I hope this post finds you well, enjoying the holiday season with friends and family, warm and cozy.

Today, and this past week, I am thankful for HEAT.  We’ve been having ridiculously cold weather for my area – All my outside water froze – Frozen solid! Here, this never happens.  And above most things, I hate being cold.  This past weekend, I read a book that really made me stop and pause, and think about just how lucky I am to be warm inside, with my family around me.  How Lucky I AM – period.  That book is A Lucky Child by Thomas Buergenthal.

This morning I was outside doing some work in the back yard, filling up holes that had been dug by dogs…and it reminded me of the time I spent working as a merchandiser at Lowe’s in the garden department.  I love gardens and plants.  I love talking to people about gardening.  So I thought this would be a great job for me – active, outdoors, and since I started in January it would be brisk and keep me moving.  Yea, the day I started we had a cold snap and it froze.  Unloading and moving wet heavy plants around when it’s freezing, not cool.  This morning reminded me of that time and how miserable it was.  But that’s nothing, LITERALLY NOTHING.  Not even a drop in the bucket.  I’ve got nothing on little Tommy Buergenthal – the child – yes, CHILD – that survived  Auschwitz and Sachsenhausen concentration camps.  He survived the Auschwitz Death March.  And when I say child I mean CHILD, he was liberated from Sachsenhausen at the age of 11.

This past week whenever outside dressed in many layers – long-sleeved t-shirt, heavy jeans, sweater, scarf, heavy coat, and still freezing – even just walking from the car to the grocery store –  I have thought about Tommy.  Who walked the Auschwitz Death March while starving, in what equated to nothing more than thin pajamas, boots too big and no socks, with rags wrapped around his feet..  And I think, could I have done it?  This child who by what he describes as “luck” – his mother was told by a clairvoyant that he was “Ein Glückskind” – a Lucky Child.  She knew that her son would make it through the war – never doubting it.  Miraculously, he did make it, in that time relying solely on luck, the kindness of others, his own instincts and a desire to live – which was tested daily, with death all around – the story is amazing.  A true testament to the human spirit.  I read it in one day.  And his story doesn’t stop with the liberation, it goes on to tell what he has done since and continues to do in his current life.  Yes, Thomas Buergenthal is still alive, and has done, and continues to do phenomenal things for his fellow man, some of which include being a professor of International Law and Human Rights, and serving for more than a decade as the American judge on the International Court of Justice in The Hague.

So having read his story, a child faced with so much injustice, living in a place of horror and despair, and having done so much with the life he was given, I’ve been asking myself, what can I do?  We do what we can with what we’ve got, and we’ve all been given so much in compairison…how can I reach my potential, and not squander my gifts, but use them to help others and show them their own gifts in turn?  There are people all around us every day that can help us, elevate us, show us the direction to go, or stand up for us when we need the help.  The connections are there, if we can see them, make them and maintain them, and when there’s nothing else, there’s always, by the grace of God, Luck.

I am shown this daily.  Today of all days I am shown that faith and hope play a role – today our Traveling Psychic Supper Club project is moving forward, the project that started with one tiny idea and has grown due to the supporting cast of characters we’ve gained along the way – to include many people who believe in it and what it stands for – who see the diamond in the rough.  People that trust, just the right people pushing it forward –  who know where to take it and what to say.

The project that began with a voice mail on December 1st, 2012 that started, “Hello, I’m David Sauvage, I’m a director that…”  – it’s taken a year, many steps along the way, more than a few edits, individuals come and gone, but all the while pushing the project forward…

And now, here we are.  I have all the faith in the world in the people involved in this next step, my New York team.   Today I am thankful for everything and everyone that has gotten us to exactly this point in time, My family, my Austin people, those in NY that found us in the first place, and everyone attached at that little company that starts with a W.   And to everyone that has yet to connect, and seal the deal – I am thankful for you too.  And I know whatever happens is perfect.

