THE ALTERNATIVE UNIVERSE JULY 2017 NEWSLETTER
CHAT FROM VcToria
VIP: I am gone from the café. I actually left another week earlier than I thought I would. It is June 26th today and I am at The Works festival till July 4th. Daily from 11am to 9.30pm doing mini psychic reads.
VIP: Normally I never take appointments in the summer once the festivals start as I work them all. BUT this year I am taking 2 ½ weeks off from July 5th to July 18th so I will book appointments at the home office during this time. Please see my website for the prices and packages. I advise you to book early as my time and choices of work can change on a dime!!
How was June for you all? Mine was busy and passed extremely quickly. Took off June 2nd from the café to do a wonderful little outside gig that I do every year in Tofield. This year the weather was windy and rainy so I decided to use my van for the readings. It worked out really well and I will continue to do that every year.
Continued booking reads at home and worked the café. I had my grandson over for supper on June 4th and then we watched a movie on TV in the evening. Took the following Monday off just to rest. I realised that I was sinking back into my ‘I hate schedules’ feeling. Once I get that feeling I know I have to shift things. I did as I will write about further on.
Gave the van a nice oil change plus filter. I am hoping it will last another year and I can purchase a new one next year. We shall see. Again I called in to book off the day shift on June 7th as it was just too bludy nice to be inside all day.
Had booked a show with my psychic buddy who works with me when I am overworked/overbooked. What a disgusting show. I have worked with this person before and found her to be rude and phony. Nice to you in front of the owners and really rude to you when she is alone with you. She placed our tent in the worst possible spot. It rained all of the 4 days. I closed up early on the Thursday [my day off from the café] with four small reads under my belt from ONE family. My buddy worked the next two days and had ONE read. Every vendor that came by said the same thing “I cannot believe she placed you there”. I packed up on the Sunday and did not even bother trying to work. That show will never have me in their venues again.
THEN!!! June 10th I took the day off to do two reads that were impossible to connect to so I rested instead of reading and went in for the night shift. Knowing that I was getting restless about being inside and being on a schedule I quit that night after the shift was over. I thanked the owner profusely for helping me with the last 5 months. I truly was grateful for all she did. I was able to get my mortgage based upon this extra income, plus a whole load of other things that I might not have right now AND!! Under Coincidences last month I wrote about a client who I sent to the café to take my place. She was hired on the spot, quit her office job that she hated and the prediction I gave her 6 years ago came true. She is doing her ‘passion’ job and LOVES it. She is getting on well with all the girls that I got along with at the café. I wish her nothing but growth and peacefulness.
One of the extra’s I was able to buy with my extra income were my remote control blinds. YES!!! On June 15th the guy showed up and now all I have to do is push a button that says ‘all’ and hit ‘open’ and all my downstairs blinds in the front room open simultaneously. A joy to my eyes.
Then I set off to Morinville to set up with a carnival. I know the owner and had given him a call and asked if I could come in. He said ‘yes’. I had a nice time there on Friday/Saturday but unfortunately on Sunday at 2pm out of the blue a MAJOR gust of wind ripped through the carnival, took out my tent that as it blew backwards busted the frame and also took out the bouncy hut, one of the kids play things at the carnival. Rain came down and the great folks there helped me pick up the tent and load my van and I headed home.
Next, knowing I was heading into this 13 day festival that I spoke about above I took the Monday to get all of Solomon’s medications filled, his strips needed to test his blood, Venus got her laxatone bought and China had her dry fish replenished. I then bought dry food, tinned, kitty litter and raw for the next 15 days. Got a supply of groceries for myself done. Got the lawn mowed, food prepared to be able to take to eat and on Wednesday June 21st my grandson and I set up The Works and here I sit with my computer preparing the Newsletter in-between doing reads LOVE IT!! On my right is the fountain with the gorgeous sound of water flowing all day. On my left we have live bands playing all day and night. The sun is shining, the wind is fresh and blows softly through my tent and people walk around. Meanwhile I get to make my income with my passion and knowing that I have this 2 ½ weeks of ALL MY OWN time coming up.
Oh yes, On June 11th my grandson turned 18 years of age. A big one for him. On the 12th I took him for lunch and naturally at that age they love cash for gifts so an easy thing to do.
As I mentioned last month I was going to get my eyebrows microbladed. I did just this. WOW!! What a fabulous job she did and I am VERY pleased. No, it does not hurt at all. I am going for my touch up on the 14th of this month and now I have eyebrows that look lovely.
This month on July 7th/8th/9th I am taking a course on writing a book and publishing it. I have a ghost writer writing for me and she is doing a FABULOUS job. I see my book coming out by the end of the year. I will be self-publishing and if all goes well this will be another business I will own with this GREAT writer.
And that folks is where my life is at right now! Have a WONDERFUL July and enjoy the summer. Life passes by so quickly that it is important to live it like you want to. Build a plan and then enjoy the moments getting to the goal. Meditate daily.
PS: On an added note: Doing these festivals I take a lot of credit cards. I cannot believe the amount of people who say ‘I do not need the receipt OR I don’t check my statements so do not need it. HUH?? I counsel each person who says this. Are you one of these people? Last year my Amex card has a $343 charge for a newspaper ad placed in New York. This month my Visa had a $33.93 purchase from Sears in Toronto. Both times I had the card cancelled and new one sent to me. Please folks they test out your card with very small purchases and if you do not cancel the card they continue to use it. If you do not check your statements you will not notice the small purchases. If two of you are using the card do not assume the other has made the purchase. Keep receipts and compare them to the monthly statements then throw them out. If your card is used fraudulently you get reimbursed right away.
