all the hemispheres

January 26th, 2012

 All the Hemispheres

Leave the familiar for a while.

Let your senses and bodies stretch out

Like a welcomed season

Onto the meadow and shores and hills.

Open up to the Roof.

Make a new watermark on your excitement

And love.

Like a blooming night flower,

Bestow your vital fragrance of happiness

And giving

Upon our intimate assembly.

Change rooms in your mind for a day.

All the hemispheres in existence

Lie beside an equator

In your heart.

Greet Yourself

In your thousand other forms

As you mount the hidden tide and travel

Back home.

All the hemispheres in heaven

Are sitting around a fire


While stitching themselves together

Into the Great Circle inside of

how to brand a disease

January 17th, 2012

 I was reading some older BodyTalk newsletters and found this interesting post on how the pharmaceutical companies market their new products.  Check out the article~


Article by Dr. Carl Elliott M.D, CNN.com
An interesting article covering PR branding of pharmaceuticals that treat a range of diseases such as “social anxiety disorder,” a condition previously known as “shyness”, or “urge incontinence” which many patients refer to as “accidentally peeing in my pants”.
….pharmaceutical marketers now sell drugs by selling the diseases that they treat. The buzzword is “disease branding.”

To brand a disease is to shape its public perception in order to make it more palatable to potential patients. Panic disorder, reflux disease, erectile dysfunction, restless legs syndrome, bipolar disorder, overactive bladder, ADHD, premenstrual dysphoric disorder, even clinical depression: All these conditions were once regarded as rare until a marketing campaign transformed the brand.
Once a branded disease has achieved a degree of cultural legitimacy, there is no need to convince anyone that a drug to treat it is necessary. It will come to him as his own idea.

long-life secret*

 LONG-LIFE SECRET: Take a Therapeutic Bath

I took the Master Healer course awhile back with Nani.  Also attending was a man who had studied radionics and followed the work of Dr. Hazel Parcells.  Parcells was known as the “Grande Dame of alternative medicine”, researched energy healing and detoxification, and lived to 106.  One of her long-life secrets was to cleanse your internal environment too.  Here is one of Dr. Parcells’ personal bathing formulas.  

Bathing formula 1:  This is recommended after exposure to X-rays, environmental radiation, and Cobalt-60 for symptoms of headaches, nausea, cramps, or muscle aches.  Mix 1 pound of sea or rock salt and 1 pound of baking soda in a tub of very hot water.  Immerse your body in the water for at least 20 minutes or until the water cools to body temperature.  Do not shower or rinse the salt off your body for 8 hours.

I did it and it feels great!  Why not invite some physical cleansing to coincide with your New Years resolutions?

5 root causes of disease

December 7th, 2011

 A few years ago I had the opportunity to attend an Ayurveda retreat put on by Floracoepia called “In Search of the Medicine Buddha”.  One of the speakers was a Tibetan doctor.  She explained that from the understanding of Tibetan medicine, there are five root causes of disease.    They are:

*nutrition root~overfed, undernourished

*environmental toxicity

*socio-economic stress~life combined with $money worries

*spiritual disconnection with nature

*iatrogenic~improper diagnosis by doctors and improper combination of drugs

She emphasized the importance of having a garden and how it can cure it all.   Not only can you grow your own food, but also medicines.  If you can’t have a garden, in what ways can you grow towards living in a fashion that supports more sustainable ways?  Can you examine your life to eliminate or bring balance to these root issues?   

owl, i love you so*

November 19th, 2011

2 days ago I gave away an owl feather from the wing of the most beautiful owl I found freshly killed several years ago.  Then my friend and I were out walking and I looked over and there, laying in the grass and leaves was this (exact same size) owl feather.  When I picked it up, I realized this recirculation of owl medicine.  thank you! your silent wisdom came like magic.  so heart filling*   who-who-whooo

the path in, inner discovery

 ”The deepest secret is that life is not a process of discovery, but a process of creation. You are not discovering yourself but creating yourself anew. Seek, therefore, not to find out who you are, seek to determine what you want to be” – Neale Donald Walsch
