What if Your Memory is Stronger than You Think? What is Normal Anyhow?  

What’s that word? It’s on the tip of your tongue?
You’ll remember it at 2 a.m.
You’re not going crazy, right?

You’ll feel a whole lot better about your aging brain if you read:
Remember: The Science of Memory and The Art of Forgetting, by Neuroscientist and Alzheimer’s disease specialist Lisa Genova.

Genova shows us how our brain operates to create and retrieve our memories and knowledge.
Various kinds of memory are processed and held in different ways.

Learning data through repetition is called semantic memory.
That missing word or lost name is somewhere in your semantic memory – which is not the most reliable, as we age.

Muscle memory, created in your motor cortex through repeated muscle movement, is one of the reliable types of memory.

We hold our brain in high regard, and we tend to expect it to do everything perfectly.
But the brain was not designed to cover everything.

According to Genova, the brain is not designed to

  • remember people’s names
  • remember a list
  • remember to do something later (“prospective memory”)
  • remember the exact details of an important event in the past (“episodic memory”)
  • keep track of everything we ever encounter

Let yourself off the hook for all of the above, and understand you’ll have to help your brain with those.

Mark your calendar as needed.
Use checklists. (That’s what we do in surgery to keep track of all our tools, inside and outside the belly.)
Put up reminders, alarms, chimes for reminders.
If you need to bring along an item today, put it at the door (as you’ve been doing already, Ms. Brilliance).

Genova says it’s normal to walk into a room and forget what you came for (especially for persons of my age).
No need to worry yourself about that.

After all, there’s a lot more stuffed into your head now than there was, decades ago, right?

(Personally, I have never cared to remember the names of the latest movie stars, and my family looks askance at me. Ask me if I care. I have other priorities in my memory bank.)

Have you noticed that your memory stays strong on the topics you really care about?
If something is meaningful to you, you will retain it.
When you give your full attention to something, you will remember it.

To create a strong memory, you start with

  1. attentiveness – you care about this, whatever it is.
  2. Your prefrontal cortex encodes it.
  3. You then send it to the hippocampus of the brain to consolidate it
  4. and place it into a pattern of neurons, unique to that memory.

When you recall the memory, you use that pattern of neurons to retrieve it.
(You might even watch that happening, several tangents converging to firm up that memory.)

It’s true that the brain loses some of its sharpness as we age, but that does not mean we’re slipping into Alzheimer’s.
If you can’t find your car in the parking lot, that’s probably normal because you weren’t paying attention when you parked it.

But if you’re standing there holding car keys, and you don’t know what those keys are for, then you might have Alzheimer’s.
(That’s not a diagnostic test . . .)

And let us remember –
Forgetting is a great service the brain does for us, especially to release traumatic memories.

Finally, Genova gives us some great tips on:

How to boost a stronger memory and brain function

  • stimulating hobbies
  • learning new things
  • using your neural pathways and laying down new ones
  • sleep and exercise
  • healthy engaged lifestyle, active social life
  • hydration is vital
  • healthy foods – veggies, greens, olive oil, legumes, whole grains and fish
  • Chronic stress impairs the brain, so use meditation to de-stress.

How to Relax and Enjoy Life even in These Troubled Times – Dr. Peebles

What if you truly had a way to be happy despite the world crashing down around your ears?

Every week I get bogged down in one way or another.
But every week I receive awesome encouragement and a fresh start, a lighter heart, when I listen to Dr. Peebles through trance medium Summer Bacon.

I totally appreciate Dr. Peebles’ messages, his insights and his broad perspectives.
He sees what’s happening with us and our planet, more clearly than we can see (down here in the trenches).

He is always verbally embracing everybody, and bringing a lot more love to the planet.
He asks us to do the same, whenever we can.
He is for everybody.
He is not against anybody.
He is inclusive.
He and his heavenly friends love everybody.
He is true wisdom in action.
He is humble. He is but one of many in “the band of angels,” and he reminds us that he is always still learning, as are we all, on our eternal journey of love and light.

Summer asks a mere $10 for this hour of wisdom and beautiful insight each week.
She offers tons of remarkable archives and free teachings. She doesn’t ask you to sign up for a package or anything.
If you see an interesting topic, try that mp3, that’s all.
(You can even send in a question that may be drawn and answered.)

But all these recordings are filled with Divine Love.
All of them make me feel better and stronger in my spirit.

This is the way I’m getting through the many challenges of these pandemic years.
Dare I say years?
Well, when you hear the news from the higher realm, you’ll see what I mean.
And it’s okay.
All will be well.
At the same time, it is vital that we level up our skills at loving our self and others.

Dr. Peebles helps us bring more love into our hearts.
He helps our heart to teach our mind.

Is it strange to listen to a spirit?
I don’t find it strange.
It is a time-honored tradition throughout history, in the writing of sacred scriptures and many other areas of life.

The heavenly realms do speak with us, if we have ears to listen.
You see it in the coincidences of your own life.

