Worrying

This is a guest post by gserpent.

I myself find this something for me to think about. I am the proverbial worrier… And as this post points out most eloquently, the things we worry about may never happen, or if we are so determined to worry, it can become a self-fulfilling prophesy (even if it is unconsciously provoked).

I encourage you to go to gserpent’s page to read…and follow the various reference links. However, many thanks to gserpent, for permission to reprint the text and video here for convenience. 

 We all worry.  Why do we worry all the time?  Getting this under control is one of the greatest things Magic does.  We as a human race are constantly looking for problems and danger. We look for something to happen.  No matter how good things get, we constantly play out worst case scenarios in our mind. Most people think this is a good thing.  They are simply wrong. It fills us with anxiety and we get addicted to the anxiety. You will never eliminate worrying, but you can understand that worrying is worthless.  

When you worry you don’t get good results in your life and it makes you not feel good.  It makes you feel frantic and anxious. It causes you to self sabotage. You focus on something and you actually attract it to you.  What you think about you bring about. I just got back from a vacation. We flew out to Phoenix and my mind wanted to get me to think about the bad things that could happen.  What if the flight has a mechanical delay? What if our rental car breaks down? What if our reservations were messed up at the resort? What if, what if, what if. If I focused on these worries, I would not have had a good time.  What most do is they focus on the bad that pops into their mind and it makes their motivation go way down.

 

The ancients called this the troll or gremlin in the mind. It is the troll or gremlin in your mind that is doing this.  People will worry so much and cause the thing to happen that they worry about and then they will say their worrying was justified.  When if fact they brought it upon themselves. The thing with worrying is that is spikes the emotion of anxiety and fear. When you set things in your mind with emotion it makes them stronger.  Your mind thinks that’s what you want so it brings it to you. Then your mind gets into a vicious loop.

 

First you need to understand that worrying is not your fault.  If you have read Lemurian Magic, you understand that chaos has been with the human race from the beginning.  Our race has had catastrophic things happen from the very beginning. It is why the human race is how it is.  When things get good we worry about bad things happening. When bad things don’t happen we make bad things happen because we are addicted to the feeling.   Our mind wants to bring bad things to the fore front. We live in a world of duality. Bad things will happen, but we as a human race keep thinking about bad things and actually bring on bad things because we are addicted to it.  It is just like a new born who’s mother was addicted to a drug while she was pregnant. That new born will be addicted to that drug and will probably seek that drug out their whole life. This is the human race! We were born addicted to the drug of chaos.  Our mind seeks it out! We are addicted to fear and anxiety and we want that drug.

 

Worrying is useless.  You will never eliminate them, but you can reduce the worrying or make them not as bad.  Worrying drains your energy. It drains you psychic energy and mental resources. When you focus on the worrying you start to worry more.  Your vibration starts to change and your mind brings in more negative worrying(see Are Your Thoughts Your Own?). When you start to worry, catch yourself and ask your mind, why are you doing this?  What is the purpose of this negative worrying? Let the ego side of you mind know that you are in charge now and you will focus on all the cool, fun, good things that will happen instead of the bad.  That is exactly what I do anytime I get caught into a worry spiral. This process can be rather amusing if you listen to yourself argue with your own ego. It is what Gollum in Lord of the Rings was based on.

 

The ego is the infantile side of the mind.  If you yell at yourself and talk down to yourself in your own head, it will just feed the tantrums and worrying that your ego will do in the future.  You need to be gentle with your own ego. Just like a child will not respond well to negative motivation, neither will your ego. Negative motivation will work, but it’s not high quality and will not last for long.  Besides why would you want to motivate yourself with pain when you can motivate yourself with ambitions, pleasure and desire. Become aware of yourself by monitoring your own thoughts. Be honest with yourself. If you are a constant worrier and all you do is think negative thoughts all the time,  make a catastrophe about situations, worry about stuff that is out of your control or if you worry about things and stuff does not work out for you then you need to admit to yourself that the infant ego is in control. This is valuable insight to have about yourself. With this you can bring awareness to your worrying.

 

Your thoughts create your feelings and emotions.  If you are anxious and low energy all the time then its your thoughts that’s doing it to you.  It creates frustration and negative feelings. Try to focus on the positive outcomes when you catch yourself worrying.  When I catch myself worrying about the negativity I will get with what I say on my blog, I switch that to focusing on all the people I will help by releasing info that is very hard to find.  I focus on the chains that I break others from. How breaking the chains made my life better and how it will help others who want to break the chains too. Even if you have done the rejecting thoughts and accepting thoughts exercise I show in Magic, this exercise on focusing on the positive outcomes will help you too.

 

This is the beginning of inner work and understanding yourself.  Im not telling you that all your fear is bad. There is such a thing as realistic fear.  You would not be alive without realistic fear, but worrying brings on unrealistic fear. So other people will tell you that you have to get rid of all your fear.  Realistic fear is necessary. It keeps you from doing stupid things that will get you hurt or killed. Unrealistic fear is when you experience fear or anxiety when there is no real threat.  It’s all in your head. It is all the ego doing it. I can not stress this enough, it’s not your fault. Our minds are addicted to anxiety because of our history. Here are three more things that will help you get the worrying under control.

 

Put yourself in new situations.  Experience the world. Learn things for yourself.  Part of the reason a lot of people worry is they live a sheltered life.  Remember back the first time you started something new like your job. You worried about every last little thing until you got used to doing it and it became routine.  All the unrealistic fears you had caused anxiety. When you get out and do new things your mind will worry, but do the exercise I just showed you. Then when you go do the new things you like again, there will be less anxiety and you will have learned new things.

