The Evolution of Energy Medicine

First Takara took flower essence therapy to an entirely new alchemical level by infusing traditional flower essences with dolphin healing vibrations and sacred sound. The result of her proprietary process – Dancing Dolphin Essences.

All flower essences work at the physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual levels simultaneously. Dancing Dolphin Essences did that and much more. They assisted humans and animals to discover and heal the cause of issues and they did it primarily using a 5th dimensional loving vibration.

As Takara continues to grow and evolve, so does the technology and tools that she creates. She has developed an entirely new alchemy for infusing higher energy into the essences and she has now quantum leaped the energy elixirs into an entirely new level of evolvement. Dancing Dolphin Essences are now primarily 13th dimensional. They still provide powerful, safe, nurturing, loving energy. And now they also provide entirely new aspects, new insights, new illumination and understanding of “why” something is occurring and also how to resolve it.

Don’t take our word for it, try them for yourself. If you are dissatisfied, you get your full money back.

Letter to John Kerry about Children’s Healthcare

John Kerry sent me an email the other day requesting that I sign a petition in support of a bill he was trying to get through about healthcare for children. This was the gist of my response:

“I applaud Senator Kerry’s latest campaign to improve the health of children in American. However, going about it from a Western Medicine perspective is NOT the answer. We have all the doctors, hospitals, specialists, and pharmaceuticals in the world and the health of U.S. citizens continues to decline. And I’m talking about the ones who have health insurance.

I’ve personally been in all parts of the health care system including being a patient, a clerical assistant in a private medical practice, hospital admissions, and finally as a manager in pharmaceutical manufacturing. I was doing everything the medical profession told me to do for my own failing health, including taking medicine all day every day, and my health only continued to decline.

As an Industrial Engineer – who’s primary focus is to find the root cause of a problem – I realized that Western Medicine is based on completely wrong principles if the goal is a healthy society. Western Medical doctors are trained in the diagnosis and treatment of disease. That’s it. That is all they do and all they know – unless the individual doctor branches out and learns about wellness, nutrition, energy medicine, etc. on their own. They are not experts in wellness. To bring wellness to America requires a radical change in lifestyle, eating habits, and more time outdoors.

Do you realize that many highly educated people refuse to let their children be immunized? Why is that? One of the primary reasons is the link between Autism and childhood immunizations. Anyone who looks at the ingredients in the childhood immunization series would be horrified at what they contain. Why are we poisoning children with mercury in the form of Thimerisol? It’s poison. The other ingredients aren’t much better.

There are so many examples of the American lifestyle causing disease, I can’t possibly put it all into a simple email.

Doctors are a last resort, for emergencies. They are not for ongoing maintenance and well being.

Educate the public in how to take better care of themselvesTeach them how to communicate better with one another which would eliminate their primary cause of stress, which directly results in disease.

O.K., so it is a radical approach. But, its also the truth.”

Assistance or Interference

Here is a question we’d like for you to participate in answering.

When the earth is going through massive changes that directly affect humanity, such as earthquakes, tsunamis, volcanic activity, tornados, etc., is it our place to do “planetary healing” to shift, assist, or stop the process? Who gets to decide?

We are actively seeking your input in sharing ideas about this topic.

I mentioned in a recent newsletter that a good friend of mine had a dream about a tsunami about a week before the tsunami hit in the Indian ocean. She called me and we “tuned in” about what should be done if anything. We both got at the time that there was nothing to do. Although in dream time and even during waking consciousness, it was very obvious that part of our consciousness was off somewhere working really hard.

We didn’t take any type of action to stop the event. We didn’t pray, or visualize, or anything. Because we didn’t receive guidance to do so.

Many people were physically ill, particularly with nausea and vomiting, the day before, and the day of, the tsunami. Many of those same people are continuing to have dreams about other events that may or may not occur.

Are we to do anything? And what is appropriate to do?

A friend whose insight and intuition I highly respect indicated that he and some friends had recently done some planetary work to stabilize the earth.

I shared that with Raven and he brought up this question about is it our place to do so. I had already been having that discussion with other planetary healers.

