Thank God I am an Atheist: Pun Intended (re written)

Say religion: say fascism

Karl Marx said : “Religion is the opiate of the masses”– If people believe that they will be rewarded in an afterlife or that “god” decreed something – they are not likely to rebel in order to change things: The kings of old said they ruled by the will of the gods and were descended from same.

Religion was a way to control the masses

Now it is New Age “stuff’

We as humans attribute meaning where there is none!

We do not have some omnipotent being to please or displease Some one who will punish us if we are bad and reward us for being good. I obviously don’t believe in hell! Nor do I believe in karma. (The word actually translates to “work”) If we believe god or karma will change injustice then we wont try to do this ourselves

It was only at the beginning of this my 65th year that I admitted to myself that I did not believe in God. I spent the greater part of my life looking for my spiritual home. Wicca suited me because we respect the planet and the earth as our Mother. Well, we did when I first started. Now that it is so popular, I think most “wanna bees” are only interested in spells and being different.

I have been trying to understand the nature of reality since I was seven years old.                I have had a few theories since then. In the 1990’s I used the analogy of us living in a virtual reality and of course when “The Matrix” came to the screen so many people recommended it. The Matrix was/is a creatively brilliant movie with subtle satire.

AG00177_

I was in Women’s lib; Animal lib; Greenpeace; Trees for Life– all in an attempt to make this a better world – Women’s lib has gone to the extreme where men now need liberating! The other organisations are run by people trying to be trendy and so bound up with “red tape’ that they make things worse not better.

I am still a vegetarian and still care about all life forms with the exception of crocodiles ( including alligators ) and homosapiens!

I now realize I can only help in the microcosm of my own little home.

Humans use religion to justify not implementing zero population growth. I cannot understand why humans do not see that because there are way too many of us we take the homes and food sources away  from other life forms and these other life forms eventually become extinct. Western religion claims to care about animals but supports a meat industry and drug companies that mistreat animals on the excuse that  humans are more important.

If we credit some “Being” as having created this reality; this “Being” would have to be a sadistic psychopath. Every creature has to deprive some life form of its existence in order to survive. ( Its called eating) But also just breathing kills other life forms! As we breathe in micro organisms.

I believe everything that exists has a consciousness: And because of my clairvoyant experiences I believe everything survives beyond physical death. Pity: because there are a lot of humans who shouldn’t survive death especially when there is no hell for them to burn in!

Here endeth the lesson.

Clairvoyant Readings

This is taken from my answers to a questionnaire that my youngest grandson gave me a few years ago.

Question:

What has been your most memorable experience when giving a reading to someone?

Answer:

There are of course many: I respect peoples confidentiality when doing a reading. Also I tend not to remember peoples readings: Other clairvoyants say the same. Probably to protect the client and also not to take on other people’s problems.

I will describe three: one very upsetting: one that I was told was wrong to begin with: and a funny one.

Am putting the “funny” one first!!

I was reading for a young lady. Her father was one of the people that came through. He kept showing himself sitting on a long drop toilet: pants around his ankles; reading the paper and smoking. I didn’t feel comfortable “giving this off” !

But he insisted it was a family joke. When I told the girl, she explained that her grandfather had put “kero” down the long drop. Her dad got off the toilet throwing the cigarette butt in and blew up the building!

dunny

I while I was reading for a man in a local shop I picked up a friend of his who died in the Crimean War. The man I was reading for asked if the man had been killed or was he taken and tortured. As they had had to leave him behind. The man had been tortured. I did not feel the physical pain but the emotional horror!

grave

I read for a lady whose son had died. Off on a tangent – (When this lady first came to me I told her she would have to come back in four months. Her son had only been dead two months the first time she came for a reading. Spiritualists had taught me that people had to be dead six months before they could make contact. This isn’t true. A year later I was reading for someone whose husband came through amazingly clearly. I asked how long he had been “passed over” and was told nine weeks.) Back to the story: One of the things this lady’s son did was point to the head of his grave. She told me that there !

was nothing there! I pointed out to her that I wasn’t to know that her son had been buried. The following day I received a phone call from this lady. She told me that she had gone straight to the grave after her reading. Her son’s girlfriend had put a headstone on the grave saying “His loving Wife” and not mentioned any of the family!

