The 9

Nine.PNG

A feminine introvert, I love my “me time”. Probably just as much as I enjoy living to write and tell my story. I have always been called an old soul; seen as a person wise beyond her years. My ultimate goal in life is to serve humanity. I desire better living on an equitable level, for all inhabitants of the universe.

I am an “earth” being; born an earth sign. By sheer will, fate and destiny; I was born in month 9. Born with an uncanny awareness that I AM supposed to be here. I was not always aware of my purpose; though life experiences, life circumstances and situations led me to know what I know.

My life lesson was forgiveness.

I live by universal codes of morals and laws of balance, doing my best to live life aligned with the universal laws of nature. I never truly understood my love of nature until I learned to get over my fear of natural things; like nature. Though I still struggle with the idea of insects, rodents and birds; I respect their existence.

I have a deep and empathetic spiritual connection to the underprivileged; the used; the abused. While at the same time; I am bonded to creative artistic expressions as well.

I 100% respect the universal law of love and service, and I hope that this reflection will become a catchy “in thing” that never goes out of style.

I am a dreamer as well as a doer. I always have been and I always will be. It’s how I’m able to stay UP, in a society designed to keep my kind down. This works for me.

I choose to heal and educate via written and verbal expression; to the benefit of the universe. I aspire to inspire via out of the box solutions of creativity.

My life lessons taught me how to be responsible for my own actions on all levels.

Most important in my personal life is trustworthy companions and friends; love and loyalty unlimited.

I AM # 9 –And I choose to make the best of my time!

~Peace~

Hard Times Token

The size and color of a 1 cent penny, the hard times tokens were considered unofficial currency during 1833 through 1843. They were worth $30 – $150; used during financial and political crisis of the Country.

“I Take the Responsibility” – are the words etched into one of many of these privately made pieces; the image of Andrew Jackson on a ship imprinted front and center.

During Andrew Jackson’s, presidential re-election in 1832, he called for a dissolvement of the SBUS (Second Bank of the United States).

After winning the election, Jackson successfully weakened the banking system. This caused a severe paper money gap, creating a domino effect within the banking pyramid. The issuing of an astronomical amount of bank notes, led to inflation.

In an attempt to correct the unexpected effects of inflation, Jackson issued an executive order, stating as of August 15, 1836, banks and all other merchants were required to accept only gold and silver coins in payment for public lands.

Instead this act became the death of economic prosperity because people began hoarding their coins as a form of self-protection and survival.

This hoarding of the coins, created financial troubles for all banks and all merchants; as they had no coins to pay out. Banks and business failed instantaneously, which led to the great depression.

With the ending of Andrew Jackson’s presidential term, and the beginning of Martin Van Buren’s term; came the Panic of 1837, better known as the “Hard Times.”
