A Love Like That

We are called to keep on loving.
Allow, allow, allow people to be themselves.
They may not reciprocate.
But at some level, they hear you.
Like water, love wears away the roughness, little by little.

If you’re tired, take a break. Go away for awhile.
Most important, love yourself.
Be soft and kind to you. (Try this quick tip.)

Don’t lose faith in love.
Fill up on Source Love.
Open your crown and connect.
Light is always pouring.
Love is the very air we breathe.

Stand in the Love
Revolutionary Shift –  Diversity is Our Strength

The Curious Energy on Money

Here’s a cool snippet from Lyall Watson’s The Secret Life Of Inanimate Objects.
Would paper money have a “secret life” or hold onto energy?
(We’ve heard that a money exchange is an energy exchange, but we’re talking about a different energy aspect here.)

Watson conducted a few experiments with paper money, exploring the idea that money picks up energy from all the people who handle it.
He asked a group of psychometrists to handle three varieties of sealed envelopes: brand new banknotes, used banknotes, and blank slips of paper. (Psychometrists do readings on objects to gain information about their history, their owner and such.)

The psychometrists easily identified the used notes as money.
However they could feel no difference between the envelopes of brand new bills and the blank slips of paper. The new bills had apparently not picked up any energy.

This energy accumulates on paper money from being handled and circulated among people who value it.

Watson also worked with a couple of Europeans who were blind. Both of them were dismayed to hear that all paper currency in the USA is the same size. How would a blind person deal with that, they wondered.

However Watson asked them to sort out some used US currency.

Just by feeling the bills they were able to easily recognize the $1 bills and the $100 bills. They made no mistakes because the bills carried distinctively different tones.
The $5 and $10 bills felt about the same and wound up in the same pile.
But 20s and 50s felt more valuable, somehow reflecting the esteem placed on them through years of use.
And of course the $100 bills felt particularly valued.
Brand new bills remained confusing, apparently because they had not yet been instilled with people’s energy.

Watson went on to interview several blind people in the USA to find out how they deal with currency that’s all one size. They said they tend to rely on fairness in their transactions with others. But at the same time most of them said they have a good feel for the value of the paper money they handle.

Certainly we do handle a $100 bill in a more respectful way than a $1 bill. We might feel free to crumple up lesser bills. When given a $100 bill we feel more impressed. (I do, anyhow.)
Apparently our attitude clings to this paper money.

This shines a new angle on the idea that money is energy.
Psychometry also gains some validity, and it appears we all may be more psychic than we realize.

It might be fun to do your own experiment with different denominations of well circulated paper money.
Close your eyes, mix them up, and sort them out according to how much value you feel in them.
See what you come up with.
And tell us how you fared!

Just a little summer fun from Joystream.
(Yikes, I managed only about 50% accuracy in my small, medium, large denomination piles. You can do better!)

Watch Out for Thin Skin, How to Handle It 

Ouchie, skin tears are no fun. As we age we tend to get thinner skin, especially on the arms. We casually bump into something, and it rips. What’s up with that?
Skin thins out from age, dehydration, sun exposure, and sometimes from corticosteroids (like Prednisone).
As we weather the years, without special care our skin loses hydration, collagen fibers, and natural oils. (So be proactive, care for your skin and reduce the odds!)

Here is the care you need for strong healthy skin.

  • Great hydration. (Add celtic sea salt to your water – see Watercure for best hydration.)
  • Shade yourself from the sun. Wear long-sleeved shirts and hats. Or use good sunscreen (but avoid sunscreen with parabens, which cause multiple health problems).
  • Moisturize your skin a lot. Dry skin leads to thin skin. And dry skin tears easier. Good choices are Jojoba oil, vitamin E oil, and vitamin C cream. You might try medical grade moisturizers such as Vanicream. (Some recommend Cetaphil and CeraVe – however for any topical product, check its safety at EWG’s Skin Deep cosmetics database.)
  • To boost the health of your skin, eat nuts, fatty fish, tomatoes, and spinach. If you like you can take flax oil or fish oil. (Be aware that fish oil also thins the blood.)

    (In the past couple years, needle rollers are all the rage for building collagen. I researched them but apparently they cause skin infections so I’m not going to recommend them.)

If you already have thin skin and frequent tears, it is even more important to use moisturizers and to drink plenty of water, along with healthy sea salt.
In addition ask your doctor about topical vitamin A (retinol, Retin-A cream).
Protective arm sleeves are a good idea.

