New Class: Spirit Guides and Past Lives

We are all divinely guided by and connected to an abundant source of energy. In this class we will discover how that energy manifests itself for us as guides (Angels, Ancestors, Animals etc), and how this manifestation has evolved with our soul since the beginning.
Your spirit guides are extensions of yourself. How can they help you on this part of your life journey? What parts of your soul’s journey need to be re-collected in order to have the experiences that create your best life? The answers lie within you, and we will begin to dig them out together.

Today’s Energy Forecast: 3/16/12 — Is this For You?

 

20120316-113511.jpg

Lately, I’m channeling way too much information from other dimensions to not share… These messages have been for myself and others. Who else? I’m not fully aware of that. But, the nature of my work and my beliefs revolves around you making your own decisions. So, if this touches you, send me a note… Or if you get a hint that it’s for someone else you know… Forward it to them.

Here Goes:

You have found your path. You can feel it deep within you. You are beginning to live out your true desires and make the right choices. It hasn’t been easy. It involves a paradigm shift and the releasing of old systems. But, that which you consider adversary to your cause is mere illusion. This is not an illusion fully created by you, but one that you make more real the more you ponder it. Do not engage in any activity that contradicts your path.

Your path has been set and you need to keep your eye on it. You know what you want. And, you will need to make some uncomfortable but brave decisions. These choices are fully supported emotionally, spiritually and financially by YOUR CREATOR.

Virtually nothing can stop you, even when you have doubts you will feel the nudge to take a step forward into the road less traveled. Because you have trusted for so long, all you have to do when you are afraid is to let go, and you will be carried.

You are being used in the most beautiful of ways by Source energy. Travel with your head held high for you are true. People may believe just the opposite of you, and you may believe that you need to please them. You only need to remain on your path. These distractions are an illusion that doesn’t serve our infinite oneness.

You are a mirror. Your beauty will allow others to see theirs when they are ready. Stay strong and keep going. The Ascended Masters walk by your side. The Master Zoser and the Master Jesus come through. This is not a time to play it small.

 

Energy Shifts Increase the Necessity for Eco Conscious Living Now

20111026-145340.jpg

I was never a deep follower of astrology. Mostly because I never found the time to absorb all of the math involved, and I’m not interested in the trendy horoscope stuff you find in the check-out lane next to the tabloids. I want the real deal. So, I waited until I was ready. I’m by no means an authority on the subject, but my reading is revealing how my personal summer of cleansing for the sake of consciousness boosting, and the global occurrences of the “Occupy” groups, assassinations of “terrorists, ” and the “elite energy’s” grappling to retain power over the people– has all been written in the stars.

While I certainly haven’t followed astrology, I’ve had my own recent astral travels and dreams through wormholes, into alternate dimensions and galaxies and have been made aware of the needed upcoming changes in our way of life here on earth. I’ve also been made aware though my communication with guides, in dreams as well as through my own reading and studying that we have plenty of help from nature and source energy (God, Goddess, Spirit, Angels, Guides, whoever/whatever you like to call it) during this transitional period. We have been evolving since we came into being, but these days are proving to be a rapid evolution of consciousness that opens up our awareness of our connection to our planet even more.

In order to incarnate here, it seems we decided to lose our true divine nature. Perhaps that was necessary to accomplish all of the technological advances throughout the centuries. After all, pain inspires humans. But all of that pain that has piled up over time has been sitting in our collective emotional bodies, awaiting for the right moment to be set free in healing. Could this have been set in the stars too?

Tonight’s a new moon in Scorpio which completely cosmically supports my own families personal efforts to cling to mama earth energy ( as we are Eco-fying our RV and offering ourselves to the world as healers). This energy is also completely supportive of the needed disconnects that had to happen for us this summer, as our path becomes clearer. Globally, we all need to shift our intentions and attention to the needs of our planet because she provides us with everything we need for survival, and as I am learning — so much more than that once we jump on board. The “negative” energies of blaming, judging and resisting are old patterns that we taught ourselves. Perhaps as survival mechanisms. A lot of those negative energies are surfacing just as parasites resurface when you go on a cleansing diet. It’s their final call for help.

What I think we really need to understand is that these negative energies are a valid part of us that feels it must fight to survive. We are energetically and cosmically supported, and will thrive if we learn to welcome in and help shift the intentions of that small percentage of ourselves. It is not your sister who is fighting you. It is you who is fighting you.

