The Secrets Of Intelligent Plants

Have you ever talked with your neighboring friendly plants? Have you enjoyed or suffered their presence near or in contact with you?

Can you hear me now?
Can you feel me now?
Can you see me now?

The Plant Kingdom is alive and well all around us — has been since inception.

“Plants have electrical and chemical signaling systems, may possess memory, and exhibit brainy behavior in the absence of brains.” — CONSTRUCTION by Stephen Doyle

The idea that plants possess intelligence worthy of in depth exploration is an idea still largely scoffed at, despite the emergence of research suggesting otherwise. In large part, this is due to the widespread belief that “intelligence” and “brains” are inextricably connected, that the two must coexist to exist at all. The problem with this is our perception of what a “brain” is.

When defining the brain, we fixate too much on the physicals, like that it exists within a skull, and not enough on the invisibles, such as how it functions. Due to this, we believe brains can only exist in lifeforms that have skulls, like humans and animals, to rest in. However, when looking deeper into the characteristics of plants, we begin to find they have impressively elegant mechanisms, ones typically reserved only for those with brains. This, of course, brings us to the regrettably too often overlooked intelligence of plants.

plant-slug-bug-nature.pngPlants communicate chemically, in a manner which we cannot directly decipher. For example, an insect attack is stimulated and the release of volatile chemicals is instigated when sagebrush leaves are clipped in the spring, resulting in a significant reduction of the extent to which both the clipped plant and the unclipped plants around it suffer. Chemical communication amongst plants may also be of benefit to farmers, as research by Jack Shultz, a chemical ecologist at the University of Missouri, found that plant-distress chemicals may be used to prime plant defenses, thus eliminating the need for pesticides. Plants also display excellent hearing capabilities, a fact well demonstrated in a study showing how in reaction to the sound of a caterpillar munching on a leaf, plants secrete defensive chemicals as a response to a perceived potential threat from a foreign sound.

plant-root-brain-nature.pngAlthough plants do not have “brains,” in the sense which us humans define them as, -meaning they consist within the boundaries of a skull- they possess intricate neuronal networks with more neurons than the human brain. One might say their roots are their brains, and since they are not confined by a skull like the human brain, they are able to expand infinitely, with no existing limit on the knowledge which they obtain. Plants sense, learn, remember and react in ways similar to humans. The sensory abilities of plants are so distinguished and immaculate that they are able to gather all sensory data from one day, and integrate it to formulate an appropriate response.

Plants not only produce anesthetics, they respond to them as well. This does not, however, directly prove that plants feel pain -a topic still up for debate among scientists. What is clear is that plants possess all of the same senses attributed to humans, a fact surprising to some; as well as ones which do not follow under the category of the human senses, a fact surprising to most. Aside from their abilities to feel, hear, and taste, plants sense obstacles able to impede the growth of their roots before coming into contact with them, and shift their direction of growth accordingly. They are also able to sense gravity and the presence of water. Exactly how plants have the same senses as humans, not to mention in some ways more distinguished ones, all while void of what we envision a brain to be, remains a mystery, its answers lying in the still vastly unnavigated terrain of plant consciousness and intelligence. What we know for sure is that, like us, plants produce neurotransmitters such as dopamine, serotonin, and other chemicals to send and receive electrical signals. Concrete details beyond this remain a mystery -one that some scientists are working to unveil. Other, less humble ones, of course, label the very idea of plant consciousness and intelligence as quackery, still unaware that true science often lies in the beauty of not knowing.

Symptoms of The Shift

symptoms_of_the_shift

Everything’s Going To Be Alright!

Are you experiencing any of these ascension symptoms? Do you feel something has fundamentally changed in your life? Do you feel the ‘SHIFT’ ?

I found this article quite a while back and have observed myself and others move thru just about every one listed. How many have you experienced already?

Ascension Symptoms

1. Feeling as though you are in a pressure cooker or in intense energy; feeling stress. Remember, you are adjusting to a higher vibration and you will eventually adjust. Old patterns, behaviors and beliefs are also being pushed to the surface. There is a lot going on inside of you.

2. A feeling of disorientation; not knowing where you are; a loss of a sense of place. You are not in 3D anymore, as you have moved or in the process of moving into the higher realms.

3. Unusual aches and pains throughout different parts of your body. You are purifying and releasing blocked energy vibrating at 3D, while you are vibrating in a higher dimension.

4. Waking at night between 2 and 4 a.m. Much is going on in your dream state. You can’t be there for long lengths of time and need a break. This is also the ‘cleansing and releasing’ hour.

5. Memory loss. A great abundance of short term memory loss and only vague remembrances of your past. You are in more than one dimension at a time, and going back and forth as part of the transition, you are experiencing a ‘disconnect’. Also, your past is part of the Old, and the Old is forever gone. Being in the Now is the way of the New World.

6. ‘Seeing’ and ‘hearing’ things. You are experiencing different dimensions as you transition, all according to how sensitive you are and how you are wired.

