Internet – The Beast

Feel free to listen, or read (and I’ve edited for correctness using Grammarly):

Let me talk this through for a minute.

Think about the word convergence. And think about big tech and think about what search engines do.

What search engines do is try to solve a problem for whoever searching. So there are 8 billion people on the planet. Maybe half of them are using the internet. So there are 4 billion people asking questions, and you know how you don’t know what you don’t know. Or you often don’t even know what question to ask.

So 4 billion people are asking 4 billion questions on a variety of search engines every day and what’s going on in the background is, that being owned by Microsoft Bill Gates, they’re collecting all of these questions. So servers, computer servers around the world are storing all of this information. As far as the question, you may or may not ever find an answer to your question, but the point is, it’s collecting the questions and it’s collecting them asked in 4 billion different ways, on however many unlimited amounts of topics.

So, in the background, this AI beast if you will, is created by Elon Musk, and Bill Gates, no surprise that they’re the richest men in the world because they got ahead of the curve and understood that the way to control the world and or well with the control comes making money, is to figure out what questions the world has to answer and then they could work on the answer. Or in their case, they built the answer, which was the mechanism involved to collect all of the questions.

The big issue now is that you have people that are white labeling, if you will, say Bing, so I use Ecosia as a search engine because for me, it helps me feel a little bit better about my day. As I’m using the internet search engine to search for to plug my question in and obtain an answer–hopefully.

I’m using Ecosia because it’s a feel-good thing. They’re taking some of their profits and they’re parlaying that money to other organizations that plant trees, it results in planting trees and I don’t have to plant the tree or even spend any money. I’m just searching the internet.

But what am I giving?

I’m giving my intellectual property utilizing performing the search. Just like we give our used clothing and use the items in our house to Goodwill. And then goodwill just organizes them. Maybe they do some cleaning or something I don’t know. Or maybe they test them to see if things work before they either put them out for sale or trash them. I don’t know what their internal processes are. But they do something they handle the gifts that you give them for free and turn them into a resource that they then sell. So they have a tangible property that they turn around and sell well.

So the mechanism or what’s in play with the search engines is that they’re selling ads targeted to your desires, wants, needs, whatever it is you’re asking about. So as you are interested in building a tiny house you’re going to start seeing Tiny House ads as you’re interested in buying an RV or renting an apartment, you’re going to see ads for those that generate revenue. That’s how they make their money.

So the questions that you ask go into this self-fulfilling prophecy, I started to say perpetual motion of machination is machinery in the background that then calculates and then they have programmers that write algorithms to turn that around and feed that back out to you as ads.

Now, on the one hand, one can argue that big tech is offering convenience and you don’t have to use it. And on the other hand, you can see it as the ‘end times beast.’

How do we build a better mousetrap? And yes, I understand the implications that bring the word trap, right in the mousetrap, right, who’s the mouse? We are.

Are we enslaving humanity throughout this process and are we giving our power over by giving the search engines our free intellectual property?

I’ve always been all for that because I’m a blogger and a writer and I put my thoughts innermost thoughts out there and even met my husband, the love of my life, my third husband on the internet. So, you know, I’ve worked in tech for over 35 years and while I’ve probably guessed at the downside, I’m seeing it more and more now. Because after 2018 people were into natural, holistic health remedies, nutrition, alternative and functional and integrative medicine, and even spirituality. A lot of these providers and service people have products and services for sale, their voices were squelched in 2018. Way before the health pandemic occurred. So something’s going on. And the smaller companies are being bought up by the larger ones.

So as my husband always says, big fish eat the little fish and little fish eat littler fish. The image here is my husband’s art and from my his website: http://listen4music.com/ocean%20life/3.html

What’s the end game?

Omniscience knows ALL. Omniscience is always with you. You are never alone.

Cheat sheet: How I wrote and self-published my new book, Blue Eyes: Ethereal Messages of Connection

My new book, Blue Eyes: Ethereal Messages of Connection went LIVE on Amazon (available in paperback and Kindle) as of 11 pm ET New Year’s Eve! Want to know how I wrote and self-published it? I mean, the easy way? And hopefully with less time editing (I am sharing lessons learned for you, AND to remind myself should I write another book)! Ha!