Break the feedback loop of your mind.  Whatever your internal state is, your emotional state or your regular state, it will be how you perceive the world.  We all live in this world but perceive it different. It is our relativity. We will all tune in to things that keep that inner state alive.  When you start to get into a worry spiral, you will look for things to reinforce your worrying. Then you worry more and look for more reinforcement.  Break that loop. Make yourself focus on the positive outcomes. This is why I say cut out the news. All of the news is to keep you in a negative feedback loop.  Change your influences.

Re-own what you have disowned about yourself.  Think of a time in your life where you were made fun of or shamed for something you did that was outside the norm of the masses.  Maybe you had an outfit you loved and wore it to school and got made fun of, so you never wore it again and started wearing what everyone else was wearing.  Maybe you spoke up about something and were shamed by a teacher for not going with what’s in the text book. It may not sound like much, but to a kid it is traumatic and overwhelming.  As a kid, your world is all you knew. To not fit in literally feels like you will die to a kid. When you were shamed or ridiculed your survival instinct kicked in and disowned certain parts of yourself, so you could fit in.  You have lived your life that way ever since. When certain things come up in your life today that trigger you, it makes you feel like you did when you were a kid. Realistically being different is not dangerous, but our mind makes it out to be dangerous.  Re-own who you are and validate who you really are. Look for things that trigger you, the things make your mind start to worry and give you anxiety. Those are bithings you have disowned about yourself. People try to stay out of situations that trigger them, but if you let yourself be triggered it brings it out so you can bring awareness to it.

Apply all of this to your life and it will help slow the worrying down.  These are what helped me. No one knows you better than yourself. Magicians, Witches and Wizards use the subconscious side of the mind to help them think.  It is the part of the mind that has been around since the beginning. Using it will not eliminate worrying, but it will help bring the worrying ego under control.

Personality Exposed part five

puzzle-3223941_640

Looking at Celebrity couples and Political Leaders

I have barely scratched the surface with Graphology (forgive the pun). It is a deep and complicated journey through a piece of writing full of nuanced thoughts, styles and interpretations. Most true Graphologists train for years to gain a proficiency that is consistent . I am just looking at this in a self interested fashion and wanted to share a little bit that I have learned.

 

A look at samples of  writing again

These are my interpretations only and do not reflect the work of people more qualified than I, but I have used some guidance from various Graphology Web sites (all listed below). 

Donald and Melania Trump

Melania-Trump-handwriting-956278

We have already noted Donald and Melania Trump writing styles as being similar. Both are somewhat forceful, aggressive people, and not very empathetic. They show ‘loner’ tendencies. I think they are quite compatible. They leave each other to their own space and are happy to do that because they both prefer it. 

 

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie

IMG_20190707_225506

This couple is Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie. They already had (before marriage) a common interest in helping disadvantaged kids, but they themselves, are from very different backgrounds. 

Nicknamed ‘Brangolina’ during their marriage because they seemed to be the perfect couple. Their signatures say otherwise. 

It is difficult to find normal handwriting for each. Apparently, both Pitt and Jolie  have a tendency to write publically in printed capital letters (a sign of privacy, and wanting to be clear and not misinterpreted, repressing their own feelings). Now divorced,  Pitt shrank from the public spotlight for a while, upon the breakup, with media reporting on his low mental state, and his retreat to be with consoling friends. Jolie did not. She held her head high and carried on with life as normally as possible. 

IMG_20190714_215531

Brad Pit has a simple upright, initials only, signature, which he might have developed during their Marriage. He shows a sense of pride in who he is and he promotes himself with an upward curve in the underline. Both letters carry a sense of self confidence, a tendency to think carefully, and creativity, but the letters are squished together (insular).

Pitt is materialistic, but there is also a sense of trying to shut out his materialistic nature with the curved underline crossing out the long down stroke on the ‘p.’ 

IMG_20190714_145051 Pitt has signed to the left of Jolie (who wrote the note and signed before he did), an attempt to make himself look more important than his wife.

IMG_20190714_155759

I found a signature that had Brad Pitt’s whole name. The signature is more revealing because of the sudden drop off of the last letters (a sign of depression or unhappiness). The underline, forms a low cross representing the ‘tt’ on the dropped off last name. It suggests that Brad has low self esteem and is disappointed with himself for not living up to his family name. 

IMG_20190714_154644

Angelina Jolie is a stronger personality than Pitt, showing aggressive jagged strokes in her public signature. The ‘A’ is wide spaced (inflated ego) and the rest of the letters appear as a series of triangles also quite widely spaced (stubbornness), she thinks logically and carefully about everything and is pragmatic about all things. She is open only with people she knows, but is a person who can show extraordinary friendliness to people who make it into her circle. Her handwriting shows a soft garland quality on the baseline, but there is not a great deal of empathy (closed ‘e’).  She is confident and reserved with an opinionated ego, has respect for herself and pride in her profession. She also has loner tendencies and is fiercely independent in her work. Her stroke linked words suggest eagerness or impatience. Her nest handwriting and carefully placed ‘i’ dots suggests a precision and perfection-oriented attitude. 

It is no wonder that the ‘Brangolina’ team fell apart. Angelina Jolie simply charged ahead and left Brad Pitt in her dust! 

They were never compatible in style, but Brad was unable to keep up for a complimentary relationship either. The match was doomed from the start. 

