Manifesting, Law of Attraction, Creating Your Reality, and Being in Joy

Manifesting Law of Attraction Creating Your Reality

In my Manifestation Mastermind, I share many tools, techniques, guided meditations, and ways to heal inner issues in order to harness the Law of Attraction and create the reality you desire. 

Some people on a spiritual path go into a state of simply allowing, simply accepting whatever is and whatever comes without having any desires. There is tranquility and peace in acceptance and allowing. And as someone who was once under great stress in the corporate world, I can truly appreciate having joy and peace as the only goal.  Read more

Homeschool Parenting For Successful Open-Minded Kids

Homeschool Parenting for Successful Open-Minded Kids

Parenting isn’t easy. Homeschool parenting is even more of a challenge when the goal is to develop successful open-minded children and adults.

As a homeschool parent, I definitely take the “parent” thing much more seriously than some. I took the school’s responsibility completely out of the equation. It was both a terrifying and deeply humbling decision … Read more

How to Develop a Deep Nature Connection

People today have lost their nature connection. Instead of sitting on the earth, they now sit in a vehicle while stuck in traffic on the way to a building where they sit all day at a desk under artificial lights. 
I have never understood the mentality of abusing and mistreating others, animals, or the earth. Yet every day that goes on all over the globe. 
I cried for a week over the dead buffalo scene in … Dances with Wolves.
I believe strongly in the Golden Rule, “treat others the way you wish to be treated.” As I’ve stated many times, “others” for me include not just people, but animals, plants, the land itself. I’ve never been able to see color or species as a separator. I just see beautiful unique individuals all deserving of love and respect. Of course, I’ve had spontaneous past life memories of being native, African, and animal. Everyone on the planet seems to be “my people.”
I remember introducing my then in-laws to some of my native friends when I lived in Santa Fe. After spending time with them, my in-laws commented that they had never met anyone with the level of peace these people exhibited. They had that to say about me as well.
From my teaching (what I’ve received directly from Source through what I call Divine Revelation), we are here to develop and master 4 relationships. The relationship with:
1) self,
2) God (Creator, Great Spirit, the Divine Presence, etc.),
3) others (all others, not just other people), and
4) the earth.
Many people have lost all touch with the Earth and their nature connection. They also operate completely from their head and not their heart. It is a level of consciousness. Having a deep connection to the Divine requires that one develop a reverence for all of life, to develop a deep connection with nature and self, and come from a heart space rather than a purely intellectual one. It doesn’t mean you turn off your brain. It means you learn to get in tune with your feelings, your intuition, your connection with All That Is.
From that place, life flows differently. There is less chaos, confusion, and self-doubt and more love, grace, ease, and flow.
How to Develop a Deeper Connection to Nature:
  • hike (avoid places where there are lots of noisy people or motors disturbing the natural tranquility of nature),
  • sit on the earth or on a large bolder in silence and just feel and hear and see the beauty around you (even better if you sit on the earth inside a medicine wheel),
  • garden (organically of course), get your hands in the soil (no gloves) and feel the earth between your fingers,
  • go barefoot on the earth (never on ground that has been sprayed with pesticides and other harmful chemicals – never use toxic chemicals in your garden or anywhere else!),
  • place a bird feeder near a window and stop to watch the birds and other wildlife as often as possible,
  • kayak, canoe, raft, etc. (spend time on water without the distortion of motor noise),
  • anytime you see an animal, stop everything to watch it for awhile,
  • even indoors, listen to recorded nature sounds, fountains, or wind chimes,
  • begin to track the moon phases,
  • always make it a point to go out and gaze on the full moon,
  • spend a little time in the sun every day (never allow yourself to burn and avoid sunscreen if at all possible. That usually means you have to build up your time in the sun slowly day by day),
  • acknowledge the Spring and Fall Equinox, Summer and Winter Solstice (do something in nature – many people participate in drumming circles, sweat lodges, dancing, or sitting in silence in meditation, etc. on those days),
  • watch videos or documentaries that help you explore the various aspects of nature, and finally
  • join my Wild Dolphin Lovers group on Facebook to enjoy beautiful water, dolphin, and whale images, videos, and stories.
Connecting with nature is one of the 5 ways I recommend you develop personal mastery.

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