Now, in HOPE AND FAITH, LET’S MAKE IT HAPPEN – LET’S DO THIS!

Today is a melancholy day.  Kids back in school, mixed feelings.  Pictures taken.  Started great, watched my sophomore walk off to the bus stop with her best friend, curls bobbing as she got smaller.  Drove the other to Middle School with Beastie Boys on the stere-O, Kisses goodbye.  Now I have the house to myself again, and hours of silence and peace and quiet, except for the occasional chicken cackle from out back or the new budgie chirping from up front.  Or phone call.  And all these emails to answer.

Still moving forward on that little idea, that little flag that was raised, which is snowballing into its own wonderful entity…

THE PROJECT we call it.  For now.

So with phone calls made for the day, emails sent, I finally get to sit down and write on the blog again.  And having come through all different kinds of emotions today I’m settling on words that I guess are a poem, constructed from a few of todays experiences.  If you like this, great.  If not, I’m not going to apologize.  It’s where I am, right now.

Where are you?

Walking back through the doors of the haunted house, I get a glimpse of who I am.  In my space which I have created, alone again.  Not bad alone, not good alone, indifferent, sloshing from light to dark and back again.  Swirling on the tilt a whirl.

Darkness on my right shoulder is mirrored by the angel on my left.  The constant tornado of light that pounds into my head from above, directly behind my left eye, is now joined by the new spike hammered in through my left temple.  A steel hammer on a steel spike, tink, tink, tink.  Not nearly as unpleasant as it sounds.

I’m done with talking, voice worn out.  Just watching and waiting, for the next piece.  I’ve extended the only hand I can.  So I’m Ophelia now.  Sinking slowly, gently smiling.  Not in water, but in blood.  As the sun warms my face, I wait.

 I’ve got my number now.

My last post was about feeling stuck.  But at the writing of this post, the waters are swirling, the flood gates are open, waves are crashing and its GO TIME.  So this post is about Catfish, which I’ve almost been obsessed about lately, A Course in Miracles which has come back into my life with a positive vengeance and oddly, animal totems.  Please stay with me.  This is going to be a true stream of consciousness experience.  If you live in a cave and don’t know about Catfish, you can click on the picture below to go straight to the official MTV page.  

CATFISH means a lot of different things to me and the extended people in my current experience – and they know who they are, he he.  Having said that, no, I’ve never Catfished anyone, nor have I been Catfished.  I didn’t have much thought about it, I don’t watch any shows on MTV.  But then Catfish came onto my radar when we started working on our show, and was brought to my attention from the farthest place I would have thought, Kelly, a very logical member of the Traveling Psychic Supper Club told me about it.  Wait.  Kelly told me to watch something on MTV.  This caught my attention.  So I watched it.  And I liked it.  Then I forgot about it, kind of.  I always really liked the human aspect of it, and that Nev had been through it himself, so could relate to the very real emotions those that had been “catfished” were experiencing.  I connected to that, because psychically I have always had the experience of connecting to people – friends, acquaintances and the people I read through stories and personal experience.  

So since the new Catfish season is about to start, it’s been all over MTV again.  I was able to sit down and watch the Catfish movie – which really caught my attention, the ending when two people sit down, face to face, the hurter and the hurt and face each other just raw and exposed – to talk in a place of no defense, no judgment, it just is what it is.  That is powerful.  And that makes me think of the work I’ve done in the past years via A Course in Miracles – which I’ve recently picked up again, in perfect time, again, in relation to Kelly.  This non-coincidence is not lost on me.  🙂

If you are familiar with the Course, you know how amazing it is.  If you aren’t then you should look into it.  Even if it’s just to figure out the connection between the Course and Catfish.  The Course teaches everything is love.  Pain, Anger and Judgment are all just Love, flipped and looked at the wrong way.  That we are all one, so in being all one, no person is separate from each other, or our source, which is also part of the one.  So since we are not separate, how can one person harm or hurt another?  That this existence is just this amazingly precise fabrication – a dream that we have created to see ourselves as separate.  But we’re not.  So that brings me back to Catfish.