The world is set for growth and it says so everywhere. Personally, I’ve never been so sure that it’s okay to reveal my truest thoughts as I do now….and I have a recollection of my past lives. What we feel personally is a microcosm of what is going on across the planet. Centuries ago, groups like the Free Masons or Illuminati were formed so that people could freely share their ideas. Perhaps their original agendas were pure and only kept secret for their safety. Now, the threats to our safety from these groups who have created unhealthy restrictions on our food supply and money (to name a few) represents our own fear that we cannot control our own lives. I see these as old patterns that are dying. While they seem real, they do not represent the rich planet that we actually live on. Once we all come into our power by connecting to the earth, and our purpose here, the need for hidden negative agendas will fizzle away. And so will the need for secret societies.

Threats are really only as real as we make them. If we focus more on what we love rather than what we fear or hate, we will be gifted with more of what we love. I keep hearing the words of a farmer I met last year who said….’nothing good ever dies on God’s earth’. This planet will survive. And all that is not innately good for the earth will transition into something that is. To me that means that to some extent the recent upheavals are good for us. We are evolving and it will get as messy as it needs to be for us to wake up.

When you begin waking up to what life and you are really made from, you have no choice but to serve the planet and her people. You will find that these days it is much easier to purchase goods that harm our planet than those that support her. Most grocery stores, clothing stores, malls, etc. sell products that are made from toxic materials that harm our atmosphere and the people making them. Much of the money you spend on these products goes to make rich people richer so they can invest in secret money trades, chemicals and processes that further harm us all. Down the line you will notice that much of these items cannot be recycled or cause even more damage to the planet to recycle them. Food that lines your grocery shelves is devoid of nutrition yet full of things that can kill you. And worse yet, if you’re savvy you can see the conspiracies behind why our food is making us sick. The smartest of us know that even eating organic and shopping at a health food store doesn’t guarantee food safety and is sometimes simply another trick to take more of our money and punish us for our conscious consumerism. Despite all of this, or perhaps because of this, I see a huge light. A light that says to get even closer to the earth, dig deeper. Learn more. If the grocery store was perfect, what need would we have for growing our own foods?

The earth misses farmers who planted crops and tended to them. There is plenty more space on this earth that is still untainted, and even much that can be healed. Getting close to the ground and creating a garden says that you can control your food supply. The connection with the earth’s rhythm is so healthy for you that companies have successfully replicated it for sale and it’s used in healing cancer and autism (to name a few). Get your hands in the soil and you get that vibration running through you free of charge. In Traditional Chinese Medicine, working closely with plant life is considered very restorative to your jing ( like your essence…. Breath of life). It’s also helpful in restoring balance to your yin which is your structure- bones, blood etc. Your yin is your female energy. When you hear of the Divine Feminine, you are hearing about that collective feminine energy that we have forsaken for centuries. This energy is the core we are built on. And, because it has been lost for most of human existence here…. We are crumbling. All of the recent public outbursts that threaten our power and health are symbolic of how we a crumbling at our core. But, when this happens, it is important to know that rebirth is really the only option. Death does not exist so that is not an option. We are not truly threatened, but challenged to get closer and closer to the truest truth for us.

Getting closer and closer to nature has helped me keep balanced and feel safe and positive while I see others trembling in fear. Of course I believe in a creator, and guides and those energies have helped me. And they are also a part of nature. When you can delete from your life any energies that you come across which harm nature (for me this means chemical-laden foods and products, negative media, etc) and welcome time outdoors and in meditation,  you will see that you only crave more of the same and your awareness of your purpose also becomes much more clear.

Go stick your hands in some dirt, my friend. Take time to enjoy your planet. The rewards for taking care of her are beyond what I can describe. And, you are fully supported during your time of massive expansion.

Your Golden Energy Opportunity

Sri Swami Mayatitananda, Mother Maya, arms ope...
Image via Wikipedia

The time is now, and your golden opportunity is mine too. “We Are All One” isn’t equal to “we are all the same.” Instead, I like to think it refers to our collective consciousness and collective purpose. It means we come from the same source (maybe not the same place), and that TOGETHER, we form our own energy force. A healing one. When we incarnated here as humans, we  became cells within the earth. When we flow with our original energetic purpose, and the agreements that we incarnated with — that harmony supports our collective expansion.  We are here to expand. At the core we all want it.

Our Golden Opportunity is that all energies are properly aligned for our collective consciousness expansion. 

As we have grown with the Earth, She  has supported us through times of tremendous challenge. While I still don’t  support  war or hatred — I do see that we have developed some  very helpful  technologies as a result of what the majority of us would credit to our hard times.  As if war, segregation and mass killings are worth it for the sake of the kind of freedom we have in America ( so to speak).

