One technique I teach is from an old book called You Are Psychic by Pete Sanders, Jr. I talked to someone recently who attended one of his classes. In discussing the technique and I realized I had changed it over time from the way it was presented in Sanders’ book. So I hereby stand corrected: the “think up” technique should be thinking up and with eyes closed looking up towards the top of your head not the mid forehead third eye. It does make a difference, and puts you more into a theta brain state, which, along with the delta brain state, allows easier access to intuition. Sanders recommends this technique especially when you are stuck or stumped.
Speaking of things from the past, does anyone out there have any Fred Kimball stories. He was a communicator, now dead, who had a cult following. People revered him and his accuracy. As far as I can find out he didn’t write anything. The other fascinating pioneer in this field is Beatrice Lydecker. My favorite story about her is that she was on Johnny Carson and told Ed the sidekick, that his cat loved to sit on the frig and swipe his toupee off as he walked by. Ed was reportedly so embarrassed he walked off the stage. Anyone out there have any Beatrice stories? Oh and one more…. did anyone actually watch the David Letterman show when he had Lydia Hiby on and asked her to talk to OJ Simpson’s dog, right after OJ murdered his wife? What did Lydia say the dog said? I ‘ve never been able to find out.
I realized it has been too long since I blogged. Sorry! and I also have no time… finishing a book amongst other things. So this will be short and sweet. Longer blog next month… I promise.
GMO – Watch This!
This movie is up until this coming Saturday, then I’m not sure how you can view it, so catch it in the next few days.
It is a very well done movie on genetically modified food – what’s in it and why it is making us sick. If you have not already done so, go get some organic seeds and start growing your own veggies, even if just in pots on the porch or the window sill. you want a stock of seeds and as much as possible avoid all GMO.
When I tell people they need to switch to organic for themselves and their animals an invariable and immediate response is, “Oh, I try but it’s too expensive.” So I guess organic food has the stigma of being seen as food for rich yuppie types. No, it would be more accurate to think of organic food as the food of those who will still be living.
What’s in That Dog Food?
If you know anyone who feeds Purina send them this.
And if you need some convincing to go to real whole food that link should do it.
Amongst all the bad there are some good things happening
Here is a story sent in by Ann Walker about using an herb to cure her dog.
Nearly three years ago my Koolie dog, Morty, was diagnosed with Anal Furunculosis. (Perianal Fistula) This is a most horrible disease and when the vet told me it was incurable I was appalled. He was given a life expectancy of only 18 months and only then if he was kept on the prescribed drug, Macrolone. He was only 6 years old. I had him at 4 months old and he had always been strong and healthy and, like all his breed, full of boundless energy. Koolies are a working breed similar to working border Collies. I was devastated. The Macrolone turned my super energetic dog into a zombie and there was no visible improvement in his condition. I turned to cyber space and looked up everything I could about the disease. Just as my vet had told me it was found more often in German Shepherds than other breeds and life expectancy was never more than 18 months on drugs. Less without them. I am not a big fan of drugs for myself or my animals so did some research on natural herbal remedies.
My searching mouse found an Australian Veterinarian (I live in Australia) so I emailed him. I had an immediate response telling me he was in America at that moment but advising me to give him Calendula (Marigold) and if possible to use it externally as well as internally. It was, he said, the only thing that would do any good. I went to my local whole food and herb shop and was directed there to a most helpful young woman who was a calendula enthusiast. She sold me a packet of dried flowers and told me to make an infusion and pour some on his food as well as using it externally. At least a months supply cost a mere $7.50. ‘Do you have any growing in your garden?’ she asked. When I told her I did she suggested I use fresh ones but keep the dried ones for any time when none were flowering.
I started treatment immediately and dropped the drugs. Very slowly but equally surely Morty’s condition improved. He celebrates his 9th birthday this month. He is as fit or fitter than he has ever been and has all his old joy in living and boundless energy. I still pour ‘marigold tea’ it on his food and my garden is now ablaze with orange and yellow calendulas.
I am so grateful to the vet who gave me this advice and wish I could thank him. But just at the time when it was obvious Morty was on the mend my computer caught a virus and I had a complete meltdown losing everything including my emails and addresses. I have tried so hard to remember his name and tried everything I can think of to find him to no avail. All I can do is pass on the information so generously and freely given me and hope that by so doing some other dog somewhere may benefit.
Note: I think the herbalist she must have used is Robert McDowell in AU. Here is his website
Further note – Ann has a new book out about communicating with her mule which you might like. Check it out at
