Venus Retrograde and the Swamp of Love

American Transcendentalism and Refusing to Conform

In this week’s podcast, DK recounts his encounter with the man who told him about love that was a swamp so deep he couldn’t climb out. Plus Ralph Waldo Emerson on the Last Judgment and trusting our own inner genius. And how the ongoing Venus Retrograde is challenging us to speak up and stand tall in the face of opposition from the mind-controlled zombies in our lives.

Don’t Miss it!

I’ll be exploring these themes and more on Sunday and Monday. If you can’t make the live calls, sign up so you can get the recording:

    Thanks DK! I really think you should have your own radio show – you have a great voice for radio and much of interest to share, including your music. You are loved in Liverpool – Alan Ginsberg called the city ‘the centre of the creative universe’…

      Hi Jan, I posted the track, Ocean Moon Undertow, on my blog and also as a public post on my Patreon site. If you can’t download it from my blog, I’m pretty sure you can from Patreon – right-click or CTRL-click. If those don’t work let me know and I’ll email it to you. Also, want to make sure this is the one you wanted 🙂

        Thanks so much DK – I Love it, could listen over & over – it flows and you just have to move with it – is it from a CD of yours? xx

    Agreed! D.K., you should have your own Radio Show ~ Check out WIN – Wisdom and Intuition Network. Great, great sharing going on there that would support you and all who participate would appreciate all that you have to contribute. Love all that you do, dig the playing and singing ~ you rock! Keep on rock’in in YOUR free world ; ) that you so wonderfully have created. We are all trying to liberate from the gott’a make a living with a title and be ‘successful’ to be considered REAL important. I believe we are the ones that have got it right in though ( and or are trying to break away still ), we have woken up and those that are still living and accepting within the constraints have not yet awoken, they are on the easy path although it may be a trying, stressful,l unhealthful rat race it is known, it is much more of a challenge to go against the so called ‘NORM’ and just be, be who you are and do what you love. I applaud you! Keep it all going. And if you need a Radio side kick support ~ would love the audition ; ) Please keep posting, podcasting and sharing. You are appreciated!!!

      Thank you for the kind feedback, Tracy. I agree – in fact I think you might have said it better than I did (at least more concisely). It does seem like the mainstreamers have the easier path looking from the outside in. But that is changing – it needs to change for the health of individuals and the world. And we’re the ones changing it and I think we need to remind each other of that more often because it can be a lonely road. Especially – and I’m not just speaking about myself but of the experience of so many clients and colleagues – with family and those closest to us who want us to conform for their own reasons.

      I will check out WIN – I want to do a show with an umbrella that subscribes to BMI or ASCAP or whatever licensing organization regulates copyrights so I can spin some tunes in addition to singing and playing songs 🙂

      Oh, and speaking of synchronicity – see Katie’s comment – guess what album I was rocking out with to get myself warmed up for the pod? Weld – Neil Young and Crazy Horse live. Including Rockin’ in the Free World 🙂

      Hi Tracy, I have been telling my wife I need a Robin, speaking not of Batman but of the unflappable Robin Quivers of Howard Stern show fame. Not sure when I’ll actually be ready to act on this notion but it was interesting that you picked up on it, so – Edgar Cayce’s law (When you get a spiritual hit, take action) send me a bio or some clips or something that captures a bit of the essence of the sidekick part of you…and you’ll be first in the applications file.

    It’s synchronicity! Speaking of American Transcendentalism, the word of the day was vaunting and here’s the quote that accompanied it! And here’s to your own radio show!!
    The time is coming when all men will see that the gift of God to the soul is not a vaunting, overpowering, excluding sanctity, but a sweet, natural goodness, a goodness like thine and mine …
    — Ralph Waldo Emerson, “An Address Delivered Before the Senior Class in Divinity College, 1838,” Nature; Addresses, and Lectures, 1849

    • DK Brainard says:

      Ha! I love it. And I love that sweet, natural goodness. What a nice core value to bring back into society. Oh and I figured out I can get Vimeo on my Roku player. So…as soon as I get a bedroom finished in this house so we can watch TV at night without disturbing the kid’s sleep…your movie is going to be top of my list (finally!). Thanks Katie!!

    hey man 🙂
    good on you– 3 in a row ! ! ! … esp for a Pisces at this time– WoW !
    I agree with the others — a radio show is the way to go for you — sound is your medium– your music and of course your voice, coupled with your honesty gives one (me), a friend along the way during hard times….
    keep it up …. loved the emerson .

    • DK Brainard says:

      Thanks Caroline! Shooting for 4 this week….I sure appreciate your reflections. I’ve been trying to do more video stuff because people seem to want video. But radio/podcasting is a much more vibrant place for me. I find the images distracting and it’s harder to find the flow with video. I don’t watch a lot of tv or videos either – maybe it’s a Pisces thing, but I prefer the images in my mind to the images on the screen!

    Holy Bat Logici DK ~ right at the moment I feel more like Robin of the Holy Batman Fame than Robin from Howard Stern fame ….wa, wa..wa…because I have no Bio, no Video, only my instinct and desire to step out of my comfort zone. Hence my just suggesting to be your sidekick! I dig what you do. I even said to my husband – I just suggested DK needed a partner in crime – holy cow – another pun ( or 2)……jeez that could be too much, I really said a co- host …and followed that with but he really doesn’t need one because he is an awesome rambler all on his own and I appreciate ramblings~
    Seriously – I love to read and practice metaphysics – lived it hard for quite a while; my profession makes it tough!!! I still do my very best and practice faithfully ( can share more but wanted to get you a response ). Gemini ~ Jack of all trades, master of many. I play a set of 12 Crystal Bowls tuned to the “Ra” 424 hz frequency ~ body frequency for harmonic resonance. Believe in ascension, cosmic laws of the universe and I LOVE Classic Rock. If you feel this may be a good fit ~ say the word and I will create a video. Make me step more out of my comfort zone ~ I dare ya’! Holy Toledo – did I just say that!? I did because without a reason……

    • DK Brainard says:

      Hey Tracy,

      Regardless of whether it turns out to be a good fit, I double dare ya! We will both learn something in the process…and it sounds to me as if you really need to make a video
