Bliss Tour Summer 2012: Come See Us in Chicago, Cleveland,North Carolina, California, Mexico and More!

20120616-013814.jpg

We’ve spent the last 5 months touring the west coastline of Mexico, and really healing up after some challenges last year. Doug is completely free of seizure meds and hasn’t had a seizure in well over 2 years! We’ve met new and lasting friends, learned so much about the value of family and our beautiful planet’s gifts, and we’ve taught classes and given healing sessions in some pretty magical spaces. Unschooling is the bomb. Dougie is uncovering his true abilities, and it’s amazing to witness and experience with him.

So, we’re ready to Bring the BLISS to YOU!

Do you long for MORE ENLIGHTENMENT?

Do you want to be MORE in-tune with your body?

Would you like to reach your ideal weight and feel great?

Would you like to feel SOURCE ENERGY COURSING through your VEINS?

Whatever you’ve been wanting to experience– We’ve got something to LIGHT Your Path!

Each Day we help people from across the world find their BLISS. Our clients have overcome everything from autism to debt, from cancer to personal & professional relationship slumps — and so much more.

We have a DREAM to create a New BLISS HEALING MOBILE where we can travel the world and bring our services right to the doorsteps of those who desire. ( if you’ve been following us, you know that our first House on Wheels didn’t make he trip, Bless Her Heart). I can just imagine finally hugging in-person some of the lovelies who I’m BLESSED to work with from a distance every day! It’s already happening! And we just want more. Bliss is addictive like that.

So, we decided to go ahead with our tour even before the new House on Wheels comes into fruition! Why wait? We’re going Eco-Style — which means we’ll be taking public and mass transit whenever possible. We’ve got our bus passes and our plan to Be the Change!

We hope you will come out and see us or even help us host an event in your town!

We begin in Chicago on July 14-15 with some high vibe Reiki Certification Classes, and then we travel east, south and west!

So, if you live in, around or between these beautiful places and want to arrange a gathering in your space, let us know.

The first round of travel through the US will culminate with a week-long Reiki Retreat (All Level Certifications) in a beautiful energy vortex town called Sayulita, Mexico in late September.

Hello Love Buckets!

It’s really spring now isn’t it? So, now I can officially tell you that I’ve been sportin’ short dresses and cool shades for MONTHS now– since our Tour has led us SOUTH to the sunshine.

We spent the past 6 weeks living in a palapa-roofed tree house with chickens and roosters squawking outside the un-windowed holes in the walls. It was hot and sunny outside, and the boys and I went cruising, parasailing, ocean-wading, sand castle building, rock climbing, horseback riding and lots of hugging, kissing, homeschooling and relaxing.

Now, we’re excited to take our show farther south for some pyramid adventures, cave trails, mining and more connecting with nature. All of this has been made possible because of our pact to remain true to our ideals and live the most sustainable life we can. We are able to Thrive by sharing the best of ourselves, and we couldn’t be more grateful.

Life has shown us countless opportunities to either stand in our power and keep going on our path, or turn around and get swallowed In the muck. Wow! What a simply amazing existence!

So, we need to share more!

It’s 2012 and I believe it’s the year we really hone in our our psychic powers. Hence, all of my blogs about the topic.

So, we want to make more of our services available to you in easier fashion. There will be some new and improved services. And some of our prices are going up. Any price increases will take place in April 1, so you have time to schedule sessions at the previous prices. As long as you schedule before April 1, you can have our old prices.

New Services:

Email intuitive Readings: Just connect with me and let me know that you have something in your life that you’d like to work on, and I will tune in to you and relay the messages that comes to me. I’ll email it all to you in a beautiful, easy to read message. You needn’t share any details with me regarding what you are looking to learn. I can tap into your higher self, and retrieve information without much from you besides your desire. You also receive a complimentary Reiki Healing Attunement with this service if you like.

$33

Intro Sessions to Psychic Skool

Choose a beginner’s level course that explains the foundation of your unique psychic-ness and helps you feel it, or for more advanced topics– choose to work on one Psychic Skool lesson such as divination tools, chakra cleansing, Astra travel, etc. It’s up to you. Sessions last about an hour.

$133.

