L'arrivée de scintillement de cristal Royaumes de l'hiver
The Arrival of Winter's Twinkling Crystal Kingdoms
Allusion l'arrivée glorieuse de l'Année de The Scarlet Reine
Alludes the Glorious Arrival of The Year of The Scarlet Queen
I must confess as a sign that is ardently the core of Fire, it was one of the most emotionally challenging years for me to have my vitality submerged in the endless Ocean of Poseidon's embrace. Lord Poseidon has always been such a dear friend and guide to me for most of my lifetime, however this year I felt as if he had given me over to the ocean itself to be cleansed, purged, detoxed and eradicated from all former relationships previously romantic and even those who are blood kin, to not only allowing me to see the very haunting view into my own abyss and the very darkest and most tortured parts of my soul, but to see that challenge erupt forth from the volcanic presence of my own Twin Flame by the end of the year was almost more than I could viscerally take.
Strength and Courage was the focus of 2015 to finalize all separations, and to prove to us with more than enough evidence as to whom was truly there for us just as we are, and who was lurking in the shadows to cause chaos and corruption as they say on the tides of the sea themselves "Loose Lips, Sink Ships." It was a permanent reminder of just how much I need to treasure my self worth, to not test those who I know already failed the trials of proving their worth in honesty, nobility and confidence to know once and for all that I will be earned, in ever conceivable form or not indulged in at all by those people, experiences, events and relationships that formerly held me in bondage, in unwanted or unwarranted shackles from those with serpent spirits that truly are only here for themselves. To feel this profoundly powerful and visceral feeling of Scorpio, Saturn and Venus in Retrograde for most of the year was quite daunting, leaving this Aries spent in all meanings of the word to leave me wondering just who I really am and what my path and purpose in life truly was.
In those moments as the Ball Dropped and my incredible Twin Flame surprised me walking in the door moments before to ensure that I never spend a New Year alone without a passionate kiss, revealed to me just how much love conquers all. We find time to be apart, we find time to be engulfed in our own darkness, but in the end as the sun sets on life and all of space and time, I am His and He is mine and W/we find ourselves eternally at Home in each other's embrace.
For those that chose evolution they felt themselves erupt and burn into cinders and ash, to fly reborn as the New Year rang in true for those aching for solid ground and a sense of land legs, we found ourselves firmly planted to our goals, dreams and recommitting to whats truly important in anyone's life, to find happiness, gratitude, and acceptance of life's unfolding process just as it is. This is the year that the Golden Age of Humanity has finally arrived, for those who've chosen to die we'll continue to see them mysteriously vanish, in favor of their own self-destruction and demise. Do Not seek them out, allow them to find themselves in the rock and hard place we've all been given since 2012. They were given the same opportunities and instead refused to sew seeds in their spiritual garden, now they will find themselves spiritually malnourished, while the rest of those who have focused on health, love, truth and purity radiate what we've wanted to become for eons now in every nuance and grand performance moment of our conceivable lives.
From Artists, Painters, Musicians, Dancers, Sirens, Performers, Writer, those Nomadic Gypsy Souls who Wanderlust until their Heart and Soul is Content. To those innovating the New World while paying Tribute to the Old World, will be the glorious Renaissance of Humanity that this World has Ever Seen!
Take your place, stand true in your vessel in full presence of the Godhead that you are a grand spark of, radiate your light, share your love with those who have earned it by paying tribute to the authenticity of your soul and find yourself surrounded by the family you've always hoped for. In this glorious year of Earth, it's time to get our hands dirty to dig deep, bury seeds and flowers and watch in awe as the gardens of our souls grow endlessly in divinity.
The Expansion of BellaBloodLust HQ Continues:
There's truly so much to celebrate at HQ, We've had quite the successful year that for any artist, model, writer and creative type can't be measured in ways that the neurotypical mind can grasp, we truly visualize and see the world and time in a circular way, not linear. For this profound spiritual understanding the universe rewards and plays in kind, knowing that we've glimpsed beyond the veil and realize fully that this is all but a dream within a dream, so why not pursue it fully knowing that in the end, more magick than you can possibly fathom is awaiting you, if only you'll believe that this roller coaster ride of uncertainty will eventually release one's blindfold to leave them in awe of what was created by their very own mind that's now solidified in the tangible physical world.
