On a YouTube post commenting on Richard Carrier’s video presentation, I promised to post something very radical to my fundamental ideology. The fundamental truth is that I never believed Jesus Christ was the singular incarnate son of God here on Earth but an interesting experience presented a form of evidence to me that a spiritual entity representing Jesus may actually exist. Do I believe this spiritual representation of Jesus was an unequivocal representation of the whole ideology of Christ as God being truth and definite? No. But it is of some interesting value to ponder over the subject as everything should be given a reasonable consideration.
I was raised by Catholic parents; they were raised by Catholics. I however broke the mental and spiritual bond through my own insights and experiences as a clairvoyant since I was a child.
I am not a Christian for that faith is based on the fundamental idea that we were born into sin and Christ, the only begotten son of God, had been sacrificed so that our sins may be forgiven. This notion was always preposterous to me. In my mind, I understood God to be that which created everything and everything was/is vastly complex. The level of consciousness/ intelligence needed for such a trick would be beyond the human mind’s capacity to understand. With the Genesis story in mind, I could not accept the ideals suggesting a demeaning characteristic in God’s psyche to be so judgmental and unforgiving or to even create life with flawed character and then damn the design. This would suggest that God is flawed.
The bible as it has been preached always found a poetic justification for these ideas. But in my awareness, this was poetry not truth. Generations upon generations of people have accepted these ideals as truth because they had no other alternative thoughts at the time. Now we have open global communication and ideas are exchanged freely as air. Some of the communication is positive and enlightening, while other uncivilized communication is cantankerous, a form of smog, toxic and of no beneficial substance. Within these posts we share our inner values; some ideas help to navigate past old ideas that prove to be fictitious or detrimental to civilization, while other exchanges are examples of communities rigorously holding on to deeply rooted dogma. Depending on your current faith base you might find people like Richard Carrier’s and Bart Ehrman’s anti biblical prose offensive or you might find it refreshing. It will be interesting to see how long this cerebral tug of war will continue.
In my case, I could not accept the preaching about the ‘undeniable truth’ of Jesus as savior. Many scholars have presented enough evidence against the biblical text which cannot be legitimately brushed off as nonsensical debate.
If you read some of my other posts, you will know that I have experienced clairvoyance which has given me precognition of knowing one thing or another. Having experienced these things gave me a confidence to my awareness. I was certain Jesus was not God incarnate, I believed he was an entirely mythical entity. Richard Carrier among other scholars would wholeheartedly agree based on the historical proofs they have on the bible. One early morning, I was shocked when I had a dream and Jesus was in it. Although, I’ve also dreamed that I was an actual Smurf in a Smurf village; this would suggest that all dreams are merely a trivial expression of the subconscious mind. I must say that this ‘Jesus’ dream had an element which gave it more credence than my Smurf dream (although that dream may be saying more than we realize). Please remember that I have had dreams which later proved to reveal a truth or an event that would come to pass. My mother’s cancer, the Haiti connection….In the dream I was greeted by Jesus; the space was airy, sun filled and he was wearing a light cream colored robe. I instantly knew who he was, we knew each other in an intimate brotherly/spiritual kind of way. We immediately hugged each other and from him emanated a wonderful profound love but I did not have the same feeling with him as I’ve had with God (Will discuss in another post); he was special but not God special. He seemed all business at the time as if his time was limited and he only came to express something of great importance to me. He took a hold of my right hand and impressed a symbol on it. When I looked at my hand I saw this glowing symbol..
He then looked at me and said, “Maria, know what this means.” He was leaving now and I was devastated because I would miss him. It was a profound experience. You can’t even imagine. I was going to be apart from a dear friend, a spiritual brother. I woke up and was surprised to say the least. This was especially interesting to me because I have always dismissed the Jesus story as a myth. Now I was faced with this altering experience that made me dig deep into my well of consciousness to explain what that was all about. After the dream, I went on a mission to know the meaning of that symbol which was impressed on my hand. Although I am clairvoyant, I haven’t spent too much time researching symbols with their meanings, the various methods of divination or occult information. On occasion I would pick bits and pieces of information up but I was not a serious student of these subjects. I would accept an awareness if it came to me but I was too busy with real life pursuits to have the time to indulge in symbols or astrology.
Duh! One day I sat down and Googled symbols. When I came across “the symbol” it felt as if I was starring a ghost right in the face. That was it! Finally, I would know the meaning behind the message. The symbol was Mercury. Christian’s might say, “Oh, it is the sign of the devil, blah, blah, blah…” What Mercury really is, is a Greek representation for the planet Mercury, the closest and fastest moving planet to the sun. Mercury represents the Roman god Mercury as well as mythical god Hermes, the messenger of the gods. It contains the symbol of Venus which is the biological sign for woman. The horns or top crescent actually represented the winged hat of Hermes. According to astrology the association with Mercury is that its influence in a person’s chart relates to communication. It is said in astrology, when we meet an individual we are greeted with their Mercury influence. It represents thought processes, ideals, sensory information from the conscious and unconscious.
What is interesting about Mercury and how it connects to me is that my Mercury is in Pisces. All the things that I have claimed to be or have described about myself is clearly identified in my Mercurial influence. My birth date dictates my astrological influence. If you have read some of my other posts I talk about the interesting thing about my golden birthday being 03-30-03, I turned 30. All of this has meaning that I am still in the process of discovering.
