Touchstones daily meditation for Sunday, 1.31.16

Sunday, January 31, 2016

Sunday’s Touchstone meditation for the last day of January is by Philo Judaeus, and it states “The body is the soul’s house. Shouldn’t we therefore take care of our house so that it doesn’t fall into ruin?”

Therefore, “I will yield to the messages I get from myself so I can enjoy the physical pleasures of recovery and give my soul a better home.”

Pagan card Reading for 1.31.16
The Sun, 19th card is in reverse, which depicts a sexy young woman in a bikini, enjoying the sun, sand and beach, as she draws on the sand with a stick. Two kids are building a sand castle behind her, near the shore. But since the card is in reverse, it indicates that you might have negative feelings in the morning, or just feel bored and slow. (If tomorrow morning isn’t cloudy, then I plan to go out to somewhere I was planning to going in order to check out if they have some things I need, but I keep forgetting to go there for some reason. I haven’t been there in a long time, and it is only five miles away).

Initiate of Pentacles card is in reverse, and it depicts a woman wearing a green gown, and she is dressed like a goddess. It indicates that you know how to improve your situation and get out of your rut in order to continue becoming productive. You will also receive some important insights that will further help you. (That sounds like a good sign).

The Chariot card, 7th card, depicts some people by a station wagon with a big chest on top, which looks like they are going on some trip. This card has to do with achieving success and victory.(I hope this is true because I really need some success and victory)/

In the numerology aspect of this reading, these three cards add up to 27, and the number 27 reduces to 9. The number 9 means spirituality and completion.

Touchstones daily meditations for 1.30.16

Saturday, January 30, 2016

Saturday’s Touchstone meditation quote is by Archibald MacLeish, and it states “Man can live his truth, but cannot speak it.” Therefore, “Let me have the trust to give myself to the work of recovery and follow it where it takes me.”

Thoth Card reading for Saturday, 1.30.16
Ace of Cups card states that your cup is running over with divine inspiration, love, positive emotions, and you will feel very good on Saturday morning. (I woke up at noon, and I felt relaxed because I had a good sleep. But I didn’t receive any divine inspiration).

The Magus card, 1st card, is in reverse, which indications meditate with Holy Spirit for Spiritual messages and inspiration. You will get lots of inspiration about what you should do in your future. (I am considering on meditate with a candle tonight, since I didn’t do much in the afternoon, except relax. I hope I get some inspiration tonight).

The Moon card, 18th card, which is in reverse, which indicates that you shouldn’t take any action on Saturday and don’t start on any new projects. But instead you should listen to spiritual messages and guidance. You will receive intuitive messages. (I haven’t received any messages yet).

In the numerology aspect of this reading, the three cards add up to 20, and number 20 reduces to 2. The number 2 means relationship and cooperation. Inspirations from God on Saturday will prepare you for February. (I wonder what will happen in February for me that I need to prepare for it. Probably nothing much, just the same usual stuff).

Touchstones Daily Meditations for 1.29.16

Friday, January 29, 2016

Friday’s Touchstones meditations quote is by Ruth Benedict, and it states “We grow in time to trust the future for our answers.” Therefore, “Today, I will think about the tasks and rewards of this day and trust the future for what is unanswered.”
Lo Scarabeo Card Reading for Friday, 1.29.16
The Judgment card, 20th card, depicts an angel blowing its horn over two naked people who appear happy. This angel is telling you that it is time to be doing what you are meant to be doing. You will get a very loud and clear spiritual message on Friday morning, and this message urges you to take immediate action in order to move forward.  (I didn’t hear any loud and clear spiritual message today, but the only thing I was thinking about was my graphic novel. I didn’t think about anything new or interesting).

The 6 of Pentacles card has to do with temporary balance and harmony. You will get an opportunity, and it is important to take it because it will really help you. This opportunity might come from inspiration or a Spiritual message. (Again, I am not sure what this is. Maybe it is some idea via internet research or youtube video).

The Magician, 1st card, is all about action. You can make it happen by using everything you have because you basically have everything you need. It appears to be an opportunity about creating something that you really want to create. This reading is probably encouraging me to work on my graphic novel.