7. Loss of identity. You try to access the Old you, but it is no longer there. You may not know who you are looking at in the mirror. You have cleared much of your old patterns and are now embodying much more light and a simpler, more purified divine you. All is in order, You are okay.

8. Feeling ‘out of body’. You may feel as though someone is talking, but it is not you. This is our natural defence mechanism of survival when we are under acute stress or feeling traumatized or out of control. Your body is going through a lot and you may not want to be in it. My ascension guide told me that this was a way of easing the transition process, and that I did not need to experience what my body was going through. This only lasted a short time. It passes.

9. Periods of deep sleeping. You are resting from all the acclimating and are integrating, as well as building up for the next phase.

10. Heightened sensitivities to your surroundings. Crowds, noise, foods, TV, other human voices and various other stimulations are barely tolerable. You also overwhelm very easily and become easily overstimulated. You are tuning up. Know that this will eventually pass.

11. You don’t feel like doing anything. You are in a rest period, ‘rebooting’. Your body knows what it needs. In addition, when you begin reaching the higher realms, ‘doing’ and ‘making things happen’ becomes obsolete as the New energies support the feminine of basking, receiving, creating, self-care and nurturing. Ask the Universe to ‘bring’ you what you want while you are enjoying yourself and having fun.

12. An intolerance for lower vibrational things of the 3D, reflected in conversations, attitudes, societal structures, healing modalities, etc. They literally make you feel ‘sick’ inside. You are in a higher vibration and your energies are no longer in alignment. You are being ‘pushed, to move forward; to ‘be’ and create the New.

13. A loss of desire for food. Your body is adjusting to a new, higher state of being. Also, part of you does not want to be here anymore in the Old.

14. A sudden disappearance of friends, activities, habits, jobs and residences. You are evolving beyond what you used to be, and these people and surroundings no longer match your vibration. The New will soon arrive and feel so-o-o-o much better.

15. You absolutely cannot do certain things anymore. When you try to do your usual routine and activities, it feels downright awful. You are evolving beyond what you used to be, and these people and surroundings no longer match your vibration. The New will soon arrive and feel so-o-o-o much better.

16. Days of extreme fatigue. Your body is losing density and going through intense restructuring.

17. A need to eat often along with what feels like attacks of low blood sugar. Weight gain, especially in the abdominal area. A craving for protein. You are requiring an enormous amount of fuel for this ascension process. Weight gain with an inability to loose it no matter what you do is one of the most typical experiences. Trust that your body knows what it is doing.

18. Experiencing emotional ups and downs; weeping. Our emotions are our outlet for release, and we are releasing a lot.

19. A wanting to go Home, as if everything is over and you don’t belong here anymore. We are returning to Source. Everything is over, but many of us are staying to experience and create the New World. Also, our old plans for coming have been completed.

20. Feeling you are going insane, or must be developing a mental illness of some sort. You are rapidly experiencing several dimensions and greatly opening. Much is available to you now. You are just not used to it. Your awareness has been heightened and your barriers are gone. This will pass and you will eventually feel very at Home like you have never felt before, as Home is now here.

21. Anxiety and panic. Your ego is losing much of itself and is afraid. Your system is also on overload. Things are happening to you that you may not understand. You are also losing behaviour patterns of a lower vibration that you developed for survival in 3D. This may make you feel vulnerable and powerless. These patterns and behaviours you are losing are not needed in the higher realms. This will pass and you will eventually feel so much love, safety and unity. Just wait.

22. Depression. The outer world may not be in alignment with the New, higher vibrational you. It doesn’t feel so good out there. You are also releasing lower, darker energies and you are ‘seeing’ through them. Hang in there.

23. Vivid, wild and sometimes violent dreams. You are releasing many, many lifetimes of lower vibrational energy. Many are now reporting that they are experiencing beautiful dreams. Your dream state will eventually improve and you will enjoy it again. Some experience this releasing while awake. My mother commented one day that she believed I was having nightmares in the daytime.

24. Night sweats and hot flashes. Your body is ‘heating’ up as it burns off residue.

25. Your plans suddenly change in mid-stream and go in a completely different direction. Your soul is balancing out your energy. It usually feels great in this new direction, as your soul knows more than you do. It is breaking your ‘rut’ choices and vibration.

26. You have created a situation that seems like your worst nightmare, with many ‘worst nightmare’ aspects to it. Your soul is guiding you into ‘stretching’ into aspects of yourself where you were lacking, or into ‘toning down’ aspects where you had an overabundance. Your energy is just balancing itself. Finding your way to peace through this situation is the test you have set up for yourself. This is your journey, and your soul would not have set it up if you weren’t ready. You are the one who finds your way out and you will. Looking back, you will have gratitude for the experience and be a different person.

How Acidic Foods Affect Your Body Over Time

IT’S A KNOWN SCIENTIFIC HEALTH FACT: Cancer is a type of fungus that can only grow in an ACID state in your body and it feeds on sugar and carbs that turn into sugar.

