Cardinal-We’re Officially In a Wormhole Now

In the Roman Catholic Church there’s a hierarchy, and the most senior members of the clergy are the Cardinals-second only to the Pope himself. It is the responsibility of the Cardinals to elect a new Pope when the Holy See is vacant-be it by death or resignation of the Pope.

Here we are, once again analyzing the meaning of the Cardinal in a different context. And as you can see, the word stays true to its Latin root-something of importance. In the world of the Catholic Church, I’d say the Cardinal is a pretty important figure. Like the bird, they also wear the colors red and black.

Four days ago we slid into this wormhole, but I didn’t anticipate a wormhole then. There’s a window behind my toilet, and I got out of bed Monday morning to use the bathroom. That’s when I was looking out of the window and saw the bird. I thought it would be a good idea to write about the bird, and all of a sudden this topic shot out in a hundred directions, and took on a life of its own. It’s now four days later, and I’m still writing about Cardinals.

If you read my post “Cardinal Quality,” you probably noticed the image of the cross. When I added that picture to the article, I knew the image obviously carried religious significance, but I was really posting it because the cardinal directions. If you look at a map or a compass, there’s usually a cross in the center of north, south, east, and west to assist in the locations of such directions. Isn’t funny though how that image of the cross would fit well in this post as well?

I also said, “This is all high level thinking,” and what I was referring to was someone had to take the time and apply “Cardinal” in all these different yet similar uses. There is a common thread here. It obviously started with the bird, but what made someone use the term cardinal as a quality for astrological signs representing the solstices and the equinoxes?

Personally speaking, February has been an important month for me. My birthday just passed, and a day later, the book I wrote became available for purchase. From a spiritually symbolic standpoint, the bird showed up at an important time so I buy into the meaning behind its symbolism.

But…

Where are we going with all this? Is there a way out of this wormhole? Can we come up with a conclusion from making these connections?

🤣I don’t know where we’re going because like I said, I didn’t anticipate a wormhole. I wanted to just write about the bird I saw. I think there’s a way out of this wormhole, but shits about to get real wormy. I think the way out is going in the opposite direction-lets think about what “cardinal” is not. Cardinal is not ordinal. In math, cardinal numbers are natural. 1, 2, 3, etc. (Natural also meaning from nature/god)

SET is the Egyptian God of Chaos, but don’t worry. There won’t be any chaos because in SET theory, we have order-as in ordinal numbers. Ordinal numbers, unlike cardinal number, are not natural. They are used to describe a way to arrange objects or describe place. For example, first or 1st, second or 2nd, third or 3rd etc. As the saying goes without order there’s chaos. (God will get angry if we’re not in order?)🤪 There’s a conflict here-I just noticed (and this is why I didn’t want to go here)

Okay, so if ordinal numbers are not cardinal then there also not natural. God might get upset if we’re not being good or “in order,” but it’s human nature to do what comes natural and being ordinal isn’t natural. Are we being controlled with the threat of God?

So, our way out of this wormhole is to revert back to religion and put everything in Gods hands.

You’re first, I’m second, and she’s third. SETS happy, there’s no chaos, and we live on.

Have a wonderful night! 🤣🤣

Cardinal comes from the Latin Cardinalis-pertaining to a hinge; applied to that on which something turns or depends.

The number 12 is related to the cardinal as there are 12 eggs in a cardinals nest.

It symbolizes passionate romance and fierce leadership.

A cardinal rule is one of great importance; crucial and pivotal.

A cardinal number is a natural number as in zero, one, two, or three, etc.

Ina nautical sense, there are 4 cardinal directions, north, south, east, and west.

The cardinal does not migrate in the winter, it stands its ground.

Birds are free creatures. They’re messengers from heaven. If a cardinal appears to you and wakes you up out of your slumber it could be a message; a symbol. You’re at a crucial point in your life. Stand tall and weather the storm. Be on the lookout for passion and romance. Be natural and act with precision. Be a leader. I am free; free to choose, free to live, and free to be.

Awakening, Letting Go, and Finding Purpose

By

Francis Joseph LaManna

Sometimes things happen during our lives and a light switch gets flipped.  The deeper and more focused you are, the greater the event.  When the new millennium began in 2000 and 2001, I was head down and shoulder pads deep in football.  It was my third year at William Paterson University in Wayne, New Jersey, and we were preparing for our third game when 911 brought the country to a screeching halt. 

