Why I Stopped FB and YT

We are what we engage with. When we ‘sign up’ for something and participate in it, that means we are part of it. Not only are we exposed to it more regularly, we rely on it as part of how we get and give information.

Over the years, you used to see me engaging heavily on Youtube through frequent videos. I also posted a lot on FB, leading upwards of 3,500 people at a time through open access learning activities. If you have been watching you have noticed that I took down my youtube page of videos. You will also notice that FB posts stopped. Nothing is wrong with me. I am in the best health of my life and seeing things clearly.

As a person who has always held strong values, particularly around freedom of information and informational integrity, what I am seeing happening on these platforms is outright scary. This is a shortlist:

  1. Censorship relating to the truth about Covid. These platforms are major cogs in the serious mishandling of a real crisis leading to death. An example from a highly reputable and involved source: https://open.spotify.com/episode/3SCsueX2bZdbEzRtKOCEyT?si=oS7EdZmXQ3mYjYdSLHsp_g. I can provide more. A second: #1747 – Dr. Peter A. McCullough – The Joe Rogan Experience | Podcast on Spotifyhttps://open.spotify.com/episode/0aZte37vtFTkYT7b0b04Qz
  2. Lack of diverse information on key subjects. When there is no diversity in information, that indicates very strong content control.
  3. Increasing control of what a person is and which categories they (or their creations) fit in. I call this ‘boxing’ and they use psychological tricks with the platforms that are built in to discipline you when you leave yours. That is crazy.
  4. Ongoing accurate information being touted as ‘inaccurate’ by ‘fact checkers’ who are really ‘line towers’. (I got ‘fact checked’ for sharing an image of a lamb. A LAMB.)
  5. Unsafe behaviours of bullying, stalking, and energy siphoning are the norm there.
  6. Creative content. Did you know when a creative person puts their writing on one of those platforms, they have a claim to it? Keep this in mind if you are a creator.
  7. Censorship relating to the real life ‘tough stuff’ that is often the line of information sharing I did. In the old days you used to remember me being able to talk about sexual abuse, addiction, and unequal power. We are not allowed to talk about those things on these platforms any longer. They are now ‘taboo’. Over the past two years, as I have refused to tow that line I have seen my profiles be demonetized, shadowbanned (almost constantly), and toyed with.
  8. They purport themselves to be ‘free’ but have loads of built in ‘checks’ to control content. This is beyond useful filtering. This is being specifically used to form and control narratives. If you have ever read 1984, you may recognize the phrase ‘Ministry of Truth’. We are in that level and these platforms are part of it.

Not only all of the above, we are also exposed to technology that is known to enhance digital surveillance to corporate interests. In turn, they are clearly willing to let that be used to foster greater control.

In addition to all of the above, they are addictive.

We Are What We Put Our Energy Into

We are what we put our energy into. Simple as that. My creations do not belong on these toxic and dangerous platforms. Bigger than that, why would I subject myself or my students to something SO unhealthy? Knowing that things just were not right on these places, I have decided to stop using them. I took all my youtube videos down and deleted my page. I am in the process of letting my FB ‘sit’ as a resource, but it too will eventually be taken down.

If you stand for nothing, you will fall for anything.

I stand for truth, peace and freedom. I act in accordance with that. Even if that means I lose access to a VERY LARGE AUDIENCE. This is not the first time a choice I made for integrity would put me in this position. You have seen me walk away from scenarios that could have brought me a lot of money and influence because it was coming the wrong way and would have exposed you, my people, to dangerous things. That is not how I roll. No amount of likes, a few course signups, or a higher view count number is worth endangering the people who came to trust me as a teacher.

What we put our energy into, even when it comes to things like information exchange, has a HUGE impact on our lives. I care about mine and yours. As we said in the 2022 Astrology report, this is a year of ‘me’. Where we really get to the basics and start ground up, with purity and clarity. For me, taking the leap off of those heaps is part of it.

Still Creating

I make podcasts on spotify because they still have high informational integrity on that platform. These get broadcast to anchor, itunes, and other major players. Here is my rss feed: https://anchor.fm/s/4e78d11c/podcast/rss. Sometimes these podcasts have videos. ***I broadcast on several platforms and these podcasts can be accessed ‘for free’ (aside from the music specials, which due to licensing are for sportify members only). For example, apple player on the internet (not itunes) lets you listen right from the browser. So does Anchor.

I write all the time and will continue to produce videos. I have an independent host that I just purchased not 24 hours after making the next phase of this choice and putting it into action.

You can always come and join me at my school. I will be focusing my teaching there. https://indicrowacademy.learnworlds.com/. Over the years, I allowed my public profiles to be my ‘school’, offering upward of 10 000 people with ‘free’ educational experiences. I will be continuing on with that fun, caring learning approach, there. I finally found a host that works well and has all the bells and whistles. Join us!

Not to mention, I made sure my last presence on FB was an energy management personal enhancement experience. That type of self care and wellness legacy is a wonderful step to leave off on.

While I do hope that people come here and find me, and follow this blog, I realize that the addiction cycle of FB is very strong. I spent many years dedicated to the people online in that community including going full public access programming, particularly during the first half of the pandemic where I held weekly gatherings ‘for free’, which is really something I did since 2016. We had a lot of good times. THANK YOU. There were some of you I really, really loved who I do hope come along to visit me!!! Maybe you are seeing this for what it is too and are seeking something out.

Here are some of my recent voice based podcasts:

Pluto Power 2022 Astrology Special Crow Medicine: Spirituality for the 21st Century

Pluto is a planet that we do not often hear a lot about. This is not going to be the case for 2022. As of its solstice conjunction with Venus and solidified with the nodal switch of South into Scorpio as of January 18, we are into a blissful (or terrible) year cycle that will be heavily influenced by Pluto. How we connect to its energy now will influence our experience of transformation throughout. This podcast summarizes the powerful movements of Pluto and how we may work with this planetary influence to support our journey into a new consciousness.  We are at a very special window of our journey together. Pluto solar conjunction and the transition that we will be moving through with our nodal switch and Uranus direct movement (all happening mid-January) are planet changing moments. Life changing opportunities are everywhere. If it feels like everything is being shaken to the core, it is because it is. This podcast does not ignore that. Key dates discussed: 21/12/21: Solstice with Pluto and Venus conjunction. This sets the tone for the cycle of seasons.  16/1/22: Pluto Solar conjunction. 18/1/22: Uranus goes direct AND nodal switch. North node into Taurus (ruled by Venus) and South node into Scorpio (ruled by Pluto).  12/2/22: Pluto and Mercury conjunction. 3/3/22: Pluto and Mars conjunction. 5/3/22: Pluto and Venus conjunction. We also have Pluto at opposition in July (I did not speak about that in the report but will in July). POWERHOUSE PLANETARY ALIGNMENTS, RIGHT?!?! I, for one, am excited. We need this. Things were getting pretty stuffy in that last epoch. It is time to break the chains. Tune in to hear the special details of all of these dates and how they work together. The onus of this podcast is spent telling the story of how this journey of Pluto offers a transformation point out of the restrictions of living within the outdated archetypes and conditions that we have been.  I do not belabour the Pluto underworld point because to be honest, we have been living there. It is time to move out. These alignments, as I see and suggest we connect to them, are all about that.