So many coincidences, in fact, that you know you are receiving divine help.
It’s not your imagination.
It is beyond that.
Things unfold in clever and surprising ways.

Perhaps not every day, but often enough that you find yourself communicating with the great beyond, with a dearly departed friend, with the divine helpers who assist you, and with the Source of all, Who infuses you.
Yes, You.

I have so enjoyed transcribing part of his message each week, these many months (see those archives).

At this time, Summer Bacon’s dear friend and first transcriptionist, the delightful Bev Scott, is returning to her role in writing the weekly excerpts again, on Summer’s newsletter (sign up here in the pop-up).

Bev Scott is a wonderful healer. Check out her beautiful Simplicity of Spirituality website.

Bev has written awesome books on Toning: Channeling the Light Within to heal yourself (the book with mp3 is currently free!),
and Simple Spirituality – Your Guide to the 5th Dimension.

Welcome back, beloved Bev!

Since Bev has returned to her post, I might not report Peebles’ scoops as often as I did (or who knows, I might, as Summer graciously left that invitation open).
But for sure you’ll want to know about these past two weeks:

Dr. Peebles Speaks…
September 1, 2021 session (click to get it)
Dr. Peebles through Summer Bacon

Every day is a gift, and you are the gift in it!

  • What happens to people (some) as they awaken
  • What happens energetically when you plug into happiness OR fear
  • Why it will be more difficult to remain negative in the new energy of our world
  • Children coming in to teach non-violence
  • How to work with the cells of the body (because they work for you)
  • New eating habits as we awaken
  • Human rebellion against robots and technology
  • The next minority on planet Earth
  • Why it’s okay (and important) to love yourself first
  • How to create a new reality
  • and so much more!

One part I loved from Sept 1, the part that keeps playing on my mind, is that every cell in our body is a spirit in itself, doing its best job for us. Every tiny being has consciousness of its own. I feel like I can talk with them more deeply now. (They are my peeps, my team of trillions – and yours!)

But this session, like all of them, is loaded with important info and inspiration.
Get the Sept 1 mp3.


Peebles Speaks…
September 8, 2021 session (click to get it)
Dr. Peebles through Summer Bacon

From Summer: I always send these sessions to my Dad and Bev to listen to before I put them online. It’s a way to check for audio quality, and also to just assure me that all went well. Just minutes after my Dad started listening to Dr. Peebles’ part of the mp3, he called me and said, “Oh my God, Summer! This is the most important session Dr. Peebles has done so far!” I listened later, and I have to agree. This is…

A Very Bold message about our world affairs. Dr. Peebles doesn’t hold back, and speaks about:

  • Hang onto your hats! The energy is accelerating, and it will be wonderful (if you slow down)
  • People taking back control of their lives
  • Admission and administration of fear
  • Why you have charge over your destiny
  • New “viruses,” more lockdowns, uprisings and strikes
  • Why the human heart is stronger than any weapon
  • Creating a deep, personal and abiding relationship with God
  • Why you were sent to earth
  • Are humans smart?
  • Quality over quantity of life
  • How we have been conditioned to not love ourselves (and why we should, now more than ever)
  • meditation, and so much more!

I keep listening to this one, the past couple days, and I can’t begin to tell you which part is most awesome to me.

Like I say, Peebles helps me shift my attitude, my energy, into more love and bliss, every time I listen to him. He helps us to live in hope and faith.

The energy of our planet is now accelerating – challenges will abound.
We are feeling them already.
We are called on to help each other.
We need each other more than ever – and we always will, from here on out.

Hang in there and learn how to handle the changes.

If you are at all interested in Peebles, do not miss this one!
Get the Sept 8 mp3.

“God Bless You, indeed!”

Feel better . . . and don’t forget the free teachings available.

Find some Fun – Here is a Crazy Surprise in Istanbul

In these crazy times, we need to find fun wherever we can.
I discovered some new-to-me comedy writers.
Sometimes I blow bubbles on the porch for a moment.
Or find a new route to walk.

What do you do for fun?

Since the pandemic started, hubby and I have enjoyed a daily story-time, based on our past travels. I read aloud from my old journals, and we both recall extra angles and memories from each long-ago day.

Here’s one of those days . . .

November 1980 – our Surprise in Istanbul

After a 36-hour bus ride from Athens to Istanbul, my husband Gary and I strolled through the Turkish city, past the ancient dark wood houses, into the courtyard of the famous Blue Mosque.

Here came a guy who wanted to be our guide for 100 Turkish lira (about $1.20). We decided to splurge on it.
(We’d been traveling on eight dollars a day for each of us, in that 1980 world of scrappy paper maps, no cell phones, youth hostels, and flop houses. We packed light, with only two changes of clothes and the shoes on our feet. Plus a pup tent and sleeping bags.)

Sultan Ahmet the First built the Blue Mosque between 1609 and 1616, said our guide. It is the only mosque in the world with six minarets.
It had a huge central dome flanked by four half-domes around the sides, all decorated with blue Iznik tiles.

