Enjoy Free Natural Simple Stress Healing with Your Hands

Try this free self-healing, a quick easy way to relax and nurture yourself despite the chaos.

As you know, rivers of light-energy-information, known as meridians, flow through us.(Meridian points are used in acupuncture and other modalities.)
Each meridian corresponds to an organ, and also relates to particular emotions.
Some meridian beginning and ending points are located in our fingers.

Since ancient times, the Japanese have used an easy way to balance emotions and improve health. Jin Shin Jyutsu is the long name for this simple self-healing method.

Wrap the fingers of one hand around your other thumb.
Relax and breathe deeply, gently for a couple minutes.

You may feel a pulsing when the energy comes into alignment.
By holding your thumb, you reduce worry and anxiety.
You also improve the health of your stomach and spleen.

Holding your index finger, you diminish fear.
Keep breathing and relaxing.
(See the image below, regarding each finger’s meridians / organs.)

The middle finger – you guessed it – expresses anger.
Soothe it away by holding that finger and breathing deeply.

The ring finger reflects sadness.
Cushion it in your hand and breathe.

The little finger is about trying too much, efforting too hard, possibly feeling unworthy or judgmental.
When you wrap your hand around this finger and breathe, you literally nurture your heart.

You can also press and hold the center of your palm, which increases calmness and harmony.

Generally this practice begins with the thumb and goes in order to the rest of the fingers, as we have done. Then treat the other hand.
(But it should work fine, in any order.)

You can also treat one finger in the moment.

When you’re feeling anxious, grab your thumb and breathe.

Co-worker aggravating you?
Don’t give them “the finger,” but grab your middle finger and hold it.
Breathe. Then hold your other middle finger, just for safety’s sake.

It’s not vital to spend a full 2 minutes on each finger.
Even a little will help, a few easy breaths.

When you have plenty of time, a session of 10 minutes can really boost your well-being.
You will feel mellow, with more energy.

Easy shmeesy, right?

Tell us, how did you feel with this quick self-treatment?

(Thanks to my friend, Robin Farina, for turning me onto this easy form of self-healing.)

Why should I Care about my Powerful Thought Forms?

Your thoughts rule.
But you can rule your thoughts.

10 loose definitions of a thought form

  • a fundamental belief or opinion belonging to a person or a culture
  • an energy form composed of both thought and emotion
  • a vague or clearly-defined intention, belief, or feeling
  • mental imagery that fulfills a function (for an artist, novelist, anybody)
  • an obsession or fixation
  • magnetically attracts similar thought forms (tones, emotions)
  • arises spontaneously from a person’s thoughts/emotions all day
  • used intentionally or unconsciously by a person or a collective
  • runs your behavior when you are unaware
  • can and should be used proactively to enhance life
  • (and probably more descriptions too)

Let’s look at a few of these aspects here.

Surely, you’ve had a pain and noticed, the more you focus on it, the bigger it gets?
Maybe it’s a sore spot, a sprain, or a hang nail. You keep thinking about it.

Your thought-emotion, your focused attention, enlarges whatever it focuses upon.
Energy follows attention, and
Attention enlivens its object.

For instance: 10pm “my throat’s a little dry tonight” … 11pm “it feels scratchy” …  2am “oh no, it’s worse, something’s wrong!”
This “worry thought form” can bring on a sore throat.

Thoughts hooked to emotions become thought forms.
Thought forms are real and potent. They carry a punch.

Are they invisible?
Yes and no.
We tend to feel emotional vibes, not see them.
But some clairvoyants can see these thought-emotion forms in the air (in the aura).

More than a century ago, Annie Besant showed us pictures of personal thought forms (in Thought-Forms by Besant and Leadbeater).
Clairvoyants saw and drew these colorful shapes emitted by people in various states of mind and emotion.

The image that fascinates me the most is “sudden fright,” shown here as a spray of needles (shooting toward the right – and the secondary angry red crescents arose as the person got angry about the scare).
sudden fright 1901 drawing BesantThis image resonates with my felt experience.
For me, sudden fright occurs when a vehicle swerves into my lane and nearly hits me.
I feel a ton of needles zapping out from my face, torso, and arms.

Does this needle-sensation happen to you, in a scare?
I would be so curious to hear from you.

