I had heard about this legendary chair from 6-year-old Skye’s mom, but I’d never seen it until yesterday in front of Ignition Garage (music shop and venue) in Goshen. Wise beyond his years, Skye shares an important reminder for all of us, whether Visionary Artist or Reality Creator:
First of all, I completely support the right of each person to decide what to do with his or her own body, even if that decision involves medical abuse, belief in treacherous “sickness” care rather than healthcare, or gross misunderstanding of the connections among diet, lifestyle, spirituality, and health. I support an individual’s choice to do what they will to and with their own body, because I want to retain that right for myself.
When I see Congress pushing through not only the Monsanto Protection Act but now trying to make it illegal for states to have their own GMO labeling laws, I get mad. When I see the EU making anything but genetically engineered seed illegal to save, share or sell, I want to scream. When I see armed forces attacking and shutting down innocent Amish farmers for selling or sharing their grass-fed, certified organic raw milk with informed customers or herd-share owners, coupled with the US Dairy industry petitioning the FDA to change the definition of “milk” to include the chemical weapon known as “aspartame” so that they don’t need to label it, I am, frankly, disgusted.
Not as disgusted as I am with the idea of human-hybrid genetically engineered cow milk, or human-hybrid GMO rice, but yes, disgust, outrage and revulsion … the complete gag reflex … are in order here. When talk of “mandatory vaccines” creeps into the conversation, the phrase “over my dead body” almost involuntarily escapes my lips. At the very least, I want to maintain my own rights to my own body even if the Supreme Court disagrees, and so I completely respect Angelina Jolie’s right to choose a “preemptive” double mastectomy and ovary removal due to her expressed fears of a genetic predisposition to cancer.
However … if you are a woman concerned about breast cancer, please do not turn to the mainstream media or Hollywood for the properly programmed response to your own health concerns. I’m not a doctor. I’m not giving medical advice here, but please, please, please educate yourself on alternatives. There are so many options out there, from alternative to preventative to complementary to stories of completely spiritual, spontaneous healings. Dr. Bruce Lipton has proven in scientific studies that DNA does not even offer the last word in healing. The Biology of Belief trumps genetic predisposition to anything. Gregg Braden has also demonstrated the incredible — some would say miraculous — healing power of the Heart. Sunshine and Vitamin D offer natural prevention and a documented cure for cancer. You can read about that here and all over the internet, if you look for it.
People have cured themselves from cancer using raw food, juice fasts, hemp oil, chaga, pau d’arco, meditation, hands on healing, Reiki, and all manner of natural remedies and emotional/spiritual solutions. You can find that information if you seek it … just not on the mainstream news or in traditional medical circles.
In addition to learning about cancer cure options and cancer prevention, please educate yourselves on the corporate shenanigans and pending Supreme Court case related to Angelina Jolie’s timely announcement. Mike Adams of Natural News has written a series of articles detailing not only the futility of lopping off body parts as a guarantee against cancer (which is a systemic illness and imbalance not restricted to any single organ or body part), but he has also revealed the connection between Jolie’s announcement and: attacks on women and their bodies, record profits for the breast cancer gene test, Obamacare funding for this test, and a Supreme Court case deciding the fate of patenting human genes.
Yes, there’s a Supreme Court case deciding the fate of patenting human genes. Does that creep you out as much as it creeps me out? Did you even fathom it was an issue? From Natural News:
“The ACLU and the Public Patent Foundation filed a lawsuit in 2009, challenging the corporate ownership of human genes. Anyone who believes in women’s rights, human rights, civil rights or even the right to eat non-GMO foods should immediately agree that corporations should NOT be able to patent human genes and then use those patents to rake in billions of dollars in profits while stifling scientific research into those genes.
“A question to all women reading this: Do you believe a corporation in Utah owns your body? If not, you should be opposed to corporate ownership of human genes. It also means you should oppose Angelina Jolie’s P.R. campaign because although she’s running a brilliant public relations campaign, behind the scenes her actions are feeding potentially trillions of dollars of profits directly into the for-profit human gene patenting industry that denies human beings ownership over their own genetic code.
“‘The ACLU explains the basics of its lawsuit against Myriad Genetics as follows:
‘On May 12, 2009, the ACLU and the Public Patent Foundation (PUBPAT) filed a lawsuit charging that patents on two human genes associated with breast and ovarian cancer, BRCA1 and BRCA2, are unconstitutional and invalid. On November 30, 2012, the Supreme Court agreed to hear argument on the patentability of human genes. The ACLU argued the case before the U.S. Supreme Court on April 15, 2013. We expect a decision this summer.
