This is my first publication of a channeling session. I generally do my channeling every morning and it usually arrives with a level of energy and power that is so immense I can’t even write quickly enough. What is presented here are some observations on the current state of entertainment in society and how it is directly linked to the anxiety epidemic. I also receive this channeling in the form of certain perspectives. It feels as if my mind’s eye is being directed to look at various structures and imbalances in the way we are living currently. I just write it down as given to me. All of the observations are linked together but not necessarily in an obvious way. They are meant to be read with an active mind. They are observations not directives. I hope you get something out of them.
Aristotle wrote books on how to differentiate the essence of something and what is not essential to that essence. We still haven’t listened – it is just too much work and being in error is better than doing work. But if we had listened, racism, sexism, all -isms would be impossible.
What is possible for something is always determined by the nature of that something. If we understood what the essence of being human is, we might have a better idea of what is possible to manifest in this life of ours. But we are a culture who is absorbed in entertainment and distraction. Even good things such as exercise and science are abused to avoid looking at the nature of reality in the mirror.
ENTERTAIN: late 15c., “to keep up, maintain, to keep (someone) in a certain frame of mind,” from Middle French entretenir (12c.), from Old French entretenir “hold together,stick together,support,” from entre- “among” (from Latin inter ; see inter-) + tenir “to hold” (Latin tenere)
Entertainment in excess is a vice that is deadlier than cigarettes. It leads to absorption inside the other, and a lack of recognition of the self, and therefore a lack of unity and wholeness. The self becomes a pastiche of various opinions and personalities and dramas that do not seem to make a cohesive whole. They battle against one another for dominance. The individual who is absorbed within the world like this has difficulty processing his life a unit. He will always avoid intimacy because he will feel there is nothing there.
Entertainment sells. Even shopping has become entertaining and self indulgent: Amazon. Videos, emails, social media, video games, books, online courses. Advice, opinions, wise people everywhere. Everywhere you look, there is a place to dive into away from yourself.
Modern consumer culture is not of things, but of entertainment and information. Directly linked to anxiety. Anxiety arises from a loss of control and feelings of panic. Yes, when you spend most of your life listening to the world outside instead of inside, you are going to panic.
In life, we’re meant to build our own sea vessel. Most people are spending their time looking to buy sea vessels,find opinions about sea vessels, different techniques for building/navigating them. Scared and unfulfilled they then spend the rest of their time Googling “anxiety”
Holy Place: That emptiness you talk about within you? That “nothingness”? It is just the quiet space where no noise can enter, a holy place, a place of serenity and peace. And should you remain there still for a while, you will witness how the divine light enters you.

You can’t catch the right fish? Maybe you are in the wrong ocean.
There are so many drugs designed to alleviate our fear of life. There are predators who both consciously and unconsciously have an interest in perpetuating fear – just to have that big house and a yacht. The irony is they are more afraid than the people they sell their drugs to.
Society operates the way birds fly together. The individuals inform together making a perfectly balanced arrow shape in the sky. There are those who lead the way and those who follow behind, but they all keep in sync together. It is not true that the leading bird is showing the way. He is showing the way in the context of what is possible within that species of bird. He is limited by that, and he will do what is expected of him in that society. A society that feeds off of fear and pain, will make sure that fear and pain remains and that their leaders do not disturb or transform that pain through cures or rehabilitation.
We think that voting for new leaders will change society. That is an illusion. The leaders will not change anything. They will only increase the addiction and ailments in which the current society thrives.
Once you find your light and your power for good, you must be careful to keep it clear and powerful and nurturing for yourself and for those around you. It is easy to get caught up in all sorts of energies that will keep you away from seeing clearly.
So how to transform society? You don’t. Societies can only be dissolved or become unusable, like an old glove that has too many holes to be useful anymore.
Once the consciousness can see the absurdity and uselessness of the society it is in, and once that consciousness spreads, the society as it was will be discarded and quickly.
Society has an energy that sticks to your person. Some people think that morality comes from society. That is not true. Morality comes from everything that isn’t society. Society will however use morality in order to make itself feel good.
Become aware of yourself as an entity or being who has society’s fingers all over you. It could be felt or viewed as obscene. Certainly, inappropriate.
Going within doesn’t mean you want to be forever isolated from society. It is just that going within will allow us all to create a better society more suitable to individuals who love life, soul, and the planet.
Raising your consciousness is not easy. It isn’t a yoga pose. I am not going to lie. You will feel like you are falling apart. And you are meant to fall apart. Keep going. What collapses so easily isn’t worth keeping.
What is truly yours and of yourself will never fall away from you. Everything else is not yours or of yourself, so let it go. The more you cling to what is not yours, the more you suffer.
This tarot reading is a channeling regarding the masculine twin flame collective. I have been getting information for quite some time regarding issues around matters of money, particularly in the area of financial/material obligations/relationships. Since this is a new blog, I did not upload that information or the readings that helped me articulate that information. Today I am getting messages indicating that the masculines are beginning to wake up about the nature of themselves and the lives they have been living in. However, although they are eager to take action, they are finding things to be more challenging than that. The solution to this challenge demands that they go their own way. The ways they used to solve issues in life will no longer work.
As always, I like to remind the reader that tarot is not a fortune telling device. It is a channeling device that is particularly useful to those who receive vast amounts of information that often seems contradictory or difficult to parse. Thoughts about how the cards are chosen and how they appear is an article for another day, as it is still a topic I am exploring. All I know is that the cards work for me as a tool to see deeper into information I have been receiving previously and during the time of the reading. They provide further confirmation and ground my channeling in a way that I can see it visually. I am quite new to this visualization, so bear with me as I do this. I hope to eventually create some YouTube videos and do my readings there. But for now, I am more comfortable writing, since I am first and foremost, a writer.
As always, when I speak of masculine/feminine energy or masculine/ feminine in general, I am not referring to physical sexual orientation. We all carry both energies. Only you know which energies predominate in your disposition. I also use he/she pronouns, but they always refer to the energies, not the sexual orientation.
Masculine energy is all about making things happen, making dreams into reality, making a life that provides and moves one in the direction of a goal, a plan, an aspiration. Healthy masculine energy is the energy of powerful manifestation. It is so powerful that even when masculine energy is stuck or blocked or hindered, it will still try to find a way out by working around those blockages and even with them. Blockages are normal everyday challenges that the masculine will face when working on his goals. These can be very healthy and even rewarding on his path. However, there are other kinds of blockages that are not natural obstacles set to challenge him, but are of another more nefarious kind that can do immense damage to the overall psyche of the individual.
Masculines who have suffered damage to their natural will and focus have difficulty in manifesting what they want to achieve. In those cases, life never seems to go their way, and he usually finds himself reluctantly hitchhiking his way through life, while knowing deep down he is really meant to be driving his own car. Resentment of others, society, and the world at large becomes an easy release for his frustration.
The entire foundation of modern politics thrives on this dysfunctional male energy. Each politician thrives on their voters hating and despising not only their opponent, but the way things are in the world. And that doesn’t mean that things are not wrong in the world. There are plenty of areas that are worthy of development. The problem is that the politicians want the masculine to believe that they are the solution, and that he is not. This is a lie, but I will save that for another article.
There is a lot I can say in regard to this situation, but the most important thing to note in regards to this reading is that when the collective masculine is disempowered in areas of life, masculines become overrun by a tsunami of fear that never seems to stop swallowing all or some areas of their life. Instead of manifesting the world they want to manifest, they remain in a world of their mental imagination ruled by ego. They may become overly protective and stagnated in certain areas and so imbalances and disease increase as they age. They generally resist change in their lives because they want to maintain as much control as possible – they are holding on for dear life. They are tired, overworked, and try to compensate for this by engaging in addictive behaviors such as excessive activities involving alcohol, partying, drugs, sex, etc. Healthier minded masculines will opt for obsessions around video games, body obsessions, diet/weight obsessions, political zealotry, and various other modalities. They also generally form co-dependent and unhealthy relationships or groups of people with similar obsessions who allow them to continue to justify their lifestyle and attitudes about the world.