According to Besant and Leadbeater, we constantly emit these astral cloud puffs of emotional thought forms.

Meanwhile, other people’s thought forms drift into our field and affect us.
We attract more of them when we dwell on a particular emotion.
That’s the misery-loves-company experience. Misery attracts more misery.

Some sources say that up to 98% of our feelings do not belong to us, but waft in from others, or from the collective.

Collective attitudes/beliefs/emotions impact us tremendously, if we let them.
I feel these collective thought forms.
Do you?

I caught the virus early, when our regional panic first exploded.
That wave of fright flooded the land.
When I read detailed medical accounts from NYC, my fear intensified.
I felt scared for friends and family. (Thought I would be fine.)

But I fully felt the big scare, and my eyes heated up in an odd way.
A fever arose the next day.

As my ‘rona journey rolled on, my sense of fear ran high, amplified by the world.
But I could release fear, meditate it away, or tap it down using Energy Psychology (EFT meridian tapping).
I would go to bed feeling fine and stable.
Then at 2 a.m. the collective distress would hit me.
My fear surged again, hijacked by the collective terror.

We’ve all been affected by global fear, I think.

Stirring up fear is totally counterproductive.
We could blame it on the media (and turn it off) – however –

Each of us contributes to collective thought forms.

That’s why it is vital now to move our attention away from fear and anxiety.

Take control and focus upon what you love.
Grow more of that.
Every day.

It’s TIME to lighten up, in order to manifest a lighter and smoother world.

We need to tune our inner radio dial to the gratitude station.

You owe it to yourself and to all of us, to relax,
count your blessings,
love yourself,
bask outdoors in the beauty of the Earth,
phone your friends,
have some fun whenever you can.

The first step in shaping your personal reality is knowing that thought forms are real and powerful.

How have you noticed thought forms playing out in your life?

How to Repair Your Lungs after COVID – Visceral Manipulation

After my Coronavirus Journey, I felt deliciously strong, energetic, able to exercise and enjoy life.
I spent all summer feeling grateful to be “normal” again.

When my amazing advanced body work therapist, Valerie Revering, reopened her doors after quarantine season, I was eager to see her.
To my surprise, she said my lungs had the consistency of a hard rubber ball.
She also described them as rubber cement.
(Y’all know that lungs are supposed to be extremely soft and squishy, loose and airy?)

If you think it’s wild that Val could feel my lungs, then you may not have heard of Visceral Manipulation.

Back in the 1970s and 80s, Dr. Jean-Pierre Barral D.O. explored how visceral adjustments (of the organs and soft tissues) improve musculoskeletal alignment and good health overall.
He founded the method of Visceral Manipulation.
Since the 1980s Barral has taught Visceral Manipulation worldwide, for the benefit of millions of people.

Why massage your viscera?
Through time, injury, inflammation, lack of motion, our connective tissue (fascia) gets stiff and tight in various locations, which pulls organs and structures out of alignment.

(In my case the virus stiffened my lung tissue, unbeknownst to me. During the illness I had pain down the left bronchus, but I never had a cough. My mild shortness of breath was long-gone, and I felt fine. Some people have more severe lung impairment post-COVID.)

Tight connective tissue can tug, cramp, and impair any of the structures and systems of the body – bones, muscles, nerves, blood vessels, organs.
All parts of your body are designed to move, slide and stretch constantly.

For instance, your breath moves not only your lungs but your kidneys and other organs.
A restriction anywhere changes the normal healthy patterns, forces other parts to compensate abnormally, and can cause pain and dysfunction.

A Visceral Manipulation Therapist (who is usually skilled in massage and/or other modalities) feels for the decreased motion of the organs and restrictive patterns throughout the body.
The therapist applies gentle pressure, stretching and mobilizing the soft tissues to release restrictions and restore good motion and alignment.

The tissues, organs, and structures feel much happier when they can move freely, in alignment (such is my experience).
Pain dissolves. Better health is restored.

As you may imagine, Visceral Manipulation benefits all kinds of old injuries, whiplash, sports injuries, back pain, migraines, digestive troubles, pelvic pain, fibroids, adhesions and more.
Plus, 80% of musculoskeletal problems involve visceral restrictions. When these are released, lasting musculoskeletal alignment is better achieved.

