Seeing Danger Everywhere

March 9, 2017
—–
Last year former CIA head Leon Panetta found himself drowned out at the Democratic convention with shouts of NO MORE WAR:

Just a few days ago, the 78 year-old Panetta told CBS news that Trump’s tweeting weakens the presidency and  (GASP!) prevents him from starting wars. This… is a disappointment to him?

“I think, I think that is raising the most serious danger with regards to the ability of this president to relate to a very dangerous world,” Panetta said.

Dangerous world…

One of the key components of the far right-wing mindset is the firm belief that we live in a dangerous world which must be subdued and conquered through strength.

Rudy Giuliani is a case in point.
I remember seeing Giuliani give a speech to the GOP convention back when he was considered relevant. Like many conservatives he sees threats everywhere. After that, he spoke about this almost every time he delivered a speech. He insists that the world is a dangerous place, filled with people who want to kill us.

How does this happen to a person?

As with many fear-based people, Giuliani suffered early-childhood abuse at the hands of his parents and he now labels that very abuse as the best thing that ever happened to him. 
Giuliani – even today at age 72 – tells the story of being a 3 year-old in Brooklyn where the other kids worshiped, as children are often wont to do, the Brooklyn Dodgers, their local baseball team.
At that time, Giuliani’s father – for reasons unknown, other than the fact that his record shows him to be a sadistic thug (of the type Giuliani later make a career out of prosecuting) – would dress little Rudy in a NY Yankees uniform and send him out of the house. For wearing the uniform of the Brnox team in Brooklyn, Rudy would get beaten up. Every day. And his old man did nothing to help. In fact, he just kept sending Rudy out in that uniform – which all the other kids hated.
Sounds pretty grim, right?
But Giuliani says that what his father did helped build character. Well, yeah, a WARPED character.
From the NY Times in 1989:
When Mr. Giuliani was about 3 years old, his father, a dedicated Yankees fan, bought his son a Yankees uniform and cap. Mr. Giuliani’s mother dressed him in the uniform and sent him out to play in Flatbush. He was pounced on by a group of boys almost immediately. They were Dodger fans.
”They took the hat and threw it in the mud,” Mr. Giuliani recalled. ”They threw me in the mud, too, and probably whacked me around a little bit. I ran upstairs and either my mother or father said, ‘Well, now you’re going to be a Yankee fan.’
”So,” he continued, ”I kept wearing that Yankee uniform, and I kept getting thrown in the mud.”
He is still a Yankee fan.
Note the repression: the kids PROBABLY whacked him around. He doesn’t know? He cannot tell if his mother or father gave him dubious advice that he still obeys, yet he QUOTES that advice?
He was THREE YEARS OLD at the time and was still relating this tale of woe at age 45.
At over 70 he continues.
These are signs that a person suffered greatly and still carries it about in a repressed/mythologized way. Is the brutality Rudy suffered at the hands of the kids at a truly formative age, and his family’s indifference to his suffering, the reason for his seeing the world as a dangerous place? For him, at the time it was dangerous! Whatever the cause – and this is the alarming part – Giuliani STILL insists on wearing a Yankee uniform whenever he can. He sends out SIGNED pictures of himself this way. As an old man, Giuliani is still reacting to a situation that happened in 1947…
Compare Giuliani’s story with the story of Hillary Clinton’s mother having thrown her out of the house at age 4 – and her need to repeat the tale over and over and over while insisting that it was an act of motherly love and character building. Hillary’s mother did this because Hillary was abused by bullies and she came home crying. Clearly what the mother did – rejecting a child in pain – was worse than anything the other kids did. A 4 year-old RELIES on the parent. But her mother punished her in a most horrible way that without doubt set off a crisis of separation anxiety. And this too NEVER left Mrs. Clinton. Even as an elder, she still needs to please her dead mother:
People with untreated/unresolved childhood trauma are not “crazy” nor are they necessarily “bad” people. They are damaged people. These people suffer deeply yet they will never acknowledge it. After 60 years of living like this, it becomes not a part of who they are but who they are in their entirety. And putting such people in positions of power is dangerous. Lethal. Ask the surviving citizens of Libya and Honduras – where Hillary “stood up to bullies” – how they liked having her help…
Clearly, there exists in such damaged people a stubbornness that makes them adhere to the self-created mythology of their brutal childhood – while projecting it onto the world. They still say, to dead parents, It’s NOT my fault, Mommy/Daddy! The WORLD is DANGEROUS! Don’t blame ME!
In my work as a Tarot Consultant I regularly hear from people who have undergone the most horrible things that life can throw at a person. Yet they sought out help and coped with the problems in a productive way. They all have in common a willingness – a desire! – to face the issue and resolve it so they may not be dominated by dead fears.
None of us grew up unscathed. But many of us got help in dealing with these things rather than allow them to fester to the point where we compulsively live our lives in reaction to a situation that no longer exists.
On a personal note: For years I have told people that I had a childhood only Charles Dickens could have written. I can never undo it – but I don’t have to mythologize it. The physical torture I endured and the mental abuse – these are part of who I am and always will be, but they do not RULE or DEFINE who I am.
Because I got help.
The last thing I can imagine about myself is that at age 70+ I will be standing in front of people I don’t know, repeating day after day stories of early childhood abuse and praising my parents for inflicting this damage on me.
Looking at Hillary Clinton and Giuliani, I have to wonder what happened to Panetta so many, many years ago that now, at age 78, he can face a crowd of THOUSANDS saying to him NO MORE WARS and have it mean absolutely nothing to him. He SMILED at this! I would certainly question myself if I underwent that experience. Judging from his subsequent comments, Panetta only saw that as confirmation that the world is dangerous – meaning, the world is against him personally.
Do we really want such people in charge of our society?
Really?

