Where is Your Energy? – Maybe You Need a BioElectric Shield!

Sterling Silver with Gold Tab BioElectric Shield for Electromagnetic Protection

Do you ever feel scattered or confused? Or do you sometimes feel like you can’t seem to figure out what to do next?

The energies lately have left many people feeling scattered, confused, and like they are swimming around in circles but going nowhere.

It was particularly bad a day or 2 ago. Then suddenly it seemed to break free and there was forward momentum once more.

 Even if you are not being battered around by astrological influences, you might experience these same sensations at other times.

Since its my job to figure this stuff out and help you deal with it, I’ve been “inspired” with several possible causes and some great techniques to clear up the problem.

When I use the word “inspired,” what I mean is that I suddenly have the realization or an inner knowing that came directly from Higher Wisdom. Much of what I share with you comes from that place. Practically all of my writing does.

There are three fairly common causes of the confusion, lack of focus, and even tiredness that sometimes happens. There are many other causes, of course, but these three I find most often. They are not in any particular order.

1) The first cause is that you have picked up energy from someone else. It may be a person that you’ve been intimate with – a sure way to pick up their fears, beliefs, and issues. It could be someone you are connected to or communicate with often. It can often be someone that you get emotional about – whether they make you feel euphoric or furious.

The way to remedy this situation is to simply ask, “Is this mine?” whenever you are feeling off, out of balance, or not quite like yourself. If you dowse, you can ask the simple yes-no question and get your answer. If it is not yours, then just ask that it be returned to whomever it belongs to. I often ask that it be put through a violet filter so that when it returns it has already been cleaned up.

2) The second cause is often that you are “off somewhere” trying to help or understand something. When I say off somewhere what I mean is that you are physically here, but your awareness, a part of your consciousness, is off somewhere else trying to solve a problem or assist someone else with theirs.

How many healers and other spiritually minded people wake up in the morning completely exhausted? They’ve been out all night working or learning new things.

As an Industrial Engineer and spiritual teacher, much of my focus is on discovering and healing the root cause of issues.

If I’m in the middle of a conversation and a topic comes up that I have not discovered the root cause of, part of my consciousness often immediately leaves and is out there trying to figure it out.

That’s the reason that an hour, a day, maybe even a week or more later, I suddenly have the answer. Boom. It seems to come out of nowhere. 

If I’m feeling tired or mentally foggy, I often dowse with one of my favorite charts and ask. “What percentage of my consciousness is with me here right now?” I find that if the number is less than about 80%, I don’t have the clarity I desire.

The next question I ask is, “Is whatever my consciousness is out there doing something critical?” If the answer is no, then I simply say, “Please return all my conscious awareness back to me right here right now. Thanks.”

If whatever I’m doing out there is critical, then I find the best course of action is simply to take a nap.

If you are not a dowser, when you are feeling overly tired or mentally foggy, just say these words, “Please return any energy that does not belong to me to whomever it belongs to. And please return all of my consciousness to me right here right not. Thanks.”

You will be absolutely amazed at the difference when you’ve done this. You will immediately feel lighter, less stressed, have more mental clarity, and often your tiredness will lift.

3) The third cause of some of these same symptoms is your level of sensitivity to energy, particularly negativity and electromagnetics. If you walk in a room and can immediately feel that it feels good to be there or that there is something not quite right in this room, then you are highly sensitive to energy. 

If you feel tired after spending time with people who are negative, always complaining, criticizing others, always telling you their problems, then you are sensitive to subtle energy.

If you feel tired or mentally foggy after spend time shopping at the mall, riding on a plane, or sitting in front of your computer, then it is highly likely that you are sensitive to electromagnetics.

The more you raise you vibration, consciousness, and awareness, the more refined and sensitive your sixth sense becomes. As that happens, you will become more aware and often more affected by negative energy and electromagnetics.

That is why I wear a BioElectric Shield every day. It keeps me and my energy field clear of this energy. I’m not tired from being using my cell phone or computer, and I don’t get thrown off by other people’s negativity.

I’ve been wearing a BioElectric Shield since the early 90’s.

Have a deLightful Day,

More Dowsing Pendulums

Pendulum Dowsing for Divine Direction with Takara

I spent countless hours at booths at the International New Age Trade Show in Denver, searching out what other dowsing pendulums are available on the market.

I was pretty disappointed by most of what I found.

