Happy New Year!
My apologies for not blogging much lately (for those of you who care). I have three more shows with Bebe coming up in February and I’ve been alternating between sitting frozen in a panic state (i.e. watching cute cat and bunny videos on facebook) or festering about what to write (i.e. playing Skyrim for hours) that could work in a public forum.
There are random things roiling around in my fevered brain that cross my mind to blog about, but it feels to me that the first entry of the year should be on an up, positive, let’s-do-this-thing kind of note.
So–2012 is finally here. The year of the shift, the year of ascension. Feels the same to me, and then again, it doesn’t.
I am nowhere near qualified to tell you what is happening, nor am I 100% positive that the people who seem to be qualified really are. But if you want some deep information on the move from third dimensional to fifth dimensional consciousness that is supposed to be taking shape, here is a blog that you can check out.
It contains some very advanced information, so don’t get discouraged if you get confused. I have to read it in small sections and even then I still feel like an idiot.
I just found this today, and it’s pretty cool:
And my mother has a blog that I am not going to post the link to right now, as it contains some deep concepts and she’s my mommy and I want to protect her from people who might not be ready for it. If you are interested you can email me and I’ll be happy to give you the link.
If you are interested in this kind of thing, you can google “2012 shift”, “fifth dimensional consciousness”, anything along those lines, and you’ll get pages and pages of information about the changes that are supposed to have been and/or currently are taking place.
I would like to share with you, from my own tiny corner and for the new year, some things that work for me that you can put into practice in your own life. DISCLAIMER: This is not to imply that I think I have it all sewn up. Just that in not always having my shit together, I’ve learned some stuff that can be safely passed on without danger of hurting anyone.
First, stop talking crap about yourself, your life, and your future. Stop it. Stop complaining, and start stating, in the present tense, how you want things to manifest. In other words, ye olde positive affirmation.
My mother tells me that our guides cannot make any decisions for us, they can only help us facilitate our decisions. So we must state our intent and then be open to letting it happen:
I choose to have a pleasant, easy flight.
I work with people I like, in a job that fulfills my creative and financial needs.
I am happy and healthy.
I love my body.
I am surrounded by people who want the best for me.
I am safe and loved.
I have a lot of fun.
Etc., etc. Whatever it is, put it in the present tense and state it in a positive manner. Try not to be so specific that you screw yourself, because sometimes the Universe has better plans for us than we do for ourselves, and it’s nice to stay open to surprises. E.g. “I choose to work in an environment that most closely resonates with my energy.” as opposed to not having a stitch of musical talent and shouting into the wind, “I’m gonna be more famous than Gaga!”
Say these affirmations out loud. A lot. And don’t get all pissy when it doesn’t happen overnight. But you will be surprised at how much does happen.
I have noticed that when I put out some random happy statement on facebook, most people will concur, but there will always be a small contingent that is not feeling it. For instance: “Life is good. =)”. One person wrote “Whatever…” Of course that was an ex-boyfriend. One wrote “Wine?” And that would be my ex-husband, who knows me so well. And then another friend just wrote “Eh…” and I felt a little sad for him.
If you are writing “Eh…” on the sky of life (or facebook) right now, you are probably not creating a mental state in which life will feel good. Our thoughts really do manifest in our outer world. Even if you don’t believe that their vibrations change things on a quantum physics level, the actions that will naturally follow a thought like “Eh…” are not going to take you anywhere too wonderful. I know we all feel like that at times, I’m a cranky, people-hating bitch and will be happy to sit with you and rant over a cocktail or two. But it can’t hurt to take a look at where your thoughts have led you so far, and whether they could use an overhaul.
Second, and along the same line, take responsibility for the energy you are creating in your life. It’s probably safe to say that most people don’t just magically land in jail or addicted to drugs or screaming at someone in the grocery store. Especially in America, where we are, for the most part, given many freedoms. Your actions create the life around you. You draw people into your sphere that vibrate comfortably with your energy.
