A CALL FOR PEACE!

A member of the Metaphysical community, a buyer I believe, has started this site METAPHYSICAL PEACE - He is asking all who agree to add their names as members. I think it's a great idea and about time! We should all just let go of all past hurts and transgressions and move forward. NOW IS THE TIME! Let's end the Meta-War now!

Please, all negative blogs, posts and guides criticizing or 'trash talking' other sellers should stop, all that can be, should be removed or rewritten in positive ways. All the negative energy, finger pointing, and accusations should come to an end. We are, should be, a positive community welcoming all members. PEACE!

MY FURTHER THOUGHTS ON THE META-WARS...


"TIME SAVING TRUTH FROM FALSEHOOD AND ENVY"
BY FRANCOISE LEMOYNE-PAINTED-1737


The battle rages on in the Meta-Wars sadly. I just don't understand what drives the negative, or, perhaps I do. Why one feels the need to criticize another practitioner for differing beliefs is caused by something that exists inside all of us, something called EGO. Some individuals are very self centered and narcissistic, unable to curb or release that bit of themselves that says they are always right, or better than another, that part that thirsts for peer approval and recognition. They can't begin to accept the validity of any other's beliefs as theirs is the one true belief in their personal version of the world. This is something that has caused much hate, strife and wicked acts down through history.

BUT, I do not believe it is EGO alone that drives one eBay seller/practitioner to condemn the beliefs of another, though this is an important factor, especially with certain sellers. The other reason is financial pure and simple. By making it appear as some are not as forthright and truthful, as learned, or as powerful as others, this tips the scale in the favor of the one who reveals the alleged 'information' or dis-information as the case may be.

This is not to say that true fraud should not be revealed, but who is to judge what constitutes fraud in our field. Because beliefs on the metaphysical differ or vary greatly, this does not constitute fraud by one or the other. Lying about ones background or experience may constitute fraud, depending on the reasons behind the deception. Not revealing one's true name or location does not constitute fraud, just caution in today's Internet and privacy driven world. Lying about one's true experience, if one lacks any real magickal experience is certainly fraud on some levels.
My point here is this, for one seller to criticize another for differing beliefs is something more than likely done by one who seeks not just peer approval but financial gain as well. Real evidence of fraud is not something easy to define or to find. Any guides, blogs, forum posts, etc... that blithely declare fraud should be looked at with an open mind. Examine the evidence, IF any real evidence is submitted, and make up your own mind based on proof NOT rumor or supposition. Ours is a rumor driven society and sadly in our world of instant media, rumor quickly becomes accepted as fact.

Buddha: Believe nothing just because a so-called wise person said it. Believe nothing just because a belief is generally held. Believe nothing just because it is said in ancient books. Believe nothing just because it is said to be of divine origin. Believe nothing just because someone else believes it. Believe only what you yourself test and judge to be true.

Harry Emerson Fosdick: The fact that astronomies change while the stars abide is a true analogy of every realm of human life and thought, religion not least of all. No existent theology can be a final formulation of spiritual truth. The Living of These Days, 1956

Here is an interesting and thought provoking forum that I was drawn into that illustrates some of my points---PISSED CONSUMER
Lately someone/ones have been posting about me as well as posting in my name.

UPDATE: Saturday August 15---I have added a separate post about this ongoing problem and how many of the Pissed Consumer(and other sites too) ultra negative posts were and are being manipulated by ONE person, who, though not the writer on all, has goaded others into behaving in this manner by sending lying emails to various parties. Many of us that were at odds have now come together and talked and a big realization of the manipulation has come forth. Please! DO NOT let one ultra negative and borderline mentally ill personality disorder afflicted individual bring us down to this level.

UPDATE : Sunday July 12----This site above-Pissed Consumer, has become one where a few immature and very negative posters are attempting to discredit me with silly inane posts. I find it funny actually and feel great sadness for the darkness in their souls that causes them to post the made up nastiness they do. Some posts are even being made in my name but it's apparent to any rational person who reads them that it is not me. The bad thing about that site is that ANYONE can post under ANY NAME!

