Free Online or Doing Readings For Yourself With Quality

Giorello by Araminta.

Free Online or Doing Readings For Yourself With Quality

Many times in life we need to do a reading for ourselves or get a free reading.

Be sure I needed it a lot of times as I'm a normal human being and sometimes I was not able to pay for a professional work with the ones I respect a lot due their vision.

When we have a personal reading the first is the ideas about how the symbols are presented by someone else doing it for us. And since the beginning in the 70s, I used to observe the cards and symbols to get what they was looking for. So I was looking to the cards and symbols presented, not just to the person behind me. This helped me to learn very early about the "general image" idea for a reading, not just the former texts, but how that was like a kind of "scenario" to the situation presented.
As I had working for my spiritual developmente early, with time I was able to "sense" when there was a real "ray of light" coming from some spiritual level or not.
Since the first readings I had, I loved a lot the ones where I learned about what their was doing just observing the way and how some shown to be so great. Like to learn how to do a great reading just using only one card and I posted about at the post "Extreme Tarot Readings and Some of The Art Behind It".

A great Oracle/Tarot reading is not that one when you only listen "easy words", but when it really present what you need to know, why and for what. Another reason with time I found to work in my personal works to study and develop myself to present "guidance", instead of just talking about current events nor to be limited to the symbols I get during a reading.


Reading for yourself. Keep out of the interpretation!

When we do a reading for ourselves the better is to work as doing a reading to someone else, an unknown one.

Why? May be the first problem our "lust for results".

No! The first matter, not a problem is you need to have courage to deal with it.

Courage! You must be like a spiritual warrior after your own freedom, your life!

To many people (adepts of sin IMHO) talk that is not good to try a reading for yourself. Some even goes really worst and try to say it's like a "sin" if you do a reading for yourself.

I fully disagree. 


The main challenge is when you do a reading for yourself, too often you will be lusting for results.

The same as using an online tool for a reading at internet, this means you must be able to be apart, and think more about what you got.

So, always get the first reading to study. Be using your own cards or an online tool.

Think about this phrase: "if you want to see, be ready to what you get".

For sure there are a lot of bad online tools. Or better, there's a lot of really very bad online tools.
Not much different if you is not skilled at oracle reading and try using it by yourself without studying more. 

If you are studying an oracle and doing your own reading, never feel shame to have yoru books aside to research more about what you get.
If you are not using such online tools, you is the one taking the cards, uhmmm, not really the same. You have to get the first cards and meditate serious about what you got.
This is a personal reading. Have the courage to accept what you are getting.
Courage is needed to do your own path in life.
Is needed to remember each own may have a personal war to deal, so what is really big to someone may appears easy to another.


No matter if is a personal reading done by yourself or an online reading too you must observe your first feelings about until you get confidence even at your guts too,



This is the basic to have some idea about doing a reading for yourself.

Reading machine from the Big movie.

Online Oracles

Now I will cite some online oracle tools I found with these years and I really like that.

My main suggestions is: Always take the first reading, no matter if you dislike it.
Ok, I found some online tools will be extreme wrong, and this is how I got the list I will present bellow. Meanwhile, as you do your own experiences, you must use a different online tool to check, never the same.

But do not repeat the same asking to an oracle. The only acceptable is asking: "please, explaing the previous message". BUT never, never ask a new reading for the same question, be your own reading or an oracle tool.


For an interesting point I observed to be very serious: the I-Ching, no matter how you use it, when people want to ask the same thing again, is very famous to present a warning reply about "not being serious".

Even at former personal oracle readings we are under the same rules about get what is show.



So do not abuse of personal nor online oracles.


I will cite some I have been working and I really like the results.

Each one is specific and must be used with respect.

Note: The same way I always evoke the spirits for a reading to any oracle I use, I always do the same when using any of the following oracles.
This means, yes, I raise my hands toward the computer screen and do my evocation.
I really found a lot of difference doing that as the reading becomes very formal.


Some websites I rated to be 100% and I suggest for different works or areas:

Here I give my testimony: I have used the following ones for years with near Zero error when compared (even for checking) against my inner vision and my personal formal readings about the events related.

To repeat: The following ones I give my personal near 100% about quality:

Fourthdimension's Crowley Thoth On-line Tarot Reading - I love this. This is a formal celtic cross spread with the original texts for each card. The website do no tries to comment the reading, just present the original text. A great site when you have not your deck and want to read by yourself. Be sure to pay atention HOW the cards are selected, here is why I love it! It's a formal AC suggested reading, since the first card to show what area the question is related due the former method.

I CHING ONLINE - Fantastic! To me, the best I-Ching site. I stronggly suggest to remember I-Ching have proper rules (cited at the site). I'm using the I-Ching since the 70s so I observed the same to happens: if you start arguing, the oracle will give direct messages about your intents or ideas.... This is the formal I-Ching way to piss you.
Really a great site. The random aspect goes out as you is the one on controle to press the key to get each line (I use this methosd always).
Realy very good material.
One I suggest for donnations too. A few from each one will help them to keep the great work.

Egyptian Tarot using Kier cards - Portuguese version (better use)
Egyptian Tarot using Kier cards - English version
This is a site for Egyptian tarot readings with the Kier editors cards. Very good! I don't know the author in person, she is Nelise Carbonare Vieira, but presents a very nice work and also is suitable for personal readings with her (recommended).
Note: I found the english version very simple compared with the english one. Appears to work the same way, just not so nice as the portuguese version. Ok people, please remember not all of us have the time to make two entire websites, OK? She deserves my respect also.
The main website is in portuguese, so do your homework and use Google translator, no troubles here.
The random reading to me always was really very Ok. All cards I got have been direct into the question.
The material is very good; She also have a very complete book about the use of this deck plus all cards study and all of that is available even to study online if you have patience. Or give the merit and buy the ready PDF with all that, really a bargain.
The egyptian Kier deck is a wide source to study and to the ones already on the Tarot and more the Egypt deck, will find the presented cards use to be really very accordingly the question asked.

The llewellyn Tarot Reading
Feel free to call me stupid. I don't know how to reach this since the initial website page! So save this link!
This is a great one, with the choice for eight different deck plus different spreads.
Here something I observed, and this is related with each deck.
Each deck was created for a different vision, so you MAY be carefull to remember each one is related to a very different spirits area.
For example, I use to call the Celtic Dragons to present their wisdom. Hey, Dragons! To often they have no compassion and will present the really crude aspects you have to learn.
The Llewellyn deck use to be the formal tarot and is always Ok.
The Witches tarot is just this. Very good when you are dealing with magic wars or just witches acting, even if this is yourself. So, just a witches point of view.
The Fairy Ring is fantastic to show when something at any magic areas is acting. This includes the areas you have not training. This option also have been good when the source is ATR or is related with spirits of dead.

My suggestion is to explore each one as you found better.



These are my personal main suggestions, result from years searching and trying.


To finish: Please, reread my previous comments about how to read for yourself. To be simple, do your prayer to open the gate and get the first reply. Do it with courage.

