you don’t need money to start your business

I’m serious. any other thought is an excuse.

a few thoughts on the above.

I literally launched Healing Elaine® while I was in housing court. literally. a lot of people (who don’t know me) have questioned my path, my success, my supposed handouts or “luck”, because they do not know me or the facts and some have said that I make things “look easy”. things are never easy. at least not the things that pertain to our destiny, or walking into our destiny itself. I also want to make clear how valid, equally important and powerful our destiny may be simply by existing — we are often subject to thinking or believing that we have to “achieve” in order to matter, and that is simply not the case. although I fall partially into that category and it is something I work on within myself, I also DO know that my path is specific — and it simply happens to involve tangible “achieving”. oh how I have wished, many times while on this planet, to be able to be “normal” – to live a life and walk through a life in which I do not feel the internal pressure or desire to live out a specific purpose. but, that fire has been there since I was 18 months. I exactly remember knowing and feeling a fire, as a toddler, in my bedroom during playtime. this specific life-force within me — despite all of the twists and turns and horror I have dealt with in my life — has never left me in terms of reminding me that it was/is there to contend with for outer world purpose no matter what I do. and I suppose a lot of that fire/”drive”/life-force has much to do with where I am today. but let me get back to my point.

if you have read any of my eBooklets or much of my blog, you will get a feel for my path. I have “failed”, hundreds of times, at hundreds of things. I felt like a failure when, after a 5 star education, I could not keep the lights on in my apartment. but, I also knew my challenges — internally and externally — which contributed to that, but perhaps most importantly, the RECOGNITION that perhaps my “failures” had more to do with communicating to me my purpose versus standing in front of me as punishment. once I began to move past the self-shame and guilt around my difficulties, the lights turned on – literally and figuratively. I struggled for years and years after college — part of this was in thanks to VERY clear and bad/sadistic messaging I received early on and throughout my entire life around taking care of myself and deserving ANYTHING at all — to make ends meet. to eat, to keep a roof over my head, and to accomplish the things I wanted to accomplish. since I was not allowed free rent, I constantly had to think on my feet. I was too busy, and under to much pressure, to be “uninspired” (though I certainly had periods of “WHAT DO I DO NEXT?”). and every year there seemed to be a challenge or road block of which I had to conquer, for the purpose of my inner world as well as outer world, in order to “initiate” to the next level in my life. the Universe always seemed to allow me to get JUST FAR ENOUGH before it slammed me with another lesson. this continued to develop my own spirit as well as character and personal understanding of myself, the world, and how those two things combined. with all of that said, it was 2008 when I dove deep into understanding how metaphysics and the intangible realms would actually fit into my life — a matter I had been debating since 2003. I was broke, had just gone through a breakup, and I was outlining 3 major things for “the rest of my life” each day on paper: my creative career, my healing career, and my business/entrepreneurship career. I literally wrote out my first, middle, and last name on paper each day — each name corresponded to the part of me that I would work toward. since NO ONE of us is unilateral or linear (aka fits in a box), of course I had more than one category. in fact, I think we could all be broken up into at least 3 said categories, relative to our personality/desire/purpose. for me, in 2008, I began to try to boil each category/pot. and, kind of at the same time — until each one came to sort of a simmer. this is to say that in 2008 I outlined my acting career, my healing and writing career, and my career as a producer/entrepreneur — a combination of the first two names, with a little something extra.

