My name is Tracy Lyn Grigonis (My friends call me Tré) born on December 13, 1962 - in San Rafael, CA. Yep, a San Francisco Bay area native. My parents met in an art class at the College of Marin, and later both became fine artists. He changed the spelling of our name to Gregonis in the 70's. I grew up in Sonoma county in the 60's & 70's. I started singing at an early age and spent years singing in big Pentecostal gospel choirs. I majored in Psychology & Business Administration and found our education system limited, debt enslaving and dull. I wrote erotica for a few years under a secret pen name. I kissed a few toads, married and divorced a couple, so I kept the name Taylor. I never had any kids.
I spent years in vocal training. I studied with Raz Kennedy (Bobby McFerrin), The Jazz School in Berkeley, CA and studied with David Stroud (Seth Riggs-Speech Level Singing). I worked as a lead vocalist in Rhythm & Blues, Americana bands, Big Funk Corporate Dance Bands throughout the 80's & 90's. Jazz then became my true passion. I am a working jazz vocalist and do event planning and office contract work by day. If you have found yourself visiting the "Fillmore Jazz Preservation District of San Francisco", you may have heard me croon with some world class jazz musicians. Since 1999, The Dangerous Martini Quartet, Ruben Salcido (saxophone), Mark Petrella (bass), Dean Cook (drums), Doug Wendt (guitar) and I have been keeping the cocktail movement alive and well in creative ways. Abstract Acrylic & Oils helped me in the 80’s & 90's in the Sausalito art scene. My new mediums are ARTCARS and Mid-Century retro inspired atomic bar, home, fashion and "Glamping" accessories.
I left out the yucky parts. All I will say is, since the age of 8, I have lived daily with PTSD, Depression and Severe Dyslexia. With no support or help, I somehow made it through on my own. Later in life, I went through ALL of the treatments and drugs the medical industry could "Practice" on me. You see those drug commercials and hear them rattle off all of the "Side Effects?" - They are EFFECTS. They almost killed me. I fired all of the doctors, changed my diet and began to simplify my life. It took me 9 months of withdrawals and detox to get off of the prescription medications. I did it alone, against the system. It was rough, but I am still here and have found new ways to manage. I know there are others out there going through this, you are NOT ALONE. I sing the shit out of the blues. : )
I have spent years recovering from my childhood and on a path of self discovery. I got into psychology, linguistics, the work of Byron Katie, Nathaniel Brandon, Carl Jung and the works of Richard Bandler and John Grinder. I have also explored deeper ways of healing and learning through sacred teaching plants. In the 90's, I became a Master Nero Linguistic Programming Practitioner and Certified Hypnotherapist. I even worked for NLP Institute Comprehensive/California and Anthony Robbins & Associates for a time. I love brilliant minds and have had the honor of studying some of the best mind manipulators out there. I learned a whole lot of good stuff, but mostly that doing a private practice was not my thing. The study of consciousness and the unconscious mind have been my life's mission. The true meaning in the study of the occult is to go deep within ones psyche and find the hidden spark of the divine within yourself. This opens your eyes to see the grand truths and the grand illusions. We are all in trance most of the time, being out of trance and knowing the difference is the key. Being able to see the grand manipulation of consciousness and spot those who know how to manipulate are my hobby.
After years of grieving, healing, studying and finally just sitting and accepting the darkest most disowned parts of my identity, I found that simply listening to nature and being patient and compassionate with myself greatly relieved my symptoms. Human nature is basically good, kind and cooperative when not living in an environment of fear, separation or scarcity. The spirit of Humanity is fierce and strong and can handle the truth. We all can, but mending a wounded soul can take time. I don't believe that depression is a disease. Real depression happens to you when you believe that you are helpless and hopeless and stop feeling lovable to yourself. You are your soul mate. You are worth loving and saving. Every moment you re-choose to appreciate your adorableness. Only you can do this for yourself. It is from this place that you begin to start living a fulfilling satisfying life.
You were born free to this world and you like all creatures are here to love and govern yourself and help care for one another. Loving yourself and knowing you can rely on yourself is the key. Taking real responsibility for yourself and understanding what self respect and "Self ownership" actually is would not only change the quality of your life, but also change the world as we know it today. Taking real responsibility begins when you recognize "The Trance" you are in. The GRAND 'CON' TRANCE that is being played on you. - AUTHORITY IS AN ILLUSION SET IN PLACE TO CONTROL YOU. It is an old trick used on folks for thousands of years. It's a con. BELIEVING IN AUTHORITY IS A MISTAKE. Giving someone absolute unquestionable authority over you makes you their slave. This is how the abuse of power happens. They do it because they can. They do it because you let them.
The need for authority and a government is a myth imposed on you by the same bullies that keep enslaving you into believing in their system. You don't need them and never did. Stop giving them your freedom, stop giving them your votes, stop needing to be rescued by some big magical power, stop letting them take your money via taxes at gun point, stop consuming their poisons in your food and GMO's- don't buy any of these Monsanto owned food producers, the FDA is not looking out for you. Take your money out of their banks - use a local Credit Union.
