Are There Links Between being Autism/Savant/Clairvoyant?

 

Are there links between Autism, being a Savant and being Clairvoyant?  Do Autistics communicate telepathically?  As humans we are also animals – and all other animals do.  As humans have we hidden, chosen to simply discard or disable access to our Upper Intelligence?  I am part of a growing group of people who are accessing that upper level, and I’m trying to find out how and why we can so I can share it with others.  Here is some information just for information’s sake – I’m throwing my PSI profile out there so you can see how my mind works – and maybe learn something about how your mind works as well.  We are all different, have different capabilities or skills on the PSI Spectrum, but the spectrum DOES exist, even though we are told over and over again that it doesn’t.  I know otherwise, and I think you do too.

Here’s how my brain works….It’s like there are two different parts of my brain.  One is the “day-to-day” part that drives around, goes to the grocery store, makes dinner for my family, keeps the life running.  I don’t want it to sound like autopilot, because I do truly get so much joy from doing those things, being with people, my family and having “real life” experiences.  So that is the “regular” part.  The other part is an open channel – the best way I can describe it is
like a program running in a computer in the background.  It’s not being accessed right now, but it’s there and it’s running.  This channel – I see mine as a funnel  – that has access to tons of information, which is moving by in a stream at all times.  And this is no tiny stream, it’s a river of information moving around all of us ALL of the time.  Everything we do, have done, or will do contributes to it.  Most of it means nothing to me, but my brain somehow recognizes some of it as important and grabs it, and stores it for later.  The best way I can describe it is a sudden thought, picture, word or little movie – seemingly random from out of the blue will pop into my head, I used to think, huh, that’s weird and dismiss it.  Now I know my brain/mind didn’t dismiss it, throw it back into the stream like a fish, my brain/mind banked it, filed it away, stored it somewhere.  This is happening at all times.  I have no control over what is kept and what is thrown back.  I began to notice that I would have a conversation later that day, or week, or two weeks later, that the information “fit with” or belonged to, and something that had been a passing blip gets pulled back up for that person, I share it, they take it and we part.  Sometimes it is a building block to a much bigger picture.  Sometimes, I never see them again.  Now, because I’ve been able to recognize this outside information as something other than my own, especially when it starts to build a pattern or “story” for lack of a better word, it’s like my brain/mind knows this and creates a file, with a blank space on the tab.  Since I am working professionally as a channel I can see things coming together now and will usually get a new appointment within the day or next two days, and I know the information is for that person.  All the information coming in for them goes into their file.  Since I’m working with more than one client at a time, my brain somehow knows which file the information goes into.  When I meet with them, the sound of their voice is what pulls and opens the file.  Then we go from there.

Autism scale – I’ve never had much of an interest in Autism, until beginning to work with Dr. Diane Powell, a neuroscientist who has worked with savants and is currently doing research around autistic children and telepathy.  She’s been on my radio show twice, the last time we discussed her research connecting Autism and telepathy – how non verbal children communicate with their parents or caregivers by literally “seeing” their minds.  The word “reading” isn’t appropriate here.  When I think of someone “reading” someone else’s mind – I imagine all of a person’s thoughts being laid out.  “Seeing” someone’s mind only makes the relevant information available, and nothing else.  So the fears that people have about “Oh my God!  I don’t want someone to be able to read my thoughts!!”  are completely unfounded here.  What is made available – by the person whose mind is being “seen” and they do make the information available – think of it this way, it’s like a phone conversation – when you are talking with a friend, you don’t just randomly start spewing out all the information in your brain!  You stick to the topic at hand.  This is a similar exchange.  The “seer” extends, the “giver” makes the relevant piece of information available.  I’ll talk about that a little more later in the post.

You can hear that interview with Dr. Powell here – File name: Dr.DianePowell20141211.

I use the word “see” because during the show I began to see – like a movie in my mind – how the child we were discussing picked up the information from her therapist – I saw – it’s actually kind of comical when I go to describe it – it looks like a “ghost hand” (as if in an old cartoon) comes up and out of the child’s head, reaches over and “plucks” the information from the therapists head, and pulls it back into her own.  We talk about this on the show, you can hear me describing it as I’m seeing it.

What it’s like for Autistic Kids

I know and have always known – that Autistic kids are not living on our level.  The tragedy is that we try to bring them down to it.  And for them, that’s amazingly painful.  Literally.  I’ll talk about that later too.  These children have access to a much higher level of information, have a brilliant range of understanding and processing, but not at our level.  We should not be trying to fit them into our world, we should be trying to understand theirs.  Here is something else I know – Autism is here to stay.  Gradually within a few generations, all humans – not that you can call it that anymore – will be Autistic.  A lot of changes are coming, but that’s another post.   But the simple truth is Autism is just a higher form of processing and communicating.