In the reality that I see, we are born free. And, it is the denial of that divine source from where we all come that causes us to feel the need for survival and inspires fear, worry and war. Source energy is our true core. That is why we are all ONE. It’s human to forget our divine spark. Because, It’s that journey back to Self that we are meant to travel. It’s that journey back to self that inspires real growth. So, it is because we lost ourselves that we are here to find ourselves.

Along that journey to awakening, we are meant to face our beauty. And, that human in us who has forgotten his divine  nature often resists his/her reflection and creates a domino affect of more fear, doubt, worry and war.  On a personal level, you may feel stressed out, angry or exhausted during this time if you don’t know what to do with the beauty you see  beyond the mirror.  The only people we were ever really at war with was ourselves. As a whole, and over time — all of this forgetting left us almost completely unaware of that divine feminine healing energy that is available to us on this planet.

Funny  thing is that this journey to Self wasn’t meant to end in one lifetime. We built it in such a way that it would take lots of Time to complete.

From what I can recall and connect to, there was a time when we embraced our true nature — and we were whole. At this time there were technologies for communication, travel and education. But they were different. They were based in nature and energy. Our psychic abilities were active. We had riches. And, we had more upfront communication with others across the earth and the galaxy. So, when I say that we NOW have technologies that will help us in our expansion, I do not believe they are as powerful as the technologies we had in Atlantis or Lemuria or any ancient earth civilization. There was a time when power became priority and fear was used to control the masses so that a small chunk of us could have power.

For thousands more years than I can recall, my soul (just to name one) has been here with that same purpose of  assisting in this expansion. I was killed  and stifled each time, and now I’m back again.  My job isn’t over, but am told by my guides that many contracts are ending in this lifetime. I have the gift of remembering this. There were times when we had to be way more careful with what we say for “fear” of being killed by that small chunk of “power.” You may  have been here too. You may have been gaining information and strength to finally fulfill what you promised to fulfill. Think about it.

For the first time in our recorded and accepted history, we have social networking that links people with like thoughts. And loads of people are using that social networking to expand our consciousness. Because of Youtube, people like David Wilcock (who would probably not be allowed on mainstream media) can reach people and explain the “2012 Enigma” — a very well-researched account of the energetic alignment for our expansion. While mainstream media rejected the “Take Over wall Street”  peaceful protest– we get informed on the internet. Yes, there is still censorship. But, information and proof has leaked.  People are beginning to feel really good. We are beginning to really  feel our heart vibrations and we LIKE it.

As thousands if not millions of people heal themselves with natural means, we are threatened with gmo foods and crap like codex alimentarius  These threats come from that energy of the 1%. The Elite. The Afraid. They are power hungry because they are afraid. It’s that part of us that REALLY forgot who we are. They hang that fear over us. Collective consciousness  threatens that 1%. We know we are making progress because that 1% lower energy is changing. Collectively, we are getting to the heart.  Systems that we created to think for us and control  are crumbling because that divine feminine is Here Now. We have these lightworkers constantly reminding us of her existence within us.

In a vision recently, an Adept (Master Spirit Guide) showed me a zipper in the air. And he told me that we will walk through that and see all space and time. These kind of messages are being shared by many others out there, and evidence for this type of awakening has been shared since the times of Atlantis. Perhaps our souls were here then, placing the clues here for us to find now. My guides tell me that Now is the time we have waited for.

Our Golden Opportunity is to embrace that golden light that wants to fill us with BLISS. It means facing you and loving you.

“The greatest and only threat to ourselves is a loss of self and loss of our divinity” —
Kymatica” ( movie below)

I love this movie. I guess now is the time to share it with you too

No More “Guilty” Pleasures, I’ll Take Plain and Simple Regular Pleasure

The other night a friend and I laughed at how I knew all the words to some obscure Air Supply song. I’ll always have a soft spot in my heart for those tunes my younger bro and I sang  in front of the TV while watching “Solid Gold.” Up until 2 days ago, anything 1980’s or chocolate, or crocheted,  or anything resembling a cupcake were all guilty pleasures. Not anymore. The guilt is gone and I’m jammin with my Trader Joe’s gluten-free vegan ginger snaps– that I am eating sans guilt despite the sugar.

