I’m sure many have found this before me. For those of you that haven’t, I just had to bring it to your attention. I love this - so I thought I’d share it with you.

Promise Yourself

To be so strong that nothing can disturb your peace of mind.

To talk health, happiness, and prosperity to every person you meet.

To make all your friends feel that there is something worthwhile in them.

To look at the sunny side of everything and make your optimism come true.

To think only of the best, to work only for the best and to expect only the best.

To be just as enthusiastic about the success of others as you are about your own.

To forget the mistakes of the past and press on to the greater achievements of the future.

To wear a cheerful expression at all times and give a smile to every living creature you meet.

To give so much time to improving yourself that you have no time to criticize others.

To be too large for worry, too noble for anger, too strong for fear, and too happy to permit the presence of trouble.

To think well of yourself and to proclaim this fact to the world, not in loud word, but in great deeds.

To live in the faith that the whole world is on your side, so long as you are true to the best that is in you. 

The Optimist Creed by Christian Larson

Since discovering this, doing research with regards to the  HELENA project, on   I then found it on the . As The Secret in my mind is the most powerful personal development book/film there is, then to find this there, just meant to me … lets get as many people as possible to read it, to enjoy it, to live it.

what is a lifestyle coach?

Posted by Larry on Wednesday, October 22nd, 2008 5:21 PM

If you have decided to adopt a healthy lifestyle, whether it be to lose weight, to prevent an illness, to reduce stress, to start feeling better, or just to achieve more from your life, a Lifestyle Coach can help you find answers.

No matter what your age or where you are in your life today, it is never too late to improve your lifestyle, to make the most of your health and wellbeing. Developing and maintaining a healthy lifestyle will change your life, and this will be for the better.

Healthy Lifestyle Coaching coaches you to meet your personal goals, within a healthy living framework encompassing balance of nutrition, exercise, emotional health, intellectual health, and spiritual health. You choose the goals you want to work toward, and your coach, works with you to develop the tools and strategies that work best for you. Hiring a coach means you are not alone in your quest.

Lifestyle Coaching is also directed to helping people develop more healthful lifestyles toward the prevention and control of chronic diseases and conditions, promoting healthy behaviours and practices in the areas of obesity, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, asthma, physical activity, nutrition, and tobacco cessation.

So a Lifestyle Coach provides people with coaching to help them reach their fitness, health and life goals, and adopt Healthy lifestyle behaviours that can prevent the onset of chronic illness and help manage existing conditions.

Lifestyle coaching benefits a broad range of areas, from eating habits to stress reduction to overall health and fitness levels, specialising in weight loss, healthy eating, exercise, stress management and goal achievement.

Many of the personal lifestyle choices that people make are detrimental to their health. Such things as heart disease, diabetes, cancer and many other major killers may result, at least in part if not whole, from lifestyle decisions they make over a long period of time. Although most of us understand the implications of lifestyle choices and chronic diseases, the ability to adopt or modify our behaviours in such a way that we improve health outcomes is not nearly as simple or easy. Lifestyle coaching is an effective way to help people of all ages, races, ethnic groups, genders and socioeconomic classes to make more healthful lifestyle decisions.

Lifestyle coaching is a professional relationship between two people: the coach assists another person in making some major life decisions and setting and meeting goals that will lead to desired changes.

Lifestyle coaching will help you to live a healthier lifestyle that is balanced, where Monday mornings feel like the start of yet another fantastic week feeling energized, focused and excited. You will attract more fun, humour and success in your life. Work will only be a part of your life which leaves plenty of spare time for you to enjoy your time with your partner, friends, family etc… having fun and doing the things that you enjoy doing e.g. hobbies, socializing, shopping, DIY. Further benefits include a medication-free life and abundant health into your 70s and 80s.

I am a Lifestyle Coach dedicated to assisting individuals improve their health and overall quality of life through lifestyle change, helping people live longer, healthier and happier! My challenge is to guide my clients, and others through for example my Blog, to become and stay healthy. I provide the truth about health, nutrition, and weight loss.

Permanent weight loss cannot be achieved with any of the dozens of diets on the marketplace. Diets don’t work, but living a healthy lifestyle does!

Let me say that again. When discussing permanent weight-loss, weight management and long-term health, diets simply do not work. Healthy lifestyle choices do. Effective strategies that fit your unique lifestyle are what you need to be successful in creating your own personal life-long wellness. Designing a healthy and well-balanced lifestyle plan that works for you is the key to your success.

I am passionate about promoting health and helping others live a more harmonious lifestyle. Healthy living is at the core of my philosophy. It is the main building block to fulfilling your potential for living a happier and more satisfying life.

Your personal healthy lifestyle is not something you can find in a one-size-fits-all diet or fitness programme or from someone else making decisions for you. A healthy lifestyle is one that is unique to you and is easy to sustain. My job is to enrich your understanding of how you can reach your goal and encourage you as you reach them.

To achieve the goal of a healthy lifestyle, as a Lifestyle Coach I will provide my clients with some practical, commonsense tools to guide them in the right direction, toward adopting and maintaining their new healthy lifestyle. If they supply the desire, I will provide them all the right tools and resources needed to arrive at the healthy lifestyle they want.

I use a series of individual sessions – which are sometimes carried out over a telephone, Skype or even via e-mails, as well as through face-to-face sessions – to help people solve their problems and achieve ambitions. As a Lifestyle Coach I aim to help you make the improvements in your life that you wish for!

The Not So Sweet Story on High Fructose Corn Syrup

Posted by Susan on Wednesday, October 22nd, 2008 5:15 PM

It has been hard to ignore lately, the ads running on television trying to dispel the negative reputation that high fructose corn syrup has gained over recent years. It's part of an 18-month campaign launched by the Corn Refiners Association (CRA) in effort to give high fructose corn syrup (HFCS) an image makeover. The message: High-fructose corn syrup is made from corn, has no artificial ingredients, has the same calories as sugar and is okay to eat in moderation.

There is only one problem: High fructose corn syrup (HFCS) is an ingredient in so many products on the could you possibly eat it in moderation? I have found it listed as an ingredient in vitamins, bread, soda, English muffins, yogurt, cereal, ketchup....the list could go on. So unless your diligently reading your moderate your consumption of high fructose corn syrup is nearly impossible.
So how did we get here? Why is the use of high fructose corn syrup so pronounced? HFCS has been used as an inexpensive sweetener since the 1970's and we saw a dramatic increase in its use throughout the 1980's as a result of the high prices of sugar import (the U.S. has a high tariff on any sugar brought into the country and very little sugar is actually produced in the United States....companies looked to HFCS as an alternative to the expensive, high taxed natural sugar). To them it’s simply a product that people buy so they want to make it as cheap as they possibly can to increase their own profits at the expense of public health.
So if HFCS is "good for you", "natural" and made from corn, what could possibly be the drawback? Let's take a look at corn. Contrary to popular is NOT a vegetable, it is a grain. Grains are metabolized by our bodies into sugars very rapidly and cause a huge spike in blood sugar, thus requiring an outpouring of insulin from the pancreas further straining this already so overworked organ. This is one of the major contributors to the massive increase in type II diabetes, obesity and systemic inflammation. Not to mention that several disease states from high cholesterol, heart disease, Alzheimer's and osteoporosis have also been linked to HFCS.
Just because something is touted as being "natural" does not mean that it is healthy. HFCS is in actuality an entirely man-made substance. Nearly indestructible and stable. That is why it is used often as a preservative for foods, not only a sweetener.
We are all well aware that sugar itself is not a purely healthy food. Moderation IS the key. But, unlike with HFCS, many of us know which products contain sugar. It is not hidden as a preservative in food products. In the end, it is much easier to moderate in our diets and is naturally sweet not laboratory made.
In the end, read your labels. Eat natural, whole foods.

There is more to Life

Posted by priya on Saturday, October 18th, 2008 7:29 PM

I have been living in NYC and 8 years later, I have figured out that there is more to life than what NY superfically offers. I love quiet places, nature, taking walks, going hiking, staring at amazing landscapes, figuring out that what they taught us in High School history class is wrong, drinking a nice glass of wine while having a great chat, discovering things that aren't explored that often and most of all a great crime show. I love to cook and try new foods, absolutely love movies especially independent and foreign films. I'm a great listener (and talker), compassionate and love the fact that life is deeper than what it appears to be.

I'm not a big fan of pretention or one-up-manship, people whose sense of humor is at the expense of others, people who misrepresent themselves, and people who can't see outside of the box...oh I I don't like cilantro either.

Just Say No to the Flu Shot...

Posted by Susan on Friday, October 17th, 2008 4:18 PM


It has been hard to ignore lately...the advertisements and marketing of FLU doctor's offices, clinics, pharmacies and even grocery stores. Yes, the time is upon us...FLU SEASON. With the critical time in the flu season being December-February, decision time is now. How do we best prepare our immune we "flu-shot" or do we have other options?