In the numerology aspect of this reading, the three cards add up to 27, and the number 27 reduces to 9. The number 9 means spirituality and completion, which encourages you to meditate and connect with God for Spiritual inspiration and guidance in order to make certain things happen.

American Idol, Farewell Season, Hollywood Week, Group Round

Thursday, January 28, 2016

In this two-hour episode of American Idol’s Hollywood Week, the hopefuls were asked to be in a group of 3 or 4 people. They need to be real, as they work together as a group. They scramble around looking for right people to join, and many people struggle. Some people clash, some stress out, and others are just not happy with certain people. Each group meets with a vocal coach, and the practice and rehearse on the song that the picked. There are still some people who are struggling to find a third person in their group. If they don’t find a third person, then they will get disqualified.

It is 6am, and many people are tired because they pulled an all-nighter trying to learn all the lyrics of a song and perform the song successfully. But they drive to Dolby Theatre in Hollywood for coaching, before each group takes their turn performing before the judges.

The first group of 4 did a good job, and they all make it to next week’s Hollywood Week. The next 4 are girls, and they make it, as well.

Between 10am and 2pm, Jennifer Lopez seemed very hungry, and she kept eating lots of chocolate. I think Keith said that he ordered sushi or something like that.

The next group makes it, as well as other groups.

Then, Trent Harmon is informed by his doctor that he cannot perform with a group because he has Mono. He has a doctor’s note, allowing him to perform alone. He sings solo for the judges, and they enjoyed his performance and singing. He makes it to next week’s Hollywood Week.

4 girls sing together, but only Shelbie, Michelle and Ashley make it. Lindsay is cut.
Elvie Shane is cut, but his three group members make it. Ashley is cut, but her three group members make it. Cameron is cut, while the three people with him make it.

At 11:36pm, Dalton and Kassy lose their member, and they need to find someone else. Meanwhile, another girl, Anatalia, is dumped in the hallway by her three members, and she scrambles around to find another group to join. She suddenly runs into Dalton and Kassy, and they decide to work together as a group.

By 6:35am, many hopefuls are at the cafeteria eating their breakfast.

Dalton, Kassy, and Anatalia performed together on stage, and all 3 make it. Jennifer states “everything happens for a purpose” because these three people sounded good together as a group.

Andrew, Sonika, and Stephany, the three people who dumped Anatalia, struggled during rehearsal. They sound good together, as well, and all three made it through group rounds. Yeah, I think that everything does happen for a purpose because Anatalia does sound a lot better with the other two people, and these three people sound good together.

Other people didn’t make it, and they packed their luggage to go back home.

Kylle, Kacye, Marcio and Jon performed together, and they danced to entertain the judges. All 4 men made it through group rounds. Joy Dove, Daniel Farmer, and Lindita performed together on stage. Although all three sounded good, Daniel was cut. Gianna, Eliz, and Dana performed together on stage, but only Dana and Gianna make it to the next level. Joe, Alesana, Olivia, and Jessica performed on stage, but only Jessica makes it. CJ, Jess, Jessica, and Zach performed together on the stage, but Zach doesn’t make it to the next level. Thomas, Thomas S., Joey, and Bryson performed together, and Joey and Bryson don’t make it. Manny, Malie, and Christian performed a strong performance, and the judges loved their singing. All three people make it, and the judges felt that this group was one of the best groups so far. Tonie, La’Porsha, and Marlena performed, and all three girls made it to the next level. Laurel, Marshall, drew, and John forgot their lyrics. So, only Laurel and Marshall make it to the next level.

Tune in next week for more of Hollywood Week competition in order to cut more people.

January 28 is Data Privacy Holiday

Thursday, January 28, 2016

At 12:33pm, when I turned on my computer, I was informed by Mozilla Firefox that January 28 is Data Privacy Day, encouraging everyone to make sure their software is fresh, clean, and properly maintained in order to make most of your online experience. Such experience includes having the best security and privacy, as you surf and travel the internet. It is therefore important to update your software.

I often update Firefox, especially when I feel it is starting to slow down and I am lagging a lot, and it suddenly informs that I need a newer version to make things move smoother and faster. Occasionally, I will also update Malwarebytes Anti-Malware in order to better help me clean my hard drive from unwanted shit as well as unwanted eyes spying on me or following me on the internet. I don’t know if all this hardware cleansing or detox really takes out all the unwanted and toxic crap from the computer, but I think it does makes things better than before.

