Multipure Drinking Water Systems

Multipure has been a leader in home drinking water systems since the 1980’s .  They are NSF certified for both aesthetic and health concerns.

Their solid carbon block filtration system removes cancer causing EPA priority pollutants from your drinking water for only 8 cents a gallon.

Multipure is a point of use system and does not waste water making water like reverse osmosis (RO) systems. This is very important in the drought ravaged western United States.

Multipure patented the solid carbon block filter and is the least expensive filter on the market.

Multipure  removed the VOC’s from your water and leaves the beneficial minerals ( for your bones and for taste) in your water.

By far the best system on the market, for your health, the environment and for your wallet.

Visualization Practices for Chemotherapy ~ Changing your Mind -Changing your Body

January 16th, 2014 Posted in Mind-body Healing, Self Help Tags: ,

Instructions and Visualization Practices

You can do the first meditation when you feel yourself or your energy pulling in and your heart contracting. This constriction often happens when you are in hospital and being shuffled around from place to place or having multiple tests done in one day. Your energy tends to contract in because you are experiencing pain or feeling unheard. If you can consider that each person, helping and serving you, is administering LOVE this can help you to relax and open the body to the healing being offered. (Challenging I know but a good practice.)

Meditation for Maintaining your Space

Imagine a ball of light just below your navel, it is luminous and shines like the sun. You can play with this ball of light; imagine you can spin it left and right & front and back. See this ball of light expand from the size of an orange to the size of a grapefruit or even bigger if you like.

Feel this vital energy ball fill your abdomen with luminous light and see and imagine it expanding upward into your chest. Envision and see this light filling the area around your heart and lungs with this luminous light. It fills your heart, lungs, upper torso and heart chakra with energy and vitality.

Here’s a hint that can help: Imagine this light ball is like a water balloon, as it bursts open see its light spread out in all directions as one big splash.

Another Trick for Building Energy

You can also open your hands and ask source/spirit to fill your hands with energy, like sand in an hourglass your hands fill with energy. Sometimes this energy will feel warm or cool. Then when your hands are full imagine that you can take this energy and place it into your belly and your heart. This will help you build and maintain your personal energy.

Meditation for Taking in the Light Energy of the Medicine as Luminous Healing Light to Purify Your Blood and Karma

When you are having chemotherapy, imagine that the medicine you are being given is an elixir or nectar of the gods. This can counteract any negative ideas you may have about the medications you are taking. See the medicine spread through your blood stream. And as it does it becomes clear luminous light that lovingly vaporizes any cancerous cells held within your body.

This luminous crystal-like light is strengthening and balancing your cells bones and tissues and nourishing your body. Do not let doubt cloud your mind or imagination. Focus instead and imagine that this luminous healing light effortlessly vaporizes all the cancerous cells in your body.

Your chemotherapy and medicines can become liquid crystalline light that removing all traces of both cancer cells and tumors thus making room for healthy red and white blood cells.

Instructions for Working with Physical Discomfort & Emotional Pain.

This is so important and a vital key to understanding how to work with pain. Pain is contraction——If you can relax your body pain will subside. If you can relax and let go of your fears your body and mind will relax. Your body follows your mind. (Really, I have used this for years)

If you can realize that pain, anxiety, fear, doubt, anger and sadness are contracting energies this is a huge step into healing. Try this, instead of tightening the muscles and closing yourself off, when you feel pain or powerful emotions, just breath in deeply and relax the muscles and your thoughts. If your body is in a relaxed state it cannot hold onto the pain, fear or doubt. When your body relaxes the pain and emotions can dissolve into space.

So, when you first feel pain and your body tightening, notice where you feel this tension and gently examine it. See if it has a color, if it is hot or cold and stay present with the discomfort instead of avoiding it. Then breathe into it and as you breath in and out, feel your body begin to relax. The pain will dissolve and subside as you let go of the fear of the pain. (This too may be challenging but once you develop your ability to observe your body’s reactions, the pain you are feeling will change.)

Memories of helplessness and vulnerability may surface. If this happens you can investigate this too. Ask yourself where you have felt these emotions before and also notice any areas in your body that are tense when you feel these emotions. Allow and give space to your experience, let your mind float and see what arises in your mind’s eye.