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said a record 143 million to 146 million doses of influenza vaccine will be produced for use in the United States during the 2008-2009 influenza season. The government has expanded the number of people targeted for vaccination to include 86 percent of the U.S. population. The CDC, which previously targeted flu shots to children ages 6 month to 5 years, now says all children under the age of 19 should be vaccinated and recommends the vaccine for anyone at high risk of having serious flu complications or who lives with or cares for people at high risk for serious complications, including pregnant women and people 50 years of age and older.
It would lead us to believe that research varifying the effectiveness of the flu shot is the reason for the increase vaccination recommedation. But is this truly the case?
1. NO...Published in the Archives of Internal Medicine found that flu shots prevent far fewer deaths in the elderly than previously thought.That report highlighted that although immunization rates in the elderly (people over 65) increased 50 percent in the past 20 years, there has not been a consequent decline in flu-related deaths.
2. Not to mention that to target the precise strains of flu that will affect the population in any given season is like finding a needle in a haystack, making it's effectiveness difficult to predict.
3. Many flu vaccines still contain thimerosal as a preservative. Thimerosal (mercury) is being investigated for its link to brain injury and autoimmune disease.
4. Moreover, the majority of illnesses characterized by fever, fatigue, cough and aching muscles are not caused by the influenza virus. Non-influenza viruses (e.g., rhinoviruses respiratory syncytial virus [RSV], adenoviruses, and parainfluenza viruses) can cause symptoms that look like the flu, but are not. The flu vaccine does not protect you against these.
5. Meanwhile, pharmaceutical companies continue to increase their profits with the increase in recommendations.
So how do we best protect ouselves against the flu if the vaccine may not be the answer? The best thing you can do is to start boosting your bodies natural immune function. Now is the time to start preparing you body if it is not part of your normal lifestyle.
  • A healthy immune systems starts with a healthy lifestyle. Whole foods (not processed), exercise, good sleep, address emotional stressors.
  • Wash hands!
  • Vitamin D...Research continues to show that as a population we are becoming more and more deficient in Vitamin D and our immune system is just one of the things that begins to suffer. In the winter months it is often difficult to get the adqueate requirements of sun and Vitamin D, so supplementation becomes necessary. I recommend that all my patients begin Vitmain D supplementation from October through the springtime to keep their immune systems and bodies strong.
  • Vitamin C...higher doses than you may think (2000mg/day). Help keep a stong immune respose.
  • Homeopathics....can increase you immunity naturally. Professional Complementary Health Formulas is a company that manufactures a "Flu Nosode" each year to help protect homeopathically against the years predicted flu strains. Also, products like Boiron's Oscillococcium (available OTC) are great in fighting the flu when you feel like you are coming down with it. It absolutley shortens the duration and severity of they symtoms you may experience with the flu.
  • Lomatium dissectum is an herb that has great anti-viral and anti-influenza properties. It can be taken in pill form or liquid tincture.

A Good Nights Sleep..Insomnia

Posted by Susan on Wednesday, October 15th, 2008 6:20 PM

Insomnia is estimated to affect more than half of the U.S. adult population. Insomnia can take many different forms: difficulty falling asleep or staying asleep, waking up too early, or waking up feeling unrefreshed. In a survey by the National Sleep Foundation, 58% of adults reported having insomnia at least a few nights a week.

Aside from the ever popular sleep aids and medications such as Ambien, what can one do if experiencing sleep difficulties? Good "Sleep Hygiene" is very important. Here are a few ways to naturally promote a good nights sleep:

  • Have a routine: Make your bedtime the same time every night. Even on weekends. Wake up the same time every morning.
  • The bedroom is a place for sleep: Make sure your bedroom is an ideal place for sleep: Keep it dark and avoid having bright lights from the alarm clock or television. Block out any noise. Also, try not to use the bed for activities other than sleep...train your brain to recognize the bed as a resting place.
  • Enjoy a snack prior to bedtime: About an hour or so before your scheduled bedtime have a small snack that contains some carbohydrate and protein. The carbohydrate increases your serotonin and melatonin production, which helps promote sleep. The protein is also very important in that it regulates your blood sugar levels throughout the night. Most people don't realize that when you blood sugar drops at night you will have trouble sleeping. Many times having protein before bed can be an easy fix to insomnia. Sometimes I even have patients have a bit of protein in the middle of the night if they are having trouble sleeping and they will usually fall right back asleep.
  • Shower hydrotherapy: If you are having trouble with sleep, one very easy way to stimulate your parasympathetic nervous system (the part of your body that helps your relax and sleep) is to take a shower before bedtime. This, however, is not just any regular shower. The key is to alternative between hot and cold water. Maybe 3 minutes hot water, then shock your body with 30 seconds of cold water. Repeat this cycle several times and it is very important to END IN COLD. Then jump out of the shower and hop straight into bed. Let your body warm up under the covers. Sounds bizarre, but this really calms the nervous system and promotes great sleep.
  • Lifestyle: Everything seems to revert to living a healthy lifestyle. But good diet and regular exercise cannot be overlooked.
  • Supplements: There are several OTC supplements and herbs that can help promote sleep. Always consult your physician before trying these, as some may interact with medications you may already be taking:

Hylands Homeopathic Calms Forte: Helps to relieve nervous tension and sleeplessness naturally.

Valerian Root: Valerian has long been used for it's sedative effects on the body and as a calmant for nervousness and tension.

5HTP: 5 Hydroxytryptophan is the metabolic precursor to the neurotransmitter SEROTONIN and MELATONIN. 5- HTP provides the quickest, most effective, and most consistent overall results in treating insomnia. It is an effective alternative for dealing with sleep problems in a safe and natural way compared to sleep medicines. 5-HTP improves the quality of sleep. More importantly, clinical studies show that 5- HTP is also useful in the treatment of sleep disorders other than insomnia.
5-HTP increases REM sleep significantly (typically by about 25 percent) while simultaneously increasing deep sleep stages 3 and 4 without increasing total sleep time. 5- HTP accomplishes this by shortening the amount of time you spend in sleep stages 1 and 2, which in certain ways are the least important stages of the cycle. The higher the dose, the more time spent in REM.