CAT COSTS: Ahhhhh no vet bills were needed this month. Solomon is doing fine. His heart seems to be a lot stronger and I ask the Angels every day to heal him. However he still needs his heart medication plus his hyperthyroid stuff and of course his insulin daily. His medication came to $62.77. His insulin strips to test his blood came to $81.99 for a pack of 100. I de-wormed all 3 cats and their pills came to $22.18 as I bought them out in Tofield where the vet does not add a MASSIVE fee for stocking and selling them.
Kitty litter came to $59.96. It was on special at Save On Foods and I saved $20 by purchasing there. Funnily enough it’s cheaper than Petsmart. I switched to that new litter called Slide as I mentioned last month. Have never had a better kitty litter. Tinned food came to $125.36. Raw food came to $18.32. Dried fish for China came to $29.08. Venus’s laxatone came to 12.20. Total for the month came to $411.86. I still did not need dried food.
If you are thinking of getting a pet please know that from the cute stage, they grow with personality to adult stage. Animals feel with unconditional love from their souls. They get attached and used to their homes. If you cannot give up 12-18 years and maybe longer, do NOT get a pet. It is not a companion till you find a mate, have a child, decide to move to an apartment that will not allow pets, it is a companion for life. They also need dental care, checkups and GOOD food. Not this cheap, no nutrient food that I see so many people buy. Your pets will suffer later just as you would if all you ate was junk.
Look at rescue places for loving animals. These pets will not only be grateful, it's almost like they know you saved them and love and adore you for it. Think before you add to your life. Can you give this type of commitment? If the answer is yes then enjoy looking for your new companion. Think older if you can, for some reason older pets are harder to re-home and they are much sadder as they wait not knowing what it was they did to be removed from the homes they knew.
My Coincidence this Month: I have to say that by returning to the café for the last 5 months introduced me to the ghost writer who is now writing my book. She is a reader there until the book is published. She has a way with words and together we work well. Thank You Angels for making my life a place that needed a bit of extra income as now I can see that the future that choice made has brought me to another area that I have no doubt will be successful. If I had not made that choice I would never have met her. I do not think I could have met a better person to write for me.
Many months ago I wrote about Otto Warmbier, the fellow
who was arrested and convicted and given 15 years of hard labor in North Korea
for simply ripping down a poster that he wanted to keep as a souvenir. This
month he was brought home in a coma and died shortly after. There are some
things in this life that touch me deeply. Usually it is only with animals,
however this also brought me to tears. I had watched the sentencing on TV. I
cannot fathom a country that is so closed minded and ‘controlling’ that by
taking a poster off a hotel wall results in this. I have to say that once life
is over I do hope it makes as much sense to us individualy as our own DNA and
fingerprints does to us. I can only
assume that past lives are being repeated to those who inflicted the same to
others then. However, animals and the allowance of torture I still do not
fathom. However, this is created by humans so I can only hope that each soul
will feel that pain inflicted at some point in their journey.
My sympathies to the Warmbier family and I hope that one day it makes perfect sense to what has happened to your emotions.

To a man whose mind is free there is something even more intolerable in the sufferings of animals than in the sufferings of man. For with the latter it is at least admitted that suffering is evil and that the man who causes it is a criminal. But thousands of animals are uselessly butchered every day without a shadow of remorse. If any man were to refer to it, he would be thought ridiculous. And that is the unpardonable crime.- Romain Rolland, Nobe
Historic change for chickens but not from Tyson
Candice Bergen and Mercy For Animals
Jun 19, 2017 — In the year
since Mercy For Animals released the latest in a long series of undercover
investigations exposing criminal animal abuse at Tyson Foods, dozens of major
food companies—including Subway, Burger King, Chipotle, Panera Bread,
Starbucks, Jack in the Box, Aramark, Compass Group, and Applegate—have publicly
committed to chicken welfare policies that ban cruel practices Tyson still
inflicts on billions of birds!
Nearly 600,000 consumers have signed our petitions asking Tyson to stop torturing chickens, but Tyson has yet to implement the common sense standards that would prevent unimaginable animal suffering. This is unacceptable and must change.
Please call on Tyson to join dozens of other companies in pledging to meet the chicken welfare standards laid out by Global Animal Partnership and replace live-shackle slaughter with multi-step controlled-atmosphere processing systems that eliminate the horrific suffering caused by shackling, shocking, and slitting the throats of conscious animals. Share this petition and visit TysonTorturesAnimals.com to take action.
VcToria Comments: Please take a moment of your time and sign this petition. If you watch the news you would be aware of the AWFUL torture that took place in British Columbia as an undercover agent took videos. The employees broke their legs while alive, threw them against walls, stuffed them in tiny cages for transport. Lily is the company who buys and sells these poor creatures. If you say you love animals, which I hear a lot then why do you allow murder to continue? Stand up for those who cannot speak but only suffer. Stop eating them.
If you went vegan which is the healthiest life style I have ever experienced then animal cruelty and plain murder would go the way of fur coats. My stomach is NOT a grave yard, why is yours?
