Hello AGAIN and Happy Friday the 13th!!

Today is the day to share some amazing news that the Traveling Psychic Supper Club has been working on for the past year.

I guess the best place to start is kind of what is the beginning.  I hope you’ll stay with me…and if you Started with me, I hope you’ll add anything I’ve forgotten!

It all kind of started with this Event, which brings me full circle today – This was my first event with the Driskill hotel, which I had always seen as a PINNACLE.  I wanted to do something there, but wasn’t sure if I should, like it was too soon after starting the supper club which had just begun in July.  But Lacey was there and said, why not?  WHY NOT THIS YEAR?

So I went with it.

Then I went to a marketing/PR meeting because I kinda suck at that stuff – where I met Dave Mazner of  http://www.meetup.com/PRoverCoffee-Austin/ here in Austin, I told him what I did and he told me to contact

http://austin.culturemap.com/  that they would love what I do and be into the Supper Club.  I did the next day and Michael Graupmann wrote this amazing article.  Which would be instrumental in my/our future and I didn’t even know it.   The Driskill dinners were a huge success and I now work closely with the Driskill on public and private dinners.  I’m having one tonight, in fact!  What better night than Friday the 13th?

So  around Thanksgiving I wrote this:

http://travelingpsychicsupperclub.com/2012/11/24/making-it-happen-chopped-and-motor-coaches/

This is how fast things happen if you let them.

I wrote that post on November 24, 2012.

On December 5, 2012 I got a phone call from a director named David Sauvage .  He had been commissioned to create a pitch about a show about psychics and food by a major Cable Network.  This is David.  He’s awesome!

David and his Production Partner Andrew Bly flew out to meet us for a dinner.  It was at the Driskill.  It was amazing.  David and Andrew were both “one of us”.  Some stuff happened, then we had a tiny setback that wasn’t a setback at all, just a blip and we moved forward.  Someone amazing stepped forward and we were back on track.  We made a plan to start the ball rolling on a production reel and they came out and filmed it in April.  I wrote about it here: http://travelingpsychicsupperclub.com/2013/05/14/psychic-tv-behind-the-scenes-aprils-dinner-at-moonshine/

Then they left, we kept in touch, some stuff happened, Summer happened. The footage was edited and shown to some people – but a lot of them didn’t get it.  So we kept working (David, Andrew and their guys – they kept working.)  We kept having dinners, doing readings, swimming, enjoying our kids/families/LIFE and this amazing wonderful summer of 2013.

Somewhere in there, I got a radio show with an AMAZING online Paranormal Radio community called www.paramaniaradio.com.  Thank you very much to very talented astrologer and Supper Club member Donna Woodwell for making that connection!

During this time, I was still talking to David, and our conversations became much more frequent.  We ended up collaborating on a regular basis, he would say this is what I have – this is where we are, and we would talk and I would channel and we would decifer the information that came in.  And we would go in the direction we were led.  And a very clear direction emerged.  The individual with the right energy emerged so we moved towards that.

Then Susan, Lacey and I went to Boston.  I wrote about that here: https://ifyoucouldseewhatihear.wordpress.com/2013/08/10/so-im-baaaaccckkkk/

We did a radio show from there which was fun.  You can listen to that here:http://paramaniaradio.com/extras/ondemand.php?ondemanddir=Traveling%20Psychic%20Supper%20Club&getfile=Traveling%20Psychic%20Supper%20Club%20-%20Lacey%20Givins%20and%20Susan%20Eischhorn%2020130725.mp3

Our trip to Boston really created a whole new level of energy, even though it involved only Lacey, Susan and myself, it solidified something for all of us.  It was a tipping point and the GAME WAS ON.  By going to Boston, we had, as David says, Put our stake in the ground.

While we were in Boston I had lots of phone calls with David, conversations with Kelly, Lacey and Susan.  Kirby pretty much chills and we fill him in later.  That’s just how Kirby rolls.  He grounds us.  He’s rad.

We were getting offers to partner from some different production companies but the fits weren’t there.  None of they were who I had seen.  I held off on dropping the hammer, and David agreed.  This partnership has been amazing, and correct.  BUT We weren’t there yet.  And these were amazing companies, each and every one.  But it wasn’t right yet.  The correct Tetris blocks hadn’t fallen yet.  The right block would fall right from the top, didn’t need to be twisted or turned, and it would be perfect.

Then it fell.  The right person got it.  And not just got it, but GOT IT.  The right block appeared and fell into place.