Reading for Yourself. How Ensure Objectivity in Personal Readings? Some notes.

Mirror Gazing. As an oracle too, what you see?
Unkonow photo author.


Someone questioned: I sometimes find it difficult to be objective when we do personal readings. So, my question is: how do you ensure objectivity in personal readings? I usually write it down in the third person as if I were speaking to someone else. Other methods?


My Reply:

At any oracle, Tarot, Runes, etc. a reading to someone else or just for yourself must be objective. 

Think on Meditation and Therapy.

Yes. something I found to be needed is therapy.

So is needed to be as most as possible like a third person, even about yourself. 

Meditation will lead into yourself. And what you will find there? Ego, traumas, a lot of personal problems and even from past lives to deal with.

Well, you can become a hero and deal with all that alone.

But there are a lot of methods that help to learn faster and will help to deal and even cleanup all that mess.

A good therapy is a very valuable resource.

Many schools use that and yes, many cases are well resolved with psychologists.
Ok, have some patience with the psychologists too.  :rofl

Once I got a female psychologist, and I commented to her some of my occult background. The result was funny: she had a real strong fear from me. She always used to keep at the opposite side of the room and each time she gave a reply, she used to say something like "I ask permission to all your degrees to suggest that... blah-blah-blah...". At third meeting she was presenting me some texts and books about the "crazy ones genious in history" and suggesting to introduce psychotropic drugs...  LOL...

So I moved to another one, and just presented what I was in need to work, but no information about occult works. The guy did a fantastic specific work in just [b]two [/b]one hour meetings. Dot.

There are a lot of alternative therapies. As a sannyasin, I did a lot and my Master Osho told just this about, the need of cleaning, improving yourself and to save a lot of time.

Just to note, at the alternative therapies area, there are a lot of formal practices like the ancient Ayurvedic medicine, acupunture, Gurdjeff, etc, etc., that at many western countries still are not formally recognized, even with thousands years of practice.
And there are many workshops to work on specific areas of life, some last 2-3 days and even more, when people usually goes to some place and stay there doing an immersion to work that. For sure, the results vary a lot for each one accordingly your concioussness level and what you are working with.

Most of times, the good workshops with formal trained therapists do more in few days than you will get instead of working alone for a long time. Some of that workshops may be at easy levels while others may present workings where you will be really and deep faced with the possibility of dealing with deeper points.
In my specific case, I missed the opportunity to go to Poona in India while Osho was alive for the stupidest reason: a marriage and accepting due the wrong reasons the opinion of my ex-wife. Ok, I paid to learn that. But I never gave up and continued.
I learned that our personal development is above anything. No one will compensate for your work of self-evolution, just yourself.
I remember Osho used to say that when it comes to your own evolution, your personal work of consciousness, you must be selfish. No one will do it for you, only yourself. Ok, you can try to sell your soul, and lack the evolution.  LOL...
This is that always helped a lot to keep my faith, despite all the problems and even at the most difficult times.
So I continued and I had the opportunity to be at a Ashran with my Master in the Andes mountains, an entire month each year for many times in the 90s, and that was an immersive experience of workshops one after other in the mountain and the woods. Each workshopt was 2-3 days of extreme experiences. The ones who was easy got nice results. Yes, always there are a lot of people who are just mystics and so easy. Others who went deep, have meet big results. What about learn to run in the woods, having to climb a mountain running, blindfolded and with instructors actually chasing you and really hard beating you with wood sticks? I say really serious spanking. No masochism, that guys was really great. Think about to run like that in the middle of large bushes full of thorns that hurts a lot. Yes, we did that at very risk places like ravins and pits. Add to this all the spiritual part. And in my case, the contact with spirits I started many times before. If you had read some of Castaneda works, is this I'm talking. Near same kind of teaching. That school had some very related works and this means, no choice to error. Glad we never had see even a broken leg even with all extreme risk. Only many scrapes and cuts on the skin. One teaching I have for myself was if choose to give up facing the problems may hurt more in the rest of your life. I learned to run where there was no way.
Before someone ask, I fully give thanks to the teachings I experienced and did by myself, but the schools become something very soft later, the instructors I knew have gone and today it appears more like a nice SPA resort for rich people after spiritual tourism.  Still a nice place to visit and some of the current soft works can be interesting to who is not after a fashion life style.


When you take the Tarot for you, remember this is about having some better understanding about yourself.

This is what you will find in a personal reading. You.

Are you ready to look to yourself?


Something I disagree with others is about consider all posible card interpretations. As an oracle reader, you must develop your vision and have just one interpretation to each case.
For sure, this take time to learn, with practice and study.

But what is the right answer? Usually the first idea you get in your mind. Not what you get one second later.
You must be able to get the first impression, like a "flash" of light. That is the reply when working with any oracle.

But you is the one who have to accept what you see.

And trust me, by personal experience, this can be painfull sometimes, just because what the oracle sometime will point is not what you want.


To give an idea as an example too:
A practice I did in the past, is a shamanic method of self healing.
In this case, to heal your eyes if you use glasses.
I use it.
The practice is simple: think the source of the eyes health problems is just because you does not want to see something, nor accept something. In resume, our eyes troubles most often cames due our mind refuse to accept what is seen. This is the general idea.
So you have to compromise yourself and say: "I accept to see and I want to see all I don't want to see".
It's a daily practice. I removed my glasses more and more until I was for many months without wearing glasses.
BUT, see, I started to see a lot I was not wanting to see.
This means, you will see the world, the people, your life, any aspects.

And I became to suffer with that.
I already commented about not being masochist in another posts during personal healing practices nor at any therapy.
Well, after many months I was seeing too much about everything. My senses and visions about people and anything extended to a level I was really unaware to deal. I found a lot more behind all that I was not seeing. Most that was not important to solve nor desirable.
So I stopped with it. And yes, I'm kept fully aware from all that if needed.

Well, the Dalai Lama wear glasses, uhm?


Ok, this is one idea. You may use the oracle and ask to see.
This is why is a very good idea always to do a prayer and invoke a specific angel/spirit/deity to work with you on the reading.
This way you are not only on your knowledge as they will talk with you, develop your intuition.

But you have to ask to see and work to be able to accept what you see, no matters how much you dislike it.

Be sure my human part really hate many readings I do for myself.
One more reason sometimes I ask to others to do a reading for me, even beginners.
My human part need a check, no matters how good I know to be on my oracles and all the feedback I receive, still is my human part, and our mind can cheat us.




The lust for results.

This is one very important aspect about "personal readings": lust for results.

A good reply is when the oracle point a "no way" result.
Ok, you must be able to accept the reply and what is shown. Or be stupid to follow even when the oracle show a problem if you continue.

But there is something that can drive any one into nuts.

So, as I remember for now, there are at least two replies we may get from the oracle that we really dislike:
"Not yet".
"Wait. Things are going to change".

That is a shit!
And why?

You are doing all you can, using all teachings you received while working to change or make something happens.
And you deep need or want that to happens.

Here, the only I have to say is: have patience.

Oh shit!!!!

But sometimes is very hard to have patience when all kind of troubles are knocking at your door.
Or you are working for a long time to get something.