Melatonin: Melatonin is naturally produced by the pineal gland in the body and helps to maintain the body's circadian rhythm. Melatonin decreases as we age and often times supplementation can aid in promoting good sleep.

Acupuncture: Chinese medicine and acupuncture can help identify and treat any imbalances that may be contributing to your sleeplessness.


The Marriage of Vision and Success

Posted by SueP on Saturday, October 11th, 2008 9:50 AM

I recently attend the International Living Live and Invest Overseas conference. Meeting the 250+ people here has reminded me of the relationship of vision to success. The people here fall into three categories:

  • Those who dream about living offshore, read about it, but never make a plan.
  • Those who are here and have a zillion questions, wanting to make an international move with absolutely no surprises and insure their success ahead of time.
  • Those who have, in writing, their criteria for selecting a new country in which to live, have made several trips to check out potential locations, and have created a written budget of what they can afford and how they will live.

As you might imagine, the latter group will be the ones who actually act, who will achieve the goal of trying another country as their home. Why? They have done the work of honing their vision, and that solid vision gives them confidence to act and succeed.

It’s the very same with us as entrepreneurs and business owners. We know what we want to walk away from, but we have not taken on the thoughtful and sometimes tough work of thinking and feeling through to what we want to walk toward.  We dream, and share our dreams with others over coffee, but we do not dig in. The more I work with entrepreneurs and home-based business owners the more I find that the unsuccessful ones are half-in, half-out. They have a vague idea of “something different” but their vision isn’t clear. They  have not dug in and done the work of taking their current discomfort and vague dreams of something difference into a lively vision.  And consequently, they take no actions, or their actions lack focus and energy.

Without taking our dreams into vision we do not bring about success. Working with our dreams and creating a heart-felt, written vision will spin our energy toward action, and action drives success. I sure have seen many examples of this as I meet the conference attendees here. Specific actions work best when married to one’s vision. And vision is more than a vague dream - it is the flesh we put on the bones of a dream.

Ad Finem by Ella Wheler Wilcox (a favorite poem)

Posted by Falling Feather on Friday, October 10th, 2008 8:03 PM

Ad Finem

By Ella Wheeler Wilcox

On the white throat of the useless passion
That scorched my soul with its burning breath,
I clutched my fingers in murderous fashion,
And gathered them close in a grip of death;
For why should I fan, or feed with fuel,
A love that showed me but blank despair?
So my hold was firm, and my grasp was cruel --
I meant to strangle it then and there!

I thought it was dead. But with no warning,
It rose from its grave last night, and came
And stood by my bed till the early morning,
And over and over it spoke your name.
Its throat was red where my hands had held it,
It burned my brow with its scorching breath;
And I said, the moment my eyes beheld it,
A love like this can know no death.

For just one kiss that your lips have given
In the lost and beautiful past to me
I would gladly barter my hopes of Heaven
And all the bliss of Eternity.
For never a joy are the angels keeping
To lay at my feet in Paradise,
Like that of into your strong arms creeping,
And looking into your love-lit eyes.

I know, in the way that sins are reckoned,
This thought is a sin of the deepest dye;
But I know, too, if an angel beckoned,
Standing close by the Throne on High,
And you adown by the gates infernal,
Should open your loving arms and smile,
I would turn my back on things supernal,
To lie on your breast a little while.

To know for an hour you were mine completely --
Mine in body and soul, my own --
I would bear unending tortures sweetly,
With not a murmur and not a moan.
A lighter sin or a lesser error
Might change through hope or fear divine;
But there is no fear, and hell has no terror,
To change or alter a love like mine.




On - channeling

Word For Today

E c t o p l a s m a

W I K I on Ectoplasm (eng)

A N A H A T A on Ectoplasma
(dutch - really cool photo's!)

Ectoplasm (from the Greek ektos, "outside", plasma, "something formed or molded") is a term coined by Charles Richet to denote a substance or spiritual energy "exteriorized" by physical mediums.

Ectoplasm is said to be associated with the formation of ghosts, and hypothesized to be an enabling factor in psychokinesis.

Ectoplasm is said to be produced by physical mediums when in a trance state.

This material is excreted as a gauze-like substance from orifices on the medium's body and spiritual entities are said to drape this substance over their nonphysical body, enabling them to interact in our physical universe.

Thnx Thiel


We were talking about a movie today: A.I.; artificial intelligence, a beauty to see and I was explaining to my neighbour that it's a good movie to watch, especially for those Beings Of Light, shown in the movie.
I don't know if you saw the movie, please do if not, I liked it very much at the time.
Thiel was listening-in to the conversation and 'got' the word "Ectoplasma", when I said: "I don't know what substance the beings are made of ..."
So ... I looked it up for I never heard of that word (in this life that is ;-) ....), on Google ofcourse ... and was led to this ...