Amazon screenshot showing my new book, Blue Eyes: Ethereal Messages of Connection

I downloaded and used Kindle Create to prepare both the Kindle version of the book and the paperback, and each has their own set of distinct requirements! For example, you will format (layout) each differently. But start with the Kindle ePub version in mind first because you can export from Kindle create to ePub for direct uploading into KDP publishing online through a browser, and you can then export a PDF version to open in Pages on a mac, or other editing software to add page numbers and other desired formatting changes.

But I digress. Here’s a cheat sheet of all I used to write the book (and these steps will help you blog as well, especially if you love using your phone and dictating or “channel”!

  • Download Otter for your phone
  • Speak less than 30 minutes FREE (if you go over 30 minutes you’ll have to pay Otter $12.95 for at least a month to get your entire file!)
  • Export both audio and text files from Otter
  • Email these files or transfer from iPhone directly to MacBook via AirDrop
  • Copy and paste the text from the .txt file into Grammarly. You can use the web version and it’s FREE
  • Listen to the audio file while editing as some words do not transcribe well
  • Follow most of the Grammarly help it provides but if you love fancy ways to write certain words like I do when I write the word, aWEsOMe, you don’t have to accept those changes.
  • Do the Grammarly step before laying out the book into a particular format in Pages, Scrivener, MS Word or such as you’ll lose all the formatting when moving content from that app to Grammarly and back again. I know. It happened to me and it sucked! (I reformatted my Pages paperback version about a dozen times, I lost count that’s for sure! Ugh.)
  • Copy and paste in Scrivener by chapter and section (or WordPress when writing a blog article)
  • Arrange and rearrange chapters and sections easily, see most used words (which is why I bought Scrivener for a one-time fee of $50)
  • If using Pages, MS Word, or other word processing application, copy and paste from Scrivener to it now and save two files: ePub and PDF
  • Download Kindle Create
  • Copy and paste text from Pages, Scrivener, or MS Word file to Kindle Create
  • Export ePub file for the Kindle ebook version and PDF file for the paperback
  • Run the checker on KDP Publishing many times and make every change they suggest but do add page numbers to the paperback version and ensure they show up.
  • Check each image to ensure it shows up in the paperback version too! One of my images didn’t show up (at all) when I got my paperback copies and I realized I could have prevented that had I changed everything to grayscale before placing the images in the paperback version. Kindle version displays all of your content and images in whatever color but the paperback does NOT (only the cover of the paperback is printed in color)!
  • Use the book cover template suggested if you are preparing your own book cover. And don’t leave the spine blank as I did on mine. I knew what a spine was but both my husband and I missed that and we’ll have to fix it at some point. And do bleed the edges on the front and back book covers, Amazon calls the whole thing, “the cover,” which includes front, spine, and back cover of your book. And no, I didn’t know that the first several times I submitted the book cover. Duh!
  • Make final edits to the PDF in Pages, Scrivener, or MS Word, whichever app used to export the submitted PDF if you used multiple apps
  • Order a printed draft of your paperback if you really want to get it right! (SEE NOTE BELOW)
  • Don’t pay for advertising until you know your paperback prints the way it should (UGH)

After reviewing a printed paperback copy of my new book, Blue Eyes: Ethereal Messages of Connection I found where one of the images did NOT show up on the page! Because of that and because no page numbers displayed (the Table of Contents isn’t too helpful when you can’t look by page numbers), I had to update the manuscript again (umpteenth time) and resubmit. I had to do the layout again, in the Pages app on my MacBook Air because when I added the page numbers the layout changed. The cover size changed too because the page length of the book grew!

Here’s where it got hairy and later, very frustrating!

I spent all afternoon today on the manuscript. Yes, AGAIN—7 days after publishing! I even added a few sentences and prettied it up by making sure each chapter started on the right hand page.

I submitted it via KDP Publishing site to Amazon. I had to Preview it again though I didn’t feel I needed to. It would NOT let me resubmit it without clicking on Preview.

When I did that, it told me my cover was the wrong size! It didn’t have a problem with the cover before (that is after I’d already updated THAT several times before initially submitting, but now with more pages the cover needs to be larger—bang my head).