I have stated this in an earlier post but to reiterate, I am NOT the one who investigated any other sellers to expose them as liars, fakes, frauds or whatever. After I saw the info I did check it out myself just like many others did and I DID find it compelling BUT I am NOT the one who compiled the info or started ANY investigation against ANYONE.

I Do use my real info on my accounts, I DO live in Marysville BUT NOT with any of my family members as posted by 'someone' who falsely claims they know me. I DO live next door to my antique shop. I do NOT have a son or ANY other children. I do NOT have five, or ANY ex-husbands, only my one who has passed. I am NOT from the Bronx, I'm a native Californian.

My REAL name and PHONE # are listed in the phone book AND on my antiques listings on eBay. I many times have a widget on my metaphysical auctions showing my antique selling account and when not, I DO state that I sell antiques under another ID and will give it to any who contact me. I have done this SINCE DAY ONE as A_NEW_GOLDEN_DAWN on ALL my listings under that ID.

My close family, INCLUDING my father and close friends all know about my metaphysical sites and my 'GIFT'-we discuss it all the time. IN FACT several of them have 'The Gift' and/or are practitioners also. My mother, before she passed away had planned to work WITH me on eBay. She knew very well about my abilities to see and communicate with spirits, I inherited these abilities from BOTH her and my Grandmother.

I am NOT any of the seller friends they accused me of being. I AM a seller of antiques on eBay, I have just recently registered a few names on eBay to sell ON CONSIGNMENT, spells, potions, energetic items, magickals, etc... from some of my Grams elderly practitioner friends who do not use computers. I may or may not use these ID's and may choose to offer their items on my A_NEW_GOLDEN_DAWN account only.
I am NOT the eBay sellers TheDarkNecro, Old_Blue_Dog, Silver_cup, Treasures_from_the_Mystic_World, Garage_Producer, etc... These are SEPARATE INDIVIDUALS now selling on eBay as anyone who has purchased from them can attest to.

All of this info is stuff I have posted on my blog previously or on forum posts but these negative and troubled poster/posters seem to be trying to present it as 'secret' information on me they 'just discovered'.
I do not totally hide my beliefs from the local populace in my town, but I do not advertise them either. Many of my shop customers DO know my beliefs. Sometimes, though it may be cowardly of me, I do say I'm an Atheist just to not get caught up in 'Satanic' discussions -- as some hard core fundamentalists believe all alternate beliefs to be based in.

Our town and surrounding area has a flourishing albeit somewhat hidden population of practitioners and believers. I would love to open a true metaphysical shop here but the one that did open in a local mall several years ago caused such a stir a picket line and boycott of the entire mall was organized by a large local church. The shop soon closed and it was not even a true metaphysical shop, more of a Pagan themed gift shop.

I am not upset by the postings and accusations being made against me, I consider the source, but I do take exception to the removal of my forum posts to censor my answers to them. You see, I have nothing to fear because unlike some, I have no hidden or secret past, nor one concocted to make me seem a more legitimate or mysterious person. I will continue to post here as items are removed or silly claims made. You see I truly feel that the more these individuals reveal their silliness, immaturity, and negativity, the more people see their true 'faces'.

I will never run about claiming to be 'defamed' or 'stalked' like some as I realize these few very negative posters are just sad, lame, desperate individuals who live to spread dissension. Whether they do this to increase their own sales by putting down other sellers or just as troublemakers, that's for others to figure out.

I'M BACK!!!!!



UPDATE AUG. 14: Little 'Cash' and his brother 'Mau-Mau' are now entering the cat equivalent of the 'teen years'! They are the biggest pest cats I have ever had! Cash insists on nursing on my fingers and ears constantly. He wakes me up several times a night licking my nose or patting my face. Not like I get a good nights sleep anyway! My bed usually holds me and 2, sometimes 3 dogs, another one sleeps underneath and now two wild cat kittens! Hardly room for me anymore! They are so cute but a BIG pain. I have decided to keep the two of them because we are so bonded even though I had really intended to find them homes. I just love THEM and can't give them up!!! I will be adding some new pictures very soon!

AND HERE THEY ARE!