Let’s go back to my lungs – hard rubber ball? Rubber cement?
I didn’t like those words, but when she pressed on my ribcage, it was oddly immobile.

I trust Val. She and her group of therapists are remarkably skilled.

First, she loosened up my lungs from sticking to the walls of my ribs.
We saw, after the session, I naturally took larger breaths with bigger lung capacity.
(I think my oximeter reading improved too – more oxygen in the bloodstream.)

Usually Visceral Manipulation requires 3 to 5 treatments to get the full benefit for the area of focus.

In my second session, she said my lungs didn’t feel quite as stiff as rubber cement anymore.
She pulled the lobes of the lungs apart, and said it felt like Velcro separating.
Cool, I wished I could feel that.

Her hands went directly to surprisingly sore spots and applied pressure that felt super good to me.
(I didn’t know about those sore spots until she found them so easily. “Hurts so good,” I describe that pressure. My body likes the adjustment.)

After this treatment, my lung capacity measurably increased by 250 cc on the incentive spirometer DSspirometer. (See pic. Exercising the lungs by inhaling on a spirometer helps your recovery.)

My third visit was about a month after the first.
Now the lungs felt like bubble wrap, she said (a lot closer to normal).
This third treatment might be enough to finish softening them up.
Again her hands found all the good spots and stretched them into sweet relief.

At home my spirometer showed even a bit more lung capacity.
Feeling better than ever, now!

If you want to loosen up your lungs post Covid-19, check these few contraindications:

  • You need to have strong bone density for this rib work (not severe osteoporosis).
  • If you had Covid-19 blood clots (or any clots), don’t get Visceral Manipulation.
  • If you have any stents, this method cannot be used on you.

Val and her team at And Breathe wellness center in Phoenix have helped people increase their oxygen levels from 91% to 97%, sometimes in one session.  (Try them at 602 368-9880)

Find Visceral Manipulation practitioners near you.
(p.s. I am listed there, but I work only with the digestive system so far – Level 1 course.)

Surprising After Life Scene of Karma and Heart

Flash fiction …

Her Glowing Life Review

When Davann suddenly passed from the Earth, she felt
dismay that the crash ruined her shoes,
relief to escape before old age wrinkled her, and
eagerness for her reward in heaven.

She anticipated a glowing life review. After all, she always helped her friends, followed the rules (except for speeding), and donated to charities.

She stood before a council of wispy angelic beings whose love saturated her.
One said, “Sit down and relax, dear Davann.”
A chair magically appeared.

Images danced through the air – her baby years – such a cute toddler – sweet moments with Mommy and Daddy – moving on to school years, her circle of friends.
Emotional ups and downs made her laugh and cry, even now.
Many mistakes, loves and hates, but she learned from them. Falling in love, marriage, divorce. It was all so human – working her job, struggling with conflicts, mean bosses, aggravating neighbors, fun friends.

“You did all right, yes?” said the angelic leader.

“All right? I thought I did well.” Would the council members give her a score, like in the Olympics? “When I was good, I was very good,” she added.

“Yes, although… as it is for modern humans, one major complaint is registered against you.”

“Yeah,” said a knee-high gnome who had suddenly appeared.

“Welcome, Galen,” the leader said softly.

Davann blinked at this lawn ornament. “You’re not real. You must be a figment -”

“I’m as real as you are! We live in Mother Earth, and She ain’t happy about you!” His stubby finger stabbed the air. “Watch!”

Young Davann threw out garbage. Juice packets with sippy straws. Cracker snack packs with extruded cheese. Messy globs of paper towels. Plastic toys, pudding packs.

Grown up, she tossed Styrofoam egg cartons and take-out bowls, disposable cups, plastic spoons, heavy packaging on fancy foods. Acres of bubble wrap from online purchases.

She produced forty-plus years of rubbish.
Her trash flowed into landfills and oceans, into floating islands of plastics and scum.

The next scene went into a cave, down through dark tunnels, to a room where several gnomes sat around a table.

“That’s me family,” said Galen.

The gnomes gazed disgustedly at their ceiling, where bits of trash emerged and fell. One little guy on a ladder pulled down an old milk carton. Dirt clods fell on his face. He applied a drippy mud patch to the cavity.

“I recycled as much as I could,” said Davann.

Galen’s face stiffened. “Humans throw it out, they think it disappears.”

Passing through more tunnels, the view opened to a murky wet place. Miniature people, eight inches tall, moved about ministering to those lying upon tiny blankets.

“These fae folk live in the marshlands,” Galen explained. “Trash mold is killing them off.”

“Oh, gosh.”

“You’ve no idea how many societies live underground, and how they suffer.”

The next dim place revealed large hairy beings. They moved like humans. Some shoveled mounds of trash, turning it over. Others pushed wheelbarrows of garbage to the piles. On the far edge, two gnomes unloaded their backpacks of debris.

“Thank God for the Yetis,” said Galen.

“Yetis,” Davann said flatly. They looked scary. And mythological.

As if reading her mind, the council leader said, “The Yetis possess more kindness and patience than most humans. Look closer – with your heart.”

In a deeper hollow of trash, a trio of Yetis sat with their backs against each other. Their hands and hearts glowed green toward the rubbish. Their furry faces gazed upon each piece, whereupon it melted into black mush.

“They convert it back into carbon,” Galen murmured. “They’re amazing.”

“Yes. We need more of them to handle the workload,” said the leader.

Silence descended. The images dissolved.

Everybody looked at her.

“Well,” she said. “I hope the Yetis thrive.”

“As do we,” a council member said pointedly.

The quiet made her uncomfortable. “What do they eat down there?”

“Roots.” Galen stared at her. “Vegetables, legumes. Phosphorescent light grows their gardens.”

“Cool. Do they hunt animals?”

Galen sniffed. “No flesh eating in the interior.”

He stepped back, deferring to the council.

The leader said, “Yes, we need more Yetis.”

Davann nodded. “I hope they have lots of babies.”

“You could be one of them.”

“Me?” she squeaked. They were so hairy, she couldn’t tell females from males.

“Yes.”

“W- wouldn’t that take me backwards in my progress?” They were barefoot. She couldn’t imagine what they might step in.

“A Yeti life, my dear, will develop your heart.”

“Well now – well now – I could go back to California instead, and set up a foundation to reduce garbage. You could give me philanthropic friends? We could do amazing things.” She recalled the elegant swimming pool and gardens at a hoity-toity function she had once attended.

“You could do an amazing thing for your heart and your compassion, when you live as a Yeti.”

“Eww.” Whoops, wrong word. She pushed her palm over her mouth. Oh heck, they could see right through her anyhow.

“We see this is a shock for you, compared to your recent life and its trappings. Yet it will feel refreshing. This is exactly the remedy you need.”

“But I – look, that’s not all my garbage. I’m just one person. Could I just clean up my own?”

“That misses the point of heart development. Besides, it’s impossible now to separate your stuff from others’ stuff.”

“I – might – recognize it?” She bit her lip. “If you gave me that power?” she mumbled.

“My dear, you’ve never been a Yeti before. You might enjoy it. This is our recommendation.”

“Hmm,” she whimpered.

“You aren’t required to do anything at all. It’s always your choice. Just relax in Paradise for as long as you wish, until you want a change of some kind. Then – who knows?”

Stop Tug-of-War, Time to Let Go of the Rope

One way to make yourself feel worse is to push against what you hate.
We’ve been doing this for millennia.
We divide our personal world into what we like and don’t like,
what we love and what we hate,
what we call “good” and what we call “bad.”

(Broad Perspective doesn’t label good or bad. Everything simply is what it is.)

We paint the bright side brighter and the dark side darker.

Then we push hard against the dark side – and our pushing makes the “dark” stronger than it would be otherwise.
We feed it more energy, by pushing against it.

We think whatever we hate must be stopped and extinguished.

Your friends agree with you that a particular something, somebody, or group is distasteful, wrong, “bad.”
But commiserating about it feeds the “us and them” divide, which never did us any good.
It has only given us more heat, more battles, more misery overall.

We can exhaust ourselves with that tug-of-war, or
we can let go of the rope.

How would it feel to step back and observe?
Let go and take a breath.

This is a holographic world.
Everything in the universe is within you.
Everything on the planet is within you.
All political parties are within you.
All personalities are within you.

Like Walt Whitman, you are large, you contain multitudes (in his poem, “Song of Myself”). 

The truth is, “we” are “them” and “they” are “us.”
We have been wearing blinders for eons, not recognizing each other as part of ourselves.

