ride up the hill to the video shoot several miles away. Cleared out my breath, smiled and looked about a bit. Then, hopped in the cockpit in front of my Producer’s ‘putter, and simply put in a post a pole position lap time. That’s it. Not bragging. It’s simply a stat. Enjoy. How do YOU roll when it matters?

What can you do for your own pole position self in just over a minute? Please comment if you feel to, though more so, I suggest to put your phone on record, and give it a try. You may be surprised what happens when you’re on the spot, on the stage, running up and down through your gears and through the chicanes and turns of YOU expressing yourself. Can you put yourself on your own stage and hit the gas?

Not a challenge or a competition or ego-tooting my horn in any more than to start the band, then the Band/Team comes in, huh? No need to do your 1 min 1 second in one take — or heck, beat me… do in in 1 min flat. Simply a question, a suggested exercise. What can you do in 60 seconds to further and actionably build foundations under your dreams? What does YOUR 60-second gig look like? Try it. Take your notes on yourself FROM your recording. Then, Take 2 if you see areas for improvement, or other directions you feel more resonant to take.

Study YOURSELF. Literally, study yourself. Record yourself for 60 seconds… or there-around. Please don’t take the time as Gospel. Make your Gospel. Hear the sacredness of YOUR voice. Revise as required until you get tingles… from YOUR own voice.

Look Out

Look out the window. Go outside and look IN the window… of yourself. What does your home look like from outside the window? Prepare with the notes you take from your 56 seconds. Take a deep breath and… GO! Just record yourself on your phone for 56 seconds and then transcribe it… or delete it. The delete option is the ultimate edit button. 🙂 You may find it just keeps expanding when you start to transcribe it.

Try the 1-minute-ish exercise. Why 1 minute? Good question. The number is arbitrary. That’s just around what this video took with no splicers or edits in a single take. On this one, it was a single take on the 1st take. Not on all my vids. And, I don’t find that to be a meaningful stat. It’s simply a stat. I’d much rather drive the car the way it was made to be driven so to speak. Practice doesn’t make perfect. Practice makes excellence.

Practice won’t even keep you from slamming into the wall when you over-downshift and lose the back end for just a split-second-long-enough to drive you to step deep into the tach while you’ve already slid out the rear end to overtake you And SLAM CRASH Right into the wall. Use your roll cage, people. Odds are, you don’t have to ask for as much permission as you do. That what roll cages are for, right? What practice will do, though, what BITCh will do — Butt In The Chair — is…. well, try it. Over time, you’ll see. That’s a silver platter there for you. Now, can you fill it with your faves?

What’s YOUR short time? What’s YOUR lap time for a single pass? Your call. Will you give it a try? Comment please if your care to share.

Serendipity Itinerary forAugust 8th

Onto the wild beyond around the rocks in the wonderful Flow of rapids in the excellent blogs below. I’ve started treating the music section below differently. Instead of taking it down right from Shuffle on Sonos, as that took TOO long even if I only transcribed one day’s worth, I’m going to cherry pick for you to cherry pick from. Some weeks one, some weeks more. Simply depends — sounds like an add for diapers lol.

OOPS!!!! DAYUM!!!! DAFUQ JUST HAPPENED?!! A SPEEDBump, A WALL???!!! NOPE. What was that Bumpidity Bump HAPPY-PLACE-STOP I just felt!!!! WooHOO, that was a lightning strike of JOY!!!!!!!!!!

Not really. Though, it was certainly a Posterity Lineage Legacy moment of JOY this week as I opened the box that I heard about on Tuesday from my publisher that I received late Friday and opened… A Big Ole Lightning Strike Lit Up My Posterity-Legacy-Lineage this week, so, I’ll put myself on your Serendipity Itinerary this week. 🙂 Please click to explore one of my proudest moments.

And, I’m honored Ian is using my Tarot in the Land of Mystereum deck and 192-page companion book as a creative writing prompter.

House of Ari. Sharing a personal exploration of gender in Sweden. Up front and honest and insightful as the experience and process of this self-induced rite of passage unfolds. I respect when people swim in their own crucible to discern and come to a more resonant relationship with themselves. It can be swimming in magma at times, though isn’t that how crystals and geodes are made? Clarity and creativity and actionable feel often come out of strong Soul Gardening such as Ari’s. I look forward to where this exploration leads.

Fernando Kaskais ~ WebInvestigator.KK.org is one web investigative resource for searching thousands of online sources, and public databases. Interesting variety explored with depth and verve.

Dawn Lhamo ~ Whole Person Wellness Coaching. Coaching, Senryu, Thought. Variety is the spice of life, and put together like a great cook, spices are even better. Try a taste of how Dawn puts things together on her site.

Sandra ~ Into the Light Adventures. By Sandra Js Photography – Make the rest of your life the best of your life.

cocinaitaly ~ Elganspo, comida italiana. Hungry? Hungry for edible beauty, aesthetic eats? Exquisite is a word. Edibly exquisite is two words. Grab a friend, and go experience this. What will your words be afterwards?

Hailletrimbolie ~ Empowered Educator. It feels like she has listened to Moira and her internal sense of time and timing to start her blog. Good stuff there just in the listening to one’s own rhythms and messages. Enjoy Haille’s garden as it grows, becomes perennial, and naturalizes. I for one am looking forward to see where she takes her adventure.

