Technology Kills--PBS's Your Phone is Trying to Control Your Life

TECHNOLOGY KILLS--I have been saying such on this blog for years. PBS's Newshour last night had a segment on how your phone is trying to control your life. Not surprising, since technology, in this case a cell phone is a thought form. And like all thought forms it looks to run your life. That is why it is so critical to act and think out of love.

Cell phones are also incredibly damaging to Mother Earth.

Bully Amazon is Trying to Force Me to Use CreateSpace


Recently Amazon has put on a big push to squeeze independent authors and small publishers to use their printing company CreateSpace. I refuse. They are employing tactics such as removing the BUY BUTTON from my books page, or saying that it is temporarily out of stock, will take weeks to order, etc.

Below is the page for my recently released book. Notice that there is no buy button. In order to buy the book you have to pay more and use an independent seller. Or just give up and not be bothered.

You can Buy my book at Barnes and Noble and get free shipping because it is over $25.

My book came out a few weeks back. Initially it was up for sale and a few people were able to buy books and then the BUY BUTTON was removed. Can you believe amazon removed my book's Buy Button.

I have filed a complaint with the NYS Attorney General and will be talking to lawyers about trying to start a class action suit against Amazon. 

I encourage you to complain to Amazon. 

Please file a complaint with the NYS Attorney General if:

  • If you were not able to buy my book.
  • Were forced to pay more.
  • Or used Create Space to print a book--It cost you much more.
Justice must prevail.

Many independent authors and smaller publishers fearful of retribution and not wanting the hassle switched to Createspace for part of their printing needs. They are a more costly option--THEY TAKE A MUCH LARGER CUT!!!!!!!!!!!!

I am on a list serve for independent publishers and constantly hear complaints about Amazon's antics.

Here is a post in response to one of my queries by one brave soul that took Amazon to court. They buckled because they knew that they would loose.

Back in 2008, Amazon began making phone calls to print on demand 
publishers, threatening to remove their "buy" buttons if those 
publishers didn't start using Amazon's printing division (BookSurge, 
which has since been re-named CreateSpace).

After we were one of the unlucky firms to receive such a call,
we sued Amazon (class-action) for (allegedly) violating federal 
anti-trust laws. We won when Amazon quickly settled after a federal 
judge refused to dismiss the case. See:

We were about to begin discovery and we're pretty sure Amazon did NOT 
want us (or anyone) getting an in-depth look at their in-house 
communications concerning the controversy.

Under our settlement, Amazon must leave our books alone but other 
publishers, who were too afraid to join us as plaintiffs in the lawsuit, 
were not protected. Believe me...we tried to get many of them to sign on 
but they were too fearful of Amazon's wrath. I, myself, would have 
rather gone out of business than have a behemoth firm dictate to me who 
my suppliers will be.

At that time, many of our competitors caved to Amazon and signed their 
contract. However, firms that didn't, and firms that have emerged since 
then, might consider contacting an attorney about Amazon's recent 
actions because...it sure looks to me like they're doing the same thing. 
Another one one of competitors told me via phone that he recently 
received a similar phone call from Amazon - the same type of phone call 
we received back in 2008, which led to our lawsuit against them.

I know it's frustrating. You can read all about our lawsuit at the link 
above, including all the filings.

Our attorneys' info. is also in those filings. They handled our case on 
a contingency basis because they were pretty certain we would eventually 
win. And, we did. Amazon ended up paying $300K to our attorneys alone. I 
have no idea how much more they spent on their own.

Good luck!!

Please join me in this fight and file a complaint with the NYS Attorney General. A bully must be challenged and exposed. Shame on Amazon!!!!!

Ghost Busters, Odd Coincidence, the Universe

I was watching the new Ghostbusters Movie (2016) starring Melissa McCarthy when I noticed some strange similarities to my personal life. Odd I thought.

It begins when the ghostbusters talk about various power points where ghosts and creepy things have been  happening in NYC. They mention the corner of Sixth Ave and 26th Street. It caught my attention because my last residence in NYC before coming home to Syracuse was 109 West 26th Street.

They then connect all the x's and say that they represent Ley Lines. I have been searching for Ley Lines for 15 years. My most recent book Sacred Sites in North Star Country is all about where Ley lines originate from.

Further in the movie they talk about how Ley Lines are a passage system  in the unseen world separating this world from the unseen world. Not to dissimilar from what I believe.

The topper was that a fellow was looking to create a vortex where the Ley Lines intersected. My previous Vortices and Spirals was all about what vortices are, how to create them and work with them.

Coincidence? Or the Universe at Work?

Charged Spirit Lines (Ley Lines)

Last Thursday I did a talk on "Charged Ley Lines" to the Finger Lakes Dowsers. Ancient cultures used to charge Ley Lines by praying, doing ceremony or praying on them and the stones that they marked the Spirit Line with. Once charged Spirit Lines (Ley Lines) have a very positive, or charged feel to them.