Considering this state of the collective masculine in modern Western society, I find this tarot reading to be encouraging, as I will show you.
So let’s now look at the cards.
The Ten of Cups is often considered good news when it appears on the tarot table. But in this instance it appears in the reverse, which indicates that all that glitters is not gold. The appearance of the reversed Devil card mirrors the reversed Ten of Cups in a remarkable way. Its presence indicates that happiness has not been ruined, but that it never really was happiness in the first place – it was actually set in place by means of unhealthy relationships, imbalanced obligations/contracts, and unfulfilling conditions that dominated the masculine’s life. These unhealthy relationships can involve money in general, finance, jobs, marriages, love relationships, friendships, and family/ancestral patterns of behavior. If you are more interested in exploring the power of these kinds of relationships/bindings, you can do some research on Morphic Field Energy or Morphic Resonance.
So what is sparking this break in the illusion? This is no “tower” or divine moment of intervention. This unraveling has been born by the determination of the The Knight of Swords who incidentally is facing, with sword in hand, the illusory bliss as pictured in the Ten of Cups. Swords reflect mental decisions and awareness. He is seeing the illusion through mental work – mind awareness. He and his horse are determined to do what has to be done, which is to reveal the truth about the Ten of Cups in this instance. The truth is reflected in the reversed devil card which indicates a revelation or overturning of what has been an unhealthy relationship with family, friends, or perhaps a financial agreement of some kind. The clarification card, the reversed Six of Pentacles, confirms to me the financial or material nature of these unhealthy relationships.
It is important to remember that the Knight of Swords reflects a take-no-prisoners cowboy attitude. This awareness of the illusion is just a mental awareness, but the Knight seems to think that he is on his way to victory. Unfortunately, victory isn’t quite that easy. Mental awareness of what has deceived us in our lives is not enough to find a good solution or alternative to the deceit. It is one thing to know your friends are not being entirely honest with you or that you haven’t been entirely honest with yourself, and another to figure out how to deal with that knowledge in a way that works out well and fair for all. The problem can go quite deep, as individuals in society are profoundly influenced by common templates, paradigms, and belief systems. The solution is usually not at an individual level – it requires a search for root cause of the problem. This is why we have the Queen of Wands looking away from the Knight. He has gone outside the boundaries of her interest which is to go deeper than mental awareness and remove the blockages that prevent action.
The Queen of Wands wants grounded, balanced energetic solutions. She sits in the center of this layout. The feminine is the center of all this motion. It is her connection to the masculine (Six of Cups) that has propelled him to access his intuition about his current situation, namely, that he has not been living inside of his truth, and has instead been living inside a reality that has not been in alignment with his nature. But the Knight was too hasty to act on this information. He wanted to translate the insight into an action item. As such, she is now looking upon him, not as a Knight, but as someone who was just trying to beat all the others at some game of mind (Five of Swords). He has taken the action, but many in his circle have either energetically or physically walked away from him. The masculine, in his rebellion against society, is left isolated. His close alliance with his feminine as depicted in the Six of Cups, also shows a man walking away from them. The masculine is now outside the co-dependent relationships he used to previously rely on (Six of Pentacles) and has no choice but to find his path, to leave the cups behind in search of filling them in his own way (Eight of Cups).
Notice too that the masculine is walking away under the guidance of the moon energy in Eight of Cups. This again reflects his reunification with his feminine aspect, the aspect of intuitive power, esoteric soul connections, an attempt to balance his energies and reformulate his life path based on that balance. While he is not yet with his feminine counterpart in the physical realm (she is a moon), she is a strong presence guiding him by means of his heart even through the dark of night when he is alone.
