Angelic Forecast ~ #304


"Ultimately, we're too powerful," I say as the knowing tidal-waves through me. "Our souls are too beautiful, too magically creative. The seeds of our destruction must be placed within humanity itself."

"Bingo, mate of Dhuroth. As it's always been, it's all about breaking the human soul. For, if that heinous crime against life is achieved by the soulless usurpers, get ready for the rise of the machines."


Within, I shiver uncontrollably at that possible future. "Humanity as it has developed on Earth has been a bold experiment," I murmur, but loud enough for Reth to hear.

Reth nods, his expression solemn, deep. "The shining prize in the universe. Originally. And attacked from every angle by those who believe they will be replaced... eventually."

I sigh and swipe my hand through my hair. "The grand universe experiment is about to fail... if..." Scenes flash before my mind's eye, interrupting my despair.

"What is it?" Reth encourages moments later.

"The careful infusion of genetics from many races to see if the soul could hold such a being... in the flesh. It worked... but..."

TO BE CONTINUED...

ANGELIC FORECAST ~

The Right to Freedom and Dignity for ALL... the double standard revealed.

This week, the Divine blazes the cosmic spotlight on those in the public eye... those foul ones on the world stage... who grandstand and profess to believe in these 'wholly' rights. For, their time is coming to an end.

On the magickal, mystical front, this week the 'Mages of Ages Lost' whip and slice their mighty lightblades destorying one Viper-magician deception after another. In part, this will appear as more murky-brutal chaos on the world scene.

Yet, out of this is REVEALED the endgame of the black-hearted ones -- those who are behind the scenes running the show called the world. For now, their masks are being ripped away ever more swiftly.

Also, from this point forward, Divine Light will glare like an exploding sun on the movement called transhumanism -- which is the planned slaughter of the human soul.

On the personal front, this week begins a new period that is subtly unlike any humankind has experienced before. This is about the heart center to put it simply.

On a more complex note, compassion... acts of compassion... now rise as never before. Simultaneously, the lack of compassion and a greater brutality also occurs with greater frequency.

Expansion or constriction of the heart, that is Aquarian Age cosmic game for humanity. This powerful dynamic will likely be reflected in ALL of your personal relationships at this time.

It will be wise to be, and to stay, in touch with your compassionate side, as well as paying close attention to others around you. For, you must discern what they are choosing, expansion or constriction.

On the paranormal front, BIGFOOT rules, and the rise of Mars Awareness continues. Meanwhile, UFOs crowd the skies, and the alien agenda is sold by the Media Industrial Complex. That is, from a past forecast: "The message: the alien gods are here. Bow down, people of Earth."

BLURB: Patterson Bigfoot Film Enhanced ~ Film analyst M.K. Davis has run the Patterson–Gimlin film through his ultra high stabilization process and produced video of rather startling clarity. The camera work is less shaky and details of the creature, known as "Patty," are much clearer than in the original footage. Check it out here. ~coasttocoastam.com/pages/patterson-bigfoot-film-enhanced~

Is THIS Bigfoot? Virginia man who claims he first saw the Sasquatch 25 years ago uploads photos of new encounter - and says 'you be the judge' ~ A man has claimed he has new pictures of the elusive Bigfoot, taken this weekend on the eastern coast of the U.S.
Randy O'Neal, 40, posted the Sasquatch photographs online, which he says his father took on a camera phone this weekend near the Intracoastal Highway in Virginia.
He also suggests that the video could prove an encounter he had with the beast 25 years previously, which neither he nor his family have ever been able to prove. ~dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-2674805/Is-THIS-Bigfoot-Virginia-man-claims-saw-Sasquatch-25-years-ago-uploads-photos-new-encounter-says-judge.html~

HEADLINE-SNIPPET: Retired Marine claims he spent 17 years on Mars protecting 5 human colonies from Martians ~ The retired officer, known only as Captain Kaye, also claims to have served in a secret 'space fleet' run by a multinational organization. ~mirror.co.uk/news/weird-news/secret-alien-base-mars-marine-3745652~ 

On the land changes front, from the prior forecast: "supercharged weather and land-change events, some catastrophic, are in the near future. For, the Earth is energetically accelerating toward reinventing herself.

Also, the Sun, the Great Lion Star, is altering the solar system. The cosmic time is here. Prepare for massive changes on the planet down the road."

Further, earthquakes will shake, rattle, and roll the planet bigger and badder than before. Many of these quakes will be deeper than ever recorded.

On the AWAKENING front, the initiation begins. That is, the GOLDEN AWARENESS or the higher activation of humankind leaps to another level. This will appear as a greater wisdom, as knowledge that is unlearned yet KNOWN.

As well, this week is about a state of joy which transcends what is often called happiness. This joy of the spirit is from Mother Nature herself, and can only be experienced in a natural setting -- as in enjoying the flowers and trees, and any of the wild critters who enter your soul's space. Enjoy.

CHASING THEIR RACY DESTINY - Racy Nights 14


I'm so pleased to announce a new release!! CHASING THEIR RACY DESTINY is book 14 in my Racy Nights series!!

You can read more about the Racy Nights series on my WEBSITE, but for now, here is a brief overview for old and new Racy Nights fans alike...

Welcome to Racy Indiana, population 10,467 (give or take a few) and founded in 1898. Located in northwest Indiana, a branch of the Iroquois River runs through the town, and miles of wind turbines dot the landscape.

On Riverfront Drive you’ll find the Racy Animal Clinic, owned and operated by sexy vet Dustin Alexander, and where Annalise Kerr brought in her cat Shadow for a checkup. While backing out of the parking space after Dustin asked her out, she nearly collided with the unmarked police cruiser driven by Detective Chad Bristol.

Also now located on Riverfront Drive is Luke's Bar. It was in the original location on Market Street where gorgeous Luke Rodriguez spent most of his time, until he met Alexa Monahan, that is. Alexa moved to Racy from Manhattan, where she worked in a sex shop with Racy native Kari Tye.

If you walk along Riverfront toward downtown Racy, you’ll come to Market Street, the heart of Racy’s historic district. The buildings here were all original, and the business owners lovingly maintained them. They're nearly restored now after an EF3 tornado destroyed most of them last May.

Kari had been gone for fifteen years, but last October she returned. She and Alexa opened Tye Me Up just before Christmas, Racy’s first and only sex shop, out on Lawnview Drive.

Noah Wells, a research and development specialist at Notus Power, the company that owns and operates the wind turbines just outside of Racy, helped keep Kari safe from trouble that followed her home. And what he couldn't accomplish, sexy Adison Kincaid, head of security at Notus, certainly did.

As for Alexa, she not only has Luke looking after her, but also heroic Chase Taylor, the Racy Building Commissioner. He’s the reason Kari and Alexa were able to open their shop in the once-beautiful century home that had been scheduled for demolition. Now restored to its former majesty, the upstairs of the house is living quarters for Alexa and her Doms, while the shop is on the main floor.

Lawnview Drive is now the site of multiple homes being built to resemble Tye Me Up. They'll each contain an upscale shop to make this area of Racy the hottest new shopping district.

Around the corner from Market Street is Main Street, where you’ll find the courthouse and City Hall. J Lo lookalike Marisol Santiago is a court reporter who got more than she bargained for when she became accidentally involved again with old boyfriend Rafe Rodriguez, and Ellis McCree, the city building inspector, at the same time. Rafe is Luke’s older brother, and Ellis is cousin to Maddox McCree, who owns and operates the local BDSM club out of his mansion on Birch Lane.

Maddox’s mysterious and slightly shady past was the subject of much speculation among Racy’s residents, until psychologist Julie Carruthers attended a surprise birthday party for Alexa at Maddox’s club and chipped a hole in the armor surrounding Maddox.

Things really got interesting inside City Hall. Former mayor Bernie Crumb was indicted on charges of murder, among other things, and sexy Dom Zach Kincaid is now Racy's mayor. Former IT department head Gina Santori keeps Zach on his toes, and she keeps detective Harrison Kelly happy as well, serving as a sub to both men. She also is part of Giolanna Design Solutions, the company she, Annalise, and Olivia Kelly started last summer.

If you circle around Main Street over to Ash Lane and head for the river, you’ll eventually wind up back on Riverfront, where The Fit Bod, Racy’s gym, stands in stark contrast to the quaint old buildings in and around that area. It’s a bold, modern design that hunky Evan Rydell designed and co-owns with Thayer Denning. Evan and Thayer don’t mind sharing sub Cherilyn Barker, who now works alongside them.

And Olivia Kelly, Harrison’s sister and Cherilyn’s friend, had plenty to do outside being part of Giolanna Design Solutions once she met Racy Fire Chief Cameron Sinclair and Racy Fire Inspector Storm Jamison. Talk about things heating up!

So come on in and take a stroll through Racy with its spunky heroines and drop-dead gorgeous heroes. This is small town America, and Racy residents gossip as much as anyone, but when the crap hits the fan, they’re there for each other. From ex-Doms and serial killers, to ex-wives and AWOL soldiers, and all the way to tornadoes and arsonists, Racy has its share of trouble, but our heroes are on hand to make sure no harm comes to their heroines.

BLURB for CHASING THEIR RACY DESTINY:

[Siren Ménage Everlasting:Erotic Consensual BDSM Ménage a Trois Romance, M/F/M, spanking, paddling, cropping, flogging, forced-seduction role-play, sex toys, HEA]

When NSSL researcher Kenna Bowman comes to Racy to study the weather in a partnership with Notus, she clashes with Doms and storm chasers Dale Sinclair and Tim Malloy. She thinks they’re cowboys who don’t understand the science behind meteorology, and they think she’s a lab rat who has no clue what it’s like out in the field.

When she’s forced to hide in their basement during a surprise storm, she also spends the night with both men. Thunder and lightning aren’t the only things they study.

Tim and Dale have long since given up on finding the right woman, until they meet Kenna. But Kenna had her heart broken years ago and is afraid to give it away again.

When a series of misunderstandings and lies leads Kenna to believe Tim and Dale betrayed her, she flees Racy, only to be pursued by the men, who brave a tornado to win her love.

Wednesday's Words for June 25, 2014

Do you believe in Karma?

One doesn’t need to be a Buddhist in order to put credence to this principle. Basically and simply stated, Karma, as it is defined in that ancient Indian religion says that we are the heirs of our own actions.

You see that word written and hear it spoken a great deal these days. As it’s used today, you wouldn’t be remiss if you assumed that Karma equals payback. Whether for good or ill—and it’s used for both results—as Karma is defined by popular culture today, it’s widely held that people inherit either the rewards or punishments for their own actions, in the due course of their current lives.

One of the best things about being nearly 60 is that I have a lot of years that I can look back on, and enough experience that I can expound on certain things, and one of those things is the existence of Karma as it is popularly used.

I can tell you with a fair bit of certainty that Karma is a force to be reckoned with. Over the course of my life, I have encountered people who, for one reason or another, have set out to purposely harm others. Some of these people—not all, but certainly some—have directed their efforts against me.

I can completely understand that because, despite all appearances to the contrary, I am not an easy person to like, or even to get along with. We all have personal, emotional baggage and mine, quite frankly, gets the best of me sometimes.

I’ve been spending a few good afternoons in hindsight lately, and I can definitely say that there were times when I was the recipient of ill will and actions, that I had it coming. But there were also times when I didn’t earn whatever it was someone did or said against me. In response to many of those times, not surprisingly, the perpetrator later—sometimes within a year or two, and sometimes a fair bit longer—received a big slab of bad Karma to choke down.