So then, what can you do today to easily and effortlessly prevent and ward off this threat?

how-acidic-foods-affect-body-health-ph

How Acidic Foods Affect Your Body

MAKE SIMPLE HEALTHY CHOICES:  Begin  you transition by eating more  alkaline foods and drink plenty of PiMag Living Alkaline water every day to counter-act all the acid foods and drinks.

Consider these — Coffee is Acidic ! Sodas are Acidic! Sport drinks are acidic! Bottled Waters are Acidic! The Air we breath is Acidic! Milk and Dairy is Acidic. Many Foods we eat are ACIDIC! Yes, we can’t just stop them all at once. That’s why I recommend my clients to progressively ‘substitute’ and introduce these habits at their own pace.

Simply put — Our bodies are alkaline by design and acidic by function. Over time, the body breaks down and looses it ability to excrete toxins and metabolic wastes. Immune system is then greatly compromised. Energy level and personal confidence levels drop. Attitude becomes pathetic. Your lifestyle suffers. You loose hope. Sound like someone you might know???

LEARN WHAT FOODS ARE ACIDIC AND ALKALINE: This chart is a great way to begin your transformation.

pH level do you know yours

Know Your pH Body – Alkaline By Design, Acidic By Function

LIVE A PREVENTIVE & ENERGETIC THRIVING LIFESTYLE: To neutralize and naturalize acids in the body from all contributing sources: food, water, air, emotional & physical stress, poor rest/sleep, you must learn how to substitute and consume more alkaline foods, drink & shower in alkaline water, breathe clean, mountain fresh, ionized air, get deep restful & rejuvenating rest/sleep.

HOW TO BEGIN: There are many ways to begin your transition. One way is to simply start substituting Nikken’s Healthy Lifestyle technologies in your home and office. Life gets easy to transform when you just use them and let them do the work!!

Ask me your questions and become informed. You’ll be glad you did.

* If you still think a healthy lifestyle is ‘expensive’ … have you considered the astronomical costs and suffering from disease, sickness, cancer?

Coconut Oil Contributes To Your Health, Hair & Longevity

coconut oil jar spoon trader joesIMAGINE THIS:  Coconut oil tastes great right out of the jar — And it melts in your mouth, not in your hands! Much better for you than your favorite colored M & M’s, so your kids will like it too.

Coconut oil has been a dietary and beauty staple for millennia. It’s a powerful destroyer of all kinds of microbes, from viruses to bacteria to protozoa, many of which can be harmful, and provides your body with high-quality fat that is critical for optimal health.

Around 50 percent of the fat in coconut oil is lauric acid, which is rarely found in nature. In fact, coconut oil contains the most lauric acid of any substance on Earth.

Your body converts lauric acid into monolaurin, a monoglyceride that can actually destroy lipid-coated viruses such as HIV and herpes, influenza, measles, gram-negative bacteria, and protozoa such as giardia lamblia.

This is undoubtedly part of what makes it so medicinally useful—both when taken internally and applied externally.

Coconut oil is comprised of medium chain fatty acids (MCFAs) that are easily digested and readily cross cell membranes. MCFAs are immediately converted by your liver into energy rather than being stored as fat. This is in part why I recommend coconut oil as an ideal replacement for non-vegetable carbohydrates.

Coconut oil is easy on your digestive system and does not produce an insulin spike in your bloodstream, so for a quick energy boost, you could simply eat a spoonful of coconut oil, or add it to your food.

TO GET MORE COCONUT OIL INTO YOUR DIET

Countless Ways Coconut Oil Contributes To Your Health & LongevityYou can add it to your tea or coffee, in lieu of a sweetener. It will also help improve absorption of fat-soluble vitamins, so taking a spoonful of coconut oil along with your daily vitamins may help boost their effectiveness.

Coconut oil is ideal for all sorts of cooking and baking, as it can withstand higher temperatures without being damaged like many other oils (olive oil, for example, should not be used for cooking for this reason).

Furthermore, coconut oil does not go rancid, which is a huge boon when you’re making homemade concoctions. Coconut oil that has been kept at room temperature for a year has been tested for rancidity, and showed no evidence of it. Since you would expect the small percentage of unsaturated oils naturally contained in coconut oil to become rancid, it seems that the other (saturated) oils have a powerful antioxidant effect.

YOUR HAIR’S BEST FRIEND

electric energy child hair powederCoconut oil is also known for its hair benefits. Most women seem to prefer using it as a pre-shampoo conditioner. (It’s okay to look like this when you’re little, when most people think your ‘cute’, right?) Okay, I digress. So you simply massage the coconut oil onto dry hair and leave on for about an hour or longer. You could even leave it on overnight. Just wear a shower cap to protect your pillow. Then, wash and style as usual.

When applied in this manner, the coconut oil inhibits the penetration of water into the hair strands, which would otherwise cause the cuticle, or surface of the hair shaft, to rise, making it prone to damage and breakage. Furthermore, when applied as a pre-wash treatment, a small amount of the coconut oil is able to penetrate deeper into the hair shaft during the wash, when the hair fiber swells slightly.