The guide took us to the main entrance.
We removed our shoes and left them in the shoe racks with the men at the door (like we always did at the mosques, and the guys waited for a tip on our way out).

Under the great vault of the central dome, the guide told us all about the place, showed us the Turkish carpets on the floor, all of which are gifts (some are 400 years old). The floor felt cushy under our stockinged feet.

The walls and columns displayed the beautiful simplicity of mosaic tiles in geometric designs and eight-pointed stars. Small arched windows encircled the bottom edge of the massive dome.

He said that on Fridays, the holiest day of the week, the Imam (leader) stands halfway up the pulpit stairs (out of humility). The service consists of reading and explaining the Koran and praying together and alone.

The place was beautiful and nearly empty, this time of the afternoon.

We went out the main door again.
My shoes were missing.
My thickly cushioned, sturdy, soft and comfy snow boots.
Gone, disappeared!

Left in their place sat a pair of stiff curled-up old black leather shoes.
Had they been lying in the sun for months or years?
They were so curled up, I couldn’t believe anyone had been wearing them.
I thought this was a trick, a joke.

Gary and I searched all the shelves. No shoes for me.
The attendants acted like they didn’t understand, when we pointed to my feet and shrugged and hunted through the racks.

Did they want me to buy back my boots?
Did these fellows keep an assortment of old shoes to unload on tourists?
We couldn’t speak Turkish, but hey, come on, where are my shoes??

We told them to call the military police.
But they just looked at us with pale, nervous faces. (After the recent political coup, they were scared of the police.)

Soon we were yelling, commanding them to call the police.
We couldn’t understand Turkish.

Our English-speaking guide translated a little for us, but mostly he trembled.
He kept saying, “I didn’t tell you to leave your shoes there, did I? That man told you, didn’t he?”
His eyes darted around nervously, looking for an escape. He offered to return our 100 lira note to us.

We went back inside the mosque, looking for the shoes. Nowhere in sight.
Back to the doorway again.
The men gave me some black plastic slippers to wear against the cold cement.

The yelling steadily ramped up again.
We shouted that they were responsible.
They shouted that they were not.

One man said we should run through the adjoining park and look at people’s feet to find the stolen shoes.

The main man (possibly the caretaker) kept asking, “You want money? How much you want for the shoes? Do you want shoes or money?”

His words made us think this was a racket, but who knew?

“We want the shoes! Those same shoes! We bring the police here!”

Maybe shoe-stealing was a regular gig for them?
Every time I demanded the main man’s name and address, he just glanced around, a sheen of sweat on his face.

Gary prepared to fetch the tourist police, whose station was three blocks away.
I was afraid these men would split while he was gone. (As a woman I was not respected in 1980 Turkey.)

We kept demanding the truth.
They yelled who-knows-what at each other. (? Why didn’t you guard the shoes/ I needed the bathroom/ These were too expensive to steal/ I didn’t take them …?)

Gary picked up the shabby shoes which had been left in place of mine. The soles were worn down on the inside edges. Could these belong to a small pigeon-toed man? Should we pursue the thief into the park?

Were my shoes really gone, or did these men have them?
We couldn’t decide what to think.

We told them it would it cost $70 to replace my good boots (true).
We yelled that this main man in the brown coat was to be held responsible. He collected money to watch shoes, but neglected his duties.

We were getting nowhere.
Finally, we decided that I would fetch the tourist police, while Gary stayed to hold the men there.

Off I went, half-jogging down the street, trying to keep those silly plastic slippers on my feet.
A random man laughed and shouted at me.
I hurried to the tourist police station and up the creaky stairs.
I felt outraged and jittery.
They brought a policeman who spoke English.
I poured out my whole story to him.
The slippers on my feet were visible evidence.
They took me down to the office of the Chief of Police. They talked with him at length.
Then I was left there alone for a while, waiting for another cop.

Soon a big quiet cop and I strolled calmly down the street together toward the Blue Mosque. (No catcalls then.)

When we arrived, the cop spoke softly to the men, who responded with more arguing and shouting.
Too much yelling.

A gray-haired aristocratic-looking man offered to buy new shoes for me.
He had showed up while I was gone, and Gary assumed he was associated with the mosque.
“No way! We want my shoes!”

The loud crazy conflict escalated into silence.

I caved in and agreed to receive new shoes, although snow boots were an impossibility in this part of the world. My feet would no longer stay warm in the ice and snow. Those had been my only shoes for this long trip, and I loved them.

The cop, the gray-haired man, Gary, and I walked back to the tourist police station together.
I fumbled along with the slippery plastic sliders.

We all stood in the Chief’s office while they argued in Turkish.
Then we sat in another room, Gary and I by ourselves.
They were questioning the gray-haired man.
They asked us if we wanted to prosecute.
We said no, we didn’t want to delay our travels.
At this the police looked disappointed. We thanked them anyhow.