Point is, I spent another hour or two and recruiting hubby to help because the software I use on the MacBook would NOT let me resize a PDF. The more obstacles I ran into the more aggravated I got!

Finally, hubby resized the PDF cover in Photoshop on our desktop iMac to the exact size dimensions the bot had specified on KDP and I got that uploaded. I did chat with Amazon though, in the meanwhile and no, I didn’t take out my frustration on the gal I was chatting with as I know it’s never their fault or problem. It’s software. But I did tell her I wanted to lodge a complaint that the bot should allow the customer, especially on a redo to force the change through.

Please make sure you give yourself the time, space, and grace to do this as it’s certainly not for the faint of heart! I now know why people pay $5k to get a book published. It’s ridiculous. I’ll use the KDP stock cover creator next time. I’m completely over this custom cover thing. Ha!

Here’s the link where you can get either or both versions: https://amzn.to/3WV68KF

I am volunteering as a Correspondence Assistant for Dr. Raymond Moody, author of many great books like, Life After Life, and God is Bigger than the Bible—and I love it so much I want to do this full-time when I retire!

Much Love, Happy New Year, and many blessings to ALL!

Happy New Year 2023!

I sit in amazement at how this blog has grown over the last twelve years or so! To think about when I first started blogging (before it was called that) and then publicly on The Examiner (the one that eventually sold), I am humbled yet proud of my growth. I’m not a prideful person though and rarely use that word because I know ‘pride’ comes before a fall. And I’ve stumbled enough! Ha! Though, yes, I know falling shows we are trying, we are moving forward. Babies fall before they learn to walk for example. Point is, here’s the numbers for SheilaMurrey.net (for Wholly Integrating the Spiral) and I sit in utter GRATITUDE that the numbers are UP 19% over last year !! (These numbers do not include the products and services reviews blog called, Being Wholly Vibrant): And if you’re curious as I was, here are the top 52 posts (many were written prior to 2022 so these numbers aren’t the total views per post, but the number of views during 2022):
The highest number of views on posts were memorial tributes to my two cousins, brothers, whom are family lost this year, which makes me sad on one level, yet I sense in a metaphysical way, they are honored. Any time we give to anyone honors them.
I was so glad to see the posts about my new book, Blue Eyes: Ethereal Messages of Connection, get a lot of views (and comments), as well as transformative posts about Omniscience, Reiki, and more.
Just so you know, I took screen captures direct from my WordPress STATS pages because I didn’t want anyone to think I might cheat on any of the numbers. And while I don’t blog, re-blog, or comment on other bloggers’ posts to simply increase my stats, I do want to gain readers to help educate and uplift others by sharing what I’ve learned. I believe it’s important to know who’s great shoulders upon which we stand and launch from!
I go back and check the stats on prior posts also to use as a guide on what to write future posts about though I do have quite a backlog to get in already, still it helps me choose what’s next! So, your view of these posts influences that–isn’t that FUN??? I’m thrilled to see my post about my work/play in Dr. Bruce Lipton’s online community gaining traction:
And I’m glad to see the cross-shares and re-blogging posts gain momentum as well!
I know in my heart and spirit that We Are All Connected, and each of you have proven it! But, know that we’re not just connected by the internet, but we are in a very real sense, connected by the unseen mysterious threads that make up the Universe. Whether it be by vibration, frequency, energy, love, thought, or something else unseen. Watch and listen more about this here:
We may even be related by blood! My heritage / lineage is primarily English (from Wales – I am a Williams from my father’s side but my grandfather’s last name on my mother’s side was Withee), Irish, Dutch, German, and Native American Indian (Cherokee tribe – my grandmother’s maiden name was Calhoun). I am alway interested in learning from you all, just how we are connected. It feels really good to me to think of all of the people, from all of the following countries, who somehow found my blogs and books and took some time to read some or ALL. Many Blessings to you all in ALL ways. Peace. Love. And remember, Everything Resolves to Gratitude. Namaste. OM I would like to thank each person, each reader from the depths of me! I would love to introduce you to the Resonance Academy! If you’re interested in Frequency, science, or just how everything is connected in the Universe, I think you’ll want to join the academy with me! Ready, set, click here! And if you would love to play with me in the Dr. Bruce Lipton sandbox, please join us for $7 a month (or less if you pay for the year): https://www.brucelipton.com/join-bruce-lipton-community-for-conscious-evolution/

Mine your MIND

Why do we always say something is ‘mine’?