From celebrating 2 glorious years here at BellaBloodLustHQ to find that my passion for Comics and Cosplay has turned into a full blown creative outlet has been beyond my wildest dreams. From preparing multiple costumes for Cosplay Events to debuting my Comic, Trading Cards and Collectible Posters at Zapp Con 3 later this year, to opening a worldwide Parisian Patisserie that's been a long life dream of mine since early culinary youth, there's so many projects continuing and finding traction and foundation as the year begins. I've always wanted to open a bakery with Paris in mind, after exploring years of history and courtesans that inspired the Old World to live lavishly, I found myself creating my dream right before my very eyes to debut with you to enjoy whenever your sweet tooth needs a taste of Royalty.
In the midst of my modeling pursuits and continuing to expand my portfolio for professional purposes, I found myself published in not one but two magazines these year, one of which added to the international infamy of The Scarlet Queen and providing an entirely new level to my work and creative outlet that's now turned into an additional dream and career pursuit. For those inspired to adore me up close and personal Purchase The September Issue of Femme Rebelle Magazine UK & The October Issue of Delicious Dolls Magazine USA, Today. While lingering in the Autumn Sunlight with dearest friends and kinship family, the love of my life and I both found ourselves featured in the award winning Canne's Film Festival debut of "Steamdream" featuring The Gaslamp Society as we indulged in our traditional Victorian Cemetery Picnic, more on that wonderful success is found below along with an upcoming event you can't afford to pass up.
For over three years now I've been a devout naked reader, and as a writer and bibliophile it was more than exciting to hear news from The Read Naked Salon Waitlist Crew, that a dear friend of mine, the gorgeous Joie de Vivre, from The Valley Burlesque Society and those of us here at BellaBloodlustHQ, have been officially added to the waitlist and will be opening our very own chapter and naked reading salon very soon as well as Burlesque performances to adorn this liberating literary movement. By far the pinnacle of success for me as a writer came from the one and only A.N Roquelaure, however many of you may know her best as Anne Rice, after reviewing her stunning series of BDSM erotica known lovingly as "The Sleeping Beauty Quartet" she not only shared and debuted my insightful review to those of her fans and audience, but she also sent it as invaluable real life research to Television and Motion Picture Corporations to ensure that the world was well versed in both erotic fiction and real life accounts of The BDSM Lifestyle. As an Anthropologist this was an amazing credit to my work in the BDSM community for over the past decade and a half of apprenticeship, servitude as a slave, submissive, Switch and ultimately as a Professional Mistress and Dominatrix. As you can see The Scarlet Queen has many shades.
As the year dawns at 2016, I find myself overjoyed with so many projects that I've recommitted to to ensure their survival, and to hope that my work, visionary experiences and pursuits in art, performance, modeling and writing expands in ways still unseen to those of you still watching, with velvet adorned front row seats. From new content added to The Scarlet Gardens, more writing for not one but two novels in the process as of now, expansions in my Youtube Channel and so much more that I have cooking up in my sensual cauldron, there's only four little words that will be uttered in 2016...
Long Live The Queen!

As January arrives much swifter than I could've imagined, I find myself prepared for Winter at Fresno City College, and by ensuring that all preparations for returning to school are finalized, I must once more align my clients with my current schedule changes. Even as Spring approaches, to ensure many tasks are completed for clients in need I'll be changing these hours until June of 2016. As I'll be on campus Monday & Tuesday Evenings, I'll be CLOSED Monday-Fridays for appointments but will still be taking appointments, answering phone calls and booking new and returning clients from the hours of 12pm-8pm Monday-Friday and seeing clients who've booked appointments during the week on Weekends from 12pm-Midnight. As much as I dislike reducing my hours I realize this provides a chance for pondering clients to be more decisive with their choices as the year of 2016 provides chances for us all to be more courageous with our choices instead of allowing our lives to pass us by with indecision and uncertainty. Thank you to the wonderful clients I have that make it so easy to help you while also pursuing major life goals that will in turn allow Psychic Bella to become Psychic Detective Bella!
Summer Classes Debut & Workshops in Progress:
I've had numerous requests for Introduction to Psychic Protection, Introduction to Psychic Abilities, & Child Development for Sapphire, Indigo, Rainbow & Crystal Children for quite some time now, for those looking for Tai Chi with Animal Friends, visit the Featured Products section in The Old World Shoppe. As more materials were required for thorough research purposes before I can complete the following workshops and classes so until I can afford to do so these are currently on hold until further notice, but I'm positive that prosperity will change along with the winds and those materials needed will be easily required. I'll be focusing time to ensuring these workshops are completed hopefully by Summers arrival, keep your eyes peeled for announcements, until then this is still a work in progress.