There's something to do?
Yes. One thing I learned is to be humble and talk to others who are on the path. The people who you know are already doing the work.
Remember, you are not alone.

May be some day you will be so high you will be be alone in the highest mountain.
And guess what? You won't be alone if you remember you can talk with the trees, the birds, the mountain himself.
They will talk with you too, just learn to listen.

Birds like to do gossip. This is what they are doing at the trees in the morning and at the eventide.
One more reason I have a place with food to the birds in my garden. They comment about everything they see in the town.
Pay attention to them. Is a way to learn their language.

But anyways, we are humans. I'm not so leveled up to just let any worry.

I survived to many hard events. But I'm human.
Glad I had people to talk with.
And always my full thanks to all who have helped, that is really priceless and never will be forgotten.



So to resume about your personal readings: work to cleanup your life history, develop your intuition, be ready to listen and as possible, get the first message and have a second view from someone else to compare with your results.
This will add power to your readings for other people too as you discover the best is to be clear with them about yourself.
If  you are clear, no masks, you will be objective and people will discover you is a normal person too. I have the same problems most people have, at all areas, be sure. I just had a lot of experiences that become part of my practices and learning and I can share this without fear.
Discovering yourself is part of becoming true.

Changes in the Tarot Readings



Changes in the Tarot Readings

(Portugues: Use o botão Translate no lado esquerdo da tela)



Seat and let's me talk for you.

Once I read something like this:
When you are in front of a Master just ask:
- What to do.
Nothing else is necessary.

With time and personal experiences, I observed more and more I just talk what I see.

As I talk what I see also I observed people and their needs and the ways I can work with that.

Not all people are at spiritual paths. Most are just at normal lifes, have a company, or deal with their homework, or are at the school, whatever.

I'm not here to say you must follow a spiritual path.
But I'm sure anything you do, at some time will be your own path and this is a kind of being spiritual too.
Whatever happens, someday any people will find a main energy ruling life. 


So I did some changes in the Tarot readings I do.

As I work for guidance, at any reading I'm looking first who you are, your path and what to do about.

Then I will look for your questions and others life's areas.

But not all people are after all that information about self-knowledge areas in the same way many just want a guidance for their life or companies.

With time, I have commented more and more, so this make difficult to work with, as not all people are after all that material.

For example, when I comment about numerology, I will make more than a map of your life, but add a lot of information about many areas with suggestions and examples for each case and all that inside a Tarot reading.

And the Tarot part, may goes further a lot about questions and aspects related I'm exploring.

The result is too much work so I need to make some adapt to do it better.


So I found to make some changes and add the option for asking only the Extreme One Card Reading. This part is what demand more of me.


Choose what you need


I will be doing three types of readings:

The Extreme Tarot - One Card Reading.  
This is the extreme reading method I wrote an article times ago. 

Here you can just say what the area you want to know or ask an important question. 
Just seat in front of me and let me talk what is happening at your life and what to do. 
Anyway, I will look deeper at your life and soul for the reply. The result is shorter but focused at the main areas. 
Note: This option is not suitable for asking about works on magic as I need to explore what's happening. For such case use one of the two following complete readings option.


The Standard Tarot/Oracle reading.  
I comment only the oracle parts, so it's more objective but more focused on the practical aspects. 
This includes the extreme reading part plus I will be discussing your questions in many spreads as I found need to get information and present the best sugestions I can.
Note: If you are after woks on magic this is a proper reading.

The  Tarot/Oracle reading commenting Numerology aspects. 
This is also a self-knowledge reading. 
I will first comment your birthday numerology aspects, who you are and how that works as a map to your life. This is a personal study and I strongly suggest you to print it and save for future study. The material I write here are related to all your life and may be re-read and studied in the future many times. 
And this material I will use if you do another later readings as I will be commenting about the from the previous material you received.
The second part is the Tarot readings, plus I will be pointing what aspects of your personal numbers are acting there and why. 
It's become a long size work and unique to each case. 
Note: If you are after woks on magic this is also a proper reading.




Wish this for now help people to find better options.

The Numerology for 2017


Photo by: Rynn (Nightfest)  - USA

The Numerology for 2017

Note: this text will receive some revision in the next days.
(Last edited Feb,9,2017)


We started 2017 with many world events happening, but most was expected, like events in the politics areas, companies doing this or that, people arguing about so many different ideas.

In practice I won’t say thing are not changing. Be sure things will always will change. But the direction is not due global events, as they in practice started at each one acting into his/her personal world and that added to others until that result in big movements.

Everything Is A Cycle
Art by Teagan White - USA
There are cycles in life:
Natura non facit saltus! From Latin: “Nature does not makes jumps!”

This to remember all natural things and change gradually with time. Season's cycles, people you knew and become an adult and you was unaware of it. The tree you saw as a small herb in the middle of the grass grown and now have fruits.

Most of times people does not pay attention to all intermediate events happening, just remember a previous time until something happens and they discover to be far away from the source events.
Each year is just a continuation from the previous, with some remainder energies and new incoming events that will be affected and be observed in different points of view just because you are also changing.





Some background: 

I had commented for years about my vision on the numbers for each year, and glad almost everything I told have been right, including the income years like after that 2012 apocalypse time.See the 2012 Numerology.

That time I was pointed to talk about some future world events. I had commented more at the forums too. Even if I don't like to do any kind of prophecy, I had to do that time as a strong warning and most to people at spiritual areas, mainly the ones at higher levels, because the decades and even two centuries to come. The world is going into that and each year we see that more and more.

Just to remember, we are going each year more and more into the mixing of many practices and religions with other ideas and concepts. Each year information is easier to get anywhere and even the most remote places will be affected someway due this.
And this is not only in the spiritual areas, but also at politics, science, culture, etc. At all places people are collecting information and using it someway, creating some good mixes, but some others not so.
Even at some very fanatics areas we see they using new resources and methods that are against even their self-proclaimed principles, just with the excuse of something be needed. Just hypocrites and opportunists.  
For example, in my country we have a lot of evangelic churches and many of them have been using practices I recognize at once as proper from the African Traditional Religions. Modern practitioners of the traditional areas of Western Magic also have been using methods and techniques from very different sources.No need to cite the cruel terrorists who use anything to show they are just cowards.

In the next years, politics, technology, science, etc. are going to become to be confuse areas too. We’ll find many of them adopting practices from other areas and many, even if with a sincere desire to do the good for others, in practice results in more problems that people are not thinking about just because they does not observe what is the real source of such things.

Muse
Art by Mario Sánchez Nevado - Spain
As 2017 is a number 1 year, we'll see more of this at both sides: some people will be more on acting than thinking while others will be "doing" instead of just acting.  
There are many examples at many areas. At technology companies we'll see more and more a stagnation due some company leaders looking only for gain and lacking to care the minds behind the busines. It's just a matter of times of busines collapse due lack of knowledge. If you don't preserve the professionals who know how and what to do, be sure the newbies will not replace them just because they won't find people to teach them. Newbies can be cheap, but are the olders who keep business with a background and able to be moving.