Scott Spillman ~ The Point Magazine. New article, Charismatic Models.(My words follow, these are not Scott’s or the Magazine’s) I loathe politics as the great irony of our time, maybe any time when people who are not personally sovereign can be ruled simply by the sniff of a suggestion. More often than not I find politics in any age to provide a comprehensive, compendium anthology of the best you-can-talk-a-good-game-but-cannot-box-wimpy-see-through-always-superficial-with-zero-substance-hipocrisy people. This, is not that..

Joy Vernon ~ Completely Joyous. Tarot & Reiki. Bookmarked for this week as there’s an ICANN issue pending. I’ve been there. I hate it when that periodic email required to confirm your URL ownership with ICANN for your website gets buried and lost. I’ll most likely have an operable link here next week if not before.

Benebell Wen ~ author + reader. Such a wonderful discipline of the ritual in Benebelle’s actioanable and exploratory process of deck creation of her 3rd edition of SKT. Check out Benebelle’s site. She is an engaged and informed artist fully immersed Actively in The Work and also in the not-knowing, and building value when she emerges her creations.

Robert Ruiz ~ Robert Ruiz Art. Robert Ruiz is an artist from Brownsville, TX, who is also a Master of Fine Art Candidate at the University of Texas at Rio Grande Valley with Bachelors of Fine Art, concentration in Drawing and New Media, from the University of Texas at San Antonio.

Banter Republic ~ Gottfried. It’s just banter. Banter, comedy, humor, lifestyle, Living. He might even ask you if a period can be italicized. Be entertained and engaged. No hidden Oz behind the curtain here.

Theresa, Soul Gatherings ~ Spiritual Moments in the Human Experience. Wonderful quotes and perspective here. A great daily.

Gabriela M. ~ Short Prose Fiction. Author of the Year (2019) at Spillword Press NYC. You can swim in these words. Take a dip.

Keith’s SecondVoice ~ African Poetry. I found Keith’s work last week. He liked a comment I made on another’s blog, don’t remember which as I clicked right through to his site. Wonderfully powerful, muscular language full of grit and flow and resonance and well-played metaphor that is apt and expressive and clear.

Carsten Wieland ~ Brushpark Watercolors ~ Aquarelle und Zeichnungen von Carsten Wieland. Power in color and fluid forms here. Please visit this wonderfully powerful feast for the eyes and process expressed with watercolors.

RoadtirementTraveling and retired. This couple and their experiences and travels and family… just make me smile. Real and robust for being themselves. Plus, they’re gardeners. What ever could go wrong? Great sense of humor and wonderful outlook on life. Woo Hoo shout-out to the Roadtirement Etsy shop! Check it out.

Tutu’s edible logic ~ Food makes sense. Exquisite and intelligent and nourishing and informative.

Wander the Lines ~ Step into my reading life. Looking for a new book to read? Stop in here for a treat and a great perspective.

Delusional Bubble ~ Life is a bubble, Make it as delusional as possible. Travel the world. I feel Rick Steves is cool, and he’s also not the only game in town.

Joanne Sprott ~ Cosmic Whispers. Let’s Walk the Spiral Path Together. Poetry, depthful thought, and generally all things Joanne = things that matter and have substance and are important and/or are simply interesting.

Learn Tarot: Naima Healer ~ Self-Healing through the Present Moment. Wonderful work with a just as wonderful Hoo Doo deck. Naima has just started out blogging, and I firmly feel she started out on just the right foot. Sensitive, sensible with wit and wisdom not disconnected from lineage. She may have just started blogging, though she’s no novice Reader.

Bonnie Cehovet ~ Flash Fiction. Author. Tarot. Consummate Reviewer. Want a solid story? Bonnie’ll get your there. Bonnie has a way about only working with things she resonates with. She doesn’t do negative reviews, understands that that is a waste of her blessings and value. I beyond resonate with and respect that. What’s the point of non-things? CHeck out good things here.

Croque-Melpomene ~ Author of Within Paravent Walls. Pentalingual Idealist. Writer of psycho-corporeal Poetry. Creator of Croque-Melpomene & Les Femmes de la Décadence. Chthonic Numinosity, depth with no fear of addressing behemoth-level emotional topics through her poetry and evolved wonderment and continual curiosity. She runs deep, and takes the proper gear to do so… herself. I see a chthonic numinosity in her poetry that is akin to night and day stained glass. Well worth the visit. Powerful. Intense. Heartfelt. I advise to bring tissues for all the right reasons.

Saania2086 ~ Philosophy is all about being curious, asking basic questions. And it can be fun! If P, then Q. If you want good sense, then go here to see what dynamic mind dish is being served up today.

Charlescearl’s Weblog ~ Musings on fascinating things. Important and fascinating things well said. Charles not only thinks things through, he lives them through. You can feel it in his writing. Don’t go for the writing. Go for experience you will remember. Indelible is a word, and a good one with Charles’ weblog.

Jane Lurie Photography ~ powerful, evocative freeze-frames of architectural images that are definitely not secretly active. These images live out loud! They are refined. And they are as natural as they are refined, like an exquisitely cut emerald or sapphire or ruby kind of refined. There’s nothing hidden in the rough here. These beauties have some pipes in their visual voice.

Timothy Price ~ Off Center & Not Even. Is variety the spice of life? Go here and see! The photography is magnificent.

Mary K. Greer’s Tarot Blog ~ Tarot helps you meet whatever comes in the best possible way. Mary matters. Professionally. As a person. As an author. Mary matters. Sweet and direct and courageous and inventive and FUN. Oh, she was a wicked cool sense of humor. Many deep wells feed Mary’s work. Warning: Immersion here may lead to ablution.

