Ladies and gentlemen, blog followers and blog readers, I hope and Pray all of you have been enjoying and receiving Prosperous Blessings from reading this series of posts.

It is no coincidence that the timing for the conclusion of this series of blog posts occurs shortly before the busiest time of the year for me.

From the first time I became a full-time professional Psychic, I have found that September through December is the busiest time of the year for me.

However, shortly before the beginning of 2010, I had been Divinely Guided to lead a “Divine Prosperity Event” every month.  The Divine Guidance I had received from Goddess was to lead it on the third Thursday of every month, beginning in January, 2010.

When I began doing that, I found that I had created a Cycle of Prosperity that lasted, pretty much, all year round.  Granted, I still have financially lean periods, but they tend to be fewer and farther between, and they tend to dissipate relatively quickly.

Interestingly enough, while leading a “Divine Prosperity Event” the third Tuesday of every month, I found that a lot of people were forgetting when it was.

After all, the United States of America is no stranger to “moveable Holidays.”  Mother’s Day is always the second Sunday in May, Thanksgiving is always the fourth Thursday in November, and rarely, if ever, the same date every year, but I digress.

Sometimes the groups were small, sometimes they were larger, but it was a powerful experience for all of us who participated.

In addition, I found it to be a training for me, as well.  Over the years, I have found that some people are simply resistant to their Prosperous Good.

Is that a bad thing?  No.  Does it make those people bad people?  Of course not.

I think it is safe to say people resist something virtually every day.  I have been actively resisting obtaining a passport for several years (although that resistance is coming to an end in less than two months).  Some people resist their Divine Guidance, some people resist eating foods that are healthier for their bodies, some people resist forgiving themselves and/or others.

However, sometimes we simply need to cooperate with the Universe, God, Goddess, Spirit, the Divine Great Mystery, Universal Life Source Energy.  By the way, as my high school music teacher would say, “I could give a flying purple” what you call the Divine.  I refer to Her as Goddess, but whatever you call Her, Him, or It, is completely OK with me.

I invite all of you to do the following: instead of resisting, cooperate, instead, with the Cosmic Energy and Divine Intelligence that flows in the Universe, all the time, every day, every hour.  Allow yourself to be Prosperous.

In closing, I wish to share with you one of my personal favorite Sacred Tools for creating, manifesting and maintaining Divine Prosperity: Crystals.

I AM aware that not everyone is drawn to Crystals, but if you are, then I highly recommend you work with them.

One of my personal favorite Prosperity Crystals is Amethyst, which is also a member of the Quartz family of Crystals.  It has been the experience of many that Amethysts bestow Prosperity Consciousness, attract financial opportunities, and also give one the feeling of being wealthy.

It is no coincidence that, in Ancient Rome, Amethysts were said to attract Wealth and Opulence.  Interestingly enough, I often find pieces of jewelry set with Amethyst are higher in price, than pieces of jewelry set with other semi-precious gemstones, even if larger in size.

In fact, I recall seeing a pendant set with a two-carat Amethyst, that was thirty dollars more than a pendant set with a four-carat Rose Quartz.  The Energy of Wealth and Opulence has certainly accompanied Amethysts through the centuries.

Before I close, I wish to share with you something I tell the participants of my “Divine Prosperity Events:”  It is my desire that everyone be Divinely and Permanently Prosperous.  And yet, what I want don’t mean shit.

Seriously, I know a lot of wonderful people, and if I were to tell the stars that I want them to be Wealthy and to have Oceans of Professional Success, the stars are going to simply continue doing what they have been doing for eons.

What do you want for yourself regarding Prosperity?  Are you willing to surrender and release anything or anyone that is preventing you (even ever-so-slightly) from physically manifesting that Divine Inheritance?  And if so, when are you going to do it?

I invite you to ponder those questions, and if you feel comfortable enough to share your answers, please feel free to submit a comment.

