Life-Long Learning




YOU are YOUR childhood – mind, body, and spirit.  YOU have

gone through the development stages of maturing into who you

are today – going from dependent upon your childhood

parents/mentor/guardians that make decisions for YOU to being

independent and making your own decisions about YOUR


Body, Mind, and Spirit


Most likely what you did in your childhood is what you usually do

in adulthood or you search for your own spirituality in your own

time and look for your spirituality outside what you had in your



You and I, as young children learned through their direct

experience and through observation of other’s behavior, and not

by way of abstract discussion.   Children learn particular practices

by participating in them.


Besides immersing children in the ongoing practice of cultural and

religious traditions, parents can also foster children’s appreciation

of their heritage through games and crafts on their family and

cultural history, these are important for spiritual growth as we

develop and mature and age.


Cultural practices including music, language, food and dress are

important to each of us for all the time we are here.  But, exposing

children to other cultures at an early age help develop them

tolerance and appreciation of cultural differences and diversity;

skills they will need to navigate the complex and culturally

interdependent modern world – our next door neighbor and



A child’s spiritual life should be age appropriate.  Overall

development of every child is unique.  Before age 10 or so, the

spiritual parenting will have the most lasting effect if it builds a

foundation in the SELF rather than focusing on principles.


Every young child should feel that:


They are loved and lovable


Meditation can add to a sense of a child’s self-worth and even

power because it is an activity that belongs just to them.


The childhood brain is a factor here.   It has been shown that

introducing mediation leads to behavioral improvements in older

ages – middle school and later.


Meditating is a wonderful thing for us adults but also with a child

it gives them a feeling of control and power.


Given the opportunity foo meditate a child or adult is able to

notice actual changes in themselves.  They are calmer, more

centered, less troubled, less tempted to act out.


They are worthwhile in their parents; eyes

Being a good person comes from within

Happiness and fulfillment are natural


The child/adult learns how to be fulfilled and successful life, the

best route is through the spiritual life.  We learn the value of our inner

The world, and as the years pass this value increases until the

realization dawns that all of the existence originates “in here” at the

level of the soul.


What a wonderful outcome you and I are – to find “in here” at the

level of our soul.


We are our childhood – hoping to reach the level we aspire to and

What Does Life Expect from Us?





YOUR lymphatic system touches almost every part of the body.  It

is a network of fluid-filled nodes, vessels, gland, and organs.

Although e do not feel or see it, it is one of the most important

systems of the human body.  It is important to give the lymph

system attention over the years and as YOU age.


The lymphatic system’s main function is to cleanse toxins and

protect against harmful invaders.  It works by carrying waste away

from the tissues and into the bloodstream.  It tackles toxins that

are introduced to the body from both external meas0food, air,

personal care products, water as well as internal ones-damaged

proteins and cellular/metabolic waste.  It is a key detoxification



Through lymph nodes and the lymphatic network, your immune

cells can travel around fighting pathogens, such as bacteria and

mold, and prevent disease and infection.


You have to keep your lymphatic system functioning properly for

your overall health of YOUR body.


The stronger the lymphatic systems mean a more resilient and

reactive immune response and defense

Enzymes are also used utilize by the body to clear toxic waste buildup in the lymph and blood, making their supplementation a key way to improve lymphatic health.



How wonderful does a good massage feel?  I have had lymphatic massage over the years and is a special form of massage that specifically targets the flow of lymph network.



Red clover is a good herb for lymph, increasing flow, which helps to detoxify the body and reduce inflammation.  I make tea from red clover that I buy at a good grocery store.



Take a dry brush with coarse bristle and brush the skin towards the heart.  This stimulates the sweat glands, opens pores, and gets rid of dead skin cells.  Encourages movement of lymph and blood in underlying organs and tissues of the body.

There is always going to be:








And it touches us easy separately and differently because of our







The Spirit of SELFhood in the NOW is always a grand saying.

Live in the NOW.

Enjoy the NOW

Live in the Present

YOU are your yesterdays, todays and the tomorrows so it is

hard and not so hard to stay in the NOW>

Today this Blog will be visiting the book by Eckhart Tolle,

“Practicing “The Power of NOW” – and all of his enlighten on

of the subject of staying in the NOW.

“When your consciousness is directed outward, mind and world



When it is directed inward, it realizes its own Source and returns

home into the Unmanifested”


But, this website is about manifested mind and YOU and YOUR



Tolle does speak of “end the delusion of time and that time and

mind is inseparable.  Remove time from mind and it stops.

Which is true when you sit and meditate – YOU should be able to

feel that time has stopped.  Tolle does say the more you are

focused on time – past and future – the more you miss the NOW,

the most precious thing there is.


