Kali’s Way: Decapitate the Demon and Wear its Head as an Accessory

320px-kaliposter1940sKali, the Hindu Dark Goddess of Time and Destruction is startling figure of carnage. The gruesome necklace of heads around her neck drips blood onto her bare breasts as she stands poised for battle or for a carnal embrace. In the West many misinterpret those heads as human. But in actuality they are the heads of demons that she has slain. Her unabashed sense of self has always had a great appeal, especially nowadays to a new generation of women who refuse to be silenced, held back or held down. But in my case, my peers still struggle to rein me in every now and then when I can’t contain my righteous anger. Throughout my own life I have suffered abuse first as a child and later as an adult. But today abuse seems to have come out of the closet and become the standard bearer for the Patriarchy as it begins to struggle in very public death throes around the world. Remember  the remark about “pussy grabbing” that was almost dismissed as “locker room talk?” This is the Patriarchal tactic of invoking the myth that women actually want to be “pussy grabbed” by rich, entitled white men. As I recall it didn’t go over well, did it?

Mea culpa. When Fox News in Chicago reported that Angela Ferguson grabbed a beer stein and fought off her attacker (rapist)  I experienced a new kind of “feels” that I identify as “power.”

“When I kept hitting him, hitting him, he wouldn’t give up. He wouldn’t give up. I kept beating him, and seen blood everywhere. They say he had to have three surgeries on his head,” Ferguson said.

Somehow Ferguson pushed Grice out of her room, but she said he broke the door down and got back in. That’s when she grabbed a crowbar from under her bed and fought him off once and for all.

I’ve been molested and so let me make something perfectly clear, if I had  the opportunity to fight off my molester with a crow bar I may have suffered more physical harm, but the emotional toll would have been far less. In fact if I had the opportunity to bash in his head in self defense I guarantee you that I would have slept soundly that night. Because I’m a woman I already know that some of you are cringing with distaste at my confession, but I’d like to tell my sisters out there who have been raped or molested that wanting to beat down the ass of your rapist/attacker is perfectly normal. And please don’t tell me that being molested doesn’t warrant a proper head bashing. It’s not going to work.

In fact it’s much healthier if you embrace it and accept it instead of internalizing some missed placed guilt over it being “your fault.” This is what I identify as “Decapitating the Demons.” Accept the fact that you want blood, revenge and retribution. Do something pro-active. Buy a gun and learn how to use it responsibly. Take a class in martial arts and self defense. Put cameras up around your home. Carry a stun gun or pepper spray  in your purse. Don’t just roll over and take it. You don’t have to accept the cultural brainwashing that we must submit to being victims in order to be “good” people. I would not “turn the other cheek” if a rapist’s cock was being shoved up my ass. Would you?

I have my own “necklace of demon heads” and I add a new one every couple of years. I’mhead not proud of it, but I’m also not ashamed of it. It is there to remind me that I cannot rely on someone else, the police, the government a boyfriend or even a stranger to protect me. And there’s something more. In Kali’s hand she holds her newest severed head without shame, and without malice. She just holds it and we can see it’s frightened eyes. Think of it as a “deterrent.”

Listen carefully now.

It’s okay for people to know that you are not someone who is going to be an easy target, a willing victim or a passive plaything for their perverse enjoyment. You don’t have to roll over every single time and “play dead” just to “play nice.” If someone repeatedly insists on attacking you for no other reason than they enjoy it, or it fulfills some warped psychological need, then  you don’t have to allow them to get bored with you and move on. You are allowed to “sever their head.” Read the laws. Follow the rules … but take that head and hold it in your hand for all to see.

I Changed My Frequency and It Changed My Life

frequency-015

For students of metaphysics and meditation frequency and the manipulation and transformation of it are essential to spiritual growth. According to Mind Body Green

There are five major categories of brain waves, each corresponding to different activities. Meditation enables us to move from higher frequency brain waves to lower frequency, which activates different centers in the brain.

I’ve meditated for years, but it was not until a fateful meeting in April that a catalyst entered into my life that forever changed how I applied my studies in mediation and the occult. That wonderful agent provocateur is my close friendtony and writing partner, Tony Sokol.  Coincidentally, or maybe not, we were both into the vampire scene in the 90’s. While Tony was writing and staging the celebrated Vampire Theater in New York, I was Entertainment Tonight’s original “Vampire Expert.” He was kind enough to quote me in his article, “Interview with the Vampire: 40 Years of Remorseful Bloodsuckers” in the pop culture powerhouse DEN OF GEEK.

“Only the genius of a woman exorcising her own demons could have created a vampire rockstar to whom the modern woman would willingly offer her tender throat,” Marie Bargas, aka King, who was the Vampire Expert on Entertainment Tonight in the nineties, said after an impromptu interview. “Akasha’s unbridled madness is an aphrodisiac to Lestat until he is figuratively under her feet and he becomes the Shiva in supplication to her Kali.”

From then on we became “besties” and Tony was continuously encouraging me to do more writing and to come back to the forefront in the media in some way, shape or form. We have since launched our own ezine ENTERTAINMENT 2MORROW. When we met I was being stalked by whack job fraud who I had helped expose as a Stolen Valor. Since then she had sworn to “ruin” me and since she lives off the government she endless amounts of time to do just that. Tony helped me get through that by stressing that creativity is how artists “exorcise our demons” and he was so right.