My own beliefs about the topic are this:

  • If you are absolutely clear (with absolutely no fear and no resistence – and that is always a big question no matter who you are, how evolved you think you are, or where you feel the information is coming from) and you are guided to take a particular action, then I say take it.
  • Someone indicated that we were like mid-wives assisting the earth in this birthing process. Many believe she is birthing herself into a higher vibration or dimension. In respect to us in relation to the earth, I feel we are a bit like a fly on an elephant’s butt- A bit annoying, but pretty insignificant. If the earth is birthing anything, then her mid-wives are more likely to be beings like other planets, the sun, etc.
  • When Raven lost control of our jeep and we went careening off the side of a cliff, we were literally at that balance point – one more inch and we would have rolled. I visualized a giant beam of light coming right down through the center of the jeep like a steel beam and offering stability. It didn’t negatively effect the car, it just offered support. I think the people who did the stabilization exercise are doing the same thing. If the earth is birthing, then our prayers and “work” that helps stabilize or whatever is a bit like handing a woman in labor a pillow. It doesn’t stop the process, it may not even make a difference, but it is a way to assist, offer comfort, allow it to be an easier process.

I agree with you, in that our “Mother Earth” is yet to go through many changes…and of great necessity.not to seen as “bad” or “negative”. because in the long run, these are going to be great gifts… she needs to show humanity just what has been done to her…it is indeed a “wake up call”…and your absolutly right in that alot of us felt it physically the day before…and had dreams and visions as well…those who are empathic with “Our Earth Mother” felt something was up, even if we weren’t exactly sure of what that was…as the tears rolled down my face, and just would not stop, and I was sick to my stomach the whole day before…I had to excuse myself from family holiday festivities…then that evening, off working to help with those who were in transition due to the tsunami…i was totally exhausted..I believe in what you say to be true…Love is the answer and always has been….in these instances, i also believe that yes, we are handing a pillow, some help if we can…because everything is necessary, and for great change….towards Light,Love,Joy,Peace,Kindness……
In Light & Love,

My whole life (I am now 54) I am connected with everything and everybody. Therefore, in a way I felt never lonely,but in the same time, I paid the price. The day Tsunami showed her power it was my birthday. Days before I was already ill and at that moment, in the morning I felt such a rage against the oppressors of nature and humankind,I never felt before. I was trying to create a poem, because someone had asked me before to write down my thoughts, because that person felt that the weight in my heart was too much. It became an accusation towards my country, the hypocrisy, the economical exploration of all kinds of good initiatives and all kinds of natural gifts and properties of Mother Earth.
I was very shocked, but sent the poem. The other person stopped from that time any contact.
At that moment I was so down that I did not listen to any news on radio or television. Next day I heard from others what had taken place. For me my heart was as calm as white snow.And as a matter of fact it still is. From that moment I am meeting beautiful things and little by little all kinds of signs make clear to me why I had to go through all those difficult situations. I started some free web pages to get familiar with this medium and so I met this site. Forgive my grammar, English is not my mother-tongue.
With Love,

New Dancing Dolphin Gem Essences

I’ve known for a long time that I would be making a series of crystal and gem essences. I’ve also known that the stones would include emerald and ruby and a few others. But I have never known when or how the whole thing would transpire. That is until one day recently when one of my dear friends called and said she was guided to create a grid with crystals and gems. She was using sets of 6 or more physically and energetically matched stones and before she could set them up into the grid configuration. she was guided to invite me to make essences. She literally delivered them to my door. I love how this “allowing” bit works for manifesting.

They are extraordinary. All 18 essences were made during this powerful energy between the solar and lunar eclipses. I drank what remained of most of the Mother essences. I was energetically drunk for about 2 weeks. When I drank the Herkimer Diamond mother essence I thought I’d had a brain operation. The whole crown and 3rd eye areas were buzzing. There was stuff going on behind both ears. It was wild for several hours. They are all that powerful. I love all of them and I know you will too.

What is the Mission of Twin Flames?

This came in as an email question. The writer expressed noticing that twin flames were meeting all over the world and that she believed there was a grand plan happening.

Here are my thoughts:

I haven’t ever contemplated what you are noticing so I will just give you my first impression and personal experience after reading about it.