In Celtic areas, Mercury was sometimes portrayed with three heads or faces, and at Tongeren, Belgium, a statuette of Mercury with three phalli was found, with the extra two protruding from his head and replacing his nose; this was probably because the number 3 was considered magical, making such statues good luck and fertility charms. Might there be a connection to my birth date, my being a female and the Mercury connection.
Below are listed attributes to the person with the Pisces (fish) influenced Mercury, you may find this information a bit more interesting once you’ve read through some of my other posts. What follows is a list of individuals with the Mercury in Pisces in their astrological chart. You might find some interesting people on that list.
Below is a long list of Mercury in Pisces attributes, consider that when you look at the list of people which have that chart element as well as understanding my claims.

24. Mercury in Pisces—Distinct capacity to ‘slip into’ the mind of another: ‘identificatory mind’.
25. Mercury in Pisces—A mind capable of standing aloof, of understanding from the perspective of one who is “in this world and yet not of this world”.

27. Mercury in Pisces—A mind adept at introducing buddhi to the realm of manas.
28. Mercury in Pisces—A mind which grasps the irreducible essence, unbaffled by appearances. This, of course, is the exact opposite of the Mercury in Pisces in the early days of evolution, when it is prey to every manner of glamor and illusion.)
How does this information prove anything about Jesus you may wonder? I will tell you this, I had no understanding of the symbol of Mercury, nor did I understand the “coincidental” astrological description of the characteristics I have for many years been claiming to have. This information came from a spiritual source (as Jesus imprinted me with the Mercury symbol) that had more awareness about me, my purpose and also of astrological meaning and coordination. “Seek and you shall find,” it has been said. My lesson from the Jesus dream suggests to me that Jesus is a spiritual entity, perhaps someone like the entity that has been described by Paul of Damascus but also by various cultures listed by various different names. I do not believe we go back to the notion of Jesus as the savior of all, the high holy, nor the bible is the sole source of truth. We should be humble with our attitudes, our ideology, not preach dogmatically and continue to be faithful in a more expansive way. Richard Carrier may have evidence that really conflicts with the long held ideology of Jesus and the bible. His purpose is to shake up our spiritual awareness so that we begin to be honest about not knowing everything. Does the fascinating evidence presented by the biblical scholars have the potential to dismantle our need for church? I don’t believe so for we are a tribal and herding species so we like to gather and enjoy life together. The time has come for people to acknowledge obvious truths, alter the churches’ old teaching ideals and become more engaging with alternative ways and concepts of God’s expressions to help part the veil of difference in ideology which has been a source of separation and hatred among people.
In my last post I talked about my interesting experience of communicating with a “psychic” because I desperately wanted to open my mind and discover the identity of my spiritual guide. After a crazy and eventful time, I was finally given a vision of my spirit guide. It was a black man wearing a loin cloth, his face was painted white, but the most fascinating thing I couldn’t help but noticing was the prominent third eye he had in the middle of his forehead. He was reclining on a large boulder/rock, he smiled and through clairaudience said to me, “My name is Nabu.” I quickly ran to the computer and researched the name Nabu and was shocked to find that Nabu is an ancient Babylonian god that inspired and is associated to Hermes/Mercury.
Of course I had no idea of this connection. I am hoping that this synchronistic and coincidental information may start your mental gears rolling and understanding that there is a spiritual reality that we have to begin seeing because the evidence is there if one can choreograph their thinking patterns. All these things are pieces of a really big puzzle that is emerging slowly into focus.
Here is site link with information on Nabu. http://www.bythegods.net/post/55218030880
Nabu’s time was a difficult-to-define expanse between 2,000 BCE and 500 CE.
Nabu, biblical Nebo (interestingly, I am of Polish descent and the word Nabu is very close and could also be read as Niebo, meaning heaven), major god in the Assyro-Babylonian pantheon. He was patron of the art of writing and a god of vegetation.
Goddesses associated with Nabu were Nana, a Sumerian deity; the Assyrian Nissaba; and the Akkadian Tashmetum, queen of Borsippa, stepdaughter of Marduk, and, as her abstract Akkadian name indicates, Lady of Hearing and of Favour. She was rarely invoked apart from her husband, Nabu, whose name means “speaking.” Thus, while Nabu speaks, Tashmetum listens.
I have claimed to have a message from God and my birth charting is helping me validate my claim. The message I speak of could be found in my post listed as the poem. Go ahead and read it and if you have it within you to be open to what I am saying then you should know that you will be reading a poem from God.
Here is a list of other individuals with the Mercury in Pisces . I think the individuals found on the list should show you the power of this Mercurial birth chart’s influence.
Mustafa Kemal Ataturk
Johann Sebastian Bach
Charles Pierre Baudelaire
Alexander Graham Bell
Otto von Bismarck
Elizabeth Barrett Browning
Anthony Van Dyck
Manly Palmer Hall
Victor Marie Hugo
Pierre Auguste Renoir
Be open to infinite possibilities, and yes, God is with you.
Maria, P.C., M.O.G.
