Psychic Reading Skill

October 28th, 2018

After nearly twenty years playing with my “psychic reading” skills I became very confident and effective.  Had lots of questions and there were a plethora of folks with answers but most answers failed to ring true in my experience.  I rekindled  my novice “reading space” and joined the Berkeley Psychic Institute.  They don’t accept “professional psychics” so I had to drop that stance.  The cool part is that I  used my professional counseling money to pay the tuition.  BPI had more rules than answers but I soon learned that the structure was what I really needed.  An artist needs structure to produce their art form—the theme and expression are subjective and the same with counseling.  It was fun and very demanding with plenty of group political dynamics.

When the founder transitioned, BPI faded and diminished to its present reduced size.  A lot of the old BPI students did what I did, started their own training centers.  I formed the “Order of the Ascended Rose” in San Diego County and operated that for over fourteen years.  It was also fun; less rules but same structure framed as guidelines and also plenty of group political dynamics (human drama).  I closed that center and retired to Washington state where my wife and I now live.  If I can be of service for any questions you might have on “intuition” or “psychic readings” please e-mail me (

Some of my friends and former students came to visit for a week to explore a few advanced reading techniques.  They now “read” at a professional counseling service in the San Diego area but plan on opening their own service in the near future.  Below is a story about “reading screens” and a sample discussion on that concept.   We also produced two “YouTube” videos on intuition while they were here and the links are listed.

Because of the challenge I had getting meaningful answers when I was a professional counselor I always left the door open for questions from other professionals.  One such reader had an issue with her “reading screen”—double vision.  She had one image overlaid on the identical image below it.  Turns out that when she started she went to a training center to learn and they instructed her to create a screen (like a movie screen) which she did.  The subconscious in humans is all patterns and in a sort of state of balance with dialectic forces.  When a person attends to a pattern or imagines a change the pattern goes into  chaos which makes all or some of it conscious.  The person then has a question that they can’t make a decision on which is why they go to counseling.  A good counselor will fill in the missing data or explain the conflicting terms.  Informed, the person may thus make a decision and create a story (map) to move forward in life.  These patterns are subjective ideas (potentials) and need to be converted into the objective world of language to define their potential.  Imagined ideas are subjective; they don’t have a form or a location.  The “reading screen” is an assigned location and not a thing.  All that is needed to transform the patterns into something with a potential somewhere is a gateway into our objectified world.  You may decorate that gateway as much as you like but two will cause an issue.  We just destroyed her extra screen—problem solved.  Links to intuition chats:


Just Energy

September 27th, 2018

Lots of folks consider “intuitive counseling”, “intuitive reading”, “intuitive coaching” and even “intuitive science” as some type of magic.  For humans intuitive processing (inductive thinking) is always on and it is fast.  You in fact “white noise” it out to use the analytical part of your brain (deductive thinking).  This is a comparative human skill that evaluates each conscious event you are attending to and compares it to any similar event you may have experienced in the past.  Yes, this expedites decision-making for someone with lots of life experience and good assessment tools (present and conscious); but no two events are identically the same and you can easily get misdirected with assumptions.

The magic I think they refer to is that some folks report awareness of the energy around us that may be influencing us.  As a young child I felt the effect of these energies and always looked in their direction to confirm.  I would naturally state, “I thought I just saw something.”  All the kids I ever knew had similar responses and some perceived this energy as “beings.”  I never shared that perception—just the influence of the energy to make something happen.  Over time recognizing familiar energy patterns became part of my intuitive data base.

When in college I was out with three friends and on a whim we went to a “neon sign” psychic for fun.  I was the last to get a “reading” and the gypsy lady started by asking me why there were numbers all around me.  I explained that I was an engineering student and I worked part-time in a grocery store.  She inquired if I saw a child in the room and I confirmed that I perceived the energy of a little timid girl and perhaps from a foreign country (she was planning to adopt her sister’s child).  She was impressed with my vision and we spent the time developing my skill and confidence.  The other three received a typical default psychic reading.  I didn’t feel the need to share my experience and reported that my reading was “same same.”  After this I began coaching fellow students and honing my skills.

Ten years later I had my second experience with a psychic  because I was curious how numerology worked.  She wrote out my name, jotted the associated numbers and started to write several pages longhand while explaining her process.  Half-way through she paused and asked if I ever used the name Christopher.  I confirmed that I have used several different pseudo names and noticed that my energy changed.  The name Christopher felt strong and safe to me but this was all just a fun research project.  She then asked me how long I had been advising folks based on the energy influencing them.  We became friends for several years and I changed my name to Christopher.  This launched a “part-time” career that I have been practicing for over fifty years now.