I try to live in the NOW – on my own terms but I still enjoy what

Tolle has to say about the NOW in his books.  That is why it is

Important to read and absorb others and reflect how it adds to

ones own life, you sort out what good would work into your own

theory on your own life and philosophy and leave out which will

not improve you to the next level on your journey.


NOW is the most important thing and the most precious thing

there is.  Because it is the only thing, all there this.  There was

ever a time when your life was not now.  And the Now is the only

point that can take you beyond the limited confines of YOUR



This minute is the best minute – and the last minute was good

and were you in that minute as you are in this minute – and into

the next minute.  That is how we live in the NOW – what this

minute brings from the history of you.


Tolle talks about breaking bad habits – which is really, really great

because we all have bad habits and we continually have to work

those bad habits or addictions.   Therefore, from my life lesson on

forgiveness – of SELF and others is one of most beautiful ways to

break bad habits or addictions.


Tolle talks about: “Making it a habit to monitor your mental and

Emotional state through self-observation”

The question he said is “Am I at ease at this moment”?  and that

Is a great question because I have found that I do not go

anywhere, say anything, or do anything where I am not at ease.


WE are the past, the present, and the future.

The past we forgive, remember, and have good thoughts.

The present can be loving, forgiving, and making good memories.

And Plan, stay on Mission, Learn, Read and have intentions of

what YOU will have in the future.








Dr. Karl R.O.S. Johnson, DC talks about in order to maximize

your health and reduce your changes of developing autoimmune

diseases such as Hashimotos, celiac disease, rheumatoid

arthritis, diabetes and other illnesses, it pays to know your blood



Most people pay little attention to their blood type as it seems it is

only important when you are going to have an operation or other

procedures when you might need blood transfusions or when you

are having a baby.


There are 4 blood types, which make up the worlds




O – 45% worlds population

A – 40% world population

B – 11% global population

AB – 4% worlds population


Foods also have substances known as lectins which act upon our

specific blood type to cause various alterations in our body

function such as:


Causing our blood cells to stick together

Trigger body-wide inflammation

Act as insulin by attaching to insulin receptor on cells which leads

to weight gain.

Trigger autoimmune attack

Trigger digestive system malfunction and pain

Creative intestinal damage leading to leaky gut syndrome and as

a result brain inflammation

Interrupt nerve signals in the body and alter levels of

neurotransmitters and thus cause nerve and brain malfunction

leading to ADD and even Alzheimer’s disease.

And many more things
Due to the many health damaging effects various lectins can have

on the health of people with different blood types.


I have used Dr. D’Adamo’s book:

“The Blood Type Diet” for years.

Apparently there are doctor’s that still do not seem to believe

Blood type makes a different in anything concerning our health

I cannot believe that because I believe it makes a huge

difference knowing what our

blood type is and how it affects our blood and particularly

our over-

all health for our life.


Knowing your blood type is an important tool for understanding

how your body reacts to food, your susceptibility to disease, your

natural reaction to stress, and so much more.    A single drop of

blood contains a biochemical makeup as unique to you as your



Let us just look at STRESS and how blood type works:


Type A people naturally have higher levels of the stress hormone

cortisol in their bodies and produce more in response to stressful

situations.  On the other hand, people with type O blood, have a

fight or flight reaction to stress which results in the overproduction

of adrenaline.  It takes type O’s longer to recover from stress

because it is more difficult for them to clear the adrenaline from

their bodies.


See how that works.


Dr. Lam is another Doctor that I have read his website and his

blood type food chart is wonderful and have used that over the

years.  Print it out and tape to your refrigerator.


On Dr. D’Amato’s website is his interview about blood type with

Dr. Oz.

It does all help YOU to build your own TOOLBOX for aging


Happy and Healthy.


Mind is Infinate


Chronic stress increases the stress hormone cortisol and affects

many brain functions, putting you at risk for many mood disorders

and other mental issues.


Stress is an unavoidable part of modern life.


There are two main kinds of stress – acute stress and chronic

stress – and not all stress is bad for you.


Acute stress is the reaction to an immediate threat, commonly

known as the “fight or flight” response.


Once the threat has passed, your level of stress hormones

returns to normal with no long-lasting effects.


Some degree of acute stress is even considered desirable as it

primes your brain for peak performance.


But chronic stress – the kind most of us fact day in, day out – is a


90% of doctors’ visits are for stress-related health complaints.

We are here to help you know the signs and fix the stress in your

life-we cannot solve your stress but helping and giving help

indicators can.


Chronic stress makes you more vulnerable to everything from

cancer to cold.


The non-stop elevation of stress hormones not only makes your

body sick; it negatively impacts your brain as well.


When stress becomes chronic, it changes your brains’ function

and even its structure down to the level of your DNA.


Stress hormones include epinephrine(adrenaline) and

norepinephrine produced on an as needed basis in moments of

extreme excitement.  They help you think and move fast in an

emergency.  They can save your life in the right situation.  The do

not linger in the body, dissipating as quickly as they were created.