Before you read this post, I just want to point out that my current preoccupation may sound like something a superficial celebrity hog would be interested in. That is not me at all (read my other posts to get to know me better). As a matter of fact, I love being private, according to my astrological chart, it presents my issue with privacy as an element of almost paranoia and something that I have to overcome in this life’s lesson. So that is what I am doing right now, trying to part with my desperate need for privacy and utilizing my bubbly extrovert personality for a spiritual quest of proving spirituality and God as a reality. My current plan may be a strange way to accomplish my objective but it’s all I have for now. Oh and yes, I realize the self description of needing privacy and having a bubbly extrovert personality sounds like an oxymoron but it is my truth. Most people that know me would never guess that I actually hate being in any spotlight. Only my husband and my children know my truth.
So I haven’t posted on my blog as I’ve been busy posting on other sites and setting myself up with a really wonderful producer who has worked with a superstar celebrity (this is related to my unique quest). Thank God he hasn’t found out what my age is or he would laugh his butt off and try to persuade me to sell some of my songs instead or recording them. Am I a Katy Perry or Adele, no, not at all, but I do have a really fun and interesting voice that is sufficiently good to be considered by a prominent producer. Besides, my voice seems to work perfectly with the songs I’ve written, so why the heck not.
I’ve mentioned that a flurry of creative juices started flowing following my experience with the supernatural God Poem event. Since that time, I’ve written some really fun and interesting music that appears to have the music industry’s interest. This year I decided I need to get cracking or my talent will be wasted but more importantly, my potential for getting a public footing. The industry can talk to the hand with the conformity they propagate on age discrimination, especially since the medical and scientific industries are promising technologies that will expand our longevity to the hundreds. If we are expected to commonly become centenarians then we are going to have to modify what our idea of what old is. So, a new artist starting out in the music industry currently has to be in the teens or early twenties. I’ll try my luck to see if we can change that long held standard.
My whole purpose for giving this project of mine a go is to place myself in a position of leverage in order to present my very real experiences with the supernatural. I’ve tried to contact scientists to consider taking tests and scanning my brain to do some legitimate research but my communication has been ignored. Fine. I’ll become a superstar and then someone may open a door and work with me and then take my stories seriously. Yes, this is my crazy plan.
I’ve talked about the very cool thing about astrological birth charts and how they can very accurately present characteristics of your being and also of your future. The interesting thing I’ve discovered is that there is an element to my chart that presents my future of being famous either now or posthumously. When I read this, I was suddenly frightened, not with the idea of dying but of becoming known after death; I was stricken with sadness because I would hate not to meet people that may be interested in meeting me and getting a firsthand experience of interacting with a total goof ball but when I talk about God and important subjects or morality, spirituality, faith… then the playtime face is switched off.
Just yesterday, I discovered a sign on my hand that represents the accumulation of wealth and fame; isn’t that interesting how a natal astrology chart can coincide with palmistry. Neat! Let’s get started. Do I really want fame, not at all but I do want to be taken seriously when I talk about my spiritual experiences and maybe fame might help that process. If I become wealthy you will never hear me becoming the sort like the “Bishop of Bling.” The more I have, the more people will get. It will be interesting to see how all of this plays out. There is one thing for certain, Nothing is going to happen until I roll up my sleeves and get cracking. So that is what I am up to these days. I found a fantastic music/entertainment lawyer; I have a fantastic producer that wants to work with me (I am always open to meeting and greeting others, if you know of anyone that might be of interest to me, please pass the word), I’ve been working out trying to get rid of the karmic weight gain (I talk about this in my post on karma); the scary thing I’m facing now is the contract issue. Several of the producers I’ve been in touch with heard the songs and suddenly started talking about wanting a cut of the royalties; I want to be fair because that is what I love to do but I don’t want to get nabbed in a complicated nightmare contract. I should just tell the producer, “Hey, read my blog.” Maybe he’d get the point of not trying to potentially pull a fast one on me. But, if I referred the producer to my blog, he would most likely drop communication with me like a hot pancake because this is weird and intense stuff I talk about here.
Anyhow, it’s fun when I come across the nifty astrological chart information and the palmistry tips but I mainly live my life like everybody else by just going with the flow and trusting my intuition. It’s fascinating to see a correlation of intuition and a unique spiritual expression like astrology or palmistry to confirm your personal will as being the one that has been already planned for as some of the unique prognostication methods reveal. Crazy religious zealots have demonized astrology and palmistry as evil and occult because the church said so, but as we have known, information has been tainted and concurrently misunderstood. These sorts of arts are actually, I believe, a miraculous expression of God as the all knowing, all powerful orchestrator of the universe and your destiny within it.
Friends, wish me luck!
Talk to you soon,
Maria, P.C., M. O. G.
O.K., so I’m a clairvoyant and I’ve received messages from God, sounds nutty and outrageous but if you’ve been reading my posts maybe you’re starting to get the impression that I am not pulling your leg and genuinely stand by my claims. Despite these holy moly types of experiences, I’m not immune to human interactions which seem to express primitive tendencies. Specifically, I’ve had some encounters with bitchy women, and boy, some of these confrontations have gotten ugly.
Chicks get possessive but the chick that gets possessive over my man better watch out because hell hath no fury like a woman scorned, especially this woman. Over the years, I’ve found many woman working in my husband’s health field evoking particularly arrogant characteristics. Remember, I’m a blonde, I may appear superficial but don’t judge a book by its cover. Unfortunately, many woman working for my husband have placed themselves in an antagonistic stance against me. Maybe I should have told them, “Hey, I’m clairvoyant, periodically God chit chats with me and if you cross me you’ll regret it.” I’d probably hear a background smirk of, “*&%$!* weirdo!” or, “Get the restraining jacket.” Yeah, whatever! At least no one could say that I didn’t warn them.