I saw many 'mediums' with a 'MASK' .. whilst they were channeling (in trance) and it's still ONEderFULL to see that happening.
I also heard people seeing Ramah shining through when I trance-channel ... still it's amazing to see these photo's on ANAHATA website, they look real ...
People who 'don't see' the mask can see the medium change into their father/mother etc. and I had those experiences myself as well, whilst 'talking' for a father/mother etc.
I changed and behaved exacltly like their father/mother, so that the person in common could actually recognize their family shining through the words spoken to them, through me.

Anyone who has more 'info' on this is invited to email me ...

Meditations on-line, Do You Own the Music Copyrights?

Posted by Kerri-RaLuna on Friday, October 10th, 2008 4:37 AM


on behalf of an unknown UK musician, my business partner (the muso Glenn) and myself are "unamused" at the current lack of others business ethics with regards to music use in the background of on-line products. Notably by another local "Spiritual" businesses on-line practices.

Can't find a local musician?

Please remember that the musicians on My-Space are also in business and most would probably Love to work with your business.

Everybody, including You & I know about the basic ideas behind what is called plageurism.

At school it was referred to as “cheating” by “copying” our assignment content word for word from the closest encyclopedia (or these days, Wikipedia).

Despite the publicity over the whole Napster thing (and perhaps due to the start of Limewire) there appears to be  a mental block at the idea of using other peoples music as background for video and audio presentations on the internet.

Metallica excluded, MOST muscicians are actually happy to receive the exposure. Especially those who (like you & I) are trying to make a name for themselves in their niches.

Just like us, these musicians have invested alot of time and money in preparing their product (cds & mp3s) for sale. That is how you got to hear Their Work in the first place.

Just like us, these musicians have organised to use Joint Venture partners (physical & on-line stores & wholesalers). They pay them to sell their product.

Just like us, they need to eat and pay electricity bills to live.

As I said before MOST muso’s are happy to have their music used WITH their knowledge. Most would love the opportunity to JV with you.


Contact Them!

Let them know what you are doing. Let them see Your Work and Why you want to use Their Material.

Offer them the chance to “advertise themselves” through Your Product, Your Website, Your list.

Why Bother?

B.B.E or Basic Business Ethics. You are a professional, so are they. Help them to Help You and both your businesses will grow.

If You do not need their work enough to enter in a business arrangement with them, do NOT use their music.

If you want kudos for your own product RESPECT the others who are helping you create it.

Musicians are in business too. They will badmouth your lack of B.B.E all over their social networking sites. Isn’t it better to have them promoting You on those sites instead?

Take the time, write them or phone them. JV partnersips will work for BOTH of you.

They may even offer to compose an exclusive score for your business!

:) kerri raluna

P.S how impressed would YOU be if a musician redubbed YOUR meditation vocals onto their music as a "demo" for what they do? ...and didn't even say it was your vocals they were using!

"Healing News" Story

Posted by Nellie Renae on Wednesday, October 8th, 2008 9:16 PM

A new found friend and associate from Holistic Local recently sent an email with a request for reading about my own so personal   "Healing News" story.

 In the beginning some folks said not to talk about it, that I should leave it to the past.


But I share the story because I know now that the knowledge I gained must be shared no matter what the cost.


And because I can no longer stomach the thought that we as human beings will just "settle' and live with ailments and disease, but instead choose to flourish as is our birthright!


My incredible journey back to finding a renewed state of well being and consciousness has aided, blessed and helped folks heal their bodies!


This is my glorious reward, to see how quickly their bodies respond to natural therapeutics, energy  healing and herbs from our mother earth!


I am always anxious to share!


But before I begin, I have to make the following statements concerning my stand and take on "natural medicine".


 I cannot stress heavily enough the importance of gaining absolute true knowledge when it comes to choosing to utilize the awesome power of nature's healing properties.


"Why, because natural treatments, therapeutics, essential oils, tonics, and herbs are powerful and should be researched before use!


Not all herbs, vitamin supplements, items labeled organic are created equal!


Most are just not "optimally" engineered to what our body needs! They may provide some benefit, but you will not get the most beneficial effect possible.


Some items labeled organic still contain aspartame and other artificial sweeteners and some very inorganic ingredients!


Some therapies being used out there are "forced" therapies (and this is my opinion!) ...which means it forces the body into a seemingly healed state but may cause harm in other parts of the body.


I believe in "non-force" aiding practices which are intervention therapies aiding not forcing the body, aiding until the body can truly heal itself!


Find reliable interaction charts, learn what not to take with what, will it thin the blood, raise blood pressure, affect diabetics, read and research about how, why and when.


If you do not feel comfortable or find this is too much work, gratefully there are natural supplement consultants (like myself) who can muscle test you and provide optimal natural body balancing supplements!


"It is essential that we take time to listen to the bodies own built in innate sense of wisdom when it comes to healing, because every healing is a unique and personal experience."


"Body Talk" is an invaluable tool to guarding your health and for use in preventative and healing measures.


Balancing results in metabolizing what goes into the body and how, what and when whatever comes out is the "key" to the secret garden of health, your fountain of youth!


The best part is that YOU HAVE CONTROL AND DECIDE to meander as slowly or as quickly as you WANT along this path to discovering your natural, raw state of well being!


