Magnificent Nutrition for a more Magnificent You

Magnificent Nutrition for a Magnificent You

Takara spent most of her life fighting a debilitating illness which left her immune system practically inoperable, the need to sleep for up to 16 hours a day, catching and not being able to rid herself of every illness that came along, and having a hard time concentrating. She was introduced to Sunrider Foods in 1989 and the shift in her health was nothing short of miraculous. Prior to this, she had tried everything imaginable to regain her health. Within a few weeks of eating these foods, she was no longer requiring prescription medication just to get through the day. After a couple of years of eating these foods, she was in-line skating competitively, hiking in the desert in the middle of the summer, exhibiting incredible stamina, and having few colds or illnesses.

Realizing the incredible impact our lifestyle and emotional state have on our well-being, she began to study nutrition, the principles of Chinese medicine and the Tao, and emotional healing.

She still eats Sunrider foods daily. She is delighted to offer these wonderful foods to you. And is very pleased that the baby is being fed optimum nutrition while still in the womb.

Improve Health and Wellbeing by Drinking the Best Water Possible

Improve-Health-Water

Water comes in many forms and some are more beneficial than others.

Tap water is typically pretty harmful. The tap water at my house contains so much chlorine that when you turn on the faucet you can smell it. I don’t use it for anything! I even filter my shower water!

Brita, Pur, and other pitcher filtered waters are minimally better. They take out some things. Read more

Improve Health Through Body, Mind, Spirit Methods

Improve Health Through Body Mind Spirit Methods

Born with a problem immune system. My mom had a stillborn child a year before me, so in the fear that something might happen to me, every time I got the sniffles I was taken to the doctor and given antibiotics. I had massive allergies and caught absolutely everything going around and once I had it, I couldn’t get rid of it.

I had no idea cola was bad for you. So I was sort of the poster-girl for Coca-cola. Every time you saw me I had one in my hand. The corrosive nature of it cut the crap that ran down my throat all the time from the allergies. Bottom line, I had systemic candida and needed sometimes 16 hours a day of sleep to even function.

I did everything the doctor’s told me. They kept giving me more antibiotics and allergy medicines, which we now all know was only making things significantly worse instead of better.

One day I literally got down on my knees and asked for help and the words I heard was “Sunrider.” I’d recently met a woman who sold these herbal foods by a company with that name. So I got up off my knees, pulled out the brochures, read them cover to cover – it all made perfect sense. I called the woman and ordered the whole system. Within 2 weeks, I was off all my allergy medicine. Within a year or two I was competing in races as an in-line skater. I finally had enough to energy to exercise. I stopped catching everything and no longer needed to sleep so much. In fact, 6 to 7 hours became plenty.

Of course as soon as I started eating the Sunrider foods, I also started learning about what it takes to truly be healthy. I stopped ALL sugar, including fruit. So obviously the cola was the first to go. In fact, I didn’t eat sugar in any form for 8 years. I learned tons about what it takes to be healthy and I cut out all the crap. That all happened about 20 years ago. I’ve been avoiding sugar and antibiotics, tap water, harmful chemicals in all their forms all that time. I’m a distributor for Sunrider foods and am writing two books that talk about how to take care of the body in a healthy way.

Casting doubt is a highly effective tactic in manufacturing reasons to wage war and in lying to the public about health. Both have been going on for eons. When fear can be set aside for a moment, one can view forms of treatment with logic.There are tons of books out by licensed medical doctors talking about ways to become healthy and to heal. These are not the things taught in medical school, because the whole western medical model is based on treating symptoms, not finding the root cause of the issue.

When you get down to the root of it, all things have a body-mind-spirit cause and solution.

True healing requires addressing the physical imbalances with typically a radical shift in diet, often massive supplementation of one kind or another as well as specific treatments, psychological / emotional healing and COMPLETE elimination of stress, worry, and fear, and somehow finding the courage to believe that being healthy is possible. Some might call that faith – in the body’s ability to heal itself.

I’ve been involved in healing my own health issues and learning about, talking about, utilizing etc. alternative therapies, nutrition, etc. for over 20 years. I know many health professionals who specialize in the various methods and systems. I’ve seen a lot of things turn completely around. I’ve watched people with no energy whatsoever become completely well over time.