‘On behalf of researchers, genetic counselors, women patients, cancer survivors, breast cancer and women’s health groups, and scientific associations representing 150,000 geneticists, pathologists, and laboratory professionals, we have argued that human genes cannot be patented because they are classic products of nature. The suit charges that the gene patents violate the First Amendment and stifle diagnostic testing and research that could lead to cures and that they limit women’s options regarding their medical care.’
“Got that? If the Supreme Court rules against Myriad Genetics, it will cause a multi-billion-dollar breast cancer genetic testing industry to collapse virtually overnight. This means a huge loss for not just Myriad, but also many other human gene corporations that wish to exploit the human body — including the bodies of women — for monopolistic profits. (All patents are government-granted monopolies.) Ultimately, trillions of dollars in corporate gene patents are at stake here.
Patenting human genes is huge business.”
[Laura again:] To put all of this into more of a metaphysical context, today’s primary freedom issues are not just about debt slavery. Yes, the big banks and big corporations currently own our government, our Strawman SS#’s, our income (via taxes) and our property … but at last count, *only* 20% of human genes have been patented. Yes, creepy though that is, we still retain the rights to 80% of our own DNA. If the current trend continues, though, then the big corporations won’t just own all seed (and by extension all food), but they will own every single part of life. The seeds, the water, the air, the land, and most importantly: you. Why do you think they want all that brain mapping? Hint: it’s not to foster excellence. It’s all about control. Mind control. Emotional control. Preemptive criminal profiling. Thought Police. Sound paranoid? It is. And rightfully so. As humans, we are body and soul. An overarching force wants complete control of both. Brave New World and 1984 all rolled into one.
Angelina Jolie, God/dess bless her, has a history of either knowingly or unknowingly shilling for a certain perverted and overarching agenda of control. We live in a world that desperately needs a return of the Divine Feminine, because we live in an impotent patriarchy gone mad. A world run by psychopaths who behave like the very cancer cells they claim to kill. Look at the patterns of Monsanto, Big Banks, Big Government, and Big Pharma — and now, compare Big Brother to the way that cancer spreads. Cancer is an unnatural mutation that does not know when to stop replicating itself. Cancer creates and consumes without restraint and without regard for life itself. Like all parasites, cancer willingly kills its host, because it cannot grasp the fact that by killing the host, it eventually kills itself. Cancer rapidly creates perversions of natural, healthy, balanced cells. Contrast this with Mothers and their willingness to nurture and love their children. Contrast this with the Divine Feminine that nurtures the Land and her children — all her children — into healthy balance.
Breasts and ovaries symbolically represent the creative force made manifest in the female human body. Jolie’s announcement, right after Mother’s Day, and coming at a time when we so desperately need nurturing rather than aggressive preemptive attacks and control (Libya, Syria, Iraq??) … this announcement and the insidious effect it has already had on public opinion makes me very sad.
If you have already had a mastectomy, I mean no condemnation or misunderstanding of your journey. My mom had breast cancer when I was 13 years old, and the domino effects of her journey have deeply shaped my own life. Let’s just say, my cancer survivor mom doesn’t have the only scars from that experience. In 2006, I lost my best friend to breast cancer. She had embarked on a natural program of wheat grass juice and vegan foods and was improving so much that her doctor feared “her toxic chemo wouldn’t take.” At her doctor’s recommendation, Leigh “backed off the wheat grass juice and dietary changes until she finished her course of chemo.” She died within two weeks. My 36-year-old cousin Erin passed last October from metasticized breast cancer treated by all the “newest and best advances” in chemotherapy and radiation. She died with a body and brain full of holes, burns and toxic chemicals, leaving a young daughter and grieving family.
I had my own aggressive breast cancer scare in 2002, which I managed to shift with lifestyles changes and spiritual healing that resulted in a “shockingly benign” lumpectomy. I get it. I know the lines grow blurry when people quote statistics or play on your emotions. I also know that if you’re not ready to make all the necessary lifestyle shifts in the short window available, then some combination of dietary, alternative and traditional medical intervention can extend your life long enough to make the bigger shifts. I have spoken with dozens and dozens of breast cancer survivors as clients and friends, as well as supported clients through the process of dying when, for a variety of reasons, they chose not to invoke any alternatives. The soul continues beyond this body, but they are lovers. We can nurture that relationship or initiate the great divorce. By incarnating, we agree to become spiritual beings having a human experience. I’m simply lobbying that we remember “choice.” I also want to protect the choices we still have by pointing out propaganda, mind control, agendas, disempowerment, misinformation, and emotional blackmail.
I know this article may deeply anger some people, but please know, we are at war for the very survival of the human race. Please take the time to situate Angelina Jolie’s announcement in context of the bigger issues facing our planet and our species. Solutions exist, but these solutions involve a return to Nature, not the further manipulation of humans and Nature into synthetic machines. Alexander Barry places the current dynamic into a spiritual/metaphysical/historical perspective. You can find his videos here. You can also read an earlier article I wrote called “Breast Health: Some Medical Intuitive Observations.” We face extreme challenges, but we came here as souls knowing we had the potential to heal and to create a better world. We have the strength of a Mother’s Love … Mother Earth, all the Mother Goddesses, and the nurturing, loving, mothering aspect in all of us. Let’s love each other. And ourselves. Let’s love our planet.
