THE ALTERNATIVE UNIVERSE APRIL 2021 NEWSLETTER
FIRST: 😊 if you have a Gmail account or any other e-mail that does not allow you to see the ‘buttons’ at the bottom of this e-mail [if this is how you received it] please note that you would need to hit the ‘read more’ that accompanies many e-mails if the News is too long. You may be missing the bottom part of my Newsletters. 😊
Next: I announced last month that I was setting up The Hermetic Order of Campo Santo. This will contain all the classes my parents taught on Neophyte Magic and Novice Magic PLUS my Dad's Learn to Read Tarot [properly 😊] I said I would update you every month on the process. The Tarot has been typed in and edited and sent to a person who is working on it so that later it will be uploaded to DRM (Digital Rights Management). I will also have 10–15-minute videos accompanying the lessons. This month I will be typing in and editing the Neophyte area. NOTHING is ‘live’ now but I will be offering a PRE-SALE for two days before going ‘live’ so that you get a discount. More on that later 😊
I have bought the domain camposanto.ca. I have added a page in the drop-down box under Meet VcToria on my website that is ‘live’ Link> The Hermetic Order of Campo Santo
Now how was your March? Normally I have one show behind me and am going on about how fast winter went!! Well, I still maintain that winter has shot by and I cannot believe Spring has sprung already. I do not think many shows will take place again this year so as soon as mid-April arrives, I will be setting up my out-door patio as I did last year with my office in the sunshine😊
For me other than time speeding by my month was GREAT. Now I often preach or advise LOL on waiting till your Personal Years in Numerology arrive to activate things. The stuff works well under the right energies that the Universe offers in under what I call ‘seasons’ Each one of you is in one of the 9 seasons. I write about this every January so do go to January’s link if you wish to figure yours out. See the button at the bottom of the Newsletter.
I headed into my Personal Year 3 on January 1st, 2021. This calls for CREATIVITY. I asked myself what do you ‘want’ to create? Hence, I waited to start creating the magic school and because I planted it in the correct energy it is absolutely going along smoothly.
NEXT, 😊 I waited till this year to create a nice bedroom in my basement. This had been my office and I always intended to move my office upstairs to my meditation room and move my meditation area elsewhere. Waiting for the correct energies is the key to no stress!! One of my favorite clients came by this month for a read. What made me ask her? I do not know I just asked. “Do you know anyone who does great drywall and mudding?” She says “Yes, this guy George does great work and is reasonably priced”. She calls me the next day with his number and I call and he answers the phone 😊 to make a long story short he came over that night and gave me a $2600 estimate for DIG THIS!! Raising the ceiling and making it a solid one instead of those tiles that just lift. Then creating walls as one of the back walls was cement, drywalling, mudding, and then painting the entire room a nice white. I accepted the estimate and he came over the next week and so far, the ceiling is done and drywall. He will be back tonight as the walls are now dry. PLUS, he called over his working friend and they first carried my HUGE 3 piece, extremely heavy, desk upstairs, then the bookcase, table, etc. Then they took my VERY heavy Nugabest bed downstairs and will move my queen bed [that is downstairs in my gym] into the finished room once done and take my furniture from the garage [two chests of drawers] and move them into the new room.
I may now go back to renting this new room on Airbnb OR I ‘may’ rent it to anyone who works in the oil fields that is not here all the time 😊 I will decide. OR I may just keep it as the spare bedroom. I now get to sleep in a cool room when the summer hits as the house has no air-conditioning and I have no plans to put any in. I hate air, I like to sit in the fresh air and my cat likes to go in and out when she feels like it. 😊
Talking about China, she was VERY upset as all the furniture was being moved. Alarmed is how I would call it. She sat at the top of the stairs and then followed them as they moved the stuff around. At times she screamed at them and I had to keep telling her we were not moving LOL.
Her access to her cat cage is no longer as the office room was how she climbed out. I will now buy a 3-foot set of pet stairs and set it up once again as the project is completed. Soon though the doors will be open all day and evening for her and she will be fine. She has already gone out for hours finding mice as I wrote below in the cat expenses 😊
Well, as I mentioned last month, Jackie and I would be going out for Indian food and this we did on March 7th. We went to Nosh down in the east end. Not overly impressed and I recalled I had gone there with my neighbor in 2019 summer on 124th street. I was not impressed then either. BUT!! My cooking skills for Indian foods are truly fine and as you will see in my vegan kitchen [below] I posted Dal. Do try it. I am doing a few months of Indian foods now as they are cheap and awesome to eat.
Reads were fabulous although I had more by phone and skype than in person. However, I firmly believe that when you do your passion the Universe takes care of you. They seem to come in clumps and that suits me fine. I do a whole lot of other stuff and then appear to work, work, work for a few days LOL.