If you can wrap your head around this concept, it could quite handily alleviate a great deal of stress from your life. You don’t need to worry about how you’re going to pay so-and-so back when they’ve done you wrong. After all, revenge really is a double-edged sword. Why risk even more crap raining down on your personal parade? You can get caught up in getting even, and before you know it, you have your own engraved, silver-plated fork for your regular consumption of Karma cake.

No, friends, it’s far better to take a few moments after these instances and bind your wounds. And then adopt that well known expression of Mr. T from the past century. Yes, after the binding of the wounds, take time to look upon the one who wounded you, and pity the fool—resting confident that Karma will come to visit them sooner or later.

Spend what time you can turning away from what has hurt you and instead focus on doing something for someone else. Make a difference, using whatever gifts you’ve been given, and give no more thought to “getting even” or paying someone back. Not only will you feel better, you’ll be earning yourself good Karma, which can end up being a very valuable commodity for you indeed.

Karma is real, and it will take care of things for you. However, if you’re someone who eschews the trends of pop culture, preferring to cling to traditional mores and concepts, take heart. You too can trust in the inevitability of Karma.

Or, as it is also known, the Biblical principle of sowing and reaping.

Love,
Morgan

Angelic Forecast ~ #303

 
Meanwhile, I take a sip of my juice to counter my melancholy. "Yeah, I don't understand why those of us who are warriors are not allowed to simply take the dark-siders out, send them onto their hellish reward."

Reth regards me silently for several moments. His fingers slide up and down the glass, his gaze potent yet enigmatic. "That could be changing," he offers, then takes another swallow.

I remain silent, contemplating his words. "If only..." I finally utter.


"I have recently met with those who are known as the Benevolents. They have come to realize more direct action must be taken against the black-soul usurpers of Earth." Bear like, Reth lifts a handful of berries to his mouth and devours them.

"Yes... the dark-side usurpers. Want to tell me more?" I ask, then sip on my juice -- one eye on Reth.

"Earth humanity as a whole has been kept in a deep, deep trance for centuries. The building systems of false consciousness, of a false worldwide reality, it's all about dehumanizing humankind... why?" Reth raises his brows.

"Ultimately, we're too powerful," I say as the knowing tidal-waves through me. "Our souls are too beautiful, too magically creative. The seeds of our destruction must be placed within humanity itself."

"Bingo, mate of Dhuroth. As it's always been, it's all about breaking the human soul. For, if that heinous crime against life is achieved by the soulless usurpers, get ready for the rise of the machines."