I’m not saying it’s easy to tolerate aggravating people.
I know how hard that is.

But still there is a neutral place to stand.
It’s a place of breathing, noticing, listening, accepting.
It’s a place of reminding yourself that whatever the heck they’re doing, they are following what seems true to them.

Your own personal truth is still vital.
Voice it loud and clear.
Do what seems good to you.
Take the action you need, while respecting others.

At the same time, we are learning patience.
Let’s take a breath.
Quit burning up the planet with our anger.
Relax that longstanding tug-of-war.

See who we really are.

It feels so freaking good to let go of that rope.

And breathe.

I feel better.
How about you?

See the Amazing Quantum World thanks to David Bohm

Imagine the space around you is full, not empty.
The sky, the space, the air in front of your face,
the astronomical field,
is not an empty vacuum
but a plenum
filled with information and energies.

Everything is totally interconnected.
All the world is a hologram.
The whole universe and every part, including you, is totally connected to every other part.

Take a look at this film I so enjoyed, all about David Bohm and his discoveries.
Bohm took his own unique remarkable path into Quantum Physics,
and he discovered the holographic nature of the universe,
the holographic nature of everything you see, hear, touch, taste, and feel.

Take a look at the undivided wholeness of all things, including yourself.

Free film through September 30th (film length 1:11)

How to Make Your Electric Body Strong, Brilliant, Grounded

Who knew your body is electric?
The membrane of every cell produces electrical energy,
using the sodium-potassium pump (like a hydroelectric power plant) to generate ATP and GTP, which provide energy for you.

Mild electric currents stream throughout your body, not only through your nervous system and muscles, but to your organs and tissues.

(Within every atom, protons have a positive charge, electrons have a negative charge, and the flow of electrons between atoms and ions is electricity.)

Inflammation
At the microscopic core of chronic diseases, we find inflammation due to “free radicals.”
A free radical has an unpaired electron, which makes it unstable.
In its effort to grab more electrons, it damages proteins and cells.
This process produces oxidative stress and leads to chronic inflammation.

This is a huge topic, but basically the longer we live, we hold more free radicals, oxidation, inflammation, pain, disease, aging and wrinkles.
(Poor nutrition, preservatives, sugar and refined carbohydrates give us even more free radicals and inflammation.)

For the past two decades medical scientists tell us that inflammation is the real killer, the root cause of heart disease, cancer, diabetes, arthritis, pulmonary disease, neurological disease, Alzheimer’s, autoimmune conditions, and more.

“Supplements to reduce inflammation” gets 65.5 million hits on my browser.

If only we had more free electrons to match up with those free radicals, we could avert damage, inflammation, and pain . . .

Guess what?
The surface of the Earth is filled with free electrons which pass through your skin and restore your body to better health.
That is, if you go barefoot on the ground, sit on the lawn, and/or try sleeping on an Earthing mat, you’ll feel the benefits of Earthing.

 “Earthing works fast. Anyone can try it. You don’t even have to believe it works. If you don’t feel well or have pain, for whatever reason, just put your bare feet on the ground – on grass, wet sand, gravel, or plain dirt − for a half-hour. See what happens. There is nothing that comes close to Earthing for quick relief.”  – James Oschman, Ph.D., internationally-renowned expert on energy medicine

The Earth’s free electrons neutralize free radical molecules, which stops their destruction of healthy tissues, reduces inflammation, and relieves pain.

Medical Thermal Imaging reveals decreased inflammation after a person gets grounded to the Earth. (See this clip of The Earthing Movie at minute 27-28.)

Studies published in 2004 (using subjects who sleep on a grounding mat) demonstrated that Earthing stabilizes the stress hormone Cortisol down to normal healthy levels.
Earthing calms the nervous system and improves overall mood.

Earthing tends to improve

  • inflammation and diseases of inflammation
  • chronic pain, or almost any pain
  • better circulation, blood flow, healthy thinning of the blood
  • oxygenation
  • blood pressure
  • daily energy and stamina
  • immune system strength – fewer colds or viruses
  • thyroid function
  • adrenal health
  • blood sugar levels
  • hormonal levels, PMS, hot flashes
  • quicker healing of injuries (proven during Tour de France 2003-2005)
  • deeper sleep, less fatigue
  • easy release of stress
  • better digestion
  • quick recovery from jet lag
  • transmuting and releasing detrimental EMFs

We have tons of Earthing case studies from people who improve their blood pressure, feel and look more vibrant, accelerate healing of injuries, relieve seasonal allergies, arthritis, asthma, eczema, fibromyalgia, multiple sclerosis, and more.