A lot of guilt goes into and comes out of changing to the “healthier” side of things, you know what I mean? But, the worst I’ve created for myself comes from what I decide I want to eat. Once  you dive into learning what goes into our food — from the ingredients to the energy, processing, and scams behind who is making money by poisoning us with chemicals, gmos, and godknowswhat, your higher self doesn’t want to go back. Healthy food makes you feel food. It tastes good. And us smart and savvy peeps have found ways to even make it cost less, prevent and heal illness and give us enough energy to stay feeling young for long.

Coming to Chicago to visit family and  make our first Bliss Tour stop has taught me that I’ve had to let go of a little bit of my  “healthy” eating. That is because ultimately, I have to eat. I have these ideas of what I am supposed to eat, what I want, what I need, what I crave and all of that. But, my experiences here have taught me just how hard it can be for the average person to make these healthy choices. Whole Foods Market is more full of processed and sugary foods, than it is of “whole foods.”  The Farmer’s Markets cost 3x as much as the one in Santa Monica, and the discount organic market has older produce that is ready for the trash.  Believe me, you can find good, organic and healthy options here. I know it. I used to live here. But, living in California spoiled with variety, convenience and price. I never had to shop at Whole Foods in California. We bought everything at the farmer’s markets.

I initially felt guilty for making choices to buy fruit and veggies that I knew were sprayed with chemicals. Our family has gotten  sick for the first time in years. We were exposed to mold. And, I originally blamed that on my poor meal planning and poor shopping decisions.

But, I think the guilt hurts more than the pesticides.  It’s proven  that not only are emotions connected to our physical health, but that our heart vibration is the strongest vibration  we emit. If our hearts are heavy with guilt, that has the potential to harm us even more than what we eat. 

Pleasure, on the other hand… pleasure has the power to raise your heart vibration and actually bring physical healing into your body. So, what if I eat my chemical-laden grapes with the utmost gratitude and pleasure? What if I just enjoy them today because they are what I have? What if I give gratitude for the experience that helped me better understand how  most people have to struggle to get healthy food? It’s gotta work.

So, that’s what I am doing now. It’s important to me  to eat the best I can because it does make me feel my best. But, if I live rigid-style how am I going to help anyone? Diets stink.  I’m glad I discovered my guilt because I realized I was living in a diet mentality. When  you are on a diet you have “forbidden’ foods. This is never going to work in reality.

Guilt is one of those complimentary emotions granted to the good-hearted, bleeding hearts. Believe it or not, it’s one of the hardest emotions to get a handle on. It took me forever to realize how selfish it is to be guilty. How that emotion strips us away from ourselves because it often involves pleasing others. The only real remedy for this is joy — doing whatever truly makes the real you happy.

 

The next time you feel a tinge of guilt coming from your mama, your spouse or your inner critic, try smacking that experience in the face with some pure happiness. Stop what you are doing. Stop right in the middle of doing it and focus your attention on the happy part of it.  Be thankful that you have that experience.

It may be natural to feel guilty. But, that doesn’t mean it always has to be so. You can change your story. You can find the Bliss in any moment. I’m erasing guilty feelings all day long with a simple thought, and sometimes a bite of cookie.

Rock on!

Inspired By Today: Jennifer Carr, “Today You are You”

In case you didn’t know, I’ve got rockin friends. I’m a complete amalgamation of the inspirations bestowed upon me by the amazing people I know.  I love that I’ve called these relationships and experience into my life. A blog by my  friend Tricia Huffman, the one and only “Joyologist” inspired me to create a category here where I share  just who inspires me, and how they do it. So that you too can feel the BLISS.

Today, I am inspired by someone who has taken parent activism and home grown love and acceptance to new levels. Jennifer Carr is raising to beauties in the big city, and she somehow makes time to write books, speak in public, yoga it up and, write one of the best blogs I’ve ever read. 

Jen has a gender diverse child, and blogs about the great awakenings gifted to her as part of understanding, advocating for  and loving her child. She is a real mom who digs yoga and sometimes get stressed or confused and she shares that. I can so relate to the perfectionist in her who wants to help and get it all right all the time.

Like Jen, I have a child  whose uniqueness turned me into an activist for children’s health. I think we are all blessed with the perfect families and children who will teach us the life lessons we need to learn. Often, when I was searching for how to handle my  “problems” whole healing Dougie from autism, I steered away from “autism” websites.  I wanted something more inspiring. Something that told me everything will truly be okay.  Jennifer Carr’s site is like that.

“Today You are You ” is the name of her site, and a quote from one of my favorite authors, Dr. Suess.  Being YOU is all you really can be. So, when you really embrace that and decide that you are amazing, you will discover the many gifts you have. These are gifts that the world needs.