One particular woman who worked for my husband was a total sweetheart until a switch flipped. She started saying things that really got my attention and I began to suspect that maybe she was having an affair with my husband. Of course like every man, he vehemently denied anything ever happened and blamed her behavior on early menopause. One year at the belated office holiday party, the woman stood behind my husband and started to give him a back rub. Sadly, I had a martini that bulldozed my ability to clearly converse with her or beat the crap out of her, but I did get a few verbal jabs. My mind however was clear thinking and my mind spelled, WTF! What is going on here? This *%$#! is having an affair with his sleazy assistant. As soon as I jumped in his car after the party I exclaimed, “Get a lawyer, I want a divorce!” The flood gates opened and the shit hit the fan.
He claimed, “I didn’t even notice she was rubbing on my back, I swear….” This was all bullshit (at least that’s what I though his answers resembled at the time). On Monday, he told his assistant he felt what she did was inappropriate and he gave her a verbal warning. She stormed out of his office and didn’t come back that after noon. The next day she came back, walked into his office and said, “Do me a favor, I won’t talk to you about my personal business and you don’t talk to me about yours.” That statement basically confirmed to me that these two had some personal conversations and potentially more (he once again claimed that he had no idea what she was talking about; I do have to admit, if he was keeping a dark secret he wouldn’t have mentioned her statement to me). The details on what ensued are a bit foggy after a few years but it essentially came down to her asking him, “Are you firing me?” and he answered, “Yes!” She stormed out of his office swearing. Of course she applied for unemployment and he had to cover some of the costs because he fired her without giving her a written warning. I filled out some of the appeal forms and clearly expressed how she caused distress to our family with her unprofessional behavior.
Yeah, I was stressed! I wondered, how could God fix me up with a cheating loser (see my post on karma to know why I say God fixed me up with my husband)? I had a hard time believing him but then I thought back on the time when I experienced my own version of shameful behavior and recognized karma at play. The details on that is another story but for now I’ll just say that I realized, if anything ever happened between those two, I’d have to let it go.
I did let it go and that was a hard thing to do but it got easier as the weeks turned into months. I did have a nagging feeling; it was very strong and I couldn’t shake it. I felt that the woman was talking about me in a defamatory way, I felt she was laying it on thick and hard. First of all, everything she did put me through mental hell and I was pissed and now with the nagging feeling of her bad mouthing me, I was not at peace.
One day I said a prayer and expressed to the spirits and God, “Please help me with this feeling I am having and bring some clarity to me.” What happened next is synchronicity at play. That day I had a doctor’s appointment in the town my husband’s practice is in; I decided to pick up some dinner from a Greek restaurant I’ve never stopped at before. There was a twenty minute wait before the food was ready so I decided to stop at the dollar store next to the restaurant. When I entered, I overheard the woman behind the cash register talking about her cousin having a health issue that happened to be related to my husband’s specialty. After picking up a few gadgets, I headed for the register and began talking to the woman about the health subject I overheard her speaking of. I said, ” I know a little bit about this because that is my husband’s specialty.” She said, “Oh yeah, who’s your husband?” When I told her his name, her jaw dropped and she said, “Dr. B, Dr. B, damn that’s my nigger, that is my nigger!” Her lingo meant that she loved my husband as a person. The woman (I’ll call her Rose) was the shop owner and a pleasantly expressive African American. She was so much fun to talk to; I fell in love with her charm instantly. We were two kindred spirits that knew how to be jolly and expressive. We were having so much fun talking with each other, I ended up staying for an hour. I told Rose, “Hey, if Dr. B is your nigger then you are my cracker baby, cuz I love ya!” That was not a phrase she was familiar with and that left her with a perplexed look on her face; I hoped she figured it was meant to be an expression of admiration.
The conversation suddenly got interesting and my prayer was getting answered. Rose suddenly put two and two together and realized, this is Dr. B’s wife. She told me her husband had a general doctor and his new assistant was my husband’s former assistant who was fired. She told me that the woman started talking to her about me describing me as a jealous nut job that was paranoid. She (the former assistant) forgot to mention all the bull crap she did to piss me off and get me to react like a typical scorned wife. Anyhow, I knew the assistant wasn’t just talking about me to Rose but also to anyone who would listen. This is an act of defamation and I passed the message to my husband who called the other doctor to speak to his assistant and cease the slander or get a call from our lawyer. Of course the assistant denied it but Rose was willing to testify if the circumstance called for it.
Better than any legal action, I talked to the big kahuna (God); I was so angry, I finally said, “Get rid of her. I don’t care how you do it- just do it (I didn’t mean in a fatal way just in a creative non-threatening way).” This is why people should be very careful when they are naughty because God and karma will come and bite them.
After meeting Rose and having my intuition confirmed, I asked my super bud to get rid of the nuisance. At the very same time, the former assistant’s husband lost his job and found another position in Texas. Their whole family was relocating. Wow, how perfect! If you are silly enough to think the circumstance was just another coincidence go on and continue kidding yourself but this has not been the first time my request has materialized and I know it will not be the last.
