    Default Ebay bans magic potions, spells, curses and advice books

    Hmmm? This is interesting.

    Quote As of the 30th of August ‘spells; curses; hexing; conjuring; magic; prayers; blessing services; magic potions and healing sessions’ are banned merchandise for sellers, eBay wrote in their 2012 Fall Seller Update.
    I wonder what the real issue is?

    The title of the article is this;

    Auction site eBay bans sale of magic potions, spells, curses and advice books in bid to stop charlatans



    Isn't this a bit like name calling and perhaps a bit like discrimination? categorizing people in to a group of Charlatans?

    also;

    Quote The new guidelines also ban advice on any of the magic-related subjects.

    Ban also covers 'advice' on magic which could include merchandise for fantasy novels like Harry Potter
    This means J.K. Rowling latest 'Book of Spells' for Sony Ps3 may be at risk
    The article also refers to people interested in these things (magic etc) or involved in doing these types of things as "quacks".

    This really "disturbs" me, really struck a bad vibe in me this morning reading this.....

    Some may joke about this but it is quite serious in my opinion, this opens the door for an unlimited sale of items to be banned, even crystals and all gemstones could be banned as they contain "metaphysical" properties!

    Herbs and numerous other items such as religious cultural items may be banned too, as they may be declared to hold metaphysical or "magic" too....anything they want to ban they can just due to the fact that it may be a "charlatan" buying or selling it!

    This is rather outrageous!

    ...and, this is ridiculous in my opinion!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    This demonstrates that people are waking up or looking for ways to awaken. It also shows how the ptw are running scared of this fact. I'm liking that this will be another trigger for many more to spread the word.

    Also:

    Where do they draw the line on what constituite magic and devices? Rocks, crystals, gems will they be added to the list? Figurines, and which ones? Jewelry with healing properties? How about affirmations books/cards/notes/signs?

    It's another way to control people through their pocketbooks. This is the time of year where it's critical for sellers to move merchandise.

    Ebay, HQ location: State of Utah, United States of America. Location of the new HQ or center for spying on Americans. Mormonism, polygamy, Joseph Smith, and so on.

    Utah Nickname
    : "Beehive State"

    Beehive: FreeMasonry, secret societies, Egypt, bohemian grove, Demeter, and back to the Sumerians, and then back to the Anunnaki.

    Bye the bye, silentfeathers.... the Owl is definitely connected to all of this. A night hunting heat seeking missile of a centered and directed overlord carnivore, if there ever was one.

    I bet they are removing this from ebay because people keep returning their 'spell' because it didn't work. Can you imagine the feedback rating of someone who sells this stuff? 'I'm getting my credit card company to back out my purchase because I didn't become rich and fabulously wealthy like the spell I purchased said.' "The voddoo doll didn't work so I'm getting my money back and giving that shaman bad feedback!" I can hear it now. LO freaking L.

    I used to sell on ebay a lot but in the last two years they have made it almost impossible for the individual to exist on ebay unless you are running a retail store.

    About 15 and more years back, I figured that the point was to get an electronic point of control in every aspect of our coming lives. To be the point of 'flip' or a interface that all must pass through... in all interactions.

    To separate and divide into an individual oasis, on and in each person, so that all data passes through the hands and control of a given group, so that all data and all interpretation of this coming reality will be alterable via this method of being both the low level gears and the low level grease, for all human interaction. All human interaction which would naturally drift into being electronic.

    If you are not more observant and careful... THAT will be your 'new age of Aquarius' electronically driven future.

    For them to be your new electronic focusing and coloring lens in your womb-like electronic life. To be your electronic placenta.

    Almost there.......

    It can't work no matter how hard they try or how technological they get. The universe won't let it work. Humanity won't let it work. Spirit trumps materiality at every level, resonation and vibration of consciousness from higher 3D back to Source.

    I'm curious as to how many more companies are gonna follow Ebay's example; isn't wearing a cross with Jesus on it to feel "empowered" a metaphysical item????? A form of "magic" or an item to prevent "hexes" or "bad (evil) spirits" from harming or invading someone?

    This is quite stupid, Ebay has went a bit too far and has left the door wide open to basically police any item they deem to be "controversial" or metaphysical.....

    Will they ban holy water and bibles too?

    In my experience it's the mainstream stuff on eBay that usually disappoints in terms of "listing description" vs "actual product".

    "The following items are also being added to the prohibited items list: advice; spells; curses; hexing; conjuring; magic; prayers; blessing services; magic potions; healing sessions; work from home businesses & information; wholesale lists, and drop shop lists. "

    If I knew more about these items/subjects, I'd look at this as an opportunity...a door opening rather than a door closing!

    About 15 and more years back, I figured that the point was to get an electronic point of control in every aspect of our coming lives. To be the point of 'flip' or a interface that all must pass through... in all interactions.

    To separate and divide into an individual oasis, on and in each person, so that all data passes through the hands and control of a given group, so that all data and all interpretation of this coming reality will be alterable via this method of being both the low level gears and the low level grease, for all human interaction. All human interaction which would naturally drift into being electronic.

    If you are not more observant and careful... THAT will be your 'new age of Aquarius' electronically driven future.

    For them to be your new electronic focusing and coloring lens in your womb-like electronic life. To be your electronic placenta.

    Almost there.......

    It may soon be the time to need to give "Red" a holler; (the guy from the Shawshank Redemption)....he's the guy that knows how to get things.

    Well you can always buy direct. Ebay is a private company and they can control whatever policies they want. I think what we can learn from this is to be fluid, flexible, ever changing, as forcing things not to change is a waste of energy, which is something everyone hopefully would think about.

    At the end of the day, you can always make everything you want, yourself.
    Hi, I will look you directly in your eyes and tell you wholeheartedly that I love you.

    Will you run, or reciprocate?