Enchanted Seashells by Princess Rosebud ~ Beguiling pearls of wit, wisdom, and whimsy-with attitude. I’m not going to add more words to that. If that doesn’t grab you… A Princess is simply a Queen not yet sitting..

Dr. Eric Perry ~ Psychology to Motivate | Inspire | Uplift. Wonderfully full and relevant and engaged Psychology articles with clarity of voice. I full-on dig when things are as robust as they are clear, especially when directly dealing with intensities. This site, is certainly that.

The Dihedral ~ More than just climbing. A lot more. And, climbing is a lot in itself. Read a new route today at The Dihedral. Dammit! No, not wormsign. Worse. The covert Covid-19 struck again. Visit The Dihedral for a seriously wicked and wonderfully solid attitude of Not Wasting Trouble.

Cristian Mihai ~ Professional Blogger. Sense & Sensibility meets the info age? He’s not afraid to say it, whatever he says. No walking on eggshells here, well, unless he starts making compost for the garden. Excellent tips for bloggers and thinkers and feelers.

Susi Bocks ~ I Write Her. My words for Susi’s writing go something like this. You talk a good game, Dood, but can you (Susi) Bocks? Concise might even be too long a word. The consistency of depth here is… well, I have a deep respect for how much she does with so little and its never sparse. Muscular and powerful language. I’d call her the Bruce Lee of words.

The Alchemist’s Studio ~ Raku, vessels, Alchemy in action. Pottery with heart and soul PLUS some PUNitive humor to boot. Don’t miss the Hens! Another place of great perspective.

Enjoy the DNA of our Solar System as it moves along its 230-million year orbit around our Milky Way galaxy. Credit to A.T. Mann for sending me this years back when he was a guest on my Inner State Highways internet TV show. Hmmm, I miss doing that. Well, I might want to do something about that…

This is such a cool creation about the larger creation we live our own orbits within.

Helix and DNA strands anyone? There’s such a wonderful Who let the dogs out? Us, our world and solar system itself in orbit.

Solar System & DNA

& This Week’s SI Music & Video Is simply ONE… It came on Shuffle several times this week… and… COOL-E-O! Love it every time! Jes… Motorcycle… Bring it on …. As The Rush Comes. If ever there was an anthem about creativity… THIS is it… or of course, le petite morte.

Live

and, in the studio

May you fill your spaces with the good stuff Your way

What Does Your Music Sound Like?

Fluorite for clarity

Thank you for your support.

Your Life, Your Way

Have a Wonderful Weekend & a Great Week!!

This Week

It’s a #6 Day, so here’s a 6-themed video

The Mystereum Tarot Moment, 6 of Pentacles

0 min 56 sec

There’s a whole world in 56 seconds. I ad-libbed here for 56 seconds in a single take. That’s not bragging. I warmed with a great bike ride up the hill to the video shoot several mile away. Cleared out my breath, smiled and looked about a bit. Then, hopped in the cockpit to post a pole position time. That’s it. Not bragging. It’s simply a stat.

What can you do for your own pole position self in 56 seconds? Please don’t answer. Put your phone on record and give it a try. You may be surprised what happens when you’re on the spot, on the stage. Can you put yourself on your own stage?

More often than not I find politics in any age to provide a comprehensive, compendium anthology of the best you-can-talk-a-good-game-but-cannot-box-wimpy-see-through-always-superficial-with-zero-substance-hipocrisy people. This, is not that..

Joy Vernon ~ Completely Joyous. Tarot & Reiki. Bookmarked for this week as there’s an ICANN issue pending. I’ve been there. I hate it when that periodic email required to confirm your URL ownership with ICANN for your website gets buried and lost. I’ll most likely have an operable link here next week if not before.

Benebell Wen ~ author + reader. Such a wonderful discipline of the ritual in Benebelle’s actioanable and exploratory process of deck creation of her 3rd edition of SKT. Check out Benebelle’s site. She is an engaged and informed artist fully immersed Actively in The Work and also in the not-knowing, and building value when she emerges her creations.

Robert Ruiz ~ Robert Ruiz Art. Robert Ruiz is an artist from Brownsville, TX, who is also a Master of Fine Art Candidate at the University of Texas at Rio Grande Valley with Bachelors of Fine Art, concentration in Drawing and New Media, from the University of Texas at San Antonio. He is also currently the Art Director at the Carlotta Petrina Museum and Artist liaison for the City of Brownsville Mural Program. Check out his work.

Banter Republic ~ Gottfried. It’s just banter. Banter, comedy, humor, lifestyle, Living. He might even ask you if a period can be italicized. Be entertained and engaged. No hidden Oz behind the curtain here.

Theresa, Soul Gatherings ~ Spiritual Moments in the Human Experience. Wonderful quotes and perspective here. A great daily.

Gabriela M. ~ Short Prose Fiction. Author of the Year (2019) at Spillword Press NYC. You can swim in these words. Take a dip.

Keith’s SecondVoice ~ African Poetry. I found Keith’s work last week. He liked a comment I made on another’s blog, don’t remember which as I clicked right through to his site. Wonderfully powerful, muscular language full of grit and flow and resonance and well-played metaphor that is apt and expressive and clear.

Carsten Wieland ~ Brushpark Watercolors ~ Aquarelle und Zeichnungen von Carsten Wieland. Power in color and fluid forms here. Please visit this wonderfully powerful feast for the eyes and process expressed with watercolors.

RoadtirementTraveling and retired. This couple and their experiences and travels and family… just make me smile. Real and robust for being themselves. Plus, they’re gardeners. What ever could go wrong? Great sense of humor and wonderful outlook on life. Woo Hoo shout-out to the Roadtirement Etsy shop! Check it out.

