Thank you everyone for all the wonderful birthday wishes yesterday. I had a great satisfying day. It was work from home Wednesday, so I was very productive which is satisfying, I’m at an exciting juncture with my work project (getting ready to launch), and seeing all your well wishes roll in brought a smile to my face. Also, Michelle changed our doorbell to the Happy Birthday tune. Ah the modern age…
The last year was a big change. My weekends went from bike riding and playing video games, to going to Home Depot, wall mounting TVs and hounding subtrades. Joking aside, it is really enjoyable to learn new skills and it’s been very rewarding to have the house. I never realized how much of a luxury having empty space is.
I’m very excited for what the next year will bring! Thanks again for the well wishes!
How long before we see a robot win a marathon? :-O
Boston Dynamics used to be owned by Google, but last year was sold to Softbank, who already have Japan’s bestselling ‘companion robot’, Pepper. Boston Dynamic’s first robot for sale will be coming out next year – their ‘robot dog’, SpotMini.
The robots are arriving…
For my birthday Michelle bought me a new TV for my Dance Dance Revolution room (yay, thanks!) but it doesn’t take VGA as an input (that’s reasonable for a 2018 TV).
My old 2007 Linux computer that was powering it didn’t have HMDI output onboard or on the video card but luckily I had another video card lying around with HDMI out. Sadly it needed 2x6pin extra PCI-e power and my supply on this box only had 1 of those…
But, I had an other motherboard in storage which is 5 years newer and had HDMI on the board! Ok so if I swap to that I’ll get a 5 year upgrade on the box! Alright, but there is no CPU cooler. Why would I cannibalizes that? No problem I’ll just swap in the current one, so I’ll spend 20 mins locating my thermal paste. Arg, that is socket 775 and the new one is 1155. But the motherboard has diagonal mounting holes! Yay! Alright now to just get all the back together so I can try out my new TV.
Thanks for the TV love. Sorry I made a mess of the counter…
Eye am compelled to share an energy that’s encapsulated my physical and metaphysical body over the last moon cycle. It’s been the most epic ride of my life. Magic and love and abundance like never before. I’ve been finding myself drifting in and out of this material world. In and out of time and space. I’m receiving uploads that the same level of experience found in the universe as a whole can be found within our human Soul as well. The same levels of “Being-ness”, the same divine Hierarchies found in the “immaterial” etheric, astral and higher planes of the universe as a whole are found within US. This realization of being a “MIRROR” of the Macrocosm is central to unfold the mystical process. This whole process circles around the magnetic axial pole of pure Being. The principle of macrocosm and microcosm, which represents this mirroring of levels is the foundation of all the spiritual and metaphysical traditions. From the formation of our cosmology, to awakening of dark programming, to our humble meditation practices, to world affairs… Everything in the universe affects and resonates with everything else. In the same manner, our own spiritual practice and level of consciousness affect and resonate in all the Planes of existence in the universe… This is also a reminder that, however strange the universe may seem to us, we and it share one nature and one life. No human vocal linguistics can display the gratitude Eye have for everyone that has been with me throughout this journey. From light being magical souls who are present with me this moment, in this body, in this material world, to the masters before me who have laid their genius into my foundation through my conscious. So much love. Love is the only Truth, everything else in an Illusion. ?