Stop buying from their corporations - shop at local family owned markets and stores, you have the right to defend yourself physically when wrongfully being abused by those in authority abusing their power, you have the right as a police officer or solider to not follow orders if they are immoral or unethical or just plain inhumane and wrong, you have the duty and right to arm yourself and defend yourself and others by all means necessary. Stop letting them over medicate you, and over vaccinating your babies. Stop borrowing money and paying them interest, unplug your programming and get rid of your television, stop believing in the propaganda and corrupt media and the disempowering system WILL DISSOLVE FROM THE INSIDE. That is how we change this corrupt system once and for all.
Trust in yourself and do not buy the lie anymore. If you and the generations of those before you were not being manipulated into living in a constant state of fear, separation and scarcity, we would all have more capabilities to create what we need, to feel safe, and to thrive and have a sense of community and belonging with greater self expression and wiser more spiritually evolved ways to protect ourselves and one another. Think about it, if the money allocated for all of the worlds National Defense Budgets for wars were spent on clothing and feeding and caring for every man woman and child on this planet for just ONE YEAR, IT WOULD and it would give a brand new beginning to every person alive on earth and empower the soul of humanity to remember what it feels like to have everything you need to be to begin a new start.
The psychopathic "Predator Class" control freaks that are in positions of power all over this world have lost their grip in their attempts to rule over you because you hold all of the power to their game and YOU NOW ARE AWARE OF IT. It's the biggest con of all time. Protesting may feel good, but it won't change the minds of the very real psychopaths in power from wanting to sit on their thrones and rule over you. You can yell all you want, but there are wiser more effective ways for humanity to stand up and take it's power back!
To really be effective at protesting, start with doing it personally with each decision you make in your daily life with where YOUR money is going. Protest by your non-participation. Give them no power, they have none without you. Remove yourself from their game. Just because some conservatively dressed mafia men and women scribbled down some words on a piece of paper, and decided to call the scribbles "Laws", does not give them the right to point of a gun in your face and make you obey them. It does not give them the authority to rule over you. You believing it, makes it so. STOP COMPLYING WITH THE GRAND ILLUSION.
You are an intelligent, rational, independent, kind, fair and responsible human being, when you and yours have everything you need. You are being manipulated to not trust yourself or others. You are being deliberately manipulated on a grand scale to not have what you need and to think you need authority to rule over you to survive. These false beliefs create it. You can take much better care of yourself and your loved ones without corrupt authorities ruling your life, livelihood and freedoms. Giving away your freedom for the illusion of "More Protection" from the Rulers only tightens the fear collar they have around your neck. The fastest way to stop them from robbing you, sending your children off to be murdered at war and enslaving you in their debt system is by not buying into it anymore. Have you noticed the very oppressors that claim to be protecting you from terrorists, have become the very terrorists you need protecting from?
You were born free on this planet, this is your homeland - Why do you need to pay oppressors to live here? You don't, and the criminal and political predator class and their "Hired Thugs" time has come to an end. YOU CREATE THE CHANGE BY TRUSTING IN YOURSELF AND BY BUILDING GOOD RELATIONSHIPS WITH OTHERS. Create your own better, efficient and healthy communities and become self governing together. The more people we empower, the faster and greater the change will be. The less money they make off of us, the faster their false structure will crumble. Prepare for the collapse. Arm yourselves with the best guns, ammo, technology and surveillance that money can buy and learn how to use them safety and effectively because you will need them for protection and self defense. Know your enemy. Let's gather our local communities together and protect one another.
Our very planet Earth is in a grand state of change as well as all of the planets in our solar system. Our unusually still Sun during it's solar 24 maximum is playing a very large part in this. There is a huge geomagnetic shift happening inside our planet that is very unstable. A grand correction is about to take place and may even happen in our lifetime. A grand purging of a predatory parasite hijacker unseen force that has been feeding off and exploiting humanity for thousands of years will be vomited out of our world and consciousness. A grand correction from the inside out, once and for all. Prepare. Trust yourself, believe in yourself. We need one another. Learn how to spot a sociopath and psychopath and watch your back. Let's share and trade what we need together. Let's grow our own food and create self sustaining communities. Let's build a better world for our future. Treat others as you would like to be treated. Teach our children these truths and we will have a truly free future. Millions are waking up and remembering the truth of who they are all over the world, Self Governed Free Individuals.
Educate yourself and each other on how to become self reliant and less dependent on the system. Learn to fish, hunt, grow food, can food, purify water. Learn how to negotiate well with anyone by creating and having something useful of value to trade. Respect yourself and feel confident and respect others. Protect yourself and one another, we are strongest standing together as a whole. You are free, you are loveable and you are not alone. Our old identity is being dissolved. We are rediscovering who we really are. Life is just a ride, make it the best ride ever for yourself and those around you, we are all in this together.
May you enjoy what ever comes from my brain, voice, words, kitchen, spirit and artistic creation of silliness & heart. I love you and I encourage any input, responses, wisdoms, recipes and really weird stuff you want to hurl my way.
Very Truly Yours,

"Civil disobedience is not our problem. Our problem is civil obedience. Our problem is that people all over the world have obeyed the dictates of leaders and millions have been killed because of this obedience. Our problem is that people are obedient all over the world in the face of poverty and starvation and stupidity, and war, and cruelty. Our problem is that people are obedient while the jails are full of petty thieves and the grand thieves are running the country. That's our problem.