Thank you, one and all, for honoring who I AM and what I do.real-wealth

Hello, all, and a Happy Friday to all of you!  A Blessed Day of Venus (Planet of Love, Fulfillment and Joy) to all of you, too!!

I have found it interesting that, since I wrote and published “Prosperity Consciousness, Part I…”  it does not receive as many views as either one of the “Poverty Consciousness” posts.

Then again, I have known for some time, and observed, often during the years, that so many people seem conditioned or lack, limitation, and hard times, as opposed to Prosperity, Success, Financial Fulfillment, Professional Success, etc.

And yet, so many of us remain locked in a pattern of financial hardship.

I recall leading a “Divine Prosperity Event” in Hoboken, New Jersey, a few years ago.  It was my very first in Hoboken, New Jersey, and I was excited.  If my memory serves me correct, it was November, 2011, which I found significant, as exactly one decade earlier, I led my very first “Divine Prosperity Event” ever (which, at the time, was called “The Prosperity and Abundance Event,” and then not too long after that, renamed “The Prosperity and Abundance Event for Abundant Finances,” but I digress).

One of the participants had been using my Psychic Services for a very short time, and this was also her first time participating in one of my “Divine Prosperity Events.”  She soon began to see, almost immediately after the Class began, how she had some very limiting beliefs about Prosperity.

She is Self-Employed, and has her own pet care business, and it was no surprise to me how many new clients came to her after her participation, as well as how many clients with whom she reconnected during that time, too.

She grew up in financial hardship, but she began to embrace her Divine Inheritance of Divine and Permanent Prosperity, and I was honored to have had a hand (and a Mind, and a wing) in helping her move in that direction.

I also recall around the same time, leading a “Divine Prosperity Event” in Manhattan, and I recall someone who was referred to me by one of my regular clients, had sent me an Email a week after the Event, informing me that nothing has changed in her life.

Now, I confess, when I first received the Email, after reading it, I was insulted.  I remember thinking, “Who the fuck is this bitch?”  Then, I calmed down, reread the Email, and thought, “Check out this bitch!”

Well, I knew that attitude was not going to help me.  So, I waited until the following day, and before I properly replied to her Email, I Prayed.  Or, rather, I PRAYED!

When I began writing the reply, I thanked her for her honesty, and then, I began to see in my Mind a list of questions that could be preventing her from physically manifesting her Divine Prosperity.  The first question I asked was, “How often are you using the Metaphysical Methods and Sacred Tools you learned about in the ‘Divine Prosperity Event?’  Once a week, once a month, or not at all?”

Surprise, surprise!  Her response was not at all.  In other words, she was not using any of the Metaphysical Methods and Sacred Tools that she had learned less than a month earlier.

I was Divinely Guided to make a list of these same questions for the participants of my upcoming “Divine Prosperity Event,” and possibly to the “Divine Love Healing Event,” too.  This shall serve as a good check-in to see why they may not necessarily be moving forward regarding their creation, manifestation, and maintenance of Prosperity, Wealth, and Opulence, as well as Love, Fulfillment, and Joy.

In the meantime, I wish to share with all of you, another one of my personal favorite Metaphysical Methods to create, manifest, and maintain Divine Prosperity: Blessing.

The first time I ever read about the Prospering Power of Blessing, was when I first read Catherine Ponder’s The Prosperity Secrets of the Ages (Copyright 1964, DeVorss & Company, Camarillo, California), I was especially happy to read her chapter on Blessing, and how a Blessing brings Prosperity into one’s life, and one’ world.

Over the years, I meet teach many students in my “Divine Prosperity Events” on the Prospering Power of a Blessing.

You can give anything or anyone a Blessing.  With things, I highly recommend you Bless the things that you use to Prosper.  Business cards, cell phones, computers, printers, any special technical equipment you use in your business (e. g., if you are a baker or professional chef, your cookware, ingredients, materials, etc.), office, office building, etc.

Regarding people, Bless your clients, customers, students, patients, guests, teachers, employees, employers, supervisors, business partners, mentors, benefactors, etc.

