The power of Love, treating allergies, Simone Milasas on money, free Lion Goodman event, astrology update and Abraham


# 1 – Yes!


# 2 – A natural way to treat allergies…

(For more information about ACV and its many uses and benefits, check out my To Your Health page on the All One Together website.)

# 3 – A few days ago I listened to a presentation by Access Consciousness facilitator and Joy of Business Blogtalk Radio host Simone Milasas.

It was about money, the body and receiving and it’s only 30 minutes long, so easier to fit in your schedule than all these hour and a half presentations being offered by everyone under the sun these days. I really enjoyed it….found it stimulating, enlightening and helpful. Sometimes less really is more. :-)

# 4 – The Shift Network is sponsoring another free event…

On Wednesday April 17th, personal transformation pioneer and Belief Closet creator Lion Goodman will be giving a free teleseminar on his simple, powerful and proven method for releasing old beliefs to free you to receive and achieve higher level results in all areas of your life.

# 5 – An astrology update from Chris Flisher of  Sounds like we may be in for a wild ride…

Week of April 15, 2013

The third week of April brings an enormous, almost unbelievable, contribution to history. The number of significant, impactful events that have occurred at this time of year is startling. The Lincoln Assassination (4/14/1865), the sinking of the Titanic (4/14/1912), the Oklahoma bombing (4/20/1995), Waco, Texas (4/20/1993), the birthday of Adolf Hitler (4/20/1889) all occurred in and around the third week of April. Simply incredible. This year brings a certain drama with it as well. A Full Moon Lunar eclipse will occur next week on the 25th, but we could be feeling the impact as soon as this week. We will witness the Sun and Mars entering Taurus on Saturday as Mercury and Uranus align while squaring Pluto at the same time. The conjoining of Mercury and Uranus brings an electrical potential of the highest order. Since Uranus typically vibrates at a higher octave of Mercury, that same sort of sparky, communicative, impulsivity exists. All of this activity sets the stage for a full Moon lunar eclipse next week at 6 degrees Scorpio.
# 6 – And a little “mind-twister” from Abraham…

You don’t have to go where you don’t want to be to get where you want to be. You can go from where you are to where you want to be.— Abraham

Joy, Balboa Island, reversing Alzheimer’s, making kefir, indoor farming and more!


# 1 – A picture is worth a thousand words, and the short story with this one adds to the enjoyment…

And a great way to visit Balboa Island without leaving home…

# 2 – Did you know that using inexpensive, all-natural substances such as coconut oil and vinegar can be used to treat and help prevent Alzheimer’s?!

For more on the many benefits and uses of coconut oil and apple cider vinegar, check out my website’s To Your Health page. And for other articles on how to use natural means to treat Alzheimer’s, see these other posts at my Self-help Health blog:

# 3 – This is a great site to know about…

I’ve been spending a lot of money lately at the health food store for kombucha and kefir, but am going to try making my own. This site even has a kefir water grain that allows you to make non-dairy kefir using water, fruit juice or coconut water, plus offers how-to videos and a free e-book with recipes. Check out Cultures for Health and let the fun and fermentation begin!

Make Kefir at Home

# 4 – Indoor farming! An innovative trend beginning to take root (pun intended :-))…

# 5 – Food for thought…

“The only difference between the sage and yourself is you see the world and you identify with it. You think it’s real. A sage sees the world and he knows it’s a superimposition upon Consciousness. So he identifies with Consciousness.” – Robert Adams

Befriend yourself, more on diatomaceous earth, buyer beware,, Mother Nature, and more!


# 1 – Self love is the most unselfish thing you can do for yourself and everyone benefits in the process!


# 2 – Diatomaceous earth is one of my favorite alternative health remedies because it’s so simple to use, has multiple benefits, and is very inexpensive. I’ve featured several articles about it before, but this one mentions several uses and precautions I wasn’t aware of…

(FYI, one place to get diatomaceous earth is Raw Food World ; they also have additional information on its benefits and how to use it, PLUS it’s one of their “At Cost Specials” through the end of April. Yea!)

# 3 – Buyer beware/aware! You may not be getting what you paid for….

# 4 – Here’s an interesting site/resource….it’s billed as “better than craigslist for the spiritually aware” and offers the opportunity to place free ads, share your events, goods, services, etc.

# 5 – Spring seems to be taking its own sweet time coming to the Asheville area this year, but here’s some food for the soul from Mother Nature and my friends Dan and Mariana Watson, who took this picture…

# 6 –  A new world is emerging…

Radiation, the thyroid, and iodine, iodine, iodine: Part III

Here’s Part III of the information and tips on radiation, the thyroid and iodine. For Part I (tips 1-6 of this series), see my 8/16/12 post ….and for Part II (tips 7-11), see 9/8/12.