 

Boris Johnson and Jeremy Hunt

These two samples belong to Boris Johnson and Jeremy Hunt, both contenders for British Prime Minister to replace Theresa May. Both have an agenda to take Britain through Brexit. 

IMG_20190714_145353

Johnson’s writing slants upwards, showing an upbeat positive attitude. His writing a mix of cursive and print is clear and precise, signifying intention, but the dots on the ‘i’ s show an impatience and the right slant on the words show a slight impulsiveness. He has a normal ‘t’ so is not driven to high personal achievement, but is confident and pragmatic. He doesn’t have a personal inflated ego, but does put emphasis on family and social groups (political party) with a lower emphasis on his position within them (modesty). Johnson doesn’t always close his a’s and o’s properly (can’t always keep secrets). He has some e’s that show some empathy for others. But a lot of them are closed suggesting, not always. The signature is confident and puts equal weight on both his Christian and surname. Boris knows who he is and has no need to inflate himself.

 

IMG_20190714_192244

Hunt has very small blotchy writing with letters that don’t always close suggesting that he will use whatever confidential information he is given to further his agenda. His writing is not easy to read so perhaps has a private quality, but it does have some precision to it (self control). The words show a tendency to slant differently (left and right) showing an inability to control his emotions at times. The i’s are dotted perfectly, showing precise calculation. The t’s are crossed with confidence with a positive upswing to the cross stroke, and the m’s show balance (no inflated ego) with balance in self, family life and job. Hunt believes in himself. The writing has a tendency to slightly curve downwards and then back upwards again, suggesting an effort to stay positive when feeling negative about a situation (determined to show he is in control). The small letters show a tendency to hold in emotions and not reveal any insecurity. There is a sense of frustration in the y’s. The writing suggests inner struggle but determination to succeed. Hunt’s e’s (sign of empathy) are mostly closed, but that might be due to the smallness of his writing. Hunt’s signature is confident, clear and emphasised (underlined) on his first name (I am Jeremy), but almost dismissive of the surname. Jeremy is an individual out to prove himself.

Not everyone will be convinced about the accuracy of Graphology, but there have been a number of historical studies done by European psychotherapists to confirm what has been noted in aesthetic philosophies for centuries. Our brain will make subtle changes to the pattern of our words commensurate with our state of emotion, health and perceived social status. Our style will change as we age, and with failures and successes in life . There is a further theory that if we change our conscious effort towards more positive writing styles, we change our perception of the world too. Many therapists working with children in schools will apply some of these principles to help children deal with disabilities to express themselves in more positive ways.

Certainly, employers who use Graphology methods, can determine if a candidate will be a suitable fit in the social hierarchy of a company. Graphology cannot determine if a candidate will be the perfect candidate, or if they will be able to carry out all aspects of the job. It cannot accurately determine how the applicant will apply their traits, if at all. A person with a felon’s claw trait does not necessarily mean that he or she will commit a crime, or act violently. It does indicate that the mindset is there.

I will finish up here… but if you want to know more, do look at the links below. 

The next post will be a reprinted (with permission) guest post on ‘Worrying’ from gserpent. It fits well with these posts on handwriting. One of the reasons that our handwriting holds so many traits, is because we have various unconscious insecurities about how others may perceive us. We worry what other people think about us or worry about whether we can trust others. If we can stop the ‘worry’ and change our writing to reflect positive behaviours, imagine how it can change our outlook on life. We can be the best we can possibly be, and maybe find the answer to how we move forward in a more positive relationship with the world and to each other.

Personality Exposed part three

My Charactar on Trial

~ Part 2

 

Writing Depth, Spacing, Slant

writing-923882_640

Weight or depth of writing indicates me to have medium to light in pressure, and that my memory is short remembering events. I have a tendency to forgive and forget.

davMy Writing

 

A heavy weight (creates indentations on page underneath), indicates emotion and stamina. This person takes everything seriously and is unlikely to forgive. They remember injustices, and give no second chances. 

 

Blotchy writing is a casanova type or flitting type of person, like a bee to flowers. 

 

Thick writing (choosing a thick nib or felt pen) is someone trying to make themselves look imposing and unforgettable. (Donald Trump does this). 

IMG_20190711_204542

Rare early example of Donald Trump writing before he switched to printed capital letters.

 

My writing is medium sized, so I am fairly comfortable in my skin. It used to be tiny as a youngster, a distinct sign of lack of my confidence, shyness and inability to feel comfortable in social situations.

Large writing means the writer is extremely sociable, or extroverted, or wants to appear imposing. 

I do space my words apart a little more than usual. It means, that although I can be sociable, I like my personal space. I am not inclined to let people into my personal space until I trust them. I also occasionally lift my pen to write a stand alone letter (not all of them are joined up). This is a sign of intuitive pauses, thinking about what I am writing.

 

Prince Charles has an interesting trait. He also spreads his words, but often has a long stroke between words, either linking one word backwards to the last (I think this is a sign of reinforcement) or it moves to the next  word (forward thinking). It makes him look slightly unsure of what to write, and he scans back and forth to be sure. 

IMG_20190711_205052Prince Charles

 

My writing is fairly upright. which means that I think before making decisions. (The Queen has upright writing but hers is more assertive) .

dav

My Writing

 

A slight backslant can indicate a negative, depressed person

Too much backslant is considered to be a warning of an unsociable, self-absorbed person.

A slant to the right, on the other hand, is indicative of a warm, outgoing person who will jump right in and commit themselves. Caring people have this trait. Kate Middleton is a right slanted writer. So is Meagan Markle, but her writing is much more embellished making her rather determined to point it out, and to jump before thinking. Meagan also has developed a tendency for a backward flourish on her words. This is in the upper area of her writing, and equates to her conscious attempt to point to past achievements. 

IMG_20190711_205449

IMG_20190711_205809

 

Interestingly, Princess Diana was an upright writer and used simple letters to express herself (clarity of message). The control on her letters (closing them off properly) relate to a trustworthy nature(she could keep a secret).

EPSON scanner image

My writing is level with the top of the page, meaning I am fairly balanced in my moods. If it does slant, it tends to go up.

davMy writing

 

An upward leading style toward the top-right of page, is the sign of a happy, fun, positive person.

IMG_20190711_210843

Robin Williams handwriting showed a positive, upbeat style. His ultimate suicide was more to do with a diagnosis of Parkinson’s disease, coupled with Lewy Body Syndrome, a form of dementia that causes delusions. 

A downward slope towards bottom-right is the trait of an unhappy, negative person.

IMG_20190711_211728

Adolph Hitler handwriting shows a downward trend. 

 

A mix of styles, slanting one way and then the other, is the sign of a person who has no control over their emotions. Jeremy Corbyn has writing in this category, but blames it on poor education! Benjamin Netanyahu also has a mixed style.

IMG_20190711_212401Jeremy Corbyn

 

What do you think these two styles say about these people. Do they have leadership qualities? Answers on who these writing samples belong to on my next post.

Personality Exposed part two

mind-544404_640

I am leaving my self analysis out of the mix today, except to share one more thing about my ‘i’ trait. Yesterday, I revealed that I was a procrastinator, with a tendency to pessimism and disorganisation, based on my little i. There is one more thing to share on that, and it is the fact that my i is so simple, without loops or any adornment. It shows that I cannot identify with my parents. Yes, they are both dead, but that is not it. I did not have a happy childhood, and by age eighteen, I had shunned them both completely. It is starkly evident in my writing. Who knew? 

I am saying all this (and I will continue with revelations about me later), to encourage you to look at your own handwriting. Why? Because, we are deeply self-deceptive with ourselves, and if that is so, we cannot function optimally in the world.

Before we can offer something to others, we must know what it is that we are offering? We must be sure that we are not taking instead, without any return of the gift. Knowing yourself (really being objective about it), gives an opportunity to repair and heal that which we think may not affect us, but that is actually dominating our spirit. And we need to know it, and change if we are to move forward into a kinder world.

These short videos on Graphology will be well worth watching… About 6 to 11 minutes duration  each. They say so much… More than we want to admit. 

 

 

 

 

And one more for the writers out there… This one will interest you, because it is about creativity and the traits of great literary giants. 

 

Personality Exposed part one

My Character on Trial

~Part 1

office-620817_1280
My handwriting sample is self-analysed, so I am probably biased, but then I know myself fairly well (or should do after a lifetime). Still, it isn’t comfortable for me to do this. Not everything is positive, and it really does shed some light on my character faults.

My Sample Page

sdr

MARGINS
Margin placement analysis is quite complicated. I have simplified it here so as not to be too verbose.

Left Margin
I have used a normal left margin of 15% of the page, which means I have equilibrium of a simple life, conscious order and harmony.
The margin drifts slightly to the right as I descend the page, meaning I am trying to detach in an optimistic way from what I write, but it could also could indicate impulsiveness.

Right Margin
My right margin is small at about 8% of the page width, meaning I am sociable, and an extrovert, but can also mean that I have a tendency to defend myself from others or outside influences. The right margin is irregular with one blank block (A margin ghost) that should have been filled with words. The irregular margin indicates that I can have out of control emotions, be ambivalent or disordered. The block gap (Margin Ghost) says that I might have fear about making decisions for the future.

Top Margin
This is the relationship with the reader. In a non-header page, such as this, it is normal at 10-15% of the page. It suggests courtesy, good manners and self control.

Bottom Margin
This is indicative of how writers move on in life (turning the page). Mine is slightly small, showing a resistance to change.

LETTERS

Letter ‘t’
Most of my ‘t’s’ are consistent, with a midline cross on the ‘t,’ which is reflective of balanced self-esteem. The slanting (left to right) vertical down-stroke is indicative of self control, reflection, objective decisions and actions. When crossing double ‘tt’s,’ I use a single rising cross stroke, indicating quickness and ingenuity.
Notice the cross on the double ‘tt’ on ‘go-getter’ word. The cross bar is (unusually for me) placed almost at the top of the down strokes. It may have been a subconscious raising of my own expectations. High cross bars indicate high self-esteem, ego and achievement. Rebellion can also be a negative aspect, especially if the cross bar is above the down stroke. (Sometimes a company might want that, especially if they wanted a job applicant to expand their business. A low cross bar on the ‘t’ indicates low placed self-esteem or a person who has no goals (a warning to employers).

Letter ‘i’
I have a lot of inconsistencies in my ‘I,’ especially on the dot.
The downstroke is direct and simple, showing a quickness for comprehension but also that I feel some limitation for resources.
The light pressure on the dot, indicates a certain amount of mysticism, but dot placement is not very precise, sometimes missing (forgetfulness), sometimes left of its target, (procrastination or pessimism) , sometimes right (inattention to detail). Occasionally a slight concave jab appears (irritation). The solid dot represents loyalty.
More on my personality will be exposed next post… but if you want to learn more about your own writing, this website is really helpful.