I started it all by finding a way to keep that roof over my head. this also meant no more corporate work (I left that behind in 2006), so I had to think about what I could tolerate as well as what I enjoyed. so, I worked 3 jobs around that time; I waited tables and bartended, I did a ton of stand-in and photo double work on tv and film (alongside many one-off odd jobs such as a look-book model for various clothing brands, a Pucci body-paint model at Bar Mitzfahs, etc), and I did small production jobs pro-bono so that I could start building a resume in that territory. I probably worked 20 different jobs during any given quarter of the year. I also started to see people for healings — at that time, I didn’t know what to call “it”/the healings, so I would say “ok come over at 6pm. we will walk to the east river, talk through your problems, and I will work on your energy field”. and I would do that. I started with friends and acquaintances. I would talk to them for a couple of hours and lay my hands on them. I would hear their outcomes and be astounded at how quickly things moved for them. but it was nothing new — I had done this sort of “thing” my entire life already! I just wasn’t getting paid for it. I juggled the latter with all of the above, and was always still stressed about how to pay the rent. I was also not ready to announce myself in a healing capacity, though many other wonderful healers or intuitives who I had spoken with around that time continued to suggest to me that I do. I was not ready to come out of that closet though (mostly unsure of how to present it all), and I was gathering my data to do so. I wanted to create a baseline, no matter how big or small — it just had to feel steady to me — of experience in enough categories to “launch” myself. I attended a number of “new age” events within which I learned hard lessons about “spiritual” and “new age” communities — basically I was/am not a fan and learned that just because someone has an “ability” (we all do, by the way), it did/does not make them a better or noble or even good person. it just made them a person. during this time I also focused all of my efforts on landing a real tv role, and I did — I landed on a soap opera just as I had lit an intention candle for every night for 2 years. alongside this tv role, I beat the pavement, waking up for 5am tv set calls and worked 16 hour days for my unseen roles as a stand-in or photodouble. I rented my studio (a SHARE) to strangers from craigslist and thankfully no one was crazy…I was being looked out for by the man upstairs (call it God, the Universe, whatever you like). I put in the grind and I knew that I had about 2 years in each “category” of me until I could start piecing an actual business together. I might note as well, that while I was doing all of this, it was all on faith. I had no “proof” that my life would work out. every day my faith was tested. in many ways. IT STILL IS.

by 2009 I had fully achieved my acting goal for that time, moved away from that somewhat to focus on my consulting business, and started to figure out how to tie in healing/helping people. each time I got to where I wanted to go, the floor would drop out from under me again. the tests were endless. I would be backed up on rent, unable to eat, or whatever. but never once did I think “I need (a lot of) money to start a business”…I just knew that I needed to keep walking. after all, I had succeeded on very little to nothing, as well as very little support from my outer world. in 2011, when I first came out of the Healing Elaine® closet, I ordered my business cards that just said “Elaine” on them; I had a stack for “Aryn Elaine” for my creative pursuits, a stack that said “Elaine” for my metaphysical/alternative medicine/healing pursuits, and a stack that said NYRA Productions™ for my entrepreneurship/business entity. it was also around this time that I was still working several jobs (I, at this point in 2011, had a retail job, part-time liquor/wine sales jobs, was in a rock band, and had my own consulting company gigs) that barely put the rent together. I wondered when things would ever get easier. I prayed every day. I practiced the art of surrender and being present, daily — not anything new, since I spent most of my early childhood exactly in that state of prayer. friends suggested that I aim lower in terms of lowering my standards for living — that I move out of Manhattan (where I KNEW I needed to be), in order to afford more. I refused — in my mind, I couldn’t understand why someone’s goal would be to regress versus level up — I simply needed to do better, and that is what I focused on…while living and being where I felt I needed to be. I continued to rent out my tiny space to kind strangers and share it with them and my animals. I continued to work several jobs. and volunteer. I just. kept. walking. and then, when I was finally internally ready to “launch” “Elaine” to the world, I found office space by bartering my consulting skills. there were times in which I literally could not afford a subway card, and I had to walk 70 blocks to my office to see patients. it was also again during this time, that I was late on rent one-too-many times, that my landlord had had it with me and continued to find ways to bring me into housing court. THIS is the time that my business exploded, because things could not get much more difficult for me, and so I surrendered fully to the notion that what lives within us can not be destroyed — and when we leap, the net will appear. the net, of course, being support, money, or whatever. so I leapt — in my heart, in my mind, and with no concept of needing “money”.