TO BE CONTINUED...
~~~~~~


ANGELIC FORECAST ~

The theme this week: The Dark-side Controllers Fight to Monopolize the Megaphone of Reality... for, worldwide, they are losing all support.

On the land changes front, supercharged weather and land-change events, some catastrophic, are in the near future. For, the Earth is energetically accelerating toward reinventing herself.

Also, the Sun, the Great Lion Star, is altering the solar system. The cosmic time is here. Prepare for massive changes on the planet down the road.

HEADLINE-SNIPPET: "Seismic flare-ups leave scientists searching for answers: But volcanoes seem to be waking up all across the chain. Shishaldin, Cleveland and Veniaminoff in the eastern and central Aleutians have been on alert for months now..." 

HEADLINE-SNIPPET: "World’s largest active volcano shows signs of life in Hawaii ~ Reuters | The world’s largest active volcano, has rumbled back to life in Hawaii."

On the magickal, mystical front, this week the 'Mages of Ages Lost' ruthlessly cut and swipe through the blackest sorcery of the Viper magicians. For now, their mighty lightblades sling this evil mud back onto those who have perpetuated this soulless conjuring. Around these black-hearted Vipers grows a darkness that will be witnessed more and more by ALL.

The witnessing... this will be key to how the world's future is shaped, rearranged, and universally changed. Because destiny will be in the hands of those who are on the heart-centered path.

On the personal front, again, a challenging week ahead for many of us as more CHANGES barrel down upon us. However, opportunity also shines bright as the full moon. This will likely be by making key connections with others... those who are in our lives now... as well as those we meet for the first time. For, 'good-good vibe' connections are 'the path' in the Aquarian Age.

Further, this week is about organizing one part of your life. This 'could' be around finances, or simply how you spend your energy.

On the paranormal front, this week, the Other Side, as it's known, will initiate contact. That is, more of us will receive communications from loved ones who have passed over. Or, our pets on the other side will show up in etheric form, and/or in our dreams.

This 'contact' is crucial at this point in time. For, the merging of the other-side dimension with the Earth plane now accelerates. Since ALL is frequency-based, this will assist in bringing about a new, brighter ascension for every being.

However, CONTACT can be a double-edged sword. Take precautions to only allow this type of contact with loved ones, with higher beings who have your best interests at heart. For, the lower entities are on the loose.

Further, on a fun-serious note: HEADLINE-SNIPPET: "Aloha, aliens: Landing pad for extra terrestrials in Kalapana ~ A UFO landing pad and star visitor sanctuary is set to be dedicated Friday on land accreted by the 1983 lava flow fronting Uncle Robert’s Kawa Bar in Kalapana. — Hawaii Tribune Herald"

On the AWAKENING front, humanity is now being bombarded by the higher spiritual energies, especially around becoming a true 'free spirit'. For, here it comes, this deep-soul REALIZATION: there is no limit to freedom when all voices are heard.

As well, the overall AWAKENING of humankind continues to firestorm across the world. This can be observed most easily in how often the people -- all over the planet -- refuse to be corralled by 'societal programming'.

Wednesday's Words for June 18, 2014

I hope the dads among us all had a happy Father’s Day on Sunday. Too often in our society, fathers, just as much as mothers, are under appreciated.

We expect a lot from fathers. Some of these expectations hark back to the days when a woman married a man based on his ability to provide basic needs and protection for her and the children she would bear him. In those days the man was the undisputed king of his home, not just by tradition, but by law. As much as we woman chafe at that concept in today’s modern times, historically speaking, it really was the way society was organized to provide for the survival of the species.

In today’s world, we haven’t lost all of those old expectations, no matter what we would like to believe. In fact, not only have we kept several of those prerequisites as a society, we’ve added new ones, too, because what is “expected” has changed over time. The combination of the two, in my opinion, make the job of being a father a lot more difficult than it ever used to be.

Even in this enlightened age, we still mostly expect fathers to be the main breadwinners of the family. Women work outside the home, of course they do. They are equal home-owners and decision makers by today’s standards. Yet still, women consider the question, when they become mothers, of whether to go back to work after the maternity leave has ended, or to give up the job and be a stay at home mom, at least until the children go to school. There’s no right answer to that question, as women are individuals with individual aspirations. But we women all do think over which option is best for us.

By and large, the fathers aren’t given that choice at all. They are expected to continue to work, no matter what.

We expect fathers to protect our children from harm, even though that expectation, in today’s world, isn’t always realistic. Neither are fathers allowed the same tools they once had to ensure the safety of their families. There are no more castles, or moats; fathers may no longer lock their children in their rooms to keep the dangerous elements of society away from them. In an age when children are seeking and being granted rights that quite frankly they are sometimes far too young to truly understand, we have made the father’s job of protecting his family very difficult.

And yet despite all these things, today’s father has adapted. You don’t see fathers with picket signs bemoaning how hard it is to do what we ask of them. You see them, instead, coaching baseball and soccer for their sons and their daughters. You see them driving kids to games and lessons, playing at the park with their children, sitting at the kitchen table helping their kids with math, or science projects. You see today’s fathers being an integral part of their children’s lives.

Fathers take an active interest in their children’s educations, teach them how to drive, fix broken toys and sometimes, do their best to patch up broken dreams. Fathers are there in the night when the bogey man is near, and they lend a solid shoulder to cry on when the tough stuff of life hits.

They never stop being fathers, either. When their children are grown and have children of their own, they are still there, with advice and a hug, stalwart in their role.

Mothers are good at nurturing in a gentle way. Fathers are good at setting the limits, and loving you even when you overstep those bounds.

So fathers, here’s to you, and the countless selfless acts you perform for you families, doing what you do because it’s the right thing to do—and not ever once considering doing it any other way.

You’ll say that’s nothing special. But the rest if us know, that’s what being a hero is all about.

Love,
Morgan

Angelic Forecast ~ #302

 
"You look like a bear at his leisure," I say, approaching. A bit weariness overtakes me as I seat myself... from the workout, and from missing my lion man.

"Long years of practice," Reth banters. "Truth is I need a break. My shifter abilities have suffered of late."

"These times are challenging to the say the least," I return, pouring out the yummy juice for both of us. "Want some berries?" I drily tease.

"Huckleberries are my favorite. But those are on Earth." Reth gives me a big sloppy grin.


"Earth," I murmur. "Earth is such a beautiful garden planet." Sadness overtakes me. "I just wish it wasn't being destroyed by the dark powers that be."

"That will end shortly. In the grand scheme of things, that is. Not overnight," Reth cautions. In a remarkably short time he downs his juice, then pours out another glass, and drinks in slow swallows.

Meanwhile, I take a sip of my juice to counter my melancholy. "Yeah, I don't understand why those of us who are warriors are not allowed to simply take the dark-siders out, send them onto their hellish reward."

Reth regards me silently for several moments. His fingers slide up and down the glass, his gaze potent yet enigmatic. "That could be changing," he offers, then takes another swallow.

I remain silent, contemplating his words. "If only..." I finally utter.

ANGELIC FORECAST ~

This week, there's a new cosmic game in town on Earth. Now, star power enhances and emboldens those of us who are ready to receive this high level of energy.

In opposition to Star Power, the Viper elite spin their lies and deception. They hide behind their shroud curtains in fear, knowing 'Dorothy and Toto' archetypes are exposing their rule-the-world machinations.

As never before, their endgame-plan is to pit the people against each other, and to keep stirring the cauldron of war. War, and more war.

