Memories hurt

Do you have an old reoccurring thought or feeling or event in your life that makes you feel sad, hurt or fearful?

Do you know where these are coming from?

Do you often react in a certain situation with an emotion response and have no idea where this response is coming from?

All energy is universal and totally unprejudice. If you feel it it belongs to you

It goes with the old addage of what you see is what you get.

Mirroring what we need to learn

Do you have an old reoccurring thought or feeling or event in your life that makes you feel sad, hurt or fearful?

Do you know where these are coming from?

Do you often react in a certain situation with an emotion response and have no idea where this response is coming from?

All energy is universal and totally unprejudiced. If you feel it the energy belongs to you.

It goes with the old adage of what you see is what you get.

Looking at a person or situation an event whether it is a visit with relatives, seeing one of many wars, the inconsistencies of country leaders or other horrors on TV, it is all a mirror.

What we see as a challenge is a reflection of the universes of emotions and challenges that are found within us. That is the job of the universe to lovingly support us while we peek first then with all honesty look in the mirror, not with horror, but with love and say.

Creator of all of these worlds inside and out, I open myself with love to your guiding inspiration. Let me bring only love and understanding to all that I come in contact with and free me from my own ignorance. I love You. I love and forgive all involved with me now, in the past and the future. Thank you.

If you can think of no others words to say and think simple say
I love you. I forgive you and myself and I am grateful.

Find peace within and you will also experience it without.

Peace.

Take charge of your life

The problems in your life are a reflection of your need to heal yourself.

Begin daily taking the first problem that seems to be bothering you and simply say “I’m sorry. I love this experience. I love me and you.” Turn the problem over to the Divine Source who or whatever you call It. Everything can be harmonizes with the Divine connetion.

Energetic Footprint – Making Your Life Count

Living, thriving, biological systems thrive on interdependence.  Interdependence ensures the progression of all species. The world’s integrated systems are bogged down in dominance, greed and self protection, if living only to take care of self and not nurturing or caring a twit for either the insects or the people around the neighborhood much less around the world from you.

The strength of our being as a whole living entity is dependent on fostering more interdependence, not to be considered the same as the one-world economy that is being encouraged now. That system sounds like a good idea, but is causing much suffering around the world.

It is true we are all one and the same; however, each of us has a unique role to play and serve while on this earth. If big business or big medicine is allowed to continue to run the planetary game as those wayward souls see fit and we allow it, then our biological, physiological, sociological and psychological integrity and strength will continue to weaken.

Without support for those people, plants, animals, insects and the general diversity of life, none of us will be blogging for long.  Robustness of the world’s health depends on each of us increasing in quality and quantity our energetic support and respect for all things big and small and to stand up and be counted.

Talk and support each other and teach your children they are worth the best we can be.

 You  are invited to share the way you are increasing your energetic footprint and modeling your robustness.

Lack of Respect for Nature's Boundaries

Worsened Midwest Flooding

When We Reign, It Pours
Humans Have a Hand in Midwest Flooding
June 19, 2008

“How much responsibility do humans have for the floods disastrously deluging the Midwest? Of course the rain poured for days, but it fell on plowed up prairies, drained fields, altered streams, no-longer-wetlands, and developed flood plains — all unable to absorb precipitation to the best of their natural ability. Between 2007 and 2008, more than 160,000 acres of Iowa land (mostly covered with deep-rooted, water-absorbing grasses) was taken out of a federal conservation-reserve program to be farmed (mostly for corn).  Near St. Louis MO nearly 30,000 homes have been built on land that was submerged by flooding in 1993; despite taller, stronger levees — which some say are part of the problem, not the solution — the area may very well be swamped again as floodwaters roll south. “Cities routinely build in the flood plain,” says Kamyar Enshayan, a city councilmember in Cedar Falls, Iowa. “That’s not an act of God; that’s an act of City Council.” – www.grist.com

Did Western Medicine Fail Tim Russert?

Wednesday, June 18, 2008

“The shocking death of Tim Russert last Friday has left an entire nation wondering what happened. He was a model patient, doing everything his doctors asked. All major media have run articles trying to explain the nuances and difficulties in treating coronary artery disease. These articles find little fault in Russert’s care, trying to create the idea that his heart attack was just too hard to predict and that all that could have been done for him was done.

I beg to differ. His death represents the failure of standard medical care to produce a positive result – an occurrence that is all too common in today’s world. ”  Read more.