This can also explain why so many rave about the oil’s ability to prevent “the frizzies” in humid weather—this is another feature of its hydrophobic activity. More porous types of hair may find coconut oil particularly beneficial, such as African and chemically treated hair, as well as those suffering with any type of scalp problems, including dandruff.

OIL PULLING FOR CLEANSING, DETOXIFYING & HEALING

oil pulling coconut oil health tablespoonAnother oral health technique where I believe coconut oil can be quite beneficial is oil pulling. This technique has significantly reduced my plaque buildup, allowing me to go longer between visits to the dental hygienist. (Adding fermented vegetables to my diet has been another game-changer in my oral health.)

Oil pulling is a practice dating back thousands of years, having originated with Ayurvedic medicine. When oil pulling is combined with the antimicrobial power of coconut oil, I believe it can be a very powerful health tool. Sesame oil is traditionally recommended, but it has relatively high concentration of omega-6 oils. I believe coconut oil is far superior, and it tastes much better. From a mechanical and biophysical perspective, it is likely that both work.

Oil pulling involves rinsing your mouth with the oil, much like you would with a mouthwash. The oil is “worked” around your mouth by pushing, pulling, and drawing it through your teeth for a period of 15 minutes. This process allows the oil to “pull out” bacteria, viruses, fungi and other debris. The best time is in the morning before eating breakfast, but it can be done at any time. When done, BE SURE to spit out the oil and rinse your mouth with fresh water. Avoid swallowing the oil as it will be loaded with bacteria and whatever potential toxins and debris it has pulled out.

When done correctly, oil pulling has a significant cleansing, detoxifying and healing affect, not only for your mouth and sinuses but for the rest of your body as well. Candida and Streptococcus are common residents in your mouth, and these germs and their toxic waste products can contribute to plaque accumulation and tooth decay, in addition to secondary infections and chronic inflammation throughout your body. Oil pulling may help lessen the overall toxic burden on your immune system by preventing the spread of these organisms from your mouth to the rest of your body, by way of your bloodstream.

14 SURPRISING HOUSEHOLD USES FOR COCONUT OIL

Last but not least, coconut oil can be used for a number of household tasks otherwise relegated to more costly, and potentially toxic, alternatives. Following are 14 creative yet practical uses for this fantastic oil:

Sea salt and baking soda, best all natural remedy for curing radiation exposure and cancer.

If you have been exposed to any form of radiation, either for medical diagnostic purposes (fluoroscopy/mammography/other medical x-ray exams) or in the course of radiotherapy treatment, or if you are otherwise concerned by excessive radiation exposure, overload or poisoning (such as living near a nuclear reactor facility, working with diagnostic radiological equipment/in the nuclear processing industries/uranium mining/uranium or plutonium processing), or if you have been exposed to radioactive particles or higher ionizing radiation doses stemming from other sources such as depleted uranium (DU), testing of atomic weapons, frequent flights in higher altitudes, a nuclear disaster (radiation fallout from the Japan nuclear power plants) etc., here are a number of tips and suggested remedies how to naturally help your body excrete damaging radioactive elements (e.g. strontium and radioactive iodine) or detoxify their noxious byproducts such as free radicals as well as deal with radiation burns.

baking soda radiation exposure cancer sea salt

Sea salt & baking soda

If you are having any kind of radiation treatments, macrobiotic is the cure.  Macrobiotics is very effective in curing radiation sickness and cancer.

If you are diagnosed with cancer and you want to survive the cancer avoid any and all exposure to radiation treatment. Radiation treatment of any kind is what actually kills people diagnosed with cancer.  Exposure to radiation causes a cascade of free radicals that wreak havoc on the body. Free radicals damages DNA, protein, and fats. Free radical damage has been clinically proven to be a major contributor to cancer.  That being said, people don’t die of cancer, they die of radiation poisoning.  The repeated exposure to radiation through so-called treatment overwhelms the body’s immune system. Cancer doesn’t cause hair loss for cancer patients, the radiation treatment is solely responsible for that. Cancer doesn’t cause weight loss, the radiation treatment causes that because it suppresses your appetite. Cancer doesn’t cause a cancer patient to become very weak and sick, the radiation treatment poisons the body and makes them very weak and sick.

According to Michio and Aveline Kushi, in his book Macrobiotic Diet, Michio Kushi states: ‘At the time of the atomic bombing of Nagasaki in 1945, Tatsuichiro Akizuki, M.D., was director of the Department of Internal Medicine at St. Francis Hospital in Nagasaki. Most patients in the hospital, located one mile from the center of the blast, survived the initial effects of the bomb, but soon after came down with symptoms of radiation sickness from the radioactivity that had been released. Dr. Akizuki fed his staff and patients a strict macrobiotic diet of brown rice, miso* and tamari soy sauce soup, wakame and other sea vegetables, Hokkaido pumpkin, and sea salt and prohibited the consumption of sugar and sweets. As a result, he saved everyone in his hospital, while many other survivors in the city perished from radiation sickness.’”