I continued all of the above, every day, like a solider. I also knew that building an ACTUAL client base (this was pre-instagram, thankfully, and no I would NEVER have “purchased” a company on such a platform anyhow) was crucial to moving along. I knew that actual human relationships are what build any business, and I needed them. so I kept doing it. I kept working. from the quality calls that came in off of my crappy free wordpress website with an ugly background that I did not even know how to change. I spent hours per day making sure that I was visible online. I left business cards all over Manhattan. I walked. I starved some days. I felt like a LOSER in housing court on those several occasions (for anyone who ever questions the history of my details I have endless embarrassing documents of proof) and just breathed through it as lawyers and judges literally shamed me in front of the courtroom. I knew what I had inside of me. and I knew that one day they would know it too.

so I was still broke. but after a time, I began to accrue a reputation – not so much online, but offline…the most important kind of solid reputation to build. I was developing a cool army of wonderful people who knew what I did and we cared about one another and our respective paths. and it just kept going from there.

what does a person need money for when starting a business? I mean, really? you don’t need money for an idea — that should be the whole point of giving birth to a business: it comes from within you. you don’t need money for space — you can barter your other skills for that space, or find a way to barter with your idea as it should be good enough or your reasons for bartering your idea should be good enough (where there is a will with integrity, there is ALWAYS a way). and you don’t need money for marketing — businesses are not built on marketing!!! sure, marketing GROWS a business, but if you start without a business, you are paying for the illusion of a business. and as you will witness in the near-future, [they] are most certainly not built on social media (a massive fallacy that is going to crumble). businesses are built on 1) ideas 2) thinking outside of the box when there are no resources — because again, resources are a smoke and mirror for the real work that needs to be done 3) success cases/testimonials. if you are selling a product, or you have an idea for a product like many friends of mine, then SELL THAT PRODUCT before you have it. yes, there is a way to do this. it’s called create one sample. ONE SAMPLE. i.e. one coffee mug. one healing session. one face mask serum. JUST ONE…and sell it to somebody. you can be living in your grandmother’s basement (hopefully not rent free — because the temptation to become lazy will be there!) and do this! you don’t need all of the outer-world “fixings” and illusions of “success” to do this. what is stopping you? an excuse, I tell you.

I have had close friends and acquaintances who are otherwise really intelligent people. they went to the ivies, or whatever. they are not the ones who have access to old money or any money (like so many of these “venture capital” firms started by 20 year olds out of xyz sexy University — that’s not necessarily called starting a company, that’s called calling up connections and potentially putting on a farce…and it happens…). and they are so full of excuses (bottom line: they are afraid – like any human would be, but at a certain point we must move beyond this and stop the fake complaining…such as when our difficulties finally and actually outweigh our fear!), it is amazing. I have said to them, “what would you do if you had that 10k? or that 100K?” and usually they have NOTHING to say that they could not ALREADY start that company with — with ZERO dollars.

I started Healing Elaine® during the hardest years of my life. spiritually, emotionally, and certainly tangibly — and perhaps that destruction is the best kind of “luck” that I could have had in launching an incredible business. and the truth is, I still struggle. when I began making what I call “grownup money” — i.e. I could pay the rent, help out friends and other small business and make donations to animal non-profits and such, I actually put EVERY SINGLE DOLLAR back into my business. to grow it. to protect it (with legal, clerical and logistical services). I never saved. I maxed out all of my credit cards. I have always accrued debt to keep the machine moving, and I did it all in the name of my purpose, my business, my “destiny”. I don’t regret any of it. the biggest investment that we can make is in ourselves yes, but also as well as the services of others who can help us grow. MY CURRENCY WAS AND IS MY SERVICE. I also invest a ton of money into every single session that I do now — because I want it to be the best experience possible. I don’t cut corners and I don’t worry about going broke and being homeless — that has already happened. I can always be broke, but I will never be poor. and there is nothing that is left to be taken from me in this world, literally or figuratively. so the one thing that can never be taken is my business. your business. because a business is not only an intangible at heart, an idea, a service, but a testimony to your path and destiny on this planet. even if you were to lose “it” all today or start from nothing tomorrow, your business would still be there. and you do not need money for that.

