Still believe polio was eradicated by vaccines?

Information Age

The information age we find ourselves in apparently, comes with lots of misinformation.  Hardly anything is new about that tactic. What is new is that we receive more information faster, and it is up to us to discern what to take, and what to leave. It is helpful to use your intuitive resources to come up with key words to google and find facts, but also important to make sure these facts are backed up with actual research anyone can view. More facts are coming out. Watch & hear Dr. Humphries talk on what polio really was, and has morphed into. Everything she shares is backed up with research literature and statistics.

All along of course there have been and still are simple ways to bring people with “polio” (a/k/a guillain-barré syndrome, aseptic meningitis, and/or transverse myelitis) symptoms back to health.

Flu shots for dogs?

Anyone hear about the “new flu virus that is infecting dogs”? Hmmm. This dog reminds me to listen up, and listen in. Consult your intuition before making decisions. Of course educate yourself. Naturally conventional vets are trained to recommend all vaccines, though many today are looking for some real answers when they experience how vaccines actually compromise immune systems in pets, just like in humans.  It helps to take a look at what holistic vets are sharing on the issue:

As always, take what resonates, leave the rest.

On Love & Sex. Take 5 – Snake Year: Intuition & response-ability


Writing on this subject turns out to be not a daily thing. No excuses, it is what it is. The rant on *Good Sex* is there, but not ready to be expressed yet. So today we are covering something that has everything to do with engaging all the senses, an important element in sexual exploration, and really in navigating through how we relate to reality.

Just notice how much information is coming our way every single moment of the day if we let it, unless we make a conscious effort to now and then shut off or put away electronic gadgets. Otherwise we get inundated with different versions of truth that are then molded to fit different agendas. Fact is, it’s hard to tell what is true or not anymore, unless we are in touch with our intuition. We all have it, though sometimes blocked or simply not in use, as it is not yet widely shared as an acquired skill and a valid tool. Feeling into a situation is rather important. Equipped with intuitive abilities we can sense our way beautifully through a dance or an intimate love making session.


Intuition allows us to sense unhealthy situations developing, and steer clear of them, or help turn the situation around. Intuition leads to discernment simply by listening on various levels (physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually), so you can tell whether or not something resonates or not. When a situation for example feels sticky, you may want to find a quick exit, and if you helped create it, you may want to ponder from a bit of a distance how to resolve it. When someone has their guard up, you may sense spikes in their energy field. In that case you better retreat or be prepared to listen fully to what this person has to say, and to acknowledge their feelings even if you do not necessarily feel the same way. It opens lines of communication and may create a way for that person to drop their guard so you can begin to connect and engage in honest conversation.

This year particularly is a year where integrity rules. Integrity goes hand in hand with intuition. If things show up in our lives that are not in integrity with who we are in essence, feeling into it (intuit) does provide answers toward more fulfilling relationships on every level of being.

We see around us how old structures and belief systems that are not in integrity are being exposed and crumbling. As the Chinese New Year of the Snake is beginning, the feminine aspect is gaining ground here not to overpower the male, but to come into balance and harmonize with the male aspect. Snake’s gift is turning venom into medicine. And of course snakes are masters in sensuality, evident in their mating dance. Key is to love and honor who we are, and what makes us tick. To get to that it makes complete sense to simply forgive ourselves for doing things that compromised our integrity, for following or buying into trends that never quite delivered on their promise. For making promises that could not be kept. For believing in lies. If we are honest with ourselves, we have all done it. We all have a part in the creation of  dishonest practices. You may enjoy this brief post on “personal assmanship” to see how this works. Taking response-ability is our ticket to freedom in all our affairs.


On Love & Sex. Take 2 *Bad Sex*

ImageSo, after eating some hot Indian spicy snack, warming up by the stove, at least I feel warm inside and out. The list of excuses not to even talk about sex continues. So many things on the “to do” list. And to tell you the truth: If hubby walked in and looked at me a certain way, talking to me in the kind of voice that just stirs up the waters in the depths of my belly, all of those things on the list could be there a while longer, without a worry on my mind about it.

But then to write about it? This is a public blog. What was I thinking? I wasn’t thinking. Signing up for this had nothing to do with thinking. I was feeling something. I am a woman. One who has things to share on the subject. One who was fortunate enough to run into just the right situations, information and mentors on the subject.

