Some say we are living in the past... this is all just a memory. Trippy.
"He transformed what was once a nursery for live infants, into a nursery for his Cabbage Patch Kids. And instead of salesclerks, Roberts turned his employees into nurses and doctors, giving them uniforms. He also requested that they interact with the dolls. The dolls “slept” in incubators and cribs and each doll was given a birth certificate.
He also stole his classmate's concept. Her name was Martha Nelson Thomas. She was a flowerchild and able to tapp into creation by birthing the Doll-Baby concept. And Roberts being more motivated by greed saw profit in her products. So he plagerized and blended her divine vision with his magickal marketing and "Abracadabra!" A million-dollar Cabbage Patch Kids Franchise. Which according to Vice and History101.com gave birth to Black Friday, the American shopping craze following Thanksgiving. Which is fitting. If we were to attach color magick to the dolls and their energy then Black is appropriate. Black'ness' :: Dark'ness'. They were brought to market by a thief that studied Art. Hey, people sleep on the Arts forgetting its a form of Creation, raw Creation. Just like the raw materials that were crafted to make the dolls. Art uses symbolism to represent a vision or concept. Yes? So this Wizard Richard gave his dolls life using the symbols of Birth- babies, hospitals, birth certificates, nurserys... Until the dolls took on a life of their own within the Market's psyche. Isnt this a form of voodoo? Something about dolls used to manipulate lifeforce? Ijs. Of course the Cabbage-Patch Kids werent breathing, sentient doll-humans. B.u.t. the idea of them was alive in the hearts and minds of 1980s toddlers and grade-school children of America. They were real to the kids that held their birth certificates. They evoked real emotions that pushed parents to "charge them" on credit cards and with cash currency to purchase for their daughters and sons. And DollBabies-Cabbage Patch Kids were real and impactful enough to allow for future Beenie Babies and other Christmas crazes. Which eventually led to Black Friday.
Occultist see dolls are more than children's toys. They are life-like images able to hold an impression inside our minds. The Cabbage Patch story is a casebook example of Dark Magick: sacrifice, manipulation, money, and mystery.
I've started being more aware and in the moment during commutes. While Houston traffic is nobody's joke, it's also interesting who and what is traveling on the highways and byways alonside me. Dare I say inspiring?
It's easy to have tunnel vision in absence of an actual tunnel. Routine can become mundane. Ive found myself switching on Auto-Pilot; thinking about everything else b.u.t. staying present and in the moment. Dont be like me. Lol. Focus on traveling safely while also looking around to see the scenery and who is traveling on the roads with you. Much thought and work has been put into landscaping public places, even those places that appear to be unkept. Remember either the governments or someone, somewhere owns every piece of land our feet touch. Therefore their decision(s) to enhance and diminish the land is evident in the environmental designs we drive past everyday... I digress.
For now, Ask youself: What types of materials and products are being transported to keep sustaining (y)our lifestyle? What came here by ships? Trains? Automobiles? Airplanes? My spiritual teacher has a favorite saying, "The chicken doesnt just get on the table." ...And then, if feeling really contemplative while driving the 8 directions: How do we interact with those on the roads with us and the products/services they are transporting? What role have we played? (Consumer?) Are playing? (Producer?) Will play? (Investor?)
My commutes are typically longer because I live outside "the loops"...so I've got the time, lol. Ive experienced subways and travelling underground with limited visibility. Im thankful to have a vehicle and the opportunity to be Blessed by the colors of Nature. Now Im also thankful for Awareness. I can see the gas guzzlers of capitalism and their byproducts of pollution. I can also see enterprise and the bountyful manifestations of determined ideas. Selah.
And so as not to seem like a "Chakra Fairy" I must acknowledge that the highways require tolls and too often human life is the fee. Fairytales (Oh well, I guess I am a Chakra Fairy, lol.) call this Spirit a Troll... So, for protection and provision as needed I pay the Gatekeepers and Gaurdians of the Crossroads for safe passages. Selah.