I only know of a hand full of twin flame relationships. My marriage seemed to be one at first, but apparently was not. I believe that true twin flames are an exact energetic match and have been together many times on and off planet. Every other relationship I am aware of – whether it be lovers, friends, employee and employer, etc. typically involves an energetic tug of war between the individuals and the other person represents a mirror for the individual. It is their opportunity to see what they believe subconsciously in order to make changes internally if they desire to cause changes in their outer reality.

Most NON twin-flame romantic relationships involve people seeking something outside themselves to fulfill their desire for happiness and wholeness. Of course wholeness must happen within the individual, so these relationships are less than optimal. We’ve all had them of course. They help us make decisions about what we do and don’t want in relationship.

Twin flames, on the other hand, play a different role with one another. The ones I know of involve people who have already healed most of their romantic relationship issues. They are people dedicated to their missions and their own spiritual unfoldment above all other things. They do not depend on the other to complete them. They are there as companions of heart and spirit. When one is going through a healing process, the other is always in a very clear, centered, peaceful place. One holds center while the other gets to wander way off center in order to heal. There is no judgment, only the loving allowance and support of the other. Having someone always there in loving support I believe allows for quantum shifts in consciousness. I believe it helps the person to step more fully into their true power and wisdom and recognize who they are and why they have come to this plane.

There is also a merging of consciousness and energy that continues even out of the bedroom. The two are truly one in many circumstances. How far this can go I have no idea.

Romantic love, savoring, honoring, and relishing the other continues to deepen over the years. Gratitude becomes a pervasive feeling. Perhaps if all twin flames can come to that place within themselves and then reverberate it out (where 2 or more are gathered) into their world, the energy of the planet will shift into one of more harmony, balance, gratitude, love, and joy.

Blessings,

Takara

Was it me that asked that question?? My answer would be to ascend and help other’s ascend. They might well be (part of) the holy fires that will cleanse the earth (me i am sure dealing with a lot of serpent souls, although i have just found that must be what they are).

Supposedly you spiral out in blue, the colour of electricity when reunited with your twin, and back to were you came from, back to the source, to Love, to God.

It sure felt very special, beyond space and time. Meeting him. Perhaps the meeting of the twin flames here on earth make us remember the real.

I feel there is something “contagious” about the twins and that they can speed up ascension in others.

In the real we are not seperated from our twin. Jesus said: don’t you know that in the Kingdom of Heaven man and woman are One?? God created us as One.

Than there was the dream of the seperation, caused by the devil. We got seperated from our twins to acquired knowledge of Good and Evil: Judgement and we fell from grace/paradise. This is the karma we are dealing with still, the original sin. Remember we were bought free by the blood of Jesus Christ.

To wake up from this dream we have to leave judgement aside so Paradise can be regained. In the real we will wake up and realise we were never seperated from our twin flames.

Being completely without judgement is easier said than done. Leave your ego-self, your life and pick up your cross. And follow the path of Jesus.

With help of the Violet Flame and prayer to Jesus Christ I have managed to clear a lot of karma. I am sooo ready for grace. I just cannot wait for the three knocks!! Because when Christ consiousness sets in I will be the way i want to be effortlessly and i will have found my way home.

Love and Light

Who is Jesus?

I was posed a question by email about my thoughts on Jesus and religion. He also was curious about why I claimed to be an Industrial Engineer but didn’t list more credentials than that and only used one name.

Here are my comments:

Hello Dear One:

Blessings to you for the insightful questions and what depths I had to reach within myself in order to find answers – for both of us.

I am an Industrial Engineer. Graduated with a Bachelor’s degree from Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University (Virginia Tech) in 1987 with the name Debbie Shelor. I’ve worked for Fortune 100 companies in that capacity, as well as front line supervision, upper management, etc. I became completely disillusioned with the Corporate World. I made a poor manager. I cared way too much about those who worked for me. The last company I worked for cared only about the bottom line – it was pharmaceuticals after all. I had to compromise myself and my beliefs every day in order to “fit in” and do what was expected of me. I lost my joy in that job. So I left.

Jesus – or the Christ – was a grand and wonderful healer/teacher/friend. He was the way shower – “The Teacher of Righteousness.” And according to Anna, Grandmother of Jesus (a book I totally love), that means right use of energy.