We have become too non-chalet when it come to taking control of our own health and the destiny of our wellbeing and that of our loved ones and yes, community!


The old saying it takes a village to raise a child still stands today, more importantly that ever before!


Our children and ourselves are dying for lack of knowledge and control!


Our foods are being modified genetically, and that means so are we, inside and out!


So, finally here is my own personal "healing news" story.


 After being exposed to mold when hurricane Lilly  damaged our home in 2002,


I came down with a serious, debilitating skin disorder that was literally turning my skin and organs into stone.


I could no longer smile, sing, walk without falling, or swallow without choking.

My hands had curled into claws, I could no longer care for myself or my family.


I felt as though I was wearing an underwater scuba diving suit that was four times too small.


I could not get a good breath of air. My body functions and organs were shutting down.


The many specialist doctors I had seen of offered no hope.


I was placed on six medical prescriptions. I was being 'treated" for depression, anxiety disorder, fibromyalgia, high blood pressure, diabetes and a heart arrhythmia which the doctor said would never go away until I died.


One morning I woke up on the floor, I could not open my eyes. My words came out jumbled, I thought I had had a stroke. I could not move my body.


My son and fiancé rushed me to the hospital where it took almost six hours for me to open my eyes and to be able to move the rest of my body.


That day I thought about leaving my beautiful son and life partner because I could not bear being a burden upon them any longer.


I prayed throughout the night for an answer.


How could I bear to leave them? I knew they still needed me. So I began to pray.


I prayed for God to take me or heal me.


The next morning, it was as if an invisible force picked me up and led me to the computer. My hands just went and typed and I could feel my mind being enlightened.


Hour after hour my hands typed in words without thinking, words that I knew were leading me to the healing light that I sought.


I began having visions, and began as I fondly call it "auto writing". The words would just come when I put my pencil to the paper.


One day my sister introduced me to a natural, healing soap. My finger was split and infected. She gently washed my wound with the soap and within one hour the redness was gone!


I had lived on an anti-biotic for so long due to the fact that my skin would split wide open just upon the slightest movement and would become infected.  My body was full of yeast, my face bloated beyond recognition.


Soon after I began bathing and detoxing in this natural soap, I no longer needed the anti biotic.


That was almost five years ago! Not one anti biotic since then have I needed! Folks began to notice the difference in my skin. I was so thrilled I encouraged my family and friends to begin using the soap. This was not hard once they saw the changes in my condition.


The one message I am so grateful for today read, "You will take much time for study and learning."


And for a year, I did just that. I had an insatiable hunger for knowledge, and every day that passed I began feeling more hope not just for myself but for the world.


I studied and utilized the healing powers of nature. I learned and watched in awe to see how fast my body healed when I applied the healing properties of herbs to each symptom.


Within one month, I had thrown away all but one of my chemical prescription medications!


The 45 pounds I had gained began to melt away.


I was introduced to homeopathy, natural hormone balancing, chinese herbal medicine, and I learned that what happened next was a form of energy healing.


One day, as I sat outside on the porch, my cat came over to me and lay down stiff as a board at my feet. He was so still, I thought he was dead.


I put my hands out over him and felt a love beyond all love. As I ran my hands over him, I saw inside his body in my mind. I could feel  where he needed healing, and an energy began to flow from my hands into his body.


After what seemed like an eternity, he sat up and shook his head, and if a cat can smile, he did.


This was only the beginning of many miracle encounters and instances that would lead me to my healing mission.


One day as I sat in CC's coffee shop, a woman who worked there dropped a tray of packs of sugar, and I rushed over to help pick them up.


As I reached for a packet, my hand reached out to touch her arm. I could see she was in agony.


I simply said, "I can help you with the pain in your arm."


She never hesitated. She said, "Allright, when and where can I meet you and can I bring my sister who has fibromyalgia?"


I said, of course.


They came two days later. The report that came back a week later was miraculous and I felt so happy. The arm was healed, except for occasional twinges. She was sleeping and her husband had asked if she had lost weight.


And the ladies sister had loss much of her stiffness and pain.


After that day, I have been called to  serve many. I learned so much from each of them that I call them my "Blessed Blossoms."


The next miracle that would occur would be that my son who would be cured of reoccurring pneumonia and a viral infection through natural soap, herbs, and energy work.


So many times he had been near death since birth and his body could just not fight this viral infection.


The antibiotics he was given were no longer working. His health was failing, and so we put aside the prescription for antibiotics and I began giving him rounds of Hyssop and Pau d' Arco.


That was almost three years ago. No more pneumonia, only slight instances of bronchitis. When we see the symptoms, I begin his treatment immediately.


Now I have switched his Hyssop and Pau d' Arco to Mullein and Burdock because taking Pau d' Arco can thin the blood if taken too much and too long.


I want to stress once again that herbs are very potent. They can be just as harmful as chemical drugs if used incorrectly.


The next miracle now is that I began to see that when I worked on people's heads that the hair would come back in wherever it was thinning or missing.