It is important to follow the first thing that comes into your mind, as this is your intuition speaking. Feel into your feeling or memories, gently touch them, and allow yourself to understand them more fully than ever before And as understanding dawns you can use the elements of fire, water, or wind to burn and wash these memories & emotions away. Also see a clear luminous light, like that of 100,000 suns, vaporize any residual energies from these memories, emotions and beliefs.

This way you release the energies and traces from your present and past and let your mind, body and heart experience a new found spaciousness as you release emotional pain that has been taking up space within your body.

Healing is also an opportunity to discover how much you are loved, how others care for you and that receiving that care and love is your heritage and birthright.

A Thought about Radiation Treatment

Think of radiation as luminous light nothing more nothing less. It floods your being with light that enlightens you and fills your being with vitality and healing. It also has the capacity to erase from your cells, bones and tissues any unconscious negative energy, emotions or beliefs associated with your well-being and health.

Dis-ease Another Perspective

Disease and illness can be great teachers. Fighting illness and disease is the most common approach but what if you sent unconditional love and mercy to your body instead. When love flows in life there is a natural openness and relaxation that takes place. Your brain is filled with neurochemicals called endorphins and these endorphins can ameliorate pain. So love is the key.

Decades ago when I studied with Hawaii’an healers they taught just that… to send love, care and blessings to wounds and illness. By sending calm loving thoughts, and encouragement to the body the vibrational energy actually changes. The patterns of stress that the body holds are released and this opens up an opportunity to heal like never before.

Illness becomes an illuminating guide or teacher when viewed in this way, allowing you to heal what has gone unnoticed and unhealed in your life. I encourage you to try this.

Always be gentle and easy with yourself, know that the child within you is scared, as is the adult, and take care of that part of yourself. Also without a doubt that you are surrounded night and day by love… from your family, friends and the inexhaustible compassion of God and all the Buddhas.

My Wish

May these practices be of benefit to you and to all sentient beings. May you find peace and realize your true nature, and may you be free from pain and suffering.

 

Chemotherapy …… A Warning

September 20th, 2013 Posted in Environmental issues, Self Help

A dear dear friend was in the hospital for leukemia and was having intensive chemotherapy… 24 hrs a day for nearly a wk at a time…. His body and skin were so saturated that I picked it up when I touched and gently massaged his arm and feet.

Just a warning this stuff is nasty and I was doubled over in pain in less than an hr after I left the hospital…

Classic homeopathic remedy  I used was  Nux Vomica 30 C    in 10 mins I felt better

Be very careful,  3  months later I have even noticed that my hair is thinner.

We all want to comfort our friends —so just be careful.  A few clients who are nurses say they are always gloved with chemo patients.

 

Healing Symptoms by Working with Past Life Memory

In 1991 for the first time in someone other than myself I saw how past life memories can grip us and how physical symptoms can manifest as a result.

Lynn a student of mine came to class wanting to understand why her heart was beating so erratically and irregularly. She has been to the emergency room many times in the last few months and knew it was more than the lack of prenatal manganese that the doctors has told her was the cause of her hearts rapid and irregular beat.

She never imagines what would happen next, but her heart boomed as she walked to the door of class like never before on that wintery night. Perhaps it was fear–perhaps it was something else entirely.

We began class with the usual meditations to ground center and connect with ones inner knowing then since the class was exploring and working directly with the organ systems we naturally began with the heart that night.

The meditation was a simple one. I gently instructed people to connect with their hearts beat then guided them to go back in 10 year increments and visit the hearts of their past. Listening for anything the heart and body wanted to share with them, and see if there were any patterns of holding at the different time in their lives.

As I led the group in this process Lynn zoomed through this life and was whisked to a memory that shook her to the core. Here is what she remembered and felt in every detail.

Immediately she felt cold stone at her back and she saw the night sky filled with stars, she realized she was lying on a stone slab on her back, surrounded by her tribe. She knew she was being sacrificed to the gods and that she would never reach adulthood. She was about  to enter puberty, life was just about to begin for her.