Another weekly update from Kaypacha: this one gives some interesting mythological insights into Uranus, mandates a hard look at what’s happening in and to our world, and winds up on a freer note, as the Sun moves into Gemini early next week.
On my end, I definitely feel energy building towards … something. This Sunday marks the 15th anniversary of my life-changing car accident and brain injury, and next Wednesday I turn the big 4-0. I have so many things I’d like to begin, but I keep getting the message, “Wait until next week.” “Rest.” “Relax.” “Enjoy the lull.”
We Gemini’s find it difficult to sit still, especially on sunny days. When I try to pack more things into my day, they mysteriously all reschedule themselves for later next week. All of which is to say that I very much enjoyed Kaypacha’s report this week. I, too, feel the changes brewing. I would say, “Let’s do this!” but for me, right now, apparently, it’s: “Wait for it … wait for it … wait … wait … wait … and … boom! Now, hit the ground running.”

Two categories of people tend to call me for Medical Intuitive Sessions: those who’ve been injured and/or ill for many years (sometimes decades) with no effective diagnosis and/or treatment … and those people who keep top notch tabs on their health and already know that every physical ailment has a mental, emotional, spiritual or energetic trigger. The second group tends to call very early in their health journey, usually right after their own arsenal of natural remedies and meditations fails to bring relief.
Lately, I’ve received many calls from a third category of clients, and I attribute this to the increased Awakening on our planet. These clients also exhibit “medical mystery” symptoms, but, unlike the first group, they’ve only been ill or injured for weeks rather than years. Unlike the second group, they’ve never consulted a Medical Intuitive or “psychic” before, but “something just tells” them that they need to expand their thinking about these health issues. I love these sessions, because I can feel the gears start turning as people discover how their body partners with their soul in order to bring about the deepest levels of healing. I love watching their upper chakras suddenly light up with understanding and expansion.
Today’s post is a hodgepodge of things I’ve noticed in nearly 12 years of professional Medical Intuitive work. I thought I’d share some common observations and tips that don’t seem to have reached the mainstream. As always, I am not legally allowed to diagnose or prescribe, and nothing in this blog or in my sessions constitutes medical advice. I’m simply sharing what buzzes across my intuition or patterns I’ve recognized in the past decade plus of intriguing work.
1) Lyme Disease has some truly unexpected manifestations. People call it “the great imitator” for a reason! Since the Lyme spirochetes attack the weakest points in the body, symptoms vary widely. Some common (in my line of work) complaints from people who turn out to have confirmed Lyme Disease that eventually responds to treatment and lifestyle changes include: extreme TMJ; persistent jaw, gum or tooth infections; major food sensitivities and severely compromised intestinal health; heart palpitations; inexplicable sensitivity to salt; Bell’s Palsy; extreme EMF sensitivity; uncharacteristic bursts of difficult to control rage; and a creeping malaise even though “life is going well.”
This is by no means a comprehensive list, nor does it mean that these symptoms necessarily indicate LD. In the absence of other explanations or treatment, though, it’s a reasonable question for people to ask themselves and their treatment providers. Awareness has grown so that more well-known Lyme symptoms like achy joints, chronic fatigue, the bulls-eye rash, and irregular immune response will sometimes flag LD. I’ve found the above symptoms just as strong, if not more so, indicators of LD.
2) Lyme Disease, like every illness, has a specific energetic signature and personality/spiritual profile. I’ve previously written about spiritual and natural healing of Chronic Lyme Disease. You can read that article (and dozens of comments) by clicking here. Please know that for every person who comments on the blog, I tend to receive three or four private emails expressing how that article exactly sums up their life just prior to getting Lyme, as well as their current journey. I’ve also had countless clients find me through that article, and they’ve all shared corroborating details as well. Not everyone exposed to Lyme or the co-infections develops Chronic Lyme Disease. If you recognize yourself in that profile and have some of the symptoms in #1, then that increases the value of exploring LD as a possible physical cause.
3) Swaddling: not just for infants! Variants of the old practice of calming babies down by wrapping them tightly in a blanket work for adults as well. The psoas muscle holds much of our traumatic experiences — in this life, and other lifetimes, too. You can read about that here, and see a photo of “Constructive Rest Position,” which helps to release the psoas. Less known is the fact that you can take a yoga strap or belt, wrap it around the thighs and gently support them in their release. This allows deeper relaxation, since you expend no energy in keeping your legs from flopping open.
