Intuitive Chocolate Chip Cookies

chocolate chip cookies

Don’t those look yummy! I have mine with a really good espresso or strong dark coffee. Here’s my Grandma’s recipe.

1 cup of “Oleo” (It’s margarine but she called it butter. I use real butter)

1/2 cup of sugar

1/2 cup of brown sugar

2 eggs

1 tsp. soda

1 tsp. salt

1 tsp. vanilla

2 cups flour

1 bag of chocolate chips.

Baking and cooking are chemistry, so women have been navigating science in the home for as long as the species has been around. Almost everything we’ve done in keeping the nest is science and multitasking. Nor did we need a 3D printer or AI (Artificial Intelligence) to pretend like we could copy life. We make life automatically in our bodies. We really do need to take credit for how we kick it in so many ways.

Speaking for myself, as a young, fertile, horny woman, the main reason I didn’t take credit, is that I knew that if I was a threat to a man, better at something or smarter than him, I’d never have sex again. If you’re too competent, too articulate, too assertive, and have too high of an IQ and are cute, you won’t have much sex because you’re too hard to please. Last I checked, guys hate that the most. I can’t tell you how many women and gay men warned me about that. Women want sex (and babies) more than anything in the world and that’s what the men are for. Let’s admit it.

Why wouldn’t we admit that? Slut-shaming? Meaning the assumption is that a woman who admits that her body is on automatic pilot for sex is also a slut. That’s absolutely not true. Not if she picks a partner she is compatible with and has at it instead of with a hundred men which was the situation in matriarchy.

During matriarchy, women, and children lived together and the men just came in for a conjugal visit and left. Thus, they are hardwired to be with as many, and as much of a variety of women as possible following their old brain. There is nothing new about the hook-up. That’s how the dominant women wanted it! That era is over and was bad for everybody; women, children, and especially men. The children never knew their fathers! That’s matriarchy’s theme. It’s still hanging around in some cultures today.

Thus, the ascendancy of patriarchy so the men could live with a woman and gain very valuable human communication skills and learn how to love through having his own child. That benefits the child as well and helps the human brain form in a different way. Children need to know their father. We’re still working on that and it’s coming along.

Back to the cookies, men have picked up all of women’s natural science skills too and gained on it! Many men are creative chefs, are in the kitchen and love to cook and bake. I’m happy about that as I really don’t enjoy being in the kitchen anymore. And for ambitious, impatient women, sometimes the male partner makes a better parent. He’s more entertaining and more patient with his child while mom goes out and leads. That’s pretty common now too, even though her pay is 25% less than a male who does the same job, just because she’s a woman. Sexism is alive and well when it comes to money.

But it isn’t all just Mom baking cookies anymore and that’s a good thing.

Bi-Gender Intuition

I believe that, even though women have a biological brain preponderance of intuition, plenty of men do too.  Plenty of women are naturally good at STEM;(science, technology, engineering, math).  I loved my chemistry set when I was eight. Most men are not as naturally tuned into their bodies as women are.  Again, this is not to disparage, it’s evolution.

I want peace, not gender war.

My wish is simple; that women do not expect men to be like women and that men do not expect women to be like men.  We are who we are and sometimes it’s a benefit for us to partner and live together, given enough space…sometimes.

The Science of Intuition

“We thrive in a culture that believes rationality and prevailing scientifically proven logic rules over the knee jerk reaction to pull out of the parking lot or investigate a partner’s alibi. There are just certain feelings humans obligatorily follow without concrete reasoning.”-Samantha Olson  

Here is the article.  It’s short.

Intuition is Far More Than You Realize

Our subconscious mind is formed predominantly by our mothers in utero and then the environment of family and friends until we’re about seven.  We have no personal control over this nor can we change it as we become adults!  Do you know what your mother was going through or how she felt while you were in her?  This is where the rubber meets the road folks and you’d do well to ponder it or at least find out if you can talk to her.

On the flip side, the word intuition is based on the word “intuition” or “consideration,” formed by a collection of beliefs, experiences, and memories. The intuitive system is more hardwired into the human species than commonly understood. It is the automatic, mindless thought process that doesn’t require analysis or deep thinking.”