I never knew about Charged Spirit Lines because never ran into one. While the majority of Spirit Lines were once charged, they have lost their charge because of human activity and thought. I was blown away when I finally found a charged Spirit Line at Hipp Brook, in Penfield NY.  Below is a picture of it. My staff shows its direction and you can see several stones placed upon it long ago.

My Clarks Gully Blog has lots of pictures of Charged Spirit Lines that have lost their charge.

I also led a group meditation with over 30 people on the Ley Line. It was a powerful experience that charged the Ley Line, the room and the participants. I also believe one person had a cathartic experience and expunged something from their subtle body.

Nation Wide Protest Against Climate Change Deniers, Monday January 9th

Nationwide Rallies on Monday January 9th
Rally against Trump Cabinet Picks of Climate Change Denier

Click To See about Your Town

Syracuse 12 Noon Chuck Schumer's Office
100 South Clinton Street, Room 841

On January 9th, people in all 50 states will send a message to every US Senator: reject Donald Trump's reckless climate denying cabinet nominees. The Day Against Denial will fight back against some of Trump’s most dangerous cabinet picks: - Rex Tillerson, CEO of Exxon, for Secretary of State - Scott Pruitt for EPA Administrator - Ex-Gov. Rick Perry for Secretary of Energy - Rep. Ryan Zinke for Department of Interior The climate is changing, and anyone who denies it shouldn't be in the White House cabinet. It's up to the Senate to stop these nominations -- and up to us to show up in person to tell our Senators to fight Trump's Climate Denial Cabinet. That starts with rallies with all of our friends and neighbors, calling out our Senators to do the right thing and reject the nominations, and having direct conversation with the Senator’s staff to pass along the message that we, as constituents and voters, do not accept Trump’s dangerous nominations.

It is available on Amazon and Barnes and Noble.

I will also have books available at my upcoming talks; $30, tax included. For more information go to (bottom of the page) Madis Senner's Upcoming Events  -Syracuse, Geneva, Norwich, N. Syr, Oneida... More coming cities and towns coming

ISBN 978-0-9908744-1-6
506 pages
Sacred Sites in North Star Contry lists over 125 sacred sites in 7 states and Canada--most are in NYS. It is made up of 3 parts. Part I tells the history of North Star Country, explains Fields of Consciousness and how to use the book and how to get the most out of your visit. Part II is the listing of sacred sites, Part III contains the Conclusion (Transformation not Revolution) and useful information--contact information, how to get involved, update sources, prayers, glossary, index...

From the Back Cover
Place matters. Sacred Sites in North Star Country shows how the land influenced the dramatic social changes that took place in greater New York State that shaped the world. It provides a listing of sacred sites to experience and even sense and feel that consciousness. 

North Star Country was the birthplace of the Women’s Movement and American Democracy, as well as the home to America’s Second Great Awakening. It has been called the Burned-over District for its spiritual wildfires and America’s Psychic Highway. It is a place where prophets walked, religions were born and great souls lived—Harriet Tubman, Susan B. Anthony, Fredrick Douglas, William Seward, Gerrit Smith…

“One of the Holiest places in the world,” is how the Sikh mystic and guru Baba Virsa Singh described Gobind Sadan his North American ashram in North Star Country.

It was in the heart of North Star Country on the shores of Onondaga Lake (Syracuse, NY) that the great Iroquois prophet the Peacemaker planted the Tree of Peace and gave his people the Great Law of Peace that would serve as a model for America’s founders and inspire the Women’s movement.

It was here that the great mystic and teacher Swami Vivekananda, who introduced yoga and Hindu Vedanta to the West, achieved the highest meditative state of Samadhi, Nirvakalpa Samadhi. It was here that Clara Barton got her epiphany to start the American Red Cross. It was here that the lawyer Charles Grandison Finney walked into the woods one night and committed to God and started his path to be one of the dominant spiritual leaders of America’s Second Great Awakening. More…

That Spirit, that Consciousness, the motivated and inspired so many lies sleeping in the land. Come help reinvigorate it, tap into it and dream of a better world and in the process make a better you.

This is a tremendous source book.  I found it to be easy to read, very thorough, well researched with a wealth of information—an epic work.  Madis’ love and respect for our beloved Mother Earth, Her bounty that is ours for the taking and how cooperation between Her and humanity is for the highest and best good, shines through every page.  If you are looking for a book with a unique and different perspective this is the book for you.

That Which Unites Us--New York Rich History of Social Reform, Justice and Democracy

Susan Arbetter of NY Connect did a wonderful segment on upstate NY's rich history of social reform. It contained several recent movement not included in my book Sacred Sites in North Star Country--Places in Greater NYS That Changed the World like the birth of the Gay rights Movement at the Stonewall Inn in Greenwich Village, NY. Which not surprisingly is close to a Field of Consciousness.

From politics to religion you don’t have to look far to find our divisions. It takes more of an effort to identify those values that unite us. Coming up on the next Connect NY, we take a tour through the chapters of New York’s history that have brought us together. The Jerry Rescue; abolition; suffrage; civil rights and labor rights. Join us as we highlight the values that unite us as a community