I call the next swaddling option the “Al Bundy,” since it involves resting your hands on your hipbones while lying down, sliding those hands slightly under the waist of your pants. The slight constriction of fabric acts like the yoga belt, gently supporting your arms so that they can completely release the neck and trapezius muscles. You might initially feel weird doing this pose so reminiscent of Married with Children, but if you suffer chronic neck pain, you’ll find yourself greatly rejuvenated after sleeping that way.
People suffering from anxiety or insomnia may also find comfort in tightly wrapping themselves in a blanket, if possible having someone else “tuck in” the sides underneath the arms and legs. Other techniques that can help with overwhelm include lying on the stomach (to cover the heart and solar plexus chakras) while placing a pillow over the crown of the head. The covering of these areas shuts down the zapping and buzzing so many people complain about with solar flares, empathic assaults, or racing mind at night.
4) Autistic children are more advanced than what society calls “normal.” We can learn from them. I’ve written on this before here. RMN also posted a series of videos featuring Jacob Barnett, an autistic teenager genius who promises to “prove Einstein wrong.” You can find a bunch of Jacob Barnett videos by clicking here. Note how his mother searched for and fostered his gifts. I’ve had clients with autistic and Asperger’s children who turned out to be able to see and communicate with faeries and the dead. I’ve also encountered many highly advanced souls masquerading as autistic children just so that they could have the chance to devote themselves to the one or two items of most interest in this lifetime.
In sharing the gifted nature of autistic children, I in no way mean to minimize the horrors of vaccine damage, the frustration of parents, or the isolation that comes from autism and Asperger’s. I’m simply indicating that gifts exist. They can be found and nurtured. Souls seek healing and expression. Given the chance, they will amaze parents, expose the failures and limitations of our education system, and return us to more natural (now called supernatural) ways of experiencing our Universe.
5) When one chakra is imbalanced, it pays to look at the opposite chakra on the color wheel. I find that imbalances tend to occur in pairs. Second chakra (orange) issues tend to occur in connection with throat and/or third eye (blue) issues. Root chakra problems (red) almost always connect with a need for heart chakra (green) healing, and I have yet to find anyone with solar plexus problems (yellow) who doesn’t have a corresponding imbalance in the crown chakra (purple). Most people who dabble in mind-body-spirit healing research all the issues and affirmations connected to whatever chakra corresponds with their biggest complaint. Faster relief may come from treating the opposite color chakra issues first, or at least in conjunction with the primary spot in need of healing.
That’s it for today’s installment of things that make you go hmmm… . Please feel free to share via comments any “counter-intuitive” or unusual correspondences you’ve discovered or observed. Many blessings and much healing!
Some good tips and guidelines for working with the faeries:
We live in a world in which clean water continues to become the number one issue for planetary and human survival. In some states, it’s now illegal to collect your own rainwater, and many other areas have water restrictions due to droughts, not to mention all the industrial and toxic BigAg run-off in our lakes and streams. I present the following videos as eye-openers to help people realize there are other ways. By thinking outside the box, we can reuse, recycle, and even clean water, all while helping to restore natural habitats and growing high quality, nutritious food!
Thanks to Mitch for bringing my attention to this BBC tour and study of Natural Swimming Pools:
Thanks to Bill for sending me to the Aquaponics and Vertical Gardening channel:
I don’t eat fish, but I’ve been getting nudged a lot about Aquaponics as something for the cities of Goshen and Elkhart to explore to ensure greater food sovereignty and sustainability. Interestingly, last week at the Future of Food symposium at Notre Dame’s Nanovic Institute, David and I ran into an Elkhart activist who bridges the gap between lower income people and opportunities for local food; he’s been getting the exact same nudge.
At the same symposium, we heard Will Allen talk about how Growing Power uses Aquaponics as a closed system in which fish waste fertilizes plants while other plants clean the water. David and I had the privilege to speak privately with Will for about 15 minutes during which he signed a copy of his amazing book (I’ll review that later), and clued us into some of his upcoming projects. He is truly an inspiration and one of the most compassionate and innovative people I’ve ever met:
Growing Power has a large scale Aquaponics facility, but you can also practice small scale aquaponics in your own yard, basement or home:
For those people not interested in swimming pools or fish, but who want to reuse their grey water, here are two tours around a $15,000 self-sufficient home called Sandgarden. The first is an artsy-er youtube tour and description of grey water treatment that gives you more of a feel for the system in context of lived experience:
The more technical tour and description of waste and grey water at Sandgarden gives more specifics on the how’s and why’s:
In the past, I’ve mentioned Gaia’s Garden as a fabulous permaculture resource. Indeed, this permaculture classic includes lists of plants and ways to plan your own three stage grey water purification system/rain garden. As the Hopi say, “We are the ones we are waiting for.”