The best way I can think of to describe most of the pendulums out there for dowsing is this: “They must have been designed for energetic neanderthals!”

Big, clunky, and in some cases downright ugly, or, cookie cutter, same old, same old, for the rest. Even my favorite pendulum designer from India had abandoned his outrageously fabulous and unique smaller designs for bigger, clunkier models.

Ick!

That’s how I felt about all of that.

Ick!

I’ll say it again.

Like all the energy healing tools I work with and create, most of the pendulums designs we offer are highly refined, simple, elegant, small, and highly responsive.

I’ll weigh some pendulums to give you a point of reference. The heaviest pendulum point that I own personally (not one of my designs) is 13 g / .4 oz. (overall weight 15 g / .5 oz. The points for some of my new designs are 3 g / the scale won’t even read the point in oz. (overall weight 7 g / .2 oz.).

Of course, I have a few that are heavier, but of significantly different materials and feel than the rest of what’s out there.

As you raise your level of consciousness and your personal frequency, you become more highly refined, more “tuned in” and sensitive to yourself, the energy around you, the people and places you encounter. And you don’t need big clunky energy tools that because of their weight can be easily dropped and broken.

You need something that has been lovingly created and energized with powerful healing frequencies. And that is exactly what you will find with the dowsing pendulum designs being offered here.

While away in Santa Fe and Denver, I acquired several semi-precious crystal beads and points, some amazing lapedolite egyptian cut pendulum points, lots of chain and many other new items for pendulum creation.

At the dowsing class I taught in Santa Fe, and at many of the other locations I visited, people were delighted to buy our new pendulum designs. Several people purchased more than one of the new pendulums I’m now offering. I’m confident you will enjoy them too!

Proof of Reincarnation

Recently on Facebook, someone posted this YouTube video about a very interesting reincarnation story. It’s a truly fascinating bit of video that was shown on FOX news.

Here’s the Link:

I hear about so many situations where the child is saying “I was this person. This is what I did. This is where I lived. My wife’s name was ___.” And since the parents don’t believe in the stuff and have no reference for it, they literally don’t know what to do. It freaks them out. They try to talk the kid out of saying all the stuff – sometimes using punishment. Which of course confuses the child.

In the wrong hands, certain religions or cults, the head person – whoever that may be – would say the child is possessed, which would lead to all sorts of horrible experiences. It’s amazing what people do in circumstances that cause them to be afraid. When, in reality, the child is only saying the truth.

It reminds me of a famous story about a little boy about 4 who had a brand new brother or sister. He kept insisting that he wanted to be in the room with the baby alone. Well, the parents didn’t know what to do with that. So they decided to let him be with the baby, but they had the room monitor on so they could hear. The little boy didn’t know the room monitor was on. Apparently, he went over to the infant, leaned down and whispered, “Help me remember. I’m forgetting who God is.”

Anyway, beautiful story.

We all forget the older we get. We all forget being connected, re-membering the truth about who God is, who we are, that we are a divine being having a human experience, that joy is our natural state of being, and that struggle and strife are human creations, that love heals everything and is the greatest force in the Universe.

Bula – Hello From Fiji

It’s noon on Saturday here in Fiji in the South Pacific. Wow – a great and adventurous trip so far!

We drove to D.C. on Monday. Did some last minute packing and shopping, had a fabulous Ethiopian meal.

Our flight headed out on Tuesday at 4:30 from Dulles. A 5-hour ride to L.A. We got to see the new Karate Kid movie. It was truly great. If you haven’t seen it, I think you will like it.

In L.A. we had a 5-hour layover. When I went to the counter to get our boarding passes to Fiji, I was told that without a return ticket or a ticket to somewhere else, they could not let us on the plane. Yikes! I had a picture of the boat we were boarding in Fiji as well as a letter from the captain, but that wasn’t good enough. After all the money I’d been spending on preparing for the trip, I didn’t have enough in any one account to purchase two full fares from Fiji to Syndey. So I had to call my mom in the middle of the night. It was around 11 East Coast time already. I said, what a horrible daughter I am. Wake your mom up in the middle of the night to ask for money. What great parents though, they bought the ticket and we were able to get our boarding passes. The ticket to Sydney is refundable.

The waiting area for the flight we were taking on Air Pacific had enough chairs to hold about 20 people. We couldn’t figure out how a really tiny plane was going to fly 10 hours without refueling. Turns out it’s just a small waiting area. They stuck us on buses and transported us to a big jumbo jet.