Handwriting and Your Brain 🤓 🧠

Did you know, that handwriting is better for your brain than typing? The art of hand writing uses all parts of the brain, whilst typing does not. So if you find your mind getting a bit foggy (does come with aging), try writing a diary. Pick a favourite pen and make it an artwork.

Famous Signatures

You likely already guessed that these signatures belong to Donald and Melania Trump.

Melania-Trump-handwriting-956278

What do you think these signatures say about them?

The angular strokes are sharp, unforgiving. Donald has a very jagged ‘D’ that is large and full of self importance, but also closes off in a series of jagged angles, suggesting he is unapproachable and dismissive. The last name, he has given slightly more importance to the ‘T’ which is taller than all letters, suggesting surname means everything to him, but both names start with large capitals letter suggesting self importance.

There is pragmatism and intuitiveness in both signatures, but Melania doesn’t use her intuition. She, unlike Donald, is patient (waiting for rewards). Both are ego-centric and narcissistic, but Melania is the more grasping and mean spirited of the two (narrower writing all squished up with little curled hooks). She has big emphasis on the last name, so it is important to her. Both are very family oriented but in a self-interested closed fashion, excluding outsiders. There are tendencies for anger in both, but Melania keeps hers to herself. The high, short cross bar on her ‘T’ last name, with a long descender on it and also on the last ‘p,’ suggest her intense materialism associated with her marriage to Donald.

Interestingly, both of them have simple block type writing for composition of general text. Donald tends to use capitals for all written notes. This is a man who means what he says, wants to shout it, and is full of self importance. He doesn’t want anyone to misinterpret what he says.

Are you surprised?

Hard to Hide

Our personality can say so much about our goals in life.

From an early age, most of us are taught to write. It is a requirement for expression within our schools and for interaction in society.  We have all learned to join up our letters. 

writing-1209121_1920.jpg

“As long as we are studying penmanship in school or at home it is a merely mechanical operation; we simply follow the copy-book or the blackboard letters written by the instructor, but after we have mastered the art of penmanship, we become independent and write and form letters of the alphabet to suit our personal taste and ability. Our hand then becomes the unconscious instrument of our brain and merely transcribes into letters, words and sentences, the active thoughts as they are formed…. We find just as many different kinds of handwriting as there are people.”

 ~Hugo J. von HAGEN 

Graphology: How to Read Character from Handwriting, 1919

 

True Graphology, is a complicated business. It requires meticulous measurement using special rulers, statistical analysis, and a lot of time to analyse the handwriting of one individual. 

Our personal script says so much about us… it is like a window into our soul.

I have only attended a couple of informal lectures on Graphology, so don’t know much, but I have learned enough that I can see that there is some merit to it by  looking at my own handwriting. I include it here so that you can look at it too. It is a quickly produced piece so that my traits show up best. 

Of course, I use unruled, plain white paper. There must be no guiding constraints to a true handwriting sample. Everything matters. The space, the style, the pressure, and even the choice of pen.

dav

I will share with you on the next post what my handwriting reveals about me, but perhaps you can guess? Am I introverted, or extroverted? Am I generous or mean? Am I secure, or insecure? Can you rely on me, or am I self-serving. Am I ruthless or gentle?

Am I a world saving hero, or a shrinking violet? Do I want to be in your life close and in your personal space, or am I distant and uninterested? Do I care about you, or do I care about me? Am I fun, or a misery guts?

All will be revealed soon. I can tell you that I am not perfect! 😂 

Graphologists have had a field day with most leaders and celebrities of the world. Their handwriting says so much about them… And some couples (in relationships) can have similar looking signatures. Shockingly so in some cases.

Have a look… Do you recognise this couple?

Melania-Trump-handwriting-956278

But some close relationships can also show opposite characteristics in the  handwriting, meaning that we can either complement each other ( a positive relationship) or find conflict ( a negative relationship). Who do you think these signatures belong to, and do you see complementing each other, or conflict? 

IMG_20190707_225506

There are a lot of positive aspects as well as negative aspects to each characteristic writing style… It shows that we have a choice to be either positive or negative in our lives, and that is really important, because there’s a little wiggle room for change.

Graphology is not a science. It falls far enough outside of an absolute, not to be allowed in law courts (like the lie detector test). But occasionally, Graphologists might be called in to give police an idea of the type of person they might be dealing with in some unsolved cases. Writing traits can show the psyche of a potential criminal, and let police know what kind of person they might be investigating. 

Our writing is unique, but so is our Signature…

signature-523237_1280

Our signature is what we put out to the world to say who we are publicly (rather than our private image which is only shared with close friends and family). It is generally more stylized to suit what we wish to project, rather than what we actually do with the rest of our  more emotive writing style. 

What do you think that your handwriting says about you?

One potato, two potato, three potato, four…

little-boy-3332111_1920

When you woke up this morning, what was your first awareness? Was it a thought, a sound, bright light, what?

Mine was sound. I listened. Birds were singing; Blackbird, Crow, Finches and a Wood Pigeon. Not the dawn chorus, but enthusiastic nevertheless, at 7:00 am on a sunny morning. Next awareness, my husbands radio (always playing BBC radio 4) with the hourly news report. Then an airplane noise overhead. As I opened my eyes, light streamed in, forcing me to wakefulness. Blue sky and bright sunshine greeted me as I opened the curtains, listening to a report on the news to implement a plan to plant millions of trees worldwide to mitigate CO2 from the atmosphere…

Looking out the window onto tree-lined scrubby land filled with small brown butterflies and hover flies, it is hard to believe that there is a problem with our world.