After the show Diane and I stayed on the phone and talked about Autism, her work and her subject.  As we spoke, something amazing happened.  I began to talk about the language Autistics use and how trying to force them to use ours is incorrect.  Picture this: It’s like trying to teach a highly functioning and intelligent adult latin, hieroglyphics – or any dead language – while beating them amongst the face and head.  There are two thoughts there –

Why the hell do I need to know this when I already have this perfectly wonderful language to communicate?? and God, this hurts!

This is literally what it feels like to an autistic person to learn our language, they don’t have a need for it, and it hurts.  (as I  read back over this I get the visual of an adult dragging a child’s face along a rough concrete sidewalk, as the child wails and protests.  Again, this is what it feels like to them.  Why would we continue to do this?  – The correct approach is perhaps more fearful for us – opening our own minds to receive what THEY have to offer US.)   So – After the show during our conversation when I was speaking with Dr. Powell about her young subject I began to see a stream of colored shapes, imposed over a colored background.  These shapes were not just 3 dimensional, but…fuller, richer.  And there were no edges to the shapes, but there were definite shapes.  The first one was a red sphere (for the visual) set on a red/orange background.  It kind of bounced by – as if moving through a frame – from right to left.  I didn’t see them all at once, like we see sentences on a page, I saw them one at a time.  The sphere was rotating and…pulsing, all the while changing color in sync with the background.  As that shape moved off to the left, a new shape came into view, I kid you not, it looked like a puffy cheeto – but S shaped.  This one was purple/indigo, set on a purple background.  As it moved – again from right to left – a distinct yellow color emerged on its right side, and moved over and across it.  While I was seeing the shapes I was describing them to Diane.  She stopped me and the colored images ceased.  It was like I was “snapped” back into reality.  Which was too bad, in addition to being beautiful, these shapes, these two images brought with them not a picture in my head – like if you say the word cat – I know what a cat is and can see it in my head, it was nothing like that.  these images, letters, words or whatever they were – this “snapshot” of autistic language – brought with it no associative pictures in my head, nothing like that, but an all-encompassing sense of peace. That’s the only way I can describe it.  But Dr. Powell had stopped me to ask if I had done any research on Autism, was I reciting something I had read?  At first I didn’t understand the question.  When I got what she was saying I answered honestly “no”.  She went on to tell me that what I was describing was how a musical savant that is verbal (I don’t remember his name) – when he hears music he also sees it.  What I was describing was what he describes when he sees music.   After that I understood how autistics communicate with their own beautiful language, and how – for lack of a better feeling – UGLY ours is to them.  The visual I get is pulling someone down off of a high beautiful mountain with a lovely view of a fantastic sunset, and dragging them down into a dark and sopping wet muddy valley to trudge through the knee-deep mud.  Anguish is the word I hear.  After that conversation with Diane and seeing the language I began to have a deep headache on both sides of my head, as if someone put a vice straight down around my temples from above and tightened it.  This was odd, as most headaches I have begun behind one of my eyes and expand outwards.  This was very different.  I began to understand – to be shown – this is the pain autistics feel after working on our level.  That headache lasted until I went out and was around other people, somehow that “shook it off”.  But I got the message, loud and clear.  Again, it’s not to pull them into and integrate them into our world, but to get a better understanding of theirs.  I’ll go into this more later in another post.

