Psychic Attacks and Predators: What Is the Difference Between Linking/Bonding and Chaining/Binding?

Psychic Attacks, Bindings and Chainings

Links and bonds naturally occur or can be created between people when we establish close, connected relationships. Consider the bond between a parent and a child, two close friends or lovers that allows for empathic awareness of those we care deeply for. However, links and bonds can also become a tool for what is called chaining or binding. Chaining or binding is a strategic process used in order to ensure a psychic predator a more favorable environment to work in. It goes well beyond a link or bond as the ports or openings are used to give insight to the victim's wants and fears as well as their cognitive and emotive process. This means the predator has the heads up on any type of action that the victim is pursuing and the predator can use this insight to push the victim into scenarios that will help the predator take more control.

How is such a link or bond placed?

A link or bond is usually placed on a person's core essence or soul. It is placed in a spot that is most receptive to the psychic's talent or ability to influence the receptor. It is put in this position because it gives direct contact and infiltration past the shielding, and the natural defenses of the receptor.

Good shielding will keep these links or bonds from being placed on you. However, in the instance of psychic attack, the purpose of that attack would be to either weaken or drop your shielding to a point that the opening can be exploited and the link or bond can be placed.

The best way to accomplish this "psychic opening" is by using what I call "shock attacks". In short though, you need to beware of any individual that you know has psychic potential or ability that hits you with emotions or thoughts that change so suddenly and so quickly that you lose perspective about what it is that you are talking about in the first place.

How can you know if you have a link or bond placed upon you?

Links and Bonds are sometimes hard to find in oneself. Links are doubly more difficult because they are one way, initiator to receptor. Regardless, you can learn to find and cut given the correct mentality and technique.

Meditation and Psychic Attacks


If you are at a place where you are concerning yourself with links and bonds, I would assume you have some experience with meditation. The following meditation is one I gave to my students in the past (I no longer take on students), and does not have to be used but I find it effective in my own workings. Feel free to change the meditation or look into any other that you are more comfortable with.Comfort is very high on my list of meditation necessities however for some of you there will be other necessities that you use with your own methods..

Assume a position lying on your back. Clasp your hands together and think of utter darkness. Allow your mind to clear and once it is feel your heart beat and focus on it. Allow the rhythm of your breathing go into a stable, consistent pattern. Once you are in this position imagine a warm ball working its way up from your feet to your head. Focus on guiding the ball fluidly throughout your system. Imagine it as some kind of boat that is floating on your own energies. Once you hit something that is alien it becomes like rocks in a smoothly flowing river. These are the things that are not yours and most likely are links. Complete the scan going throughout your body and monitor where these items are placed. If you complete a total body scan and find nothing most likely you are energetically free and clean.

Once you have perfected this visual scan, you can do it faster and without having to lay down. If you are acting or more to the point reacting, in a way that seems unlike you usually do, it is an excellent time to make use of the scan. You may find that you are being manipulated or influenced rather than choosing on your own to act in that manner.

Removing A Link Or Bond

Now I know that I have a link or bond on me and I don't want it, what do I do?

Removing a link or bond is fairly simple when you know where they are. Return to your meditation and go back to where the ball encountered the foreign energy. There are a few ways to eradicate these links. One way is to burn them out. Imagine the ball of energy in your meditation increasing in intensity and heat - build this in your mind to the point that the other energies simply disintegrate. If this method doesn't work or if you want an alternative, you may choose to use that little ball you created as a knife. Visualize the ball "cutting" the energy off your core. Make sure you go to every place you felt these alien energies and repeat the process. Once you have finished do another quick scan making sure your energy is clear.

How do you prevent these links in the first place and keep them off after they have been removed?

Unfortunately, though taking off the links or bonds is easy, keeping them off is not. Dutiful shielding is a must. You need to be able to keep your shielding up at all times no matter the situation. There is no alternative for shielding unless you wish for others to have full access to stick links or whatever else on you. Even through your shielding may be very competent and strong there are cracks in any armor. It is doubtful that you will have one hundred percent protection from if indeed you are being targeted. Knowing your own energy effectively and thoroughly is a necessity and scanning yourself regularly will help keep you clear.

How To Become A Successful Fashion Runway Model - The Requirements

How To Be A Model

Facial structure, check. Thin, check. Tall, check. Great skin tone and quality, check.Runway fashion models are those models that catch all our eyes when we see runway previews online as well as on the television. They are stunning, striking and very sexy usually.

Becoming a runway fashion model does not happen overnight. It takes planning and setting long range goals at times.