Cortisol, on the other hand, streams through your system all day

long, and that is what makes it dangerous.


This stress hormone has been call the most dangerous of all

body, mind, and spirit.  Can lead to healthy problems, including

weight gain, osteoporosis, digestive problems, hormone

imbalances, cancer, heart disease, and diabetes.  And takes a toll

on your adrenal glands.


One of the things I do – I take lithium orates every day

  1. Stress can kill brain cells.
  1. Make you forgetful and emotional
  1. Cycle of fear and anxiety
  1. Halts production of new brain cells
  1. depletes critical brain chemical causing depression
  1. Greater risk for mental illnesses of all kinds
  1. make bad decisions
  1. shrinks your brain
  1. lets toxins into your brain
  1. increases risk of dementia and Alzheimer’s
  1. causes brain cells to commit suicide
  1. contributes to brain inflammation and depression


There are simple steps to help stop stress everyday practicing:

  1. diet high in antioxidant-rich foods.
  1. Physical exercise
  1. meditation or prayer
  1. try self-hypnosis
  1. try herbal and spices have helped me.


I can tell you to:


Challenge SELF


Be Productive every day


Have a Mission every day


Stop putting any man-made products in your body.


Stop buying boxed, bagged, or canned foods.















Do you know how much our Sun affects YOU?

In 1987 Dr. Ross Aidey, White House Chief of Staff for the

Reagan administration, published a scientific paper on

“Cell membranes, electromagnetic fields and intercellular

communication” announcing that about 20 % of pineal cells in

pigeons, guinea-pigs and rats respond to changes in both

direction and intensity of the earth’s magnetic field causing

variation in the peptide hormone melatonin, which powerfully

influences circadian rhythms.


The biological rhythm cycle had already been determined by others

as lasting 28 days in humans, which corresponds exactly the the

sun’s 28 – day period of rotation, as seen from earth.  It became

clear that the sun’s radiation not only determined personality but

controlled behavior of human organism after the moment of birth;

the suns’ fields(Nicolson), which affects the endocrine system

directly(Aidey), causing the pineal gland to regulate the

production of the timing-hormone melatonin throughout the 28-

day period.


The hypothesis that the sun bio regulates behavior through

regulation of the endocrine system through variations in



We each need to understand how much the Sun has affected us

and many civilizations before us and what it looks like:

Professor H.J. Eysenck and D.K.B. Nias report on several studies

of interest about how the sun controls biorhythms:

In 1960, 2 German studies, carried out by R. Reiter, who

analyzed 362,000 industrial accidents over a two-year period,

found an increase of 20-25 % in accident rates on days of strong

electromagnetic radiation.  And 21,000 traffic accidents, came to

the same conclusion.  That on strong electromagnetic radiation of

extra-low frequency variety.  Fewer accidents occurred on days

of high magnetic disturbance as against extra-low-frequency


I love all this research on how the sun and high frequency and

low frequency has affected us over centuries:


Russian historian A. L Chizhevsky collected data from 72

countries from 600 B.C. onwards, comparing the occurrence of

epidemics, wars and social unrest with the occurrence of

sunspot cycles.  He found many correlations of significance,

including one showing the sun influenced behavior of populations,

leading to revolutions and social upheaval.


Russian researchers are the best and love their literature also.

Not that it has made their people any more free – but they do

have a different set of researchers than American does – and

their research may not be made available to their own people.


Exposure to high magnetic frequency from the sun is totally

different from EMF from the electronic equipment we all use daily

– which you need to try to keep far away from your sleeping area

as often as possible.


I will try to find a way to check daily Sun electromagnetic

frequency and add it

to this website and put it on the podcast weekly eventually.  There

is are many issues about the sun that there is research on but we

have to keep writing about the most recent research.

Just be aware that the sun’s electromagnetic field does affect you

and your body every minute of every day.  YOUR moods, your

Endocrinology system and your important pineal gland.




Chakras have been known and used by yoga masters for

thousands of years.  Clairvoyants can see them and there is

growing scientific evidence that supports their existence.  Your

chakras allow you to naturally open up to unconditional love,

personal power, and let go of the things that been holding you

back in your life.


Charka is a Sanskrit word and means wheel and spinning energy

vortices that interact with your auric field.


YOUR charka system has a direct connection to YOUR physical,

emotional and spiritual well being.  Understanding its functions

can help us respond to life with awareness.