Sexual arousal is a natural thing, just like eating and drinking. Without it none of us would even be here. Even little ones experience arousal, and have their ways of exploration. If we haven’t blocked out our childhood, we may still remember innocent explorations. That is if we were lucky enough to have no interference from adults who had poor guidance and discernment in what was sexually appropriate at the time. So why the hesitation? All opinions about puritan and other unhealthy, unnatural influences from organized religions aside, all reservations about good taste and so on aside, I am doing this self imposed assignment.

So let’s talk about it. One thing needs to be said upfront: I am writing from either personal experience or what I have witnessed along the way through people who were kind enough to share. I have a boundary here, and it’s nobody’s business but mine.

I don’t know why but bad sex is the first thing that comes up. Why not?  What is bad sex? That depends who you ask. From the perspective of I imagine either party (if they could bring themselves to be honest with themselves): when sex becomes a chore. It has to be done to allow for some release, as not doing it results in violent tempers flaring, or some other abuse of power situation. A rather sad and lonely form of sex. No communication, just the physical mechanics and then, moving on. This is a pattern that often comes from growing up in loveless situations, even if there is the occasional notion of love, there often is a disconnect by being too much in the head. It can take quite some moving and shaking (of a different kind), soul searching, browsing around to find info that resonates, or running into someone like my dear friend Lynne, before one or both parties wake up to even recognize other patterns exist or can be created. Listen to Lynne of Shades of Momma talk on Pelema TV about how shockingly common it is that women spend many years having sex without orgasm.

Many also consider sex “bad” when the giving and receiving of pleasure is not in balance. This can happen when there is too much judgment going on and no actual connection is made. Sex can be a way to get out of your head, but not when you have Mr. or Mrs. Judgerson going on and on in your head. Breathing, deep abdominal breathing is an essential element of opening up to yourself and your partner. And eye contact. That does send the Judgersons packing.



Another form of sex can be so bad, it’s actually good for some. Therapeutic if you will. It may involve all sorts of toys and rubber or leather attire. And endless play of domination and submission. The play involves trust and surrender. And surprisingly for some, a lot of respect, as the players explore boundaries together, and develop ways of communicating them. Some of this is far removed from what is usually considered natural. Human beings are a wild and colorful bunch. Or at least we can be. On the other end of the spectrum we can be terribly restrained.

Let me just send some Love to all who have read this, and who are triggered by some of what is shared here. Thank you for being here. Feel free to also share what is on your mind.

On Love & Sex. Take 1 – Mood killers & acceptance.


So I had to go and challenge myself once again, by signing up to write a daily blog on the theme Love & Sex. Why is this such a challenge? Don’t I love the subject? Sure I do. Juicy enough of a subject. So what’s the problem? The excuses start to come up, as today is day two, so now I have to make up for yesterday by writing two blogs on the subject. (Laughs at self).

First of all, this is my first Winter Upstate NY, and the temps are frigid. I am dressed in layers of clothing, and the life force is hiding somewhere deep in my bones. My pc is on the front porch next to a wall of windows overlooking a lake and mountain views. That could get me in the mood, but the cold seeps in from the windows and the floor. Cold can kill the mood. I had these ideas of ice skating on the lake, but that remains just an idea as facing the cold literally hurts one’s face. Having been born in moderate weather, I was not made for the cold. What to do? I would take refuge in a sauna, but there isn’t one anywhere near me. Peeling off my clothes for a steamy session is far from what I see within the possibilities. I took my last shower yesterday, and today I just quickly washed up by the sink. Sure, I love a hot shower, but then afterwards I have to brave the cold. I like to take my time lathering on moisturizer and going through various grooming rituals. Not so much now. I moisturize because otherwise my skin turns to sandpaper – yes, I tried just not moisturizing. So now I do make a point of moisturizing, giving my skin some love as I do it. Quickly though!

To make matters worse, the kids are fighting. Nothing like a fight that kills the mood, and it distracts me from my task here. I stop and just listen. I let them sort it out. They are both crying now. And laughing. Sorting it out.

I was supposed to write about Love & Sex. How I am doing so far? Loving one’s skin. That’s how far I got. And nothing really about sex, except the absence of it.

It’s okay. I accept this is where I am right now. So I forgive myself for not putting out the thought provoking bits that would constitute the kind of first blog I had in mind on the subject. I love myself enough to allow things to be what they are. Twenty seven more to go. After warming up by the wood burning stove, let’s give it another go.