And or the hair that is there becomes more natural, the oils come back in, and the hair lays in a natural pattern once more.


Now I have folks who drive in from out of town so I can work on getting their natural hair back in!

World healing Meditation from Quartus: John Randolph Price

Posted by Scott on Wednesday, October 8th, 2008 1:03 AM

In the beginning
In the beginning
In the beginning God created the heaven
and the earth.

And God said Let there be light:
and there was light.

Now is the time of the new beginning.
I am a co-creator with God, and it is a
new Heaven that comes,
as the Good Will of God is expressed on
Earth through me.
It is the Kingdom of Light, Love, Peace and Understanding.
And I am doing my part to reveal its Reality.

I begin with me.
I am a living Soul and the Spirit of God
dwells in me, as me.
I and the Father are one,
and all that the Father has is mine.
In Truth, I am the Christ of God.

What is true of me is true of everyone,
for God is all and all is God.
I see only the Spirit of God in every Soul.
And to every man, woman and child on Earth
I say:
I love you, for you are me. You are my Holy Self.

I now open my heart, and let the pure essence of
Unconditional Love pour out.
I see it as a Golden Light radiating from the
center of my being,
and I feel its Divine Vibration in and through me,
above and below me.

I am one with the Light.
I am filled with the Light.
I am illumined by the Light.
I am the Light of the world.

With purpose of mind, I send forth the Light.
I let the radiance go before me to join
the other Lights.
I know this is happening all over the world
at this moment.
I see the merging Lights.
There is now one Light.
We are the Light of the world.

The one Light of Love, Peace and Understanding is moving.
It flows across the face of the Earth,
touching and illuminating every soul
in the shadow of the illusion.
And where there was darkness,
there is now the Light of Reality.

And the Radiance grows, permeating, saturating every form of life.
There is only the vibration of one Perfect Life now.
All the kingdoms of the Earth respond,
and the Planet is alive with Light and Love.

There is total Oneness, and in this Oneness we speak the Word.
Let the sense of separation be dissolved.
Let mankind be returned to Godkind.

Let peace come forth in every mind.
Let Love flow forth from every heart.
Let forgiveness reign in every soul.
Let understanding be the common bond.

And now from the Light of the world,
the One Presence and
Power of the Universe responds.
The Activity of God is healing and harmonizing Planet Earth.
Omnipotence is made manifest.

I am seeing the salvation of the Planet
before my very eyes, as all false beliefs
and error patterns are dissolved.
The sense of separation is no more;
the healing has taken place,
and the world is restored to sanity.

This is the beginning of Peace on Earth
and Good Will toward all,
as Love flows forth from every heart,
forgiveness reigns in every soul,
and all hearts and minds are one in perfect understanding.

It is done. And it is so

Exploring "Bio-Identical" Natural Hormone Supplements verses Synthetic

Posted by Nellie Renae on Tuesday, September 30th, 2008 3:41 AM

*Bio Identical:

  replicating origional  properties to the closest degree possible

Many woman have said to me, "I am uncomfortable seeing a male doctor

to discuss female hormones replacement. The can be so crass when it comes to talking about my symptoms.

I sympathize. For more years than I care to remember, I was given a synthetic

(horse urine) supplement. I worried about the warning label saying it could

cause breast cancer, and blood clots.

But my symptoms without it was a nightmare. So I continued and prayed.

Finally, my prayers were answered.

A friend of mine who worked in a Bio lab had been researching and searching

for bio-identical natural plant based hormone balancing products that did not have to be filtered through the organs.

I bought some from her after muscle testing my body and I "pinked" to it right away.

That was three years ago, and I am so grateful to my friend for so many changes that took place in my body after using the products.

Please read on to hear the rest of the story and how you can order the best bio-indentical balancing hormones we could find!

Also, you can receive:

One free 30 minute with 15 minute resting mini "KeySecrets to Anti-Aging" body toning rub and energy balancing session when you purchase a Bio-identical hormone set!

Or, if you do not live in my area, you can experience an intuitive transcendental long distant energy session.


It seems that around the age of 25, we our progesteronebegins to unbalance which begins to affect our youthful appearance.

Not only do we begin to "prune" and shrink without it, but here

comes a vast array of problems and symptoms that can turn even the most cheerful heart into a dragon.

Then it is reported that when estrogen gets out of balance, it actually " turns" on itself which creates havoc in the body. Too much testosterone and we get too "squared, manly and our breasts

become thin and droop.

As we age, the saying is and I see this happening all the time:

Woman turn into men, and men turn into woman!

And what about that bent over humping as we age?

I can tell you that I have grown straighter since I have used these!

I cannot say enough about these hormone balancing lotions.

They have really changed my life as well as my fiances life since he began using them he looks as though he has lost 8 years and he is so much stronger and happier.

I love them because you need no prescription, they are plant based, long lasting (more for your hard earned buck!) no synthetic horse urine, ooogh! No pills to swallow...




*There are less than 50 health professionals who specialized in bio-identical hormones.

No waiting rooms.

YOU are in charge of your body!

