What have you been doing to get people to notice you? If it's not working it may be because you are holding back in some way. Sometimes we can seem like we are putting it all out there yet we can be holding back what we most want to reveal. Why is that? Because we fret over what other people told us works. When I said I was going to do this many newsletters I was told I would alienate people.
Who made up these rules? One thing that all artists have in common is the ability to see or notice things that most people don't. One thing that many illusionists or magicians have in common is the ability to make you not notice something and to focus on what they want you to notice. Some people feel that is manipulative.
Anything that is created to make us feel something deeply can work on us in this way. Ever cry at a movie, then feel embarrassed and try to blame the score for manipulating you? Remember, if it's not inside us, no one can bring it out of us. What are you here to evoke?

My hands have a huge emphasis on Mercury. This is what I came to do. Ask and provoke questions.
btw - Just because we claim our something like our gift markings or our life purpose- does not mean that we never again wrestle with its "opposite." I have as much (probably more) to teach from the "shadow" of trickster and learning how to work with this energy in a way that felt good to me as I do about living, loving and working from inside the ever shifting mind.
I can journey with you into the center of your mind and encourage you to play with all your lens, filters, perceptions and perspectives. Sometimes people act like "filters" are a bad thing. That if we got rid of those filters we would be more pure or enlightened. Here's how I feel. I would not want to be shooting with only one lens or filter yet I do want to be aware I am using a filter.
The more lens and filters the happier I am. Once I agreed to lead with my Trickster energy yet not shove it in the "wrong" people's faces the more confident I became of my worth and value.
The fastest way to find out what gifts of yours to lead with- and believe me if you're feeling stuck, discontent or like people don't get you it's because you're not fully using your ringleader gift marking - is to do a gift marking reading with me http://denisedee.com/gift-markings-only-10-of-us-have-them-do-you-know-what-yours-are/
If you have the ability to do things quickly, differently and without having to know the reasons for everything you have to keep an eye on people wanting you to play by their rules or by logic. For one thing I have found "logical" people can be expecting the effect to show up in the same realm as the cause. Sometimes this happens but more frequently I have found the effect shows up in a different realm or arena. If we don't know this or aren't paying attention we may feel like nothing happened.
My teachers in school preached that studying produced good grades. That only worked for me if it was a list of dates or facts that I had to memorize. They may also feel that following the rules produces guaranteed results. I suppose I have seen that in baking. I invite you to ask yourself:
Do I have rules? Whose rules am I following? Am I getting results? Am I getting the results I desire?
People who break the rules tend to make people nervous. Yesterday with the glaring L.A. sun forcing me to shield my eyes even though I had on a cap and sunglasses I went internal. I starting thinking about L.A.'s thriving underground comedy and theater scene. Here in the city of eternal sunshine we some of us crave shadow and darkness.
Some people believe that the purpose of light is to dispel darkness. I seem to recall the Genesis story saying that god created light and separated light from darkness. I don't recall a "dark is bad" component to that story.
I quickly went and looked this up (because god knows I am no biblical scholar) and came across an interesting theory that what god created/discovered (?) was "Black-body radiation" A Black-body at room temperature appears black (they say) as most of the energy it gives off is infra-red which can not be perceived by the human eye. Hmm. Sounds like our psychic gifts. More on this on my free call today 605-562-3140 access code 662725#
Past the causal plane there is no right/wrong or good/evil. The Seer Star gift marking- the Oracle to Oracles is not about good vs bad or dark vs light.
It's about seeing the truth and what is going to happen if people stay on the course they are on. There is no emotion when we are in this state. My guides spoke during Monday's Meet Your Guides call about how empathy can mess with both your intuition and your psychic gifts. Why? Because if we're not clear whose feelings are whose it's hard to be able to see clearly. Empathy is not a "predictive" or decision making gift. (I have multiple empath markings - so not dissing empathy.) More on this on my free call today 605-562-3140 access code 662725#
I like what happens in shadows. I love mystery. I love edgy. "You must defeat the ordinary" Carter says to Jake in Carter Beats the Devil. Most magicians saw a woman in half, Carter and Jake saw a piano in half with the audience wildly cheering them on. Carter banking on the fact that most of the people who were forced to take piano lessons as children hated them. "Now you must never be ordinary!"
My favorite theater and dance performances have always been emotionally devastating. Devastating in their truth and in their beauty. Moment of dark, of light and moments where the lens is shifting so you sometimes find yourself identifying or at least understanding a character you may have thought you would have been repulsed by when you entered the theater.
Pina - Wim Wender's film about Pina Bausch (my favorite choreographer) just showed up on Hulu. I saw it in a theater but that didn't stop me from watching it 2x over the weekend. I became obsessed with the song "The Here and After."
You can watch and hear this devastatingly beautiful performance and song here.

p.s. Found Carter Beats The Devil in a tiny free library box, walked a block turned the corner there was Miss Mindy's mural.
p.p.s. - Tomorrow I'm ripping off a huge spiritual Band-Aid.
