BRINGING INFORMATION TO LIGHT: RELEASE UPDATE

I mentioned recently that new information has me delaying the release of Ignoring the Rules: An Intriguing Approach to Resolving Calcium Toxicity.  Thanks to a recent trip I’ve gained additional perspective which I’ll be editing into the booklet today.  The intention is to have the booklet available for purchase by Sunday.

Despite being condensed this booklet will be comprehensive; thus, the delay.

As this trip took me to a place with geology that is significantly different than where I live for a number of reasons including mineral makeup in the soil, I had the opportunity to observe a number of EMF related experiences including the fact that after years, I was draining the battery in my cell phone at an accelerated rate.

I did not, however, have a relapse of EMF Sensitivity.

As this falls under the Gremlin Effect details will appear in an upcoming booklet on esoteric EMFs.

Another experience validated the migraine remedy I write about in Ignoring the Rules.  For the first time in decades I not only did not get a migraine prior to a thunderstorm, I experienced no change in the 48 hours prior to its occurrence.

Details about these barometric pressure migraines are in Ignoring the Rules, as is the cure I discovered!

What made this particularly significant is that there was a great deal of electromagnetic activity in the form of lightning.  

This is exactly the type of weather that would have sent me to the ER!

I also got an opportunity to validate my observations on the impact of 5G on EMF Sensitivity.

Which I have been researching for the previous two years.

All of this will be in Ignoring the Rules.

Fiction Update.  On another note I am renaming The Day Before to Dream Keeper.  It will still fall under the Dragon Core umbrella.

The Day Before was a working title so changing the name isn’t that big a deal when the story is still being written.

I experienced another interesting phenomenon that touches on how EMF Sensitivity can affect the creative process.  As I write in Ignoring the Rules as well as Calcium: The Old Man Mineral and Its Role in EMF Sensitivity, calcium toxicity can interfere with psi abilities, including instinct.

At best, your ability to connect to gut instinct is dulled.  At the extreme, as I write in Riding the Waves: Diagnosing, Treating, and Living with EMF Sensitivity, you lose all psi ability including being able to tap instinct.

I also wrote in those books how the remedies and ultimately the cure restored everything.

How this played into Dream Keeper is as follows: 

After finishing the second draft of the Dragon Core story I set it aside to get Ignoring the Rules ready for release.  Eventually I set that side to focus on the trip which was more or less a vacation.

I never really go on vacation.  Too busy absorbing the world around me, how I’m being affected, observing, experiencing.

At one point it occurred to me that there was a serious flaw with the Dream Keeper plot.

I’d known for weeks “something” was off but couldn’t put my finger on it.

A bit of contemplation and I was able to figure out what I needed to fix.

Thankfully, it wasn’t too much.

Even as I was willing I wasn’t looking forward to seeing how much of the original story I needed to rip out to accommodate this plot tweak.  Turns out I needn’t have worried.

Thank you gut instinct!

I have a feeling my subconscious mind was in touch with that instinct all along because as I started the edit process I saw that I’d already included elements that are ideal for this plot tweak!

To the extent I got chills when I read them! It was as if I’d planned it all along.

I realized as I was staring in shock at something so perfect I couldn’t believe – it was further evidence my unconventional approach to calcium toxicity is right on!

The creative process is driven by the same elements as gut instinct, something I will be writing about in an upcoming booklet on esoteric EMFs!

There’s more work to do on Dream Keeper but as I already paved the way for the plot tweak I can honestly say it is low stress.

Dream Keeper is on track for an Autumn 2021 release.

Stay tuned!

BRINGING A STORY TO LIFE: IN THE MOOD

Timing isn’t always everything.  

I’ve spent the past week doing some serious multi-tasking and as things seemed to have settled down a bit I set my energies to finishing a scene I’d set aside because it isn’t the type of scene I wanted to work on while distracted.

An intimacy scene.

So much for best laid plans.  I’d no sooner gotten started when I got a text from the dentist with links to forms that needed filling out.  

I can honestly say the dentist doesn’t bring to mind the energies of romance or intimacy.

Finished with that I took a break to get a snack which reminded me I needed to come up with an idea for dinner.  Finished with that I set back to work on the scene when I got another text asking me to review a web change.

Not happy with the image I explained what needed to change then went back to the scene.  Andddd… another text regarding a separate dental form.

Back to the scene and – another text with the updated web image.  That one needed a slight tweak so I spent some time on that.  Happy with how it turned out I sat down to work on the scene only to find I’d lost the romance energy thread.  

Like seriously?

Amused I decided I would give readers a glimpse of how it might go for a writer in a typical day.

It is an entertaining consideration – all these interruptions – but the post does serve another purpose.  In putting it down on paper, the distraction – the idea of it – is no longer in my mind.

NOW I can go back to the scene!

The Day Before, a Dragon Core story is on track for an Autumn 2021 release.

Stay tuned!

BRINGING A STORY TO LIFE: SOURCE

Enjoying a bit of peace and quiet and a much cooler morning.  It got so hot during our heat wave that our food processor bowl melted while in use.  The round area that has the blade come through is now oblong. 

 I loved hearing Aaron say, “Oh, that’s why it sounded so funny.”

I was listening to music through headphones at the time and missed all that audio fun.  Thankfully, we live in a time when you can get replacement parts easily; you don’t have to buy an entirely new appliance.

As I listen to the sounds of the morning which include enough wildlife I sometimes feel I live in a zoo, I’m mentally sorting through projects in the queue.   It isn’t just that there are a number of possibilities it’s the order in which they should be done. 

Temporal Awareness.  At the start of the pandemic shutdown I wrote about what it felt like having my temporal awareness turned on its ear.  

As someone who already worked from home the inability to have any contact with the outside world for months on end was surreal.

I channeled that frustration into writing making it one of the more prolific times of my writing career.

I finished Beacon, Rainmaker, Mirror, and Redemption among other projects in a span of about three months. 

It came at a cost.

Burnout.

I know that work burnout was a common problem during the pandemic.  I read several articles in which people talked about the effects of being shut in or – if they couldn’t work from home – being completely overwhelmed.  And yet I couldn’t relate.

Career burnout wasn’t my burnout.

It took until yesterday to understand that my burnout was related but different.  It wasn’t career burnout so much as life burnout. 

 As someone who has worked from home for twenty-seven years, other than a period of incredible productivity, it wasn’t my career that was impacted.

Outside acknowledging the challenges of going from minimal outside interaction to none, I never considered the impact of total lockdown on my life outside my career.

Work Front and Center.  There was a cost to the constant attention on work from home in our community and in the world.  It hid the impact of what was happening outside that construct.

When you’re so busy focusing on making something work you can miss all the areas of your life that are being starved of critical energy.

 Missing the Signs.  Because my productivity  was not negatively impacted  I missed warning signs that not all was well.  Or, if I did sense something wrong I simply channeled it into my work, exacerbating the problem.

Open Is Closed.  Regardless of the state of the states I still work from home.  Thanks to the delta variant and other unknowns it’s business as usual as far as the pandemic is concerned.

Masks, social distancing, and good health habits.

This lack of real change and the knowledge that it will likely remain so for the foreseeable future had me turning to my de facto approach, writing.

Excuse Me.  An interesting thing happened.  Somehow the message from the nonwork areas of my life that were suffering got to the productivity camp and, as you can predict, everything shut down.

Few things cause panic for an author.  Writer’s block is one of them.

Because my attention was on the impact to my productivity I missed that the symptoms had nothing to do with writing.

There was no writer’s block.

Ignoring the symptoms since I didn’t map them to nonwork issues, I continued focusing on my career.

It never occurred to me it was soul burnout related to the pandemic.

Meet Me Halfway.  Apparently, my higher self has a clue.  It figured out I’m going to double down on the creative outlet as a coping mechanism – something I’ve done my whole life – so it plugged into that part of the energy spectrum.  This led to a series of “coincidences” that got the message through.

That while my body and mind were doing just fine, my spiritual health was in need of some serious TLC.

The Edge of Nowhere.  I decided to work with Event Horizon which does an amazing job of pulling me out of myself so I can solve issues unhindered by “noise.”  Sure enough I started to see where energy blocks were having a negative impact.  As with all Event Horizon sessions, a number of solutions were offered to address the situation.

I Can’t Hear You.  It was during one of the better sessions that I realized that while I gave myself suggestions to address issues I wasn’t following up.  I kept setting the stuff aside for later after which I would go back to writing.  Luckily for me, this time I listened.

One Thing Feeds Another.  As I followed through on the suggestions I was inspired to go back and do another EH session during which more insight was gained and more suggestions given.  This went on for a few days and I noticed those other energy blocks began to dissolve.

In some cases I didn’t even realize there was a block until it was gone.

Helping Hand.  I continued working with Event Horizon and continued to follow through on the suggestions and continued to see improvements including subtle messages from the universe that helped me on my way.  And then a funny thing happened.  The messages became not so subtle.  In fact, they got downright direct.

Read My Lips.  The universe has a fun way of getting the message across and I’ve long known that when we ignore the messages, they get louder. 

This isn’t always a good thing.

In this case the increased volume was relatively harmless.  A book that had appeared in my sphere of awareness months ago reappeared.  This time I paid attention and bought it.  I also got an email from a dear friend, the right words at the right time.  Interestingly, both sources had the same message

Don’t forget the basics!

It was through each of these messages I realized that in all the chaos I had forgotten to nurture my own spirituality.

I was so busy being there for everyone and everything else I forgot to be there for this.

Energy In Bloom.  As I read the book and did the exercises which included relaxation, meditation, visualization, grounding, I found the creative whispering increasing in volume.

The voice of the source – what goes into bringing a story to life.

Bruised But Healing.  When you are a creative, to create is to feed the soul. The worst thing that can happen is to turn off the spigot but just as damaging, as I’ve learned, is to turn it on full blast. I believe my soul understands this now. I recognize the need to find other ways to nurture that soul.  Especially when the avenues open to me are cut off by lockdown.