A simple but sublime way to Bless a thing is to hold it in your hands (or, if it is larger than your hands, place your hands on it), focus your Mind, and say or think these or similar words: 1. I Bless you with Love and Light, I Bless you with Prosperity and Peace, I Bless you with Love and Light.”

I AM being Divinely Guided to recommend you do this at least three times, and you can do this several times a day, or once daily (or nightly, as the case may be).

I would especially recommend this practice if you have ever cursed an object that is a part of your business (your cell phone, for example).  An object that you have at times found yourself so frustrated with it, that you wanted to throw it against a wall, throw it out of a window from a very high floor, or wanted to throw out o a moving vehicle, without yelling, “LOOK OUT!”

If this applies to you, then please know that object that you use as part of your business, professional, position of employment is desperate to receive Divine Love from you, and given that you use it for your Prosperity, it shall only benefit you to do this.

For a person, you can write his or her name on a piece of paper, or you can hold an image of him or her in your Mind, say (or think) his or her name, as you know it, three times in a row, then say (or think), these or similar words: “I Bless you with Love and Light, I Bless you with Prosperity and Peace, I Bless you with Love and Light.”

Doing this, shall make you increase your Happiness and Peace, as well as his or her Happiness and Peace, as well.

Finally, before I close, I wish to acknowledge my newest blog follower: “pmitsuing.”  Thank you for honoring who I AM and what I do, and thank you for following “This Is Who I AM.”  May you receive Divine Radiance, Divine Prosperity, and Divine Peace from doing so.

And for those of you already following and reading “This Is Who I AM,” may we all continue to receive Divine Love, Divine, Divine Prosperity, and Divine Peace.9780875165677_p0_v1_s260x420

Hello, everyone, and a Happy Tuesday and Day of Mars (Planet of Goals, Motivation and Powerful Action) to all of you!

I feel as though I redeemed myself last night.  After writing the second part of a post on poverty consciousness, I met with a client who pre-registered for both my upcoming “Divine Prosperity Event” and “Divine Love Healing Event” (and yes, a post on both of them is forthcoming, so stay tuned!), and it was truly a Divine Appointment.

Not only did she treat me to a small Greek salad (she asked me twice, if I wanted something more than the coffee and two cranberry and white chocolate cookies I was eating, and I opened myself up to Prosperity in all of its forms), but she also had a half-hour Reading with me (and gave me a Love Offering, my preferred description for a tip), not to mention that when I counted the money in the GORGEOUS Feng Shui envelope, she placed a Love Offering, too.

I felt so happy, especially since the monies gave me the opportunity to keep a promise to a Saint (and shall also help me keep a promise to another one).

Nonetheless, today I have the honor and pleasure of writing about one of my favorite topics: Prosperity.

Returning to dictionary.com (or, to be more precise, http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/prosperity?s=t ) the definition of the word “prosperity” is: “a successful, flourishing, or thriving condition, especially in financial respects; good fortune.”  I love that definition!

As Catherine Ponder wrote in the introduction in her book, Open Your Mind to Prosperity, “You are prosperous to the degree that you are experiencing peace, health, and plenty in your world.”

And, as Louise L. Hay said in her Receiving Prosperity lecture, there are many different forms of Prosperity.  There is Love, Professional Success, Joy (one of my personal favorite forms of Prosperity), Health, Wisdom, Time, Money, etc.

Now, here is a secret: Prosperity, regardless of its form, has the same Energy.  In other words, if you push away one form of Prosperity, you essentially push all of them away from you.

If you have an aversion to money, to wealth, to opulence, and you resist it, then you push away all forms of Prosperity.

I recall having a client, who happens to be a published author, who would participate in my group Prosperity Classes, and always manifested great blind dates, immediately after participating in them.  I recall another participant would find that she always had a great night of sleep after each group Prosperity Class.  Yet another found that he would experience less physical pain in his body.