 

dad

 

My Dad always told me that you shouldn’t charge for readings He believed it affected ones ability to be genuine.

But I have charged for readings for approximately 35 years. I do not charge very much! Several years ago a clairvoyant friend told me that I should charge $100 because I genuinely communicate with people who have ”passed over” At the time I was charging $30: I now charge $50 and give a pensioners discount! I realised,since way back to the 1970’s that if I charged a fortune, people would think I was an excellent clairvoyant. Because our  culture programs us to think this way.

John Edwards is genuine so I am not criticising people who charge high prices. It just isn’t how I wish to “work”!

A few years ago I finally acknowledged to myself that I was an atheist.

Surviving death has nothing to to with worshipping a god.

I think we just move to an alternate reality.

I much prefer people who don’t make clairvoyant messages “fit”.

I started consciously “seeing” ‘dead’ people etc in the seventies and we were most definitely the lunatic fringe back then: along with people that cared about the environment and animals –I was in Greenpeace ( which actually cared about the ecology back then and Animal Liberation — ditto ) And although I had been in Women’s Liberation; Women were still an inferior sub culture with no rights nor status ( one’s status came from ones husband)

I rarely told people about clairvoyance to avoid ridicule:

AG00381_

In the late seventies I was working 12 hour shifts; I turned up at a barbecue one Saturday night after work and was met by the owner of the house ( whom I had never met before) Who started ridiculing me ( I had previously “seen” and “communicated” with the grandfather of my husbands best friend. Granddad didn’t like this man’s father. And I was shown a wedding. This was all I got and I said so. My husbands friend thought that I knew everything: His father had never married his mother—Definitely taboo in his mothers day. Husbands best friend must have told this story before I arrived at the party. Hence the ridicule: I told my ridiculer his occupation and “picked up his (deceased) Dad. Made my night!

I am not interested in converting people. People are free to believe as they choose as long as “it harms none” I respect peoples right to a belief in god or religion even though I am now an athiest.

I once had a belief in god but it was a cultural norm when I was a child. I went to Sunday school – and I taught Sunday school.

AG00410_

Prayers work not because god answers them but because many people are putting out the concept that a certain thing happens.

I accept that I do not understand the nature of reality but work at understanding what I do know.

I had the idea that the best analogy for this reality is that of a virtual reality or more like the “holodeck” from Star Trek – long before the movie “The Matrix” came out.

Question everything

Surviving Death

People tend to believe that a belief in God and heaven is necessary for a belief in an “afterlife” Surviving death isn’t synonymous with a religious belief. We do not understand the nature of reality.            Well I don’t!  It appears we exist in an alternate reality when we are “not here”! In this reality the electrons are apparently moving at a different speed around the protons and neutrons so it is out of phase. ( This is my very limited understanding of quantum physics)

atom

I have written this story before. It was the incident that convinced  me that we must survive death because I certainly wasn’t reading Kym’s mind. I have had similar experiences since this one.  This was the first!

In the late 19 70’s. I was a student nurse at Strathmont Centre. I was washing dishes with a male staff nurse. We didn’t have kitchen hands in those days. Kym was 6 ft tall and rather heavy set. He had long blonde hair and dressed “Flower Power” style. A man (deceased) flashed in! (When I see or hear things they flash in a fraction of a second) He had Kym’s high forehead and similar features but wore a suit with a crepe ribbon and a cross and had a short back and sides hair cut and dark hair.

I asked Kym if his father was a minister. He asked me why and initially I would not answer. I eventually told him what I saw and Kym told me that it was his uncle. He asked me what denomination his uncle was.

I did not know.

After Kym left the kitchen I asked his uncle what he had died of. The words were that fast all I could make out was sclerosis. Because we were with the intellectually disabled I thought “tubular sclerosis?” Then I realized it was multiple sclerosis.

When we were having a tea break Kym told me that his uncle died of multiple sclerosis. I was amazed and said that his uncle had “told” me this!

Kym said “Get more”! I informed him that I couldn’t.