What is a Medical Intuitive and How Do You Do Distance Healing? Your Questions Answered

20120321-104002.jpg These are great questions that I often receive, so I thought it would be best to share them with all of you.

Q: What is a Medical Intuitive?

A: A Medical Intuitive is someone who has the intuitive ability to strongly sense the subtle energies around people and/ or animals, and understand how they relate to health.The first person who I know of to use the term is healer, Dr. Caroline Myss. Her book “Anatomy of Spirit” mentions her first encounters with this ability, and breaks it down using examples from every major religion– and so much more!

A medical intuitive can “tune in” to you and your body (only if you are willing), and detect things like food sensitivities, illness and emotions — and help you relate them to your spiritual path, and find relief where needed. By nature, intuitive work is done by sensing vibrations. That means that at any given moment your body will be pulsing out vibrations of thought, emotion, well-being etc. And a medical intuitive will be able to differentiate between these in his/her own way. It is very common for a medial intuitive or intuitive healer to scan all of your body and energy field around your body to sense for any blockages that are upsetting the flow of your true health. They will scan for physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual connections to the information they are receiving from you so that they can give you the fullest picture possible. An intuitive will only be able to give you the information that can be sensed at the time. We often send out the signals for what we need at the present moment so this is perfect.When you chose a medical intuitive, you are probably choosing the best one for your needs because these relationships have divine ways of manifesting.

Some medical initiatives may get their answers in the form of words, pictures, sounds, colors etc. And, the deeper they know themselves and their abilities, the better they can explain to you what this all means for you. You will find medical intuitives who specialize in a variety of areas. Many of my intuitive gifts have to do with understanding how nutrition and food effects us. I also quite easily sense colors, emotions, temperatures, and can see the organs communicating with one another. I understand how to explain these things that I see hear and feel to my clients so that they can make improvements they want to make. Some medical intuitives may describe the same condition differently, but the ultimate benefit of their work is to help you get to the core of your illness or problem and solve it naturally for lasting results. They see the whole picture. I’ve been doing medical intuitive work since I began helping people heal about 5 years ago. That means that I’ve been able to pinpoint exact foods that would help people get well, or exact reasons why they’d been unable to conceive etc. But, I only recently started using the term “medical intuitive” because it kept showing up in my life.

After 5 years doing this work, I can tell you that it has gotten much better and easier for me with time. Just as a medical doctor would better be able to diagnose pneumonia after having worked in the field for some time, I too have noticed patterns. So, medial intuitives often have researched into the patterns of illness that they see in order it inform you with documentation to support their discoveries. This is not always the case though, every healer has their own unique way of working. And, in cases where pure spiritual work is needed, someone like me might revert to a more ancient way of providing healing to a client. If you think you are a medical Intuitive, you probably are. Those of us who have this type of calling can feel it within us.

Let me know if you want to learn more about honing in on your skills. If you are thinking of working with a medical intuitive, this is great for those with really open minds who accept the energetic and spiritual foundations for illness. Before choosing someone to work with, take some time to think about what you desire out of a session. Decide if you want to work in person or by phone. I have great results with distance clients. But, you will find what works best for you by choosing someone you can understand and easily communicate with.

Q: How Do You Do Distance Healing?

A: Distance healing has been being performed since the beginning of time…. So, I have my ways, but there are many other very valid ways. I use Reiki, a form of energy healing where I tap into source energy, and direct it to bring healing with intention. This is something I learned how to do through practice, and of course –some training. It’s something we all can do. Source energy is that subtle vibration that connects us. If it sounds pretty obscure, that’s because we are completely trained to ignore subtleties. However, it has been proven over and over again that even our DNA changes, not because of protein synthesis, but in fact through vibrational pulses. For example, the feeling of joy can be measured through Heart Math. And, this same feeling, if tapped into and used properly– can help heal someone.

People who are very good at it can do it very quickly. If this interests you, check out Masuru Emoto’s work with water. I think this is a cool way of explaining how energy and intention create positive change. And, remember that we are made up of water. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tAvzsjcBtx8&feature=youtube_gdata_player.

So, doing Reiki from a distance merely involves me including that intention in the session. There are ancient techniques passed down from Tibet which we learn as Reiki Practitioners. But, the simple answer is that it is done with a strong intention. My first ever experience with this was when I was in Vegas and my son was in Chicago. He was sick with a fever and has way too many sensitivities to take medicine. I was freaked out. I tuned into his energy and was able to break his fever and help him release what was blocking him. Since then, I’ve experienced things that are nothing short of miracles. It’s hard to believe actually. Even for me.

