Get Your Tinfoil Hat

The Ænigma Project – Mondays 9 PM EST

The Ænigma Project is a discussion group focused on the realm of the supernatural, paranormal and mysterious events that sometimes take place in our lives. Through multiple view points and experiences, we seek to enlighten our listeners and elucidate that which has become hidden beneath the many layers of misunderstanding and fear.

Join Paul Cagle and his co-hosts Sushi and Springwolf as we share our research, knowledge, insight and humor. Be part of the Ænigmite Crew and play “Truth or Tale”. And add your opinion or thoughts as we discuss the strange or paranormal news of the day.

You can join in the chat room to share your perspective or ask questions for the panel to contemplate and address. Or simply listen to the show LIVE!

12/23 Our Topic: Who Is Santa
Who was the real Santa Claus?  Is he based on one man or an amalgamation of men throughout history? Is he from the Norse, Celtic, Greek, Roman or Christian legends? Why does he wear red? Or should he be dressed in green?  Does he have a dark alter ego? And why does he live in the North Pole anyway? 

You can join in the chat room to share your perspective or ask questions for the panel to contemplate and address. If you don’t want to join the chat, you can still listen live on your pc or Smartphone. Pick your favorite place and come listen to the show: 

There are many other ways you can listen on the go, at home, at work or in your car. Check out Tenacity’s “Hear Us On” technical page for more options.

Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: King of Swords

 

King of Swords

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

Don’t be afraid to show your strength of heart and compassion. Simply because others don’t agree with your views and you’re surrounded by opponents don’t “pretend” to fit in. The King rules over his domain without needing approval from others to set his policy and act upon his own beliefs. It’s ok for others to have different views and to hold different and even inaccurate reasons for their views. You don’t want others tell you what to think, don’t tell them what they have to think. But please, Do think for yourself!


Additional Insight:

Even though others are relying on old perspectives, ill-informed information, or unreliable sources to form their opinions; that doesn’t mean you have to. You have as much right to think for yourself and form your own view as anyone else. Don’t be afraid to allow your compassion to shine.

Make sure you review situations before you get involved in their arguments however. Don’t simply jump in and wage a battle that doesn’t need to be fought. Some are impossible to budge and you’ll have better luck arguing with a stone. Know when to speak up and when to simply walk away. Discernment is a key characteristic of any King..or Queen.

Take time to research your position and study your opponent’s position before you engage in debate. Knowing your enemy better than they know themselves is the best weapon you can have to end their attack. Those you maybe going up against aren’t as educated as they make themselves out to be. Blind faith isn’t a strong position to fight from.

But remember you don’t have to be cruel, angry or emotional to win a debate. It’s not the person who yells the loudest or gets the most angry that wins. It’s the one who lives by their principles and becomes a shining example of their position with compassion, calmness and doesn’t take attacks from others as bait. Don’t allow them to control your reactions or your arguments in the discussion. Facts will always out weigh emotional diatribes every time.

This is our last daily tarot meditation drawing for 2013. We hope everyone has a wonderful, happy and peaceful holiday season. Many Blessings and Happy New Year! We’ll be back on January 6th 2014.

graduating wolfTake Pride In Your Accomplishments

In 2008 I took on a personal quest to satisfy a desire for personal validation. I had decades of knowledge and experience in my spiritual path, but some how I felt that I didn’t have the right to call myself a teacher or spiritual minister. This was simply something I felt was lacking within my own confidence.

I was serious about my mission and what I wanted to accomplish with my teachings. I was often praised for my classes and lectures, consultations, healing and helping others. But those compliments didn’t satisfy my own inner perspective of my, let’s call it authority for lack of a better word. I did my research of universities, colleges, cost of enrollment and which programs would support my pagan beliefs and focus on the foundation of those beliefs from a metaphysical and shamanistic perspective. I settled on the degree programs of the 50+ year organization of the International Metaphysical Ministry (IMM) offered through one of their institutes of higher learning, the University of Sedona.

Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: Eight of Pentacles – Inverted

Eight Of Pentacles - Inverted

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

Protect what’s important to you and show you care. That’s what makes a house into a home. It’s not how big it is, or how well it’s furnished. Those material things have nothing to do with being “home”. It’s the little things you do for each other to celebrate the small victories. Because the big ones done come around very often.


Additional Insight:

You’re the one who makes a house into a home by caring for each other and living within its walls. Do some clearing, cleansing and set some shields for protection. Do the little repairs to keep it safe and secure. Take a little time to do some cleaning. And when there are celebrations to be had, do a little decorating. Even if all you’re doing is sticking a ribbon and bow onto an entry way, it’s a small way to show the energy you have inside.

The big things in life don’t come along that often to remind us what’s important in our little piece of the world. It’s the little things we take note of and celebrate that remind us of the steps we take forward and joy we have in our every day life. It’s the little things you do for the ones you love and for yourself that create happiness and contentment within yourself.

It’s not the trappings of crystal chandeliers, fine china or linen table cloths that make a celebration meal special. It’s the moments we share with those we love, the laughter and little conversations that matter the most. Even if the one you’re sharing it with has four legs, feathers or scales; family can mean many different things to different people. You’re never really alone, even if that special connection of energy is with the one you love visits in spirit.

Take time to put up the decorations, no matter how small. Even if you’re the only one who will see it, you’re worth the effort. Let yourself feel the love and compassion, the sparkling celebration and beauty of your space. The little smile you express is enough to lift your spirit and remind you, there’s always someone who cares and who loves within your own home.

Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: Ace of Pentacles –

 

Ace of Pentacles

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft


Don’t put all your eggs in one basket today. It’s easier for someone to take all that you have and leave you with nothing. Caution and sensibility are the words that should be spinning in your head. You know what needs to be done and how to do it. Don’t throw caution to the wind and take your chances. Be watchful, hold onto what you have and don’t get suckered into a false sense of security.


Additional Insight:

Be cautious today, especially if you go shopping. You’re being watched and your sense of trust or the “Oh that won’t happen to me” mindset will go against you.

You know what to do to protect yourself from thieves and scams. So don’t let your guard down. Don’t flaunt what you have or what you’re carrying with you. It will only make you a target.

Don’t leave your belongings in the cart while you shop, it’s a perfect opportunity for someone to take all that you have. You know all the sensible things to do, and today is the day to do them and not let your guard down.

That includes being too trusting online as well. That person you’ve been talking to for months may not be what they seem to be. Don’t offer donations or fulfill requests for money. No matter how sad their story is, you have ways of checking them out and verifying the details. If you can’t see for yourself or validate their tale through reliable news sources, they’re only trying to scam you. No matter what feelings you’ve developed for them, or what they say they’ve developed for you.

Don’t be gullible! Even if it comes from a source close to you, the tale may not be what it really seems. Call around and talk to other family members before you fall into their trap. They may need a different kind of help than what they are asking for. Don’t aid them in their self-destruction and use your gut instincts. If you think something is amiss, then trust your senses throughout the day. They may keep you from losing ground and being taken for your kindness and compassion of the season.