Yes, asking God to “Get rid of her!” is kind of mean but I knew God was going to do what needed to be done to teach her a lesson. Don’t mess with the girl who loves God and does everything for God because you just won’t win. Ultimately, I can’t hold on to a grudge and I wish this woman all the best in Texas; we all have to overcome weaknesses and constantly have to remind ourselves to be good. If we are good and genuinely ask God to show something amazing, maybe, just maybe, we might get lucky enough to witness the mysterious magic of God and spirituality but that can only happen if we are open to the possibilities.
By the way, it is entirely possible that my husband really was innocent, the woman may never have done anything but rubbed his back and talked some smack, but she did rub his back and she should have apologized (it’s not as naughty as a lap dance but between co-workers it is definitely a line crosser). She should have been honest with herself and realized-I wouldn’t want some chick rubbing my husband’s back-and she certainly shouldn’t have talked negatively about me. Everyone who knows my husband and me think there is no chance what so ever of such a thing but only God knows what really happened; I think we are human and everyone can have a week moment. I’m so thrilled that it is all in the past now. I’m sharing the story because it serves as a clear example of karma and demonstrates that life works like an intricate domino assembly with every piece of the puzzle falling into its own unique place affecting the chain of events which follow.
Thanks for liking this post or following my blog. If it wasn’t for you, I would have to do more ironing ;)
Best to you all,
Maria P.C., M.O.G.
Honestly, the man I will be introducing you to should be considered one of the most inspirational people of the decade. As usual, it is no surprise that great things come in small packages. The inconspicuous man with a story that could be lost in one’s memory faster than a news blurb, happens to be someone really worth remembering. The little guy who barely makes five feet has a life story that should inspire you to know, “Yes you can!” Under any circumstance you should trust the power of faith in yourself without question.
Wael Farouk’s story made it to the front page of the Chicago Tribune this last Sunday, April 6, 2014, under the article titled, Slight of Hands, I would have titled the article, The Mini Man Who Could Play Rachmaninoff. Farouk was born with a condition of unusually short ligaments; this condition impairs his ability to make a fist, open a jar, even hold his shirt. As a child, he couldn’t hold a spoon and would drop his drinking cup. A therapist told his parents to give him something to strengthen his grip, so they gave him a rubber ball but he kept dropping it. When he turned three, his parents gave him a blue plastic toy piano. He would tap on the keys and within weeks he was able to imitate music he heard on T.V. and on the radio. By five, he began playing at the church services throughout Cairo.
Needless to say, after many naysayers vented their skepticism throughout the years, Farouk proved them wrong. The little guy who’s feet barely touch the piano pedals is playing some of the most technically challenging pieces ever composed by Rachmaninoff, who happened to be 6’6″ tall with hands that can span the piano keys an octave and a half. Even if Farouk would be a 6’2″ man, his level of performance would make him an impressive pianist but combined with his compact size and ligament condition, this makes Farouk a true gem, and an inspirational outlier.
The diminutive, soft spoken man with the passion of a virtuoso will be performing, “A Tribute to Rachmaninoff” this Thursday, April 10th, at the Rudolf Ganz Memorial Hall, Roosevelt University, 430 S. Michigan Ave. Seventh floor, 7:30 p.m. It’s a free concert, so there is no excuse not to come if you are in the Chicago area. Please do check out the wonderful article by JS Cohen (firstname.lastname@example.org and Twitter@higherednews) at http://www.chicagotribune.com/videogallery/79756260/Wael-Farouk-A-piano-virtuoso
Sadly, we are barraged by hogwash information every single day. One subject on a perpetual debate battle ground is the four letter word, diet. The subject is dear to my heart and mind because as a mother, I am a first-hand witness of the Dr. Jekyll Mr. Hyde effect dietary choices have on my kids, especially after eating something like cake, cookies, ice cream or a bag full of candy. Their behavior and focusing ability is unquestionably compromised after such indulgences, so I can easily tell how diet effects one’s thinking and I don’t find it difficult to rationalize how long term consumption of particular foods can optimize your health or undermine it. The slew of information in the pontifical dietary brew can incapacitate an individual from making shrewd decisions. I post my humble thoughts on this subject on several blogs, one of my favorites is rawfoodsos.com, by Denise Minger. She is such an entertaining, sprightly writer with a knack for expressing her ideas on diet and research methods. Her blog attracts some very interesting people and commentary.
On Minger’s blog, Richard, a follower/commentator, has a lot to say on the subject of foods rich in saturated fats as having negative effects in the body. His post can actually sound somewhat convincing with its technical jargon on the subject. Below is part of that post followed by my commentary (Richard’s remaining information will be found at the end of this post along with a link in case you are interested). I hope you consider reading the phenomenal books by the inspiring authors I mention, Dr. Matthias Rath, Why Animals Don’t Get Heart Attacks But People Do, and Dr. Perlmutter’s Grain Brain.
I hope you also share some light to the strengths of diet-heart, not just critique. I think this is one of the stories that your readers get wrong as well:
The closet to definitive types of studies supporting diet-heart are not observational, they comes from 4 independent lineages of research
1) Thousands of animal studies showing that saturated fat and dietary cholesterol accelerates atherosclerosis across virtually every type of vertebrate, and that they are the sine qua nons for the dietary modification of experimental atherosclerosis. This includes mammalian, avian and fish species- herbivores, omnivores and carnivores, and over one dozen different species of nonhuman primates. Again this cannot be attributed to the way that the animal was raised as when taking into consideration the amount of antioxidants and carotenoids as well as the lack of cholesterol, tropical plant fats high in lauric, myristic and palmitic acids will also accelerate atherosclerosis in animals to a similar degree as saturated animal fats.