Romance, Wellness, Health and Well-Being.  All three of these individuals participated in a group Prosperity Class, during which I taught some of the many ways one can create, manifest, and maintain Divine Prosperity in the forms of Money, Wealth, Opulence, and Professional Success, and they manifested Money, Professional Success, and more.

Before I conclude Part I of this three-part series of blog posts, I wish to share with you one of my personal favorite methods of manifesting Divine Prosperity: Affirmations.

An Affirmation essentially, anything we say or think, especially ongoingly.  An Affirmation is usually a sentence, and when one uses a sentence in a negative disempowering way (such as, “Men can’t be trusted,” “I can’t afford it,” “Nobody loves me,” etc.) then it becomes a life sentence.

The most important thing to remember with an Affirmation is to ALWAYS use them in the present tense.  Here are some examples:

 

“I AM PROSPEROUS.”

“EVERY DAY IN EVERY WAY, MY FINANCIAL SUPPLY GETS STRONGER AND STRONGER.”

“I EASILY AND EFFORTLESSLY ATTRACT A WONDERFUL NEW POSITION OF EMPLOYMENT, IN WHICH I WORK WITH AND FOR PEOPLE THAT ARE WONDERFUL AND PAID A GOOD SALARY.”

“I NOW MANIFEST A NEW HOME, THAT IS CLEAN AND SAFE AND AT A PRICE THAT I CAN EASILY AFFORD.”

“WEALTH IS MINE!  SUCCESS IS MINE!  OPULENCE IS MINE!  RIGHT NOW!”

“I NOW SURRENDER AND RELEASE ALL NEGATIVE RELATIONSHIPS, NEGATIVE PEOPLE, NEGATIVE BELIEFS, AND MANIFEST HERE AND NOW, MY TRUE RELATIONSHIPS WITH TRUE LOVE, TRUE LIGHT, AND TRUE PROSPERITY.”

“DIVINE LOVE HEALS ME NOW!  DIVINE LOVE PROSPERS ME NOW!  DIVINE LOVE PROTECTS ME NOW!”

 

Notice that all of these Affirmations are in the present tense, the here and now.

If you use an Affirmation that begins with “I will have,” you shall always be waiting.

Ultimately, the best Affirmations begin with the phrase, “I AM,” or “I HAVE.”

Now, I cannot state this enough: if you only use an Affirmation like any or all of the aforementioned once, it ain’t gonna do SHIT for you!

Think how many times, how many hours, how many days, how many weeks, how many months, how many years, and, if you are old enough, how many decades, you have persisted in having a negative, disempowering thought?  That, too, is an affirmation, because you are making firm and real something that causes you pain.

Last night, I was having a conversation with a gentleman, and I made it clear to him that there is nothing to consider: one can either choose to follow one’s Divine Guidance, or one can decide to ignore it.

If you keep having the same financial problem, over and over again, there is something that you may not be allowing yourself to receive: a lesson, a Truth, a Pearl of Wisdom.

I can honestly say that I AM in a much better place, physically, emotionally, Spiritually, Psychically, financially and with my relationships with others.  However, I have found that the bullshit (or, as I say, BOO-SHEET!) factor in my life has become completely exhausted.

Seriously, be honest with yourselves about the source of your pain.  It might be closer than you realize.

Thank you, one and all, for honoring who I AM and what I do.goldenmoney

It is ironic, that after beginning my day with Affirmations and Spiritual Decrees for Divine Prosperity, as well as engaging in my daily writings for John Randolph Price’s “40-Day Prosperity Plan” that Goddess would Divinely Guide me to write a Part II to this post.

It is also ironic, especially considering that once, while writing a “Prosperous Minds Lead to Prosperous Lives” Email, I misspelled the word “poverty” three times.  I soon realized that I was so removed from poverty consciousness that I could not even spell the word “poverty” correctly, thrice in a row.

I promise to keep this post short and simple.