It is interesting to note that the 9 of Cups (not in this reading) is where the masculine achieves his own cups. Once he achieves that, he will able to access true happiness (10 of Cups) on his own terms, and not on the terms of his old morphic field/relationships/society. In 10 of Cups, not only does he achieve that happiness through his own powers of manifestation, but he is also united to his feminine with whom he is able to manifest children and a legacy.
when I first met you, I was startled you had what I thought was only mine and when I showed you your beautiful light, you thanked me, uncanny, I laughed, responding with a question, wondering which of us is the mirror of the other.
when I did deeply fall in love with him, I found myself hidden in ancient tunnels, and I panicked that I might be forever lost in darkness I screamed but with careful beauty that I might not scare him further far away and should he run faster than a bitter wind I wrote him poems about the fresh gentle breeze, that he might too with ease abide the storms, and brave infernal air with simple love songs

day like today when my mind is too busy to rest, stirred and hurried in unexpected circumstance busy catching rain drops, drops of blood, tears drop yet I cannot keep what does not want to be kept, hands open fingers wide to let it all escape outside still I keep close to my heart the place we had found enfolded in our time, in a strange uncanny space, soul-shocked lungs had forgotten how to breathe never knew how until I began to breathe with you wide plains where we lay beneath the double suns songs as snow shimmering dazzles us in its solemn falling, falling softly like the love we forget to see your hurried mind stealing quick too far from me.
she looked upon the grand castle she had built, years as layers of stones strong, fixed, sure now complete with everything in proper place beautiful and triumphant against bluest skies but it no longer had any need of her fine craft and so she would walk outside along the roads looking for a soul that might show her new ways to see something other than castles and clear skies but no one would approach her except bird and mice so she quickly took to strange valleys and hills then trails haphazard of the nearby shady forest trees giving crowded comfort to her loneliness as the summer sun played with the dancing shades until winter cast shadows shaped stiff and rigid and she would conceal herself holding heat within especially in the afternoons of winter she loved when the sun would without regret tearless depart leaving her alone in dark despair, heart beating in both fear and desire to have him lost to her just so she could feel the passion deep longing for the sun that always returns but never remains.
the messages are increasing their volume, I always heard them but never listened, for I thought they were mere thoughts just thinkings rattling inside my head maybe from my father or from my mother perhaps an old friend I never saw again reflecting echo of a time that’s passed still riding the waves of my endless sea accumulating as the voices I’d dismissed until all songs became a single lonely one angels, devils, spirits, guides, and God one they’d seem and what they seemed to be was the thought they were a singular Me.
Goddess energy, moon goddess energy, the divine feminine: all of these labels are common terms within the twin flame collective. It is truly inspiring to see women returning to their sense of power and beauty. I myself have spent many years working in a very masculine profession – software engineering – and I would often struggle in my attempt to be more like the “guys”. I was expected to be like them in order to compete for the same jobs, salary, bonuses, etc. It seemed to me to be the only way. And I watched other women around me grow hard, powerful, willful, unbending. But for me – and I am sure many of them – it was an uncomfortable, albeit profitable, undertaking. But it never truly felt like “me”.
Fast forward to the present. I, like many other men and women, find myself on the twin flame journey. However, we all know how most of the awakened ones in this twin flame journey are the women. After all, the men seem to be the ones running away from this connection out of fear, attachment, or limited awareness of how profound and life changing this connection is.
As a result of this perception of the sleeping male beauty, many twin flame feminines are choosing to go it alone. They are choosing to stand in their power by discovering who they are, what they want out of life, and how they are going to be of service to humanity. They are collectively supporting each other in what appears to be a community of women, a nation of the matriarchy, a return to the power of the self proclaimed goddess, free and unbounded by masculine templates, restrictions, and requirements, all the things that made me and other women so uncomfortable in both work and social situations.
But what if this was all an illusion? What if the female is still bounded by the illusions of the reality she believes she has awakened to? What if the masculine isn’t actually less asleep than she is. What if she is the one who is still the sleeping beauty and that she just hasn’t allowed the masculine to find her, not because he just doesn’t get it yet and is slow, but because the feminine is supposed to provide the groundwork for the masculine. Support, not blame and criticism is what is required here. But so many women in the collective have been giving up and have surrendered, saying that they will take this journey without their divine masculines. Many have been doing this for many, many years. And many have been calling this surrender.
What if it isn’t surrender that many are doing. Based on this reading, it appears as if instead of surrendering, many women have been using their own power to deny the masculine theirs.
