Have you experienced the shifting of energy within yourself or in your environment from the transformation into 2013?
Are you experiencing more and or different emotions? Every cell of our bodies are mini bio-computers...each cell is like a tiny body that is governed by our emotionally charged thoughts (which form our beliefs over time).
As cosmic energies are more perceptible by us humans, we must have the ability to process and interpret the significance of these waves of energy if we are to ride the cosmic waves into the magnificent future we are co-creating for ourselves.
You may be feeling more deeply than ever before, or maybe you are feeling different emotions than you've ever felt. If feelings of anger or resentment or frustration keep coming up for you, with your relationships, your career, your money, your health, just know that these are here for you to gain something profound and empowering. An insight or a lesson is hidden within each of these emotions, for you to unlock and reveal.
If you can take the time each day to SIT QUIETLY and listen and feel what your body has to say, you can begin interpreting experiences or situations in a new light! New interpretations create new feelings, which in turn fertilizes the field of energy for new experiences!
Life is all about perspective...and when we can see traumas and abuses and situations or experiences, that once brought fear or resentment into our gut, as opportunities for MORE LOVE, more PEACE and more FORGIVENESS, we take back our power - WE EMPOWER OURSELVES with the energy and awareness to heal ourselves from the inside out.
We are equipped with everything we need to heal our bodies - there is no food, doctor, medicine, shaman, healer, herb or program that will heal us directly. WE ARE OUR OWN HEALERS... And yes going to classes and going through new programs and reading books, and taking herbs are all fun and great, however YOU are the one that makes the decision to allow yourself to experience healing and transformation from frustration or fear to FORGIVENESS, Harmony and LOVE!
Remember you create ALL experiences and people and situations in your life, and until you own this reality you will constantly blame others and give away your power to be the director and creator of your own life. Instead of watching television - how about Tell-Your-Own-Vision. The more you use your imagination and visualize the life you are wanting (even for 3 minutes a few times a day) you will begin to take control over your life experience and begin creating your life consciously.
“Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited to all we now know and understand, while imagination embraces the entire world, and all there ever will be to know and understand.”
~ Albert Einstein
Are you AWARE of what you are thinking and feeling?
This can be one of the most difficult things to master: being aware of your thoughts and emotions. Our thoughts are so distant and invisible that it can be very difficult, at times, to be aware of them - especially once you are out in the world and off of your meditation cushion.
Remember when you start to experience a situation that brings up challenging emotions that those emotions are there to show you something about yourself - you might be clearing very old programs from your childhood about how you respond to certain things, or it could even be DNA programs that you have taken on from your distant relatives. Whatever the cause - it's a great idea, if you want to be FREE, to take conscious note of the emotions that arise, and sit with them and ask "why have I created this for myself. AND LISTEN. Journal. And let go and let GOD.
Your body knows everything. Your mind and programs can get in the way, unless you make a relaxed effort to AFFIRM and DECREE that YOU are now going to decide a new program and rise above to a higher level or perception - so that you can allow the most AMAZING and PROFOUND experiences into your reality!
You Are LOVED, Adored and Appreciated beyond measure!

Therapeutic-grade essential oils are most often extracted via a low-heat steam distillation process in which steam is circulated under pressure through plant material liberating the essential oils into the steam. As the steam mixture cools, the water and oils naturally separate and the oil is collected in its pure form. To ensure the highest quality oil extract of correct chemical composition, temperature and pressure must be monitored very closely. Too little heat and pressure will not release valuable oil while too much can change an extract's composition and potency. As important as the carefully controlled extraction process is, the careful selection of the correct plant and plant parts harvested at the right time is also required for a successful extraction. This complex process is as much art form as it is science and requires experienced growers and distillers working together to ensure a quality product.
(Fact: It takes as much as 12,000 rose blossoms to distill 5 ml of therapeutic- grade essential rose oil.)
Steam distillation is by far the most common method of extraction, but some oils such as citrus oils are extracted through a process of compression in which the oil is squeezed from the plant. A very few essential oils are extracted using solvents that bind with the oils and are later removed from the final product.Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade Essential Oils
Essential oils are used for a very wide range of emotional and physical wellness applications. They can be used a single oil at a time or in complex blends depending on user experience and desired benefit. Essential oils are usually administered by one of three methods: diffused aromatically, applied topically, or taken internally as dietary supplements.Aromatic Uses
Our sense of smell influences many physiological pathways including the stimulation of hormones and other metabolic processes. Aromatherapy is founded on the body's predictable response to specific olfactory stimuli. Essential oils are widely used in aromatherapy applications. Certain essential oils, when diffused in the air, can be very stimulating while others can be calming and soothing. Beyond emotional benefits, diffusing essential oils can purify air of unwanted odors and some airborne pathogens. Low or no-heat essential oil diffusers are recommended as they do not change the chemical structure of the oil being diffused. Essential oils can also be used as cleansing and purifying additives to laundry and surface cleaners throughout the home.Topical Uses
Due to their natural molecular composition, essential oils are easily absorbed by the skin and can be safely applied topically. Application of essential oils can have immediate, localized benefit to the target area of application. They have restorative and calming properties and can be used effectively with massage and beauty therapy. They are also natural disinfectants. The chemical structure of essential oils also allows them to be absorbed into the bloodstream via the skin for internal benefit throughout the body.Internal Uses
Essential oils can also be used as dietary supplements supporting a variety of healthy conditions. Some essential oils have powerful antioxidant properties while others help support healthy inflammatory response in cells. Many essential oils are generally regarded as being safe for dietary use, but some oils should not be taken internally. Do not use any essential oil product internally that does not have the appropriate dietary supplement facts on its label.