The Rubenesque Revolution
Workshop Late Winter 2016
In addition to these wonderful classes I'm also in the process of developing a four class Self Esteem, Body & Sexuality Positive & Female Empowerment Workshop Series, that expands The Rubenesque Revolution to women locally and worldwide to gain invaluable insight, life changing exercises, assignments and group exercises to develop positive female relationships inside and outside the fourth generation wave of feminism. We must embrace the female goddess within and in turn embrace it in each and every single woman that is a walking goddess incarnate, whether she knows it or not. By engaging in a female gathering group workshop series that will expand your mind, body and soul to make room for self love, sacred femininity and sacred sexuality allows each and every one of us to bring about the next phase in human and female interpersonal ascension and global consciousness. By removing the stigmas, skewed viewpoints, and oppressive views of women worldwide we create the world we truly want to live in, the one that celebrates the beauty of woman in all her divine glory. This will be available as soon as additional materials are gathered for this incredibly special workshop series.

The Illusive Bella BloodLust
Old World Goddess in The Modern Era
As many of you realize I've been without reliable transportation since February of 2013, as much as bicycling and walking are guaranteed forms of travel, unfortunately in our rather large but not quite Metropolis city, the bus itself is quite atrocious, from hours just to reach the other side of Fresno, to the probably swifter comparison of an Amish with Horse and Wagon it's truly not a convenient form of transportation, that usually leaves one late, super early or profoundly confused as to why no bus has arrived at all. Another common mid-city factor is due to the middle-ground our current city population is in, they don't offer bus transportation once all the parties are ready to commence! In larger cities like LA or San Francisco the buses run 24 hours a day, very convenient for those that work evenings and night owls that enjoy a bit of fun in the night after a long hard day.
This usually keeps me limited to Tower District area as well as carpooling with friends and family on special occasions as it's the only affordable way to travel in this city after hours, with Taxi's costing as much as a half a weeks worth of vegan groceries for a 20 minute ride it's easy to see on a student's, psychic's and artist's budget as to why Psychic Bella & Bella BloodLust are truly home bound for the time being. Unless special preparations are made in advanced it's usually not possible for me to venture out after dark unless it's nearby. I am appreciative of the simplistic and old world way my life is lead currently but that doesn't mean it doesn't have it's common struggles, as time consuming as mundane and regular tasks usually are, they're quadrupled in time amounts when the city bus is the only method of travel presently, so do forgive me for my inability to see each and every one of you as much as I desire, as much as I plan, but as most of us that live and thrive in this part of the city already realize, once you live in Bohemia it's hard to leave just like the alluring draw of Moulin Rouge, we thrive in the twinkling lights, and creative expressions of art, music, dancing and performance art, so do forgive me if I find it hard to ever leave this place I truly call home.

Goals & Dreams for The Future
AA Degree in Criminal Anthropology
Anthropology is the study of human beings, it bridges the gap between societal, religious, cultural and linguistic gaps that have long been needed to be bridged to assure we all transcend to a more Unitarian existence, allowing the psychic to also become the scientist to not only broaden the world and understanding for clients in a more scientific as well as merging their already understood natural sciences to allow each field to finally accept and embrace each other regardless of terminology. This will eventually allow me to be able to help clients even with medical insurance instead of just having to pay out of pocket which is a big problem with Western Society, that Holistic Medicine is seen secondary to Traditional, in Eastern Societies it's revered and we wonder why everybody in India & Japan live to be 120 years old without cancer, diabetes or obesity. This also allows me to pursue and help my spiritual clients in all aspects not just the spiritual and religious sector, as much as I very much enjoy this, as a Shaman I've innately felt until all religions and philosophical concepts are understood and shared completely we all have missing puzzle pieces and bridges that need to be connected, this is where Psychic Bella comes in.
BS in Criminology & Victimology with a Minor in Psychology
This avenue of educational pursuits will allow me to transfer my abilities to assisting in more cold cases and other cases involving dead or alive circumstances in the field of victomology, by having a dual degree in forensics I'll be able to transfer helping people and various cultures, and religious backgrounds to be seen correctly by the criminal justice department and also bridge the gaps by solving cases as a Psychic Detective, after already assisting off-record with previous officers and actually being the key person that helped solve the cases, it's been told to me by more than a few officers that they'd legally use and pay me as an independent detective and investigator that will allow me to work from home, be called to crime scenes or domestic disputes and finally allow families to rest once they've had their case or common issue solved. With the best criminology lab and brand new facility here only in Fresno and West Virginia, I consider myself lucky to have the opportunity to receive such quality training and education that allows me to help but not become one of those typical cops, Sorry I quite literally refuse to participate I'm here to solve cases and help people, keep the pride to badges to yourself I'm just not interested. If undergraduate funding hopefully prevails above the congressional and bureaucratic red tape that most of us students find ourselves in, I'll consider pursuing a Master's Degree in my chosen fields, however as of now I highly doubt in this country at least that that will be possible without massive life long student loan debt, which I can't qualify for due to a family members desire to steal my identity before I was even allowed to use it at while being introduced to American adulthood.