How to treat a skin tear like the one in the picture:
1  Wash the wound with saline water.
2  Gently move the flap back into place and spread it down as well as you can.
3  Pat dry the area around the wound.
4  Use a nonstick petroleum gauze on the wound and bandage it (without putting tape directly on skin). If you don’t have access to petroleum gauze, and the wound is small, you might try leaving it open to the air and dabbing a little antibiotic ointment or petroleum on the raw areas. (Of course you want to protect it with a bandage, but if that wound to sticks to the bandage it will tear again.)

Our bodies last longer now than ever before, but the aggravations of age can be challenging.

As one of my favorite ladies of all time said, “Getting old is not for sissies.”

Shine on.

5 Places the Mind Goes – a Meditation

A busy mind can drive us crazy. To get a handle on it, notice how the mind goes to only five places. Sorting your mental stuff into these five categories helps you
– find the quiet space
– become fully present to this moment
– sharpens your intuition.

Helen Palmer developed this meditation on the five categories of busy-mind. The categories are

  • thoughts
  • memories
  • plans
  • fantasies
  • feelings (emotion or physical sensation)

Helen Palmer uses two stages in this approach.
First you go “In and Down” into yourself, into your quiet belly.
Secondly you engage in “Loosening and Letting Go” each of the five mental categories.

Start by going within.
Take a comfortable seat with your spine straight but relaxed. Breathe deeply into your belly. Allow all your muscles to soften.

Place your attention on the far wall – whichever wall is furthest from you.
Now place your attention on the wall behind you.
Place your attention on the floor in front of you.
Bring your attention to book reading distance, as if a book is floating in front of you.
Notice that you have charge of your attention, and your attention goes wherever you ask it to go.
This is no small thing, taking charge of the focus of your attention.

With the next in-breath, place your attention on the air itself as it flows into your nose, down your throat, into your lungs, down deep even further to the belly.
The belly is dark and soft. Let your attention rest in your belly.
Watch your belly stretch horizontally with every breath.
Allow the natural pace of your breath.
Observe your abdomen expanding and relaxing.
Stay down here in the belly, calm and comfortable.

For the second stage, Loosen and Let Go of each thing arising in your mind by naming it as one of the five categories.

Bring in a thought, any generic thought, like the weather or news. Notice it, then say, “This is a thought, and now I let it go.” Return to your belly, that soft place, and observe your breath.

Next bring in a memory – from childhood or from last week. See yourself in this memory, see the whole situation, the people, what you were wearing, the sensations, the smells.
Then step back and say, “This is a memory, and I release it now.” Breathe and return to your belly.

Call up a plan – maybe your grocery list, your vacation plan, or career path. See it, explore it a moment. But label it “Plan – this is a plan, and I put it away. I return to my breath and my belly.”

Bring in a fantasy, like winning the lottery or a trip to some exotic place you’ve never been. Any kind of fantasy. It’s yours. Let this fantasy dream take shape and gain sensory details.
Then mentally step back and remind yourself, “This is a fantasy, and I let it go.” Again return to your belly. Watch as the belly stretches with every breath.

Finally call up a feeling. It can be an emotion, like that sadness or anger you felt earlier today. It can be a physical feeling, a tight or sore spot in your body. Go into it for a moment. Let it be whatever it is.
Then say, “This is a feeling. Now I release it.” Return to your breath and your belly.

Return to the quiet soft space each time.
Returning in this way builds your Inner Observer.
Your Inner Observer shows you true awareness and broad perspective beyond ordinary busy life.

Anytime you meditate, allow the categories to arise spontaneously. Name each one and set it aside. Do not jump on and ride it into an illusion.

You have charge of your attention.

Here’s a cool benefit.
If something arises that does not fit any category, it may be your intuition talking.

This meditation habit leads to increased energy, peace, contentment, discernment, and clearer communication with your Source.

We send tons of gratitude to Helen Palmer for teaching this method to millions throughout the world in her decades of teaching meditation and the enneagram.

Powerful Cure Yucca Juice? Worth it! 

It tastes so bitter you want to shiver.
Slug it down without a frown.
It soothes your guts of all the cuts.
Food allergies gone, a brand new dawn.
Yucca erases your pain –
You have everything to gain!

What’s this Yucca Schidigera extract I keep recommending?
It’s the golden key to feeling great in your body!
It heals leaky gut, food allergies, colitis, IBS, arthritis, bone and joint pains, body pains.
(The benefits are well worth the bitter taste.)