The flight was the worst I’ve ever taken. The plane was nice enough, but neither Jess nor I could sleep. By the time we took off it was already 2:30  a.m. East Coast time. Once on the plane, I had eye shades, ear plugs, neck pillows. We added the small pillow and blanket the airline provides. We should have been golden and gone right to sleep. But neither of us could. We never did sleep.

Finally, we arrived in Fiji where our sweet Fijian taxi guy picked us up at 5:30 a.m. and drove us to the Marina. What a gorgeous drive.

We boarded the Furthur and began the adventure here.

It’s taken a few days to catch up on sleep. But by now, we are good to go.

This morning I woke up at 5:30 a.m., got up before anyone else and headed to the top deck. I wrote for awhile on my new book, then photographed the sunrise over one of the Fiji islands. We are anchored off shore near a gorgeous marina where we had dinner yesterday.

During low tide, an island pops out of the sea. We took the dingy over and snorkeled this morning around the coral reefs. What cool fish. It was Jess’ first snorkel experience. He loved it.

Later he got to kayak for the first time.

Gotta go. The internet connection is very slow. So, no pictures or anything, even though I’ve already taken a couple hundred.

Hello to all our friends everywhere.

Until next time,

Takara and Jess

Calling Back Your Consciousness

In a previous issue of my free email newsletter, “Here’s To Your Magnificence,” I explained great ways to help your physical body deal with shifting energies and our changing times. It also included how to assist your body in handling the very high frequencies that come through if you channel information or energy – particularly working with the platinum ray and the need for additional trace minerals. (http://www.spiritofnature.org/SoNSpeaksIssue66.htm)

What I’m offering below is a topic that you will have to deal with at one time or another. I hope you find it useful.

Lately, have you found yourself feeling more tired and having trouble making decisions or having clarity of thought?

You are not alone.

There could be numerous explanations for that. Get out your pendulum, or use applied kinesiology, or whatever method you use to seek inner guidance and get Yes or No answers. Then ask yourself the following questions.

Do I have any noxious or disharmonious energies in my body or energy field?” If No, then continue below. If Yes, then do the Dolphin Spiral Clearing from Dancing with Dolphins. The ebook is free when you join the newsletter list.

Do I have any cords or energetic attachments that are causing me to lose clarity and feel tired?” If No, then continue below. If Yes, then dissolve the cords, heal the wounds, and do the adamantine particle exchange described in Freeway to Freedom. (http://www.DolphinEmpowerment.com/spiralingbook.htm)

Is all of my consciousness fully present in this physical reality?” If yes, then do whatever it takes to increase your physical energy. If No, then you are experiencing symptoms of becoming multi-dimensional. Your mind and part of your consciousness is here in this reality. Another part of you is off in another realm or dimension or time/space reality. You may be in many places simultaneously.

If you are curious about where your consciousness is, you can sit quietly in a meditative state and ask your Higher Self and Guides to show you where you are. And you might see, hear, or feel information about what the rest of you is doing. If you can’t do this yet, don’t worry about it.

If you find that you are having tiredness and clarity issues because you are going multi-dimensional, I feel it is important to ask the following question before you call all of your consciousness back.

Here is the question. “Is what I am doing in this other realm very important or critical?” If I get yes to that question, then I just leave my consciousness where it is and ask my Higher Self and guides to assist me with having more energy and clarity here now. If I get No, then I say “I want all of my consciousness fully present here now. Thanks.” And within minutes I’ll be back to “normal.”

These are crazy times. You are not alone. Legions of help are at your side twenty-four hours a day. But you do have to ask for their help. Nothing is too trivial. Can’t find your keys. Ask for help. Car won’t start. Ask for help. Having a rough day at work. Ask for help. Not feeling happy. Ask for help. And on and on and on.

Next time you are feeling spacey and unclear, do the techniques above and let me know about your experience.

Pendulum Dowsing Articles at Magnificent U

Whether you are new to dowsing, or an old pro, I have articles for you.

At Magnificent U, we will explore together the wonderful world of dowsing with a pendulum – from the basic fundamentals to highly advanced, specialized applications, and everything in between. We’ll talk about the tools and methodology of this truly amazing technology.

I made it a blog so you can participate, add, comment, practice, ask questions, and enhance your own experience and the practice of others. Sometimes I will post questions for you to dowse. Then we will share our answers – refining and improving our ability to ask the right questions, stay clear and centered, and look at things in a new light. It’s all about sharing, learning, and growing together. Let’s not forget to laugh.