In case you missed it the secret to surviving all forms of radiation exposure is sea salt. If you are concerned about the radiation fallout from the Japan nuclear plants disaster or if you had an X-ray (from hospitals and airport screening) or radiation treatments for cancer, soak your body in sea salt (not iodized table salt) baths to help pull out the radiation from your body.

Baking soda used for balancing radiation contamination: At Los Alamos National Laboratory in New Mexico, researcher Don York has used baking soda to clean soil contaminated with uranium. Sodium bicarbonate binds with uranium, separating it from the dirt; so far, York has removed as much as 92 percent of the uranium from contaminated soil samples. The United States Army recommends the use of baking soda to protect the kidneys from radiation damage.

Radiation is very toxic. Exposure to radiation of any amount is harmful to your body. Exposure to radiation through x-rays (hospitals and airport screening) or any of the so-called cancer treatments are the most dangerous source of radiation poisoning. X-rays and radiation cancer treatments are far deadlier than radiation fallout because the exposure is concentrated and frequent.

To pull the radiation poison out of the body, try bathing in half a cup of sea salt and half a cup of baking soda. Soak for at least 20-30 minutes, every day for three weeks or every other day for six weeks. . . or go on a vacation to the West Indies or South Pacific and swim in the ocean every day for three weeks! Why the Indies or South Pacific? Because of the higher concentration of sea salt.  Where is the best place on Earth to go for curing yourself of radiation?  The Dead Sea.   The Dead Sea salt content is four times that of most world’s oceans.  Sea salt draws the radiation out of the body.

Can’t afford to travel to the Dead Sea and cure yourself of the radiation poison from nuclear plant fallout, x-rays and radiation cancer treatment?  A tiny pinch of good quality sea salt in several glasses of PiMag Living Alkaline water each day will provide one with all the minerals and trace elements you  need to rid your body of the radiation and stay healthy.

Can’t stomach sea salt? The amino acid, cysteine also protects against the damaging effects of radiation by terminating the free radicals produced by ionizing radiation. Cysteine, together with methionine, cystine, and their derivatives, is numbered among the “sulphurated amino acids” due to the fact that these amino acids contain sulfur in addition to carbon, hydrogen, nitrogen and oxygen.

Common Household Chemical Found in Teflon Frying Pans Linked to Heart Disease, New Study Finds

I haven’t used Teflon for many year now. It’s just one of the many ‘smart moves’ anyone can make in their lifestyle as well. The awareness and research has been out for some time now – that there are other better suited materials available for cooking surfaces. And it’s not just cooking with Teflon that you need to be more aware of –  it’s a variety of uses, such as it’s widespread use in carpeting, apparel, upholstery, leather, floor waxes, and electrical insulation to name a few.

Since cooking in most industrialized countries is virtually a daily occurrence, it’s more important than you might think to be on the right side of this information. So here we go again. Please do your own research and find out why this is so VITAL to your health and well-being.

What are you REALLY frying?Researchers from the West Virginia University School of Public Health in Morgantown have found a strong correlation between human exposure to a common household chemical and cardiovascular disease in the U.S. population. The chemical, perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA), has been used since the mid-20th century by such companies as 3M and DuPont in a variety of applications, such as carpeting, apparel, upholstery, leather, floor waxes, and electrical insulation. PFOA has also been used in the manufacture of Teflon and Gore-Tex. Some types of food packaging such as microwave popcorn bags have also been found to contain PFOA, according to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (USFDA).

In their article, “Perfluorooctanoic Acid and Cardiovascular Disease in U.S. Adults,” published this month in Archives of Internal Medicine, researchers Anoop Shankar, Jie Xiao, and Alan Ducatman write that “PFOA is detectable in the blood of more than 98 percent of the US population.” Their new study of 1,261 people shows that higher blood levels of PFOA are associated with increased occurrence of cardiovascular disease (CVD) and peripheral arterial disease (PAD), independent of other factors such as age, race, sex, ethnicity, smoking status, obesity, diabetes, high blood pressure, and cholesterol.

Nothing is worth more than your health. And even more so for your children. So spend your hard-earned money where it will count most. You can learn more about living in a healthy home, a healthy environment, here on my previous post announcing Healthy Child, Healthy World news.

Are You at Risk of Diabetes & Obesity? Less Sleep, Disrupted Internal 24-Hour Clock, Major Factors Sighted

Yet ANOTHER study confirms what most health conscious people already know intuitively:
Too little QUALITY sleep or ABNORMAL sleep patterns will raise havoc with primary body and mind performance.

A study by researchers at Brigham and Women’s Hospital reinforces the finding that too little sleep or sleep patterns that are inconsistent with our body’s ‘internal biological clock’ may lead to increased risk of diabetes and obesity.

This finding has been seen in short-term lab studies and when observing human subjects via epidemiological studies. However, unlike epidemiological studies, this new study provides support by examining humans in a controlled lab environment over a prolonged period, and altering the timing of sleep, mimicking shift work or recurrent jet lag.   The study was electronically published on April 11, 2012 in Science Translational Medicine.

Here is the complete posting by the National Sleep Foundation.

So… Did You Sleep Well Last Night?

Few things can make you feel better than a good nights sleep, right? And few things have as powerful an influence on our lives and health. Sleep restores and recharges us, keeps us healthy, and can improve so many health conditions. Nikken, a leader in cutting-edge health, wellness and fitness technologies, has developed advanced sleep technology that helps you stay healthy and get the rest you need.


Watch this video that explains more about the patented Radial Axis Magnetic (RAM) technology that is implemented in Nikken’s Naturest Sleep System.

I can’t say enough about my Kenko Naturest Sleep System, and this video tells me why. It’s designed to increase relaxation & support and a variety of physical & mental functions for restful & restorative sleep.

Solar Return ~ It’s Just A Ride

Solar Return Energy In MotionAre you experiencing unfamiliar and often unexplainable physical and emotional symptoms in your body and in your life? Are the people in and around your life behaving like never before? (does the word ‘wacko’ come to mind?) Are you observing changes in weather patterns, atmospheric pressure, ecosystems, as well as other natural phenomenon?

Are you open to the possibility that these are occurring as part of a much grander, cosmic shift also underway? Many of the esoteric texts and ancient traditions, along with a growing list of recent and current scientific findings, suggest that this may in fact be true. It’s just been so long and far back in our distant past – in our cellular memories – thtat all this feels so strange and even foreign to us right now.

So What Is Going On?  There is quite a bit going on. Geysha Pathinathan writes:  “The energies that you are currently experiencing – intensified Solar activity (solar flares/radiation) and heightened electromagnetic shifts within the Earth plane – are all part of the Greater evolution of the Galaxy and the Universe as a whole.

Change Is The Essence Of LifeYour physical bodies are being recalibrated to hold more Solar frequencies as the Sun is experiencing an evolutionary shift in order to support the inhabitants of planet Earth.  Your living DNA – coding, structure and frequencies – are evolving into Solar strands to facilitate such a change without causing harm to your physical bodies.

As the energies of the planet heighten, you will experience various physical and emotional symptoms. Realize that these are growing pains and will move through your chakras, as they balance and align you to the new frequencies becoming available within the planet.

Your ability to hold these new frequencies are based upon your individual evolutionary paths.  In time, all inhabitants of planet Earth will vibrate at these new Solar frequencies in harmony with the frequency of the planet itself.

As your bodies undergo adjustments and re-adjustments to the new frequencies at a quantum molecular level, so will the planet, along with its fauna and flora.  This may cause changes in weather patterns, atmospheric pressure, ecosystems, as well as other natural phenomenon.

This is all taking place to bring the planet to a new level of sustainability and balance – that of the New Solar Earth which will be inhabited by your Solar Light bodies.”

Change Is The Essence Of LifeWhy Me? I Didn’t Ask For This.  Geysha continues, “As these changes take place within the planet, there are those of you that have chosen to be present within this time and space in advancing your individual evolutionary cycle.  And there are those of you that have been asked to return, to bring forth the ancient wisdom of the Stars and Galaxies beyond.

In speaking to the latter group – there are remembrances taking place within you – of the origin and purpose of your presence within this planet at this time.  Your presence brings with it new frequencies and ancient teachings that were once present within this planet.

Your presence here will shed Light upon the ancient wisdom teachings, as well as introduce the unique gifts which you bring, for the uplifting and evolution of planet Earth.”

In summary: Now Is Your Time To Celebrate Who You Really Are. The moment you decide to CHOOSE to move forward in celebrating these amazing times upon us, you have in that moment transformed again. If you find a part of your self struggling or resisting this movement, consider grabbing a Lifeline.

It may also be helpful to remind ourselves that – in the words of Bill Hicks – “It’s Just A Ride!”

Google gets web rights for the Dead Sea scrolls

Dead Sea ScrollsGoogle gets web rights for the Dead Sea scrolls
AGENCE FRANCE-PRESSE SEPTEMBER 26, 2011

Five of the main Dead Sea scrolls, containing some of the oldest known surviving biblical texts, were put online Monday as part of a joint project between the Israel Museum and Google.

The project gives the public access to ultra high-resolution images of the ancient scrolls in a format that is easily searchable, with the magnified text revealing details previously invisible to the naked eye, a museum statement said.

So far, five of the scrolls have been digitized as part of the $3.5-million project that uses space-age technology to produce the clearest renderings yet of the ancient texts: the Great Isaiah scroll, the Community Rule scroll, the commentary on Habbakuk, the Temple scroll and the War scroll.

By visiting http: //dss.collections.imj. org.il/ people can view all of the text, as well as a translation tool and other background information on the documents, the museum said. “We are privileged to house in the Israel Museum’s Shrine of the Book the best preserved and most complete Dead Sea scrolls ever discovered,” Israel Museum director James Snyder said, describing them as of “paramount importance” for the world’s monotheistic religions.

