It has been a long time since I have given all of you an update on my overall health.

For now, I can tell you that physically, I feel worlds better than I did in April, 2014.

Emotionally, I continue to do well, although I did have a challenging day the day-before-yesterday, Wednesday, November 19, 2014.

However, I realized that the emotional challenges that I encountered that day were the Goddesses and Angels Re-Minding me of maintaining my Spiritual Practices.

Indeed, I spent a portion of my day rereading The Dynamic Laws of Healing, by Catherine Ponder (Copyright 1966, Revised Copyright, 1985, DeVorss Publications, Camarillo, California), as I had been Divinely Guided to reread this book earlier this year, if not late last year.

Also, I finally feel comfortable having a full meal in a restaurant.  After being given a “prescription” of a sodium-and-fluid reduced regimen, the only thing I felt comfortable consuming from any eatery was a small cup of coffee and a plain roll, toasted, with butter.

Now, I feel comfortable having a sandwich, or pasta, or soup, and I remain Mindful of sodium content, as well as how much fluid I have consumed in a day.

It feels good to no longer be afraid to eat or drink.  That may seem an odd statement, but it is a true reflection of my feelings of late.

Next Monday, November 24, I meet with my primary health care physician, who is an internist, to discuss the results of the echocardiogram I had done on Monday, November 10, 2014.  Both my doctor and I feel that the results shall be favorable.  I AM looking forward to discussing the results with him.

After those results, I shall have a more complete, full health update for all of you.

For now, thank you, one and all, for honoring who I AM and what I do.healthmap


A much better and much busier day for me today, however, in honor of Day 20 of NaBloPoMo, I AM reblogging this, from the early days of “This Is Who I AM.” Thank you.

Originally posted on This Is Who I AM:

This past weekend, I was scheduled to attend four special events.  However, because of several reasons (none bad, just annoying) I was only able to attend three of them.

The first one was a Wiccan Ordination to see two women become Priestesses as well as Reverends.  This was this past Saturday, March 23, 2013.  It was a beautiful ceremony, and I was surprised at how much Power and Energy was raised.  And I was happy to have made a gift for one of the Priestesses, the one who invited me.

The other event on Saturday night was attending the Birthday party of The Amazing Nicole Tomassini.  You would have thought it was my Birthday.  I ate like a King!  Now, I rarely drink alcohol or eat meat within two days before either conducting Readings or leading a Metaphysical Class or Ritual, but there was so much crappy stress in my…

Better day today, much busier day today, but a new blog post is coming. Nonetheless, in honor of Day 20 of NaBloPoMo, I reblog this post. Thank you.

Lesbians, my fellow Gay Men, Bisexuals, Transgendered folks, and our straight allies: I wish to apologize for not having written a blog post on “This Gay Man’s Life…” in too long a time.

Frankly, life got in the way.  Specifically, some physical health issues got in the way.

Briefly, for roughly two weeks, I had difficulty breathing.  It was severe to the point that I could no longer lay down to sleep; if I wanted to sleep, I would need to sit in the big, easy chair in my living room.

And so, I went to the emergency room of one of the best hospitals in my area this past Monday, April 21; while there, I was given several antibiotics, Lasix, an incredibly powerful diuretic (especially for me, as it makes me pee like a race horse!), nebulizer treatments for my lungs, plenty of rest and plenty of great care…

As it has been one of those days, I AM reblogging this post. Enjoy and Heal.

Although the vast majority of people who come to me do so for Intuitive Card Readings (Tarot, Goddess Cards, et al), I have people who also come to me for Energy Healing Treatments.  I have been a Reiki Master for approximately nine years, and am also a Mahatma Infusion Energy Therapist.  I have been attuned to some other Energy Healing Systems, as well.

I think virtually every Energy Healing Practitioner I have ever met has a strong affinity with Archangel Raphael, the Divine Healer of the Archangels.  I have had a strong connection to this Beautiful Archangel for many years and often venerate Him on Wednesdays.  In Magickal Traditions, Wednesday is the Day of Mercury (Planet of Communication), and this Planet is Astrologically connected to the Divine Healer of the Archangels.

In the Sacred Tarot, Archangel Raphael can be found on Trump VI, The Lovers Card.  I have always found this most appropriate…

Today has been one of those days, so I AM reblogging one of my earliest, and most provocative of blog posts. Enjoy and think.

Sometimes I wonder if I AM a militant homosexual.  Sometimes I think there is no way I could be one.

Sometimes I think that I shall become one if I allow myself to be  a free spirit all the time, as opposed to, occasionally (read: rarely).