Many light workers work with the Christ energy in healing sessions, in our daily meditation practice, and in our workshops. He is the “guiding light” for many of us. There are numerous fabulous books that describe our relationship with him vs. what is taught in many churches.

Most of us aren’t disillusioned with Jesus. We are disillusioned with what most Christian religions have done to the “truth” – the dogma, the fear, the distortion, and the disempowerment. Of course 2000 years is a very long time. Regardless of what is written in the Bible and the Dead Sea Scrolls, how can any of us truly know who he was and what he was really about? We can only feel him within our own heart. And in the end, that personal relationship is all that matters. It is fact that in 325 A.D. most of the bible was completely distorted. Constantine – who I’ve read was one of the cruelest rulers to ever walk the earth – had his group of advisors rewrite the Bible. They took out all reference to reincarnation. They left out anything mystical, which includes The Gospel of Thomas for example. He is also the one who began waging war in the name of God. How distorted is that? Anyway, the Bible is not the “truth” that it could be. Even with all the distortion, I find the words in the bible about what Jesus spoke, the parables, etc. to be very good guiding advice. I personally try to live by the Golden Rule and I teach that to my son.

If you would like to understand more of the Jesus I know, here are a list of my favorite books on the topic:

Life and Teachings of the Masters of the Far East by Baird Spalding (I prefer the first 3 books)

The Jesus Code by John Randolph Price

(Click here to visit our bookstore where these books and many others are offered)

Many blessings,

Takara

We look forward to your comments. Please let us know who Jesus is to you.

Help for Hurricane Katrina

Below are various emails I’ve received about how you can make a difference for those affected. They include a call for housing from MoveOn, a free service with MCI, and a very compelling article by Michael Moore. My latest newsletter (http://www.spiritofnature.org/latestnews.htm) includes a very intriguing article by Dr. Emoto which I have reprinted with permission.

This came in from MoveOn. This email message has already generated over 150,000 homes for those in need:

Hurricane Katrina’s toll on communities, homes and lives has devastated the nation. Now victims must face the daunting question of where to go next—and we can help.

Tens of thousands of newly homeless families are being bused to a stadium in Houston, where they may wait for weeks or months. At least 80,000 are competing for area shelters, and countless more are in motels, cars, or wherever they can stay out of the elements. The Federal Emergency Management Agency and the Red Cross are scrambling to find shelter for the displaced.

This morning, we’ve launched an emergency national housing drive to connect your empty beds with hurricane victims who desperately need a place to wait out the storm. You can post your offer of housing (a spare room, extra bed, even a decent couch) and search for available housing online at:

http://www.hurricanehousing.org

Housing is most urgently needed within reasonable driving distance (about 300 miles) of the affected areas in the Southeast, especially New Orleans.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

MCI LAUNCHES TOLL FREE SERVICE TO REUNITE LOVED ONES IMPACTED BY HURRICANE KATRINA

To assist those displaced and separated from loved ones by the effects of Hurricane Katrina, MCI has introduced a simple, toll-free phone service to help those impacted by the storm communicate their conditions and whereabouts to family and friends by simply using their 10 digit home phone number as an identifier.

The service allows displaced people and those attempting to locate the missing to connect through a toll-free phone number. The caller can choose to either:

Register themselves by calling 1-877-HELP-KAT (1-877-435-7528) or

Locate someone who is missing by calling 1-866-601-FIND (1-866-601-3463).

Registration function:

Those impacted will be prompted for their home phone number, month, day and year of birth (for individual identification) and a callback number where they can be reached. The service will notify the caller if they are the first to register the number or if someone else has already done so. If others have registered the number, the earlier registrant?s month, day and year of birth as well as callback number will be replayed, giving the caller the option to connect automatically to them.

The registrant will also be told if someone has previously searched for their number and will give them that caller?s birth month, day and year in addition to callback information with an option to connect.

Even if those displaced do not have a callback number to be reached at, they should still call and register because it will give their loved ones the basic peace of mind that they are alive. Impacted persons will be able to update their registration information with callback numbers when they become known.

For any 10-digit primary home phone number, up to nine callback numbers and birth month, day and year can be registered to accommodate alternate contact numbers and multiple family members.

Locator function:

Caller is prompted for home phone number of lost one.