Tutu’s edible logic ~ Food makes sense. Exquisite and intelligent and nourishing and informative.

Wander the Lines ~ Step into my reading life. Looking for a new book to read? Stop in here for a treat and a great perspective.

Delusional Bubble ~ Life is a bubble, Make it as delusional as possible. Travel the world. I feel Rick Steves is cool, and he’s also not the only game in town.

Joanne Sprott ~ Cosmic Whispers. Let’s Walk the Spiral Path Together. Poetry, depthful thought, and generally all things Joanne = things that matter and have substance and are important and/or are simply interesting.

Learn Tarot: Naima Healer ~ Self-Healing through the Present Moment. Wonderful work with a just as wonderful Hoo Doo deck. Naima has just started out blogging, and I firmly feel she started out on just the right foot. Sensitive, sensible with wit and wisdom not disconnected from lineage. She may have just started blogging, though she’s no novice Reader.

Bonnie Cehovet ~ Flash Fiction. Author. Tarot. Consummate Reviewer. Want a solid story? Bonnie’ll get your there. Bonnie has a way about only working with things she resonates with. She doesn’t do negative reviews, understands that that is a waste of her blessings and value. I beyond resonate with and respect that. What’s the point of non-things? CHeck out good things here.

Croque-Melpomene ~ Author of Within Paravent Walls. Pentalingual Idealist. Writer of psycho-corporeal Poetry. Creator of Croque-Melpomene & Les Femmes de la Décadence. Chthonic Numinosity, depth with no fear of addressing behemoth-level emotional topics through her poetry and evolved wonderment and continual curiosity. She runs deep, and takes the proper gear to do so… herself. I see a chthonic numinosity in her poetry that is akin to night and day stained glass. Well worth the visit. Powerful. Intense. Heartfelt. I advise to bring tissues for all the right reasons.

Saania2086 ~ Philosophy is all about being curious, asking basic questions. And it can be fun! If P, then Q. If you want good sense, then go here to see what dynamic mind dish is being served up today.

Charlescearl’s Weblog ~ Musings on fascinating things. Important and fascinating things well said. Charles not only thinks things through, he lives them through. You can feel it in his writing. Don’t go for the writing. Go for experience you will remember. Indelible is a word, and a good one with Charles’ weblog.

Jane Lurie Photography ~ powerful, evocative freeze-frames of architectural images that are definitely not secretly active. These images live out loud! They are refined. And they are as natural as they are refined, like an exquisitely cut emerald or sapphire or ruby kind of refined. There’s nothing hidden in the rough here. These beauties have some pipes in their visual voice.

Timothy Price ~ Off Center & Not Even. Is variety the spice of life? Go here and see! The photography is magnificent.

Mary K. Greer’s Tarot Blog ~ Tarot helps you meet whatever comes in the best possible way. Mary matters. Professionally. As a person. As an author. Mary matters. Sweet and direct and courageous and inventive and FUN. Oh, she was a wicked cool sense of humor. Many deep wells feed Mary’s work. Warning: Immersion here may lead to ablution.

Enchanted Seashells by Princess Rosebud ~ Beguiling pearls of wit, wisdom, and whimsy-with attitude. I’m not going to add more words to that. If that doesn’t grab you… A Princess is simply a Queen not yet sitting..

Dr. Eric Perry ~ Psychology to Motivate | Inspire | Uplift. Wonderfully full and relevant and engaged Psychology articles with clarity of voice. I full-on dig when things are as robust as they are clear, especially when directly dealing with intensities. This site, is certainly that.

The Dihedral ~ More than just climbing. A lot more. And, climbing is a lot in itself. Read a new route today at The Dihedral. Dammit! No, not wormsign. Worse. The covert Covid-19 struck again. Visit The Dihedral for a seriously wicked and wonderfully solid attitude of Not Wasting Trouble.

Cristian Mihai ~ Professional Blogger. Sense & Sensibility meets the info age? He’s not afraid to say it, whatever he says. No walking on eggshells here, well, unless he starts making compost for the garden. Excellent tips for bloggers and thinkers and feelers.

Susi Bocks ~ I Write Her. My words for Susi’s writing go something like this. You talk a good game, Dood, but can you (Susi) Bocks? Concise might even be too long a word. The consistency of depth here is… well, I have a deep respect for how much she does with so little and its never sparse. Muscular and powerful language. I’d call her the Bruce Lee of words.

The Alchemist’s Studio ~ Raku, vessels, Alchemy in action. Pottery with heart and soul PLUS some PUNitive humor to boot. Don’t miss the Hens! Another place of great perspective.

Enjoy the DNA of our Solar System as it moves along its 230-million year orbit around our Milky Way galaxy. Credit to A.T. Mann for sending me this years back when he was a guest on my Inner State Highways internet TV show. Hmmm, I miss doing that. Well, I might want to do something about that…

This is such a cool creation about the larger creation we live our own orbits within.

Helix and DNA strands anyone? There’s such a wonderful Who let the dogs out? Us, our world and solar system itself in orbit.

Solar System & DNA

& This Week’s SI Music & Video

May you fill your spaces with the good stuff Your way

Last Week was a WOW 12-Year Old

I discovered a multi-instrumentalist Polymath. Check that link above! The idea of a one man band never knew it so well. And, ……

Music For The Week Brought to You by the Asteroid Moira, #638

Moira is Saturn’s (Chronos’/Kronos’) wife. As Saturn rules chronological time, Moira correspondingly rules Life Time, or destiny. Moira is one of the three Greek Fates — Nona, Decuma, and Moira. The thread Moira weaves into your life in your Natal Astrology Chart is that of your internal sense of time, your natural sense of timing, the natural rhythm of the way your inner waves pulse and dance.