What the Channel looks like working with clients

So working with clients is kind of like what I described in the earlier part – its a mix of that banked information that’s been coming in and stored, and that “plucking” of information that is somehow offered by the client.  Earlier this year I became familiar with accessing the Akashic Records, (which unknowingly I had already been doing) and that created a series of “downloads” that has increased the capacity of how I work.  Now I am able to look back into somebody’s past – and be taken to an age where something traumatized or splintered their thought processing.  Where an “incorrect” thought was placed – the way it looks to me is that the person is moving along a path just fine, the correct path, but then something happens to jar them and they start moving again, but on a slightly different, incorrect path.  Many times this is something so seemingly small, a punishment, a scolding, seeing someone the person loves doing something “wrong” in their eyes…anyway, I can see that point, take the person back to it, show it to them as they saw it, and help them to understand that whatever took place was simply incorrect.  Blame, judgement, pain and anger are removed at that point, and at the same time repeated patterns begin to unravel like a thread.  At the same time something amazing happens, as the person begins to heal, so does the individual that placed the incorrect thought, and the situation, even if they have already passed.  All of these things are happening at once, and are just channeled through me, I’m the conduit.  It appears this healing comes from the same, or at least a similar place that the Autistic Language does.  It comes from that stream I was talking about earlier, what I think Einstein was referencing when talking about  “the Ethers” (or Aether – from the greek word meaning “upper air” or “pure, fresh air”.  It’s all the same thing.  It encompasses peace, understanding, forgiveness.  I can’t explain it, and I don’t need to.  I just see it do it’s job and it’s done.  I don’t understand yet what the link is between the autistic Language and how my brain/mind works…but there is one.  This is what got me thinking – am I a savant?    When I was working with a director a while back he flew in from NY for a week to spend time with me and some other members of TPSC.  We were telling him we were all just normal people and after spending a couple of hours with me he said, “You are not normal.  You are far from normal.  None of you guys are normal!”  It was like he couldn’t even believe that we thought that.  At first I felt a little taken aback, but then he went on to say, “None of you have regular jobs.  None of you do things the way “normal” people do things.  Do you really see yourself as normal?”  That’s when I really started to think about that – not being normal.  And I know I’m not the only one.  I am a functioning person, but only on my own terms.  I don’t say this to sound like an elitist, quite the opposite, like the autistic or asperger kids – I just can’t take the whole world sometimes, my limits when it comes to “real life” are short.  Now that I am an adult I know this.  Here are a few of my own characteristics so you can see what I’m talking about.  I know little about Autism, so I don’t know if these match, but I do know a little about savants – fascinated, I started to read a little but then stopped, I don’t like to be front loaded on a topic by reading about it, I prefer for the information to just come naturally via the channel.  But here are some characteristics that I know coincide with or are because of…what I am.

I have little to no long-term or short-term memory.

Dyslexic / I transpose the last two numbers in sequences, but only occasionally.  I actually read the numbers backwards, not simply just writing them backwards.  Math is a foreign language – literally.  I have no understanding of even the most basic equation past simple adding and subtracting, multiplication, division.

Ridiculously high sensitivity to sound, especially sudden noise – here’s a real life example: the sound of a public toilet flushing – (like in a grocery store bathroom or movie theater )is excruciating to me.  Additionally I can hear/feel a cell phone vibrate three rooms away with the doors closed.

High sensitivity to “compact” electricity – Best Buy or the electronics department at Target are two places I stay away from.

Having more than one thing “playing” at once is excruciating to me.  Example: TV on in one room, son watching/listening to YouTube  in an adjoining room, while a conversation is going on all at the same time.  This creates extreme agitation in me and I have to leave immediately.

Sensory issues – example: condensation on a water glass makes my skin crawl even to see it.  Touching it, no way!

I can’t be around a lot of people at a time. Period!

Absolutely no patience for small talk or people who talk only about themselves or celebrities.  Can’t watch the news.  Highly empathic.

High sensitivity to light – I keep our house dark – much to the chagrin of my husband.

I’m not saying having these sensitivities makes me a savant.  But I want to know more about my brain/mind, what this is I have, working with others that have it and uncovering information.  I know a lot of BIG changes are coming, right around the corner, I have formed a team of people who have similar PSI characteristics, with variations, we are all on the PSI-Spectrum and working together increases our skills, we pick up each other’s skills and all of them are enhanced when we are together or connected in conversation.  We run what we pick up by each other, for clarification, and the information is all the same.  These people who are part of the team are all over the country and reaching now into the UK.  Whatever you want to call it – this Upper Level, Extended Intelligence, PSI-MIND, it does exist.  There are those of us that have been accessing it for a long time, and it is interwoven into our everyday lives.  This is accessible to everyone, not just a select few.  The people I  work with see these skills as a muscle to be developed, not as “gifts” but skills.  How they come about is another post.  This one has already gotten too long.

The last thing I need to address is skeptics.  I don’t care about skeptics.  I know how my mind works.  I want to know MORE about why it works the way it does, it’s that simple.  I know everyone has the capacity to use their minds in the way I do, if they choose to.  And if not, that’s ok.

Here’s the problem I have with skeptics.  You don’t have to believe me.  But don’t keep other people from accessing their own upper intelligence by ridiculing, shaming and frightening them into feeling stupid for even wanting to believe these things exist.  This is like the reverse of the story of the emperor’s clothes – there are those of us that not only see but embrace the beautiful rich fabrics, not on the emperor, but all around us.  We are living our lives with an extended mind, swimming in that stream.  If you choose not to, or believe (incorrectly) that you can’t, well that’s on you.  But don’t put it on me, don’t put it on anyone else.  This experience exists, it’s getting bigger and stronger.  You can live your life “disabling” that mind.  I will not.  And additionally I will tell you, you don’t have to.

 

 

Creating Catalysts – Psi-Mind, Evolution and Accessing Upper Intelligence

It’s been a while and again, of course TPSC has undergone a change, but it’s part of a long line of evolution…

we’ve gone from social – raising the flag to draw those first key individuals, all of whom have moved on, or mostly moved on….worked on the beginnings of a TV show – which showed me I can’t conform to be something I’m not, I don’t fit into a box.  When we were doing that I was worried all the time, is this what a network would want?  Am I doing this the right way?  Is this going to be put together in a way that represents what I’m truly trying to convey?  So even though the show didn’t materialize – it did it’s job.  It showed me I have to be exactly who I am and not worry about what other people think.

During that time TPSC also became a radio show – we are broadcast every Thursday evening at 5:00pm central time on www.paramaniaradio.com  – if you miss a show or would like to go back and listen to old shows TPSC is available on demand here: http://paramaniaradio.com/On-Demand.php?ondemanddir=Traveling%20Psychic%20Supper%20Club – there are currently 53 shows available – and you can listen on the site or download them.  The radio show broadened the reach, and it brought in yet more amazing minds who continue on with me today.  Others that are living this life, utilizing the skills we all have available to us.  I value and reach out to these minds on a regular basis, check in and continue to evaluate my own growth.  For these people and relationships I am eternally grateful.

paramania-logo

And the evolution has continued.  Now TPSC is a focused development and study group, meeting again in Austin, Texas.  We are monthly again, not around food, but around information.  In my own personal evolution I have become a researcher and am
daily gaining knowledge and information about that which exists outside of us.  Information that our Psi-mind can access.  In the future this blog will be used as a source to store information about my research, as a place to reach others that are doing similar research, even in fringe areas, and of course to connect with readers and share information.  TPSC is no longer a social group, that time has past.  We have always been about development, but now the time has come to push all…for lack of a better word – bullshit aside.  It’s time to get down to it.  There is work to be done.  Another thing:  I’m not adding pretty pictures, I don’t care about SEO.  If you find this page, it’s because you were meant to be here.  I’m not using internet tricks to draw traffic to this page.

And to the skeptics I say:  Just because you – you yourself personally, or who you represent  – don’t see something doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist.  You can say all you want about me, fellow researchers, fellow Psi-minded, it doesn’t matter.  There are those of us already accessing and living full and growing lives utilizing our Psi skills.  Your fear and need to admonish us only keeps other people away and closed off from their ingrained God given Upper Intelligence.  Many people are living rich full lives, where there is no division between the Psi-mind and the “human” mind.  We are here, we are accessing what exists and is available to all of us.  Shame on you for keeping people in the dark.  There is a tipping point coming.  Fear can hide what exists for only so long.  And I extend an invitation:  Join us any time.  🙂

Cell Block Psychic, PAT CAN HELP and September Dinner is HERE

Cell Block Psychic                  Victim’s Advocate                    Helping others – what can you do?

Connections made while watching show            This is hard enough as it IS (Possible Rant to follow)

the BAM the slap in the face comments everywhere, what a surprise.           If you don’t like it, don’t watch it.

We are doing what we can with what we’ve got, and we aren’t living in houses of GOLD (for me – far from it.)

_____________________________________________________________________________________

These are some thoughts I wrote down way back on July 2, after watching an episode of Cell Block Psychic so I wouldn’t forget.  I had never seen it before, and actually have not seen it since.  Flipping through the guide, I landed on a show with an interesting, catchy name – Cell Block Psychic.  (She wears an overcoat like this in a lot of the promo stuff…gotta love reality TV.  I doubt this is her normal everyday look…) Cell Block Psychic is how I came to meet Pat Pulley and her son, Jim.

I saw that there were a few shows playing in a row, so I taped them all, 3 total, to watch later.  I think this is going to end up being a series of posts around this very important day, so I hope you will check back later to keep up with what is going on around it, because something amazing began with watching this show – and it’s ongoing and unfolding still today.  So I’m going to pull from the list above and talk about a couple of things, then I’ll visit it again later, because like I said, this is the beginning, of something bigger.  Thank you for reading, and in turn becoming a part of it too.  At the bottom of this post, and in upcoming posts there will be an even bigger way to participate – if you choose to.

Oh and BTW this month’s diner has been set for September 17 at Buenos Aires Cafe –

A lot has been going on, so there is A LOT TO TALK ABOUT! If you are local – Austin – Join us!