On the AWAKENING front, on the wings of the soul BEAUTY rises. Not beauty as decreed by the behind-the-scenes, soul-decrepit social engineers of our society. Or beauty as defined and promoted by movies and the Media Industrial Complex. No, this is the true BEAUTY which lives within, and can only be experienced and expressed by each one of us.

For, this is the beauty of the rose from bud to bloom -- unfolding magnificently, memorably, and magically.

On the magickal, mystical front, this week the 'Mages of Ages Lost' reveal another layer of corruption for ALL to witness. With cyclone-whirling blades they uncover more of the Vipers who lead the world into darkness -- rather than toward the starlight that is humankind.

As these so-called leaders fall from grace... as their minions become ever more brutal, the world at large reels teetering on the brink of the blackest abyss. For, this is the final call, and this question must be answered: whom do you serve?

Those who would enslave, or those who would free humanity.

On the personal front, this week watch out for the ever-quickening pace around you. If you do not metaphorically and figuratively step out of the way, you could get trampled -- or run over. For, at this time, panic will seize many, and they won't care who is in their way.

As much as possible, keep yourself centered and heart-centered, and stay away from the maddening crowds. The time has come to look for ways to cocoon yourself, and your loved ones. And to become part of your local community as much as possible... if possible.

As well, there should be a shining opportunity coming your way this week. Grab it with both hands, but beware of those who are the bigtime scammers.

On the paranormal front, an explosion of more 'proof' happens from this point forward, especially in the UFO arena. While it remains difficult to know if these are deep black project craft -- or from Earth's breakaway civilization -- or from OUT THERE... or from other-race colonies established on/in Earth and beneath the oceans... or are inter-dimensional travelers... or??? ... nevertheless, sightings will continue to escalate.

Also, the propaganda machine cranks up again about the alien progenitors of humanity. For Project Blue Beam is still on the one-world order's table.

From a previous 2013 forecast: "On the dark side, Project Blue Beam is being brought forth by the 'new world order crowd' at an accelerated pace. This, in preparation to frighten humanity into compliance, and obedience. From a past forecast: "The message: the alien gods are here. Bow down, people of Earth."

On the land changes front, this week, it's all about the underground volcanoes.

HEADLINE-SNIPPET: Hidden Volcanoes Melt Antarctic Glaciers From Below
By Stephanie Pappas, Live Science Contributor
6/10/2014
Antarctica is a land of ice. But dive below the West Antarctic Ice Sheet, and you'll find fire as well, in the form of subglacial volcanoes.
Now, a new study finds that these subglacial volcanoes and other geothermal "hotspots" are contributing to the melting of Thwaites Glacier, a major river of ice that flows into Antarctica's Pine Island Bay. ~accuweather.com/en/home-garden-articles/earth-you/hidden-volcanoes-melt-antarcti/28460042

ALSO... "researcher Mitch Battros ~earthchangesmedia.com~ talked about underground volcanoes melting the Antarctic ice caps (related article) and how natural cyclical events are behind weather changes." ~coasttocoastam.com/show/2014/06/14~

Life With Baby Doll: Father’s Day Reflections 2014

WARNING:  The links contained within this post will take you to sites with content for mature readers only.  However, this post is suitable for a PG audience.

Children
My Children
My greatest accomplishment as a transgender man is my family.  Even though I am an author and activist, I will always be a partner and father first.  As Baby Doll and I watch our two children grow we are not only proud of their individuality, but of the fact that they represent our love and commitment to each other.  While we have shared other Father’s Days together, today marks our first since coming out in September, 2013.
Both John and I came from broken homes, raised only by our mothers. John suffered abuses from both a biological and step-father. I did not have a father. Yes, there was man who married my mother.  His name is listed on my birth certificate.  I watched him abuse myself and mother, until I left home at the age of seventeen.  He died in 2012, very bitter and alone.  Not only did he deny me as his son, but he denied the existence of his grandchildren.  The day I left home, I remember vowing that I would break the cycle of abuse.
In early 1997, John and I decided to start a family.  We wanted biological children.  At the time, I still had the reproductive organs necessary to carry a child.  Our son was conceived through artificial insemination.  I gave birth to him in August, 1997 through C-section.  In 2000, our daughter was born through the same process.
I am not the first transgender man who has given birth to children, with the most notable being  Thomas Beatie.   Society has labeled pregnancy and birth as a gender specific process.  My gender identity is male.  I am their father.  They carry a part of my DNA. However, the most important thing they carry is my love.  There have been critics who have questioned the decisions that John and I made.  Even though our children were conceived through artificial insemination, and I did not endure a long and painful labor, we still love them dearly.
John was with me for both births, holding my hand on the operating table. Each time I heard their first cries, I remember feeling a strong sense of fatherly love and protection towards the little lives who were now dependent on my partner and I for their care.  We’ve not only heard our children’s first cries, but we have been there through many milestones in their lives.  I am proud of both of my children, as I see them growing into young adults. My son will turn seventeen this year, and my daughter fourteen.
Our children are reminders of faith, hope, and love.  They are new beginnings.  The values that John and I have taught them, will hopefully be carried on in their generation.  Then, passed to their children.  I find it amusing to watch each of them, because I see so much of John and I reflected back.  Each carries our strengths and our weakness, and they use them in their own individuality.  The cycle of abuse has now become a circle of love.
With each Father’s Day that passes, I am humbled to have been given a chance to be their father.  They have brought great joy to the lives of both John and I.  I am proud to call them my children.
John would and I would like to wish all the fathers out there a Happy Father’s Day!
The Life With Baby Doll series is a free weekly MM romance read on this Website that shares my relationship with John Jericho.
To learn more about John and I visit: Life With Baby Doll.  Due to the increasing popularity of the Life With Baby Doll series, I have created the permanent tab on my Website that contains information concerning our intense and passionate love affair as partners.
I enjoy hearing from all of my readers, and look forward to your e-mails. Remember Love is Love…Period.

Wednesday's Words for June 11, 2014

Some people suffer a loss, and that loss changes them irrevocably. And for them, the answer—the only answer—is to make that loss count for something.

The death of a child is a terrible thing—the greatest tragedy a parent can suffer. Like other horrendous life traumas, that loss is often far-reaching and life altering. Many find solace and closure by dedicating themselves to doing good work in the name of the one they’ve lost.

 For some people, that dedication leads them to prominence. In their efforts to do what they can to see to it no other parent has to walk their path, they make a positive difference, a difference that touches many.

On May 3rd, 1980, a 13 year old girl, Cari Lightner, was killed in a hit and run accident in Fair Oaks, California. The driver of the vehicle was a repeat offender of driving under the influence. Cari’s mother, Candy Lightner’s response to the death of her daughter and the light sentence given her killer, prompted her to begin an organization, Mothers Against Drunk Drivers—later changed to Mothers Against Drunk Driving—MADD. This organization, in my opinion, is why today, in our society, driving drunk is such a taboo. When I was a teen, the crime wasn’t taken all that seriously, either by society, or through it, by the courts. Now, for the most part, those who drink and drive become pariahs.

In July of 1981, on the other side of the country, in Hollywood Florida, 6 year old Adam Walsh was abducted from a department store. He was never seen alive again.

The murder of this young child drove his father, John Walsh, to become an advocate for the victims of violent crimes. He rose to national prominence as the host of America’s Most Wanted. As a result of this case, and others, the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children was formed, and the U. S. Congress passed the Adam Walsh Child Protection and Safety Act.

These are two well known examples of bereaved parents taking positive action so that the pain they endured, and the lives of their young children were not meaningless.

But not everyone is given to this kind of service; not everyone is blessed with the same gifts. We’re all different, and how we process our life events can be as varied as our personalities. There is no “should” here, no expectations as to how one ought to deal with devastating personal loss.

Some folks never get over the loss itself. Some can never leave the grieving behind. Actually, the truth for all of us is that the death of a child leaves a hole in the parents’ hearts that will never—can never—be filled. There is no “getting over” it. There are ways of coping, and while we continue on living our lives, getting up each day, going to bed each night, going through the motions—life is never the same for us.

But then, life never stays the same for anyone, even those who’ve never endured such a heavy tragedy. We’re not, any of us, exactly the same people we were twenty years ago, or even ten years ago. Sometimes the changes in us are subtle. Sometimes we mellow, and sometimes our inner curmudgeon becomes more of a visible part of our personalities.

Life itself changes us, and really, that is the purpose of it. We are not born to party. We are not born to be miserable. We are born, period. What we do as we travel this individual path we’re each of us on is the formula for the alchemy of our own existence. If we’re lucky, then along the way, we learn, we love, and we laugh. We know sorrow, of course, everyone does, but hopefully we know joy, too. We help others, and learn to accept help in return. We come to appreciate small victories and large ones alike, and maybe we understand that each is valuable, each has its place in the grand scheme of things.

Hopefully, we evolve and use our talents, and the seeds of greatness within us and create a beautiful, abundant garden with them.

Our gardens won’t be the same—but that’s what makes them so breathtaking and so very worthwhile.

Love,
Morgan

New Release - CAPTIVATING THEIR RACY HEROES - Racy Nights 13


I'm so pleased to announce a new release!! CAPTIVATING HER RACY HEROES is book 13 in my Racy Nights series!!

You can read more about the Racy Nights series on my WEBSITE, but for now, here is a brief overview for old and new Racy Nights fans alike...

Welcome to Racy Indiana, population 10,467 (give or take a few) and founded in 1898. Located in northwest Indiana, a branch of the Iroquois River runs through the town, and miles of wind turbines dot the landscape.

On Riverfront Drive you’ll find the Racy Animal Clinic, owned and operated by sexy vet Dustin Alexander, and where Annalise Kerr brought in her cat Shadow for a checkup. While backing out of the parking space after Dustin asked her out, she nearly collided with the unmarked police cruiser driven by Detective Chad Bristol.

Also now located on Riverfront Drive is Luke's Bar. It was in the original location on Market Street where gorgeous Luke Rodriguez spent most of his time, until he met Alexa Monahan, that is. Alexa moved to Racy from Manhattan, where she worked in a sex shop with Racy native Kari Tye.

If you walk along Riverfront toward downtown Racy, you’ll come to Market Street, the heart of Racy’s historic district. The buildings here were all original, and the business owners lovingly maintained them. They're nearly restored now after an EF3 tornado destroyed most of them last May.

Kari had been gone for fifteen years, but last October she returned. She and Alexa opened Tye Me Up just before Christmas, Racy’s first and only sex shop, out on Lawnview Drive.

Noah Wells, a research and development specialist at Notus Power, the company that owns and operates the wind turbines just outside of Racy, helped keep Kari safe from trouble that followed her home. And what he couldn't accomplish, sexy Adison Kincaid, head of security at Notus, certainly did.

As for Alexa, she not only has Luke looking after her, but also heroic Chase Taylor, the Racy Building Commissioner. He’s the reason Kari and Alexa were able to open their shop in the once-beautiful century home that had been scheduled for demolition. Now restored to its former majesty, the upstairs of the house is living quarters for Alexa and her Doms, while the shop is on the main floor.

Lawnview Drive is now the site of multiple homes being built to resemble Tye Me Up. They'll each contain an upscale shop to make this area of Racy the hottest new shopping district.

Around the corner from Market Street is Main Street, where you’ll find the courthouse and City Hall. J Lo lookalike Marisol Santiago is a court reporter who got more than she bargained for when she became accidentally involved again with old boyfriend Rafe Rodriguez, and Ellis McCree, the city building inspector, at the same time. Rafe is Luke’s older brother, and Ellis is cousin to Maddox McCree, who owns and operates the local BDSM club out of his mansion on Birch Lane.

Maddox’s mysterious and slightly shady past was the subject of much speculation among Racy’s residents, until psychologist Julie Carruthers attended a surprise birthday party for Alexa at Maddox’s club and chipped a hole in the armor surrounding Maddox.

Things really got interesting inside City Hall. Former mayor Bernie Crumb was indicted on charges of murder, among other things, and sexy Dom Zach Kincaid is now Racy's mayor. Former IT department head Gina Santori keeps Zach on his toes, and she keeps detective Harrison Kelly happy as well, serving as a sub to both men. She also is part of Giolanna Design Solutions, the company she, Annalise, and Olivia Kelly started last summer.

If you circle around Main Street over to Ash Lane and head for the river, you’ll eventually wind up back on Riverfront, where The Fit Bod, Racy’s gym, stands in stark contrast to the quaint old buildings in and around that area. It’s a bold, modern design that hunky Evan Rydell designed and co-owns with Thayer Denning. Evan and Thayer don’t mind sharing sub Cherilyn Barker, who now works alongside them.

And Olivia Kelly, Harrison’s sister and Cherilyn’s friend, had plenty to do outside being part of Giolanna Design Solutions once she met Racy Fire Chief Cameron Sinclair and Racy Fire Inspector Storm Jamison. Talk about things heating up!

So come on in and take a stroll through Racy with its spunky heroines and drop-dead gorgeous heroes. This is small town America, and Racy residents gossip as much as anyone, but when the crap hits the fan, they’re there for each other. From ex-Doms and serial killers, to ex-wives and AWOL soldiers, and all the way to tornadoes and arsonists, Racy has its share of trouble, but our heroes are on hand to make sure no harm comes to their heroines.

BLURB for CAPTIVATING HER RACY HEROES:

[Siren Ménage Everlasting: Erotic Consensual BDSM Ménage a Trois Romance, M/F/M, spanking, paddling, cropping, sex toys, HEA]
When submissive Brynn Winston takes a job at Busler’s department store, trouble follows her, but she’s not the only target in Racy. Brynn knew Racy detective Sean Brennan and BDSM club owner Maddox McCree during their unsavory days in Chicago, and neither man is happy to see her living and working in Racy.

But all three have more trouble than they realize when a man they knew in Chicago who was once accused of rape and murder is spotted in Racy. As Brynn works to convince Sean and Maddox that she’s as changed as they are, and that this man is a real threat to them, Doms Ryder Dayton and Hugh Sinclair fall hard and fast for her.

As Ryder and Hugh fight to exonerate Brynn from the rumors about her past associations, they end up as pawns in a killer’s deadly game of cat and mouse, and soon realize Brynn’s past isn’t the real danger. It’s her present.



Angelic Forecast ~ #301


Dhuroth's hesitation answers my question. "I have encountered new enemies during the negotiations. They are dangerous and will harm anyone close to me. You must take every care, my beloved Sh’raka."

"Yes," I say as my heart flutters unhappily and feels as though it wants to desert my body. "I am with you in spirit, my lion man."

"I will come to you tonight in spirit body..." Suddenly, Dhuroth ends the transmission.


Knowing it's because he must attend to serious matters, I sigh and spin toward Reth, who has made himself at home on a chaise beneath a huge banyon-like tree.

Already, our household staff has brought juice drinks and a breakfast type of meal. Silently, I thank them, sending vibes of appreciation.

"Come talk with me," Reth urges, his manner sincere, open.

"You look like a bear at his leisure," I say, approaching. A bit weariness overtakes me as I seat myself... from the workout, and from missing my lion man.

"Long years of practice," Reth banters. "Truth is I need a break. My shifter abilities have suffered of late."

"These times are challenging to the say the least," I return, pouring out the yummy juice for both of us. "Want some berries?" I drily tease.

"Huckleberries are my favorite. But those are on Earth." Reth gives me a big sloppy grin.

TO BE CONTINUED...
~~~~~~