Lost one?s callback number and birth month, day and year are played back.

The caller can then automatically connect to the lost one?s callback number.

The service will also notify the caller if the number they searched for has not yet been registered and allow them to enter their birth month, day and year and callback number to be replayed when and if the missing person?s phone number is registered.

The service supports English, French and Spanish and is limited to U.S. geographic customers only. This service is available to everyone, not just MCI customers.

From Michael Moore:

Friends,

There is much to be said and done about the manmade annihilation of New Orleans, caused NOT by a hurricane but by the very specific decisions made by the Bush administration in the past four and a half years. Do not listen to anyone who says we can discuss all this later. No, we can’t. Our country is in an immediate state of vulnerability. More hurricanes, wars, and other disasters are on the way, and a lazy bunch of self-satisfied lunatics are still running the show.

So, in the next few days, I will write to you about what must be done about Bush and Co.

But today I want you to join with me in bypassing the colossally inept and incompetent Bush administration and get help DIRECTLY to the people of the New Orleans area — right now.

A lot of you have written me to ask what you can do. Many don’t know who to trust. Many want to do more than write a check. You are right to think that writing checks to relief agencies will not get water and aid to people in the next 48 hours. Checks will be needed later and can be written later.

I have a way, though, for each and every one of us to do something today that can affect people’s lives TODAY.

For the past few days I’ve been working with a group that, I guarantee you, will get direct aid to the people who need it most.

Cindy Sheehan, the brave woman who dared to challenge Mr. Bush at his summer home, has now sent her Camp Casey from in front of Bush’s ranch to the outskirts of New Orleans. The Veterans for Peace have taken all the equipment and staff of volunteers and set up camp in Covington, Louisiana, on the shores of Lake Pontchartrain. They are accepting materials and personally distributing them to those in need.

This is where we come in. We need to ship supplies to them immediately. Today they need the following:

Paper plates, paper towels, toilet paper, baby diapers, baby wipes, baby formula, Pedialyte, baby items in general, powder, lotion, handy wipes, sterile gloves, electrolytes, LARGE cans of veggies, school supplies, and anything else to lift people’s spirits.

You can ship these items by following the instructions on VFPRoadTrips.org. Or you can deliver them there in person. The roads to Covington are open. Here’s how to get there. You can drop them off or you can stay and participate (if you stay, you’ll be camping so bring your own tent and gear and mosquito spray).

If you can’t ship these items or go there in person, then go to VFPRoadTrips.org and make an immediate donation through PayPal. Camp Casey-Covington will have immediate access to this cash and can buy the items themselves from stores that are open in Louisiana (all donations to Veterans for Peace, are tax deductible).

Each day I will post up-to-the minute information as to what is needed and the progress Camp Casey is making. Please visit MichaelMoore.com often and do what you can to help.

Many other groups are also doing good work. MoveOn.org has set up a system for people to offer rooms in their homes to the survivors.

There is no time to waste. People are suffering and dying. Each of us can do something. There is no other alternative.

Thank you in advance for your help. Tomorrow, we will take care of the other work we need to do about the ideologically hamstrung incompetents in charge.

Yours,

Michael Moore

Holiday Gift Giving Should Be More Than a Visit To The Mall

At this time of year the malls are jammed with people and there is a santa on every corner. We are reminded to let those we love and care about know it. But that doesn’t have to be done by purchasing a gift.

Most people have more than enough “stuff.” And they are quickly running out of room to store all the “stuff” they have.

In this season of giving, let us look to those less fortunate. Instead of (or at least in addition to) the gifts you purchase for friends and family, send money where it can really make a difference.

There are starving children everywhere. There are people …

living with war, disease, and poverty where a little money can go a very long way. I think one of the greatest programs I’ve ever heard of gives a goat to a family in need. It provides them with much needed nutrition and allows them to sell the milk to earn an income. Such a tiny little thing can make a gigantic difference.

Our world is full of imbalance. If you are reading this, it means you know how to read and have access to a computer. You are one of the fortunate few. You are priviledged. You probably didn’t wake up hungry. You probably have a warm dry place to sleep. You most likely have indoor plumbing. And you very likely have a little extra cash that could be used in a good way.