Modern Gypsy Revolution! The Tiny House Movement
As much as I planned on staying in Sunny California after obtaining my Master's Degree, I realize now unless I plan on teaching or becoming a Doctor, the wasted money, time and effort isn't truly necessary especially in my unique carved path line of work. As many continue to see the devastating effect on water, lack of resources such as food, energy and even healthcare that is now a daily focus for most during the California Drought, the costs of resources continues to rise, and the value of career security or even the worker as more than property is completely lost in today's society. We're working much harder for far less than we've ever had ever before in human history and to be honest when jobs, healthcare, housing, education and even good weather and health dry up, it really starts inspiring one to think outside the societal box and embrace a movement that's been sweeping this country as swiftly as the Homesteading Act did in the early 19th century. There is a sense of hope, possibilities and endless opportunities when you're not enslaved to Water & Power, A Mortgage and Bills that continue to rise regardless of how much you personally sacrifice. I've always loved traveling and so has my Twin Flame, and for us the idea of packing up and taking off to better places when the economy tanks is much better than worrying about paying off a mortgage, car loans and student loans in the future if we're even able to get that far in our education with the current congress dilemma of their utter hatred for funding social programs of any kind. This is a long term goal, 5 or 10 at least, but it's a very real dream that we're ready to research, embrace and join, it just makes sense in a world that's always changing to thrive by adapting instead of dying for damaging views on the way things have to be thanks to the standards of The Eisenhower Era, no longer are we stuck in the kitchen while men work 9 to 5 and women serve them dinner, so why stay stuck in the same house if we're used to going out for dinner now? Many Updates coming, for now this dream sits in the crock pot of my imagination to simmer.
Successful in Business & Health
Currently as Psychic Bella & also Head Marketer for Imij Medicine, I'm truly busy 7 days a week, I currently accept appointments on Weekends only, for in-person spiritual bookings and online ones for international clients. I intend on keeping my Phone/Email inquiries open from Mondays through Fridays to ensure that weekend bookings are solidified and that clients are able to make decisive actions towards the betterment of their lives, as they say Carpe Diem, this is the theme of 2016. The rest of the time my energy is shared between collegiate pursuits, and assisting my love in our mutual dreams and business pursuits. This is why advanced planning is needed for social outings and even Shadows Into Light Spiritual Services Bookings, as the months and seasons change so does my traveling gypsy soul, and I'm truly needed out there in the big world so please join us and enjoy the ever changing and prosperous scenery. Besides these pursuits I have my enjoyable times as Writer, Model, Artist, Siren, & Performance Artist, these times are few and far in between but as time goes by and opportunity knocks I'm grateful when good health is along with me to pursue these dreams.
New Business - The Grand Opening Of:
Strawberry Coquette's Wild Bohemian Patisserie
As I approached my 3 year Vegan Anniversary I found myself elated to expand my personal baking business into a legitimate side-business; for over two years now I've been perfecting and concocting the most profoundly delicious vegan desserts and have even now expanded to Gluten Free, Raw, Paleo-Vegan Friendly Desserts! After receiving serve-safe certification in food courses to ensure that I know how to conduct a healthy and food safe kitchen I found that having all of these incredible, healthy and dietary restriction friendly recipes to be too good not to share! After many compliments and encouraging words from friends, family and even complete strangers that are 1000% against desserts without dairy, eggs or animal products tell me that my baked goods are the best thing they've ever tried, I've decided to turn my top recipes list into a menu for an at-home place to order bakery prepared and shared by your's truly; Strawberry Vixen. As much as I intended to have this venture up and off the ground before Winter, unfortunately a few business related investments are needed to ensure that my decadent vegan treats are served fresh to you at the highest quality possible. So hopefully by Summers arrival a cute little pastry cart pushed by Strawberry Coquette herself will be wandering around Tower District to tease and tantalize those who crave a taste of Paris.
