2014 Equals a Seven Year

What do we generally have in-store as lessons in the upcoming year with Number Seven (7) for 2014? If you have read these blogs or my book, you would know that Number Seven (7) is more than spirituality as a general term. It is the path to it, or confirmation that one is spiritual or its opposite of a greedy con.

The letters beneath Number Seven (7) are G-P-Y, equaling six word patterns of: (Gypsy - Gypee); (Gyp); (Piggy); (Pig); (Why Gyp) and (Why Pig).

These are all self-explanatory except for (Why Gyp) and (Why Pig). These have two meanings. The first is the path to return to spirituality when asking oneself, "Why do I gyp others? And, Why, am I such a pig or so greedy?" The second meaning refers to one who has a pure heart, successfully surmounting the lessons of the previous six numbers and has never taken the negative path. The existence of these negative traits is almost baffling that one would lie, cheat, or become a filthy (Piggy) to a positive Seven (7).

This Seven (7) year will bring out these traits in general, or it will give the opportunity to overcome the negative aspects to garner the positive side of the number. Seven (7) is transforming number. Those who are already on the positive path will get nothing, but perhaps the challenge of staying positive.

To find your personal number for the year, add your Life Path number to 2014 or Seven (7). This will give you, your personal challenges or lessons for the year.

To find out what your lessons are for your personal number, you may have to buy my book. :-)

Have a wonderful year!

Bring Back the Woodshed

It goes without saying, with restraint. If we can’t do that much to discipline bad kids, at least give them time out when they are young enough to have it embed into their psyches. Do something to rein in bad kids. Some people and pundits seem to think "they’re just teenagers" when three boys beat a thirteen-year-old half to death. No. That was an adult act, not one of some kids playing a childish prank. They were also pushing him to buy drugs. They were drug dealers, not sweet kids.

If this country continues as it is, Idiocracy, the movie will be reality and right around the corner, not centuries off.

When did it become politically incorrect to correct bad and misguided children? I think my generation is to blame. Not me of course. I never had any. But, being a single pet parent, I know that I’d probably have disciplined children too. I always said that I won’t have a spoiled pet. And, since I’m the one who spoils them, I have to be the one who disciplines them from all the spoiling. It works. They know I love them when I shake the squirt bottle or point to the floor for them to get off the counter top. They don’t seem to resent me. We still cuddle. I’m constantly telling them that I love them and following up with action, but not indulging what they should not do.

As an overly-disciplined child, I never minded what I deserved. I minded being disciplined for what a sibling did or what I didn’t do, but was never asked about. It was swing first then send me to my room. It was never about talking to me. I don’t think other children are much different. Children aren’t stupid. But, we can be made stupid. How did I turn out so good? It wasn't therapy alone. I guess, whatever planet I came from, we did it right. If you want to know how I think, see my Token Rock blog under Contributors.

When some kid got the bright idea to sue parents for grounding him, was this the beginning? Funny movies were even made about the subject and kids must have watched. Television writers made it worse. They put words in the mouths of children that they probably would never say when they have children telling off adults. My generation would have had their mouths washed with soap. Making adults the stupid ones in movies over the brilliant child-super heros is a running theme. It sells to the XX generation and their offspring. What’s wrong with simply being good people instead of super heros? It’s time to bring back shows like, Leave It to Beaver.

Were parents bullied and intimidated from doing their jobs as parents when Child Protective Services decided to ensure their jobs by taking children from parents and doing their jobs for them? Or, were parenting procedures curtailed by adults, once children of over zealous parents who didn’t wait for the woodshed, but took out the strap right then and there? They didn’t want to do what was done to them. I know I didn’t ever want to have kids lest I become tempted to abuse my authority.

I do know some in my generation who did have children. They consciously did a 180 to the way they were raised. The results were not good. One friend took her son from the day he was born with her everywhere in a wrap around kind of thing. She took him to concerts while still in the womb to bring him culture early. Everything she did for him was from love. After he was born, I hadn’t seen him until he was a teenager, where I heard him over the phone. I’d called his mother. I heard in the background, "Mother!" She told him, "I’m on the phone." His reply, "I don’t care! I want you now!" OMG! She’d created a little monster. That monster grew up to be an irresponsible adult. My friend and I’d lost touch over decades. I had a dream about her, and some think that means she died. I realized I hadn’t thought about my best friend for decades. How could I do that? Life. Period. I was back on the Internet, so looked her up. It still had her listed in the same city where I last saw her, but without a phone number. I knew that she’d changed her name to the father’s name, though never married him. She didn’t realize that his culture was too restrictive and dominating toward women. While still pregnant she fled back to this country and raised her boy alone.

Only two names came up for the son. One was in London and he was from there. One became an actor and lived in the city where I’d last seen my friend. That made sense, she had a try at it and encouraged him into the arts. He also had her eyes. He’d written on some blog that he was leaving the country and returning to the land of his father because warrants were issued for too many unpaid parking tickets. Over parking tickets? I’d figured that my friend had to have died for him to leave this country and return to his other heritage.

The behavior certainly isn’t as bad as the boys who beat the thirteen-year-old half to death, but it shows lack of responsibility. He was running from facing parking tickets rather than just paying them. His inability to accept responsibility was to that degree. My friend probably took it from him in a misguided attempt to protect him from the world.

I probably would have been that kind of parent too. I was always trying to protect my friends from facing the consequences of their actions that they got themselves into. My cats could only wish I’d spoil them into total rottenness. I’d give friends a tip about some job audition, but warn them of what I’d been through that was negative. It occurred to me that they may not experience what I did. Telling them, might deter them from going. So, either don’t tell them, or don’t warn them needlessly.