The spiritual confusion also acts at the society level, I say not just the magicians and witches, but every common people is under such mixing of ideas and practices. Remember most people even without any kind of spiritual practice, are most of times ruled by them. Even if they are not part of some religions, the leaders, business people and governs, most of all times have guidance from people at the spiritual and magic areas. 
The result will be a confusion and that in no ways will be good. We are going fast into a kind of spiritual dark age and in my point of view, in just one more decade things can be really very worse.

This is why I pointed that time to the higher ones to become prepared to support people, to be able to be a light to others and be able to fight against the confusion and work to restore a better level of consciousness but this also will need some decades more.



So let's be moving to act with creativity and to develop our lives!

And now at 2017 we are entering again is a number 1 year, a time for action, changes and even new cycles.
Like the others, this is not a numerology study for each people, but it is about the global energies around for this year, so each one may have an idea how things at global levels will be acting so they can think better how to deal with that.

Even if the energy is global, still you have to work locally, as an individual. No matter what you do, even if you are the President of a big company, a farmer or a salesman, you have your own path and the way you care of your life is what matter.
Each one have a personal path. So in the same way the personal numerology is different even for people who born at the same day as commented at previous articles. You have your family and geographic/social influences acting. Who you was at previous lives, the kind of activities you will be attracted for, your personal evolution. All this matters.

This is one reason why I add comments about the personal numerology at the full readings I do, as the way I work, is not only the Tarot. In practice, I use often use both techniques as I’m talking about how the person is and how that numbers affect the way each event is perceived and how to deal with that. So for sure, the ideal is each one have a personal study for each year, to have a specific analysis of the energies and have better ideas about how to deal with that.

To repeat, no matter the main year number, each one have their own ways to deal with that and a personal path.
This 2017 year will be again a strong example to deal and observe.




The Numbers for 2017

In the numerology 2017 will be a number 1 but this time, not only a simple number 1.

In my vision this year is a pure number 10 (2+1+7=10 an then 1 + 0 = 1) and this add a lot to events and powers related to world events under the western calendar.

Note as in numerology, we sum all digits until get a result. For some years we'll get for example (19 so 1 + 9 = 10 and only then 1 + 0 = 1). But some at some years we have a direct 10 at the first sum result and this is the difference. In this example, I would study the 19, not the 10.

A pure 10 is a powerfull number for any enterprises, at any area. Be personal, companies, countries, etc.


This means I pay special attention to a pure number 10.
The previous one was 2008 (2+0+0+8=10). Just remember how many global changes happened and the results of that we see until today. Many companies and countries even recovered or was able to deal with the changes because that time. See the comments about the spiral of evolution later to get more about this.
We usually see comments about the numbers 1 to 9. But there are some specials. And the number 10 is one of that.



Let’s comment first the basic aspects of the number 1. This is what most people will get.

The 1 means action. To make. To do.
And the number 1 is the start of a new cycle.
What new cycle and action have in common? A new cycle is a movement, the initial step that need to be continued. So this means action.
In general, the 1 is a new cycle of events and related to the learnings of the previous year, always a number 9 when we had plans do make, choices to complete.

Things start at the number 1 and grown each year until the 9 and energy will change the way each personal aspect and life events receive different energies and also change perceptions about the multiple life’s aspects.
For sure new beginnings can be changes in life as the previous are complete or reached the point for a new goal.
Is always good to re-evaluate your goals and this is a good time for this and act.
Sometimes what is needed is to face your fears and change the way you see that.

The same way the number 1 is very positive, due the action power, it also have a negative aspect: to be unable to act, let fears take control even become rigid and this is something that can last for a long if not changed.

So the first idea is about a year about acting and for new beginnings. Finish with the old behind and continue for evolution.


Action At All And With All!

Plan A

Now some about action in my point of view.
I repeat often, I'm not a scholar. I'm a practitioner.
For sure I read a lot, search a lot of antique material, even do a lot of research to decode ancient practices.
I just have not "that" patience to make all that compilations and write nice academic works.
I write the same way I speak in public. As needed, I go after some source to cite, but nothing more most of times.
I like to be in the front area, working, acting. I'm a kind of warrior.
I'm glad to see how many fantastic works our modern scholars have presented.
And the ones I respect more are working really hard in the practice too. 
It's just a matter of choice.
One and other time you will find a text of mine a bit more at that level. But it's rare.
I realy love to find the energy moving, to be at any time and at each day working.

Action!
Salute the new day, care of home and pets while doing a prayer, talk to neighbors and seeing how to help on their needs, observe how the clouds are moving and calling some deities about it, taking the needed time for university lessons, preparing material for a ritual, commenting to some people about how to deal with this or that, doing your job. All this is action!

Whatever you do daily to to improve your life is action!

See, just to repeat the same is just keep the same.
Work to do it better!
I do my bread for three decades and I'm not satisfied! I'm not a good cooker. Because this sometimes I have a needed rest and buy ready bread. Then after a time, I get the work again, study what I'm doing wrong and move again to do a better bread.
Most of of times I do a very good bread, but sometimes that's goes wrong. And some goes very wrong! LOL...   So I work to see what I changed to make it better.
I'm not after a bread of acceptable quality as most do. This is easy, just repeat the same recipe and never try something new.

Get this? Just to repeat is not action. That is only simple repetition.
I'm not after that!

Just to repeat is the same as never learn and never have a real action!

If you want a real result, your action must start at 100% as I learned in the 90s.
You need commitment as a main part of life and spirtual development.
You must action by yourself, never because someone.
The only real commitment is with your own development, your own spiritual evolution. 
That is all counts in life.

The difficult thing is to value this and who maintains their commitment.
Many large companies lose their best employees every day because of this.
Thanks for the comments I had received in years from people of value, yes, I really did all those things spoken in the lectures and a lot more one and other time I cite about the fantastic experiences I had.
I'm not after fashion social aspects nor Harry Potter fantasy tales.


What you have to get is the action energy to reach the real goals you pointed.

How Jupiter would appear at our horizon.
Art by Ron Miller - National Air and Space Museum’s Albert Einstein Planetarium.

What are your goals?

This works the same way in magic and for any area in life.

A common phrase we see a lot, is "all fingers point to the Moon".
But why the Moon as you can point your fingers to any planet and star?
You may be serious to point and do all the needed action to reach your goal!
MOVE ON!


The fingers are not important. What matter is the goal!

This is again the energy you got from this 2017 year, a number 1 presenting lots of opportunities to grow your life acting to reach higher levels.



And here about scholar work.
They do a great job, be sure.
I repeat, thanks to all the good scholar ones and more to all the good practitioners ones!

But to be in the working area, to be a practitioner after results is not the same as just being a scholar or a simple airmchair one. 

There's the needed theory and the more needed practice.
We are part of the whole magic world. 


Even the best scholars I know who also are practitioners can't assure results in magic.
I knew fantastic cookers who did even a bread very wrong, like mine! And be sure they are people I fully respect.
This is why as anything in life, nobody can assure results in magic!
It's impossible!
We deal with our own aspects plus all the others people events.