But I saw panama hats and monkeys. I said “He was a missionary in South America” Kym said “Yes”. I then saw masks and a jungle and said he was also a missionary in New Guinea. Kym told me this wasn’t so. When Kym came to work the next day he said that his mother had confirmed that her brother had been a missionary in New Guinea. This showed that I wasn’t just reading Kim’s mind

Healing ? For Our Beautiful Planet

AG00177_

 

I have always been concerned about the planet and other life forms. In my younger days I was ridiculed and criticized for this. Not by thinking people though! When I was in grade seven (1962) we were asked to write an essay on our greatest wish . I wrote that I wished people would care more about the environment than money. The head master wrote “Good girl” on my essay but I was embarrassed and wished I hadn’t written it.!

In the 1970’s as well as being in Women’s Liberation I was in Animal Liberation and Greenpeace and later in Trees for life. Non of these organisations appear to be coming from integrity these days. This is a broad generalisation and I apologise to those involved that really care but it seems to me that these organisations are now populated and run by people who think they are being trendy. Plus they are controlled by ridiculous rules and regulations. – I will give a brief example using Trees for Life – This century we were told to remove all non indigenous species of plant or animal- Strangely enough it didn’t included non indigenous humans? Yet humans, via mining; real estate development; road kill; pest? control; destroy more wild life and flora than cats. (Real estate companies destroy heritage bushland and pay the fines because they make much more that the fines from subdividing the land) – oops back to example –Indigenous creepers were killing native trees and plants: They were not allowed to be removed because they were indigenous. Locally trees were removed because they were not indigenous  to this area (They were indigenous to South Australia?). Leaving no trees at all ?

Anyway; why I am writing this, is that it is my bucket list to help heal the planet!

Although I know that I genuinely communicate with people no longer in this reality I do not believe there is a god Nor do I believe in karma. I studied world religion (as an elective at teachers college) and karma means work. If we wait for what we in the west call karma or god we will not attempt to change things ourselves!

I do what I can in the microcosm and ask those who wish, to please join me in sending healing to our planet. I do believe our thoughts go somewhere; and our intent has power.

Although I “work” as a solitary witch these days, I have trained would be witches and have at least an inkling as to how we create reality. From just a psychological point of view the more people that believe something, the greater the chance of it happening.

I believe that it would be better for the planet and other life forms if there were less humans. I understand the planet could support all humans if things were set up differently but what about the other life forms?

A friend of my youngest granddaughter wrote a paper proposing that zero population growth (for humans) would heal the planet’s ecology but she also noted that it was socially taboo. This just means one child per couple. (Not no children; as some seem to think)

Also the meat industry is set up with factory farming and mass slaughtering because of the huge number of humans to feed.

 

Those of you that wish, please join me in my daily affirmations.

Healing to Mother Earth

Zero population growth for homo sapiens until the planet’s ecology has healed.

( According to Green Peace – in 1970s – humans have already destroyed the planet beyond repair. I choose not to believe this!)

All laboratory animals are free, healthy, happy, fulfilled; laboratory use of animals abolished

All pets are healthy, happy and loved and respected by their humans

I also say the following affirmations but I do not expect others to join me.  My intent is not to put farmers out of a lively hood (My Dad’s family were farmers – the people who own the house next door to me are sheep farmers) – but to create a humane set up.

All live stock are free, healthy, happy, fulfilled; factory farming and the meat industry abolished

To Thy Own Self Be True

 

image002

I wrote this as my first blog: it was long: I think I saw it as writing a paper for college (uni)

I have cut out some of it.

This above all; to thine own self be true,

And it must follow, as night follows day,

Thou canst not then be false to any man,

Hamlet Act 1, scene 3, 78–82

Being true to ones self is much more than just being honest.

This Shakespeare quote is how I try to live my life.

Our culture operates on the assumption that people are honest and truthful yet this often isn’t so.

On a “white lie” level; how often do people say what they think the other person wants to hear or lie to get attention & make themselves feel important.

Lying; cheating; stealing and scams are rampant.

On the other hand one could argue that telling the truth is not always kind?

I feel so strongly about telling the truth as I believe it to be that even if I accidentally lie I feel guilty.

What I write I believe either to be true or possible. I am not “into” “absolute ideologies” so I acknowledge this is only my opinion.