So obviously in the show, as in the original movie we are following a story – a profile of a non-existent person has been fabricated to create a relationship that without that fabrication (at least on one side) wouldn’t exist.  A whole relationship – has been fabricated.  It’s a dream that both parties have subscribed to – and have created this whole other existence on.  To both, it’s very real – a story they’ve both subscribed to and fallen into.  This is a tiny variation of this dream state we have collectively fabricated – that separates us all as individuals.  In Catfish the Movie we are viewers, and are able to watch this unfolding which, by all normal means should end in a conflict, a fight, defenses and anger.  But it doesn’t.  It’s amazing.  It ends simply in a desire to understand, and still, through a betrayal, connect.  And in this, the opportunity is presented to see Angela’s side, something that wouldn’t have happened if all the above emotions had had their way.  And when I saw it, her side, as I’m sure others did as well, I could say, “wow” – OK, this person is totally isolated, and in this attempt to reach out, in the most hidden of ways, I get it.  I wouldn’t do it, but I can GET IT.  And you see the whole crew – Nev especially – GET IT.  And those emotions of anger – you can see them turn.  I think that’s pretty amazing.  And it’s a start.  It’s a start of something big, and a wave, a chance to see someone not as canniving, manipulative or a user, but as vulnerable, afraid and seeing themselves as not good enough.  In that, forgiveness, and a human connection is made.  I get it.  And I like it.  The concept is presented as entertaining, which is the hook, but the underlying story of shared forgiveness and connection is not lost.  At all.  It is a seed that is planted, that in some places will grow.  This is something I (We) hope to create with our own show – not in the way like Catfish, but seeing it present there shows me we can – Through a Psychic Connection, shared through a story.  

So when I was looking up different stuff about Catfish – I came across this on http://www.starstuffs.com/animal_totems/dictionary_of_wateranimals.html– which perfectly describes where I am right now.   And it does a pretty good job of describing what Catfish the show is creating too.  Pretty Amazing. 

Catfish

Transformation of the spirit, time to discard what is not needed any more, teaches to have a greater sensitivity in communication. Listen and feel to what is going on around you. Catfish will teach discernment with heightened senses along with sharpening intuitions and feelings. Fish in general show how to swim the currents of life, use of intuition to navigate effectively, aids in attuning to the world of emotions, the un/subconscious and other-worlds, heightened senses including visions, dreams and related psychic abilities. Do you currently feel stuck? The river says it is time flow. Fish can show how to ride the tide to new adventures.

HELL YEA!!  My whirlpool is spinning and the waters are rushing.  And I am ready.  The River says it’s time to flow.  I’m ready to ride the tide to new adventures, with the perfect pieces and people around me.  

I’m with the River, I Say – It’s GO TIME. 

 

 

 

ALRIGHT… the Traveling Psychic Supper Club has been working on  project for a while and it’s time for me to share it.  I’m writing about it on the Clair Blog – although it’s Supper Club related because this is really personal to me, and it’s an experience that is COMPLETELY CLAIRVOYANT and I just keep seeing that this is where it belongs.  Because this is where it started, and you can get to it from the Traveling Supper Club Page too.  The journey started here, and the whole thing is based in the clairvoyant, and the perfect coming together of 5 ABSOLUTE strangers to create something amazing and new and different.

So then Reader, let me ask you, if there were another Psychic TV Show on about a Psychic Supper Club, that is also a support group of sorts, something that shows you that YOU are psychic to, because let’s face it, we all are, and showed you how to access that and apply it to your everyday life, would you watch it?  A show about regular people who you could sit down and talk with, someone like you or your brother, or your neighbor?  That you could access through the blog, and then maybe even sit down and talk with one on one (or really, 5 on 1 – we’re not scary, and we don’t bite…) Some one REAL?