I agree with everything Samantha says here except the last sentence.  I pushed my mother’s voice and family voice to the back of my mind starting when I was nineteen, so I’ve been forming and living from my conscious mind for thirty-five years.  The conscious mind is called the “new brain”.  I’m now fifty-four so I’m used to living on the leading edge.  The intuition is not mindless.  I think the instinct is mindless, which is our ancient, animal instinct.  Real intuition comes from the conscious mind.  Instinct comes from 300,000 years of programming from the environment of our subconscious mind.  We’ve survived, so it has served us well.

 “When humans are forced or denied certain feelings during their prime stages of mental, physical, and above all emotional growth, guts can be faulty.”

This one really does rely on thinking back on your mother, her personality, how open she was, how free you were to express yourself.  My sisters and I were very free to express ourselves but my mother was almost always unhappy so none of us have a very solid sense of emotional security.  What is your memory?  It can help you unravel your relationship patterns to remember.  I was not denied any of my feelings in my very early stages. For that I’m grateful. The extreme restriction from my mother hit when I became a teenager and I don’t know why.  At that point, she absolutely tried to live her identity through me.  It’s only abated a little bit now that I’m in my fifties.  I believe many mothers and parents do this to their children.  I discuss it in my new book “Healer” which you can find in the menu on my home page.  There is no rhetoric in my writing. You may find it refreshing.

“Women, on the other hand, may have a stronger ability to make a successful intuitive decision because of their exceptional skills in reading other humans. Female ancestors needed to evaluate a situation quickly in order to tune in to their infant and their environment for protection and survival. Their brains were trained with peak awareness because they were protecting a heart outside of their own bodies. Female brains, therefore, evolved to have a larger composition and ability to organize chunks of environmental information at a time, giving them an edge to read people. So ladies, trust your gut.” 

There is this, right?  Women’s intuition, especially regarding the body really does rival males.  It’s an evolutionary development.  I believe men can be encouraged to be empowered in their body awareness though too as we move into the conscious mind, or the “new brain”.

We are in new territory in this cultural paradigm shift, using a new part of our brain that we have not used previously.  The archetypes from the Tzolkin Cosmology, The Tarot, Jungian, our larger media culture (TV and movies), and Nature will all be morphing as we form a new way of relating to each other.  I’ll keep my eye on it right here.

Ph.D Work at Yale Validating Intuition

Joy Hirsch, Ph.D. neuroscientist at Yale University has scientifically studied intuition.

“…scientists who study the phenomenon say it’s a very real ability that can be identified in lab experiments and visualized on brain scans. Read the article below to verify findings regarding your gut feelings, plus surprising ways to tune in to your body’s signals and tap the inner powers of your mind.”

And please check your gender bias at the door just because it’s a female Ph.D.

Here is the article;  Science backing intuition

Here is another one that is a little more white coat, cold hard laboratory stuff that some people think is transcendent.  Here is the “Significance”;

Significance

The role of intuition versus deliberation in human cooperation has received widespread attention from experimentalists across the behavioral sciences in recent years. Yet a formal theoretical framework for addressing this question has been absent. Here, we introduce an evolutionary game-theoretic model of dual-process agents playing prisoner’s dilemma games. We find that, across many types of environments, evolution only ever favors agents who (i) always intuitively defect, or (ii) are intuitively predisposed to cooperate but who, when deliberating, switch to defection if it is in their self-interest to do so. Our model offers a clear explanation for why we should expect deliberation to promote selfishness rather than cooperation and unifies apparently contradictory empirical results regarding intuition and cooperation.

Here is the abstract.

The Paperback of “Healer” is Printed and Available for Sale on Amazon along with the Kindle E-book.

Healers heal themselves, they don’t heal others. We can share our work with others though so they can be about taking care of themselves also. Healers are authentic, living examples of how you can step out of your subconscious imprinting from parents, family, and provincial upbringing to create your conscious mind and live a truly free life of your choosing. We also know how to access the information in our unconscious mind through the dream state. The unconscious mind transcends intellect, brings forward intuition and allows it to MANIFEST in physical! The information in the dream state, where there is no thinking, is available to everyone.