My thought on the information presented:
In the digital world, it’s seems like forever since I last posted; I was on a much overdue sabbatical, skiing, meditating, going within. I was a bit nervous about not posting during that time but something was preventing me from doing so, as if my quill was broken or a door was shut to my mind. The universe was not allowing me to do anything but revive my senses.
In my Polish cultural background, there is a saying, “He who rushes brings merriment to the devil.” I have learned the truth to this phrase in a hard way. Nevertheless, it is a reminder to slow down. With our constantly being bombarded with information, emails, news…we definitely need to learn to quiet our minds, think, process what is important to us, and with patience and peace of mind, we should methodically set new goals for joy and progress. If we do not become mindful, we are setting ourselves up to becoming victims of someone’s persuasion, we can become ill, depressed or we risk not going with the flow of the universe and that always seems to get us into rough waters.
As with my grass post, I needed to trust in the universe to guide me, to let me feel when the timing was right to start posting again and get into the groove of things. I did go with the flow and thrillingly came across a wonderful post as my muse that should be a wonderful inspiration to you as well. If you are a follower of my blog, or happen to be visiting you are most likely interested in the subject or faith, spirituality, evidence of such things, global consciousness, coincidences, synchronicity….The post I came across today that is really neat is written by Lissa Rankin titled, 7 Stories That Will Change Your View of Human Intuition. She presents stories of people experiencing remarkable things such as the story of a neurologist with an amazing track record for success in surgery; he describes not starting a surgery until he would see a white light surrounding a patient’s head. Some people might run and never consider such a doctor seriously and that is a shame because his track record is the proof in the pudding. Rankin posts about people knowing things that should not have been known, such as the story of a mother not purchasing a house because her gut was telling her not to and then discovering that her child would have been attending the Sandy Hook Elementary School and would have been there on the day of the tragedy. It’s a fantastic post on http://www.care2.com and I highly recommend you check it out. I especially love it because these types of stories builds credence to my experiences.
The writer is in the process of writing a book and is inviting people with their amazing stories of knowing things that should not have been known. Of course I posted a comment with an invitation for people to see my site and for Rankin to consider using one of my stories in her book. If you haven’t seen all of my posts, go ahead check them out and please post one of your amazing stories of knowing something that shouldn’t have been know, an example of synchronicity or whatever you think might be relevant to our interests of spirituality, etc.
Here is a review of some of the posts I have made about things that I knew but under conventional wisdom should not have known: A dream of my mother revealed (symbolically) her having an invasive cancer, the post on karma when I knew my husbands co-worker did voodoo and was going to get cancer in a month as karmic debt, the synchronicity event which lead to knowing and being told (clairaudiently) four people died in a Chicago fire and there was going to be a fifth, how I unknowingly predicted the future teams in the 2013 World Series game in a fictional story written in August about the Boston Red Sox and St. Louis Cardinals as being in the 2013 World Series and how I was told (clairaudiently) a few weeks prior that the Red Sox team was going to win, a dream’s revelation combined with a clairaudient message revealing the Haiti event of 2010, how I received clairaudient assistance with a song which revealed a perfect bridge in an instant which I did not create but heard….
Oh my gosh, there is so much more that I will post so please keep visiting my site. I hope the information I share of my personal experiences and of any wonderful inspirational post links to other evidence based concepts supporting a new unconventional reality will help you in your life’s journey. Skeptics are useful in some respects but they can be blind when seeing and hearing of amazing examples of precognition and yet discounting such things as unrealistic; they are examples of people pursuing flawed science.
We are part of a remarkable existence with a fundamental supernatural/spiritual base that is slowly revealing itself to those willing to keep an open mind.

I have previously posted my clairaudiently received poem from God and will be re-posting it this Sunday on my birthday March 30. Please visit if you would like to see it.
These are great images representing the concept of Karma. Most people have some fantastic story of witnessing karma in action. I have a few I would like to share and I welcome your stories and would love to post them so my fantastic new friends following my blog will enjoy your amazing tales.
OK, we are told, “Never to judge a book by its cover nor a person by their skin.” Yet, time and time again people do just that, they judge and perhaps want to take action against the targeted person. Wise individuals head the lesson of karma. Foolishly, some discount such things as fictional fantasy with no proof in sight. It is also said, “It is better to be safe than sorry.”
In 1997, my then boyfriend, now husband and I were going on a trip; we announced that we were planning to elope. My boyfriend’s staff was judgmental of me, perhaps for their own idea of a valid reason; some might think I look like a superficial blonde. If you have been reading my blog you should know by now that nothing could be further from the truth. They wanted to take matters into their own hands; one specific young lady orchestrated the dark scheme they would play out. Before we left for our trip the young lady gave me a bag which contained our wedding present. When the bag reached my hands, I instantly had a knowing that she did voodoo on me. I didn’t even see the material inside. A thought came to me, that her karmic debt for this was that she was going to get cancer in a month. When we reached our destination, I opened the bag and pulled out the contents of their kindness. Inside was a black lingerie and a black square candle. It doesn’t take a genius to realize that black is not the typical color of a gift one gives for a wedding. Circles represent infinity and squares have ends, i.e. the square candle. One might say, “Maria you are digging and it may be a random thing.” It was not, I am not wrong about such things.