Was this a recurring tourist cheat, or did the police just want more action?
Were the shoes stolen by a knock-kneed person, or hidden by those mosque attendants?

The gray-haired man walked Gary and me to the shoe stores, where I acquired stiff hard-soled shoes, uncomfortable compared to stateside shoes.
The man paid for them and asked me to sign a statement to release him.
I gave him my black plastic slippers to return to the mosque.

The “little me” stayed mad.
The “bigger me” allowed that maybe somebody born to discomfort and lack would enjoy my beloved snow boots.

Gary and I wandered back to sit in the park, looking at the Blue Mosque and the absence of pigeon-toed men.

(For the record, we enjoyed many weeks of friendly Turkish hospitality after that first wacky day.)

How Does the Cosmos Surprise You and Care for You?

Early in the morning, facing the rising sun, I stood on our back porch, doing yoga moves and pondering the dream I’d just had. In this dream, a recently departed friend appeared. She gave me her gratitude for past favors, and said she was doing fine now on the “other side.”
Was that a real visit? Or was it my imagination?

On that thought, a hummingbird flew straight into our covered porch area, and stopped at twelve inches right in front of me. The hummingbird looked into my face for a moment. Just one full second it hovered, then zoomed away.

Well, there you go.
I smiled, inhaled the hint of coolness in the summer air.
Thank you, friend.
Thank you, hummingbird.

A message from the Beyond.

Oftentimes something in my head is confirmed in the outer world.
For instance, a sudden flash of light has beamed at me from another car, at the instant when I was giving myself a pep talk or understanding a new insight.
(Yes, I’m afraid it’s happened multiple times. Because it wants me to know that it is valid, and that I’m not crazy.)

My phone has dinged with perfect timing to accent a special thought that had just popped up.
Sometimes the shadow of a jet crosses my window and punctuates a passing idea.
I’ve learned to pay attention to this conversation.

For me these are great reminders that we are not alone, never alone, and that the Cosmos cares for each of us deeply.

What is your experience of this sort of thing?
Please share below.

(P.S. Hummingbirds never come into that porch – no foliage in there.)

Take Care using the Super Strong Little Net of Fear, says Dr. Peebles

Many a time I’ve caught something in my little net of fear and watched it unfold, to my detriment. Yes, I have caught a cold this way!
Have you ever noticed this happening in your life?

Dr. Peebles Speaks August 25 explores this idea and many other fascinating notions in a wonderful Q&A session that you won’t want to miss.

Questions are sent in from listeners (you can send one, too – sign up for Summer’s newsletter, and you will be in on the scoop next month).

Here is more about that net of fear, regarding EMF pollution and more:

Q: This person is asking, how can we protect ourselves from electromagnetic field overload?

Well you can, if you like, create a bit of a blue light around you, as a little bit of a filter. You don’t have to do much with that. You just imagine that you’re surrounded with a blue light which can act as a filter, to filter out some of the energies if it is bothering you, and that sort of thing.

Or you can take the alternative and say, “All right, if there are any frequencies that are coming my way right now, I allow for them to just simply pass through my body completely, without harming anything about my physicality. I’m just going to ignore them.”

The more you focus upon them, of course, the more you’re going to attract them.
If you’re worried about 5G and other things, you’re going to continue to attract it towards you.
“I’m so afraid of it. I don’t like it. I know I’m going to feel it. I can feel it. Oh, there it is, I’m feeling it really deeply now.”
And that’s because you’re focusing upon that.

Instead, change the frequency and say, “All right, I’m going to see what it feels like in my body right here and now. What does life feel like without 5G touching me whatsoever?”
Just imagine that. Close your eyes, relax, release, surrender. And imagine, no 5G, no microwaves, no radio waves, nothing coming through you, other than absolute 100% pure love, light, inspiration, and truth.

You are white light, my dear friends, you just forgot.
You don’t have to wrap yourself in it,  just remember who you are.
And then there is truly nothing to fear.

It’s when you worry about catching things, such as colds, that you catch them.
And you create a little way in which you can catch them in your little net of fear.
So, strive not to do that.

You have so many different frequencies coming at the planet Earth from other planets, from your sun, from so many sources.
If you could see it all with your eyes, it would – what is the terminology here? We love these words – “freak you out.”
It would freak you out, yeah?
God bless you indeed.
We had to search the library of Summer Bacon’s brain there, and we find, “freak you out.”
It would freak you out.
We like that, that’s funny.

                                   – Dr. Peebles through Summer Bacon

Listen to more.