Canada's Bill C-51 Will it Outlaw Vit C OTC?

Vitamin C About to be Made Illegal in Canada!

by Joseph Mercola MD

C-51, C51, Canada, the Trilateral Union, the North American Union, NAU, laws, supplements, natural health products, illegal.  What if, just for taking vitamin C, you could be thrown in jail for up to 2 years and fined up to $5,000,000?

For many, this sounds inconceivable.  Surely someone is misinterpreting the proposed law?

After hours of cross-checking, I must admit, I’m still a bit confused about its true potential ramifications.

In reading the proposed law itself, the statements above appear to be potentially accurate interpretations. Ditto on the dire predictions made by www.Stop51.com.

And although the Canadian government’s site, Healthy Canadians, claims that none of the above statements are true, it offers very little in terms of guidance on just how and why the law doesn’t mean what it says.

Why Should Americans Care?

If you’re one of the millions of people in Canada, the United States or Mexico, who has never heard of the Trilateral Union, the North American Union (NAU), or Codex, I’m afraid you may be in for a quite a surprise. But don’t feel bad, neither of our respective governments or major media outlets are speaking publicly or frankly about these plans.

These issues are far too broad and deep to go into in this article, but they are the reasons why you should care about this law passing in Canada, even if you don’t live there now – because in the foreseeable future the borders between our three countries might disappear.

If you’re reading this newsletter you obviously have access to the internet, so just Google “North American Union” or “Codex” and you’ll get more than 74.6 million and 13 million hits respectively on these two topics.

You can also search my website for previous articles on Codex and what these international food and supplement standards may mean for the future of nutritional supplements.

If being an informed citizen matters to you, don’t let these topics slip under your radar – they have the power to change our respective countries and our ways of life in more ways than you could imagine.

What Does Codex Have to Do With C-51?

To answer that question we have to back up a couple of paces and start with a quick explanation of what Codex is.

The Codex Alimentarius Commission, conceived by the United Nations in 1962, was birthed through a series of relationships between The World Health Organization (WHO), the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), the World Trade Organization (WTO) as well as the American FDA and USDA.

The Codex Alimentarius itself is a compilation of food standards, codes of practice and guidelines that specify all requirements related to foods (whether processed, semi-processed, genetically engineered, or raw). Their purpose is to protect consumers’ health, ensure fair business practices within the food trade, and eliminate international food trade barriers by standardizing food quality.

Sounds good in theory, right?

However, the two most potentially dangerous prospects of Codex are: 1) these standards are being devised as international rules intended for world-wide adoption, and 2) Codex has classified nutrients as toxins.

Yes, toxins. That’s not a misprint.

The Codex Commission decided—with the support of the United States—to use something called Risk Assessment, which assesses the maximum level of a substance – in this case a nutrient — that may be ingested without causing any discernable biological effect.

Did you get that one? Let me explain further.

Risk Assessment is a branch of Toxicology, a.k.a. the science of toxins (as opposed to the science of nutrition). In a sane world, it is used to assess how much of a toxic substance you can safely eat without noticing any physical effects or problems. As soon as there is a biological effect, you have hit the upper, maximum limit for that substance.

Codex is slowly but surely shimmying into position to mandate the universal maximum “safe” level of every vitamin, mineral, supplement and herb that may legally be manufactured, used or sold — with “safe” being a level that has no physical effect.

So, what does this have to do with Canada’s potential adoption of C-51?

Well, C-51 also amends the Canadian law to allow trade agreements to become law without Parliamentary approval, and for the regulation to incorporate documents produced by a foreign state or subdivision of a foreign state.

What that means is that the Codex treaty could become Canadian law without Parliamentary approval simply by passing a regulation saying it is now part of the Canadian regulations.

If the Codex rules become the law of the land in Canada, the safety of supplements might become judged on the toxicology scale, and if Canada has these laws in place when the NAU becomes reality – guess what? The U.S. and Mexico may have little choice but to fall under the same umbrella of laws and standards.

And, even if you refuse to believe that the North American Union will ever take place, passing similar, potentially restricting natural health laws in the U.S. will be a whole lot easier if Canada sets the precedent.

The Fine Art of Double-Speak

The Canadian law, known as C-51, was introduced by the Canadian Minister of Health on April 8th, 2008, proposing far-reaching changes to Canada’s Food and Drug Act. The question on everyone’s mind is whether or not it might have devastating consequences on the health products industry.