Spirit is revealing to me that this is in fact the case. There are many feminines in the collective who are taking their own self empowerment too far; so far that the masculine doesn’t even have a chance.
Let us see what Spirit might be trying to tell us.
The layout is simple of this spread is simple. I have drawn two rows of seven cards. The First row uses the Rider-Waite deck and indicates the main message of this spread. The second Row uses the Energy Oracle Deck by Sandra Anne Taylor and simply confirms, strengthens or clarifies the first row.
The topic of this message is Moon Goddess Energy. We have the The Moon card in the first row and the Goddess of the Moon card in the second. We couldn’t be more clear on what Spirit is trying to tell us.
The first card I drew is The Moon. It also shows up as the Goddess of the Moon card in the second row. Before I proceed, let us just get a little background on the meaning of The Moon card.
The Moon card in the Rider-Waite deck is placed after the The Star and before The Sun. The Star indicates renewal, hope, new beginnings. The Star displays a naked feminine being guided by the great Star, a masculine principle of the night sky. She is lead by him. He gives her light so that she might carefully poor the water into the earth, to create rivers, lakes, oceans, seas perhaps. Now in The Moon card that woman has become a goddess of illumination, imagination, duality, dreams, and possibilities. She is the goddess of intuition. She inspires power into the realm of the dream and inspiration. She has the power to conceive of what even might seem impossible. However, she cannot manifest without the Sun. Her light is his light reflected. The Sun is the masculine principle in his full glory. A child is in the Sun card while the feminine moon is now hidden from view. Both the masculine and the feminine have worked together to create this child of joy, wonder, and happiness. The emphasis is on together.
Now in our spread, The Sun card is absent. All we see is the moon. And we even see two of them, one in the first row and the second in the next row! Instead of the Sun card, we see the Fool reversed (which incidentally includes the sun). The masculine is being exposed to the power of the dream, illusion, new possibilities, and intuitive creativity: all energies that are required before manifestation. But the Fool reversed indicates that the masculine, instead of being encouraged to discover this strange new world, to risk it all to be in it and to create from within it, he is literally made to be the Fool, who doesn’t know what he is doing, where to begin. He is in overwhelm and will very likely give up. The feminine in her extreme power becomes an uncontrollable volatile power. She is beautiful and terrible at the same time and he is consequently both attracted and repelled. He feels he is being set up for failure, and she is becoming exasperated with him. And the more exasperated she becomes, the more volatile and beautiful and terrible she appears: she is always increasing her power as the masculine begins to recede and step away. Thus, we have the Action card reversed. There is no action, no manifestation, no progress in the union between the two on earth. Separation begins. The horses run away in fear.
The reversed Nine of Wands continues this story, as the masculine, no matter what he does, no matter how much energy he manages to muster and attempt to cultivate in the soil, he will never be able to giver her what and how she wants it. She is moving too rapidly and becoming powerful too quickly. He cannot keep up. It is like trying to chase and tame a tornado. Her own transformation in this twin flame journey is happening at such an accelerated pace, that he will not be able to keep up with her enough to feel like he can get anything out of it. And so we have the Cornucopia card. Her power, her gifts, the depth of her light and love is clearly abundant to him. But he is overwhelmed. His only choice is to abandon his post.
And so we then have the reversed Two of Cups. Now the upright Two of Cups points to a relationship that is on equal footing, both are offering their cups of equal size. Both are honoring each other. They are in love. But since this is reversed, there is division between the two. The division is the infamous “separation” of the twin flame dynamic as mentioned above. This separation is usually blamed upon the runner of the two and usually the masculine is perceived as the one who is doing the running. But Spirit is telling us that the cause of separation is within the powers of both. But note the Man Holding a Heart card. This card indicates that the masculine loves his feminine. The separation is not due to lack of love, but simply a lack of balance in this space and in this time. The only way for separation to not happen is if the energies of both are balanced: the feminine providing and empowering the creative and potential energy of the union, and the masculine providing the work and manifestation of that union. The masculine must be given space and time to complete his work. He needs this. She needs to let him do that. The feminine’s close relationship to intuition and dreams allows her to see so many possibilities and avenues and options. – and very quickly. This is the reason why she can become too demanding, impatient, and frustrated with the masculine. The masculine is about grounding her energy, choosing something and manifesting it deeply and in a way that it will last forever. It is very slow going not because he is lazy or awakened, but because work takes lots of time and energy in this third dimensional reality. He is not interested in chasing dreams like rainbows, but choosing one and making it stick and remain on the earth. But if the feminine is imbalanced, she will overwhelm the masculine, not allowing him to even get started. She becomes a tidal wave upon his shore, ever removing the sandcastles he begins to build. She will not allow him the time and space to manifest the heaven on earth she wants.