This Q&A session includes:

  • Into the White Light: A beautiful rainbow meditation
  • Every color is born from the Black density of Light
  • Tears in the Timeline and Disappearances: What does it mean? How do we fix it?
  • Reincarnation: Can we be anything at any time?
  • The God Light: What is it and how do we find it?
  • Transforming the side effects of the Vaccine: Yes, you can!
  • Simultaneous Lives: Why do we choose this?
  • Homosexuality: The choice and journey of the Soul
  • The Law of Attraction: Yes, it’s REAL, and how to use it.
  • Freedom from Travel Restrictions: Sooner than you think!
  • Freeing the Mind: Psychedelics in the early Church – was it witchcraft?
  • The vaccine: Helping our children feel safe
  • Handling Old Age: How you dance the dance is up to you!
  • Electromagnetic Fields: Do you need protection?
  • Will our Earth be restored to her former health, or not?
  • LOVE: It’s always the answer
  • The Bond between Jesus and Mary Magdalene: the Truth and the Fiction.
  • and so much more!

Dr. Peebles tells us, yes, this is a tough time now, and Earth is indeed “one of the toughest schools in the Universe.”
However, he says, many of us have endured much more difficult past lives than we are now experiencing.
Food for thought.

Take heart, flip your view to broad perspective, and find your fun each day.

I had a blast of fun listening to the enthralling topics on this August 25 mp3 – and I think you will, too! Be sure to get your digital copy.

Don’t miss all the wonderful material available from Summer Bacon.

3 Quick Steps for Awesome Healing You Can Do in 2 Minutes 

Here’s a simple way to do energy healing for yourself and others, even at a distance, without any special training at all.
When I use this one, I feel tons of divine help flowing in.

Most of the pain and sickness that we feel, physically, mentally and emotionally, originates with stress.

Consciously or unconsciously we carry tons of stress:
burdens from our past and even from our ancestors –
future anxieties about our expectations and fears –
regrets about things that went wrong (in our estimation) –
judgments of ourselves and others –
conflicts we hold onto –
millions of ways we resist “what is” –
and tell ourselves that xyz is not okay.

If we can be okay with all of it, without resistance, everything will come into alignment, back into balance and health.

In essence, if we can truly forgive everything and everybody, including ourselves, then the natural flow of light and love fills us again.

Pain and trouble are released.

This easy DIY healing is about forgiveness.

Remember when we did the divine love experiment with a glass of water? Remember how the amount of natural healing energy coming from our hands paled in comparison to divine love energy?
Remember how sweet and awesome the divine love energy felt, radiating from that glass of water?

Well, this forgiveness healing method also brings in tons of divine assistance.

Although it is known by different names, we could call this method
Energy Clearing
Dropping baggage
Ancestral Clearing
– because it is all of the above.

Our connection with our Source is a very personal thing.
In this prayer, use the “higher source” word that makes you feel the most comfortable, be it Higher Self, or Cosmos, or Universe, or God. Speak whatever rings true for you.

I’m sure that sages and saints through history have used this method, but in recent times it was rediscovered by Howard Wills and expanded by John Newton.
You can go to their websites above for their forgiveness healing prayers.
John Newton and his students, including me, have received impressive results in healing with this method.

But also, I have simplified these clearing prayers to the following.
(You’ll change the pronouns to fit the situation.)

1) Begin with some calming breaths. Go into your heart.
Use a pink cord to connect your heart to the recipient (self or other other).

Healing Forgiveness Prayer Simplified

Divine Source of all love and light,
for me (or Jane/Joe) and all of my (their) ancestors, people, partners,
For all transgressions and trespasses on each other, all violations and violence, manipulations, untruths, assaults on each other, all abuse, all abandonment, neglect, lack-of-love and everything we (they) made it mean,

Please help us (them) to forgive each other, forgive ourselves (themselves) and all people forgive us (them) for all time and all space.
Please and Thank You
Please and Thank You
Please and Thank You

Divine Source of all,
Please pour your love and your light into every one of us (them)
For all time and all space,
Please and Thank You
Please and Thank You
Please and Thank You.

We love you Source, Thank You for loving us.
We love you Source, Thank You for loving us.
We love you Source, Thank You for loving us.

3) Breathe and let go.
Let go and let God.

If possible, you can be more specific about the problem. For instance, gallbladder trouble relates to “anger and resentment,” and you could include those words in the prayer, intending that specific release. (See root causes of illness.)

You can adjust the lines to your liking. The main thing is:

For me and all my ancestors, people, partners
For all kinds of abuse and neglect,
Please help us to forgive ourselves, forgive each other, and all others forgive us.
Please fill us with Your light and love, please and thank you.

This method, refined by John Newton, can be even more powerful when you do it with a practitioner who has been trained in more specific ways to use it. It can be done over the phone, and it can produce bigger benefits.

But there’s no reason to delay using this yourself, because the world needs your intentions of love and light.
Starting with love and light for yourself.

Many of us have recognized how important our higher power is in these times.
That divine connection will grow stronger and stronger in our lives, if we invite It and allow It to help us, as It would love to do.

Do you have experience with this healing method?
Let me know how it goes for you.

Big Changes Now and More Love Inside You, says Dr. Peebles

This world of yours is in chaos at times. It’s a lot of chaos.
You can relax, release, surrender, and let it go like a little balloon into the sky, God bless you indeed.
Up into the heavens where we will take that little balloon and tie it to a table, and enjoy it, and give it love.
And turn it into beautiful golden dust to rain down on human beings on the Earth.