Why do we have to own anything or attach for that matter? Why must anything be ours, or BELONG to us? He or she who has the most toys doesn’t win. That’s just a way to keep us moving closer to the proverbial carrot. Finding joy in the journey is ALL you have. As the elusive butterfly teaches us, it is always moving, dancing, fleeting.

I don’t even have to attach to ME! I’m not my name. I’m not my body. I’m nothing in particular in fact, but I Am. I am here. I exist. Why?

There’s another way to define the word, ‘mine’

To walk the path of the shaman, we must dig in the dirt of ourselves and mine our mind. We must break out of our programming and truthfully examine our conditioning.

I’m here to challenge you to dig deeper. Honor your past. Honor your ancestors. You are not here by accident. You didn’t pop out of a pod. A woman gave birth to you. And a woman gave birth to her. And so on, and so on. And a man was involved in some way too. The two became one. YOU!

ALL of your ancestors who came before, honor YOU! You stand on their great shoulders. Do you accept the responsibility of their sacrifices? Of their LOVE?

Know this though, when you dig through one layer, you’ll find another. When you escape or break out of one box, you’ll find another.

Open the box. We find another. It's dimensional.

Balance isn’t the point though. Remember the wavy line that separates the black from the white in the yin and yang symbol. It’s wavy because it’s always Balancing. Flowing. Never done.

Life endures. And continues.

Creation never ceases

We are each a bright shining fractal of Ever-Living, LIMITLESS Source Energy! Creation never ceases!

When we examine things in terms of degrees, layers, and doses, Truths will emerge. There’s not only one Truth, there are multiple Truths. There are Universal Laws. And the greatest of these is Love. But can all creation love? This is where we spiral back to programming and conditioning.

At my best, when I am aware of my programming and conditioning and desire to rise above it, I am love-and-in my spirit and heart: I love unconditionally–that means without conditions, such as: I don’t care how much money you have or don’t have. I don’t care what ancestry you have, what skin tone, what ailments, what religion-or not, and certainly not what gender or sexual orientation you are-think you are or want to be!

Underneath the outer layer of our skin, we are all pink! Our blood is blue until exposed to oxygen and then, it’s red!

Because We Are ALL Connected. Because I believe each of us matter. I believe each voice matters even if, in the moment, it seems hurtful. I can then choose to make a different choice. And full circle time, I will own my choices. ❤️🦋🌀〰️

I want you to speak your truth. I want you to be FREE. Yell FIRE in a theater, IF it’s on freaking FIRE!

❤️🦋🌀〰️

Dental high jinks

I’ve really been through it the past few years when it comes to visiting dentists and oral surgeons. For some background, here’s a list of my previous posts:

The Good-gums article was also reblogged on the Good-Gums website (and I was so honored)!

However, my relationship with this particular dentist was short-lived as she told me my tongue was too big for my mouth, and that it would cost $6,000 to fix what all was wrong with my teeth (and my husband threw a fit when I told him how she’d spoken to me and how much she wanted to charge me).

She had rushed me through all of her diagnostic tests, and even told ME to calm down because I affected HER Energy! (If she was really a holistic dentist SHE would have control over her own Energy and would not have put that upon me. I was appalled the more I thought about that. I never went back. Nor would I expend any Energy to explain my choice not to return to her.

I put those posts on my Being Wholly Vibrant site as most were product or service reviews. But I plan to wrap up that site soon and move the best posts here, to SheilaMurrey.net – as I pay WordPress for it and the other site is a free site with ads I have no control over. I’d started Being Wholly Vibrant as a test and now, it has over 130 posts on it. But I digress.

I really don’t want to tell medical professionals how to do their jobs, but I am having an issue with dentists.