ANGELIC FORECAST ~

Theme: Superstorm after superstorm, the weather, world events, and life itself.

On the land changes front, major sunstorms or CMEs [coronal mass ejections] are likely within the next couple of months. Stay alert.

Also, this prior forecast continues: "the devastation from superstorm weather events increases at this point in time. Worldwide: more massive flooding, more raging firestorms, miles long mudslides, disappearing coastlines, erupting volcanoes, ever larger earthquakes -- especially swarms.

Plus, there will likely be more large-scale evacuations across the planet as the year progresses."

As well, the major land rise begins. This will take place across the planet, and over the next several years will be noticeable in the Gulf of Mexico. This means, unless the dark-side controllers destroy the ancient civilization now covered by water, the evidence will become obvious to ALL.

This week, look for more unusual weather systems worldwide, especially over the oceans. 

On the AWAKENING front, as world events cascade and collide, this will serve the people worldwide as a GIANT, FAST-ACTING AWAKENING. Now, those who have been born on Earth to protect Mother earth, to protect and encourage the human spirit, are being spiritually activated as never before.

This means, in part, more of the people rear up and race forward as activists. *Eventually* through their human force and diligent work, they will trample the enemies of planet Earth.

On the magickal, mystical front, a vitally important week ahead as the 'Mages of Ages Lost' remove the black-sorcery curtain from one section of the Beast Construct -- as designed by the Viper-elite puppet masters. With mighty lightblades, the Mages sweep aside this frequency shroud more each week, revealing the true nature of our precious world.

Simultaneously, the Music-Media Industrial Complex will be intro-ing a new sound as the next pop sensation. This dark-soul vibe is designed to further zombify the younger generation, as well as cause a state of mass confusion in the older generation. It's all about compliance at this point.

On the personal front, a wild week ahead for some of us, and it may be like herding cats. This will be due to expected and unexpected CHANGES. Roll with the punches, unless you truly need to punch back, then you must take action for the sake of yourself and everyone involved.

Also, this is a time of extreme challenge that will require certain key decisions to be made. For now, it's all about creating 'your' future, and 'the' future of our world.

This week, there 'could' be a sabotage incident. Watch your backsides.

On the paranormal front, another large week, where high strangeness is in charge. As the Media Industrial Complex continues to orchestrate 'cultural reality', thus, the real truth about paranormal/supernatural will continue to be heavily censored.

This, as tidal of waves of proof inundate society as a whole. Less and less, will the people buy into this sinister orchestration against the paranormal. For, the worlds of the shaman and mystic are destined to become everyone's reality.


THIS FORECAST IS CONTINUED AT *TITLE MAGIC* ~titlemagic.blogspot.com~

Life With Baby Doll: Two Gay Men Navigating Life

WARNING:  The links contained within this post will take you to sites with content for mature readers only.  However, this post is suitable for a PG audience.

Andrew and John Website
Since my Life With Baby Doll series began in July, 2013, I have received e-mails from readers who enjoy it not only for the romance I share with John, but for my real life updates. While I am a ManLove erotic romance writer, I’m also an LGBTQ rights activist. There are fans who read the series for the MM romance, and others who want to hear about my experiences as a gay transgender man. There are even some who leave their opinions in comments that I like to refer to as, “things one should never say to a transgender man, or a LGBTQ person in general.”  I believe that everyone has a right to their own opinions, and mine is that hate e-mails and comments are not addressed.
I have some recent updates that I would like to share with everyone concerning John’s health, my continued transition as a transgender man, and the changes that Baby Doll and I made in our relationship status as part of LGBTQ Pride Month.
Those who follow the series already know about  John’s chronic conditions that have plagued him since 2000, followed by new medical diagnoses since early 2013.
In late May, I shared the following on social media:
“In April, I shared the results of  John’s appointment with his rheumatologist. His blood work did not show RA. However, she suspects psoriatic arthritis. That prompted a second round of X-rays and an upcoming MRI. Since his GP is within the same network, we got the results of the second x-rays on his pelvis and hip areas today. He believes that John also has ankylosing spondylitis. The condition is a long-term type of inflammatory arthritis that affects the joints and bones at the base of the spine, near the hips and pelvis. After the MRI, we will return to the rheumatologist to discuss more treatment options. We didn’t like the last pharmaceutical suggestions, and I will be continuing to research alternative medicines until his next appointment.”
The MRI results were consistent with his labs and X-rays.  The ankylosing spondylitis (AS) has already begun to deteriorate the cushioning between the bones and joints in his lower back and hip area.  There is nothing doctors can do.  AS progresses at different levels, and may worsen with age.  Thus, the labs, X-rays, and MRI confirmed what we already suspected.
I’ve said before that I am a man who is used to fixing what is broken, one who likes cut and dry answers.  I have never come to terms with the fact that I cannot fix Baby Doll’s body, not that I haven’t and continue to try.  I don’t give up easily and not without a fight.  I literally owe John my life, and have never had a thought about not devoting that second chance to him. His illnesses don’t play by the rules, leaving me with no choice but to offer him my love as the only comfort.  Many times, I have wished that I could take his pain. I made a promise to John that we would get through this together.  I’m reading new articles everyday about what’s going on in his body.  There is something out there to help him, and I believe I will find it.
Most readers, are aware that I was assigned female at birth.  Since the age of five, my gender identity has been male.  While I was in high school, through research, I discovered that I was a gay transgender man.  When my partner and I came out in September 2013, I have worked to make my gender expression (body characteristics, haircut, clothing, etc.) match my gender identity.  While I have transitioned in every way mentally and emotionally, I am still in the process of transition.  I firmly believe that everyone transitions in their own way, and at their own time.  Gender and sexual orientation are not defined by surgeries and / or hormones, or the lack thereof.  Perhaps, I will always be transitioning to Andrew Kyle Jericho.
In February of this year, I had a hysterectomy.  The surgery was partly medically necessary, and also a personal decision.  This past week, I visited the OB/GYN who had performed the surgery to discuss some issues I have experienced as a result of the hysterectomy.  I inquired about some additional surgery.  While I am out to ninety-seven percent of society, there are still three percent who do not know.  However, I believe she suspects that I am a transgender man.  She will know eventually, maybe sooner than later.  Particularly, after the bout of gender dysphoria that I experienced in visiting her office on Wednesday.
On June 10th, I have an appointment with a plastic surgeon to discuss top surgery (double mastectomy), and what insurance will pay for based on problems I am having with my chest.  Since I live in the South, and he is not a expert in FTM issues, but certainly qualified to do the procedure, I am anxious to hear his response.  I am not out to him either.
My body has physically rejected the sex it was assigned at birth from the age that puberty began.  In addition, I produce more testosterone than what is expected from someone assigned female at birth. That explains my masculine thoughts, feelings, and facial /body structure (minus female reproductive organs). Having known this for some time, through blood work, I am glad for that discovery.  Due to some health issues, I will probably never be able to start HRT (Hormone Replacement Therapy).  For transgender men, this includes testosterone, or T.
Baby Doll has a sense of humor, and has always managed to make me laugh.  John told me that he feared if I was to take additional T, on top of the extra amount my body already makes, that I would end up like a pre-historic cave man. Even in my darkest hours of gender dysphoria, I can count on him to lift my spirits and touch my soul.  After all, it was his love that prevented me from ending my life at the age of seventeen.
Finally, I shared another status update on my social media at the beginning of LGBTQ pride month this week.  While John and I have always been committed as gay males, it is my desire that our state will eventually recognize the partnership that we share as a marriage between two men.
“As part of LGBTQ Pride Month,  John and I have changed our relationship status on FB from married to in a relationship. Most of you already know that I am a gay transgender man. When my partner and I married in 1992, we were only able to do so because all of my documentation listed me as having been assigned female at birth. We are still committed to each other as partners, but now hope to marry as gay men when same-sex marriage becomes legal once again in Arkansas. At that time, we will be seeking legal advice as to the best method of dissolving our old union, perceived by the State of Arkansas, as between a man and a woman.” 
Baby Doll and I are just two gay men navigating life.  While I share our romance, I also feel it’s important to share pieces of our lives that make us humans.  After you take away the writer and the activist, I am just Andrew, a human being like any other.  All of us want identity and humanization with our peers.
Since I’ve turned forty, I am trying to live a minimalist lifestyle.  Simplicity really is the key to life, or at least I believe so. In the materialistic society in which we live,  I believe that humanity and the relationships that we forge with others are of greater value than material wealth.
The Life With Baby Doll series is a free weekly MM romance read on my Website that shares my relationship with John Jericho.
To learn more about John and I visit: Life With Baby Doll.  Due to the increasing popularity of the Life With Baby Doll series, I have created the permanent tab on my Website that contains information concerning our intense and passionate love affair as partners.
I enjoy hearing from all of my readers, and look forward to your e-mails. Remember Love is Love…Period.