Everything recycling itself so beautifully in terms of the energetics of this school called Planet Earth.

There’s lots of energy right now, coming to the surface and needing to be expressed. Lots of energy from human beings wanting to be heard. Things are loud.
Certainly, very loud at times, with human beings saying, “I want to be seen.  I want to be heard. This is who I am! I am different than you, and I don’t care. I like this difference that I have.”

                     – Dr. Peebles through Summer Bacon 

This week of August 18, Dr. Peebles gives a tremendous presentation, offering so much wisdom about our changing times and how to best deal with them,
how to ease your inner growth,
how to shift your heart into true happiness.


Topics on this wonderful August 18 mp3 include:

  • Feeling mixed up? “What’s wrong with me?” Dr. Peebles explains.
  • Ask, is this my emotion or is it from someone else?
  • More uprisings for freedom
  • Come to your SENSES about life
  • How darkness is the birthplace of light
  • How spirits get to know each other on the other side
  • Losing weight (by losing emotional weight)
  • The nanosecond nap you can take anywhere, anytime
  • How to shed old skins of the past
  • How to live as the spirit that you are (i.e. you are not your body) and feel lighter and more connected to God (with a healthier-than-ever body)
  • Your Soul speaks loud-and-clear these next 3 weeks – listen!
  • And MUCH more!

The next 3 weeks are especially important, as mentioned in this valuable excerpt from Dr. Peebles Speaks August 18.

(You say to yourself) it’s time for me to accept and acknowledge who I am 100%, that I am perfect as I am, that I don’t have to change, I don’t have to conform, I don’t have to be like everybody else in society to be the beautiful, wonderful, wise, witty, smart, gorgeous, amazing person that I am.

You’ll start to realize that you are embracing yourself more and more and more each and every day. You’re going to be asked to do this.

It’s just simply part of the energetic movement of the universe, saying, “You know something, guys, it’s enough. Stop hating yourselves. Stop hating each other. Realize that your movement now is into the greater understanding of love and the fifth dimension.”

And that is where you’re going to find greater and greater peace, and more self-expression, and more creativity than you’ve ever had before.
You’re going to find yourself coming to life as you never have before.

Your planet Earth, my friends, is in a state of flux as always, but again that’s just because human beings are upon it. And you find lots of ways in which to muddle things at times, God bless you indeed.

Find what is within you, your greatest strength.
And that greatest strength is love.

That greatest strength is being sensitive to your own sensitivity.
This is the time to do that.
Awaken to your own sensitivity.

Become sensitive to it.
Come to your senses about yourself.

Understand that your feelings – physical feelings, emotional feelings, spiritual feelings are going to be heightened and awakened during this period of time.
This will be happening over the course of the next 20 or so days.

You will start to really feel those nudges that say, “Hey, pay attention here, this is who you are. This is what you want. This is your soul speaking. Hello, I am here. I’m waving a flag, blowing kisses, saying, come forth, come and acknowledge me.”

You will start to realize that you get a stronger and stronger and stronger sense of self during this period of time, by acknowledging who you really are, and not being afraid of that.

You are going to find yourself accepting and embracing at long last, for so many of you, your true gifts and talents in this world.
And that means that perhaps your gift and your talent is simply to know how to slice an onion and do it beautifully. It could be the gift and the talent of simply being a good listener.

Easy Way to Loosen Up and Relax the Body – Magnesium

What if there was a safe and natural relaxer that your body craves, for greater health and balance?

There IS.

Magnesium benefits

  • muscle relaxation
  • relief of muscle cramps
  • better sleep and more energy on awakening
  • reduced stress
  • better mood and attitude
  • relief of depression
  • relief of anxiety
  • balanced adrenal glands
  • reduced PMS
  • balanced blood sugar (averting diabetes)
  • improved A1c levels in diabetes
  • better conversion of food into energy
  • relief of constipation
  • less inflammation in the body
  • lower blood pressure
  • repairs DNA and RNA
  • regulates the brain and nervous system
  • better brain function
  • reduce migraines (1000 mg gave quick relief in one study)
  • better exercise performance for all age groups

Every cell of our body needs Magnesium for hundreds of biochemical processes, to keep us healthy.

Unfortunately, the vast majority of us do not get enough Magnesium.
Studies show that up to 75% of us do not get our recommended intake (300 to 450 mg per day).

Experts say our low-magnesium modern foods are causing many cases of depression and mental illness.
In one study on older people, Magnesium 450 mg per day was as effective as a pharmaceutical antidepressant.

Low Magnesium levels are a precursor to diabetes (and many other problems – see below).

Foods high in Magnesium include
Green leafy vegetables,
spinach, Swiss chard, and kelp,
pumpkin seeds,
almonds and other nuts,
black beans and other legumes,
quinoa and unprocessed whole grains,
halibut and mackerel,
and many other veggies.