The following is a quote from Marion Weinstein’s “Positive Magick”( Bibliography: page 234; Positive Magic: Earth Magic productions New York; First published in 1978 by Simon & Schuster Pocket Books New York)

Ma’Kheru, or The Word of Truth

 

The concept of Ma’ Kheru, or Maat, was a highly regarded state of being in ancient Egypt. In fact it was always hoped that by the time a person died, he/ she would have reached this state of personal evolution.

In my lifetime society’s attitude to clairvoyance and associated philosophy’s has improved along with attitudes to minority groups such as women; different races; sexual preference; etc. Although there are still many “out there” who consider clairvoyance to be a con at best and evil at worst.

People are free to believe as they choose and I have no desire to alter people’s beliefs or opinions.

I do not require other’s to believe as I do to make it true.

The clairvoyants that I know (including myself) are genuine and honest

I was made aware of a scam last century where people who went for a reading were told that a “hex” had been put on them and were charged $2,000 to remove same. Similar scams still happen

The way to avoid being conned is to trust ones “gut”!

To quote or maybe paraphrase Dr. Deepak Chopra:” We should always trust our “gut”. Every cell in our bodies has neuropeptides which means every cell thinks. It is better to trust your “gut” because it hasn’t learned to doubt what it thinks.”

I am able to see & communicate with people that have died as well as other discarnate beings. I know that my clairvoyant ability is genuine because I was extremely sceptical in the nineteen seventies when I first participated in Spiritualist psychic development groups. I made sure that I was being honest with myself so that I knew I was really “seeing”

I have had numerous experiences to confirm that I am truly communicating with beings who are no longer in this reality.

When I “see” (clairvoyance); “hear” (clairaudience) or” feel” (clairsensience) It flashes in a fraction of a second.

Despite my clairvoyant awareness and experiences I do not claim to understand the nature of reality. And I have questioned the nature of reality since I was seven years old. (six decades ago)

Knowing that I have helped someone by proving that their loved one is genuinely communicating is rewarding.

Everyone IS Clairvoyant

13007249_554391598072258_396112195393064512_n

Every one is clairvoyant:

The ability atrophies because our culture that tells us there is no such thing!

My mentor taught us that clairvoyance is a natural ability: an extension of our five senses!
To get this ability back, just use it:
I am including some really simple things to try:

Guess who is on the phone before you answer— oops this one is no good with mobiles or phones that show incoming caller! (I am showing my age here)


Have a friend give you the “given” name of someone that you do not know and visualize what this person looks like: Feel what their personality is like: their occupation etc.


If you are going somewhere that you have never been visualize this place before you go.


To see auras have someone sit in front of a pale coloured wall:                              you 
will only see colours or even the etheric over this person’s shoulders because clothes muffle the aura: (This is one of the reasons that some Wiccan traditions work skyclad)                                                                                  Most people see the etheric immediately it is a white two inch ( 5cms) band:

Every thing flashes in a fraction of a second: clairvoyance; clairaudience and clairsension:

There is a scientific explanation for us sensing someone who isn’t in our line of vision but looking at us: This same ability is often used to sense “discarnate” beings! These discarnate beings are just “out of phase”!

Proprioception. (prō’prē-ō-sěp’shən) The unconscious perception of movement and spatial orientation arising from stimuli within the body itself. In humans, these stimuli are detected by nerves within the body itself, as well as by the semicircular canals of the inner ear.


Life after death has nothing to do with God or heaven but quantum physics as in discarnate beings are in another reality where the electrons
are moving at a different speed around the protons and neutrons; than they are in this reality. Hence out of phase to us.


If you cannot find something, e.g. lost your car keys: are having difficulty making a decision; talk to yourself; or a guide; angel or God if you believe in one. I believe it is other aspects of our multidimensional being that give us answers:
I no longer run psychic development groups nor train would be witches. Up until the last couple of years I would be asked to run same and asked to keep them going because everyone enjoyed them so much. But the last couple of times i agreed to run a group they just “flopped”?

Another exercise to try:

Sit in front of a miror in a darkened room with a lit candle behind you:

you may burn incense if you wish:

In the mirror your face blanks out and then changes: I do not know what or why this is but you are welcome to observe if you are comfortable.