Book Review for “The Lost Symbol” by Dan Brown

(The Lost Symbol came out in 2009, but I found some issues to be pertinent today in this book review I wrote that year)

The previous 2 books that I’ve read by Dan Brown; “Angels & Demons” and “Da Vinci Code” were quite riveting and fast reads, but “The Lost Symbol” rivaled them.  In addition, Brown chose to write chapter after chapter as a type of sound-bite; a quickly changing scene to keep the attention of the reader.  That was very clever and it worked! The trade-off was character and scene development.  Even though we all know Langdon from the other books, people do grow and evolve.

Yet he portrayed Langdon very 2 dimensional and much the same. I got the sense he was really tired of this character and it showed in the writing.  This was by no means a visionary work, but it was revealing and fun to read.  Inquiring minds want to know!  When you open the book, read the fiction disclaimer and then read the FACT page.

There was an advantage of the setting being on home turf; Washington D.C.  As Americans, the revelation of the inner workings of our government is personal.  Indeed, many of our family members are Masons.  Many of our towns have “Masonic meeting halls”.  In my hometown, there was a “Masonic Temple”.  As a child I was taken by my Mother and Grandmother to many a community concert.  But chapter 82, page 304 was especially personal for me.

At the opening of the chapter was the 10,647 rank organ that my cousin, Wayne Dirksen played and built as Music Director for The Washington National Cathedral in real life.  His father founded the Freeport Organ Co. and taught him.  Wayne was the music presenter for the Cathedral.  Then as the characters proceeded into the Cathedral kitchen to reveal a very telling clue about “the pyramid”, I thought, “I wonder how many church suppers my relatives had in this hall and never imagined it would be the setting for revealing part of the secret about The Masons in a best-selling book?”  When you read the section, you may hear the church women forever making jokes about cooking something in the big pots that might rival a secret Masonic Pyramid-hold the carrot!  I don’t want to be a spoiler, so you’ll have to read the book to see what I’m talking about.  The point is, the Washington National Cathedral is a Masonic stronghold-including the altar of the church, and my family has roots there.

What strikes me after having read these three books is in “Angels and Demons”, Brown deals with the secrets of The Illuminati and the Catholic Church.  In “DaVinci Code” the antagonist power structure is The Catholic Church and finally, in “The Lost Symbol”-he deals with the secrets of The Masons, but they are protagonists and Protestant.  What do all of these institutions have in common?  They are male dominated with exclusive male membership.  Albeit, DaVinci Code “suggested” the existence of the sacred feminine, but what conclusive power did she have?  There was no real proof of her role.

For all the puzzle jumbling, blood, violence, and torture, there has never been a bigger scandal since the time of Christ than the absolute power vacuum of women in institutions of spiritual power.  There has never been such an insulting, blatant, patronizing lack of comment on the real mystery behind the reason for male dominance in these institutions.  In fact, the reason Dan Brown even HAS a story to write about, even HAS all these mounds of puzzles and symbols to decipher and secrets to root out is because the female has not been portrayed in the real light she holds in the evolution of spiritual power on this planet!

These books lean heavily on the “sacrifice model” to tell the story.  That is because they leave the female out. The Bible completely leaves the female out as an equal to the male.  And the Apostle Paul and Thomas Aquinas have a heyday denigrating her.  That being said, the reason the Catholics can continue to hold power in the world is because their focus remains on the person of Christ and the transforming power of the Holy Spirit, as well as revering Mary.  Yet they are the holdout for ordaining women.

For all the Universal ecumenism propounded by the Masons and some Protestants, what do they have to say about Christ?  Do they think that he was “just another Master” walking the planet or do they really believe, as suggested in the book, that we could each be like him with that level of healing power and love in our hearts? Not if they keep playing their sacrifice rituals over and over as shown in the book!

Love is yielding, not sacrifice.  It is the love that causes one to yield in order to teach a lesson, to further the cause, rather than resist; not sacrifice.  The concept of sacrifice is violent and male.  His death was not a sacrifice.  The sacrificial focus of all the Pagan religions is over.  Give Jesus some credit.  Most of the time, he did not yield.  Take one look at scripture and you’ll see how he laid into the Pharisees and Sadducees when they were wrong; but not at the end.  He yielded and it was heinous.  It was the most scandalous torture of an innocent man, not just on this planet, but in the Universe.  Will this planet ever live it down?