Creation Game

August 19th, 2018

If in fact we may create at will, why all the struggle and limitation plaguing humans?  Imagine life as a game and no matter how well we play in the end we all die.  Is that not the nature of most games—a start and a finish?  Rich or poor, happy or sad, well or ill makes no difference at the finish line.  Is it wise to assume an after-life, soul personality or a heaven to hang out in?  We tried all those notions and folks holding those benchmarks as sacred have all passed with no report to confirm such assumptions.  There cannot be an absolute truth or there would be no will to imagine the game of life differently.  Boundaries only stabilize when they cease to be stakes in the game.  I think we need to take a close look at how the game plays out.

From our first moment of reasoning we could imagine things differently; we say we seek such opportunity but in fact filter random out because of the threat—death is a random event and not a habit of life.   But the concept of meta programs point to random as the starting point for life; and a diversion to the story of life as a learned habit experience supporting potential for change (past lives, karma, etc.).  We do most certainly secure into the habit of life as familiar and when that fails we hit a limit or threshold.  An unwise but common move in the game is to become laissez-faire and drop all those elements we are pined against down into the overcrowded level below.  A dive into chaos is not a smart move.  At this threshold point we may instead pause, analyze what is tabled and create a plan to secure a path forward.  To analyze is a process to imagine different outcomes and a plan it to imagine a future.  Not important to find the perfect course of action or even to have the plan works.  The game is about creation and will; the structure (rules and components) are revealed as you engage.  Each progressive level provides more complexity in structure.  Cool game!

The very fact of the limitations of conscious awareness and the choke of threshold make this game of creation and will a fun challenge.  With deterministic chaos we could just tumble in and reach the same goal that well strategized moves produce but the journey “abound the board” may play out less pleasant.  Is a rewarding “life” of potential and service the preferred path?  Victimhood, tragedy, trauma and ill health are less desirable markers to embrace.  If we are all players in this game perhaps the magic is how the players interact.  Is landing on someone’s owned “Boardwalk” a death (end of game), a disease (delayed end) or an opportunity to negotiate.  Finding solutions and style of playing are terms of relationships.  The skill of magic.





Magic and Structure

July 19th, 2018

Are you starting to see how associated magic is, causing change to occur in conformity with will, to the very act of creation, causing something to be?  Both definitions are subjective; a theme, idea or consideration to entertain or will into action, motion and of course balance between said theme and other considerations that have been relegated into objects.  Our human range of consciousness is very limited (concept of time) and to clear space we may assign an idea to a symbol in the external system (outside our concept of self).  Like taking a picture, it represents the idea in form but will eventually fade and deteriorate.  The only limit to this is our ability to perceive the assignments made.  How many ideas have you held sacred (transformed) that have failed to show up in form?  The challenge is structure, the logical and analytical search engine that we created to perceive all of this in some practical order (content for a story we may fabricate).  This system is developing as we culture it into enough complexity to include all those abstract ideas we have manifested into form.  Once this scheme is secure our attention may move to how the internal energy flow produces this magic and perhaps even creation.

Deborah and I, on our recent trip to Peru, experienced a local shamanic ritual.  The structure there is not developed yet enough for them to utilize  the concept of assignment; thus the ritual was based on transference.  Simple idea that “good stuff” may be exchanged for “bad stuff”.  We gain nutriment from eating healthy food, wash away dirt in a bath, undergo training to become skilled and wiser, etc.  The shaman carefully unwrapped an assortment of bundled local food items and celebration pieces like confetti to compound, like a pharmacist, a ritual packet of the “good stuff.”  Of course he blessed and rubbed this sacred package on each of us to activate the transfer and then destroyed the altered parcel of now “bad stuff” in a fire.  There was a clue that these local folks were close to the perception of assignment because the shaman revealed that, counter to tradition, he was training his daughter to become a shaman.  Do you see how slow this structure unfolds?  Since the invasion of the Spanish and infiltration of religion these folks have been exposed to the concept of assignment but are just now starting to apply this concept.

As we Americans move into the structure of Post-modern Culture, it will be interesting to observe how our art of magic matures to flower into the complexity and variations revealing.  We have always been and will always be whole but need space and structure to allow for that perception to be perceived in our conscious range.  We are the magicians and the game is unfolding.