Healing Elaine®’s PE™: Pediatric Energy™ (updates)


logo by Shamona Stokes

last October 2017 when I launched PE™ (Pediatric Energy™), I posted about my desire and discussions with quantitative medicine and clinical MDs to establish wellness initiatives for children. as this is not my only area of focus, it has taken some time and marinating to expand upon. in addition, it has taken me time to meet and vet professionals best-suited to develop collaborations or partnerships with on this front. I have big dreams for energy work and wellness as it pertains to children! while the collaborations and partnerships (spanning several industries) I am most interested in take shape, and I continue to have successful (and frankly for me, these are often my most exciting cases) fertility cases, PE™ as a whole has grown — conceptually and tangibly. in short, PE™ uses dialogue, meditation, reiki and earth elements to balance a mind-body-spirit connection for children.

upon my exit from college, for a time, and then again throughout 2011 and 2012, I worked with handicapable and underserved children. some of it was straight pro-bono / volunteer work, and some of it was salaried employee work depending on the timing. early on, I was a marketing professional and I spent some of my free time with those with disabilities. later on, I worked as a volunteer alongside the resident psychologist at one organization and assisted him with curriculum development and tangible execution of such. after that, I was a salaried Habilitation Specialist and classroom teacher for adolescents and adults (all the while launching Healing Elaine®).

when I was in full swing with private one-on-one sessions for Healing Elaine®, I began attracting fertility cases right away. as I successfully worked with dozens of specific mystery cases in which medical professionals had already been on the scene for, the bridge between medical and spiritual became even clearer for me. I began to understand further, the dissonance between the sovereign energy of a hopeful parent and soon-to-be incarnate soul of their child — and how to bridge that. the same was true for the children I had worked with in the past as well as children of patients of mine or children AS patients of mine: there was/is a gap between their energy field and that of their immediate caretakers, or the person(s) whom they spend the most time with. effectively bridging that gap is paramount to all things wellness for the child.

one might refer to the above gap simply as communication. we communicate in different ways, to one another, all day long. the most important part of communication is not verbal. so, then, what are we saying to one another — to our children and vice versa — all day long? HOW are we saying things to one another, non-verbally and otherwise? energy is transferred in a multitude of ways. these ways are important to understand so that we may best manage them hence our energy/wellness and that of our children. and this is where my work comes in.

although it looks different on the surface (I probably won’t have a deeply philosophical or psychological conversation with a child, whereas it’s MUCH of what I do with an adult during a session), I am still bridging the gap for them to positively isolate their energy field while also acclimating and then bridging to the energies around them. while these are mainly trade secrets (and I have an article coming out about my work with children, so there may be a bit more info in there and before my website goes up, which is currently a redirect: www.pediatricenergymedicine.com), I will say that children are more sensitive than ever and they absorb everything around them at lightning paces. given this, it is important to connect them to 1) their own thoughts/beliefs 2) their creativity 3) ionizing and earth elements.

now more than ever, and I explain this due to simple human evolution, children are drawn to and NEED high-vibrating aka love vibrations. this can best be expressed through an emotional or non-verbal state, from one person to the next. this is why animals and children are so drawn to one another. as the earth’s energy increases and speeds up, so does the natural set point of the intrinsic mechanics of a newly made human being (child). I was initially surprised at the number of vegan (due to a natural aversion or intolerance to meat and dairy) kids I met. if we think about this in basic energetic terms, there is less density in plants and live foods. this lends itself, also, to wellness. along with food choices, I also noticed an increased interest in earth elements like water, stones and crystals. the babies and children drawn to these things aren’t on trend; they are on kinesiology. and they are going to lead the wellness movement beyond trend…