First, consider this: “If you always do what you always do, then you always get what you always get.”  If you always persist in focusing on what you do not have, and on things and people who cause you to feel anger, resentment, bitterness, and unforgiveness, then you shall always have anger, resentment, bitterness, and unforgiveness, not to mention a whole lot of impoverishment.

Second, as someone who has a history of being a victim (and quite skilled at playing the victim, as well), the moment you choose to be victorious, successful, Prosperous, you create a change.  In your Energy Field, in your life, and in your world.

Third, also consider that, at some point, you mentally accepted impoverishment, either in the form of financial hardship, dysfunctional relationships (romantic and otherwise), lack and limitation.

Here is an example: I used to give Readings in a Metaphysical store in Queens, NYC.  One day, I was talking to a dear friend, who has also been using my Psychic Services since October, 1997.  One day, she asked me what I was doing that day, and I told her I was giving Readings at this Metaphysical store.  She said, “So, you’re going to work?”  I was bewildered for a moment, and then I said, “Yes.”

Well, that day was such a fucked up day!  I hardly gave any Readings that day, two people canceled their appointments, and I received no Love Offerings (my preferred description for tips) that day.

Mind you, my Journey to Prosperity Consciousness was quite new, at that point, so it took me a long time to realize that I had mentally accepted “work” in my Spiritual Calling, my Bliss of being a professional Psychic.  And work and hardship is what I got.

When I realized my mistake, I corrected it.  I waited until the DarkMoon (the Night before the New Moon, which is the BEST time of the Lunar Month to surrender and release, banish and dissolve), and I renounced that my being a professional Psychic was “work” and that certainly turned the tide for me.  I resumed averaging six to ten Readings when I was in that store, as well as receiving Love Offerings and Prosperity Gifts from my clients.

Finally, I find it very interesting that, in spite of my beginning my day saturating my consciousness with Prosperity, a long-time client (one who has been using my Psychic Services since September, 2001), rescheduled an appointment until next month.  This client, rarely, if ever does this.  And I have decided that I AM NOT going to be writing about poverty consciousness any time soon (if ever again, but I digress).

Before I close, I wish to acknowledge my newest blog follower: “my life.”  Thank you for honoring who I AM and what I do.  May you receive Divine Healing, Divine Inspiration and Divine Prosperity from following “This Is Who I AM.”

And for those of you already following and reading my blog, may we continue to have lives Divinely Abundant with Joy, Riches, and Success.blondhardship

A brief welcome to those of you that are new to “This Is Who I AM.”

Those of you that have been following or reading “This Is Who I AM” for a while now, and especially those of you that have participated in my “Divine Prosperity Events,” and/or availed yourself of a private “Metaphysical Prosperity Session” with me, may have noticed that I usually write a Prosperity-themed post around the time that I AM leading a “Divine Prosperity Event.”

My next one is scheduled for Friday, September 26, 2014, 7-10PM, but I digress.

However, I do not believe I have ever written a blog post about poverty consciousness.  Until now.

According to dictionary.com, the primary definition of “poverty” is: “the state or condition of having little or no money, goods, or means of support; condition of being poor.”  Also, one could argue that, if one is receiving less than one is owing, then he or she is impoverished.

Also according to dictionary.com, the primary definition of the word “consciousness” is: “the state of being conscious; awareness of one’s own existence, sensations, thoughts, surroundings, etc.”  One could argue, as well, that if one is unaware of his or her poverty and/or Prosperity, then he or she is unconscious.

Nonetheless, I AM looking at poverty consciousness from a Metaphysical perspective.

Poverty consciousness can be described as a state of being oblivious to the good Fortune one has, and only focusing on what one does not have.  As well as maintaining a “poor” attitude.

Example: recently, I began visiting some freebies Websites, in my spare time.  Earlier today, I visited one that offered a year of free samples.  When I began reading the comments, I was surprised at how many people wrote that they would be happy to win it, especially given how little money they have, or how little money they receive, or because of some other hardship, financial and otherwise.

One person commented that he or she would be happy if someone who truly needed it deserved it.