A BIG hello to all my friends and customers! I'm back from my recuperating vacation! My knee injury was needing surgery and that required me to take a much needed rest. I should have had it done years ago when I first injured it skiing. (I fell off the ski lift-DON'T LAUGH!!!) but I toughed it out. It only bothered me sometimes but I re-injured it while on a 'rescue mission' to save orphaned trapped baby kittens. The babies are all right, cute chubby little bottle fed angels that are in my face ALL the time. I'm their mom! In fact they are both trying to help me type right now!

This is a short post today-just to let everyone know I'm back and alive and will be listing lots of marvelous things very soon. I need about another week or two to get up to speed and then watch for a massive listing push! I will be returning emails to many of you soon! Thanks for your well wishes!

The pictures above show my one little 'pain in the knee' who my niece has named 'Cash'. Such a sweetie but now bottle weaned under extreme protest. I can't tell you how many times I've awoken from a drug induced sleep to the two of them standing on my face and licking my nose. They quickly learned how to get out of their box and after I woke up a few times to them snuggled up against me, I did not have the heart to lock them up. I gave up and gave them a pillow to sleep on next to me.

I have two local investigations to go on as soon as I'm up to it. My friend 'D', also an eBay metaphysical seller, has been visiting and photographing a local Gold Rush era cemetery and has captured some wonderful pictures of spirit activity. There are actually open crypts to investigate and photograph. 'D' practiced in Sedona, AZ for many years so he is very into New Age concepts and Native American practices as well as spiritualism. I have not been able to walk well enough to go with him so I'm massively jealous.

The other place my small group will be visiting soon is an abandoned farm house that had, according to local and family lore, a violent mass murder occur. I can't wait to go and have made the others wait for my knee to heal. AND while we are on the subject of mass murder, we have plans to visit the local orchard where mass murderer Juan Corona buried many of his victims. A ritual spirit summoning and seance is planned by one of my friends and I have plans to use a special spirit communication vessel of my Grandmothers.

I will post more tomorrow, I have lot's to talk about, including some more thoughts on the Mega-Meta-War that seems to be raging away! So much negativity from some people, it's sad and it hurts us all!

Gram's Visions and Synchronicity

The idea of 'synchronicity' is implicit in many of Gram's visions, your actions now will influence the outcomes of future events seeming totally unrelated. The theory of synchronicity is that seemingly unrelated events ARE interconnected, this is in direct contrast to causal relationships that are understood as simultaneous—that is, the cause and effect occur at the same time.

Synchronous events reveal an underlying pattern, a conceptual framework which encompasses, but is larger than, any of the systems which display the synchronicity. The suggestion of a larger underlying framework is essential in order to satisfy the definition of synchronicity as originally developed by Swiss psychologist Carl Gustav Jung.

Jung coined the word to describe what he called "temporally coincident occurrences of acausal events." Jung variously described synchronicity as an "acausal connecting principle", "meaningful coincidence" and "acausal parallelism". Jung introduced the concept as early as the 1920s but only gave a full statement of it in 1951 in an Eranos lecture and in 1952, published a paper, Synchronicity — An Acausal Connecting Principle, in a volume with a related study by the physicist (and Nobel laureate) Wolfgang Pauli.

It was a principle that Jung felt gave conclusive evidence for his concepts of archetypes and the collective unconscious, in that it was descriptive of a governing dynamic that underlies the whole of human experience and history—social, emotional, psychological, and spiritual. Events that happen which appear at first to be coincidence but are later found to be causally related are termed as "incoincident".

Jung believed that many experiences that are coincidences due to chance, in terms of causality, suggested the manifestation of parallel events or circumstances in terms of meaning, reflecting this governing dynamic.

One of Jung's favorite quotes on synchronicity was from Through the Looking-Glass by Lewis Carroll, in which the White Queen says to Alice: "It's a poor sort of memory that only works backwards".

What this means for you is that things you do, choices you make, no matter how unimportant they may seem in the grand scheme of things, really do matter a great deal. Sometimes more than that even! The choices influence which divergent 'path' our dimensional time line takes, some paths lead to great things but others are devastating in their out comes.