I never cared for Yahoo and Explorer, and I quit them long time ago because they always created lots of problems for me. I just used them when I first got a computer, in which I was very inexperienced about computers. I learned fast, and decided to move on to better browsers and search engines. I just remember that being on Yahoo is very annoying because the people there are the most retarded people that I have ever met, and I just didn’t like associating with them. And, Explorer just plain created all kinds of problems that I couldn’t deal working with it any longer. I think all the rest a lot better.

Touchstones Daily Meditations for 1.28.16

Thursday, January 28, 2016

Thursday’s daily meditation quote is by Aristotle, and it states “To perceive is to suffer.” Therefore, “Today, I am thankful for all the life that I perceive and pray for the strength to meet the pain.”

Morgan Greer Card Reading for Thursday, 1.28.16
The Wheel of Fortune card, 10th card, has to do with transitioning into a better and happier period in your life. (That sounds good, but I am not sure what this transition is in regards to my life).

The 8 of Cups card has to do with walking away from something that could be interesting because you might be interested in something better. There might be some doubt and fear, but if you are interested in something, then go for it because it will lead you to a better place. (I am not sure what this is about because I didn’t receive any opportunity or interesting idea today, unless I just didn’t see it and missed an opportunity. I did the same thing I always do today, which is working on my graphic novel and doing some internet research).

The 6 of Swords card is in reverse, which indicates that you will achieve something quickly by going with an opportunity or a sudden idea that might make you feel insecure at first. So, something or an opportunity will enter your life on Thursday, and it is important not to walk away from it because of fear or insecurity. Just go for it, and it will lead you to a better place. (Actually, the only idea I got today is to use my artist mannequin more in order to improve my graphic novel action scenes. But I am not sure how this is going to lead me to a better place).

In the numerology aspect of this reading, the three cards add up to 24, and the number 24 reduces to 6. The number 6 means temporary opportunity, or temporary harmony and balance. So, keep your eyes opened for an opportunity on Thursday that can lead you to a better place. If you miss it, in which I usually do, then it will pass you by.

American Idol, Farewell Season: Hollywood Week, Lines of 10

Wednesday, January 27, 2016

The 190 hopefuls traveled to Hollywood to compete in Hollywood Week. The first test is the “Lines of 10,” where ten people at a time appear on the stage, and they take turns singing for the judges. The judges have to now narrow it down by picking the best of each ten and rejecting others. Personality will also be considered in this performance in order to help the judges pick the ones that most stand out. This one-hour episode basically just summarized the Lines of 10 competition, where some move on to the next step, while others were rejected and went back home.

Day 1:  Around 95 young people performed on the stage and half made it through.

Day 2: The other 95 young people performed, and many were rejected.

Tune in tomorrow night in order to watch more of the Hollywood Week competition, as more people are rejected and a handful will be chosen to compete on American Idol’s Farewell Season.

I am not sure exactly how many of the 190 hopefuls performed tonight, but I wonder if the “Lines of 10” will continue tomorrow night, and the judges will use other forms to help narrow down the hopefuls to who they would like to see perform on the last American Idol competition. I noticed that there were lots of teenagers, and the youngest was probably fifteen, while the oldest was probably in their twenties. They are getting younger because I think that the judges are seeking a new Justin Beiber and Britney Spears. I also noticed that they did a lot of editing because they don’t show everything. They used to show more shit before, especially during the auditions. They show looks like it has been cleaned up and polished a lot because it looks more professional.

Touchstones Daily Meditations for 1.27.16

Wednesday, January 27, 2016

Wednesday’s Touchstones meditation quote is by Bill Lemley, and it states “When nobody around you seems to measure up, it’s time to check your yardstick.” Therefore, it is important to remember this quote, “I cannot force myself to be less critical, but I can let go of my willingness so my more easygoing side comes forward. I can be less judgmental of myself and others.”

Bonefire Card Reading for Wednesday, 1.27.16
As he displayed the three-card spread in view, I notice that all three cards are in reverse, again, which seems to be the trend this week. Maybe there is an energy shift, or some weird changes happening.