Nevertheless, the lady was diagnosed with leukemia a month later. After eighteen months or so she went into remission and stopped by on a Monday to say that she wanted to come back to work for my husband’s office. The Friday of that same week her cancer returned. Was this karma or coincidence?
This may sound like a terrifying story but it is one that reveals never to play with fire if one does not want to get burned. Karma is the fire.
What this girl did not know was that I engaged my husband from the beginning after I received a spiritual message from my spirit guide. I knew the man that is now my husband but did not have any romantic feelings towards him until I heard, “This will be your husband.” When the spiritual dimension speaks, I listen and I pursued him because after that moment I felt as if cupid himself shot me with his love arrow. It was instant, and from that moment I was head over heals in love with that man. The lady did something that should never been done by anyone; she tried to instill harm and darkness into a situation that was choreographed by God.
Years later, I visited another psychic and she immediately could tell that someone had done voodoo on me and she managed to describe the girl perfectly. The psychic told me about the voodoo even though I did’t even ask about it? Her perception was just another confirmation of my intuition. The psychic wanted to know if I wanted a cleansing and purification from the dark deed, I decided not to do anything because I trust in God’s actions in the mysterious behind the scenes methods of operation.
I myself earned some karmic debt after foolishly allowing myself to get arrogant for just one moment. After the birth of my second child, I began praying hard for guidance to the best methods of loosing weight. I was guided to the actions I needed to take to lose residual poundage. At 5’3″ I got down to a fantastic 105 lbs. I was thrilled but the joy was going to be short lived. One day I said, “Gosh, why don’t these people just stop eating junk and maybe they’ll lose weight.” My spirit guide said, “Oh, really.” I should have known better than to get cocky. In that moment, I knew something was going to occur that was going to make me gain all that weight back and then some. Shortly thereafter, stress from a building project flooded my system and I had lost control of my discipline. I started to drink alcohol again to relieve the stress and the weight came back like a raging bull. I learned my lesson and I have been praying for forgiveness; I have been praying in desperation for the lesson to stop because I learned just how difficult it can be to not have discipline without the good grace of God. Now the clouds are parting and I am gaining a foothold over the situation. I have learned a very important lesson, be humble and always be kind.
There is scientific proof of karma. As I have said many times for many years, science will reveal the truth of God and God’s true path for living. Religion is a tradition ingrained with emotion, but science is God’s design and it is without debate. If you drop an apple, it will fall. If it will not rain, there will be a drought. Science does not get into concepts such as curses by demons or cultural religious practices but it does reveal pure and verifiable truth. One observation one should make is in the mathematical proof of game theory by John Nash; this postulate has been used in computer design, programming, economics….What this mathematical principal reveals is that there is an intrinsic design in nature calling for a symbiotic equilibrium with a positive result occurring whenever an action is taken that positively serves you and the recipient of the action. This very much sounds like the golden rule and karma doesn’t it? Game theory is mathematical science and it is applicable to more than just scientific or economic applications; it applies to our personal daily actions.
Is there an equation for intelligence? Yes. It’s F = T ∇ Sτ. This is a formula presented by Alex Wissner-Gross on Ted talks. It further verifies my hypothesis. His formulaic presentation shows that optimal and infinite outcomes are always the final order of nature be it natural, man made machines (robotics) or artificial intelligence. Please view the fantastic presentation on Ted Talks. This is a scientific presentation, but it can be seen as a social and spiritual revelation to learning to work cooperatively for infinite positive outcomes.
So the next time you might want to give a dirty look, curse someone, get too preachy with your religious dogmas (yes, I do think science trumps religion), or if you are a fanatical religious zealot and want to chop a sinner’s head off, think twice, pause and ask yourself, does my plan concur with God’s game theory? If your plan does not then I would recommend searching for a better option because the evidence behind the 100% accuracy of results on tests analyzed by game theory and the intelligence formula support a definitive outcome which may not be in your favor if you don’t follow the rules. Ah, Karma.
Be wise, do wisely.

Today was the second time I’ve posted to a Rabbi, I keep trying to spread the news of designing a new universal faith, one that would encompass an amalgamation and celebration of many different religious traditions as a favorite pastimes but one that is founded by universal brotherhood. In this religion,there would be no segregation or separation only celebration. The prime foundation is acceptance of all with faith in God; this almost sounds like a Unitarian church but I’m not a huge fan of the Unitarian arrangement because it does not encourage faith in God, this is a selective choice. I support faith in God because I have experienced the reality of God, and therefore, I know it is not something one decides if one wants to believe in this, God is! One does not choose to believe in gravity, it is. Stories like the one I am going to re-post with a link to the original site is one that reveals why such an idealistic arrangement is essential if we want to enter the “Golden Age” the age of enlightenment.
This story was posted by Andrew Aguecheek on
About three years ago, one of my best friends volunteered to teach English in the Occupied Palestinian Territories. At the time I knew next to nothing about the Israel-Palestine conflict. Like most people in the West, I generally vaguely supported Israel with the caveat that they probably overreact to Palestinian Terrorism. Anyway, my friend came back with a lot of stories about what she had seen and heard. They were, frankly, shocking. Unbelievable. Tales of torture, killing, humiliation, and degradation, seemingly completely out of proportion with any idea of justice – if justice can ever validate such actions.