Those top brands and designers such as Prada, Versace, Calvin Klein, Dolce & Gabbana, Moda, Gucci, Ralph Lauren, and Armani always are seeking new runway models.

So, how do you become a runway fashion model, or be considered for a position as a runway fashion model?

A desire to be the center of attention is certainly required, not minding the bright lights, glamor and wearing of high fashion clothing and accessories are all good starting points on the path of becoming a runway model.

It will require talent, hard work along with the right looks. These are the attributes needed to put those fashion items in the best light for those who design them.

Once you have those above things all in order, then you have to be prepared for what the designers will look at when they consider you for the position of a runway model.

They will focus on things such as your bone structure. Slim models are always in high demand, and this is simply because most designers clothing lines are made in very small and petite sizes. Of course this will exclude many of those looking to get into some areas of runway modeling. If you are considering using a modeling agency, you will have to keep in mind that most modeling agencies will have some very strict guidelines in regards to the sizes the model can wear. Many successful runway models are very young as this is the time that one will be at their slimmest.

Then comes the up and down look checking out your height. You have to be of a certain height to be considered by those high fashion designers. The height is not specific, however, the demand is for those considered tall.

Facial structure is another key element of focus that will be examined on attempting to start a career in high fashion runway modeling. Most successful models in the industry will have faces that are very symmetrical. Facial structure is very important as no matter where the model may be modeling, there will always be photos taken as well as videos.

Due to the high volume of photos and videos, your skin will be evaluated. To those in the runway modeling fashion industry, you need perfect, flawless skin. Not just on the face, but your whole body, as various parts of your body will always be showing as this is a highlight to the designer clothing or accessories that you are showing. By having that "perfect" skin, no makeup is needed to "appear" to have flawless skin. Makeup has a very bad habit of showing up under those very bright lights that are often harsh in nature.

Attitude is another requirement. Not just an attitude but the "right" attitude. This is a key essential for success in this industry. Being punctual is yet another area of focus. You want ant to be on time for all your fittings, rehearsals and such. The time slots are usually very narrow as there will be much going on with various models on a very tight schedule.

Runway modeling is a very frantic industry. In this type of environment, you have to have strong work ethics as well as discipline. Your ability to get along with a wide variety of people will be needed as well. You will find yourself traveling a lot and interacting with a large volume of different people of all various types.

Once you have all these key elements down and are ready to go, you will need to stop and create a portfolio. The portfolio is a very important factor in the career of a runway model. Your portfolio will need to contain head shots as well as photos of your "whole" self, full body shots. The portfolio is what modeling agencies will focus on when making the decision to hire you or not. Normally, one will need to work with a modeling agency, as these are the people that will get you bookings and allow you to get your foot in the door with some of the top designers. The main thing they will do is set up those very hard to get appointments so that you can be considered for employment with various design houses and scouts.

There are many categories of runway fashion modeling out there including swimwear, lingerie, seasonal fashions and much more. Many times you will not have the option to select just certain areas that you will model. The people in charge will want flexibility on your part to show off the various aspects of their designer lines.

With that all said and done, you are now ready for a career with those top brands and designers such as Prada, Versace, Calvin Klein, Dolce & Gabbana, Moda, Gucci, Ralph Lauren, and Armani.

Good luck and I hope this helps you with the question, "How To Be A Model!"

How To Make Barbecue Baked Venison (Deer)

Enjoy Barbecue Venison Without The BBQ Grill

Finished dish without the beansThis is a "manly" recipe! In other words, written by a man in man's terms. However, this does not detract from the ability of any woman to prepare this fantastic Barbecue Baked Venison recipe as well.

One of the many things that happens for those folks that go hunting is that they end up with those packages of deer meat in the freezer that seemingly accumulate over time. Of course even us men do know that we have to use up those packages before they become freezer burned!

Barbecuing is always a wonderful way of flavoring your venison. However, there are times that you can not fire up the barbecue grill because of the weather or simply that you don't own one at the present time. How does one satisfy that craving for some great barbecued venison? Well, this recipe answers that question. Using that wonderful device that is found in most kitchens around the world, the oven, you can make that barbecue dish without the barbecue grill!

If you have company over and a man is preparing this Barbecued Baked Venison recipe, then he can gather the other men around him and tell of his great adventure while hunting. He can mention long it took, the skill and dexterity along with wisdom that he used. The discussion can go into the type of hunting device he used as well. In my case it would be who gave me the venison to put in my freezer, as I don't hunt.


