In my nursing days I was objectively aware that frustration and being treated with contempt was/is an issue for the elderly and disabled (for patients; residents; clients)
I have always treated people with respect regardless of disability; race; age; sex; sexual preference; religion etc.
A couple examples:
One young lady who suffered with Freidriech Ataxia when she changed service providers said that she would not change unless they hired me.
I thought “I am not that good!” and then I met her other carers who were so patronising.
When I worked in a major hospital I was told off for spoiling patients when all I was doing was treating them like people.
(I helped them in my own time –not as part of my shift as there wasnt enough time)
I am now old, disabled overweight and poor so am subjectively aware of frustration and being treated with contempt.
(I paid 48 percent of my wages in tax in the 1990s– over $1000 per fortnight and dont get that for my pension now — I am grateful that there is a pension — i have no savings left
My hairdresser said she could cut my hair 16th –when I said that I had no money she said free –Christmas present — but I insisted on paying as soon as I get my pension
with age comes wisdom and I am determined to be healthier and slimmer using affirmations: diet and doing what exercises that am able to do.
Plus I am grateful for where I live and for all the trees and birds in my garden and for friends and family that help and support me.
“BELIEVE IN THE POSSIBILITY OF WHAT YOU INTEND TO DO, HOLD IT STRONGLY IN YOUR MIND AND IT WILL HAPPEN”
From Natural Magic by Doreen Valiente
On the 4th April 2017 I published my sci fi short story as an eBook – I later made it a paperback and have published 2 more books
All I have received in 6 years is $27
A friend who put his music with Amazon never got much in royalties and said they come up with costs and expenses not listed
They have exclusive rights to my books so I cannot remove same
I didn’t write them for the money
The sci fi is social satire
And the clairvoyance is to tell some of my experiences
But these days when I am struggling to buy groceries and not well enough to do readings it would be nice to have a little extra money
In the following book I hope to help those who wish to develop their clairvoyant abilities.
In “The Clairvoyant Experiences Of A Sceptic” I told a few of my clairvoyant experiences.
Listening to others similar stories made me realize that
it is so much better if you can have these experiences first hand.
Kung fu tz (Confucius) say “Perseverance prospers”
So don’t give up – you will succeed
And use the recorded meditations in my blog
The clairvoyant Experiences of a Sceptic is not a literary masterpiece
but a true story. I majored in sociology not literature
I dont know the meaning of life:
nor understand the nature of reality:
I do know physical death is not the end.
And there are so many amazing stories omitted so as not to break client confidentiality.
The second part I wrote as therapy and had not intended to include.
It wasn’t included in the original l publication
( I started shaking when I tried to write about the abuse so it is badly written and a great deal omitted)
A SHORT STORY ABOUT HEALING THE BLUE PLANET
I wrote and published this sci fi short story a few years ago (under the above title) when the human population was only 7.4 billion:
(1st published 4th April 2017)
It is now 8 billion.
Our cultural norms and the Protestant Ethic are causing the extinction of all life.
I wrote this as social satire and sympathetic magic
I realize my writing style doesn’t fit what people expect
My excuse –I majored in sociology not literature 😛
I wanted to put my idea that humans are not indigenous to the planet
A few lines from this short story:
“Most humans think that those who live in harmony with the environment are primitive and inferior. Actually they don’t think.
They just mindlessly conform to what those in power and their entertainment media tell them.
They are really stupid but consider themselves superior to all other life forms because they talk:
They think if something or someone doesn’t talk they don’t understand.
They thoughtlessly destroy everything. They call some creatures vermin, when humans are the vermin. They kill insects and destroy all the trees despite the fact that insects and trees are essential.
And everything literally goes down the drain polluting the oceans instead of nourishing other life.”