And for some weird reason I can actually look at a person’s face, and there is something about the color / energy that lets me know something is seriously wrong. I remember

Every problem, physical and otherwise, typically must be addressed on a physical, mental/emotional, and spiritual/energetic level to truly be solved. Fear plays a giant role in keeping people out of harmony, happiness, and health. Big pharma is a fear-inducing propaganda machine with billions of dollars at stake should the populace “wake up” and realize the body is a brilliant thing capable of healing itself given the right fuel and environment.

Responsibility, Personal Empowerment, Spiritual Growth

Responsibility Personal Empowerment Spiritual Growth

For those whose soul inspired them to take up a spiritual path, in addition to learning and healing, there is often a great deal of responsibility and unlearning that must occur.

People who are used to being able to “pass the buck” and blame something or someone else have to completely shift out of those bad habits. Becoming a true seeker of truth and enlightenment requires that a great deal of responsibility be taken and healing to occur on all levels.

As I’ve walked my own spiritual path with its many twists and turns … Read more

Judgment, Hatred, and Fear are Extremely Destructive!

JudgmentHatredDestructive1

Judgment, hatred, and fear cause issues between individuals and within a person. Holding onto those things actually causes disharmonydisease within the body.

This is what I know. I am an empath. When I “tune in” to a person or situation, I can literally feel what it is that they are feeling. I am a pasty white chick that doesn’t have to worry about being bullied or abused over skin color – be it black, brown, or yellow. The same goes for the gay community. The level of disrespect our non-white and non-strictly heterosexual brothers and sisters in this country are receiving is despicable and simply must stop. There is a fair amount of abuse happening to women as well. All of this is not O.K.
 
It is the nature of our culture to hang out with people like ourselves … it begins in junior high and continues from there. The kids form a clique and they all dress alike, use the same language, have their hair fixed the same, listen to the same music, watch the same shows, attend the same events, have the same beliefs about politics, religion, and pretty much everything else. That spills over into adulthood. Even though the nation is quite diverse and there are infinite choices, most people hang out with people very much like themselves.
 
That’s all fine and good until one group decides there is something wrong with another group, or worse, that this group is better than that one. Or, as so often happens, they take on a belief that every single person of a certain race, gender, sexual orientation, religion, etc. is ____ (you can fill in the blank). The blank often contains words like bad, evil, criminal, terrorist, etc. No matter what you put in the blank, any blanket statement about how groups of people are is rife with hatred, judgment, and distrust.
 
I have had the great good fortune of traveling the world and meeting all sorts of people. I have friends from many many different religions and every possible color of skin. I’ve also been observing humanity, psychology, what motivates people, how people act and why, for my entire life.
 
This is what I know. There are people who are genuinely kind, sweet, caring, giving, and trustworthy and there are people who are mean, hateful, judgmental, manipulative, and abusive. Most people fall somewhere in between. It doesn’t matter the race, the religion, the gender, the sexual orientation, or anything else.
 

Judging someone because of any of those things is a form of abuse.

To rise in consciousness and awareness, one must review every belief, every fear, every assumption about how life is, who we are, who other people are, and who or what God is.

It is time to rise …

Getting to Know Your Spiritual Gifts and Talents

Spiritual Gifts & Talents

We all have a unique gift, skill, or talent that we are here to express. Some even have spiritual gifts that they are to use to help others. The expression of these gifts and talents often bring joy, peace, healing, or understanding to the individual, and in some cases, other people.

For some, a spiritual gift might be songs that they hear in their head, or symbols or images they see in their mind’s eye. A clairaudient person might hear songs or words. A clairvoyant person might imagine a picture and draw or paint it. I have many friends who “receive” words and symbols.

I am deeply blessed to know … Read more

Photo Shoot with Andi & Jonathan Goldman in Virginia Beach

 

Andi Goldman, Takara, Jonathan Goldman with the Essence of Sound by Dancing Dolphin

Andi Goldman, Jonathan Goldman, and I had so much fun doing this photo shoot for my Essence of Sound oils that are infused with his sacred music.

We used to see one another in Denver quite often … since I lived in Santa Fe and they lived in Boulder. It was a great meeting place. For the last several years we’ve been hanging out in Yogaville and the lovely grounds there. This is the first time we got to see one another at the beach. It was so wonderful having dinner together with an ocean view. So much fun!

Right after I began making them, Jonathan and I did a photo shoot holding the oils many years ago. I decided it was time to get some updated images.