Each charka has:

Different frequency

Different color

Relationship with different emotional and spiritual issues

Connection to a different endocrine gland and nerve plexus

Different age at which it develops

Different governing element



Development age is 0 – 3

Endocrine gland – adrenals


Color – red



Development age 3-5 years

Endocrine gland-reproductive glands

Sense – taste

Concerns-intimacy sharing childlike

Color – orange

Soul issue-to experience intimacy with another



Color – yellow

Position – below breast bone

Development age – 8-12

Endocrine gland – pancreas

Sense – sight



Color – green with rose pink

Position – center of the chest

Development age 12- 15 years

Endocrine gland – thymus

Sense – touch

Element – air

Soul issues – to give and receive love without conditions



Color – turquoise

Position – throat

Development age 15 -21 years

Endocrine gland – thyroid

Sense – hearing

Concerns – self expression trust freedom

Soul issues – feel free to speak honestly



Color – indigo blue

Position – above and between the eyes

Endocrine gland – pituitary

Sense – none

Concerns – intuition inspiration

Soul issues-to trust the insights and intuition



Color – violet

Position – top of head

Endocrine gland – pineal

Body symptoms – depression brain disorders


Each charka has its own personality.  They each affect the

energy and the hertz of the body, mind and spirit – which, as you

Can see, everything goes together – it all goes together – YOUR

body, mind and spirit all go together.


There are many benefits of chakra healing and you need to learn

how to work with your chakras









Wear both stereo earplugs otherwise will not work properly.  This is just another item that helps the energy , at the correct harmonics, flow throughout your body to help your WHOLE BODY



Ancient Hawaiian practice of reconciliation and

forgiveness.  I practice it often:    writing down one

of my children’s name or saying it out loud and

then praying:  I am sorry, please forgive me, I love

you, thank you.  I repeat it for at least 10-15 minutes

for that person.  I pray it before I go on auto trip –

touching my car.  I have prayed it in an airplane

when there has been turbulence.

It corrects, restores and maintains good

relationships among family members and their God

by getting to the causes and sources of trouble.

There was a Hawaiian psychiatrist that performed

this with inmates in prison for murder.  The ones

he performed this on were released from prison

because they became good citizens.


Ho’oponopono in 4 simple steps

  1. Repentance –  I AM SORRY
  1. Ask forgiveness  –  PLEASE FORGIVE ME
  1. Gratitude – THANK YOU
  1. Love  –  I LOVE YOU


I  have used Ho’oponopono for years plus I meditate and

Pray also.  I use all the tools I have in my Tool Box.

Deepen YOUR understanding of how the universe and especially

YOUR part of the universe


It is not always easy and can be very stressful on each of us

Individually but accept that we are the sum total of all past

thoughts, emotions, words, deeds and actions and that our

present lives and choices are colored or shaded by this memory

bank of the past, then we begin to ssee how a process of

correcting or setting aright can change our lives, our families and

our society.

How happy are you?

The following are some ways to make SELF happy:

  1. Things cannot make you happy

People cannot make you happy

Only YOU can make YOU happy.

Do you want to be happy?

You may have to give up some of the negative thoughts

You may have to fill those spots with positive thoughts

As humans we are have childhood issues or life issues

No one can be happy 24/7 for life

What do you have to loose to be happy as much as you can?

  1. Take control of YOUR time

Research has shown that people who are able to take

control of their day are happier than people who have no

sense that they can control their day

Stop right now and sit and smile and be happy for 20

seconds.  That is controlling your time and smiling

YOU can control a lot of time throughout YOUR day

  1. Smile

I made it a rule for myself that when I am walking into any

store that I smile at anyone passing me by.

We are all connected – all because of our energy and

because we all are here at the time we are supposed to be

here at this time and in this space.

  1. Find work and activities that you are good at and that

will be meaningful to YOU, I have always done projects:

I have a 2,000 books library – love to read and do research.

I knit baby blankets, knitting my daughter a jacket, made the

boy’s blankets.  I have taken oil painting and have a couple

of nice painting I have done.  I write this blog and truly enjoy

sharing all my research with YOU.

I cannot stress enough but to turn OFF YOUR TV

Get off the phone or computer.  Stop gossiping.

Take classes for anything you enjoy.  I took an algebra class

When I was 65 and loved it and the teacher loved me.

Always learn more, always be happier, always smile.

YOUR peace and harmony as you age will help in

aging healthy and happy.

  1. invest in shared things; vacations, family time, friends

time.  It is sometimes hard not to collect stuff, but I have

accumulated my books, my fabric for sewing, my yard for

knitting, my research papers, so I try to get everything

organized and orderly.  To someone else it is stuff but to

me it is my projects that I am working on.

  1. Always have an exercise program you are working – not

Anything huge like a marathon – if you would like it – do it.

I have a rebounder (you have to order the good ones) and

A stationery bike for the winter months but I do swimming

In the summer to build up my leg muscles.

  1. Have to have enough sleep – 6 – 8 hours a night.
  1. If you have a “small” box – tear down the sides by learning

Something new or do a new project you have done before.

It will make more to your life in learning anything new;

a new thought or a new project.
