hungry for change

our community is gradually digging back to their roots, the home made goods, gardens grown, fresh milled grains, home grown livestock.....lets continue and shed some light on the blissfully ignorant. our ancestors really did take the time to prepare a meal, to taste their meals, and took the time to grow them, because for one they had to, but for two they didn't know of any other way:) our fast food, convenient diets are taking their toll on our health and our happiness. slow down, take the time and you might just love the result. good luck!!!

if any of you are aware of a canadian version of this do tell!! ")

do your research and be informed

Regarding the H1N1 scam (in my opinion, anyway):

RE: GERMS, germs.....

hand washing is important, hand sanitizers (alcohol based) have there concerns as well. they upset the "good" flora environment on our hands and can be toxic to children, as they always have their hands in their mouths. so go EASY on the squirts.

all i can say is DON'T believe EVERYTHING our media dishes us. follow your intuition not your tv. special thanks to Dr. Amell for the link.

i think in a world that is very intense, it takes great skill and guidance to retain what we need to retain and channel what needs to be released. so one thing i have learnt as a therapist, mother, wife....a person on life's journey.....is simply this:
allow yourself to be inspired and be inspiring.
these things keep us passionate and true to our inner self.

there's no place like ohm

vital balance bodyworks uses tuning forks in our office. and now we have them available to buy as well. inquire within. we have found the tuning forks as well as the pythagorean tuning chimes to be very useful in opening up new healing pathways, especially for condition that have been chronic. ie, arthritis, depression, hormonal...etc.
"think of the ohm tone, and all of its octaves, as a sound healing tool that works like a 'switch' to reset your vibrational motherboard." -marjorie de muynck

a friend emailed this to me. it's excellent

This is something we should all read at least once a week Written By Regina Brett, 90 years old, of The Plain Dealer, Cleveland , Ohio
"To celebrate growing older, I once wrote the 45 lessons life taught me... It is the most-requested column I've ever written. My odometer rolled over to 90 in August, so here is the column once more:
1. Life isn't fair, but it's still good. 2. When in doubt, just take the next small step. 3. Life is too short to waste time hating anyone... 4. Your job won't take care of you when you are sick. Your friends and parents will. Stay in touch. 5. Pay off your credit cards every month. 6. You don't have to win every argument. Agree to disagree. 7. Cry with someone. It's more healing than crying alone. 8. It's OK to get angry with God. He can take it. 9. Save for retirement starting with your first pay check. 10. When it comes to chocolate, resistance is futile. 11. Make peace with your past so it won't screw up the present. 12. It's OK to let your children see you cry. 13. Don't compare your life to others. You have no idea what their journey is all about. 14. If a relationship has to be a secret, you shouldn't be in it. 15. Everything can change in the blink of an eye. But don't worry; God never blinks. 16. Take a deep breath. It calms the mind. 17. Get rid of anything that isn't useful, beautiful or joyful. 18. Whatever doesn't kill you really does make you stronger. 19. It's never too late to have a happy childhood. But the second one is up to you and no one else. 20. When it comes to going after what you love in life, don't take no for an answer. 21. Burn the candles, use the nice sheets, wear the fancy lingerie. Don't save it for a special occasion. Today is special. 22. Over prepare, then go with the flow. 23. Be eccentric now. Don't wait for old age to wear purple. 24. The most important sex organ is the brain. 25. No one is in charge of your happiness but you. 26. Frame every so-called disaster with these words “In five years, will this matter?' 27. Always choose life. 28. Forgive everyone everything. 29. What other people think of you is none of your business. 30. Time heals almost everything. Give time time. 31. However good or bad a situation is, it will change. 32. Don't take yourself so seriously. No one else does. 33. Believe in miracles. 34. God loves you because of who God is, not because of anything you did or didn't do. 35. Don't audit life. Show up and make the most of it now. 36. Growing old beats the alternative -- dying young. 37. Your children get only one childhood. 38. All that truly matters in the end is that you loved. 39. Get outside every day. Miracles are waiting everywhere. 40. If we all threw our problems in a pile and saw everyone else’s, we’d grab ours back. 41. Envy is a waste of time. You already have all you need. 42. The best is yet to come. 43. No matter how you feel, get up, dress up and show up. 44. Yield. 45. Life isn't tied with a bow, but it's still a gift.

money with legs:(

yikes, we have always based our office on trust, love and a safe place. when someone invades your space and steals money, it rattles your confidence in humanity and the strong cords of trust that bind community. that being said...onward....

to you thief(s),
we hope through this experience you will come full circle to a deeper inderstanding of yourself and gain a deeper sense of self respect, that you in fact could have easily made the money yourself instead of stealing from your kin folk. and heh, i guess if you don't really care....i suppose that karma will come back at you too, and eventually the universe takes care of these things.

thank you to the many people we do business with that maintain such a wonderful relationship, kudos to you!!!
glenda, jennifer & kerri

ps if for some reason the person that dealt the crime is reading this, feel free to keep the cash but please return the other things, just set them outside our door and we'll leave it at that.
