he psychiatrist’s psychiatrist. The mortician’s mortician. The detective investigating the detective. Private Investigator (PI). Aleister Crowley’s astrologer. Psychic rebirth. Psychic regeneration. Plumbing the depths of the psyche. The Evolutionary Journey of the Soul. Complete soul overhaul. Complete psychic overhaul. Resurrect your own soul. Resurrect another soul. Necromancer. Grim Reaper. Revive your lust for life.

Hey, I know this cool place we can hang out…you guessed it, the cemetery. Shovel in the graveyard. Grave digger. The shady groundskeeper. The Butler. The person who knows all the inner workings of the estate. Dig deeper. Penetrating depth of insight. Piercing the soul. Profound inner listening. Shhh! Be still. Do you hear what I hear? It’s the blood coursing through your veins. *shudder* Okaaaay, I’m outta here.

Excessively intense. Obsessive. When he does X, he’s like a dog with a bone! He won’t let go. Not knowing when to let go. Not knowing when enough is enough. Messed-up love affairs. Intimate relationships with ridiculous emotional and psychological mind games. People who get off on messing with other people. You aren’t really turned on unless there’s some twisted component. There’s that cat, toying with the mouse again *eye roll*.

He suddenly understood the message of so many spiritual teachers that the only revolution that can work is the inner transformation of every human being.
― Stanislav Grof, Pluto in the 8th house [Tweet this!]

Relationships aren’t satisfying unless they bring you to the brink of psychological or emotional death. Trauma junkie. Recharging your batteries by feeding off other people’s trauma. Demanding peak experiences in intimate relationships as the norm. A demanding intimate partner. A controlling intimate partner. Someone who controls your personal information. Someone who creeps through all your stuff, sometimes when you’re sleeping, and sometimes right in front of you. What are you going to do about, huh? The type of person who wants to know your deepest darkest secrets, and your passwords. An uncomfortable probe. There’s just something about the way she looks at me that I don’t like. Why didn’t he leave? It’s not that simple. Hostage. Svengali. Didn’t we just meet on Tinder like a day ago? I don’t even know you. Just because you’re privy to someone’s secrets doesn’t mean you understand them. You might overestimate your psychological understanding and underestimate your psychological complexes.

The most buried of mysteries. Obsessed with penetrating the mystery. Obsessed with solving the mystery. Listen man, you’re never going to get all the answers. Killing the mystery. Jeez, tarot isn’t even fun anymore. Destroying privacy. Subversive. Obsessed with death. I must know what happens! Chilling obsessions. Sick passions. Dark desires. So, what do you like to do? Well, I’m so glad you asked! This is Charlie, he’s one of my mummified cats. There’s also Daisy, Lula, and Chaka Khan, and of course mom’s upstairs, duh!

Deep internal cleansing. Turning over all the rocks. You’re not scared, you’re petrified. Putrid. Rotten. Detritus. Where’s your composure? You’re decomposing. Your collection of petrified dinosaur droppings. Petrified wood (double entendre). What do you need to kill to make room for new growth? Chop off that gangrenous toe. What are you fixated on that you need to let go of?

Psychological wasteland. Purge the bad stuff. Purge dark thoughts. The ultimate purge. The ultimate Cleanse. The push to release all attachments.  The ulimate push to get off the karmic wheel and release all attachments. Pushing through a barrage of issues in one lifetime. Trash pile. The Garbage Man. Learning to compost. Reduce, reuse, recycle…everything. Make the most of what you’ve got. Play the hand you’re dealt. Go find the sieve and start sifting. Sort the good useful things from the bad wasteful things. Sort the gold from the lead.
