The Black Magicians Of The Media

Commercial Real Estate Agent with Next Wave RE Investments LLC Bullhead City AZ Commercial RE Broker AZ BR 528507000


EVERYTHING is about ALIGNMENT. An energetic 'frequency' we all have, tuned in to 'one thing or another'.


If you want something, and you are not ENERGETICALLY ALIGNED with the joy and success of that goal IN THE PRESENT MOMENT, you will AT VERY LEAST delay your progress, and you might even prevent it.


So here we all are, watching and listening to the media, and that includes SOCIAL MEDIA, and that EVEN INCLUDES reading THIS. 


When the media 'tells you' to be afraid . . . even if they are just parroting something they were TOLD TO TELL YOU (did you know that 90% of the mainstream media and entertainment are owned by just 6 CORPORATIONS?)  . . .


  • Comcast -- major holdings include NBC (including CNBC and MSNBC), Universal Pictures, many smaller cable channels (including The Weather Channel, USA, Bravo and E!)
  • Disney – ABC, ESPN, Pixar, A&E, Lifetime and Marvel Studios
  • News Corporation – Fox (News, Sports and 20th Century), The Wall Street Journal, New York Post, FX, Barron’s, HarperCollins publishing
  • Time Warner – CNN, Time Magazine, Warner Bros, HBO, Cinemax, the CW, TBS, TNT
  • CBS Corporation– CBS, Simon and Schuster
  • ViacomComcast– MTV, Comedy Central, BET, Paramount Pictures


They are casting a dark spell on you. They are enticing you to fear the future. A 'future' that in the present moment, DOES NOT EXIST.


In doing so, you are knocked off balance. Your energetic alignment, your connection to Divinity is blocked.

This will manifest in all sorts of ways. Not the least of which is . . .


poor health and a compromised immune system.




So do me a damn favor, people. 


Breathe. Know that a higher power than 6 MF corporations, a power that you can tap into and receive peace, joy and HEALTH from, has your back and you can smile, relax and absorb those positive energies AT ANY TIME you wish.


IN THE MOMENT . . . find a reason to be grateful. Can you see this? You have your eyesight. Use ALL your senses. Can you smell a flower? Touch a loved one or a pet, or feel a warm bath? Taste your morning coffee? Get back to basics. Turn OFF the TV and put on music, or enjoy the bliss of silence. 


You don't need to be the victim of black magic. 


Without your energy to feed off of . . . it will starve to death.



Once I jumped through hoops of fire
High and far as you required
I was blind but now I see
Salvation has discovered me

My iphone displays all the events that is of interest. My wife says lets find out the weather for tommorow.  I said I already told you a few hours ago.  Now I want to hear the official verdict which is what you said.

I am so glad that Kathy Streib chose this post as one of her Sunday specials. At last we have restaurants open with rules, and it is so good to see people out.  And you can feel the good vibes in the air at large...What amazes is how many of the fearing ones are the younger set.  They have already been scarred with fear...Happy Sunday,  A

One of my clients was out with a group in SD last night, huge drama  . . . one of the group forgot to put on her mask to go to the bathroom and they ALL got kicked out of the restaurant. LOL but they have to enforce.

Here, a MILE LONG car line to get into one of the riverfront campgrounds . . . and Lake Havasu was packed with patriots and partiers. Delightful (even though I'm home shining up my spa)!

Very interesting to know about those corporate media giants Candice...Trust but verify is never overrated when it comes to the media, especially when living in the National Enquirer-esque of times. There are those out there who think everyone else needs to keep them safe by wearing a mask at all times. People, come on, whatever happened to personal responsibility?!

RIP. Cause of death: 'safe space' 'safety pin' 'triggered' 'butthurt' 'terrified' and 'nanny-needing' generation of  weenies that don't know what gender they are or if they are even human . . . and think everything is an entitlement.

I missed your post but fortunately Kathy featured it for us all to read. So much wisdom here, with so much more about life, and gratitude, to focus on instead of the media.

My days in the media, you did not opine unless it was an op-ed. You also succeeded according to how often you got fired which meant you had creativity and independent thought. LOL

Candice, an important post and a brave one, cuts to the heart of the matter.  Fear porn paralyzes the soul.  No TV here, no main stream media playing.  What a difference not to clog up heart and mind.  

People are asking, why do the media conglomerates focus on doom and gloom (and evade professionalism journalism) that doesn't represent the human spirit which can align any moment with love and the beauty of life.

IDK about brave - I'm just sick of people being weenies bc of what they are spoonfed by the media, bringing the rest of us down.

Crankier than brave . . . LOL

I sometimes think that it's not so much what I'm hearing, but the frequency with which I'm hearing it Candice A. Donofrio ... just try to find an article on Twitter regarding real estate/lending without first having to wade through handfuls of political/news posts first.  And that in groups that are real estate-based!

The news can begin to feel like battering  ... whether it's pro or con to my impressions or beliefs ...

Keep telling it, Candice!

Oh I do love your outlook on life!

Fear is horrible - and crippling. I feel very fortunate to live where there have only been 4 cases in our entire 1,900 square mile county - and those were early on. And yet... I see a few people wearing masks. Why?

And why on earth do people wear masks go go biking, jogging, driving, and walking all alone? I think that's insane, but perhaps they fear being arrested for non-compliance with "the rules."

I have had no use for the news media for at least the past decade, so nothing new there. It's not news. It's merely their opiions.

It's one thing to watch the news for entertainment . . . but falling into the fear porn cult trap is dangerous . . .

What an excellent essay Candice A. Donofrio! The only thing I don't understand is why didn't the magicians behind the scenes on ActiveRain feature this one for you? More people need to read this outstanding work of truth.

The Media is evil! Propaganda! Lies and deception! To quote Thomas Paine, "Reason obeys itself; and ignorance submits itself to whatever is dictated to it." 

Enough is enough. The abuse of Fake News is out of control. People are not sheep or pawns to be used for political gain. As for those so called late night talk show hosts, I'm sure Johnny Carson is rolling in his grave. Day after day. Night after night viewers across the nation are letting those liars and thieves into their living room. They do not report the facts. They give us their opinions and make sarcastic comments on whoever opposes their views. I wish I could spit in their eye! 

I absolute love this blog post. It's education at its best!!! Way to go Candice!!!

Candice A. Donofrio You will lovehate this on Linkedin originally posted by Flavio Souza, "This is what is looks like when 5 corporations own 90% of the media." 

It's video of 27 newscasters reading the same daily script.

I've seen it. And if you want to see something intense and very disturbing, a Hollywood stuntman
did a documentary called Out of Shadows.
The media and those corporations that own and run entertainment are extremely sinister.

you and my apple watch telling me to breathe.  But fortunately for me and my family I never ever take news (mainstream or not) at face value and repeat it without some form of research to dig for the truth.  

I'm a God fearing, gun toating, red blooded American who values my liberties and won't tolerate them being trampled on. I'm also wise enough to be reading studies on COVID19 treatments in and out of America for trials and I KNOW what medical treatment I would demand and find a doctor to administer if I or a family member got it.  I know where a doctor in the US is using it with success is located if I had to travel if a local doctor wouldn't call.