If only all mornings could be this perfect for everyone?

One potato, two potato, three potato, four…

A game from my young childhood began playing in my head. As friends, we’d giggle in the playground, starting a game of hide and seek tag. “One potato, two potato, three potato four” … the appointed leader would use her rolled up fist to bump each of our own in turn… “five potato, six potato, seven potato, more… You’re it!” The eighth person that she chose, was ‘It.’

So ‘It’ would turn away and hide her eyes for a count of 10 seconds at a designated home base, while the rest of us ran away and hid. “Coming! Ready or not,” ‘ It’ would warn. She then used stealth, cunning and speed to find us, and tag us with another fist bump. If we got back to home base, we were safe from the tag. If not, we became the next ‘It.’ This endless game was social, competitive, fun and removed pent up tension from sitting too long in class. Even shy little weedlings like me enjoyed this game along with the extrovert types. We all got along, no one argued. When you were tagged, it was your turn to be the catcher. You were in charge, but only until you passed the tag onto the next person. It was fair, it was fun and we all adhered to the guidelines to participate.

A lot of those tags, turned into body slaps, with camaraderie and more giggles. We connected on a physical, emotional and mental level. If we were tired, it was OK to step away and watch from the sidelines, but we could join in again at any time. It was our game. We set the rules between us, and we all profited, increasing our awareness, speed, agility, and ability. There were no tools, no money, no betting, no corruption and no complaints.

Could the world work better this way, organising our leadership roles with a connected spirit? Certainly we need leaders but surely they should always be for the common good for all of us, and we should be able to choose who gets to be a leader at any time, while sticking to the same rules that we have all decided.

“One potato, two potato, three potato, four.”

The Post you will read below is one I posted Five years ago. Nothing much has changed in the world in regards to pollution and the way in which we are treating each other.

I can only do my own part in being aware of my own plastic footprint, growing much of our own vegetables and fruit and monitoring my recyclingng habits.

More and more I am retreating into my own inner world as I create and manifest the world I wish to live in as I leave this old programming within this Matrix

What brings me more and more hope now are how young minds are seeing just why they are a force to be reckoned with. As we see how from the very young their awareness of our destruction of our planet is echoing further afield rattling their voices upon the doors of governments.

When we Unite as ONE, we can see what can be achieved as we saw from the School Strikes for Climate, to the Students who protested new laws in Hong Kong fighting new Extradition laws to China.

When we wake up to our internal power of Unity Consciousness, the power within, which has the power to change our reality, you can see why so much effort is being focused upon dumbing us down.

We are so much more powerful than we are led to believe.

If you have a mind, use it to educate yourself to the realities of the World.

Change is constant,

It’s time we all Woke up, and Change begins first with changing ourselves.

Much Love, Sue

“There are many magical corridors. There are many Powerful Pathways. Beware those who would claim there is but one.”

Quote: Mary Summer Rain

Another dip into my thoughts as I sit with my journal.

While I try to keep my blog a Sanctuary for inspiration love light and peace. I am far from living in the land of make believe. And know that there are many wrongs which need to be put to rights.

I try to live in my own positive bubble, because I know only too well how easy it is to fall into Pits of despair for the sufferings of the world.

Being empathetic often mean we become over sensitive to the horrors going on. And if I’m not careful, images can replay in my mind for days as my energy reaches out to those suffering souls, as I feel their pain. But I also know that if I do not detach and reign in these emotions they will serve me no good. For eventually they will end up devouring me.

Even so as I look into nature I see how birds squabble and fight for their territory. Each of us are not without our problems. We all have to find balance if we are to learn and live in harmony.

But neither can I be like the ostrich and bury my head in the sand either. Too many peoples lives are at steak.

Getting Angry about certain situations solves nothing. For Anger only feeds those who serve those same darker forces enabling them more control as they exercise their fear tactics to be used upon the masses.

We all need to be mindful of what energies we are putting out into the world.

We do however need to Wake up to what the real world is doing. And as we rub the sleep from our eyes we need to open them and start and question. Let us stop being submissive in acceptance of what we are being told by those in power. Let us look at how corruption is being exposed by those who are the elite and seek out the real Truth amongst the constant lies spewed forth. Let’s utilise and use our greatest power, as we unify for peaceful solutions and open our eyes to who the enemies of humanity really are.

When I published some facts in previous years. I was often reluctant to press the publish button for the labels of conspiracy theories soon had their fingers pointing that I was some kind of nut.

I have always maintained. Never believe one word I say. But do your own research.

You owe it to your self and your family in seeking out the true reality of how this world works. And once you do. You’re eyes are guaranteed to Pop! out of your head.

Its time to stop being blinkered and speak up against the injustices of the World its time if you have a vote to use it. And its time to understand we are all of us connected via the matrix of energy we send out.

So sending Anger only creates more to boil over. What goes around comes around.

But neither can we pretend everything in this world is ok.

As we watch scenarios play out which are bringing yet more deaths through those who play War Games with their citizens lives. Using children, teenagers either through murders or kidnappings, to escalate their causes is despicable.

We can no longer be complacent as we allow those in power to play with our World.. I speak not just about the warring of nations,

But I speak also about the war against our Earth.. Look up people at our Skies Look into our oceans and look at what you are putting into your bodies.

I tagged this within my Mind Body Spirit section.

I hope you will be Mindful.

And I hope you see we are all One Body with that of our Earth.