Citing Aleister Crowley "Every man and every woman is a star".
We are around a very small star, our Sun. 
Think we have billions plus billions of stars and galaxies just in the visible area. Each one is so diferent going to the most absurd level of our humble idea about the Universe.
Think the energy the people far away, around the giant stars may have!

Just think on this: we are part of a small solar system, in the remote border of this Galaxy.
Now think there are places in the Universe where the lowest energy they know is what we see as being the most sublime Love.
For sure there are placer even darker than here, but let that out as the most evil idea is far away from that.

Action is a power to increase, develop, to make.

Work to do!
Act using all your learnings each day to make it better.
Act to study and discover new horizons!
Act to be free and someday, you really become a true Star in this universe!




Now let's comment some aspects of the number 10.

As a kind of primary master number, the 10 means an entire cycle happening at once.
We have the power of the number 1 for "to do".
The number 10 is the big action, the enterprise level of events at any area.

To make it simple, a cooker with the number 1 will learn to do good food, even will have a restaurant. But a cooker with the number 10, will create a food company, or became a master chief even with a network of good restaurants.
A musician with a number 1, will learn to play well and be a good musician. The number 10 will become a great maestro or make new music style.

For sure there many other ways the combination of different numbers in the personal numerology will also result in big works. This is just one.


When the number 10 happens, it brings more power to drastic changes, big inventions, large steps ahead at any area.


This will be a year for big events, big works happenings. For good or bad.

And big works won't be invisible.
We'll see big companies growing due good products the same way we'll see other big companies going into big disasters. Both sides of the same energy.

The ones with big tasks todo will face a lot of such events. Not all good, not all bad and many in the middle area.


A negative aspect of the number 10 in a personal numerology is this can even lead lack of scruples. Which means that some will use this energy to achieve great results regardless of who they are going to harm and how they did it.


In a global scale, the same negative aspect will be working at some big shit happening. 

But again, none of this will be invisible. Big names will be exposed due the good or bad acts.


The Spiral of Evolution

The ideas of the numbers 1 and 10 are related with life cycles too.
There are many cycles in life. The wheel of the year, the seasons, the personal life, our planet moving around the Sun, etc.

The idea of doing something must be with the intent of complete the task.
And doing a task is a minor cycle as part of others major cycles. 

If you go to the school, each year is a cycle while the complete degree is a major cycle.
If you have bad results at the final exams each year, you may repeat all that again until you are able to level up to the next level until you finish the course.

For sure there are many types of cycles, some last seven years, others like the numerology is just 10 years, others are the centuries, etc.
The most visible is the annual cycle of life.


Another interesting example, is the seven years cycle of life:

People at the ages:
  • 0-7 are babies. 
  • 8-14 are children. 
  • 15-21 are teenagers. 
  • 22-28 become adults. 
  • 29-35 are mature. 
  • Then the cycle start again but in my point of view with a difference. The cycle start at children level: So at 36-42 they become children again and want explore everything as new. 
  • 43-49 they become again teenagers. Just remember the famous 40's crisis. Due the same reason, is very common to many women at this phase to be very closer to thir daughters about men, sharing clothes and even disputing atention from guys. 
  • 50-56 a new adult time when people create and are very productive. 
  • 57-63 the second mature phase. 

Here things change again, and the new cycle start at teenager's time!
  • So 64-70 is common at some places such people just wanting to be very social. Parties and all that stuff. 
  • 71-77 to become adult again.
And so on.
For sure, the previous idea add life experience at each level. And as noted, at each new level, that start one point following the sequence until at final, the only repeating is the mature level.


Do the work or you will have it again!

Not all people pay atention why some events in their lives appears to repeat.
A simple example is someone who jump from one love relationship to another and have the same kind of relation as before. Such people didn't learned and still keep after the same type of people.

When you complete a cycle, if you have not changed nor leraned, this means you will be at same level as before.



With no evolution, after some time events will just repeat, again and again.


But when people learn, grown, change their lives for better, they will level up, so after a time, when the cycle reach the same point they will be in an above level, and this makes the cycle become a evolutive spiral moving upwards.

Note, you still will be near the same places, but looking from a higher point of view. This is learning and developing conscioussness.



The previous two examples makes better to understand about the importante of doing and being responsible for your own acts.


Note: some people may fall in life. What they choose to do will lead for a decreasing spiral. This is not related to life concerns, but with the prsonal learnings and choices in life. Such ones at end of each cycle will fall more and more. Usually they are the ones who seek the evil in life and work only for destruction. I won't discuss such ones more.



New cycle, work to level up!

So the most important energy for a new cycle is to make, moving up!
So a number 1 year presents lots of opportunities do changes, start new activities, complete at once the previous and move forward.

This means power to strong transformations at all areas, personal, science, politics, economic, etc.

And due the power of the number 10 this add the idea on the upward spiral cited above.
The ones who level up, will have a wide vision, from a higher point of view. This is why many will comment this is a year for more spiritual awareness and development.

But remember I cited before about mixing of practices.
So at the same time many people will work more and better for spiritual development, at the same time, some will be mixing practices and instead of real growing, they will creating more confusion and the results won't be as the expected.

The more important is to know your own resources and develop yourself to make better decisions and act with a clear view about your life and the others.

Actions in this number 10 will be many times very strong.
So we can expect drastic events resulting from people and even governs works.

As we had many global changes in 2008, be sure many will be happening, but this will be different.

Many changes will happens like at once, but if you remember the cycles, and observe the previous events, you will find many of them was presenting to happens while others will be like decisions done under pressure.
The number 1 is not a "think so much" number. Is an "action" number. This is why many acts will appears to be choosen in an instant. And many will be so.
This is a reason for the importante of some spiritual development and to the people in the higher levels to pay more atention to others.
In no ways this means normal people may become a monk, each people have a personal path. Just will be very good for both sides pay atention to others.

With a bit of care, we'll see many progress, but at the same time, lower levels may be so closer due blind fast acts.

So is better to remember about the spiral of evolution and work the best at your own area to improve what you do, developing counsciousness and increasing life quality.

Use the energy and Go!

The Peace Prayer of St. Francis - Oração de São Francisco

Arte: Dirceu Francisco Villa Verde Filho



The Peace Prayer of St. Francis
Oração de São Francisco de Assis
20/09/2016


A Powerfull Prayer For Personal Life and Even Companies



Sometimes I comment about St. Francis.

I see him as a great Shaman.
More than learning to talk with plants and animals, he was a master of the Elementals of Nature.

He became my St. patron when I received from His hands the initiation over the four elements in the 90s.

One night I was awakened to go to the meditation room and there was all that spirits and he was the one who presented Himself to guide the ceremony.
He was not a beggar as churches present. He was very rich guy and able to deal with all the nature powers.


Just remember, before choose the simple life, like the Gautama Buddha, St. Francis came from one of the most rich family of town and had all pleasures in life before. I say, all the pleasures. And he was a warrior for sometime too, fights in battles, fun, sex, all that. He had everything before find he already had all the needed. 