My name is Takara and I’ll be your host. I’ve been pendulum dowsing for about 20 years for myself and on behalf of my clients. I’ve used everything from expensive pendulums I had shipped in from England to paperclips on a string.

I look forward to our time together,

Find Your Tribe, Like-Minded Friends, and Places Where You Belong

It's Time to Find Your Tribe of Like Minded Friends

“I’ll be offline for a few days … getting my Faerie on, hanging with zany brainiacs, enjoying the creative wizardry of cosplay and sci-fi/fantasy related gizmos and gadgets, seeing many dear friends and making some new ones.”

I posted those words on Facebook, which then led to the thought that created this article …

When I speak and have booths at New Age & holistic expos, I always look around at the other vendors and people walking the aisles and smile because I know, “these are my people” – meaning this is my tribe, people who are into similar things, and I enJOY being in their presence.

When I attend sci-fi fantasy cons, I also know that “these are my people” because I so completely fit in there too.

When I lead or attend women’s business networking meetings all dressed to impress I look around and know, “these are my people” because that is a place I completely understand and enJOY as well.

When I’m out in nature sitting next to a stream with birds flying overhead, squirrels, fox and other creatures milling about, and trees smiling down at me I know that “these are my people.”

And of course, when I’m at the beach and dolphins swim past, I always smile (often with a tear in my eye) feeling complete bliss knowing that “these are my people.”

The deeper your wisdom, the broader your interests, the more places you feel “at home” and like you belong there. Certain cities, states, and countries resonate with me more than others. Certain bends in a river, mountain peaks, and people speak to my soul as others simply cannot.

Never settle for friends or lovers who mistreat you, belittle or put you down, cause chaos, confusion, or self-doubt. If you don’t feel that anyone truly understands you, then you haven’t gone to the “right” places or done the “right” things ... yet.

Take a class, go to meetups, or travel to conventions. If things like that make you nervous, then invite someone else that you know to do it with you.

I’ll tell you a little secret, I’ve made more friends going alone than with others. I strike up conversations … it’s so easy. Sitting next to someone waiting for a lecture to start, I turn to them and say, “Where are you from?” And after that, I ask, “What do you do?” Is it so easy. Somewhere along the way I ask their name and if they have a business card. I always jot down notes about people on the back … to jog my memory.

Often when I’m attending a workshop and there is a lunch break, I look around the room for someone else there alone (who doesn’t seem creepy) and go over and ask if they would like to join me for lunch. Usually, they are highly surprised and deeply grateful. So we chat over lunch. I was at a 3-day retreat in San Francisco a few years ago and ate lunch with different people all 3 days. The restaurant at the hotel was not that big, so I didn’t just grab 1 person, I grabbed 3 to fill up a table for 4. So in the course of 3 days, I had great conversations with 9 new people and several others in the room. Some of them are still friends on Facebook and we’ve had some fairly deep conversations about things that matter – to me anyway.

Sometimes the universe throws you together. I was at Yogaville at a retreat with my dear friends Jonathan and Andi Goldman. Yogaville has lots of different lodging options. I sometimes go for the shared room. Wow have I met interesting people doing that. Anyway, the first year I went, the lady assigned to share a room with me was named Mary. We instantly “clicked” into friendship. She was attending the same workshop all weekend. We talked as we went back and forth from the room to the classroom. We hung out at lunch together. We’ve remained friends ever since.

My soul-family, what I call my “inner circle,” is scattered all over the world. I met each of them in some unique way and none of it was sitting on the couch watching television. O.K. that’s not exactly true, since one of them did actually show up at my house and become my dearest friend in the world. I’ll get to how that happened in a moment.

I’ve spent over 20 years meditating daily, dowsing, spending LOTS of time in nature, and doing other things that have helped me fine-tune my intuition. So I rarely just go to something. I am usually inspired from within to show up.

That’s not always the case, though. I was starting a business partnership with a friend a really long time ago and she insisted that I attend this business entrepreneur training in L.A. I met a lot of wonderful people there and several are still very dear friends. So that suggestion came from someone else. That’s not the only time a friend’s suggestion had me take a class or go to something where I met wonderful people.