“Now, through our partnership with Google, we are able to bring these treasures to the broadest possible public.”

The 900 biblical and other manuscripts, comprising some 30,000 fragments, were discovered between 1947 and 1956 in the Qumran caves above the Dead Sea and photographed in their entirety with infra-red technology in the 1950s.

S-T-R-E-S-S Relief 1-2-3

Angry BirdsEver wonder how business survived before smart phones? I remember the day when memos came via the USPS! And when I called someone, I’d ask ‘How are you?’ instead of ‘Where are you?’

The better question is not how did we survive without all this technology but how do we survive with it? As 24/7 accessibility and the speed at which information is transmitted increase, so do our stress levels. We feel compelled to multitask and respond to incoming information as quickly as it was received. Emotions go on overdrive because we can’t keep up. Fears, worries and anxieties are amplified, along with frustration, irritation and anger.

As if that weren’t enough, the race to keep up with the pace of information blurs the lines between urgent and important. Things that are important don’t get done or we rush to get them done, only adding to more feelings of overload and overwhelm. S-T-R-E-S-S ! ! !

STRESS RELIEF 1-2-3:  For those times when we don’t have the time to do what most traditional approaches to stress reduction tell us – RELAX – we need quick stress relief, something we can do 24/7 while we multitask and answer all those texts, twits, and e-mails. Something we can do that doesn’t require a trip to the spa, a stroll on the beach or an escape to our ‘quiet room’.

Download this stress reduction app into your core memory now; it’s fast, instant and on demand. When you are feeling the stress press, practice these simple steps:

1. Heart focus. Focus your attention to the area around your heart.
2. Heart breathing. Imagine your breath flowing into and out of the area around your heart.
3. Heart feeling. Recall a positive memory, feeling or a time you felt good and IMAGINE you are now re-experiencing it.

Drinking a glass of water before you do this will not only replenish liquids your body and mind probably need anyway, doing so will make it easier for your thoughts and emotions to flow and release much faster and easier too. Water conducts electricity and e-motions are energy-in-motion. Since I have been drinking PiMag Living water I have noticed much improvement in a variety of ways. It’s what I recommend to all my clients.

If your stress has become chronic in nature, it very likely is also producing unwanted biological (physical) symptoms and/or behavioral (emotional) symptoms in your life and your relationships. For more assistance Grab a Lifeline.

7 Habits of Highly Miserable & Unhealthy People

Is this the you nobody sees?

Is Your LIFESTYLE Killing You?

SUGGESTIONS & PRACTICES TO TAKE ON A DAILY BASIS:

  1. 1.  DO NOT TAKE GOOD TIPS FROM REALLY HEALTHY PEOPLE. WHEN YOU GO TO A DOCTOR AND HE/SHE LOOKS LIKE HE/SHE IS GOING TO DROP DEAD OF A HEART ATTACK, DO JUST WHAT THEY SAY AND DON’T QUESTION ANY OF IT.
  2. DO NOT EXERCISE, THAT IS REALLY BAD FOR YOU. SIT ON YOUR BUTT AS MUCH AS YOU CAN, IT’S EASIER. IT’S OKAY TO ACCEPT YOURSELF AS THE KIND OF PERSON YOU ONCE LOOKED UPON BACK IN YOUR YOUTH AND TOLD YOURSELF, “GEE, HOW CAN ANYONE JUST LET THEMSELVES GO LIKE THAT? I’LL NEVER BE LIKE THAT!”
  3. MAKE SURE YOU DO NOT DRINK CLEAN, FILTERED, LIVING WATER BECAUSE YOU ARE MOSTLY MADE UP OF WATER AND YOU WORK BETTER WITH WATER. IT IS BETTER TO DRINK COFFEE BECAUSE IT GETS YOUR ADRENALS GOING AND IT’S OKAY THAT THEY WON’T WORK PROPERLY WHEN THEY REALLY NEED TO IN MY LATER YEARS. DRINK A LOT OF SOFT-DRINKS, FAKE SUGARED WATER (ASPARTAME, Etc) ESPECIALLY – SINCE THE “DIET’ TYPES OF SODA REALLY ACCELERATE A STATE OF OSTEOPOROSIS IN OUR STRUCTURAL BONES. THAT WON’T MAKE ME TOO MISERABLE. AND OF COURSE, TO REALLY HASTEN MY AGING AND QUALITY OF LIFE, DRINK PLENTY OF ALCOHOL ON A REGULAR BASIS BECAUSE IT WILL KILL MY LIVER. WHO NEEDS THAT ANYWAY?chronic-disease-food-choice-toxic-ingredients-nutritional-deficiencies-lack-physical-excercise-mcd.jpg
  4. DO NOT SLEEP ON A PROPERLY DESIGNED SLEEP SYSTEM MADE FOR THE STRESSES AND LIFESTYLE OF THIS DAY AND AGE. DO NOT PROPERLY RECHARGE FROM OUR 24/7 WORLD OF THE HIGHEST DENSITY OF EMF POLLUTION MAN HAS EVER LIVED IN. IF YOU DO SLEEP MORE THAN 6 HOURS, BE SURE TO EAT A BIG MEAL, ESPECIALLY WITH SUGARS AND CARBS, BEFORE YOU RETIRE FOR THE EVENING, BECAUSE IT WILL MAKE SURE THAT INSULIN WILL DISABLE THE BODY’S BUILT-IN RESTORATIVE SYSTEMS TO NOT CREATE GROWTH HORMONES (HGH). THAT WAY, THINGS WILL DEPLETE FASTER AND YOU’LL GAIN EVEN MORE FAT ON YOU’RE ALREADY LEAN, MUSCLE REDUCING FRAME. AND MAKE SURE YOU HAVE THE TV OR RADIO ON IN YOUR BEDROOM OR SO IT’S EVEN HARDER FOR YOUR BRAIN TO RELAX AND REACH  NORMAL REGENERATIVE SLEEP STATES.
  5. DO NOT TAKE TIME OUT FOR YOURSELF. IT’S JUST A WASTE OF TIME TO PRAY, MEDITATE OR OTHERWISE TAKE BRISK WALKS OUTSIDE. IT IS BETTER TO RUN YOURSELF TO THE GROUND AND TRY TO DO IT BETTER AND FASTER TOMORROW. PLUS IT IS A BETTER STORY TO TELL OTHERS, SINCE YOU HAVE NO AVAILABLE ENERGY LEFT (‘BATTERIES ARE DEAD’) AND YOU’RE JUST NOT AVAILABLE TO DO ANYTHING WITH ANYONE ELSE.
  6. KEEP UP THE JUNK FOOD, EMPTY CALORIE, AND NUTRIENT DEFICIENT FOODS. IT’S CHEAPER, KEEPS ME WANTING MORE OF IT, AND I JUST LOVE HOW I GET TO WEAR IT AFTERWARDS TOO! AND MAKE SURE YOU SMOKE TOO! THAT REALLY HELPS EVERYTHING.
  7. DO NOT BOTHER BREATHING CLEAN, FILTERED, IONIZED AIR. JUST KEEP SUCKING MORE TOXIC AND UNSAFE CHEMICALS INTO YOUR LUNGS, WHICH ARE DELIVERED THRU YOUR BLOOD TO EVERY (STILL) LIVING CELL IN YOUR BODY.