And lastly I hope your Spirit moves you to Wake up and engage in positive actions where ever you are in the world, to bring awareness and to help heal the Earth and her people’s where ever you can.

Christmas Time is for Sharing ❤️

It has been a long time since I posted on my blog (apologies) and I will be back.
In the meantime, I wish you a lovely Christmas and New Year with your loved ones.

Perhaps spend a moment to remember to reduce your carbon footprint, by turning off lights overnight and keep it all simple this year.

Oh, and send some Love ❤️ to those around the world who maybe struggling. Your thoughts will find and comfort them.

Here is a lovely video I found of ‘The Sugar Plum Fairy’
May it leave you in the spirit of the Season!

Fractal Humanity

What does it really mean to be human?

I am returning to the subject of my first post here because I think Humans have the ability to understand how the Universe works and therefore how life itself works.

Fractals are the Fibonacci discovery of a pattern that applies to all life forms. Think of the infinite pattern as similar to a hologram. Each tiny piece of the hologram is a fragment replica containing the whole image.

We think of life forms as separate and different, but in fact on the molecular scale we are all the same, arranged from the same building blocks of life. Each molecule holds information that can create itself. It is no coincidence that we are made up of 70% water… for so is the earth. All life forms follow a set of rules that connect our forms in patterns already dictated by the universe itself.

So what does this mean for us everyday folks who aren’t mathematicians, scientists or amazing philosophers? It means that we must stop treating everyone and everything as separate from ourselves. This is the concept of God…a creator that holds us all in its own image. This is not a separate entity, but the all encompassing energy of everything. It is us, all of us. Human, animal and plant.

For humanity to understand fully how to incorporate this into everyday life, we have to forget the word ‘separate.’ For when we use that word, it creates ‘difference,’ ‘dislike,’ ‘fear,’ and other negative emotions that break down life, break down symbiosis, break down cooperation, break down growth. For too long, we have been told that we are separate from the animals, separate from the rich, separate from the powerful, separate from the poor or the other races; the list goes on.

We are all born and we will all die. This is the pattern of all life forms. We have, in the time in between, growth of our form, reproduction and family and an ability to feel a physical experience through our senses. Each and every life form depends on other life forms for food or existence in some way. This means that in order to be human, we also harbour other life forms within us (bacteria), and they, in turn have other life forms in them. The Planet…a living organism supports us all and the universe in turn holds the galaxies that hold the planets, ad infinitum. Time and Space is a human construct to describe our existence within the plane of our perceivable dimension of all that is. We know from infrared, x-ray and other wavelengths that what we experience physically, is not everything that exists. Time and Space is not a real form but an idea to explain to us our own physical experience and to give us a linear perspective of a non-linear universe full of different life that we cannot perceive.

All physical life forms are patterns on an energy information system that brings together everything that exists.
We are so connected, that a single thought form can be felt around the globe and even out into the universe. If we project fear, then we will see and feel fear. If we project war, then we will see and feel war. But if we project only love, then we will see and feel only love. It is that simple, and that complex.

We need to rethink how we live because the planetary system that we live in is changing. It may be that the earth becomes inhospitable for some life forms. We, as humanity, need to address how we are going to deal with those changes. Our old ‘separate’ thinking will not work now. It is time for our symbiotic nature to return. For us to feel everything in our physical plane. If we do not reconnect to our oneness then we will not know the love or joy or the bliss of everything. We will not exist.

What will a return to our symbiotic nature look like in a more down to earth world view?

Here are a few examples showing how to live a loving symbiotic life…

And finally… How Love can heal a broken spirit and bring back health and vitality.

These are not unique examples. There are many. Good stuff is around us everyday. Focus on the love and connection and forget all the negative thoughts. They will only separate you from the rest of creation. They will destroy the energy that is YOU.

Is the human soul actually a chemical chain reaction?

I came across this short post which I think makes a good introduction to my next post (still undergoing research and thought process) on where our Human Future may take us. Many thanks to ‘decluttering my life‘ for allowing my repost.

 
“Psychologist Maslow alleged that only 1% of the population reach self-fulfillment. Why do the majority fail along the road?

Needs can be classified into five hierarchical stages. Once the first four levels are met, we can focus on self-actualisation. Our mind can not be deceived with excessive lower level satifaction.


    Biological needs – air, food, drink, shelter, warmth, sex, sleep.

    Safety needs – security, law, stability.

    Belongingness needs – friendship, trust, acceptance, receiving and giving love, affiliating.

    Esteem needs – achievement, independence, status, self-respect, respect from others.

    Self-Actualization needs – realizing personal potential. It requires honesty, independence, awareness, objectivity and creativity.

soul

Why are our states of mind always faltering?  This progress is often broken by failures to meet lower necessities. Private and professional life events can make us swing between the stages. Different levels can appear any time and complex needs can require actions at more levels at a time.


Why do we start worrying about the meaning of life once our goals get achieved? Reaching the top level, we start musing life itself. “We may come to fear that death in inevitable and that life is meaningless, but at the same time cling on to the cherished belief that life is eternal or at least important.” This ‘existential anxiety’ can be treated with  moral codes or even religion.”

Climate Future?

Climate Change has troubled me for years now. I remember back in the late 1970’s a huge hole in the ozone layer appeared due to the use of CFC’s (Chlorofluorocarbons) used in everything from air conditioners to propellant in aerosol cans.