Using essential oils can be both profoundly simple and life changing at the same time. Working with someone who has used essential oils before will help first-time users have a more beneficial and enjoyable experience. A large amount of information is readily available for those desiring to increase their knowledge of essential oil applications.
(Be sure to use only 100% pure therapeutic-grade essential oils and follow all label warnings and instructions. Essential oils should not be used in the eyes, inside the ear canal, or in open wounds. If redness or irritation occurs when using essential oils topically, simply apply any vegetable oils such as fractionated coconut oil or olive oil to the affected area. Consult your physician before using essential oils if you are pregnant or under a doctor's care.)Extraction Methods
Essential oils have been used throughout recorded history for a wide variety of wellness applications. The Egyptians were some of the first people to use aromatic essential oils extensively in medical practice, beauty treatment, food preparation, and in religious ceremony. Frankincense, sandalwood, myrrh and cinnamon were considered very valuable cargo along caravan trade routes and were sometimes exchanged for gold.
Borrowing from the Egyptians, the Greeks used essential oils in their practices of therapeutic massage and aromatherapy. The Romans also used aromatic oils to promote health and personal hygiene. Influenced by the Greeks and Romans, as well as Chinese and Indian Ayurvedic use of aromatic herbs, the Persians began to refine distillation methods for extracting essential oils from aromatic plants. Essential oil extracts were used throughout the dark ages in Europe for their anti-bacterial and fragrant properties.
In modern times, the powerful healing properties of essential oils were rediscovered in 1937 by a French chemist, Rene-Maurice Gattefosse, who healed a badly burnt hand with pure lavender oil. A French contemporary, Dr. Jean Valnet, used therapeutic-grade essential oils to successfully treat injured soldiers during World War II. Dr. Valnet went on to become a world leader in the development of aromatherapy practices. The modern use of essential oils has continued to grow rapidly as health scientists and medical practitioners continue to research and validate the numerous health and wellness benefits of therapeutic-grade essential oil.Uses of Essential Oils
Essential oils are natural aromatic compounds found in the seeds, bark, stems, roots, flowers, and other parts of plants. They can be both beautifully and powerfully fragrant. If you have ever enjoyed the gift of a rose, a walk by a field of lavender, or the smell of fresh cut mint, you have experienced the aromatic qualities of essential oils. In addition to giving plants their distinctive smells, essential oils provide plants with protection against predators and disease and play a role in plant pollination.
Essential oils are non water-based phytochemicals made up of volatile organic compounds. Although they are fat soluble, they do not include fatty lipids or acids found in vegetable and animal oils. Essential oils are very clean, almost crisp, to the touch and are immediately absorbed by the skin. Pure, unadulterated essential oils are translucent and range in color from crystal clear to deep blue.
Try this at home: Squeeze the peel of a ripe orange. The fragrant residue on your hand is full of essential oils.
In addition to their intrinsic benefits to plants and being beautifully fragrant to people, essential oils have been used throughout history in many cultures for their medicinal and therapeutic benefits. Modern scientific study and trends towards more holistic approaches to wellness are driving a revival and new discovery of essential oil health applications.

These 6 Channels are ESSENTIAL to integrate into your value system in life if you want to live free from pain
and full of VIBRANT ENERGY! I was reading Dr Morse's book today The Detox Miracle Sourcebook
where he shares simple, clear, effective and valid keys to understanding the human body and all it's various systems.
One of the insights I gleamed today from this powerful tome was this idea of these 6 channels or gateways of nourishing our soul or destructing it. It's so simple, once we own it and live it - to experience a pain-free life. Now, I will be the first to admit that I need help and I am committed to learning this type of information and actually remembering what I have always known.
Just think about these 6 channels and what types of things you CHOOSE to put into them every day. Dr. Morse often talks about how our bodies are really just a bunch of cells and two fluids. We all know now that Who We Are is much more than our physical bodies...but we also know that ALL THINGS and NON-THINGS are connected. So what we think and feel
even have an effect on these two fluids that carry out our life experience. These two fluids are blood (carries nutrients and energy to the cells and tissues of the body) and lymph (which helps to carry away the exhaust or waste out of our tissues and cells). It's that easy.
So what you are eating, drinking, thinking, feeling, putting on your skin or breathing is either allowing those fluids to FLOW FREELY and ABUNDANTLY or stagnate them and slow them down.
Neither way is right or wrong, it's just a matter of what you would like to experience. And it just so happens that the Vital Life Foundation is a livity (lifestyle) that encourages and empowers others to maintain a radiant, powerful, loving flow of the vital life force and of these two main fluids.How you Think:
"I love myself" = FLOW
"I hate myself" = STAGNATIONHow you Feel:Acceptance and Appreciation = FLOWResentment and Judgment = STAGNATIONWhat you Breathe:Long, Slow, Deep and Consciously = FLOWShort, Shallow, Unconsciously = STAGNATIONWhat you Put on Your Skin:Natural Herbs, Foods and Organic Edible Products = FLOW
Toxic Soaps, Chemicals and Pharmaceuticals = STAGNATIONWhat you Drink:Living Structured, Antioxidant Rich, Alkalinizing Fluids = FLOWDead acidic-forming toxic liquids = STAGNATIONWhat you Eat:Fresh, Living and Cultured Foods = FLOWDead, Processed, Denatured Foods = STAGNATIONI've laid it out in pretty simple terms and we could write a whole book just on this subject, but I think you get the idea - and hopefully this is a supportive and enlightening reminder of how you can LOVE YOURSELF and your PLANET even more today and tomorrow.