Vegetables, nuts and seeds have more magnesium when they are raw than when they are cooked.

Many people don’t have symptoms of low Magnesium – or they may feel
poor appetite, nausea,
muscle cramps, twitches,
leg cramps at night or anytime.

What depletes Magnesium?
soft drinks,
processed foods,
a lack of greens (because Magnesium is in the chlorophyll of leafy greens),
too much Calcium intake.

Too much Calcium causes your Magnesium to drop lower, because these two minerals always affect each other.
Modern food choices are Calcium-heavy.

High Calcium makes us more calcified as we age:
calcium-stiffened arteries,
hypertension (high blood pressure)
calcified coronary arteries (plaque build-up),
stiff heart valves (aortic stenosis or any of the valves),
congestive heart failure,
bone spurs,
kidney stones.

So . . . GET YOUR GREENS, okay?
Take good care of yourself.
Healthy foods!

Magnesium pills are absorbed in varying amounts and may cause loose stools, so it’s best to space them 2 or 3 times a day rather than all at once.
Topical Magnesium gel or spray applied to the skin absorbs better (but can be sticky).

An Epsom salts (Mag sulfate) bath is an excellent way to absorb Magnesium.

There are many varieties of Magnesium pills (Mag citrate, Mag glycinate, Mag malate, and more).
If you are in a low-Magnesium state, you may need to take more than the RDA of 300 to 450 mg per day, for a while.

We don’t prescribe here, but it’s worth looking into Magnesium, for better health.

What’s your experience with Magnesium? Do tell.

Keep the Light Lit and Feel the Love Supporting You, says Dr. Peebles

A bumpy road is coming, says Dr. Peebles, in his August 11th message.
In the next few years, extremely dark topics will be exposed in order to clean them up.

We are being transformed under pressure.
Hold your light and your love.
Don’t get sucked into the misery, nor the helplessness.

Remember the strengths and the gifts you have been given, and use them.
Your light has a ripple effect, a true impact, so keep it shining.

Don’t get sucked into the darkness.
This is a necessary time upon the planet Earth.
But there is still always, always, always, the light that is always there within you.
All it takes is for you to ignite it,
for you to acknowledge it,
for you to live it,
to speak it,
to be it.                               – Dr. Peebles through Summer Bacon

Dr. Peebles Speaks August 11 brought awesome profound insights at every turn.

Summer began the talk by giving great examples of how to decide to be happy, despite difficulties. How to take a fresh look at the sky, the birds, the trees, and all the bright spots in our lives.

Dr. Peebles’ vital presentation went deep into my heart and soul.
If you haven’t tuned in lately, this is one you’ll want to hear.

I could hardly choose what to transcribe, because the whole thing was so rich with life-changing words and encouragements.
Here’s the small part we bring to you:

There’s some tough stuff to go through.
We certainly don’t want to sugar coat anything for you.
Because there’s going to be tough stuff, but that’s where the real growth begins to happen. That’s where you really start to learn about who you are.

That is where God is brought back to the Earth, back to the planet, through the expression of human beings, human hearts, to one another.
Keeping that alive, keeping that light lit is so very important.

You are a part of that. You, my dear friends. You have that ability.
Take it seriously, who you are.
A child of God?
A steward of God’s love?
Is that not enough for you?
Can you not put your attention there in any situation, as difficult as it might be in the world?

That is where we want you to really put your attention now.
Because again the energy of the planet supports it.

And there is some other density of energy around you.
Close your eyes for a moment here. Take a nice deep breath.
And feel around you that there is an energy, rather dense.
But not scary, not sad, not negative. But very dense.

Feel that energy around you.
That energy is supporting you.
It’s holding you up.
That is the strength and the light of your guides, your angels, family and friends who know that this is a hard time upon the planet Earth.

That is the strength and the power of God.
Holding you up and saying, “Hey, don’t forget who you are.”

It feels thick, dense.
Dense with love.
How beautiful is that, my dear friends?
It’s supportive.
It is not tearing you down – it’s holding you up.

The other density, the energy that you would perceive as negative and such, that’s tearing you down. That’s heavy, but this is not.

This is supportive.
It’s like leaning on a tree when you’re tired.
It just holds you.
It just loves you.
How beautiful that is.

                             – Dr. Peebles through Summer Bacon

Listen to more – He goes on to describe how to use this dense, loving energy in practical ways.

As Summer says,
This week’s message from Dr. Peebles is all about how the energy of the planet is challenging, honoring, and supporting us through the bumpy times to come; transforming us under pressure.

  • How to become aware of and work with the reactivity within self and others
  • Engage with self, and awaken to God!
  • What to do when you don’t know what to do
  • What God has activated within you; how to find those gifts, and exciting new discoveries of self
  • What grief, guilt, shame teaches us
  • Fantastic creative ways to respond to the world
  • More about vaccines, vaccine passports; massive uprisings on the planet
  • Density and darkness that will be exposed on the earth, and how not to fall into despair
  • How what you say can actually affect the future of the planet
  • The reason for physical and spiritual storms
  • The difference between the density of negativity and the density of love (fascinating)
  • and so much more!

If you are feeling discouraged in any way (and who isn’t?),
rediscover your courage now, with Dr. Peebles Speaks August 11.

Let your love shine, in any way you like.

Deep thanks to Summer Bacon for being such a clear trans-medium and providing these vibrant messages for humanity.

Perfection is Pure-Fiction – Set Yourself Free from the Cage

My name is Diane, and my Habit is Perfectionism.
About 1 in 9 of us have this core habit – the other 8 get to have something else, on the wheel of the Enneagram personality types

My mind nags: “Gotta fix this, inside me or outside. Things are not good enough.”
But things are good enough!
It’s just a scratchy old recording, telling me otherwise.
It’s not true.
Why do I listen to it?

I deeply appreciate everybody and everything in my life – except when I don’t.
I lose sight.

I slip-slide down the ungrateful path, the critical path. 
My Inner Critic is tenacious and persistent, whispering those old Nothings, criticizing and tearing apart and trying to improve everything I see.

The Critic lures me, unawares, into a cage.
It makes me think I’m in charge of the world and I must get perfection.
It paints a beautiful perfect picture, unreal, inside that cage.
And in I go!
Entranced by the glory of perfection, that pure fiction.  

I take the bait. I’m hooked.

As I hook into my Habit-of-Mind, my Critic ever so softly shuts the cage, trapping me inside.

I barely notice, because this is me, my usual place, my fallback, my power and control, my ego at work.

Getting it perfect is my job, after all.
I’m engaging the fake perfect picture.
Gotta get it right.
Be the best.
If it’s worth doing, it’s worth doing right.

Righteous. Self-righteous. Virtuous.
“Lemme tell you a thing or two” (says my blind arrogance).

Darkness spreads inside my cage, but I press on.
I pour on my gleam.
I can do this, I’m a saint.
Working the situation.
Pushing the river.

I still can’t see how fake the picture is, how it’s only a layer of paint, an illusion.
(By now I’m practically licking that paint, in admiration.)

. . . eventually my belly begins to feel this place is no fun.
It’s isolated.
It’s dry and empty, and I can’t find a way out.

I mistakenly slipped into solitary confinement – because, you see, I’m so damn good, I’m aloof from the rest of ya’s! (Tsk, yeah, arrogant.)

Yet I still can’t get this thing perfect enough.
Can we say Anger?

Anger helps me discover I’m trapped.
Caught in my Habit-of-Mind Cage.

Okay. At least now I know where I am.
I fell for that perfect picture again.
The paint tastes bad in my mouth.

I grope for my tools.

Feebly I try gratitude.
Forget it, I’d rather scream and whine.

But . . .
Heck, it could be worse . . .
I’m glad I have air in my lungs, I guess . . .
I’m thankful for . . .
This thing I’m trying to correct might be okay as it is . . .
Maybe it’s good enough . . .

Slowly, bits of appreciation open my constricted heart.
A few millimeters, widening.

Maybe I can calm down, try a little serenity (my main tool).
Surrender to Serenity.
Breathe. Let go.

Breathing deeper.
Releasing the perpetual bone I tend to chew.

Opening to gratitude.

Reconnecting, coming out of isolation. 

Unlocking my Cage.

Slipping out into freedom.

Ahhhh – relief.

It always feels like a miracle, because it IS.


So. It’s none of my business, but —
What throws you into your cage?

  • Do you want to avoid conflict at all costs, and go submissive in order to keep the peace? (Type 9, Peacemaker)
  • Afraid of boredom, so you’re running super-busy? (Type 7, Adventurer)
  • Do you have a constant urge to give to others, but they don’t reciprocate, and you feel burned-out? (Type 2, Giver)
  • Does everything look threatening and untrustworthy? Tons of things could go wrong, and you have to analyze them all. (Type 6, Loyal Skeptic)
  • What if deep inside, you feel competitive, you cannot fail, so you overwork yourself? (Type 3, Performer)
  • Maybe others impinge on you too much. You want to withdraw, keep your distance, so you’ll have enough time, space, resources. (Type 5, Observer)
  • Perhaps your Achilles’ heel is that, wherever you look, people/things seem lacking or disappointing. Something is always missing. (Type 4, Romantic)
  • Possibly you feel compelled to dominate and take charge of situations; you cannot rely on anybody but yourself. (Type 8, Protector)

When you can see your own Habit-of-Mind, you take a big step to true freedom and happiness.

As you explore Enneagram personalities, you begin to understand your family, your friends, (your enemies?), your customers, your coworkers, your boss, on a much deeper level.

Enneagram has lightened up my life immensely.
I highly recommend giving it a look.
Check out a quick casual personality quiz  on joystream.net (under “Freebies/Downloads”).