Being adversarial by inclination, I argued with her, trying to find reasonable explanations for some of the horrible things she was telling me about. I also started doing my own research; if what she and the pro-Palestinian lobby were saying was true, it seemed clear that the Western world had got something pretty deeply wrong. Eighteen months or so ago, she went back to the West Bank and once again returned with yet more stories. Our arguments become more intense, on a couple of occasions disintegrating into tearful fights (entirely my fault) and, about a year ago, one ended with her telling me I should just go and see it for myself.
So I have.
Lest it seem like I have gone to extremes to win an argument, I should point out that I am here for other reasons too. In the summer of last year I was made redundant from my job and I had already decided I would like to move into either politics or the charitable sector, for which I would need to gain some experience. One of many applications I made was to a twinning organisation, the Camden – Abu Dis Friendship Association, with whom I had taken some informal Arabic lessons earlier in the year. In fact I applied to volunteer with them in London – but when they called me back and offered a three-month placement in Abu Dis, how could I refuse?
I have now been here for nearly two months and in that time I have learnt a lot, far more than two and a half years of research and argument had taught me. I have also been tear-gassed twice, hidden from soldiers shooting rubber bullets in the street, made friends with former prisoners and torture victims and conversed with people from across the political spectrum. I now have dozens of stories that I want to tell you – to tell the world – because what is happening here is not right.
So I want to tell you my stories and the stories of the people I have met here, but I cannot put them in the context that I would like to. I can tell you about horrible things that Israel has, definitely, done. Instances of abuse that I have seen with my own eyes, instances that corroborate the thousands of reports of the most extensively documented humanitarian situation on Earth. What I cannot do is tell you the other side. I do not have time to start every story by telling you why this is happening, giving you a potted history of Zionism, Arab Nationalism, the aftermath of World War 2 and the holocaust. This means I will be open to accusations of bias, even of anti-semitism, for not putting Israel’s case.
So what should I do? Should I shrug my shoulders and say c’est le vie when a friend tells me they were imprisoned in a camp in the desert and tortured by soldiers? Should I keep quiet about the kids I teach who are actually used to tear gas being set off by their school? Should I keep to myself the stories of parents arrested in front of their children and held without charge for years? I don’t think I should. The context is not relevant. Whatever has happened, whatever has led up to this incredibly fucked up geopolitical ethno-religious situation does not matter. The fact is that people, innocent people, people who I now consider to be my friends are being hurt in ways that cannot, in my view, be justified. It does not matter why they are being hurt because it would still be wrong whatever the excuses are.
There is an odd tendency here to see the Occupation almost as a natural phenomenon. I imagine you would find a similar atmosphere in a town next to an active volcano. It’s just something you live with and most of the time, you don’t try to understand it unless you’re a specialist. But this is not a natural phenomenon, a force of nature that cannot be stopped by human endeavour. The unjustifiable violence, the abuse, the humiliations and the degradation that I now know to be fact, having seen them with my own eyes could stop tomorrow if those perpetrating it so chose. There would be consequences, but those would be the consequences of upholding moral standards, the price of doing the right thing.
Some things are not justifiable and must be condemned in the strongest possible terms. We can try to understand why they happen of course, and we can sympathise with those who often find themselves in an impossible position, but every time we try to find an excuse for not talking about something, for saying it will do some harm, we are justifying what must be unjustifiable.
What would I suggest? Israel stops abusing the Palestinians. What does this mean? It means stopping the beatings. Stopping the detention without trial. Stopping the killings. Stopping the torture. Stopping the humiliation. And it means stopping these things unconditionally, stopping them because they are simply and purely wrong.
This was my post to Rabbi Shraga Simmons at http://www.aish.com/jw/s/48892792.html today.
Ah, to be a Jew or not be a Jew? That is a dynamic question. To be humane or inhumane? That is a more profound question than the first. This is a story I found and I believe you should read it and share it and ask your followers, What should we do about such things? Does one evil justify another? How can we atone for our sins so we can find a universal brotherhood and please God?
by Andrew Aguecheek
I have posted to you before, I am the clairvoyant and I know God judges us not by the scripture we follow, nor the ceremonies we practice but by the goodness we live by universally.
Aguecheek’s story reveals a complex dilemma. The story deserves investigation, if what he says is true then how can the U.S. intervene? What founded the inhumane treatment of the Palestinians? He does not indulge in the subject, but he reports what he sees and it is tragic. Obviously, the eye for an eye approach is not a very good one; man is left blind with such a philosophy. With Aguecheek’s story, one may see a faulty Jewish religion as the root to such an evil. The Jews will justify their approach by rationalizing the Islamic faith as the root to the evils in the middle east. Christians will jump for joy and try to dazzle us with their enlightenment of the Messiah and his second eminent approach, while scholars like Bart Ehrman and Richard Carrier will tell us all, “We believe if faiths rooted in fiction.” All the religious bickering between the Muslims, Jews and Christians might get some desperate souls consider Scientology as their next religious adventure– know that membership is not free and the rules can get a bit crazy. Look at the members and their lifestyles; that should send anyone running for the hills. Faith should not cost a fortune. If a religious organization charges inordinate fees, most likely it is a scheme (you can just Google Scientology horror stories). How do we make sense of this and actually start to get progressive with solutions that work? Well, I hope I am slowly doing my part by sharing my insights.
Be wise, do wisely,