 – you can make reservations HERE:

  https://travelingpsychicsupperclub.com/make-a-reservation/

OK so back to Cell Block Psychic.  In the show a psychic medium (Vickie Monroe – www.vickiemonroe.com) does something people apparently  (judging from comments about the show on the internet) either love or hate.  She helps families of victims of violent crimes heal from the experience by connecting with their loved ones – the ones killed, but also by connecting with their attackers or killers – who are in prison.  – /So I’m going to step in here for a quick second and share my personal thoughts based on my own experience./ – THIS IS NEVER EASY TO DO.  For anyone who watches this show – and I know the intention behind it is one of love – the show isn’t sensationalized really, and the producers do a pretty good job of just telling the story, they aren’t trying to take advantage of anyone’s grief or pain, it’s actually trying to do the opposite.  For some reason a lot of people attacked the show, which I think is too bad.  I mean seriously, people are going into spaces taunting spirits and stirring up energy – just for ratings.

YES, I am looking at YOU Zach/Ghost Hunters…this frustrates me to no end.  That’s another post entirely.)

OK enough of that.

 Dealing with people who you know have harmed someone, is scary.  Going to a prison to interview someone – in a situation where you have no idea of what will happen or be said, I imagine, is terrifying.  Even in the controlled environment of a set, an inmate is a volatile element of the equation.  In my CASA work, I’ve had to sit across from people who I know have done terrible, unspeakable things.  AND CARRY ON A NORMAL CONVERSATION.  Being clairvoyant on top of it, I get another whole layer of the story.  So if you think this is easy, or fun, it’s not.  It’s just something that we are led to do, and something that must be done so that on some level healing can occur.  In Vickie’s case, Yes, there are cameras there, yes this is creating a show for – ultimately – ratings and entertainment.  But if you can help people along the way, and in such a deep and healing way…why should that be attacked?  I don’t know Vickie Monroe, but I can tell you – she was picking up the things she said she was, because while watching the show, I was also picking up on them – and other stuff, too.  And one story out of the three really caught my attention, and an individual stood out to me, and he wasn’t even one of the main characters, but an advocate brought in for additional information about batterers.  His name is Jim Pulley.

Jim’s mother was shot and killed by her abuser – her second husband, NOT Jim’s father.  They told a portion of her story on the show.   And Jim wrote a book about the experience – an amazing book that you can find here:  http://www.amazon.com/s?ie=UTF8&page=1&rh=n%3A283155%2Cp_27%3AJim%20B%20Pulley

 

I want to say a couple of things about Jim’s book.  When he handed it to me I knew it was something special.  It’s an interesting, unusual portrayal of abuse and murder from a peripheral viewpoint, but also from within the inner circle of the victim.  There are components that make the book fascinating on many levels.  There are references to Pat’s personal journals, words written in here own words, as well as actual police reports written by officers involved in the case.  If you are interested in forensics, CSI, or how police lead their investigations then this is a great read.  Jim does an amazing job of compiling all of this, as well as his own personal experience into a book that is an exciting, but also heartbreaking.  Especially for me because I know him, and his mom.  He is a wonderful, loving, giving, and in spite of his ordeal, happy man.  A man who loved his mother so much that he was able to wade through the waves of pain to tell her story.  And not only to tell her story and leave it at that.  No, not Jim.  He takes it to the next level.  He speaks to groups, individuals, anyone who needs to hear the message.  And the message is that EVERYONE MATTERS.  Everyone is loved by someone, and we all need each other.  That’s what I got from his book.  You can find out more about Jim and Pat Pulley at www.patcanhelp.com

If you have ever experienced abuse, know someone who has, or want to help someone avoid it in the future (I finished it and am giving it to both my 16 year old daughter and 13 year old son to read) – then pick up this book.  And don’t just read it, pass it along.

Initially, when watching the show I didn’t know why Jim stood out to me.  But he did.

And I heard, in my head, “You need to meet that guy.”  And I knew that I would.  Something else happened that day, and you can believe it or not, but it happened.  I met the amazing Pat Pulley too,  Jim’s mother who had been battered and killed by her abuser.

 

If you have been a victim of abuse and want to share your story, I am compiling stories that will be included in a book I am writing about the levels of abuse, what creates a victim, how to help loved ones that are being victimized and why some people remain victims and some do not.  I am asking people to share their stories so others may read them and connect – and understand they are not alone.  only first names and ages will be used, or you may ask to share anonymously.  Please, if you feel led to, or feel your story could help someone else, I invite you to send it in the form below.  Please if you know of someone who could benefit from sharing their story, feel free to pass this post along to anyone you like.  Sometimes even sharing, just getting it out there, even if it isn’t to be used in the book – helps.