Cook Time 

Prep time: 45 min
Cook time: 1 hour 5 min
Ready in: 1 hour 50 min
Yields: 4 to 8 servings depending on size


 Ingredients

  • 3 to 4 cans cans of black beans
  • 1 3/4 cups barbecue sauce (use your favorite --- mine is Bull's Eye)
  • 1/2 cup coarsely chopped onion
  • 4 to 5 venison cuts (loin is always ideal)
  • 1- 8oz bag mozzarella cheese
  • Southern Flavor Deer & Wild Game Seasoning

Now for the how to!

  1. Start with at least three (3) cans of black beans. After opening the cans, pour them into a colander and rinse them off. By rinsing the beans, you take off any outside flavor that the packing company might have added.
  2. Add the 1 3/4 cups barbecue sauce to the rinsed black beans and mix evenly. Next add 1/2 cup coarsely chopped onion to the mixture. You can also add a clove of garlic or a diced green pepper if that's what your tastes are.
  3. Take the 4 or 5 cuts of venison (make them as even as possible) and liberally sprinkle Southern Flavor Deer & Wild Game Seasoning to all sides of each piece of meat.
  4. In a large skillet over medium/high heat, sear the meat to lock in the juices and flavor while the dish cooks in the oven. To sear the venison, you cook it on all sides just to the point where it changes color from red to grey/brown.
  5. In a large baking (a.k.a casserole) dish, spoon in an even layer of the black bean mixture to completely cover the bottom. Then, place the seared cuts of venison on top of mixture and space evenly apart, but not against the wall of the baking dish.
  6. Spoon out the remaining amount of the bean mixture over the top of the evenly spaced meat. Make sure the mixture gets between the meat and around the sides so that the meat is completely covered.
  7. Bake uncovered at 350 degrees F on the middle rack for one (1) hour.
  8. DON'T OVERCOOK - Real men do use the timer and oven mitts! Remove from oven after one (1) hour cooking time and turn off the oven.
  9. Evenly place grated mozzarella cheese on top of your barbecue venison. Put baking dish back into the oven that you just turned off, and let the cheese melt for five to seven minutes.
Your Barbecue Baked Venison is ready to serve!

You can also make this with any other wild game or pork, beef, or chicken.

What Is A Witch? Witchcraft, Spellwork and Magic

Magic is part of our spiritual life

A witch practicing magicIn the not too distant past I had to “explain myself” to a person who did not in any manner believe in Magic. My interaction with this person led me to compose this hub. Without giving specifics, the person pretty much simply said that she did not believe in Magic and nothing I could tell her would make her believe it worked.

Overall, she stated a very true fact. Magic will not work if you are not open to it to work. If you accept the possibility and still don't believe it, Magick can open some doors for you. A person who does not believe in the ways of Magic, or is too aggravated with those who do, such as us witches, will never actually have Magic change anything about their lives. Magic defined to me is Energy and Life, those things that live are filled with the energy of Life; whether it consciously knows, truly believes, or fully denies the possibility of Magic, the spirit that resides within the object is still affected by Magic.

With most people who are "non-magical" the problem arises from the idea that the world is binary along with the Christian brainwashing that goes on. The overall concept of the binary world is where only the Being who created and the Being who can destroy the creation use Magic to create change. Then it is only good when that Magic comes from the creator, and if it is bad, it has to come from the one who destroys. Much along the lines of many of the most political and widely accepted religious paths. This tends to work well to manipulate the masses.

For those on the various Pagan Paths there are two worlds that make up our lives. There is the material and physical world that simultaneously coexists with the spiritual world, which also is the world of energy, the world of Magic. When we take a walk through the mountains, we see the physical world with earth, rocks, trees, rivers, and the animals; however, we also see the spiritual concepts that these wonderful physical things are made of. It is normal to view this world and to coexist in this world; in fact, the minute we are born into this world we are completely opened to the True World. As we slowly learn more about the “Real World”, we do so fully missing of the natural abilities or instincts that we were born with. When this happens there is a disconnection within our being and a knowing that something is missing, however we cannot place our finger on it.

When a witch starts out on their path, they encounter a lot of information that has to be learned and put into practice, a lot of reading, much thinking, meditating, as well as writing that needs to be completed before you really began to comprehend just what you were doing. No matter how confusing this all seemed to us, we continued to move forward, being rewarded as we fine-tuned the basic skills that are used within the Craft. The abilities to raise power, work with the various correspondences for gemstones, herbs and candles are gained. Most of us have used the Runes, a pendulum or read the Tarot for additional abilities gained.