I Like To Think of Moira As

I like to think of her as The Silent Inner Music like a glass top lake, calm, teeming with life below, though still. And, I feel the ways we are naturally influenced comes from how this calm, glass top lake of our Silent Inner Music ripples and resonates to strike chords and interference pattern dischords within us as we experience things. For example: when you experience trauma, I gather there are interference patterns across this lake like its disturbed; when you experience beauty or joy or pleasure or all three, I gather there are wonderful, sacred geometry patterns resonating and reverberating in harmony, and that maybe what brings on those cascades of ablution tingles when you hear someone singing who has a wonderfully moving voice that grace you with ear-gasms of varying degrees in part, parts, or all throughout your body.

This Week I Played

This week I played a single-minded game in triplicate to present you one of the new meditation and Mindfulness techniques I have created. I call it Breathing Your Inner Music With Moira. To keep it fun and simple and also dial in a hefty well of substance as well, I’ve made it experiential rather than technical. I hope with this week’s Moira gig you have the opportunity to hear your natural rhythms more clearly, hear the natural and beautiful chords that are struck inside you when you resonate with something, and as well experience your Inner Silence, your Inner 4-charactered ~A~U~M~ (OM) Silence.

You Say

You say, Jordan! Geez! Can you count! There are only 3 letters there. I just smile at that. What about the space between the notes in music, the interstices, the synapse invisi-bridges? The 4th character in ~A~U~M~ is the Silence that swims within between the letter-sounds fed from the Silence all around them.

~ Silence ~ The Silence of Light ~ The Silence in Darkness ~

I resonated with the trinity above swimming a quaternity in Silence. You can make your own 3-experiential preambles from the above by substituting 3 experiential gigs you resonate with to tune up and warm up your inner rhythms to then work with the simple, though I find effective, exercise below. ImaginAction made me do it.

Take a breather for… well… let’s keep to theme. Take a breather in full-boat Silence for 56 seconds (or there-around. Please don’t clinch up trying to be too exact. I suggest to use about 56 seconds as an approximate range for the initial length) with your eyes closed calmly breathing. Then, take 4 long and deep and full breaths. Then, repeat both one more time — the 56-second breather, and then 4 deep and long Master Violin Bow Bindu Breaths. Then, listen to the music of Silence within you. Experience YOU, the Natural You. Your heartbeat. Your breath. Any stomach gurgles like someone playing the triangle or tympani at the back of the symphony. Heck, you might fart and laugh, who brought the barking spider goos to the symphony? Have fun with it, and give yourself a wide berth. And, may I suggest that there’s only one Prinicpal in your Principal’s office. You! And, lose the office hours to simply be you, Sovereign You.

What does your Inner Silence sound like to you?

After Doing This Initial Exercise

After doing this initial exercise, I suggest to do this when you are calm, when you are angry, when you are confused, when… well, with any feeling you have. Learn your instrument. How do you sound inside when experiencing these feelings? What does your glass top lake mirror in its pattern from your feeling? Sacred geometry? Simple Notes that are simply pleasant. Chords? Discord’s? Full-on frenetic interference patterns? Standing waves? False harmonics? Ebbs and flows? Harmonics? Sharps? Flats? Both? Neither-Either-None? The list goes on as long as the ways you resonate whether they are positive or negative or just simply are.

Maybe You Didn’t Realize You We’re

Maybe you didn’t realize you were a magician musician inside with how your particular Silence is tuned. I hope you soon come to experience what I am talking about here. Again, ImaginAction made me do it. I tend to use the products and systems I create to enhance my divination, imagination, creativity, Tarot, Mindfulness, Astrology, Art… and generally to enhance and amplify the value I experience in my life. You can purchase either ImaginAction (103 pages, 78 in full color) and/or ImaginAction 2.0 ~ The Unplugged Sessions (98 pages, 66 in full color) by clicking on the Shop link in the footer.

Enjoy the Inner Music of your particular brand of Silence. Everything you do swims in it as if your life itself IS the ~A~U~M~. Feel that. Is that cool or what?!

What Does Your Music Sound Like?

Fluorite for clarity

Thank you for your support.

Will you invest a coffee or tea in yourself and your creativity/divination/mindfulness tools and purchase your copy of ImaginAction or ImaginAction 2.0 below? Both in easy to use pdf format. You get to download 3 copies each. One for you, 2 to share or pay forward on a lark. Or, as Esther did, buy 2. Take care of yourself with one on your phone, one on your tablet, one on your laptop or other device. Then, 3 to share. Then, she bought 2 more. It makes me smile to know that people’s eyes may light up that I’ve never even been indirectly in contact with. Now, THAT’s a great contagion spread.

Your Life, Your Way

Have a Wonderful Weekend & a Great Week

CONGRATULATIONS TO

Clair Amara Foncé!!!!

Clair Amara Foncé

A winner chosen where all entries actually won. Karen Sealey of The Pure and Blessed Way submitted Amara. Timothy Price of Off Center & Not Even submitted Clair Foncé. Oz behind the curtain doing a little name matchmaking alchemy made for Clair Amara Foncé. So, the WINNER is really both Karen and Timothy for bringing together two magnetic names that created a binary star system of a one name solar system! Hey, they gave the me the recipe. I just put it together and shoved it in the pre-heated oven. VoiLA! VoiCI! can’t take credit for that. It is their recipes combined that did that. Though, it’s delicious to me! LOVE that name!

I’ll set up the open poll soon. It won’t have a closing date, though at some point it will most likely close. A month? Months? We’ll see. I am going to rest in that regard from it, steep in what came out of it for me, personally. On to this post…

A Poll Gifting Personal Lessons

I firmly operate with the premise that there are no mistakes, that those are all OFLs — Opportunities For Learning. Also tenor into the concept of OFLs the degree to which I can keep facing something wise in time and keep perspective and wits with my other concept of Don’t Waste Trouble.

This Poll Experience

This poll experience shook out some interference patterns that were nascent, often called triggers. What were those? How and where I get frustrated, and by what. Vulnerability. A furthered ability to receive. Moving right along after taking the car into the wall so to speak, with a newfound evening of the keel after righting the ship…

How & Where I Get Frustrated & by What

Not that it doesn’t go my way or lack of control. I’m generally comfortable with the not-knowing and what may come my way. I cut my teeth for decades on deadline, always on deadline, never really stopping, while keeping perspective. With your head down all the time in the work, though, Narcissus can overcome perspective, hijack it even to kidnap it to dwell only within, rather than both within and about.

It’s when I dive in — so this is on me, I own it, shoulder it — and I’m not yet adept at say… A Poll… :), don’t even have the Learner’s Permit yet. Yet, there I go trying to break it, test the system, and I hit the gas. More below about testing and competing with. You see, I tend to run before I walk. It’s simply my way. I get the hang of it, and then learn by doing. Heck, I certainly End with a test of some limits to know where not to point the thing later, huh? And, hmmm….

Vulnerability

Out of nowhere what was fun With The Poll like a birthday party, it turned into a crazy lighting storm of the crash of tech things all around in the Poll Post behind the scenes and out here. 5/29 in the title when it was 7/29, and 7/29 in the body. Yarn hanging off the sweater so to speak, and when I hit the gas I basically tied a rock to that yarn and tossed it over…. DAYum. That sweater went quick.

Exposed! Vulnerable! Yup, I molted. The snake his skin shedded, the snake his skin not missed. For… look at all the pretty colors now refreshed! And, advisable, though I don’t need to necessarily crawl under a rock to be safe while the fresh oyster-flesh colors adjust to the environment. I do, though, advise myself some rest, and to turn into what it is I am doing here with my public voice from the heart on my blog. And, keep this experience. Steep in it and allow it to influence me as I continue to move forward. Solid, new ways of looking at things, and structure, to explore. Good stuff.

The ability to receive

I was paid quite an accolade in a comment last night. Thank you Princess Rosebud of Enchanted Seashells. I wholeheartedly appreciate what you expressed to me about my way. That is quite a gift I will cherish. Thank You.

Moving Right Along. Evolve. Always Evolve

As I move right along after I took the car into the wall so to speak, I move right along with a newfound evening of my directional keel stabilizing the righted ship. I don’t try to evolve. I don’t try to be evolved, though I own that that is a positive consequence of the work. I work to be better than I was yesterday. I don’t compete with me yesterday. I’m more of an Architect about that. I build back in with the importance of a strong cornerstone to brace against within integrated to be braced in turn on and supported by a strong and conscious foundation… of experience.

Rather Than

Rather than, I’ll do better, as that sounds like something one would say to the Principal when in trouble… because I operate with only one Principal in the Principal’s Office of the world. Me in Nature, as much as possible with my Natural Inner Nature Always evolving. Rather than that, shame and guilt were left at the door 3 years ago. Like worry, there’s really no reason for them, really no reason to cow, especially in the face of something powerful, intense, or simply important and/or strong.

Flying As

Flying as high as your roots go deep requires a free flow of seamless segues throughout the system. Synapses of comms between all areas across the highs and lows confluence in the Now. This makes for healthy growth. The growth I experienced in this poll process loosened up my roots. That made for some wobbly for a bit, some rumbles in a tectonic shift opening a natural inner fault line. It also made me a bit Icarus at the above level falling from the wobbly at the trunk roots loosened, not so firmly entrenched in a solid way.

The balance was good enough. No falling down, just a little freefalling for a bit,, and as I work with a net firmly stapled to the floor… the tech issues brought up a rumble from below, and my internal editor came to the fore in force. This is a Part Of me that historically, tirelessly, never stops. Though, this poll brought him up in a new way. Thoughts of, even commands of, Shut it down. Shut it down now. You look foolish. You’re now crying wolf. Cut your losses. Cut it out. This is an. Outrage. Shut down this poll now. I was already frustrated, not in a strong place, though I protected myself and my sovereignty with, No. Interesting. This was literally an old boss of mine. Nice.

But Jordan, you look

I said, NO. NO doesn’t mean ‘no.’ NO means STOP. NOW.

That one word is a complete sentence without explanation. Is all you do critique? If so, what do you actually do of substance other than fit, finish, and polish? 1 you’re attempting to kick me while I’m down. Why do you only come around then? Are you afraid of your strength, your power?. 2 Are you familiar with?:

As soon as you concern yourself with the ‘good’ or ‘bad’ of your fellows, you create an opening in your heart for maliciousness to enter. Testing, competing with, and criticizing others weakens and defeats you.

~ Morihei Ueshiba, Founder of Aikido — The Art of Peace

Rather than coming off as a school marm busy-body know-it-all, what’s your actual message? I’m intensely interested… because I dwell in the place where I don’t desire perfection, simply excellence with flexibility, fluidity, and results… actionably. I tend to hear Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s:

Perfection is attained not when there’s nothing more to add, but when there’s nothing left to remove.

~ Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

I’ll take excellence over perfection. Perfection would be death, nothing left to do. BORRRRR-INGGG. SO not in the Now. That provides a counterbalance to Daedalus and Icarus‘ story where Icarus flies too high, his wax melts, and he falls as his feathers fall out. Youth falling out of the sky like chaff from the wheat in the wind from poorly attached tools? Please keep that youth stuff. Simply integrate it more effectively as…:

A heart in love with beauty never grows old.

~ Turkish Proverb

That concept, nothing more to remove internally, is the immediate and also lifelong goal of the Psychological modality of Brainspotting. Nothing left to remove. Unfettered, one is able to live their life in seamless segues of connection. AND, I’ll add… wasn’t that really me posing the question to myself if I am afraid of my strength and power? Of course it was. I had a beautifully vulnerable series of moments as this poll experience began to unfold not even to get up to a house of cards. It just kept fawn-stumbling around. One thing after another, tumbling, free-falling. COOL. I have some new ways to learn how to walk! Work on the legs, the trunk. Work on that which supports me.

The Poll Trouble Provided Me Lessons in

Under Stress, How Integrated and Reinforced My Connections Are or Are Not

Because under stress is when you discover the treasures of your triggers. Face them. Address them in silence, and listen with locked eyes. What’s their message. After listening fully, listening through their pauses, and Rantras and admonishments and accusations and blaming and shaming and and and… and they subside to listen back, I ask, Do you have a message for me? What is your message? THe focused power of patience flows in to the space between and around us. It may take a minute. A month. A Year. Several took 47 years until ai was 52. No expectations. Once the question is out there, I now subside, give who I asked the full floor until after they have responded. It’s like a voicemail. Leave one. Wait until they call back. Leaving two or three or more before they respond? That can be another story for another time. Wait. Keep it. Keep the wait. The respect does well for the full perspective of the other to form in response. And also, they’re not required to. They may have responded non-verbally. Listen to that response as well.

Adversity doesn’t build character. It reveals it.

~ James Lane Allen… though, I think Aristotle said it prior… which makes me wonder if he stole it from the Egyptians… who in turn… all the back to my alter ego Grog… who I think went to the future to steal, Good poets borrow Great poets steal, from T.S. Eliot… who as we all know also traveled 100 years into the future to steal it from me. Geez. Maybe we should create a new word. Plagiarism. Think it will catch on?

What has caught on for you during the experience of this most every planet and asteroid (larger ones) transiting is in Rx (Retrograde) week?

Clair Amara Foncé

Provisional WINNER!

CONGRATULATIONS TO

Clair Amara Foncé!!!!

A winner chosen where all entries actually won. Karen Sealey of The Pure and Blessed Way submitted Amara. Timothy Price of Off Center & Not Even submitted Clair Foncé. Oz behind the curtain doing a little name matchmaking alchemy behind the curtain made Clair Amara Foncé. So, the WINNER is really both Karen and Timothy for bringing together two magnets that created a binary star system of a name! Hey, they gave the me the recipe. I just put it together and shoved it in the oven. VoiLA! VoiCI! can’t take credit for that, though it’s delicious! LOVE that name!

Should The Name Be Provisional?

WTF Jordan, PROVISIONAL NAME NOW?!! This poll has been a total PITA. You’ve asked us to come back multiple times! The 1st was legit for the tie, though what was it 2? 3 times on this one due to technical difficulties. It was supposed to be cool and halved that vested anticipation… and it kinda got buzz killed, huh? Sorry about all the tech issues that came up. Why are you thinking it should be a Provisional Name? Another poll? Best 2 out of 3? What drives that?

Thank you for asking, and even more thanks for blasting your volcano at the beginning. That was full-on and honest intensity. Some people might run through and try to buzzkill that and call it a trigger, though I’ll back you up. Sometimes a cigar is a cigar, and a lot of times reasons can be unreasonable.You know, like that kind of relationship where it is in a constant lost loop of where are we? relationship talk? Instead of having a relationship. It sounds like trips as a kid: Are we there yet? Are we there yet? Experience the relationship not the worry. Experience the road trip not the destination.

So, I a, I digress. I appreciate you opening up with intensity. That’s a great storm, dials in to the weather of the conversation and whether I need Shorts and a T-shirt, an umbrella, a coat… or a Kevlar Blast Jacket Or The Bomb Squad. Hey, it is what it is when it is, isn’t it? All of those are fine. Nature does those intense things, too, and washes up on its shore after. I’m just seeing a correspondence here to the Civil Rights movement. Not that my blog will inform the ACLU or the movement — that by the way should not have to be a movement if people would stop being dicks.

Though, the technical difficulties shut down the poll automatically from a time zone setting that was not at default… or vice versa… no matter on that. VOTERS WERE TURNED AWAY. That doesn’t sit well with me.

So, Here’s What I’m Going To Do

I am going to set up another poll, and leave it open. At some point in the future… we’ll take a look and see. I do apologize to all who came to play in the fun sandbox of the What’s Her Name? poll yesterday and the day before when I was not aware it automatically shut down. I guess that’s why they have volunteers at the polls. I didn’t realize I needed to helicopter it.

I do sincerely apologize for wasting your valuable time yesterday and the day before with the poll doors not being open.

For Now, Though

Clair Amara Foncé will sit as the Crown of her Name.

May I Introduce

Clair Amara Foncé

Clair Amara Foncé

Thank you for Visiting!

Name Poll FIXED. PARDON, WAS BROKEN. PLEASE TRY TO VOTE AGAIN

I know Who I am. Who Am I to you? Not necessarily superficial persona, how my substance comes across. Let’s see how the poll shakes out. Ex-Ci-TING! This’ll be fun

Run-off Poll

PARDON, this is my 1st poll, and somehow strangely enough the poll settings were set up to be in an Oz (Australian Time Zone) so it was 14-16 -18 hours in the future from where I am, and automatically closed at 12:01a THERE. I apologize for asking you to come back and vote. Sometimes, nothing great ever begins without a little controversy. TIme to be fluid for me! Voting remains open from now until 12:01 EST, just a little over 7 hours from now.

The 1st vote ended up in a 3-way tie between The Trinity of…

Amara ~ 17 Votes

Amara is the Italian word for bitter, from the same root as Mary and Miriam. It has separate roots in West Africa as a name that means grace in the Igbo language. These two meanings are the best-known, but Amara is also a Sanskrit name meaning immortal, and a Mongolian name meaning peaceful, by Karen Sealey of The Pure and Blessed Way

ImaginAction in Mindfulness

See

Experience ImaginAction and ImaginAction 2.0 ~ The Unplugged Sessions in action in your Mindfulness Meditation. Simply gaze into one of the 78 eSpa Ablution Pools and breathe. I’m honored at this heartfelt accolade. Esther S. expressed:

Dear Jordan,

it was almost instant. All the anxiety blew away as I gazed, immersed in the image. I forgot to pick up my cards. I even forgot the question on the page. It was the most wonderful meditation session I’ve had in quite a while. And, when I did get back to the question later, when I did pick up the cards, the flow of the reading was SO me I felt so washed. Yes to Ablution Pools! I truly did discover Inner Inheritances. Even some things I was uncomfortable with about myself began to present themselves as allies. Each patiently brought a treasured message of self-wisdom from their experience of being trunked in the pain of my trauma. I was almost in disbelief. What was at once uncomfortable, and that I sidestepped at every turn… it was released in minutes. Unbound! My whole life up to that point became my toolbox, completely, unapologetically, and without shame anymore. Oh YES I received the messages I already had within, and then the body tingles, and then they re-integrated. I’ve never had healing be so simple and fun just like a great swim. Thank you.Wholehearted thanks for creating ImaginAction. Now I use it for Mindfulness Meditation, Tarot, and sometimes just to clear the air of my troubles. So Simple. So refreshing. I’m being healed by beauty, growing exquisitely. And now there’s ImaginAction 2.0? The world is a better place for me now.

~ Esther S

P.S. I forgot to mention how blown away I was when I first opened the pdf downloadeds. Really Jordan. ImaginAction is 103 pages, and 2.0 is 98 pages. All for the price of a coffee? Just wow! And, I loved being able to download 3 copies of each, 1 for myself, 2 to share with friends. What a grand suggestion. That also sparked something new in me. I love coffee, so for the price of a coffee I took care of myself 1st. 1 on my phone, 1 on my tablet, 1 on my laptop. It’s like I have digital fluorite for calm clarity and persepctive in my pocket wherever I go now. Like I said, I love coffee, so I bought two sets. I have those 3 copies parked to pay forward to people when the moment strikes. I love this serendipity stuff of yours. It’s no pie in the sky. Get a fork! I may just keep buying a set here and there, so I’m always prepared, stocked with such a wonderful gift to brighten someone’s life. ImaginAction is such a feat. I don’t know how you came up with all those depthful sanctuaries of questions. But, you did, and here they are. 🙂 You’re the best. Thank you.

~ Esther S.

What’s different? Excellent question. The original ImaginAction throws you literally hundreds of bones for self-development and to actionably increase your effectiveness to implement your goals and dreams. Those bones are in the form of evocative questions asked in the context of lush immersion pools of artwork, sacred and alive places to nest your dreams, to grow them to fruition.

ImaginAction 2.0 ~ The Unplugged Sessions is literally that. Unplugged, like a band doing a heart-tingling bad-ass acoustic version of one of their great songs. Not rough and raw and unrefined. Full-on heartfelt and gripping. Magnetic. ImaginAction 2.0 is ImaginAction stripped down to only the heart of the matter… Heck, an early McClaren was still a McClaren. Why have a dash when you can just put on a helmet and feel the high octane fun of the foot into the floor?

ImaginAction 2.0 is basically an eSpa all to yourself with ablution pools to dive into and immerse yourself, your ideas. Only 2 things are required. You, and the Immersion Pools eSpa of 66 full-color saturated places of inspiration that ImaginAction provides you. You wanna soak up some goodness?

There are no questions in v2.0, just pure eSpa pools + a fun Intro Adventure Story and some other percs on the way to the eSpa… well, there is 1 question… though only one… and then ALL 66 Constructing the Center immersive ablution pools to dial into and amplify your creativity and imagination and the effectiveness of YOU. Help yourself invest in your goals and dreams to build even more value as you bring them into the real.

Sombra Encantada ~ didn’t make the initial cut as it was TOO GOOD. She executive-decision pulled it over and hired it on the spot to head up her Modus Operandi Department

Enchanted Shadow by Timothy Price of Off Center & Not Even. Is this not her name, but instead expressive of her deep well fueling her Mode of Being behind the name that shakes out of this process? Hmmm… Well, YES it was! She snatched this one right up To head up her Modus Operandi Department. Excellent addition to the team!

Note: Sombra Encantada is not an Honorary Mention. She made an executive-decision-to-hire-it-on-the-spot. The submittal was from Timothy Price of Off Center & Not Even.