One Note:  Please do not share stories from the media, or stories that are hearsay.  I ask is that you share only stories you or a direct loved one have experienced.  Anyone who sends a story agrees to and understands that they may be used in this publication, unless expressly requested otherwise.  Thank you, and let’s see what we can do together, to heal, connect strengthen and share.

Upcoming Events – Driskill Brunch and Psychic Development Tour

There’s lots going on lately, and I guess this post is a little late to “market” or “publicize”my table at the Body Mind Spirit Expo – since it’s TOMORROW…but I don’t care, I wanted to let everyone know about some cool upcoming TPSC events.  Oh yea, and I’m going to be at the BMSE this weekend, Saturday and Sunday – I’ve got a table at booth 3, so if you are there drop by and say Hi, I’m doing tarot and intuitive readings, if I can remember to I’ll take lots of pics and post them here.  🙂

It’s time to visit the Driskill again, I get tired of doing “Psychic Events” only around Halloween.  Psychic stuff isn’t scary, and for me this happens all the time, so I wanted to create something cool, special and fun – so I’m doing a Brunch and Psychic Development Tour in August, back to back since the tours are small – there’s room for 10 on each day.

I’m working on pinning down the date for the September dinner, which is going to be at the Buenos Aires Cafe on 6th.  It’s on the reservations page already, and I’ll update it once I’ve got the date set.  Some other events are in the works, I’m partnering with Austin artist Tina Schweiger – whose studio at Austin Artpost is a work of art in itself.

This is Tina – we met on last year’s East Austin Studio Tour…you can check out her work here:  www.tinaschweiger.com

I’ll keep you posted on that….for now – it’s time for chow mein.

Jon Brooks Premonition, Some Cool Marketing and World Cup 2014 Futbol = LOVE

john-brooks-afp_2944263b

For anyone who doesn’t know, I’m a huge Futbol/Soccer Fan.  I’ll watch any game, anywhere.  For years I coached my son, who has gone on to play competitively, outgrowing my coaching skills by far.  So we’ve been looking forward to World Cup 2014 for a long time, and now it’s here.  Soccer holds a special place in our hearts here in the Antich Household…but when psychic stuff gets tied in with soccer –  well I can just about lose my mind.  Check it out.

There’ve been some great games, great goals, and  for anyone who hasn’t heard, an amazing premonition by American player Jon Brooks.  Here’s the goal – and if you listen close you can hear the commentator say,

“HE COULDN’T HAVE EVEN DREMPT IT.”


But actually, he did.  He drempt it two days earlier.

And here’s what makes this story even more incredible and unbelievable.  Brooks is a SUB.  So, the probability of him even playing was very very slim.  He  ONLY went in because someone got hurt.

He is the FIRST SUB EVER IN US HISTORY TO SCORE A GOAL.  FIRST SUB EVER TO SCORE A GOAL.  IN US HISTORY.  Do you understand what I am saying??!  He drempt it was 88th minute…and scored in the 86th.

THAT IS AMAZING.  I AM LOVING THIS BEAUTIFUL GAME.  Oh and if you haven’t seen it, here is some marketing I can actually get behind, nice job Coca Cola.  🙂

 This year we aren’t different, we compete, we root, we share, we scream and we cry,

We LOVE the Beautiful Game.

 

Change starts with the little man…

Yesterday Kelly and I did a show with Maria Benning, who does amazing work with the Akashic Records.  It was a super fun show for me, and on top of that, it reiterated some information that has been coming together for a while, and Maria is the perfect voice to share it, she’s down to earth, doesn’t feel (or present) that she is some super wise teacher – you can check her out here:   http://mariabenning.com/and here http://earthsrecord.com/

In short, the messages I keep getting are this: we all have access to the greatness inside of us – if we can just chose to Accept, Acknowledge and ACT.

These words have been coming to me for years, since I wrote my kids program, also, funny enough, based on 3 vowels –

Intuition, Indicators and Instincts.  You can read about that work here: www.iprojectconfidence.com

So anyway, while I was writing that program, I also kept going back to the 3 A’s – Accept, Acknowledge and ACT.  Our interview with Maria brought me back to that again…  If you would like to hear the show on demand it’s available here:

It’s really worth a listen, because we talked a LOT about what WE can do to create change.  And it’s not what you think.  Change isn’t started with guys in suits up in Washington, or princes in palaces.  It’s started with US.  Each of us.  The small guy, the little guy.  The SIMPLE person, who just makes a different choice, not to fight.  Not to hate.  Not to ARGUE ENDLESSLY about things that DON’T MATTER!!  All these earthly things we bicker about, dig at each other about, if we could just do less of THAT, even hold our tongues ONE TIME – that’s a start.

