6 Reasons so Many Spiritual People Have Been Fooled by Qanon

Yes, I am all about my crystals and tarot and dream work and a whole bunch of other so-called new age stuff. But I do agree with much of the following, especially this:



6 Reasons so Many Spiritual People Have Been Fooled by Qanon

The new age scene has a serious psycho-spiritual problem: the suppression of unconscious shadow material.

Their often excessively one-sided focus on the pure, spiritual plane of light and love leads to an equally excessive negation of "negative emotions" like fear and anger. Many new agers have created a self image of their own personality, a "spiritual ego," by which they pretend to already embody the pure, luminous being they aspire to be and thereby suppress their “negativity” in a way that it isn't accessible to their conscious reflection. The shadow therefore takes on a life of its own, which will terrorize and subconsciously dominate them from the psychological substratum of the neglected, unloved parts of themselves. (source:

On the other hand, a lot on the Left consider anyone who delves into a non-traditional, or even traditional, spiritual path as flawed. Less intelligent. Dupes. Ditzy. Shallow. Etc.



So there you go.

It's Not Nice to Steal




Back here on the original Orange Orb at blogger.

A comment: Don't steal my stuff. Linking to my content is great, but if you do, please cite the source. You know, something like "Written by the ever insightful and charming Regan Lee at Orange Orb" or some such.

Don't just rip off the post. I've had a lot my words just copied onto other sites, without any links or citations at all. I know this has happened to just about everyone who publishes on-line. And it sucks.
It's wrong. Knock it off.

I'm Back on Blogger

Well, decided to come back here to blogger and leave the Orange Orb on WordPress. I think I'll keep the WP blog up, at least for awhile, but will post here from now on.

Tell your friend, feel free to comment and share.

Mysterious Chinese Seeds and Teal Metallic Spheres



You've probably seen the reports of Americans receiving packets of seeds from China. Seeds citizens have not ordered. From CNN:

(CNN)All 50 states have now issued warnings about mysterious, unsolicited packages of seeds that people across the nation have received in the mail in recent weeks.

The packages appear to be coming from China, according to the US Department of Agriculture (USDA). Photos shared by state agriculture departments show packages marked with labeling from China Post, which operates the official postal service of China. Some of the labels also indicate that the packages contain jewelry, although inside is typically a packet of seeds in clear, plastic packaging. (CNN)
Weird to be sure. All kinds of conspiracy theories will come of this. 

Related, sort of: about a month ago, I soaked some lemon seeds from store bought lemons, thinking I was going to start a little lemon tree plant. Not to plant outside; we live in Western Oregon, not good for lemon trees. But maybe an indoor plant. Just curious to see what would happen.


After about three days of soaking the seeds, which looked perfectly normal when they came out of the lemon, the seeds were not your typical lemon seeds, but perfect little spheres.  Not only were they spheres, but a shiny, metallic teal color.  Very strange. I have never seen that before. 








More curious now, I waited to see what would happen after I planted the seeds, er, spheres. Lots of sprouts. I kept them going; after a couple of weeks, the sprouts died off, leaving three dark green shoots. They look promising. 

I wish I had the idea to take a picture of the spheres, but I didn't. But here is an image of the little lemon (?) starts. 

Right now they're on the railing of the porch, they seem to be doing fine. When it gets cooler and the shoots get bigger, I'll plant them in a bigger pot and we'll see what happens.

What to Do, What to Do? : Changing Platforms

Please comment. Do I come back here to blogger? Stay at WordPress? I am confused.

Things about both I like, things about both I do not.

I feel more comfortable here at blogger. But I think WordPress is spiffier, but it's also more finicky.

I dunno.

Feedback appreciated. I'll decide soon.

Oddly Curious, But Not Enough To Be Truly Odd




I'm still here! Actually, over there, on Word Press. Orange Orb is now on Word Press, has been for awhile now. Many thanks to those who are curious enough to check out Orange Orb on Word Press. For example, this post, on a not very interesting but still kind of weird episode.

Podcast: Exploring the Bizarre with Tim Beckley and Tim R. Swartz



Fun conversation with Tim Beckley and Tim Swartz last night. Thanks guys! Time went by too quickly, didn't get around to Bigfoot! We discussed orbs, mainly, so much more to discover.

Beckley is one of the very few out there who just really knows all kinds of UFO and paranormal history. I mean the tidbits and out there stuff. All of it. Pretty keen.

Happy New Year! And a reminder.





Happy New Year!

And a reminder that I still am posting Orange Orb over on Word Press. Google/blogger/blogspot has become extremely confusing and messy, especially given that I have many blogs. For example, my Mothman Flutterings Two blog; I can't get into the dashboard to manage my own blog. Mothman Flutterings still shows up on-line, but nothing new will be posted there until -- and unless -- Blogger/Google hell can help. Which so far, has not happened.

I posted this same post yesterday, but it didn't go through. I'm not sure if that's because I linked to WordPress, (which doesn't make sense), or what the issue is. So just search for Orange Orb on Word Press and it will get you there.

Amethyst Third Eye Meditation and Aliens – The Orange Orb on WordPress

 Over at Orange Orb on Word Press blog, a new post about an experience/encounter I had last night. Here's a bit, more at WordPress:





: Last night, I was meditating on my third eye, and the color and energy of amethyst. I had two amethyst clusters by my bedside, where I was sitting. I was not asleep, but very relaxed.

Behind my eyes, the usual swirls and shapes danced, but nothing specific. I wasn’t trying for anything at all. Just concentrating on breathing, and amethyst energy/color. Abruptly, this came shooting by:
