How much stinkin’ thinkin’ have you been up to lately?

You know what I mean . . .

  • Complaining about the lemons the Universe seems to have sent to you recently,
  • Having an interaction with someone that didn’t go the way you were expecting and obsessing or gossiping about how “wrong” the other person is,
  • Getting all caught up in how you feel victimized by “the system” – whether that be government, your job, or something else,
  • Immediately jumping to conclusions about why someone said or did something that contains a negative opinion about the action or the person, or insists that it was evil forces or some diabolical scheme to keep you down,
  • Saying “I could never,” or “It will never happen,” or “that’s not how life works,” or some other statement that shuts down all the possibilities the Universe is sending your way,
  • Thinking, saying, or doing something that results in you feeling bad,
  • Getting angry or upset about what those people are saying about the politician, political party, religion, or other group you feel aligned with,
  • You get the idea.

Its not easy walking the high road. But it is required if you want to heal your pain, live in joy, have harmonious relationships, achieve your heart-felt desires, or experience enlightenment.

Most people live in struggle.

And then they complain about it . . .  

endlessly!

Focusing on what you don’t want only causes more of the same.  If you know anything about the Law of Attraction, you already know that.

Instead of treating the next little disaster in your life like a horrible “bad” thing, why not look at it for what it is – a lesson.  Perhaps you are in the middle of a lesson about learning to flow with life, forgiveness, being kind to others, overcoming fear, staying calm despite your circumstances, letting go of people or situations that disempower you, cause you confusion, regret, or stress.

There are a lot of lessons in the classroom called earth. Every moment of every day is there for you to see who you are and what you believe. Every person you encounter has been very strategically placed in your path for you to experience something. Each one is a gift – not a curse.

Life happens. Hiccups in plans happen. Relationship issues happen. People have bad days, they misinterpret the meaning behind your words, they often see life from their own perspective and it is usually not the same perspective that you hold.

You can blame something or someone for all the struggles in your life – or you can simply realize that life unfolds the way that it does – perfectly. You can perceive situations as being evil and dark. Or you can choose to accept what is and respond calmly to whatever shows up in your life.

I believe that all things happen for a reason. And I also believe that I am Divinely guided in every moment. I trust that when one door closes, another one will open. And the other one is always better than I could have figured out on my own. I try to look at unexpected hiccups in plans as opportunities. And I try to learn from them. What could I do differently next time? What did I learn about myself, someone else, or how life or business works by experiencing this?

The bigger your dreams, the more you have to change and walk the high road. I’m not talking about just embracing new concepts with your logical mind and trying to force new habits of behavior. I’m talking about fundamental permanent shifts physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. You also have to shift octaves vibrationally. If you were already the person you need to become in order to attain your desires, then those desires would already be realized.

There are a few caveats to what I just said – like Divine timing and how to know if a desire is in your highest and best interest, or whether it is simply your ego’s need for recognition, approval, or something else. We’ll save those for next time . . .

Have a deLightful day,

Takara

P.S. One of the fastest ways to get to the root of your issues and raise your vibration is a daily practice of deep meditation. Peering Through the Veil offers insight into numerous forms of meditation and how to make each meditation deeper and more profound.

If we look to nature for answers rather than the drug store, we can often find just what we need.


Several years ago our dog, Meisha, kept getting ear infections.  I took her to the veterinarian and she was given a prescription antibiotic.  Twenty days and two prescriptions later she still had the ear infection.

I began researching and found a natural approach to dealing with the ear infections.  It was really a yeast infection, or Candida, so I gave her a good probiotic each day and by the fourth day, no more ear infection! 

A few years later we welcomed a new puppy to our home.  Lola is a beautiful buff and white Cocker Spaniel and she weighed 3.8lbs when she came to live with us.  She cried a lot the first couple of days, so I took her to the veterinarian.  He told me that she had a urinary tract infection and gave her an antibiotic.  I choose not to give her the medicine, but instead I gave her chewable Vitamin C and ¼ of a children’s multivitamin (these came from a company I know and trust to have clean, safe vitamins.)  Within one day she was better!  I continued giving her the vitamins for two weeks, just to insure she had the antioxidants and nutrients she needed. 

Several years ago, Lola had fleas and we did not know how to get rid of them.  My husband and I purchased some dog flea shampoo from the local grocery store and read the long warning list.  It said to wear a mask and gloves.  It was not safe to breathe or touch your skin and yet we were supposed to put it directly on Lola’s fur and skin, really?  Of course we did not use the product, but I went in search of a safe way to get the fleas to leave Lola alone.  I found out a wonderful solution.  We gave Lola garlic tablets and fish oil capsules.  The fleas jumped right off her! 

One of my friends gives her dog alfalfa for arthritis and bad breath.  Alfalfa helps with inflammation and cleanses the liver, blood and kidneys.  In Arabic, alfalfa is defined as, “the father of all foods.”  I have heard of people giving it to pets for allergies as well. 