Football was my life, I loved it, but a new reality was on the horizon.  Of course, I was upset.  My sacred space had been infiltrated, and I was forced to look up and around at the new world before me.  Never, in all my years of playing had a football game been cancelled.  It took some time, but eventually I accepted the facts.  Football was just a game, and all games end, but with every ending, there’s a bright new beginning. 

We are living through amazing times, we truly are.  If part of our mission here is to wake up, you couldn’t ask for anything more.  In March of this year the school district I was teaching in was shutdown immediately on the 12th because of COVID-19.  Soon after, the entire country was shut down.  In April, we saw Americans out protesting the “stay-at-home-order.”  Citizens all over the country were occupying their state capitals and local town centers. 

In May, first amendment supporters were pushed aside as peaceful protests and public assemblies gave way to violence and looting as we experienced the backlash of the George Floyd murder.  Here we are now; November is right around the corner and as a country, we’re still dealing with the COVID crisis.  I know there are people all over the world who are upset, and I know there are a lot of young men and women who feel like their private sanctuaries have been infiltrated-just like I did, and that’s a good thing.  If you’re upset and frustrated it means you’re being woken up for a higher calling.  Consciousness is kicking the door in, and it’s screaming.  It’s telling you that you have a real purpose.  You might be young, and your generation may not be running the word at the moment, but you need to embrace the change.

As we look around at the new world before us, we can see the turmoil in political, religious, educational, economic, and ecological systems, but remember, there’s a bright new beginning after every ending.  The energies are powerful, and something special is going to come out of all this, but in the meantime, we must figure out a way to navigate through this new and changing reality.  Go with the flow. 

I always wanted to be a writer.  I was a communication major in college with concentration studies in journalism, but after graduating, I pursued teaching.  I pursued teaching in New Jersey, and again in Pennsylvania.  When 2020 began, I was enrolled in a teacher certification program at a local college and I was substitute teaching.  For me, COVID-19 was the new 911.  The country came to a screeching halt, I couldn’t teach, and I couldn’t go to school.  I was upset and frustrated, and once again, my sacred space had been infiltrated, but I learned.  I didn’t spend time dwelling on what was.  Events beyond my control were pushing me in a direction.  When I stopped resisting, I realized the position was one I always wanted to be in. 

When the economy shut down, and I was at home, I didn’t complain about being out of work; I didn’t complain about school closing.  I wrote a book, and I sent the manuscript to several publishers.  A month later, I received a call from Fulton Books in Meadville Pennsylvania, who eventually would become the publisher.  The book is titled, Smorgasbord A Collection of Thoughts, Experiences, and Stories, and it should be available for purchase before the end of this year. 

Consciousness is something within all of us, but it’s something that must be activated.  It must be sparked or lit.  It must be stoked.  The switch must be flipped, and it’s not the good things you enjoy doing that’s going to do it for you.  It’s the turmoil.  All the things we’re experiencing right now in 2020 that’s disrupting our way of life will.  The roadblocks, the setbacks, and all the things beyond your control that frustrates and angers you will.  Yes, we’re living through amazing times so don’t spend too much time dwelling on what was.  You’re being pushed towards something greater.  Go with the flow.  

I’m Shocked

You know, every once in a while you come across someone who’s behavior just shocks you. I’m not going to mention this scumbags full name or the online publication he claims to be the publisher of because he’s not worth the publicity or the free advertising.

What’s my problem with this guy? I’ve officially been in the “spiritual” field for the last thirteen years, and when I say the spiritual field, I mean New Age Practices, Metaphysical, and Holistic Living.

The other night I was on the computer trying to find magazines, both hard copy and online publications that I could freelance or submit articles for, and I came across a good list of about 20 sources.

To make a long story short, I’ve never, in thirteen years in this field of peace, beauty, and spiritual living ever met a mean or nasty person. The people who are in this field are usually very sincere, patient and looking for help- but this guy…

You were nasty and rude to me.