I was already deep on meditation and shamanic practices.

So all previous workings joined and I learned to work with the Peace Prayer.


In practice, this prayer is very recent and was just inspired on His work. 




 
Some Uses To This Prayer:

I found it to be used as a kind of personal Alchemy practice

A simple idea for Alchemy is to change your dark aspects into gold. The spiritual gold. Or just what is bad into something better.

My first suggestion is to study each phrase, and observe how it is related to the many life's areas. 
It's not to repeat it. I strongly suggest you get all the meanings each verse has. 


You can use it daily, or even as a mantra to change your mood and opens up to the nature powers around you. 

This will change your point of view about what's happening in your life and to understand better other's points of view. And you will learn to feed from the Nature.


How to use it:

The best is to be alone, but if not possible, keep quiet as possible.
But do the prayer using your voice.
Forgot thelepaty. You must use your voice at any prayer as possible.  (or learn to shout in your mind).
Even if you are in public, even so you can use a clear as possible low voice.

This is something a lot of people and magicians didn't get: spirits (angels, demons, saints, etc) does not divine what's inside your head. Yes, forgot any dreams experiences you had. Here you is the one putting energy onto your intent. So, use your voice, even at low volume.

The best way for any prayer is when you do it with a sound. No scandals need for sure. Even if you have to talk with a low voice do it.




Working for a more formal ritual:

As any other spirit, bring a candle and talk with your voice "I"m offering this to St. Francis".
Put a cup of clean water aside.
You can use standard size to seven days size candles with the cup of water aside.
Then do your prayer. Repeat it three to seven times as you feel.
As I told, this is like a personal Alchemy, so I wish maybe you get a different mood just while you are reciting the prayer. As most works, this is natural, so let's it happens and enjoy that time.
Prayer is a communion time, so have your time.
With time, such practices become a time to be silent. This is just meditation. Let it happens!
Then follow to your daily activities.

After a time, at minimum one day, put the water in a nature place, better if is like a grass of wood area on need of water. Just feed the nature! St. Francis feeded the nature ones, remember this, so your ritual must help that ones too.


Doing offerings:

You can do offering to St Francis too. But never before a asking except the cup of water you give and return to nature after.

Your need must be on His area of work, to improve life, feed the needed, change dark into light.


A good offering to St. Francis in my oppinon is always give a sincere thanks and doing hidden charity!
When you feel you got your life changed the way you needed, no matter the results size (as this always have a teaching), you can do a offering to His work in this way:

Fist be sure He is not the one to receive it. He need nothing. St. Francis works to the humble ones and the nature. He work to others. So your offering is to the ones He cares. 
Do an anonymous offering to the humble ones or the nature ones.
Do it as you can, and be sure nobody know you is the one behind that. Charity always must be done in an anonymous way. 


There's two main ways for that. To do by yourself or pay for what you are unable to do. 
I don't know how to sew, so I buy ready clothes. And as I'm getting older, plus all I don't know how to do, some works I'm really unable to do, so I pay someone to do it. Then I choose people and pay well as this ones deserves and feels happy as they got a job. 
Remember, some people, even skilled and humble, maybe under difficult times. So please, do the right thing. As an example, (sorry, I don't like to cite, but may work here), someone asked a shameless cheap value for a work I was sure to cost three times more. So by myself I paid three times more and refused the original price. One of many. 


Please read this: to all people and anyone at magic/spiritual areas: Spiritual results it's not what you get. It's HOW you get it. The spiritual area is never, but never for opportunists!

Stick this: To be respecfull wil the spirits and the same way to get respect from them is a main aspcect to get.

 
To people at leadership at companies, this is something that will even save your business. Valuate who work for you!
At any of such events, that have to be like a sincere thanks. 

If you want to know about offerings, learn to valuate what you receive and how people and spirits work. 

This is the idea, Uhm? 


So for some offerings for St. Francis.:

First, working: have real care of your garden, help to cleanup you local park, a riverside, make your place a better and nice place to anyone live. 

Second, pay for what you can't do. Some people can't do the work due a lot of reasons. So they use their money, and this means they had serious effort to gain that money. 
Starting with very simple examples, like make water supply with bows to street dogs, help feed poor families, water the nature plants at a public garden or even do a needed cleanup at such places, help someone who deserve to pay the college, give some wheel chairs (and be sure nobody know who are you), etc. 
Just make nature and other's lifes beautifull without expecting a return! 

This is why for companies, public works when they promote it, really add nothing at the spirutual levels, as that is just self-promotiong while their owner's life keep bad. 
Charity always have to be in anonymous way. Dot.  
The moment you promote such acts, even with photos of your "charity", that became the opposite. For sure, not Karma, just you are showing to be an opportunist.



For Personal Work:

The prayer is good to have strength in difficult times.To get inspiration about how to use your current resources to improve your situation.For family harmony.To have more clarity about your own life and to understand yourself more. For support and spiritual strengthening in cases of illness.To improve your mood.For cases of anxiety.


For Personal Work in The Nature: 

Use the prayer to get in touch with the forces of nature and become more aware of the beauties of life.


For protection at nature. Please, do not try to hug bears! LOL...

Well, I had a strong spiritual spiritual experience in the mountains with a Puma so closer of my head to feed from me. But that was an only one in life experience. Do not try this! Such events happens was a fantastic spiritual gift.



As you recite the prayer to prepare and while you are into it, this is ideal for those who love nature and practice outdoor activities, such as trails in the woods (trekking), mountaineering, climbing, canoeing, exploration of natural areas, caves, etc.  

This prayer will attract into you the Nature Powers. Be sure. 
Regardless of your faith, this prayer works to change your soul and become like an invitation for the spirits and forces of nature to present themselves in all their wonders. 
For sure I can't garantee you will see fairies, but with time, you will be in the mood. I'm glad for
dragonflies, butterflies and birds coming so closer.And some wonderfull events even at shining mountains.

For photographers who want to learn how to capture an instant of time. That is, to learn to perceive life in all its aspects and get the beauty on it. This means, to be able to get the beauty in life. For any artistic activity that deals with life. Painting, sculpture, music, dance, etc.

Note for Dark artists and some famous photopgraphers of the sadness: In my point of view, you are not colleting life, you after after the dark, sad aspects. You do money with sickness. That is not life. This prayer is one of the many ways to change what you do and get Light the day you wish to change. Won't say names as they don't deserve it. 


For the Work in Companies - Business:


The prayer is also for all who are in a position of command and leadership. Owners, directors, managers, etc. This will harmonize your relationship with people and especially
the environment as you work on it. You will even become a better boss as you bring light into yourself. With constant repetition, this will strengthen your spirit. 

Forget about to suggest this to someone at your business! 
This prayer is ideal to be recited alone, before going to business meetings. And if you drink 3 cups of clean water together, this also add the aspects of the water elements, about intuition and Light needed to improve meetings and get the needed insights and better results. 

I already cited somewhere about the changes at business meeting just by drinking 3 cups of water before a business meeting.  Don't be worried about need to piss. Everyone know the good part of a business meeting need only 15 minutes.