Overall for those of us who are a witch, well we had to take the time to think about this path and way of life and place effort and energy into it. We had to learn and master the skills, as well as work on achieving the correct philosophy and spiritual condition to make them work for us. Our education is equivalent to a person getting a degree in a vocational field. You have to set time aside, being dedicated, and continuing your education keeping an open mind and heart to new ideas, concepts, workings and more, adding to their knowledge base. In a nutshell you have to have the dedication, time and the desires.

Footnote: Yes, men as well as women can be a witch.

Those Trendy And Increasingly Popular 3D Tattoos!

3D Tattooing

3D Tattoos have become more and more popular.


Each tattoo is unique artwork! This new trend is not only popular with the younger generation but with those who are of older generations as well. Tattooing has been around for thousands of years, but has gotten much more sophisticated in recent years.

One has to remember that a tattoo is for life unless you are willing to spend a large sum of money and endure some pain to have it removed at a later point in time.

Most 3D designs are created in two dimensions, not three. The 3D effect, or illusion, comes from the shading of the artwork much like a painting, to create a depth look, or real life look. This is the most popular and easy method to have a 3D tattoo done for yourself. This is also the most common type of tattooing with the tattoo artists.

There is another level to 3D tattoos. These are actually raised tattoos, where various parts of the tattoo is physically raised, not just shaded. This is done by injecting hyaluronic acid under the skin where the tattoo has already been drawn. The solution can be applied to specific areas of the tattoo for enhancement. Using this method, a contoured 3D design is created where parts of the tattoo is raised above the normal level of the skin by approximately two millimeters.

The drawback of this method of 3D tattooing is that the hyaluronic acid will deplete itself over time, leaving you with simply a regular tattoo. The skin will gradually smooth out. The 3D effect of using the hyaluronic acid will last from six months to a year, but can vary among individuals and the way that their body metabolizes the hyualuronic acid.

Finding an artist who will use the hyaluronic acid method of tattooing is rather hard to find as well. This practice is not as common among the artists, and requires a lot of skill and training.

However you achieve that 3D tattoo, one thing is for certain, they are wonderful works of art, sure to provoke talk and looks, especially the sexy tattoos!

Tattoo Care

There will need to be care taken of any new tattoo work you have done as well. Below is a basic guideline.
On day one you will need to do the following:
  • Wash your hands thoroughly.
  • Gently remove the bandage, wetting under water or in the shower if needed due to it sticking.
  • Using warm water along with a very mild soap, gently wash the tattoo using your hand.
  • Remove the soap by rinsing the tattoo well with warm water.
  • Using a paper towel, gently pat the tattoo dry.
  • Using a fingertip or two, apply lotion or ointment to the tattoo, rubbing in well, but gently.
  • Use a paper towel to blot the excessive oil or ointment.
  • Note: Tattoo should not be greasy after this. Use small amounts of lotion or oil.
During the following days, 2 through 14, you will need to care for the tattoo as follows:
You will notice that a new tattoo will start peeling and flaking and small pieces of colored skin will be evident in the shedding. Your tattoo may not look as crisp as the first day or two and will even look hazy at times. No worries, as this is normal, and should mellow out in two to three weeks. On a daily basis, morning and night, continue to wash/dry the tattoo as instructed in day one. You will need to apply lotion or oil four to six times a day, always using the "small" amount and working it in well.


2019 and 2020 Hurricane Names - Atlantic Basin / Eastern North-Pacific

 2019 and 2010 Hurricane Names

As one who has endured quite a few Gulf of Mexico hurricanes, I always am keeping up and tracking the hurricanes and tropical storms.  Hurricane Ike and Hurricane Harvey were the two most memorable hurricanes that I went through. 

During the 2019 hurricane season as well as the 2020 hurricane season, from what I am seeing, being we are in what they call a 70 year cycle, we will see pretty much the same activity we saw in that past two hurricane seasons, the 2017 hurricane season as well as the 2018 hurricane season.

I am not one to predict geographic locations for where the hurricanes, tropical storms and/or tropical depressions will form or make landfall.  Nor do I project the strength of the hurricanes in advance.  There are plenty of others out there who predict and speculate and I will leave that all up to them.

I would suggest that if you are in a geographic area where tropical activity may occur, that you be prepared with an evacuation plan as well as an emergency / hurricane kit to help you survive during and after a hurricane or tropical storm event. The following link is showing what our hurricane and natural disaster emergency kit contains as well as a preparedness checklist.