Most of my clients are distance clients from all over the world. I have witnessed through them — clearing of infections, healing of heart problems and so much more. Reiki usually works best when the recipient is very ready to make a change. It’s a very subtle energy but can do huge things quickly if you flow with it. It’s easiest for me to do Reiki for you when you are sleeping because we are more open to being healed at that time. We’re in dream-land, so to speak. Not over-thinking things. So, I will often do distance healing while a client sleeps. Or, my clients will tell me that they had fabulous dreams on the night after we did our healing session over the phone, and the real transition is made during sleep.

A Time For Transparency: Mayan Calendar Endings, Health Products Exposed, and Stepping into our Divine Nature

20111028-045333.jpg

I have this amazing gift of always being led towards the truth. Often times that feels more like I’m being led AWAY from what is untrue, because my curious mind likes to dabble in the possibilities. Today marks an alternative ending of the Mayan Calendar (an ancient source that has correctly predicted countless historic events). Most people are of the belief that the calendar ends on December 21, 2012. If I dabble too long in those facts, I may miss the truth behind them.

You know that every ending marks the beginning of something. But, this particular ending has been a looooooong time coming and has been inspiring a particular kind of change in our world for quite some time. That’s the expansion of our conscious minds and what we’re capable of when we become aware of the significance of our vibrational/ energetic nature. We are literally electric beings whose very existence and growth depends largely on vibrational communications between the galaxy, our sun, our earth, our environment and our cells. We pick up vibrational signals from everything around us and translate them into growth, emotion, thought, and whatever we decide our truth is for us. Then, we live the truth that we create based upon how much of our conscious mind (who is aware of our vibrational nature) we allow to thrive.

When an era ends all of the energies in nature are set up to support that ending and its promised newness. You can feel this somewhere in your being where you know you simply “can’t take” not telling the truth about who you are anymore. Somewhere within yourself you long for better and more fulfilling friendships and careers. You see what’s most important perhaps after struggling through parts of life that didn’t warrant such resistance. You don’t want to fight anymore. But, standing up for what is right in a peaceful manner seems very fitting. Even Oprah put out a statement the other day about God being able to dream a better dream for her than she can for herself. This was a lesson in letting go and surrendering because everything in nature is there to support us when we are working toward the truth.

If it feels like you have been fighting or struggling for millions of years, and you’re ready for that kind of Bliss that you can feel in your entirety, today is the kind of day to welcome such change. The Mayans marked today as special for a reason. Astrology is the oldest known science. Even the ‘three wise men’ in the Bible used the stars to find the infant Jesus. Today’s stars are aligned ( and so is the rest of nature) for ultimate truths to surface. The truth of our divine electric, vibrational blissful power is the most important because only when you connect with your individual nature can you truly appreciate the connectedness of us all. Only then can nonsense facts be filtered from the truth for you to create your Bliss.

Today represents a new and more speedy transition into this higher form of collective consciousness. And, whatever energies ( and I’m not talking about people here. I’m talking energies… Which may be partly attached to people, and we must remember that) do not support the truth will be squeezed out. Eventually, these energies will transform into something that can support the needs of nature. Systems may die and become something else. People may be exposed for lies and become something else. You may lose a friend or a job and gain a grand opportunity that is more fitting for you. And, as hard as some of it will be– it will feel right somewhere deep within you. That which is untrue cannot live very long, And, while some people in great positions of power in our world have learned that they can quell our consciousness by using lower energies like fear — that also cannot last. Mostly, it cannot last because these people have false power. The only true power is knowing yourself, and they too have had to quiet their divine nature in order to use these lower energies. My guess is that they are tired too. And, we’ll see many of them stepping down and fowling up. And, you know this is happening already all over the place. Recently an exec from Monsanto was quoted saying “You don’t need [biotech] for something that nature has already figured out.” *

Communion with nature is the key to this part of our evolution. The Mayan calendar as well as markings in the great pyramids and ancient symbols left for us from forever ago suggest that we are preparing for the type of expansion that will reveal our own truest nature and how that relates to our connection with our planet, galaxy and our creators. You add all of this together and you get some rather magical stuff. It’s one of those things where, if you take time to study, you realize that science proves God/Goddess– intelligent creators who purposefully sculpted every last drop of beauty we know of and so much more. Any conflicts we’ve come across have been mechanisms to strengthen our knowledge and our awareness. These conflicts are representative of our free will which allows us to co-create this Bliss, and helps us get closer to serving our purpose. We chose to be human this time around (unless you’re one of my Martian friends) because our own gifts will be greatly needed during this expansion. These are not times where one leader has enough power to carry us into heightened consciousness. These are times when individuals will come together as ONE. Finally!

A Time for Transparency means you can no longer afford things in your life that are untrue. This calls for you to act from your own highest form of consciousness and continue to raise your own vibration. Because sometimes we are given the facts from both sides of an argument, and both seem right to us…. We need to look beyond the facts to find the truth. And, we need to begin experiencing life for ourselves, and getting our own answers that feel right to us. We get into some pretty deep dung when we jump on fact-bandwagons and don’t first sit back and ask ourselves what is true.

Like I said — I’ve found the blessing in being led away from untruths my entire life. But, the current scam/sham/exposé of the health product Adya Clarity (which is said to be a black mica mineral extract that purifies water and has successfully helped people detoxify from candida, mercury poison and more) gave me a really bad taste in my mouth when I first got word of it. All I could think is no wonder why I never took the time to order some for myself. I’d heard about the product from experts in the health food community and had the opportunity to try some free of charge. I didn’t feel any different after drinking my water that had been “cleansed” with Adya Clarity, and I made sure to share that water with Dougie too. I did so because I trusted what others had told me. There is nothing wrong with that. We need to be able to trust…that is once we can activate our own divine intuitive mechanisms for determining the truth. You know you were built with intuition because you too are led toward what you need. And you feel it too. In David Wilcock’s 2012 Enigma, he points out that the end of the Mayan Calendar represents the activation of our pineal gland, or what some cultures call our third eye. This actual gland is the seat of our intuition and the place where all of that electric communicational energy culminates. It’s where we determine how to act upon or translate those messages. When I took my first sip of Adya water, I did so pretty quickly without paying attention to my doubts. Months later, I began studying black mica to see what it does in nature. To my surprise, the marketing at Adya is so good that one cannot really study black mica online without running into info put there by the company who sells the extract. So, I never found enough information to inspire me to buy the product. But, I did hear so much good about it, that I had it on my list to purchase soon, and I shared much of that info with my clients. Although I hadn’t had any good or bad results from it (and I shared this with them), the fact that product was endorsed by people who I trust very much made me want to buy it for my family.

Well, today being a day of major transparency — some energies around this product are dying. Word got out that this product has toxic amounts of aluminum sulphate and some other unsavory facts. ( You will soon see an exposé on the topic… I am not an expert on this). Then, word got out that those accusations were lies and that aluminum sulphate is actually a natural occurring chemical compound found in fruit. People are bashing others in the industry who were once friends and colleagues, and many who simply want the best for us all don’t seem to have all of the facts.

My solution is this: Every single answer can be simplified for you to use to best serve yourself and others. I may not not know what facts to trust when it comes to this Adya Clarity scandal. Here is the exposé from Mike Adams at Natural News, so that you can read for yourself: http://www.naturalnews.com/034005_Adya_Clarity_consumer_alert.html.

I do know for sure that regardless of this news, we cannot afford to call names and point fingers at our brothers and sisters. That takes away from our true nature. If we join the scandal, any form of negative energy that still holds us in fear will grow because we will be afraid to trust or choose products that can potentially advance our health. We need to be grateful for those who do expose the truth, but we need to look at the problems for what they are and then focus on what we want –rather than what angers or scares us.

The people who risk their reputations so that the rest of us can know the truth are those powerful parts of ourselves that we need to embrace today. I know I am grateful for their work. In the same ways that I have been drawn away from family who doesn’t except my truth, these people too are now becoming outcasted for standing up for what is right. But, as we stand for what is right in our day today, we know we are doing our energetic part to help them on their journey.