This year, in addition to gifts, support organizations that you feel are making a positive difference in the world. You can visit http://www.networkforgood.org and learn about numerous organizations providing assistance in practically any area you feel is important.

If every town and every household in North America took the money they usually spend on fancy lights and electricity during the holiday season and gave that money to house and feed the homeless – even in their own cities – just think of the positive impact it would have.

How Do You Know When You’ve Found the Perfect Business Opportunity?

I’ve been in and out of the multi-level/network marketing business since 1990. That is a long enough history to determine quite a few things about the industry – what works and what doesn’t – especially for me. Unfortunately, many of the lessons were learned the hard way.

Why is the industry so alluring?

Because, it allows ordinary people to gain access to residual income and business ownership. They can add a nice part-time income, of if they have what it takes, they can become wealthy beyond their wildest dreams.

That chasing your big dreams bit is one of the things I don’t like about the industry. At practically every business opportunity meeting they parade around people that have made enough money in the business to have fancy houses and cars, travel to exotic locations, and of course they have giant smiles on their faces. That wild dream thing is unrealistic. Very very few people attain it. It doesn’t mean you can’t. It means they are implying that everyone will succeed that largely and that is flat out false advertising. A select few will. Most won’t.

As an aside, …

I’ve had the pleasure of having friends that are top producers in MLM. They live in a fabulous house. They have a new Lexus. They travel and enjoy the finer pleasures in life. And they eat, sleep, and breathe the business. All night and all day the phone rings. Two people on two separate phone lines talking to prospects and business builders all day every day. Countless meetings, often every night of the week, with prospects. They hold big meetings several nights a week in hotel conference rooms – that cost alot of money. They are selling the products and the dream. They do well. But what I’m trying to enlighten you about is it is alot of work. If you really want to shift your finances, you have to be willing to work at it. You have to talk to lots of people. And when you get a no, you just go on to the next person, because it is a numbers game.

I’ve watched the big players in various companies – the one’s who earn over a million – and they have things in common. They are very charismatic. They have a charm and a polish about ther look. They are exceedingly good sales people – whether they were originally in sales or just have great passion for their product. They have absolute commitment to the product, the company, and the dream. They refuse to give up and they refuse to stop. They are like warriors on a mission to accomplish their goals. They are highly driven and motivated. They have no self esteem or worthiness issues.

There is one big exception to the above profile of a winner. If a person was severaly ill, especially if they had something the doctors said could not be cured, and through using a particular product were able to “miraculously” heal, they will have a giant business. They tell their story and products get sold. Their family will tell the story and products get sold. People who they introduce into the business tell the story and products get sold. It happens alot in this industry.

I didn’t mean to dash your dreams. I was just trying to help you be more realistic. Plan on a nice part-time income. That is fairly easy to do if you follow my advice below. Once you have attained that, then go after the rest once you see what it will take.

The best way to earn a nice income in the business is to stack the odds in your favor.

There are fundamentals that must be considered before you even look at a particular company or business. Here are the things that I’ve learned are absolutely essential for you to succeed.

1. A truly great product that everyone repeatedly needs and is easily understood.

That is primary. Without that, you are doomed to failure.

Most products are good, few are exceptional. You need an exceptional product. One that can’t be purchased at the supermarket. Something that is far and above everything else your customers, and especially business builders, will find in the marketplace.

If you are selling something that is a one time purchase, then you have to continuously seek out new customers. Now you want to continue to market your product and grow your business. But the whole beauty of the industry, and how it is designed, is that you can really build your business in the beginning and then reap the rewards of residual income for years to come. That requires that people continue to purchase the product or products month after month after month. So it has to be something that they use every day – nutritional supplements; energy beverages; skin, hair, or bath products.

One of the most important things that I’ve learned the hard way is how vitally important it is that the product be easily understood. How a person will benefit needs to be readily understood with very minimal explanation required. I’ve been in more than one of these businesses where you had to practically earn a PhD in order to do well. The product was foreign to the mainstream American consumer and they had to be educated. The fundamental problem is that it takes too long to explain it to each new person. You have all this time and energy invested in this prospect and when you get a no, it is very frustrating. People give up quickly when that happens again and again.

This also happens if there are too many choices. You have to learn about all of them and recommend the right one to your prospect. If they become a business builder, then they too have to learn about each one in order to recommend the right one to their prospects. The fewer the products the better. And starting everyone with the same flagship product is key.

You want to be able to talk less than 5 minutes and hand someone a brochure and/or CD. Or you want to be able to simply give them a link to a website that explains everything for you. A person needs to “get” the benefit to them and how the product will do that in 15 minutes or less.

2. Solid company – great leadership, great customer service, great marketing materials.

I’ve made the mistake more than once of getting so excited about the product that I forgot to look at the viability of the company. And more than once the company has folded, or gotten into legal trouble, had a falling out between co-founders, or whatever. You can build a huge organization and that organization can be moving tons of product, but if the company folds, or changes their marketing plan “again” or whatever, you are the one who loses. A solid company is vital.

HINT: Inventors typically don’t make good company presidents. If the person who invented or developed the product is trying to handle the business, make sure they have the skills. Especially as the company grows, it can cause big problems. Salesmen also aren’t necessarily the best leaders. They are enthusiastic and great at convincing, but that doesn’t mean they have leadership or management skills. Running a rapidly growing company requires a unique set of skills. The people at the top need to be highly competent and committed to the company.

Are fabulous, easily understood, inexpensive marketing tools already in place and easily available to you? If they don’t already have slick brochures, walk away. No. Run.

Use the tools the company has had professionally created. They have already been reviewed, tested, and tweaked for the best response. Don’t reinvent the wheel. You’ll be wasting your time. You need to spend your time talking to new people. If you need to express your creative side, then use it to discover new creative ways to meet more people.

What support structures are in place? Can you call, email, visit a website, talk to your upline, go to a meeting and get the answers you need right now?

3. A solid, well thought out marketing plan.

They are all a bit different and warrant a good look. How many income streams can you have with the company? How often do they pay commissions? How big does your organization have to be, or how much volume has to be moving throughout your organization, to qualify for bonuses, or additional income streams?

And one of the most important considerations is:

4. How much will it cost you personally to get into it as a business and what will it cost you per month to earn your commission?

If it costs alot to start in the business, you will have fewer people who will agree to try it as a business. Growing the business and growing your downline will be harder.

I know way to many people who have ended up maxing out their credit cards to keep qualifying to earn their monthly check. Think about that. You are going into debt on the one hand to receive a little bit on the other. Make sure you can easily afford the monthly requirement or it will quickly eat you up financially. Also, the higher the monthly requirement is, the fewer business builders you will get because many people won’t be able to pay that each month. The higher the monthly requirement, the harder it will be to build your business and the more people who will drop out.

5. Affordability of the product.

How much does it cost? We will assume it is a great product. But how much does it cost to try or to get started? Even if the prospect can see the benefits, it the price is set too high, you will have a harder time selling it. You have to meet more people, tell the story more times, than you would if it was something less expensive.

O.K., so based on the above criteria, what are the companies I work with?

By far my favorite:


Sunrider International. Their foods literally changed my life. They are #28 worldwide for sales. Every product and program they offer is truly extraordinary and revolutionary. I drink their teas and use their products every single day.

The company and compensation plan are excellent. Outstanding marketing tools and support are in place. Regular commissions are paid monthly. Your own free website is in the works.

Also very good:

Xooma. The product is Xtreme X20, a water enhancement product. Every day you pop a little sachet (tea bag) into a bottle of water and drink it. The organic mineral supplement in the sachet changes the water structure so you will hydrate better. It contains over 70 trace minerals that you body uses to perform all its functions. It makes the body more alkaline.

Hydration, trace minerals, and alkalinization are fundamental to good health.

It is a highly consumable product. People drink water every day. It is easy to explain, and have them understand, the benefits.

The cost. You can try it and get into the business for $9.99 which includes shipping. And that gives you 12 days worth of product. (international is slightly higher)

The company and compensation plan fit the bill. Outstanding marketing tools and support are in place. Regular commissions are paid monthly. Fast start bonuses for new business builders you bring into the company are paid weekly.

Your monthly requirement: $25.00 and that includes shipping. (International is slightly higher) For that price you get a 30-day supply of the product which you will be more than happy to consume yourself. If you purchase more, you earn more from what your organization is selling.