Things became intense for her when she saw a man with a silver bracelet and a dagger in his hand standing poised to strike. She was frightened and did not feel this was an honor as she elders said it was. As he plunged the knife expertly into her chest, and removed her heart, offering it to the gods and taking a bite of her heart before offering it to the tribe. She watched this scene from above and felt a presence of woman singing to her as she spirit left her body. She said later that she understood how heart surgery felt after this experience.

As I asked everyone to return from this journey and come back to waking consciousness, each emerged with stories their hearts had reveled to them. Lynn shared what she remembered, felt and saw and as she spoke she realized that the man in her vision/memory was her boyfriend with whom she lived.

She said he too wore a wide silver bracelet in the present like the one she saw in the past. She was awestruck. But the most amazing thing she said was that her heart was quiet now, it was not beating rapidly or irregularly and she breath more deeply than ever before.

Lynn ‘s experienced an incredible release that night and regained a piece of her personal eternal story that calmed her heart and over the nest four months of class and 1-1 sessions her symptoms disappeared as she understood her relationship to the man she loved like never before.

Your body, as embodied spirit, is your greatest gift.  It sets you apart from other sentient beings, and makes you uniquely able to heal old wounds, memories and emotions by working directly with your body and consciousness.

You can discover not only who you are, but who you have been. This knowledge, which I call the” body of experience” lives within your cells, bones, tissues and chakra system. And this vast pantheon of info-energy can help you connect the dots in your life to both your recent and ancient past. Once you can see the patterns held within your body, as energy, emotions and beliefs, you have the opportunity to change these imprinted memories and traces from within‑ just like Lynn did.

I have moved my office.

Aloha,

Newtown and Guns

December 18th, 2012 Posted in Environmental issues, Women's issues Tags:

It is time for change. Our gun laws need to be substantively altered forever at a constitutional level. Yes, the right to bear arms seems necessary in a free democracy but the weapons used in this tragedy must be banned. No rapid fire guns no assault weapons. Registration and waiting periods of wks not days. Please like no other time before may we come together and NEVER ALLOW THIS TO HAPPEN AGAIN! Tears are not enough. The Grace of God is not enough. We have to act as a modern citizenry WE MUST ACT. Against the madness and against the gun lobby NOW. Let cool minds and open hearts change this legacy of violence forever.

—The gift of 2012—Hear the Stories and Song of your Soul

Each and every one of you has a story that is remembered by your consciousness,  your cells, bones and tissues.

When you discover the narrative of your past and story of your soul you can find aspects of your self and past life selves that can help you understand your symptoms, relationships and emotional blocks.

As you reconnect the dots  your true self comes alive and into balance. Harmony, power, truth and beauty manifest.

Balancing and remembering allows for the roots of old wounds, both physical and emotional to finally be laid to rest. Struggles evaporate.

MARRYING THE INNER FEMALE AND MALE IS KEY NOW. You are ripe for this  for bringing your intuition and intellect into alignment with  full awareness. The time is an ending only in that we are releasing an old way of being. Forces are aligning that make deep healing and empowerment possible.

This is the challenge and the opportunity  of 12.21.2012.

To find a new ways of being , beyond the old paradigms, to connect the dots to discover your ancient source self and heal and release the duality that has existed for eons.

Bringing light and energy into the bodymind  and building new neuro pathways, so you can be embodied  like never before—-in awareness with  cosmic  and individual consciousness singing with stillness and power.

This is the gift of the transformational moment we are in. Let go of your past. Lay down outdated ways of reacting both in your mind-body and nervous system.

Take a deep breath and breathe in the stillness—–the light of the stars in the night sky. And become ONE within your self and manifest this unity with all that is around you.

You are a spiritual being that has embodied on earth at this time – you are meant to know what it means to be embodied spirit.

The energy of the primordial wisdom is all around us —drink it in and allow for the energy of change within your cells, bones and tissues to course thru you and into the earth.

Visualize  a golden light of 10,000 suns radiate into your being and flow down your spine and into your legs and out your feet. See the energy flow into the earth along a grid that connects to the matrix within the earth.

Feed the earth with your energy and love and dip into her stillness and bring that back into your body. Be the bridge between spirit and the earth you are meant to be. And feel the deep connection that exists between all beings.