And yet another person shared how much support she has received from local organizations in her area.

I must admit, I found it most odd, and disturbing.  Why would someone focus on his or her lack, as a way of “winning” a contest.  Frankly, I almost did not submit an entry, I was so put off by that.

However, I did submit an entry.  Because my Prosperity Consciousness is much greater and much stronger than my poverty consciousness.  And I AM most thankful for that!

When one persistently focuses on lack and hardship, that is what shall remain, no matter how much good Fortune is around you.  But do not take my word for it; how many times have you focused on something (or someone) you do not have, and the lack and hardship seems to grow and build and increase?

Guess what, ladies and gentlemen, blog followers and readers: the lack and hardship DOES grow and build and increase.

It is neither my intention nor my desire to wage war against poverty.  We have seen what governments have accomplished when they have waged war against drugs, crime, etc., and the results never bring Prosperity.

In her “Receiving Prosperity” lecture, Louise L. Hay said that Prosperity is not just money.  It includes money, time, Wisdom, Love, health, etc.

Also, as Catherine Ponder wrote in the introduction of her book Open Your Mind to Prosperity, “You are prosperous to the degree that you are experiencing peace, health and plenty in your world.”

Ultimately, what I do wish to state, here and now is this:

You are NOT worthless, and you are NOT a piece of shit.  And if anyone tells you otherwise, send them to me.  I know exactly what to do.  Yes, indeed-y!

You are a Cosmic Child of the Divine.

For many years, Shirley MacLaine received a lot of guff for her Spiritual works, but in one of her seminars she said, “You are God, so act accordingly.”

Let us say, for a moment, that you are truly Divine.  a Living God (or Goddess).  How would a Deity deal with hardship?  With lack?  With limitation?  With (and this is a highly technical term, so please pay close attention) crap?  What I refer to in my “Divine Prosperity Events” as “poverty propaganda?”

Holding on to a negative thought or situation is simply going to bring you more negativity, more hardship, more lack, more limitation and more poverty.

No matter how much you are hurting, and no matter how much you are Healing, I invite you to ongoingly surrender and release any and all attachments to poverty: in your finances, in your relationships, in your home, in your world.

Truly, what can you lose?

Before I close, I wish to acknowledge my newest blog follower: “mayor5.”  May you receive Divine Joy, Divine Riches and Divine Success from following “This Is Who I AM.”

And for those of you already following and reading my blog, thank you, as always, for honoring who I AM and what I do.  May we continue to receive Divine Protection, Divine Prosperity and Divine Peace in all the areas of our lives, and for all who we love and adore.

"Money is as Spiritual as a Rose."  Louise L. Hay.

“Money is as Spiritual as a Rose.” Louise L. Hay.

It has been a long time since I have written a Tarot-themed blog post, and I felt that this would be a perfect time for me to do so.

Between the fact that I AM a professional Psychic that uses Tarot Decks (as well as Divination and Oracle Card Decks); the fact that clients come to me for Readings with the Sacred Tarot, more than any other Psychic Service I offer; my primary Email address being thetarotman@excite.com; my use of “thetarotman” as the screen name of virtually every Website of which I AM a member; as well as a rather large collection of Tarot Decks (as well as Divination and Oracle Card Decks), the Tarot is a constant in my life.

However, just like there are men that do not think about sex every second of every day (yes, they do exist, and I happen to be one of them), I do not think about the Tarot every second of every day, either.  However, the Tarot has a unique way of Re-Minding me of its presence.

Those of you that also follow or read my other blog, “This Gay Man’s Life…” may recall my post about meeting “Mommy Man,” specifically Jerry Mahoney, author of Mommy Man: How I Went from Mild-Mannered Geek to Gay Superdad.”

Aside from the fact that I was excited to purchase yet another autographed copy of a book, but I was also excited to meet, in person, a WordPress blogger turned published author.

