Good Intention, Even When We Drive Each Other Crazy

Think of one person in your work life who drives you absolutely nuts. Take the very first name that pops into your head, even if that name is a surprise to you. You may have thought rationally that dealing with someone else was harder, but if a different name from the one you might haveContinue reading “Good Intention, Even When We Drive Each Other Crazy”

What If My Intuition Doesn’t Work?

Sometimes – rarely – your intuitive guidance doesn’t work for you as well as usual, or as well as you would like. Perhaps you are not focused sufficiently (did you remember to take that breath?); or perhaps the buddy you ask for help can’t help; or perhaps that client just doesn’t want to hear whatContinue reading “What If My Intuition Doesn’t Work?”

Europe Divided

From a private email, written by me on 11 December 2011, now formally On the Record: “Europe falls apart. Does not disappear, but falls apart as a coherent identity.

Germanic influence, including Hapsburg control of the British Crown, means that the divide between ProtestantsContinue reading “Europe Divided”

A Different View of Our Sun

A New Voice: “Tea Party” to “Arab Spring” to “Take Back Wall Street” to…???

The following was written on 16 November 2010 about the emerging Tea Party Movement, now On The Record. Hindsight renders a natural “of course” response to these thoughts now almost two years later, but at the time of writing none of this was clear yet. The  ramifications of this primarily domestic movement continue to reverberateContinue reading “A New Voice: “Tea Party” to “Arab Spring” to “Take Back Wall Street” to…???”

“She Goes on Her Own…” Literal or Metaphorical Meaning?

It is important to discern whether intuitive hunches are meant to be interpreted quite literally, or whether they should be taken as a clue related to something else that is not meant to be literal at all. Stories abound of dreams and other types of premonitions about the World Trade Center collapse, a stock marketContinue reading ““She Goes on Her Own…” Literal or Metaphorical Meaning?”

Insights Leading Up to the October 2008 Stock Market Crash

The following are excerpts from a series of private emails I wrote during the period  December 2007 through September 2008, foreshadowing major events of global proportion that would impact the financial markets. The “Crash of October 2008” officially began on October 6th of that year, but some accounts state that the crash actually began onContinue reading “Insights Leading Up to the October 2008 Stock Market Crash”