So if your energy is unhappy, selfish, blaming, shitty, that is what is going coming back at you. Are you giving, giving, giving and feeling exhausted and resentful because you don’t feel it’s reciprocated? This is because you are sending out the message that you are unworthy of love as you are, without doing everyone’s chores, and it answers in kind. Do you play the victim when bad things happen? Bad things happen to all of us no matter how positive we try to remain, and if you live in victim-mode you will never get the lesson that those situations are meant to bring. And then you will repeat the damn lesson over and over again in various forms until you get it. I am a pro at not getting it the first or second time, so I know whereof I speak. “Oh, thank you for that pebble, but I didn’t really feel it. Do you think you could throw a brick at my head instead? How about a wall? Do you have a wall you could drop on me?”
And lastly, lest this blog get too long and preachy: Be nice to yourself. Be kind to your body. Meaning:
–Be grateful for what you have.
–Eat healthy most of the time. Don’t fill your body with processed crap that makes you feel cranky and unhappy. Especially now, as we move toward a more crystalline form (if you believe that). If you must eat a lot of meat, spend the money on free-range, free of antibiotics, slightly less suffering. Eat your gd vegetables. Shitty food carries shitty energy, and you are what you eat. Literally.
–Stop smoking. Please. Nothing good will come of it and it makes you smell bad. And yes, I know how awesome it is and how hard it is to quit. I loved smoking and was a 1-2 pack a day girl for many years. Don’t beat yourself up if you’re having a hard time quitting, but please keep trying.
–Stop abusing your medications. You know who you are.
–Stop hating your body and face in an attempt to shame yourself into more self control, or pointing the flaws out loud before someone else can beat you to it. I know it’s hard. I do it too, but it only holds us back. Be grateful for a healthy body that has carried you through this world. There are many people, at least one I know that will read this blog, that would be very grateful for the gift of health, in whatever pear or apple shape it came in.
–Stop sitting in relationships and jobs (another form of relationship) that make you feel badly about yourself. This is hard with family and old friends, and we all need to make a living. But pay attention to your surroundings and whether they serve you, and if not, create an escape plan or stop calling the person back.
Okay, that’s all I can think of for now. Sending you all lots of love and light. I’m so grateful for my little group of readers, communicating with you is educational and brings much joy, so I thank you for your generosity of spirit.
Happy New Year 2012!

This is lovely. Hope you don't mind if I repost it? Oh, I mean link to it, sorry, stupid internet lingo.xxoo Greta
Email me your mama's blog! She nailed it on my reading she gave back in '08. She predicted my future like a boss. A little eeery how close she got the info.
Right the fuck on, Raff! I started 2012 meditating, which was VERY different for me. And though I suppose I have quite a ways to go before I achieve “crystalline form,” I've been doing my best to be positive, have most DEFINITELY been feeling grateful (especially for my health, as many friends grapple with theirs)and making sure I smile every time I see 11:11. Woo-woooo!
Greta, of course you can! I'm flattered.
This entry is chock full of great reminders on how to keep your trajectory positive. It's so important. If I may, I'd like to add “always look for the opportunity” – even in something difficult, one usually can find a gleam of goodness/hope/potential: an opportunity to work on communication skills, empathy, negotiation, development of personal strength, refining how to find peace in an unpleasant moment, a second chance to try something again, new knowledge gained… it's limitless. It does take practice, and I find so many people see that effort as too hard. It is easy to stay angry and focus on the bad (why else did we all love Ren from Ren & Stimpy so much?), but you miss out on so much. Cheers for spreading the good energy, Raff!
Yes! You are so right, Erika. Opportunity is an important addition. ❤
I would like a link to your moms blog too!!
I love to read your blogs, they are honest, funny, and so on the money, in how I think and feel about things, but just don't have the talent or time to write it down.
I would be very interested in reading your Mom's blog. Please email me the link at email@example.com.
Thank you and Happy New Year, Raf!