Creation as Solitaire

June 11th, 2018

A human is an object/force with amazing potential for creation but unable to be conscious of that potential, will, drive or force as one image now.  Traditionally we make up stories to entertain that potential knowing that the stories could be possible but not necessarily true.  In the world of magic, a world where creation is imagined at will, we would need every potential of will represented.  Remember, stuff is an assignment and referenced to a location which makes it consistent—same place and same stuff—but energy is a force with movement or at least the potential for change.  I model this imagined idea of assignment to a limitation in potential for energy at a location as a compression or a type of holding of the force.  Subsequent to the assignment or the act of compression would be the restoration to energy, or decompression known as entropy.   If we imagine a balance of both form and potential for change we would need empty space to accommodate this perception.  This is just my model to understand what I’m not able as a human to “know” and not something anyone needs to believe as true.

A creation now for the game of life would need to be whole, all possible and perhaps assigned to a large location like the universe.  Every sub-location would reflect a different potential for the complete creation.  Every version or stream of possible human would reflect that limitation of all possible by the nature of the location attended to and the stream attending.  Now we have an imagined game with structure and it is playable.  Every version of player and every version of move would be contained within the system.  Within the context of the created structure (the rules or guidelines) you could experience any potential.  This is why I teach securing the concept of “no” and “done”—the nature of regulations.  Every location would offer a potential but only the version contained with the players stream.  It would be wise to have a sense of how your version of being would respond to a potential before you attend to that location.  This is why I teach securing “we” to sample those potential.  Simple steps: learn to know you (your marker or version), secure your relationship with the structure (attend to possible moves or change) and discover what a potential at a location has to offer by observing someone else residing there.  If you sample their version of being while they are at a location you would have a clue of how your version would differ at that same location.  The more folks or players you sample the better you will become at projecting your outcome in potential at that same location.

Is the universe really inside of “us” or is that imagined stream of sensory data describing a “real” universe somewhere outside?  Can you imagine a game of solitaire so complex and what would you use for markers to distinguish all the imagined players?  Only a god could do that.


Part 2 of Assignments, Stories & Models

May 25th, 2018

This present series of blogs is about magic.  I’m simply defining magic as creation at will.  Creation being the act of imagination and will be the act of intention.  To have intention you need someone to attend and some attention.  If you are conscious, present here now, and attending to anything, it may take a little time, but you can imagine it different.  This is the fun part.  Our ability to be conscious is limited and distraction is immense.   We may zoom in on what we are attending to and gain discernment but lose range.  We may zoom out and gain a larger range but lose all the details.  And with limited consciousness the expanse of range has limitation.  Some of the distractions are very important, some cautions and others opportunities to entertain.  But life is movement and balance and said movement produces the concept of time.  Somewhere in your vast unconscious are unique meta patterns for you that tune in how long (time), how much (size), how to sort (preference), and a few others.  Is it becoming obvious that control is also an illusion?  We start to label, by sharing or assigning, everything that catches our attention.  We created a digital symbolic system, language, to represent and share this database and we have an automatic (unconscious) program that will search and reveal data.  The default for this search engine that is always working (intuition) is familiar.  Variation in standards for searching for data may be assigned to different definitions or roles for the same individual and we title this states.  Artists, craftsmen, professionals are all proof that this default may be expanded but over time it condenses and alters data to conserve space and energy.  Yes, the assigned name makes the data an object which then has entropy and decays.  Those unconscious meta markers change in how they perceive value also over time and this influence is called memes.  Nothing is spared change, which is why I state life is about movement.  Essential to movement is balance and essential to balance is a relationship with ambient.  We are social by design, do set-ups in steps (may be unconscious) to accomplish an improvement in our relationship to our perception of value and accept most shared assignments to expedite this process.

The shared assignments in this illusion produce a relationship that we call reality.  With all the space around the unique point we allude to as self secured in titles or structure, we may begin to explore the interiority of that point of self.  How long did it take us humans, or better, how much movement did it take to arrive?  Being here now and looking inside is called trust.  Most humans are still in movement with anger, confusion, frustration and every other version of misdirected energy we call illness.  We have used that created tool of language to generate stories about all the above and they help some.  If you can generate an image, an exact but size-reduced model of the whole vision above and entertain it within a range of attention, with this trust, you could say you understand.  Life is simple—one image and lots of movement.



How to Create and Limit

April 29th, 2018

We know that science is based on objectified, predictable and consistent ideas.  This becomes part of what we term structure or rules; the “truth” for now.  Did you know that the speed of light, force of gravity and most of those other ideas of “truth” in fact vary regularly?  The consistency of these ideas is an assignment.  Someone is assigned the power to set a standard.   To explore this process of assigning and how it changes over time we need a model or a story.