Suzanne Sommers is 60. Does she look awesome for her age?


She has tapped into this incredible secret and supports Bio-Identical hormones.

But they are not all made equal.

My friend worked in a Bio Lab for years, and in her search she

found what I use now.

The closet to identical to what the body produces that we have found.

May I share what happened to me after I began utilizing these?

My skin cleared, my skin and muscles toned, my voice became feminine again. I became leaner, folks actually asked if I had gotten a little taller! Hot flashes were very minimal, and when I had them I knew to just increase the dosage.

The other problem is dryness. Just use the Estrogen vaginally.

I alter it vaginally to underneath where we get that "turkey" neck. It helps it to tone up...

I felt as though I lost 10 years! lines and wrinkles are going, going and gone from much of my face.

Special Note:  It is often easier to control and monitor symptoms by using two or three separate products for progesterone and estrogen support rebalancing because estrogen and others seem to  often not be needed daily.

It seems important to "rest" from the products occasionally, such as for three to five, to up to as much as 14 days.

Please take time to listen to your body!

It is best to use too little than too much. You can always add more

during as the day moves on! Most times a tiny pea size is all you need!

To begin your transformation, send an email quick! so we can

get you started.

I promise, it will be the best investment you can make for yourself and loved ones!

Adding years to your life,


I love you

Posted by Wilson on Sunday, September 28th, 2008 9:05 PM

I love you – a poem that came to me tonight


Love in all it's limitless glory, love inside all of us, love inside you, love inside me. I love you, I love me, I simply love all things that be. I love the water, I love the sea, I love the way in which visions come to me. I love the Kali yuga, I love the eternalized spiral plea, I love the goldfish swimming around in ever present omnigalactic presency. I love the forgetfulness, I love infinity, I love the way things taste to me. I love literature, I love thee, I love the whole game, in it's complete unbiased sincerity. I love sugar, I love sweet, I love integrity, yes I love me.


How far we have come to get to this place, This ever-unbound cataclysmic space. I hear angels calling out your name, I hear footsteps awakening slumbering brains. I hear droplets of systematic waves, I hear consciousness remembering your name. Bright, light shining now through & all over me, how far we have come for all of this to see. Come now be yourself, be you, be me. Come now be yourself be entirely free.


Your wait filled life, your weight filled life is coming to a chapter new. A chapter were truth, elegance & energy unwind entwine unfold anew. A new paraphrased illusive nightmare, a new sponsoring endless thought, a new graceful intelligence of stupefied horror, a new game for me & you. Where is all of this coming from, I hear you frightfully ask, a space inside all of us, a place deep behind the mask.


Illusion is what it is, for it is never what it was. Illusion is everything coloured, flavoured with intensity & with love. Name calling, people falling, into a dark embedded abyss, why does this even come close to adventure when nothing is everything that there is. We'll fly away into another day, were our hopes are given half a chance, at least to breathe & to dance.


I feel it, so close now.

Here we stand, here we will be….


I love you, I love me

I am thee….


In peace, love, light & service

abundant blessings to you




we are all one


To the stars & beyond…..

Oh, Rose Hips!

Rose Hips, the fruit of the rose after the flower has bloomed and the petals have fallen are native to Europe and N. America.
n. The aggregate fruit of the rose plant, consisting of several dry fruitlets enclosed by the enlarged, fleshy, usually red floral cup that is used for jelly or tea.

Rose Hips were referred to as "Food of the Gods" by the ancient Greeks and used for their varied health benefits.

"Dr. Body, do you like Rose Hips?"
"Yes, oh yes!", and may I tell you why"?

During WWII, when faced with a serious shortage of fresh fruits, the governments of England, Sweden and Norway began looking to botanicals. n. A drug, medicinal preparation, or similar substance obtained from a plant or plants.
They discovered that Rose Hips were an excellent food source.
Because of their abundance, they were used in teas, soups, purees, etc.
Rose Hips are still used today often brewed into a delicate tea.

Oh, Dr. Body! May I tell you why I love "Rose Hips?" Because it is packed with vitamin
C, and because well frankly (don't call me frankly!) it is transforming my skin to clean and clear,
tinges my lips and cheeks pink when used as a natural lip gloss and blush, relieves stress when I drop a bag in my bath water, as well as giving me young, sexy hips at the age of 51!

Shift of the wheel-Autumn Equinox

Posted by Ann on Monday, September 22nd, 2008 8:23 PM

I looked out of my window this morning, and saw a mist rolling in from the sea. Brr autumn was here. Today the Autumn Equinox is-when the days get shorter and the nights longer.

As a Rune reader, the pertinent rune of the month is Kennaz. This looks like the greater than symbol and it means being a creative beacon- go getter, catyalist for change, new knowledge and passion. Wow !  A perfect time to start new courses, pick up the phone to make that call or to really follow your passion. And Nature is behind you hence making it flow.

So here I am on my first blog on this site -doing what I love, writing.

Heres to creativity flowing in the right direction.

For details of Rune readings and my latest workshop on How  to read the Runes  on Saturday 27th September in Hove East Sussex,