Some children of these thirty-something-year-olds are being given no discipline. They don’t have to clean up their messes. Mommy will do it, if she does it at all, having been raised by my generation and overly protected. So cleaning one’s house is too much of a chore, keeping them from doing what they really want to do or listening to their IPods. Some children’s television programs are teaching them that pouting and throwing tantrums on the floor is the way to get what they want. Some children mimic this behavior, and some parents think that this is just fine. Saying, they are just children and will outgrow it, so indulge them.

Oh really? They will only get worse until we are a society of spoiled mediocre idiots, who don’t bother to learn anything, but only mimic behaviors. And, mimic them poorly. But, don’t worry. There are shows like American Idol where unlearned, no-talents can be laughed at for viewers’ amusement.

Bargaining With Our Souls

What can this mean in the grand scheme of things relating to reincarnation and raising our vibrations? When I was three-years-old and reading The Bible in kindergarten parochial school, I said to myself: "The Universe isn’t like this." But, I was smart enough to also tell myself, "I’m three, what do I know? How do I know that?" When I left home at seventeen, I went on journeys to find out how I knew that and what I knew. But, long before I left home, I believed in reincarnation when in that era it was never spoken of by anyone. I’d never heard the word or the concept. I just knew that I knew it existed.

I’m not going to give personal examples as I just had to not pull my punches with someone I love. I hate to not pull my punches and rather be kind when giving criticism. Sometimes, however, It is better to speak up to a friend and lose him than let him lose himself. And, I lost. I knew I would. I’ve learned not to bargain with my soul. I speak my mind after circumspection, and let the chips land where they land. It isn’t pleasant. We who do this have few friends. But, we have real ones.

When someone says, "Don’t YOU talk to ME like that," in the most imperious tone, especially if the person is a three-year-old talking to a two-year-old, one realizes quickly that three-year-old has many karmic lessons to work out. Three-year-olds just don’t come up with this attitude. They are certainly too young to mimic it from parents especially if never exposed to it. To go further, this person is most likely someone who, in a prior life, ruled imperiously over others, perhaps, holding lives in their contemptuous and arrogant hands. With this continued behavior over a lifetime, it is obvious to anyone who can see beyond this world that in some previous life this person enjoyed having power over others.

This person might try to deflect looking directly into the mirror of painful self-reflection by taking the attitude that, "You hurt me!" Never acknowledging his or her own bad behavior to be a factor in others’ attitudes toward him or her. Looking forward at the expense of ignoring the past is a recipe to repeat the mistakes. Someone who does this is running from him or herself and living in denial.

When this person reincarnates, and he or she most likely will, what plans will he or she make in the afterlife for the next physical life if getting the choice?

I suppose that it depends upon which planet is the destination of reincarnation. The Teachers used to say through medium Richard Zenor that this planet Earth is The Dark Star, A Criminal Colony, The Prison Planet, decades before Alex Jones coined the latter name for his website. Are we all prisoners with felonious past lives? I doubt that because earthly prisons have wardens, guards, counselors, medical staff, cooks, etc., to show the criminals how not to be so. At least it should work that way, in a world that is not so screwy.

This planet has evolved to be one that values money, power, and prestige over thriftiness, duty, and humility. I’ve often speculated if the UFOs that some think are our overseers, are so on a very personal level? That they, possibly, keep track on the progress of those whom they send here to this prison?

Before returning to another life on this planet that certainly, for many is not random, are the Returnees bargaining with their souls?

If I get everything I want, I’ll be a good person.  Whatever good means. Maybe the Returnee will even marry just one person, if it’s a soul mate. Because, frankly, no one else would put up with the SOB. The person will even do good works if he or she is noticed and praised by others. If he can’t be in absolute control over the lives of others, can he, please, at least control every aspect of his own life? That’s very "in" and popular with forward thinking people, to be in absolute personal control. He or she doesn’t mean controlling personal actions, but all aspects and circumstances of his or her life. For certainly, this would exemplify godliness.

Let’s say that this person doesn’t become a felon in the current physical expression, but may have been in prior lives. This person is average, doing what he or she thinks will make him or her good by joining in on uplifting practices like becoming certified blessing givers, or such. Apparently, some people can’t be nice just for the sake of it without getting an official diploma to pat themselves on the back. What’s wrong with this? Nothing. But, if the person remains angry, hateful, and mean, what good does he do? In fact, someone practicing alternative medicines like Reiki, are putting his or her negative energy into others when having never released personal subconscious animosities. He or she is not operating from a pure heart. The person’s aura is blending with those of others. This person engages in superficiality to look like a good person rather than simply being a good person. He or she wants everyone to know when doing good deeds so to feel he or she is special and above everyone else. Actual good deeds are ones that are probably never acknowledged.

Getting rid of past anger by honest confrontation, often means that we have to look into that mirror of self-reflection, telling us that we aren’t so nice. We are less than perfect. This hurts. But, it is the only honest thing we can do if we are to progress toward higher dimensions.

One who only wants to live in the present is someone who is running from his or her past. He or she may earn a SIX (6) Attraction Number as one who lives in denial because it is the Subconscious Significancy.

Raising the vibration of this kind of individual is difficult. You can lead a cat to milk, but you can’t make him drink. Especially, when in a position of such power that no one dares tell this Emperor he or she has no clothes.

What if instead of bargaining to get everything our hearts desire, what if we work to be good even when we get nothing of what we tried so hard to achieve? Nothing says we must be irrationally hopeful that we will always achieve every goal we set. Sometimes it is better to move on and dream different dreams. Maybe we won’t get anything that we really want. We remain unloved and in poverty. Maybe we will own our destinies then have them taken away, or have to give them away. Do we let this lower our vibrations and harden our outlook?

I have known very humble people, who were truly inspirations. They had very little of a material life, but enormous spiritual ones.