I hope so – because that’s what we are working on right now – going into April working with our Amazing Director and Producer to create just what people are looking for and want to see.   This is a completely new and exciting experience for all of us – none of us has ever done TV before, we come from “regular” lives, and it’s crazy and wonderful and REAL, even though it’s totally UNREAL.  And it’s not for us, it’s for EVERYONE and we are doing it with that intent:  That EVERYONE can get something from it, kids, adults, families, friends.  So that we can start a discussion that moves forward and around to become many other conversations…So this is it – this is the project, I hope you’ll follow the progress whether it’s through the TPSC page or the If You Could See What I Hear page, I invite you to join us.  Because after all, you are one of us.  Thank you for reading, for following, whether you just started today, or have been with me since the beginning, you are welcome, and I am happy you are here.

Next installment:  How it all happened…Stay Tuned!

Hello again and hope all is well. I’m led today to talk about positive connections – seeing them, making them, and appreciating them – to keep bringing them to yourself, your work and your life.

The Traveling Psychic Supper Club and I are all about connections. We love sharing new ones with new members, seeing who fits in with who where, what experiences we have shared that are similar, and where we are going together. Everyone has their own special connections within the group. Like a ripple effect on a pond there are those of us in the inner circle, those that are on the outer edges of the circle, then those of us that have come in then out, but that are always welcome, whenever they can make it. I’m meeting people all of the time that are moving int “the new energy” of making positive connections, and letting go of old ones that no longer serve them. It’s an exciting place to be. Here’s what I’m talking about.

I’m meeting more and more people who are outright, with no excuses and no fear living their passions. Taking steps off of cliffs into the unknown, feeling the rush of the wind and knowing – EVERYTHING IS GOING TO BE OK. No matter what. I’m trusting. I’m KNOWING. I’m EXPERIENCING and I AM SAFE. I’m taking care of myself, because I am feeding myself and my soul. And in turn, feeding others and their souls. In this way, if you can see that you are always safe, there is no unknown. Even the things that come into your life that are…hmm, shall I say unexpected, or a sudden event or even a tragedy – depending on how you see it, are a part of your path and the journey.

I’ve had some people ask me lately, but what about me? Everyone at my job is so negative, or my family – they just don’t get me, or this or that or whatever else is keeping me from being happy…what about me? In my work with kids, it is so much easier to see people for who they really are. Can you see anyone who makes you feel uncomfortable as…a kid? Can you see the things around THEM that make them unhappy? I’ve been working on a bullying presentation that I’m going to be giving at our District Conference next month. I’ve been looking at the difficulty of Bullying, while addressing issues of FEAR and LOVE. When someone is agitating you, or you out right just can’t stand them or their ways, are you looking at them through FEAR or LOVE? Can you see the child they are, and what could be agitating them? Can you take a walk in their shoes in other words? You may see that their shoes are way too tight, rubbing over and over creating blisters and pain. Maybe their parents can’t afford new shoes, so they have to wear these uncomfortable ones. Or maybe they have holes on the bottom, which cause them embarrassment or shame.

Can you really take a good look at those shoes?

They may fit perfectly fine, but not the BRAND that kid wanted, which causes resentment and again, shame, nothing is ever right. Can you see those shoes and all the external judgement that child feels from them? Now can you see the kid IN those shoes? When your feet hurt, you can’t focus on anything else. Maybe that’s what’s “wrong” with those people who agitate you. Maybe they have so many “wrongs” going on in their life, they can’t see past it. And when you walk up in BARE FEET, talking about how great everything is… When someone is living in pain, or fear, they don’t want to hear about how great your life is, and how you are living your passion. But instead of getting angry at that person, remember their shoes, and love them, right there for who they are. It may be that love that gives them an opportunity not to be angry or judge you, but look down at their shoes and think about how they can be happy too. Everyone rubs off on someone else. Everyone plants a seed somewhere. If you are living in the flow of life, and living your passion today, stepping off cliffs, keep doing it, someone is watching you and may just take your que to take off those ratty old shoes and do the same thing.