I was also in a dead end relationship with a man who threatened suicide on the average of every 3 days FOR A YEAR. Imagine putting up with that. And no amount of meditation and yoga could fix it. It was not until I was inspired by a desire to live a better life that I left that relationship and began a 6 month journey that forced me to move several times.  It was through that journey that meditation and devotion got me through without fear and hopelessness.  The sheer stress shaved pounds off faster than any diet I’ve tried.  Suddenly, I was a pretty woman again. During this time I was extremely fortunate to be working with some of the most gifted psychics and healers in Los Angeles at Mystic Journey Bookstore in Venice, CA.  And so with the combined support of friends and colleagues every day marked and improvement.

Today, I woke up to watch the sun rise while I sipped some fresh French Press coffee which is my elixir of life. My new beau is sleeping peacefully and I’ll be waking him up in a few minutes with coffee in bed. He is a man that I’ve loved for almost 2 decades. During my time in the emotional “wilderness” he came back into my life without all the bullshit that had kept us apart for almost 2 decades. We reunited under the red sun colored by the LA Fires and moved in together on the night of the recent Black Moon. He knows me. He has watched me grow. He has loved me even when he hated me. And we are finally together in a home that is beautiful and secure.

To all my friends and fans my best advice is that practice and devotion are not enough. Changing yourself and your circumstances raises your vibration and your frequency in unison with your meditation. Do not be afraid to risk everything to get your life back. Sometimes it is the price of living the life you want instead of the life you settle for.

This morning as I prepare to go to the shop to do readings I am confident that whatever problems or crisis my clients may have I am well suited to give them the best advice … because I survived and flourished during my own “Heroine’s Journey.”

Need to Relax, Cleanse and Unblock? Call a Remote Energy Tech. Part #1: The Crash that Changed My Life

Kali_lithographIf you had asked me about the Galactic Federation of Light a Year ago I would have very politely said that I knew of them, but really had nothing much to do with them. Years of occult training in witchcraft and more recently in yoga and tantra would have brought out the metaphysical snob in me. You see, although my dharma is to be a reader and healer of sorts, I’ve been wary of Angels and Light Beings, not because I’m afraid of the Light, but because I’ve been wary of the prejudice often pointed at people like myself who work with both the dark and the light. As a Kashmir Shaivist, I identify the Divine Feminine as the Dark Goddess or Kali who is a Destroyer and Swallower of time. Hence, I never imagined that I’d be working so much with the Lighter more Angelic forces, at least not those in human form, because frankly humans are subject to prejudice. The truth is that the God(s) and Angels have no such qualms. They are literally “hanging out” in other dimensions getting along better than we ever could. And as I type this, imagine them looking down upon us and shaking their heads at the mess we’ve made of the world so far … when they gave us a Garden of Eden and asked us to just learn how to get along.

FA668B28-03CA-448D-94E0-43789D34FEF7On November 7th 2015 I was driving to work at Mystic Journey in Venice, CA and the driver behind me looked up and saw a UFO.  He was so distracted that he drove his Monster Truck right into the back of my Mazda 626  there in the middle lane of the 405 FWY. The impact would have killed me if I had not been belted. There on the side of the road, I saw the look of relief in his face when I exited my crushed Mazda to get his information because I was ALIVE.  I made it as far as half way to him before I collapsed on the ground in shock. The ambulance and the police were called. I did not find out until later that the impact had popped open all my chakras from behind.  Let me tell you, the pain was excruciating.  It was excruciating for months and months and during that time I had to find other ways to manage it because I refused to become a zombie addicted to pain medication.

100220-1One of the things that I turned to was using tuning forks placed directly on my muscles to relax them and as I continued to do that, not out of curiosity, but necessity, I discovered that they were actually like wands in my hands. I could infuse them with intent and “do things” that I had never imagined that I could do. Mind you, I would not have studied this so intensely if it had not been for the pain. But then again, I told you that I worship Shakti in the form of Kali … and her lessons are never subtle. Kali knows me too well. She knows I can become easily distracted. So, she gave me two pinched nerves, as revealed by an MRI, to guarantee that I would learn how to use these forks in an accelerated time, not only to suffer the consequences, but to suffer … period … unless I could crack the code. It was do it or else. I did it, not out of any great need for scholarship, not because I’m a great guru, or shaman, but for the simple fact that the drive from my home to work is almost 60 minutes and I refused to drive on medication, so it was either find a way to get there without pharma … or stay at home defeated.

As we enter into a time of uncertainty where there is more political unrest than there has been in quite some time, especially here in the United states where we have been sheltered from radical change and unrest, the comforting presence of Lakshmi the Goddess of Fortune is an island of security and peace that can weather any storm. The beauteous consort of the Preserver Vishnu bring s not only wealth, but fortune and prosperity both material and spiritual. Too many beloved artists have passed in such a short time. Too many people are being killed. Terrorism has reared it’s ugly head and everywhere people are angry, disappointed and in shock. It’s time to bring in the energy of Lakshmi through to sustain us through these dark days so that we can be self contained centers of peace.