This scumbag claims his online magazine is serving the health and wellness of his local community, and his magazine is Midwest’s foremost metaphysical and holistic magazine. This piece of trash claims his magazine focuses on medicine, fitness, spiritual and personal growth.

Well, I don’t know how any of those claims could be true of anything you’re the publisher of.

All I wanted to do was tell you that I liked your magazine, and I wanted to ask you if I could submit an article, but forget it.

You’re rag mag ain’t worth wiping my ass with.

Have a good day everyone.

Free Writing

Good Evening.

I hope everyone is having a spirited and fun-filled Halloween. I heard or read the other day (I don’t remember) the property where the Vatican is was a 2nd century cemetery housing all the men and women who died in the name of faith. Saint Peter’s Basilica was built to honor them.

I wanted to mention something that has absolutely nothing to do with Halloween, the Vatican, or people dying for faith. Last summer I bought a bathing suit. It was turquoise-solid turquoise. I wore it several times during the summer, and it always looked turquoise. Just plain old solid turquoise. Two weeks ago I wore it to the gym; don’t ask. Anyway, while I was working out I looked down at my bathing suit, and I noticed clear as day, a hula girl print on them. I couldn’t believe it. It felt like I had a different pair of shorts on, and when I got back home I took another look at the shorts, but the print disappeared. Now it looks like a turquoise bathing suit again. Just plain turquoise. I guess it must’ve been the lighting, but I’m wondering, would I have bought that bathing if the hula girl print was visible when I picked them off the rack. Maybe.

Listen to this. I just looked at the bathing suit to see if I could see the hula girls under the light in my bedroom, and I couldn’t, but I looked inside at the tag and it said Magic Print Bathing Suit. There you go. It’s magic. It’s interesting how this bathing suit story just came to me. I’m sitting here trying to figure out why I decided to write about the bathing suit, and I’m just now realizing-the answer is subconscious guidance. Yes, two paragraphs, which on the surface present two different topics, but when you dig..

I swear I did not plan this.

The Holy See! The Holy See is also called the See of Rome, and it’s the jurisdiction of the Bishop of Rome, which includes Vatican City! I can’t believe it. I now believe the purchase of that bathing suit was divinely inspired.

Is there a connection between turquoise, hula girls, and the Vatican? I’ll let you know when I return from the rabbit hole.

You know, with all the hoopla surrounding mischief night and Halloween, we forget about 11.1. Let me just tell you that 11, 111, and 1111 is very powerful. 1111 is a cosmic gateway, and an entrance leading you to a brand-new start; but November 1st or 11/1 is All Saints Day. It’s a celebration to honor all the saints both known and unknown.

I was just watching the Celestine Prophecy again for the fifth time, and there’s a scene in that movie when they’re talking about the energy we transfer. Some people can see it. Yes, it’s beyond our reality, but there are special people who can see auras and energy fields. In the movie the woman said to her friend; Do you notice the halo of light surrounding the heads of the saints in all the old photos? Do you think the artist just made that up.

Amazing.

Have a wonderful night, and enjoy the rest of your Halloween. Oh yeah, don’t forget to visit our merchandise page. Get yourself a Nooz Buffet t-shirt.

Akashic Records, Atlantean Abilities

It is said that radio and television waves have always existed in the ether. It’s amazing, but man did not create them, he discovered them. Man has found mechanical ways to use television and radio waves for his benefit, but those waves existed for eons.

What does all this mean?

Well, it’s believed that everything in history, and everything that’s happening on earth today is being recorded on an etheric television screen. This is hard to believe, but reputable professionals believe it to be true. Clairvoyant and psychic, Edgar Cayce, says that humans are televised and recorded sound and all-as they’re living unrehearsed in their everyday lives.

This has always been true, and throughout time, these records have been referred to as the “Akashic Records,” “The Book of Life,” and “God’s Book of Remembrance.”

Cayce believes that our mental capacities will develop, reasoning and thinking abilities along with psychic ones. What’s amazing about this is that is what the Atlanteans were capable of doing. We will be highly individual in our use of mental powers. Prophecy, psychic healing, and creative and artistic ability will be commonplace everywhere, and it will be normal.