WHY ARE YOU TRYING TO SAVE THE WORLD?
Therefore, when the Way is lost there is virtue.
When virtue is lost there is benevolence.
When benevolence is lost there is righteousness.
When righteousness is lost there are rituals.
Rituals are the end of fidelity and honesty,
And the beginning of confusion.
~ Lao Tsu
Sitting with this today as I ponder motivation. Lately I’ve been struck by the lack of something that has been with me for most of my adult life – the desire to somehow “Save the World!” To “BE on PURPOSE”. I mean, that’s the rallying cry of most personal/spiritual development out there.
It feels really good too; to be of service, to put my attention on others, the altruistic high, the experience of “being a good person”, the experience of making a difference has given me a sense that my life has meaning.
Today, while I adore my work and can not imagine not coaching and working with clients to transform their lives in beautiful, positive ways, the WHY isn’t the same.
My friend John P Morgan shared the above lines with me a few days ago as he too recognized what I was saying.
What happens when one no longer needs Purpose as a bandaid to cover up the fears and difficult sensations of sitting in whatever the individual’s version of “the void” is. The utter lack of meaning. The insignificance of themselves, and it all. The pain we grapple with secretly, alone. Or just simply the boredom.
When we stop running from that and set aside the thrill ride of empire building/ambition/success/purpose etc., what arises?
It could be nihilistic, but that’s not how it feels.
No answers here, just the curious, open question and a twinkle of excitement for what comes next.
Like any method of divination, it’s all about the INTERPRETATION when you use them.
We live in a universe made up of nested fractals. You can gaze in any direction with the right mindset and see all the secrets of creation. But having deliberately made tools to help is always nice.
This is my newest Deck, and the one I use in my Getting To Know Your Oracle Deck online class. The language of trees is a favorite of mine – as often as not I feel more Tree than Person, so learning more about their magic soothes and activates my inner spaces.
Here’s a reminder to use your tools! Get them down off shelves or out from drawers and let them see the light of day.
The more consciously and deliberately we move through the world, the more we create lucid, connected, wise beauty in and around us. Let’s do that. Yeah.

Happy Sunday, internet family!
This is a beautiful world.
Yes, there are improvements make. Wounds to heal. Equations to balance. Freedoms to gain. Pleasures to claim. Community to regrow.
But we’re doing great. Our human race is really young. In many ways we are still just banging rocks together. As our understanding grows, so do our hearts grow to match. By each one of us remaining present and open, we create a wave that inspires others and shifts this place. We are all weird and we have unique missions, each person holding an integral piece of this huge fractalized puzzle.
Sending you blessings and encouragement for your piece as I hold mine as steadily and lovingly as I can.
Speaking of, many folks ask me where they can receive lessons in what I do. I don’t advertise at all and the right people always show up as a result of synchronicity and recommendation. But to keep you guys current on what’s going on, here are the classes and services you can find over on my website (charismelina.com – link in bio):
– Aura Workshop (2 hour online Workshop, delivered via email)
– Merkaba Workshop (same)

– Getting To Know Your Oracle Deck (7 part online class delivered via email also starting 4/1/18)
I also do the occasional private session, which you can find the info for on my site.
I love the internet. We can connect and share knowledge worldwide in a way that surpasses what has been available in long millennia.
Sending you guys unicorn love via this crazy awesome filter. May you glow with your unique, heart-fueled superpower(s) and bless our world.
Love you ?

Reminding you that beauty is everywhere. Flowers bloom and bees buzz in the heart of the city. You are a one-of-a-kind creation. Be proud of who you are and enjoy each moment. This bee is just doing her job, gathering pollen to feed her sisters and brothers. She has no idea how integral her work is. She doesn’t know that she, and others of her kind, are deeply important in the survival of so many other species.
I thanked her for this photo which she gracefully posed for, but she doesn’t know that she’s inspiring you right now – just by being herself. It is so with you, too. Keep your focus. Open your heart. Follow your calling. We’ll all benefit.

Yonge and Finch is in the vicinity of where my family moved when we were refugees from Romania. It’s where I went to kindergarden and met my best friend Oana when we were 7. I didn’t live right in that intersection, but when people asked where we lived, we’d give them that intersection so they’d get the jist. So weird to have this sh*t happen in Canada like that. It is such a wonderful, welcoming country. Especially to immigrants. Makes me really angry.
I will now proceed to non-confront with NETFLIX. The other option is the endless news cycle which will just stir the anger to an unhelpful level.
What, honestly, can regular citizens do?