Nope, not the “BIG WIGS” up on Capitol Hill, but the people tending their own small gardens, the farmers in the fields, just doing what they can to provide for their families, with their hands in the soil, toiling for an honest return in an UNHONEST market….These are the changemakers.

Not the Professional Athletes, (Sorry Labron) but the teachers, who go to school and hug their kids, and try to make a difference, tired from Testing, swimming against the current to make a difference.

The parents that are doing what they can with what they’ve got, WE ARE THE CHANGE MAKERS.  So this post is for all of us – let’s add a little love in today, give an extra hug, an extra smile, and make a small difference, it’s worth so much more than any of us know.  I am reminded AGAIN of a favorite poem of mine, spoken by a favorite saint, Saint Francis of Assisi.

I borrowed this lovely image from a website, that also had this post….not a coincidence, here is the site

named Teacher as Transformer – which shared this poem as well, which it taken from the full post which you can find here: http://ivonprefontaine.com/category/progressive-education/

here is an excerpt from the post, and a VERY real connection – a quote by Margaret Mead that blew me away, thank you GOD – Universe – SOURCE for leading me here today.  What a wonderful validation…

This need for real, flexible, and sustainable change reminded me of Margaret Mead: “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.”

I found this beautiful poem by Brazilian poet Rubin Alves. He spoke of hope, but not hope as a soft and gentle aspect of life, but hope matched with suffering and resiliency which gives rise change and the hoped. I particularly enjoyed: “So let us plant dates/even though we who plant them will never eat them./We must live by the love of what we will never see.”

What is hope?
It is the pre-sentiment that imagination
is more real and reality is less real than it looks.
It is the hunch that the overwhelming brutality
of facts that oppress and repress us
is not the last word.
It is the suspicion that reality is more complex
than the realists want us to believe.
That the frontiers of the possible are not
determined by the limits of the actual;
and in a miraculous and unexplained way
life is opening up creative events
which will open the way to freedom and resurrection –
but the two – suffering and hope
must live from each other.
Suffering without hope produces resentment and despair.
But, hope without suffering creates illusions, naïveté
and drunkenness.
So let us plant dates
even though we who plant them will never eat them.
We must live by the love of what we will never see.
That is the secret discipline.
It is the refusal to let our creative act
be dissolved away by our need for immediate sense experience
and is a struggled commitment to the future of our grandchildren.
Such disciplined hope is what has given prophets, revolutionaries and saints,
the courage to die for the future they envisage.
They make their own bodies the seed of their highest hopes.

so, how about that?

Have a beautiful day, and share some love, either by hug, smile, or holding of tongue and let’s make a change today.

Here’s a smile and a hug from me – from one of my favorite days….

Mother’s Cafe, NDEs – Looking forward to March but not SXSW

February’s dinner was at Mother’s Cafe – a REALLY popular vegetarian/vegan restaurant in the Hyde Park area that gets pretty packed on Saturday nights, although it’s got a great comfortable vibe about it that doesn’t make you feel rushed or packed together like sardines.  On Saturday evenings they have live music, which when the guy showed up we all thought, OH NO – because we were afraid it was going to be loud, but on that night it was chill he played a xylephone type instrument that was made of wood.  Lovely background noise that is still easy to hear each other over.

motherscafe

If you go to Mothers – and you should – I HIGHLY recommend the Cheese Enchiladas with Verde Sauce.  Very Delicious!  Susan and Miranda got the Spinach Lasagna, which was huge and they said very tasty.  Kelly got Nachos which was also huge and very good.  I got a spice cake to go and that was nice and moist with great flavor.  SO – Mother’s Cafe – Tasty vegan/vegetarian, large portions, lovely atmosphere.  Try it.

NOW – ON TO THE CONVERSATION

bonnieandclyde

Susan brought a book about Bonnie and Clyde named Bonnie and Clyde: The Lives Behind the Legend by Paul Schneider – which you can read a timeline and the first 20 pages here – look for the free sample button next to the book.  She read it last year, and was surprised to learn that Clyde himself had a Near Death Experience.  That led us to a whole discussion on “coming back” to do good or bad.  Which lead to a discussion on free will, and how, interestingly, Bonnie and Clyde provided a diversion for the country during the dismal days of the Depression.