See the old structures melt away— see and feel compassion and peace replace fear. Imagine  a new earth where truth beauty and peace abide in fullness.

Vote for Obama! Vote for HOPE

October 22nd, 2012 Posted in Environmental issues, Women's issues

As a woman I urge all woman to vote for Obama—- he will keep our rights over our own bodies and not take us back to the 50’s . Energetically  he is the man for the job!

That other guy, lies and changes his mind like some people change their underwear…….daily.

Can’t trust him and his running mate is as bad as Palin. Both are souless !
Anyone who thinks Obama hasn’t done anything is NOT PAYING ATTENTION.

And Remember folks he came in with a HUGE mess that Bush and others like him have left behind since the 1980’s.

Think about it.  Do you want to retain rights over your bodies! Do you want to have equity?  If so then the vote is simple!

Clear The Way To Get Pregnant: Somatic and Energy Healing Can Help You

 

Clear The Way To Get Pregnant:

If you have been trying to conceive, this easy, yet profound, practice can help you achieve success. Bringing you new energy, vitality and balance to your mind, body and spirit that will allow you to clear the way to getting pregnant.

Many of you have been through the pain of loss, I know how devastating that can feel. It tears you apart. Your very soul is shaken to your core and you unable to breath. The loss is so huge you don’t think you will survive.

As a means of surviving, you pull yourself together and move on, thinking these emotions have gone away when in reality they have been suppressed— and without resolution they will only return often when you least expect it.

What I have seen in my decades of working in the field of healing is that these intense emotions, stay with you.

I have discovered that these emotions and traumatic experiences imprint themselves upon your very body. The grief, shock, pain and sorrow live within your bones, cells, tissues, energy body and organs. But there is hope.

In 1991, I devised a way to work directly with the body’s energy and organs to release these imprinted memories from the places where they have been hiding. This is what I can offer you, a way to work directly with the imprinted memories and emotions that are within you.

As a woman when you are intimate with a man you take him into your body, this leaves an imprint and an energy signature upon your womb, and sexual organs. His energy stays with you.

When you loss a baby through miscarriage or if you have had an abortion the energy stays with you in much the same way as a man’s energy stays with you.

This energy, vital force or chi seeps into your cells and settles there. If the relationship or pregnancy ends— you are left with the remnants of that experience as energy imprinted within you. Each intimate relationship you have takes up space within your womb, and energy body.

Likewise miscarriages and abortions have a similar effect, energy imprints are left behind. These imprints are like tiny scares. These events may not only leave you with emotional scars but with emotional residual energy that can deeply affect your ability to conceive.

I saw this first-hand 26 yrs ago, when I was working with a woman who had just miscarried. As she lay on the table images of old loves and embattled relationships began to surface in her mind’s eye. Deep grief and pain welled up as she revisited her painful past.

As this was occurring, energy from her womb streamed out of her body. As she cried tears for the losses and pain from her life, her energy began to release and clear.

This was the first time in someone other than myself that I saw and felt the power of how our past is imprinted within our body and mind. She had never thought twice about the wounds to her womb and yet here they were.

And yet it was so important to clear and resolve these hidden emotions in order to begin the healing process.

She walked away from that session struck by the difference in her body and mind, and how while disquieting at first her experience was, she left feeling lighter, as if, a burden had been lifted from her.

Loss is felt in your womb, in this lower energy center often referred to in Buddhist traditions as your second heart. It is also the place in your body that corresponds with your 2nd chakra, an area regarded as the seat of your emotions and relationships. So, in order to conceive, this area must be clear and ready to receive new life.

Because once these imprints are made they stay with you. They arise again and again until they are released once and for all. This emotional pain can keep you from conceiving. Your womb is too full energetically for anything else.

There is a great need to release your past relationships, pain, sorrows and miscarriages. Anything that has impacted you deeply must be released from within your womb. You need to revisit your past to heal your present of this I am sure and I know in my heart that this will enable you to make a start fresh. Free from the pain and suffering your womb and heart have held.

There is a simple and direct practice which can help you begin the clearing process. It can help you clear the way for deep and lasting healing of your womb enabling you to energetically make space for the baby you long for.

The child you long for will be drawn into that clear space and allowed to make a fresh unencumbered start in this world.