Apparently, many doctors and dentists file insurance claims for their patients and when the funds come in they put them in their account. If you owe a balance they are right on it to send YOU a bill, but what happens when they owe YOU??? I’ll tell you, nothing happens! They can keep your money indefinitely!

I’ve written to the Florida State Attorney’s General office about an unscrupulous dental office in St. Pete Beach, Florida after I found out they were holding $1150. on account (of my money) for over a YEAR! Here’s what the AG’s office told me:

Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody received your correspondence regarding Dental Arts in Saint Pete Beach. Attorney General Moody asked that I respond.

Florida Attorney General’s Office

I did call Morgan and Morgan’s office over this matter but the dollar amount wasn’t high enough for anyone there to care about it. I guess they really aren’t “for the people” as they claim to be in their commercials. I also turned in this dental office to the Florida Dental Association, though I never heard back from them.

I have reached out to the Florida Bar offers a Lawyer Referral Service to see what they suggest.

And since I’m now over 60, I’ve reached out to the Florida Senior Legal Helpline.

I so appreciate this information from the Attorney General Moody’s office and am continuing to learn how I can work to educate myself and others when it comes to this egregious financial wrong doing by these people.

It just sucks that I spent all that money on the crown and it has bothered me for more than a year (plus, though numb during that work, it hurt very badly and I told them but they continued working on it). Lesson learned. I should have got up and walked out. Plus, they still owe me $1,150 that’s a credit on my account! (And yes, I have exhausted all of the various means of trying to force them to pay me but nothing has worked yet!)

As for the silver lining, I’ve found a wonderful oral surgeon across the street from where we live, who took me in within a few days and only charged me $50 out of pocket to extract one of the molars which the dentist in St. Pete Beach, not only left IN my mouth when it should have been pulled during that visit, but he put a crown on top of it, and even through all of the numbing, it hurt extremely bad while they were doing that process. I should have gotten up out of the dentist chair and left their office, but I simply told them it hurt and they kept on working on it, saying it had to be done and “knew it hurt.”

I will no longer give anyone power over me like that again.

Good and Bad are LABELS

Why do we always label things good or bad?

Why do we judge so much, or at all? What a waste of time and energy. (Unless you’re a judge or sitting in a jury box, don’t each of us have enough to do without all the judging and condemning of our bother and sister humans?

Don’t we each have enough to do everyday to take care of what’s real?

Light and dark, hot and cold, wet and dry. These aspects of reality are real.

In traditions dating back millennia, the dark, wet/moist, and cool aspects were associated with the feminine. and light, heat, and dry aligned with the masculine. This is why the earth was said to be our mother and the sun our father. The dark soil of the earth accepts the light of the sun and nurtures plant life to grow.

We don’t say the earth is bad and the sun is good. Sometimes too much sunlight can burn our skin (so that could be bad). And when something is extremely cold it can feel hot, or if something is extremely hot it can feel cold. So, again, our senses can be fooled. Definitely calling something good or bad can vary depending on who’s judging what.

Let’s, for now, consider issues we view as bad, to simply be INFORMATION. Yes, even criminals. At some point we have to take a good hard look at our innards, shadow, guts, and admit that in some way, no matter how small or seemingly insignificant, we ourselves have been the criminal, even if only in our thoughts!

To walk the path of the shaman, we must dig in the dirt of ourselves and lift up the dark to clear it. Indeed, to heal ourselves.

Terence McKenna quote

Why do people need some threat (police, judge, jury, prison, or damnation), held over their heads to inspire or coerce them to live a righteous life? Why do we need a supreme Diety or Divine to live rightly?

Are we innately good? Kind? Obviously we get it if someone is hurt, abandoned, or abused they might consequently hurt other people (the whole “hurt people, hurt people” thing). But not everyone abuses others because they were abused. It is more than likely that when we’re hurt we fall out of alignment with our true selves, our Divinely guided inner being.

Some of us simply walk uprightly because it feels so good to do so! We tell the truth because it feels good (and we can’t sleep at night if we don’t).

So, I’m here to challenge and call out the whole idea of good vs. evil. The yin and yang tradition doesn’t specify a preference between them, yin is not bad while yang is good for instance. In the Asian wisdom traditions it’s all a question of Balance. Keeping things on an even keel. Working towards the middle. Staying neutral. When I practice Reiki, I am a neutral channel of pure loving Reiki Energy.