# 12 – Using bentonite clay for dealing with heavy metals, radiation, and more…

I like the idea of putting the clay in a pillowcase or something similar when taking a clay bath so that you don’t have to worry about clogged drains. Also, offers a “clog-free” detox clay. And if you’d like more info about bentonite clay….

# 13 – An update on the radiation situation and ways to deal with the side-effects naturally…

FYI, whey and seaweed, two of the things recommended for off-setting the effects of radiation, are available from Emerald Essentials in the form of their Action Whey and Emerald Sea supplements. I have used both personally and highly recommend checking them out. Use kinesiology or some form of self-testing to see if they are something your body wants or needs. I’ve gotten to where I self-test before buying any kind of health products these days and my body always tests strong for these two items. Emerald Essentials is having a special on their vanilla Action Whey until 2/28, where you get 2 free when you order 6.

# 14 – This mentions something I hadn’t read before, a link between fluoride in your water and thyroid dysfunction…

It also mentions the presence of fluoride turning up more and more in our foods. Did you know there’s a high amount found these days in brewed black tea?!

More on the link between fluoride, the thyroid and iodine…

# 15 – Symptoms of thyroid imbalance, how to test and ways to improve the situation…

# 16 – A short video on using coconut oil to improve thyroid health…

# 17 – An insightful blog post by Dr. Nikolas Hedberg about the importance of selenium and its link to thyroid health and iodine deficiency…

# 18 – And to help off-set all this emphasis on “serious stuff”…

Feeding the field, Ecuador’s president, Earthing, free distance healing, inspiration and Abraham


#1 – The Global Coherence Initiative and feeding the field of coherence…

# 2 – Yes!

# 3 – Don’t miss this free presentation by David Wolfe on the benefits of Earthing. Watch now and sign up for the free webinar on Thursday.

(FYI, the Vibes Up products provide earthing/grounding, too, plus have other benefits and uses. You can check out a previous posts on 3/17/12 and 6/17/12 for more details.)

# 4- An interesting read about the president of Ecuador. Maybe the US could learn a little from him…

# 5 – QiGong master Michael Mohoric is offering another no cost distant energy healing…

It’s for everyone who wants to join and all their friends, families and anyone else who reads this. The main healing session is SATURDAY, FEB. 23rd from 6-7 pm Pacific Time or same as Los Angeles, (9-10 pm ET-same as New York).

You can join this free distant energy healing session by using your intention to be included. If you wish to join, just close your eyes for a minute when you read this and mentally say that you intend to join the session and want to be included. That is all you have to do to connect with the energy; healing energy can begin to flow to you once you do this. There will be unscheduled daily energy adjustments leading up to the main session.

For those who want to know more about this work, you can go to

# 6 – And some Abraham to end on…

“Begin modulating thought in terms of the way that it feels rather than in terms of the results that it will net you. The tendency is to flow a little Energy and then take score. Well, the problem is, as you flow the Energy, the Universe responds instantly. But when you take score, you’re right back in that reality again.”— Abraham

Love and more love, benefits of whey, joyful visioning, Tama Kieves, and more!


# 1 – Yes!

# 2 – The benefits of including high quality whey in your diet, including halting cancer and HIV…

(FYI, one of the best, if not the best, wheys I’ve found is Action Whey from Emerald Essentials. Tastes great, too, and my body always tests strong for it. See what your body “says.” :-) And EE is having a sale on the vanilla whey thru 2/28, where you get 2 free containers when you buy a 6-pack. I also use their Emerald Sea. Great stuff!)

# 3 – Creating the life you want with ease and joy…

People will say, “Well, I have to work on my goals,” or, “I have to work on my visualization.” And we want you to think more about holding the vision because it is pleasurable to hold the vision, not because you’re trying to make the vision work in order to get to some place that you’re not now standing. “How much should I work?” We would say, work in the sense of joyously moving forward— Abraham

(Also see the Visioning page of this blog for more on this topic.)

# 4 – A great quote from Tama Kieves…

“It takes so much energy to hide yourself. When you have a job that asks you to hide who you are, it’s like having two full time jobs instead of one. When you have a job that engages all of who you are, it’s like having no “job” at all. There is right work for you. You are designed to thrive.”

# 5 – Thought for the day…

# 6 – And in honor of Valentine’s Day, a great blog post from The Weathly Spirit’s Chellie Campbell…

“Today I forgive all those who have ever offended me. I give my love to all thirsty hearts, both to those who love me and to those who do not love me.”—Paramahansa Yogananda

One Valentine’s Day fell on a Friday, when I had a regularly scheduled business networking meeting. Joe Reber, an estate planning attorney, had brought a valentine for each member of the group—one of the small valentines that we used to give each other in grade school. I could see everyone’s face light up with pleasure as they received their card, remembering with nostalgia their grade school Valentine’s Days. Joe told me he gave one to an older woman he saw at the grocery store and she started to cry. She said she hadn’t gotten a valentine in forty years.

Is it good business for him to do this? Yes.

Is that why he does it? No.

It is clearly a gift from the heart, meant only to give people a moment’s happiness. That’s why it’s good for business.

I want to refer business to a man like that.

Today’s Affirmation: “I give gifts from the heart and they flow back to me in return.”

I remember that Le Tip networking breakfast very well – it was so much fun seeing everyone get their little paper Valentines. When you see people’s faces light up, and that “Awww, thanks” expression, you truly feel how all of us on this planet are connected through the heart.

Celebrate love today. The love of your spouse, partner or significant other. The love of your family – mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers, aunts, uncles, grand-nephews, third cousins twice removed – everyone, including the Family of Man. I love Yagananda’s blessing: “I give my love to all thirsty hearts…”

Me, too.

Enjoy this day we celebrate love with loving. May an unexpected miracle of love touch your life today!

Love and hugs,


Enjoy….and Happy Valentine’s Day, “Zippy”

Aquarius new moon, Mother Nature, oil pulling, bear tagging, gratitude & gifting, free Emotion Code Starter Kit, and Abraham


#1 – It’s hard to outdo Mother Nature…

# 2- In my 9/6/12 post I included a link to an article about coconut oil and dental health and speculated that using coconut oil for a routine called oil pulling would be a good idea. This article confirms that I was on the right track and I’ve been using the protocol on a regular basis lately. What’s nice is oil pulling has so many benefits!

(Visit my website for more information on the many benefits and uses of coconut oil.)

# 3 – A great video for you animal and nature lovers. It’s sure to make you laugh, which, I’ve found, makes the evolutionary process easier than just about anything else!


# 4 – An insightful, inspiring, entertaining video on Gratitude, Gifting and Grandpa

# 5 – You can now get the Emotion Code Starter Kit (an $85.95 value) for free!
This is something I “paid good money for” when I began learning the energy process a number of years ago, so I highly recommend taking advantage of this offer. Also, if you’re interested in scheduling an Emotion Code/Body Code session (the process works as well remotely as in person), just let me know.
# 6 – An insightful article about Aquarius and the upcoming new moon…
By  at· February 6, 2013

It’s another New Moon! The wishes you make now may indeed be super-powered, but if you don’t have a strong relationship with the archetypes, don’t expect special favors. If you rarely visit your eccentric Aunt Ella, don’t expect her to gift you with a new iPad on your next birthday. New Moons are potent times to forge alliances with the gods. Open yourself to their touch. Bow and make an offering. Humans have been rendezvousing with these archetypes for thousands of years. When you call out to the gods, they do respond.

Calling Aquarius

People say Aquarius the Water Bearer was actually human. He was a shepherd named Ganymede, who was so gorgeous, Zeus spirited him to the heavens to serve the thirsty gods water and wine. But this isn’t the full story. He was also a radical, always disturbing the village. He was teaching the sheep how to climb trees. While his sister was sleeping, he dyed her hair purple and blue. Afternoons he served fortitude tea to the crazy woman everyone hated. She adored his inventions: a thorn-bush goblet-scrubber, sandals-on-wheels, a wooden cart with wings, an eyepiece that revealed the fish on the Moon, and finally, a catapult that carried his resume to the heavens. He wanted to serve in a big way. Zeus hired him to be the gods’ water bearer, until Aquarius devised an ever-flowing water urn out of stars, leaving him free to pursue other ambitions.

Often, when Aquarius visits, he acts like a teenager. He rolls his eyes a lot, always hates what I like, spends hours locked in his room. He’s constantly texting, tweeting, updating his Facebook profile, or playing with the apps on his iPhone. At first I thought Aquarius disapproved of me. Then I discovered the notes he left in all my favorite places. Some contained a quietly brilliant idea to make my life better. Others posed a question so startling, my world spun. Twice he shared visions of my future in such detail I believed they would actually come true. He’s a good friend now. His face betrays little emotion, but he’s very compassionate. He cares more about the world’s well-being than anyone I know. He loves this season, when the snows melt and it rains on Saturdays. When the clouds break, he takes me to an orchard of dead-looking trees and points out the tiny buds sprouting on the branches. His eyes are always looking to the future.