Is Our DNA Mutating?

Human DNA - Is it Changing / Mutating?It’s not ALL in your head. Your doctor or health care provider might tell you otherwise. In fact, it’s happening right now in ALL of your 50+ Trillion living cells!

Modern medicine has finally released to the press that the first human with 3 DNA strands (instead of 2) was born. Of course, the case of ‘little Alfie’ is the first one officially acknowledged by the medical community, but by no means the only one in existence.

In fact, years ago independent doctors were working with children who developed the third DNA strand.

Are they different? I am absolutely delighted to inform you that they are very special and in fact all humans are mutating to a superior species, as we speak. Here’s how: Enjoy this enlightening article.

IMAGINE our many psychic abilities and powers such as telekinesis, levitation, multi-dimensional healing/transformation & telepathy as very soon BE-ing as common as any of our other well-developed sensory systems – seeing, feeling, hearing, tasting and smelling. Our individual and collective ‘field’ is shifting, transforming and mutating in ways our current sensory receptors can not YET fully interpret, as we are ‘retooling’ on a Galactic Level.

I am observing that there are Great Times to be celebrated on this amazing planet right now, and well, well into our futures! So then fear not my fellow evolving-humans, and know that, as one of earth’s most recent teachers is recorded as saying to his followers about 2000 years ago, “You will DO things far greater than I have, WHEN YOU BELIEVE YOU CAN” ♥

Scientific Proof that Galactic Energies Have Triggered Worldwide Consciousness Expansion

On Coast to Coast AM, scientist David Sereda provided evidence that our Solar System entered a new field of cosmic energy that set off a chain of events including the vibration of the entire planet, the largest storm ever recorded on Saturn, and an early sunrise in Greenland (related to a wobble of the Earth and magnetic pole movement).  The sequence of events began the day after the combined Winter Solstice and total lunar eclipse on December 21, 2010 – exactly two years to the day before the end of the Mayan calendar.

On Dec 22, 2010, one day after the Winter Solstice/total lunar eclipse, earthquake sensors all over the planet all went off at the same time with full signal strength.  According to Sereda, this was not an earthquake – the entire planet vibrated.

On Dec 23, 2010 NASA reported that the largest storm ever recorded on Saturn erupted and is still going on today.  Saturn is usually a very smooth object to look at.  But, the storm on Saturn is massive.  (Note that the storm may have also begun on Dec 22, but wasn’t reported until the next day.)

David Wilcock, among others, has been lecturing for several years now about energy coming in from the galactic center that will trigger higher consciousness and a DNA upgrade.  You can learn a whole lot more by watching his outstanding film, “2012 Event Horizon”:
