Bringing awareness for men suffering from body anxieties.

Image may contain: one or more people and indoor

It always rubs me the wrong way when I hear of someone body shaming another person. Even more so it rubs me the wrong way when I hear someone body shaming themselves not only in my presence, but in general period. I don’t want to hear that. Love all of yourself. Love and appreciate your bodies no matter what anyone says. Don’t compare yourselves or your bodies to other people. Everyone is uniquely beautiful. Everyone is beautiful period.

These men pose nude to promote male body positivity. While I know that women face this kind of outlandish scrutiny, but men of today do as well too, more than some realize.

One man says, “Up until recently, I couldn’t go swimming without wearing a t-shirt. I would never bare all in public. Not even shorts.”

These men spoke up about their body issues after they participated in a nude photo shoot to challenge “six-pack” culture.

Another man says, “I just don’t like my body, personally. You just look at other things, the way society is right now, you’re completely bombarded with Channing Tatum’s and Brad Pitts.”

The shoot was part of Alternative Fashion Fest. A fashion show that showcases diverse beauty. The organizers noticed a lack of awareness for men suffering from body anxieties.

Another guy says, “People seem to think it’s okay to tell me I’m too thin. So they’ll always comment about like, “Where’s your bum?”

The photos will be turned into a calendar and sold with ALL profits going to a mental health charity. Roll the brief clip on what they have to say:

Labeling confines you to a box and gives the illusion you have an identity

 

A teenager punk rocking drug user covered in tattoos might make one believe they have no purpose, but don’t be fooled by their choices or form of personal self-expression at first glance.  Strip away the external costume one chooses to wear this lifetime to see the truth.   Eradicate the labels burdened upon oneself such as black, white, gay, straight, male, female, liberal, conservative, and so on.

Labeling confines you to a box and gives the illusion you have an identity, but when you limit and restrict yourself with a label, then you risk losing your soul’s uniqueness.  One of the goals of the human ego is to repress, limit, impede, and hold you down.  It throws you in the passenger seat with blinders on and drives you over dangerous roads with speed bumps and traffic spikes.  In that space, you’re unable to penetrate through any surface intended to expose reality.

To one extent a label needs to be used to give someone a deeper understanding of something when they’re unable to come to that conclusion through telepathy, but you are not the labels you use to describe yourself in the end.  The intention of labels is to divide and create separation.  It compartmentalizes others into divisions not aligned with any soul’s existence.  You lose authentic identity with a label since brands simultaneously give the illusion of a special uniqueness, but you don’t need a label to be exceptional because everyone’s light shines when stripped of the outdated labels that ultimately break down and destroy who your soul is in truth.

Individuality is evident without the need to distract through exclusions and groupings.  Classifying others and forcing them into boxes creates unhealthy competition to one up each other and prove your group is the exceptional one.  Once you do that, then you’ve handed the steering wheel to the ego.  There is no synchronization when you are out of alignment of your most indisputable self.

Back home all souls live in harmony regardless of being distinctive from one another.  It’s not on their radar to point out differences because eccentricity is honored and encouraged. Whereas on Earth the dissimilarities are shunned or feared because it makes the ego uncomfortable preferring that everyone be a clone.   Stand out without hiding behind limitations and imperfections.  Who are you without any of these outdated fads and labels you use to describe yourself?

Archangel Michael is a fearless protector, bouncer, and bodyguard

Image may contain: outdoor

My youngest sister, the world traveler, texted this shot, “I know you’re probably asleep but I’m on a canal cruise in Amsterdam and saw that statue of Archangel Michael and thought you’d like it. Love you.”

That text was from my youngest sister who turned 22 a month ago, which if math is your strong suit then you know I’m 22 years older. She knows of my deep long term relationship with Archangel Michael. The furious force that moves around with me every second of every minute for the last sixteen years. Archangel Michael is available to all that call on him. He is the General that supervises, instructs, and commands all of the angels and all of the Warrior of Lights back home and on Earth. He is one of the most powerful beings of all existence striking out evil just by entering the vicinity. He is the only being in the Universe that is louder than God.

He is my protector and bodyguard bouncer instilling fearlessness and sometimes cockiness into my persona. Archangel Michael is fearless and cocky as he knows he is the sh*t as he sometimes brags about it by showing off his many spectrum of lights at times for no reason at all like a peacock displaying its feathers proudly laughing it off and moving on.

I devote a chapter to Archangel Michael in my book, “Connecting with the Archangels”.

Two of my long term relationships to date started out as a crush

Image may contain: one or more people, sky, outdoor and natureCrushes are an intense infatuation for someone who is usually unattainable for you, but I’ve always obtained my crushes on some level eventually, which I know not many people can say that.  My romantic life is a series of romantic comedies come true, but it’s not without its challenges. Sometimes you later regret wanting them so fervently.

Two of my long term relationships started out as a crush where I realized that fate was persistently orchestrating our continuous path crossing in person. I had that heart pounding heart wrenching teenage crush on them for an extended period of time before we finally merged as one. There is a part of me that is overly confident that I’ve actually stated out loud each time, “I will get that person.”

Call me arrogant if you want, but the bottom line is that I do end up getting the crush more often than not, and I don’t have to do much to get them. All I have to do is stand in front of them and each one has taken over from there. Soon they’re making a beeline to me whenever they see me, pushing themselves through a crowd to talk to me, eventually the conversation moves beyond a hello, and then there’s long drawn sentences over the course of bumping into one another until suddenly we’re fucking dating eons later.

Once together, they confess they also had a crush on me, but claimed I didn’t seem to notice them. They thought I was intense, intimidating, or that they were barking up the wrong tree and I wasn’t interested. I do come off exceptionally cold and aloof that others believe it to be disinterest. It’s my Virgo Rising/Gemini-10th House. One of the things I later ask my crush is, “What made you finally come after me?” The responses are always the same, “I was afraid I might not see you again. ”

One of the first books I wrote was about having a crush on someone and getting them. “Jagger’s Revolution” was originally called, “The Love Crush”. It’s not a fantasy for me, it’s a dream come true. It was based on the premise of having a crush on someone that you couldn’t shake and it starts to drive you mad as you’re stuck with kissing all of these frogs that mean nothing to you, and the one you want doesn’t even know you exist. But in my real life world I actually get the crush the same way the character in “Sixteen Candles” does. The humility part of me sets in when I realize they had a mutual crush on me too.

A crush pulverizes you ultimately if nothing transpires out of it and yet you keep crossing paths with them and nothing ever happens. It’s an exciting feeling until it leads to frustration and you don’t know how to stop it. You realize you have to shake it off and forget about it until bam they’re standing in front of you again and this time they’re wanting to talk. I’m caught off guard, “Okay, I’m listening.” It gradually evolves from there after endless months of wanting to give up. I’m that challenging to get close to that it takes my crushes months to finally seal the deal…….but nine times out of ten….they eventually do.

How do you know if your crush is into you or not?   Eventually work up the nerve to confess it regardless of reaction.  If it backfires and doesn’t go your way, then at least you know sooner than later. Get it out in the open, then it’s up to the crush to decide how to proceed.  If they’re not receptive or display a reaction you weren’t hoping for, then move on and let it go.  That should be the confirmation to release it.

Crushes are fun and they make you feel good.  That is up until they don’t such as when you’re wondering if you’re wasting your time.  You start to feel pain or frustration not knowing what to do.   This is why they’re called crushes, because they ultimately crush you if nothing evolves out of that state.

It’s beautiful to feel an unexplainable attraction to someone and not know why. My crushing feelings tend to subside if nothing comes of it or I don’t see them for a period of time.  It’s out of sight out of mind, until they’re in front of me again and then the feelings and attraction rise up all over again.

The crushes I’ve obtained did tell me in the end what made them come at me at full force and their reasoning was the ‘fear they might never’ see me again.

❤️🌹

You walk through a nature setting and suddenly this uplifting feeling overcomes you where stresses evaporate and clarity seeps in. Nature is one of the best healing remedies.

Spirit Communication Opens Up When You Release Negativity

Image may contain: sky, cloud and outdoor

One of the top common questions I receive from others surround others being frustrated in not being able to connect with their guide and angel.

When it feels like your connection with Spirit is non-existent where you’re not picking up on anything, then that’s typically a sign that you’re too weighed down or distracted by physical and external matters or desires. If you’re experiencing any form of negativity whether in emotions or thought processes, then that’s a block. Being mired in any of kind of physical distraction will temporarily dim or cut off the communication line with the other side. It makes it seem as if you’re not picking up on anything or you’re being ignored, which is never true because Spirit is always communicating with you regardless if you can hear them or not.

The Spirit communication gradually opens up when you start releasing and letting go of those distractions and negative feelings and thoughts. If you’re not hearing messages or guidance, then look around and take note of what’s bothering you or distracting you in the physical world, and release it. The answer as to what is creating the block is usually right in front of you. If you have more than one issue bothering you, then you have to let it all go one by one in order to allow the communication to come rushing in.

Sometimes your ego can deceive you into believing that you’re not blocked, such as the rush you get from gossip or absorbing negative media and swimming with it. The rush is deceptive because it’s also the same rush high you get from drugs, alcohol, food, etc. But soon that rush causes you to crash back down and you’re out in search of that quick fix again. That also creates a block with Spirit communication. Pushing for an answer will also block incoming messages and guidance, and so will anything connected to fear. Psychic communication hits come in when you’re in a calm non-judgmental uplifting state and you let go and let God.

Nine of Wands. Tarot Lesson Basics.

Image may contain: 1 personTAROT CARD MEANING: You’ve been weary from constant battle, but you’re being asked to not give up and keep going as you’re closer than you think to reaching your goal. The NINE OF WANDS in the Tarot is about persevering even though you might be exhausted. It’s giving until it hurts and then you give more. This is right along the lines of yesterday’s message on conjuring up strength from within.

You’ve been losing a battle and everyone knows you’re losing, yet you keep going as far as you can go regardless. You might be falling behind or stand no chance of winning, yet you keep going and end up making it! Often times, the Nine of Wands can show you winning or obtaining something you desire, but not without a fight that exhausts you or runs you down.

The image in the Nine of Wands typically shows a figure standing strong ready to go to battle. This may show someone who has no reason to be on the defensive, but they’re overall disposition is as if they are in fighting mode. They are primed and on guard ready to strike. You can be feeling as if everyone is against you, but you refuse to back down or compromise your integrity even if it means you stand alone.

The Nine of Wands can also point to someone who is self-preserved or self-protecting and on high alert. Circumstances may actually be fine, but you feel as if you’ve been dragged through the ringer clawing, kicking, and fighting back. Now you’re standing there holding the Wand almost leaning on it angrily looking around to see if anyone is going to try and take a piece of you!

The Nine of Wands is also the card of the warrior or a soldier ready to go to battle. In a reading, this can be that you’re being paranoid about someone who is back in your life again after they previously betrayed your heart. It might be an ex-lover who did you wrong, then you broke up, and they’re back with you again. The Nine of Wands can reveal you to be feeling paranoid that they might do something that negatively affects you again. This is where you’re on high alert.

This card can be telling you to keep going with a project or a job where you’re ready to throw in the towel. It can also be saying that your paranoid feelings are not unfounded and to continue to watch your back around someone. The Nine of Wands is a reminder that you’ve come so far, keep going, you can do it!!

In a love reading for someone single asking about a potential’s personality, this can show that person as having tremendous strength no matter what. You don’t want to cross this person negatively as they will attack. They might appear hard and rough around the edges, but this is because life may have made them this way. If you look deeper, you’ll find a trusted friend who has your back and will go to battle with or for you.

If you’re single and asking about love, then this card can be asking you to not give up and keep searching. This can reveal that you’ve been frustrated and over it, but the Nine of Wands says that love is coming, so keep the faith and persevere. The Nine of Wands can be the opposite of that where it’s saying that you appear to be standoffish and defensive. This is not welcoming potentials into your environment. You would need to evaluate if you need to make changes or not with how you appear to others by being softer, kinder, and friendly.

If you’re already in a love relationship, then this may be a challenging card to receive. It can say that you or your partner are being defensive with one another. It’s as if you feel they’re constantly criticizing or attacking your every move. You are on the defensive even though they may have stopped criticizing, but the scars are still there. This would be a warning card to ease the mind of one another. Sometimes no problems are evident in a relationship, but one of the partners feels defensive for reasons you cannot figure out. This is someone ready to go to battle, even though there is no reason to be.

In the movie, “I Am Sam”, the Rita character is a good example of the Nine of Wands energy. Someone who is ready for battle. She answers her phone and it’s her estranged husband asking how she is. With hostility she insists she’s fine, but responds again, “What do you mean what do I mean by that?!” You constantly feel as if you’re tip-toing around your partner because they’re touchy about every little thing you say or do. This is someone tense and on guard. This is the Nine of Wands.

This card can continue to show up for a couple who have surpassed their expiration date. It’s a never ending cycle of feeling a hostility or defensiveness with the other partner even though they’re not doing or saying anything wrong. The Nine of Wands is feeling as if there is a constant struggle in the partnership. This may ask you both to lighten up, put down the wall, and meet one another half way.

Full Moon Release to Raise Your Vibration

Release that which has been delaying you and holding you back from positive progress.  You likely already know what you need to let go of, but are procrastinating out of fear or indecision.  It is anything or anyone that brings you down or prompts you to experience consistent inadequate feelings such as depression, anger or stress.  This also includes foods and substances that are not good for you and cause your body to react negatively such as giving you low energy or irritability.  This delays you from taking positive action and in moving forward. Release anything negative so that you can truly be free and soar upwards to where your higher self lives.  When you release negative stuff, then you are on your way to obtaining your dreams.  Your dreams come true as a result of this release, but you have to do the work. You have to release negative thoughts, patterns, lifestyle choices and people.

 The Full Moon transit which happens once a month is a great time for releasing, re-aligning and then manifesting (positively – so watch your thoughts!)  Many use the night of the Full Moon to release that which no longer serves them or their higher self.  Release anything or anyone that you know is toxic and causes you to experience uncomfortable feelings.  The energy of the Full Moon is potent, intense, and powerful.  It brings up all sorts of feelings and thoughts. It has the power to magnify and direct your energy in large ways.  This is why it is important to be crystal-clear with your thoughts in general, and especially on the night of the Full Moon.

Simply having intention can make this release happen efficiently.  One way is by meditating or gazing upon the Full Moon for 5-15 minutes.  Take a deep breath in, exhale, and repeat until you are fully relaxed.  Breathe in and connect with the Moon so that you are one with it.  You can do this longer than 15 minutes if you choose.  Sitting underneath the Full Moon outside in order to make contact with you is even better.  Sometimes this is not realistic if it is a cloudy or rainy night, but as long as the intention is there is all that matters.  Mentally visualize what you would like to remove from your life.  Follow that with what you would like to see come to fruition.  This brings in your Spirit team by your side notating the work you are putting in to make healthy life changes.

Archangel Haniel is the hierarchy angel who you can benefit from working with.  Ask her to be with you through this Full Moon releasing process.  She awakens your third eye chakra which opens up clairvoyance.

Gradual movement upwards will begin for the first time this year

Image may contain: sky, cloud, grass, plant, outdoor and nature

It’s been an extremely transformational year for so many around the globe on a personal level.  In January, we saw the end of a cycle and the end of another chapter.  Many were dancing in the noise of endless gossip in 2016, which changed absolutely nothing by the way as I had repeatedly informed that it wouldn’t.  All it did was create more division, drama, and separation.

I was non-stop busy in high octane mode in healthy positive expression wrapping up an incredibly productive creative year in 2016 with back to back projects.

January was closing the chapter of the previous cycle in preparation for the next, but there is a transition that has to take place before the next chapter starts.

In February, the world went dark with the goal of pushing you to re-evaluate your connections, your work, your souls path, where you’re at personally, where you plan to go, what changes you’d like to make in your life that will bring you more peace, more love, and more serenity now.

When we moved into March, the submarine you’re gliding on traveled down into the deepest darkest depths of consciousness. In that space, you might have faced uncomfortable fears, turmoil, and anxiety.

By April, the energies had become so reckless and erratic giving you hints at what parts of your life need to be adjusted internally and externally.  It’s been three months of stand still prompting you to be more introspective than usual surrounding all of these things. Now that we’re sitting at the bottom of the ocean floor, it’s time to prep yourself for lift off.  We’ve been in that transition since February, which started the process of moving ones consciousness within and facing the truth, the demons, the anxieties. Looking at extricating anything negative.

The erratic intense emotions that rise up during a heavy Retrograde period are either self-generated or coming from other people in your vicinity.  The biggest culprit offenders tend to come from those who don’t understand what a Retrograde is, or they might not understand the effects of the Retrograde energy in general, and how to navigate through it.  When everything is blowing up in their life and they’re reacting harshly to it, they don’t know to say, “Okay, this is obviously retrograde driven, I need to take a step back.”

Someone who doesn’t understand it, doesn’t know about it, or doesn’t believe in any of it, then they are typically the ones that are darting their misguided anger and criticisms outwardly onto others.  That has more to do with the turbulent emotions they’re battling with inside rather than external forces.  It’s like someone who is experiencing unhappiness and negative feelings during a moment in their life.  Rather than taking an overdue time out, break, quiet time, or retreat, they instead take it out on those around them.  There’s that funny saying where someone says, “When I’m in a bad mood, I can’t wait to spread it around!”

In the coming weeks and months, gradual movement upwards will begin for the first time this year. Notice the areas of your life that have needed to be examined and altered. Make a pact to take action and move forward with a new outlook and perspective. Go after the goals you’ve been thinking about this year, but have felt held back by challenges.
It’ll still be a bit bumpy in the coming days and weeks, but the worst is over.

The road ahead is clearing up and clarity will seep through wiping away any confusion energy you’ve been mired in. Stay focused and pay attention to the repeated nudges coming in from above urging you to make healthy life changes so you can have more energy and motivation to apply to your life purpose with a clear mind and renewed optimistic outlook. Receive those gifts in the right spirit.

After this week, things are gonna finally lighten up for a lot of people gradually into the Summer. The last three months have seen an enormous hit professionally and personally for so many people.  And that’s because perspectives need to change and be awakened. Things were no longer working, so forced change needs to happen. And part of that requires a clearing.  Releasing.  Looking at circumstances ahead in a brighter light as we prepare for the beautiful changes coming up.

I’ve more or less been in a cocoon again the last several months, which for me happens every so often only to re-emerge in another Phoenix form.
It’s been an introspective time on a broader level.

I do try to warn others and some take it seriously and are put on alert, while others don’t, and ignore it, and brush it off.  The ones that don’t are the ones I discover that end up getting knocked down hard by going against what I said.  They end up having to take the long way around.

It has been a huge tornado whirlwind of erratic energies lately.  I know this from the constant observation of my surroundings, the repeated messages and guidance I’m receiving, as well as the confirmation from so many people writing to me with their current issues, which all seem to be related to one another. The last three months should have spent with a lot of re-evaluating and making changes to implement now as we move forward into the a new light.

The unstable emotions you experience are clues to what positive modifications you need to incorporate and execute in your life

Image may contain: ocean, sky, water, outdoor and nature

The warm Santa Ana winds have been determinedly persistent for the last couple of days. Love the way the forceful hot dry air feels as it repeatedly slams against the waves on the beach. It’s a clash of elements matching my tempestuous emotional senses that shift dangerously and erratically every few minutes of everyday of my existence. The battle between air and water isn’t much different within one’s own elemental nature when riled into passionate aggression. The ocean waves continuously rise in its warrior stance smashing into the ferocious warm winds that pass through it creating a fury upon impact. There is nothing like being swept up in this Divine outburst that inspires, uplifts, and enlightens. Each time the cold vengeful water hits the warm air, its heated up and sprays pebbles of blood on me in a baptism. It envelops your soul in a coat of serene calmness while imposing enlightening clarity onto your consciousness. This is done only to die and rise and die and rise again.

The unstable emotions you experience are clues to what positive modifications you need to incorporate and execute in your life. Notice any repetitive unhinged physical and emotional sensations within you as that can indicate guidance clues from above. Get out into a nature setting away from the crowds to clear your soul of any lower energies and toxic feelings you may have absorbed from others or conjured up within your own mind. Be extra gentle with yourself and practice positive self-care to feel more centered and peaceful. Do whatever it takes to get there, such as spending time with an uplifting friend, watch a fun film, play enriching music, sway with a lover close and tight in an embrace until you are one soul. Revive your spirit only to re-emerge stronger, wiser, and more balanced than before.

New Moon Brings on New Beginnings

Image may contain: sky, cloud and outdoor

This special New Moon happening Wednesday brings on a fresh brighter energy of change and new beginnings. The New Moon happens once a month, but what makes this one more distinct is that April has been a trying a month due to the several planetary retrograde shifts taking place. It’s made life in general feel listless and inactive. Forward movement has been near impossible, and when any advancing strides have been forged or attempted, it’s only been met with delays, challenges, or regrets.

The New Moon this week injects a healthy jolt of optimism to a month that has been lethargic. It will be short lived as the moon phases felt shift every 3 to 5 days, but still it will give a nice welcomed boost that would be much more trying without it. Mercury is still retrograde for another week, so it may be challenging getting things off the ground as it moves through its critical ending phase, but the New Moon will bring in some sliver lights of clarity into the fog bank that has enveloped the planet recently.

The positives of a Mercury Retrograde is that it brings on revelations through forced introspection. The New Moon will help crack that wide open. Its energy will add a gentle ease to things as Mercury switches direction next week. Life is typically more erratic than usual when a planet switches direction, so the New Moon will smooth out some of the rougher edges.

The New Moon is soaring through the sign of Taurus. The energy of the Taurus in general are security and stability driven. They need to feel comfortable or it’s not going to happen. When it does happen, they are capable of great success, but they still move cautiously and methodically on their own slow plodding pace. This means the New Moon energy that is present will be on the subtle end, while lending a grounding force to emotions or feelings that have been unstable lately.

Add to that Mercury Retrograde energy, and you have a double dose of slow moving progress upwards, but the key word is progress. Progress is being made pending you help it along, set new positive intentions involving the changes you plan on making in your life next month, and prepare to put them into action as we move into May, which will be a much lighter and clearer month than April.