For employees it helps to have a better understanding of their role, to have better relationships with colleagues, and to neutralize negative perception in difficult environments. 

ATTENTION FOR COMPANIES: This is not like that methods some companies use an pay someone to talk what you want. I'm not here to talk what you want! This practice have to be totally voluntary, it can never be imposed by the company. That is, do it for yourself and only in positive cases, it can happen that someone became curious to know more, so in this case only you can comment that you are using this prayer (or a spiritual practice). But no miracles! OK? 
This is teaching through examples. Be yourself the good example and over time, the very good energies of nature will work.



For Magicians, Sorcerers, Witches and Shamans Work

St. Francis as a Shaman, became one of that spirits with a powerfull Egregora to work with. 
Forget the church aspects about the poor. 
Call Him and you will find a lot more. 
The nature and people have needs. To be poor is not the same as having nothing, BUT that means to live with what one have.

St Francis works great ast the previous examples, but He is also a great source to learning, guidance and help when you have to deal to get Harmony and Healing in the previous cited areas. 

Is very interesting the way he will work to bring such results too. 
So you can evoke Him for help in the needed areas. Not like St. Expedite, but for human evolution as main aspect.




Some information found at internet: 


The Origin of the Peace Prayer of St. Francis from: The Origin of the Peace Prayer of St. Francis by Dr. Christian Renoux, Associate Professor of the University of Orleans, France.


Original Text of the Peace Prayer of St. Francis: (French)

    Seigneur, faites de moi un instrument de votre paix.
    Là où il y a de la haine, que je mette l'amour.
    Là où il y a l'offense, que je mette le pardon.
    Là où il y a la discorde, que je mette l'union.
    Là où il y a l'erreur, que je mette la vérité.
    Là où il y a le doute, que je mette la foi.
    Là où il y a le désespoir, que je mette l'espérance.
    Là où il y a les ténèbres, que je mette votre lumière.
    Là où il y a la tristesse, que je mette la joie.
    Ô Maître, que je ne cherche pas tant à être consolé qu'à consoler, à être compris qu'à comprendre, à être aimé qu'à aimer, car c'est en donnant qu'on reçoit, c'est en s'oubliant qu'on trouve, c'est en pardonnant qu'on est pardonné, c'est en mourant qu'on ressuscite à l'éternelle vie.

    Source: La Clochette, n° 12, déc. 1912, p. 285.
 



The popular English version: 

Lord, make me an instrument of thy peace.
Where there is hatred, let me sow love;
Where there is injury, pardon;
Where there is doubt, faith;
Where there is despair, hope;
Where there is darkness, light;
Where there is sadness, joy.

O Divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek
To be consoled as to console,
To be understood as to understand,
To be loved as to love;
For it is in giving that we receive;
It is in pardoning that we are pardoned;
It is in dying to self that we are born to eternal life.





And this "Oratio Sancti Francisci" from: www.preces-latinae.org


Latin: 

Domine, fac me servum pacis tuae,
ubi odium, amorem seram;
ubi iniuria, veniam;
ubi dubium, fidem;
ubi desperatio, spem;
ubi caligo, lucem;
ubi tristitia, laetitiam.
O Domine coelestis, concede mihi ut ne tam petam
consolari quam consolare,
intellegi quam intelligere,
amari quam amare.
Nam in dando recipimus,
in ignoscendo ignoscimur,
et in moriendo ad vitam aeternam nascimur. Amen.





Peace Prayer of St. Francis
Art by feral-canary - USA


Portuguese version:


In portuguese it's named as "Oração de São Francisco de Assis".

Senhor, fazei-me instrumento de vossa paz.
Onde houver ódio, que eu leve o amor;
Onde houver ofensa, que eu leve o perdão;
Onde houver discórdia, que eu leve a união;
Onde houver dúvida, que eu leve a fé;
Onde houver erro, que eu leve a verdade;
Onde houver desespero, que eu leve a esperança;
Onde houver tristeza, que eu leve a alegria;
Onde houver trevas, que eu leve a luz.

Ó Mestre, Fazei que eu procure mais
Consolar, que ser consolado;
compreender, que ser compreendido;
amar, que ser amado.
Pois é dando que se recebe,
é perdoando que se é perdoado,
e é morrendo que se vive para a vida eterna.

Memory versus Learning





Memory versus Learning


From times to times I meet someone who is very proud to know by head a lot of information.

But how much this is usefull?

This is an article where I do a mix about corporate software development and the occult study areas as I have told for some years, I found my work to be a whole at all.

Ok. If your company dislike because I love to walk at mountains and nature places there's no problem. People have personal lives. And my work as any other professional worker is what I do for life and to help companies growing.But personal interests are not of your business most of times and we observed any skilled talents in the market have other areas of interest to add to their experience and skills.

So we have a lot of information we receive in life, plus all training and experiences. This is what make us reach levels of expertize and being able to solve our work needs.

So there are many levels. Some will do only the basic, others will be able to work alone, others will be able to create and to do. Some others will lead and teach others. And few will reach the "wisdom level".  Each company need all of them.


I fully agree with this quote cited as being from Einstein:
Never memorize something that you can look up.- Albert Einstein"
Here is the comment about at the site Brightdrops:
"This is more true today than it was back in Einstein’s time, because the Internet means you can look just about anything up. That frees the mind from having to memorize useless facts and figures and explore deeper thoughts that require creativity and imagination, two things that Einstein prized above all else. It’s true that even some of the most successful business people followed this strategy. Henry Ford was once questioned about how smart he was and retorted that he could get the answer to any question with just the push of a button, so why did he have to know it?"

My comments:

For sure at school and university and some level exams you need to know for each area, a lot of information. 
And for times ahead, for example, if you chose an area like Medicine. A doctor must know a lot of principles related to so many areas and be able to identify the most symptoms as fast as possible.

One way to do it is often review your study and reread even old books. Our memory is a machine and need be oiled, Ok? So is very good to add new material, but also give a look even at some very basic materials. And as a book lover, I had many old books I reread sometimes.

Uhm, well, that is what we expect from most doctors and the really good ones can do it. 
But not all times. The purpose is to understand the information you get and develop your own expertise.

With time you have to be able to know how to use it. Keep what is important, have the main principles and understand what is needed to develop it.

Even the character Dr. House from the TV series who was really brilliant needed to search for information. 

My "uncle" Mr Spock was so brilliant but many times had researched for information too. Star Trek fans will remember he was too often at the computer researching, but other times at his personal place meditating and working on yourself.



Ok. There are the information needed and at what is needed to know about to deal with it. 


To me, the important is not how much information you can keep at mind ready to call it at once.

The important is if you is able to use it. To know how to use it!

Even some occult orders appears to pay atention to how much information you can have at mind.
What?
Uhm, Ok, for sure the good ones have people skilled to just talk with someone and to be able to see who is who.


But what the difference this have to any professional area?

To me, none.
For companies, a leveled professional must talk with someone skilled for just few minutes for a match. No stupid basic school test as some still does. Most of times that is rude.