I’m telling you, I’ve been saying for a long time, we’re living during an amazing time. There’s a lot going on that’s negative and beyond our control, but don’t look it as a bad thing. We’re getting an opportunity to find purpose. There’s nothing more empowering for the individual than finding your reason for living. Go with the flow, don’t fight it. I know, that’s easier said than done, but it’s something we can perfect over time.

Alright everyone, have a great night!

Vision 1

03.24.2020 @ 10:37 pm

I saw a bridge with water.  The view was from the water, like looking across the water, out and up at the bridge like as if I was standing in the water.

According to auntyflo.com a bridge is a spiritual message that it’s time for a person to review their life, and possibly an indication that an obstacle needs to be crossed.

From a personal viewpoint, the description given by auntyflo.com seems to make sense, but I won’t try at this point to find any connections or correlations to specific circumstances in my life.  I’d like to see where it fits in general.

 

Recover Your Sanity; Compromise, Consideration, Respect

Out of all the articles I’ve published on my website over the last two years, I think this is probably the most important.

You don’t know what people are thinking.  You don’t know what people have on their minds, or what kinds of pressures they feel.

Some people do have an inner clock with a sense of urgency.

Just because someone is walking around with a smile on their face that doesn’t mean everything is okay.

The point I’m trying to make is that it’s foolish to make assumptions.

You might be a miserable person who’s looking for a confrontation, and you pick the person with a smile on her/his face, but you have no idea what’s behind that smile.

I was listening to Coast to Coast last night as I usually do, and the host, George Noory was making a point about how edgy society seems.  Generally, people seem upset and miserable.

As funny as it sounds, I think the ‘Celestine Prophecy’ offers a good explanation for why that is.  Society and culture is changing, but because most people are so resistant to change, we’re becoming extreme in our attitudes and beliefs.

🙏How do we get back to middle ground?  Hold your hands apart, palms facing each other, and out in front of you, and let that represent the extremes.  Now, bring them together. 🙏You now have praying hands representing middle ground.

The state of mind of people operating at extremes is war and conflict because they’ve taken an extreme stance concerning personal beliefs and attitude.  You don’t have to go that way, trust me.  If you do, then you’ve lost the middle ground, and middle ground is where you need to be.  The middle ground is everything.  It’s logical reasoning, and the place where you are in control.

In a Country where we are free to do and say almost anything we want, there is no place for extremism. We should not be in a position where we have to take an extreme stance on anything because people are free to do what they want.  Right?

If your personal privacy, space, or rights to think, act, choose, or govern yourself have been violated then you have to take a stance for what’s yours, not for what you want other people to believe or accept.

I’ve been told this so I’m going to share the information with you…the war we are in right now is spiritual in nature, and that’s not a cop out for physical violence, that’s the truth.

Extremist do not understand that when the consciousness of humanity is changing, it’s a spiritual issue.  Physical violence and war doesn’t change consciousness, belief, personal attitude, and faith does.

Jesse Ventura made the comment that war is man at his lowest point.  War and physical violence is the answer when there is nothing left and everything else has failed.

Because it is spiritual, you just have to be active and involved.

Here’s how we get back to middle ground:

The middle ground is contentment.  It’s agreement, and it’s balance.  If you cannot find middle ground within a group, then the group isn’t respecting your needs as an individual.  If they aren’t willing to consider and respect what you want, then that group isn’t for you.  Leave it.

If you cannot reach middle ground with a partner, then that person isn’t considerate/respectful to your needs as an individual within the relationship.  That person isn’t for you.  Leave him/her.

All groups and relationships are made up of individuals.  As individuals we should know what we want and need, and we also must accept that when we join a group or we’re involved in a relationship, we will have to compromise something at some some point.  I like to eat at 5pm, but my partner enjoys eating at 7pm…we agree to eat at 6pm.

Compromise, Consideration, and Respect….for yourself, and for other people.

That’s how we recover our sanity, and get back to middle ground. 

If you aren’t willing to compromise, and have consideration and respect for me, then don’t tell me what to do, and frankly, get the fuck out of my life because you aren’t adding anything positive to it.  You’re a drain.  I’m sorry I exposed you.