That week was an especially Prosperous week for me, and when I had learned that it was a strong possibility that Barnes & Noble Booksellers would be closing its doors, sooner than later, I splurged and purchased four books, which is rare for me, especially without a coupon.

Shortly before making my way downstairs to the registers I found 365 Tarot Spreads: Revealing the Magic in Each Day, by Sasha Graham (Copyright 2014, Llewellyn Publications, Woodbury, Minnesota).  Or, rather, it found me.

Those of you that have had Readings with me, you know that I rarely use Tarot Spreads in my professional Readings.  I simply lay the Cards out as I AM Divinely Guided.

However, from time to time, it makes a difference to use a specific arrangement of Cards to help guide the way.

During my Summer Solstice “Divine Prosperity Event,” on Friday, June 20, 2014, 7-10PM, I used the “Litha Midsummer Solstice Spread,” which happens (not-at-all coincidentally) to be dated on June 20 in the book.  For the Spread, I used the Mystical Cats Tarot,” by Lunaea Weatherstone, illustrated by Mickie Mueller (Copyright 2014, Llewellyn Publications, Woodbury, Minnesota).

Some of you have been waiting VERY patiently for that video.  I just sent a text message to my tech person, and Goddess Willing, it shall be on my YouTube page, as well as part of a future blog post, before the conclusion of Summer, and the beginning of Autumn.

Interestingly enough, my favorite part of the book is the index of Spreads.

Now, I shall list the categories, from the “Index of Spreads” as well as a Spread from that particular category, and its corresponding date.  Here we go…

 

Animals–“Feline Mystery Spread” (October 29)

Cinema–“Ghost-Hunting Spread” (in honor of the motion picture Ghostbusters, June 8)

Creativity–“T. S. Eliot’s Poets & Writers Spread” (May 9)

Self-Knowledge and Personal Growth–“Chartres Sacred Labyrinth/Higher Self Spread” (October 17)

Sensual–“Tantric Kundalini Spread” (January 18)

Spiritual–“The Noble Eightfold Path Spread” (April 13)

Tarot–“A. E. Waite’s Boaz & Jachin Spread” (October 2)

Work and Career–“Grow Your Business Spread” (April 21)

 

If you purchase a copy of 365 Tarot Spreads: Revealing the Magic in Each Day, by Sasha Graham, I would love to hear which Spread is your favorite, as well as your experiences with the book.  I would especially love to hear from professional Psychics who use the Sacred Tarot, as well as people learning the Sacred Tarot, regarding this book, and your use of it.

Thank you, one and all, for honoring who I AM and what I do.  In Ms. Graham’s honor, I wish all of you “Happy Casting!”9780738740386_p0_v2_s260x420

Approximately two months ago, I reblogged for the second time a blog post by Peaches, entitled “Dear Fellow Bloggers.”

What she wrote about “likes” is exactly how I have felt about “Likes” on Facebook, and on other social media networks, too.

In case you were unable to read it previously, here it is again:

http://alateralplunge.wordpress.com/2012/07/21/dear-fellow-bloggers/

Reading and rereading this blog post, was very illuminating for me.

I have nothing against “Likes.”  And I have noticed a few things about the people who click “Like.”

For example, on my Facebook page, the ones that honor me and my WordPress blogs the most, are the ones that click “Like” when they do not have the time to properly comment, and/or not sure how to comment at that moment.

Holly Troy is a perfect example of this.  Since the very beginning, more than two years ago, every time she clicks “Like” on my blog, it is because she does not have the time, at that moment, to properly comment.

Also, I have seen this with other followers of “This Is Who I AM” over the years, too.  So far, my other WordPress blog, “This Gay Man’s Life…” is still too new, and has not experienced this, at the present time.

By the way, please visit Holly Troy’s WordPress blog.  It is http://holly-troy.com

Do I hate “likes?”  No.  However, I find that clicking “Like” is an exercise in mindlessness.  This world has become so very abbreviated, with people taking “vacays,” having “mani-pedis,” and texting “thx,” or “how r u.”