Sorry friends at any of such groups as I've been able to talk with any people at any of my work areas in respectful ways at all levels.

What some are looking for? 

I'm sad to comment, I had talked with so many people who work in a way to make sure their companies will broke soon.  They do not look for a wide scene.

Ok, about to know. A simple example: you may know how to do a very nice better barbecue? Great!!! Please, invite me, I'm a very bad at cuisine!

Anyways, I still know the theory about how to make the fire and the meat, but most of you just are better at the cuisine. LOL...


Yes!!! Just because I like a barbecue this in no ways means I have to be so good doing it!

Barbecue done in a typical south Brasil way."Churrasco".

Information is only data. Useless without the expertize for practice. 
A scholar is someone who love research. A scientist, some skilled software developers, a medicine doctor and many others.

And many scholars don't know all that information by head!
Get this? If you visit a scholar at work most for sure you will see a lot of books for reference opened around. Just for curiosity, now I have nine books plus printings and notes around me I'm using this week. Plus usually a dozen tabs opened at the internet browser for references I'm looking for. They will be back to the stand but next day I get more up the tables.
A reason we love libraries!


So well, why I became a writer?

For sure not because I know everything by head!

I use to say I become a writer because I don't like to remember too much things, no matter the expertise I may develop on it. 

And why? Just because I know where I can find the information I need.

I may write about computer development work, a fantastic fiction tale or something about the occult or my experiences on human development. 

What I really need is to know what to do. Dot.

Despite some capability to write since early age, my first formal article came to public only in 1986.

It was a ten pages article for for a local Computerworld journal (The DataNews Journal), about advanced software development of online systems (CICS/VS) for IBM mainframes. A high level technology and was ten pages at first. Wow! Guess how I felt! And the publisher did a lot on the Ads... LOL... 

But how I started that about writing? 
Just doing what I do almost all days since I remember. I always used to read a lot and was saving information and taking notes about my study. 
How many people goes to the bathroom with a 300 pages computer manual or an occult book? I was one since the 70s.  
And there was a lot of big books to study. Not only one, but usually a dozen each with 300-400 pages to read just for one area. And the need for practices few have did. 
Any  coincidence with occult area? Just to cite as you become better at some area, this will help to the others areas too. Need discipline and practice.

Computers to me always was related with the occult. And no mysticims about.  Just is something you need to go deep and try a lot, have errors and learn from that.


Both areas goes deep into realms with a wide knowledge to explore. 
And you can use your imagination to develop a personal method to work.


 
For sure I have a lot of processed information in my brain, but I have no memory about working only by head in life, but always working with all much I was using at time plus the need for references. 

And may be you do not know, astronauts who went to the moon had manuals to use all the time. They was real heros!
I remember to see photos of the Nasa people, all the team, doing trainings seated at the floor, not nice rooms, they was on extreme pressure and have to get the information as soon as possible, and put it in practice.
Just to remember, most of photos you will find about that missions had most seniors professionals, working hard, not only fashion teens as we see at many company profiles.

Learning about the jungle is very related with many practical aspects of business. Are you able to continue despite the worst troubles?


So I found at some time, I had so many information collected to become an article and started to publish. This is how it started. Collecting notes. And I never stopped.


The result from that article was interesting. I received a lot of letters from all major companies in my country while my boss (who had a copy of the journal in his desk) tryed to ignore it because he knew my salary was not so good... (LOL...) and used to recognized me after being called due costumers... I was a big reference in the market that time....  
Funny but true. 

Ok, I was not after his aproval. The first is my own. And a hundreds of good ones had returned too.  


This have happened to my softtware professional area and at the occult areas.

Remember, I use to say I see my work very related to all these areas. Human kind evolution and computers.
Sometime we will have a development level very advanced. Many are just Sci-fi for now. 


I'm not against yours approval of this or that.

A main point if you have a work you know to be true and work for it. 

Not all people will agree with you. 
And many will question what you are doing in all possible ways. 


And the first way I point all times is: I'm not a scholar! I'm a practictioner! 


What your company pay atention for? To know or just only know the current fashion tool? 
To just obbey orders or have oppinions to create and make your company grown?

There's not much difference using tools from centuries or the internet fashion tools. 


You must to know what to look for!

Juan Manuel Fangio
A guy who really knew how to do it.



Sorry people, I won't appears in a chat and be ready to talk by mind an entire text from an old grimoire or whatever on technology. 
Nor I will be able many times to present by head a work about a computer software among dozens I've worked. But I can talk by myself at any time and if I have few hours to get into something new or not it may surprise you.

I work to learn and develop about how to do it at my areas!

I love Juan Manuel Fangio as a big example. 
This guy had not automatic machines. He driven F1 cars in brute. No computers. No fantastic machines. Just a man and the tool he chose.

This guy for life, until dead, received each week visitors, the best pilots of the world, and guess for what? Just because he was knew as being a Master in his work. The most famous pilots came into him to learn and give respect. In practice, he worked his entire life. 

I will repeat this to so company leaders: Juan Manuel Fangio was visited until his dead by people who came to learn with him how to drive. They never was against the tools. 

If you pay atention for the tools only, you are ready to become a looser

Like a company where they only goes after costs. They will broke soon for sure. 

Creativity, being produtive is the first. 
Never, but never about having some information by head. 

You must to know how to use it.. 



Any good pilot will be ready to learn and drive a machine. Get this company managers? A decent professional must know what to do. The tool is only the way we may use.

So I will be able to comment at instant about how things work. 
If I need a phormula, I know where to get it. 
At internet times we have lots of sources. One must be able to filter all bulshit, find the best forums, and for sure, look for the best authors and books. 

When it is some tool I have not worked, I will be ready to recognize what I need to follow on that. 

This is Learning. 

I don't pay a f*ck if someone only know the current computer software tool. This is not so different from dozens I had used in deep for years. 

Remember when Nokia had to admit they lose their creativity near to broke? Hummm?? I had an article in 2009 about intrusions on people life many years before that is a critical reason to loose profesionals. A senior manager commented in public article to prefer hiring a criminal instead a smoker so I had to comment about some human and company aspects. Real talents have a real life. But if your company chose a raper, a murder or any other criminal because dislike someone personal interest, well, pay the price and I really wish that won't affect your family. Or better, remember you have a family. 

And going into the occult, want to learn another Grimoire area? What you need to follow? The Great Art is also named The work of God. This means standarts to follow, discipline, brain work, not became a saint, Ok? 


Why real good creative people does not want to work at your company? 

I suggest you to read this fantastic Aaron Shapiro's article, and it is very up to date to any area where talent is needed: Why Digital Talent Doesn’t Want To Work At Your Company.



And if this is about occult, there are a lot to do, and I will follow that for the needed time.


Memory is good to immediate needs, like the ceremonial rituals you are working for many time. 

But just to know phrases by head never, but never is the same as to know how to deal with that. 

I'm always far aways from the ultimate goal,

But I'm always sure about what I want to do and with some decent idea about how it can be done and most of all, be ready to discover a new way for that!


Want to grow your business? Grow your mind!