By design we attend to what has our attention now and need to lay out the progression of events in a narrative for anything that develops over time.  I imagine that several individuals had entertained the vision for television.  Yes, it started with imagination and someone may have gained credit because they were the first to write about it in a science paper, the first to build a working model, the first to design a prototype for manufacturing, and even the first to place it in production.  Inventors and designers may hold patents.  Manufacturers put their name on the product.  If a retail store buys some inventory they own the merchandise.  If you go to the store and buy a new TV you will own the device.  When it wears out (all objects have entropy) the county landfill will gain ownership.

Creation or imagination is always the first step but a close second is the power to make assignments.  Giant step here, when you exercise that power of assignment you limit the target and start the clock of decay.  This is the human checks and balance system.  Imagination gives you the range, everything that you can be aware of now, to sort through and make a decision.  If too much data for only one range it will push you to threshold—deer in the head-light experience.  The human default is to make up a story and reduce the event to a “tall tale” to share and inspire reactions from others.  The objectified story about a large or complex image is a report; past, done and  fades your chance to create now.  You can assign that event as done without any action and use the story to justify.  If you create a model, same image but scaled down and internalized, you still hold all the wholeness of the data and you may make a quick decision and act.  Both are in fact assignments but the model allows for creation now, a decision and done, whereas the secured story places the event into an opportunity missed.  Illusions and timing are very important.  Remember, life is movement and balance.  A quick intuitive hit is a reaction to familiar and not a decision.  Attend longer to an event and allow for more detail to generate a model and then decide.  Remember, you only need to develop a model when the range of what you are aware of in an event is too large for one image.  The secret is that a representation for something large or complex (external) is secured internal at a location and kinesthetic.  Dreams are models of possible chaotic events and internal.


Wellness Code Webinar Invitation

April 24th, 2018

The aim for “Surviving the Cultural Changes” webinar was to make you aware that a storm is coming and wise to secure structure.  Examine your range of safe options and move to weather the storm.  Unfortunately the storm has landed; as you can tell from the news.  Loss of middle income jobs, global warming, out-of-control violence reactions to this change, and general denial instead of a plan.  The way we humans determine value will change and on all levels.  What I refer to as spiritual work is setting aside time in meditation (reflection) to discover options in personal potential and set-up (action plan) life to explore these options in real demonstration.  I recommend you become that new person that embraces the change and not someone lost in reaction or not prepared.  Over the last year I have shared with you some tools and concepts to aid with set-up for discovery of that new you.  Please e-mail me if you need assistance implementing.

The path to meaning is changing and without meaning we humans don’t tend to survive—the devastation appears as the very nature of relationships crumble.  We see that all the time with folks at threshold from losing their jobs, getting divorced, failing to hold emotional balance or just lost in reaction (nature of addictions).  What I have observed from years of counseling is that most people get ill when they are forced past their imposed threshold.  The old way is the safe way, even if it doesn’t work, and a different way appears threatening.  Research reveals that most people that do survive abandon those old values, rules, ideas and build new external structure (how to) and internal mapping (why).  We discovered in our Modern Meme that just change alone is not sufficient.  The folks that recover from these types of crisis offer their story and time in service to caution others.  Meaning is in relationships with others and ourselves.  A healthy person has a healthy relationship between who they believe they are, how they act in demonstration, and their set-up for people to relate back to them.

I teach and believe that you don’t need to become a victim to embrace change.  I developed a program to support a change to a healthier life—style and have been facilitating it and monitoring the results.  We don’t need to become sick to seek wellness.  Over the next twelve months I will facilitate a one hour a month training webinar on this topic and a week after you receive each monthly link for viewing we will have an evening open online chat secession for questions.  Of course, you don’t have to join in the chats to get the links and I will continue to personally answer an emailed question about training content and how you are processing it.  The cost is only $100 for the entire “Wellness Code” webinar which you can post on PayPal (link on side bar of my website) or send me a check.  The follow-up chats will be at 6:00 PM PST and the proposed schedule for this year: May 15, June 12, July 17, Aug. 14, Sept. 4, Oct. 16, Nov. 13, Dec. 11.  Reminder notices will be sent each month with the training links.

