Spiritual Speed Bump Ahead…
Before we begin, let me say this! I was raised in the church for the majority of my life. I spent the first 30+ years of my life sitting on a pew, faithfully attending church and paying tithes too. So I’ve sat on the pew AND I’ve been behind the pulpit – teaching and leading. I even hosted a podcast via BlogTalkRadio called Got ISH-OOS? and its still up. I’ve had a seat behind the scenes, in private ministry circles from storefront church to mega-ministries. I’ve even earned a religious degree from a bible college. Yet none of that negates the fact that I choose to turn around from the Church and that I AM A WITCH – if that’s what you wish to call me.
But if you must use a label, at least think of me as Glenda, the Good Witch from The Wizard of Oz. I’m not perfect but when I’m in my zone, I can see through bullshit a mile away (but I may not call you out on it – at least not right away). As a good witch, I don’t use magic half hazardly. That means I don’t try and get back at people by trying to override their free will (through spellcasting). My greatest gift has been and will continue to be the power of silence. Unless I am spiritually inclined to do otherwise, I know that one’s karma will expose you sooner or later, whether it’s in the lifetime or the next.
So if you’re of a deeply religious mindset, I’m warning you now that this post is not what you think it is. I have no reason to turn back because the Divine Presence that is Jesus – also known as Christ Consciousness. Furthermore, this Divine Presence cannot be “owned” by any particular religion and is open to all. If you have read this far, then welcome…
What in the Alchemy is Going On?
Earlier this year, I started a podcast called The Alchemy of it All via my sister website, DivinelyPreservedHealer.com. For the first five episodes, I focused on current events mainly the “pandemic”. However, the more I really saw the alchemy of it all, the madder I got. Why? – Because so many people – mainly Christians – are wholeheartedly buying into this fiasco. All that fear and worry sends the body into fight or flight mode, causing unnecessary stress and strain, which will ultimately lead you into sickness, disease, or worse, each. So for my own sanity, I had to step back for my own podcast for a few months.
For a spell – no pun intended, I decided to switch gears for a spell to prepare to focus on something else and up pops a video pops a series of videos on your YouTube feed called From New Age to Jesus?!? based on Doreen Virtue’s actions a few years ago. So what is the alchemy is this shyt? Since the lockdowns/shelter-in-place, why had some many YouTube-based tarot readers suddenly “stumbled upon” Jesus. Now, the same work they use to do is evil and demonic? OKAY, to each his own….
I did notice a common pattern. During the pandemic, most tarot channels grew eerily quiet. (I actually started my YouTube channel during that time but I haven’t been faithfully in keeping it up as I have other more important obligations to attend to.)Besides, I don’t offer personal readings to the general public – never have, never will.) Nevertheless, within a few months – after the initial smoke had cleared, starting on the channels of those who had these statuses and offerings:
- Amassed near or over 100k followers – and their channels were often monetized
- Offered general tarot reading for the Collective, including separate zodiac signs and/or for specific astrological events
- Provided step-by-step instructions to the Collective centered around astrological events like the new, full, and/or blue moons
- Offered paid personal tarot readings
- Utilized the YouTube membership feature or had a separate Patreon in which they charged members to subscribe
Dazed, Confused & Rich
In other words, they made a lot of money off the backs of people looking for direction and guidance. A few of them exposed themselves when they claimed to have had COVID-19, which was a dead giveaway. During the lockdowns, their channels went dark. However, upon their return, they started posting videos entitled “From New Age to Jesus”.
Suddenly, they had “found Jesus” after having “seen demons” and thought that was a sign for them to “turn from their wicked ways”. In doing so, they left their followers “dazed and confused,” while their pockets – like the windows of heaven – had overflowed in wealth and abundance of others. In doing so, they turn around and suddenly demonized the same thing that they openly practiced and profited from – sometimes for years. Come on people, even Ray Charles can see through this.
Am I judging them? HELL NO! They can do whatever they want to but for those of us who can see through this BS. It’s called SPIRITUAL DISCERNMENT – not passing judgment because we’re bored or jealous. Remember, I know the power of silence but I also know the power of control as I raised by a narcissist guardian. The same experience I had in the house of Jezebel has carried over to a scene that the whole world is participating in through this “health crisis”.
The Jezebel I was raised by was HEAVILY INVOLVED IN THE CHURCH. Her portals exposed me to the dark side of the demonic, which was why I tried so hard to please God and dug deeper into the Christian faith then it would save me from her. But through all that digging, I exposed even more Jezebels right in leadership positions in the Church. As a matter of fact, below is a podcast I did for my book, which I’m in no hurry to finish – entitled The House of Jezebel: Fulfilling Destiny in Spite of Your Upbringing. Please listen if you are one of those dazed and confused and seeking answers. Wanna glance into what is going on, taking a listen for yourself. This isn’t about COVID-19 but it does shed light on religion vs spirituality.
It’s Time to Study…
In the podcast episode for Writing Ain’t Easy: Writing & [the] Early Christian Church Truths, I share research from multiple sources regarding the three main faction of the early Christian Church: Pauline Christians, jewish Christians – not to be confused with today’s Messianic Jews, and Gnostic Christians. Near the end, I shared some of my newfound beliefs as it relates to shifting from a Pauline (or exoteric) belief system to a Gnostic/Mysticism (or esoteric). Again, if you are dazed and confused and looking for answers, start with that podcast.
Frankly, I believe in empowering people through knowledge. My heart is to teach you how to know and hear God for yourself, so you won’t be “tossed to and fro” swayed by every wind of doctrine. Amen/Ase’
Until next time…
