Time Is An Illusion

December 12, 2013

Time is an illusion

Ever since we went back to Standard time, I feel as if time goes by much more slowly now.  I look at the clock at times and think I am late, yet I find I have plenty of time.  Other times it feels as if the days move more slowly.  I know there are still 60 seconds in every hour and 24 hours in a day – wonder what is happening.

I will admit this past week or more has moved too swiftly for orders that 2 clients want for the middle of December.  Fortunately one is in and on its way, the other I still am not sure about.  If she gets on her horse and provides info, vector art and Illustrator, we can do those.  These are nail biters and I don’t like when they happen.  I prefer much  more time so no one is feeling anxious – most especially me.

timeI’m still working this cartoon out – I am a sucker for cats, so that’s why I put it in.

I started thinking about this when I would be doing something and have to check the clock – then find out very time had gone by.  That seemed odd because so often time flies when I am concentrating on something.   Lately I have been telling myself “There’s plenty of time” when I am feeling rushed and not sure I will there on time.  (That is a whole different subject).  Other times I will decide “I’ll get there when I get there” and not get so antsy.  Hmmm, have I been programming myself without realizing it?  Certainly wouldn’t be the first time!

I was looking at the phrase Time Is An Illusion – amazing what came up about it.  Leigh Brasington wrote this in the New Yorker around 2005 –

Time, as we know it, is only an illusion. We usually think of time as having three parts – Past, Present, Future. But what is the Past – only a collection of memories. We can’t experience the Past, we can only remember it. And we can only remember it in the Present (furthermore, our memories are noticeably unreliable). There is no objective thing that we call the Past; it can’t be measured in any way; our only contact with it is in the Present.  And what is the Future – only a mental construct in the Present. We can’t experience the Future until it “becomes” the Present. Until then it only a hope and dream.

As I have been learning more metaphysical things, time isn’t linear as we think.  It is more vertical and everything is happening right now.  I have to admit, I have this  still simmering on the back burner, it’s how I process things.  I have always been taught it is linear, that Past, Present and Future come one after the next.  To wrap my brain around a completely opposite view takes more time, but I am working on the idea things I have been taught from a very age may not always be true.

I am learning more about my past lives – only bits and pieces right now.  We tend to think our existence has only been in this world – to think in terms of being from another world before we came here takes a long simmer on the burner.  I haven’t quite grasped it yet and there isn’t much information about my former world, so it is still an idea and not quite real.  No, I haven’t gone off the deep end – I am not even sure I should write this right now.  To some it is in the realm of Woo Woo, Goofball and Hocus Pocus.

In that case, how about a little humor about it?

Cartoon 3

He is so much happier with his Mac Pro now.  We have spent so much money repairing and debugging that Dell laptop.  He was so frustrated with it at times that he was ready to throw it out the window.

I will  admit this post has taken a lot longer than usual, by now I am not even sure what I had in mind in the first place.  It may seem rather disjointed, it does happen with a post once in a while.

Woo Woo, Goofballs and Hocus Pocus Water

February 24, 2013


Although it doesn’t show everything, it does give you a good idea of some of the modalities can be used.  To see it larger, go to Katie’s blog.

In the past few years I have been looking into Alternative Medicine since I am not all that happy with traditional medicine.  I am tired of pills, blood tests, and all of that – certainly isn’t doing good things to my body.  I am working on what the root cause of my experience is and what in my thought patterns, emotions, energy, etc. – what people might call woo-woo, airy fairy or touchy feel stuff.  Since it is out of the mainstream, most people think it is a lot of baloney.  However, I am finding more and more that it is helping me and it is a community I feel more at home.

I have often felt out-of-place and uncomfortable in the business world where cold calls,  networking and all that “Life is real, Life is earnest” competitive stuff.  I decided to have fun with my promotional marketing business and see how that works.  Though I have found in the last two years I haven’t been working with my business because of Mom and taking care of her affairs, a broken hip and lately with finding an adult family home, then applying for Medicaid and then 5 weeks of flu.

So in between taking care of all those things, I have had some regular clients still ordering and I have done a lot of work on myself.  I have a couple of immediate goals, one is to get my energy back and continue working on my healing and spiritual awareness.  I also am at a crossroads in my life – do I want to continue promotional marketing or go with a specific direction?  I also have some things I want to do that are my own, this is now the time for me to do it.

Part of woo woo is  angel cards, oracle cards or tarot cards.  I have been receiving Monday morning Soul Card Readings – all of them are spot on about going in my own direction.  To have courage, stand up for myself, empowerment, generosity, even one about writing.  I am listening more to my intuition – I actually have it after all – and beginning to trust it.  This is one of the cards that came from Doreen Virtue’s Ascended Masters deck, the other is from Denise Linn’s Gateway Oracle Guidebook:


Yesterday when I was having my massage, Debye was working on the back of my left hip and suddenly the words “stuck energy” came up.  Later I told her about it and she said she felt the release of energy when she was working there.  To some that just  touchy feel stuff and weird or oddball – it really isn’t anything.  It felt right to me.

I am married to a Point A to Point B guy – the straightest path between 2 points.  I am a Scenic Route.  This applies to traveling in the car as well as how we talk or do things.  I don’t say much to him about what I am learning and experiencing because he thinks it’s goofball stuff.  We are each entitled to our own opinions, his interests are aviation, car and heavy-duty trucks and their parts, what’s going on in the world and at home – he doesn’t understand my stuff.  We always used to say “You don’t have to be crazy to live in our family, but it helps”.

0009776_zwiesel-1872-enoteca-stemmed-water-glass_320One thing I learned from Debye was asking Dr Lang – an ascended master – to put his “something something” in a glass of water by my bed at night.  In the morning, I would drink it.  He saw me doing this for quite a while and finally asked what was I doing?  Was it hocus pocus water?  Rather than explain, I told him “Yes, it is.”  I think there are times when he doesn’t quite know what to make of me, what I think and what I do.  I found a really cool stemmed glass at Good Will for my hocus pocus water.

I would have had this post done on  Friday but I have been looking through the Soul Card Monday readings looking for certain cards that came up.  Then I spent a lot of time trying to get them on the same line, but I keep forgetting that what I see as I write is wider than the actual blog.  Hence photos have a tendency to not fit it.  I am still getting the hang of how to put things in and to make it look good.  I also spent a long time looking for something to illustrate woo woo or goofball – mostly what I found for woo woo was a drink that had booze in it, not quite what I had in mind.  Well, that’s the thing about writing a blog, sometimes everything really clicks and other times it gets a bit cattywampus.  This week is cattywampus.  Enjoy!
