“Home” is Where the Art is – [Article/Contest Entry]

So Vocal Media is having a challenge for Vocal Creators like me called “Behind the Beat” where we write about a song that changed our lives. I wrote about “Home” by Three Days Grace and ultimately it was a bittersweet experience, but so very awesome. Here’s the beginning:

The perfect parent doesn’t exist. There will never be a guardian with flawless parenting or the supernatural sense of knowing exactly what their children need all the time. However, every parent and child will come to experience the bittersweet fact of life called pain. Pain echoes in the hearts of the emotionally neglected with a perfect resonance that could bond them or break them. It transforms our relationships with one another and our relationship with life. That echo has reverberated for generations. In my time, the echo thrust into me through the song “Home” by Three Days Grace and it not only woke me to the pain I didn’t understand or know how to express, but also acted as my personal catalyst for self-expression and retrospection through the arts and friendship.

Prose of The Fool – [Prose Poem]

The first step is the hardest. Could it be because there’s no more land beneath your feet after that first step? The dog is barking with urgency, while your heart is beating with passion, and your foot hovers over a ledge taunting gravity and fate. Calling you The Fool isn’t an insult to your bravery nor an applause. You are pure adrenaline, you are the heart falling into the stomach, the stomach jumping into the throat. You might be naive or tired of everyone calling you what you’re not. You’re just The Fool facing this new beginning that may have been by Chance, but that’s no reason to pass it up.

I’m so honored that Vocal.Media put this poem on the homepage as a Staff Pick! It really boosted my spirit for further tarot-based prose poetry.

The Backwards Law and The Wheel of Fortune – [Article]

“If we are to be fully human, fully alive and aware, it seems that we must be willing to suffer for our pleasures.”

Suffering is associated with living, just as pain is associated with being alive. We wouldn’t call ourselves human or alive without experiencing these things, but we also wouldn’t say we were living if we were constantly in a state of suffering. The Wheel of Fortune is a reminder that fortune and misfortune cycles throughout our lives. Our control is located in our responses to it

I’m confused.

I just signed in to Vocal.Media but I had to go through my articles to reach my account…what? Okay well…guess I’ll figure this out.

Sorry for the misinformation before.

Issues With Vocal.Media – [News]

Hello all,

So, for over a week now, I’ve been having issues signing into Vocal.Media and accessing my account so I can write more articles. This is due to an update to the website. Since this isn’t really within my control, I am still writing the article on the first Hermetic principle, but if it takes too long for Vocal.Media to fix the issues, I’ll probably post it on the website.

Additionally, finally made a TikTok account (as I was freaking out before in my previous post, heheh) and the purpose of that isn’t really to just goof around. I want to be more transparent with my music making process and with just how I create in general. For those of you interested, my account name is authentikei. Because of the writing issues, I’ll probably focus on music a bit more, but I wish to stay connected with you all, so I hope you do follow. I like sharing my artistry with you.

Have a good day.

Hey there… [News]

So many weird mishaps happened the last couple of days and I tried to post and update yesterday, but the Internet was one of those mishaps.

First – finally passed 100 followers on WordPress! Thank you so much!

Second – my right hand got hurt yesterday, which makes writing and making music difficult, but I’m trying to work around it while resting my hand.

Three – Vocal.Media has been going through some website updates, so if you’ve been trying to read some of my articles and you weren’t able to, that’s why. With patience, I’m sure the issue will be resolved.

Fourth – I am grateful for all who read, support, and chat with me. Gratitude abounds and I hope all of you are having a nice end of the summer.

Fifth – I AM DAMN EXCITED FOR AUTUMN!

Sixth – Due to my own experiences, I’m going to see if I can work up an article on past lives and reincarnation. Are you interested?

Seventh – The first Kybalion article will be on The Principle of Mentalism and it’s on the way…once vocal.media gets fixed.

Heheh. Be well, my friends.

6 Ways To Cleanse and Empower Yourself – [New Article]

“This is not your average list of cleansing techniques. You’re not going to be told that these techniques are going to help you “get rid of all the negativity and toxicity in your life.” You’re not going to be offered products that can take care of everything that’s a problem in your life. This is a list of cleansing techniques that also empowers you. We are taking the time to know ourselves, know our environment, and invest in our confidence.”

Read the rest of the article here…

I’m really excited to share this article with all of you. Please read and let me know what you think.  The techniques are based on sensation/stimuli:

  1. Listen
  2. Look
  3. Feel
  4. Breathe
  5. Touch
  6. Practice

I really hope it will help those who need cleansing in their lives and wants to be empowered enough to handle whatever kind of negativity comes their way.