Yesterday, Friday, March 28, 2014, I was thinking about how I walk.  Thirty-two per cent of the time, I walk like I AM in a music video; thirty-three per cent of the time I walk like I AM in the military; thirty-five per cent of the time I walk like George Jefferson (portrayed brilliantly by [the late and great] Sherman Hemsley).

So far, in my life, I have signed numerous petitions, but have only been to two Gay Pride Parades (both in Manhattan), and I have yet to take part in a demonstration.  Also, as soon as I find out that a company does…

The late, great Eleanor Roosevelt once said, “Great minds discuss ideas; average minds discuss events; small minds discuss people.”

I think she forgot to include the weather in the “small minds” section.

It has been a while since I have looked at my international stats, but I AM aware that there are people who live in other countries who visit my two WordPress Blogs daily.  This is part of the reason for this blog post for the day.

Nonetheless, earlier today, one of my favorite people, and one of my personal heroes gave me a weather report about the cold and the snow.

And, I felt this was a perfect time to state, again, how much I loathe and despise weather talk.

Why, you may ask, do I loathe and despise weather talk?  Oh, there are several reasons, but here are my favorites:


1. The people who complain about the weather, or express strong dislike for it, are people who are NOT new to the area.  Last year, I have seen people share on various social media platforms that it is cold.  And these posts were from people who have lived in either a Northeast or a Mid-Atlantic State for more than half their lives, if not all of their lives.

Did they suddenly forget that it is usually cold in the Northeast or in a Mid-Atlantic State in December?  Did they just move to the area?  No.  So, the fact that they are stating that it is cold, is completely unnecessary.

2. There are so many more fascinating and important topics to discuss.  Metaphysical Studies, Magick, Spirituality, Animals, Food, etc.  Hell, I would even endure a conversation about politics (or, as I would say, “fucking politics”) than a conversation about the ever-changing, varying weather.

3. Finally, and this is probably the most important.  I know that people commenting about the weather are exercising freedom of speech.  That works both ways.  I can write something and people can comment about what I write.  Any one can say or write something and any one else can respond to what was said or written.  Here is an example of what I mean:

PERSON COMMENTING ON THE WEATHER: Oh, it’s so cold today!  I can’t believe it!

ME: Oh, are you new to the area?  Oh, no, that is right, I forgot that you were born here.  

PERSON COMMENTING ON THE WEATHER: Robert, you don’t need to be cruel about it.

ME: Cruel?  I AM not being cruel.  I AM simply stating the obvious, just as you did when you mentioned that it is cold today.  Then again, it is late November, in the NYC area, correct?  So, the fact that it is cold today is not a big surprise to you, yes?

PERSON COMMENTING ON THE WEATHER: Robert, you just don’t understand.

Right.  I do not understand.  It is a cold day in late November, in the NYC area.  I AM not shocked, nor am I surprised, nor am I misunderstanding anything.

Now, there is the possibility that I shall remain just as busy as I have been since this past September, to the point that I may not even have the luxury to get upset about people complaining about the weather that I shall even see these comments on various social media networks.

Before I close, I wish to acknowledge my newest blog followers.  There are a few, so bear with me.  They are: “Sofia Velikorodova. Meta-physical Aha,” and “williamthebutler.”  Thank you, both, 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.”

To those of you already following or reading “This Is Who I AM,” thank you so much for honoring who I AM and what I do.  May you continue to receive Divine Joy, Divine Riches and Divine Success from following my blog.

This is what REAL severe weather looks like, not this "Oh, it's 20 degrees in NYC" nonsense.

This is what REAL severe weather looks like, not this “Oh, it’s 20 degrees in NYC” nonsense.

Now that I AM past the first part of National Blog Posting Month (or, NaBloPoMo, for short), I AM looking at upcoming blog posts for “This Is Who I AM.”

Goddess Knows I have plenty of ideas, and I certainly look forward to using at least twelve of them (as of tomorrow, Tuesday, November 18, 2014, there are twelve days remaining in both November, and NaBloPoMo).  And one idea just popped into my head, after looking at a book cover, but I digress.

Part of me feels that I AM re-establishing “This Is Who I AM,” as I have had an increase in blog followers since I began taking part in NaBloPoMo, and I also look forward to doing some “maintenance” work whenever someone views a post I wrote back in 2012, or even 2013.

But today, is such a super busy day, so I need to keep it very short, but very sweet.  However, before I close, I wish to acknowledge my newest blog follower: Maggie Mae.  Thank you so much for honoring who I AM and what I do.  May you receive Divine Joy, Divine Riches and Divine Success from following “This Is Who I AM.”

As to those of you already following or reading “This Is Who I AM,” thank you, also, for honoring who I AM and what I do.  May you continue to receive Divine Love, Divine Light, Divine Prosperity, and Divine Peace from either following or reading “This Is Who I AM.”upcoming