I don’t think that Source energy cares whether or not Adya Clarity is toxic or that the Earthing Products ( an emf protection device and earth vibration product about to be exposed for the hoax of it all, and who is currently not selling products) are really like lighting bolts that load you with electromagnetic radiation. Source needs us to get to the deepest truth. In fact, this whole scenario, like many before it, may have been set up so that we can get closer to nature.

Think about this: We are made of 70% water, and our Earth’s water is so tainted that we have needed products to clean it. But, if you look at Masaru Emoto’s work, and that of many other scientists– you will find that water is a great conductor/ recipient of vibration and reacts beautifully to the vibration of love and gratitude. Perhaps the deepest truth here is that your own love vibration is strong enough to heal our water. It was our collective divorce of nature (water) which led us to this point anyway. As we get to our most transparent self, we must get closer to nature. Sure, products help– but there is no substitute for that personal experience. Just 15 minutes with your bare feet on the ground can totally improve your day.

Today, I encourage you to drop the facts for a few minutes and simply breathe in the truth. When you have a decision to make, ask your body how it feels to say yes to that decision. How do you feel in your heart, your gut, your head when you say yes? Is there relief, excitement or tension or fear? Look deeper and take your time to figure it out. You will soon become more aware of your body’s signals.

Getting to your truth will help me get to mine. This is a time to really celebrate our oneness and encourage transparencies of all the once hidden agendas that hold our health, safety and freedom at risk. Become aware of what is happening around you by asking yourself about the best food to eat, best policies to support, and best ways to use your time. By focussing on these positives, you learn more about what you want and how to get it. You stand up for what is right and you become a key player in the dissolving of those so called “elite” energies. If you instead ask yourself whether to vote Democratic or Republican, believe Joe or Susan, or buy an ionizer or Adya Clarity….you are focussing on facts that separate us, and not the ultimate truth that will save us. If you want to know the truth, ask yourself the right questions first.

Your deepest truth is mine too, because we are ONE.

Namaste,

Gina

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.

Autism Recovery: autism Undone Undoing the “Symptoms” Behind the Misunderstood Label of autism

first published on healartfully.com may 2007

The system says he’s autistic because that’s how they define environmental toxin overload: It’s not their fault — we must change the system!

To me, autism represents the overload of various toxins in an underdeveloped immune system.

This toxic burden eventually disrupts organ function and manifests itself as outward neurological, developmental, social and sensory disharmony. When the world labels an individual’s condition “autism” –the levels of toxicity and depths to which the body expresses this must be severe. This means that most of us are toxic to some degree. However, with autism, we are often dealing with immune systems that have been assaulted since pre-birth, rendering them virtually unable to naturally release these toxins like the body was designed to do.

Scientifically, toxins can build up through genetic predisposition; diet; bacterial, fungal, parasitic, viral and yeast infections; heavy metal poisoning; pollution; and are often passed down from mother to child during pregnancy and birth. Spiritually, toxins can also build up through stress and negative energy. An immune system on toxic overload can suffer malnutrition (regardless of how much food is consumed), neurologic malfunction, all kinds of allergies and autoimmune problems, sensory issues, and every other familiar trait that is regularly attributed to autism.

Most sources will classify autism as a developmental disorder, where speech, socialization and perception are delayed or seriously impaired. I reject definitions that only speak to the outward symptoms of this condition. Such sources will also neglect to offer advice for curing the autism problem.

Foundations are built on the principle of raising money to support families affected by autism – money that will help them pay for medicine and intervention. Medicine and support to help them cope with the painful symptoms, strange behaviors, and society’s ignorant remarks about their children.But nothing that gets to the core and urges them to change significant things about their lives. Families need to be aware that coping can only go on for so long.Families deserve the hope that their affected children will not have autism forever!

A Spectrum of Poison

The level of toxic build-up is as unique as the individual – resulting in a spectrum disorder. What we know for certain is that inner imbalance equals outer chaos.

When we see an individual acting out autistic symptoms like hand flapping, head banging, spinning or tantruming, – it is often a sign that the body is struggling to ease the pain of these toxins. The body wants to heal itself; and will continue to do so, in some cases causing disease and disorder as a last resort.

That is why, to me, autism also represents a final call for help – and a sign that positive change is on the way!