Hallowe’en Books To Ensure a Good… Fright

October 13, 2015

The SCARY season nears… Of course if you regularly watch FOX “news” then you can ignore this because you live in a constant state of fear anyway. And you probably cannot read. So go play with your “Official Good Guy With A Gun Kit®” and have a nice day. Somewhere else.

So as we all know… according to legend, this time of year finds the veil between this world and the next thinning to the point of allowing spirits to more easily reach us. And this is the time to get into some good old MAGICK with a pair of vintage spell books now reissued at popular prices. Originals run into big bucks – and if there is one scare I disapprove of, it is sticker-shock.

Now who could resist such a charming book?

“Black Magic, as it has been called, is the expression of the superstitions of primitive men. In all of us, to a greater or less degree, there is a bit of the primitive. As we are able to overcome these instincts, we are inclined to scoff at those who still cling to their superstitious beliefs.” – From The Foreword. A CLASSIC book on the art and beliefs of Black Magic in various cultures. This publication marks the long overdue return of a classic in the field. Concise, well ordered and utterly fascinating, this new volume contains footnotes that reflect the latest developments in the field. A MUST HAVE for any occult library!

Another Fake Media “Crisis”

January 27, 2015

So SUPER-STORM JUNO came and went with a fizzle. I knew this storm was another Ebola-style media “crisis” when I heard an NPR “reporter” gravely announce: “Some say we will get winds of 75mph.” 
The phrase SOME SAY means: “I just made this up.” And when I saw that BREITBART reported a huge, horrible storm, then I knew for sure there was nothing to feel concerned about. Government officials need to stop relying on TV and Internet “news” for their decisions. 
This shrill hysteria – hysteria that had desperate people crashing into supermarkets – was not erring on the side of caution. It was erring on the side of ratings. 
Orson Welles and his historic War of the Worlds broadcast showed that some people will believe anything that mass media puts out. 
Ever since then, they have whipped up one fake fear-crisis after another. In the last year, between the phony EBOLA panic and yesterday’s totally over-hyped SUPERSTORM JUNO, it seems clear that we need congressional hearings on these over-paid buffoons who claim to report news. And don’t get me started on WORST JOURNALIST Don Lemon tooling about the deserted streets of New York in his fatuous BlizzardMobile.
Oh well.  Now that every storm is an event and has to have a name, what comes next, a theme song?

With all this in mind, I present this post again:

Doing Something About The Weather

Well, not really about the weather, but about the weather forecast. Yesterday, here in NYC rain was predicted yet it never came. Today they said it would be warm, the temperature will not see 60°. Yes, they do get it wrong way too often. Surveys show them at best accurate 75% of the time. That is why they hedge their bets by saying “there’s a 50% chance of rain” meaning it will rain or it won’t. Thanks guys. It’s ALWAYS going to rain or not. As a Tarot reader if I had the dismal record of a TV/Radio weatherman, I would have no clients. And deservedly so. Just listen to my Tarot reading show (Rev. Eliot’s Magickal Window) at the ask1radio archive – or live at 11 Eastern Time on Wednesday nights – to see for yourself how accurate I am. I don’t need to trumpet my accuracy when it is there for people to hear. But why can’t weather predicting pros, with all their satellites and gazillions of dollars worth of equipment, not measure up to me, a plain, old fashioned Tarot reader? So here is my plan – and you can join me:

I am going to use occult means to predict the weather and compare it with the professionals. For a period of time I will use a pendulum to see if I may divine the weather. I found a weather-related pendulum chart on-line and I will print it out and use it. I will ask at night about the next day and then verify in the morning. And I will check during the day, keeping meticulous records. And then I will report back. Try it yourself and let me know what happens. Here is the chart (click on it to enlarge, then grab it):

Reader’s Review of THE COLLECTED MAGICKAL ESSAYS OF REV. E.M. CAMARENA

By tedda

Aug 17, 2009

“The Collected Magical Essays of Rev. E. M. Camarena”

Should you be at the dawn of realizing that an entire world exists just beyond the edges of your own five senses and are wondering how it all works and what your own place is within it, then this marvelous Magical book is just the one for you. This tightly wrapped volume of essays draws into scope everything you might expect in a book dedicated to western esoteric studies — the occult, rituals, spells, tarot, talismans, black magic, religion, the Tree of Life, as well as a few good pointers of what to do and what is wise not to do. The author illustrates by example the results of his own magical workings which range from sheerly astonishing, to the hilarious. And, I mean to say so funny that you can’t stop laughing and when you do, you want to call your friends and tell them about it! Startled, laughing, and then whispering “wow” to yourself, you hurry to turn the next page for the next surprise. Be fooled not by the size of this snappy little volume, for part of the brilliance of this neatly sculpted work is the very precision by which Camarena streams more highly energized knowledge on its pages than you’d find in stacks of other books on the subject. As he explains how beautifully Magick fits into our daily lives, it seems that he’s walking along next to you, showing you the ropes, the landscapes, scenery and shortcuts in a style so familiar you’ll feel that he’s from your own hometown, taking the uncertainty out of the uncommon. As disarming and charming as the author is accomplished, with a doctorate in biblical studies, a newspaper publishing business, and having theater and film writing under his belt — you may sense the Rev. Camarena’s elegant style, and that he is very smart in addition to being an esoteric practitioner. He knows his stuff and ties up the package by swinging you past the Golden Dawn, Aleister Crowley, the works of Geoff Gray-Cobb and provides a diamond cut clear view of the Central or Middle Pillar Ritual. Everything you need to land on your feet running in the ways of Magick. The book is filled with treats reminisent of an earlier time, I will not reveal these goodies, but will suggest that the author has a formidable knowledge of language, he is a master of words and perhaps the biggest literary surprise will be found at the end of the book, but in truth, the whole book reads like a magical Fourth of July fireworks display on paper. More introspectively, shall I close by commenting that in this complex world of ours, I feel that Rev. Camarena has distinguished himself by his humanitarian nature. By offering so much to anyone willing to read this book, I wonder if he is the type of person who will not move forward unless he is assisting others to progress as well? I do not know the author, but I did ask a question of him via his website which answer was of the kind making me curious to read his book. I’m glad I did, it is well worth its price and it will travel along with me on my journey as well.

L’amour Fou

March 14, 2013

fool_thumb1

Ah, the mad love! The fool… In Tarot we have a card representing the fool. The Fool is abandon, wildness, anything for love and madness! In an early draft of the great and justly famed THOTH TAROT by Aleister Crowley (no, he was not a satanist. You have to be a christer to be a satanist. Like Pat Robertson. He mentions satan more than he mentions his god…) I say, in the Thoth Tarot an early design by artist Lady Frieda Harris for the Fool card showed us the quintessential, dare I say archetypal, fool of modern time. Harpo Marx. It was an inspired choice but, alas, it did not make it into the final cut. The first time I had my cards read oh so many years ago it was with the Thoth Deck. It is fully described in what David LeMieux calls the strangest book ever written: THE BOOK OF THOTH

Hear me reading Tarot cards LIVE and FREE on the ASK1RADIO network Wednesdays at 11pm Eastern time. The show is Rev. Eliot’s Magickal Window.

Expand MIND POWER in 2013

December 28, 2012
A perfect gift to give someone special to start the new year with… (if I do say so myself.) I can say without reservations that without mind power I would be deader than AM radio. I even used it to eliminate pain that the doctors said would NEVER go away. That stumped them! They didn’t know what to make of it.

The mind is utterly powerful!

Remember, everything you see, feel, touch, hear – is an extension of your nervous system. Reality is less real than you know.  It CAN be manipulated.