Sometimes I go to things because I’m interested in a topic. Sometimes it’s because I felt “inspired” to go as I’ve mentioned. In the various places I’ve lived, many of the friendships I’ve developed were with other homeschool parents. Some of those I feel closest to were part of the homeschool co-op in Santa Fe that we created together. I still see them when I visit and talk to them on the phone, social media, and by email when I’m not there.

When I graduated from Virginia Tech with a degree in Industrial Engineering, I swore I’d never take another test as long as I live. So far, I’ve lived up to that promise. I have, however, taken many classes in many different things. A few include: taxes for entrepreneurs, image consulting (even advanced image consulting), interior design, public speaking, pottery (OMG how I love that), web design, design of experiements and advanced quality control (in my engineering days, I even taught this stuff), and more recently watercolor. I even had a $2,000 advanced course in Kaizen.

Because of my interest in energy healing and all things metaphysical, I’ve taken classes, done workshops, and attended retreats in everything from an 8-day spiritual (metaphysical) warrior training with Stuart Wilde in the mountains of New Mexico to numerology, Reiki, Chi Kung, TM, yoga, silent retreats, Feng Shui, numerous energy healing modalities, the Silva Method, the Alivening weekend (rebirthing), aromatherapy for holistic nurse practitioners, color healing, crystal healing, and LOTS and lots of shamanic training. There are many other topics.

Here’s the thing, though … I’m not a social butterfly. I’m not one of those people who simply must be out and about mingling with crowds to feel energized. Those people are called extroverts. I’m not one of them. I spend a great deal of time home alone in front of my computer. When I want to energize, I spend time in nature, read, or stream movies or tv.

My friend Misty is a social butterfly. She’s in many networking groups and has even started up her own. She never met a stranger and she meets new people all the time. Her smile is infectious and she is a joy to be around. I love going to things with Misty because she already knows practically everyone in the room.

What I do have a passion for is new input. I like meeting new people, going new places, and doing new things. I like exploring my world and I’m comfortable doing so.

I teach people how to consciously manifest the reality they desire. In fact, my new ecourse about that is one of my absolute best. When I sat down to record the video, so much information “came through” that it’s MUCH more than a class on manifestation. Anyway, I’m clear about the things I want in life and dear friends is one of them.

I came up with an affirmation probably 20 years ago that said something like, “I have interesting, zany, uplifting, successful, fun friends all over the world who are making a positive difference.” If you met the cast of characters that I call friend, you would say I have been wildly successful in manifesting just that. They live in different countries, some are ultra wealthy while others barely scrape by financially. Some you would consider “earth mamas” and others wear suits and ties. From a helicopter repair guy who lives in New Zealand to several friends who take people to swim with wild dolphins for a living, I’m deeply blessed to know these magnificent people and have the great honor of being their friend.

It didn’t happen because I wished for it to happen. Yes, I got clear about what I wanted. But I also took action. I showed up. I spoke to a stranger. I went to a new place. I did a new thing. And at first, that was a bit uncomfortable. But the payoff is often so big that there is no way I would let fear get in the way.

If you want to be, have, or experience something you don’t already have … then, as I always say, “You have to get comfortable being uncomfortable.” You have to stretch, grow, and become more than you are today.

Much love,

P.S. So how did I meet my best friend Millie? Well … she was sitting in a chair having her hair cut one day and suddenly distinctly heard the words, “you need a shaman.” She the beautician if she knew how to find one. The hair stylist said she thought there was one in Nambe and she gave her our number. We used to have a spiritual retreat in Nambe, NM and did medicine wheel, sweat lodge, and other sacred ceremonies, workshops, drumming circles, and other events there. So Millie literally showed up at my door and we’ve been best friends ever since.

Are You a Spiritual Warrior or a Metaphysical Wimp?

Spiritual Warrior

 

Our original plan was to be Spiritual Warriors.

We came from distant galaxies on a grand mission – to usher Planet Earth and all her inhabitants into the New Age. We held a beautiful vision of a golden age of love and light, where all beings from ants, to rocks, to humans, to lobsters would be honored for their gifts and for who they are.

We are, each of us, cocky rebels and rabel rousers. We actually thought it would be fun. Can you believe that? Deep inside we are each a bit like Hans Solo from Star Wars. We like to do things our own way. We hate joining anything and taking orders, advice, or instructions from others. And we are also like the Three Musketeers. We actually enjoy the fight and it never occurred to us that we wouldn’t win.

So what happened? Read more