A person affected by autism often has great sensitivity to the unnatural (foods that have been chemically sprayed or genetically modified and overly processed, air and water pollution, traditional western medications and vaccinations, electromagnetic fields from cell phones, wifi, etc.).

I have personally witnessed remarkable transition when these unnatural things have been replaced by healthier lifestyle choices.

More children are diagnosed with autism as we continue to vaccinate them and add poisons to our planet.We have lost confidence in our own bodies’ abilities to heal ourselves and have let BIG PHARMA take control of how we medicate and prevent disease.

This is why autism was given to us. We have forgotten how to listen to our bodies, and we have traded infectious disease for chronic and autoimmune DISSARAY.

Nature Gives us The Tools to Heal: Each Person’s Needs are Unique

The best scientists support a path toward natural healing and have reported on the dangers of such toxic build-up. However, it has taken epidemic rates of autism diagnosis, (as well as other forms of toxic manifestations like allergies, ADD, and alzheimer’s ) for some of us to recognize that the way we’ve chosen to live for the last century has drastically depleted our collective health.

Conveniences like microwave ovens, and alleged safety regulations that have been placed on our food supply — like the homogenization of dairy and the irradiation of fruits and vegetables are alone causing mass malnutrition. If our food is no longer food, how can we fuel our minds?

As a disorder, autism unravels when we embrace the healing power nature provides us. This includes diet change, emotional and spiritual practices, touch and sensory therapies, and methods that evoke positive energy.

I welcome autism because it will not be cured with a pill. It will not be cured by a teacher or a doctor. In fact it requires a complete paradigm shift from the modern frame of mind.

The Gift of Autism

In order to relieve the pain that autism brings we must also honor its gift. Allowing these truly brilliant children to break through autism, means that we are giving a new hope to the world. Hope that we can finally truly learn how to heal ourselves from whatever ails us. And, as these beautiful minds become clear, these children will be the teachers that lead us into a healthier more conscious future.

Autism may just be a necessary step toward the collective detoxification of our species.

Your Gut. Your Immunity. A Key to Unraveling Autism

A child is born with a permeable gut which allows him to properly assimilate the good bacteria from his mother and benefit from the colostrum in her milk. Body Ecology refers to this as nature’s first vaccine.

This intestinal bacteria and nutrition from Mom sets the stage for the person’s immunity throughout life. This teaches the child’s body to properly respond to illness, by pushing illness out. (TH1 immune response) But, when we consider drugs used during birth, C- sections, immunizations right after birth and the stress endured in the modern labor room – we are not setting the stage for a healthy life with most of our children.

Mercury is Not the Only Problem with Vaccines

Vaccines, besides being loaded with viruses and metals, teach the body the wrong immune response (TH2 response). This forces the body to internalize illness. Thus creating autoimmune problems.

The vaccinated newborn’s gut is not allowed to develop.If the child is then put on powdered milk and soy formulas they begin to form their first digestive problems. Parents may notice this as colic, restlessness and tantrums –or there may be no signs at all.

Since our immune systems are primarily governed by our digestive tracts (colon, liver, kidneys), we find that many people on the autism spectrum begin to reject foods that cannot be easily digested and assimilated.

These foods will vary because we must consider severity and of course, the individual’s uniqueness. Gluten, casein and sugar top the list of frequently rejected foods – all of which are unsurprisingly often overly-processed, over-eaten by the general population and farmed unnaturally. If the person’s system cannot digest these which most of us consider to be food — imagine what happens when you add chemicals, fillers and whatever makes Twinkies last 50 years!

S.A.D Refers to the Standard American Diet.

And, it is sad that so many of us are filling our bodies with “foods” that have no nutritional value.

The autistic digestive tract cannot take the overload. They don’t just get stomach aches, fatigue and pimples. They lose awareness of their surroundings, they suffer horrible frustration and physical pain. They lose their words and abilities to speak their minds. They may feel the need to bang their heads or rub their faces on the wall because their skin feels numb, and they yearn for some sensation. Many children also suffer seizures.

Toxic Behavior

We have discovered behavior patterns that are directly related to specific toxins; such as incessant spinning as a result of ammonia (from protein) overload. We have heard that some children walk on their toes because it relieves the pain of a heavy gut.