Mom’s Chicken Soup

March 29th, 2018

Do you remember when doctors bled patients?  They still like to remove any “corrupted” components and that in itself is not a bad idea.  Healing is still just magic.  Science and doctors today are attempting to set patients up for healing to happen (until the patient runs out of funding).  Explaining to patients in more common terms about the details and choices to repair damage and direct folks back on a track toward healing is an improvement.  Progress and the renewing of a relationship that got lost for a few years in “newer, wiser, faster, and more expensive procedures.”

I think that is why I like neuroscience.  Everyone learning something new takes the edge away from the expert.  The desired outcome, of course, is to prove that consciousness and everything else yet undefined is somewhere in that gray matter.  Are we relying on univariate correlations in data to find causation?  Univariate correlations are drawn when you make a conclusion based on only one variable.  Are we forcing all of our scientists into becoming philosophers?

What we make up, imagine, is the structure of magic.  We may inspire, support and direct imagination with better internal maps to generate mental models closer to and more in alignment with real events—but it is still an internal model of what is perceived.  Magic, “will” and even healing are subjective topics; not objective “things” for science to dissect and lay out in divination for insurance payment.  I’m not anti-medicine, anti-medical nor anti-information;  I’m just at threshold in how to pay for health care and how to get back to finding the “art of healing.”

Do you remember Mom’s chicken soup; or at least the story of it?  The tonic to cure all illness at best and the feeling of starting to recover at least.  The soup had some effect, of course, but the power was in Mom’s attention to your impaired state of being.  That attention to the possibility that you will feel better is the magic of the healing art.  Mom’s assertion, can you imagine being well, do you remember waking up feeling good every morning and are you in the habit of being an active healthy person?  Today Mom would be in big trouble for not warning you that there is not scientific evidence that soup may cure a cold or anything else and that there may be a big risk to your health in consuming the large amount of salt that is in that soup.  Not revealing all this to you I’m sure is a violation to HIPPA Law.  “Eat your soup and you will feel better” is now a crime.

I have a vision for six once-a-month one hour webinars to start in July.  The intention is to initiate a conversation about the possibility of some form of alternate healing therapy that would be appropriate for the growing post-modern population.  Any concepts with a history or a polarity (right-wrong) is out along with the mere fact that the therapy works.  The first is too Traditional meme and the second scores in the overachieving Modern meme.  Please e-mail me your thoughts.  Can we imagine something new—time for soup.




Post-modern inspiration

February 28th, 2018

Have you heard folks say that kids today seem to be born with a computer “instinct”?  Yes, proud parents of every generation relate how unbelievably smart their children are.  Testing doesn’t support claims for being more academically or IQ level advanced and “smarter” feels more like they just get life demands today a little easier.  That all goes south in the early teens when those once smart children are now out or in searching for meaning and value.  True magic when we can hope (will) that our children get the essentials of life quicker than we did and “poof” they do—when young.  Today, thirteen plus years later even the enlightened model you wished for them is now outdated and the transformation model to becoming a young adult is antiquated.

In the traditional human paradigm, elders who over time mastered the traditional model became mentors for the young adults to guide in searching out meaning and value for them to create a life separate from family but still of the culture.  We can still read books (perhaps now fiction) about the old traditional magic and wisdom of alchemists and wizards.  This old magic still produces profound results for neophytes in any space void of present-time complexity.  It all worked great until it didn’t—welcome to the modern paradigm.  The new rule is “better, faster, more efficient, and complex.”  The old traditional ways became “stupid, useless or just outdated.”  As Telhard de Chardin stated in his law of complexity; “Increasing complexity of form is correlated with increasing interior consciousness.”  That means we needed to make the external structure (all those symbols outside of you) complex to spawn attention internal to develop internal consciousness (levels, gradients, scales, discernments that are authentic for a developing self).  This will all work itself out in a few hundred years and I can’t begin to imagine what the content of  a conversation would be in 2200.  If I can’t imagine it I therefore have no statement of will to effect, less yet create that outcome.

Magic was never about knowing; it only requires imagination and will.  Imagination is a range and, like all ranges, supported, developed and expanded by discovery and attention.  Read a book by a post-modern author, volunteer some time with a youth group, have endless conversations with friends about new ideas and values today, and most important, be present in each of these processes.  Building range I believe is the first step to discover what sits just outside the edge of your present-time human range.  We humans are great magicians and what we all need is inspiration to imagine.  I think the greatest need for a better imagined outcome for humans today is in wellness.  My last year’s webinar was about building range and securing it.  This year I will do another webinar on wellness and how to secure that state of being.  Watch for the inspiration this May.