In the mirror “people” will build up behind your right or left shoulder                   ( reflection of)

You may call people in if you wish.

Spiritualists taught that calling people was unacceptable but if the ‘person’ you are calling doesn’t wish to appear they wont.

I communicate mostly by visual images: occasionally I “hear”: often concepts just pop into my head: so just note what is happening when or if you speak to people that “have passed over”

Have fun! it is a buzz when you succeed

 

Double Standards

12832433_10156574922800104_8324689832242503425_n

 

Sadly I belong to the most dangerous species on the planet!

If I could change reality, I would change this world.

To begin with the human population would be vastly less than it is. All the damage we humans have done to this planet and the ecology would be healed and all the species we have made extinct would be restored.

The human plague problem is easily solved by implementing zero population growth i.e. one child per couple but this solution is culturally unacceptable. Azimof wrote a novel called the Gods themselves The social satire was that science had to provide a solution for a problem because humans refused to apply the simple and obvious one!

I realized long ago I must work in the microcosm before I can influence the macrocosm. I have done; and still am, doing what I can to change things that I believe to be wrong. I have seen some changes for the better. But nowhere near enough.

I In the 1970’s I was in Animal Liberation; Greenpeace; Women’s Liberation. Greenpeace informed us way back then that we had destroyed this planet beyond repair.

In later years I joined “Trees for Life”. All these organisations were started by people who really care but humans apparently mess everything up and the organisations end up money-making bureaucracies; with mindless automatons just giving lip service to the original principles, thinking it trendy.

544206_563083323710745_452578452_n

I get told not to feed the magpies because I am stopping them from finding their own food. Well they eat mice but humans poison mice: The magpies eat worms but humans concrete their properties and bitumen the roads. So magpies have to kill other birds to eat; hence I feed then to prevent this.      A few nights ago a moth kept throwing itself against my kitchen window even though the curtains were closed. I turned off the light but the moth didn’t survive. It reminded me of when I was in primary school and we were learning about Albert Schweitzer. Our teacher told us that he used to be upset because the moths hurt themselves being attracted to lights. She found this strange. I feel the same. I must be strange!

When I was very young and found out where meat came from I refused to eat it. For this I received a bashing and my mother told me that I would end up in a mental institution for being strange. (Here’s that word again-“strange”?!). The same meal was put in front of me for breakfast, lunch and tea until I ate it.

 Carnivores tell me that the meat industry is nature. DER! There is no adrenaline rush from the hunt: No respect for the animal giving up its life: just queues of animals watching others being slaughtered!

I get emotional thinking of the scape goat. What an existence!

Factory farming is horrific. I just won’t start on that one!

Use of animals in laboratories even more horrifying!

Another thing that annoys me is “pest control”. Humans eradicate things they consider have reached plague proportion or are not indigenous.  Humans are way beyond plague proportions! White Anglo Saxon Protestants (WASPs) are certainly not indigenous to Australia or the United States of America!                                                                                                                     Locally they cull the Correllas (parrots) because they are annoying. Humans have removed almost all the trees these Correllas are able to feed from.

Insects are so important to the environment but humans just kill them because they can! I was given this quote but do not know the author. “If all the insects left the planet, the planet would die. If all the humans left the planet, the planet would thrive!”

If we deliberately ran over another person we would be up for murder but people are allowed to run over birds, animals and reptiles because they are on the road.  I just don’t get the arrogance of people thinking they are the only species that matters.

Humans are prosecuted for destroying property but destroying the environment is considered progress. Locally the real estate companies have destroyed heritage bushland by bulldozing or burning. They then sub divide and build houses so more of the most dangerous creatures on the planet can live here.

Movies like Avatar or The Day the Earth Stood Still are only preaching to the converted.

If anyone one has even read this far maybe you would join me in one or all of the affirmations that I do daily. Just from a psychological and sociological point of view the more people that believe in something, the better chance it has of happening.

Affirmation: “Humans show love and respect to all life forms especially their pets mother earth and one another” : “There is zero population growth of homo sapiens” “All humans are vegetarians”: “Factory farming and meat industry abolished; Laboratory use of animals abolished”

 

So mote it be and Namaste to planet Earth and Her life forms