But Balance isn’t strived for in the good/evil traditions.

Let’s do this little exercise, as suggested by Nick Polizzi of the Sacred Science — here’s a link but watch it quickly as I don’t know how long it will be available: https://inneralchemy.thesacredscience.com/day-3-ist/

Write for 3 minutes of a recent “bad” situation that you’ve experienced. Not what someone else experienced as that’s none of your business.

Then write it again but use the terms light/dark or yin/yang to reframe and describe the situation to see how much emotional, spiritual, intellectual we can stretch, open, expand and change our language around the experience. This assumes it was our experience and not someone else’s we have no business in viewing/judging.

What have you learned? What new awareness has surfaced? Do you feel a bit lighter after reframing the situation and releasing the need to write bad/good judgements in the story?

For your upliftment

I hope so! Because the aim of this work is to uplift you.

We are each a bright shining fractal of Ever-Living, LIMITLESS Source Energy! Creation never ceases!

I am love-and-in my spirit and heart: I love unconditionally–that means without conditions, such as: I don’t care how much money you have or don’t have. I don’t care what ancestry you have, what skin tone, what ailments, what religion-or not, and certainly not what gender or sexual orientation you are-think you are or want to be!

Underneath the outer layer of our skin, we are all pink! Our blood is blue until exposed to oxygen and then, it’s red!

I think we care about each other because we are human. We are ALL human beings. I don’t want to exclude ANYONE. I want to be known for Inclusivity.

Because We Are ALL Connected. Because I believe each of us matter. I believe each of our voices matter. ❤️🦋🌀〰️

And, yes, I want you to yell FIRE in a theater, IF it’s on freaking FIRE!

Speaking your truth is healing!

No labels

I am all for NO LABELS!

I could care less what people do (or with whom) in the privacy of their homes, cars, RVs, motel rooms, tents, bathrooms, etc. and I don’t even mind public reasonable shows of affection (it doesn’t have to be vulgar—yes I know I am still judging). And between consenting adults, please. (My mind cannot abide with people taking advantage of children—see my previous post about that.)

Yes, I accept all for who they are. (But I don’t have to live with them.) I have had way too many experiences on different levels than to judge—more than I just did.

❤️🦋🌀〰️

Why can’t we ALL just get along? (Or, I love you, but – part 2)

Dysfunctional families

As I ponder why some siblings don’t get along or even become estranged from one another, or why mothers and daughters can disagree and seem at odds with one another (all while feeling love for each other), it occurs to me it’s because though each love one another, or say we do, we are half the other parents DNA. And in the case of the mother and daughter, if the mother doesn’t get along with the father of course the same would hold true she would disagree with the daughter who is half the father’s DNA, attitudes, and such. It’s only logical. Siblings aren’t just 50 percent their mother’s DNA and 50 percent their father’s DNA either—each could be 49 percent of one and 51 percent the other, or some other mathematical percentage.

Too many times we get in our Ego when we could take a breath and simply be grateful we have people who love us in our lives!

I love you, but

I love you, but I am my own unique essence.
I love you, but I have been programmed and conditioned, however slightly, different than you.
I love you, but the lens by which I view life differs from the filter you look through.
I love you, but I have different needs than you.
I love you, but I got different amounts of our parent’s DNA, flaws, foibles, etc even though we are siblings.
I love you, but we each experience life differently each moment, each day!

Healing

I hope this helps anyone estranged from a sibling or a parent and teen who are having trouble communicating. Life is short. Don’t lose sight of what’s important. Nothing matters except the people who love you and whom you love.

Next time your parent or family member challenges you, ask yourself, “Is my ego hurt, or my soul?” I bet it’s your ego. And actually a lot of psychological analysts think ego is an illusion! So, you’re letting an illusion separate you from someone who really loves you but simply sees the world differently than you!

Where’s the love?

My sister, Christina, who lived less than one day in 1963, wouldn’t let me sleep last night until I wrote this article. She visits me in the ethereal and is who I wrote my new book about (which will launch soon).