in the past year alone, the calls I receive from parents about their child and their interest in me working with their child have increased three-fold. I am not sure whether this is a result of them reading about my PEM™ service that I officially launched one year ago, or whether the burgeoning wellness sector as it relates children is to thank. it is my belief that as we outgrow old ways of doing things in many fields/industries, we will open further and also rapidly, to developing wellness and mindfulness programs for our youth — starting as early as possible. meditation, and things like yoga, and creative-mind nurturing are crucial for children. energy work in general, for example reiki, is great for babies (even fertility) and children, but the right practitioner and match is CRUCIAL. it is still like the Wild Wild West out there in terms of the fact that ANYONE can call themselves an energy worker. we need to be sure that energies are actually being balanced — not incorrectly absorbed, on either side. and while the good news is that energy medicine as a concept and field does continue to grow and expand, new and vetted structures will assemble themselves so that we may not only offer but continue building a bridge for our children who will eventually go on to lead our planet in a very short time.

as always, please see my about and bio sections, as well as get a feel for my blog if you are interested in reaching out for any service. lately when I work with a child, it has been through developing a program first with their parent or caretaker for that parent or caretaker (hence working with the entire family dynamic in tandem) — and those are born from long, specialized one-on-one sessions with an individual. we may address and then explain a variety of concerns and solutions for things like autism, Asperger’s, or other diagnoses or undiagnosed dispositions. it is my desire to continue working with collaborators (brands, companies and individuals) who are invested in kids in any positive way: through positive imaging, branding and messaging, through educational reform, through wellness program implementation in schools and institutions, through unique workshops, and through simply spreading the word that children and wellness are actually synonymous with one another. now watch, as the wellness sector as it relates to children explodes in the best way.

Healing Elaine®’s TEM®: The Energy Mavericks™

logo by Shamona Stokes; photo by Anita Saini

TEM®: The Energy Mavericks™

Intuitive advising & healing for small & medium-sized businesses, & Fortune 500-1000 companies in 3 steps

The Energy Mavericks™ (TEM®) is my first more public program by Healing Elaine®, targeted to increase efficacy and bottom line revenue for small, medium & Fortune 500-1000 businesses of all kinds via intuitive advising & healing. This program is also especially effective for auction houses, retail spaces, entertainment and hospitality venues in which there is a lot of foot traffic or virtual human footprint; just because we can’t see it, doesn’t mean it isn’t there. specific case studies and testimonials coming soon

TEM® advises for and heals businesses of any size in 3 simple and important steps:

1) Advising: employees – should they stay or should they go? I will walk through your list of questionables, help you understand the energy of each person as they relate directly to your business and to your staff as a whole. I can literally look at someone’s *birthname and tell you exactly what their energy is and what they bring to the table. This type of advisory work is something I have done for over 2,000 individuals on corporate (relative to their dealings with individuals both senior and junior to them), interpersonal and general relationships baseis. Through the above, I help you to increase efficacy and output (revenue).

2) Clearing: all objects contain an energetic frequency. For the same reason you would throw out an old shirt or couch that reminds you of a negative or outworn person or experience, the same should be said for objects that clutter your income-generating physical space. I will look at each object, and the position/organization of such. We will discard, bury (hey, sometimes we need to bury things right back into the earth or throw them in the ocean to transmute their energy!), burn (enough said) or re-position objects in order to maximize the flow of each object as they work with the tangible and intangible meridian lines of energy running all throughout your space (similar to how cell phones and computers transmit signals — so do non-electronic 3D objects via their energy signature). I will make suggestions for EMF (electromagnetic frequency) blockers to assist the mood and overall health and well-being of you and your employees. I will also look at lighting, color and general decor that pertains to the so-called feng shui (open, unobstructed flow of energy) of the physical space that is tied to your abundance in this life. This clearing will increase the energetic flow that will impact the mood and performance of your staff/employees, resulting in increased efficacy and output.