 

Sara brought a book too, named The Emotion Code by Dr. Bradley Nelson.  You can learn about that book here.  This book discusses something we all within the group know to be true – that you can hold emotions in your body and that doing so can lead to illness.  We discussed how past emotional traumas can be held in the body as well, causing weaknesses that can lead to injuries.  We had a lengthy discussion about body work since some of the members of the group practice Reiki and other body work.  We talked about different experiences we’ve had while giving and receiving Reiki, and how basic energy work can lend itself to overall strengthening of psychic abilities.  Good stuff.

 

Our next dinner will be at Habisha and we’ll be enjoying Ethiopian food together.  Ethiopian is different, there are no utensils and you pick everything up with this interesting bread.  If you’ve never had it, Habisha is some of the best!  The topic for discussion will be Channeling – and the different ways people channel, some people may be surprised to learn there are many different ways…some channel with Angels, some with Spirit Guides, others tap into energy and the actual person or event they are reading.  The next dinner is available online if you would like to check it out here, like I mentioned we’ll be steering WAY CLEAR of SXSW and Downtown.  So if you are looking for an interesting way to spend your Saturday night, minus the headache of finding parking, crowds, overall drunken foolishness – and would like to join us instead, you are invited!

Speaking of Channeling, on Traveling Psychic Supper Club Radio this week (3/27/14) we’ll be interviewing local Austin Psychic Jo Todd, who channels Invisible Presence Isaiah.  TPSC Radio is LIVE every Thursday at 5:00pm Central on www.paramaniaradio.com.  We welcome call ins at (919) 295-0150, have a chat room available during the show, and love to hear from listeners.  If you miss the show it’s always available afterwards on demand here.  If you have a show idea we would love to hear from you too!  You can always email me at deborah@travelingpsychicsupperclub.com.

Thanks for stopping by the blog, feel free to leave a question or comment, and if you are in Austin for SXSW, be careful and have fun!

New Year, Back to Brass Tacks

OK, so we’re 15 days in, but it’s not too late to say…HAPPY NEW YEAR!  I hope everyone is doing one of two things, depending on how last year went:  1) Crawling out from the rubble and blinking, looking for the right direction, or 2) Hitting the ground running and killing it.  Which one describes you?

It’s time for a new year of dinners – and going back to basics.  We are tearing it down to the brass tacks – and tightening up the focus of the dinners.  Throughout 2013 it seemed like the dinners became more and more social, and were getting bigger and bigger.  I started feeling it, and it didn’t feel right.  We still talked about psychic stuff, but the conversation was getting diluted.  I had conversations with a couple of members who all agreed: We need to bring it back around.  So – January’s dinner is going to be just that:  Bringing it back around.  Pulling our energy back to our psychic centers.  And continuing to uncover exactly who we are, how we fit together and CHARGE FORWARD into why we were brought together – accept the purpose of this group and what it’s meant to do.

Who’s with us?  This is going to be a crazy big year, for the Supper Club, for moving forward and for creating and cementing solid connections.  We are up for the challenge.  Are you?

Here’s the link for the dinner on January 18 at Apreggio Grill.  The place is beautiful and the food amazing.

There are 4 spots left.  Hope to see you there.

Summer’s over, time for more dinners…

So my apologies for doing such a crappy job of keeping up with this blog.  It seems like every post starts with me apologizing for not maintaining this page!!  Most of what I write ends up on the If you could see what I hear page…yea, it’s on the home page, you’ll find it.  But this supper club blog, I’m not great at maintaining.  So I thought I’d just put up some pictures of our last dinner which was at Gusto.  It was really good.  The food is great (italian) and the staff is really nice.  You should go there.  But here’s the best part: It was our ONE YEAR ANNIVERSARY.

Kelly brought a delicious cake for the ONE YEAR ANNIVERSARY of the group.

But that cake stood for so much more than just a tasty treat.  It meant a YEAR.  A whole FREAKING YEAR.  Which in a way, is so odd.  We’ve been together for a year, but it feels like so much longer.  When I look at what we’ve done together, and for each other, and each of us individually on our own, I’m so proud of everyone.  I’m so proud of us and what we are.

And this is just the beginning.

We invite anyone to join us.  So I ask you, are you one of us?  In case you don’t already know, the answer is yes.

And By The Way, we are going scouting for the rest of the locations for dinners for the rest of the year.  I’ll have the new restaurants up on the page by…um, soon.  VERY SOON, I promise.

And thanks again, Kelly for the cake.  🙂  You know everything behind it meant the world to me.

And thank you Jim for taking the pictures.  🙂