Andi is holding Tantra of Sound (the frequencies are based on a book she co-authored with Jonathan). Jonathan is holding the Chakra Kit that I developed from his Chakra Chants music as well as crystals, colors, and aromatherapy unique to each chakra.

You can also see that Andi is wearing one of my Dancing Dolphin Design jade bracelets. I hadn’t realized she had it on when we were doing the photo shoot. It was fun to see it afterwards.

All the images were taken on the grounds at A.R.E., Edgar Cayce’s Association for Research and Enlightenment. The bamboo forest made a great backdrop.

A Great Opportunity to Practice Peace and Non-Judgment

Practice Peace Non-Judgment
As spiritual beings having human experiences, we talk about rising in consciousness and awareness, becoming One with all things, going beyond fear, self doubt, shame, blame, and victimhood, and being in flow with the Universe. We say things like love one another, above all be kind, and live by the golden rule.
It is so bloody easy to live that way when you are off meditating on a mountaintop. But when you have to deal with everyday life and not easy to get along with people, that’s when you get to see how you really feel and how far you’ve come since deciding to take up a conscious spiritual path.
With the current political climate in the U.S. right now, every day offers an opportunity to practice what we say we believe. You are being inundated through social media, tv news, newspapers and magazines with endless  opportunities to move into anger, hatred, and judgment towards one or more political personalities, parties, or those who support them.
The Trump Train came to my little town in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia recently. It was the perfect opportunity to practice having a completely different perspective on all that was happening.

When I first heard the news that he would be speaking at Radford University the day before Super Tuesday, my initial reaction was to recoil. Maybe I could be out of town that day? That idea made me laugh.

The next thought was to make signs and go down there to protest. That idea didn’t feel right at all either.

That thought was quickly followed by a much more profound idea. Go into a much higher state of consciousness, become like a placid lake emotionally, beyond judgment, beyond opinion, beyond right and wrong, good and bad, into a true state of Divinity, and work with the energy. So I drove down to the RU campus a few days before the event. I circled the entire campus a few times in my car. I prayed, I spoke the Language of Light, I did a massive amount of energy clearing, and brought in peace, harmony, and all the other things that “came in” to say in the moment.

The day of the event, I stayed in a meditative trance under the gold-plated pyramid in my second office. It is the place where I make all the Dancing Dolphin Essences. It is a place full of sacred objects, crystals and shells. It feels like a sanctuary because so much healing energy and powerful transformational experiences happen there. I kept bringing in light to flood the space and all those in it. All of this was done in a complete state of peace.

When you are in a deep theta brainwave while meditating, you are beyond emotion, you have no expectations, you aren’t imposing your thoughts and beliefs on others. you are simply being peace. I practice that “state” quite often and can drop into it pretty much at will.

I heard a lot of crazy stories about things that happened on campus that day during and after Trump’s visit to my little town in the Blue Ridge.

I have no idea if the work I did will have any tangible effect in the 3rd dimensional world we live in. Perhaps it was just an exercise for me to go into a state of non-judgment and offer a loving healing energy to others and to “hold space” for the highest and best for all concerned.

Happiness is a choice. Judgment is a choice. Making others wrong is a choice. Playing the shame, blame, and victimhood game is a choice.

Choose wisely dear ones.

Fast (and free) Way to Raise Self Esteem

Raise Self Esteem

“I’m so sorry.”

“I’m sorry.”

“Please forgive me.”

Everywhere you go, you hear someone saying these words. Maybe it’s even you saying them.

Stop it immediately.

Please.

Especially if you are interested in manifesting your desires, improving your health, and being more happy in life. These words can destroy your self esteem. Or, if you are already suffering or struggling with low self esteem, they can take you even lower and deeper into that.

After twenty years of working with highly-refined energies, dowsing, meditation, and being an empath, I’ve become … Read more

Energy Healers, Shamans … And Knowing Who to Trust

Energy Healers Shsman

Energy Healers and Shaman

Most spiritual seekers have had an energy healing session of one form or another. Perhaps they have had some sort of color sound therapy, or seen a shaman or other medicine person for a soul retrieval or other process. They have probably had a Reiki session or even been trained in that modality. Typically those seeking energy healing assistance are looking to heal something physically or mentally/emotionally. Or perhaps they want to break through a pattern in which they feel stuck in one or more areas of life. 
I had a spiritual awakening back in 1993. Almost immediately I found books by Stuart Wilde who then became my first spiritual teacher. And I found Karen Schweitzer of the Body Mind Center in Reading, PA, who soon became not only a dear friend, but my go-to energy healer and spiritual adviser for many years. Week after week I went for Reiki sessions, her unique form of past life regression and many other sessions and experiences. I had years of physical and mental / emotional abuse and trauma/drama to heal. Karen helped me find inner peace, taught me numerous practical  techniques for handling stress, and recommended great classes and books. Practically every time I went home from a session with her, it was with a book she was loaning me to read or a stone or object that she had infused with healing energy for me to work with until next time. It was a beautiful time of exploring and involved a massive amounts of energy clearing. I feel so blessed to have found her.

Physical Pain and Entities

Up until the day I met Kaaren Shikiah Kaylor, I had never needed, or even thought of, having an energy session for physical pain. I so rarely have physical pain. But living in Santa Fe, New Mexico, the energies there brought up so many things, I often found myself dealing with phantom pain from past lives and had lots of encounters with disharmonious energy, vampires, energetic attachments, etc. Where there is light, there is also darkness.

We had just moved to Santa Fe a few weeks prior and I had been invited to have a booth at a Goddess Weekend in Madrid, NM. As I was setting up the booth, I suddenly began having excruciating back pain. I could hardly walk I was so uncomfortable. I was still setting up the booth when this woman, Shikiah, was doing the opening ceremony. When my then husband, Raven, came back to the booth after the ceremony, he said, “I scheduled you an appointment with Shikiah.” Hmmmm I am freaking picky about who I let work in my energy field. I had never laid eyes on her and yet, I was scheduled for a session. If it weren’t for the pain, I probably would have cancelled. I like to make my own appointments, thank you very much. hahaha

I walked down to the teepee where sessions were being held and went inside. It was so lovely and beautifully decorated in there. Shikiah and I instantly connected and have been dear friends ever since. I was sitting on a cushion and as I explained about the pain, she walked around behind me, grabbed whatever it was in my energy field and threw it off. Whatever it was had hold of me with such intensity that when it let go, I literally fell forward with great force and the pain was absolutely and totally gone, never to return. It was a truly strange experience and it let me know, quite dramatically, that entities are real. After that, whenever I had pain, Shikiah was the one I called on for help.

I Am an Energy Healer

I’m an energy healer, the kind naturally born with the gift. I’ve been called the Chalice of Divine Frequencies and many people come into center and balance just being in my presence or listening to my voice. I am an amplifier and clarifier and I am extremely intuitive. For the past twenty+ years I’ve been in Spirituality and “Energy Healing School” through various ways and means. It all began with Reiki … the doorway many walk through to enter the world of energy healing. It quickly expanded into something else entirely when the dolphin energy healers entered the picture and sort of took over my world. I say that laughingly and lovingly.
According to a channel in New Zealand, I work with “a very fine frequency . . . Feminine integrated energy.”
Hopefully by now you know the story of how I learned to meditate and as soon as I began meditating, dolphins started to spontaneously appear in my visions and dreams, bringing with them powerful energy healing frequencies and processes, which I was then able to transmit to others.

Whatever you are called to do as a true life purpose, those talents and gifts you came in to awaken, activate, fine-tune, and enhance, often require that you grow immensely in consciousness and awareness, healing layer upon layer of fear and limitation in order to step fully into that role. That’s what I’ve been up to for two decades … awakening, activating, fine-tuning, expanding, allowing, healing, growing, in a never ending spiral upward.

Like everyone, I’ve gotten stuck and required assistance to move forward on more than one occasion. I’ve developed friendships and business partnerships with people who showed up so I could fine-tune and hone my “bull shit” meter (pardon the language), my ability to read energy, my ability to sort between the truly, authentically, genuinely Light and the wolves in sheep’s clothing – those who appear light, use all the right words, appear to be intent on helping others, but are instead running hidden agendas and in some cases are energy manipulators or actual energy vampires. If you are going to work with energy, this is something you must master.

