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 and engagements to my personal page which used to be home base have 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.
  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.
  4. Ongoing accurate information being touted as ‘inaccurate’ by ‘fact checkers’ who are really ‘line towers’. (As an academic. I have been horrified at what gets called not a fact these days.)
  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.

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

As noted, I left my business page sitting on fb and allow these posts to autostream through. Because it directs a link to my site, the creative content theft is not an issue. This will remain for a small while as a bridge to my faithful readers. There will be no more public events or engagement through there. Nor do I personally visit. It is now an automation that will be phased out.

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://crowmedicinemedia.com/blog/ and my rss: 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!

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.

Why We Start Feeling (and Feel So Much) Energy Crow Medicine: Spirituality for the 21st Century

Have you ever wondered why it is it that we are able to live with energy all around us and never be 'bothered by' or 'notice it' and then one day, BAM. We feel like it is 'everywhere' and we can feel 'everything'?  Have you ever felt overwhelmed and like all you feel is 'everyone else' when you go to big venue events, even though you used to love them before? Have you ever wondered why people seem to start feeling energy so much, or differently, as we move through our expansion process? Almost like you get new layers to your sensory perception as you go? Going beyond the simple answer of you are empathic or energy sensitive, in this little podcast, I talk about each of these experiences within the context of answering the question: Why Do We Feel So Much (More) Energy? 'Feeling everything' or starting to 'feel more' than you previously did is a sign that your soul and energy body are connecting to receive more messages about your environment and that you are able to physically experience them in your body. What you are 'picking up' or 'sensing' has to do with who you are and where you are located. A lot of the discomfort and confusion that accompany being energy sensitive and waking up different parts of the sensory system comes from not giving ourselves the opportunity to recognize just how much we really do pick up from around us and thus, do not help ourselves filter it. We get hyperstimulated and overwhelmed. It does not have to be this way. As our skills or our ability to 'hear' our environments expands, we do best with giving ourselves spaces to adjust, ground, and set our skills. In this 14-minute podcast, I talk a little bit about the technical aspects of how our energy bodies expand, what it is that we start picking up, and how we are able to tune our sensitivities to be something we actually enjoy experiencing.  Once we are able to figure out that we are feeling things in astral, physical, and emotional space and that our senses are bringing us information, things start to get less confusing. Being energy sensitive and having expanding senses can be a lot to adjust to. The good news? Once you realize that you can train your energy body to 'hear' certain messages and disregard others and once you tune to a harmonic that works for you, life gets easier. This is the point where your energy senses are fun and you get to play with it. Like this topic? Stay tuned! I will be back with more on this topic as we celebrate 'Mars and Jupiter in Aries' all season long.  You may also like this little video and written post about why energy sensitive people feel worn down post gym.