I have to admit it's been quite the roller coaster ride, for most of my life P.C.O.S has ruled my life, after a tubal ligation last year I had to then endure recalibrating these hormones that went from nearly depleted to insanely voracious all on a moment's notice, and usually between menstrual cycles and the joys that come along with PMS. Fortunately with only 1 instead of 3 Emergency Room visits this year due to a cyst burst and severe pain, I have to admit things are getting better, slowly but surely, and as I await to see if my former Cushing's Syndrome a rare form of pituitary cancer is officially in remission, I find myself focused on balance, of mind, body, soul and most importantly diet. With the wayward hormones of last year causing my energy and vitamins to tank once a month I found myself craving meat again, so transitioning to ovo-lacto-pescatarianism, once a month during my rabid cycle was what I relied on for the last eight months of 2015. As pain and exercise don't go well together I also had to relax a lot more on my health regimens that desired, allowing me to relax, and retrain myself to be patient and kind to my body even more so than I already am. As my energy has tanked a bit due to this change I've chosen to go back to veganism, as vitamins are no longer an issue nor is health or weight. If anything I've gained a bit back and as much as I'm truly fine with that, I'd prefer to stay at the weight I initially hit, it's what helped me to feel more mobile, agile and ready to pursue athletic dreams once more such as Burlesque. So as I just received stellar reports back from both urine and blood tests showing that the pain endured each month isn't a side effect of a cancer coming back to ravage my body but just what happens when cycles and hormones are still balancing, I embrace the days where health is optimal and when times aren't as fluid and effortless, I've formed regimens of pure, unadulterated relaxation that have allowed my creative self to express in many old and new facets while also giving me more time to let ideas simmer before instantaneously jumping at the first second of innovation to pursue yet another project that hasn't quite yet been finished. Slow and Steady wins the Race, this is the lesson of the Turtle, my Totem Animal this year. I embrace this time in life more completely than I ever have conceivably before.
Ringing in the Golden New Year and Age...
with The Sun King and His Bella Luna
That day we decided to take time apart, to let a break take place to ensure that both of us felt and identified what we truly wanted, needed and were lacking together and apart to reveal to me how much this deity in flesh form truly cares for me, loves me unconditionally and just like me the fear of uniting with somebody so much like myself, is by far the most rampant run inducing feeling one can ever be overwhelmed with. You see being Twin Flames, isn't easy, by any accord, you'll feel your heart, mind, soul and very essence of spirit break, shatter, burn, return to ash and be reborn more times each moment you're together than you ever will in a lifetimes of death's and rebirth's in a collective consciousness grasp of reality and the supernatural. To wonder if it was He this time that was still growing, unable to provide what He truly wanted to generously give, made me realize that if anything I took so much longer, and tried to rebel against true love more He ever conceivably had in our entire relationship, the one now shared for the previous three years, and the ones we shared eons and centuries ago. To see that at the time my much larger heart could consume this darkness, accept Him just as He is, and to just Love and Be Loved in return, promised His soul that as much as this hurts presently to love so deeply, to hate somebody so vividly in some ways because of how good they are for you on ever conceivable and mysterious reason that plucks one's soul like the strings of a haunting violin.
After saying "See you later" instead of "Goodbye" as I knew in my heart and soul this wasn't the end, just an end in our bad habits, our desire to be alone because others told us for so long that being alone is all we ever truly deserved. We decided a week apart would be plenty of time to see what we wanted, how we wanted to live, whether it be together, apart or somewhere in between as we have been now for the past 3 years. After a mere 12 hours apart I realized he left his much needed tech gear at my place, so I found time to take it over to him, to then have him take me home hours later ensuring I was safe, loved and protected. After wishing Him a Happy New Year unsure of just how we'd spend it together or apart this year, I was overwhelmed watching the New Year's Eve parties wondering just what our actual story would tell if there was a tale to tell sometime soon at all. A half hour before the clock struck Midnight, the door opened and my composure of hope and love knowing somehow this wasn't the end of our tale, turned to tears of gratitude and love and an eternal embrace whispered with "I could never let you ring in the New Year alone." We laughed, I cried, we enjoyed the festivities and our lips met passionately after the ball dropped. Sure nothing is perfect, as Twin Flame love isn't about perfection, its about loving an imperfect person perfectly and finding yourself in them all over again with each moment shared in honesty even in anger and tears, not at one another but aloud at ourselves when we find that the world, our past and old skins have tried to come back all at once. Apologies for hurt hearts were given generously, knowing that one bad moment in three years is never the reason why to say Goodbye is a constant reassurance and realizing that no matter what W/we will always be Home in one another's loving embrace, makes this cold season and at times cold world, all the more inviting.
For those who've been through the mires of hell and purgatory that was 2015, you have proven to yourself and the cosmos that you exhibit the strength of the Gods and Goddesses, and for those who still believe you deserve a love affair that will last centuries, eons and even lifetimes, keep dreaming, your Twin Flame is coming, be ready, be prepared because this connection I confess is beyond words, but your soul will instantaneously know when you've been able to effortlessly overcome every difficulty in your life and within yourself effortlessly in the loving arms of your Divine Twin Flame.
Until We Meet Again...