Then on March 14th my son and grandson came and got me and we went down to Watari for a wonderful supper. I have the option of vegan sushi and such and they have the option of the Japanese food that my son truly loves. This appears to be our monthly outing as I tend to eat out once a month with my son.
I was thinking this month as to why I have a decent amount of money LOL. It suddenly dawned on me that I now only have one healthy cat with no need for vet visits. OF COURSE, I say and the realization hits. In October 2019 Venus passed and I was left only with China. In the last 7 years, 4 passed over. My vet bills were phenomenal as they became seniors. I hated letting them go but did as it became necessary. I held each one in my arms and let them go to cat heaven. But here is where the savings are now. Food is cheap, China does not even have one sign of arthritis or any other signs of illness except my thoughts that kidney disease may have just developed. I had a full panel of blood work done in April 2020 and she was fine then. Now I am saving all this money that I normally had paid out for the ones who passed over. I guess you can say the Universe is saying ‘save for Italy’.
Oh yes, Jackie came over for an ‘on the spur of the moment' supper. She texted me to go to Buckingham on Whyte but believe it or not, they do not take mask exemption cards so no more business for them from me. EVER!! And Watari was full sadly. Happy for them, but I would have liked to have gotten out and eaten. Instead, Jackie came here and I made french-fries and gravy and hamburger steak with beyond meat 😊 plus peas. Oh, and Jackie brought a bottle of wine so a fine dinner was had.
And that was my month. I ordered groceries as I really enjoy that personal shopper option 😊 had a few trips to the post office and of course early in the month went to the pet store and bought China's food for a month's supply. No masks needed to shop in these places 😊
Talking about masks LOL. Did you all see the recall on the ones made in China? Appears that the toxins used that was being breathed in by children [yes for all you parents who are forcing this on your kids] and teachers who had been breathing in this all day FOR DAYS ON END has been recalled by Health Canada saying ‘these cause permanent lung issue’ YUP. Do not believe me? Just google ‘mask recalls in Quebec’. I have said over and over, noses and mouths are meant to be breathed in and out of. It's how we live. Without air, you die within minutes. It is the most important part of life. Blame yourself if you get lung issues as it is the public keeping this going. But I have said to myself and others “I am sitting back looking at his with humor and will see where it goes.” In My Opinion column [see below] I say more LOL 😊
So, we begin another month that I do feel will have more lockdowns based upon the fear-mongering that is still be drilled into people’s consciousness. I note that only those who are still getting a full paycheque are the ones who agree with lockdowns. I wonder what our end result will be? Other than a MASSIVE recession with much loss. Well, know that if you went for tests when feeling well you are part of what is to come. Do not complain.
On the 12th of this month, I turn 68 😊 So glad I am up there in the numbers. Today [the 28th March] as I write this piece to upload and get the newsletter scheduled, I have lived in my perfect home for 7 years exactly. 😊
And lastly, as I wrap this up, my body chose to NOT even shed one pound this month. I had begun my daily walks as the weather warmed and that was shedding a couple of pounds BUT LOL the weather turned colder, my popcorn machine fired up again with butter and nutritional yeast as covering, PLUS my onion cake cravings returned and of course, all the cooking I do daily needs to tasted, eaten and experimented with. Hopefully, the weather warms, my walks resume and my gym will most likely look more inviting once the queen bed is removed 😊 More on the weight next month.
Meditation took first place as I always take care to activate that daily. I know it creates life as it should be, not as perhaps you want it to be. If you adhere to what you love to do then life will be a joy. Remember this and make changes not excuses. Time waits for no man.
Positive thoughts to you all until next month.
CHAT FROM VcToria
MY OPINION THIS MONTH
Some of my readers may be extremely surprised at my views this month but it is what it is 😊
First, I am NOT going for a vaccine at this time. Why? There are several reasons but let me tell you first that I would rather take a vaccine than wear a mask. Why? Honestly, I have no clue. I find people look extremely stupid in them; they do nothing as it would appear cases are still on the rise.
BUT!! I am not going to look for the reason I refuse this idiocy I will just find businesses that do not require them. And keep my loyalty to them forever.
However, I am VERY disappointed in people who say ‘I just want to fit in, I have to wear one my family makes me, etc., etc.’. VERY sad if that is how you feel as I have always stood up for what I believe in and rarely back down.
Onto the vaccines. Yes, I am past the age group that in Alberta has offered the vaccine. BUT!! Why would I line up for one when you still must wear a mask, stay away from people, etc., etc. I thought you said these are working LOL. If you have taken a vaccine then why can you not go back to ‘normal’?? OH YES!! I know why: some idiot decided that against all advice to make the booster [2nd shot] 4 months down the line. Clearly, this was not advised. So now using the same rules and control even with a vaccine you still cannot do anything. Makes no sense.
NOW!!! They are suddenly saying that if you have had covid and most likely you are still here, that one shot will do as your antibodies have already built up a resistance and the booster shot is all that is needed. MY OH MY!! What a bunch of hogwash if you ask me.
Next, I am sitting back and allowing all the fear-mongering that has now allowed almost every gullible person to rush for theirs. I will be following the data on these people. My best friend in Montreal has had hers. She figured out how to jump the queue she was so anxious to get it. Then since she had made 2 appointments and the 2nd was not canceled, she went for her 2nd shot 2 weeks later They refused to give it to her and told her to wait till the end of May. By the way, she said there were no line ups and it was very quiet yet she was still refused. Funny!!! [Not]
There are many opinions on these areas. I have never had a flu vaccine nor any other type of jab since my smallpox that I was forced to get when we moved to South Africa. [I was 8 years old]
I work with tens of thousands of people in the festivals and trade shows. Hold everyone’s hands and most hug me and I have NEVER EVER gotten ill. If you take care of your health you do not get sick. Plant-based is EXTREMELY healthy.
So now you know that I am neither for nor against this very strange action that has come out of an illness of 98% recuperation. If you wish to get it great. If you do not wish to then don’t’. I will bide my time and watch the outcome.
If, and when, I decide I will add my reasons in my Newsletter. Know that death [ the leaving of the physical] does not bother me in the slightest. I have instructions for China and if my next adventure is to come sooner then so be it.
😊 BUT!!!! For now, no vaccine, but as a VERY open-minded person, as many will tell you, I am extremely interested in the changes that may or may not arrive from this new type of experiment that the government is testing on all humans. Or those who are allowing it. Better than those poor animals are my thought.
BUT!! If anyone is truly tired of all this and the years ahead of us that show a bankrupt country then stop going for tests. The only reason this is being kept alive is the publics' fault and the media for the fear-mongering. People shut it down. Stay home if you feel unwell. Call an ambulance if you need one. Stop breathing in the oxygen that is clearly making people sicker than ever. Stand together for heaven's sake or this will never end.
I am waiting for the next announcement that the variants are too strong for the vaccine and are taking over. Then another 2 years of lockdown. You can prevent this by shutting down the testing. DO NOT GO.
UPDATE: Since I wrote this there has been the announcement I talked about above. Recalls on masks. Google it. Recall on masks in Quebec. Health Canada recalled them. Much like they will find lung issues with many in the future. I wonder what or who they will blame this on?? OR will they use this to find another vaccine LOL? People need to wake up. :)
I am 68 [this month on the 12th 😊] and I have not gone for any tests, do not wear a mask, hang out with like-minded people and guess what? I am still alive.
Positive Thoughts to You All Always, VcToria. THIS IS MY OPINION AND YOU CAN CHOOSE TO AGREE OR DISAGREE
China: She is in perfect health still. As I stated a few months back I think we may have stage one kidney disease that since I have experience in that area with a cat that has since passed over [at 21 years of age] it takes 3-4 years before the kidneys fail. I will not worry about it till I see some need to take action.
She sleeps a lot but is also ecstatic that warmer weather has come and goes to the back gate area and awaits all the mice that seem to make my yard a place of interest. Sad, as they never make it back out. She spends hours there with the patience of a saint. No vet bills have been needed for almost a year now. I had her blood work done last May and see no need for any checkups right now.
Cat Costs: I am now shopping once a month for food. Much easier and the costs seem to almost the same 😊 Cat litter was not needed. Treats came to $$7.35. Raw meat came to $18.82, dry food came to $32.12 and lastly, tinned food came to $69.30.
The Total monthly cost was $127.60

APRIL 2021 ASTROLOGY PLANETARY INFORMATION
CHINESE POWER ANIMALS
So, for a little change of character under the astrology: I thought I would flip to Chinese Power Animals. But first, let’s cover the astrological signs in correspondence to the Chinese Power Animals.
Keep in mind these are NOT Chinese Years but Chinese Power Animals. 😊
And a little about The Rat.
The Rat is very subjective about people places and things and no one can change his/her mind. His/her likes are either black or white; there isn’t much gray area in between.
He has strong ingrained opinions that cannot be budged. If the Rat feels betrayed, he/she will lash out at those he feels have abandoned him.
The gallbladder is the ruling organ and acupuncture meridian that takes the focus of this energy.
The Rat is a fabulous strategic planner when their energy is healthy and directed correctly. Using acupuncture by a well-practiced acupuncturist for the gallbladder will help with this. Also using herbs that relate to the gallbladder.
Note: VcToria is not in any way a medical expert in any area. She is not prescribing merely commenting.
If out of balance the Rat energy can cause a person to lose it and he/she will strike out with rage because rage is the emotion that brings anger to the surface.
Within personal relationships, he/she needs to feel unconditional love. When that is not forthcoming, he/she feels abandoned and betrayed on a deep subconscious level. A Rat needs to balance themselves.
To Balance: Meditation is a must for The Rat to understand the power they have inside them to balance the anger/emotions and need for ‘approval’ from others. Once they find their inner balance the anger removes itself from the emotional area. Foods that sit well with the power of The Rat are vegan.
Next Month: The Fox
VcToria's AWESOME Vegan Kitchen
In case you are new to my Newsletter, I just wish to say this "The first thing you eat in the morning feeds the brain". Remember this as you will find a HUGE difference if you start the day with green juice. I have done this for decades along with 3-4 teaspoons of hemp seed. I am never sick. Into a Vitamix: 2 green chopped apples, 4-5 stalks of celery, 1 cucumber, 1/4 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice, 6-8 cups water. Blend on high for 2 minutes or until all veggies are juiced. ENJOY. PS: Keep the skins, seeds and everything EXCEPT the lemon skins on the veggies and place in Vitamix.
Red Lentil Dal
High protein, vegan, and gluten-free
Yes, another red lentil dish this month instead of the cheese sauce I thought I would post. This Lentil Dal is AMAZING. Indian food is quick to make, cheap, easy, and highly nutritious. Try this rich creamy recipe either over rice, by itself, or with some naan bread.
I do suggest you stock up on these spices. I will be posting a series of Indian food as it truly is delicious when home-cooked. But better yet it is cheap, freezes VERY well, and can knock your grocery bill in half 😊
2 TBSP olive oil
1 onion diced
1 TBSP ginger I used ½ TBSP of puree ginger from a bottle as I am not a big fan of the ginger taste.
½ TBSP chili pepper flakes [or you can chop up a fresh red chili all de-seeded]
1 small tin of tomato paste OR you can chop up a tomato
1 tsp mustard seeds OR as I used 1 tsp dry mustard
2 tsp cumin
1 tsp. ground coriander
½ TBSP curry powder.
1 tsp turmeric
2 cloves of garlic OR as I used 2 tsp crushed garlic from a bottle
1 cup red lentils
3 cups of vegetable stock BUT!! I sued 3 cups of water and added Better than Bullion cubes 
1 cup of FULL FAT coconut milk
Salt and pepper to taste.
Start with a large pot it is easier to cook this in. Add oil and heat to medium. You can also use coconut oil if preferred. Add onions, ginger. Chilli, tomato, and coriander. Add a small amount of salt. Cook until the onions are sweet and golden. Roughly 5-6 minutes. Stir occasionally.
Add the curry powder and mustard. If you are using seeds then wait for them to pop. If you are using dry mustard powder then add the rest of the spices and garlic. Cook for another 2 minutes stirring and then add lentils [make sure you rinsed them till the white bubbles are nearly gone] stock and coconut milk. Bring to boil and lower heat. Simmer for 12 minutes. If the lentils are not quite soft enough then do another 5 minutes but check by tasting them.
Serve with a squeeze of lemon over it or not. This is YUMMY.
FREEZES WELL so make a huge batch for times when you just want to heat something when you arrive home after a long day. Just remember to take it out of the freezer before you leave :)
NEXT MONTH: Naan bread.
"NEW" MONTHLY BOOK REVIEW
HELPING YOURSELF WITH ACUPINEOLOGY by Geof Gray-Cobb republished by VcToria Gray-Cobb

APRIL 2021 REVIEW
Still no takers on sending me a book to review LOL. Onwards with my own.
This month I am covering the third republished book that I chose. This one was first published in 1980. Republished by me in July 2019.
Using ISO-BIONIC ENERGY from the planetary energies that are activated with just a touch of the finger is the intent of this book.
Anyone who has studied palmistry knows that each of the fingers is named after the planets, plus areas of the hands. Here, in this book, the activations of hand positions using a reflexology-type connection stimulate the power that ALL hands offer.
It is one of his more intense books and needs a thorough read-through before activating any of the positions and powers. As he put it in his autograph “the strangest and the best”.
A collector’s item for sure.
Please keep in mind that this is a republished one. His original books sell for up to $800 [ yup eight hundred dollars] These are the same books without the added ‘letters’ that he proudly added to his early books. I have also updated a few words, examples and added a spell of my own in the back to channel him in under the Pisces moon when I do my ‘group home meditations’.
The book is available with Amazon as a book or e-book BUT if you wish to have it autographed by my late Father PLUS have your own special channeled message and my autograph added to a personal page then you must order directly from my website on the webs store.