Another one of my friends works at an animal shelter, where they regularly accept sickly kittens.  She gives these kittens a liquid multivitamin in a dropper and nurses them to health.  It is less expensive than medication and it works better. 

These are just a few tips to try with your pets!

Who do you know with fibromyalgia?

What is it?

Mayo Clinic defines it this way, “Fibromyalgia is a disorder characterized by widespread musculoskeletal pain accompanied by fatigue, sleep, memory and mood issues. Researchers believe that fibromyalgia amplifies painful sensations by affecting the way your brain processes pain signals.  Symptoms sometimes begin after a physical trauma, surgery, infection or significant psychological stress. In other cases, symptoms gradually accumulate over time with no single triggering event.”

Women are much more likely to develop fibromyalgia than are men. Many people who have fibromyalgia also have tension headaches, temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders, irritable bowel syndrome, anxiety and depression.  While there is no cure for fibromyalgia, a variety of medications can help control symptoms.   Exercise, relaxation and stress-reduction measures also may help.”

I had fibromyalgia.  From 1997 to 2001, I was in persistent pain and the doctors could not give me a diagnosis.  My arms, wrists, hips and legs were constantly aching.  I wore braces on both my wrists for four years and slept with a pillow between my legs because the pain was unbearable if the weight of one leg rested on the other.  I kept the braces on all day and night, but I could never wrap them tight enough to make the pain go away.

The doctor ran many tests, trying to find the source of the pain in my right hip.  After months of physical therapy with no changes, he thought it could be bone cancer.  It was a great day when my doctor said, “It isn’t cancer.”  Only one problem … he did not have the answer to why I was in so much pain, every day on an ongoing basis.

I had seen numerous doctors (General Practitioner, Physical Therapist, Neurologist, ENT, Chiropractor, Ob-Gyn and Surgeon) and each offered an additional medication to help with the pain, though no one offered a solution to my problem.   I felt like they did not really believe me when I described all the   symptoms and how they would not go away.

In 2001, we were living in Pennsylvania and my new neighbor told me that she had gotten great results for her fibromyalgia symptoms by using nutritional supplements.  I was intrigued by this and researched everything I could about vitamins, minerals, natural whole foods, and purified water.  I learned that my diet was a huge part of my problem.  Here is a sample of my diet at the time:  No breakfast, diet drinks, few vegetables, few fruits and very little protein.

With the data I collected, I decided to make some changes in my diet and I kept a record of any changes I noticed.  At the beginning, I made two changes (1) I began each day with a protein shake and (2) I took high quality nutritional supplements.  Within two weeks I was able to take the wrist brace off my left arm and within a month I no longer needed the braces at all!

Then I decided to eliminate all medication.  With my doctor’s supervision, I was off all meds within four months.  It has been over eight years and I remain pain free!   Here is a sample of my diet now:  Protein shake for breakfast (puts the body in an alkaline base) high quality nutritional supplements, purified water and protein with each meal.

Many people I work with struggle with fibromyalgia and the biggest impact to improving one’s health is to clean up the diet.  When I began eating a diet more alkaline than acidic, my health dramatically improved.  Leafy green vegetables are a wonderful source of alkaline foods.  Many diseases love sugar  among other acidic foods and they thrive in that environment.  If you have fibromyalgia, I encourage you to reduce your sugar intake and see how your health improves.

Our body is perfectly designed to heal itself and we can find the things we need in nature.  By eating natural whole foods grown (not made of chemicals) we feed our body with the nutrients needed for optimal health.

To Your Good Health!

Why are children in the US on so many prescriptions drugs? There are literally millions of children who take medication for ADD/ADHD (Attention Deficit Disorder/Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder). Do all of them need medication?

I do not have that answer, but I will share a personal experience with you.

When our daughter, Callie was in fourth grade, her teachers, guidance counselor and assistance principal called a meeting with my husband and me. They had “observed” Callie on several occasions being fidgety and chatty in class. (According to the teachers’ comments on my elementary school report cards, I had the same issues!)


They strongly suggested we take her to the doctor and they explained that often medication was helpful for ADD. So, these educators were diagnosing and making a medical recommendation for our child? How does that work?

We did not take Callie to the doctor, but rather decided to look at a nutritional approach. Callie began taking nutritional supplements (a multivitamin and a B-Complex) with her breakfast and we saw a huge difference in her concentration level.

We did not share this information with the school, so when we went back a few weeks later for a follow up meeting, they assumed she had begun taking medication. Callie’s teachers for the morning classes reported she was extremely focused, but the teachers for the afternoon classes commented she still seemed distracted and that they had seen very little difference.

This was great!!!

Why?

The B vitamins are wonderful for concentration, but they are water soluble. It makes sense that she could concentrate better in the morning and not as well when the B vitamins were gone from her system in the afternoon.

We added some additional B vitamins to her diet and eight years later, she has never taken any of the ADD/ADHD medicines that could harm her liver, among many other side effects.

They are so many different aspects of ADD/ADHD, so what worked for Callie might not work for someone else. Many of my clients’ children have gotten wonderful results by eating a gluten free diet, taking nutritional supplements, drinking purified water, getting plenty of sleep, exercising and eliminating toxic cleaning products from their home.

What has worked for you or someone you know?

Are you in the 1% of American adults who gets all the nutrients you need from the food you eat?  If not, join the rest of us!  The Anarem Report, a government National Food Consumption Survey of over 21,500 individuals, reported that not one single person consumed 100% of the recommended daily value for the following studied nutrients:  Protein, Calcium, Iron, Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Thiamin, Riboflavin, Vitamin B-6, Vitamin B-12 and Magnesium.  This report came out several years ago, but I would guess if they did the same study today, the results would be similar.

Some of the nutrients we expect to be in our food are not there.  Why?  Nutrients are lost in a variety of ways such as:  shipping, pasteurization, canning, freezing and cooking.   The problem is your body still needs them.

A great analogy would be a car; a car needs gasoline, oil and other fluids to run properly.  If we put coffee in the gas tank, yes it is a liquid, but it is not what the car needs…same thing when we eat processed foods.  They are empty calorie foods and even though we feel full, our body still needs the missing nutrients.

Why would we believe there is no connection between what we eat and how our body functions???  Even if we eat a healthy diet, we might be missing some of the key nutrients our body needs. 100+ years ago, many people had farms and grew most of their food or they purchased fresh, local food.  This meant that people ate a variety of foods depending on what was in season.  In turn, they got many of the key nutrients on a regular basis.

If we are not getting all the nutrients our body needs from our food, adding nutritional supplements can support our diet.  But, “the buyer beware,” because not all vitamins are created equally.  When selecting vitamins, it is important to check the company and their products for safety and efficacy.  Look for a company who provides scientific date with quality testing.  Ask if the company can make available their clinical research studies and are they published in peer-reviewed journals.  Many vitamins contain synthetic ingredients, preservatives and they are made from chemicals rather than food.  Some others are made with a combination of products and can be unbalanced.  I would recommend vitamins made from whole foods that are cold pressed, so as not to cook out any of the nutrients.  This type of supplement will help when you need a little extra nutrition to support a busy lifestyle!

BioElectric Shield Sterling Silver with 14K Gold Tab Polished Finish

Who knew?

Who knew that spending time in front of your computer, or using a cell phone, flying on a plane, or even visiting the mall was hazardous to your health?

Electromagnetics are real and they affect you every day.  And if you are like me, you spend a great deal of time in front of a computer screen.

It zaps you. The electromagnetic radiation coming off the screen, from the fluorescent lights, buzzing out of the battery on your cell phone, is negativity affecting you all day every day. A whole host of new diseases is cropping up because of the amount of electromagnetic “noise” everywhere in modern society.

Tiredness and a poor immune system are just two of the symptoms. There are tons of others.

A recent medical study indicates that kids with cell phones are several times more likely to develop brain tumors than their peers who don’t use a cell phone. And it seems that its worse the younger the child.

Some people are highly sensitive to it and literally feel like they are being burned when they hold a cell phone or sit in front of a computer screen. Others are simply worn out at the end of the day after being in front of a computer screen or under fluorescent lights.

I’m sure you’ve heard that stress is bad. Well electromagnetic radiation has your body under stress all day. And fighting it is exhausting.

Luckily, thankfully, there are ways to shield yourself from this attack.

 

Dr. Wayne Dyer endorsing the BioElectric Shield

 

One of the best methods for electromagnetic shielding that I’ve found is the BioElectric Shield.

Back in the day, when I was an engineer working in a factory, surrounded by computers and other electronics, fluorescent lights and such, it was all I could do to get through the day. Then I heard about the BioElectric Shield.

I had tried other products on the market, but never could tell that they were doing anything.

I will never forget the day my BioElectric Shield arrived. I put it on and instantly felt all my muscle relax. It was like for the first time – ever – I wasn’t tense. My body had been trying to fight off the attack of the electromagnetic radiation for years. And, I wasn’t tired at the end of the day. Now that was something new. That was back in the mid-1990’s.

I’ve been wearing a BioElectric Shield ever since. I started with a sterling silver with brass tabs. I eventually upgraded to sterling silver with gold tabs – which my former husband managed to loose somehow. I’m now wearing an all-white gold shield. I would never sit in front of a computer, talk on a cell phone, or travel without one.

To find out more and to order, visit The BioElectric Shield Store at Dancing Dolphin.

Have a delightful day,

Takara