As an individual:

  1. If you participate in anything that has rules and structure, the rules have to be followed by everyone.  No exceptions.  If I have to follow rules, and you don’t or refuse to then eventually, one of us will get upset and there will be a problem.
  2. Do not let fear control your life.  If you want to do something, go and do it.  If I want a shirt, but I don’t go to the store to buy it because I’m scared, and then I see my friend wearing the shirt I wanted, I might get upset.  Don’t let fear control your decisions.
  3. Do whatever makes you happy.  Your happiness is everything.  There are times when we must force ourselves to do things we don’t want to do, but after a while, we have to weigh out the cost.  (I work because I need money, but do I really need to make my money this way?)
  4. Take care of your health.  Get out of the fucking house and walk, run, lift weights, play a sport, etc.  We need physical activity.
  5. Love something.
  6. Love somebody.
  7. Tell someone how you feel.
  8. Find a hobby!
  9. Have fun!
  10. Travel!
  11. Stay away from people who aren’t supportive of what you’re doing, or what you’re trying to accomplish.  (Toxic is the word that has been used to describe people of that nature.)  Ignore them.  If one day, they decide to accept you and what you’re trying to do, maybe they’ll come to you and show a little interest.

OMG COMMON SENSE MAN!

If the “state of mind” of people in extreme positions is war, and half the population is extreme right or left, half the population is at its lowest point.  Half the population is militant.  We are deteriorating as a collective and resorting to a path we’ve gone down a million times!

New Path!

I’m not going to tell you what to believe or what to do.  I’ll share what works for me, but ultimately, you’re your own man/woman.  Think for yourself.  Who knows you better than you?

If you don’t like me, stay away from me.  If you want to get to know me, come and talk to me.  You can do pretty much whatever you want so long as you’re not stopping someone else from doing what they want.

Why do you complain about your job?  You read the job description and agreed to the pay, but when you start working you complain.  Why did you take it?

See things for what they are, not what you would like them to be.

 

 

 

 

Making Sense Out Of Being Spiritual

I was raised Roman Catholic, and I don’t go to church that often, (not bragging, or saying anything bad about the church) but if the question concerning religion ever arises, I do identify with being Catholic.

I do say I’m Spiritual also, and there are a lot- a lot of people who identify with being spiritual but not religious.

So, the BIG question comes up.  What does it mean to be Spiritual, and can someone be Spiritual but not religious?


Before I give my new opinion and answer this, I want to hear what all of you have to say.  Please, write in and tell me what you think.

What does it mean to be spiritual, and can a person be spiritual without being religious?

Reincarnation

The basis behind the theory of reincarnation is that your soul lives on.  If your soul lives on, then it has lived before, which takes us into past life regression.

Right now in this life, we live a life we’re actively creating through our experiences and interactions, but this life is only a moment in time for our soul’s journey.  When the body expires in death, the soul will incarnate into another body for the purpose of completing the soul’s mission.

The soul comes into existence with a purpose, and through you, that soul attempts to first find that purpose, and then complete it.   1,000 years ago your soul came into existence and incarnated into the body of a man that became very wealthy.  He was very successful, and money was his answer for everything.

If he needed something, he bought it.  His soul’s mission, however, was to learn the value of love, and so he couldn’t figure out why he was so miserable.  He could have everything he desired, all he had to do was pay, but love was something his money couldn’t buy.  Eventually, he died a rich man never learning his soul’s lesson.

According to the teachings of reincarnation, this soul will reincarnate until the individual holding the soul learns its lesson, which ultimately allows the soul to move on in its journey through time.  The problem or challenge is that we’re born with absolutely no recollection of what happened in our previous lives.

The second problem or challenge is the soul is always presented with opposition.  If the soul’s lesson is to learn how to be an effective leader, it will be in the body of someone who doesn’t mind following because only as a follower will the person wake up to the realization that he/she must someday take the reins and lead.

Over the years, your soul could’ve incarnated many times.  Sometimes people will have deja vu and think they’ve been somewhere before when they know for a fact it’s their first visit to such a place.  Perhaps, they were there in a previous life, and deja vu is just the soul waking up to previous life experiences.

Take some time to contemplate your life.  Do you keep finding yourself in the same situations over and over again?  Pay attention.  There’s probably something the universe is trying to teach you.  You might be a really young man or woman holding an ‘old soul.’