3) Blessing: the sum frequency or emotion (energy in motion) of any space is a combination of the people and objects in it — as well as the people and objects who were in it. Past or present, your space deserves a blessing that will impact everyone and everything in it. I work in a non-denominational capacity, and my focus is transmuting dense or dark energy. After taking steps 1) and 2) above, a blessing reinforces such work. I will work with ionizing (essentially separating like oil and water what does and what does NOT work — so don’t be afraid if someone abruptly quits the next day, as I will explain all of the potential responses to our work). I will suggest actual ionizing materials that transmit certain signals (did you know that we each have quartz in our cell phones and computers, which transmit signals?) around your physical space. I will also burn things in the space that are aligned with the desire to ionize. You might think of 3) similar to what an exterminator does on a pest control run. There are all kinds of pests, tangible and intangible, created by emotions and consciousnesses. This blessing is the sealant, so-to-speak, of 1) and 2). This blessing will create the greatest sustainable impact possible from 1) and 2).

For inquiries, please first read my Bio, About and Testimonials sections on my website. Then, please call 917-985-1221 and leave a message stating you are interested specifically in my TEM® service.

so, you take issue with the Kardashians? the joke is on you.

so, you take issue with the Kardashians? the joke is on you.


photo by Babita Patel, April 2017 – blog post from May 2016

when we are obsessively focused upon someone or something, the joke is always on us. it doesn’t matter whether this focus is negative or positive. we might come up with many “logical” reasons as to “why” xyz person or persons “affect us” or “others” (there is no such thing as being concerned that someone or something is affecting others if we do not first believe that it somehow affects us) and use that as our excuse for focus. what we are missing, during our “logical” over-focus either negatively or positively upon a person(s), is that 1) everything we see/focus upon is a reflection of ourSELF and ourselves – period. the collective reflection. no matter how great in number, size, power, etc that person or thing is. 2) everything we see/focus upon is an OPPORTUNITY to learn. but because many of us live so much in the ego, in the 3d realms, we can’t hear our own truth or see the bigger picture.

since forever ago, people and ideas have been in place in society thanks to the Universe in order to test us individually. and, conversely, the people put in place in order to test us have their own tests. it is never a one way street. these tests grow and expand us so that we may look within for greater (real) happiness. the Kardashians, as a modern-day example, represent many things, as well as excellent tests that exist for a myriad of reasons. for one, they test the human ego in terms of helping us to know that we are “enough” as we are. when we resent something in the 3d ego world: looks, status, money and the like, we are resenting the very opportunity within ourselves to ever achieve peace and balance with that “thing” we resent. we can not resent something and receive it at the same time! I have had friends who complain CONSTANTLY about money, and the “1%”. do you think those friends will EVER be happy or even stable within their own personal confines as long as they are complaining because they are negatively focused? no (it is also irrelevant, by the way, “right” or “wrong” when we are overly-focused whether we are negatively overly-focused or positively overly-focused, it doesn’t matter – over-focus is a state of being in which we are taken completely out of our core SELF, which is where the focus should be. on the SELF. otherwise we are just spinning our wheels). do I agree with the issues that some of my friends in the above example raise? maybe. also maybe not. do I share their same negative focus? no way! this negative focus isn’t even a REAL negative focus, by the way…it is a form of self-escapism. as long as we can BLAME another person for our issues, we get to be like convenient Christians or Catholics! – we don’t have to do the self WORK.

when we look at the example of the Kardashians, we see a few obvious things at first: we see physical aesthetics, we see riches, we see fame, and we see attention. when we are out of alignment with our own story, those things take on different meanings to each of us. if we feel we are never “enough” in one or all of these categories that we covet, comment on negatively or obsess over, guess what? the joke is on us to throw shade or hate! what we should be doing is THANKING these people, the Kardashians or whomever in the like capacity, for highlighting what does not work and is stuck inside of US. NOTHING can make us feel badly about ourselves unless we already agree to that thing we say makes us feel bad. no one can make us feel bad about ourselves unless we already agree with them – whether they are saying it directly, or we perceive them to be saying it. in a way, modern-day social media is doing us a favor; it is reflecting back lots of “ideals” to help us wake up and contend with our own inner demons. so whether we “idolize” someone or “hate” them, the joke is on us.