People who consistently sleep on an Earthing mat may need to reduce their medications. Typically they need lower doses of

  • blood thinners (anticoagulants)
  • anti-inflammatories (NSAIDs)
  • diabetic pills
  • thyroid-boosting medications
  • blood pressure pills
  • pain pills

Every person’s situation is unique.
People have varying amounts of improvement with Earthing.

Many find Earthing is anti-aging, because it removes inflammation and heals the immune system.
People tend to feel more vital, energetic and restored in many ways.

How to Ground / How to use Earthing

  • barefoot outdoors
  • Earthing mat indoors connected to ground
  • Earthing patch for specific pain

Go barefoot on the Earth (sit, stand, walk, lie down if you like) for a half hour or more each day.
Electrons flow into your body. The soles of your feet are especially receptive.
(Experiment – rate your pain before and after 30 minutes of Earth-contact.)

Good conduction happens on soil, grass, sand, gravel, rock, and concrete.
Moist surfaces are extra conductive.
You can also wade in any natural body of water.
(Grounding/Earthing does not work on wood, rubber, plastic, vinyl, asphalt, or sealed/painted tile/concrete – all are poor conductors.)

Sleep on an Earthing mat connected to the ground through an electrical outlet (via the rounded receptor at the bottom of the type B power outlet common in the US, Canada, Japan, Mexico, Central America and part of South America).
Before using the outlet’s ground port, check its wiring safety with the plug-in tester that comes with every Earthing mat.
Another option is to connect the Earthing mat to a grounding rod in the soil outdoors (and feed the wire through a window).

(Use a smaller Earthing mat under your bare feet when sitting, if you like.)

Apply a grounded Earthing patch to a painful spot, such as an arthritic wrist. (The patch is wired and connected to ground.)

My Earthing mat experience so far (first 6 weeks):
In the beginning, I felt lots of tingling sparky energy from the mat, so it took time to overlook that and drift to sleep. But I did sink into good solid sleep from the first night onwards.
(Most people say deep sleep is the earliest benefit.)

When I would waken (after 9 hours of restoration), I would feel lethargic and cloudy, like a detoxification. This makes sense, as free radicals cleared out of my system.

The Earthing Institute mentions these early side effects, and says it may take up to 2 weeks for the tingling sensation and the detox effect to finish.
In my case, it took 4 weeks to normalize.

After the initial detox, I now feel clear and energetic in the morning and throughout the day.
My body now takes 8 hours of deep sleep instead of 9.
My digestion improved. (I quit burping after meals. Found out science says gut bacteria are electric too.)

What about a few critics who claim the Earthing mat brings more EMFs (man-made electromagnetic fields) into your body?
This is refuted by early experiments done by the Earthing mat inventor, Clint Ober, and also in a 2005 published study by electrical engineer Roger Applewhite.

Clint Ober examined the electrical field-induced EMF voltage created on subjects’ bodies in their own beds, before and after grounding on a mat.
Ober found an average of 3.27 volts EMF on the human body prior to grounding, which came down to an average of 0.007 volts on the body when grounded on a mat.

Applewhite’s 2005 study using wired Earthing devices confirmed that

  • when a person is grounded, electrons pass both ways to maintain the human body at the same electric potential as the Earth, and
  • grounding drastically reduces EMF energies on the body.

I think I’ll keep sleeping on this mat . . .

Boost Your Brain, Get Clarity, Sturdy Mind, Reliable Memory

To clear up your brain, first consider your prescription drugs, because many of them carry the side effects of confusion and memory loss.

Such was the case for my loved one who was taking Lisinopril for BP and Simvastatin for cholesterol. (Both listed the above side effects.) Now that he’s been off those for 3 months, and doing fine without them, he is much more mentally sharp – hooray!

4 ways to boost your brain:

1. Drink more Water
Even mild dehydration can cause noticeable confusion or poor thinking skills.
The brain is 85% water and it craves water.
(Drink 1.5 gallons a day – about half your weight in ounces – 80 oz for 160 lb. person)

Older adults are at higher risk for dehydration.
Unfortunately, the body’s hydration mechanisms decline as we age.
Older adults have reduced thirst signals – they don’t feel thirsty. They need to drink lots of water on purpose. (You might consider using high-mineral Celtic sea salt to hydrate better.)
If you’re feeling foggy, drink some water or fluids, and see if you perk up or improve noticeably. (This often happens within 5-10 minutes.)
If drinking water does help your mental clarity, that suggests you were mildly dehydrated.


2. B vitamins, B-complex – 1 each day
B-complex vitamins containing all the B’s – have shown effectiveness in helping memory and brain fitness. B vitamins also prevent infections and enhance nerve function, energy levels, good eyesight, and good cellular health overall.

Vitamin B12 helps the brain and the whole body.
Most of us need more B12 as we age.

 

3. Ginkgo Biloba
According to WebMD, Ginkgo Biloba may be the best possible supplement. (They listed a ton of possible supplements, most of which did not pan out.)
Ginkgo Biloba helps with blood flow to the brain, and is commonly used in Europe to enhance memory.
WebMD says more research is needed to prove it, but at the moment they think this dose may help: Ginkgo Biloba 120 mg twice a day

And let’s remember that blood flow anyhow depends on water and exercise – go for both!

 

4. Coconut Oil
In the latest studies, memory loss is seen as a form of “diabetes of the brain” – meaning that nutrients are not flowing well into brain tissues.
Many have had good success using
Coconut Oil 2 Tablespoons each day to feed the brain and improve memory skills.

Other research says to use liberal amounts of Olive oil in your dishes.

 

More Options
Do your own investigation on these, but it may be helpful to:

– Get into an anti-inflammatory diet and lifestyle.  

– Use the mind-protecting nutrients in green tea, blueberries and curcumin.

– The aging brain may need CoQ10, lipoic acid, trace elements, Vitamin C, D, E (but check appropriate amounts, ask for your blood levels, etc.)

– A couple products that came highly recommended are “Methylation Protect” and “EB-C3 Delayed Release” – but again, ask your doctor and do your research.

Ultimate Free Gift of Love, Inspiration MP3 Dr. Peebles

Summer Bacon has been channeling Dr. James Martin Peebles since 1994, and doing an awesome job at this strenuous work.
Now, after 26 amazing years, she announces her retirement.

I’m filled with gratitude for her years of service and for all the beautiful teachings from Dr. James Martin Peebles, which have inspired me deeply.
(Addendum as of October 15, 2020Summer has now returned to her trans-medium work, channeling Dr. Peebles. I’m overjoyed to hear it!)

I’ve been listening for 17 years.
His words have never failed to open up more love, light, and higher perspectives for me.

Here’s an excerpt of his message spoken and transcribed through Summer Bacon, on August 26th 2020.

You are beautiful spirits, students of the Divine!

Live your life from the heart. Don’t be afraid to be who you are; give it to the world, and let the world respond with the honest echo. Maybe they like you, maybe they don’t, and it doesn’t really matter either way.

You’re all just learning and dancing together on the school called Planet Earth; a beautiful place, my dear friends, that is coming alive at long last, awakening to things that were hidden before, now being exposed, coming to the surface to be cleaned and cleared away.

Remember this, my dear friends, you are sensitive people. You are truly sensitive in so very many ways. You have senses that are more highly attuned than you are even aware of.

If you come to understand this, you will start to be able to eliminate those thought forms that might come into your consciousness that are less than kind, less than nice, that are trying to keep you in a place of fear or anger.

You will awaken to those thought forms and you will say, “I’m going to discard that, because I choose love. I would rather look through the eyes of Christ.”
Close your eyes for a moment here, and imagine that you are doing so, looking at the world through the eyes of Christ, where all of the illusions of separation disappear, and all you see is the wonder of being human. 

And finally – Dr. Peebles gave his classic sign-off:

God bless you indeed, you are a beautiful spirit, we love you so very much!
Go your way in peace, love and harmony, for life is indeed a joy, and all you have to do as you enjoy the journey to your own heart, and certainly to your own enlightenment, is simply lighten up just a little bit more! 


Take those words into your heart.
It’s true, you are a beautiful spirit.
You’ve no idea how much the Universe loves you.

And You are made of Love.
It’s time to lighten up – just a little bit more.

With a Million Thanks to dear Summer for her generosity –

Crack the Mystery of the Strange Grumpy Lump

“Oh no, it’s ba-a-a-a-ack,” said Bobby, his massage fingers squeezing the persistent knot between Belle’s neck and shoulder.

“Argh,” Belle growled into the face cradle. “I’ve tried everything for that.”

“Don’t tighten up. Breathe. Breathe into that spot.” His thumb applied tons of pressure to it.

Hurt so good, she told herself, pulling air deeply into her lungs.
Tears filled her eyes. Damn, it hurt.
Breathe. Every month she was here on Bobby’s table. It helped.
Breathe. It helped with all the muscle strains of her nursing job at the hospital.

He eased up a bit.

“What a zinger,” she said.

“Same old trigger point in the belly of the muscle. I’ll work the ends of it.”

“Ahh,” she sighed, soaking up his smoother strokes.

“What have you tried on it?”

“A month of ibuprofen -”

“Tear up your intestines.”

“- hot castor oil packs -” 

“Clear out toxins, good.”

“- eucalyptus rubs -”

“Won’t do enough.” He clamped it under his thumb again.

“Ow! And I worked the trigger point myself, tennis ball against the wall, like you said!”

“Whoops, don’t clench your jaws – that pulls on it.”

She sighed and let go with a whimper. “Head bone’s connected to the – neck bone.”

“You know it.” He held on a few more painful seconds.

“Ohh – this would be called exquisite pain – whoever made up that term.”

“Yeah, sorry about that.” He started rubbing around it.

She knew the routine: deep warm comforting strokes, sneaking up to those damn deep-tissue digs.
For the moment she lapped up the comfort.
Her mind drifted into sweet soft darkness, tinted purple.

“Last time I thought we mashed it out of there,” Bobby said softly, fingering the knob. “It keeps popping up. It’s been like – two years now?”

“I guess.”
Inside her head Belle watched royal-purple shapes congeal, separate, drift.
She wanted to sleep.
With effort she mumbled, “I keep telling it to leave.”

“Gotta listen to it before it can leave.”
The plane of his forearm pressed firm and steady down the slope from neck to shoulder.
It felt delicious until – “whump” – the lump.

“It’s got a mind of its own,” said Bobby. “A stubborn personality.”

Belle saw the grumpy lump rising taller with a scowl on its face. “Next party, I’ll be two-headed. ‘Hey, have you met my lump?’”

Bobby snickered. “Does it talk or just leer at people?”

“It leers.” She tried to relax into the pain, but ouch! 
“Most of the time it doesn’t bother me. Let’s forget it.”

“I’ll do the other side awhile.” He kneaded her left shoulder and neck.

Gratefully wafting into comfort, Belle said slowly, “Yeah, forget that tough little sucker… I don’t know… They say shoulders carry burdens.”

“That little sucker is tough for a reason. It’s trying, but it’s too small to handle the weight.”

She drifted deeper into dark purple clouds, feeling cozy.

“So, what’s the burden?” he asked.

“Ahh ….” she muttered, wanting only sleep.

“What’s too heavy to carry?”

“Mmm …” Now she was Atlas holding the world on her shoulders. She crumpled underneath it, squished.

“It’s your right side, so maybe it relates to assertion or action.”

If she faked a snore, would he leave her alone?

“What’s too heavy to lift?” he prodded.

She saw yesterday’s extremely heavy patient – could barely turn him on his side. She couldn’t fix him.
Here came a long, long line of faces and bodies in hospital beds, parading through her mind.
All the people she couldn’t fix.
For years.
Hair-thin glossy wires ran from her shoulder to each sad patient.
They hung onto her, all of them.
Hundreds and hundreds of un-fixables pulled her down, down, down.

“My patients. I can’t fix them all.”

“Who said you had to fix them all? Let go of that belief.”

“Isn’t that the main idea, to repair them?”

“That’s the impossible idea. You can’t carry them all. That’s your lump, Sister.”

“Huh. I guess that rings a Belle.”

(Wink. Have you had a chronic spot in your body talking to you?
I sure have.
Thanks for indulging this creative flash fiction. – Diane)