It restores your whole digestive tract, heals every tiny erosion from stem to stern.
For hundreds of years American Indians have used yucca to treat wounds, abrasions and skin diseases. In the same way yucca restores the inner skin, the mucosal lining of the entire digestive system.
And you know good health depends on your digestion.

Yucca makes food allergies a thing of the past.
What “off-limits food” would you enjoy eating again?
Yes it IS possible.

When leaky gut is healed, food allergies disappear and inflammation drops.
We are talking aches and pains, fibromyalgia, lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, ulcerative colitis, IBS, autoimmune disease of all kinds.
Heal the digestive system, settle your stress, and that inflammation will leave you.

WebMD says yucca is used for colitis, stomach issues, arthritis, joint pains, migraines, diabetes, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, liver and gallbladder problems, as well as skin sores, skin diseases, baldness and dandruff.

Pharmaceutical companies are now using yucca components in new drugs.
Better to use natural yucca itself for  these benefits, I think, don’t you?

About ten years ago I heard about yucca juice and used it to heal my intestines and quit my food allergies.
More recently a few weeks ago, I came home from South America with a surprise: some parasites in my belly, wreaking havoc.
My naturopath tested and found I was newly sensitive to gluten, dairy, caffeine, spinach and anchovies. (What the -?? I know. That’s how strangely leaky gut unfolds.)

Anyhow, for 16 days I took mouthfuls of the recommended capsules of herbs to rectify this travesty.
I also drank yucca juice extract.
In this relatively short time, my gut was totally restored to health – parasites gone, food allergies gone. No more leaks in my gut.

Ten years ago there was only one source selling Yucca Schidigera, and that was T&J Enterprises.  They still sell it by the quart. (At that time their web page was filled with enthusiastic testimonials from those who had stopped their rheumatoid arthritis by drinking yucca. Currently their page lists scientific reasons why yucca heals particular ailments.)

In 2018 you can find Yucca Schidigera sold by many other companies, but only in little dropper bottles. You will need more than that.
So I continue to suggest T&J Enterprises. (Don’t be scared off by the fact that they also sell organic garden products. This is a good reliable company, and they’re friendly on the phone.)

Yucca Schidigera must be watered down to effectively help your body.
It is a thick brown syrup, looks like molasses, but (oh boy!) tastes extremely bitter.

  • Begin with 1/4 teaspoon in a quart jar (or liter) of water. Drink the whole thing to saturate your innards. You can chase it with some pure water or a little juice.
  • Drink this twice a day, morning and evening (20 to 30 min before solid foods).
  • You can build up your dose to 1/2 teaspoon in that quart of water. (If you get loose stools, back off on the dose. It’s not going to hurt you. But you must be sure to dilute it with lots of water!)
  • You can add “Just Like Sugar” (chicory root sweetener) for better flavor. Or you can put yucca into half-strength grape juice, which hides the bitterness but is so high in fructose, probably too much sugar for a sensible person like you.

I will be excited to hear the benefits you get! Let me know!

One more note from T&J Enterprises:
Daily use of Yucca Schidigera extract “reduces arthritis, reduces gout (lowers uric acid), reduces trans fat digestion, reduces carpal tunnel syndrome, reduces cholesterol,  restores cartilage, reduces colitis, reduces irritable bowel syndrome, prevents sore muscles, use as a shampoo to stop hair loss and restore hair growth, helps people to stop smoking, detoxifies the intestinal tract.”

Inhale the Frequencies You Like – It’s All You  

What does it mean that this is a holographic world, and you are holographic too?
It means every part of the universe contains all the parts.
You contain everything in the universe.
Mind-boggling, yes?
Just go with it for a moment.
You have access to everything.
You are in touch with everything.
You can bring anything “in” because it is already in.
You’re just bringing it to the surface of your awareness.

You can shift and bring in a beneficial emotion like hope, gratitude and love (see HeartMath).
You can also bring in materials. Because materials are actually made of vibrations. Each thing has a particular frequency unique to it.
Saints and sages have focused on the frequency of the object and manifested it out of thin air.

Most of us aren’t there yet, but we can bring in frequencies and more.
Let’s start with something easy. An orange. You know oranges.

Take a moment now to breathe deeply into your spine all the way down.
Let your belly and relax and expand with every inhale.
Every breath melts away areas of tension.
Allow your body to melt.

Feel, sense, or imagine that you’re holding a ripe orange in your hand. Feel the plump weight of it. Feel the texture of it, that smooth and rippled skin. It’s a beautiful color. Check it out.
What does your orange look like?
Can you smell it?

Get ready to peel it. This one is easy to peel. Dig your thumb into the top and peel it open.
The natural oils flow as the peel bends. The wondrous aroma fills the room.
Feel the softness of the inner side of the peel. It comes away easily.
Now open this orange into sections.
One section breaks and reveals the orange corpuscles inside. It smells lovely.

Place a section of orange into your mouth. Savor its texture.
What is it like to bite into it?
Feel and taste the juiciness bursting in your mouth.
Take your time.
Have another section.

Chew slowly with great appreciation for every nuance of taste, smell, and touch.

Enjoy every bite of this lovely orange, fully engaging your senses.

Enjoy the moment . . .

You have just eaten a vibrational orange.
How do you feel? Satisfied? 

If you have iron-poor tired blood, you could focus on the strength and stamina of iron.
Bring it to the surface of your awareness and let iron soak into you.
Bring it into your cells.

Let yourself relax into the notion that you do have every vibration and frequency of within you.
Every substance, every fruit, every leaf.
Every kind of nutrient, vitamin, mineral or remedy beneficial to your body is within you.
You can call any of these to the surface anytime you like.

Breathe deeply and try this:
“I now bring in all frequencies my body needs, in perfect proportions for me. All nutrients, vitamins, minerals, hormones, enzymes, all in healthy balance, in every cell of my body. Thank you.”

Tune in. Feel everything balancing inside.
Bask in this interchange.
Everything you were ever seeking is actually within you.
Tell us, what does it feel like to you?

This is an effective self healing method – of the future, if you can’t quite believe it yet.
Keep it in your back pocket for now.
Someday if you miss breakfast, call up an orange.
Thanks to Dr. James Martin Peebles for his teachings on these very ideas.

Cut Loose, Cocoon with Mother Earth

There you were, a small child watching that honey bee disappear deep into the throat of a flower. It was the first time you had ever seen such a thing.
You took in the bright rich color of that flower, the whole shape of it, every fold in the petals, the powdery stamens, the way the stem held and supported the flower. You were so young you wanted to know everything about this.
The bee was still deep inside. How much space was down there anyhow?
You wanted to follow the bee to the honey.
You were attuned to Mother Earth.

Fast forward a few decades. Life is busy. You have a constant list of obligations. Every time you finish a task, another crops up. You’re clearing out the duties. But they multiply rapidly. Your mind keeps picking up new ones.  You say, if I can just get these two extra things done today, I won’t have to do them tomorrow.
Actually it makes no difference. New obligations will pop up tomorrow.

Go, go, go.
When you go real hard and fast, pushing yourself (stress hormones rising, cortisol aging every cell, immune system failing), you know what happens?

You get sick. Sick enough that you must lie down and rest. Could this be your body and soul complaining about not having time to enjoy the beauty right here in front of you?
Funny how those duties and obligations seem to get along fine without you for a few days. You’re too sick to lift your head off the pillow. Was it worth pushing yourself?
I’ve been there. Many times.

This week in our meditation group we settled into the earth with deep breaths.
We went to a place in nature. A place we loved, a place we had visited, or even our own backyard.
We went into the role of a little child. We looked carefully at things as if this were the first time and the last time we could see them. A particular tree, the leaves on a bush, a line of ants, a lizard, a hummingbird.
We placed a golden thread between our heart and theirs so we could feel and sense their being in a deeper way.

It felt so good to slow down and feel our way into these natural beauties. To treasure them.
To become like a little child to enter the kingdom that’s here always.
To drop our busy blinders and love Mother Earth.

Remember when you felt that your backyard tree was a person? I remember this. I remember when  frogs could talk (by telepathy).  I communicated with grasshoppers and butterflies and flowers.
Didn’t you, too?
Young children are onto something.
Esoteric teachings tell us everything has consciousness. Even rocks have a kind of consciousness.
Mother Earth herself has consciousness.
When was the last time you shared a real moment with our Mother Earth?
She needs our love now more than ever.

This month I want to carve out a few minutes every day to slow down and take in the natural world.
I want to talk to the leaves, crickets, blades of grass. I want to listen to the bird song.
I want to take the time for Mother Earth.

Come join us for meditation class on Tuesdays (Phoenix) or Thursdays (Fountain Hillsboy-faces-butterfly-725x544(Thanks to Pixio for this pic.)
