My name is Takara and I’ll be your host. I’ve been pendulum dowsing for over 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’ve created numerous pendulum designs and offer them in the Dancing Dolphin online store. I’ve created an online pendulum dowsing course and also teach it live in many locations throughout the U.S. and abroad.

Magnificent Nutrition for a Magnificent You

Takara spent the first 30 years of her life fighting a debilitating illness which left her immune system dysfunctional, 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, the Tao, and emotional healing.

She still eats Sunrider whole foods concentrates daily. She is delighted to offer these wonderful foods to you.

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 …
Spiritual Gifts & 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.

Practice Peace 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.

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 happier 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 … like a human pendulum for what is helpful or hurtful to the human body, mind, and spirit. I can literally feel, within my own body, how beneficial or detrimental various words and phrases are to the personal speaking them, how foods, herbs, and drugs affect the person taking them, and even how people they spend time with empower or disempower them.

As I shared in The Power of Words, what you place after the words, “I Am” are critical to health, happiness, and success.

If you desire flow, freedom, and a rise in vibration, then detrimental words like these simply must be eliminated.

How easy do you think it is for a “sorry individual” to experience freedom and flow, health and happiness?

I’m not saying to suddenly become rude or inconsiderate. What I’m saying is to be careful how you say it.

As my beloved teacher, Stuart Wilde, used to say, “Your word is law.” And it is. Every word you utter is a command to the subconscious mind about what you want in life.

In the beginning was The Word … I’m sure you’ve heard or seen that before.

Since you are a spark of Divinity having a human experience, your word is a powerful tool in your manifestation toolbox.

They say you should watch your thoughts. What you verbalize has infinitely more power than mere thought alone.

Improve Self Esteem Self Confidence

Back to the idea of your word is law. Stuart said, “never make promises.” Definitely never make idle promises. But, if you have to say you will or will not do something, if you say you will, then do. If for some reason you can’t, let people know and make it right.

Living in New Mexico, I had to learn the hard way about flowing with change and expectations.

Plans are constantly changing there. People can’t make it to various events they signed up for. There might be a family emergency, a flood (literally) preventing road crossings, or some health issue or another. You quickly learn to live fully in the moment without expectations of what the moment you are in is supposed to look like.

Learn to trust that if something is “supposed” to happen, it will. And if a certain person is supposed to be there, they will be. The more you move into living that way, the less your happiness depends on the behavior of others, or yourself.

When you can drop expectations, you are totally free.

Who you are is a magnificent being with unique gifts, skills, and talents.

The more you apologize, the more you are telling your subconscious mind that you are not enough, that you screwed up … again, that you let someone down … again. That is nonsense.

These are not the affirmations you want to be making to the world about what you want in your life.

Yes, if you make a promise, call and say something came up and you need to reschedule. But say, “I apologize,” or “sorry,” but never “I’m sorry.”

When you have reached Avatar status, and successfully healed all your own issues, then it is time to consider taking on issues outside self. Until then, I think that Jesus quote makes great sense: “Don’t try to remove the splinter from your brother’s eye until you’ve gotten rid of the plank from your own.” As long as you are running the three core human fears:

  1. fear you aren’t enough
  2. fear you are unloveable
  3. fear of abandonment

you will have damaged self-esteem and you need to actively work on improving it. Saying I’m sorry is counterproductive to that cause.

I can hear you saying, “but what about the phrase, ‘I Love You, I’m Sorry, Please Forgive Me, Thank You’ made famous by Dr. Joe Vitale?

Bless people and situations, absolutely, it is very empowering to you and them to do so. But those are not the best words to choose.

  • “I love you” – powerful words. That is a great thing to say to bless another or a situation. “I bless you” or “bless you” is another.
  • “I’m sorry” – don’t be. We’ve already discussed why. I go into it further in the other article I mentioned.
  • “Please forgive me” – for what? What did you do to feel the need to beg forgiveness and from whom? Who are you begging forgiveness of all day?
  • “Thank you” – another great thing to say. Any affirmation of gratitude is a great mantra to have.

So overall these statements negate one another internally. Thank heavens they end on a positive note.

It would be much better to leave off the two that are disempowering, particularly for anyone struggling with self-esteem issues.

If you have not already accomplished all your goals, then self-esteem – belief in self, belief on all levels that you deserve your desires, belief in your gifts, your magnificence, your own Divine – is definitely something you still need to work on.

We are all still working on these things. It is part of the lessons of planet earth.

On the path toward enlightenment, being empowered, learning to speak in an empowered way is part of the journey. Pay attention to your words and choose those that are empowering and will assist you in raising your self-confidence and self-esteem.

Just as I was completing this article, I came across this statement: “the late Dr. Emoto always said, ‘Love and Gratitude’ is the most beautiful energy and it improves immunity.” This is referring to the water molecule experiments of Dr. Masaru Emoto. So, just as I concluded that love and gratitude were the most empowering words, Dr. Emoto’s findings agree.

Have a deLightful day,