Honor Aquarius this month by breaking out of your box. Awaken from the midwinter slumber of your limitations. Your inner genius is ready for a revolution. Aquarius is the cycle to raise your energy. In fact that’s the best way to call in Aquarius: Liberate yourself!  Is there someplace you’ve been feeling stuck? If you’re not living the life you want, Listen. What has your spirit been longing to do?  No sign has a greater connection to the future than Aquarius. It rules progress, innovation and breakthroughs. But first you’ve got to clear out all the musty, droopy, angry, wimpy, static energy of the recent past.

The inner and outer spaces mirror each other. If your work has been uninspired, rearrange your office and throw out old papers. If family relationships are not as harmonious as you like, give your home a top-to-bottom cleaning. A simple ritual for this New Moon is to become your own Water-bearing Angel. Fill an atomizer or spray bottle with energetically charged water. Charge the water by placing a crystal in it for at least 24 hours (before that, clean the crystal by soaking it in a bowl of salt or under the sun’s rays). If you’re familiar with Dr. Masaru Emoto’s work, you know that writing positive intentions on the water bottle (“grace,” “radiance,” “fertility,” “passion,” or “peace”) will further charge the water molecules. Dip a sprig of pine in the water to double its energetic potency. Pine is purifying–it smells clean too! On the day of the New Moon, visit all the rooms in your house and mist them with your ritual water. You should notice the difference instantly! Enjoy the newly charged air. Be alert. New inspirations may come pouring in.

Aquarius’s Response

Waiting for the response is the fun part. No way can I predict it for you. But if you’re edgy, itchy, and irritated, know that you’ve been touched.  If you find yourself shouting “No!” to something you’ve tolerated too long, Aquarius may be prodding you.  Or you might be suddenly inspired to figure out all those gizmos you’ve received as gifts—like your latest palm device. Or maybe you need a new appliance or two.Aquarius is THE cycle to upgrade your life. Take advantage of the latest technologies. Gadgets may seem like a tame way to celebrate this brilliant deva-but they are potent emblems of the possible human and its divinely inspired capacities. With a palm device you can instantly connect with the world. With your Aquarian genius, you might log onto the brilliance of the universe.

# 7 – And from Abraham…

When people ask us how long does it take for something to manifest, we say, “It takes as long as it takes you to release the resistance. Could be 30 years, could be 40 years, could be 50 years, could be a week. Could be tomorrow afternoon.”— Abraham

# 5 – Here’s something from the folks at Mind Valley about your chakra system that you might want to check out…

Active meditation is a great way to overcome the resistance within your mind, but the truth is that your mind is only one part of a larger energetic ecosystem.  And if any part of this system is weakened or blocked, it can interfere with your ability to get the most out of your meditation practice.

Your 7 Chakras are the main energy centers within your body and any of them are potential areas where energy can get stuck and stagnate.

So how do you know which parts of your system are tripping you up?

>>> Try this quick quiz from Energy Therapist Carol Tuttle 

In just 3 minutes, she’ll help you find which of your chakras are blocked or weakened.

Meaning you’ll be able to see exactly how each of your 7 Chakras could be helping – or hurting – your meditative flow, right now.

# 6 – An astrology update from Chris Flisher (….

Week of January 21, 2013

As the Sun and Mercury move through Aquarius, the connection to Jupiter in Gemini becomes more important simply because it combines the like energy of fellow air signs. Aquarius and Gemini operate within the cerebral realm and raise the conversation to all things intellectual. With Aquarius as the predominant sign we can expect larger, humanitarian ideals to come forth, especially as a big bold Leo Full Moon appears lighting the sky late in the week. Responsibility and duty remain important global themes as Saturn holds our deeds and goals to the highest point while in the deeply intense sign of Scorpio. Saturn in Scorpio brings out secrets and flushes away that which is tawdry and illegal. Fixed signs such as Scorpio and Aquarius have little room for flexibility so we can expect the terms to be strict between Saturn and the Sun and Mercury.

How does this work for you?……see video for extended forecast for planet.

# 7 – Now, for some “bad” news :-)….

Self love, eat your kale, Panache, Plant-e Technology, and Tapping World Summit


# 1 – Something to always keep in mind…

“You yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection”― Siddhārtha Gautama

# 2 – A quote from Panache that ties in nicely with Tip # 1 …

The key to changing the world, to changing your life, and to empowering those around you is authenticity – the willingness to be yourself – the willingness to be vulnerable – the willingness to feel – the willingness to live. I’m simply reminding you of who you truly are, supporting you into self-love and acceptance by eradicating the judgment that you’ve imposed on yourself and society has imposed on you. ~ Panache Desai

# 3 – If you don’t already eat kale, this may be enough to change your mind…