Maybe that’s why so many humans like to believe the cross is so beautiful and venerate it.  It’s a type of denial to try to cleanse it of what it REALLY was; abysmal.  It seems to me that by venerating it you also approve of the enacting of sacrifice.

Am I questioning Jesus decision to yield; no-of course not.  I do question the efficacy and intent of Christ to interpret it as a sacrifice.  He went knowingly and on purpose.  If it was a sacrifice, he was a martyr.  If he yielded, he was a Rabbi and a lover of humans, come to regain power over our planet and vanquish Lucifer.  He did accomplish that no matter how much Christians want to keep talking about him.  It’s finished!

I am grateful for every single speck of who he was, what he did, and what he said.  But I feel, as a follower, that his teaching should no longer be denigrated by organized religion with its pagan symbols and interpretations, much less sensationalized in books such as Dan Brown’s.  Power goes to the one who yields in love.  That is what Christ did.  Neither the Catholics, nor the Masons, nor the Protestants get it.  The hubris of the Masonic thinking has indeed crept into the Protestant church.  There is a huge misunderstanding here about what Christ actually taught.  And to boot, it’s not being taught by the Catholic or Protestant Church either.

Michelangelo portrays the mystery of this yielding in the astounding “Pieta”.  I’ve stared at that statue quite awhile to receive its deeper meaning.  I’ve thought about all I’ve read in Dan Brown’s books about religion, symbolism, the sacred feminine, antagonist/protagonist, and the real meaning of Christ’s death.

The message I received was the need for “balance”.  There needed to be balance brought to this planet between the male and the female.  As Christ’s body lay dead in the lap of Mary in the Michelangelos Sculpture, “Pieta”, I see him yielding to the sacred feminine, to Mother Spirit, to his Mother Mary in the hopes that with the release of his soul, she would come forth and help him bring balance to this troubled sphere.  Was that his core message?  So once again, the two shall become one.  He yielded his body to her, knowing that SHE was the author of his life, from which all life comes, in conjunction with The Father.  It is the great mystery yet to be unraveled, the great secret yet to be told on Planet Earth, the story that Dan Brown hasn’t told that underpins all spiritual institutions, all symbols, and all religions.  Maybe I’ll have to write a book then.

St. Valentine BeHeaded

Here’s some romance for you…

Today is actually a Catholic Feast day of St. Valentine.

He was a Catholic martyr of course, and as it says below, he was beaten with clubs, beheaded, buried at night in secret, and dug up by his followers.

His crime was voicing his dissent at the Romans because the young men were forbidden to marry young women.  Instead, the Romans made it a priority that young men become soldiers for their wars.  You know, “Make war, not love”, the opposite of what the hippies said in the 60’s.

Well, sex, reproduction, gender balance, honoring nature, loving and taking care of the body, those are women’s values.  The Romans were busy making sure patriarchy, the rule of rich, white men came to the fore.

Working class men became fodder for capitalism, the military-industrial complex, materialism, the draft, and war.  The Romans started it and it continues today in modern society.

If men were to fulfill their role by nature in balance with women they would be taught and allowed to love women, love and care for their own body, value being a father, learn the values of monogamy, not polygamy, and find balance between the work he loved and the family he loved.

That’s all been ripped apart for men and by association, women.

Men are used as much by the system that oppresses them as they oppress women.  The system uses men to keep women down and I doubt the men even know it.

The historical proof of this is in the life of St. Valentine who advocated for Love between women and men and was killed for it by The State.

Patriarchy has brainwashed men into believing that they are not to love women, that women aren’t to be trusted, and their highest destiny is in aligning with the powers of church and state.  The truth is, we’re called and made to love each other.  Roman society killed that.

The birth of misogyny is what Valentine’s Day is really commemorating and it is as Okoto Enigma says, “An apocalypse of Love”.

Women continue to directly suffer for it by lack of loving bond in sex with men, if we’re straight. Also, in not being paid the same amount of money for the same quality of work.  So not only are we deprived physically and emotionally but monetarily as well.

Thanks for trying St. Valentine but the arrow is still stuck in our hearts.