How to Tell the Dark from the Light

Sometimes developing the ability to tell the difference takes a bloody long time and the emotional damage created by getting involved with the wrong people can be devastating. Of course all of it is about the learning and there are never truly “wrong” people in your life. Everyone is there for you to learn and grow beyond whatever you are experiencing.
The more your heal your own issues, rise in consciousness and awareness, and have encounters with disharmonious, unkind, manipulative people, the easier it is to spot them next time. If you are on a spiritual path, these are part of the lessons one must learn. If you don’t heal the issues, you will continue to draw those same type of people until you have.

Manipulative Healers

Sadly, there are energy healers out there who do a disservice to others by telling them they have a particular problem, causing them to break down emotionally by pointing out a deep dark shadow issue, but fail to provide solutions. Those types of healers are definitely to be avoided. I find that behavior unkind and manipulative. It is about as irresponsible as someone doing energy healing who hasn’t fine-tuned their ability to see, feel, or hear what is happening in the unseen.
Talk about the blind leading the blind. Just as people you can see range from the Dalai Llama to serial killers, the unseen realms are teaming with everything from angels and Ascended Masters to downright scary entities that you really don’t want to mess with unless you have been trained to do so. Naivety and a few words of protection do not provide a safety net. 
I recently read a thread on social media where a guy said he went to a shaman. The shaman told him that a sorcerer had placed a curse on him, but since he didn’t have much money and this was an initial free consultation, he was left with knowledge about this horrible thing going on, but no solution.  
 
I jumped in to the conversation and agreed with someone else who commented about what you latch onto mentally causes a HUGE impact on your life experience. I almost never get readings and am extremely careful about who I let do any form of “healing” with me or do work on my energy field.
If what the shaman said was really there, they should have cleared it out completely, disconnected them from the person, and sealed up and protected their energy field, then taught them things to keep that going.
You have to take part in your own healing. You can’t be “fixed” entirely by another. A lot of it is belief and the release of fear.
Energetic attacks are real. But anyone talking about “bad” things that result in doubt and fear within a client, needs to also be giving them tools and advice about how to remedy the situation. Just planting seeds of doubt and fear is no good for anyone. It is, however, a great way to get repeat customers who need to be continuously “fixed.” Maybe that was not the shaman’s conscious intention, but it definitely could have been. As a side note, most true shaman would never call themselves that. As my dear teacher, Stuart Wilde, once said … If they call themselves a master, they aren’t.
The person went on to say that the healing was incomplete because it was initially a free intro. After discussing finances, the guy left depressed.
 
That sounds to me like a scam to get customers. It is, sadly, human nature to give power over to those who seem to know more than we do about various things – particularly when dealing with the unseen realms. When I say give power over, I mean believe, without any filters whatsoever, whatever they say.
And belief happens not only with the conscious mind, but the unconscious as well. You may think one thing and believe something else entirely. True healers, those born with the gift and who have spent years honing and fine-tuning it are rare.
When you have cleared, healed, and aligned yourself enough, then the energy and intention of others becomes more apparent. You can then, fairly easily, tell the energy level (meaning clarity and level of consciousness) of whomever you are going to for support.
Until then, you end up in situations like this person did. This is not a bad thing, it is a learning experience. The more difficult encounters you have had with energy and people running hidden agendas, the more you grow and evolve as a person. It’s like training wheels for your personal mastery.

Some Will Steal Your Power

Selo Black Crow, a Lakota Medicine Man, once looked me in the eye and said “Never go to a Medicine Man for healing because he will steal your power.” I was shocked to hear him say those words. But then I went to a female Native American friend and repeated what he said. She gave me this look that kind of said to me “you poor ignorant white girl” and said, “yes, everyone knows that.” Well I didn’t know it.
I am not at all saying that all Medicine Men, shaman, or energy healers will do these things. There are some extraordinary healers out there that can literally facilitate miracles. I’m just saying be careful and don’t assume just because they call themselves shaman or Reiki Master, and show you a laundry list of training certifications, that they are any different than other people. Some are nice. Some aren’t. It really is that simple.

How Can You Tell?

If you spend time with someone and afterwards you feel confusion, worry, exhaustion, or self doubt, that is a neon sign that you have been manipulated energetically and/or mentally. Clear the energy between you and spend less time with them if at all possible.

How often do you take the time to meditate, open the energy channels within the body, connect to the earth and your Higher Self?

These are actions I take every single day. I encourage you to do the same. As you continue the practice, you will become better at determining  people who are running harmonious empowering energy vs the opposite.

Have a glorious day,