Clicking “Like” has become an acceptable form of saying “thank you,” or “you are wonderful,” or “this gives me a lot to think about.”

I do not require that anyone who comments on my blog, or in my life, for that matter, be an orator, or a  writer, or have ever been published or have any degree of eloquence.

My Divinely Orchestrated stroke has opened up many Psychic Centers in my Mind, and I often “hear” something behind a compliment.  I receive many compliments for my writing, and sometimes, someone gives me a compliment and I “hear” something like, “I wish I could write like that.”

Ladies and gentlemen, blog followers and blog readers, there is a book that has helped me emotionally heal, and I often reread it.  In fact, I AM currently rereading it now.  It is The Goddess’ Guide to Love: Timeless Secrets to Divine Romance, by Margie Lapanja (Copyright 1999, Conari Press (now Red Wheel/Weiser), Newburyport, Massachusetts).

When I first read this book, I thought, “I wish I had written this.”  However, I AM clear that it was a part of Ms. Lapanja’s Divine Life Purpose to write this book.

So, please, know that when someone comments on my blog, it is NOT a requirement that one be incredibly eloquent.  Some of you may find this difficult to believe, but there are moments when I AM far from eloquent.

Nonetheless, if you click “Like” on my Facebook pages, my WordPress blog posts, etc., thank you.  And, I may not take it seriously.

I remember, last year, I published a post about my experience being stuck in an elevator in my apartment building.  A fellow professional Lightworker clicked “Like” on Facebook, and I was confused as to why she did that.

As a result, I asked her if she was clicking “Like” because it was my blog post, because she loved the photo of an elevator I found on the Internet, or because I was stuck in an elevator?  She never answered my question.

And frankly, one of my mottoes in life is “assume nothing,” hence my question.  I really had no idea why she clicked “Like.”

Another example of the mindlessness of clicking “Like,” is the following: Recently, someone on a private Facebook page to which I belong clicked “Like” in response to the announcement that the mother of one of the other members had Transitioned.  I, of course, asked this member why he clicked “Like.”

His response was that it was his way of showing support.

My Primary Psychic Guide, David, immediately said, “Robert, shut up,” while my other Primary Psychic Guide, Anthony, immediately said–at the same time–, “Robert, calm down.”  Oh, my GODDESS!  The mindlessness that I encountered with that one statement was amazing!

Now, let me tell you about this person.  He is a good guy, very intelligent and very creative.  However, I was astounded at the sheer idiocy of his statement.  That people would click “Like” as a way of expressing compassion for another’s bereavement, was amazing to me.

And yes, this is an extreme example, but, again, it shows me the sheer mindlessness I have observed on numerous occasions on Facebook, and on other social media networks.  It astounds me how mindless people can be, especially regarding “Like.”

Think for a moment.  How long does it take, really, to click “Like.”  Can you imagine someone investing so little time and energy in having a relationship with you, be it romantic, platonic, or professional?  I do not know about you, but this bitch (yeah, me, Robert Alvarez, King Bitch) deserves a whole lot more than that!

Yes, some would think that is because I wrote the comment, but then they click “Like” on EVERY comment EVERYONE writes on their Facebook page.

I think I have written more than enough about this topic.

On a lighter note, and something that I AM very happy about (and NO, I AM not going to “Like’ it, especially since I have disabled “Likes” on this blog post), let me acknowledge my newest blog followers to “This Is Who I AM.”  They are: “earth scientist,” “MuseBoxx,” “erniekeep,” “diplomatebidemi,” “moonblossomcrys,” “ahoychrispineda,” and “meadowfaery13.”  Thank you for honoring who I AM and what I do.  May your f0llowing “This Is Who I AM” bring you Divine Joy, Divine Riches and Divine Success.

And for those of you already following and reading “This Is Who I AM,” thank you so much for honoring who I AM and what I do.  May we continue to live lives Divinely Abundant with Prosperity, Protection and Peace.

Yes, this is how I feel about "Likes."
