Why I’m Hopeful… Our Golden Opportunity

The Covid-19 virus is giving us a golden opportunity to look at the way we live our lives, and the way the world functions. We shouldn’t want to return to normal, because normal didn’t work.

I hope we’ll all come out of this with a new commitment to live well on every level.

One of my favorite recent Facebook memes is:

“Kinda feeling like the earth just send us all to our rooms

to think about what we’ve done.” Luxepunk on Facebook

Sleep: Your life depends on it!

1 in 3 Americans aren’t getting adequate sleep at night. According to The National Sleep Foundation, adults 26-64 should plan to get a solid 7-9 hours  each night and anyone above the age of 65 should get at least 7-8 hours. 

Getting a good night’s sleep is easier said than done, but it can be dangerous for your health and wellness if you don’t make it a priority. Sleep can improve your personal and professional life, your creativity, your decision making, your personal relationships, and so much more – it can even help you live longer.

Do You Live In Linear Time or Natural Time? Why It Matters

Do you live in linear time, or natural time? Do you know the difference? Which is better for your physical and spiritual health? Today’s blog/podcast tells us the answer.

Traditional indigenous people the world over speak the language of spirit – what I mean by that is they knew how to have a two-way communication with the natural world around them, because they live in natural time.

Connect with the cosmos with the Piko Piko Breath

Kahunas, the shamanic practitioners of Hawaii, use the Piko Piko Breath to both relax and energize the body. It can work for anyone, and can give a real sense of the expansiveness of the universe.

The word “Piko” means center, or naval.

Before Kahunas meditate or pray they use this breath to build up their Mana (Power) to get focused and in the right frame of mind for whatever they are about to undertake, particularly healing.

The Sacred Art of Smudging: Sacred Smoke, Sacred Life

Many people have heard of “smudging,” and may even practice it, but there’s great value in knowing its history, and understanding the true sacredness of it.

There are three primary herbs used in the Native American tradition for smudging: sage, cedar and sweetgrass.

Sage is used to dispel negative energy.

Cedar is used for an overall blessing or to cleanse where there has been illness.

Sweetgrass draws in positive energy.

I have been taught the importance of burning only one herb at a time for smudging, otherwise you are giving mixed messages.

Sage is the most commonly used for cleansing the energy field of a person, place or thing, so I will focus on it for this post.

Water is Sacred. Why are we poisoning it?

It is the first thing we use every morning, and the last thing we use every night.

It allows us to thrive, and plants, trees and our food to grow. It is essential to all life.

And yet we poison it at every turn:

It’s reported that at the Rio Olympics, swimmers need to ingest only three teaspoons of water to contract a virus. Rio de Janeiro waterways are contaminated with raw human sewage teeming with dangerous viruses and bacteria.

14 billion pounds of garbage, mostly plastic, is dumped into the ocean each year, killing sea life. In January, 2016, thirteen sperm whales washed up dead in Germany, their stomachs full of plastic and auto parts.