I believe that the world is in dire need of gender acceptance, and Love and Bliss for all of those who decide to be who they feel they truly are instead of who society pre-determines them to be. The energy of the world is shifting. Old systems are dying. These children are our future and they are creating quite a bright future. It’s parents like Jen, who actively clear the way for our children who are making that future possible.

I don’t have a gender diverse child. I don’t deal with exactly the same things that Jen does. But, I am constantly finding myself inspired by her posts and even using them to help me in my life and parenting.  We truly are all ONE.WE all want love and acceptance. We all want to be ourselves.

Today You are You, for real. What can you do today to be the youest you? What do you need to do to sigh that beautiful breath of relief that comes with being true to yourself. Do it! I’m here with you.

It’s important to note here that Jennifer Carr’s website is not only inspirational, but informational as well. If you know someone who needs help with raising and advocating for their gender diverse child , please send them to Jen’s site.

Much Love,

Gina

 

 

Soul Searching and Finding Light

I am a being of light. I open my hands and I heal. I broadcast energy as I walk down the street or shop for my groceries. I shine from within and scream with intense joy, but it wasn’t always so.

I used to work long hours at jobs that created stress throughout my mind and body. I thank my guides and mentors every day for their direction, compassion and second chances.  Without them, I might still have ulcers and a poor attitude towards people and life.

I remember my friends and family telling me that I was overly negative. I had no clue what they were talking about. I thought that I was happy and successful. I was just a man doing what men do. I went to work and drilled myself into the ground to create a comfortable life for my family. This type of sacrificial consciousness is not very conscious.

When I was attuned to Reiki I had no clue what I was getting myself into. Funny thing is that my teacher knew that about me. I could see it in her eyes. It wasn’t disapproval that I felt, more like empathy for someone truly lost. I received my attunement with a knowing smirk that I only came to understand recently. Thank you!

I wish that I could transfer my understanding to the planet through a worldwide email that when read would make people illuminate. I wish that I could explain that the problems that we all face in our day to day occupations are all in our heads. Nobody is capable of making you sad, angry, happy or any other emotion.

You place yourself in these moods. If someone is making you mad then perhaps you need to do some soul searching.

The person who cuts you off in traffic and then flicks you off as a topper is having their own issues that brought them to that point. They are showing you what they are truly made of at that particular time. It is not a reflection of you. Think about it. If a child came up to you and said that you were out of your mind it simply would not be worth taking seriously, so why do we allow it to effect us coming from an adult? It might sting if that same child said that you were over weight or balding, but that sting is truly your own consciousness saying that you need to make some changes and haven’t yet. You would be coming down on yourself.

There is always an internal reason when your mood changes. People like to blame their emotions on others, but the only person who can make a change in you is you. It took me decades to really grasp this overly simple concept. You can’t change me and I cant change you. Nor should we crave that type of misguided relationship with each other.

You can live your life without the stress and demands of others. You are inherently free now and forever. Even if you were to be imprisoned or forced into another life you still are in control of your own spirit. You can soar above your constraints and feel the power associated with a truly liberated consciousness. Enjoy your life today and every day after this one to its top potential. Never be brought down for any reason.

Just remember that the more that you let go and accept that you are perfect just the way you are, the more you will get in return.

Namaste,

Doug

My Brave New World

I am starting a new world. Corporations and hierarchies don’t exist. We live with and for one another. We take care of our problems using the best solutions for the Collective One. We were only enforcing repressive rules yesterday as a means to pay the hierarchy and corporations, which were not making choices in the best interest of the people. We have outlawed that type of greed.

With a society that thinks only for the Collective, we have made it mandatory that our health concerns are addressed. Pharmaceutical suppliers are only making the healthiest options without worrying about pinching pennies and adding a neurotoxins to your bubble gum. Pharmaceuticals are in competition to create the most organic healing solutions for a conscious society. We love them for their commitment to us.

We use non-biased scientists and environmental conservationists to aid us in making correct choices on how we treat our Earth. Our politicians care more about the public then their own personal gain. We have our technology, but it is smarter for the body and spirit. Cell phones stop emitting toxic radiation. Lawns aren’t being sprayed with dangerous chemicals. We grow and produce things in a manner that is economically viable and effective for nourishment.

We have stopped trying to control Mother Nature, and are leaving her natural resources alone. It turns out that draining her of all of her nutrition and finding ways for it to go into the atmosphere wasn’t a great idea. The rain forests are growing back at an expeditious and unprecedented rate that is cleaning the air much sooner than anticipated. Soon we will be able to breathe fresh air again without concerning our immune functions.

Our neighbors are allowed to advocate in the streets again without cynicism. We are not only permitted to express our opinions, but we are encouraged to think for ourselves at all times. Doesn’t it make sense that an intelligent society made of innovative researchers and creative applicators would ensure health and a bright future for the One. Since the average man has the ability to talk safely about curing AIDS without worrying about upsetting poor medical options and big government, we have been spreading healing advice and practices for free across the globe.

We are rejoicing in the streets and getting closer to our friends and family, turning toward clean and renewable resources, and letting go of the ignorance that has been spoon fed to us since birth. It’s a beautiful world. Help me plant some trees and open up to the new system that breaks down old ineffective systems. The world is truly how we see it.

This is my new world. How would yours look.

Healing Earth’s autism: Our Ocean’s Eleven-Eleven Energy Offering

Good Morning Light Workers and Love Muffins. It’s May 1 — time for the magical celebration of energy  healing “Ocean’s Eleven-Eleven” to begin!  Ocean’s Eleven-Eleven is a virtual (from your home) Global, Energy Healing Collective. You can offer a prayer, a painting, a meal, a thought, a walk, or ANYTHING that comes form your heart in honor of this day. Our intention for today is to heal the core of our issues. I’m more excited than I can handle because my life has lined up so perfectly today to offer a very magical, heart-centered gift.

I’m a skeptic, perfectionist and careful chooser of dates, numbers, clients, books to read and the like. Good thing I’m a Pisces because I’m also the most easy going, accepting person I know too. So the type-A-ness really kinda balances out. So, when I chose to teach an autism Undone class today with Reiki for Special Needs families — I so carefully chose the dates and times. I so carefully chose the price. I even so carefully bought my train tickets for a specific date and time (yeah, I know) to impress the best energy I could upon this particular class.

When I disocvered that the class also falls on Beltaine (Beltane) — an ancient Gaelic celebration of purification that takes place at the midpoint between the spring equinox and the summer solstice, I  knew I was on to something good. We receive our energy from the sun and our atmosphere. When the sun, moon, planets, are in various positions it affects our own energy. The idea that ancient cultures have used this day to symbolize walking into a new light and letting go of the past really resonates with what we will be talking about today in class.

Today I Let Go of World-Wide autism for You and for Me

Some smart people will tell you that we are at epidemic rates of autism (autism spectrum disorder) among humans. But, ever since meeting my son again in this lifetime and experiencing his life with him, I have correlated his way of being with the ills and the wonders of nature and in particular our planet herself.

If Mama Earth  were given an expert evaluation I assure you that she’d come out with a label of ASD.  And, not JUST because these labels make money for the system who keeps us sick. But, because all of Mama Earth’s symptoms add up to a toxic overload that expresses itself in  the form of regressive development (bees becoming extinct, more animals being born with birth defects, loss of minerals in soil, loss of crops); inability to socialize appropriately for her age (Mama is at least 4 billion, and her cells (US) struggle to communicate), digestive and systemic organ malfunction (earth quakes, tornados, climate change).

Now, I’m not meaning to imply that these are all BAD things. They are Mama’s way of pushing out the toxins that she has been unknowingly injected with. Mama’s outward expression of war, planetary upheaval and confusion stems from her body’s need to push out toxins and renew herself, She is healing. She will survive with or without us. Her autism is just her message. It allows us to know what she needs. We can either give it to her or quite honestly — she can take it and sacrifice us. As her cells, we are quite adaptable to her toxicity. We can learn to live in an unhealthy environment. BUT, Mama knows best. She knows how it feels to be whole and she wants to get back to wholeness.

Her condition is not a mistake. It is just as it needs to be in order for her to move on to her next phase. When I met my son, and learned that he had autism , I understood that he came here to be the way he is so that people can learn what he and the earth need to heal.

Once I learned that, I no longer needed the word autism. And, I only use it here to help connect people who are affected by the label. But, today I let go of this autism label. I let go even more and make way for a new healed spirit to emerge from the earth and everyone on it. These days there probably isn’t one of us who does  not feel the residual energetic effects of our Mama Earth’s auto-immune disease. It’s real and we know it. But at the same time, we have the power to help one another transcend it. We are not our labels or our faults.

As a matter of fact, we are perfect. We simply forgot that. If we remembered our perfection and the light that we came from, I don’t think we’d want to stay here at this  rest-stop-potty-break planet.

Let go of all that ails you today (whatever you call it)

Please join us in giving of your heart’s expertise in honor of experiencing a mass shift in consciousness. Forget the problems and fill your day with light.

Today, my class is dedicated to this fantastic Beltane healing. We’ll be doing a specific activity (meditation, visualization and art project) infused with Reiki and more! Do tell… what is your gift?


Our autism Recovery Story

(article first published on rawmom.com July 2008 )

My son will be four in 13 days. And, two years ago, our own friends and family doubted he’d survive his many health challenges with so little scarring. He is Dougie. He is emerging through what the world is calling “autism.” And, he is by far the STRONGEST person I know.
The newborn Dougie was every parent’s dream. After a complicated pregnancy disrupted by a mis-diagnosed miscarriage, placenta previa, early contractions and dilation, candida skin eruptions, and ignorant remarks from a group of non supporters – I was blessed to have a healthy happy baby boy. I stared at him sleeping for the first three hours of his life.

In order to ensure that our boy’s health remained vibrant, his daddy and I employed the city’s most expensive pediatrician. I’m talking about one who charged $700 for a well visit with immunizations (after insurance, of course). Oh, how my heart sank when we couldn’t afford two of the recommended shots according to the recommended schedule!

But, our baby was sleeping through the night in his swing, sleeping through trips to the movies, friends’ parties, and car rides. The kid slept so much, my husband and I brought him on dates. My expensive pediatrician assured me, on one of our midnight-worry-calls, that all of this sleeping was a gift, and that I should revel in it. And, so I did.

And, when my dermatologist told me that the white rashes Dougie was getting were a direct reflection to the hormones in my breast milk — and that my baby was in fact suffering from ACNE, I weaned Dougie from mother’s milk. Colic began with dairy-based formula, but I never made the connection. Our E.P. (expensive pediatrician) assured me that the brand we selected was sooooo close to breast milk, and that I made the right choice. I didn’t want to poison my kid with my ruined milk, so I traded my happy sleeper for a rash-less night crier.
By the time he was ready for food he was in love with spinach, squash and bananas. We chose almond and rice milks over dairy and his tummy issues subsided. But, I regrettably kept him on formula for 14 months, because the E.P. made a case for the “unrivaled” calcium source. He was pooping about seven times a day, but at this point I knew nothing of the problem that symbolized.

I became more confident in my mommy skills as Dougie learned to walk, talk and ask for things he wanted. I knew that I wasn’t eating dairy myself. And I knew he didn’t need it either. We filled him with wholesome home cooked and raw organic foods. We made sure we chose quality food sources of fats, protein, and other essential nutrients. He craved bananas. We made sure that he never got processed foods, candy or typical un-natural kid food. And, yeah we experienced many upturned noses because of this. But the result was that my 2 year old never needed prescription meds.

And despite the life-sucking day jobs, threat of home foreclosure, getting disowned by some family members, and MY chronic ear infections, my husband and I were overjoyed at being parents.

My husband, Doug, brought Dougie to get his next round of shots while I was at work. I had an eerie feeling about it, but just couldn’t determine a good reason not to vaccinate. I just didn’t fully understand what we were doing to Dougie. And, that’s when fever and flu entered our lives.

I put on my Healer Helmet and got him better with magic elixirs of vitamins and herbs. My parents thought I was nuts.

But before I knew it, I was facing my own doctor and my own chest x-rays and blood tests that revealed I needed to rest. I had pneumonia and had apparently held it at bay for months with my natural therapies. My doctor was disgusted at the bottles of oil of oregano, colloidal silver and other goodies I brought to show him I was taking care of myself. I still didn’t fully “GET IT.”

Soon, I was being injected with various antibiotics that made it hard for me to hold my head up. My mom was taking care of Dougie. And, Dougie was in NEED of prescription meds for the first time in his life. Of course, the nurse comforted me with the fact that all kids get sick all the time, and antibiotics were simply a part of life.

I felt as though I failed him by not being there to cook his meals and make his “get better” tea. He was placed on 4 back to back rounds of antibiotics. And from Christmas Eve through mid January, he regressed into a dazed state of consciousness. He lost all of his language and had no emotional response to pain. He cried or screamed almost all the time, and refused to eat anything but pizza.

By January’s end, I picked up my head, opened my laptop, and confirmed to myself and to my best friend that Dougie had autism. At this time, my husband was too sensitive to hear the word because it held so many negative connotations for him. Dougie was so sick and his daddy was so scared. I longed for someone to scream at. Someone to talk to. But, at this point I wasn’t sad or guilty. I was determined to find a cure.
Our financial predicament left us shacking up in my brother-in-law’s basement for a few months. God bless them for not killing me as I embraced the weirdness of self-healing.

Doug and I are not those parents who took our child from doctor to doctor trying to figure out what happened. Not only could we not afford it, but our experience with doctors taught us that they (at least the ones we knew of) would not have an answer. I refused to take the money we could use for getting better and hand it over to a doctor, just to hear “I’m so sorry Mr. and Mrs. Bliss, your son has autism.” I can’t even imagine the dread those parents must feel when being sold the “no way out” approach to autism. Because we were broke, we were spared this. We never got a set of blinders or a list of therapies to help us cope.

I didn’t want to cope. I wanted to cure this. But, the autism battleground had been trudged by some dedicated people who were far more educated than me, and none of them could find a cure. I knew I had to do it differently. I knew I had to embrace Dougie’s gifts. I remember explaining this to a non-mom girlfriend who reassured me of the value of early interventions like psych drugs and speech therapies. Instead of killing her I dove inside my computer.

One half hour of research solidified the Candida question that kept popping up in my mind. We definitely had it. I had to cut sugar from our diets. A few clicks later I found a woman who lived in my state and had successfully recovered her son from autism. I sent her an email and she called me the next day. She gave me hope that I could reverse Dougie’s condition with diet. We talked for 2 hours and she referred me to the bedrokcommunity.org – who have been my backbone and best friends through this journey.

I was now coming to the deeper understanding of gut health as it relates to brain function. I introduced cultured vegetables and coconut kefir to Dougie’s diet, using a tablespoon to 4oz each day for a month – AND WE GOT EYE CONTACT BACK!! The cultured veggies helped his taste buds accept greens and gluten free grains – AND HE STARTED SAYING “THOMAS THOMAS” after his favorite train. He was getting physically stronger too, and so some more autistic symptoms began to surface. Dougie hand-flapped, licked the floor and the walls, toe-walked, used repetitive language, like “Thomas, Thomas,” and would smash his face into the floor or walls. He was mystified by wheels. But, he was becoming happier and showing it. He still wasn’t responding to his name. His behavior was very hard to handle for me, as I wanted to see more results.

Another month passed and I learned that trusting my gut meant going back to my spirituality. I prayed and meditated a lot. One moment I was blending green sludge for my son to drink and the next I was screaming in excitement and horror over the phone to my mom “I saw bugs in his poop.” Yeah, bugs. Weird stuff. And each time Dougie released something overly nasty in diaper… he gained more skills. The diet was working! But not enough for anyone to believe me.

That hurt.

My mom was so loving and my dad just kept his mouth shut. But everyone was whispering behind our backs…. wondering if the boy was getting enough protein or this or that other nutrient. And, I realized they were wearing blinders too. They too were duped by the “milk does a body good” mindset . My mom, who slaved over delicious home-cooked meals every day of my life, didn’t understand the gift that good food gives our bodies. No one understood me like the moms at the BEDROK community.
Their level of understanding goes beyond diet cures. They helped me realize that Dougie is unique. I could do Body Ecology the generic way and get some pretty great results. Or I could apply it to Dougie’s particular needs, and consider his toxins, and deficiencies — and fully recover him from autism.

We are definitely still learning. We have embraced our son as a unique being with very special talents. His spark shines brighter as we peel away the layers of damage. We no longer focus on curing him. He has a sickness that gets better each day, but it does not define him.
In time, we’ve learned to tweak his diet to address his needs. He has now adapted to a high raw and mostly vegan diet. Something he could’ve never handled in the beginning. He does get brain food like the essential fats of cod liver oil and coconut oil. He drinks about a quart of coconut kefir each day which balances out the good gut bacteria, fills him with minerals, and makes digestion of other foods a breeze. He drinks green smoothies each morning and loooves peas with apple cider vinegar. The kid craves spirulina now! What a gift!

By first focusing on his gut, we’ve prepared him to eat a wider variety of foods. As long as he gets his cultured foods, he can handle sweeter fruits, beans, and grains much better than before. In the last 2 months he went from speaking in two-word sentences to complex sentences.

We embrace each moment for what it can teach us.

We study poop, tongues and skin color. We rely on our instincts, our research and our friends who are in the same boat. To date, we have only done one test to confirm the presence of heavy metals from vaccines and environment.

My almost four year old drinks green, plays air guitar, and is beginning to read. What more could a mommy ask for. He IS my dream come true!