According to the government website Healthy Canadians, Canadians will continue to have access to natural health products that are safe, effective and of high quality, and claims that:

*
Natural health products will not be regulated as pharmaceutical drugs; they will continue to be regulated under their own regulations – separate from drugs and foods.
*
Bill C-51 will not increase the costs of natural health products.
*
Bill C-51 does not regulate growing an herb garden.
*
Bill C-51 does not target practitioners who compound products for their patients.
*
Bill C-51 does not target Canadians’ personal use of natural health products.
*
Health food stores will not require a special license to sell natural health products.
*
Canadians will not require a prescription from a doctor for natural health products.

However, the site also makes somewhat confusing statements like:

“Under Bill C-51 the term ‘therapeutic products’ encompasses a range of products sold for therapeutic purposes, including drugs, medical devices, biologics, and natural health products. This does not change the classification of a natural health product nor impose additional requirements.”

Personally, I’ve not been able to sort out why or how a natural health product — if now lumped together with drugs under the term ‘therapeutic products’ — would not change its classification, and why they would not have to abide by the same rules as all other ‘therapeutic products.’

The Power of Words

One of the most opposed changes is this radical alteration to key terminology, including replacing the word “drug” with “therapeutic product,” which is the same term used for all natural products as well.

To get a better idea of the many questions and confusing pitfalls this law change brings to fore, I recommend reading the NHPPA Draft Discussion Paper on Bill C-51.

Clearly, I’m not the only one who can’t make heads or tails out of this legislative doublespeak, and the paper (written by a defense attorney specializing in the Food and Drugs Act) succinctly points out the power of language and key words in legislative debate.

For example, the old definition of “sell” is:

“includes the offer for sale, expose for sale, have in possession for sale and distribute, whether or not the distribution is made for consideration.”

That’s clear. In fact, I think most of us have a decent idea of what “selling” means. The NEW definition of “sell,” however, opens the door for a very broad interpretation:

“includes offer for sale, expose for sale or have in possession for sale, or distribute to one or more persons, whether or not the distribution is made for consideration and in relation to a device, includes lease, offer for lease, expose for lease or have in possession for lease.”

Now, what’s the reason for redefining the meaning of the word “sell” to include the simple act of “distributing to one or more persons”? Who does this new meaning benefit? Who does this now include that was not included before? Why the need for such a broad definition?

In plain English, it appears the law now applies if I were to simply give something to another person for free, whether it’s a stranger or a family member.

More Questionable Interpretations

Another interesting rebuttal by the Canadian government is the issue of whether or not an inspector would be allowed to enter private property without permission or a warrant.

The Healthy Canadian site states, “Inspectors will not be able to enter a private home without permission or a warrant.”

And yet the law, Section 23 (4), clearly reads: An inspector who is carrying out their functions may enter on or pass through or over private property without being liable for doing so and without the owner of the property having the right to object to that use of the property.

Since when does “without the right to object” mean that they have to ask for permission or present a warrant?

What Can You Do?

I don’t pretend to know or understand the full potential implications of this proposed law.  However, if — after reading through the many source links I’ve included in this comment — you believe that C-51 is a law that is not in your and your family’s best interest, you can make your voice heard by signing the StopC51 petition”.  -Dr. Mercola

Irritation 1st AID

So “He/or she makes you upset, angry, depressed?”

Let’s journey inward and do a check up from the abdomen up and try this exercise.

  • Follow the feel of irritation, anger, hurt etc.
  • As you quietly follow that emotion inside yourself, what feels tight, closed up …?
  • Now breathe deeply and slowly and go inside that area of your body and sense the colors that are there, listen to the sounds and voice or images that arise.
  • Just observe without getting involved.
  • What color is needed to make this scene calmer. What words would the people involved need to be saying to each other?  Add that color and new words and watch the scene closely.
  • Continue to breathe deeply.
  • Give yourself permission to change that scene to make it more peaceful and loving.
  • After you have changed the situation – relax
  • In the future every time you think of of this situation see the calming scene and it will reinforce the changes that have been put in place energetically.

You can change your life for the better one breath at a time.

Forgiveness

“When the violin
Can forgive the past

It starts singing
When the violin can stop worrying about the future

You will become such a drunk laughing nuisance
That God will then lean down
And start combing you into His Hair.

When the violin can forgive
Every wound caused by Others

The heart starts Singing”