The Fool card is in reverse, which indicates that you lack having faith that things will work out for you. It might make you hesitant and reluctant to take certain risks in life in order to help you move forward into the right direction. (I am not sure what kind of risks I need to take here, but I am mostly just working on my graphic novel trying to finish it and hopefully published it some time in the future).

The Temperance card, 14th card, is also in reverse, which might indicate some kind of business, career, or work problem. (Well, yeah, there are always obstacles in work, but I often try find a creative solution to get around it or over it in some way).

The 6 of Cups card is also in reverse, which indicates that your lack of faith and insecurity are currently just temporary feelings. (That is a good sign that it is temporary negativity).

So, if you turn the cards upright, where the first card is 6 of Cups, then Temperance, and then The Fool card, then you can somehow turn your life around. The 6 of Cups card indicates that you might consider meditating and connecting with God for positive inspiration and Spiritual Guidance. The Temperance card is about detoxing the negativity that surrounds you, which is created via connecting with God. And, The Fool card indicates that you will be able to move forward without any fear, insecurity or lack of faith.

In the numerology aspect of this reading, these three cards add up to 20, and the number 20 reduces to 2. The number 2 means relationships and cooperation with the Holy Spirit and Angels for inspiration and Spiritual guidance.

Organizing my Schedule

Wednesday, January 27, 2016

I woke up at 7:30pm, and I noticed that I have hangover. I am not sure why. It could be from the veggie wrap that I ate because I don’t know what they are putting in these foods. Some of these foods give me a bad headache due to the ingredients the Zionist corporations contaminate. But I need variety in my consumption, and occasionally I will have a craving for some kind of vegetarian or vegan wrap. It is hard to eat the right food, or at least find something that is pure and untampered with. But I guess I need to do more detoxing.

Anyway, I got up, fed Gumby, ate my breakfast, and got ready for yoga. I drove to the gym at around 11am. When I arrived, I noticed that the parking lot was filled with Cox vans. It was like a Cox Communications convention or something. I wonder what they are doing at the mall. I felt tired during yoga class, but I still did OK. After yoga class, I went to the parking lot to notice that the Cox vans have disappeared. I guess they finished their work at the mall.

I went home to enjoy a yummy salad with an avocado as well as a cup of espresso with some light colored crema on top. I decided to internet surf because of my headache, although I really wanted to work on my graphic novel. But I need to rest my head in order to draw better. I still have some detox food left over, and I should probably enjoy a detox smoothie for dinner to end my day.

Touchstones Daily Meditations for January 26.

Tuesday, January 26, 2016

Tuesday’s Touchstones meditation quote is by Hyemeyohsts Storm, and it states “Within every man there is the reflection of a woman, and within every woman there is the reflection of a man. Within every man and woman there is also the reflection of an old man and an old woman, a little boy and a little girl.” Therefore, “I will notice the reflection of small children in old faces, old people in children’s faces, and men and women in each other.”

Avalele Street card reading for 1.26.16
As he sets out the three-card spread in view, I notice that all three cards are in reverse, which have to do with a shift in energy or something like that, as well as these new cards look like computerized digital art scenes on each card, which actually makes these cards more modern than the usual card scenes.

The 10 of Cups card is in reverse, which indicates that you might not feel like you are moving forward today because it appears slow and boring. (My day was average today because I started out slow, but I did some errands, worked on my graphic novel, and then went to the gym. But I felt that my main character in my graphic novel is moving forward in the story, which is a good sign).

The High Priestess card, 2nd card, is also in reverse, and it depicts a woman playing with two cats. This card indicates that you have few information, but you are still taking lots of action in order to move forward in a productive way. (I think that this is true for me because I have been working steadily on my graphic novel in the New Year in order to be more productive and try to finish the whole thing by the end of 2016. This is my main New Year’s Resolution Plan).

The Knights of Coins card is also in reverse, which indicates that you need to focus on your work in order to create positive work. (True. I need to focus more on my graphic novel in order to continue keeping the story moving along until the end without any lags or drawing block issues).

In the numerology aspect of this reading, these cards add up to 13, and the number 13 reduces to 4. The number 4 means stability and structure.