We know that often overload of toxins causes mal-absorption of necessary nutrition. And, this results in malnutrition. Any good scientist will tell you that malnutrition and indigestion are the basis of most diseases.When one organ is not getting what it needs to function, all organ function begins to dwindle.

When toxins thrive the true individual cannot thrive.

Moving Beyond the Label

When I hear that there is no definite cause or cure for autism – I hear fear and laziness. I envision a collective ego that thrives on illness and disorder. I envision a system that does not want these children to break free because it would jeopardize their jobs, their beliefs, their reputations and of course THEIR MONEY.

If families identify with autism, they will be offered sympathy, statistics and half-hearted research that will inspire them to hang in there. This frame of thinking allows disease to prosper. Modern medicine profits on illness. By subscribing to the “there is no cure” bandwagon — we are keeping the negativity alive.

We are made to believe that milk does a body good and immunizations protect us.I continuously read about the dispute over vaccinations and how we are still really unsure. I am not unsure. Injecting poison into a baby is a bad thing. A bad thing! And if that poison doesn’t manifest itself as autism, it is likely to trigger allergies and chronic illness.

How long do we really want to keep playing Russian Roulette with vaccinations, processed foods, and artificially flavored lifestyles? One out of six children born today will be affected by this in childhood. And what happens when they grow up? Where do you think cancer comes from? How about Alzheimer’s?

Well, my family doesn’t want sympathy from those who refuse to research beyond the obvious. We are blessed beyond belief to even be in the same world as these children.We just want you to stay out of our healing journey, unless you are going to acknowledge that we are here. We want you to stop lying to our friends who are just discovering that their baby has a disorder which you call autism.

Parents must not be made to believe that there is some mystery behind why their beautiful little one regressed from bubbly to dazed in a matter of months! They deserve to know that their children will function properly in society! We must no longer portray children who are drastically affected by the many poisons that we have created, as some kind of idiot savants with weird behaviors!

If their little bodies were only allowed to thrive in a non toxic world, we would see more of the genius and less behavior.And, that’s why they are going to break through. Because at the core they are smarter than this system. They have the key to the continuation of humanity.

We know that there have been great scientific advancements to a cure. And quite frankly, I am grateful for all that science has done to lead me to my answers. But, there is too much miscommunication about what to do with those answers. The CDC suggests that parents discuss vaccinations amongst each other and with their pediatricians. Well, when they advertise for immunizations on the radio, what’s a parent supposed to believe?

We have plenty of great schools and programs that help. Thank you. We have tried them and we love our wonderful teachers. But, nobody has taught the teachers that there are reasons behind this.

If teachers were aware of the gut/brain connection and how environmental toxins trigger autism, these teachers would be much better equipped.

American parents should be able to rely on their government for the most up-to-date information on illnesses like this. But, our CDC’s list of recommended physicians isn’t very well rounded. DAN Doctors are changing things! Real medical doctors who advocate proper nutrition and detoxification as a means of actually RECOVERING autism are making huge strides!

We are not merely interested in helping these kids, we are interested in completely recovering them. I know that it’s a system, and I place no blame on individuals within the system who have just been doing their jobs with good intentions.

But, if those individuals are not planning to step up for the better of my baby – then I ask them to simply step down. We are here creating positive changes, and our words deserve to be heard. We deserve to be able to reveal the truth.

Their Autism Does Not Exist.

I will not prepare my son for a lifetime of not being “right” inside himself. My son is thriving and will continue to emerge from the mask created by the toxins in his body.His recovery has everything to do with eating food that provides real nutrition and heals the gut from early assaults.He is healing because his parents will not allow his little body to be attacked by vaccines any longer. And, we are not afraid of the so-called consequences.

We know that we are building his immune system to a point where he can prevent disease on his own.Geez, if everyone knew this then we wouldn’t need many vaccines would we?Because after all, it is quite likely that disease will spread if everyone just stops vaccinating, right? That is unless they all begin eating real food, and looking into their own unique nutritional and spiritual needs for balance. If we did that, we wouldn’t need so much medicine. Because disease would be something we read about in history books.

Okay, so I understand the system’s need to keep us sick. But, I’m not buying those little pills any more!

We are moving toward a greater awareness of the consequences of our past actions. We have been given a chance to change things, and I am confident that our children will experience a healthier world!