As the years rolled on, I remember quite a few warnings about acid rain destroying our freshwater lakes and rivers. Then, in quick succession, it was nuclear accidents, oil and chemical spills, and PCB’s (polychlorinated biphenyls) polluting our drinking water, causing terrible cancers. The world seemed doomed as we realised the extent of damage we’d created. But suddenly, the media reports all went quiet.

I, like most people, didn’t give it a lot of thought at the time… But mainstream media dropped the stories about such problems and focused on the 1980’s with its rebounding economics, new music tastes and outrageous fashions. The world was focused on opulent, narcissistic living and corporations cashed in on the rush to buy, buy, buy. The madness of ‘material acquisition’ continued well beyond the 1990’s until abject greed caused economic collapse to start rearing its ugly head.

But the environmental  problems were, and are still there and worsening. Lots of hard working scientists knew it. So did the polluting industries. But until the whistle blowing by frustrated, (and government silenced), scientists began, the general public was kept intentionally, uninformed….

So here we are, nearly 40 years on and still nothing really constructive has been done to mitigate any of these pollution predicaments we have created. In fact, we have added more nuclear, more gas and coal, more oil, more chemicals and more aerosols to the deadly mix of atmospheric pollutants that now holds our planet in its grip. 

Scientists have suggested that we are now living in a different geological epoc, (The Anthropocene) and concurrently living through the sixth mass extinction period known in the Earth’s geological history.

We receive messages about clean energy and changing our ways…and that is great. Many governments are spreading the ‘clean up’ message.

Mission Climate Change

The UN is suitably worried and is encouraging everyone to keep with the game plan to reduce global emmissions.

10min climate change update
April 2017 by Scientists.

And CBS news reports on the climate trends seen so far in 2017
But is all this now just ‘arranging the deck chairs on the ‘Titanic.’
The most recent news is worrying…

Permafrost Thaw

Oceans warming 70% more than previously thought

So do climate scientists agree?

It would seem that most climate scientists do agree.

But one particular scientist says that we are not getting the whole story.
Guy McPherson, professor emeritus of natural resources and ecology and evolutionary biology at the University of Arizona. He says that we have entered into the unknown territory of Abrupt Climate Change and predicts that Human Extinctions will come in as little as in 10 years. Yes, you read that correctly – TEN YEARS…maybe even sooner!

So generally, people are not really taking climate change seriously. There are so many videos, talks, news items, scientist speaking out (risking and even losing their jobs), but we just aren’t getting the message. Instead, we ridicule and berate their dedicated work of decades and reduce it to a number of clichés. How awful that we can be so arrogant. But we will pay a price for that. Even the renowned, bubbly Biologist, David Attenborough, is extremely gloomy about our future as a species. But we are not listening.

Instead, we rave about Artificial Intelligence and a robotics dominated world. Why? While those people developing these technologies are surely doing so out of some sense of helping humanity, can they not see the awful potential of these new technologies as powerful weapons against us by the future powers that would single us out as the enemy?
I recommend watching this next YouTube video by Guy, on his ‘Nature Bats Last’ channel (although you can find lots more at https://guymcpherson.com/ ). It perhaps sums up how we should perceive the sudden, and now abrupt climate change for the unknown and unstoppable force it has become. 

What can we do, if anything?

Guy recommends reading ‘End Game’ by Derrick Jenson   http://www.derrickjensen.org/endgame/ Written in two volumes, it is an account of the end of civilisation.

And Guy also recommends an online resource for free download at https://underminers.org/ written by Keith Garnish. The name here, ‘Underminers,’ implies the sort of anarchy we might require to adjust society to being one that actually serves our existence. 

These recommendations might appear extreme, and I cannot say if they give us any solutions (especially as I have not yet read them), so… I would say, live as kindly as you can, connect with your neighbours, try to be ecological, use manpower wherever possible (ride a bike or walk instead of using a car) and live simply, reduce your waste, but also reduce your purchase of anything unnecessary or wasteful. Try if possible to learn how to do things as if you were on a self sustaining camping trip with only the barest of essentials. This will all help you to adapt during the worst of the climate change events to come. You need to be resourceful and capable of surviving extreme and fast changes, especially if you have to move away from future flooded coastlines. As Guy McPherson says, ‘I do not know your personal extinction date.’ Make your life count now! Love yourself and everyone around you.

If we could do everything possible to mitigate climate change right now, this year, do you think we might just stop the worst? That we might just keep our climate stable? I like to think so, but what are the odds that it will happen? They are so slim as to be negligible. A hotter world is coming whether we like it or not!

What else can we do, if the climate is going to keep heating?
Well, let’s start being kind to the animals who will face these awful times with us! My previous post on ‘Why Do We Hurt Animals?’ gives some insights on the importance of learning to communicate with our fellow ‘Earthlings.’ The other species we live with have much more to offer than the objects of food and trinkets that we have turned them into for our own selfish pleasures. 

My previous post on ‘Vegan Future’ offers a dietary, and optional choice, but is it really optional? I think it is an inevitable and necessary one if we are going to survive. 
The current trend to factory farm animals is unsustainable, cruel, and contributes to climate change and ecological destruction. 

Consumption of factory farmed meat is also dangerous to human health. If you do not believe me, you would likely learn for yourself by watching ‘Lucent,’ a 2014 documentary on the factory pig farming industry in Australia. The scenes are typical of the factory farm industry in other countries like the US, Canada, Spain, Britain and many European countries. These are the high industry standards. You wouldn’t want to see the poor ones! I actually had to watch most of this documentary in 15 minute slots at a time. It was the only way I could make it through the whole (and tragic) life of a pig raised for our food.