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.

 

 

Back to the original blog!  I’m trying to figure out the way to make both blogs available in the same place, as well as where they already exist.  I’ve me the person that is showing me how to do that, but I’ve not gotten there yet.  It’s coming.

BUT THIS POST IS ABOUT DREAMS, EMPATHY and BULLIES

I never remember my dreams.  In fact at the dinner last week we were talking and I felt a little small and left out – everyone was talking about these amazing dreams they have, lucid, colorful, vivid – just really amazing.  And I didn’t have much to contribute because I don’t dream.  When I said that Lacey turned to me with this look of disbelief – she said, “what do you mean?”  Well what I mean is this – I lay down, it’s dark, then I wake up.  There’s nothing in between.  Nothing that I remember I should say.  Sometimes – and we were talking about this as well – I’ll have a snippet – a tiny window later in the day when I’ll remember…something.  And it’s sharp and clear, but fleeting, as soon as it comes, it’s gone.

But since we had the dinner, and I’m not surprised by this – since this seems to be the case with anything we discuss – I’ve started seeing my dreams.  Not all of what I know is there, but some.  And I’ve been dreaming of Empathy.  This is part of my next path.  I’ve been invited to speak at a conference at my school district – for anyone that’s new to the blog I wrote a program that teaches kids to trust their instincts that is available in my area but I’m looking to expand it through other programs and public speaking.  You can see that program here:  www.iprojectconfidence.com.  I’m moving into Empathy Training.  Bullying is a big problem nationwide and we’ve had some suicides in our district that have been linked to bullying.  For me, this is just unacceptable – knowing what I know about Empathy and choosing again.  So I’ve been dreaming about it, and when I sat down to write my program information for the conference – all those dreams came out.  That and things I experienced growing up – about being separate and choosing.  It’s all coming together.  I’ll write more on it later but this is part of my path, and it’s amazing…partially because I’m seeing my dreams.  Have an amazing Saturday!

Hello everyone –

I’ve been working on a few projects lately, and this one is ready to fly.  The Traveling Psychic Supper Club has taken on a life of it’s own, so I thought it warranted a break away.  I’ve created a new site specifically for it here:

www.travelingpsychicsupperclub.com

This site will contain all the information about the club, upcoming dinners, restaurant reviews of spots we visit as well as brief overview of conversations we have.  I’ve also included a place for topics of conversation and local favorite places of mine all over town.  This will be kind of more focused on the Austin area, so if you are making a trip to Austin, the best city in Texas by FAR, and one of the best cities in the country – check in and see what’s going on.  I’ll try to keep this page updated as far as upcoming fun and relevant events around town.If you are coming to Austin, maybe you can even stop in and visit  the group for a dinner.  We’d love to have you.

 

I’ll keep the If You Could See What I Hear blog rolling here in the same format.  I love writing here and love connecting with everyone from all over.  I invite you to jump over and visit the TPSC page – and please note: it’s in its infancy so I ask you please be patient – I’m adding new information every day as I have the time.

The biggest news is the upcoming TPSC Halloween dinner being held in a very special location:  The World Famous Haunted Driskill Hotel located in Downtown Austin.  This dinner is actually a whole day event  that includes a private tour of the hotel for the group, drinks if you like, and a dinner reservation at the 1886 Cafe and Bakery located inside the Driskill.  I wanted to do something extra special for this amazing group.  I’m very excited and am looking forward to sharing the day, learning and expanding.  I have held having a dinner at the Driskill as a kind of pinnacle  – something to reach for in the future, but I’m ready to grasp everything I’ve allowed to be held out in front of me and said, why not?  or more importantly – WHY NOT NOW?  So this is it.  If you are in the area I invite you to join us.  It’s going to be a wicked fun time.  And please, visit the new site, and let me know what you think.  I always enjoy feedback and connecting with everyone – wherever I can.