So if you’ve stuck with me this far here is the announcement:

I am proud to announce that the Traveling Psychic Supper Club is partnering with the Weinstein Company to create our TV Show.   Some stuff needs to happen between now and then, but it will, and I’ll be heading to New York to pitch the show to networks alongside my Director, Collaborator and Friend, David Sauvage and Harvey Weinstein, who I have yet to meet, but am already excited to connect to this amazing ball of energy.  Things are coming together, and we are here to do the work.  I hope you’ll visit back to see the progress on the project, which I am excited to now openly share.  There is so much energy behind this, and I appreciate the energy that the group, David and Andrew and everyone associated with them – Josh, Alexi, my Hernandez family that I come from, my immediate family – Jim, Pic and Elena, my TPSC Family here in Austin, my extended family at Paramania Radio, and my psychic family that is only growing all over the country.  Everyone who has worked with us on this side, AND the other, Adam and Paige – Love to all you guys.   This is only growing and getting better.

There is work to be done.  I’m here to make things happen, and I don’t mess around.  Thank you to everyone who is behind me and the Traveling Psychic Supper Club.

Perfect timing:  3:33pm

This is how I feel right now.  Can’t Hold Us.  SO many things about this song speak to me on so many levels.  And it’s just wicked fun, when I hear it I move.  My city’s behind me.  And anyone who knows me knows I’m like when you give a little speed to a Great White Shark on Shark Week.  Macklemore’s flag says The Heist.  Mine’s just got an EYE.

Thanks everybody and have an amazing weekend.  Love to you all, Love from Texas

OK, so if you follow me anywhere else, you may be kind of tired of hearing about this, but I’m trying to get the word out, not just about this event but that being psychic is fun.  Really, Really fun.  Not creepy or weird, maybe unusual, but a lot of fun too.

Flix Brewhouse is a movie theater here in Austin that does lots of fun stuff.  You can eat a tasty meal and have a beer or drink while watching a movie in comfort and style.  Last month they had a showing of Talladega Nights to celebrate Will Ferrell’s birthday, complete with birthday cake and commemorative pint glasses.  Check this out…

Pretty Rad.  So on the way I was thinking, since I’d just watched the Sixth Sense with my daughter, what if they did a Q&A with a psychic along with a screening of the movie for Halloween?  I told Jim and he was like, “Yea, that would be cool.”  Then we watched Talladega Nights and had a blast.

So the next day I Emailed Flix with my idea, and heard back from Merredith, the Marketing Manager – who is incredibly wonderful to work with.  By no coincidence, they were having a meeting that afternoon and she was excited to pitch it….The powers that be had the meeting and came back with this counter – how about poltergeist?

HOW ABOUT POLTERGEIST???????????

HELLS YEA!!! That was an even BETTER IDEA than Sixth Sense.  Creepier.  Scarier, OLDER and it goes without saying…

AND

I was totally on board.  So here is the idea come to life.  This is what happens when you STRIKE WHILE THE IRON IS HOT.

If you have a crazy little idea, share it, something really cool and amazing can happen!  And if you partner with someone SUPER KICK ASS like FLIX BREWHOUSE that says, yea, I GET it and want to do it to…something like this can happen.

Get your tickets here:http://www.flixbrewhouse.com/

click on Purchase Tickets in the top left hand corner and choose poltergeist.

Then Show up October 29 and let’s have a kick ass time.

Here it is…

Today I bit the bullet and went downtown – not quite into the heart of SXSW craziness, but close enough.  I went down to Book People had the pleasure of hearing and meeting $100 Startup author and world traveler Chris Guillebeau.  I’m glad I went.

This morning I found out that the train doesn’t run on Sundays.  Even for SXSW which is ridiculous.  Do you hear me Austin CapMetro?  Ridiculous.  Parking down there is absolutely crazy during this event – and the one day I really care to go, the train’s not moving.  So I had pretty much decided I wasn’t going to go – really bummed, but decided.  Wait, I haven’t really conveyed just how impossible it is to park down there, and it’s not just parking, but the million pedestrians just walking all over and the petty cabs going SOOO SLOW.

But – Then I got a return tweet back from Chris about the event – literally the minute after I deciding I wasn’t going.  Just the quickest little note – but at just the right time.  It turned the day around.  One of those nice little non-random co-incidences…So, THAT changed my mind.  And I went.  And when I got there (way early – expecting to have to drive around for an hour then end up paying to park wherever I could find) – I was pleasantly surprised by…many open parking spaces!  All the businesses make sure to let people know there is NO special event parking at their business, and I got there early enough to beat the crowd for the meetup.  So that was great.  I had asked my parking angel in advance to keep a spot open for me, or make one available and it was done.

Chris was very warm and personable.  He walked around and talked with people before he spoke.  And when he spoke it was mostly to share other people’s stories.  I liked that.  I connected to it.  One thing that he said that really stuck out to me was this:  Do what makes you feel personally successful.  It doesn’t have to be success to other people’s standards.  I agree.  Sometimes I think we hold ourselves up to everyone else’s standards of success that our own go to the wayside.   Other people’s standards get in the way and muddy our waters.  It’s important to remember what success looks like to us.  When we have a TPSC dinner and I can FEEL the connections happening within myself and the others present, that’s success.  Money can’t touch it.  And there’s no price for it.  When I do a reading, and I see the cogs turning, or I see the words I’m relaying creating “clicks” in the receiver…that’s success on an other-worldly level.  Do I get paid?  sure. But that’s not the end result I’m seeking foremost.  Most of all I’m seeking  connection.  And not for myself, but for others.  So they can create connections, and in turn seek them too.

At the end Chris invited a few people to stand up and tell their stories of living their passion.  That also was inspiring.  A good storyteller is also a good story sharer.  At the end at the signing, we got this pic.  I told Chris, laughing, while Elena took our picture, let’s smile like we’re friends.  He stopped writing and turned to me and said quietly “We are.”  And I believed him.  Anyone who can inspire others to step up and out and live their passion – I’m honored to call a friend.

So much has happened since (and actually before) I wrote my last post – and hopefully I’ll sit down and go back and pull it up to write it.  But today and for the last few weeks, I’ve been thinking about Fight Club.

I am Tyler Durden.  __________________________________________________________________________________________

And the Traveling Psychic Supper Club is my Fight Club.

__________________________________________________________________________________________

A couple of nights ago I was being interviewed and when asked about the most basic things about the members I couldn’t answer.  Where does Kelly work?  I don’t know.

Where does Bobbie work?  I don’t know.  I mean I know where she works, that’s where I met her, but I don’t know the brand she works for.

Does Kirby have kids? I don’t know.

We don’t talk about that stuff.  We don’t care about that stuff.  We don’t talk about jobs, mortgages, property taxes – in fact, It’s kind of our only…not rule.  I’m not really into rules.  It’s more like a guideline.  It’s just not what we’re here for.  That stuff bores me.  It puts Kelly in a coma.  I mean, not like if Kirby has kids I think they’re boring, but it’s not really relevant to why we’ve been brought together.  Unless someone knew me outside of the group before it started, I doubt anyone knows my kid’s names.  And I’m cool with that.

But ask me what does Kelly have?  What are Kelly’s gifts?  Kirby, Lacey, Susan?  And I can tell you.  That I know.  And I can write volumes about it, and know there are volumes more to be written.  Because what we are is evolving…but our project is different than Project Mayhem.  Instead of moving chaotically away from society and getting more and more destructive, we are moving TOWARDS it, and bringing others with us.  It’s going to be pretty freakin’ AWESOME.

We started out underground, a thought, a conversation.  I put out a little flag – a tiny one, and a couple of people saw it and said – HEY!  That tiny flag with the eye on it!  That’s my flag!  I’ll stand under it.

BAM – here we go.

Now, more and more people are seeing the flag.  Some just say, hey, that’s a neat little flag, what’s it about?  And other’s say, HOLY CRAP!  I’ve been dreaming about that flag all my life!! And run to it.  For other’s it speaks to something in them, and not knowing what exactly, and not caring, they come and join us under our flag.  And others remember it, as something vague, something from…somewhere, possibly from a lifetime past.  People from here in Austin came.  And people from other parts of the country came.  People from all over the world are saying…this is my flag.  And this makes me incredibly happy.  We are doing what we are here to do.

So if you are one of us, I say – join us.  If you are an empath, clairvoyant, clairaudient, have premonitions, have as strong sense of intuition, just KNOW things, but don’t know how you know them, see dead people, or are in the right place at the right time, all the time.  Had something as a kid, but it was looked down on, so you hid it away and now you want it back.  Or how about this one – people you’ve just met tell you their whole life story, then tell you, I don’t know why I just told you that.  Then look at YOU like YOU should know.

If you are an outlier, on the fringe, on the cusp, live in between places – Join us.  Amazing things are happening.  We see them, and revel in them.  And it’s only getting better.  Something big is coming – and we are putting positive energy behind it.  When it hits – you’ll know.  And hopefully you can see a part of one of us in yourself.  It’s happening.  And it’s wonderful.  Keys are turning, and connections are being made all in perfect time.

We are ready.  If you’re ready too, I’ve got only one more thing to say to you:

 

I want you to hit me as hard as you can.

 

 

Kat Edmonson at ACL

Last night I had the pleasure of seeing Kat Edmonson play a taping of Austin City Limits.  If you don’t know this artist, it was my first time hearing her music ever, and what a wonderful way to see, hear and experience her.  She’s a tiny little thing with a voice reminiscent of an older time, with sorrow and joy, hollow and full mixed in her sound all at once.  She played this song twice last night, being a tv taping  I guess something wasn’t quite right the first time, but actually the first rendition touched me deeply and moved me to tears.  Wanted to share it here.  Warning:  It’s slow and simple.  You’ll actually have to take a minute to listen, but slow down and hear the message…what else do you have to do anyway…life is just a dream…take some time out to enjoy.