It is important to note that the feminine is more aware of the name and nature of this twin flame connection, because she can see it in its potential, in its dream state, in its infancy. But she will not get anywhere without manifestation in union on earth today or tomorrow in this life. In that sense, she is just as misguided as the masculine is, but in a different way. She doesn’t fully understand her large role in causing the separation- yet.
Let us continue to look.
The next card is the Six of Wands. The Six of Wands shows a man upon a horse who is apparently celebrating his own victory. This is the false victory that the feminine celebrates when she feels her own power within herself and within the feminine community. It is false simply because of the context of this card. It is upright because she believes it is in fact true, and she tells herself that she is somehow more in tune and more awakened than her masculine counterpart. The Fifth Chakra reversed card in the second row indicates that this in fact the lie and that the feminine suffers an imbalance in her throat chakra. The victory can never manifest through her mere words. The lack of victory could never be made more clear than the next card. Until the feminine removes herself from the he vs she, us vs them polarity, the separation will continue.
The Emperor reversed is a powerful statement about the position of the masculine energy inside the world of the divine feminine. He has been completely turned upside down. This card indicates a breakdown of the masculine will and power – the power to manifest in the world, the power to make things happen, the power to procreate with the feminine. Again, the separation and wild nature of the feminine has made this impossible for him. Even if he wants to, even if he longs to be with her, he feels scared, overwhelmed and terrified of doing her wrong. He prefers to go it alone, and of course, in the process he diminishes his own power, as he strays further and further from his own power which must receive energy from his feminine in order to blossom. She in turn, as seen through the “All Tied Up” card reversed has been set free. In fact, both have been set free and both of them are dis-empowered as a result. The wide separation between the masculine and the feminine always leads to extreme behavior within both, that is destructive to both and to the world. For those who are interested, there is a tragic play written by Euripides called The Bacchae which deals with this very issue when the women become seduced by the wild Dionysus. They abandon their feminine roles in civilization for the wild. The consequences are catastrophic both for man and woman.
The reversed Three of Swords illuminates the end and purpose of all of this separation, namely, to heal the feminine’s broken heart – and the masculine’s as well. The separation is for healing the pain caused by each other upon each other. This is why waiting for your twin to return without doing the healing work will lead to prolong separations and prolonged agony. The Door to Romance is currently shut during this healing process because having these two powerful energies together when they are at such extremes in their powers will cause them to destroy each other, and not only each other but all those close to them and even the world.
I am grateful that Spirit has communicated this message to me, as it reveals the power and beauty of the twin flame separation. Many find it painful and difficult, but we only do so when we are not busy discovering who we are and why we are where we are at this time and place. You are already in union with your twin. There is no true separation except in the way it manifests on this earth in this three dimensional reality. This is just the work we have to do to make the union happen. Feminines need to become more aware of the nature of their own power, not in order to only improve self worth and become cheerleaders for feminine power. Twin flame is not just about self realization, but it is also about self-moderation and balancing of our own inner masculine and feminine powers. Self awareness, awareness of what we are doing, who we are as feminines, who we are as masculines, is key to awakening. And the majority of us – if not all of us – are not completely awakened yet. We are still mostly asleep in our beauty. But we are learning, we are learning to balance and to grow and still maintain that balance. That is the tricky part. It is easy to indulge ourselves in our own power and quickly declare a victory. Let’s try to help each other avoid that and instead remove the need for victory over anything. We are just on a journey, a journey to acquire balance, love,poise and beauty, and most of all, union with our beloved on this blessed Earth.