let me explain what I mean by the word joke. I say it is a joke, because the over-focus of people I hear obsessively complain about or obsessively envy the Kardashians and others in their position, is exactly the blessing in disguise. what these complainers or copycats are getting either way is a match in the outer world to an inner belief that they need to contend with. if you ask me, the so-called negativity of social media, reality TV and so on is part of our planet’s awakening. those of us who are able to realize that the reason we focus negatively upon another person or persons is born out of our own inner lack are in a great position to wake up. those of us who are able to realize that the reason we focus in an idolizing or copycat fashion is born out of our own need to see how amazing WE already are, are in a great position to wake up. again: either focus, negative or positive, is focus and we get what we focus on. I have said this in many other blog posts: where attention goes, energy flows. if you don’t like that thing you are so focused upon, ask yourself WHY you are so focused upon that thing, and how that thing might actually SERVE you.

as a side note, and kind of an unnecessary one to explaining how our focus is born out of our own inner world and how it is actually a gift or blessing in disguise, I will say that the person or thing that we are so focused upon has its OWN lessons. we might think that something or someone who drives us to feel so strongly inside has infinite power or power over us in some way. of course that is not true. ALL THINGS ARE RELATIVE. all blessings are relative. how could we assume that, for example, all of their relative success/access/etc (whatever we want to deem as important to us) does not come with an equal amount of tests of its own? we assume that life is easy for those we covet, envy or focus upon, then again, the joke is on us. the Universe is built in terms of relativity. for every huge blessing, there are lessons of initiation around it. who is to say that, despite whether we feel negatively or positively about the Kardashians or anyone else like them, we would ever be able to handle their blessings given the laws of relativity? it is suffice to say that MANY of us could NEVER handle what they have, EVEN IF they themselves have created it or it has been created for them. we do not ever know the exact reasons or divine plans the Universe has for certain people and matters in the press, other than the fact that for “better” or “worse” they are here to serve us and reflect our individual and collective issues. now, whether self-perpetuated or not in a public fashion, that’s a huge energetic responsibility these people have. again: this is a neutral and energetic perspective, not a dissection of people or events. when we ZOOM OUT in this way, we can see the bigger picture and not get wrapped in the tiny details that are, again, designed and there to test us like the joker.

anything or anyone who has ever affected me negatively or positively in my life, I say thank you to it/them. saying thank you inside or directly to them does NOT mean that I always agree with what they have done. but we reach a certain level of self-introspection where we realize that the Universe has actually designed ALL things to help us, if we can figure out what that blessing is. by staying attached or focused upon something or someone in the outside world, we are again being convenient Christians/Catholics. all of the real juice is withIN us. if we dare to exercise our inner divine muscles.

in some ways, I am really glad I did not grow up with social media and even the internet until I was almost an adult. I look at many of today’s millennials and I have no idea whether they are humans or robots. I probably missed this boat by about 8 years. there is such a disconnect between many of their views on the world and mine, simply due to the fact that social media exists. however, I am not suggesting or blaming social media for causing something bad – in fact, it is quite the opposite. if we can see how disconnected we are and how out of touch we are with our higher selves, perhaps only then can a true individual and collective awakening take place. when I see how affected young girls (or even women!) are by electronic devices and the lives of others, I see that what once took lifetimes is happening instantly: ego destruction. the ego must eat us and destroy us in order to be transcended (this is a separate blog, by the way, the impact of social media on our culture).

the best thing we can ever do when something “affects us” individually or collectively, is THANK IT. if you are feeling “but….” or “if…..” or “how…..” during or after reading this blog relative to believing or taking issue with how/why the Kardashians or others like them are in some way harmful to society or to those you know, remember one thing: nothing can negatively affect us unless we have an individual or collective need for that person or thing to “negatively” affect us…and, in doing so, it will ALWAYS be reflecting the very thing we need to heal from within OURSELVES. that, my friends, is called AWAKENING and HEALING. otherwise, the joke is on us.