We walked out into a rainy, yet uplifting night.  It kind of went along with the whole feeling of the show and of the night.  Thank you ACL and Kat Edmonson for a lovely evening.

So anyone that reads this blog knows Clairvoyant Girl of http://aclairavoyantjourney.wordpress.com/ and I are on similar paths.  Mine in the suburbs outside of Austin Texas, hers in the foothills in Colorado.  We have spoken many times, usually parallel-ly about paths, she experiences seeing the same numbers (3:33, 5:55, 11;11, 12:34) over and over again, as I always do.  She has issues with uncovering the light, and being fully into who she is – and setting that shine for the world to see.  As do I.   So, this post is for everyone, but especially dedicated to my sister Clairgirl.  I hope you find your voice again soon.

OK, I’ve had the idea forever about having classes for others to uncover their clairvoyant/psychic selves.  To have a group that openly discusses their gifts, out in the open, not with whispers afraid of who will overhear, or having to preface a thought with…this may sound weird, or you may think I’m crazy….I always tell my clients – you CAN’T freak me out.  Leave that stuff behind when we sit together – just talk without fear of judgement.  And I haven’t been close to being freaked out yet!  The reason for a group to meet is so people can see that we all have SOMETHING – many people have shared with me that they USED to have “IT” – whatever their “IT” is, but felt they’ve lost it, and want to get it back.  So, I’ve prefaced the story with that.

After meeting a fellow clair – by an amazing turn of events – I finally got up the courage to approach a local coffee shop, a place I thought would be great – large enough to accommodate a decent sized group, that had a good feel to it.  Close enough to town that people from farther south would come, but those of us in the burbs wouldn’t have to drive downtown.  So I spoke with the incoming owner (the place is changing hands apparently) and she was excited about me having classes there – until I told her more about what they were for.  Then her WHOLE energy changed.  Her smile was still pasted on, but I could feel the wall come up and the fear right along with it.  The sudden judgement.  I asked her what she thought of that, although I already knew the answer.  She said, “I DON’T FEEL GOOD ABOUT IT.”  Smile still pasted on.  The only thing I could do was thank her, wish her a good day, and turn around and walk out.

I went out and sat in my truck.  So many feelings coming up it was hard to decifer them.

SADNESS. DISAPOINTMENT. FEELING JUDGED.  that old familiar feeling of WHO DO I THINK I AM? but behind all of that something even MORE FAMILIAR.  the feeling that I have felt all of this before, but on a WAY larger scale.  That brought up some fear, which I needed to look at, but I shelved it and called my new clair friend – I needed a confidence boost.  She was AWESOME, and told me everything I already know, what I would have told anyone else…but couldn’t tell myself.  It just wasn’t the place.  Keep going, chin up.  Maybe this is something bigger than just meeting in a coffee shop.  She stoked the fire that I was ready to let go back to that tiny ember that just burns in my mind.  She gave me the boost I needed, that little key that kept the cogs turning.  That conversation reminded me that our connections are so important, those little boosts.  SO to that friend I say

NAMASTE!

SO, on to part two, the part that’s really for ClairGirl – the unfurling of emotions that continued from that one coffee shop denial.  And this is the part that kept unwinding throughout that day and night.  There was something deep that got scratched, something that has been there for a long time.  That has been there over lifetimes.  Going back and back and back when judgement wasn’t just a painted on smile that went along with a NO, but when revealing one’s self, or having one’s self revealed brought physical pain, torture, death.  The fear is deep seated, THAT’S the fear we face.  Not of SELF ACCEPTANCE, but of ACCEPTANCE of WHO WE ARE BY OTHERS.  That’s where I teeter, constantly.  That’s what keeps me from taking those steps into oblivion, because it really is like stepping off a ledge, out LITERALLY not knowing if it’s into open arms of acceptance, or out into the open arena where the lions are waiting to tear us limb from limb.  These are the things that we face that are fear creators. So, that’s legitimate, for then.  And some things came up that showed me that clearly.  Some memories from way way back, during darker times.  That’s the only way to say it without going into it and making this post even longer than it already is.  I wonder, does this ring true for anyone else?  I’ve been studying past lives (again), been led back to it and I’m…remembering.   But that was then.  I need to let the fear be what it is for now.  Not what it was then.  I’m working on acknowledging it, accepting it, but also having it be what it is for THIS time.  This is part of the peeling of the onion for me, all those layers, all those lives, all that pain, and let it go.  So I can be who I am NOW, and be the connector I am here to be.  So for today, for everyone, NAMASTE.
